Junkship is a game about being an interplanetary arms dealer. You can design, build, and sell any weapon you can imagine. Will you use your skills to help ensure peace? Or will you play one side off against the other to keep the wars (and contracts) coming?

The game is written in C++ using a custom engine utilizing DirectX 11, and features extensive use of procedural content generation to build unique solar systems at runtime using the GPU.

The website is built using backbone.js, require.js, and ASP.NET MVC 4 and uses the facebook graph API for user management. The website also features an OAuth 1.1 API for programatically posting fail beers, for example you could integrate failbeer.com with a continuous integration system for automated fail beer postings when the build is broken.

MGDF is an open source framework designed to make developing, installing, distributing, and updating games easier. The framework uses DirectX 11 for graphics, DirectInput/XInput for user input (has full support for the xbox 360 controller), and OpenAL for audio (supports 3d positional audio and audio streaming using Ogg Vorbis). The framework also provides a virtual filesystem which allows easy access to resources stored in zipped archives (new archive formats can also be plugged in).

The Junkship engine is built upon the MGDF framework.

uTorrent Mobile allows you to remotely control uTorrent using your mobile device. You can download the app directly by going to utorrent.jad, or if this doesn't work you can download the application using the download link below and copy the utorrent.jad and utorrent.jar files to your phone before installing. This application has been tested on a Motorola V3x, and Nokia 6120 classic. It has been confirmed to work on most Nokias, and Blackberries, and should work on anything else that supports j2me applications.

In order to be able to use this application, you first need to ensure that your WebUI has a publicly accessible URL, this usually involves setting up your router port forwarding rules so the webUI server is accessible. Once this is done, start the application and enter the url of your webui (dont include the /gui at the end of the url, this is appended automatically) and your username/password, from there you should be able to view and edit all your active torrents.
