What happened to all you cool guys who were making games?

What happened to game design general or something?

I started learning programming and I wanted to use Javascript and create something! God damn it why did you all leave!?

Some quit, some still work on it, but don't post every single update because this place can be a time sucker if you're not careful.

Urgh.

Making games is hard. Rather just play em

did that flutterrape game ever get finished?

You might as well give up

Javascript is a web based language, it's not used for software development.

Bah, I'm actually tring to replace that horrid Non-Canon Canterlot Castle map on the GMod Workshop. Sad part is I'll have to get Texture Designers, custom Mappers, etc. for such a thing to occour, and man sources to confirm the Castle Design instead of.... What we have on workshop. http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=386891553
Personally want to have some others who are experienced in Source/Hammer help me out, but I can already bet there's almost nobody here who gives a shit about maps.

>>25996679
Rule n°1 of dev : stuff only matter if you actually finish your project someday.

If a beginner seriously want to create a game, he will have to use a game engine. Right now, it mean either Unreal (and C++), or Unity (and C#).

I strongly recommend Unity.

Answer's in your pic OP, no one can make money from it unless they're soulless corporations charging stupid amounts of money to progress any faster than "might finish the first quest in about 3 years"
>>
>>25996969
Haven't you heard? Javascript isn't just for the web anymore! You should write all your server code in node.js - it's what the cool kids are doing! Also, it's faster than C because it uses an event loop! WEBSCALE!

But its data transfer rate in an hour is more than three weeks of Source Online Engine play.
I rigged up around 100 Gigs in a fucking week on JS.
Source still has under 10 in a week.

This.

There was a guy here asking for music suggestions for an interesting game he was almost done with where you bring Flutterbutter to orgasm in her sleep. Did that ever get finished?
>>
>>25997123
What the hell are you talking about? Javascript is a language, not a game engine. Languages don't have a "data transfer rate", programs do.

Minecraft is build in JS.
Minecraft is a game.
Minecraft sucks balls, but still runs JS.

What happened to Equestria Divided?

>Minecraft is build in JS.
Java and Javascript are not at all the same thing. Literally the only connection is the name, which Javascript used only because Java was popular at the time.

And regardless, languages don't have any kind of inherent bandwidth usage. They just provide a way to access the network, the bandwidth consumption depends entirely on what the program decides to do with that network access functionality. If Minecraft eats up lots of bandwidth, that's because Minecraft's network protocol is badly designed.

Thank you for telling me. I mainly try to learn Source Engine, since the mapping can be quite fun. The Physics need a bit of reworking, but I feel it can be easily achieved with a few variable changes.
And yes, I'm the >>25997000 faggot.

> Not knowing the difference between Java and JavaScript.

Minecraft itself is built in Java. It only use JavaScript for user-created stuff (like modding).

Like I said in >>25997276 , I only work in Source.
I don't fuck with Java or JS.

OP, I actually have a half-written game in Javascript that I've been too busy lately to finish. Basically you have two teams of 1-3 players that fight. You get different abilities depending on whether you pick earth/unicorn/pegasus.

I'll try to put up what I have so far so you can check it out and see if you're interested.

"Harmony Baking"? What's it about?
>>
>>25997936
Harmony is a collection of minigames based off the Mane 6. Baking is one of Pinkie's. You have to get ingredients into the bowl in the right order, mix it, then bake.
