Topic: Game Programming / Sprite Cutter

Hai. I would like to introduce my recent project – Sprite cutie. Maybe it will be useful for some of you. Basically this is the same as spritecow.com, but with no need of so much clicking and with more javascript/as3 friendly output format.

Planes builder (this is mix of just two style-sets – imagine how many posibilites goes with each another)
- However this will be removed from game and probably shared as placeholder-sprites generator for your games.

Also there are big changes in physics and weapons.

For now each plane support only one directional skill – try dragging your plane.
Shooting is also directional – will add heating soon.

Thanks folks. Star control is really inspiring :)

Also I’ve talked with my graphician and we agreed with you that the space genre is overused so we will be going back on earth soon.

However I have to keep obstacles in the air — so we decided to mix World War with some kind of floating islands.

New Ships

Also accounts and tons of tweaks.

I wonder what should I put in the game to make it more about tactics. Skills ? I want to keep it minimalistic

Topic: Game Programming / Collection of Questions by 2by4

@2by4

I am not going to argue flash vs html5. I am javascript programmer and I can share my subjective point of view.

The good thing about writing browser based games using javascript is that you already have everything you need to start.
Which is notepad and a browser. This is not only easy to begin with but also making you extremely portable.

If you are going to write multiplayer stuff and want to be an indie/self-sufficient developer – I have good news for you:
Javascript can be used also to write server. Using node.js – which in meaning of performance is loosing only to C++, but can compete with C# and Java. Using same language in client and server is a very comfortable thing.

For writing client you will be using what is called HTML5 – which has very neat tools of trade for both 2D and 3D graphics.

Where to start ? I am sure any `google: javascript tutorial` will give u the same knowledge.
Then MDN will be your best friend.
You don’t really have to know HTML/CSS – but it is very convenient if you do – as it is genuine useful for building GUI.

When you know some basics join us on #bbg – we enjoy answering questions :)

As for proof-of-concept here is the link for mine realtime multiplayer game using html5 and node.

I have taken the game into space genre, not sure it was a good idea.

@GameBuilder15: I am going to sell only look’n’feel things like alternative plane graphics and such.

3) Team mode – destroy enemy base
4) Player will have possibility to upgrade himself during the gameplay
5) The second mode will be to esscort a BIG passanger plane on its way to the other side of map

@Aceria620: I don’t think it would be possible with PHP.

Yes this is node.js and websockets.

I am quite stuck with further development. Not sure what I want this game to be.

I have added some more maneuverability options – use A, S, D to strafe – general tactics is to slow down before someone and take him down with bullets.

Also you can fight for your country, as there is a scoreboard with flags :)

Topic: Collaborations / Minimalistic pixel graphics reflecting characters from movies

Hi there.

I am making a very simple game. I have the prototype ready and collecting assets right now.

I think you can figure out the gameplay by yourself

Now. I need more pixelated versions of movies and stories for them.

Graphics are just 4x pixels – and should be kept that minimalistic way

Stories are bullshit phrases mixed with 3 tags. For example:

{person} and {person} are kissing each other while {person} is watching.
{protagonist} is trying to escape from {antagonist} and {antagonist}

I need the {tags} to be included with characters list on your set – as I don’t know all the movies.

If the game will have any revenue I will share it among the collaborators based on popularity of each set (players will buy another sets).

Some ideas:

Avatar, Married with kids, Lord of the rings, Desperate housewifes, Dr. House, Big Bang theory, Star-Trek or any movie/serie you like.

Another example – Avengers set by Qrakis

If you are fancy to work on this project contact me via email/gtalk

Topic: Game Design / Can I have some feedback?

@Jzyehoshua: This idea might be good, but I really f***ed up design in this game (monochromatic paper-like), and it’s quite hard to get these snakes look diferent, I will reconsider it anyway. Thanks.

@DannyDaNinja: I suspect it’s yelling about google analytics

Topic: Game Design / Can I have some feedback?

Revamped multiplayer snake.

It’s quite hard to gather enough ppl to play before publication so please invite your friends if there is noone online.

Here is the game

I’d like to release 1.0v ASAP and then add some twisted features if the game will be any success. I’d be grateful if you have any idea about what can make the game more interesting.

Topic: Game Design / Good music composer?

Oh and sorry to say but – making music with LMMS and Ardour (generally linux) – is a painful expirence. Using JACK, incomplete software, bullshit about not supporting VST, can’t even track with notes (midi – ardour), crashes, FFADO and lotsa more stuff you have to care about instead of just makin progress in composing. I am a linux user and I am forced to have a windows copy just for music making.

Topic: Game Design / Good music composer?

I assume you mean pro music, not some ready loops joined together.

Fruity Loops Studio (really easy to use)
or
Reaper (almost free but not as user friendly)

If you feel retro you can give a try to any tracker (I recommend modplug tracker for some painless start)

The truth is that making music is about your abilities – not the software.

bugs in my reply :)

  • does NOT
  • JSONP works by executing outside script. It means you need a wrapper function to deal with response which is an Object not a string (JSON).
