Post what you're procrastinating on.

I'm currently a system administrator.

Always wanted to learn how to program some simple C and create some simple games.

Is it worth it? It feels like people who can program breathing worlds have a lot more "power" than those who don't.

6e95b4 No.24620


You could learn the blueprint system from unreal 4, its quite easy to make simple games working off the templates

6e95b4 No.24622


Yes, a custom engine that you hand craft will give you all the power you can get. You're limited by your own skill set, time, and computing power at that point.

But you are also reinventing the wheel, and that takes a looot of work. One of the most daunting things about AGDG to me personally is that I have to "wear every hat" and be project manager, programmer, artist, music, etc any of which is an entire team for a AAA project.

So if you want to learn to program, more power to you, but consider what your real end goals are and what the realistic options for meeting those goals are. If you just want to make simple games, why teach yourself to program gaming engines? Take an existing engine, use it to make your simple game.

In other words: do you want to be an artist, and show off your art in a game? Do you want to be a programmer, and show off your programming in a new engine? Or do you want to make simple games, and use someone else's engine to show off your game design and ideas?

6e95b4 No.24626

I can second this. I'm making an engine in Haskell although this applies to an engine made in any language. It's an awful lot of work and you will be better off using an existing engine if you just want to make a game.


If you do want to go down this path keep in mind that you need to do everything. Just as a heads up, robust collision detection is one of the hardest things that you will be implementing in your engine. Book related is a great reference for that subject.

>Is it worth it?

Depends on what you're trying to achieve here.

In general, programming is very useful even if you want to just like make games. You probably won't be using C ever, but it's a very good stepping stone. Even if you're going to use a third-party engine, it most likely utilizes some sort of programming language to describe game mechanics.

I was talking about progress on my scripting language engine thing before.

I've now completed an interpreter which takes my compiled opcode and executes it.

It's now complete with Engine Functions to allow scripts to execute functions in C++ along with Parameters and Return values.

I've got all your standard control structures in place, and functions.

I'm tossing up whether I need to implement classes or not... it looks like an absolute fuckton of work.

Pixelshit won't save you when you're making environments like that.

Start by learning real art, or reconsider what your game should look like.

Pixel art is part medium, part style, and just like any art style, you need to know fundamentals before you can use it. Take some beginning drawing courses, pick up some pencils with different hardnesses (from an art or craft store), and practice basic stuff like two-point perspective, lighting studies, still lives, etc.

Once you understand the basics, try these pixel-specific tutorials:

My biggest complaint about GM (maybe they fixed it with Studio, I don't know) is that deleting objects doesn't "free up" object IDs in the editor

If you deleted your retard smiley face and drew another, they'd start at like ID 1000058 or whatever. It always seemed like a potential memory leak for long-running projects.

Also consider creating objects via the room load script, then you can import/hardcode object positions via a txt file or something.

so far i only have a few events: draw, attack mininion, destroy

only downside so far is that i've probably got too many variables for shit i don't need. but i don't think it will matter, any shitty computer can run a card game.

It's good if used correctly. Hyper Light Drifter looks good with it. But even Hyper Light Drifter has a unique color scheme when using the pixelshit art style. The problem is the sheer number of pixelshit games that use primarily green, brown and other muted colors in their palettes.

>Infantry can be RTS'd in missions

>A room where you can look at a map of the earth to select missions for yourself and your troops, as well as edit your base on the level of "Max troops" "Max Tank" "Max Nuke"

I'm currently trying to code an engine before actually attempting to work on a game.

I've managed to make a movement engine that allows for both platforming and "open world" controls, as well as 8 directional sprites. I also fixed up an aiming and melee mechanic. Right now I'm figuring out shooting, and also trying to fix up a text engine.

Any advice on the latter would be greatly appreciated.

6e95b4 No.25040


>movement engine that allows for both platforming and "open world" controls.

Might be a dumb question, but why both? Are you gonna use the same engine for different games? It'd make more sense to use a shared basis, but modify it as fit for every different game.

As for the text engine, I'm not sure. I'll be needing one soon enough, but I've only really been working on a script, as well as sprites and music when I feel like it.

I do recommend, however, making it so that all the in game text is in one place, or at least in a few, rather than spread apart.

What I mean by that is, when you need a certain bit of text, you call the textbox script, case N, and that "case N" will feature all the text for that one part.

This is a better alternative to calling the text box script, and including the text in whatever object that called it. This way, all the in game text would be spread apart a bunch of objects, which would kinda be annoying.

I might be retarded on the textbox thing, as I haven't done much Game Maker coding yet, but a few in-joke filled "games". However, I think it would be possible to implement it this way.

