Re: New version?

Many compliments for all the work as been done so far; nevertheless new enhancements could have been done including parallel processing and exploit modern GPU. This feature could be reached expanding the now ready llvm. I guess it would be possible to run parallel code on GPU and quickly making pro...

Here is a quick example of a console percentage bar. dim as integer currentamount,totalamount=250,percentage 'console progress bar do cls currentamount+=1 percentage=(currentamount*100)\totalamount print str(percentage)+"% :" for j as integer=0 to 10 if j<=(percentage\10) then print "...

Re: Text progress bar

There isn't much difference between the code for a graphical progress bar and the code for a console bar. What part is giving you trouble?

Re: Eric: The Mysterious Stranger - RTS game(WIP)

They do look cleaner. I did attempt a few times to learn to use Blender but it was rather tedious I can't help feeling there must be a simpler friendlier way to load characters and clothe and animate them. Blender is designed for user control and power. It's also free software and you own everythin...

Re: Eric: The Mysterious Stranger - RTS game(WIP)

The pig is already in the game. I'm still working on a replacement sprite for the people. Cool. The images should look cleaner and brighter? Using 3d graphics definitely makes animation easier but for the static scenery I'm probably going to stick to hand drawn. I think consistency in the "loo...

Re: Sprite and tile collision demo

So in 3d graphics the strands hair or groups of strands of hair require finger-like rigging? Same with clothes? Something I didn't know or at least think about. It depends on what you would want. You could use a particle emitter for hair now that Blender has hair and cloth physics with the cycles e...

Indonesian laws. In Indonesia the government controls most of DNS servers so they can block sites that don't conform to their laws.

Re: Eric: The Mysterious Stranger - RTS game(WIP)

So are you going to use the "pixel sprites" in the program? The pig is already in the game. I'm still working on a replacement sprite for the people. For me the attraction in the coding was having independent agents doing their actions triggered by events (input/goals). A command from the...

Re: Sprite and tile collision demo

Essentially there is only one generic skeleton. In theory all you should have to do is type in the length, angle, angle limits and you have the skeleton of any animal with a backbone. The hard bit is the drawing the different faces and clothes. You would need to use bones to control other element o...

Re: Sprite and tile collision demo

Looks great good job Joshy Thanks! Did you ever post it? I posted some first efforts at isometric rotating animated stick figure rigging. The problem was always motion capture. Motion capture is easier for 2D side views. I never posted it because some features like building skeletons were less than...

Re: Eric: The Mysterious Stranger - RTS game(WIP)

Thinking about it now maybe the first one was medieval like. Didn't they have flutes as well? The last pieces sounded more like Spanish music to me. That's right. The first piece was written by(or attributed to) King Richard the Lion Heart so it is medieval. I have been experimenting with some flut...

Re: Sprite and tile collision demo

Nice demo. I noticed that while falling the object does not lose forward momentum which can look pretty weird when falling from high up. I had actually started working on a stealth & physics platformer a while back but it never got beyond the basic engine phase. It had ledge hanging zones, water...

Re: Eric: The Mysterious Stranger - RTS game(WIP)

Still working away at your project. How are you coming along with making characters with Blender? I've gotten some decent pixel sprite renderings with blender. https://s9.postimg.org/47xpgl4zz/sprite.gif This has cell shading, outlining and uses blender's cloth physics. My impression from reading t...

Re: Eric: The Mysterious Stranger - RTS game(WIP)

I made a new video of the game. It's pretty similar except the addition of classical guitar background music and showing the dialog functionality.
