Reposting from last thread.

Is it hard for codebros to implement a layering system on a tile-based RPG for the sprites?

What I mean is, Should I make a base ground tile and all the possible edge combinations in separate transparent sprites, or should I keep it simpler for the programmer by literally making all possible terrain combinations?

>>128343759
in older games, it was done with discrete tiles for all possible combinations. in newer games, it's done that way since you can afford the memory/space for the extra tiles.

There's also interactions between different terrain types and stuff, and it may get to a point where it's easier to have a sprite sheet than to actually map out all the different combinations. Or better yet, instead of using tiles, just use a large sheet for the whole level, or large chunks thereof. Tiles are an artifact of low disk space for level imagery; games these days only need tiles for visual design and production ease reasons. If you know what your level layout is gonna be like from the start, you can just draw it straight.

Nah, you just gotta do it, becoming good takes time but money can overcome that problem.
or better
if you can do art assets all you need to do find a programmer, If I could find an amazing artist I'd drop my project and start fresh. Artists got it good.

or music but music is hardest to make yourself know.

What if I've been successful already in another field, and now I want to enjoy making games since I saved up enough money to support myself? Also have more life experiences and good habits than pretty much anyone just out of highschool or in their 20s? What if I'm in better shape at 30 than most younger people? Especially those on 4chan? Is it ok then?

What are the best timelapse game dev videos?

>>128344230
That is very interesting. Assuming I go the partially transparent sprites way, Am I locked into defining each sprite as either colliding with player or not? or can one make collisions pixel perfect (or at least a mathematically defined shape) without it being too taxing for the computer?

I don't have a programmer at the moment, that's why I ask these things so vaguely, and I think my project would be cumbersome to make in RPG maker, since the combat system I have in mind is not your traditional turn-based thing. But I don't want to be just the "idea" guy so I'm gonna do ALL of the art assets before approaching someone.

go away blizzard, i'm not buying diablo 4
>>
>>128344857
all that stuff depends on what engine you are using and how you are implementing things

the only real consideration between the types of tiles is disk space and workload; if you have a very limited tileset like in Zelda 1 or the GB(C) games, you'd probably assemble the tiles out of edges pasted atop bases anyway so if you can do it with a base tile and an alpha-enabled edge tile, why the fuck not, if it makes your level construction easier. if you have a complex tileset with lots of bits, though, more like Link to the Past, it might become too much of a workload to do it like that in favor of more custom-tailored tiles for the environment.

Making a story "scripting" system is harder than expected.

It's so different from gameplay to make dialogues and cede control for some short cutscenes and juggle quest markers and shit.

I don't even know what components I need to write to make it smoothly working.

>>128347045

Apart from an interesting story, if it's player character interaction have dialog options with different lines even if it's a simple system where it doesn't do anything/effect anything, the illusion of choice is what get's me.

Try and limit taking away player control.

No? You're literally at the whims of the company. Look at all the losers that got fucked over by paying for the old Pro features when the next version became totally free.

Not only is Unity proprietary but it's closed source, at least UE4 gives you source access.

>>128348008

Slow dialog is bad, I hate waiting to read the next word, it then becomes a game guessing the next word in sentence and forget what the hell the conversation was about.

Now that I think of it, if you have NPCs don't wall text the player, try splitting up dialog/story across different NPCs. I can put the story together myself. I don't need one NPC telling the life story of the universe I'm in. I'll put it together myself.

Sound effects for text can work but it can become annoying if there's to much, there's little tricks like raising and lowing pitch of sound. I think Mario did this with jumping.

One last thing, if you can add character name in a conversations do it, even better if you can add player custom names, helps draw the player into the story.

How could one program a character to move more slowly when moving sideways or backwards?

The controls are top-down, WASD to move up/left/down/right, relative to the screen, and the character pivots to face the cursor.
I am not he programmer, but the programmer has hit a snag and I'm looking for help on his behalf: how could someone make it so when the character was moving away from the cursor they only moved at about 60% of their normal speed, that is backwards, or strafing+backwards, and 80% when strafing/strafing+forward (forward being towards the cursor, which the character always faces, not an particular screen facing), only moving at 100% speed when moving directly towards the cursor.

