Swing Copters 84+
« on: October 08, 2014, 07:26:03 pm »
I am starting a Swing Copters clone in Axe! So far, the game is going along smoothly.

I hope to add a bunch of graphical goodies, and some highscore saving (what is a game without it? :P )

This is the smallest that I consider a playable demo as of late. The download link is attached. ASWNGCPT is the source, and SWNGCPTR is the game.

Oooh I love how it looks so far and the swinging axe parsers in the game came out pretty nicely. Good job and glad to see you coding again (I was getting worried 2048 was your final game since you only did Code Golf contest now :P)
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

I was getting worried, too. Maybe I might do Amazing Thief...MAYBE. :P

Thanks. I actually wanna have more goodies to make it look like the original. :)

If I don't post here, any updates (without a download link) will be posted on my Vine and Twitter accounts. ( @josiah_says )

As long as you still post quite a bit of updates here to let us know about the progress I'm good with this :P

Don't worry, the Vine updates are just for times when I can't immediately upload the files. For instance, at school, if I make a big development, I go to Vine, then remind myself to update on Omnimaga at the end of the day.

Ah I see, thanks for clarifying. I just know that certain Omni users tend to prefer posting their updates on Twitter and such site and only post major ones (or sometimes wait until the game is done) on Omni.

Thanks.

In other news, I will post an update later today. I have made a whole lot of progress! But I have a problem with externally saving and loading highscores. Whenever the appvar is archived, it causes instant death upon gameplay start. So I'm saving highscores internally.

Bump.

Update! Highscores are implemented (saved internally), and the bird falls, among other changes.

Looks good. Are you going to add animation to the propeller at some point?

That'll be hard to do, but I'll do it. :)

It shouldn't be too hard, you just add an animation counter and draw a different sprite every so many frames. Or do you mean hard to draw? Animating the propeller really shouldn't slow down the game at all.

It's looking really nice, i especially like the menus and the font!

What menu? Do you mean DoorsCS? :P But thanks, those are all custom bitmaps!

And by that, I meant the propeller and the bird are one entity, and this makes it easier for collision detection. I thought that, by Art's comment, he implied me splitting the bird and the propeller into two different "objects" in-game, which would make some stuff harder. I know a good way to do it now, thank you ;)
