pozirk.games

Just bought pozirk.games domain name!
So far, didn’t come up with any real use, but it looks cool. 😎
I wish I could register it with my favorite Internet.bs, but they don’t sell .game TLD, so I have registered domain with crappy GoDaddy, they were the cheapest. 🙁
Btw, .game TLD is also available, but it’s much more expensive.

Let’s Encrypt

Let's Encrypt logo
Thank to Let’s Encrypt, I was finally able to move all of my websites and sub-domains to SSL.
It was not that hard to obtain all the required certificates, install them and setup an auto update.
Most awesome features about Let’s Encrypt are:
– it’s FREE;
– it supports multiple domains;
– while setup, all the certificates are updated automatically;
– I even use it for my mail server, and FTP, and SVN. Ya, encrypt everything! 🙂

I was also able to setup SSL certificate with NodeJS, so back-end for my games will slowing start moving to SSL connection too.

Pozirk.pro и Pozirk.info

Какой-то мудак купил домены pozirk.pro и pozirk.info и сделал точную копию моего сайта.
Если whois не врёт, то этот мудак:
Registrant Name: Aleksandr Stroganov
Registrant Organization: Private Person
Registrant Street: Matveevskoe p
Registrant City: moskva
Registrant State/Province: moskovskaya
Registrant Postal Code: 119501
Registrant Country: RU
Registrant Phone: +7.9836638348
Registrant Email: ffjfjff@gmail.com

Судя по тому, что за последнюю неделю на мой сайт валило куча спам-траффика с сайта onclickads[dot]net, мудила решил сделать точную копию моего сайта и загонять туда трафик, чтобы зарабатывать на чужом контенте.
Для мудака это, видимо, обычное дело, бо на его имеил зарегистрировано ещё куча других сайтов:
mudak

UPDATE: Тут только что заметил, мудак изменил мою страницу About у себя. Теперь разрабтчиком Pozirk Games являюсь не я, а какой-то “Azmun Dedich”:
mudak2

Этот урод начал нагонять трафик на свой сайт по 100-200к в день, частично он перепадает и мне, бо некоторые файлы всё ещё грузятся с моего сайта.
Учитывая что на его сайте стоят мои Google Analytics и Google Adsense, а игры не работают, непонятно нахрена ему всё это надо.

All-in-One Solitaire on hold, All-Peaks Solitaire in development, All-in-One Mahjong

I have decide to put All-in-One Solitaire 2 game development on hold and make All-Peaks Solitaire game first.
All-Peaks Solitaire will be a mix of Tri-Peaks and Pyramid Solitaire with lots of different layouts.

Also All-in-One Mahjong is featured as “#1 Hit Game” at Big Fish Games in Mahjong category both for PC and Mac. And I’m really happy about that. 🙂

All-in-One Solitaire 2

OK, so today I’m finally start developing All-in-One Solitaire 2 game.
It should come with lots of new solitaire games.
I was thinking a lot about which Framework to use and tried many of them, but decided to stick with Haxe/OpenFL. Although, I would say OpenFL is still kind of in beta state and there many features which are not working or working incorrectly.

So far, I’m planning the following games to add:
Forty Thieves Solitaire
6 Peaks Solitaire
Thieves of Egypt Solitaire
Agnes Solitaire
John Town Solitaire
Algerian Solitaire
Earthquake Solitaire
Real Housewives Spider Solitaire
Diplomat Solitaire
Power Solitaire
Vegas Style Klondike
Deuces Solitaire
Golf Solitaire
Wasp Solitaire
Yukon Solitaire

Yahoo Games того

Ну вот и не стало Yahoo Games.
Благодаря усилиям FGL, игроков All-in-One Solitaire удалось перевести на мои сайты.
Мой VPS стал резко тормозить, а я всё никак не могу перейти с Apache на Nginx или ещё что-нить такое же шустрое.
Спас CloudFlare.com, теперь большая часть траффика идёт через него.

All-in-One Mahjong on Big Fish Games


Today Big Fish published my All-in-One Mahjong game on their website.
There are two interesting things about this:
1. A pirated version of the game appeared on Torrents ~1 day (maybe 4-10 hours) before Big Fish release:
https://dark-os.com/viewtopic.php?t=288500
2. I was thinking that the quality of the game is not really good comparing to other games on Big Fish.
Seriously, poor graphics (for regular casual game), average sfx, no storyline.
For example, some of the graphics for the game were taken from Open Clip Art website.
Although, game has its charm and many fans.

Anyway, I have two more sequels, hope Big Fish will publish them too. 🙂
