I'm just about finished properly implementing the new ship. It has two weapon slots that you can fire individually or simultaneously, and the unique behavior it applies to weapon projectiles is the explosive effect shown in the webm. I still have some things to finish with the shield effect, like a hit animation, deactivating animation, and some sort of effect to apply to enemies that collide with it. I'll try to finish that and possibly a new weapon and enemy over the weekend

Slipstreamdev, you really need to answer the people in the kickstarter comments section. A lot of them are voicing concern over your dramatic turn in planned content.

You're probably right. I'll probably limit the scrolling background thing to maybe like one or two areas since that really is an iconic Yume Nikki thing. I'm not sure what to replace the current one with though. Maybe I'll just make it stars so the area looks like it's in outer space.

Well I mean, you can even still do it but just do it better. YN was (mostly) really goddamn lazy with the floors, just upscaled stupid images.

If you did something that actually reacted to the player, or made it more intricate in a couple ways, it'd already be better.

But still probably better to just avoid, and try to find ways to make the game creepy in your own way.

Just tried all kind of different techniques and it's a mess.
Still I think I sort of understood the whole pipeline, you really need to be careful when modeling if you want texturing to be easier.

Thanks for the anon who suggested to still try, guess it was worth a shot to learn about it.

Still.. spent literally 2 hours putting seams and texturing, I'm really starting to think that I shouldn't be wasting my time. I wanted to code, not to learn art.

Agdg was started specifically because people in /v/ were tired of seeing the same gamedev thread everyday like every other general that's the reason generals exist.
You got greedy for your "better" threads and now they're back on the blacklist. It has nothing to do with shitposters.
>>
>>128734004
just remember this. what you did there is more than 90% of game devs can do. sure, it's simple, but it looks good for someone new to modeling. a few tweaks and it would be perfect in a game. anyway, you're now one step closer to your goal if you want to end up doing the art assets yourself. even simple art has charm.

I have a question for you agdg,
what makes a roguelike fun for you?

I want to do a half story driven linear game, and half roguelike. So you visit towns and certain levels are handmade, while dungeons and other certain levels are procgen. Before I get started I want to know what makes procgen fun for players.

your model actually looked alright, but the texturing is awful
your mesh is very low detail, it would look alright if the character was 30-60 pixels tall on screen, but the detail on the texture kind of implies that you want it to display bigger than that, in which case your mesh needs alot more definition. as for the texture, the color selection being awful is the most glaring mistake, but its easy to learn what colors match. and I dont know what you're going for with the outlines on the mesh edges but it doesnt work

honestly, from what i was reading, it seemed like normal /v/ posters were pissed off that the thread was becoming more like a general thread for some reason. i don't go there much, so i don't know what the whole general vs non-general thread debate is, but that looked like the case to me.

for the record, i enjoy those threads normally.

If you have things like levels/upgrade-able stats of any kind let the handmade dungeons be possible to outlevel/overpower but keep the procgen stuff scaling to the player. It would make for a nice mix of gameplay tight off the bat if everything couldn't become retardo easy from grinding but also let you breeze through the more scenic and thought out areas if you wanted to (you ARE going to put some love and care into the handmade stuff right, anon?)

>your model actually looked alright, but the texturing is awful
Yeah I just tried to hand-paint things on the fly, didn't even bother to read at some color theory I admit, will do that.

I didn't want to use the ambient this time just to see how it turns out but I guess as a beginner I should just use that for the time being.
The thing is, I have literally no idea how to shadow properly the parts of the texture. I'm just using the default photoshop brush to color + my mouse too so it doesn't help that much.

There's are permanent drawfag, Undertale and Smash threads. Often also Dark Souls.
During AGDQ there were AGDQ general threads, and now there's some gay ass fighting games tournament and there's a general for that.
Similarly there's an emulation general on /vr/ despite there being an emugen here.
Generals on /v/ are perfectly normal because people want to distance themselves from the clique mentality of /vg/.

Games generally have gameplay with assets on top, aside from some RPG's and VN's. Your best bet would be to either make assets for someone else's game, or to go into a genre that doesn't demand much from your assets.

>>128736078
Depends on the scope of the game.
I'd probably charge anywhere between $1000-$10000 depending on how long it will take me.

Yeah, I noticed that with flat colors and the ambient things seems to blend much better.
In the end low poly is all about details, and I think that's a skill you need at least a good year to get.

You're ignoring the namefag problem that /v/ simply doesn't have.

The biggest retard we've had as far as wanting to be a famous namefag was rotatedev and he self immolated a while ago serving a good lesson to everyone else. Unfortunately googem will probably always be around and he's a major clique namefag faggot. But nobody respects him so he's harmless as well.

