to do

2013-07-16

Nekos in Wonderland, a game by the guy who did Okiwi will be added to the external section. Which I guess I'm keeping now. http://socialneko.com/wonderland/game.php.

Twitter turned off their REST API 1.0 and now I need to setup some proxy for Tiny Cartridge app to work. Ugh!

Wow, it's been a while.

The Mind's Eye on Nintendo Video has a link to vote. That link opens the web browser to http://watchmindseye.com/3ds. The page pulls the document back when you pan, it's probably just formatted to do that. I doubt it's JavaScript but I'll check it out. They are using JavaScript.

if (navigator.platform.toLowerCase() == "nintendo 3ds") {
            window.ndsScrollTo = function() {
                window.scrollTo(40, 220);
            };
            window.ndsScrollTo();
            window.setInterval(window.ndsScrollTo, 50);
        } else {
            window.ndsScrollTo = function () {}
        }

I finally launched Phantom on surii.net! My first 3DS browser game.

Finally working on Settings again. I don't get an event when they enter text. I wish I did.

But I do get window.unload when they hit the back button! But not when they refresh the page. Oh well.

There's a Saved Pages section of Nintendo Zone. I wonder how that works. It's not related to the 3DS browser. Is there a second browser built into Nintendo Zone? I'm going to check it out at Gamestop or McDonald's today. It probably just saves content and isn't active, i.e., no JavaScript.

Yeah, Nintendo Zone does have its own broswer. It seems even more limited. I saved a couple pages. I wonder how it saves them and if they can run JavaScript. The pages can also launch the Internet browser. Sadly, Saved Pages only saves a static image for the page. Links aren't even clickable.

I had to switch the OK sound to use input type=range because number now brings up the text input.

prompt is pretty cool & will be useful

Wow, it's been a while. I added a page to display modernizr 2.6 results.

The new 3DS Hotspots page from Nintendo is: http://www.nintendo.com/mobile/hotspot/. I wonder what else is in that mobile folder.

Here's an example call it uses to find hotspots by address: http://www.nintendo.com/3ds/hotspots/lookup?address=%2001970&distance=10&page=1&size=10
