Where’d The Summer Go? Oh, It’s Still Here

Royfuss Games Home Page

A lot has been happening, and I have not gotten a chance to write any of it down. I have a few longer pieces of writing I need to get written, but I need to find time. At the same time, I need to do a post before August is over. So, here is a quick update on what I have been doing. I have been pouring a ton of time into redoing my video game database. It has evolved over the years, and I actually overhauled it in 2021. There were things missing, and I ended up creating a … Continue reading

Web Design Antivenom

It has been a productive year for the website. I got “Games of 2021” out the door on time. I got the appendix updated. I also got my old Blogspot blog brought over and archived. But I didn’t stop there. I made some changes to my pre-WordPress archives from 2005 through 2010. I cleaned up some of the code. I added more pages, so there are less posts per page. It should flow a little better. I also added a “next” and “previous” navigation at the bottom of each page. While I was at it, I added anchor ID’s to … Continue reading

Roy’s Ruckus

I did it. I completed a project. I got my old Blogger blog archived. You can find it here. Most of my thoughts about it are on the home page. Give that a read, and maybe the posts highlighted in the Index Map. I did enjoy going through every single post. I loved seeing myself grow as a writer and as a person. I am glad I spent so much time blogging, and I hope to pick it up again. Maybe not every day though… that was a bit much. My next project is doing something similar to my older … Continue reading

Coming Back

Blogspot before example

I hope you had a merry Christmas, happy holidays, and a happy New Year. We had Christmas early with my grandma (mom’s side), aunt (also mom’s side) and uncle. We did something different this year. We drew names for gifts and limited our presents to books. I got three of the Dune books and three of the Mistborn books. My brother gave me another book, Three Dangerous Men. I am looking forward to reading all of them. My dad gave me some coins that my grandma, his mom, had passed down to him. As always, Santa brought me pajamas. Actual … Continue reading

Backwards Projects

We are nearing the end of another year. For some reason many people look backwards this time of year. I am one of them. I look back at the previous year. I also look back even further. It takes a while to look back across 33 years on this Earth. It’s interesting. As I mentioned in November, I caught the web design bug again. I decided not to redesign the WordPress site, but I wanted to design something. I have been working on multiple projects. I redid the theme for my pre-WordPress archives. It now matches closer to the WordPress … Continue reading

Website Update 2021-11

The old website felt stale, so I did some dusting. I cleared some of the cobwebs from nooks and crannies. Applied a little bit of paint. I’m feeling good about it. I thought about doing a full redesign with a new theme. I looked at some of the more popular themes out there, and I wasn’t feeling anything. I got a few ideas from window shopping. Luckily, Mantra is pretty flexible. It’s the same old theme I’ve been using for… eight years? No, wait! I’ve been using WordPress for nine years. Time keeps on chugging, and Mantra continues to allow … Continue reading

Reconstructing and Recollection

Welcome to “Games of…” wait. This is not right. It’s April. Oh, yes! I remember. I made this, Games of Remaster! I also made this, a proper appendix! When I posted “Games of 2020,” I noticed the number of posts was getting too big to summarize at the beginning of each post. So, I slapped together the old appendix. The gaps between 2012 and 2013 gnawed at me. I thought, “Could I fill in the gaps?” After mulling it over, I determined I could do it and more. For four months I worked on gathering the data, drafting the posts, … Continue reading

More Stream Information

First, I want to point out the Twitch Schedule off to the side. No, to the right. No, a little lower. It says, “Twitch Schedule.” There ya go. Glad you found it. Anyways, I posted times that I am most likely to be streaming, as well as what I am currently streaming, and any future games that I will stream. Currently, I am playing Saints Row IV. I didn’t want to stream it. I wanted to bask in all of it’s glory. It was a good choice. Which brings me to my second topic. It’s a lot of work to … Continue reading

Streaming

Twitch Logo

Look to your right… what do you see? Is that a Twitch Channel for Royfuss?! Why, yes it is! I don’t know how much it’ll be used, but I do have some plans for it. I invested heavily in a second PC that has a super rad capture/streaming card in it. In theory, this will allow me to play my games without stressing my PC any further, while streaming to Twitch, or just capturing data. That PC should be here by the end of the week, so you’ll probably see me do some testing. I’ll announce ahead of time when … Continue reading

A Few Things

Hello. I’ve been lax in my updating, because I’m me. But hopefully I’ll be updating more periodically. The thing is, I never like the look of my websites. I generally like the layout, but colors make me sick after awhile and I neglect the site. To fix this, I decided to download a theme instead of creating one. I found a nice theme that allows me to easily edit and change colors and other things. I like it. So I’ll be implementing that soon. Things to lo0k forward to. I’ll have a tutorial up soon, so the tutorial section will … Continue reading
