Episode 36: Is It Wrong to Try to Download Files in a Tutorial?


Build: Xcode Treasures: Editing (part 1)

You spend most of your time in Xcode writing code, so it’s natural to want that experience to be as pleasant and productive as possible. For this episode, we ease into editing by checking out the available color themes and where to get more. Then we look at the relevant preferences — including the ever contentious spaces-versus-tabs issue — and see how the jump bar at the top of the editor lets us quickly move between files, helpfullly teasing out useful relationships in our code like counterparts (header and implementation files) and even who calls whom.


Play: Play – DanMachi: Memoria Freese (partial)

Oops. As an experiment, I wanted to come in and play a game completely cold, and chose Crunchyroll’s first game localization, “Is It Wrong to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon: Memoria Freese”. Unfortunately, after about 10 minutes of tutorial, I hit the wall where the game needed to download the rest of its data, and rather than sit on a loading screen for 20 minutes, I called a halt to the evening’s activities. So, don’t bother watching this one; we’ll try it again next episode.

The gambit is on. Tsukiyomi negotiates with Sagiri, leader of the coup d’état, for an audience with the Shogun, who is actually Meiya disguised as her twin sister. Sagiri accepts and the two meet, speaking from the cockpits of their TSFs. Now comes the crucial test: can Meiya convince him to stand down, or at least buy the real Shogun enough time to escape?



I’ll be (co-)presenting two sessions at Anime Central in Chicago, May 18-20, one on the Muv-Luv franchise and the other on Wake Up, Girls!
