answers & questions

i answer anonymous questions you ask, because it's fun.

How hard is programming

it is hard but it gets easier the more time you spend on it.

and what program for programming would you recomend?

visual studio code. i program with javascript/typescript but you can use anything.

what are some twitch streamers that you enjoy watching

i don't spend much time on twitch or most of social media on the consumption side, except for tiktok, which i scroll through sometimes. i like how you dont have to choose what to watch, it's the opposite of how davecode works, a site where you choose exactly what you want and there are no tools that select stuff for you, besides a nonexistant randomizer.

do you have a second favorite food other than chocolate?

yes

do you try other chocolate stuff like chocolate truffles or something with chocolate in it?

yes

who buys you chocolate?

my dontators, my girlfriend, and maybe even myself if i am feeling extra spicy.

are you gonna be making a song/video about chocolate?

yes

also, i recently started eating dark chocolate and FOR SOME REASON IT MADE ME LESS LAZY TO MAKE VIDEOS, is that why you love chocolate?

yes

how is

brilliant.

do u like beans? what's the opposite of a bean?

a neab; plural sneab.

have you heard of SQUARE ONE TV? it's a seriously underrated television program about maths

i have not.

how do you write your songs? do you just write down the lyrics and remember the melody (if there is one) or just have another way of storing the melody? please explain

audio recordings + memorization. use your phone's audio recorder and sing it, however this requires being decent at singing.

would you be surprised if bill wurtz's newest song was called "DAVE / CODE"?

yes.

What will Davecode be like in 2 years?

unbelievable.

How do I develop a good melody?

this is hard. i don't have any good tips for this besides to practice and keep trying!

will you fix elemental 4?

no

what would you program if you were bored

an overly complex personal website

have you had oreo chocolate

yes

do u like milk chocolate?

it's okay.

What is this

the q&a page

have you tried changing things and breaking patterns, having them stay the same and making patterns, changing them between staying the same and changing, and changing the pattern to which you make and break those patterns?

yes! I do this alot.

would you (if you had the time) revive Elemental 3 or would you make a new Elemetel Ps. I like your videos :)

no

https://davecode.me/q+a/211120144829 just a bit of constructive criticism here, i noticed the piano that echoes the vocal melody drowns out the vocals a bit, especially the words "always this way". like you can still make out the words, but they're noticeably much quieter than the piano. could just be my headphones though. that being said, i'm still super excited for the song/video and to see you grow as an artist in the future. good luck dude :3

I will take this into account during mixing.

https://davecode.me/q+a/211110041747 where can i listen to the "mayday song" mentioned here? idk where to find it

when i finish it you can find it on the music or videos page

Do you sugoma nuts?

no

how many letters are in the title of your next song?

6

all of the above

https://davecode.me/q+a/211110041641 Oh. I didn't mean that, I meant something like "working on the content side stuff" or "working on probably software" something

i write them down on the computer, see other questions for some details on this process. but the key is you have to make your songs your own, which unfortunatly i cannot help with much.

how would you feel if someone started playing ace attorney because of your game?

i think that would be pretty hilarious.

Hey dave how do u write ur songs

with my mind.

any songwriting tips? thabk

you start with a core idea, then develop a really god damn catchy melody+lyrical bits. Look at the mayday song's chorus for example, it's a really memorable melody, with some very meaningful stuff packed in them.

if youre unsure on what core idea is, take a walk outside a bit.

What do you do for permalinks with questions that are asked on the microscopically same millisecond?

adjust them to be one full second later

I already did.

