Slipstream is made in java, using libgdx specifically

In 2015, I always encouraged devs in this thread to try libgdx, because I think it's a pretty good lib. I think I convinced a few to really use it.

When my kickstarter reached the last 72 hours, still $1500 away from the goal, I tweeted it to libgdx's creator. I thought 'well, maybe I can get an extra $50 or something'.

he tweeted about it, asked the libgdx community to contribute, said he would pledge more money if we got close to the goal. He helped so much that, after he got involved, I reached the goal in (maybe less than) 24 hours. the guy basically saved my project, single handedly.

so, yeah, positive karma and all. I have to thank java/libgdx for that.

>>128781543

I'm a really old school OOP guy. I rarely use inheritance or anything fancy, I don't even know exactly what is an entity system.

gdx has an ApplicationListener class which receives the callbacks from the backend. [whatever platform you're running on] calls render() on the ApplicationListener to do a game loop, and that's where you put everything.

I have a Game class that extends ApplicationListener, and Game handles the (fixed-step) game loop, calling update() and render() on the current GameState.

To be specific, I wrote a virtual machine capable of running CHIP-8 games, and an assembler to translate easier-to-read assembly language into my own CHIP-8 games.

>>128783026

it has a rectangle class with collision detection functions.

gdx has a lot of funcionality I never used (scene graph, animation class, sprite class), because I only use it as a thin layer over openGL, Slipstream needs "low level" (for java/opengl standards) optimization to run well.

I messed with the trigger block objects and made different kinds that are dependent on which switches are hit or not, in this instance the player needs to find out how to press both switches and still be able to get to the bed, though it's probably a no brainer but it's a start to learning basic problem solving for this game.

The new dark grey switches are shadow switches that can only be activated with shadow objects or light, the red switches can only be activated with shadow objects or real objects, the grey switch doesn't care about real objects.

Well it's my first project in C, so I learnt a lot about C. It was also my first finished project in SDL, so I learnt a lot about that, and how difficult it is dealing with it since it's low level (I used just that anyway because any other libraries would be overkill).

As for 0x6XXX, it just sounds tricky, but break it into clear nested for loops, 1 for each line of the sprite, and 1 for each bit of each line

What's better for state management:

A stack of game states that the game engine pops through, with each state returning the next state of the game.

An enum-based switch statement that the game engine uses to determine which state it's in, and only acts on that state.

Which then allowed a new PlayingState to be made from that TitleState if the player chooses new game? If that happens enough I could theoretically have dozens of duplicate states in memory then, right?

>I'm having trouble standing the how these opcodes translate into game logic.
To add, for my game loop, it starts with the typical init everything first, close everything last, but for the middle, it's an infinite loop that does the following:

- fetch opcode
- decode opcode
- execute opcode
- check if 1000.0/60 (for 60fps) has passed
- if it has, decrease delay and sound if above 0, and if sound is not 0, make sure sound is playing
- get the status of keys being pressed
I also add a key press event for Escape, as CHIP-8 doesn't seem to come with a way to close your program in its spec (maybe in the actual hardware it's when you encounter 0x0000)

And that's pretty much it, nothing complicated

>>
>>128785174
It's limited because it's difficult to have states with different data, and any state relationships have to be expressed with an explicit, external data structure (like a stack). Plus, putting all the logic for different states in the same switch statement is just messy.

Just thing of how you can use those mechanics in relation to enemies, for jumping Mario has already perfected the formula a long time ago: flying enemies, enemies with spikes on their backs, etc. With the tongue you can get a lot more creative, perhaps some tall enemy carrying a shield or something that requires you to use the tongue on those hooking points to get behind them.

One last question to the anon helping me with state management:

When I inevitably have to create a new titlestate (the player has exited the playingstate through a menu, etc) is it better to give that new titlestate a null previous state or to supply it with whatever the actual previous state was?
>>
>>128785904
It's quite simple once you've just given a glance at assembly language, know it's general flow, or worked in BASIC before, but look at pic related, you have all the functions you need for a game. You execute them as fast as you want (even drawing, but you only draw after clearing the screen or drawing a sprite), but delay and sound timers go down at 60Hz

If you're still confused, let me know what ideas or assumptions you can make about how the game loop will work, and I will try to piece together the rest

Denuvo is a service to delay piracy, it probably costs a lot and not worth it.

When I poll for input in SDL, the timestamps on the events are just the time that I polled them. This makes them kind of useless.

Wouldn't it make more sense for the events to have a timestamp that reflects when they actually occurred rather than when they are polled? I would think that the OS or windowing system would provide the former over the latter.

The only solution I can think of is taking each event and linearly assigning it a new timestamp based on the difference in time between the current event polling loop and the previous one.

So:

time1 input_event0
time1 input_event1
time1 input_event2
time1 input_event3

time1 seems to represent the *end* of the interval that events0-3 occured in. Then I can use the previous loop time (say time0), and linearly assign each event over the interval (time1-time0)

I really don't like this but dunno what else to do. Does this look weird to anyone else?

It's in unity already.

I want to prototype a hands-on inventory system for my FPS game.

