My online flash game Update

2011-05-30 19:15:59 by narf

It's been about a year since I last talked about it. Officially it's an Online Action RTS, that will be competitively playable against someone across the net.

As of right now it's working and uses peer to peer connection streams. It's in a heavy debugging phase. Lots of things to fix and optimize for performance. However it's playable, and it got me an A+ for my Computer Science Honors degree, so I'm quite happy with it.

No set release date. Right now I've been on a bit of a break from it. I'd been working constantly for 8 months on it learning flash and Actionscript 3 and building the game engine from scratch. Been lurking the flash forum for little tidbits aswell. It's all been a crazy experience. I feel I'm much more in tune with flash programming now.

I'm certainly not ready to release anything to the public. I still gotta get the artwork done, and theres tons of features I have in my head I want to add. Everything is really easy to implement in the final stages so really is just about how much I really want to include in it.

May be another year of me ironing it out since I think my two other group members are moving on to other projects. But i want it to be quality and preferably working with the newgrounds api.

Until then :)

So i guess I'm updating the leaderboards now. Not fun to do, but I'll do it cause im a nice guy and don't want the thread to die.


Flash Game Update

First and formost, it's no longer a platformer but a pikman control style rts with competitive online multiplayer. Much deliberating caused the change.

So far it's been a lot of learning AS3 which is a lot like Java I have to say. Much more programmer friendly for someone whose programmed in high level languages as much as I have. Really neat stuff. Learning lots and its a lot more fun then anything I've programmed in a long time.

Got quite a bit done. It's still all fairly basic. Mostly testing out things like AI bots, player control, collisions, pathfinding ect.

More details to come. It's all still in a structuring phase.


What's in the works?

We'll since I've become pivotly retired, I've gotten into planning a few things.

First and for most, once I get my new laptop I'll continue my work on the mega pivoting tutorial. It's still a work in progress but it's definitely my official last piece to finish before I'm done with the pivoting program. Will still be a reg at the pivot thread and provide my advice when needed. Might even test out a bit of what is called "stykz"? It's an upgraded pivoting program. I'll play around with it for a bit and include it as a bonus in my pivoting tutorial.

For this school year, it turns out I'll be making an online flash game with a team as my final project for my programming degree. I volunteered to do the animation sprites for it, but will be involved in much of the programming. My team is looking into beta testing at the halfway mark, so you should see the open beta popping up on newgrounds somewhere in the future. It's going to be an online co-operative platformer.

Not as active in submissions as I used to be but just letting you guys know I'm still here and will be submitting soon.

What's in the works?


The Pivot Showcase Is Back Yo!

2010-01-31 03:31:23 by narf

http://www.newgrounds.com/bbs/topic/11 40612
See link^^

Finally an animating section. A place where people can't bitch at the validity of whether or not pivot should be in this or that section. It's now also a place where more experienced animators can see it and hopefully work up the boredom or nerve to try it.

I like pivot for the mere fact of watching what people manage to do with it. Unlike flash you get practically nothing to work with yet over the course of my 2 years experience with it, I've seen some absolutely amazing things done that MANY flash regs would think impossible or highly unlikely with such a tool. Yet almost daily there's someone out there that just makes something impressive.

This is why i try to keep pivot on newgrounds. I like to see how far its limits can be pushed. So far there has not been a definitive end. Every year someone pushes the boundaries and ups the standards. What better place then newgrounds, to find talent capable of accomplishing such things.

So try it out. Whether you love it or hate it, try it and have some fun. That's what it's for.
