Make a persistent list, and each enemy can correspond to a spot on the list. Then each spot can contain a condition like alive or dead. Then when you reload, you can destroy all the dead ones (or put dead bodies or ghosts or something).

Find the slope, then shift the graph according to one of the points.
You have the points (0,3) and (10,0), so you know the slope will be -10/3.
-10/3 * 0 is 0, so you need to add 3 to make it match that point.
So your equation is -(10/3)*x+3

Eh, like I said, it was on and off, with the vast majority of it off. I started during summer of last year, then got a job, moved, and finally settled in before restarting. Its probably all of less than a handful of actual coding sessions right now, but the majority of it was enginedev shit, making sure things are in order to be expandable. I haven't even touched the idea of gameplay yet.

Not them, but bullet sponge enemies can be fun if the weapon you're using is satisfying to fire, and the hits are rewarding, and you're just as spongy. Think Borderlands 2 when firing that legendary hyperion smg (I think it was called the 'B!tch', and there were some variations to it too) at one of the tougher enemies. It's wildly inaccurate the first 2 or 3 shots, but then after that you see the weapon rapidly increase it's efficiency to pinpoint accuracy. It would be wasted (and unsatisfying) if the enemies only went down in 1 or 2 shots. Plus I liked that tapping sound it makes whenever it fires. Then you got the numbers popping out on hit, and it's just an overall fun weapon.

Where they fucked up is when they started giving enemies regenerating health and damage resistance in the harder difficulties, then it just feels like you're wasting ammo and should be using a better weapon.

If you can make it fun, do it. I think that's what matters.

>muh special snowflake
Why is it always the special snowflakes that say this?

So you're saying games should be 100% unique? Right, like music should be 100% unique too, right? Or television? Or books?

The difference is that one set of mechanics is fun, and the other is not. I'd rather someone copy a fun mechanic than a shitty one. You're telling me you'd rather play any of the Flappy bird clones over something like Freedom Planet? There's no difference there? Or maybe it's just because you prefer shitty games. Nothing wrong with that, more power to you.

>>127240013
It's too watered down. I never looked at the manual but I could perform all these silly combos that pissed my friends off, and all I did was mash buttons. literally you can do an air combo as long as you change the direction you hit and go a step up higher in how heavy the attack is. I don't even play fighting games either, so it was more hilarious because my friends were the street fighter enthusiasts and they had more time practicing mvc3 before I even started playing.

>>127241263
I kind of agree, but I think that's only because the games that are played by speedrunners are games that are either very simple or manageable (ex: you can recover from errors in judging physics)

I don't think it's impossible for a video game to become more than a game of memory in the long term, given enough complexity
The problem is, the more complex it is, the less interesting it becomes for the player

So I've run into a small issue, don't know how to solve it. I have X assets (in this case, meshes) in a folder which I want to at runtime assign to various spots in a blueprint. I can't figure out how to "get" these things from the content browser. Any ideas?

In other words:
Blueprint has 7 empty Static Mesh components. When the game starts, I want the blueprint to search in a specific folder for meshes, and then pick one out of them to use. How do I get it to search for meshes in a folder?

Create an array of the static mesh actors and manually assign the meshes. It's inefficient to search for files at runtime if you can just reference them.
>>
>>127244665
The thing is, I want to have an arbitrary amount of files in that folder, so manually assigning them would only work if I have X and no more than X files (and then add any additional ones every time I add more to the folder).

If I can't find a solution, though, will use that method.

I had an idea to make a game that was some kind of city manager/builder but the units would be other player characters who would receive updates on tasks from someone who would be randomly selected or voted to be the manager/overseer/mayor whatever.

one player manager per six or so player 'workers' to each 'faction or team, and two or three of those factions per map. so you could also have players sent to antagonize other teams or something it was gonna be either medieval castles, or fantasy (3.5 dnd-esque), or like backyard kids cardboard imagination rule the playground or w/e.

Not that guy, but that's basically the same as saying "Programming isn't hard, just write the function you want."

Blueprint is pretty simplistic, but you really have to know what you're doing with it in order to make anything worthwhile. You also need to know how to subsidize your blueprints with C++ code. If you do everything in blueprints it'll get super messy.

In my experience, blueprints are best used for simple scripts and materials since it lets you visualize what you're actually doing to the material in real time. C++ should be used for anything with mechanical depth. The problem is, you end up with people like that guy who think they can do everything in blueprints and you end up with an inefficient mess like >>127249730 is saying.

its hard to put to words, these feelings

what about TES Arena
what about King of the Dragon Pass
what about any other ancient game

why not just have a jam dedicated to RPG's

All I want to do is to be able to place lights and 2D bilboards with normal maps, in 3d space. Why is there no good easy to use engine that has this?

A very easy jumping off point for OpenGL is https://open.gl/, but you'll probably want to fill it in with the OpenGL red book as it isn't very indepth.

