I made a Push-Box / Push-Block Engine

It’s just some HTML and Javascript, but tinkering with Javascript to make something is just as rewarding to me as playing a puzzle game. I stole most of the level block setup from my flip phone, but now you can easily add more levels just by adding to an array. Something to do… I got the time…

You might be thinking: What the heck gives you the right to rip flip-phone Push Box maps? I just made this for fun to see if I could make it. Actually if you research the game on Youtube, you’ll find many different Push Box versions with identical maps dating back to the original Japanese Sokoban 1981. That’s actually how I have to solve the hard ones, watching the identical map videos.

The game link: http://jakeis.com/push_box.html

If a level is too hard, you can skip to any level by adding/changing the ?number at the end of the URL. It goes 0-14 where 15 is the win screen.

(Feb 2nd 2017 – I just added one line of CSS so the player doesn’t hide the goal spaces with his background color.)

This game uses base64-encoded images so the whole thing is portable. You can save the push_box.html and make any changes you want: add new levels or cheats or whatever. It might violate the spirit of the game to cheat and I assure you every level is passable, but some are even too hard for me.

The walls color is random. If you don’t like the certain color, you can reload and get a new color.

Lark! A post on my guestbook! (Twitter tutorial request)

May 30, 2017 @ 17:48) bumped to Jan 30 because I like this post

I never get any feedback on my guestbook, but sure enough I got a rare comment from one of my rare Greasyfork fans.

Dilbert wants to know how to edit the Tweets for a fake screenshot, but also how to edit like/retweet/reply counts.

This can be done with the element inspector with plain vanilla Chrome, Firefox, Safari, etc. with no addons. (perhaps web dev mode needs enabled in IE; not sure)

Here is a tutorial.

Couldn’t think of anything clever to make the Pope say for this tutorial. I should have looked up a joke.


EDIT: @Dilbert – I don’t know how to reach you, but I’ve implemented in that userscript a string parsing function to simply edit the retweet counts with x[number,number,number,number] https://greasyfork.org/en/scripts/10926-twitter-tweet-edit-for-screenshot

Me animation networking like…

Steven L.
Hi Jake! That’s actually really good. Maybe one day you can get it narrated. I haven’t seen the show, but your animation makes me want to see it now.
Hope you are finding an outlet now that the forums are offline.

This is an old Toonami cartoon Death Note (Yagami Light) and it is becoming American Netflix real action movie… from Entertainment Weekly Tumblr – http://entertainmentweekly.tumblr.com/post/158706049382/shall-we-begin-watch-the-first-trailer-for

Season 1 of Death Note in 8 minutes ^

I accidentally made your gmail a dot co instead of a dot com, and I tried to wish you a happy Canada day on the 2nd of July… July 7th… I want to die… jakeis.com “doing things”

so…

Will Jake Jilg (me) get an Albinoblacksheep featured cartoon for the first time since 2008, this year in September? (fingers crossed!)

If not, we can always get a new (old) season of jakeis.com/germs going… It’s is my favorite self made web comics series (tooting my own horn). The universe is most definitely a toilet. If I posted germs to my landlord’s Facebook timeline, instead of army girl, maybe I’d still have an apartment.

Speaking of AlbinoBlackSheep.com and cartoons, I saw this on Google
So I naturally thought of my Canadian McDonald’s working brother from TrollCatComics.com in this week’s promo video.

He’s Indian (Hindi) and he works for McDonald’s… The irony is not lost on 81 Beef County.

Post Razor Images Online

It’s weird about doing this on a Mac without any special program.

I wrote this! 🙂

Long story short:
I only like to print from Preview.app and it does not do tile printing. (?)

Regardless that there are already many ways to do this, like with Acrobat Reader, I’ve decided to make my own online app to slice images for razor printing.

That’s where you slice/razor all the paper away and concatenate the inkjet prints into one big poster.

Here is the link to the image razor thing… <<link

Example:

EDIT: Seconds later, I realized I had to change some of the jQuery because it acted differently on my server, than in MAMP. It’s working now.

I already used this thing to make this ^ paper blackshirts skull out of four sheets of A4 letter paper, for my black curtain.

Just print “scale to paper” from Preview.app

I also normally post the ?source link for these PHP things, but this one is all Javascript and canvas (a client-side source) so you can see the source normally View+Source in your browser without my usual PHP highlight_file query. The one line of PHP, part, just reflects the base64 PNG binary into a downloadable filename with the .htaccess file.

Quick Image Overlap

Sup! I made another image thing!

Drag and drop multiple images to make them overlap, with optional alpha translucency… For quick easy memes, without having to ‘shop them… I suppose…

link>> http://jakeis.com/quick_image_overlap/ << link link thing

This thing can also be handy for Flag Day!

Or view my source:

and see how you can make it too.

May 14th, 2017 – 5-14-17

Hello. I’m 33. Celebrate a birthday when you are 33. Cake photo from 2013 when the landlord hung the birthday card sign on my door. Carry on.

Google even got in on it. It seems I would have known about this.

I’m 33 and the time calculator I wrote confirms, right down to the millisecond.

In other news, I still have so much to backdate pre 2016 into this new WordPress: posts from my old blog and various deleted Tumblrs. Keep an eye out on older posts randomly appearing.

I saw this ^ in a b-day card. I don’t get b-day cards anymore.
 

RPG Maker MV Plugins By Me

I’m a user known as Mogwai on RPG-Maker-Web Forums. (random name I picked out; movie was made the year I was born)

Here is a short list of plugins I made, with screen shot samples.


