Topic: Game Programming / Suggest a game!

Are you suggesting somebody else than me, to rip off my game and make a sequel for it without even asking me?

Also, Stick Hero Idle 4 was about 60% developed once, but never made it further.

Topic: Game Programming / Problems with dynamic tile based light projecting!

Yeah, new day, new mood. I indeed am casting it from the upper left corner, and i tried to adjust it with the -/15 in Math.round((H.y15)/30), but i didn’t realize it still rounds it to 30s.

Also figured a way to stop the light passing the corners.

Case closed, thanks XD

Topic: Game Programming / Problems with dynamic tile based light projecting!

Ok so i am making this small rogue like game, where iv’e made dynamic lighting.
Here’s the light demo so far.

It seems to work fine, but after a closer look theres 2 flaws i can’t manage to solve.

The light is asymmetrical. When you’re next to left or top wall, the light only effects the 2 wall tiles, while on right and bottom side walls it works fine.
Here’s an image of it!

The light passes corners, as seen in this image.

How it works?

// 60 rays are cast from the player, each lighting up the next 8 tiles on it’s path. If a solid tile is encountered, the tile is lighted and the loop is breaked

for (var ray:int=0; ray<60; ray++) {
for (var dis:int=0; dis<8+light; dis++) {
// light-variable only applies an additional effect, ignore it.

var xt:int=Math.round((H.x-15)/30)Math.cos((ray*6)(Math.PI/180))dis;
var yt:int=Math.round((H.y)/30)

if ( target tile is within bounds ) {

apply shading on target tile

if ( target tile is solid ) {



Pre-tag seems to be on a bad mood, so here’s Pastebin version!

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Vorp!] OPS Ideas

Erm, charge on OPS is the time between use and action. For example Deport has a charge of 3 seconds (green clock icon).

Deportal: show up in last moment, but you have to be in the portal more than halfway of your ship.

Bots: They have an undefined seek time, mayby 5 secs. Yes they will hop onto next injured targets once done healing, but the total healing time remains 10sec.

Nuke: The measurement unit in the game is meters, figure this one out yourself. (This was clearly stated in developer’s blog after i asked them about it)

Telemine: Use your brains will ya? Spawntime is the duration they spawn, after which they disappear if not exploded. Attraction area is not defined, you have to figure it out ingame, just like most OPS and loadouts have undefined stats.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Vorp!] OPS Ideas

Here’s some new OPS ideas popping up in my head.

Deportal Charge: 4, Cooldown: 240
Drop a portal that deports up to four allies after 4 seconds.

The size of the portal balances it out, as only four ships can fit in it fully enough to teleport (halfway+).

Repair Bots Charge: Na, Cooldown: 180
Launches three repair bots that seek onto nearest injured ally and heals it for 300 per bot, over 10 seconds. Double effect on structures.

New focus-able healing OPS, that also brings the long waited ability to heal structures.

EMP Nuke Charge: 2, Cooldown: 180
Unleashes a super strong electro-magnetic pulse that stuns all enemies within 150 meters for 0.5 seconds, and completely shuts down their radars for 20 seconds.

I know, this encourages backdooring :P

Telemine Charge: Na, Cooldown: 90, Spawntime: 220s
A strongly magnetic mine that is quickly attracted to nearby enemies, exploding upon impact dealing 150 damage and triggering a deport(3sec) on the enemy. Triple damage on drones and structures since they cannot deport.

Anti backdoor!

I wish i won a million or two, so i could buy Vorp and get a good team to work on it.
Or just donate it to EndGames…

Topic: Cloudstone / Epic Arena [Suggestion]

Epic Arena

What is it?:
Epic Arena is a new rare event that is triggered when you use the Epic Key, received from Epic Chests at 1% rate. Epic Key sells for 15000g, incase you don’t want to try your skills in the Epic Arena.

When you use the key, you are teleported to an arena, where there are 6 epic chests in circular formation, and one in the middle. The 6 chests are locked, but once you try to open the 7th chest in the middle, it transforms into:

Epic Golem

Epic Golem is a miniboss made of an epic chest, and coins. It carries a massive coinblade

The Battle

Epic Golem is immobile(until 3rd phase), and only attacks you when you get too close(this attack is almost always deadly!!!). It only switches it’s position between the chests when it morphs between chest and Golem form. Whenever the Golem morphs into a chest, it releases a spirit orb that dashes from chest to another until it stops at one. Pay attention to the orb, as you need to open the chest which it entered. Wrong chests will only explode on you before closing, dealing high damage. When you open the right chest, the Golem reappears and knocks you back to the edge of the arena.

Phase 1, 50%> HP
The Golem summons Epic Pyrites at steady, slow rate, which are bigger and super strong versions of normal Pyrites. The golem morphs every 30 to 60 seconds.
The Golem has a shield that resists 75% of damage taken.

Phase 2, <50% HP
The Golem begins to cast Coin Pillars at you, which deals moderate damage and may stun for 1 second. Coin Pillar is similiar to Raider’s crystal attack, but a lot faster and harder to avoid.
The Golem also morphs slightly more often.
The shield resistance increases to 90%

Phase 3, <20% HP
The Golem stops summoning Epic Pyrites and Coin Pillars, and takes a part in the battle itself. The Golem begins to slowly move towards you, and uses long-reach sword attacks along with a very large area attack that may stun for 0.5 secs. It’s attacks charge up for 1 second, and 2s for area attack, giving you time to avoid them if you pay attention.
The shield is no longer in use.

How to fight it??

There are 4 corrupted altars at the edge of the arena. You can lure a bunch of Epic Pyrites around the altar, and blast the altar off, corrupting all the pyrites. Corrupted pyrites will attack their master and ignore it’s shield.

The Golem’s shield can be temporarily broken by killing the shield generators at the arena corners. The generators will regenerate in 15 seconds. It is recommended to use corrupted pyrites alongside this if you’re melee class, to draw the Golem’s attacks away from you.
