i'll update the demo day wiki page so it's clearer, and so the current plans are formalized, give me a few tho

Yes, but are we making the thread at a certain time that day? Midnight? Noon? 2 pm?

Cooper Martinez
Cooper Martinez

are we making the thread at a certain time that day
not sure on the exact timing due to time zones.
Concerning the relative time I'm assuming midnight on 11/11.
Though, it's going to be sort of "off the cuff" this time in terms of timing as I'm sure a lot of anons are in different time zones.
On another note, someone needs to contact mark about the possibility of a separate thread…. due to the possibility of our cyclical not being at page 13/700 posts… so not sure there as I don't have twitter.

Seems more like you'd get an undeclared variable exception during compilation, but maybe I'm nitpicking?

Lincoln Reed
Lincoln Reed

You have to be clinically retarded to mess up pointers. That said, pointers are very bad for performance. That also includes references, offsets, and all the other shit that makes CPU fetch data from arbitrary locations in RAM.

Jayden Brown
Jayden Brown

Still getting the hang of Aseprite on my laptop, but I broke my main texture I was using into 5 different images (floor, object, block, actor, effect), and made a pretty nifty debug thing that toggles flags on F1-F8, and builds up one big string with newlines and has the appearance of collapsing away when I disable shit

Austin Morgan
Austin Morgan

No you declare a pointer that points to 0x00000000, writing to it obviously will trigger segfault.

Isaac Bennett
Isaac Bennett

The first variable says *ptr, the second variable says *prt. The compiler wouldn't complain about that?

It has been a long time since I've done anything with C++ so maybe I'm wrong there, but it seems to me the compiler should complain about a variable being used when it hasn't been declared earlier, before you even get anywhere near any possible runtime errors.

Carson Allen

Which tileset do you guys think looks better? I think the one on the left is more visually appealing, but I was really hoping for a more detailed style.

I'll make actual progress soon, I swear.

left looks better

Joseph Morris
Joseph Morris

It was meant to be C code. Pic related is the entire thing that causes a Segfault, compiled using gcc.
You aren't entirely wrong, if foo() wasn't used and those two lines were placed inside main you do get an undeclared variable exception.

Parker Turner
Parker Turner

See if you can improve it, but definitely the left one seems better. It has implied detail (with the faded splotches on the grass), and doesn't look as busy as the one on the right.

Who was that one user that was making an actiony LoZ-like game with great spritework? See what they do and try to copy it.

Asher Green
Asher Green

Why the fuck would you write that? What you think was gonna happen? Pointer needs to point somewhere, and you didn't gave it address of allocated memory, just some random value.

Sebastian Flores
Sebastian Flores


int memory[ 128 ];
int * stackptr = &memory;
int * heapptr = malloc ( sizeof ( int ) * 128 );

Ayden Gray
Ayden Gray

Actually in the first example you don't need the "address" operator, "memory" is already a pointer. But if it wasn't an array and just a single int, then that's what you do.

Cameron Rodriguez
Cameron Rodriguez

I was trying to cause a segmentation fault to show that the code in would cause a segmentation fault.

Sebastian Rivera

I was actually looking more at Superstar Saga for inspiration. Aethyr's graphics are a little too busy for my tastes.

Jonathan Thomas
Jonathan Thomas

The one on the left looks better, and I'd say that the one on the right has too much detail. Reminds me of the swamp texture in zelda II.

Nolan Thomas

Duh. Writing to an unmapped memory location is how OS detects a segfault.

Eli James

Your contrast is fucked in both of them.

Lincoln Torres

I guess I'm going with the one on the left, but do you have any suggestions for fixing it? I'm trying to stick to a specific palette.

Leo Long
Leo Long

I'm butting in but I'm trying to learn pointers.

#include <stdio.h>

int main(int argc, char* argv[])
{
int i = 0;

int *intPtr = &i;

printf("%d\n",*intPtr);

return 0;
}

Why do I need to declare a type for the pointer? like int *etc? Isn't it just a memory address? Or is it for the size of the address? what's going on here exactly?

I would imagine it like this

0x0000 (this one happens to be an int)
0x0001 (this one happens to be a char)
0x0002…etc

the ptr should just point to 0x0001 and not care if it's technically an int or not.

