Maybe Updating Offspring Fling!

Maybe Updating Offspring Fling!

I'm dipping back into the wild world of AS3 for the next few days and pushing out a small update for Offspring Fling (if everything goes according to plan.)

You see, many years ago when Offspring Fling was being made into a downloadable application instead of a flash game, I wanted to add joystick support. I ended up going with a native extension called JoyQuery that was able to do it.. sort of. It had a few issues, but the game had joystick support for being an AIR application which was pretty awesome.

Unfortunately, JoyQuery caused some issues on some people's computers. The game would run incredibly slow, or the game would straight up crash on some PCs. I think the game doesn't work at all on Windows 8 right now unless you put it in Windows 7 compatibility mode.

So that's where AIRControl comes in. The creator of JoyQuery released it a little while ago, and so far it's looking super promising. Getting it integrated with Offspring Fling even after not touching the code in a very long time was really straight forward. This is also coming from someone who tried to use the new GameInput stuff that Adobe has exposed to desktop applications in AIR. I really tried to get GameInput to work, but I have no clue how it works still, and AIRControl took me less than an hour to get rolling.

Anyway, stay tuned for an Offspring Fling minor update that should fix the last remaining issues with the game related to JoyQuery!

Coincidentally, I just played Offspring Fling two days ago on my old CRT TV, using a Playstation 1 Dual Shock controller hooked up to a laptop through an adapter. Worked fine for me.

Awesome! Going to try to push this update this week to see if I can fix the bugs that some people encounter with the controller support :) I still haven't played Offspring Fling on a CRT but it sounds pretty rad... I'll have to get an adapter to go from VGA to s-video ;D

Hi! My name's Kyle, and I make video games most of the time in Denver, Colorado. Here you will find my thoughts, games, websites, doodles, and other stuff like that. I worked on Snapshot, Offspring Fling, and a whole bunch of other games. I also created and maintain Otter, a 2d game making framework. If you want to get a hold of me use the form on the bottom of the page, leave a comment, or just tweet at me. I try to post three times a week. Thanks for stoppin' by! You're the coolest.
