How was this coded? The screen projection? I imagine it s the usual trig but the frame rate is so goddamn low and but the thing also dont look like it s missing framerate like it comes in steps What to do Curious of the source code Also whatexisting tool that can do this by default, preferably lightweight and libre?

>>383 Start with learning C from scratch. Read the book, make every single program inside the book. Everytime you come up with a unique idea to use the new stuff you have learnt, make something with it, whether it fails or not is irrelevent, as long as you try. Eventually you will stop failing and you will begin succeeding. After a large period of time and practice, you will be capable of producing a powerful game with nothing but computer logic. I believe it is also best for you to take a programming course in university, and hope you get good teachers which practice making multiple programs, and teach you how a computer works.
>>383 >>422 This is the only path you can take for absolute success with absolute self reliance.
HOW THE FUCK DO YOU WRITE CODE FOR INSTANCE WHEN YOU HOLD RIGHT KEY AND THEN YOU SWITCHES TO HOLDING DOWN KEY WITHOUT GETTING LAG DURING THAT TRANSITION OF SWITCHING KEY? THE ONLY GUIDE I GOT FROM INTERWEB WAS TO USE SOME BULLSHIT SETMEM C LIBRARY. HOW THE FUCK DO YOU SOLVE THIS SHIT BY ONLY RELYING 100% FROM THE GAME ENGINE. >INB4 WTF WITH CAPS RED TEXT STFU, ANSWER MY MY QUESTION. GODDAMN IT I FUCKING HATE BEING A PROGRAMMING NOOB

Any other tool where i can prototype game features quickly no need to shit out exe or apps, maybe just record gifs of features, to quickly test a few things... graphic programmings and whatnot

Engines for potatos Deveropa 04/09/2020 (Thu) 12:04:54 ID: 6d2071 No.105 [Reply]
hey all, recently became homeless but i still want to work on my game. i'm currently on a shitty laptop, are there any game engines that might be able to run on it? i'm thinking unity but i want to hear suggestions

>ctrl+f 'sfml' >no results Step up your game, /agdg/. Here OP, this is an extremely easy to use engine that creates compact and fast executables. https://www.sfml-dev.org/index.php
Sorry you are homeless anon Xray engine is got its sauce openes. (Go to github) Sift through the code copy, paste modify well enough and im sure nobody will notice.
Try one of those webgl javascript engines (frameworks). Also get on some support, I guarantee there's some charity that will hand you a better laptop.

Uncommon Time Full-Rewrite Project Deveropa 07/22/2020 (Wed) 02:45:29 No.279 [Reply]
Tenative Name : Uncommon Time Retuned Demo day builds (Latest at feb 13th) : https://mega.nz/folder/9HhVQaAb#Xa_HoCynSVuPKx7iOJTLNw I am doing a full rewrite/edit of Feralpheonix's game Uncommon Time. In addition to the purging of literal-faggotry and tumblrshit, it cuts filler and adds in new story elements. Included are more main characters, a few new side characters, real villains, and gives the both the player and characters more agency in their actions. For the gameplay side, spells from all fronts are being tweaked to make them more useful. Characters that were otherwise shit for one reason or another are changed up to be better. Yanfly Engine Ace scripts are added, so the party limit has increased to 7, and there are various other additions to make the game better. as well as a few oversights with the scripts that I need to work around to make time less-wasted >why are you doing this? To prove to myself I can emotionally get over my nodev status and make "something big". >You're not gonna fuck up Teagan, right? Hell no, she's still snide and critical as ever. In the rewrite, she's a legit monk instead of a "fighter", no longer a carbon copy of whatever anime character FP used to template Teagan, and will still be critical about the party over their shitty playing. And for you glorious waifufags, I got you covered, fam. >Is FeralPheonix's self-insert (Alto) less of a cunt now? Yes. Alto as a character has been split into triplet siblings now: Alto, Mezzo, and Soprano. The bitchyness and autism have been shuffled around the three of them, so you'll see how things pan out as the game progresses.

>>279 Is there an archive of threads, past "fan" games/content, and/or an archive of the 2015 stream(s)? I've only been able to find a handful of those. Thanks.
It's dead, isn't it? A shame. Even cuckchan could finish their SJW parody game.