It's the opposite for me - the only things I CAN get done reliably are associated with grades or a salary.

Last summer I worked 60 hour weeks for over 3 months straight as a "CS intern" (ha) consistently and did a good job, though I was miserable.

And yet despite this, I seem to consistently lose motivation to work on personal projects after a short period of time, usually after I've done the research necessary to start working.

Prototyping.

You can even just do shit on cards / whiteboard / whatever first, to see if it feels like it'd actually work.

I wouldn't bother making a game I didn't think was fun. But I wouldn't lie to myself that I'm making the game for myself when it's intended to be played by other people. Especially if I were selling it.
Anyone who allows their game to be played by another person besides themself isn't making the game for themself.

What I meant was the quality of my code as an intern was roughly on par with what I write for personal projects, besides when my manager rushed me.

Though I would agree that it was uninspiring work. I never had a real interest in what I was doing, at best only the technical problems I had to solve. If I was writing a game for money's sake I imagine it would be completed but turn out extremely boring and bland.

In what format do sprite-based games usually save animation sequences? I'm currently doing the following:
A struct holds the name of the sprite sheet to read from, the dimensions of a given sprite, an array of integers where each element encodes frame information (see below), and a pointer to the animation struct the program should read after it finishes with this one if it hasn't been assigned another struct to execute next.

An animated entity consists of a set of coordinates, a pointer to an animation struct and an integer animation index. When an animated entity is loaded it is assigned an animation struct and its index is set to 0. Each element of the array in the animation struct is read in the following fashion: an integer equal to or less than 1000 is read as "render the Nth sprite on the sheet then increase the index by 1". An integer above 1000 is read as "render the sprite located at i-1 for N-1000 milliseconds before advancing the index". Each loop the program goes over each entity and renders the frame its index corresponds to in its animation struct. Changing a sequence mid-animation is as simple as assigning the entity's pointer another struct and changing the index to the desired value.

The problem is that "fun" is subjective. Some people find it fun to slam their heads into things, but I'm guessing that's not what devs mean when they're trying to make something "fun",

For games "fun" refers more to kinesthetics than anything else. How does it feel, is it exciting to move the player around and attack things or jump on things or slam them into spikes? Then it's a fun game.

When not discussing the overall "feel" of the controls, you're dealing more with "experience" than "fun".

Visual Novels are an experience, they're interesting, they can be entertaining, but very few describe them as fun.

What have been dubbed "Walking Simulators" are experiences. Rarely would they be called fun either, but people do enjoy going through them.

It may be a terribly vague word on it's own, but the industry as a whole seems to regard it as a catchall for the "feel" of the controls in a given game. It differs slightly by genre, but it still appears heavily based on the actual controls and how enjoyable they are to use.

>>128747547
I think the problem is that its trajectory is curved. Lightning forks off in sudden angles, it doesn't slowly veer.

How do you make a Metroidvania interesting?

>>128747882
Good controls helps get you in the zone / doesn't pull you out, sure.

But then there's games like Dwarf Fortress and Space Station 13 which have absolute god awful shit tier control schemes, and yet are still considered "fun as heck". Those two games are janky in a lot of ways more than just controls, too.

Right just looks like a generic low poly untextured unity game, that's why people are saying they like left better.

How to use C++ instead of GDScript in Godot?
>>
>>128748145
By not having "lock and key" items. That means upgrades that have no gameplay purpose other than opening up a new path.

So instead, think stuff like grappling hooks with combat applications. Or even weapons with completely different movesets that also happen to allow passing a certain kind of obstacle. Melee weapons that break terrain. Projectiles with different kinds of trajectories. Super Metroid is one of the best games ever, but "Missiles" and "Super Missiles" isn't terribly inspired, to be honest, because they function exactly the same.

Double jump technically fulfils these requirements, but it's also the most overused game upgrade of all time.
>>
>>128748145
Study Metroid and Castlevania and make and actual Metroidvania not just a side-scrolling dungeon crawler that has a tiny bit of back-tracking in it.

>>128748202
That was my point on genres. It differs based on genre. Dwarf Fortress is not the same sort of game as say Super Meat Boy. For most people Super Meat Boy is a much funner game. For Dwarf Fortress and Space Station 13, you're dealing with an entirely different set of people. The people who find those two games fun may not like platformers at all, let alone ones where you're expected to die/fail a lot.

It depends on the genre, but it still relates to the controls.

So figure out your genre, your target playerbase, and then learn what those players find fun.