6e95b4 No.25041


My reasoning was pretty much just "I could re-work the controls for every game, or I could make one large script where I input five arguments and then have different movement." Seemed obvious to me which would be better.

And that's actually a really solid piece of advice. I hadn't thought to do that, but hypothetically, I could set up an INI file (or maybe just some directory inside of the code itself) that has all the lines, and then have a script that just calls on that based on what line I'm telling it to read. Thanks for that!

k so i think i got the basics for monsters and players working

when the game starts, all the cards in the deck are spawned, shuffled, 5 are drawn for each player

attacking works similar to hearthstone, except that monsters won't lose their life, in this case i'm treating it as defense

players can now get damaged too

next i need to do some simple win condition (player's health reaches 0, surrender)

after that i need to start making cards that have effects

Just a suggestion: Don't use 3D models with Game Maker, anon. It'll barely work, hog resources like a motherfucker, be annoyingly hard to use and suck in every other conceivable way.

And if you're thinking about pre-rendering the model and turning it into sprites, ala Mario RPG/DKC, then, again, I have to ask: why? It'd be much easier to just draw sprites at that point.

Go with sprites for GM:S. That's what I'm doing.

Full disclosure, I've worked more with GM8, and only recently started GM:S, so they might have improved 3d model support, but it's not the engine you want to use for 3D stuff. Use Unity if you want something simple for 3D models.

I know that feel, I'll never stop coding for a few days, you just lose it and when you come back it's like seeing a house burnt down, and you have to piece it back together.

Slope collision... well I don't know if you want it in 2d or 3d, but it's not that hard. I know it took me quite some time to figure it out though because I'm slow.

6e95b4 No.25238


2D, I kinda already have slope collision in another game, but it uses a hacky math trick that only works on 45 degree angles (I didn't know trigonometry back when I made it). I want to make something that allows me to set the slope to anything and it'll work just the same.

6e95b4 No.25240


You don't need any math at all for slope collision, you just need to understand the logic behind it.

Does the player encounter a very high object? Stop. Is the object/hill not very high? Move above it and continue horizontally. Is the ground below allowing for a fall? Begin gravity. If not move the player on the ground below and continue horizontally. There, no math at all.

Uhh what? I guess you're using GM or something that just gives you a collide method or something so you don't actually know what's happening behind the scenes.

When you collide with a slope, the slope needs to push you out to the surface of the angle. The only way to find the new position is to use math.

My old math just takes the X depth of the collision, and uses that to find the position in Y.

Turn based, horror-themed RPG. As for the audience, I'm not sure how to put that. I suppose fans of both genres, moreso RPGs than horror games. Not really the Pewdiepie/Markiplier audience, I suppose.

But does one really get to choose their audience, outside of whoever likes the games they make?

I was thinking of social media for convenience of announcements and interaction with people. As in, if by some miracle I build up an audience, however small it may be, I'd want an easy way to interact with them. And as cancerous as social media is, it's the best way to do that.

I know it's pretentious to expect that I'll ever build up an audience, but a man can dream, right?

If you make the game for yourself -- the way you like it, such that it pushes your fun buttons and tweaks your interest nipples, then other people will like it too because there are many people out there like us just minus the ability to just like make games.

All the other issues with social media aside, the most important thing you can do is have some place that notifies the player that you've released an update or a new game. This is the real trick to how you build a community. It takes time, but so long as you funnel those who like your work into your next production the community will grow. Etc. communication systems are just icing.

You should avoid using the outline color that liberally and 'clumping' pixels together. Use it for seperation and work with diagonals and straights as much as possible.

With those few colors you also need to be a bit creative with shading. Shading is super important to get volume across. Also, dithering. Really useful for gradients or 'fluffy' textures, like smoke.

I made some changes that will hopefully help explain what I mean. Always try to make your sprites as legible as possible. Resize your sprite to its original size, go a decent distance away from your monitor and look at it with the eyes of the player that's gonna play your game. If you can't deciper it then you have to go over it again and adjust it.

Been working out a lot of stupidly simple shit in GMS.

Using the image_speed command makes simple shit incredibly complicated, so I have to go around that in autistic ways.

Also, pic related. For motivation, I drew one of the characters from my game on a whiteboard telling me to stop being a lazy prick.

It helps a bit.

I already solved it, but in pretty autistic ways.

image_speed is simple to understand, yeah.

My problem is that it causes frames to desync for some retarded reason.

Let me attempt to explain.

Autistic rant incoming.

Essentially, my game runs at 30fps.

I have a 6fps animation.

I set the game to play a random footstep sound on frames 2 and 5 (counting from 0)

And it works fine for a while, but it stops playing the sound after a while.

