Don’t worry about 3D it doesn’t sell as much as it seems, here’s a possible winner https://vine.co/v/OJ3edX6lZmq

Topic: Game Programming / [FD][AS3] Substitute for fl.controls.List [Solved]

I found it useful to add this function to the List class since sometimes you’d update the value of an item and it’d not update

public function update():void {
    invalidate();
    makeListItems();
    fillItems();
}

Overriding the toString of the item you want to display on the List can be quite useful to avoid having 2 arrays

http://www.minimalcomps.com/ has a bunch of components, List is one of them. Haven’t tried skinning them yet but it seemed easy enough

Topic: Game Programming / Indies vs Pewdiepie - Game jam

Pewdiepie is hosting a 72 hour game jam on the 21st of this month, you can check it out here http://jams.gamejolt.io/indiesvspewdiepie

Although it mentions a theme there isn’t actually one, just make something fun, if it brings a laugh even better.

Rules are simple:
- You have 72 hours to make a game
- You can use any code/libraries/tools you have
- All assets must be done within the 72 hours (includes levels, graphics, sound)

Good luck to those jamming and have fun!

Topic: Game Programming / [Solved] Textfield doesn't show.

digs up really old code
Maybe any of this will help

[Embed(source = "../lib/beatmygu.ttf", fontName = "beatmygu", fontFamily = "beatmygu", embedAsCFF = "false", mimeType="application/x-font-truetype")]public var myFontClass:Class;
public var myFontFormat:TextFormat = new TextFormat();

In the constructor

myFontFormat.color = 0xFFFFFF;
myFontFormat.size = 100;
myFontFormat.font = "beatmygu";
title.embedFonts = true;
title.antiAliasType = "advanced";
title.defaultTextFormat = myFontFormat;
title.text = "Slima'rgeddon";
title.width = title.textWidth + 10;
title.selectable = false;
title.x = 400 - (title.width / 2)
title.y = 50;
addChild(title);

Noticeable differences:
In the Embed tag I have fontName and it is declared as type Class.
I declare a TextFormat myself.
I set antiAliasType to “advanced”

Yo!
The language you use to make a game doesn’t really matter as long as it allows you to do what you want.
The most common platforms for games on Kong are Flash, Unity3D and HTML5 , all three can be easily uploaded and have Kong API attached to them.

Topic: Game Programming / Flash Player Version Problem?

Runs fine for me, must be a non-updated player issue.
One thing, your game has 2 pause system implemented, that is very annoying!

Topic: Game Design / Constructive crit please

Map generation can get you stuck sometimes by having a block on the position you’ll spawn, crafting system is kinda confusing I try to make a sharp stone but always get the message “you already have that weapon equipped”, the inventory desperately needs a tooltip and I’m unsure about this one but it felt like opening the character screen caused frames to drop. I do like the crafting system as is though where you go step by step to craft the item, keep up the good work!

Topic: Game Programming / GiTD #41 - *Random Generation*

They are both games currently in Starcraft 2 Arcade so there isn’t a “nice” way to show them however Element TD started as a flash game and it has been in many other games. This game has 2 basic tower a single target “arrow” and a splash “cannon”, at 5th wave you are given a choice (unless it’s on random mode) where you can choose between one of the elements, a boss based on it comes out after you kill it you are attuned to that element. Each element can be attuned 3 times each time giving you access to stronger towers then it’s just about combos, a light tower when upgraded using the nature element gives you every X kills you gain 1 life, you can afterwards upgrade this life tower with an earth element to make it a stun tower. You can check better information here :P http://www.eletd.com/towers.php

Mineralz is a survival TD, you control a unit, which has to mine from 4 different minerals. Each represents an attribute, blue is walls, purple is damage, red is healing/energy and lastly green is for upgrades. So what you need to do, is mine enough to build a Wall, grabbing a couple of cannons an healers, giving them an energy generator. Survive and upgrade as long as you can, it’s a damn long and hard game. Got no links for it but there’s probably old youtube tutorials around :p

Your code, with the durability and Wood element mae me think it was a mix of those 2 :D

Have you played Mineralz, Draco? Those settings make me wonder if you’re doing a mix of it with Element TD.

And here’s my screen, coding it through ScriptableObjects

Okey, end of day 1.
Got a few things done wrong, one of them is buggy and makes the use of 3D useless but hopefully I’ll deal with it before the deadline, the other is outright dumbness of mine. I also feel like I got a few things right, I think the way I built the tower system is good that it can be randomized into pure awesomeness, and from time to time, make players rage (still wondering if that’s good or bad, but hey that’s how random things are!)

Meanwhile, here’s a terribly low quality gif of many squares

Going to make what probably will be a Tower Defense, not going with a deep random style instead a superficial one which will affect the player choices

“Quick”
“That way”
“Increase” or “Decrease” or both, up to the dev choice (as in all 3 allowed but truly only 1 required)

Topic: Game Programming / GiTD #40 - *Congratulations Zoib*

Zoib the music in your game is just perfectly tuned to the game increasing pace making it feel awesome and it’s 5 minutes style makes it great for a series of 5 mins games. Something I’ve noticed in the upgrades you can skip tiers on them, was that on purpose?

Thanks for the reviews, I started thursday night and had a bunch of big breaks, but I love prototyping and I think I did great for the time I had. I don’t think it’s a matter of being necessary or not to have a 3D component, I believe it’s a matter of being different, of finding a way to twist a 2D game style so to not have it be simply a “clone”. I could have one many things better, one of them should have been testing the upgrades cost :P

Aesica, that sounds like an awesome storyline :P