I have 2 ideas so far, and all of them seem to have some drawbacks:

Idea1: tarp
Usage: The quick use items in the game are all readily available, but you can store items on your bag for.. well, longer-term storage
I was thinking i could drop a tarp, ie the unfolded canvas bag on the ground, and you'd have to place the items you want to store on it, then it'd get warped back onto your back as a bag with the items "hidden" inside it until you decided to use it again.
Idea2: open bag
Usage: The camera rotates to look down in a fixed position. The bag is opened wide in your hand. The contained items are spawned within it scaled down to cheat the world-space size of the bag a bit. You just select an item by looking at it in order to take it out. Moving around with WASD and jumpnig will shake things around in the bag, allowing you to wiggle around the items until you can see the one you like.

Thanks to the anon that suggested that state management article. Everything is so much simpler now and I'm not constantly worried about spaghetti-like state relationships based on the game's state stack and worrying where the game is going to go next.

This makes things SO much easier.

Perhaps somewhere in your code there's an if-else statement, that goes about like:

>obj.y = obj.y + 1

This would cause it to spazz out every frame, since in this example it'd keep jumping between 1 and 0.

think of it this way. you were either going to get useful responses, shit responses, no response, or any mix of those. if you got a shit response, well that sucks, but the alternative would have been no response. not everyone browses these threads all day, so you can't expect good responses at all times. it's either hit or miss, since the thread continues on. unlike a forum, where your post might get sufficient views. if you don't get any responses, or get shit responses, just post it again. i for one don't mind the shit responses in place of getting no responses, because i can laugh it off. i have thick skin. i recommend working on that, if it's an issue. thick skin helps in all walks of life.

Do furry games sell more or less?


Furry games (Dust, 5NAF, undertale) Seem to sell a shit load.

undertale wasn't really a furry game. more like a monster game with a human protag and a couple furry type characters. 5NAF i wouldn't count as a furry game either, since they're freaky robot skeletons. furries kind of made it their own by changing how the characters look completely. dust was very well made for an indie title, good luck making a game like that. if your game sucks, even if it's furry related, it won't sell.

To compare the most popular non-sfw game from here, assuming it was selling at its cheapest at 2.49 for its entire lifetime, has grossed over 3m

A function was being called twice. At first it was being called because it was an event handler for a button click event, as expected. However, the NAME of the handler was OnClick, which I forgot is the signal that gets sent out when a button is clicked, so it was also being invoked due the feature of all functions named OnClick on an object being called when a button is clicked

release a sfw game, use this audience of 10-30k to help push and talk about it. Not all will because they are interested in a nsfw title, but you are left with a better chance with your sfw game than if you tried to market/release it without this audience of perverts.

Maybe I should elaborate. If people are shitting on me then it's a surefire signal that something is wrong and I need to fix it immediately.

I need opinions, I'm adding in auras to my game for towers, the way they work is they are their own object and they apply a buff object to the towers in their range.

What I'm trying to decide on is whether to keep auras as a self-contained system so I don't have to worry about them or keep track of all auras currently in play.

Right now if the auras are self-contained I have to have them constantly do radius checks to see if any new towers have been placed in their radius.

If I don't do it self contained I have to iterate over every aura every time I spawn a tower to have them all check if the newly placed tower is within their range.

Which is the smarter decision? Or is there a better method entirely?

You can't move right and left at the same time, so why isn't this a simple if-elseif statement setup?

I take it you may be using buffered keypresses or want neither left or right to have priority so simply make the first if case be if both are being held down and then have the left/right elseif statements.

What do you think AGDG? Not really sure what direction to take a rhythm beat game. Runs smooth in game.

Tbh if you can do all that solo I think I don't begrudge him doing well.


From what people are saying here it sounds like including furs (even if its minor roles) are a given as they seem to drive sales, and a fan base.

I wouldn't be surprised if more low effort stuff keeps showing up on steam greenlight if that is the case though, as the amount of asset flip show some devs just don't give a fuck if it earns a buck.


Still its useful to know ty for the replys.

Keep it just using 4 keys for control and figure out a control scheme for the other hand.

Go full Henry Hatsworth, people have to play the rhythm game while also platforming, their performance in each one effects the other.

Or do it Project Diva style, where you will need 2 sets of directional keys to hit combos and fast sequences effectively

>>128799556
There's nothing comprehensive, but then again there doesn't need to be. Shader programming is just programming. It's descriptions of particular effects that you are looking for, right? You should be able to find stuff that will help you pretty easily just with Google.

Why would you need to save textures or fonts?

what the fuck? you save the references to them like "your/stupid/texture.png" and not the texture itself
and yes, XNA can do that

a Texture2D was part of my displaycomponent and a spritefont was a part of my messagecomponent. Which seems like it's obviously the wrong way to do it now.

Well for Texture2D I can just save a Rectangle source and then use that source from a loaded spritesheet to draw the entity, but I'm not sure what to do about fonts.

If I resign myself to buy arts from an artist I don't have to credit him in my game right?

Not agdg specific, this is a well backed position amongst programmers.

usually alright as long as you don't claim to be artist yourself in credits.

That's a bit recent, /mu/ used to be better. But I'll concede, that was a poor comparison/analogy.

>even though I already gave him free money.
if he didn't do anything for your money, shouldn't you be able to do nothing and get the same result? seems like you just don't respect the amount of effort that goes into making good art. if you're talking only assets off a store or something, read the terms that come with it.
>>
>>128801925
"free advertising",
You will never release a successful game.. so that point is null.

There's a couple of smart guys in there, but they are mostly tied to their own individual concepts of theory, but it's not like anyone has any seriously valid questions or concerns about theory there anyway. In any of the basic cases, you could read it in a book, watch a tutorial, etc. it's mostly technical
