How difficult would it be with Godot to add support for multiplayer?
>>653577 Depends on what you're planning to add in functionally, can't be too bad. >>653563 I was looking for the previous demo day demos but couldn't find any. Does anyone have archive of the last entries?
>>653578 So adding support for 4 players coop only would be fairly simple to do? Hmm that sounds good then. Also I got anudda question, for my game since I am planning to add Hexen styled hub maps I want that most sources of monsters are in form of eggs, queens, mothers and nests but the problem is how do I make the nests and monster periodically respawn when the map is not being loaded. When I have for example 50 maps do I need like all 50 maps loaded in ram or something so that those maps not currently visited by a player have some activity? Since for my tonk game I want it to make it as a action RPG and give the player the opportunity to grind for geld.
>>653583 well now you gotta look more into it since I have no idea how to do it, ask some godot guys about how to implement it. For the 2nd part a simplified guess is you can just have a function that reads the system's clock in-between entering levels, it store the system's or game's time when you leave a zone, and when you re-enter the zone, it will calculate the difference with current time. If it exceeds 1 min, it'll immediately spawn bunch of eggs from nest, if its 2 min it will immediately spawn eggs from nest and spawn some insects too, depending on how much time you'd want. The spawns will not move around in the background when you're not in the zone, they'll behave as if time has paused there. Keep in mind this is simply a guess and you should read about some actual games that has implemented this.
Hello Anons. I'm trying to make a minigolf game about my cat daughteru in Unity. But every time I make any sort of progress in learning Unity my Blender knowledge falls out of my head. At the same time any progress I make learning Blender makes Unity knowledge fall out of my head. Am I just too retarded to live? Will I ever be able to complete a game? I'm looking at the engine and I literally forgot everything I did to make this thing. I had to get some help from a coding friend at one point and I'm completely lost again. Will I ever finish a game?
>>653590 >well now you gotta look more into it since I have no idea how to do it, ask some godot guys about how to implement it. I guess it's going to be at the backlog then, since my game fundament is still not finished, I have a lot of features planned to add in. >For the 2nd part a simplified guess is you can just have a function that reads the system's clock in-between entering levels, it store the system's or game's time when you leave a zone, Hmm I guess I could try that by adding a day/night time cycle system where a game doesn't last longer than a month so basically when a month passes then its back to month 1, basically a perpetual 1 month only since I don't see the point to implement a full 12 month system. I guess that should be good enough. >Keep in mind this is simply a guess and you should read about some actual games that has implemented this. I had STALKER in mind where it has a A-Live system meaning that "unloaded" maps still show signs of activity which is the mostly visible in Clear Sky where NPC's try to take other territory and monsters migrate to different areas. I guess trying to clone Stalker system would be far more complex and out of my ability. Looks like then I have to stick with a simple timer then. Not that it matters that much since there won't be much interaction with monsters as all they do is just roaming around and waiting to get killed by the player and das about it. I mean my game is going to be open source as well so maybe in the future a competent programmer is willing to help me out or something I dont know.
Looking to getting into godot, but do I learn python/gdscript or do i go for C/gdnative? I want to make some sort of FPS game with online multiplayer/coop.
>>653577 In my experience if you didnt program your game from the outset to have multiplayer, adding it in later might be a bit of a hassle. Obviously it depends on the size of your game though.
>>653625 Well shit I have quite some code, does that mean I need to refactor all of my code just to add multiplayer support? Oh man this sucks.
I've HAD IT with these niggers! fucking discord trannies can't get it done right, waited more than 10 years for a new timesplitters game or TS on PC. I want to start a new community project for making our own timesplitters remake, we obviously need modelers, coders and texture artists but I think we can still use the original soundscape from the games. any volunteers? the plan is to start with TS1 and work our way through the games focusing on multiplayer, TS1 is a good starting point because it was made for multiplayer and has a decent amount of content.What should I get started with first? modeling the weapons or modeling the maps/mapmaker? modelling the characters is going to be a bitch as there is over 100 of them in TS1. OpenSplitters, right here, right now, present day, present time. we're hiring! If you want to join the project just make some contribution and post it ITT. hopefully we get some anons in here, make demo, then finish the game. if any of you fags have programming experience let us know we need it. >>653633 > does that mean I need to refactor all of my code just to add multiplayer support? Oh man this sucks. Yeah, you need to program a game from the ground up with multiplayer in mind or else you'll have a bad time, adding it in later can be difficult or impossible in some cases
>>653639 Ah hell that is some tough decision because I already refactored my game 2x times. one for code and one for moving on to 3D.
>>653595 maybe implement 1 thing at a time, not go overboard with adding features cuz its easy to get your game complicated and messy. And look for older games, they used to have some material for gamedeving. My idea came from how diablo2 handled respawns
if you are making an indie game for the love of fuck include some actual gameplay I can't count the number of indie games I've tried that turned out to just be a glorified walking simulator with zero game or interactivity

We are adding the faerie village soon, it will be a colony management minigame and you can employ faeries to work in your farm
>>653645 Well I played Diablo 1, Torchlight 1-2 and Grim Dawn now. I already have some vague idea what my tank action RPG game is going to be, and I implemented couple of features already such as a inventory addon (written by somebody else), a shop system and a basic weapon system. What I need now is a good Hexen like hub map structure and well a AI system which is not complete now because the code anon that wrote the code for me hasn't been there for a long time which sucks because he is a good fella. Then I have a basic GUI manager to fix a couple issues and well I'm kinda at the stage now where I can implement new assets now. >>653649 What are you on about? My game is going to include combat so I have no idea why you think mine would be a driving/walking simulator.
>make small amount of progress >procrastinate >give up >repeat
>>653682 If you made up a demo could you point to that? Might be easier to tell what your options for multiplayer are then.
>>653633 You may need to write remote versions of a lot of your functions. Which in my experience takes a while and debugging it takes forever. https://docs.godotengine.org/en/stable/tutorials/networking/high_level_multiplayer.html It really is important to program multiplayer in from the outset because it can completely change how you code everything.
>>653697 https://gitgud.io/Boris/fer-char-3d well I have a repo for this. >>653740 Oh damn looks likes its out of my option then, well shit. I thought adding 4 player Coop support would be trivial.
>>653681 What percentage are through through development, give or take? When you're getting towards the end I recommend trying to fix up those animations a little. That awkward turning as he's using the scythe looks real jank.
>>653759 Okay, 3D from the player's perspective makes things difficult because you have to have a separate camera for each player. You could try and do local multiplayer and then people could use something like Parsec to play online but if you haven't already laid the groundwork it would be a considerable amount of work. Not saying you can't do it but you might have to get creative. Were the other players each going to get their own tank or were they supposed to each occupy a crew position in a single tank?

