eXpansion the story of a server controller for Maniaplanet
This last few years I have spent most of my weekends working on eXpansion. I have literally spent month on this wonderful project. Expansion is a server controller for Maniaplanet, but let start from the begining.
What is eXpansion?
I suppose they are very few who wouldn t now about Trackmania? Trackmania is a multiplayer car racing game. The purpose of Trackmania is doing the best possible chronometer possible on a track. Depending on the game mode some rules might change but the basics of Trackmania has always been speed & speed with simplicity. You have only 4 buttons to play the gam
Symfony2 Website finally online (Updated 25/09)
It has been so long since the last time I updated my website. :D
Finally I am done,
Well not really, during the transition we lost quite a few pages from the old version of the website. I used to have a catalog of all the programing projects I worked on. It has for now dissapeared. But first what s new ?
Finally got a Back Office.
Yes my old websites BO was Work in Progress for the last 6 years or so. And it was never done. For this website I have used Symfony & Sonata Project. So it was a smooth ride. I used the classification Bundle of Sonata for the categories b
Platform.sh A gain or A pain?
This last year (in 2015) I have worked on a project hosted with the platform.sh solution. After spending more then a year with platform sh I wanted to right down what I think about this tool.
First of all, what is platform.sh ?
Platform.sh is a continious delivery clous hosting. Okay, what does that means , it basically means it is a hosting system to host your production, preproduction, integration & a ton of development environments.
Still not very clear? Well simply speaking platform will create a new environment for each git branch you create. So if you create a new branch from th
Drupal a CMS to love or Hate
I have been working on a Drupal commerce website recently and I must say that drupal is a great tool. You can do so much with very little effort without touching any lines of code. The community provides thousands of modules which can be simple to install. There are many great principles behind drupal and it allows you to create a good website with very little effort.
If you wish to do something particular you can always create a new module and basically do anything. You will find plenty of tutorials online and there is plenty of helpful people.
Creating a module in drupal isn t that hard an
It has been a long long time since I have written something here . I recently finished the Lego Marvel game and I must say it was not what I expected.
Surely the game wasn t bad, it was fun to play and there are still hundreds of small tasks I could accomplish. There is a lot of content in the game to explore and a lot of tasks to do but still it isn t as good as it I expected it to be.
What I really like about it is all that is lego, the cars and stuff are super fun to see, all the vehicles and all the stuff you can actually break is incredible. I must say I really didn t enjo
Last week, after having spent my last weekend s working on eXpansion, I was reminded of Ubisoft s new game Watch Dogs. I had seen that the game had very good review by gaming magazines but the a lot of players had started to compare Ubisoft to EA. That made me think, what is happening if we can t even trust Ubisoft?
Even though I don t like all the games they make, and all the decision they take there is one thing that I love about them. What I like is the passion they put in their games. They actually like the games they are making, on presentation videos you really see that, it isn t just a
So I just wanted to re write some overkill scenes from books, movies and TV shows the way I have seen them. I will try to order by power . I put the most interesting ones and try to vary the sources, putting all overkills from doctor who wouldn t be so interesting so just what I think are the bests
Doctor Who - Tardis explodes
For me, the Tardis has always been the ultimate vehicle. I don t like it when in some episodes "she" is described as an old model, and I like it even less when she is in danger because for me it is near impossible to harm her. When on episode 12 of the fifth
Assasins Creed III
As the release date of Assassins IV black flag approaches I decided to replay Assassins Creed III. The main reason for this was the ship missions I wanted to replay. I had a very bad memory of the game as I remember disliking extremely the end of the game. I must say this time hasn t been much different at the end, I still dislike the end but maybe as I expected the end to be bad I enjoyed much more the rest of the game. I must say that the story is good and sound expects the end.
AC3 has probably the best graphics I know of, but well as it is the only blog buster game
My Top 10 Authors
I wanted to write something like this for a while now but have always delayed it. SO here is a list of my favorite authors
Patrick O Brian
As you can see I have separated the first 5 authors because I don t won t to mix them with the others, they are on a hole other level and the others need to write much better if they won t to catch up. I will explain myself better later on.
3, 4 years ago I wouldn t have put Robert Jordan on the first place with such ea
Rome II - Total War
I have been playing Rome2 for a while now and I must say I am impressed by the game. The developers made huge changes compared to the old games of the series and even though I don t like all the new stuff I must say that in the all it has improved the game a lot. Just before summer after LaraCroft I started playing for the first time Mediaval Total War 2 which is quite an old game already. I wasn t impressed; it was just like the old Total War games with "Only" graphical improvements. But in this last game it isn t just graphics that has been improved but the game also.
The new inte
