OK two things to fix in this update. Axe on Twitter 2 Dr. It is realistic to get some extra water out of other sources, but the amount you get is inadequate to alleviate your need to drink involving water. Josh Axe is on a mission to provide you and your family with the highest quality nutrition tips and healthy recipes in the world Now you too can easily generate these scripts if you didn't know about the old VBS method of recording playback scripts. That will be the temporary solution until we figure out what's going on and get it fixed, I guess.

Even the 4 level demo is quite a challenge and I haven't been able to play all the way through it in the time I've had available so far. September 1, , Hits. The hit counter on this page rolled over to , at about I refreshed at It doesn't mean a whole lot, but it's kinda cool to see that roll over.
I received an email from Ari Feldman himself, whose name some of you may recognize as the creator of the famous SpriteLib, a free collection of graphics for use in games. It appears he has an updated version of his library which is now released under the terms of an Open Source license.
The new version fixes some minor bugs. An updated scripting wizard is included in both packages. From the creator of the forest graphics comes a completely different library of graphics.
This set it simple but clean and complete. It's very bubbly and colorful as you can see from the screenshot. Be aware that no project is included with this library, just graphics.
May 14, Version 1. The biggest two noteworthy changes are the improvement of error handling, messages and validation and the inclusion of the current version of the scripting wiard instead of one from two years ago. The scripting wizard was getting lots of new fixes and features which many never saw because it didn't make it into the installer. Note that the download's page now lists by default the installer without VB runtime files. I figured it was high time I make that switch because I think the majority of people already have VB runtime files installed now, and I think trying to install them interferes with some people's success on later versions of Windows.
And make sure you have the ability to see system files turned on or you won't see it. Go to Google and type in Scrolling. Then hit "I'm feeling lucky". As of today you'll end up right back here!
Don't miss out on a great new graphics library from "Pax" Jeff C. Jeff has developed some great graphics specifically for the Scrolling Game Development Kit. They are the best GameDev graphics yet and I look forward to whatever future contributions Jeff may have to the project.
Right now, the new graphics library is available as part of a demo project listed in the projects listing. Was this the proverbial "Last Bug"? Only time will tell, but there was only one thing OK two things to fix in this update.
One was removing Quartz. The other was a typo on the Player Settings screen. In the process of updating the install packager, I also upgraded it to use and require the latest version of NSIS version 2.
This version has a fancy new modern UI so all your GameDev project installers can look extra-professional now. Of course it requires that you have NSIS version 2. If you have installed version 1. To fix the problem, you have to do one of 3 things: Upgrade to DirectX 9. You might be able to fix the problem by just copying an older version of Quartz. The file at http: Anyway, if you want the latest version so you can use the latest Install Packager, or just want to read the details of this release, visit the download page or the Release Notes page.
Just bug fixes were performed in this release. Some issues with error handling, sprite motion, and sprite solidity definition were dealt with. Get the latest from the Downloads page. For a complete list of changes see the What's New page from the online documentation. Some minor improvements and bug fixes were necessary and are available in the latest release, which is currently available on the Downloads page.
This can be a great way to make demos and cut scenes or simply demonstrate how to play your game all the way through. Similar code was used to generate the playback script for Rolly the Purple Ball , which plays Rolly all the way through to the end. Now you too can easily generate these scripts if you didn't know about the old VBS method of recording playback scripts.
The new version also allows you to load GDP files so you no longer have to export to XML before using the scripting wizard. Thanks to my younger brother Seth for conceiving of the Record and Playback idea for the scripting wizard and even handling most of the implementation.
I received my complimentary copy today. Click on the image at the right for more detailed scans of the packaging if you want to look for it at your local software retailer.
April 26, Version 1. The day has finally come. A big thanks to aftermath for implementing a new project listing system for me that supports user ratings and comments as well as sorting capability, paging and more! Check it out at the new look and features at the Projects Listing. I want the features of ezboard and the pop-up-free nature of the SourceForge forums, how about you?
