Dev Hard 3: Dev Hard With a Schedule

#1 Post by TrickWithAKnife » Wed Feb 13, 2013 7:29 am

For those who are curious about what this is, the short version is that we will post our short-term goals here, and our progress.
The idea is that with accountability, hopefully motivation and production can be improved.
If you want to know more, please check out this topic: http://lemmasoft.renai.us/forums/viewto ... 2&start=15

Please post a maximum of one post per person, per day. Discussion about this can be done on the page linked above.

You can format your posts however you like.
It could also be useful if you keep track of your own progress from goal to goal, and add it to each new post you make.

Also, thanks to AxemRed for the catchy title.

The #renpy IRC channel is a great place to chat with other devs. Due to the nature of IRC and timezone differences, people probably won't reply right away.

Goal: Finish 2nd draft for relationship A.
Time frame: Feb 13 - Feb 14 6am PST (don't ask...I keep weird hours)
Progress: I had to remove a bunch of scenes due to their dark tone. Draft is missing some crucial bits and needs to be cleaned up. Not quite as polished as I want it but the new scenes are in place.

Specific challenges:
1. new scenes need to be more light-hearted yet still provide the requisite drama
2. fix flow from scene to scene...lots of extraneous stuff that needs to be deleted and moved
3. work backwards, if I need to, from end back to the beginning


Final product:
Should be a coherent, believable, entertaining story with decent bits of dialogue, if not fully fleshed out.

I'll do this, as long as someone keeps me accountable.

Goal: Finish up some minor scenes for Lady Luck.
Reason: It's the very last thing I have to do for this game, before I'm left with editing and polishing and all that.
Timeframe: Feb 13-15
Status: Not yet completed

Goal: Write a scene for a yuri VN I'm helping with.
Reason: It needs to be written, and while my work day will be cut short a bit that's no excuse to do nothing at all.
Timeframe: Feb 13
Status Complete

Goal: Write 500 words (Still quite busy, but will step it up a little)
Time frame: 14 Feb 2013 only
Progress: Completed
Previous goals: :D

I don't think I'll be able to set any goals for tomorrow. I tend to finish work very late on Fridays and start very early on Saturdays, so sleep is too precious.