What I figured out is that image_speed causes the game to create frames in between the existing ones to fill it out to the room framerate.

So, my six frame animation has, for example, frame 0; 0,2; 0,4 and so on.

Making the sound play at certain intervals around frames 2 and 5 worked, but then it played twenty instances of the sound.

And, while I could make the game check whether the sound is playing, that might bring up problems when my character is running, since the sounds have a slight echo on them and might last too long and get cut off.

Similar thing with blinking.

I tried to make the character blink separately from the actual sprite, and, since the character bobs up and down when walking, I made the game check what frame the character is on and fix the position of the blinking sprite accordingly.

Same shit, to where it only reset every fifth frame of the game and, for the other four frames, lingered around.

Floating eyeballs.

Fucking spooky and retarded

Anyway, I made the footstep sounds go off on an alarm timer. Even if the game lags, it'll be tied to framerate that way.

As for the blinking, I had to incorporate it to the actual sprite.

That's what I get for trying to do shit fancy.

Thanks anyway, though.

6e95b4 No.25527


Well I can tell you one mistake that I made with image_speed some time ago. You need to remember that if you want something to happen at image_speed 0.4 you must not do an 'if image_speed == 0.4', you must use a greater or equal than sign. Because when you keep adding up the speed to the image speed it won't always equal to 0.4, sometimes it will be 0.42, or 0.48 and the IF won't return true.

So if you want to play a sound between 0.3 and 0.4 you must do an IF image speed is between 0.3 and 0.4, and make sure it will be played once, and the speed is not greater than 0.9, so it will fit well between that interval. I'm not sure if that was your problem but I figure that it might help.

6e95b4 No.25528


>and the speed is not greater than 0.09*

Just remember that an animation with 3 frames, starts from 0 to 2, and image_speed is basically a number that once it will reach an integer, it will move onto the next frame. If want something to happen at frame 2 (last one), it won't always return true because the image_speed might be at 2.1. What I would do is IF image_speed >= image_index - SpeedOfAnimation then...

6e95b4 No.25529


I tried to play the sounds on certain frames of the animation. The image_speed is constant.

It's just that image_speed, coupled with image_index caused problems, by creating frames in between frames.

The game would, for some retarded reason, desync and, since the frame is a decimal number, it would not do the action.

I never check for image_speed, since it's constant. It's that image_speed fucks with image_index, creating problems.

6e95b4 No.25532


Just so you know, I made a mistake in this post >>25528. Yeah, you are right, don't check for image speed.

I wanted to say, IF image_index >= startFrame && image_index < endFrame is how I would do something at a point, and the image_speed would be lower than startFrame and endFrame. If I wanted to check the end of an image I would do IF image_index >= spriteFrames - 1 - image_speed.

Maybe I am wrong with this, and I wrote some bullshit. Kinda weird to hear it desyncs, doesn't happen to me.

6e95b4 No.25534


That's what I did for a while, and that's how I figured out that the game was desyncing.

Problem is, since the sprite runs at 1/5 the framerate of the game, it'll create four or five instances of the sound at a time.

As I said, I could do a check for whether the sound is already playing, but, if the character was running, the sounds would probably cross over, and it would only play when one foot touched the ground, and not the other.

So instead I just did an alarm system, where the game, when the button is pressed, sets the alarm 11 frames ahead (start of the third frame) and then, the alarm, after playing the sound, will reset itself to 15 frames later, for frame 6 and so on.

6e95b4 No.25535


Ah, well either way I'm glad you figured out a way to do it, it's a headache though just for footstep sounds. I usually just did a random alarm that plays footsteps, if a sound is not already playing, because I thought too many footsteps would sound annoying. But if it works fine for you that's good, also I would try posting in the game maker forum for asking about the desync.

Your character is pretty cute, post some webm footage!

I'm stalled on finding an algorithm to test my pathing/raycasting/line of sight algorithm to see if the same tiles are generated if the start and end points are swapped.

Think a line tool in a pixel/raster drawing program.

You define a line with your tool and the program then decides which pixels to fill based on that path.

So if you start at 0,0 and go to 9,9 then the same pixels should be filled as if you went from 9,9 to 0,0.

For this I would like an algorithm that takes a 10x10 grid and goes through all possible line connections like that.

as in.

then 1,0,2,0 and so forth criss crossing all over the place until every permutation has been tried.

There must be an algorigthm out there for this but I don't know of it.

Do you? I'm not a good engineer nor am I very good at maths, I know, bad for game programming, but I gotta learn from someplace, right?

6e95b4 No.25659


right now I am doing 4 for loops

x1 < 10

y1 < 10

x2 < 10

y2 < 10

Which works out to be 10x10x10x10 permutations.

