RULES AND F.A.Q. Deveropa 09/13/2019 (Fri) 18:35:00 ID: 9e9ecb No.15 [Reply]
1. Respect the Global Rule 2. The Board is SFW, hence spoiler any mature content if you can 3. That's pretty much it 4. This thread will work as a META THREAD for the rest of the board. Feel free to post your complaints and questions here. The board was set up merely a bunker and repository for developers, waiting for 8chan to come back online, but since it's in the process of committing sudoku, this could be your new home.

Ok, seems like I'm a fucking retard and this is above my head, so I was hoping that /agdg/ can help me. I've been learning a bit of python as I made some visual novels over the years, I thought I had it ok but I'm stuck with what potentially be something stupid only because I bite more than I could handle. I'm trying to do a simple "Breakout" style mini-game for a new visual novel I'm developing. The gameplay will be largely inspired by both Touhou bullet hell and the original 4 or 5 touhou games that were more in the breakout style. I wanted to have the main character hold a shield and him being able to hold it and toss it, holding the shield would protect him from some projectiles, but he can toss it to damage enemies to either the right or left using the mouse buttons. He should be able to move freely through a portion of the screen, and he would get upgrades through the game like extra shields, more health, and the strength of the shield, and there would be a couple of boss battles using these mechanics. I had the flow map already planned, but the problem is FUCKING REN'PY DOESN'T HAVE SUPPORT FOR PYGAMES ANYMORE Reading some of the documentation, it seems like using creator-defined displayable is the way to go, but I for the life of me can't manage to display the mini-game correctly. Can /agdg/ walk me through this like a retard? Any example code lying around? There are plenty of pygame breakout games around, but I couldn't find a single one ported to ren'py in order to at least see what I'm doing wrong. My other option is moving to godot and trying, but since the game will largely be mostly a visual novel/trainer game, I think it would be pretty retarded to switch engines only because of the mini game, and ultimately I may drop the mini game, but man, I don't want to since I really like the concept.
bump
Sorry it's nothing personal OP, but I didn't reply till now simply b/c I don't do Python. C++ is a much more common language for game dev AFAICT. Good luck with your quest though.

Is there a free/paid engine preferably unity/godot that allows me to assign assets so they are interactive like this Paris scene from Bioshock infinite ? https://youtu.be/GydRfy9KHY0 My goal is not really a game but an interactive virtual world that are exactly like that scene. >NPC greets you >NPC doing their own things >First Person View >Interact with objects >Sitting, enjoying the slow pace >Ambient and object sound >To exit, just needs to enter back the door/go to sleep Sort of a trip to the past where time was great. Reminiscing the childhood and buildings recreated from photos and scans.
>>353 Couldn't you just script this stuff and assign flags to a "sphere-like" area?
>>354 I-I'm more like an artist more than the programmer..
It doesn't stop requiring videogame logic just because there's no "gameplay" objective. Even "it's interactive" doesn't have any standard definition, do you interact with it by proximity? How far away? By clicking it? By pressing a hotkey when you're near it? By pulling a lever? Do you need an item or some other prerequisite? Does it cause something else to trigger elsewhere? There's no single solution that accounts for all possibilities, so you have to script it in. It doesn't sound complicated though, I'm sure those engines have very simple ways to accomplish what you want, but I suspect it requires writing some code anyway. I'm not very familiar with the engines so I can't say exactly what.
>>356 Is there a specific genre for that? I know platformer. Or maybe it's point and click?
>>353 >i-i-is UNITY a good engine to use? >wha about goDoT? These unityfags i swear.... Go back to making garbage on your joke of an engine

Uncommon Time Full-Rewrite Project Deveropa 07/22/2020 (Wed) 02:45:29 No.279 [Reply]
Tenative Name : Uncommon Time Retuned Demo day builds (Latest at feb 13th) : https://mega.nz/folder/9HhVQaAb#Xa_HoCynSVuPKx7iOJTLNw I am doing a full rewrite/edit of Feralpheonix's game Uncommon Time. In addition to the purging of literal-faggotry and tumblrshit, it cuts filler and adds in new story elements. Included are more main characters, a few new side characters, real villains, and gives the both the player and characters more agency in their actions. For the gameplay side, spells from all fronts are being tweaked to make them more useful. Characters that were otherwise shit for one reason or another are changed up to be better. Yanfly Engine Ace scripts are added, so the party limit has increased to 7, and there are various other additions to make the game better. as well as a few oversights with the scripts that I need to work around to make time less-wasted >why are you doing this? To prove to myself I can emotionally get over my nodev status and make "something big". >You're not gonna fuck up Teagan, right? Hell no, she's still snide and critical as ever. In the rewrite, she's a legit monk instead of a "fighter", no longer a carbon copy of whatever anime character FP used to template Teagan, and will still be critical about the party over their shitty playing. And for you glorious waifufags, I got you covered, fam. >Is FeralPheonix's self-insert (Alto) less of a cunt now? Yes. Alto as a character has been split into triplet siblings now: Alto, Mezzo, and Soprano. The bitchyness and autism have been shuffled around the three of them, so you'll see how things pan out as the game progresses.