>>653593 >Am I just too retarded to live? Depends if you know how to read/write; Literally start a diary that explains fully what was done and how. Not so you can read it again and learn again, but so that the need to explain in simple concise terms what was done forces some of it to cement inside your nogging. >>653595 Keep it simple or you will end up like me with a almost 5 year project full of cool features that somehow is still not a game. >>653770 33% I'd guess. We are stuffing as much low hanging fruit gameplay we can in as little time as possible right now. Like grindable skills with addicting feedback.
>>653845 >Okay, 3D from the player's perspective makes things difficult because you have to have a separate camera for each player. Wouldn't that happen automatically anyway because the Camera is a node? I didn't wrote my own camera code, or I am missing something? Like wouldn't it just be sufficient to constantly send packages of the player camera position? >You could try and do local multiplayer and then people could use something like Parsec to play online but if you haven't already laid the groundwork it would be a considerable amount of work. So that form multiplayer would work only like a LAN system where players need to be on the same network instead of their own network? Then I would have absolutely nobody to play with because I don't have any cool friends in my circle that is willing to play games with me ;_;. >Were the other players each going to get their own tank or were they supposed to each occupy a crew position in a single tank? One tank per player, maybe when its not too complicated a pet and companion system too, not quite sure about it. >>653857 Granted I didn't played Action RPG games yet as I started my tank project but now when I come to think of it I just want it pretty much like similiar to Diablo 2 and Torchlight 2 but with tanks instead and third person/first person camera style instead of top down camera. Feature wise I do try to keep it simple and not add too many advanced features I think, I have yet to see. Well I wasted 7 fucking years of my life time making microtank mod for GZDoom and when I look back at it its not quite polished and lacks a lot of content so I did pretty poorly with this GZDoom tank project. Though there was one anon from zzzchan that actually liked my microtank mod. For features I would like to have these things: -Being able to drive a tank (added) -Being able to walk on foot -basic crafting system for advanced items (higher tier items can only be acquired this way) -shop system for basic items -Hexen hub map system (still a much simpler system then a open world system which is probably a lot more complicated) as for the hub map system there would be though a small obstacle because I want it to be persistent as in when the player revisits the map it still retains the same state as the last time the player visited it. -advanced weapon system for the weapons I want to make several weapon types which each have a role and purpose, so far I have only implemented a magazine system and different ammunition types. So for the weapons I want it to be the highlight of the game to show that the player can use the weapons for variety of situations. -Basic quest system nothing too complicated, the NPCs will tell some bit of description and then some stuff happens based on the mission, some repeatable missions and main missions. -material and artifact based loots monsters won't drop any weapons or other items, only materials, components and artifacts which are used for crafting or for selling it off to make a profit out of it. As for the monsters, well I don't have any specific ideas and to be honest that is my weakest point because I am too stupid to write a AI code on my own since it seems to require higher maths which I lack, fuck if I would have only knew that earlier about this issue. I thought Godot is popular enough so that there is enough barebones addon to make games with it or something so that I don't have to do everything from scratch, so that I can spend more time on the other aspect of my game. Also are any of you anons versed in Digimon lore? I could use a advisor soon-ish for that soon. Or should I completely drop the Digimon idea and instead use various funny looking monsters from Sven Co-op custom maps?
>>653898 >should I completely drop the Digimon idea and instead use various funny looking monsters from Sven Co-op custom maps That all completely depends on whether or not you plan on selling your game. Keeping it free? Go with digimon. Want to sell? Use whatever you can find or make.
So, I'm going to make a multiplayer WW2 FPS in godot, how do I build it up from the start to include multiplayer and bot support? Also How could I differentiate the game from other tactical hardcore WW2 shooters?
>>654059 You do that with hard work and determination. Do you think you can do that?
>>654059 >How could I differentiate the game from other tactical hardcore WW2 shooters? Single player campaign with Axis protagonists
>>654028 I don't plan on selling my game, since I want to make it FOSS instead and hopefully some people are willing to donate to my patreon so that I can afford myself some more coffee or something. Besides if I did plan on selling my game then I wouldn't have setup a public gitgud repository.
>>654240 Then that answers your question. Also im not sure why your so bothered about lore. Digimon has never really kept its lore super consistent to begin with.
>>654240 Noble endeavor anon
>>654252 Oh okay. >Also im not sure why your so bothered about lore. Well part of what I enjoyed of UFO Aftermath, Spellcross and Torchlight is the lore so I like reading a little bit of text of why things are like that, even Doom 1 has a little bit of lore when you finish a map as it explains some background stuff. I'm not going to make my game into a story heavy game but at least a little bit of story going on for the curios player. >>654256 Thank you Anyon.

>>654269 Hmm, well I read a little bit of the 2 encyclopedia pages about digimon and they are sort of sparse with their lore and as another anon pointed out it is indeed inconsistent with its lore so thats going to be a bit of a roadblock there. >but just know that Juri canonically wants to fuck Leomon.

The worse I've gotten so far is a guy getting triggered over the idea that Steven being a male Gem can have control over female Gems because I explicitly mentioned it is sexist, but there's nothing wrong with it and it's natural in-game.

Surely it can't be as easy as making a game then just throwing up a website to sell it on, can it? >>654482 Whats wrong with blender? its made for making maps and other models, the only option you have really, unless you buyfag some shit software made by kikes then you're shit out of luck for any alternatives
>>654575 I don't like that Blender doesn't have a several settings for changing the snap size so that its easier to create consistent sized models such as in scale of 2, 5 or 10, editing terrain with it is a pain in the ass and I don't like it at all how the camera controls. I want a damn FPS camera control for editing maps which is much better then whatever stupid controls it is using, I did used the fly/walk mode on Blender but for some reason as soon I press other keys it reverts to default camera control.
Should I stay low poly or should I go for higher poly counts? Does it even matter? Going to try and finish off the set of weapons then move onto tanks/vehicles. little experience modeling humans so that may turn out ugly.
>>654878 are you making a tactical game or something?
>>654878 Low poly is kind of in right now. A lot of indies have moved on from pixel art to low poly I think in order to differentiate themselves but also cash in on ps1 nostalgia.
>>653595 It's obvious that stalker doesn't have as elaborate system as you make it out to be. Think of it in terms of complexity and development time. Would you spend your precious time implementing mob per mob detailed system, or would you go with a random x mob_count. I recall seeing bandits occupying parts that were previously owned by soldiers. Kinda unbelievable for a real "live experience", don't you think? >>653682 Take a look at famous Warcraft 3 custom maps: tanks wars and ship wars. Steal an idea or two about auto shooting cannons.

If that is a secret give us a percentage, please. do you draw it all by yourself or do you have an artist from California?
>>655495 >It's obvious that stalker doesn't have as elaborate system as you make it out to be. Think of it in terms of complexity and development time. Would you spend your precious time implementing mob per mob detailed system, or would you go with a random x mob_count As I have said before I just keep it simple and use a week/month based cycle timer and that's it, which can be further influenced by using obstacle reduction rounds against nest to delay their respawn. >I recall seeing bandits occupying parts that were previously owned by soldiers. Kinda unbelievable for a real "live experience", don't you think? Those soldiers were probably fresh out of the grinder, so no wonder they got their shit pushed down from vodka chugging bandits tbh. >Take a look at famous Warcraft 3 custom maps: tanks wars and ship wars. Steal an idea or two about auto shooting cannons. I think less autism is fun and has a wider reach of an audience. Don't have Warcraft 3 and isn't OG Warcraft 3 now fucked because Blizzard is trying to sell to the golems their refunded edition? I don't want to make the weapons /k/ tier autism but I mean that using different types of ammunition have their purpose as well as elemental related damage, so you can see that a monster explodes in a fireball when struck by a fire elemental enhanced ammo or monsters struck by poison ammo explodes in a poisonous gas cloud that lingers for a while, I mean those sort of things. One of things that bothered with RPG games how boring their elemental damage system was, they didn't caused any special animation or whatever when a enemy got hit or killed by one which sucks and is some missed opportunity. Funnily enough Fallout 3 did that better so when you cause critical hits with the plasma or laser rifle gun they either melt down in a red sparks or melt down in green globs.
>>654575 >Surely it can't be as easy as making a game then just throwing up a website to sell it on, can it? This nigger thinks it's easy. But yes, just make a game and put something up somewhere. Put it on Newgrounds or Itch or something. If you're aiming for something broader try contacting a pubisher. Also look into indie game channels to look at methods for marketing your game. Some youtube channels like hosting showcase segments where a bunch of games are shown off.

But mostly because Patreon doesn't outright shows you how much you are losing. I'm making 1000$+ this month for the first time, and they are taking 85$, so far (maybe it's more once the month is over). And previous times, where I was making like 500$ they took around 50$ or so, but in my patreon, it shows I was making those 500$, I only know I'm losing that 50$ because I check the statistics they show. I personally don't mind the commission they take as much as I hate their retarded censorship. >or do you have an artist from California? I think my artist is from California, actually. The biggest problem for me with patreon and paypal at the moment is that I'm a spic, I can't withdraw money directly from it, I need to use third parties, and that takes so much money from me that it's honestly sad.

Fine if there is no other option left then I'll try to make maps with Blender then. Oh man this is going to be fun. Is there for Blender at least some kind of addon that makes making levels easier or something? Such as FPS styled camera, grid snapping which can be changed from a drop down menu like Trenchbroom does and objects management like group within group of objects so that I can do fine editing of the objects or move it as a whole, that's one of the few things that Trenchbroom did right.
>>656256 >Trenchbroom I just had a look at that, and it's not the right tool for the job. The Quake family of engines are gear towards indoor environments and buildings. Creating overland terrain in that just looks like it will be a world of pain. What you want is a heightmap based terrain editor. Did you have a look at this plugin for Godot? https://github.com/Zylann/godot_heightmap_plugin From my brief reading of their docs it looks like it will be good for creating overworld terrain.
>>656408 >I just had a look at that, and it's not the right tool for the job. The Quake family of engines are gear towards indoor environments and buildings. Creating overland terrain in that just looks like it will be a world of pain. Hmm well Half Life 1 has some outdoor section and it uses the Quake engine too, so initially when I used Trenchbroom I hoped it would be suitable for outdoor environment too, looks like I was wrong and as you said its a world of pain. I tried making a shitty village map in Trenchbroom and the result was crap since I couldn't get the terrain and cliffs to look correct. >What you want is a heightmap based terrain editor. Did you have a look at this plugin for Godot? I did looked at this plugin but for some reason when I made a terrain with it, it caused terrible performance on my end I think I set the terrain size to 1024x1024 or 512x512 I forget which and it was just the terrain and the player tank and that's it.