I suggested having WASD be forward, left, right, backwards; and have it control the character relative to it's self, rather than the monitor, but they're set on doing it so that WASD are up/left/down/right; relative to the monitor. My way you could just make A and D impose a value over W, and S a value over all others; being 100/80/60% respectively. They believe the controls to be awkward and counter intuitive; I think they're fine but they'd rather have it their way and I'm okay with that, so long as the character isn't permitted to skate around in any direction and spin in place at the speed of the cursor.

They're right though, I had those for my LD game and it's completely fucked up when you rotate 180 degrees and try to strafe and find out that you move opposite to the key direction.

try it if you want to, buy a stack of flywheels and engines and see how intuitive it is to fly downwards and strafe.

http://pk.itch.io/hexagun

WASD for movement, Q/E for turning, mouse does nothing except shoot(which space also does)

I've kept working on it so I changed to WASD to be to cardinal directions and mouse to aim turreted guns instead which works a damn lot better.

Unity C# is normal C#, just a few versions old. You might be thinking of Unityscript, which is their own version of JS which isn't really used by anyone any more.

You can use blueprint along with C++, but blueprint isn't adequate for actually programming heavy things and isn't really intended for anything beyond being a (powerful) tool for artists to script small things.

Basically, for the average programmery dev, blueprint is too simple and clunky, C++ is too scary and slow to work with (having to recompile for any sort of significant C++ side change in UE4 is a fucking pain for iteration time).

C# hits a nice middle ground that gives you fast writing and iteration times while being powerful and flexible enough that you can basically do whatever you want with it.

Random question about unreal engine 4, been just getting started with it and messing with the text options and HUD and was curious..how can I use the "draw text" function with a string that has multiple lines? So far I can only get text to appear as one long line of words on a single line, rather than a paragraph. So instead of

text ------------continues-------

I'd want
text ---------
(continues)
(continues)

That way it'll fit more logically on the HUD when the text appears. I assumed I could just call the string from something else directly into the "draw text" but it seems even as a variable I also can't add multiple lines, only one long line of text.

I would have done harmony from ~27 to 30 differently.

After the melody 22 seconds (ACBACBE-----ACBACBD-----) i think it would have been better if you skipped that A bass note down to an F (instead of a G like you did) and then had the upper melody change accordingly (something like FCBACBD-----), after that i probably would brought bass down to E which would function as the V of A minor which you were fairly strongly implying with ACBACBE in the first place.

Not a critique though, just my taste-wise opinion.

Rendering with vsync on is easy. You just have a loop and it will block automatically for the correct amount of time when you render.

But how are you supposed to render with vsync off? How do you know when to loop? Do people use timers? How do you know what to set the timer interval to?

>>128358519

Pure RNG is bad, look up AI manipulation in games like Ninja Gaiden and DMC and why it's important for a player.
>>
>>128358464
Either lock at an FPS value (not recommended), or simply try to render as often as possible. If the screen tears, that's the user's fault for turning off Vsync.
>>
>>128358548
I get the impression you have this idea that only bleep bloop music is 'for games' and all other types aren't.
>>
>>128358321
It'd be nice but it's definitely not realistic. In the same way that some political ideologies look good on paper but don't happen to work out.

Code can often be pretty particular to a certain environment, languages, inefficiency etc. I feel like you'd often get people who are like "WHy doesn't this work?! this whole thing is stupid!!"

And with art, I bet you wouldn't get a ton of artists giving finished products ready to be put into a game, it'd probably be more like concept art or a single sprite or very small animation which you can fine on something like open game art.

Music is easy though. Guy makes a song, it fits, drop it in the game.
>>
>>128358464
Your OS has calls to get the time, so use the time difference to know when to do updates and render every frame independently.

Do NOT tie your logic to rendering.

The user can render the game at 20fps or 144fps and it should run the same.

Option 1) Unlocked FPS: Set a thread to render on loop and give no shits

Aesthetics
>>
>>128358464
The best solution is to either use vsync or just render as fast as possible.

