This post is for yesterday :)

I won't develop on the until Monday because Italy is waiting for me!!

Day 7:

Again: Damn Flash!

I did the animation of my first enemy again. And what happened when I nearly finished it? Flash crashed and I didn't save anything ;(
So, I started AGAIN and saved - let me think - 100 times and yea: Here it is:

ATTENTION! 1.6 MB, because Flash always destroys short images. I'm very sorry, but I can't do anything
Enemy walks

Punch, Punch

Now you can walk around, and fight against a horde of enemies.

And yes, they can move and die, but for now they are as helpless as they look like :D

Why does nobody told me, that following code:

Code: Select all
Method Compare:Int(withObject:Object)
   Local l_hObject:TObject = TObject(withObject)
      
   Return (Self.Y - l_hObject.Y)
End Method


is also used for identifying objects!!!
I thought that it is just used for sorting the objects and not for differentiating them!

This:

Code: Select all
lObjects.Remove(tmpObject)


suddenly deleted 2 or 3 objects on the same coordinates (sometimes the player itself :) )

It took me 4 days (!) to find this strange implementation, which Mark Sibly has done. I always thought, that the address is the identifier...

Day 8:

Particle Engine

I implemented a small and easy to use particle engine. For now it is just used for creating blood if you hit an enemy with your weapon. Hopefully later it'll find usage everywhere in the game. In my opinion particles improve the looking of a game enormously :)

Fighting mechanics

Next I sensitized the fighting mechanics and tried to find and get a good feeling. But well, it is always impossible for the programmer to make a perfect control ;)

If you want, you can download the game and give me some hints, what I can make better.

Attention!!!: It has 11 MB and you can just fight against enemies which cannot attack you. Decide for yourself if it is worth ;)
I would be happy if you download it... obviously, hahaha

Heyy! I would have told you if I knew ! :)

You should show me that particle engine of yours. Sounds pretty interesting.

Anyway, I'll check out your update later. With the bandwidth here, it would take about 2 weeks to download that xD.Ok maybe more like 2 hours, but still. When I get home I'll take a look.

Anyway keep up the updates!

It sounds more than it is (for now). I'll send you a Private Message on July 31st, because I'm flying to the Spacecamp in Huntsville, Alabama tomorrow and I don't have time anymore.
It's so sad that the damn bug destroyed my whole timing ;(
Neither I can finish a short demo, nor I can finish the game...

But it's not the end :D

Anyway keep up the updates!


Jea, I will, 'till it's finished :D

By the way, what happens with this thread after the pageant ends? Will it be deleted or moved to another board? Can I use it for further updates?

it would take about 2 weeks to download that


I'm still working on a solution, which reduces the 11MB to nearly 3 or 4 MB.

Thanks! Can't wait to check how that particle gen works.

Oh I DL'ed the game. The animations work pretty nice. It just looks kind of funky when you run down or up lol.
It's really smooth running from one edge of the map to the other.

I love how you put the HP bars in.

One problem is that there are no bounds. You can walk off the cliff! lol. But I'm sure that isn't too difficult to fix. (I hope)

Gosh you go traveling alot!from Australia to Paris to Alabama in a few months, you're probably used to the epic jet lagg. That's awesome.

Anyway have fun,