Stupid nodev question, but I wanna make a Postal 2 clone with a much more expanded and detailed gore system. What should I be working with? I find working with UE and Unity iffy because of all the info that they ask for, but Godot's 3D also sucks ass.
BTW, I am not this post (>>656256) so please don't make assumptions of me, life is already absolute shit, don't need more of that
>>659982 Just use godot bro, if SoF2 can have a detailed gore system on ps2/xbox of all things then godot can easily handle it. >postal 2 clone you better make it fun and have a coop mode with 16+ players faggot, make it super edgy like postal 1, include a school that you can shoot up or an anime convention you can mustard gas. What are your ideas for this postal 2 clone? what country are you going to set it in? are you going to make it cute and funny? gonna include some epic maymays like happy merchant or niggerz? whatever you do you better make it to be able to run on toasters so everyone can play, godot is good for that too, unity is literally spyware and unreal is bloatware that may also be chink spyware

I don't want to be an ideas man but it is just "incel shoots women" the game. You get past the levels by killing women. And in between levels you can see scenes where the frustration against women is explained. I won't go into details because everyone has great ideas, but they mean nothing with no action >you better make it fun and have a coop mode with 16+ players faggot, make it super edgy like postal 1, include a school that you can shoot up or an anime convention you can mustard gas.

>>660488 I have nothing to report. I have halted work on my project that I posted about here to finally finish another game I was working on with a buddy for a couple-few years. I'm going to take a bunch of time this month to polish up FPRogue real good before I put in on steam and wherever else. Got a business number and name so now I have to do the paper work to get my steam account going. >>660360 Anon I see no mention of digimon. What the hell happened? Also >Main Menu (WiP) You can at least finish your damn main menu anon come on now
>>659982 The game engine is a question that comes later. You should be focusing instead on creating lots of models'n'textures. You can use Blender for that. In all honesty you can use blender for creating a level too! I see your nodev, because you don't know yet that you must learn modelling/texturing/drawing yourself or hire an artist. btw dismemberment is easy to program, like this: create a signal for an object on entering the body; deduct some health from this body part; if the result is a big negative number, replace the model with the gibbed version, or detach a single object from the parent. >the performance was fairly abysmal It will always be if you're just a filthy code monkey. Let the process logic sleep for awhile, don't make every enemy "think" every frame. If your model has gazillion polygons - optimize them, no engine is gonna chew them all. Learn from the best, but don't shy away looking at the rest. The cum chalice guy is a good example. He never wished to learn how to think logically. That must be the main reason why he lost all of his patreon neetbux. He is an idiot. It's not that he failed spectacularly here and there, It's because he consistently refuses to improve and accept any help from anyone. My advice: pick a specialty in the game design and stick to it, gather a team, and just fucking DO IT! >>660488 Alright HH guy, currently I'm struggling with the finding an artist, where does one find such a guy? In the meantime I'm developing your mum's backdoor.
>>660569 >Anon I see no mention of digimon. What the hell happened? Got a cease and desist letter from Bandai Namco Haha just kidding., uhh no idea how to hell I should reference them without specially calling them as digimons, the reason being is that I want the player during the first stage of the conflict not being aware what he is facing against to. >You can at least finish your damn main menu anon come on now Meh, I am terrible at anything graphics related. I tried improving the mainmenu graphics but it just ended up looking very cheesy.
>>660574 >I'm struggling with the finding an artist, 2D or 3D? I can be your artist for the small price of ZERO dollarydoos and a half eaten hotpocket, im shit at modelling but I try. What kind of art do you need? guns? cars? those are easy to do, humans however are pretty hard in my opinion. >where does one find such a guy? If I had to guess maybe some online ad space where people post their portfolios and then you contact them by email or something along those lines
>>660365 And since you posted your I guess I'll post mine. Pretty haphazard and scatterbrained. Some of it is out of date as well. https://a.uguu.se/VsULUbn.odt
>>660590 Damn thats a lot of mechanic, well I can only hope you have enough time to implement all of this. I don't think I am going to play this type of game at all since I'm not fond of rogues/rogues like (or whatever the hell they are named nowadays). Since I don't like losing shit when dieing, its already bad enough that Diablo 1/2 pulls this shit tbh. Hmmm, I should rework on my documentation too but as I said before I don't feel like it right now trying to rewrite it, add new ideas and maybe trashing some old ones. Oh I have some new idea which is the ability for the player to customize weapons and ammunition. One thing what I liked about OpenMW is that it lets me enchant bolts to add additional spell effects to it as well enchanting weapons to make it even more powerful. Hmmm that sort of "Enchanting" system wouldn't be that hard to do, at least for the GUI part, the difficult part however would be items sprites because I want them to be easily distinguishable and particle effects so that for example a APHE infused with incendiary mixtures has a different particle effect than regular APHE. When I am going to add elemental/special effects to my ammunition then I want a special effects for explosions and giblets too, like for example if a enemy is struck down with chemical weapons then it should look like he is going to melt in a gooey slime, kinda like how Fallout 3 does with laser and plasma weapons. It might be a lot of work for this but I don't want that elemental effects look boring, so if a player likes using incendiary or chemical weapons he should be also "rewarded" with special deaths against his opponent.

Anyone have any resources on low resolution texturing? like a PS1 style? what were the system restrictions on PSX textures again?
>>660959 This guy is talking about making a PS1 style fantasy console and covers a lot of the PS1 aesthetic: https://www.david-colson.com/2021/11/30/ps1-style-renderer.html PS1 had a max texture file size of 256x256 with 24bit colour depth. I can't find any info on it but I'm pretty sure there was a colour palette limit per texture too.
>>660586 Thank you for the offer, kind stranger, but i must decline. I'm doing this fun educational activity not for monies, but for cummies! Looking to bless the world with this fetish of mine. Amen! If i (or an artist) manage to get a partial investment return then it's extra cool. 2D isometric stuff shouldn't be that hard to create, yet here i am, struggling to get some paid asset flips of okay quality and of a single style. This may be a mistake of mine, just wanted to be "not like the other girls" with their RPG maker asset flips with a top down view. The game will be EROTIQUE in the style of rpg maker erotic games. So i should probably head to pixiv and catch some poorly received talent. Of course I'm not gonna pay with "possibilities", I'm gonna pay with greenbacks, even though I'm dirt poor and hazardously thin by American standards. >>660581 Forgive me, God of programming, but you don't have to make everything perfect! Make it good enough instead, if the stuff sticks, then you try to improve it. Take a look at mine craft for example: the mechanics are dumb simple, and that's why they are loved by millions. As a professional code monkey myself i would tell you this much. Like John Carmack said: create, don't overthink and see what works.
>>660874 Yeah roguelikes arent for everyone. But im going for a more old school approach where your character can be resurrected if you can haul your body out with another character or your items get inherited by your next character. Things like that.

Though if I am not mistaken there wasn't any noob friendly 3D engines that I could jump to back then, no idea well there was Ogre 3D and Irrlicht I guess but those are more for advanced programmer which I am not. Besides as for code, I'll try to make my code somehow readable I don't know how true that is because so far yet nobody gave me any feedback on my code at the moment or at least I can not recall it, I admit I made a grave mistake of not commenting my code more thoroughly which would benefit everyone. Well shit I guess when Godot 4 comes around the come that means I have to refactor my damn game anyway because of the major changes they do with GDScript, g*d damn it. >>661129 Looks like I wont get your sweet sweet 15 dollars this time since I haven't done enough shit for my game. >>661124 Oh okay that's a interesting concept I think.