This feels right but my brain is seriously lacking in this department.

Why would that be a problem? All you need is four nested loops.

Hm. My instinct is that there's a better way, but I dunno what that is.

6e95b4 No.25688


Well mathematically you can say that obviously if it works for (0, 0) to (9, 9) it will also work for (1, 1) to (10, 10), unless there's a very glaring bug. So maybe there's no point in varying the origin (since that's implicitly tested since it computes both a->b and b->a for every pair of points).

>I'm stalled on finding an algorithm to test my pathing/raycasting/line of sight algorithm to see if the same tiles are generated if the start and end points are swapped.

Actually come to think of it, do you need this? Because the simple solution would be to just FORCE it to always go the same way by swapping start/end coordinates so they always go from left to right.

How the hell do I into music?

I've tried messing around with pics related, but haven't gotten anything good out of it.

I've read up a bit on musical theory too, and I sort of get chords now, but not much else.

6e95b4 No.25872


Same here. I feel like I don't understand what chord progressions are.

So you do an I-V-vi-IV chord in the key of A major, that's an A major chord, an E major, F minor, D major. But what do I do with these chords? What additional notes do I add to this base? Songs do not just take those 4 chords and play them over and over..

>But what do I do with these chords? What additional notes do I add to this base?

second pic shows that, I believe.

A major would be A+C#+E; F minor would be F+G#+C.

That would most likely be the lead. Which means you need harmony, bass and a beat.

The bass line is kinda simple, since it's often based on the lead itself. You could technically repeat the same note, for example, C3, and then, in the next part, step down by a few keys and make it A2 or something.

Or you can have notes change octaves instead of repeating the same one. So, C4 -> C3 -> C4 -> C3.

As for harmony, god fucking knows. I have not gotten that to work whatsoever.

As for what to do with the chords, I have no clue. You can do the same chord in a different key, you can do a different chord of the same key. I dunno if there's a way to know how progressions work well.

I've been mapping out a few songs and trying to figure out why they work, but no luck with that either.

I read up on musical theory and musical composition a bit, and I have this knowledge, but I feel like I am still unable to apply it properly. Or I'm still missing a lot of important steps.

embed related impresses me to this day. Motherfucker can do amazing music with three channels, whereas I can't do shit while not having any limits but my own stupidity.

Did a bit of sprite work, overhauled (simplified) my movement engine and made a very simple collision system.

The game checks whether there is a collision right in front of your character, and, if there is, the character stops moving.

Hey, it's progress, right?

Now I have a movement engine, a textbox engine AND a collision engine.

All I need now is everything else.

Oh, and a quick question.

Whenever moving up/down, if you then start moving left/right, those inputs take priority.

Whereas if I'm already moving left/right and then start moving up/down, it still keeps going left/right.

Would this be a serious problem? I doubt it, but I'm just wondering if anyone things it could be.

I most likely know why it happens, but GMS is autistic and fixing it would require a bunch of retarded checks in the step events, and I don't want to waste resources on that.

6e95b4 No.25882


Here's what you do.

If left is pressed, then subtract 1 from a variable--I'd call it "xVel" or "vx". If right is pressed, add 1 to whatever this variable is.

If up is pressed, subtract 1 from another variable--"yVel" or "vy". If down, then add 1 to yVel.

Then, move the character along the X axis by their walk speed times xVel, and along the Y axis by their walk speed times yVel. Boom, diagonals. And you didn't even have to learn trig!

Basically, you take the notes of the chord and play them on another octave for your melody. Sorta. I'm pretty new at this myself. This video should make things clear.

A few things:

First, I doubt I'll even do diagonals. Having a party of 7 characters as well as a few other important characters and making an RPG in general means that there's gonna be a fuckton of additional sprite work.

I know that Mother did it, but Mother also had an isometric view, which meant it was important. I don't know how important it would be in a FFIV style RPG.

Second, pic relater. I actually did that same code in a previous project, and, without adjusting the speed for diagonals, diagonal movement turns out to be significantly faster. It's not hard to fix, but it should be noted.

First time actually posting here even though I'm active on irc.

I've been working on a 3d game engine these past few weeks.

So far I've got a scene graph, forward renderer (with ambient, directional, point and spot lights), keyboard and mouse input, obj model parsing, VBO for geometry sharing, texture caching, timestep (64 tickrate with fps capped at 250 and interpolated transformations), translation, scaling, quaternion rotation and a FPS spectator-style camera.

Currently working on a 2d layer on top of 3d for interfaces (video related). The 2d stuff is rendered as 2 triangles per image in orthogonal projection with depth testing disabled (so that it always appears on top of the 3d scene). When I'm done with the 2d layer I'll work on fonts and text rendering.

