Post news RSS Towards third demo

I finally have a level editor! It's making things so much easier. Also in this update is more new level content and concussion grenades.

Posted by on

Hi, this time I'll try my best to keep it short and still not leave anything out.

Up until now I've done the design of my levels in a text editor and that's a very slow process. Now I have a basic level editor in place and it can handle the tasks that were very time consuming before. Now I can SEE what I'm doing.

In the video there are concussion grenades but I failed to aim them directly at enemies. I kind of left that out because it looks too bad with the enemies shooting towards the non-existing player. But there is a stun effect on the enemies that will keep them from firing and even make them surrender if close enough.

I have been working a lot on the graphical interface lately. I've started integrating a GUI library called Rocket, but I'm having problems grasping some things with it. If you have experience with Rocket please drop me a message!

I think that I've fixed the timing issue that made the game run too fast on some machines. So it will be interesting to get feedback on this when I release the next demo. But now as a side effect I think I've got some performance issues. Either there's still something I need to work out with the timing related to what I just changed, or I need to optimize some of the countless other things I know can be done better. That maybe sounds a little bad but really it's not. I just need to go over and tidy up some things, and that's how I work - I refine the game in increments.

So that's what needs to be done before demo 3 gets up here. Watch the video if you didn't already and leave comments! Thanks!

I have some performance problems and some minor things to sort out before the next demo. I think that means 1 or 2 weeks.

It's randomized if the weapons the characters get will have suppressors and/or laser turned on. Maybe it hasn't appeared in any video before. I'm in the process of rendering the level in 3D instead (of 2D) so that I can use lighting. I think it will take quite some work, it's just something that I'm playing with at this point. But I hope to get there. :)

Half the fun (if not more) is getting feedback from you. I hope it will be big as well!
