Slideshow Player: Pagination support and new music source

Permanent Linkby MirceaKitsune on Tue Feb 12, 2019 5:41 pm

One day after my previous update, I have a new set of relevant changes to announce for the Slideshow Player. Yesterday's discussion can be found here:


I've implemented pagination support for all image and music sources. Plugins can now make multiple requests to receive additional pages, whereas previously there was only one request and you only got the maximum results per page from each source. This allows for more submissions to be pulled and curated, resulting in greater counts and higher quality content.

I have also implemented a secondary music source next to CCMixter. It was very difficult to find a service with a compatible API, but thankfully HearThis has just such a thing! offers a load of new music for the player, further improving the experience of your slideshows.

Slideshow Player: Quality filter and realtime settings

Permanent Linkby MirceaKitsune on Mon Feb 11, 2019 6:05 pm

I made several major improvements to the slideshow player last week. The most significant change is the ability to filter submissions based on quality for both artwork and music; The player will now pick posts with the highest rating within the count specified by the user. Note that this relies on the rating reported by the API of each site, which some sources (such as Inkbunny) don't support: Submissions without a score will default to 0 and end up at the bottom of the list.

The second major change is increased customization flexibility. Users are now able to modify every option in realtime: You may adjust the image or song count while the player is running, content will be added or removed immediately without you having to restart your slideshow. Even keywords and NSFW mode can be edited without stopping the player: New content will be downloaded in the background once you finish typing, the new submissions are applied seamlessly once all plugins finish working.

You can try Slideshow...

January status update

Permanent Linkby MirceaKitsune on Thu Jan 17, 2019 9:02 am

My god the time has passed; I wanted to post a status update right after the new year, but found myself getting around to it halfway through the month. It's so late to say happy new year but I guess it will have to do.

I should first apologize for the lack of activity this month and potentially the next one. I'm still working on stuff but right now it hasn't been easy to spend time on posting updates as well. I'm aware some of you might have gotten tired of hearing this excuse, but at this stage my depression is worsening to the point where I struggle to want to work on anything any more, which I have to as that's my promise for Patreon plus I want to see stuff I've put months of my life into finished.

My recent attitude partly comes from an issue in Europe which I'm sure most of you heard of by now: An insane proposal known as the copyright directive, commonly referred to as ACTA2 and known for its disastrous Article 11 and Article 13. If passed in its current (near final) form, it would...

Point of no Return sources now available on Patreon

Permanent Linkby MirceaKitsune on Mon Oct 08, 2018 2:42 pm

Just a PSA to inform everyone that the sources for the Point of no Return series are now available on Patreon. They will only be accessible to the designated 10$ tier for some time, but the post will become public later on so feel free to note down the link if you can't get this tier at the moment. Like all my drawn art, the series is published under the CC-BY-SA license: Feel free to edit and redistribute but please credit me as the author.

I shall also remind that in roughly a week from now, I'm posting a series of preview renders from my latest animation. I hope to finish the project this year, if not it should be done closely after the end of the year. They will be available to the 5$ tier which covers all WIP posts. I shall only mention that feline lovers will likely be happy about this one ...

Status update for October

Permanent Linkby MirceaKitsune on Wed Oct 03, 2018 8:36 am

There are quite a few things I need to catch up on. Last month was both a busy and uncertain month, so I didn't have the time and energy to post another status update.

To start from the beginning: The presentation for my 3 RPG games currently in development has just completed. In case you missed it, grab the 5$ or 10$ tier and let me know what you think of what I've done so far! I'm continuing to program those games alongside my animation projects, and may post new sneak peeks from time to time. It will take a good while until they're ready for a beta release in any case.

Now for some good news: I just installed the video card I received from a very wonderful being, who decided to help me when I explained the issues I was having with the old one. I upgraded from my Gigabyte R7 370 to an XFX R9 390. While unfortunately I still don't have GPU (OpenCL) rendering in Cycles for Blender, the system freezes seem to be gone: My computer no longer appears to lock up when running most 3D engines!...