What model of architecture did you use? How did you manage game objects?

6e95b4 No.25917


It is component based, each object is a GameObject class instance (including the root, which is at the top of the hierarchy) which can contain other GameObjects within itself.

Each object has methods like render() and tick() that are called when appropriate and a Transform object, which contains position, rotation and scale related stuff. Because of the hierarchy model all children of a game object inherit its transformation properties, so moving the parent also moves its children.

GameObject instances may also have components like MeshRenderer and SpriteRenderer that handle rendering to the 3d scene or 2d plane.

This is the first time I'm trying this model but far it's pretty versatile.

I definitely will. The implementation will depend on the game I decide to make. Like if it's simply tile based then I'll store and load the map in sectors and handle culling and collisions cleverly. I'll also implement proper frustum culling later for even better performance.

Meanwhile, my engine now supports angelcode format bitmap fonts with proper kerning!

Too late.

Rendering 3d tilemaps. 1 draw call, blazing fucking fast.

What I did was create 2 custom file formats - one for map data, and one for tileset data. Tileset contains references to models, map file positions them in a grid. The engine creates the whole map and stores it as a single model in VBO and IBO, so I can render it at 250fps in a single draw call.

Okay, well, in the past month I finally, "Just did it", and began work on the stellar body evolution system.

At this point it can generate and simulate asteroids, planets, moons, and stars.

Like usual, I'm concentrating on the mechanical aspects of the design before working on the procedural generation that will generate all the pretty graphics. I want to make sure the physics are sound before I add anything to the planets, so for now they're barren plains.

Most of the progress has been back-end stuff, optimizing, fixing, and replacing code.

I managed to shorten the class controlling the gravitation of the stellar bodies from 30-something lines down to 9.

Over all I shrunk the code by about 100 lines, which did wonders for the performance, and now I can simulate a large number of bodies at the same time.

N-body Problem be dammed.

I fixed the trails, so that now a small percentage of stars and large planets will display their ecliptic in the form of a trail, without killing the frame-rate.

I'm slowly improving the physics as well, slowly but steadily moving further from a classic Newtonian model of gravitation and more into the vastly more accurate model of special relativity.

This is immensely difficult to do, considering that no one is actually %100 sure how gravity does what it does to begin with, and It will probably require several updates after launch to get right. However, I am confident enough the the simulation is very accurate already.

The future is looking bright for this project.

Now, I also made some psychological progress, I created and uploaded a simple development teaser trailer to youtube, and updated my patreon page


Which is mostly just a mental thing to boost confidence since I've gotten 0 donations so far, not enough gay furry porn in this game, one would think.

Anyway, that's my progress this month.

Making a comfy space sim game, not having as much dificulty with programming as i thought i would have, the only difficulty i'm having is with the fact that english is not my first language, so it's going to have a few gramatical erros.

it's quite hard to explain the concept, you are in charge of a small scientific vessel on a randomly generated system, and you are given the task to analyse the planet data(atmosphere, surface, ore deposits) with your sensors and probes, and send a report in the end of a few turns, then you get funds to last longer, the data depends on the organization you work with, for example, if you're working of a tourism organization, you're going to have to analyze the planet's fauna and flora, if you're working for a mineration organization, you have to analyze the planet's ore deposits, the science part is going to be extremely in depth, i started the project yesterday.

Progress has been writing a save system for the game, breaking game world stuff into lines of text, one line of text for each variable, with things like what game object its on, what component, the Type name of the variable, and a string representation of the variables value, or the hash of what it points to if its a reference. That way its human readable and editable. Then to Load I go through the lines, and rebuild the scene reflectively. Last night I added event listeners, and the last thing I have to do is add Dictionaries.

Currently I'm working on how to save ViewControllers, since thats outside the realm of Model data that gets saved. I can know which windows should be opened on loading, because that data is saved in the model. But things like window position, or what text has been entered into the textboxes in the window, thats whats awkward right now.

It's going to be an action adventure game, somewhat like LBA (video related) but with juicier and more fun combat and movement. Right now I'm working on the engine for it.

You're right, SMAA is better, but I didn't find a good GLSL shader for it that I can just plug into my post processing pipeline and forget. I'll probably add it eventually but it's not a priority right now, I should really start working on the map editor and gameplay asap.

I've been working on pic related since January 2015. It's a 2D FPS engine implemented entirely from scratch. I haven't made use of any external libraries except for windowing (for which I've implemented xlib and SDL backends).

It's been a real educational experience and I've learned a lot about how graphics rendering and collision detection work on this project. I've finally gotten to the point where I can start implementing a real game on top of this engine, I just don't know what sort of game I want to make with it.

