A mystery dungeon fangame still under development.

Post news Report RSS Shadows and some more networking

After a long break and alot of headaches, clients are able to comunicate smoothly with each other! Server now allows plugin support :o

Posted by on

A while ago, I felt shadows were needed ingame to add a little more realism. Pretty basic as they are now, not to mention rough looking! Any solid block will display a shadow on its nearest block :o Ive also been planning on adding lighting effects for attacks that emit light. As of now, shadows and lighting are out of the picture since Im more concerned in completing the networking engine.


Besides shadows, Ive started working on the server side of the game alot more XD! I have to say, I love how the console looks! The font used is this one right here. When the server runs, related files will be extracted in its current location. You can use these files to modify the server properties, change the server map, manage plugins, ect.

Networking

We can see here two clients walking around on the server map, not doing much XD Ive started working on a basic chatbox for communicating ingame c: The only downside right now is server security. Clients pretty much handle their own data, position, and collision detection. This means anyone that is willing to modify destiny´s source code can have control over what happens ingame.
This means that the engine will definitely change throughout development, and clients will most likely end up only sending key presses and receiving new positions/attacks/ect.

Networking

That will be all for now! I know this wasnt much of an update, Ive pretty much been working on the server side alot more than adding new features :o! Lets see were the current implementation takes me.

------------AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE AND A REQUEST!!----------

I have a message for the current watchers/future watchers.
As you all know, Im the only one making this game. I do the music, programming and little art.
The problem here is the artwork. I lack the ability to create more spritesheets for the game, and I cannot seem to find them anywere on the web.Do you want to help with the development of the game?
Feel free to comment! I´ll take anyone in consideration :D!!
Now, what would be your job? Here is what I currently need!

  • Sprites for grass attacks
  • Sprites for lightning attacks

If you need a list of the attacks, I will gladly send them to you.
Anyone that helps with the artwork, will get a special skin for their pokemon ingame :D!
Thanks to everyone in advance!
