Browsergame Lost Chums Test v0.01 - John movement
Edit: Forgot the link dumb me: www.chibiedo.de/html5/HS/wip/L…
Tumblr link

Have a little testgame thing~ I'm starting to build stuff for LC already (while other stuff in this is just random haha).
You can move with the arrow keys, can jump on dirk and jake (where I also tried animating the expressions on hit but the images don't fully fit since I didn't create new ones for this XD).
And sorry no animations for dirk and jake yet.XD They are kinda like enemy AIs here so they disappear when you jump on them and you are 'hurt' (flickering) when you run through them.XD
I also started drawing the background as you see but it's not done yet at all.. I just wanted to check the look and feel and layering and parallax ;A;. Like it so far.
John gave me a bit of trouble because of his change from walking to running in this. Hope it's bug free now (even though I think I should reduce his speed XDD )
Hope you like it! comments always make me happy~

The game is great. I jumped on Jake by accident and freaked out, and then I jumped on Dirk to see if it was me, and it was xDD I am just a brilliant person. The running could be better, but the fact that I don't have to reach across the keyboard awkwardly made me happy o u o

thank you! Going to work on the running some more. I hope it'll turn out niceXD What do you mean by reaching across the keyboard awkwardly..?XD There will be more keys for them since every character has different abilities.

Well like when one of the keys are like 'x' and then one of the keys you need is like 'k' or something and you have to keep one of your hands on the arrow keys and you have to reach awkwardly? I guess? xDD

I agree with a few others that the running speed is a little hectic. But I do like that i don't have to hit a special thing to make him run [Kinda reminds me of Sonic the hedgehog how he walks for about two second before running]. Needs a little tweaking but the game works really well. Took me a could seconds though to realize Dirk and Jake were enemies. [That was my fault though] Over all great thing.

:iconchibiedo:
ChibiEdo Featured By Owner Nov 16, 2012
yeah and I agree with that too.XD and they won't stay enemies of course. this is just testing ground so it doesn't have to make sense XDDD Actually I'm working on switching between them right now which seems to work now~ too bad i don#t have animations for them yet XDD (aside from the fact that i should probably MAYBE first do dave and rose because they are in the first level with johnXDD. (but i love dirk and jake too much sooo who knows who I'll draw first).
And thanks! yes now that you mention it that reminds me of sonic too! I really like this way of handling runs too.

Lots of JakeDirk but sorry no JohnDave (not that much of a johndave fan but I love dave and I love them as friends so there will be john-dave interactionXD). Dave is just in general one of the really important characters in this. The other main pairings are JohnKarkat and JaneRoxy.

Well, you've fixed the running issues partly, but I still have one complaint.

He automatically starts running when you hold the move for over about a second or two, which could be really inconvenient in a real game. Maybe.... I dunno, have to tap in a direction twice to start running, or holding down another button (R, for example?)
Reply
:iconchibiedo:
ChibiEdo Featured By Owner Nov 16, 2012
well i won't add another key for running because john has to run to jump higher. but I'll fix the speed making it less insane haha. and tapping to run is something that annoys me in games. i want to have a running speed that would also be nice to play as... so the walking speed shouldn't be too slow and boring and the running not too fast. have to play around with the settings until i like the speed.

Thanks for your constructive criticism : D I appreciate it.

GMYumil Featured By Owner Nov 16, 2012
It's fine. :) Maybe instead of just suddenly going from slow to fast he slowly starts moving faster?

:iconchibiedo:
ChibiEdo Featured By Owner Nov 16, 2012
he kinda does that already (speeding up and slowing down while walking and running, not only the switch between walk and run). But I want to show the animation switch so that the player knows when john can jump higher (he jumps higher in the running phase than in the normal). Hmm but I just got an idea... Not sure how to explain but pretty much what you just said just with switching out the animation + the maxJump height when he reaches a certain speed, and switching it to normal maxJump height when you are under a certain speed again.. have to try that. *playing with switching characters right now : D *

In my opinion, you should do a textbox conversation thing next.

:iconchibiedo:
ChibiEdo Featured By Owner Nov 16, 2012
XD after the movement. I need the real base for the movement stuff first. I just redid controls completely again to prepare being able to switch characters and for them to have different abilities without having to type everything multiple times XD *found out how to work with families in construct 2 and love them*
But yeah textboxes are also far up on my priority list.
Not sure if I can load text from a txtfile or something easily via this software... so I might try to put the text into a giant array or something. (also need to find out how you can work with arrays in this. I'm pretty sure they exist.XD ) ah so much stuff to do but this is a lot of fun~

GMYumil Featured By Owner Nov 16, 2012
Reminds me, I should get started on my shitty game soon. OTL

As for textboxes, I find it's quite easy, though I'm using different software to you. Rounded rectangle with a grey background tends to work decently -kind of like in the recent homestuck flashes - the adventure ones i mean. Just like said flashes, have the character pic/talksprite on one of the sides. What I did for the conversation stuff on mine is that each time you pressed space (or whatever button), it would replace the textbox with the next textbox, and on the last box of the conversation it would return you to the game proper. However, I'm using them between levels, so I'm not sure how that would go mid-level.

And yeah, preparing multiple different characters is going to be difficult.

ChibiEdo Featured By Owner Nov 16, 2012
what kind of game : D ? and in which coding language?

Oh well I did do textboxes already a while ago in flash CS2 where I had used an array and something that checked to automatically show the correct nexttext. I don't want to replace the textbox, I just want to change the text. So I don't have to copy a textbox and put in text manually for every dialogue (at least the 'replacing textbox with the next textbox' sounds like that, not sure if I misunderstood.
I want to make them somewhat like here in this gif: [link]

I just started with construct 2 though so I don't know a lot about it yet. But it's insane how fast you can do amazing things with it;A; There is a free version which can do a lot of stuff already. But since I wanted more layers and usage of families I bought the personal edition 2 days ago XDD.

The problem I have in mid-level which goes in hand with the controls is ... pausing the controls while the box is up?XD + what's if I open the menu or if I actually pause the game? I wonder if there is a trick to it or else I'll have a lot of if conditions built into other ifs...XD
Ok that's for another time..XDD

This is coming along very nicely. It runs rather smoothly, except for my failure as a gamer. I did have problems changing between walk and run, though. Good luck and keep going. You're doing something wonderful here.