BUT I don't think your complaint about VS is very valid, you can edit the files in any editor you want. You only need VS to build and I think there might even be a command line tool included for doing that, or you can write batch scripts to compile and link using the VS toolchain.

How do you make an instantaneous transition at all points in a previous animation?

I don't want the jump animation to transition at the point in the image, I want it to go immediately at any point, cancelling out the previous animation so it doesn't finish.

my Idle -> Jump works fine because Idle is a shorter animation, but Walk -> Jump is being a bitch.

Sure, that makes it instantaneous. But only at that specific point in the walking animation.

So like, I have to progress through my walking animation in order to transition. In this case, my walking animation will only go into my Jumping animation at: "Frame 40."

I want it possible to go into my jumping animation at Frames 0-60 of walking.

That's actually the reverse effect
Instead you draw a shadow over the whole screen and then you use subtractive blendmode to light specific areas up. Think of it as drawing shadows instead of casting light

unless you're just talking about the light balls conjoining in the middle there, that's a metaball effect:

Because a lot of games don't rely on language for actual gameplay. If they're unable to understand language they still might be able to play a game.

My nephew is a few years old, he can't really read but he's still able to press the "play" or "start" button on many games. And he's able to click the "next" or "continue" button at the end of levels. He just does it based on trial and error, not the actual words.
>>
>>127263332

>that scene in Link's Awakening

That was one the hypest moments of any Zelda game, the triumphant tune that plays when you pick up the sword, the transition to the classic Zelda overworld theme with that fanfare before spin attacking, it's amazing how just adding a few touches like that really conveyed "the adventure begins now"

Love that game.

>be a BR

>because it relies on language, I can't play it at all because my english is poor
an easy example without having to resort to "IF YOU DONT KNOW ENGLISH YOU ARE RETARDED"

something like cowadoody or collapse, you can look up a translation of the manual/menus and sorta wing it if your language skills are poor but still have fun with the core gameplay because the core gameplay is not language based. Even in RPGs or VNs, they can be localized easily, and the core gameplay relies on the concepts spoken between characters and not the actual specific language.

With voice recognition, it absolutely relies on a specific set of words (and can be prohibitive to localize to recognize different words), and people who even just have lisps or low-quality mics will be at a distinct disadvantage for metagame reasons, because they'll have a harder time getting the game to read their inputs.

I took "cognitively unable to understand language" to mean that they aren't smart enough to even speak or understand speech, like a really low functioning disabled person or a baby.

Shouldn't this start on the 1st and end on the actual anniversary? It justs seems weird to start it on the anniversary and isn't it going to overlap with Demo Day 7 this way?

that's still fair. toys are falling way to simple tablet games for toddlers, and what if some old guy who had a stroke a while back wants to play some gat dang vidya gaems

>decide to skip on relearning shit and just go straight to making stuff
>start trying to make a very simple console roguelike
>doing simple stuff in c++ is super complicated and I keep having to google shit

okay gimme a book or something that teaches c++ to the point for people already experienced in other languages and programming

I revisit Link's Awakening every so often too, it's my favorite Zelda game, just everything about it was just fucking quality. Some of the best items too, the boomerang is a goddamn beast.

Then it pisses me off when I recall that shitty indie game that pretty much copies the art style of Link's Awakening and turns the game into a shit roguelike with edgy elements, Lenna's Inception.

You need a radial gradient texture, something like pic related, but from white to fully transparent.
I don't know if Gamemaker supports drawing to textures, but you need a texture just for the light sources. This texture will be black and i'll call it "light texture". You render the gradient textures on top of this "light texture where the light sources are.
Imagine the scene has only one light source in the middle of the screen. The "light texture" will be fully black, but with a white gradient circle on the middle.
If you have two light sources, your "light texture" will be black but with two of these white gradient circles. If both of these lights overlap, the gradients overlap too.
You already have your base lighting texture, but you don't want the light to fade gradually. You want the light to fully stop, judging by the pic you posted.
For this, you define a treshold. 0.5 will do.
In this "light texture", white pixels have a value of 1.0 and black pixels have a value of 0.0. You compare the value of the pixel to the treshold you defined earlier. If it's greater (brigher) than the treshold, you render it fully white. If it's lesser (darker) than the treshold, you render it fully black. This will make your lights be either white or black, with no gradual fading.
If two gradients were partially overlapping before comparing to the treshold, the final result will be like your pic, where each circle streches to merge with the other.
You still want to apply this effect to the scene though, you don't want to have just a black and white screen.
You multiply this "light texture" with the common texture where you have drawn your scene normally. White pixels are 1.0 and black pixels are 0.0, so when multiplying anything by the black (dark) pixels, it will stay black, but multiplying with the white (light) pixels, it will show the scene.

This might be complicated, so if you need any help you can shoot me an email at [email protected]

I always go through Oracle of Seasons then Ages then onto Link's Awakening.
Then they have the gall to call the games Zelda-likes.