I also really want to work on something else now, but I won't because I can't bear to let the last 14 months go to waste.

6e95b4 No.26380


Is this software or hardware rendering?

6e95b4 No.26386


Software. The walls are done by doing one two-dimensional raycast for every column in the framebuffer. The raycast is used to obtain which wall is visible for a given column of pixels, and how far away the wall is at that part of the screen. From there, the perspective projection can be done to get how high that part of the wall is.

The floor and ceiling are done in a similar manner, but it's a bit more complicated, and I wrote it so long ago I don't entirely remember how it works.

Surprisingly enough, the collision detection was actually harder to implement than the rendering, although it is less computationally intense.

So a while ago I grabbed AppGameKit on steam for a whopping $free thanks to a game dev bundle, and I've been toying with it ever since.

After many, many "back to the drawing board"s, I've finally found a mechanic that's kinda fun, both to play and to program. Inspired by my job at an office, I decided to make a game around the most fun activity they ever gave me - Throwing old CDs and floppies into a shredder. Hey, we all have to start somewhere.

You control the claws with two buttons per claw - One for dropping the object, the other for calling the claw back.

Please ignore my color-blind spritework

The most obvious change is the lighting, stars and large gas giants now produce light, which makes everything look rather nice.

But besides that I also:

-Added SSAO and Bloom filters for openGL Pixel Shader 2.0

-Enabled VR mode(Dome/Spherical)

-Optimized several scripts

-Improved various controls and cameras

-Player can now switch between ships and bodies

-Player can now control several spaceships

-Added permanent light sources on ships

-Removed teapot orbiting random star

-First Demo Release

So I went and did something a little weird and uploaded an incredibly old and outdated version of the game, in fact, it was the first 'working' build of it, and it is in 2D. So I only did this to try and bring more attention to the full 3D project, and it seems to have worked but only just a little.

Anyway, you can play this heavily outdated 1 year old 2D version of starstuff here:


Be warned, it's exactly as basic as it sounds. But I still like it, you now?

Then, I uploaded an actual playable 3D Demo of the current version of starstuff. I'm currently on the 34th build, which is exciting. The game is progressing very well.

You can download the 3D demo of Starstuff | Stellar Evolution Simulator here:


There was another thing I did, which I put on youtube. It's a very short and very simple test footage video of the game's VR mode which I managed to get working using youtube's 360 degree video feature.


You can move the camera around while watching, if it doesn't work try to watch the video on the mobile youtube app.

If you just don't like that sort of thing though, I did make a more traditional trailer for the current version of the game, watch it here:


Lastly, I updated my http://patreon.com/scoriaGames page and blah, blah, blah, but every day I grow more and more convinced that patreon is pretty much a legend people speak of to make children hopeful that they will be able to follow their dreams.

Anyway, I'd appreciate any comment or feedback, support, or heck even a share on social media!

I was working on a twine game called Fritzlsim, inspired by Free Cities. I made good progress but eventually my shitty spaghetti code got out of hand and it was difficult to work with.

I've temporarily put Fritzlsim on hold in order to work on certain features I wanted by building another smaller game around them. This game is basically Battle Royale with only schoolgirls. Most features are now implemented, and I am now mainly filling in content. I've got NPC travel working kind of but I need a better way for them to intelligently move between grid coordinates. It's pretty random currently.

Combat works well and I just need to fill in the rest of the wound description/effect tables and add a shitload more weapons. Today I am working on fleshing out the girl descriptions to have more detail, and also list injuries.

Well LibGDX does make gamedev a lot easier on Java, especially if you only want to do 2D games.

That said, once I'm done with this project I'm migrating all of my code to C++ for the massive increase in control that gives. Java used to be my favorite language, and it's still good for learning stuff, but eventually everyone moves on from it if they can.

I've had some experience making normal objects from pictures, so I've recently started trying modeling a character but holy fuck it's hard, especially arms and hands.

I've been mostly following speed modeling videos to see the process people go trough, but I was asking myself if there's any better tutorials for it or someting to read to give me a better idea of what the fuck I'm doing

Working on several things split between Gamemaker and Construct 2.

Latter will be a small platformer with time-control and grappling mechanics, and the former is a school project where I'm supposed to put something simple in a balloon pop game. It's now a bullet hell.

Problem is, I'm running out of ideas for good (and easier) bullet patterns. I've just finished a spiral pattern, and there are various tracking bullets that fire at the player. (A black bullet that stays still for a half second then fires towards the player, and a gray bullet that fires towards the player and when it bounces it adjusts its velocity toward the player again once, and then the typical spiral mindfuck.)

I'm thinking of making a wave pattern and a beam attack pattern.

