It’s been a while since I’ve done an update dedicated to Shibboleth. I won’t remember everything, but let’s cover some of my more recent developments. I’ve been spending most of my recent time working on the editor, so you’ll see some screenshots of that. Project Structure I’ve simplified the project structure a bit. Things are now split up more appropriately under the src folder. I’ve also made everything more uniform in functionality.
I’ve decided to make a series for every time I post about how long it has been since I last posted. In this episode, it’s been about six months since I last posted. Arbalest I’ve started porting Arbalest to Unreal Engine 4. I just got fed up with dealing with Unity’s lack of basic features, like drawing debug stuff in play mode and the lack of a decal system! Aside from that, I haven’t been working on it much.
Man, remember that post I made about that game I was working on? Hah. I do, and now it’s rather hilarious and embarrassing that I even posted about it at all. So, what is going on? Well, I’ve had a lot of life stuff happen this year, which has eaten a lot of time from me working on stuff. The game I was working on codenamed Adrenaline is no longer happening.
Once again, it has been several months since I’ve posted anything. I’ve decided it would be beneficial to keep a development log of what I’m working on. So, here it goes. The two main things I have been working on are re-writing the reflection system and how I handle engine modules. My goal is that when writing modules to extend the engine, I’d like as little boilerplate code as possible when hooking up the DLLs.
First off, I’ve begun doing a major refactor of Shibboleth. I’ve currently replaced all of my containers in Gaff with those from EASTL. I have also begun re-writing the reflection system. Hopefully this re-write will come with better functionality and simpler implementation. I have started this work in a branch, so the original code is still about if anyone is curious to run a functional, but broken version of the engine.
