So.. I saw RPG Maker Ace VX is on a 90% discount, only 6 €, and I'm seriously thinking about buying it to make some easy RPG, but then I noticed RPG Maker MV and I was thinking about waiting until it had a discount of that level.

I have no experience nor knowledge about programming, also don't know how Gamemaker will work in the end, yet I saw many people playing stupid RPG Maker games and thought that maybe... maybe... I could get some easy bucks if I work hard in a good RPG game using the engine and then after getting some experience and have some assets jump into Gamemaker and make a beat'em up spin off.

So... what is your recomendation besides stop being a faggot and actually learn how to program a game?

Well, I just want to make a 2d horror/thriller RPG with gun shots instead of magic. The thing is that I saw the two and MV looks much better, specially having an integrated side scroll battle. The easy buck part is just me trying to look more ambitious than I am to be honest, I just want to make a game about monsters in the forest and rednecks and the sheriff searching for lost people, at least to prepare some assets to do a beat'em up spin off where you play as one of the monsters.

So... should I wait for a 90% discount for RPG Maker MV? or will it never come?

I got RPG maker vx on sale with the same plan in mind.

And it is possible to make a game like that.

But a lot of things in Ib and blank dream ect. are done with extra tools that allow you to better customize the game menus, and text windows. These tools also looked a lot more complicated than the standard interface.

Anyway the things called the Luna Engine.

MV might allow you to customize all that stuff, with a friendlier UI, but I'm not sure if it does.

I figured it was better for me in the long run to get GMS off that humble bundle, and take one more stab at coding.

Sounds like a fun game. Good luck.

>So... should I wait for a 90% discount for RPG Maker MV? or will it never come?

VX Ace is on sale because of how old it is. So, although MV will probably get a 90% discount, it won't be for at least 2-3 more years. It wouldn't make sense to wait that long.

Buy a tiny budget VPS for like $10 a year. Good experience seeing up a LAMP stack. It takes like 2 hours tops and after that you can get a job doing it too.

Find cheap hosting here. http://www.webhostingtalk.com/forumdisplay.php?f=104

Then register a domain and point to it. Set up whatever site backend you want. You will have a really useful web server you can do anything with, including running a budget VPN.

Guys, I have these two friends and they told me they want to make a puzzle game. Neither of them have any programming experience. Having failed my first year of CS I know what a challenge programming can be.

I set the bar low and told them to learn python and found suitable libraries. They haven't bothered to learn any python nor read the documentation I provided. I told them to hold off UI design until they understand the libraries and their capabilities but they have spent all their time (2 months) drawing pictures.

Now they have declared they are moving to the Unity engine because one of them watched a YT video where the guy made a game using no code. I told them they still need to learn programming but now it will be C++ which is more difficult. They said that's fine, like they completely ignored the words coming out of my mouth.

The moment one of them said "game engine" I immediately quit in my head.

I feel fairly confident they are going to fail hard. I have decided to just let them do it if they aren't going to listen to me anyway.

What do you think their chances are? Can a couple of idiots with zero experience make a game using Unity?

I made one or two decent games in flash with no programing experience whatsoever.

I even managed to make a dynamic inventory system using just move frame actions and change x/y positions.

It was a fucking headache to figure out, but it was satisfying as fuck to pull off.

I don't like to consider myself an all knowing being, but truth be told I am rarely surprised by anything. If they manage to surprise me, I might die from shock.

On a separate note, well done on the flash work. I knew a couple of guys from my entry level IT course who went on to get degrees in "Flash design" instead of computer science. Seeing the state of flash today, I bet they have regrets.

What sort of constraints do people typically put on themselves for a "low poly" artstyle?

