>>81874936
dude, where are you learning python
http://learnpythonthehardway.org/

Anyways a quick definition is: whatever is in __init__ is basically applied to and unique to every object that is made from that class when the object is made/called/whatever-you-wanna-say, so long as you define them when you make the object.

class Ball(object):
def __init__(self, color, velocity):
self.color = color
self.velocity = velocity


ball = Ball("red", 5)

It'll then make a Ball object (ball) and it'll have the attributes "red" and 5

if I do (in total)
ball1 = Ball("red", 5)
ball2 = Ball("blue", 6)

then ball1.color is red, while ball2.color is blue, etc.

Note that
ball = Ball(5)
Will just give you an error, as it expects 2 arguments - color, and then velocity. note "self" is..kind of "automatically applied." as python is hiding a little bit of syntax from you.

if you didn't have init you'd need to do stuff like:

class Ball(object):
def set_velocity(self, velocity):
self.position = new_position
def set_color(self, new_color):
self.color = new_color

ball = Ball()
ball.set_velocity(5)
ball.set_color("red")

which can be (and is) very dumb

>>81876151

I dunno what happened here. I guess I decided to do both position and velocity, and then fucked up.
Whatever - it isn't hard to figure out the correct meaning.
"(self, velocity)" -> "(self, new_velocity)" & "self.position = new_position" -> "self.velocity = new_velocity"

A good idea and well-thought-out design (inseparably).
Something, simply, that would inspire, and make one easily see some magnificent end-vision, if only with a proper implementation of art assets by their own hands.
Of course, that is the best-case scenario, one in which an artist will put in better than their best work. But there is also money, or a need for practice in artistic skill and working with others, which may motivate an artist to work on a project.

Yep. It can be a tab or 20 spaces, or 1 space, or whatever you want, it just has to be consistently done. Usually it's a tab or 4 spaces.
I like it if only because it forces people to write code that isn't ugly or at the least is consistent.

How did you implement the camera? I noticed that it only moves up or down when it really needs to.

Hi, in java can I make a boolean equal 1 in anyway. For example

I'm using the flixel library so it comes with its own camera but the camera has bounds where it can't pass. when the player is near that door, it's showing the bottom of the level, there is nothing below what you see so the camera does not move any more down. The camera has a rectangle in the center of the screen and when the player reaches the edges of that rectangle, it moves the camera in that direction, unless moving in that direction would pass the bounds.

I have a game I started work on a couple of years ago. I created a complete prototype by myself containing all of the levels, puzzles, enemies, bosses, endings and etc. to make up an entire game. I finished that about a year ago and started working on it with a team of 3d modelers that I had assembled.

Long story short, the project fizzled due to the modelers not getting shit done and my own unavailability to manage the project due to my full-time work. About a month ago I started cleaning up the prototype and had a friend test it for general consumption, then created a site for it a few days ago.

Any others with failed dev stories?

Well, here on the left is how a shadow is normally cast, and on the right is what your game seems to suggest a casting shadow is like.
From your game's perspective, it doesn't quite make sense unless there's a wall very close in the background that the shadow is being cast upon. If you could, perhaps, make objects stop _casting_ shadows in this way, but still _receive_ them, it could be more realistic.

It's hard to define if that's "real" 3D or not. The track is made of openGL triangles, but they're procedurally generated, there's no 3D models or 3D rotation involved.

Make the original image very high quality and use a filtering effect to make it look smoother then.

Pick a language/toolset.
If you want to PROGRAM, then C#, and either Unity since it's the most popular and user friendly. Or some other framework I don't know. If you want all your tools neatly contained in an environment. Gamemaker.

If you want to get down and dirty, then C++ with Code::Blocks and either SFML/ or SDL.

1. Ride on the name train of other games
2. Your game should have lots of downloads on release, so just buy fake downloads and reviews then, they are cheap and the big name developers also do this.
3. Git gut at marketing your game outside of the store because the google play store is not made to find your game nobody cares about. Get a good twitter or tumblr following with shitty pixelart and a female protagonist.

its just a storyboard for a bigger project

So your this princess, little girl, in this voctorian esque themed castle on an island secluded from the world.
Each generation of your family is cursed by this clan of black magic cultists, granting a member of your family, i.e. your father. imortality past death, in return for his first born daughter, i.e. you.

knowing this your mother contacts their religious goody goody folk to get her soul kind of, extended, past death, to protect you in case your fathers soul is tainted from the imortality curse.

