Topic: Off-topic / Do you know of any games on Kongregate that contain music from movies or from other games?

Originally posted by Mikkmar:

Well, since you mentioned MacLeod, his music has been in countless movies and games. Does that count?

Oh! I didn’t know movies used his stuff so much. I guess I just associated him with independent developers. But nah, what I have in mind is something from the original soundtrack of a movie

Popular videos on YouTube often use copyrighted music, but posting a game on a flash portal is a different matter

I recommend trying to find a parody version of whatever music you want to use.

UzzBuzz does some nice 8-bit music. :)

Yeah, that’s an idea, and although I’ve thought of using parodies, I have visions for a few special moments when I feel that only the original would deliver the intended effect. Of course, they are only visions – in practice, I might decide that the way I’ve put together that part of the game does not fit well enough with the music

Why are you asking OT this?

Because asking it on the main Kongregate forum might give someone ideas, and because OT also has people who play games…I’m guessing…

But, you see, that assumes I’m present for suing

then ether way. . .
Any work you put into it will for nothing, for they take the game down

I don’t believe that work is ever for nothing, and even if they take it off Kongregate, I can still have it up on my own obscure site that 10 people will ever know about. In any case, that’s what I want to know – if Kongregate cares about games using copyrighted music, or if my game will be composed by Kevin MacLeod

Topic: Off-topic / Do you know of any games on Kongregate that contain music from movies or from other games?

I’m asking in case I eventually end up making some game thing that I deem decent. I wouldn’t want to release something half-assed, but whether or not it’s a good idea to use popular movie music in a game is for me to worry about. I don’t really give a shit about the law, I just want to know if Kongregate has a problem with it, and, like the title says, if there are games on here that have done that

Topic: Game Programming / [Solved] I'm trying to add a death screen to my game, but it slows down the game as if there's a memory leak

EDIT: I kinda fixed it; if you care, read the end
EDIT 2: I think I totally fixed it now

OKAY SO first of all I’m not experienced, so bear with my offensive coding practices or whatever

Here’s the problem – I’m trying to make a death screen for a game (currently involving only text and a replay button), but when I die a few times, the game becomes very slow, as if there’s a memory leak

I’m not sure what information I might want to provide, but the main timeline has two frames, though the second frame contains only the death screen on a layer called Abyss (which is also where the button’s separate code is, do you find that revolting?) And, in case it matters, another thing on that layer is the pit of death

Here’s part of the code on the first frame


	if(lives <= 0)
	{
		gotoAndStop(2);
		dead = true;
		lives = totalLives;
		trace(lives);

		stage.removeEventListener(Event.ENTER_FRAME, loop);
		stage.removeEventListener(KeyboardEvent.KEY_DOWN, keyDownHandler);
		stage.removeEventListener(KeyboardEvent.KEY_UP, keyUpHandler);

// These listeners are added around the start of the code

		/*back.other.gotoAndStop(35); 
		back.visuals.gotoAndStop(35);
		collisions.gotoAndStop(35);
		foreground.visualsFG.gotoAndStop(35);
		Rainbow.gotoAndStop(35);
		staticBack.gotoAndStop(35);
		Abyss.gotoAndStop(35);*/

// I've commented out the above lines because they don't seem to make a difference - 
//the idea was to set those layers/symbols on the blank keyframe 35 every time I die, 
//in case Flash draws something on top of itself
	
	}

And here’s the code on the second frame, on the Abyss layer


replayButton.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, fl_ClickToGoToAndStopAtFrame);

function fl_ClickToGoToAndStopAtFrame(event:MouseEvent):void
{
	gotoAndPlay(1); 
	dead = false;
	trace("Dead: " + dead);
	replayButton.removeEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, fl_ClickToGoToAndStopAtFrame);
}

This problem doesn’t happen when I switch levels, only when I go to the death screen and back. I’ve tried making the death screen act kinda like a level and keeping the main timeline as one frame, but that didn’t work either, or maybe I didn’t do it properly. I guess I’ll keep thinking, but in the meantime, someone might have a suggestion


Edit:
k
So, like I said, I kinda fixed it, optimized it, and put everything on the first frame, but now I have a new problem at hand – I haven’t had time to think about it myself, so I’m not gonna ask for assistance (not yet anyway), but here it is anyway – the slow-down problem was from my glimmering stars and motion tweened grass, but I’m not sure what exactly happened


Edit 2:

I used .visible = true and false and I think it’s all good now wow I’m like one of those guys who hack the Pentagon, except…not…

Funny thing, that’s pretty much what I said about 6 years ago when I went to live in the US, and more specifically, California. In my case, it went kinda like this:

I’ve searched like all over the place and consulted with Google but I don’t see it

I’m not saying the game on my profile is going to make me a millionaire, this is for something else

Edit: I guess this would’ve been appropriate in the Kongregate forum too…

Topic: Off-topic / Should a man be able to hit a woman if..

The argument that “men shouldn’t hit women because they are stronger” (which is often bullshit) is like saying that a warrior shouldn’t hit a rogue mage because he’s stronger. How does that make sense?

And what 15man said

But is it throbbing out of rage or something else?

I don’t know. There was a quest in WoW that let you use one and it looked like shrikes or boomerangs being fired at rapid pace. Seems pretty close to axe.

But will it blend?

Like a glaive thrower that the night elves use in world of Warcraft?

Something like that, but instead of the round-ish glaives, it would throw axes, and I think a glaive thrower is more like a ballista than a catapult

I hope you didn’t just take my idea of a gun cannon and change the guns to axes and cannon to catapult.

Nah, I made this thread directly after getting on OT

I probably won’t do that, but it got me thinking about something like a catapult that launches whole axes, just axe heads, or even axes with heads on both ends of the pole. If nothing else, it sounds super cool, the implications of dead people aside
Ever heard of something like this?