Jacob James
Jacob James

Not positive, but my guess would be that you need to declare a type for a pointer so that when you dereference that pointer the compiler knows what data type to return it as.

Like, if you declared a char pointer and an int pointer to the same address, and then dereferenced them both, you would get a char and an int of the data in that memory address.

BUT THAT'S JUST A THEORY

Brody Bailey
Brody Bailey

Pointer is just an address. The type of pointer tells compiler what type of data resides by that address (more importantly, its size). And yes it doesn't cares if the data is actually what you say it is.

double foo = 3.14159;
int * bar = &foo;
printf ( "%d\n", *bar );
;

Mason Powell

You can use pointers as any type you want with casting, and in some cases it's useful, but it mostly means you can fuck things up. They're declared this way to make it less likely you'll fuck up.

The middle one's colors are the best out of these three. Also, on the border between grass and dirt it's very hard to make out (at least for me) whether grass is over the dirt or dirt over the grass. Remove the shadow from the bottom to make grass seem more elevated. Something like pic rel.

No the inferno rifle doesn't launch skeletons. I was just fucking around.
What it really does is vent different levels of fireballs depending on how hot the gun is running.

Stage 1 of the vent does a basic spreadgun shot of the normal fireballs, nothing fancy, but hey, the vent doesn't cost ammo.
Stage 2 shoots bigger fireballs that have splash damage and hit harder
and Stage 3 launches far bigger fireballs that hit like freight trains and leaves fire all over the goddamn place
The weapon passively generates heat as well, even when holstered. So you could theoretically never fire the gun and use the vent attacks only, but it'd take a long ass time to build up to a level 3 vent.

It usually is actually faster to copy values and use them from a single point than reference to them with pointers.

trying to think of ideas for fun gameplay
3D game, have been developing game engine and it's finally ready for gameplay prototyping
Already have a cute girl modeled that's going to be the player character, altho…Well, the clothes are just a prototype, and the hair I'm going to need to re-work. Face and body looks nice tho.
Thinking a 1P action-adventure game would be good
Thinking I'll make the setting some sort of dream world or virtual world or something so that anything goes, ought to make production of the game a fair bit easier than other concepts that have stricter production requirements

OK, so action-adventure…Exploration, combat, and some platforming?
For platforming, since it's a dream world, different gravity in different areas might be interesting

Well, as far as making a prototype goes…Probably combat would be a good place to start?
OK, pick a weapon…Fists? Feet? Katana? Scythe? Pistol? Sniper Rifle?

Enemies?
Some sort of shadow-human-thing?
But the exact design…What to do…
Bosses?

….
…..
I wish I was more creative.
I wish I had a stronger vision for a good game.
I wish I could actually do good character design in a timely manner.
I wish I had a better idea of what to do in terms of (concept/game/etc.) design to turn this engine into a fun game prototype.
You wish this wasn't a blogpost.

All of this engineering and 3D modeling/rigging/animation experience is going to go to waste at this rate.
Maybe what I need is an ideasguy or drawfag or something to compensate for my lack of creativity, I don't know.
Or maybe I just need to trial-and-error, making random and/or weird shit and it'll work out somehow.

I guess for now I'll eat some dinner and sleep on it…
Maybe I'll do the katana, since I have a really good idea for the name of the sword that can also be used as the seed for an interesting design (although I'm doubtful how interesting my weapon design can get as I have only been focused on character design and modeling up to this point. Game design is the study of everything.)

Charles Wilson

Maybe try not getting too focused on details, like what specific weapons your character uses. Start with broad strokes for everything and refine it later.

I wish…
Those are all things you can practice, even creativity. It doesn't come naturally, despite what most people would tell you.
Also, don't be afraid to be derivative. True originality almost never exists these days, it's the combination of different influences that makes something interesting. A lot of games (especially indies) start out as clones of other games. Even basing a character off someone is fair game, as long as you change it up enough.

Isaiah Taylor
Isaiah Taylor

focus on one thing at a time, but make sure you don't get stuck.
if it's something you can change later just pick something and roll with it. i've changed my protagonist's design 5 times and gone through 12 different weapons before finally getting it the way i want.
it sucks, but if you don't have any ideas or can't decide it's hard to force stuff like that, and it'll eventually come to you later on.

