I find both the animation and the game programming sides of things quite interesting, and I often wonder just why it is people just don't 'get' either side. You can be creative in code, and you can be structured in your drawing, so it's not a mindset thing. You can learn to draw and you can intuitively code so it's not a talent thing. Maybe it's just me but I *get* both worlds and am quite happy coding and drawing at the same time.

Speaking of which, Les, if you're reading this, I'll get some scans done for the game tommorow, but I've been busy tinkering with thisagain...

Speaking of
this, can people test this and tell me what kind of frame rate they're getting? Bottom left of the screen.

Around 40fps. Looks great with textures, what are you planning to do with it?

It's fluctuating (sp) so much I can't tell the exact framerate, it varies from 30-something to 50-something. Sometimes I think I can make out a 6 as well.

I was almost perfect with circles and finding 90 degree lines, but triangles were pretty bad for me.

Perfect. That was the framerate I've got coded in. Although I'm guessing when I've got more going on the lag's going to increase. It was struggling at 60fps to keep it up

Looks great with textures, what are you planning to do with it?

Something like this...

Drawn by me... started when you asked. I'm a artcoder! ^_^
Props to those who get the reference. Anyone think this'd make a good t-shirt with the final result drawn in instead of the question mark?

The Eyeballing Game

The first time I tried I accidentally misclicked one giving me 16 points off... and I got 4.11, so I redid it and got 3.28. Pretty interesting test though. I'd say it has something to do with drawing capability, but Luis obviously has art skills. The distribution is really interesting at least.

I got a 10.68. Then I took it again and got a 6 point something. I got mad because i thought i did worse, until i read the other posts and found out the lower the better. Haha.

I did better with circles and finding the point of convergence then anything else. I don't really think the score you got on this has anything to do with your drawing ability.

It doesnt. it has got to do with penis size. so far Spamburger has the largest penis. Delta the smallest. I'm not suprised frankly.

You think asians created the test? That's why it's so backwards? It says smallers better.

Sweet. I was best at midpoint and center of a circle. I got one perfect 0.0 for center of a circle on a previous round I didn't finish.

Dungeon Keeper?

I got 4.something on that Eye test. I suck at making the parallelogram.

Also, question for those who both code and do the art: Do you find you get motivated to do one part of the process based on what you've come up with on the other side? For instance, does finishing up some sprite stuff for instance make you want to do coding (or vice versa)? I know I get motivated seeing what someone else has done when working on a game, but I've never done both aspects myself, and am curious.

You're talking about me aren't you? :-P

I find it very much easier to work with people who know my side of the project also, though Glaiel used to yell at me when I'd try to code stuff, so I guess there's a point where you breach too far into the other's arena.

Recently I've been posting mainly on General, so I rarely visit the flash forum, and therefore I haven't been posting here, however soon I will try to start visiting here regularly again, though I can't promise anything, to be honest.

Arkadium

A new game I'm working on with Argentin, the WIP can be found here. And I haven't got any idea what the name means, though it might be something Romanian, since Argentin is. The graphics are turning out great so far.

And Fuberella, don't mention it to the new FlashBase.