Actually.. I still wanted to see how it'd turn if I rig her and she's kind of cute when animated. I like the simplicity of the flat colors like the other anon suggested.

I was being a wee bit of an ass with the suggestion. You don't actually have to study them. More look into them and try to see why there is a genre now that combines them.

It's not just backtracking but meaning backtracking, it's also how the powerups are distributed, how the puzzles relate to the rest of the game/levels. Both also had hidden things and pathways you could unlock early if you knew which combination of moves to make/where to look.

Soft locks and Hard locks in relation to level design are a thing to look into.

Now it's "Cave Story", is it Cave Story? It's a Metroidvania! When...no, that one is not. Cave Story is a dungeon crawler.

Shadow Complex is totally a Metroidvania, so you have that for comparing things.

Ori and the Blind Forest is very close but I don't know, something feels off about calling it one.

Exploration is the most important aspect of a Metroidvania, as far as I'm concerned.

I've been lately looking into ECS based game development to avoid inheritance hell. I think I get the general idea about having bunch of entites object with unique ID and some systems responsible for drawing, collisions etc. What would be the best way to implement this? A basic class for entity with a method to create a new one with a new ID sounds good, but then how would I connect a system responsible for drawing, collisions etc. and data to a newly created entity?

As for "using" coffee. I drink it for the taste too, it's the only thing beside water I drink, which might be why I consider 2 cups kind of low.

Your art looks neat and all but... your characters feel way too static. I know it's supposed to feel depressing (?) but you could probably stand to include a lot more movement to make your world feel alive.

after a fuckton of hours, I managed to get some astar to get around walls while also having free movement in the map, rts-like
in the gif im spamming right click to move the little guy
next step is to smooth the astar because it looks too robotic and its kinda obvious how it starts calculating the astar before reaching the wall, making bigger paths

what do you think /agdg/

/agdg/, what's so bad about memes in games?

Like what's wrong if I put a reference to that frog face or guy fox. I get if it's overdone and spammed everywhere or too obvious then it would be annoying, but that's like with anything. Quicktime events and chest high walls can get annoying too, or bad dialogue when characters won't shut up or hurry up and open the door the npc is supposed to be hacking open.

I get that people hate memes when games have them but no one actually explains why they hate them. It's almost like hating on memes is a meme itself. And this is 4chan we're talking about, the world's most infamous meme factory.

Would you guys hate my game if I included a hidden chest in the game where you open it and instead of treasure or gold or a new item, instead it's a trollface that pops out.
>>
>>128747648
That's the thing. You need to be good at something in order to come up with ideas in the field.
If you are shit at your trade then you can't just come up with good/viable ideas, which is why "ideaguys" are frowned upon.
An idea isn't good when it sounds good, the implementation is the test of an idea.

Memes are just a really dumb form of humour. It's okay on 4chan because being anonymous cuts out a lot of the cringeworthiness of going 'look at me being dumb' but otherwise you're only making yourself look stupid.
>Would you guys hate my game if I included a hidden chest in the game where you open it and instead of treasure or gold or a new item, instead it's a trollface that pops out.

You have to use tactical meming. Casual memers don't put any thought or strategy into the way they meme, and it results in a poor product, better suited for somewhere like reddit. More experienced memers know that in order for their players to top kek (the ultimate goal of any memer) a more subtle touch is involved. Pepes have been out the window ever since the Great Crash of 2015, so I'll leave it as an exercise to the reader to figure out the optimal strategy which results in the highest level of keks per second (KPS).

Keep the questions direct and simple. You are asking "how do I do everything".

It is sprite animation so it doesn't have to be super fast. I'd abstract away all the details. The whole assigning special rendering to numbers seems pointless. Use something else like a mode or what ever.

I'd aim for something like: myEntity.playAnimation("jump", Style::LOOPING);

first it makes a simple astar between the squares, then I smooth it by checking which is the farest away square that doesn't have a wall between it and the current location of the mob.
and also each time it moves a certain distance, it does the farest away square check again. The distance is basically a square.

I don't think I did exactly the same than here but I used it as some kind of example

>>128750264
Including memes in your game is a bad idea for a couple reason.

For one, it dates your game. Imagine playing a game where a major meme prank is the rickroll.

The main reason to avoid putting memes in your game is because they're simply that: a meme. It's referential humour. At best, you'll get a gag out of people who are amused by that, but you'll also get the people who are "anti-meme" but you're not really contributing to your game's content in anyway.

If you really want to include them, it's best to leave them as an easter egg and not let them anywhere near anything that is integral to gameplay.

Also, I wouldn't liken putting memes in your game as placing chest high walls or quicktime events everywhere. It's a bit different.