Right I'm going crazy over this fucking linker error. Maybe this is not the best place for matters like this but I'll give it a shot in the hope that someone here has some valuable comments.

privatebin.net/?ee0eaa0691e06797#2wJp0RAT7gnQ/VRCCDE7 ZiGf3NAPApPj99n8a3xvz4=

I stripped the paste back to the bare essentials, I hope I didn't miss anything important.
As far as I can tell I'm following a pretty normal pattern of forward declarations and minimizing includes, which normally works fine. It's unrelated to external dependencies (so 99% of fucking stackoverflow results are irrelevant). I triple checked the definitions for typo's and namespace mismatches, pretty fucking sure it's all good unless I have gone retarded I am living in a fictional reality inside of my head.

linker errors are some of the worst errors cause they don't tell whats wrong at all
Like the error is probably not really related to the actual problem at all
You should be using #pragma once for header files that way you don't need to worry so much about double including
also you should be including stuff in header files not source files
the only thing included in the source should be the accompanying header file and nothing else
in general if you are making small classes you start with just the header file and only add a cpp file if you need it
other than that the code you wrote is just a huge mess
In general using forward declarations is a sign of bad code structure and you are using a lot of them
It seems to me like there are a lot of unnecessary classes and files and could be simplified a lot

So I made a pretty good stride in improving the "feel" of my visuals today. I finally figured out a good way to render at a low resolution and upscale using Unity. So no more rixels when I rotate, objects scale down to the pixel level, and overall things will look a LOT better now.

The only thing, is that I made my placeholder UI elements(health bars/fonts/etc) a little too big, so I need to scale them down so they dont get all blurry and ugly.

Parker Brooks

You forgot to put a namespace around everything in remote_client.cpp. (You used "using namespace", which is wrong.)

Caleb Powell
Caleb Powell

linker errors are some of the worst errors cause they don't tell whats wrong at all
Like the error is probably not really related to the actual problem at all
I mostly agree, I do think they're usually related but they tend to be uninformative and only point you in a very general direction.

You should be using #pragma once for header files that way you don't need to worry so much about double including
Sorry for the confusion. I am using them, I just left them out of the paste without thinking about the confusion that might cause.

you should be including stuff in header files not source files
Yeah have fun waiting for you compiler to finish. I mean, I suppose it's a subjective thing, but in my experience it's very standard (among professionals) to leave them out of the headers as much as possible because they will make compilation longer and bloat up the namespaces. If you're going to use some module, you don't care about what specific shit that module internally uses, and you don't want to expose what you don't need. You only care about the module itself, so it absolutely makes sense to me that whatever shit the module uses will be included in its implementation, not its header, when possible.

only add a cpp file if you need it
I've learned to do the opposite: add a cpp for every header, even if you don't 'need' it. This is so you know compile time if your header is not able to compile by itself. If you're going to include it, you want to be sure the header itself is enough. Of course, if the header has forward declarations you will still need to include their definitions seperately: but only if you are going to actually use them.

It seems to me like there are a lot of unnecessary classes and files and could be simplified a lot
Right, I think what I've said above applies here too, and keep in mind I stripped back a lot of the context, and tried to only present what is giving me the problem.
If you disagree with anything I've said, I'd be happy to hear your thoughts though.

They're all c++ functions as part of classes, I don't think extern is relevant here.

I left them out because they don't seem relevant here. (Even if I didn't have them, the compiler would generate default constructors though)

Again sorry for any confusion caused by stripping out so much of the context surrounding the snippets, there's quite a lot of code surrounding this actually but I am pretty certain none of it would influence the linker errors (inb4 this is where my mistake lies), because supposedly it's simply "I can't find the implementation for this function!", however I do have a function with that signature. The declaration is obviously found because it compiles, it just somehow doesn't link properly.

That would be true if you were talking about a header, but it's the .cpp, where you literally use a namespace.
In the header, I do surround my declarations with the namespace.

Benjamin Gutierrez

Kayden Sanchez

Thanks! Do you think it would be worth it to add in some sort of CRT-type shader as an option for people to use? I know some people hate that stuff but I also know some people who like the original, real-life look of these older games as they were played and would rather have that. I've not tried working with custom shaders in Unity though so it'd be a learning process.