Meh made some shit. No fucking idea how the hell I can improve my texturing, is there any better tool for 3D Painting then 3D Coat? I don't like it how limited 3D Coat painting tools are and Blender Painting tools is so barebones it might as well not be there at all. Also how hard is it to learn character modelling and animation?
>>662463 >how hard is it to learn character modelling and animation? Character modelling is quite hard, animation on the other hand is quite easy when you get the hang of it as its literally just moving things frame by frame then allowing the program to fill in between each frame. What kind of game are you making anyways?
>>662472 >Character modelling is quite hard Oh god, so it takes 6 million years in Blender to just to become pro efficient at making character models? Damn man, no idea how the hell I am supposed to do that then when I am a one man army. I guess then its not a bad idea then ripping of character models from other games/mods I guess, the only problem would be the fucking art style as well as polygon count, hmmm well shit. If I had only another modeller on my team at least but alas it wont be happening it seems. >What kind of game are you making anyways? A tank versus corrupted/evil digimon action RPG game. The basic premise is that it's set during the 90's (Around the time of Digimon Adventure and where the first digimon tamers get teleported to the digimon dimension) with the main exception that the lord of evil digimons (devimon? I forget, the one digimon who is producings black gears) has gained over times a much greater power which is enough for him to already start havoc on several european places. And it is up to the player to investigate what the hell is going on and making new allies or foes during the course of the campaign.
>>662477 >so it takes 6 million years in Blender to just to become pro efficient at making character models? It depends on how detailed you want your characters, if you want some low poly shit just look at half life for reference, since that game was able to have facial animations and other cool shit with very low poly models before the HD update >digimon tank game weird concept but ok
>>662489 >It depends on how detailed you want your characters, if you want some low poly shit just look at half life for reference, since that game was able to have facial animations and other cool shit with very low poly models before the HD update Hmm I was more thinking along the lines of UT2004 characters which seems to have a good balance between low polygon count and texturing details. OG Half Life 1 looks a bit way too low poly for my taste. >weird concept but ok Is it really that bad of a concept? The next alternative would just to add fantasy monsters instead such as slimes and skeletals and what else there is out there on fantasy creatures, that and some weird looking monster design from custom maps.
>>662493 >The next alternative would just to add fantasy monsters instead such as slimes and skeletals and what else there is out there on fantasy creatures, that and some weird looking monster design from custom maps. I'd say go full sci-fi and have aliens and robots and kaiju and stuff. Not to different from digimon if you go that route.
>>662656 hmmm got any example pictures of what you had in mind? Keep in mind my modelling skill is shit and I need to learn how to do character modelling, rigging and animation works which is going to be a long time. I made a couple of shitty looking mechs for my micro tank project long time ago since that one is easier to do since it still falls under hard surface category. I guess since PS1 styled games are the hottest trend now and couple of jewtube tutorial videos are being made for it I could try learning from that too but with the difference I try with a higher polygon and texture resolution count because I don't want it to be that low poly. Maybe one day I can imitate the art style of Unreal Tournament 2004...

>>662668 Go the route of something like edf. Giant spiders and ants and things aren't too different from a dokugumon and grey aliens aren't that different from a vademon and any giant dinosauresque kaiju has a digimon analogue. That picture makes edf look impressive but if you look at some footage of it the game is super jank and not too worried about high fidelity models since its more important to have a lot on screen at one time. So if you go the ps1 route you probably wouldn't have much of a problem with having a lot on screen as well. I guess at the end of the day what I'm saying is don't worry too much about how your models look. As long as you can tell what they are and the game is fun you can get away with a lot of jank.

>>662674 >Giant spiders and ants and things aren't too different from a dokugumon and grey aliens aren't that different from a vademon and any giant dinosauresque kaiju has a digimon analogue. Well I thought those digimon creatures have a interesting design this is why initially I wanted to go for this route, though if that one tor anon comes back and sees I don't have any digimon creatures in my game now he would probably end up disappointed, maybe I don't know I am not him. >Go the route of something like edf. I don't think I can make huge battles like in EDF or Serious Sam besides I prefer smaller scale conflict but in turn better tools for mob control and the like, basically being more aware what type of monsters the player is facing against since that is going to be a bit important. When I was younger I used to play the shit outta RPG invasion servers on UT2004 that and UT99 monster hunt (no RPG mod for it though). The reason I want to go for this route of a typical battle is because I don't want that the player just hoards tons of high explosive shells and hand it out like candies so to speak, to make different types of ammunition more important but I try also not to make it like in Doom 4/Eternal (I forget which) where player constantly switch weapons just to deal against a single monster, so I need to find a balance here... Hmm well on second thought it wouldn't matter that much anyway since the player is driving a tank thus he can always use a heavy weapon and a light weapon, and if I managed to implement other types of vehicles then things would be a bit more different too. I am not quite sure how many monsters there are going to be on screen hopefully between 20-50 that should be plenty to kill with more monster spawning in temporarily when the "older" monsters dies. >but if you look at some footage of it the game is super jank and not too worried about high fidelity models since its more important to have a lot on screen at one time. So if you go the ps1 route you probably wouldn't have much of a problem with having a lot on screen as well. Well UT2004 looks fairly dated too and its not super detailed either since its a awfully old game by now, though admitelly as I mentioned before my texturing skill sucks as you have probably seen from my attempt at making a axe model so I guess I am pretty much stuck with PS1 style but in cartoon or some crap, meh. Sucks being too poor affording a good modeller I guess. >So if you go the ps1 route Yeah I probably just end up doing that.
>tfw made zero progress How do I get motivated? I really want to make this game yet I can't seem to just hunker down and work on it for a few hours a day. it's sorta hard doing low poly and making it look good at the same time, can't wait to try my hand at low poly soldiers!

>>662764 I guess you're right, I should just focus on making game. gotta get it together! Thinking about leaving texturing to last, so I do the animations and other stuff before texturing, or should I at least color them in a bit to make it less boring? I can always change it later.
>>662788 You can color them so that you can tell things apart but if you can't texture them then you may need to get somebody else to do that later on.

So I've been trying to figure out how implement this: https://yal.cc/top-down-bouncing-loot-effects/ in unity, but I can't really figure out how to convert the game maker logic into c#, specifically the vertical gravity part. Any hints / tips / solutions would be appreciated.
(53.95 KB 1280x720 demoday.jpg)

>>664152 As for gravity, I don't recall whichever position is up or down so either the x or y axis, basically you want to keep track of its original height value and use another variable where the object goes higher and descends to the ground based on a certain speed but never below its original height value, so you could use that to implement fake gravity I think. I did something similar for my 2D tank game in order to implement falling bombs where I just used another variable as a offset variable and reduce it to a certain speed towards 0 so that the bombs "position" goes back to its original height value it spawned from, I forget though the exact details of my implementation. Maybe these code will help you out, I don't know. Its written in Godot GDScript though so you need to translate it to c# or whatever language you use. https://gitgud.io/Boris/fer-char-2d/-/blob/master/Core/Weapons/BombBase.gd https://gitgud.io/Boris/fer-char-2d/-/blob/master/Base/Scripts/AirSupport_Bomber.gd >>664358 No demoday for me this time, meh.

It also kind of depends on what your goal is, if your goal is to be a super awesome 3d artist and work at pixar or some shit then it's going to be really disheartening because of how far away it is. if your goal is to make some low poly assets for a game you're working on then you'll be able to get there a lot faster.

>>671372 >What's a good way to... The answer is a non-helpful it depends. It depends on your engine, what language you use, what libraries you can use, your experience, flexibility neeed, etc. Without further information it's hard to say what would be a good strategy for you, but... >Is JSON a stupid idea? No, It's not. JSON is human readable and editable, and has been around for awhile, so it should be easy to find tools and libraries to read and write it. A potential encounter JSON file could look something like this: { "slimes_2_rat_1": { "monsters": [ { "id": "slime", "quantity": 2, "level": 1 }, { "id": "rat", "quantity": 1, "level": 2 } ], "locales": ["grass", "forest"], "tags_required": [], "tags_forbidden": ["slime_repellent"], "xp_bonus": 0, "gold_bonus": 0, "loot_bonus": [ { "item": "quality_rat_skin", "chance": 0.25, "quantity": 1 } ] } } } The above was cobbled together by hand, so beware typos.
I found out in unity if you want to use OnPointerEnter/OnMouseHover functions, whether in script or from the Inspector menu, it needs something with a graphics component which act as the "trigger area" for that object. So when you normally have Buttons or any object, the image for button is the "trigger area", and as big that image is, so will be where the OnPointer function will be activated. I this found out while trying to make the area around the button be the trigger point for a method, found out that making the object itself bigger did nothing, but the image (or any graphics component) does. If you want a invisible trigger area around a regular sized button, add the regular image component, make it bigger, and turn transparency to 0.

