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. List of other bunkers: http://8agdg.wikidot.com/general:bunkers

Hey Shodanon, if you're still here, would you like to take over the board? I'm juggling way too many right now.

Engines for potatos Deveropa 04/09/2020 (Thu) 12:04:54 ID: 6d2071 No.105 [Reply]
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

>>247 Buddy probably went to solve that homeless problem rather than maek gaem, which is completely understandable
>>247 trying out Irrlicht now Anon, thanks. all the examples are building for me except the specifically-wangblows one. i'll dig into the source sometime over the next couple of weeks and see what i think of it. it's age shows and they never got the memo about sepples being a value-semantics language obviously. but it seems to perform well, and there's a more modern fork of it i've found as well. looks promising tbh.

Never tried it but take a look at Blitz3D, an old school engine from the early 2000s that recently got its sores opened. https://blitzresearch.itch.io/blitz3d
>>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

>>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.

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.

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.

>>190 OK, got it thanks. I'm only interested in MIT-licensed C++ engines. I think this is the list. >
>>187 >Well, I was hoping to get a good 3d engine unless you're reaching for the skies, I doubt you will have an actual game changer struggle with godot. If you're planning on doing a shooter or a 3D platformer, I doubt you'le have any short term problem. >Is Godot like Unity in that it wants to load as much stuff as possible when creating even a basic demo? Godot is developer friendly so no. Your project will always start from scratch, so game made in godot, if well made, won't look like one another.
I'm looking forwards to build a "game" once I am done with my current projects (that would be more or less in one year). It actually isn't a game, though: it's more or less sorta-kinda an engine. Imagine RPG Maker. Problem is, I am not sure which language/library/engine should I use. Some of the requirements my game needs: >PC, phone and browser compilation targets >3D Rendering distance is irrelevant because it will mostly be played in an isometric perspective >Voxel-based environment, so most of the world will be very light on resources >Real time illumination would be nice but not a requirement >Networking capabilities >Decent pathfinding on a grid-based potentially dynamic world >Character 3D models and skeletons/animations >Animation and model stitching to swap parts of a model at will (think being able to choose between regular human legs or centaur legs while still having the same animations for the torso, or swapping clothes and hairstyles) I was thinking to use Godot for this, but an anon on /tg/ told me Godot was absolutely fucking terrible for 3D due to import nightmares and that I should avoid it at all costs. Given I am not going to start the project right now, do you happen to know if there are any possible improvements to this in the roadmap? Which libre alternative could you recommend? I was also considering Haxe or even JS + Three.js, but I would hate to make an Electron application. If possible, I'd like not to use C or C++ to program game.
>>235 The only argument that I can think of when using godot is that the 3d randering quality they offer are abit too heavy for any potato could handle. If you don't mind using an obscure language like pascal. There's a 3d game engine for it called castle engine that is less heavy oriented when it comes to 3d randering. Go look for it and tell me what you think.

Deveropa 08/06/2020 (Thu) 23:09:48 ID: fd7b24 No.299 [Reply]
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.

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.

3DChan V2 Deveropa 07/06/2020 (Mon) 13:14:51 ID: eceb10 No.265 [Reply]
Hey! Here is the first a playable demo for the V2 of 3DChan: https://3dchan.net/blog/july-2020s-dev-blog/ >What is 3DChan? For those who don’t know what 3DChan is, it’s an hybrid between the imageboard culture and Second Life. >Concept of the V2 (more on my blog post) This version won’t be online, not exactly. You will be able to post files and build level in local before sharing it via bittorrent. It’s pretty close to the concept of Decentraland, but without the virtual estate agent thing. BTW, is this channel linked to the 8chan's /agdg ? I used to post here.
>>265 Good luck with the project OP. Yes, you could say we're at least some of the old 8ch aggydaggy crowd, now present here on anoncafe.
>>265 Nice to see you're still developing this. If I'm sharing via bittorrent, do you mean in the sense of someone else having to post a magnet link in their local instance/using a torrent client to do this, or in the sense of having an in-built tracker that allows you to see other's instances and download them more or less seamlessly from within the program?
>>268 >Nice to see you're still developing this. Thanks. >If I'm sharing via bittorrent, do you mean in the sense of someone else having to post a magnet link in their local instance/using a torrent client to do this, or in the sense of having an in-built tracker that allows you to see other's instances and download them more or less seamlessly from within the program? You won't have to specify any torrent tracker, even if I will add an option to add your own one. Most of torrent libs, like webtorrent add their own torrent trackers, and there's tons of torrent trackers available. You will just have to share your magnet link. I even thinking about a system to share these links using a screen capture with a QRCode.
Uploaded a new build correcting a major bug. You can now chill on 3DChan V2. https://3dchan.net/v3/

>Progress Files and video displays are working (but are not in prod for now). BTW, there’s a curious behaviour on videos, depending on what browser you are. I tried to mute video, and the video wasn’t playing anymore. My next step will be coding NPC. It will be a big piece of the game before working on graphism. The bare minimum for them will be to have a dialog tree, a customizable sprite sheet, and maybe I will add some combat in the long term. In terms of sprites and mechanism I will get inspiration in RPGs I love like Megami Tensei & Persona, suggestions are also welcome. >Patreon Because I want to keep the project free and open source, I decided to launch a Patreon. If you see the same revolutionary thing I see in 3DChan, your support is welcome. >patreon.com/alexkrunch >more info on my twitter @alexkrunch