Adrian Walker
Adrian Walker

If it's an option you can turn on and off, and you really want to add it, I don't see a reason why not to.

Thomas Stewart
Thomas Stewart

(Me)
I forgot to mention that it seems directly related to the Connection class (in combination with RemoteClient), because any RemoteClient functions that do not have Connection* as return type or parameter have no problem linking.
This shit's bizarre. I was never the greatest at structuring code, but I suppose I'll have to try to simplify things and work around it.

Julian Phillips
Julian Phillips

It's kinda hard to judge with how much you left out but it wouldn't really surprise if the bug was outside the code regardless
you are right about it being preference but i've found that avoiding cpp files and avoiding forward declarations in particular helps prevent these kind of linker errors
with what you've provided here it's nearly impossible to figure out why exactly it's giving you this error
Also wheres the compile command?

Adrian Lee
Adrian Lee

Good lord, I found it!

I another header file I forwarrd declared Connection inside of a parater because in that whole file it was only used once, and I was lazy:

namespace network {
void likeThisExample(class Connection* connection)
};

Well, that lazy mistake declared a class named Connection outside the namespace network. What was intended:

namespace network {
class Connection;
void likeThisExample(Connection* connection)
};

James Campbell

Right now i am making a horrorgame walking simulator and i need some advice. Normally a game like that starts off by making you walk around without any actual enemy encounters happening to build the atmosphere for like 15 minutes, but i had the idea to blast an enemy into the face of the player within the first minute when he is absolutely not expecting it. Is that cold bucket of water a good idea or would that prevent building the atmosphere?

Oliver Morris

Gabriel Gomez

I planned it to be more or less like this:
Player "starts" in a certain room
Needs to pick up a weapon like a metal pipe to break open door
Breaks open door
Goes into next room
Just when he is about to open the second door, an enemy blast it open and attacks player
Now the player is forced to fight or run, leaving the player with an unexpected crisis. It's meant to make the player feel overwhelmed from the very start.

Easton Adams
Easton Adams

The first Deadspace did something similar. You encounter the enemies within like 5 minutes iirc, and it puts you in a situation where you have no weapons and are forced to run. It worked well imo, but you HAVE to cascade properly after it. Let the realization of the situation after that encounter dawn organically. They failed with this in the sequels if you ask me.

Leo Roberts

people still mistake demoralization for depletion of morale, not depletion of morals, which it actually is.

You're right, completely forgot about the beginning of deadspace thanks. Good to know that there is at least one instance where it worked well, so i am not treating on completely unknown territory.

Hope everything is ok, user.
Please, for the love of everything holy, do not force a CRT filter on your customers. Having grown up with the real deal, they always look like shit to me, I prefer to have them off. I wish I had never sold my last, big, awesome Sony "flatscreen" CRT
Is that cold bucket of water a good idea or would that prevent building the atmosphere?
If it occurs within, literally, the first minute of gameplay, it better be core to your game experience. Is blasting enemies into the players face going to be a consistent theme in your game? If it occurs once, very early on, and there is no frame/context/meaning to it, then it would not build atmosphere.
That sounds good to me.

Is anyone going to object or care at all if I post progress on learning to draw here? I'm doing it specifically for gamedev, though I understand that it's not really video games itself. I figure it's at least as AGDG-related as learning to make music is.

Jayden Morris

I don't see a problem with it, but I do remember an user that drew lewd of his game or a nude character or something to that effect, and ended up making the thread really low quality because he kept being belligerant towards criticism, and also lightly spamming

That shouldn't be an issue. I ask for code help here all the time. I'd rather be criticized in the short term than not improve in the long term.
Those are good places overall, but they're dead enough that I don't think I'd get sufficient feedback there in any timely manner. The Holla Forums draw thread is similarly dead. In addition, I think to prioritize AGDG because it's full of people with the same goals as me, who are going to criticize my work with attaining those goals in mind, when it's relevant.
only post art progress related to gamedev on some level.
I have mixed opinions on that. On one hand, this thread should be about video games, but on the other hand, that same line of logic also rules out all beginner level 3D modeling, music making, writing, and even programming that isn't intended to go into a particular game, even though it's a necessary step to get to gamedev. A large number of the people in this thread are here specifically because they aren't yet good enough to make the things that will go in their game.