PushEvents.js (push character/events plugin)

 


PlayerSelfiesFaceset.js (camera selfies face-set plugin)


CharacterFromGeneratorParts.js (dynamically created character sprites)


Export Messages To Text (.txt) – Saves all game dialogue for mass spellchecking


360 Racecar Movement

 


Drag and Drop Convert RPG Maker VX Ace game t0 RPG Maker MV game – VXA to MV

 


And here is a bigger list of all the plugins/scripts I made on request.


May Day – Abilifanxiety!

I’m freaking out right now. I had this when I lived in the city. I thought it was something toxic in the apartment.

So I’m on this involuntary Abilify shot for depression and mood swings. My hands are tingly, my vision is like shaky-cam, and my lungs are being hit by my rapid heart. Last time I was like this was October of 2015. Then, I called a crisis hotline and she just told me to watch TV until it goes away. I started the Abilify shot that month, so I’m pinpointing that as the cause. It feels like when I used to smoke marijuana in 2003 (little kind nugs that look like parade horse poo). That was a thing I never liked, because it was like dying every time, but I had to be a cool, party kid, poser and kept doing it anyway. COLLEGE!

Changing the topic because everyone hates anxiety…

In other news: I’ve got quite a nice little dev portfolio going on; too bad, it’s for a kids’ game making software. Yet, this is the stuff I’ve been working on for the past few months and I’ve never really blogged about it.

https://forums.rpgmakerweb.com/index.php?threads/neat-little-things-ive-discovered.77000/ (I’m the user named Mogwai, not to be confused with the more popular Mog, a guy who writes pro code, and is in the Navy.)

So I’ve compiled a list of all the tutorials and script requests I’ve been doing on the RPG Maker forums. This list doesn’t include my plugin releases, which is something else I need to get on this WordPress.

Luckily my Greasyfork profile has been silent (neither greasy, nor a fork). I’ve seem to have fallen off the grid, so I have more time to work on kiddie codes.

‘Member PacMan?


CLICK HERE >>   http://jakeis.com/pacman.html   << CLICK TO PLAY

I made PacMan in HTML. Something to do I guess.

Like all my HTML games, I used base64 inline files so it’s portable.

It’s also easy to cheat. Here are some cheats using the URL…

  • s=(stage)
  • l=(lives)
  • p=(points)

level 6 with 15 lives and 9999 points for example.
http://jakeis.com/pacman.html?s=6&l=15&p=9999

I deleted my older Flash Pacman because this one is more quality and I don’t have a license for Flash. I also don’t think it’s funny to joke about Pacman popping pills and dying anymore, because things happened in my life since I made that dumb game…

A little about this game:
It’s just another stupid time waster like all my games. Mine is a throwback to the Atari Pacman because the board colors are random. The ghosts are real stupid, but they are also real vicious (go hard or go home). They seem to jump over corners to get you, but I assure you the collision is there in the grid; it just doesn’t look that way because of the CSS3 transitions I animate movement with, and I don’t know how to detect x and y mid-transition.

I made a Time Calculator

http://jakeis.com/timecalc.html << Click; it’s in this link

It doesn’t know Daylight Savings… I don’t care. My dyslexia is spreading to my legs and if I don’t get off the computer soon they will have to amputated.

With this calculator, I learned that I am 32.9013711469929 years old as of this right now.

http://jakeis.com/timecalc.html << Click; it’s in this link

EDIT: I took out the GMT offset for reasons of my own cognitive failure, because it made 1 day = 18 hours in GMT – 6 (24 – 6 = 18) so if you want to calculate GMT/UTC offset, just take any time and, put N for hour in the difference column for time +/- N hours.

Youtube Curl MP4 Link Finder

http://jakeis.com/youtube/

This is an old thing I wrote in php that I had on my Hostgator hosted b9mx.com (a GoDaddy domain which now just redirects to my Freehand MX art blog, the new(ish) WordPress with all my art posts converted from the old Tumblr blog of the same name).

Youtube seems to have changed a lot so I can only get this to work half the time. I’m too lazy to fix it. For functionality purposes, web apps don’t do the best job of scraping the html for MP4 links with economy hosting resources; it works but by the time you download two of them, the third+ MP4 links have already expired because Youtube only provides a temporary MP4 link with each view. It’s the same MP4 provided to you with the HTML5 video player that automatically starts downloading anyway as soon as you view a Youtube video link, that is if the HTML5 player uses MP4 selected by your browser’s preferred video mime type.

I’m only putting this old web app up for historical purposes. I wrote a thing, I’m proud of it, and you can also view its source and see how it used to work on a 2014-2015 Youtube. 2017+ not so much…

The one part of this app that still works perfectly (I think) is the playlist grabber that simply does preg_match on all the video links in any playlist/channel HTML with curl. So you can get a quick list of video links to watch later and online I might add, instead of downloaded to be watched offline like a caveman, because it is 2017 and Youtube online quality is better than ever.

In other news, the subdomains comipo.jakeis.com and fhmx.jakeis.com are now forwarded.

Harold’s MineSweeper ’98

I made two MineSweeper games in one day since I learned the fancy algorithm to spread zero mine bomb spaces to the numbered spaces. The algorithm is a simple 4-direction boolean with recursion.

I made the first one with HTML. I made this one in RGP Maker MV. This one was harder to make. It’s more stimulating because it has music and graphics from RPG Maker. Yay!

Play it Online…