>>672943 Alright frien. Hello AGDG, I am GigaDev, the creator of the infamous GigaMaidens. Now in case you don't know what this is I'll just give you a brief primer. GigaMaidens is a 1-on-1 fighting game I've been trying to develop for the past 9 or so years, since before Skullgirls was even announced. It is a 3D fighting game in the vein of SoulCalibur, and heavily inspired by early into 3D fighting games, such as Tech Romancer, Bloody Roar, Tobal no. 2 and a few others. The key identifying factor here is that these early 3D games were a lot more stylish and crazy than the relatively grounded martial arts of games like DOA and Tekken. So they had things like screen filling lasers, explosive projectiles, characters jumping like they were on the moon, and huge launchers into gigantic air combos. Despite the art I posted above it is not a 2D fighting game, that is just one of various pieces of art I commissioned of my game and characters just for fun. The idea of the game is that all the playable characters are giant women who wreck cities as they fight. The game takes place in a universe with characters I've had in my head since I was in junior high, alongside characters from one of my longtime artist friends. Over the years I managed to get two builds done with the help of various freelancers and subcontractors I worked with, but I had to stop because I wasn't seeing great returns for the money I was sinking into it. I am still committed to getting this game done but I am going to have to try a few different approaches. The videos you see here are of the two builds I've had made. The first one, we'll call it the Nightmare Sachi build, was was made between 2015-2018 with the help of various freelancers in Unreal Engine 4.19. I tried getting it to run properly but I only just remembered that you had to type something into the console to get both players to spawn and for the game to begin functioning, and I forgot what that console command is. I'm also unable to get in contact with the coder who did this for me. I'm ashamed and I should've written it down somewhere. If you want to see how the game looks like when it is functioning, I have that footage on ZOG-Sanctioned Brainwashing Website. https://vid.puffyan.us/watch?v=U9nGu_wda3g The second video is of a version of the game I made with the help of professional subcontractors, which we'll call the IBS Build, named after the initials of their studio and also after the chronic disease I got while making these. It's not as pretty as the Nightmare Sachi build, but it has a lot more functionality and backend code for things like: >Menus >Hit detection >8-way running >Hit states >Various movement and gameplay mechanics – crouching, guarding, special meters, etc. >Special moves >Win/lose state >Pause menu >Groundwork code for GGPO netplay I was going to attach it here but the file is too large. Thankfully I also have a YT version. https://vid.puffyan.us/watch?v=8AKwA2BDync I'll have these demos zipped up and ready for you anons to kick the tires whenever the next demo day rolls around. Now as for the current status of GigaMaidens, it's going to take a lot more than my simple nodev ass to get the game finished. I'm going to eventually apply for funding to get it done, but in order to do that, people who provide funding prefer it if you have completed games under your belt, so I've put GM aside and I'm presently focusing on my catgirl minigolf game (which I've posted about a couple of times). Yes, I am autistic and have many OCs because this is a universe I've been building for decades. I'm trying my best. I sincerely hope you like my characters and the stories I've made for them whenever I'm able to share them with you. Lastly, I have a blog where you can read all about my projects and characters. I post various things like artwork, music and lore about my characters, and I try to update it at least once a month. https://www.gigamaidens.moe

Look them up. >Any idea of a timeframe or a goal? Do you think you might be finished with most of it in 3-4 years? I'd love that, but I can't promise it. I'm terrible at coding and I would need a lot of help. Maybe if I got a team of Anons to really help me out, but they'd have to be kinda passionate about fighting games and willing to listen to me. I've tried learning coding for years. I just don't know how to use any of what I've learned to get what I want out of it. I'd love to be able to do the whole game on my own but I'm not sure I can. I'm primarily an artfag with a tiny amount of coding knowledge and not nearly enough to be able to make the whole thing by myself. After I come back to GM the plan is to overhaul the graphics to give them more of a PS1/early Dreamcast aesthetic, low poly but high detail with pixel aliasing and a bit of cel shading. I like the clean and shiny pseudo-realistic anime style we had on the models before this but I think it might be too high maintenance to make everyone that way.

>>673633 >>673636 Another idea I'd add to charging, which also double as a QoL feature, is to accelerate the speed of the charge the longer you hold it. While there is an appeal to a steady charge, an accelerating charge would be more respectful to player time, without compromising the satisfaction of getting something done in a burst.
>>673661 I disagree, being able to precisely get the charge to the level you need is more important, you wont be using lv10 charge all the time. Charging is already a huge time save by itself.
>>674118 How about you click to activate your swing and then drag to get the exact level you want? So then if you just want a full power swing you just swipe your mouse real quick and you're done.

I had saved this screencap a while back, can someone explain State Machine as explained here? Im too retarded to understand
>>678988 Without all the dumb unity bullshit I can tell you that a state machine is simply a function in a loop with some if statements in it that check the "state". The state literally being just a number so that the right function in the loop runs. You get from one state to another by checking whatever you need to check within a states function. So it looks like this: int state = 0 func SMachine(): #runs in your process function or your game loop or whatever you have if(state == 0): character is idle if(left key pressed) state = 1 elif(state = 1): character is moving left etc etc The issue with state machines is that they get unwieldy when they get large. If you do do all your state checking within each state it can be cumbersome. If you start to do some state checking outside of the machine, like in my example if you checked for key presses somewhere else, you might get state changes at unexpected times. That said they can work fine for things that are a bit more complicated, its just that its a bit harder to keep track of all of your states when you start having lots of them and lots of ways to jump between them.
(53.67 KB 510x346 N41tlLG-220026578.jpg)

>>678995 so statemachine is a big if-else statement that runs continuously? What does the screencap says that warrants so many classes? Why is there a State class with virtual? Is it actually useful to use state machine?
>>678995 At least in Godot, you can use a script to switch the script on something. Thus a state machine is separated into a dozen different scripts referencing a single script with common functions like move_to(tile) somewhere. Much easier to read. The trick with state machines is that you model them. There's modeling software out there that can generate graphs from text input, just run a script that checks each state for connections to other states and auto-generate a visual representation.
>>679011 People like to over complicate state machines. I don't know much about unity but I've seen with godot some examples where each state in a state machine is its own node in a scene with its own script. I'm not a big unity guy but that pic looks like it does something a bit similar where the statemachine and the state are classes and the class checks isrunning to actually run whatever behavior. I find it all superfluous. At the top of the pic it looks like he's warning about what I said before where too many checks can become cumbersome but he acts like he's solved the problem by just separating the same state machine into separate files which in my opinion solves nothing. You still have to do those checks eventually, now they're just spread across multiple scripts. Anyway there is nothing a regular old state machine can't do that a fancy one can. If you have trouble keeping things neat then just do something like this. func Machine(): if(state == 0): State0() elif(state == 1): State1() etc etc func State0(): Do state0 stuff state = State0Checks() func State0Checks(): var newstate = 0 if(pressed key): state = 1 return newstate
>>679011 I guess I'll answer your questions better. >so statemachine is a big if-else statement that runs continuously? Yes. Generally once per frame or loop or what have you. >What does the screencap says that warrants so many classes? What I said before. People code them poorly and then think the solution is to code them poorly across multiple files >Why is there a State class with virtual? when a function is virtual that means it should be overridden by a inherited class. You can see there when he says he made a player version of it he overrode the State function to fit the players needs. >Is it actually useful to use state machine? Yeah state machines are fine. They work best for simpler things like monsters that run around and stuff. The problems come in when you have things from outside the machine interrupt it. Like if you have a monster get hit by the player and stun it. I mean you really could have the monster check in every state if its being hit but its easier when the player just tells the monster that its been hit and puts it into the stunned state. Its easier that way, but like I said when you start doing that you can get unexpected behaviour that will need to be debugged but in the end can work just fine if your logic is sound.
>>679030 >>679025 thanks for your input. I will use state machine now to plan character movements, I guess I'll have to watch more videos of it to actually make it into use.
(27.38 KB 423x328 1661089747740544.jpg)

