Been working on Tactics - so far i've got a loading screen, a couple client/server sockets that sit there, a login screen that so far does nothing, and a server selection screen that also sits there looking pretty. Woo!

Learning more and more that Flixel is pretty bare-minimum, and doesn't really work terribly well for a game like, y'know, an MMO.

Also, github

#shamelessselfpromotion

anywayyyyy... Has an improved random number generation class?

I have a quick question and I hope this thread is the right place to ask it.

Has any one of you used haxe? Is it really as great as it's said to be?

I like the blue and red "tightness indicators" you could probably remove the percentages so long as the user understands those indications. I don't know what ludum dare is but is this supposed to be a mobile game?

So today I was relaxing from C++ programming, and wanted to start making a quick Haxe game, but got sidetracked making some dev tools, but what's really cool is that now I have a dynamic asset loading system, and I can reload assets on the fly. So I can play with graphics without even restarting the game!
:o

Adding level scripting now, which should be pretty quick, and then I'll be able to pretty much have the game running, and develop levels for it. I can control the loading through an in-game console, reload any assets at all, even other scripts or whatever.

Just happy about that :)

So I'm back. Like really back and I'm overlooking some old files that I never completed -- a few collabs, specifically "The Newgrounds Collab" but does anyone still do collabs and such? Is anyone interested in helping partake in the Newgrounds Collab in tribute?

Just curious.

People are collab-ing like crazy now. Plus there's still the collab forum for bigger projects. I think you have to be a supporter to post there.

In other news, I think I'm done my RPG. Few more days until my finals are over, then idk. I want to take summer classes at some local college, but I'm not sure how the application process goes. Make a few small games, start up on the other RPG I revived, then the sequel for this current one. Or I might just relax.

Post what you're all working on!

That looks pretty cool. Reminds me of the effect in Cowboy Bebop when they go through the gates.

I don't understand the shades craze. Maybe it's because my pic isn't a face.

Actually, it was inspired by the Windows "starfield" screensaver.

Wow so my engine is coming far.

I can script a world's setup, I have object creation scripts, and I can use Flash as my level editor and asset creation tool. Even better, I can change all of the above without restarting the game (scripts require a level restart obviously though, and scripting for runtime logic purposes would be too slow). But graphics can be reloaded whenever.

Looking for an artist to collab on a quick game to see how usable my engine is, but hell...I'm having fun playing with it :D

Is that a euphemism for something else...?

But yeah, mine does too. It won't let me target a 3rd city, it says it's already destroyed.

the 3rd city is too large, you need to upgrade capacitior capacity, or launch a satellite (the tutorial guy does tell you this)

part of me thinks this whole game is a euphemism.

I think Winnipeg is actually out of range, you need to launch a satellite to get a third city.

It took me forever to realize that the valves are like dimmer switches and they need to be red to cool/function. but then my capacitor blew up and it wasn't even hot.
