2021-02-19 - I've changed my plan for the lady bug for nintendo port and decided to write it for the BBC Computer first as I have programmed this machine before many years ago where as the nintendo I have too much to learn about the hardware. The BBC Computer also uses the 6502 processor so once the game is written I will able to port it very quickly onto the nintendo with just some minor changes to match the hardware.


2021-02-13 - Added a new server called Compactor, I was thinking of the trash compactor scene from star wars which gave me an idea to make a game where the arena size shrinks with every round.


2021-02-12 - Ive added player stats (won matches and won rounds) to the servers page, click on a server name to display the stats. Been busy with various things including some mods to the armagetron AI's , nothing complete as yet.


2021-01-24 - Just activated Cloudflare so within 48 hours i'll have a secure connection at https://lovebug.ml.

Quick update, it looks like cloudflare is already active. That was fast.


2021-01-22 - Made some changes to the website html and css which may require clearing of your browser cache if things look a little off, I've also updated the Z80 disassembler to v1.04 with an improved assembly / trace output.


2021-01-16 - Spectrum Computing is a great site dedicated to preserving Sinclair ZX Spectrum information, programs and hardware. They have a friendly and helpful community of electronics and programming experts with an active homebrew section too, they helped me with some useful opcode information that allowed me to correct some errors in my Z80 disassembler project. Thanks guys.


2021-01-14 - Made a new game for my armagetron server called King of The Classic Respawn, its a king of the hill game with a randomly moving zone, classic submarine style settings and no deathzone. I've shut down the zone test server as it's no longer needed.


2021-01-13 - Z80 disassembler
Great news ! I have finished all the opcode decoding and generated my first clean output which can be seen on the projects page.


2021-01-10 - Z80 disassembler
I've put another 5 hours of work into the Z80 disassembler project, its almost done.


2021-01-07 - Z80 disassembler
The Z80 disassembler project is moving forward slowly but surely.


2021-01-03 - lovebug.ml - Registered domain name
I've decided to give a domain name a try. A .cf .ga .gq .ml .tk name can be free for 1 year from Freenom so that'll be interesting. It'll take a while to work its way around the worlds dns servers but hopefully it'll be done within 72 hours.


2021-01-02 - Hosting issues seem to be fixed
I've been using the free web hosting service from Infinity Free for a few years now and this is the first time i've had any major issue. It turns out that a database went a little screwy during a server upgrade, everything is working fine now.

2021-01-01 - Happy New Year
I've just put a new server online called WILDTIGER, it's a clone of WILDCAT but i'm not sure the settings are 100% correct but should be fairly close. If you were a regular player of WILDCAT back in the day and ever visit my clone and notice that something is wrong with the settings then please if you could use the in game /report command to send me a note I'll fix it lickety-split. Cheers.


2020-12-30 - Slowly moving forward
I've started on my Z80 disassembler project but theres still some work to do.

My web host has been having issues for the past few days, Multiple sites including this one keep flipping between working, suspended domain and various error messages. I just have to sit back and forget about it until the problem is resolved as there's nothing I can do to fix it. Oh well.