>>679086 I just realized I made a typo here >>679025 it should be if(pressed key): newstate = 1 return newstate But anyway, after looking at your pic one time I think I can explain the main difference between it and a regular state machine exactly. Whereas in the old way you would do it like this somewhere within your player class in a physics loop or something: if(state == 0): do state0 stuff The way your pic shows would end up looking more like this: PlayerController mystatemachine = new PlayerController() //first actually instance your controller class mystatemachine.Start() //this starts up the state machine within the controller And then somewhere if a loop you would run mystatemachine.Update() // this actually runs the states code within the machine It must be a dumb unity thing because I don't know why you would wrap your state machine in so many layers like that. But to explain it more fully: To begin with he should have showed the State class first. We can see that it has one virtual function called updateState. It looks like this is where all of your behaviour will be. Technically its the same as where I wrote "do state0 stuff" above. The reason its virtual is so that you can later add in the behaviour when you override it. Otherwise it would never do anything. Also if I'm remembering my C# right, this class should actually be declared "public abstract class State" since it looks like you would always ever inherit from it and never make a plain State class instance on its own. We can see this when he makes his PlayerDefaultState class further below since it inherits from State. He overrides the updateState function and adds his new behaviour. But to actually get the state running, first we need our state machine. So now at the top we have our state machine class. It contains a State variable that holds the currently running state and a isrunning bool variable that tells the machine to run when you want. It also contains a list of all of its states called mstates but it looks like he forgot to declare it. So it looks like when you would make your state machine like he does, you would first make new classes for all of your states and put them in a list to pass to the machine. So whereas in the old way you would just make your check for the state and then run its code, in his way you would make a PlayerStunnedState class, a PlayerAttackingState class, a PlayerFlyingState class and so on. Then you would put them into a list and pass that to the machine. Then set the machines mCurrentState with the one you want at the moment. The machine has an Update function that runs the updateState function on the state, thus giving us our desired behaviour. Now at the very bottom we see that he has set up his PlayerController class to hold a statemachine and his inherited new state for the machine. He has a Start function that calls a SetState function, that was never declared, for the statemachine but its pretty easy to tell that it would probably set the machines current state to the mdefaultstate that he passes it. So to summarize: First you would make a bunch of new inherited classes to give them their own behaviour. Then you put them into a list and then pass that list to your statemachine. Then you give your machine a default state and run Start to set that default state as the currently running state. Then, presumably once per loop, you would run Update function on your playercontroller which runs the Update function on its statemachine which runs the UpdateState function on your state. That last line is the most egregious in my opinion. He also has an Init function for his state machine which calls an enterState function that's never declared in the State class and honestly I'm not quite sure what it would do since its not really in the nature of a state machine for individual states to need prep or anything. You should just be able to set the new one to be current state and run it. But I'm not against improvement. So after looking at this I think we can improve the old way a little bit. If whatever language you're using supports variables holding function references we can do something like this. var currentstate = null #rather than being an int that we check to figure out our state, this will hold the state function itself func State0(): do state0 stuff currentstate = State0Checks() func State1(): do state1 stuff currentstate = State1Checks() func State0Checks(): if(pressed key): currentstate = State1 #rather than set a state variable as an int we get a reference to the state function that we want and then in our main loop we would run currentstate.Run() #run the function for the state we wanted This way we avoid having to check each case, if 0, if 1, if 2, etc etc.
Is there anyone with knowledge of Javascript and RMMV willing to help me out with an issue I am having with creating a simple plugin? I want to rip text from a file, hunt down the specific variable by actorID, type, and have an RNG call a random message within that category. Whenever I call it in a script for a common event, the damn thing keeps giving me a referenceError saying my function is not defined. (CallVictoryQuote). The call itself is supposed to just grab text from the file since I have the YEP plugin, and then another plugin that calls common events from an actor's notebox. The Common Event call would go like this: var actors = $gameParty.members(); var partySize = actors.length; var num = Math.floor(Math.random() * partySize); var msg = CallVictoryQuote(actors[num]._actorId, "exp"); $GameMessage.setFaceImage('Anonymous',0); $GameMessage.setBackGround(1); $GameMessage.setPosition(2); $GameMessage.add(msg); this.setWaitMode('message'); The JS is in this link: https://jsfiddle.net/0pzdtLbk/ Mock me if you must, I feel like a grug brain.

>>680570 I think you meant for this: var lines = string.split("\n"); to be this: var lines = file.split("\n"); >angle brackets Why? Aside from creating some bastardized XML like file format, I don't see a need for them. Also, your code doesn't clean up trailing angle brackets, so numbers won't at parse as you expect. split(":").trim() Two bugs. First split() returns an array, so trim() won't work (that needs a string). Second is that split() should be limited to splitting at the first colon, otherwise messages with a colon willl get chopped off. Fixed version: split(":", 1)[1].trim() Rather than figure out other problems with the code, I went and coded my own version of GetQuote() and changed the file format to something I think is more sensible. function pickRandom(array_in) { return array_in[Math.floor(Math.random() * array_in.length)]; } function GetQuote(file_string, actor_id, type_id) { var lines = file_string.split("\n"); var line = ""; var linesplit = []; var key = ""; var value = ""; var current_type_id = "unknown"; var current_actor_id = -1; var messages = []; for (var i = 0; i < lines.length; i++) { line = line[i].trim(); if(line.length <= 0) {continue;} //empty line, skip if(line.startsWith("#")) {continue;} //comment, skip linesplit = line.split(":", 1); if(linesplit.length < 2) {continue;} //bad line, should log a warning key = linesplit[0].trim().toLowerCase(); value = linesplit[1].trim(); if(key == "actor") {current_actor_id = parseInt(value)} else if(key == "type") {current_type_id == value} else if(key == "message") { if(current_actor_id == actor_id && current_type_id == type_id) { messages.push(value); } } else {continue;} //unknown key, should log a warning } if(messages.length <= 0) { return "MISSING QUOTE! actor_id:" + actor_id.toString() + " type:" + type_id; } else { return pickRandom(messages); } } Beware bugs and typos in the above code. I've only typed it out and haven't tested it. Your example file would now look like this: #Our example #Lines starting with # are comments and ignored. Actor: 1 Type: exp Message:We did it! message:I just wanted to play video games. Type: level Message:This feels alright. message:<WordWrap>So... this is the true power of shitposting! Type: drops Message:Nice! I love free shit. message:Where the FUCK are the video games!

Hell I couldn't get the damn function calls to work until I finally got rid of that IIFE container and it finally started to run without that damn "Not Defined" error that kept cropping up. I also had to change the file reading function like this: function getFileString() { var myText = ""; const fs = require('fs') return fs.readFileSync("data/victoryquotes.txt", "utf8") }; If this works out I could add parameters for file path and file name, but for now this works. At the moment it breaks when it tries to trim the text but I'm slowly making progress! Thank you very much!

I got difficulties with making games from Youtube tutorials as I kept making stupid errors that made me start over I may have ADHD, but I feel there's a better tutorial than that and idk which one. >inb4 subscriptions I got the permanent license for it before they Jew it out, yet I didn't use it much due to life issues until I'm motivated to try learn it now.
>>692545 I'd say just practice every day. Make something small which you are comfortable with and then slowly work your way towards it. if anything you need to learn a bit to do some problem solving like divide a task into smaller problems and try to approach one of them at a time till the whole is complete. A advice that I should heed myself more often too. As for the tutorials well I have never used udemy before so I cannot vouch for their quality, if you have the chance to torrent it well I guess you could take a look as you are not paying for it. I often myself just used written tutorials which I prefer or youtube tutorials which it seems every mother is doing that nowadays.

Welp looks like its not worth a pirate then if its that bad, how the hell don't they do any sort of quality control anyway? A rhetorical question. Hmm I have no idea about game maker 2 so I cannot give you any specifics too it, else I would have given you a more useful direction. Then I guess you have no other choice but to check out youtube tutorials then, its used by a lot of people yes? If that's the case then theoretically there should be a tutorial for beginners.

Uhh can anybody give me some pointers what I need to do to make this renamon hand model more suitable for FPS animation? The problem with this model is that the bones for some reason are very miniscule scaled, some of those bones are hidden inside another bone and that the detail of this model is way too high. Would it be difficult to just remake the bone setup using the same set of vertex groups, deleting a lot of polygons so thats its more low poly and adding bone constraint so thats it a bit easier to animate with? Sorry for asking dumb question but I am not really familiar with animation stuff.

Well I am deciding to work on my renamon GZDoom mod instead, so no I am not doing everything from scratch. GZDoom doesn't support skeleton models at all but the md3 model exporter plugin can export those models just fine as it will get converted to vertex based animation instead. >If you are making it from scratch then why reinvent the wheel?

>>693604 Do the bones animate wrong? If no then just select them using the hierarchy. If so, then that depends on how much time you are willing to spend fixing the bones.

Looks like I have answered my own question, so I can just edit the bones just fine without fucking it up too much as long it retains its weight paints and bone/vertex names. Well alright I try repeating the same process for the other hand and then I'll try animating a gun with her hands. If that doesn't work out I guess I just need to use a different model then or something, I don't know. For some reason its a bit difficult finding a good renamon model whose arms I can rip out for FPS animation. Funnily enough GZDoom can handle that model just fine with the md3 model format without screwing up the model too much, except that it doesn't load the texture correctly but its a bit hard to get the surface texture parameter right because its not really obvious which numbers belongs to which material.

