Fix: Buildbox activation issues on load

Buildbox is a wonderful game authoring tool (that spans the whole nocode-code continuum, including the low-code aspect). It now has a free version too with nice templates and tutorials included.

I had an issue with the Windows version (it also has an indentical MacOS-X version since it’s a Qt-based app) where it was complaining about activation issue at startup and couldn’t proceed.

To solve that you can remove activation info (which won’t be removed if you just do uinstall and reinstall) by deleteing the com.eightcell.buildbox subfolder at:

C:\Users\YOUR_PROFILE_NAME_HERE\AppData\Local\eightcell\Buildbox\

Next time you run Buildbox.exe it will show activation dialog and you can enter your registration key (even the free version has one that you can download from your free account at http://buildbox.com)

With the latest Buildbox 3 there seems to exist an extra com.eightcell.buildbox3 subfolder that you could delete or just rename the main.iblicense files in there to main._iblicense. The launch Buidlbox again to see the activation dialog.

There probably exists some bug in Buildbox that causes one to repeat this action often.
So you could add a RESET_BUILDBOX_LICENSE.BAT file to your desktop with the following commands to delete the license file:

del "%AppData%\..\Local\eightcell\Buildbox\com.eightcell.buildbox3\main.iblicense"
@pause

Microsoft Popfly game engine opensourced

Microsoft Popfly was a nice web mashup engine with an easy Silverlight game authoring tool. However Microsoft finally decided to pull the plug off Popfly during some of their restructuring.

Luckily recently the Popfly game engine has been opensourced at CodePlex, so game datafiles backed up using the Popfly Game Downloader tool can be now be launched and played using the opensource engine.

Πάζλ – βρες τα ονόματα 14 πουλιών

Ένα ωραίο πάζλ από όταν ήμουνα "Λυκόπουλο" πίσω στις αρχές τις δεκαετίας του ’80:

Δεκατέσσερα πουλιά είναι κλεισμένα σε τούτο το κλουβί. Μπορείς να τα βρείς; (Είναι γραμμένα οριζόντια, κάθετα και διαγώνια).