I would handle it imagining a moving base some powerful entity encapsulating the map slowly while also projecting smaller parts of it on the map which produce various creatures in which the player has to deal with.

being able to fight the monsters doesn't remove from the horror aspect of it unless it's dealt with poorly

There's a difference between the "horror" genre and something actually being "scary". Horror doesn't always imply frightening in the classic sense, it refers more to the themes imo.

Chase Mitchell

is it themes or is it atmosphere though? because I've seen plenty of games have various "spooky" horrorish styles to them but they're clearly not a horror game but on the other hand I've been unnerved by alot of stupid shit just because it had the right atmosphere to it

How the heck do shaders work?
If I want diffuse lighting and stencil shadows, can I do them separately or do I have to make one shader that does both? So far it sounds like I do one pass with a shader that renders to a depth buffer on an FBO, and then another pass using a shader that does my normal diffuse lighting but also checks the depth buffer. So I couldn't just make a bunch of graphic effects and just turn them on and off?
Can someone pretty please hold my hand and teach me how to gamedev

Disagree strongly, if Half-Life was an actual horror game it would be extremely scary but as it is now it's not at all unless you're a ten year old in 1998 playing it for the first time.

This is what you need:

For shadow mapping using the depth buffer:
learnopengl.com/#!Advanced-Lighting/Shadows/Shadow-Mapping

Unfortunately, I'm not too familiar with resources for stencil-buffer or volumetric shadows off the top of my head.

Jose Perez
Jose Perez

the volumetric shadow part is basically just occlusion culling, but instead you use the lights dir vector to determine what the shape is occluding; then it's just fancy interpolation of the resulting values.
So the term would be, "shadow frustum", is what you're looking for.
Look here for a stepping off point:

How iconic would you say Mario's Pivot Jump (running in one direction, pointint the stick in the opposite direction, and then jumping backwards) is?

I've got a bunch of shit planned and working for my game, but this is my all time favorite movement from all the 3D Marios, is it bad just taking it as it is?
Should I tweak it?
Should I just leave it be and find something else?

Matthew Morris

Take it if it fits, its just all around intuitive. There is a reason everyone tried(and also failed) to imitate Marios physics in gemeral since the first one came out. It's really good.

Nathan Cruz
Nathan Cruz

In Kirby Super Star, there's a Yo-Yo ability.
If you press down, then up, then B, you do this move where you spin up in the air.

The input is not unique to Mario. I would think the resulting somersault action is pretty unique to 3D Mario, though…

Christian Price
Christian Price

I think it might be worth trying to get something that works similarly without copying it straight away, I'd still like to do something during my Pivoting animation though, it's a nice interaction and it feels empty to just leave it as it is

Just a random 32-bit signed integer number written in hexadecimal format.

That's perfect. It's what the compiler should do. It's an implicit cast, but you can write it out too if you want. It's handy way of pulling out bytes from a 32 or 64 bit integer. This stuff actually reads better written in assembly. One of the reasons C is kind of a bummer for some things.

assembly on a modern Intel is some real bullshit though. Some of the opcodes aren't even documented. BIOS/firmware is a half-mile deep shithole of broken glass. One of the reasons I'm really interested in the Power9 stuff coming out now.

I hear ya, but it can also be a legal one so it's worth paying attention to. FWIW i still think youre fine to use it do long as you arent just straight up copying animations and overall game design. Referencing and derivative types of work are cool and I see them more as homages/paying respect than anything. Just my opinion.

Juan Butler

while you are at it, on the Input tab check the emulate 3 button mouse box and use it

on the Theme tab change the theme to one with proper contrast like north, modo or science lab
on the File tab check the show thumbnails box

Didn't know this existed, my life is now way easier.
as a thank you let me tell you that you can copypaste from different blender windows, is way faster than using the append menu, pretty useful to build/use huge libraries once the demo day is over i will start working on a gun parts library

Graphicsgale is okay but it lacks some vital tools that will seriously speed up your workflow esp on larger sprites like multiple dither pattern gradients. The plus side to it is that it's free of any kinds of full retard comments by the dev to my knowledge.