So if I understand it right the left hand needs to hold the rifle like almost from the bottom up instead of what I am doing now.

>>694440 >Also why renamon? Whats the plot of your game? There is no plot to it as it is just a GZDoom mod. And as for Renamon well I just like playing as her and killing monsters. I mean if I would play Sven Co-op with the Renamon skin its almost the same thing. Except that killing monsters in Sven Co-op is not that good like in GZDoom. Because in Sven Co-op the maps are quite small which is not well suited for large amount of players and other players often bum rushes to the exit and the loading times of this game is atrocious long compared to UT99 which is just as old as Sven Co-op and has modding support out of the box, has a much faster loading times.

Well now I implemented a shotgun. Before I start adding more weapons I need to add support for iron sight mode (no the mod won't play like a tactical game, its going to be action focused) the iron sight mode will be there for accuracy boost over longer range, minor speed debuff though. Also I noticed her nails texture wise are a bit fucked so I need to correct it, since luckily its just pure black I will merge it with the main texture so that I don't use up another texture slot just for the nails. Then I also noticed the shotgun reload animation is a bit scuffed where the wooden thing (I don't know the correct term of it) doesn't get pumped and I could swear I did animate that part. Hmm though on the other hand it got me thinking if I should just use generic furry/monster girls hand model instead that is if I can find those. Because I'd do would like to add support for other "classes" well its not going to be real classes, more likely just a skin choice so you can play as other girls instead.
>>694779 >>694927 Hey anon. Isn't 3d enemy models easier than drawing sprites?
>>695095 No idea, I haven't made any attempts at making enemy models so far yet. Hmm I guess I could try by making really basic enemies first such as slimes and skeletons I think.
>>695101 Did I screwed up with the animation again or something? If it comes to shotgun speed, I would actually try to slow it down to similar speed to Half Life 1 Shotgun or OG Doom Shotgun, too make it not too strong. Right now it can even kill cyberdemon in seconds, as I have not enough weapons to change the weapon balance. And no I won't gimp the shotgun either to make it completely useless, it will be fairly accurate and do a lot of damage, like it can 1 shot a few group of imps or something.
>>695101 Who's this boomer and why's he so quick on the draw? the left to right makes me want to sub
>>695140 Firing speed is fine, it is the timing on the animation that feels fucked. Feels limp and robotic.
>>695143 He's a competition shooter. He has a viral video where he reloads his shotgun in like 3 seconds with a gun set up for competition so he can speed load it.
>>695172 Hmm, I should look then how other weapon mods that add realistic weapons do their animation then, such as the Sven coop weapon pack and see how if I can match the animation somehow to it, probably not 100% but maybe close enough I guess.
>>695181 I would avoid realistic animations considering you're working with a stylized anime animal. Need more exaggeration or emphasis on certain animations. Make it really feel like she's SLAMMING that pump action.
>>695183 Good point. >Need more exaggeration or emphasis on certain animations. Make it really feel like she's SLAMMING that pump action. Looks like I need to practice on my animation skill then, hmm. Know of any games or mods that I can look into that to see how I should do the animations?

>>696615 Hmm that is indeed strange. Normally I'd except from other people that it takes them ages like a month or so to do a full set of a sprite sheet, but the opposite? Well at least I know the people who worked on the what da fuck mod told me when they made I think the ronald mcdonald sprite or was it peter pop off I forget it took them about a month to finish it. >>696623 I first started off doing ugly and optimized models with Wings 3D before I started becoming more proficient at making hard surface modelling with it and then later I ditched Wings 3D for Blender. Honestly looking back at it I don't miss Wings 3D anymore as it is just too limited for any kind of serious modelling work with it despite they are inspired by other programs which had more features such as animations which is for me odd why they didn't added that. Just alone fiddling around with the UV Maps/Materials in Wings 3D was some janky shit.

I was working on Hole-in-Nyan with a friend of mine but he had to leave due to obligations to his own project. These past few months I've been largely focused on 3D modelling practice and artfagging but now I'm gonna have to put my coder hat back on. Anyone else here one-man-banding their whole game? Care to impart any tips for a guy solodeving a 3D C# unity game?
>>696922 Stop using unity and switch to godot. I'm very biased Also, that character is very cute did you draw her?

>>696925 I'm probably not gonna switch engines right now, especially since I don't know how to do 3D stuff in Godot. And I didn't draw that specific picture of her, but I did design her. She is Kasha, my daughteru. Here's a pic I did draw.
>>696928 Oh... youre the gigamaidens guy. Unironically best of luck to you. We really need more uncucked devs in the industry. please work faster I'd say you really should maybe work on smaller projects tho.
>>696938 Hole-in-Nyan IS a smaller project. I'm just retarded and can't code. But I'm building my skills. I'll do a writeup on this game later but I previously posted about it here. >>653593
>>696944 I'd say if you're having trouble with coding to give godot a look. Might have a bit of a better time with gdscript than c#. Not to mention the hierarchy system with nodes in godot is pretty simple to use.
>>697021 I second this. I'm playing around with Godot and it feels like going back to the flash days with Actionscript 2. I first started learning to code witht hat. Very user friendly.
>>696944 Well, it looks like you know how to draw, so you may want to consider just making a 2d game, that'd make it a lot easier to make something quickly, and not have to keep re-learning thing.

>>697087 Hopefully he's not a retard and takes your advice, that way he can build a solid foundation or else he's gonna be LARPing as a dev for the rest of his fat fucking life.
Did you guys hear Dunkey opened up his own indie publishing studio (I think) called Bigmode Games? I don't know much about Dunkey other than that he's an irritating youtuber with shit taste in games and a voice that sounds like his sinuses are clogged with chocolate pudding. But one of my gamedev friends says he wants to apply for Bigmode to publish his game.
>>697797 He is a prudish unironic left-leaning SJW who loves TLOU2 and hates fanservice in Japanese games.
>>697797 I dont see how the hell dunkey can "publish" games? How much money does he have to fund them? Can he do any advertising for them other than just telling people to buy them on his channel?
>>697818 He makes over a million a year from his Twitch streams alone
>>697819 Cool how you don't have to be talented to make money these days

>>697021 >>697037 >>697087 >>697337 Thanks for the advice Anons. I've been trying to learn the 3D gamedev pipeline so I'm building a pool of skills in that regard. I've already made great progress learning blender and stuff for this purpose. What sort of game would you propose I make in Godot? I've had plans laid for a 2D platformer with Kasha but that's shaping up to be another large project and I'm trying to scale things down to something manageable. I'm trying to think of a small game that makes use of her, uh, cat magic. So she turns her tail into stuff, like different Kirby abilities.
>>698014 A simple 3D platformer would be good, with her tail providing different mobility options (flight, double jump, swimming like its a rotor) and could even serve as a melee ability along with swipes and bites. That way you can create a sandbox level with multiple objectives instead of multiple levels, and really nail the feel of the gameplay. So in summary, a single world 3D platformer sandbox level with cat-like objectives, such as knocking bird eggs out of nests to collect the stars/jiggies/bananas.
>>698018 >cat-like objectives, such as knocking bird eggs out of nests This seems oddly specific, you got a story there? First I heard of a cat doing that but I fully believe they would.
>>698020 It's an innate behaviour in cats. Mostly in domesticated cats it's just them knocking things off tables with a paw because it's instinctive, but it stems from knocking eggs and whole nests out of trees to slurp up delicious egg yolk from broken eggs or to feast on those scrumptious baby birds. When people say cats are devastating bird populations, it's not that cats are hunting mature birds when they're on the ground feeding, although they definitely do that too. No, it's the way cats treat the next generation of birds before they're mature that really devastates the ecology.
>>698018 It sounds like the gameplay would be similar to Tails' levels in SA1.
>>698014 Something dead simple. Something you could make in a few weekends. My first game was a flappy bird clone combined with the controls of something like asteriod.
>>698025 I'd write it so that Kasha has good and pure reasons for doing naughty kitty things. Maybe the birds were evil pests who attacked Milchi's crops. Or the mice are Jerry-esque troublemakers who will destroy the whole house if Kasha doesn't do something about them. So we'd see the cat activties from the cat's perspective. I think there might be something to this idea, I could probably do it like an 80's arcade-style game, similar to this? Seems like it'd be easy. I have the pixel art skills for it. But I wanna think of some kind of fun hook.
>>698287 If I ever get that PGMMV shmup i'm working on off the ground, can I add Kasha to it with your permission?
>>698290 That sounds cute. I'd love to see it. Is she just flying through the air by herself? Or does she have some kind of ship? I think the former would be more silly and cute in a Parodius kinda way. Maybe her bullets are all just little "NYA!"s.
>>697797 >>697874 >>697800 >>697869 Dunkey isn't left leaning in the slightest and if you think so then you're underage b&. He's known mostly for his comedy videos in games and pretty reasonable takes for the most part. He's only really a shit eating contrarian for the sake of it at worst, and I can definitely agree his TLOU 2 review was pretentious as fuck and did water my opinion of him. Watch his older videos from like 8 years ago onwards until about 2018, and you'll find yourself enjoying his stuff. Since then his comedy has noticeably dried up and he's had to resort to acting like he didn't enjoy Persona 5 by shitting on jrpgs. Back to the sjw thing, he did briefly mention hasanabi in one of his videos, but when the niggerape tirade happened in the streets back in 2020 you gotta give Dunkey credit for being one of the only breadtubers that didn't end up with #BLM in his bio or posts. He only took the moderate route which is a fuckall better than everybody else at the time and it's miraculous if you consider how many people gave in back then. As for his company, I unironically am looking forward to it. You can expect him to publish games based on merit alone if you understand his style of criticism.
>>698436 I think the dislike he gets stems from his wish to make "positive" content plus that contrarian nature he adopts for the sake of "fresh" takes and/or comedy.
>>698436 >isn't left-leaning in the slightest you know literally nothing about the guy. https://archive.ph/Npxwd
>>698679 You have to remember his hands are constrained as a jewtuber. Whereas back then he openly said "faggot" and "KILL THAT NIGGA" his newest videos are him lazily making dumb kid jokes with funny haha sounds to them, so anything he does that's actually funny or entertaining is really just his xenoblade video that is amassing all this butthurt and the zoomernon nodevs here fall hook line and sinker at Dunkey's constant bait. I mean the anon who brought dunkey up in the first place said he doesn't know much about dunkey, and the proceeding anons stated as much as well. It's okay to not know things though like >>698683 here seems to think he knows somebody by his post on twatter baiting literally nobodies in the same screenshot into freaking out. You need better caretakers.