Should i continue?

>>81898675
KEEP GOING, I'M ABOUT TO CUM
>>
>>81898959
Its not a VN.

I wana say its a horror ish game. but im not sure.

The idea i want, is that you are in modern times, but you dont know that, being raised in a victorian nobles household thats all you know.

What happens is your father kills himself, out of curiocity of imortality and due to the temptation of it as well.

Which brings in the cultists, they swarm your castle with spectres, changing the original mood of the game from a warm toasty adventure game to a fucked up horror/suspense game.

your fathers spirit lingers as some sord of black cloud, and your mother, worried about you, tries to save you from the spectres, and dies trying, having her spirit linger as well.

I want it to be a sort of pick your own way of solving the problem game.

Your father tries to help you, by granting you these spells, automatically passing the curse on to you.

continue?

>implying game maker isnt good for babby stepping your way to maeking game

aight sorry, alota typing.
>>81899125
So get this.

This is a constant cycle, pretty much the same outcome every time, infact. This is where i wanted a mechanic to come into play.
PvP.
Very dark souls esque, if you choose alot of your dads powers, which later get alot more fucked up instead of your mothers powers, you have a chance to join pretty much like, a girl harvesting cult, invading other worlds of other players, to kill them.

But i didnt want straight pvp when you invade. I want you to become a like, mechanic on the map, like a horror trigger you place on the map, so every time you play through a zone, itl be diferent beaased on what the invader whants to do.

And once you are sufficiantly scared, which shows by hoiw hard your girl is freaking out, you get invaded and have to use your powers to outrun or fight, depending on who you chose your powers from, you can chose from both peoploe btw. so a mix of powers.
>>
>>81899323
A dev who focuses on story first before anything else is a bad dev, no offense. And i don't really see a lick of gameplay details in your description.
Continue anyway, don't even ask. Your patronizing
>>
>>81899323
Sure, keep going.

The settings sounds cool enough and it could be very good if you manage a proper execution.

The problem is that you're just ideaguying, you need a bit more mechanics thought out before you go all out on the setting.
>>
>>81899771
>tfw my game started with a silly premise and eventually evolved into four other separate games I'll never get bored with

Everyone does things differently.
>>
>>81898397
it's not an issue of performance. It's an issue of ease-of-use vs robust and trying to figure out what functionality the game actually needs.

I still can't decide between having collision boxes for each frame of animation or just having one body collision box and one attack collision box that's only active when in an attack state.

The second one is a lot easier, but I don't know if I'd ever have attacks that can have dynamic hitboxes.
>>
>>81899693
The game is a little convoluted. Almost final fantasy territory in terms of story.
>>
>>81899771
Well, gameplay wise.

Its third person, over the shoulder ish. You basicaly go through different zones of your castle, choosing in each zone, one power, from either your dad or your mom. Mom being more passive and evasiony, father more aggressive and eventualy murderous.

You move through your house, looking for your father, as his spirit calls you to a room in the house, he automaticaly grants you your first spell, no mana or anything, but cooldown based. its sort of a puzzle ish game, trying to get past spectres and other events of the game using diferent spells and having diferent outcomes based on what you use.
Theres this one moment in the game i want, theres this group of mercenaries, outside of the island, and are the only ones who know of the curse, Called Bastard Squad.
3 men, in this generation, are hard equipped swat men, bust through your house and try to pull you out, you can try and harm them like your father asks, or run from them like your mother wants, you eventualy get caught, but depending on what actions you took, they will threaten to kill you, thinking your far to tainted, or try and pull you out, thinking they can save you,.
>>
>>81900468
Eventualy after a few zones pvp is enabled, allowing your worlds to be invaded by other cult princesses, witha timer, you can try to avoid being caught from a while, or kill them. either or is neutral.

You can redo maps to get your character diferent powers, kinda like a talent tree, so if you want to swap your powers for another you have to run through the zone where it is and complete it.

Its very horror esque, and i want it to run off a fear system.