Also, how could one design a effective respawn system without lives, where the player is punted back where he left off? I'm using a health bar for the player, and one massive one for the boss. Right now, the player's health gets back up to full, and I'm working on deleting all the bullets from the arena, similar to a bomb.

Where is good documentation on the various functions of gamemaker? The only issue I have with coding is remembering all the shit I can bend to my will, and optimizing said will.


is pretty good so far though.

Trying to make a police station you can hack into and send police drones out to SWAT people, or submit tips on crimes you happen to see while snooping around. Or frame people for submitting false tips. I feel like I keep nibbling around the periphery of what the game wants to be, but I can't get myself to dive in and just like do it.

>Also, how could one design a effective respawn system without lives, where the player is punted back where he left off?

That sort of system is only really ever good on online FPS or in games without a linear level progression.

You should consider devising a sort of check-point system that temporarily quick-saves the player's state around every 5 minutes of game-play.

This way if you die after a certain point in the level you will respawn 1-5 minutes behind where you were.

Your right that you shouldn't have lives, as you aren't really making an arcade game so there is no point in having them, but making the player revive exactly or too near where they died promotes laziness in the player, it makes them practice your game less and keeps them from developing the skills to play your game without dying(for example, Bioshock, where death meant absolutely nothing.)


Here's a video that explains the common mistakes made by AAA devs on player respawn systems better than I ever could.

Working on a 2d topdown roguelike-esque puzzle solving / exploration game, written in C and Lua. Basic idea is to procedurally generate puzzles as part of the map generation, so I have a hierarchy of small composable puzzle elements (switches, keys, one-way doors, sensors, distances for time-based puzzles, etc.) and the generator will use a mix of graph rewriting and constraint solving to stitch them together and generate varied maps.

6e95b4 No.26806


Sure. I'm planning to make a top-down strategy/tower defense game with it for a start. I probably won't release the engine to the public because it's currently built for the specific gameplay I have in mind and is not useful as a universal engine (yet). Also I'd have to document it.....

I have just a few more things left to do before the rendering core is pretty much done (mainly skeletal animation), then I'll start working on a game prototype and will hopefully have some gameplay to show in a few weeks.

Gamemaker feels like you're making a game for a 16-bit console while the other engines are for modern day consoles/PCs.

I still love the some of the stuff it includes, such as the tile editor/sprite editor, but it always feels like you're doing something it wasn't meant for when it's something simple in Unity/Unreal.

That being said, GM8 > Studio simply for not crashing on startup at least on my computer

Did you mean a pure 2d RTS, or something like Ragnarok with 3d terrain and 2d sprites on it? If it's the latter, then the engine doesn't have that yet, but it wouldn't be hard to add.

It has a dedicated 2d layer for UI though. I just added 10,000 sprites to the pause menu and the fps became 45 (without the animated models), which I think is good, considering that each object is a separate entity in the hierarchy (if it was something like a particle system then I could optimize it to be faster).

Autodesk creates literal shittons of professionally-oriented books and videos. There are also a slew of third-party training vendors who've created libraries of videos. Also, the Blender Foundation has a number of sets if you're using Blender.

Good modeling from reference still depends on good modeling fundamentally. Also, learning to draw well is a huge step towards being able to model well, so I'd advise you to go in that direction first if you really want to make a career of it.

6e95b4 No.27668


There's all kinds of shit you can do.

For example, in the key of Cmaj, you can do a change to Dmaj since it's the dominant of Gmaj, which is dominant to Cmaj. There's also parallel keys, like Amin to Cmaj. Check out the Circle of Fifths and basically play chords that are next to each other, and chords that occupy the same "space" on the maj/min circles.

Also, a fifth up from the root is the dominant, a fifth down is the subdominant, which means fourth up is sub, fourth down is dom.

Go to your library and loan a fuckton of music books, then start checking them out. At least one is bound to make sense to you.

There's an amazing book called MUSIK by Bendt Joensen, but that's in Danish and probably doesn't apply at all to you.

Also, wow, this post is 4 months old. Fuck me, I guess.

6e95b4 No.27669


Also, inversions of chords go a long way for introducing variety to simple chords. Just transpose the root, or the root and the third, up an octave.

6e95b4 No.27696



Essentially, if you have a chord progression in A major, you can play any note in the key of A major (A, B, C#, D, E, F#, G#) over the progression and make it sound okay. For a guideline, you can play notes within the current chord on the on-beat or at the beginning or end of any phrase and any notes outside of the current chord on the off-beat or in the middle of the phrase (but obviously since music is a creative field, you don't have to adhere to this guideline strictly).

