I spoke a bit at the last coffee chat about how I've felt a bit stuck - unable to really dig in to any of the projects I'm interested in right now. To deal with it I've spent the last week having a little solo game jam, doing something purely for the fun of it to get back some momentum. Here's what I made!

More progress on my cutscene & dialogue project. I've just started on editing features today. Not show here is I've also upgraded the timeline to handle scrolling, and setup tooltips. I've also spent a few days on cleanup, choosing nicer looking fonts, and tracking down some graphics performance bugs (this is the first major project on my graphics layer).

More progress on this cutscene dialogue stuff. I've started sketching out a "developer mode" along the bottom you have a timeline that you can navigate quickly, and on the side an info panel showing the data that makes up the current step. All the while it shows you a mini version of what the scene player would display.

More dialogue/cutscene system work. Automatic layout adjustment for window size, text size selection and better precision text layout, automatic text wrapping so I don't have to have newlines in the dialogue text.

Just starting to break ground on a new project. So far it's just an early sketch of a dialogue and cutscene system.

There are very basic controls on the system: advancing dialogue, skipping to the end of dialogue roll out animations or other animations.

I want to make extra sure I've got multi-language text input working so I'm whipping up a win32 input visualization panel.

Another new podcast - this one with VoxelRifts the creator of some really great low level explainer videos https://youtu.be/c4bXBjARdJ4?si=JG5US8WXT1pzQO5J

End of jam report: I added a system for mixing all input tracks into a master track to perform additional analysis & visualization on the combined track. I added a pretty typical visualization for the mixed track that also serves to visually "frame" the video a little bit. I tuned up the effects to make them just right for the final videos. Finally I added command line parameterization so I can reuse the program without having to edit the parameters and generate noisy git commits.

Speaking of git you can now check out source over here: https://mr4th.com/link/podcastoscope

Day 2 progress report: I've definitely got an audio visualizer now. Today my goal was to get it good enough that I would be willing to use to actually render a video for YouTube. The biggest steps forward are a system to analyze when to highlight speakers that does not change too often, or ignore overlapping speakers, and sensitive enough frequency analysis that effects rendered from it really do match what you're hearing. It's still very bare bones, but I think it's looking pretty nice!
