I tried that, it doesn't look that good especially combined with the motion blur, do you have any other ideas?

Instead of just saying that it doesn't look good, why not post a picture of what it looks like?

I think you have a broader problem in that the image you posted is very noisy. You've got a lot of stuff going on: what are those brown blocks? What are those blue rocky looking blocks? What are the trees? What is that yellow thing? What are those skulls and red thing?

So it's hard to tell what's what: what can I walk on? What hurts me? What's just background?

Another thing that adds noise is that you've got a bunch of different art styles going on: it looks like one person drew the background, one person drew the character, one person drew the tiles, one person drew the trees, etc. If I had to guess, I'd say that you probably just downloaded these from different sites. (Hopefully you're planning on giving credit and/or money where appropriate.) Having a more uniform art style might help you out quite a bit.

My advice would be to try to simplify: use a simpler background, have fewer things on the screen at one time, try to use the same art style (and within that art style, you could then use different types of art to help categorize game items).

Keep it simple.

Hey you are right, I am sorry, I edited the comment, and also edited the thread with some really cool updated backgrounds.

I also tried to make it simpler, as you can see in the last 2 pictures I added to the thread post, let me know what do you think.

If anyone interested in playing, you can download the game completely for free here -, I know it's a multiplayer game, don't worry I personally take care of the servers  Wink

Add blur to the background.

Depth of field is realistic.

I tried that, unfortunately it doesn't look good combined with the motion blur  Cry
I will try to play with the motion blur a bit more meanwhile, and perhaps find a stable amount, do you guys have any other ideas? Smiley
4  Game Development / Game Play & Game Design / The background and the tiles are indistinguishable on: 2015-10-15 00:51:38
What's going on game developers?

Here is an image of the background implemented in the game.
Here is just the background

In the game that I work on, the background and the map tiles are pretty indistinguishable for new players, probably because they have similar colors and theme.
Are there any tips and tricks to make the background more like a background and be distinguishable from the map tiles?

The game has motion blur which kinda helps, when the player is running the background gets blurry therefore making it more distinguishable from the map tiles.
However, that is clearly not enough.

Any suggestions, tips or tricks will be greatly appreciated!

Hey developers! I did over 15+ variations of this background already, and here are some of them:

(darker and way more blurry)
(dawn colors and some blur)
(one of the coolest things I've done + blur)
(one of the coolest things combined with dawn colors + blur)

I managed to find one that fits perfectly, you can download the game for free over here, I know it's a multiplayer game, don't worry I personally take care of the servers Wink
5  Game Development / Newbie & Debugging Questions / Kryonet registering and serializing methods isn't efficient? on: 2015-09-07 04:10:32
After talking to some people, it made me wonder, when we pass an objects with methods to Kryonet to serialize, do the methods get serialized as well? and if they are wouldn't it be more efficient to just pass the data(primitive variables) for Kryonet to serialize without any overhead methods?

Sorry if this is a silly question, the OCD strikes hard when it does.

A new large update for Brutal Fighters + New Map and more!

Vote Brutal Fighters on Greenlight!

What's going on fighters!
First of all, I recommend reading the update on my development blog, because everything will be essentially a copy paste from there, and the blog contains a higher quality images.

But enough about that, let’s talk about the update!

I will post the main features below, but feel free to also check out my Github for the source and the commits.

So let’s get into the main features!

  • COMPLETELY NEW MAP: A new map, more tactical, more fun and more challenging, now it’s simply impossible to just run away with the flag!
  • NEW BLOCK TYPE: I call it a “level” block, you can collide it only from the top, which makes the game a whole lot more tactic!
  • BETTER MULTIPLAYER: Many players were surprised how smooth the game was at high latency(420ms), now it’s twice as smooth! Awesome isn’t it?
  • MORE SOUND EFFECTS: A bunch of new blocks were added with the new map, therefore new sound effects were also added!
  • MORE PARTICLES: More particles to make the new map feel more alive, and fun!

Sounds awesome isn’t it?!

Let’s do it!

I know I promised a controller support, but new map was a higher priority and the most requested.
But hey, that’s the plan for the upcoming update:

  • REWORKED COMBAT: You can use most of the skills while holding the flag, mid air, while jumping, running, walking, whenever you want! smooth combat is a win!
  • CONTROLLER SUPPORT: I really want to make it happen, and I will!

Vote Brutal Fighters on Greenlight!

Let me know what do you think.