But for this to happen we need at least 5 people to go and speak up for the desire to have these forums created, or it won't happen. If this works out, I will make the GameHippo forum the primary forum list it first under Forums and make it the default target for the forums link. All the features planned for version 1. Take a look at the list of changes and then make your voice heard by emailing me or posting in one of the forums. Yesterday morning the hit counter at the bottom of this page was less than away from hitting the , mark.
This morning, it is at , So we've crossed the , hit mark on views of the GameDev homepage since its opening in September of Some of you might be interested to take a look at the old news page for a review of the history that has led up to this point. Are you interested in seeing GameDev translated into Dutch? Voice your opinion in the poll! Ben je geintereseerd om gamdev in het nederlands te zien? Laat dan wat van je horen in de poll!
There is finally a significant collection of graphics that I have managed to pull together from a few GameDev authors myself included to form the first real graphics library. Take your pick of tiles and sprites and whatever from this archive of graphics to make your own project. No more tedious graphic design if you just want to create a simple quickie game! January 1, Games now hosted in separate SourceForge project.
With the new year comes some long awaited catch-up work on the Scrolling Game Development Kit site. In addition to the projects posted yesterday, we now have a whole new SourceForge project in which to host GameDev games. I'm following Induction strictly; why won't my strips turn purple?
Will I lose weight faster if the strips show dark purple all the time? Does caffeine affect ketosis? Will drinking alcohol affect ketosis? Ketones are a normal and efficient source of fuel and energy for the human body.
In a ketogenic diet, such as Atkins When your body is producing ketones, and using them for fuel, this is called "ketosis". Most reducing diets restrict calorie intake, so you lose weight but some of that is fat and some of it is lean muscle tissue as well. Less muscle means slowed metabolism, which makes losing weight more difficult and gaining it back all too easy.
Ketosis will help you to lose FAT. Being in ketosis means that your body's primary source of energy is fat in the form of ketones. When you consume adequate protein as well, there's no need for the body to break down its muscle tissue. Ketosis also tends to accelerate fat loss once the liver converts fat to ketones, it can't be converted back to fat, and so is excreted. Being in ketosis by following a low carbohydrate diet is NOT dangerous.
The human body was designed to use ketones very efficiently as fuel in the absence of glucose. However, the word ketosis is often confused with a similar word, ketoacidosis. Ketoacidosis is a dangerous condition for diabetics, and the main element is ACID not ketones. The blood pH becomes dangerously acidic because of an extremely high blood SUGAR level the diabetic has no insulin, or doesn't respond to insulin It's the high blood sugar, and the acid condition that is so dangerous.
Diabetics can safely follow a ketogenic diet to lose fat weight How do the ketone test strips work, and where can I get them? Ketone urine-testing strips, also called Ketostix or just ketone sticks This contains a special chemical that will change colour in the presence of ketones in the urine. The strips may change varying shades of pink to purple, or may not change colour at all.
The container will have a scale on the label, with blocks of colour for you to compare the strip after a certain time lapse, usually 15 seconds. Most folks simply hold a strip in the flow of urine. Other folks argue that the force of the flow can "wash" some of the chemical away, and advise that a sample of urine be obtained in a cup or other container, then the strip dipped into it.
The chemical reagent is very sensitive to moisture, including what's in the air. It's important to keep the lid of the container tightly closed at all times, except for when you're getting a strip to take a reading. Make sure your fingers are dry before you go digging in!
They also have an expiry date, so make note of this when you purchase the strips Once opened, they have a shelf-life of about 6 months -- you may wish to write the date you opened on the label for future reference.
Ketone test strips can be purchased at any pharmacy, and are usually kept with the diabetic supplies. In some stores they're kept behind the counter, so if you don't see them on the shelf, just ask the pharmacist; you don't need a prescription to buy them.
Ketones will spill into the urine ONLY when there is more in the blood than is being used as fuel by the body at that particular moment. You may have exercised or worked a few hours previously, so your muscles would have used up the ketones as fuel, thus there will be no excess.
You may have had a lot of liquids to drink, so the urine is more diluted. Perhaps the strips are not fresh, or the lid was not on tight and some moisture from the atmosphere got in.
