Hey guys, I will try make updates like these to show you what I am working on.
Plataforma ULTRA dev update #1
I have been making a bunch of changes in the past few days, with the most important being key binding and the implementation of help boxes.
Key binding it's exactly what it sounds, and I had to re-structure a part of the main code to accept keyboard rebinding. I have yet to implement a joystick key binder, but it will come soon!. Basically you choose a letter A-Z, arrow keys or space and you can jump/walk/whatever with that key. There's a few exceptions: the letters P, F and I. P it's used to pause the game, so it would be awkward to jump with that letter as well! In the same vein, F shows/hides FPS and I shows/hides extra information about the level.
Help boxes was that kind of idea that came to me in the shower. I wanted players to have some kind of access to a certain part of the help menu without making them search for it manually. Then it hit me: why don't open up a box that tells you the important part? And so help boxes came to existence.
Hope you liked this small development update. See you next time!