I couldn't find a match, but the game looks really good, seriously guys give them a try it's really a well developed game!
I like the cheesy lines at the matchmaking, it's funny cause I did the same thing with Brutal Fighters, not sure if you got the idea from me though Grin

I am going to try to find a match again later, it's the same with Brutal Fighters, I could pull off only around 2-3 matches daily, now I am trying to gather more followers, and do a proper release so the initial players would be enough for the game to survive until more join.

Anyway I wish you luck! it looks really promising guys Smiley
8  Games Center / WIP games, tools & toy projects / Re: Brutal Fighters - Available for Free!! on: 2015-08-05 01:09:37

Sorry, I have probably missed something obvious but where is the download link? I haven't found it on your main website.

Oh I need to update the thread, I redirected the download link to the steam greenlight link, essentially my goal is to gather some followers to the game, then release it so multiple people will join at once, that way you won't need to wait for a match.
9  Games Center / WIP games, tools & toy projects / Re: Brutal Fighters - Available for Free!! on: 2015-08-04 03:54:54
Hi Fighters!
Some people suggested me to submit Brutal Fighters to Steam Greenlight, I know I am late, but better late than never Smiley

It's completely free, no in-game transactions, no ads, completely free + open source, and I personally take care of the servers too, so I really don't get anything from it(sadly some people think I do and love to show hate), just to hopefully let people join and enjoy the game.

If you like the concept, please vote and share, I am not really into "marketing", I am just a java game developer, so if you like it please vote and share, I would really appreciate it! Smiley

I had a game with my brother and it worked well!
The dust effect was cool, made lag look less.
The game ran flawlessly, no errors or jittery-ness. Technically the game is very impressive, but my brother had some suggested improvements about the game play which might be worth looking into:
-Should be able to shoot while jumping or walking, currently the player seems to be able to shoot only when standing still.
-Doing basic attacks while standing right on top of one another seems to not affect the enemy. This means that players having a fist fight move closer until they're on top of each other then no damage seems to be done.
-Not being able to fight when holding the flag is frustrating, particularly when there's 2 people playing and both have each others' flag!
-Needs bots.
-Level ups, items, commentator who announces triple kill bonuses and so on.

Nice job all round.

Thank you a lot for trying the game! I am glad it ran flawlessly, without errors or jittery-ness! Smiley
It makes me really happy to hear that you and your brother gave it a go!

About the suggestions:
1. I am pretty limited to the sprites, but you are right, it's definitely time to work something out in that regard, aren't we indie game developers after all? Grin
2. Easy fix! the auto-attack hitbox X position should not include the flip side, thanks a bunch for telling me!
3. I can easily enable fighting while holding the flag, but in my opinion, in any case except 1vs1 scenario, enabling it will be a bad design choice. when it's disabled it encourages team work, the player who's holding the flag is very vulnerable as he cannot defend himself, the team has to defend him from enemy attacks, in a funny scenario when both teams have stolen each other's flag, players got to be creative, otherwise it's a 1vs1, then it's frustrating, I will look into that, perhaps I will enable fighting while holding the flag only when it's a 1vs1 situation.
4. Will look into that, although it's not my highest priority to be honest, because developing a good convincing A.I is really hard.
5. Haha when I read this, I thought to myself - "someday..someday.." Cool

Thank you for the suggestions, I am really happy that it worked well for you!
Hopefully you all enjoyed Smiley

What's going on fighters?!
A new crazy update is released for Brutal Fighters!

Make sure to re-download the game at!

I will post the features below, but feel free to also check out my Github for the source and the commits.

So let's get into the main features!
  • NEW GAME MODE: Freestyle, it's basically one infinite match where players can join and leave spontaneously, when populated it's chaos. NO QUEUE!
  • BACK BUTTONS: Now you can return to the main menu from everywhere, the queue, fighters select, everywhere, just click on the Brutal Fighters logo.
  • TUTORIAL AND DEBUG MODE: Hold 'O' to see the tutorial, hold 'P' to see how much FPS you have and some more details.
  • BETTER NETWORKING: Now the game connects to the server when the game logo shows up, and a bunch of more improvements.
  • MORE FLEXIBILITY: Especially in the server, new game modes can now be added fairly easy, and much more!
  • IMPROVED OVERALL CODE: As usual! performance improvements, refactoring, etc.. etc..

Sounds awesome isn't it?!

Upcoming updates:
  • CONTROLLER SUPPORT: Brutal Fighters is a 2D side scroller fighting game, playing it with a controller would be too much fun!

Let me know what do you think.
Hopefully you will enjoy the new update!

P.S >> You can always follow me and the game on my development blog, I actually pasted everything from there!

I tried playing it but couldn't find a match in half an hour.
I think you should make an indicator showing the amount of online players, this way we know if it's worth waiting lol.

