Oh man Hash, it's been a while.
I remember when we were drawing pictures of regs and I drew you as a brown hash symbol. Good times, good times.

I ended up spending about half of the time posting this message on choosing a response mood, yet I still go for an old one

Doomsday-One, working on stuff better than preloaders. Marginally.

Haha yeah sadly that's probably what ill do. I miss this place like fuck though. I honestly believe from '04-'07 when I spent every waking moment on newground's was the happiest time of my life. Waking up super excited to see what was new online. I'm too much a critical asshole to enjoy anything now though. Growing up sucks

It's like a reunion here! (I am Cybex by the way, I never got my account (or Alt account) back from when the star syndicate stole it).

I miss this place too! Who remembers the 2007 AS wars? (You will not believe how long I spent searching for that link!). I think the AS wars has to be my favorite ever newgrounds memory!

Yeah. I look back at my profile and I have no fucking idea how I made so much junk in 2005/2006. A weekend used to be a "short project" for me back then, and a month long project was a long project. Now a month project is like the shortest I can do anymore, and a long project is 3 years of full time on the same god damn thing, while also canceling every single side project I've tried to do while working on it.

Looking forward to being done with it so I can try to get back into the groove of doing a bunch of short projects again.

I know when I was trapped in high school, couldn't drive a car yet, lived in suburbs where all my friends started drugs, and played high school soccer, i spent every second i could trying to create stuff at home. I think experiences give you inspiration, so when we're working in an office with just us 2 we don't get the same experience as in school with all the drama, activities, etc.

tl;dr my cartoony flash submissions were inspired by the hurt and pain of high school drama

the events are merely fictional, written, directed, and acted out by all who create them

In that case you're only an inch taller than me. I guess everyone's just really short then.

Anyways, last night I made meself a cool Dynamic grass object. It can make a plain of grass and wind go through it, and also you can set a disturbance point with a certain radius and strength. Should liven up my future top down shooter projects....yummmm

Tracking one heck of a memory issue in flash player:

http://jpauclair.net/2012/02/25/epic-memory-track-down/

Summary being that the following code executed every frame will cause flash player to allocate 'megabytes' of memory.

var anon:*;
for(var i:int = 0; i<1000000; i++)
   anon = 3.3;

There's also a bug report you can vote up on adobe:

I love you, Luca; NAPE is awesomesauce dental floss.

Soooooo, what's everyone doing project-wise? I've noticed we get good discussions when someone makes some neat little thing. And I'm bored right now...

Well right now Im working on a tile based, top down puzzle game with 40 different levels. Its not to neat, but thought I let everybody know. I envolves pushing rocks, teleporting, doding bullets, etc. Should be done, sort of shortly. I still need music/FX and to add a couple more hidden and unequipable items.

Here's that dynamic grass thing I was talking about:
http://www.newgrounds.com/dump/item/f51f9bdb1b15473a7692281e 59592064

Movement - WASD / Arrow Keys to move the Black Ball

mouseX controls the radius of the disturbance point ( Black ball), and mouseY controls the strength. For "realistic" results keep your mouse near the very top of the movie.

Also what's funny is that it was lagging on my computer, but no lag when I run it on the dumping grounds....hum...

All that grass moves like that just by me changing 4 or 8 parameters (I have a total of 8 points controlling the field). I also have ideas on making the grass like this tiled, which would be way more efficient in an actual game.

Wow, that looks amazing!

It's so awesome how, the concept is so simple, but implemented well it's awe-inspiring.

I love how there's so much you can do by having a huge number of objects moving together by some algorithm, stuff like this:

Holy crap that fluid thing really does look really cool!

And yeah, I was a bit surprised at the effect of my grass myself! Getting lots of things moving can make it all come alive. Just the grass moving I think would make any game look much better, more in-depth...better atmosphere I guess.
I gotta get a shitload of work done, but once that's through, I'll try cooking up a library type thing for the grass or something, or develop it enough for use in a game.

Also, I'll be taking a shot at that fluid thing...SO cool, so many possibilities!

P.

Your dynamic grass looks pretty good. First I thought the ball was moving in a hamster ball because there was something like a globe around him :P, but then that changed to just a small circle and I could see he pushing off the grass while moving. Also the wind over the grass looks really cool.

Also yeah, Joey Betz's tests on the viscoelastic fluids algorithms was pretty cool, I remember I already saw that hundreds of times on his website.

I also like a lot Fluids Simulation fluids simulation:

You can move the fluid with the mouse.

It is awesome! Looks very realistic!