Can't wait for new videos, thank you! BZY BZY BZY-

dave caruso whats your country

venus

Why are we here just to suffer?

congrats on 2nd place in lud jam

this is not a question

do u use pure js to make this site

no

What do you f*cking hate?

limits

am i bored?

yes

https://davecode.me/q+a/211103002938 oh no are you actually getting relationships from your content

no

are u orangnsfw1

no

an extension from the a dance of fire and ice / rhythm doctor permission email: can i use music bits and fragments like "weird beat" and "another god damn list bgm"?

yes but link to davecode.me for those, but i'd be curious what time machine model you have since that page doesn't exist at the moment.

have all the vault codes been set up already?

no

okay, if elemental 4 isn't coming back, what about elemental lite?

at some point ill get my static games back on the server somewhere. probably when the "games" page goes up i'll get that all working.

what brand/type of chocolate do you mostly consume?

they are all good

Daisy, Daisy, give me your answer do,
I'm half crazy just for the love of you,
it wont be a stylish marriage,
I cant afford a carriage,
but you look sweet on a seat, on a bicycle built for two.

you're sending your love limerick to the wrong person. i'll forward this to daisy for you. this is also not a question.

what is your favorite kind of chocolate? (milk, dark, white, mint, etc.)

any/all

https://davecode.me/q+a/211029234528 Was Phoenix, WRITE! inspired by Friday Night Typin?

we were actually gonna build a video game version of that but lost interest due to it being too hard and timmy theorized it would have a lack of interest. he then showed me the ludwig jam and saying that it might fit that, then a few days later, the game you see today was born.

i should note that the context of the video is built around a lot of inside jokes about my private discord bot, so an outsider to understand it is going to be hard.

did you intend on making the throw soundtrack have an asian-like style?

no. i dont know what about that ost makes it asian, probably because i've never gone to asia.

Balloony: Wheres my prize? I demaand a prize! Now! Dave: You are not getting one.

have a question permalink as your prize.

:)

are u above 18

sometimes

can you make elemental 4?

i am certain i already did, twice.

i hate you

same

Phoenix, WRITE! is AMAZING. How did you get the idea for it?

the thing on my mind was a rhythm game using the entire keyboard, then timmy suggested we get around the jam's DMCA rule by using twitch clips

how much chocolate energy is required daily for davecode production? (in bars of chocolate)

100,000

Are you going to be making your own DAW for making music??

no

Why is it so hard to have time for everything, and then even if we had all the time we would still be too lazy to do it all.

it's easier said than done. i get this feeling a ton. you think of something and how cool it'l be when you get it, but when it comes time to actually do the thing, it's so intimidating that you cant.

my solution for this is just to force yourself to take the dive, and actually do it. that's how a lot of Pheonix, WRITE!'s features were implemented. i was dreading the code for the duet but i actually got it down in a short amount of time after i forced myself to start working on it.

anyways, ashley is a good example of someone who can force themself to do the task. and v3rb is not so good at this.

Actually if we had all the time don't you think we would all just lay in bed everyday doing nothing?

oh fuck yeah. but that's not how our world works, does it?

what are the vault passcodes

i haven't decided. but also i have. its a paradox.

when will people shut up about elemental 4 its been dead for months

hasn't it been dead for more than that? either way they will never shut up.

password

username

a question

an answer

what's in X:\Media\Audio and how did you make the sound effects in there (for example the ones in I Got This Thing and Place Your Bets)

i remember mentioning the X:\ drive but its actually moved to C:\Cloud, either way i think the SFX you are talking about are a part of free sample packs, which i have over 30gb of. i am not allowed to share the packs directly, and i forget the origins of a handful of them. this goes for most of stuff in the media store, which is worrying because there is original assets in there that i made, and due to the current organization, i cannot share any of it easily.

maybe it's better i keep my media store private, that way i can feel more original while others have to find their building blocks themselves.

will elemental 4 come back?

maybe if you make it yourself.

what is the treehouse supposed to be?

a cool place to have cool things.

can i answer questions and pretend to be you

no

ok, what specific part of your content/website are you working on <b>now?</b> i am really looking forward to what you come up with next for the davecode project, even though i don't know where it'll go. thanks

PROBABLY the software bit. theres gonna be 3 pages to this: apps, games, and nerd gear. they are different types of software, they get their own pages. in the meantime, the next game im releasing tomorrow will be on itch.io