Guys I just checked the logs from the server, and it's funny, yesterday pretty much all day different people tried to search for a match, but not concurrently, it could have been at least 6 potential matches.
Any ideas? maybe I will add an option to play against bots, but that also may ruin the multiplayer experience..

EDIT: Currently for a match you need 6 players, to play 3vs3, I am thinking to drop it to 4 players per match, so it will be 2vs2 and will be less time to wait, what do you think?

Thanks for the tip, the indicator will be included it in the next update!
Not too many concurrent active players in the game currently, therefore finding a match is rather difficult, amm hopefully doesn't sound too extreme but I would suggest planning a time in advance when everyone will queue into matchmaking in the game, then we can play a couple of matches together, and write a report here, who's in? Wink

Hi, the loading screen is much better. But I've been waiting for players for a while and it seems that nobody's online.
Perhaps you could have a lobby or show some information about how many players are online, or put some bots in so that a game can begin straight away.
This weekend I'll give the game a go with my brothers and a friend and I'll report back how the game went.

EDIT: Also, there's no back button once the loading screen is encountered. I had to alt-tab and kill the game by right-clicking the icon and closing.

Thanks for the tips!
The game requires 6 players to start, because it's a 3vs3 game, but you can always fire up multiple clients on one computer.
I am very happy to hear you are going to give the game a go with your brothers and friends over this weekend, hopefully everyone will like it, I am looking forward for an update Smiley

I managed to start a match yesterday after waiting for about 15 minutes, we had one AFK, but overall the game was smooth and fun, now it seems nobody is online, as I was in queue for quite a while.

I will definitely add a back button very soon! It will probably be the logo of the game Grin

Fighters! hopefully you don't mind me calling you that, that's the spirit Grin
A new update was released for the game, be sure to re-download it as it doesn't support auto update currently.

The new update features:
  • An improved version of the Matchmaking Screen, now you can read cheesy funny phrases while waiting for the game to find players to match with you.
  • The update also includes an idea CommanderKeith suggested me, client sided dust particle effect when the client is pressing a button to move, which is a great way to reduce lag notice.
  • A Multi-Kill notification was created from scratch and added into the game, it's totally awesome!
  • And finally a few bug fixes and other improvements and refactors as always..(currently there aren't any known bugs in the game!).

More details about the update can be found in my blog post here(I post regularly about updates), or directly through the source on my Github here.

Wow, that takes courage to develop a game this far and put it on github as open source and for everyone to download and play for free  Smiley But why am I your first twitter follower?? Downloading game right now and will try it out!

You are awesome man! thank you for the kind words and the following on twitter and github.
Your game project - Asteroid Fight, looks awesome, I registered on the main game site, waiting for updates! Wink

Edit: The lag was only between when I pressed the controls and saw a reaction on the screen. There was no stuttering or anything else. By the way, one easy way to trick the player into thinking that there's smaller lag than there is, is to make a little dust or smoke graphic at the player's feet when he presses a key to move, which is instantaneous and gives the player feedback and distracts while the actual movement eventually starts.

Thanks! I don't even know why I didn't implemented it before, because the particle effects are ran on the client and so are the inputs, this idea will work really well, thanks for suggesting, that's my first priority now.
17  Games Center / WIP games, tools & toy projects / Re: Brutal Fighters - 2D Competitive Action Game on: 2015-07-17 16:30:03
Nice job making a release!
I played and managed to steal a flag, died to a blue dude, then I killed him a few times. I think the enemy and allied players were AI since they weren't very pro-active in killing me back.
The graphics, window, menu and sounds all worked flawlessly.
I was playing from Australia and though i did notice a lag of about 200 - 500ms, it was still very playable which is impressive.

Some things that you might consider improving:
-Implement a loading screen after choosing a character. I actually thought the game hung when all I could see was the game logo for about 3 minutes. It was only after I tried running the game on the CMD prompt to post the error for you that I heard sound effects and noticed that the game actually loaded.
-More obvious tips about the controls. I had no idea how to fight until I died and it showed the keys.
-The arrow key controls work well, they never jammed. But it is a little frustrating that you can't seem to attack while jumping or moving.
-LAN play option

I really appreciate it, thank you for playing!

I have played 3 matches in total, the first one was a set of 6 real players, they were seriously playing good, after a good fight my team lost 3-2.

After a while I couldn't find anyone(hence the logo in the middle of the screen), so I launched a few other clients and queued them up, then suddenly we had enough to start a match, so it was me combined with 3 clients and you probably, I've played only with one client thus the afks Grin There isn't any AI in the game at all.