Yes, do it as a respectful derivative rather than straight and lazy copying. You can feel the difference, somehow.

I'm extremely paranoid about pirating software. Seen way too many friends fuck up their PCs downloading shit they thought was clean. Last time I tried pirating something was Adobe CS6 Master Collection and all the comments said it was clean, but to be safe I installed it on a laptop with a fresh install of Windows that was 100% expendable and sure enough I immediately spot that it's running some shit in the background. A couple of websites running Cloudflare or some shit immediately recognized that I had become one with the botnet and blocked access from my IP.

Also I'd feel like a dick trying to make money off models made in pirated software. I just want Blender to have good spline cage modeling, then everything would be fine.

Thanks for the tip, never heard of them before but I love private trackers for sure. If I do pirate something it will probably just be some version of 3DS Max. In the early days of college they still made you pay for their limited student version but at "only" about $500 or something, it wasn't until later they made student versions truly free, so I figure pirating their stuff would just be getting what I already paid for.

"The ESRB has a fee for rating games and that fee depends on how much the game cost to develop. If the game cost more than $250,000 dollars the fee would be $4,000 dollars, if the cost of development was less than $250,000 dollars the fee would be $800."
The amount you're billed is scaled to the amount of money you have, not the amount of work we put in.
This kind of thing always irks me.
Pertinent content that is not playable (i.e., "locked out") but will exist in the game code on the final game disc must also be disclosed.

Physical copies in stores or if you want to do a console release.

Christopher Wood

I noticed something with a script I made like last month.
Basically to move on slopes without weird shit happening I take my Movement Vector (the Green one that starts from the head) and Cross it two times with the normal of the slope under him.

This works, however I just noticed that it makes my actual movement vector shorter, cutting my speed into about half. This works fine for when he's walking uphill, however the speed is also cut when he's going downhill.

How would you fix this?

Angel Harris

I seem to recall a voice actor or something who was in a walking simulator that was underaged and some shit about a nude model being ripped

Benjamin Torres
Benjamin Torres

Could you not just get the angle between your vector and the slope, then shift your vector by that amount. Then you can freely apply manipulations to the speed based off the type of slope he's on. IE you could have some tags for your slopes that apply all kimds of fun and weird shit to movement.

But if you just wanted to change speed, my first thought is 1. get the slope between the horizontal forward vector of the char and the surface under him. 2. If it's positive apply some decrease in speed scaling with the slope. If its negative(ie facing down) apply a positive increase based on the steepness if the angle.
There may be more to it but that's a nice and simple process.

Aaron Hughes

Back to the grindstone after a few days of feeling like shit. Got transparency support in walls and fixed some annoying bugs.

Vector projection so the excess is added onto the new vector.

Isaiah Campbell

Normalize the red vector, then multiply it with the length of the green one, or if you want him to move faster downhill multiply it by green's length + the difference in their lengths, maybe with the difference multiplied with a value between 0 and 1.

Vector projection so the excess is added onto the new vector.
That wouldn't improve things much, pic related

I tried using
docs.unity3d.com/ScriptReference/Quaternion.AngleAxis.html

That can happen if you have your eyes focused on one depth for too long, aka staring at a screen for hours on end. The easiest way to combat this is to just look around at something else every so often to refocus your eyes. Talking breaks and having proper lighting also help.

Is there a simple workaround to stop an SDL window from freezing when it's being dragged on Windows?

Isaiah Diaz
Isaiah Diaz

So I have a kinematic body (the player), and I want the body to be able to swing from a rope, which is made of several rigidbodies and spring joints. The player can grab the end of the rope via a pin joint, but the player is still affected by gravity and will pull the rope until it breaks. One potential workaround I've tried is disabling gravity on the player when attached to the rope, but that messes up the feel of the movement and isn't how I like to code, given that it's simply patching up an edge case instead of finding a solution. Any ideas on how to achieve something like this?

