Maybe I will have something ready for next year's jam.

This is annual now?

Nice demo. It was pretty smooth but felt a slow. The rotation was a bit too slow for my taste and I thought the scorpions should spawn a little more progressively. Also, when you shoot, I notice a small red line behind the gun.

PS: what is that on the player's head?

As the year ended I realized my full potential (because of tafsj). I wish to show my ability and polish a different kind of game. Every time I started a project and got into it, someone on JGO had already created it and better.

How about the arena is an enneagon with a player on each point. Each player chooses their attack and when their all ready they attack whichever player they choose in order of the speed stat. If you want teams, I suggest coloring one part of the enneagon red (for the red team) , another part blue (for the blue team) , and the last part green (the green team). I drew a small diagram for it:

Because there can only be one. But if you find any reason why you choose one over the other, go ahead. Whatever get's the job done.

Nice work! Are you programming it with c++, Java, or..?

I know it is highly frowned upon, but he told me had development knowledge with Bukkit, so I figured he would know all the do's and dont's of testing plugins (I think he still does, although I quickly found out he doesn't have much development knowledge)
[ /offtopic]
Wasn't development on Bukkit canceled after the 1.8.0 update?

Maybe after January 1st or on the same day, one thing I ask is to give 10 days time for each JAM, we can get more quality games done in my opinion.
I personally think the 7 days are okay because it spices up your Monday a bit, but some people may be busy with some other things during the week so 8 - 10 days seems reasonable. That also changes the due date each week.

I'm dropping out. Not because I don't want to finish, but because I would rather be with friends and family than sit by my computer all day programming.

I may even go outside, if I can remember the way out.
I sold all my friends in family for a new intel processor months ago. It actually increases my productivity.

For Christmas, I got my first mechanical keyboard (A DAS Model S Professional). Very clicky, and very fun Cheesy.
I also got a Galaxy S5, switching from a long line of Iphones. I rooted it as soon as I got it, and I am absolutely loving it!

Any suggestions for what I should do with it (geek-wise)?

If you like playing old games, you can download emulators on to it and download ROMs/ISOs from coolrom (doesn't require root).

On new Years.

Finished the hellish core tile classes that load tile maps from small image files and converts each pixel into a tile. Time to sleep, it's Christmas (well, if 12:00 am counts)!

16  Game Development / Newbie & Debugging Questions / Re: Libgdx Rotate a sprite 90 degress on: 2014-12-24 18:33:01
In the render method
1  
2  
3  
float rot = 0;
if(rot<90) {rot++;}
sprite.setRotation(Math.toDegrees(rot));
17  Game Development / Newbie & Debugging Questions / Re: [LibGdx] Sprite rotation with mouse on: 2014-12-24 07:25:46
I wasn't drawing the sprite correctly. I was using batch.draw() instead of sprite.draw(batch).
18  Game Development / Newbie & Debugging Questions / [SOLVED] Sprite rotation with mouse on: 2014-12-24 06:59:08
I think I have the code for it after using:
1  
2  
3  
4  
5  
6  
7  
void mouseMove() {
      float angle = (float) Math.atan2(562 - Gdx.input.getY() - p.getY(), Gdx.input.getX() - p.getX());
       
       angle = (float) Math.toDegrees(angle);
         
       player.setRotation(angle);
   }

In this code the player is the sprite. I noticed, without using mouse based rotation, regular rotation doesn't work. Why wont my sprite rotate?

If only I could finish my current project by the end of December. Cheesy

... Maybe December.. 2015
A little side project wouldn't hurt.  Grin Don't you need some breaks from RPC?

Are you looking for a game to play or learn from? If you're trying to learn, I recommend GitHub. It has available source code in any language you please.  Cool

26  Game Development / Newbie & Debugging Questions / Re: [LibGdx] Problem with tile collision on: 2014-12-22 22:52:02
I guess the player was too big for the tile. It works.
27  Game Development / Newbie & Debugging Questions / [LibGdx] Problem with tile collision on: 2014-12-22 21:50:25
Here's the code:
1  
2  
3  
4  
5  
6  
7  
8  
try{
            TiledMapTileLayer layer=(TiledMapTileLayer) map.getLayers().get(0);
            if (layer.getCell((int)p.getX(), (int)p.getY()).getTile().getProperties().containsKey("a"))
            {
               System.out.println("COLLISION!");
            }
            } catch(Exception e) {System.out.println("error coliding"); e.printStackTrace();}
           

When the player touches a tile with the property "a" nothing happens most of the time. If you go to a certain position near the tile it may print "COLLISION!". When I clear out all the tiles and cover the whole map with a grass tile that has no property, it does the weirdest thing. if your x is < than 0 or > 99 it points the exception to the if statement. same for the y axis. I have no kind of method that should stop the player from going past 100 x and y. What do I do to convert the player's position to a tile coordinate?

Well... because this one was done from scratch and the last one already had alot of talk about how horrible it was I thought it would've been better to create a new topic...

Don't get bothered by any criticism that may seem harsh. Your tech demo looks great based off of what I've seen.
29  Game Development / Networking & Multiplayer / Re: Books on Multiplayer Games? on: 2014-12-22 01:40:46
You should take a look at Kyronet. As far as books; you can get pretty much any by searching it's PDF, 4Shared, and pretty much any good Java book. Looks like The Pirate Bay is gone.