Dunkey is a breadtuber, has bad opinions on games, an annoying voice, and a cult of zoomers eating his every turd. That's all I need to know that his brand is poison and I don't need my games associated with him.

>>698702 >Dunkey is a breadtuber, has bad opinions on games, an annoying voice, and a cult of zoomers eating his every turd. The biggest crime is pretending to be retarded, which as we all know is still being retarded. Even being a leftist twat "ironically" is still being a leftist twat, like fellating tranny dick in TLOU2 and hating on weeb games and fan-service.
>>698290 How is PGMMV? Does it have a lot of the built-in stuff like RPGmaker, such as handling text dialogue and built-in databases and stuff?
>>698686 >he's just baiting impressive I guess he just "ironically" likes TLOU2 to the point of making a 20 minute video where he cherry picks and conflates comments to make everyone who disagrees with him look retarded Doesn't help that he also liked God of Soy and Celeste among other shit, and dislikes anime and fanservice generally. Conflating legitimate criticism with the retarded ones to make himself look like he's the most sane person in the room is a slimy tactic.

>>699481 game of the year 2022
I'm not developing a game, I'm developing a text editor. Yes I know, there's a fucking billion out there, but none of them have everything I want. Any features you guys want that your favorite text editor doesn't have?
>>699595 Not to be that kind of guy, but why not extend something that already exists?
>>699605 I want to get better at low-level programming. I don't want to have to learn someone's codebase/api to start doing stuff. Sublime Text is closed source and you can't modify it fully, you're stuck with what the devs let you work with. VSCode is open-source, but I personally don't like it, and it would be quicker to just start from scratch than to modify it. Emacs is great, but it can't handle big files and is slow sometimes. And I have a lot of free time.
>>699621 How about vim?
>>699621 Oh and I should say one feature Ive seen in vs code that I like is when you can hold down your mouse wheel and create a new cursor on each line you hover over and then type whatever you want on multiple lines or highlight the last half of each line,etc.

Started this project. Probably shouldn't be doing the sprites first, but... it's what I'm best at and I feel like I gotta do something. Starting to figure out the GDD right now. This game is about pest control and Kasha to stop these creatures before they destroy her whole house. I want this to be a fast-paced arcade style pest control game. I'm taking inspiration from Gnat Attack and the original Mario Bros where you have a quota of enemies to defeat and you clear stages by defeating all enemies. I'm following some material on 2D platformers in Godot but I hope I'll be able to take it from there after I'm done.

>>699821 Good idea, I think that'll work and is very doable, and will give you history, experience, credibility and potentially revenue
>>700170 Octopath is soulless overpriced garbage irregardless of his opinion.
>>700170 everyone knows he hates JRPGs for some reason, I'm pretty sure he only played them to say that he did indie devs who like non-earthbound style JRPGs probably aren't gonna apply to his shit, at least if they've paid attention to how he is with them.
>>700194 I don't agree with most of Dunkey's opinions because he really loves a lot of AAA shit for some, but where does this JRPG thing come from? He loves the Persona series and if I remember correctly, Chrono Trigger his is favorite game. He doesn't like a lot of JRPGs because to be honest, a lot of games in that genre are copypaste. You don't have to be some YouTuber e-celeb to figure that out. It's the same for those survival-crafting games, some are really good ones like Subnautica and Don't Starve but 90% of them are the same game.
>>700187 >"irregardless" Kill yourself
>>700170 >Reminder that he lied and misrepresented Octopath Traveler What did he say about it? Was he one of those fags that said the eight stories weren't connected at all and that there was no larger meta-plot to follow?
>>700199 He literally said in the video where he likes Persona 5 that he hates anime (besdies Hayao Miyazaki), turn-based combat, and (J)RPGs (he also never said anything about liking the rest of the series) and that Persona 5 was the exception to the rule by being that good to overcome his normal dislikes of it. He never explicitly said Chrono Trigger was his favorite game anywhere, he only implied it in a very small part of a large joke video, but the problem with him is its hard to tell when he's joking or serious. >>700202 Irregardless is fine, it's not technically a typo
>>700503 Oh, and random encounters i think*
>>700503 >and that Persona 5 was the exception to the rule by being that good to overcome his normal dislikes of it. I'm call bullshit on that. It seems like there are loads of people that hate anime, turned-based combat, and JRPGs that suddenly changed their opinion just to be be with the "In" crowd regarding Purse Owner 5, the title that (According to actual SMT and Persona fans) is the most casualized entry in the entire series.

Does anyone ITT know about making your own hardware? I want to make games like the rest of you fags but I want to do it on my own open sourced hardware, sick of the PC jew, the steam jew, the cucksoles and the handheld chinkshit. just wanna make some good games for my own little system, doesnt need to be that powerful, dont care if it looks like a PSP game, some of which look very nice like MGSPW, as long as the gameplay is good I have no problems. so is there any guides on making your own hardware from scratch? all im getting from search engine results is tutorials on how to make your own machine using prebuilt parts or a raspberry pi
>>701148 How "from scratch" do you want to go? If you're talking about doing TTL on a custom board, holy shit my nigga. In addition to what the other anon posted, I'd recommend some Ben Eater videos and jdh's handmade computer. No man does wiring like Ben Eater. Ben Eater will also show you how to use chips and try to get timings right. At some point, you need to bend over and accept someone else's chips inside you, pleasurably. Even shitty 3D is going to need shitty 3D hardware, and you are probably not going to be the source of it. Then again, maybe you want to go Commander X16: a 6502 main processor, with a super fast, super modern FPGA implementing a sound and video chip? There are a lot of levels that you can go to if you think that a Raspberry Pi is too high-level. Take, for instance, "The High Nibble"s IMSAI 8080 kit, which is a fancy Pi Nano connected to a custom IO board. What, to you, is a prebuilt part?
>>701148 Gotta start with a mine, anon.
>>699875 You should stream more Mr Cole dingo.
>>700804 SMT fans have had an autistic hatred of Persona ever since 3, and Persona was always a casual series. Logically it would make sense that more mainstream appeal is gained through further casualization and making "broad appeal" moves along with improvements in graphics and presentation aspects. Plenty of "actual Persona" fans liked it, though it definitely did have flaws not least of which was its character writing.
>>701264 more like mr. cool-dong
>>701264 I mean I do, but I know what you mean. Maybe sometime I'll try jackbox again now that there's more people regularly using the stream stuff.
