  • At first, I was going to put player objectives on the screen labeling it as "Helpful voices"... But that's dumb, I have a madness system. It will simply whisper objectives.... I mean they're probably objectives. The voices wouldn't lie right? They're friendly, and ...helpful. So clearly you should do what they say. Just watch the dark corners of your screen for advice and it will all work out! :LZSexcite:
    Testing out applying a stroke effect to things at player level to increase visibility. Thoughts?

    Yeah that does help with clarity and it also looks really nifty. Cool project you've got going here!

    Thanks! The effect of them popping out is really growing on me in testing. Also if you're interest, my latest video showing the game in action is....


    Since it was a couple of days ago, it doesn't showcase the stroke effect. But I think it helps showcase why I'd want one. :LZSwink:

    I fixed the tree shadows to not have the stroke effect, and increased it a bit. Now stuff is visible even in full madness! :LZSexcite:

    Considering a side project of making a Choose Your Own Adventure in MV but letting people play it as YouTube videos with the choices at the end leading to other videos. Thoughts?

    As in a series of videos you create that are connected by the viewer's private choices? It would be awesome, if you knew people would participate.

    Time will tell, I put my first video up 10 days ago and my channel has 322 views already. And I've been having a blast messing with it, so worse comes to worse even if nothing comes of it... I had fun on the way. Really this is like super profile posts! :LZSexcite:
    Well, looks like I need to build myself a quest system. Or really just a system for "Helpful voices" to talk to the player. I'm sure nothing will go wrong listening to them.... They're "helpful". :LZSwink:

    Should be pretty easy with PIXI just letting me write all over the screen. :LZSexcite:
    Yay! One of my Youtube videos got to 100 views (in 2 days)! This Youtube thing is great, it's like the profile posts except I get to annoy entertain more people at once! Now I just have to practice my "Leave a like and hit that Subscribe button" shilling technique. :LZSexcite:
    Alright guys, I decided to be nice and let you use my instant map creator plugin entirely for free! :LZSexcite:

    Oh who am I kidding? I basically enjoy every portion of game development. Even ironically mapping. I super want to make a game using QMovement + Collision maps. It won't work for my current project as images have to be designed first. But imagine a map where you just create any image you want, and the white area is automatically passable. And the rest of the image isn't, to pixel accuracy! :o

    Sooo good... :wub

    Spending the day reworking my maps, especially the first "biome". This time it's not even in the dark. :LZSwink:

    I should probably add that's randomly generated for those not in the know. It's not like I'd willing do regular mapping. That's like work and stuff. :LZSskeptic:
    Made a brief video showcasing early game play... Got a copyright claim by BIG UP! (https://big-up.style/) for using music I bought from here (Future Steam Punk Pack). Now I wonder if I should strip any purchased music from here out of my game. :LZSskeptic:

    Yeah, it's definitely a bad time in Youtube's history to start uploading videos. But the others have so little traffic, it seems like it would be impossible to get started on something like *****ute. This is why I'm starting early in production. I figure by the time I finally do release a game, hopefully I have enough of a audience that someone cares. Definitely no dreams of "phat Youtube stackz" though. :LZSwink:

    I'm not saying it's impossible just that it is going to take a lot more work than someone would have had to in the recent past. As with the Copyright Strike, I took a look at ours and we ended up winning by default because Konami failed to reply in the 30-days they were given. So more than likely the same will happen with you or it gets taken care of quicker so just hang in there ^^

    Thanks, yeah I suspect these people don't fight claims. It's probably just the algorithm doing what it's told. Still Degica is looking into it. So hopefully in the future, at least music bought from here will be safe.
    Ha ha! I seem to have suckered convinced my step brother to join our cult happy little RM family. :LZSexcite: One of us! One of us! Er... um *whispers* any of you guys have extra shoes for him? I've already got the hat covered. :LZSwink:
    Helper posts are like the mutual fund of the Reaction Score game, over time people find them, read them and occasionally like them. So it's not that I'm being nice by helping people, I'm just investing in my future Reaction Score wealth! :LZSexcite:

    Yep, if you don't look after yourself, no one else will in the reaction score world. Here in the profile posts we live and die by the reaction score meta. :LZScool:

    I would say I'm getting real work done... But I'm actually just running around my Dev Room pretending like I'm productive! :LZSexcite:

    I'm actually running a stress test of sorts, there are 61 light sources, with 2-8 animations playing every second. And a whole lot of PIXI objects, most of which are being updated every frame. Hit the occasional moment of lag.... Good thing the actual game doesn't require anywhere near as much.
    Day 3 of using the Coronavirus as an excuse to ignore people.

    Found a new hat in the wasteland, and empty theater. I put the hat on, sat at the empty theater and imagined someone sitting behind me suffering. Felt good. On the way I collected bottle caps, I will probably drop them on the ground in front of the beggars. Life is great! :LZSexcite:

Hi-Yo! When you just started learning to program, you tend to discover new strange keywords along the way. Is it better to keep learning how to use every new keyword you found OR just leave it until you need it(probably)?
:kaodes:
So I decided the best way to represent insanity was to simply make two maps fight for supremacy in front of the player. The results are everything I hoped for! :LZSexcite:


Ami