Is there a free/paid engine preferably unity/godot that allows me to assign assets so they are interactive like this Paris scene from Bioshock infinite ? https://youtu.be/GydRfy9KHY0 My goal is not really a game but an interactive virtual world that are exactly like that scene. >NPC greets you >NPC doing their own things >First Person View >Interact with objects >Sitting, enjoying the slow pace >Ambient and object sound >To exit, just needs to enter back the door/go to sleep Sort of a trip to the past where time was great. Reminiscing the childhood and buildings recreated from photos and scans.

>>354 I-I'm more like an artist more than the programmer..
It doesn't stop requiring videogame logic just because there's no "gameplay" objective. Even "it's interactive" doesn't have any standard definition, do you interact with it by proximity? How far away? By clicking it? By pressing a hotkey when you're near it? By pulling a lever? Do you need an item or some other prerequisite? Does it cause something else to trigger elsewhere? There's no single solution that accounts for all possibilities, so you have to script it in. It doesn't sound complicated though, I'm sure those engines have very simple ways to accomplish what you want, but I suspect it requires writing some code anyway. I'm not very familiar with the engines so I can't say exactly what.
>>356 Is there a specific genre for that? I know platformer. Or maybe it's point and click?
>>353 >i-i-is UNITY a good engine to use? >wha about goDoT? These unityfags i swear.... Go back to making garbage on your joke of an engine

>>151 Uncommon Time Rewrite Project - DEMO DAY 8/8 build LINK: https://mega.nz/file/gaxR1JIB#GzLFv3TM4sLtUGv6u5IbvMTT7EKyMaWEn-UdPY_12TM I will be releasing another demo when nuclear teagan is finished. At that point I'll begin to focus on art and music stuff. CHANGES FROM LAST VERSION (If I can remember exactly how much has changed) -- Various sporadic corrections with character nameplates, typos and message box misalignment. -- Added Yanfly engine's Victory Aftermath. -- Day 1 post-rehearsal fully implemented, demo progress technically ends there, but I will eventually release a demo that has progress up to Nuclear Teagan completed. -- Changed a dialogue moment in the Dal Segno Luthier's bakery where Soprano breaks character and says something nice to Alto. -- Bosses for various mid/late-game arcs have been included. They are fightable through the debug boss room, accessible once you reach the end of the demo. -- Debug boss room fully revealed this time because I'm lazy, and partly because I want to show shit off. As such some have suggested levels if you actually want to play them. -- New, pre-secret-final-arc area, Spiritoso Peak has it's maps completed. Access, however is not available in the main game, only through debug. Even then there are no encounters, so it's only worth looking at for about a few minutes at most.

RPG Maker general Deveropa 10/06/2019 (Sun) 13:34:44 ID: f3ecea No.67 [Reply]
Anyone here using the RPG Makers? Which version do you use? What are your favorite projects made with it?
1 post omitted.
I still have RPGMaker 95.
>>67 >2k/2k3 VH XP Finding Paradise Reincarnations (unfinished and abandoned, but the story has promise) >VX/Ace Tales Of The Drunken Paladin (funny, unique setting/worldbuilding, generally a fun ride) Some Touhou Platformer (forgot the name) >MV Ruins Seeker
How is GraphicsGale compared to Aseprite? What about Pyxel Edit? How does Wolf RPG Editor compare to RPG Maker?
>Anyone here using the RPG Makers? Not for anything more than mods of other people's games anymore. >Which version do you use? XP is the best in my opinion, but I have copies of all of them downloaded. >What are your favorite projects made with it? My own? I never finished my own game in it even after all these years. Closest I got was heavy programming work for one, it was pretty close to playable, but it was something I lost interest in. I might consider reworking it into something different eventually, I kept the files. It would be especially badass to work it into two template projects for other people to use and then shit out a quick and dirty sample game. >>225 >How does Wolf RPG Editor compare to RPG Maker? It's more powerful with less programming knowledge from what I understand, but if you can script in a Ruby-derived RPG Maker you might find yourself wanting to use that instead. Wolf RPG Editor's engine is better too though. And there isn't an awkward split between script variables and database variables, it's all the same shit. I feel like Wolf RPG Editor overall is better, but having to relearn how to do shit for it or not being able to type code and instead doing everything the old RPG Maker way (events) would get a bit tiring. So while I had some interest in using Wolf RPG Editor, I quickly thought, "Yeah, I would only use this for mods too," and gave up trying to learn more advanced usage. I can tell why nips like it though. And it's free so they don't have to pirate RPG Maker and risk getting thrown in prison since they take piracy so much more seriously over there.
>>310 >XP is the best in my opinion RPG Maker MZ is now out. It's basically MV with XP's multi-layered tileset system.
