@MLRTachyon Cool, if you want to talk more in depth than twitter feel free to send me a message hi@kpulv.com (Today)

@MLRTachyon Oh thanks! <3 Good luck :) (Today)

@naughtysecrets Oh sorry, I removed the password from the beta branch, and didn't update the main thread about it. Magic fixes everything :o (Today)

@naughtysecrets The beta branch should take care of any game breaking issues. Is there something specific that isn't working for you? (Today)

@EdgeOfProphecy @FourbitFriday UGH they're just making it worse with every update (Today)

@FourbitFriday hope you didn't update your bed right before going to sleep (Today)

@amora_b I think more games should just suddenly pause after 40 minutes or so with just a message box that says "Hey, fuck you." (Today)

@MllePilgrim @infinite_ammo Gotta be quick about it if you want to keep up with me. (Yesterday)

@MllePilgrim @infinite_ammo they were delicious (Yesterday)

@Demruth My small rural home town in the US got a roundabout a few years ago. People actually protested it, and take routes to avoid it... (2 days ago)

@infinite_ammo The rich get richer. (2 days ago)

@snakepixel His recovery is insane (like almost all chars in this game) You can do your air jump, then side B and jump cancel out of it! (2 days ago)

@snakepixel Bowser Jr is who I'm trying to get good with! I love his back air and his air attack after ejecting from the flyer thing. (2 days ago)

@rabbit_nabokov Or I guess just a script that takes in a number as an argument and spits out the string for 0 - 9? (2 days ago)

@rabbit_nabokov If you want 1 to give you "One" then the best bet would be to make a ds_map with the numbers as keys and the string as value (2 days ago)

Dev Log: More Explosions

Image

Been having a lot of fun with my workflow of animating in Flash, exporting to a SWF, and then using ShoeBox to convert to a sprite sheet. There are some hiccups in the pipeline still, but hopefully I can get them ironed out before I get any deeper in the art department.

I should really be working on the actual game part of this game, and probably all the systems that are going to be needed to be intertwined, but at this point I'm having way too much fun with particles. I've been bound by the word of Flash and ActionScript 3 for so long. Having 30 particles on the screen in Offspring Fling was a nightmare for performance, but now in the land of SFML, C#, and Otter, I can spawn hundreds of particles and the game doesn't hitch at all -- not even in debug mode!