Typically you can split music into several components: rhythm, harmony, melody. Rhythm is typically carried out by percussion and bass. Harmony is also carried out by bass, which typically plays the root notes of the chords in the progression with something else playing chords in a higher octave. Melody is usually played in a higher octave than everything else.

>What about an astro mining colony sim game?

I actually like the colony sim part. I also though of it during the week. It look lazy enough to me. If I'm not wrong, all I have to do is to make a map that will fit the multiple item the player can use. If I make the goal vague enough and make sure that there's many stat for many purpose to avoid the game to look linear, I might be able to avoid the : "once you figured out how to beat it once, the game became boring."

I will mix the idea with basic RPG element in order to make it slightly more addictive. I will avoid the mining part of the idea though. In order to simplify collision detection I will avoid the minecraft-style mining. The astro-part is interesting. I will had some kind of space ship/space technology in it, no matter what.

I also got a friend IRL who's in to help me making a game. Anyway, I'll try to update this project once a month or at every 2 week, in the hope it doesn't fails. Considering i'm in college, my development is slow.

You probably already know this, but the walk cycle is horribly inconsistent. Each individual angle looks good on its own, but the walk motions are entirely different between the profile walk cycle and the 45° toward the camera cycle.

I have been working on pic related. This doesn't have a name. But if I use buzzwords it would be Minimalistic Command Promt Grand Strategy.

I am devving this game, because I wanted to get the feel of how C++ feels to dev in.

So far it feels like I took a step back into the previous century. At every step I make, I feel like I have to reinvent many development abstractions that were present from the get go in Python. And all the functions and abstractions like the vector thingie and the structs and overloading just feel like dirty hacks to give the language some modern tools - they don't feel like a part of C++ language.

Also, I can see, why one would want to make an engine in this language. It gives a pretty good control over the machine.

So, my verdict currently is that only an absolute retard or an autist would use C++ to develop a game. It however is good at optimizing the shit out of your graphical engine's lower level pipeline - but that would imply that one has a game first, that one can optimize.

wtf is this garbage?

6e95b4 No.28788

I'v been cultivating some vidya game ideas since school days (now I'm 30lvl). First, I wanted strategy with programmable game units: you program appearance of your units first with some sort of DSL (possibly visual) and then just throw them to the map (possibly pausing the game to correct the code). There is an old game called "Snake Battle", I liked it's principle very much in my childhood, but it had very limited snakes programmability. Then I wanted a replicatable units with some genome inheritance algoritms so that units can produce more units with gene memory included. And I thinked a lot about UI, because what I saw in usual games I played was not very sutisfactory. I liked WoW UI programmability, but I didn't played WoW at all. Also I am a fan of procedural generation, I like Nethack and Dwarf Fortress's generators very much, but I don't like their lurning curves. There is a flash game called "Flow", it has very simple intuitive gameplay and it has elements of rogue, for example. And recently I was interested in my own "soft" 3D-engine development, I wrote a minimal bindings for libdrm for Common Lisp, just to be able to work with virtual framebuffer like in old days (a really horrible kludge, but it worked maximum speed RAM gives), then I wrote a very simple rotation function with sequential axial rotation like in group theory and I was surprised how simple it is. It has only 3 summations, 2 multiplications and 3 array acces (precalculated sin and cos) for each axis. And I was surprised very much when I saw how one core of my AMD Athlon II X3 445 rotates 400k of dots around 2 axis without visible flaw. And that's how I like to do things - from scratch. But when I start to figure out how to make an interaction with libdrm less kludgy, guys from dri-devel told me that the only true way is to use OpenGL's shader language. I know that OpenGL is cool and compute shaders can do every thing I want, but I don't like this way. I want to work with framebuffer directly, building the code I want with language I like, without these levels of abstraction and cropped C-like language. So I stucked with my perfectionism. Now I'm too lazy to do something. Just dreaming about Lisp virtual machine on top of FPGA with native lisp programming language and programmable graphics adapter with direct access to video memory.

Why is this allowed?

6e95b4 No.28791

I'm making a flying game. Originally I was making it in Unity, but that engine is shit for physics or anything moving faster than walking pace, so I switched over to UE4. Physics and handling, and rotation especially, are a hell of a lot better so far.

Anyway, I just got camera handling to work mostly how I'd like (similar to War Thunder wherein you use the mouse to look around and the aircraft will slowly rotate toward your view angle, as opposed to being directly controlled by the mouse). It's not perfect, but it works well enough to where I can focus on other things.

Now the next major step is getting a decent, albeit basic, flight model. Any good resources out there, or should I just look through a physics textbook? I'm not looking to make it super realistic, but I'd like the ability to stall or have aircraft damage have an effect somewhere down the line in game development.