1. Everyone thinks it was a loading screen *facepalm*, it's the matchmaking system, it searches for other players, you waited for 3 minutes because the system couldn't find another 5 players who are searching for a match too.
The game loads most of the resources during the warmup phase, which is occurring when the match is about to start, there is a 20 seconds warmup, it also shows all the controls for 20 sec like a mini tutorial.

2. The game shows all the controls during the warmup phase for 20 seconds, you probably missed it, it looks like the death/respawn phase, just for 20 seconds.

3. I definitely need to add dash attacks and such, few characters are able to attack while moving, Lust for example, he can do a jump attack. I am pretty limited to only a few sprites, and I am not an artist, but I am trying my best, thanks for the tip!

4. Sounds like a good idea, it's not my first priority but I looking forward into implementing this.

Again thanks for everyone who were playing! I am still in queue..

P.S >> Who were the first 5 players I played with?
18  Games Center / WIP games, tools & toy projects / Re: Brutal Fighters - 2D Competitive Action Game on: 2015-07-17 14:54:35
I updated the thread, the game is available now for free! and it's a great fun! feel free to download it really takes a second,
and queue up for matchmaking.
Not so many players playing the game currently so matchmaking may take a few minutes.
Although you can always just ALT+TAB the game if you wish and come back when the match is just about to begin(warmup phase).

No game guide currently, the controls will be displayed at every match warmup, like a mini tutorial, it's really pretty straightforward, take it as a challenge Grin

All right, I am always in queue, see you out there fighters!

Note: The server is in San Francisco, which means players outside NA may experience delay between inputs, but my friends told me it's not that bad, when(if) the game will get more popular, I will definitely set up another VPS game server for Europe and maybe even another one for Asia.

If you wish to support the game, there is a donation link at the bottom of the main site.
If you really want to show support, please contribute to the game's Github repositories, it will be even better than a donation, everything will be appreciated though Smiley

Please comment! Wink

Cool, I'm looking forward to giving it a go! Multiplayer games are the best.

A few questions about your multiplayer implementation:
1. Do the clients' simulations run some milliseconds behind the server or do they all run concurrently with the server but the clients do "dead reckoning" to simulate where the game state would be assuming nothing has changed.
2. When a new packet arrives which shows an enemy player did a mouse click and a change in direction, do the other clients 'teleport' the enemy player to his new position instantly or do you smooth the transition?
3. How do you stop the clients' game worlds becoming out of sync with the server? Does the server send the whole world every few frames?
Sorry for the detailed questions. No need for detailed answers.
I'm always interested in how multiplayer code works under the hood. I find it one of the hardest and most interesting things.

I appreciate the questions, and discussing about how multiplayer works under the hood is always helpful.

1. I suppose the clients do "dead reckoning" although it's a bit more than just extrapolation and updating the players position using their velocity and direction, clients also calculate collision detection and such, so the clients won't be "extrapolated" into a wall for instance.

2. Good question, thanks to a good client prediction, this rarely happens, although flickering is starting around 220ms latency, which in most competitive games is a death sentence anyway.
However, if a client is experiencing a bad lag spike, the other players in his screen are teleported, I suppose in a competitive game, players want to recover as fast as possible from a lag spike, transition and "lerping" may take too long compared to teleporting. Please correct me if I am wrong Smiley

3. By the whole world you mean all players info? Then yeah, the server sends all players info every few frames in the client, the client always extrapolate all players and sync accordingly after each server packet.

I agree, multiplayer it's one of the most interesting things in game development!
I hope it's clear, let me know if you got more questions or something is not clear.

But seriously, this looks really fun Smiley great work!

Haha thank you man! Smiley
21  Games Center / WIP games, tools & toy projects / Re: Brutal Fighters - 2D Competitive Action Game on: 2015-06-21 20:47:24
Looks great on the videos. The graphics are bright and have a nice softness.
I'm not a fan of mortal-combat street fighter type games but this one looks interesting.
For noobs like me, maybe you could make the combos executable with on-screen buttons with icons so they can all be seen.
How did you implement the multiplayer code?
Thanks a bunch! The graphics are somehow a bit more brighter in the videos actually.

Haha do not worry, I am not a fan of Mortal CKombat style either, this game is about strategy, capture the enemy flag and bring it to your base, using teamwork, dodging enemy skills and unleashing tons of damage while defending your flag. Not similar to Mortal Kombat actually, which lacks teamwork, in fact there aren't any teams at all.. Smiley

Regarding making HUD for the skills, yep it's right on my to-do list, and I even have already a basic concept of it ready.
Combos are not possible to show on the HUD, you probably meant skills, combos are a set of skills and actions that dish the most amount of damage in the least amount of time, combos are planned ahead, and are trained because executing them requires great timing, and fast decision making.

