Post news RSS Hidden Asset development video #28

In this video, I take a small detour back to melee combat to fix some issues, then sketch out the rest of the second map.

Posted by on

It seems there are always parts of a game's code you end up returning to again and again. For me, that's the melee combat code. I've completely overhauled the way melee combat works twice now -- and every time I think that now I'm done. And while the general feel of melee combat is now locked after I added high and low melee attacks a couple of months ago, minor issues still pop up from time to time.

So in this video, I return to melee combat for a brief moment to fix two issues: 1) the player would get animation locked and unable to attack or block when being pummeled by a group of NPCs, and 2) when blocking one NPC, all other NPCs attacking at that same moment would also get blocked and stunned.

After fixing this, I can finally return to my primary task at the moment -- finishing up the second map so the first two maps are ready for closed alpha testing. So I then sketch out the rest of that map.