>>359 Physics-based pinball game that's like a Rube Goldberg machine.
>>360 > Physics-based pinball game that's like a Rube Goldberg machine. physics-based pinball sound reasonable enough to implement. Not sure how the "Rube Goldberg machine" part could be incorporated in to that, but I'll give it a try.
>>361 >Not sure how the "Rube Goldberg machine" part could be incorporated in to that, but I'll give it a try. Well, here's a basic description of the idea Anon. >A Rube Goldberg machine, named after American cartoonist Rube Goldberg, is a chain reaction-type machine or contraption intentionally designed to perform a simple task in an indirect and overly complicated way. Usually, these machines consist of a series of simple unrelated devices; the action of each triggers the initiation of the next, eventually resulting in achieving a stated goal. So I'd say it's just a matter of finding some silly, overly-complicated way of achieving a scores. Hitting bumpers or rollovers, say.

hey all, recently became homeless but i still want to work on my game. i'm currently on a shitty laptop, are there any game engines that might be able to run on it? i'm thinking unity but i want to hear suggestions

>>295 >Blitz Anon, you just took me all the way back to my childhood. When I was 11, my parents got me "Game Programming for Teens" for Christmas and that book used Blitz. Of course, I was a retarded 11 year old and could never figure out how to work the engine, and by the time I was smart enough to into coding, Blitz was well past its point of irrelevancy, but I still had fun messing with the demos that came on the book's CD.
>ctrl+f 'sfml' >no results Step up your game, /agdg/. Here OP, this is an extremely easy to use engine that creates compact and fast executables. https://www.sfml-dev.org/index.php
Sorry you are homeless anon Xray engine is got its sauce openes. (Go to github) Sift through the code copy, paste modify well enough and im sure nobody will notice.
Try one of those webgl javascript engines (frameworks). Also get on some support, I guarantee there's some charity that will hand you a better laptop.

>>151 Uncommon Time Rewrite Project - DEMO DAY 8/8 build LINK: https://mega.nz/file/gaxR1JIB#GzLFv3TM4sLtUGv6u5IbvMTT7EKyMaWEn-UdPY_12TM I will be releasing another demo when nuclear teagan is finished. At that point I'll begin to focus on art and music stuff. CHANGES FROM LAST VERSION (If I can remember exactly how much has changed) -- Various sporadic corrections with character nameplates, typos and message box misalignment. -- Added Yanfly engine's Victory Aftermath. -- Day 1 post-rehearsal fully implemented, demo progress technically ends there, but I will eventually release a demo that has progress up to Nuclear Teagan completed. -- Changed a dialogue moment in the Dal Segno Luthier's bakery where Soprano breaks character and says something nice to Alto. -- Bosses for various mid/late-game arcs have been included. They are fightable through the debug boss room, accessible once you reach the end of the demo. -- Debug boss room fully revealed this time because I'm lazy, and partly because I want to show shit off. As such some have suggested levels if you actually want to play them. -- New, pre-secret-final-arc area, Spiritoso Peak has it's maps completed. Access, however is not available in the main game, only through debug. Even then there are no encounters, so it's only worth looking at for about a few minutes at most.

RPG Maker general Deveropa 10/06/2019 (Sun) 13:34:44 ID: f3ecea No.67 [Reply]
Anyone here using the RPG Makers? Which version do you use? What are your favorite projects made with it?
1 post omitted.
I still have RPGMaker 95.
>>67 >2k/2k3 VH XP Finding Paradise Reincarnations (unfinished and abandoned, but the story has promise) >VX/Ace Tales Of The Drunken Paladin (funny, unique setting/worldbuilding, generally a fun ride) Some Touhou Platformer (forgot the name) >MV Ruins Seeker
How is GraphicsGale compared to Aseprite? What about Pyxel Edit? How does Wolf RPG Editor compare to RPG Maker?
>Anyone here using the RPG Makers? Not for anything more than mods of other people's games anymore. >Which version do you use? XP is the best in my opinion, but I have copies of all of them downloaded. >What are your favorite projects made with it? My own? I never finished my own game in it even after all these years. Closest I got was heavy programming work for one, it was pretty close to playable, but it was something I lost interest in. I might consider reworking it into something different eventually, I kept the files. It would be especially badass to work it into two template projects for other people to use and then shit out a quick and dirty sample game. >>225 >How does Wolf RPG Editor compare to RPG Maker? It's more powerful with less programming knowledge from what I understand, but if you can script in a Ruby-derived RPG Maker you might find yourself wanting to use that instead. Wolf RPG Editor's engine is better too though. And there isn't an awkward split between script variables and database variables, it's all the same shit. I feel like Wolf RPG Editor overall is better, but having to relearn how to do shit for it or not being able to type code and instead doing everything the old RPG Maker way (events) would get a bit tiring. So while I had some interest in using Wolf RPG Editor, I quickly thought, "Yeah, I would only use this for mods too," and gave up trying to learn more advanced usage. I can tell why nips like it though. And it's free so they don't have to pirate RPG Maker and risk getting thrown in prison since they take piracy so much more seriously over there.
>>310 >XP is the best in my opinion RPG Maker MZ is now out. It's basically MV with XP's multi-layered tileset system.

This is my first ever finished videogame, and I think it's worth sharing here too. It was originally supposed to be just a little joke, but when another artist joined the team the project really kicked off until it escalated into a real full-size game. Give it a try and me what you think: https://mwe.ee/FluffyDatingSim-1.0-pc.zip