How did I implement the multiplayer code? (did you mean the netcode or the actual server code?)
Well that will take pages to explain, but briefly I have a matchmaking system implemented, similar to League of Legends, Dota 2, or CSGO..
Each match runs in the server completely, all the collision detection, velocity calculations, everything runs and calculated in the server, the client gets information(in the form of UDP Packets) and interpolates what will happens next till the next packet set of information.
I tested it with a pretty low amount of people, but it showed no lag or netcode problems nonetheless.

It looks really cool, I think you're using the assets from Little Fighter 2, right?
And no, I am not using the assets from Little Fighter 2 directly, I use sprites that the community of Little Fighter 2 created, I asked the moderator, and he said if I attribute those sprites to the community site, then it's ok to use them. And I did on my main game site.

24  Game Development / Newbie & Debugging Questions / Re: LibGDX and Scene2d - simple menu issue on: 2015-04-17 00:13:39
It's a table, so it'll align to rows and columns. If you want it centered, try colspan() to make a cell extend horizontally.

I will try it now, sounds like the answer!
Yeah I just figured out it's a table :0
I guess that's what happening when you binge a programming session on your game haha Smiley
25  Game Development / Newbie & Debugging Questions / LibGDX and Scene2d - simple menu issue on: 2015-04-16 02:23:11
I am using LibGDX and Scene2D to create a simple menu for my game.<br />
Here is a simple example that works for me:


I didn't include the irrelevant code(including the table into the stage for example).<br/>

If I don't include `.row()` to each object that I add to the table, then the menu isn't aligning to the center, which is very odd, for example:


Why is the menu behaving like that? should I use more `Tables` or add some `HorizontalGroups` perhaps?

If you need any additional information, or images I can provide, although it does the same for even the simplest menu implemention possible with LibGDX and Scene2d.
26  Discussions / Business and Project Management Discussions / Brutal Fighters || Let's build a team! on: 2015-02-04 10:14:15
What's going on indie developers?

I am developing and working on a project for quite a while, the name is Brutal Fighters.
Check some screenshots here -

All right so what is Brutal Fighters?
Brutal Fighters is a multiplayer 2D fighting game, expected to be competitive, and probably the most popular mod will be capture the flag.
At the start of every match you will choose a fighter(currently there is only one as I don't have any artists whatsoever), and then 2 teams will fight against each other, trying to catch the flag and bring it to their base. this is the main idea at the moment but it might change.

With what the game is developed?
The game is developed with Java, LibGDX, Kryonet, some GLSL for shaders and Tiled. that's all basically.

So is the game almost ready?
YES. the game has fully implemented multiplayer, with a real hosted linux server, fully functional matchmaking, game launcher, main menu, settings menu, full skill system, fast paced smooth combat, no lag even with 200ms ping, and much more. just look at the screenshots.

So what is left to do?
Well I am not much of an artist, so I need someone to make sprites, some fighters, map tiled blocks(look screenshots), backgrounds, and that's basically all for now.

I am the only one working on this project at the moment, and I need more people to join the team, especially artists/pixel-artists, but everyone is welcome.

It's not a paid job, but when the game is going to be released, which is going to hit Alpha after we'll have some sprites, and backgrounds, we might sell the game and share income.

So if you want to join, write a comment below.
Thanks and see you out there indie developers.

make a check and see if it is on last frame?

public void doingAnimation(){

   if(frames == 5){
       animation = false;

   //make an int to plus or something



btw just trying to help Smiley hope you get it

There must be more effective way to achieve this..
28  Game Development / Newbie & Debugging Questions / Libgdx Death animation on: 2014-08-04 12:23:29
Hello, I want to make death animation for my character.

Here is a basic example -
stateTime +=;          
currentFrame = deathAnimation.getKeyFrame(stateTime, true);  
spriteBatch.draw(currentFrame, 50, 50);            

So the problem is that the character is looping the animation over and over again.
and I want it to do the animation and stay on the last frame(which is when the character lays on the ground) instead of looping it.

Any ideas?

well we would assume that files are found since 2 are playing, and there are no errors, however fileNotFound would be the goto problem.
next problem could be the format: make sure they all have the same format or at least a format that works. however why that wouldnt work in a jar but from the project itself, I'm not sure

Sorry didn't see your reply, well all the files are the exact same format (wav), and they almost all identical. but for some reason only 2 worked, but see my previous comment for the fix.

I found the problem, I needed to extract the sound folder from the jar and place it near the jar. now it plays all the sounds.
I really don't get it, gonna check it in advance.
