1  Discussions / Miscellaneous Topics / Re: What I wrote today on: 2016-12-20 21:17:22
@ GJallar

I do somewhere. On a really toxic tumblr I used to own. Here's another one of my pieces from when I got thrown in the psych ward in the middle of creating Tetradecagon. The first line of the poem is also the title, the left-right align is also part of the piece.

her presence is a demon...

…and she is trapped inside
and she will take control

for she has no authority

because the creator of her demon

is despite her painful scars

it can be escaped once

and overpowered

and broken at it’s bloody seams

for in its rainforest it finds little prey

because she has none like

everyone’s perfect demon

she who is not pleased

and it wont conform to her wishes

and it wont change to fit her

for surely it will change

because when the clock strikes twelve

she will turn off the lights

What I drew wrote today yesterday. ( i love writing poems c: )

Google Docs


I can see what’s true.
And it’s haunting.
Bleeding black purple and blue.
A realization before me.
And I want to feel it too.

Can we have some specs on these different computers? (OS, GPU, driver version etc) It may be a fault of drivers, software, or hardware. (I have personally dealt with those in my own game.)

I'm not clear what is going on with LWJGL-based game engines right now. A version 3.0 has been created, but the game engines (Libgdx, JMonkeyEngine, Flash) seem to be sticking with 2.9.2 or whatever the last version 2 is.

I would like to put out there libgdx has a lwjgl3 backend.

thank you loves for making my dreams come true <3

PS: Can a moderator move this to the appropriate board (this game is a finished product)

Not using PNG, DDS, or XMI images

Wait, hold up. Are you implying the problem lies in the fact shadowstryker isn't using, god forbid!, your file format! I thought that was a joke and should die, no?

perhaps you should just stop, maybe listen to advice? you would be embraced if you weren't such a butthole.

OP moved the thread, so I guess this one's over. take a hint hydroque. you've basically proven you don't read what others have to say. that only says that you think you and your "knowledge" is worth more than every one else on here.

i find it sad you manage to derail every topic you post in

Do you plan on making a language as part of the XM series of file formats? The world needs your knowledge, Hydroque.  persecutioncomplex

Hello printer,

Could you please provide more information? Perhaps what you would like it to look like. That's pretty little to go off on and I have a hard time understanding what's wrong (seems as if the code is producing the expected result)

> I don't care about what you all think

Isn't this kind of a self fulfilling paradoxical prophecy? If you didn't care what we think then every post you make wouldn't be a counterargument, let alone be on a forum.

Just do you bro, why argue every post? If someone says something, you probably should take it into consideration. Maybe not. Screw it. It's your code. Teamwork may make the dream work but hell you don't need the team. The only two things you have to do is die and pay taxes (hell you don't even have to do the latter.)


Cool engine. !(I will) take into consideration for my next project.

Started the recode/redesign of Tetradecagon's menu.

NINJA EDIT: width parameter doesnt seem to work with gifs, so i changed it to hyperlink Pointing
28  Discussions / Miscellaneous Topics / Re: What I did today on: 2016-06-20 00:16:47
"Invented" a new "colorspace" I call HVP (Hue, Value, Pitch). It's less of a colorspace than it is a linear representation of Tetradecagon's color scheme. Basically I decided to use Universal Tween Engine instead of the haphazard spaghetti fx code I had and I needed a linear way to represent Tetradecagon's colors. Basically it works like this:

base color = backgrounds, polygon color = side/highlighted side color

Hue is as expected.
Value is the HSV saturation and value of the base color, and the HSV saturation of the side color, multiplied by the pitch
Pitch is used to multiply by the value, but it is also the side color's HSV value.

This allows me to easily fade in and fade out from black; fade from different hues; simulate "rainbows" fairly easily; and go what I call "black and white mode" (used for harder levels) fairly easy with Tween.

Also, in the past week ive removed 1000s of lines of repetition and made Tetradecagon much easier to follow and program, there is still a lot of work to be done on the optimization/bug fixing/code polishing front though.

Lastly I switched from LibGDX's builtin OpenAL implementation to paulscode. It work's great for my needs and I recommend it if anyone runs into problems with LibGDX's sound management like I did (Libgdx lacks a few features I wanted to polish the sfx with that I otherwise had to hack in with Tween and just in general)

I've been rewriting a fair portion of Tetradecagon. The code was getting super messy and was starting to turn into a spaghetti dinner mess. I've eliminated hundreds of lines of code while keeping it functional and much easier to read / follow. Along with that, I am reworking the game menu. I added a splash screen before the menu and a loading screen at the beginning instead of a blank screen.

Just bumping this thread so it doesn't expire. The game is well under way and I am looking for some Steam beta testers (maybe 5 or so?) email me at, PM me, or just reply if your so entitled (as if I am not acting so)

As part of obvious feedback, I am adding more gameplay elements to spice things up. I am going to implement some different "game modes" without mutilating the game mechanics I have. I am also doing a full redesign and recode of the menu. Lastly, I have added controller support so you can use the DPAD and the A/B buttons on any Xbox/ps3/ps4/generic controller in place of a keyboard and mouse. I thought if I am going to sell this game for money (thinking 2-3 dollars) than I mise well give it my best.  Smiley

ill continue to update here. I just got out of the hospital so development has been slow for the past month. I plan on having all features implemented in a few weeks.

TLDR: working hard on this, bumping thread, nothing important.