I think that's the default behavior of Windows; but I'm not entirely sure because I dev on linux w/ sfml. Anyway, there's probably a loop somewhere in your code that processes events that happen in the window, try writing something to the effect of:

while (window.isOpen()) {
Event event;
while (window.pollEvent(event)) {
if (event == WINDOW_CHANGED_SIZE || WINDOW_DRAGGED)
window.display()
}
}

Stay up too late, so that you feel exhausted and restless when you go to sleep
Next day feel tired, go to bed at a decent time so you can catch up, maybe a little thirsty
2am~5am
Hear the slightest noise and stir on the border of consciousness and feel my eyes move with the lids closed
In some particular orientation, they end up scratched from that eye crust or whatever that builds up while you sleep
Wake up in pain, eyes watering and fucking sore, just enough time to pop some tylenol or eye drops and get a wet washcloth before it becomes fucking awful
If I'm lucky it'll only last a few hours and I can sleep it off and don't have to take a day off work

I have no fucking idea what the deal is with that. It happens every month or two and the last time I visited a hospital for it, they said they could keep me for observation. Take care of your eyes, they're important.

Ethan Sanders

so, how is one supposed to animate attacks? i was planing on just animating part of the upper body and running on top of the regular movement of the character. particularly the legs. having a primary attack and a secondary attack for each weapon class with a "chain" attack on the primary. going from: rest, weapon ready, swing, alt weapon ready, alt swing, skipping to weapon ready….(showing the loop)

is this a acceptable setup? how hard would it be to implement in game?

Yeah it's still WIP, since they'll appear on the UI and not as gameplay elements, so it's low priority. I did make a bunch of faces I can slap onto them, though. The tongue would be an "accessory" that would override the mouth style.

Not keeping it nearby at the gym so you can detail the perfectly structured plot point that you figured out while in the middle of a set.

Just a reminder that more devs probably use Twitter than Tumblr. One of the popular dev tags on Twitter is #ScreenshotSaturday, which is both tomorrow and demo day. In fact, Feb's 2/2 demo day falls on a Friday, which means you can publish your game to anons, get some feedback, then shill to normalfags.

Take a shower
Brilliant idea
Remember how i forgot my last idea while i was showering a while ago
Step out of the shower instantly
Run through the apartment naked
Cousin who was over for a beer asks "`What the fuck?"
I scream "THERE IS NO TIME IT'S NEARLY GONE"
Already about to forget it
Find my smartphone
Manage to write it down last second
Cousin comes in with a gun thinking i lost my shit because of a burglar or something
Thinks i am calling the cops because of the phone i am holding
"WHERE IS HE?!" he asks
Calm him down and explain how I became the prince of a town called Bel Air

Generally speaking melee attack animations look awful unless they take the whole body into account. It's a much better idea to make animations that use the entire body- make attack animations for standing still, make attack animations for moving forward, sideways, etc. Almost every game out there does something like this for melee attacks. Typically being able to move completely freely while attacking creates this "lawnmower" effect which just feels awful to play (eg: Twilight Princess). Some games do it well though, like Ruiner.

Watch embed related and a few of the related videos to get a good idea of how people actually move when swingan weapons around in reality.

William Peterson

Your loop setup sounds good, but like the other anons said you should animate the entire body. Animations are a pain. I've realized that even after quite a bit of polish and iteration my animations suck ass, while being absolutely integral to the game feeling any good at all. I think you either have to have the drive and motivation to get good as an animator or to outsource it somehow if you want really good animations

thx, i really don't know what i should do i want combat to be fun and solid but i don't have a real plan for it other than melee

Brody Martin

In fighting games, combat tends to be based around a rock-paper-scissors triangle: attack-beats-grabs-beats-shields-beats-attacks.

Looking at 3D games with combat such as Zelda, however, you'll find they throw out grabbing (probably due to the camera angle).
Thus the shield tends to make you invincible in these games.

So how did they make the combat interesting in 3D Zelda when you can just press a button to become invincible indefinitely?
One thing they did was make enemies put up a shield of their own when not attacking. The enemies thus became invincible for periods of time, giving the feeling of combat/trading blows for most players who just started spamming the sword button whenever they encountered an enemy.
However, while this design method gives the feeling of complex combat initially…
Upon closer examination as a seasoned gamer, it all boils down to a simple strategy of "wait, attack".
(See youtube.com/watch?v=XOC3vixnj_0 at 8:03, I'm usually not a fan of goofy videos like these but this particular video is a good analysis, the whole video might give you some good ideas regarding action-adventure gameplay in general)

It also may be worth considering that fighting games univerally adopted projectiles at a certain point in their history, as this allowed fighters to continue to interact with each other at a distance. See embed related.