Do they limit themselves based on tris, verts, filesize or something else I can't think of?

really just use as few polys to make a strong silhouette of the character, games like minecraft do this poorly as all the models are virtually the same and don't accurately represent the object

Is there a good, standard way to do 3D animation? I've been working with Blender, exporting with Collada, and exporting my animations in BVH format, but it's pretty flawed. Namely, I really wish it could be one single file for the whole thing with animations (though I don't care so much about this point. I could handle 1 file for mesh and bones and one file per animation), and Blender's BVH output outputs every single frame independently instead of using proper keyframes (ie. if I have keyframes on frame 1 and 15, BVH instead outputs all interpolations between these keyframes, instead of just giving me the keyframes and letting me interpolate; I shouldn't have to ship a new set of poses to the GPU every frame).

If there isn't anything, I'll just have to output collada plus some hand-made format for rolling into my own format.

Note that I'm doing C++ and OpenGL, so I'm not doing anything that can be solved with a Unity or Unreal solution or anything like that.

I did find it. Collada works for animations, I was just on an old version of Blender that didn't handle it right.

I don't get this mentality. Same thing with lowpolyfags. It's not a crutch, it's a fucking limitation. Pixelart isn't easier than drawing, you're literally giving yourself a smaller canvas and tools. Just fucking learn to do art in general and then specialize from there.

Just because it takes less place on the drive doesn't mean it was easier to make.

Keep cinematography in mind when you consider using references for your art.

and especially when you are working on the backgrounds.

Exagerating the focal depth makes your flat sprites more beleivable, it makes edges of platforms easier to notice, and it makes the room look less cramped while still showing the same amount of the level.

For a fighting game, or the battle screen of an rpg, using a normal view will make the player feel closer to the action, using a closer feeling view with a platform game, however, can make the world feel toy sized.

Think about it like your own one edge of a canyon, and your using binoculars to watch a guy on the other side of the canyon clime up to the top.

Processing is based on Java and (assuming this is the same Processing by https://processing.org/ then it's not good for anything beyond very very simple games. I used it for like a month while learning in College and it crashes hard once you have really anything beyond simple stuff on the screen.

Use unsigned long longs for logic/world ticks, and doubles or floats for interpolation/extrapolation. Your game will still look smooth, but your netcode will be saner.

How do I practice?

Are there common ways to warm up before designing and coding a game?

Stretches or drills I can excercise to throw myself into it?

Like maybe recreating a randomly selected wario ware game from scratch or something.

would that help me in the long run, or would I just be wasting my time.

Pretty much any programming will help you, so long as you pay attention to it. Just start somewhere and then ask questions as they arise. The important part is starting.

On the other side of this, make sure, when you do something, you understand why you're doing something, rather than just the specific thing you did. As long as you learn something, you didn't waste your time.

If you want to make games, then you have to smart small and work your way up. Make simple arcade games in your language of choice. IF you do decide to do a project, make sure to finish it.

If you just want some programming exercises, try these sites:

This is also a good idea if you want to explore something that is out of your level of experience. Scour github for a simple open source platformer or something; there are plenty out there.

Object-Oriented Design kills performance in some places. This is something I've been banging my head over for the last few days and decided to create a thread to share what I've found/Maybe others can help.

The basic idea is: Remember what you're programming on. Your CPU is 10-20x faster than your memory. Your CPU also has a little chip of memory called cache. The idea behind DOD is you try to use this memory as much as possible to avoid as many lookups as possible. The most common way to do this you make very very small data objects (important because theres not much cache memory) and put each object in its own giant array of its relevant objects. Then your cache can load this array in and you can just run through it once, instead of jumping all over the place around an array of objects constantly dereferencing shit and making the CPU do all sorts of lookups.

A basic example of this being implemented:


''OOP''
Class dog {
sound bark;
attack bite;

''DOD''
std::vector<sound>
std::vector<bite>

This way it's all organized in a way so when you play your sounds, you just send the sound vector to the sound processor class and it just runs through the vector (preferably &(vector[0]) so it's the raw array) and does what it needs. There is no unnecessary data being passed over.

This video has a ton of really good information on how caches work in general.

