It's over.

That's it. I give up. I am done trying to make games only to have them not work. It's not fair. As it turns out the problem I had with Insecticide came back. I am just so sick of failing every time I try to do something. So that's it. I'm done coding. I'll still make games that don't involve any programming whatsoever though. Those are Odyssey 1 and ActionMax games. Those are the types of games I like to do because I cannot fail at them. It's just not fair. Life isn't fair, thus I hate life. And that stupid Jaguar game isn't working either. And apparently I offended them so they won't help me any more, so I give up on that as well. Perhaps my quality of life will improve because I won't be so angry all the time because something I tried failed. I know I said this before, but I kept coming back to them only to find I get angry at something that logically shouldn't fail but does anyway because computers hate me.

Just take a deep breath, take a step back, hug a plush, and try to come at this from another angle. It's not the end of the world and perhaps you can try another program. :)

In the 1970's when I was a kid, I wanted to draw a magnetic platter of a disk, using formulas. Couldn't do it then. Not even in the easy-to-use Applesoft basic which was popular at the time.

 

The other day I sat down and made it as fast as I could type. It's been stewing in my head all these years.

 

For shits and giggles I added in the sector and track boundaries.

Oh no... just what we need... another precious flower seeking approval and validation by sulking publicly.

 

You chose your hobby. You make games, some of them work, some do not; some of them are fun, and some are crap. You either suck it up and persevere, or you give up and move on to something else.

 

If you need help, there are people willing to offer (I know I have plenty of times), but you have to be open to do some legwork yourself, not just seek someone to take your code and fix it for you.

 

There's no point in crying in public. It only undermines your character by making you look like a little baby seeking attention.

 

Sorry, but this is not the first time you "threaten" to quit, nor are you the only one who does it. :roll:
