>>324053828
Thank god for archives, saved an old post I made before.

The goal at the moment is to make a survival mod where the player will attempt to survive by ensuring he does not mess up, survives the coming war and it's battles. An ai will attack the player while he attempts to establish a working economy, allies and foes alike will try to establish themselves in the region too.

At the moment I have systems in place for

-Needs of the people (food, cloths and enjoyment)
-Farms (custom plants, growth time, harvest time and plant time)
-Storehouse (where buildings deliver and request materials, workers have a carry capacity - jobs get split up by it, a food version, a queue system)
-Refinery (where materials gets refined into other materials)
-Gatherers (gathers materials from nearby resources, gather location can be changed)
-Towers (Attacks nearby enemies, ammunition can be changed on a tower by tower basis)
-Basic Enemy AI (a basic AI that seeks out the player and attacks his units/buildings)

I've got some other systems in place but they're kinda minor. There are a lot of things I still wanna implement, a couple of examples are a weather system (rain that causes all growing plants not to die, too much and the crops die. Snow that changes the way you play both with the economy but also how you wage war), Eco system for all living things (so what you do can have an affect on other things, cutting down to much of the forest might scare away the deer)

There's not much you can do more without learning how to code. You can give Unity a try and see if their way of easing you into learning how to code in parallel with the rest of the system can work for you.
Most people who think they have a "simplistic way of thinking" never really tried. The basics of programming are not like super advanced maths: everyone can learn how to do it with a bit of effort.

Expert coder here. I could easily whip up a playable demo of any kind of game in a matter of days, but my big problem is that I just don't have any good ideas for what kind of game to make. If only I could find some kind of collaborator to give me specific direction of what kind of characters and backstory they would like to see. I'd love the chance to be able to listen to detailed (or even vague) descriptions of theme, lore and gameplay. I'd absolutely do my best to stay true to whatever vision my collaborator had in terms of overall tone and impression while I do all the system design, coding, and testing. Really all they'd have to do was playtest the demo it to see if my work was faithful enough to their vision, or if I should go back and refine it further. Maybe this thread will help me with my idea problem.

>>324059670
A game in the style of Commandos, but you have a tool that can move the entire level through time, and change everything, even all the actors, accordingly. As a result the players would have to switch time periods to better suit the situation.
A stupid example just to get the idea across, if you're in a modern time with no ranged weapons in an open area and you're spotted, you switch to prehistoric times so the enemy's ranged weapons are now thrown rocks with very little range.

I know I will never make this because I'm already busy doing another retardedly overambitious project and besides this game would be a complete bitch to balance, so if you or anyone else wants to steal this, feel free.

Actually, I have a spritesheet ready and tried to animate it in Unity, but for the life of me I can't figure it out. Did the whole splicing thing, but it's the animator panel that's confusing the hell out of me.

>>324061563
Again, I'm totally new and don't really know where to start, that's why I was hoping anyone would know of any really easy basic ones to follow. I've actually tried some in the past but I find a lot are very difficult to follow, messy or are just a bit too advanced for me, plus most tutorials seem to be for 3D, not 2D.
The one the other anon posted is good and I'm reading them right now, that and I started watching an introduction to C# on youtube so I kind of understand what some code will do but again it's very minimal.

I'd really like to learn how to get a sprite to walk with animations (I figured out how to get a static sprite to move around already but the animation thing is confusing the hell out of me), how to make text pop up when you interact with an object, and change rooms. I'd love to make more complicated things but I figure they're a good place to start?
>>
>>324062440
I know nothing about animations.
To load a new room you need to switch scene with SceneManager.LoadScene
http://docs.unity3d.com/ScriptReference/SceneManagement.SceneManager.LoadScene.html
To make text popup you need to instantiate a UI.Text. The problem is that since you have no programming experience, telling you things like this does nothing, because you have no notion of what Instantiate is, how to calculate the Vector3 for its position, and so on.
Getting started is a very slow process.

youtubed "unity tutorials", literally second result, get the corresponding playlist
https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLZ1b66Z1KFKik2g8D4wrmYj4yein4rCk8
there are a million series like this one
don't just try to find the 10 seconds you want to do a single thing, watch a series of tutorials and take notes and do the things along while you're watching
watch "introduction to..." and "for beginners" stuff and everything should be explained in order. you can't just jump in wherever and expect to understand what they're saying. sometimes you need just a little theory/explanations so you can move on. if one series is really bad, find another. there's no way you can't find what you're looking for, there is way however that what's happening is that you're not being patient.

(Not the same anon.) For animations, this is the tutorial series that I used:

>>324063276
Thanks for the advice, and the link. What you're saying is actually true, but I guess the reason for me doing that is that I find 2D tutorials difficult to find... is there benefit to me watching 3D tutorials, can I learn that and apply that knowledge to 2D?
I wandered around and looked at a lot of tutorials before I started watching this one https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=12Ste_E1Q7g and I feel it's well explained and I'm understanding what commands mean/do. I got up as far as Arrays and I started having trouble but I'll keep watching until I get it.

You're right, I am being impatient. I guess I'm just excited and want to make stuff right away, but of course that's not really possible. What do you guys think is a reasonable timeframe to learn how to do all of the things I outlined in my post before? Would 3 months of learning C# be reasonable?

2 only gives you so many events with the free version afaik. It might be enough, but I didn't feel like taking chances. My only other option was Unity, which I'll look into in the future.

They're not though. You can open it in paint and check for yourself.

Fair enough. I pirated it myself so I could learn how stuff worked.

I'm not that great at it but if you have any Construct questions I'd be happy to try and answer.

>>324064717

I'm sure I'll have many, but I've been trying to stick to reading tutorials for help and just monkeying with the system as best as I can.

>>
>>324064104
>is there benefit to me watching 3D tutorials, can I learn that and apply that knowledge to 2D?
yes, anything that's not related to positions in space still works of course
Unity actually used to not have any explicitely 2D stuff, it does now though (since 5, so do search for Unity 5 tuts)
>I got up as far as Arrays and I started having trouble
depends what you mean by "trouble", if it's "losing concentration after a day starting from scratch", it's fine, if it's "spent several days on arrays", get it a little together
arrays, like other things, are a basic component of programming, you'll see it all the time, it's something you can't skip
I can't answer you as to a timeframe, I've given up all that stuff some time ago, that was just general advice. I'll just say don't go and start thinking "I need to get a game out within 6 months because my rent depends on it", that's not gonna work

if you really, really just want fast results you could go with Game Maker, I'm not sure how much more simple than Unity it is though, maybe not that much

If you try to do some learning daily it shouldn't take you take long to start building something. Then as you continue learning you can keep building on top of that.
Chances are in the end you'll end up scrapping everything and restarting from scratch because you'll then understand how things work much better, but that's the way it goes. That second time you'll be much faster at it.
>>324064796
Maybe those are eight pixels
>>
>>324064796

Hmm, good point. I guess my biggest problem is the sprites are two small if I'm making a 1:1 8-bit styled game, so I just multiplied everything by 3. I wonder if I can fix that.
>>
>>324065182

I assume there's a way in Construct to make a room that's 1:1 size but the window the player views the game in is 2/3x zoomed in. That way you could keep the pixels and movement consistent and also keep the upscaled resolution of the game.
>>
>>324065182
It really isn't a problem, it just might trigger a few peoples' autism.
If you want to eliminate it though, the solution is the have everything at native res in the agme and then have the game window display at 3x.
I don't really know if that's possible in construct though
>>
>>324065057
Well, it's a vertical shooter. Unless you have a special idea there's not much where you can take it.
You could try to see how crazy you can make it become while keeping a perfect performance.
>>
>>324065182
You could always make the screen size 256x240 and then have the game scale up to your window size.
>>
>>324065480

>>324065451
I'm planning on adding a bit of randomization, nothing too excessive, sort of along the lines of Strikers 1945 stages and then maybe doing Nuclear Throne upgrades and BoI-style randomly chosen bosses.

But I probably just won't go anywhere with it and it'll be another iteration of learning to code basic engines and learning from mistakes
>>
>>324065057

Allow the player to hijack enemy ships and control them. Different ships have their own HP and strength values. If the player's current ship is gunned down their power meter depletes, and they need to find a new one to control before it hits 0.

Made the missile trails framerate-independent so they look way less shit. Now working on making the high level AIs less inclined to spin in circles, as well as adding a way for the player to control their wingman; right now, wingmen target whatever plane their leader targets, but I'd like to make it so they can act more defensively as well, targeting any planes that target their leader. Hopefully something like that would let the player use their wingman to force the enemy AIs into less predictable movements

Hotline miami was a great game. That trailer was a hot mess.
>>
Engine: Unity

Setting: Fantasy 90's cyberpunk wizards battle eachother in a large-ish map.

Gameplay: Third person style, WASD controls.
Press "Space" to charge-up your mana (slowly decreases if not used).
While charging up, your mana increases up to level 5. While charging up, you can press any other key to input a "Magical Rune". You can use as many Runes as your mana level. Release Space to cast a spell.
Ex. press space, charge up to lv 2, press Q (fire rune) and W (movement rune), release space to cast "Fireball" - mana decreases if a spell is succesfully cast.
This offers around 400 spell combinations.
Spells get radically more powerful as complexity increases - possibility of "Epic" spells done with a long string of letters, requires magical tome found in the map?

Right now most of the game systems are in a working state, I require cool assets and actually coding the 400 spells.
Should I continue working on this, /v/?

Think about this for your level design, those hallways are very narrow. If you check Hotline Miami every single room you go into you can maneuver around a bit. As is those hallways are death traps, or at least can inhibit the flow of the game.

Question for your UE4 fucks, been fucking around with UE4 and I'm more practiced with the character modeling aspect with Maya than the actual software of making it all click, but hey, gotta start somewhere. Anyway, I imported the character I made as an .fbx file and it appears in UE4 as a static mesh when I drag it into the game world. It works fine standing there doing the default arms out pose..so..what exactly are the steps needed to make it an actual NPC with movement as opposed to just a stiff box?

That is, not a player character itself, but at least so it stands there and just idles as opposed to just static hang there?

Anon, i got an idea of a game, if any devbro is interested to hear it, you can add me on steam

Basically it involves a top down hotel management gameplay, youre a hotel manager in the worst shithole crime infested place of X country. Involves shooting and money management, also maybe a plot about the main character that adds aspects to the gameplay

I can go more in depth if anyone wants to hear more, sorry for being a first timer ideas guy

>>324071607
That's gay. Hopefully she gets lots of porn, that's the whole point of anthro characters anyway

That's the problem though, I've been looking for a tutorial and all I seem to find are tutorials about how to make a new player character from the existing skeleton mesh that comes with the default map, or how to import static objects and characters. No one seems to go through the steps on how to tweak a character from static pose to idle

No i'm not. But thanks for asking. No, I sent an email + the game to ask about their opinion, and wether or not they felt like I stole their idea. They (or he/she) told me that they didn't feel like my intentions were to steal their ideas in any way. I did the same thing with the music that we use.

>You used the same style of music?

I'm not using the same style of music. Note, the creators of Hotline Miami had composers make tunes for the game, instead of reaching out for tunes that already existed. I mostly just intended to use Lorn's music but the (ex) co-creator felt, that using hardstyle was the way to go. I disagree.

I've been very busy with developing my latest version, which doesn't have any music in it at all. It isn't singleplayer either.

Make beat em up combat / hack and slash combat.

Play Dungeons And Dragons beatemup series by Capcom for good examples.

Also play a top down game called Beyond Oasis by Sega on the genesis.

Its not 2D plane, but the combat is very punchy and satisfying for a RPG/Adventure game.

Alright.
1) I don't see how you can say this isn't like HM. It totally is. Not that it's a bad thing.
2) I didn't see much point in having to aim and sprint: to me it didn't seem that there was any advantage to not holding them down the entire time
3) the view is too zoomed in for my tastes. It meshed well with the speed anyway, but I'd have liked a bit more awareness
4) the AI seemed a bit sleepy, sometimes they had bullets flying around them and still didn't react
5) you should rework some tiles in areas like pic related because walls can be very hard to spot
6) game froze in the level after pic related

All around the controls felt good. The camera sway didn't bother me, but it didn't in HM either.

This is bait but there's some truth to it. Even if you have enough dedication/work ethic to actually learn all the skills necessary to make a game, once you get to that point you start to realize a lot of the ideas you used to have aren't technically feasible, or are ill-defined, or just flat-out not fun. When you can look at something and instantly see all the little flaws and hangups it's incredibly hard to motivate yourself to finish, let alone start, anything.

I see you upscalled the sprite since last time. and your color choices are certainly better this time but there's still some colors that need better contrast. Your line work also needs improvements.

If you pop up again in another thread and post your wokr, I'll be glad to help.

>>324075780

I'm going to respond the same way you did, for social reasons.

1) I understand how you formed that opinion. I implore you to reconsider. By playing an outdated version, you've only scratched the surface of what the game is really about.

2) Aiming and sprinting is something that I concidered to be a benefit to the 'fast paced gameplay' I was aiming for.

3) The final (online) version will be slightly zoomed out for shooting etc, but a lot more zoomed out when it comes to driving around town.

4) The AI is retarded. But that's my opinion. The one that wrote the A.I. stated that it's a difficult process. I expect people to be understanding this.

5) I'll take that tip. I will rework the tiles and walls.

6) I have the exact same bug. I hate it. Even more because I know what cames after that level.

Thank you for the kind feedback and critisism.

It's legally risky. What you need to probably do is go for grounds of parody, but you'll have to make significant visual changes in order to avoid nasty legalities.

No that isn't going to cut it, i'm afraid.

You could always just ask these companies for their opinion on the subject. Ask if you could use a 'likeness' of their characters and think of a reason to do so, however, make it a good one.

Im trying to learn making games on gamemaker right now

I think GMS is just way too fucking confusing for me right now, i feel like im drooling at the screen like a retard when I try to learn programming. I still can't even figure out to do anything beyond moving my character left and right, and I am not even sure if I am doing it the right way for my game.


Is it better to just learn Drag and Drop in gamemaker first or learn construct 2 if you are brand new at making games and programming is just too frustrating. I want to have at least a bit of fun making games, but I seriously can't get over the programming hurdle, I feel like a loser retard and want to give up.

Hi again! I still have that image saved, and thanks once again!

I'm expecting to have quite a few revisions before it's all done and finalized, so I'm sure you'll see me around again at some point! I'm quite happy with the overall design of the guy now, but I'll have a search for more colouring tuts in the mean time!

Cheers!

I would just use really small similarities. Use completely different names. Maybe then you could use the 'coincidence' statement.

I use Pyxel Edit. It's not bad, though it has bugs and the dev has gone a bit AWOL.

Your work has an anime feel to it (which is not necessarily a bad thing, but it tends to end up being generic), probably due to electric guitars and violins (I might be wrong here). And it also has a fast battle pace.

Just put an asset on the unity store. It generated enum c# classes for you from files within a folder using their filenames, or from an SQLite database file. Takes a config file that lets you define what you want to do and where to put stuff.

Currently working on an RPG. Don't have any pics or builds saved to this computer though.

Honestly, I'm a bit frightened. It's low res with sorta bad art (I'm much better at pencil than pixel), a silly tone that's self aware (near the end of the game you blow up the galaxy's "Meme Database") and it has what I guess could be considered deconstruction aimed at traditional RPG mechanics.

It sounds like it's ripping off Undertale, but I started development in August of 2015. I'm not going to act like Undertale didn't have any influences, it most certainly did (specifically the switch from RPG maker to Gamemaker) but it's a sort of goofy, modernized version of the golden age of CRPGs, 1985-1990. It doesn't have any skill based mechanics like Undertale's bullet hell combat. It's "press action key to roll dice" and occasionally using items until the enemies are all dead. There's plans for some really hard mentally taxing optional puzzles that require an understanding of gas laws and calculus, but that's basically the extent of the difficulty. It's a JRPG, you don't roll for stats and there are no builds to do.

This is because I was really worried about releasing an extremely number heavy game in today's day and age because then nobody but the extremely tiny niche of people who like 1980s CRPGs would play it (so basically 20 people from RPGCodex and maybe 2 or 3 from /tg/ or /vr/). That's not to say I'm doing it entirely for the money, but if I can just make $10k in sales that's enough to support myself long enough to make another, better game.

I'm just so terrified by simplifying it, I'll have pushed away the original audience and the new audience will be ignorant enough to not see past the similarities it shares with Undertale, essentially leaving it in a vacuum of obscurity and negative opinions.

I've gotten positive responses from here on /v/ and /agdg/ before, but I just don't know anons. I just don't want to go back to washing dishes.

Those textures seem a bit too glossy, but there's not much that can be told from such a small picture. Your lights are also all over the place and create weird chromatic aberration-like effects.
If you're trying to showcase texturework it's best to stick to neutral lights.
The diffuses themselves seem fine, but again, tiny picture.

It's for referencing resources and database info.
I use it for controlling what files go out to classes as well as controlling strings that I might change. Basically I give a string a name "Level1SpeechText_NPC5_dialog4" and then I give it a value. The enum has that long name, then I load the actual value into memory and put it in a dictionary by that enum.

When I want it, they just use the enum and I can change it all I want in my database and have it reflected in the game.

Better example is something like "Yes"/"No"/"Confirm" which are used all over the place.
This also makes it super easy to stick a translation in because all you do is replace the dictionary's backing values and boom, the entire game is translated.

Where do you draw the line on too many usable powers? I'm trying to make a Mega-Man-X-like game with a wide range of usable weapons with melee/range/utility buttons and interchangable elements (close to what MMZ had going on), but having every boss supply a ranged and a melee attack and maybe a utility instead of one or the other, on top of an element might be confusing.

You mean a boss dropping three power-ups at once? Or a single power up that can be used from a range, does a different melee attack when you hit a distance threshold, and there are elements in the levels in which react to that attack?

As in, you beat the ice boss, you get the sword weapon they used for your melee slot, a three-way frontal projectile for the ranged slot, and an ice element. When you got to the boss that was weak to ice, you could change the element of your basic gun to ice if you prefer that weapon instead, and swap in a whip for melee if the sword wasn't to your liking.

a ScriptableObject that is serialized in an asset is basically just a YAML file. it's pretty straightforward and lightweight. all unity project settings are ScriptableObject assets actually. it's a hundred times easier to handle and causes less overhead than fucking 50 years old SQL

right lads

imma start worked based off this tutorial most likely:

bases off the way the platformer looks/controls, what other games are similar to it (e.g. which ones can i rip off :^)), or what kind of game could you imagine it be like (potential mechanics, game flow, etc.)

thanks.

for me, it looks like it has that slightly float-y feel, so i might make something that's based off doing moves in mid air, like air-dashes etc. instead of your typical "pixel"/retro plat former. also feel like it would work hand in hand with a sword or some shit.

also im tired as fuck and cant come up with any ideas for a story/theme. i use robots as a crutch way too much in my past games 'cause it's too ez to use. if anyone can think of any other possible ideas (need story peeps here) then I'll gladly take any ideas, or a way to make muh robots more interesting.

Sounds a little interesting, but it strays away from the simple pick a shot type and roll with it, but now it is pick a shot type and an element. The problem with this could be that in Megaman you got certain weapons due to how effective they were on bosses due to how bosses behaved and how the weapon worked. You got powers that just shot straight into the air but were very effective against the boss not only in damage but they grooved with the bosses movement pattern as well.

With such a mechanic of switching out weapons and their elements that go with that weapon you will have the player possibly needing to go to two levels to make the ideal shot type to defeat a certain boss. You would have beaten 1/4th of the selectable levels by the time you can have a truly effective weapon against a boss.

In the original Megaman games it was instant. You beat one level, you had one power that you could now effectively use on one of the other bosses, you just had to figure out what the best route would be.

That is my opinion on it. I like that the powers that the boss drops is more than just a single skill but can have two skills attached to it.

>>324087062
When I first read it I thought you meant each weapon would have a separate melee, range, and utility function.
But yeah, that would be cool, though I could see it getting a little overwhelming. Vile Mode in Maverick Hunter had a similar 'three weapon per boss' thing, but you had to choose a setup at the mission start and stick with it.
If you're looking for ways to streamline it, I have a couple ideas for you. There's the multi-function weapon thing, or you could have each element as an item (like ice shard, hot ember, tesla coil, etc,) that give you a different weapon/effect based on what slot it's equipped in. And from there you could either let items be equipped to multiple slots (like ice shard as melee and element, with ember as ranged and utility) or restricted to one slot each so the player has to weigh their options.

Sure, if you decide to load from it

The script generates files from it. Not at run time, that's retarded.
The way I do it is generate plaintext and just load that into memory since I also let the user override some things with a plaintext file if they'd like to, so the functionality is already there

It takes all of 15 milliseconds to do. So much downtime, so many frames lost, and a whole 1 MB of ram taken up. Game is basically dead in the water because of it.

Pixels that can move diagonally. Pic related. I think they're fine and like 100% of everything looks worse without them, but that's just my opinion; if you can avoid rotating things altogether though, that's even better, as you can maintain the illusion that pixelshit games make without making sprites that look like jumbled garbage.
Mixels though, as it pixels overlaying each other creating weird non-pixely shapes, mixels are actually shit and can be easily avoided, and should.