Ubisoft uses global lists. Not singletons, just straight up global lists. They have a singleton to initialize and destroy it, but that's it. OOP is a meme that will fuck up your engine hard if you believe in it too much.

It's not that OOP is inherently bad, it's just that everything has a time and place. OOP emphasizes encapsulation, which means that it cuts down on race-conditions (used correctly) and makes code easier to understand what each objects does. It also helps with code-reuse, which cuts down on development time. The converse to this is that OOP has more overhead, so when you need to do something quickly or many, many times, it's more effective to make use of more DOP style of programming. The best programs will have a combination of both where it makes sense.

I didn't mean it was bad, it's just been catapulted into meme status and it's out of hand. It's fucked me over so many times because I buy into this "never use globals", "encapsulate everything" shit. The OOP meme makes you think you should use objects at absolutely every chance you get,but real world devs basically break code down into "Code that runs 90% of the time" and "Code that runs 10% of the time". You use OOP in one DOP in the other.

For about a year now our development team "Mobius_Trip"

has been working on a 3D platfromer in the vein of Banjo-Kazooie and Super Mario 64

named "Anton & Coolpecker".

A&CP is supposed to be a non-budget/non-profit labor of love project to celebrate

a genre that has only recently been revived by projects like Yooka-Laylee and A Hat In Time.

We aren't trying to compete with any other project but rather add something to the pile

and contribute our support for a community that has been forgotten by the games industry.

We are a very small team consistent of very talented people

who have contribute a lot of art, music and even code assets

and you can play the current early alpha build here: https://anton.anticruft.com

(the second to last build like master.454 will always be the newest one)

We're currently in the middle of fine tuning the controls and building the tutorial level

but unfortunately we still lack programmers and concept artists which slows down development progress quite a bit.

More information about the game here:

https://docs.google.com/document/d/1IpxfRFI-V29xxWRhlK0t03qB4FiiO6FA5JwJZB-E9E0

You can listen to the OST here:

just admit it. its dead. pretty much abandonware at this point.

i dont blame them. /v/ is full of nothing but useless, shit human beings who are nothing but consumers (particularly i am no exception) and when you go ask other chans for help the BO goes apeshit on you because he's a fucking imbecile. the fate of every chan project ever.

If the project is pretty much abandoned, at least open source the code. I'd hate to see another Mega Man VR. At least dump the code so something useful may eventually come of it.

Nigger, the project's been open source forever now. Holy shit this is common knowledge.

You can literally look up "Anton Coolpecker Bitbucket" and you'll get the source code + a glimpse at their progress.

Glad to know you guys didn't give up, keep up the good work

When i get my game on demo stage i wanna talk to you guys about trading cameos and shit

Has anyone else been stupid enough to start game programming by making their own engine?

Let's talk libraries, architecture and tool development.

So after a year in Java, then ditching it to rewrite in C++ another 4 months, my engine is finally coming together.

2d voxel game. All entities are voxels. Basically 2d Starmade.

Space partitioning:

unordered_map<uint64, Bucket*>

key = ix+iy<<32

People always say you need rectrees, but I find this works really damn well.

Trees without researcher-tier allocation are cache hostile as fuck.

This only has 2 dereferences/fetch. My impl is like ~30 lines.

Collision:

Continuous so works at ultra high speed, but currently faster speeds need too much bucket gettings

Kinematics:

Fuck torque calculations, All levers are of length 1 lol.

Netcode:

uuuhh.... "80% deterministic"

Basically fuck networking for now, I can't figure out an easy way to test this, and I do very continuous builds

Those are called pixels.

Since you're on based C++ now, then I'd recommend either POCO, Casablance, or ASIO. Since the standards committee will choose a variant of ASIO in C++20, that may be the best choice tbh.

so C#?

Why not use mono then?

The thing that's fucking me up hard is cross-cutting concerns. I.E., your program will ALWAYS be a tree if you use OOP, so when you have things on one branch that are needed by another branch you have to connect the two somehow.
