GDC Online 2011 Recap

If you follow me on Twitter, you know that I've been having a blast at the Game Developer Conference Online 2011 all week in Austin, TX (what a fitting destination for a Sooner after thrashing Texas over the weekend). This was my first business conference of any kind, and GDC was definitely a great start. I spent Monday through Thursday learning from the best in the business and getting motivated/inspired to bring some great new experiences to the players of GoldFire Studios games. Even...

miniTip jQuery Plugin

I discovered the wonder that is jQuery during my development of Leet Media, and I have decided to convert all of the sites under the GoldFire Studios umbrella to use jQuery instead of Prototype. However, I've been using Prototip on both BC Wars and PokerRPG, which as the name suggests only works with Prototype. While jQuery has many tooltip plugins (including the very nice Tipped, a newer version of Prototip for jQuery), none seemed to quite meet the needs of my own projects. Many are...
