@dime26, Hello, I tried your game, its very nice for 48 hours Cheesy But on level 19 you have only 1 second to clear it, I don't understeand something? Huh

Hi, @VaTTeRGeR, I remember, I saw some interview about some VR archery game, and they said something like - you don't really have a bow in your hands, but you can feel it, when it's string is triggered Cheesy

You have limited time to complete the game, if you run out of it then you need to go back to the start and do better on some of the levels to re-claim time.

You start with I think 300 seconds and use up time on each level, only your fastest time on each level is taken from the total. I probably should have had no time limit per level but kept a total and shown which levels were done too slow.

Most of the people who come here are probably on a computer as they will be some sort of coder/ programmer / game maker. Not sure an app would be worth the effort

Entered the JS13k GameJam, not quite today but not been on here to share anything for a while!

Before moving or changing JGO it would be useful to look at what this forum is, to who and clearly state the goals.

Its ok to say software x is mobile friendly and this framework is new and exciting but will it fullfill the needs of JGO and its members? This is quite a small community and while change could bring more users in its possible if the change is managed badly then you kill it off for good.

Change has to be planned and exectued well, you want to retain the core users, add value to the site and attract new members.

If you do start fresh it would be nice to leave this intact and maybe create
* thinking about all the links already pointing here that would break, a new forum should probably use a new path to leave all old links live *

Nothing too exciting here but I am finding a little time to write code again. Here is some basic path finding, will help with the computer car movement at somepoint:

Small update to road building, placing roads now sets neighbouring tiles, sometimes these neighbour tiles are in other chunks.
Quick debug test to ensure the tiles in other chunks are found correctly to ensure pathfinding will work between chunks.

Draws an "i" to show a neighbour with out a road and draws a box to show neighbour is a road.

Bang! Our localization systems are finally finished. You can now change Robot Farm's language. Also here's a VERY WIP preview of our new title screen!

Disclaimer: I translated the menus to Spanish with Google Translate just for testing purposes, so I apologize to any Spanish speakers on here if it came out completely garbled ; )

A much better title screen, I think it was the ocean last time I saw it. Might be nice to put little emoticon flags for the languages as well as the text.

Started mapping the editor functions to buttons on the menu like the zoom+/- and debug.

Added a hashmap of entities to the Tile class so I can add multiple things/layers to each tile, starting with road co-ords and path finding start / end nodes.

Next I will add path finding between these nodes, need to dig out and refactor the AStar code I have.

If you are failing to find developers you may need to consider:

a) Raising funds and hire developers
b) Change to a platform with more active developers
c) Put the project on hold and make something simple

Putting together a rough editor so that I can start creating roads and buildings, hope to make some milestones for 2019 and make some decent progress on this project.

Next Up: Road mapping, car spawning and basic traffic (AI)

I check back quite a lot and enjoy reading the what I did today, plus the old posts are still relevant.

I am not really a fan of Discord

Little progress on my LibGDX / Box2D prototype.

  • Space Bar to break joint
  • Auto creates a new joint when car / trailer colide correctly

The car class which is inherited by all vehicles has a hitchable bool, being true allows the vehicle to pick up trailers / caravans etc.

Used some basic math last night to improve my car dust placement, when a vehicle is generated I use the middle point and one edge to calculate the radius of a circle that would surround the rectangle.

When I decide dust or smoke is to be added I can use that radius and the current angle of the car to place decals around the wheels of the car, not sure if this is the best way to do this but it works well. This also makes smoke and dust appear in the correct place of all the vehicles whose tires are at the edge of the rectangle.

I now have dust being added when the car is accelerating from a stand still and when it is skidding. Improved the skid mark placement as well:

Back to the car game Ive been tinkering with for ages, started implementing a basic engine which has a start delay when you get into a car, added some exhaust fumes and dust.

The dust takes the velocity of the car at the point of creation to add some movement to it, the dust is red while I am testing it.

My only experience is with KryoNet, I only really experimented with chunk data, movement and the direction a player was facing. I limited updates to only send 5 times per second rather than 60 which is the fixed FPS with LibGDX.

I setup an AWS free server but was soon getting charged as some testing hit the server a bit much for the free tier. The engine was simple to use but did mean writing a client and a server, the project was too big for a solo dev so I scrapped it.

Its worth trying out KroNet as it was very easy to setup and there are tutorials out there to get you started. When you start testing on a live server you are likely to get some charges.

Started learning how to make games in HTML5 / JS. I have a simple island and a box you can move about, implemented some basic collisions. Would like to make a simple browser game for Ludum Dare so have some time to learn enough before the next one.

Test game here:

Trying to do more Pixel Dailies this year, todays was black hole

Noticed this on OP:

Have not had a go at using it yet but will try it out soon, might be useful for LibGDX users?

You can view the sourve for the C&C game, really neat project. He probably should have asked for permission before using the graphics for the game that was taken down.

Can you show your render code please
25  Game Development / Newbie & Debugging Questions / Re: Make invisible body line box2d libgdx on: 2017-11-19 23:28:03
Are you using the debug renderer to draw these outlines?

You should only use the debug renderer for debugging, maybe use a key to toggle it on / off.

Finished tutorial 11, this one goes through creating a basic menu with some buttons.

I will look at saving & loading next, not sure if this "game" will ever be completed but will hopefully encourage someone to make their own game and help start them off on the right track (Or at least a track of sorts).

Another option could be to apply a new template to the site, to give it a fresh look?

Probably loads available out there:

I am happy to test the migration script.

Seems migrating to phpbb first night be the best option