Finally, I think the best combat you'll see in games is combat that focuses on player movement.
Say, you start swinging your sword, and the sword swing lasts 60 frames and…You can't do ANYTHING else that whole time? You might want to think about speeding up certain animations so that player input doesn't get discarded nearly as often.

Not much of a progress pic, but I spent most of today (several hours) completely gutting my placeholder code in some areas and reworking it into a more structured framework.

Basically I made a manager object hold instances of a particular type (indexed by name, position, and id) and a "blueprint" which contains an instance plus some meta deta. Client code just tells the manager to Create(type, position) and it handles the rest.

Pic related is mass spawning 1,200 short animation objects that draw an image and then disappear afterwards. Maybe 1% impact on my CPU and spamming the command for a few seconds only cost a few hundred KB of memory that got recycled

Is there any advantage to disabling backface culling? I noticed a lot of games do it. Blender doesn't let me make double sided faces without duplicating a vertex (making it really messy and akward to deal with), and I can see this becoming a MASSIVE problem when shit like trees come up. I get the feeling disabling backfacing all together is overkill though.

If you want attacks during movement, I'd set it up like I remember the Ys games around Ys Origin do it - use fast, spammable attacks that stop you during startup, move you a step or two while you swing and recover pretty quickly if you don't take another swing/cancel into another swing if you attack again.

Frankly I think you should just drop the blocking part and just have attacks and movement, so the main part of the gameplay is just using your basic movement options and maybe a bit of foresight to dodge attacks and hit during recovery and/or just place a good preemptive attack to stick the monster before it even gets to attack. Dashes or runs should probably also feature because they just feel good, just have to be careful to balance them or to balance the game around them, depending on how fast you want to make the game.

Have you tried out to make the dmg number just float up from where they appeared instead of having them parented to the character? As of now it looks pretty weird and stiff and if you'd ever add an enemy that quickly changes direction (ex. runs in zigzags) or teleports it could look like they have a 'number pillar' attached to them.

How will skills be organized? Are you planning a skill tree or something else?

Elijah Baker
Elijah Baker

Have you tried out to make the dmg number just float up from where they appeared instead of having them parented to the character?

Tried that, didn't like it back then but perhaps it can be implemented better, like making the number disappear faster. Should be easy enough to do.
The enemy movement point is pretty compelling…

How will skills be organized? Are you planning a skill tree or something else?
The spells will be categorized, with things like auras, weapon skills, projectiles, summoning skills etc being separate tabs in the "spellbook". Some skills will require the character reaching a certain level to unlock.

The idea is to have little restrictions on playstyle.

my workflow is to use a single base mesh that's skinned and model or simulate clothes on top of it, then rig and copy the weight from the base mesh to the clothing and manually touch up the skinning if necessary.
can you use Blender cloth physics on Unity?
not to my knowledge, but unity has a cloth system that works with skinned meshes if you really want cloth physics.

Note that I've never used MMD models, but I've heard about them in passing; they'll probably have some odd rigging, and will be textured (delete rigging and remove textures, do that yourself).
The idea here is just to get a base for u so it's easier to model… so get a model with the basic contours of the body you want (not necessarily naked).
Retopo the model with a shrinkwrap modifier (look at topology section on wiki for guide) while maintaining good deformation topology for joints, and then customize it as necessary with shape keys; then do your own rig + texturing.

Xavier Bennett
Xavier Bennett

I'll probably have to delete the textures but the rigging does seem to kind of work so I might just keep it since I'd have no idea how to make it over myself.

Leo Anderson
Leo Anderson

I might just keep it since I'd have no idea how to make it over myself
well… like it or not if you're making a game you'll need to learn how to rig, weight paint, and deal with at least IK.
Also, if you end up redoing the rig later, and have animations from the previous rig; you'll more than likely have to redo those animations with the new rig.

Can't seem to select the single bones to move them though, weird
the mesh needs an armature modifier w/the rig assigned to be moved by the bones, and you need to have the rig selected in object mode to be able to move them in edit mode.
look at rigging tuts on the wiki….

Changed the skateboard physics, and added some sound effects that are totally not stolen from Tony Hawk.