High frame rates can't damage your graphics card, outside of having it improperly overlocked or if it was assembled with shoddy components, and even then, that's because of the load and not the frame rate itself.

You need to learn to overcome holes in your knowledge. Learning to learn is a skill in and of itself. Treat your ignorance as a goal. Don't be afraid to pursue things.

your game was great, felt pretty authentically retro. jumping controls added to that, although they did get in the way in a couple of the screens such as that one where you have to kill the 2 blobs and 2 chargers while the platform went up and down in the middle (a few screens right of spawn).

even though i'm not a furry, i am gay as fuck so i enjoyed the lewd scenes as well. maybe they could stand to be a little longer, and add a few shorter/single-image ones in other places that are easier to get?

True, but many people likely didn't know that. I know people in the /v/ thread were confused about where the porn scenes were when they downloaded the wrong version.

It's just me and the programmer. I get to do all the graphics and sound and design junk, and he gets to do whatever magic he does to make it an actual game.

What skills and programs should I learn in anticipation of Source 2's release if I want to make a game with it? I am eager to learn

Post your objective(s) for the next month and screencap it.

I'll come back in one month and we'll see who made it and who didn't.

I made a thread to talk about the sims 1 on /v/ and someone told me to stream it and after half an hour of it viewers started rolling in and the chat got really great. I gotta admit a lot of shit happened in the game.

(in my opinion)
Its probably worth getting the cheapest 25 key usb keyboard you can. Otherwise i wouldnt recommend anything. (unless youre an actual pianist)

I never record my keyboard playing, (and i am actually a piano player with a full 88 keyboard), i just use it to check harmony and stuff like that.

That's pretty funny, actually

Is your game going to be total gay, and how many more animations if any do you have planned for the actual release?

that looks like a lot of fun

>>128360707
like >>128360976 said getting a cheap usb keyboard is pretty good. more important to understand music theory, but a keyboard can help you learn that faster

Grab LMMS and/or sunvox. They're free/inexpensive, and will help you get used to DAWs. All you need for input is a standard mouse/KB, since you can 'draw' the music on a piano roll editor.

If you kinda want to jam along, low latency and a standard QWERY are arright.

LMMS has a virtual piano keyboard everywhere that's playing notes, so you'll learn the steps.

If a square detects that it's colliding with another square, it moves away from that square for a set amount of time, combined with whatever movement toward the point it can make.

Just don't give up. Even if you don't want to, keep trying, force yourself to continue. I was once stuck on mesh cutting for two weeks. Often switching to some other task helps too. Gives your brain time to process the problem in the background.

It's there to keep people just browsing through Itch.io out. Nobody actually checks for it. At worst you'll get called a whodev if nobody recognizes your game.

Some straight furry shota action would totally spice the game up. Even if it's only one scene among many non-straight scenes. Heck, even a milf scene if you must.

I really dig all that. Keep the good work.

By open-work I meant adding black inside the sprite in some way like the salamanders have that single line. There's no other solid sprite on that picture other than the floor dot. It just looks kinda weird that the player is full.

Most straight guys making porn games need to cater to fetishes they don't like if they want to make money. Pretty much every flash porn game these days has "toggle penis" on the thing getting fucked.

All gay unless you get the itch.io one, then there's no lewd content at all.
Might have some bonus straight stuff in the end depending on how burnt out I get on animating things. Going for around 9 dungeons, each with a boss + animation.

If you can accomplish what you just said, and make it affordable and people will buy it. Also, this might be good advice to take if you aren't already doing this.

Make a scene gallery that adds sex scenes as they are unlocked for easy access. This is important.
>>
>>128363423
your game will belong to a genre, that's how games work. but setting out to make a [genre] game is going to result in something less inspired than setting out to make a game that emulates some specific feeling that you think could be made into a good game. Everyone is free to design however they want, but making something directly based on another game just isn't as interesting as a new idea

There's a gallery mode that is literally the last thing that was put into the lewd demo. Basically have to save after beating a boss, then die or restart the game to get to the main menu, and there's a gallery there.

Piss off. Good game design isn't solely about how 'Original Special Snowflake' your game's concept is. Its about how well put-together your game is, and how much you push the game's mechanics.