You being the innocent loli princess you are, you get panicked from all the fucked up shit that happens, watching your mother get brutally murdered in front of you, the spectres killing off the staff, constant anxiety, she starts to instinctivly shake and panic around fearfull things, thus increasing your chance to fear cast, chosing a random spell you dont want to be cast instead of the spell you picked, so you want to try to not cast while scared, or you might cast more aggressive spells from your dad, if you dojnt want to, you use ytour mothers to flee, and find away around them.
>>
>>81900438
It's ok, just go for easy to use shit like GameMaker. I don't know about Construct, but I've read that it's also stupid easy. You will need to learn to program a bit more, but it's a good way to get started.
>>
>>81900941
but in terms of like, combat, have you chose your dads side, its targeted combat, using the more aggresive spells is an easyer way to clear through the zones, but curses you more and more, so using your other spells from your mother, to sort of puzzle your way through the environment, or shit even just to run away from shit you cant hide from, is better than just killing them.
>>
>>81900438

You've got a lot of story there (and it's pretty cool), but I'm kind of worried about the actual game.
It sounds like you pretty much want to clone Darksouls, which was made by a hell of a lot of people and money.
How much gamedev experience do you have?

If I were you, I write down all that story somewere and try to leave it alone about it for a bit. Just focus on stripping down the mechanics to the bare minimum needed to be enjoyable.

That sucks.
I know how it feels, to wake up and have a huge migraine and then throw up. It's happened all to often... Luckily for me, after the horribly sharp hour-or-two-long headache and the inevitable puking, I've always felt better almost instantly. Somehow throwing up is an instant cure for me and I haven't been able to find out why exactly.
However, and more luckily, I haven't had a migraine in a long time; I feel that I can actually owe that to not eating aged Parmesan late at night.
I would do some tests to see if that's really the case, but you know, I'd rather not risk going through that...

Put the discombobulator in the trigonomic time fluxuator.
Use a damn Actuating Pulsar if you have to.

beyond pretty. Think you need to make your title a bit more sinister Beyond that looks fantastic.
Maybe something like this?

>>81912001

Forget the pretentious crap you've seen, Twine is the easiest way to write simple hypertext games. Problem is the coding is pretty limited and I'm trying to make an adventure game/interactive fiction game.

what about Inform

It can do a bit more than a VN.

Does anyone know of a opengl based engine for Android that lives in only part of the screen?

I would like to have a view with the game and still use the Android API for the remaining space.

For example Unity does not let you use the Android API very effectively and you have to work with shitty plugins that are a total pain.

Also critique my button.

I love the taste and texture of french toast when the bread is soaked and the egg inside isn't fully cooked. I feel like this is what people like about runny french omlettes.

Well I could potentially use either of those but I have nearly every gameplay feature working in Twine, except I want to have inventory puzzles have multiple solutions i.e. whether you take the story path that gets you the crowbar or the lockpick set, both can get you through the locked door. I'm not sure how I could implement that in Twine when everything is set into "rooms", so when the player opens a door you tell Twine to go to the room called "opened door" which will play the next bit. I think I'm going to have to create room names with variables.

I'd associate that with "back", but I guess "new game" would work quick enough, especially since it's close to the firefox "refresh" arrow.

But buttons don't exist in a vacuum and does that match the style for the game?

Dammit I want some toast with peanut butter on it now.

Also, should I buy Prison Architect on steam? I enjoyed what I pirated and it seems be being updated, but 30bux is a bit steep.
>>
>>81913114

Why? Because of processing power? Or because I should be using another language? Because hypertext can run on a toaster, and I've already programmed the rest of a game into Twine. What I'm doing is still much, much easier than what most people in this thread need to create new features.

Absolutely not that's fucking ridiculous.

Because it's going to add up and give you obscure bugs later on that will make you want to kill yourself.

SDL learnin' continues. You can move and shoot bullets. There's a limit of 8 bullets on screen at once, but they go fast enough that I can't even manage to hit that limit. Once I figure out how to limit the framerate (from my googling it's more complicated than in Java and requires different functions on different CPUs), that might change.

Memory pools are nice and cheap. He could increase it to thousands and there's be virtually no performance degradation.

Yeah that's why I'm asking "why"
If the game can't even get up to 8 to begin with (since they disappear faster than they appear) I guess it doesn't really matter, but it still seems weird.
>>
>>81913950
introduce the upside down without the spikes first
i dunno

i was thinking about having a slightly transparent AI doing it over and over but i don't know if that would be confusing.
