Control Scheme

Kind of surprised on the preference of keyboard over mouse. I've always thought of the mouse an extension of my arm, and prefer it for just about all simple applications. Good to know what other people think.

Thanks guys.

I prefer the keyboard to mouse too (but that's mainly because I have a laptop (LOL, trackpad)). It's a lot easier to press "R" than clicking a reload button, etc.

Having said that, there are a lot of games that don't use the keyboard well, i.e. using left/right arrows to move but using space for jump. Also, there's no reason why WASD and arrows cant both be used to move, like in This Is The Only Level Too.

Also, Srsly, release on NG already John. And include medals in your games. FUCK.

Obviously some games need to be mouse based, (Escape the room, etc) and some need to be keyboard based (Shift, etc), but for a majority of games, I don't see why you can't have a mouse mode and a keyboard mode like:

Yea so have fun using the collaboration forum. I was merely pointing out that if you want to complain about the quality of the users' skills/how noob they are or whatever, don't use it or start your own good collab with high standards...no ones stopping you (farza)

funkycaveman Returns!

Hi everyone!
Glad to be back and hope you are all well. I have not been into playing around with flash, so I left Newgrounds. But after playing a few flash games here and there, brought back some motivation. So I am back now, some of you may never heard of me, if so i'm funkycaveman. And I will be releasing a new game soon.
What's been going on recently, I can see the forums have changed a bit :S

Hello there, I think I vaguely remember your username, welcome back!

In other news, I just submitted an old, broken game. For which I'll most likely rot in hell. I'm curious as to how it turns out.

WHITE WHALES

You guys ever have those projects that you just can't seem to finish nor make good progress on? I've got this old project, which is awesome in scope, but it's been plaguing me since 2007. I keep trying to whittle away at it, but it's akin to banging my head against a wall to make any progress.

It's so much easier to start new things because new ideas keep flowing, but I know I'll regret it if I don't finish this one. I also don't want to rush it to completion and sacrifice quality.

The thought that it will never be worth the amount of time, effort, planning, and work keeps niggling the back of my thoughts. But the grind must go on.

Curse you Abobo!

You never know how popular a game will be till it's out. Plus that game is already awesome.

I can only code so fast , i think i might just get rid of that upload because it gets annoying when im working on things and i get people telling me to do it , i mean who wouldnt think of attacking in the air yknow ?

Basically if anyone has any ideas please keep them to yourself , ive probably already thought of it .

Also Chinese democracy by guns n roses is the best album ever made

ahah that game looks awesome, if you made it slightly faster (movement, attacking) then would be a great concept, good luck with that, be sure to tell me how it goes and if you want any help with it.

C++ looks like a good language, seeing actionscript is basically a modded version of java, people generally do not know what AS is when you tell them, so it seems like a good idea to learn another language the way you are doing, keep it up! I will also be on the look out for the game in the game trailer collab, will look forward to it, good luck in the future mate :)

Allow me:

Guns and Roses is my favorite band of all time.

I got hooked on them in 1988 when I was 8 years old and they were absolutely the shit. Appetite for Destruction is one of the best albums ever written. Then came Lies: Another excellent album.

Then, they reformed, keeping key members (Slash + Izzy primarily... who wrote almost ALL of GnRs music and Duff, just because) and came out with the Use Your Illusion albums. Still great GnR tunes, and some of my favorite albums.

Now... Axl is an amazing lyricist and excellent performer. I will never, ever deny that. The band would never have been the same without him.

But... then again... it would never be the same without at least Duff/Izzy/Slash either, and it's not.

In my opinion It's a flaming pile of Axl Rose's shit, that was a wasted 10 years of his life. Ten years and that's what you come up with?? Really? Seriously. It took him 10 years.

In order for Guns and Roses to exist successfully, you need izzy/slash writing the music and Axl performing it.

(On the same turn of the coin, although Velvet Revolver has some good tunes with the original members of GnR, they're no GnR with Scott as lead vocalist)

If Axl wants to continue writing music, fine (I think he did a song for that movie with Arnold saving the world from the devil) but please Axl... please... Drop the GnR name.

Those of us who are diehard fans of Guns and Roses are absolutely insulted that songs from a "Guns and Roses" album sound like that.

Maybe the album isn't 'that' bad.. for another band... but its nowhere near GnR caliber and shouldn't have the name attached to it.

(Kind of like Call of Duties not made by Infinity Ward. =p )

It really felt like Axl Rose punched me in the balls when I played the new CD for the first time.

Note: The Spaghetti Incident album left out intentionally. I deny the existence of that one.

The solo's and the musical compositions as a whole in their songs are just beautiful. I don't know many bands that can top it. Metallica is pretty good as well.

I don't know if I'd call Guns N Roses Metal or Heavy Metal. I'd call them more hard rock...Slipknot is metal to me

I animated him to attack in the air, mike just hasn't put it in yet! The bitch!

Hey guys i came back for a visit... might get lazy and stop coming by again though :( I don't really know yet :P Depends on my mood and i've been busy lately.

Also Gunz n Roses are good, but im not huge into classic rock so im going to stay out of this one. But FYI Chinese democracy is NOT their best album.
