first valid completion, lets go ladssubscribe to pewdiepie
>>389131547im trying something weird
hello, i have a confession, im to retarded to make a game.
>>389132338that hasn't stopped me, or anyone else here anon
>>389132304While I still can't understand it, I can appreciate some out there game design/mechanic. More the power to you to try and make the concept work
Was setting up custom save game names, pretty easy with an editable text box writing a string appending with the level name to make the save file name. A few minutes of work. But since the game is designed with gamepad use in mind I decided to make an onscreen keyboard so you can enter the save name with a controller. What a stupid fucking idea god damn, this shit is all I have worked on for like 3 days. The issue is about the editable text box focus. Basically when the text box is in focus you have to click or move out of it to go back to the rest of the widget. I wanted to be able to seamlessly move up and down into the text box with the gamepad, or be in the text box but still be able to click the on screen keys and have them work. It doesn't let you do that, you have to click out of the box first, and that click will always do nothing, in other words you have to click twice initially to get the on screen keyboard to work. I figured a workaround for the gamepad but there was no way around the mouse clicking issue so after trying 50 million different things eventually I just added a blur overlay when the text box is selected, so at least it looks like you are clicking 'out' of something rather than it just being a click which confusingly does nothing. This is so inconsequential and I wasted so much fucking time on it, and this is why I will never finish this game.
>>389132678its level generationi was using greedy best first search before but obviously it falls apart when it hits a local minimum
>>389132851You might be able to configure the UI system not to "eat" the mouseclick event Or, capture it yourself and emit a clone of it right afterwards? Its funny that even though you haven't clicked out, its still showing button highlighting. Maybe its something you're doing wrong
>>389132851kek nice webm, and I think it was worth your time to make controller support(maybe not the screen focus autism though), bothers me to change controller just to type something
this shit hits the autism just right

I attached bomb spawning to the main character (The Matriarch-Imago) and it's fun to just kill things while constantly out-running an explosion, its not going to be in the game but it's funny to just run in on bosses and blow them up.
>>389130886I was waiting for years to start a shooter with their next source hammer, and I'm done waiting. fuck 3d, fuck valve, fuck and so on. Going to do 2d assets now.

>>389133184>You might be able to configure the UI system not to "eat" the mouseclick eventI don't think it's possible because of the focusing behaviour. It considers it to be a click on the text box, or at least a click 'out' of the text box, not a click on the button. As long as the box is in focus that's what it'll do. My workaround on the gamepad was to get an 'on lost focus' event to trigger it. So it will be at 0 on the text box, then (in theory) press down for it to go to 1 for the first row of the keypad, except it doesn't change the integer because that button press only moves the focus. Same issue as with the clicks. But in this case it always has to go to the same thing, so I simply set the int manually every time the text box loses focus. Couldn't figure an equivalent workaround for the mouse because it needs to know the specific click location. >Or, capture it yourself and emit a clone of it right afterwards? I'm not sure how to do this, do you know how?>Its funny that even though you haven't clicked out, its still showing button highlighting.Yes this was also infuriating. I think you can consider the highlighting as showing that you are going to move the focus to that button on the click, so one click moves the focus and a second one performs the actual click action of that button. That's my understanding anyway but to me it's a pretty dumb system. I couldn't find much about it, I don't think many people are concerned with having both usable at the same time. If the game is just for gamepads then it works fine without ever focusing on the box, if the game is just for mouse/keyboard then you don't need that anyway, so I guess it's not a typical thing to do.Oh well it's good enough for me now, time to start working on something else.
>>389134896youtube didn't exist when i was in middle school, desu. i did make hell-of complex levels in the descent 2 level editor though, and also some civilization ii mods that were so elaborate they fried my mom's dell shitbox.
>>389134896my version of this is getting the regirock/registeel/regice without a guide. I decoded braille by hand and figured out the clues. Also I used to make codes for my friends to break with replacement cyphers, shifts, and made up symbols.
>>389135670Oh man descent was the shit that was the first proper game I ever played.
>Parse Error: The identifier "State" isn't a valid type (not a script or class), or couldn't be found on base "self".why is this an error?
>>389135942because that doesn't exist as a variable type. and if you want to use enums for states, do it like pic related. if you really want to static type 'state', use 'int' since that is what an enum is after all, words stored as a list of ints

ah enginedev. decided to spend a week not working on my game and instead rewrite the renderer to use vulkan instead of opengl, for no other reason than I wanted to and because opengl is on its way outI might not ever finish my game, but going to have fun and going to beocme a better programmer either way
A productive day(night) after spending hours procrastinating and shitposting.
>>389137220Well at least you're not delusional, that's the only thing I have against engine devs really. Otherwise, I can see it being fun if kinda redundant to using a engine
>>389134454What is this? Someone's actual gamedev company profits or a shitpost?

>>389138812For further context, it's for an apprenticeship as a software dev.I told them that I am a "hobby game dev" and they wanted me to bring example games of both engines I have mentioned in the application, to show them what I am capable of. Truth is, all my projects are half-assed, unfinished garbage. I am currently thinking of making a Tetris clone and a chess game with basic AI functionalities. But I will probably require 2 more.
>>389138812>>389139124Hello, Cris' alter ego that takes over when he falls asleep.just show them your half-finished projects, if it's just an apprenticeship who cares any autist apprentice is already 10x more useful than your average joe IT they just want to put your drawings on the fridge.
>>389138812don't make new ones, add some polish to your unfinished garbage
I am not good at coding. I've spent about 2 hours total learning C#.Are there resources for premade code/AI for games? Is it feasible to make a game by just picking up premade code?
>>389138812>>389139124It's over for you, cretin. They will see your shitty code and immediately discard you like the worthless scum you are.In fact, IT companies love to stick together. They will probably warn eachother of that one shitty wannabe-apprentice and no one will call you for interviews again. Just go huddle in your corner like the worthless, Godot-using frogposter you are. You could try flipping burgers at your local McD if you're lucky enough for your manager not to know that you have no fucking clue what the difference between a pointer and a reference is.Anyway, keep up your "gamedev hobby", bro. Maybe after a couple of years you'll reach that 10 download milestone on itch.io when you figure out how to nestle arrays inside of eachother.
I sort of miss coming here every day but I don't miss being deluded enough to believe I have what it takes to make a game

Valheim devs were working on the game for like what, 1.5 years before EA? Game took off and they each got about 6 mil plopped in their laps. Took a month break off, and now have added fuck all to the game. Don't be like these devs. They made a good game, but didn't deserve what they got when they giveus nothing in return :D
>>389140614>>389141145>>389143369even when I put music on, if I get focused on devving I don't hear it anymore.
I got some fancy laminated stickers for my game and this makes me more giddy than when I actually released it. best $ to dopameme ratio in recent memory. would recommend

>>389144575No you just pay them in exposure by adding their names to the credits.
I can't focus on making a game, I wanna make those damn cinnamon rolls that pop up in every comment on youtube
>>389132065>spend 3-5 years making your dream game>maintain mental health, physical health, career, social life, family life because you recognise that gamedev is just a fun hobby>a random bunch of deeply unstable autists, trannies, and schizos on a burmese frog enthusiast forum help you by offering advice and criticism>share progress and post enthusiastically about your work because you think it's cool and believe other people might think it's coolI don't expect anything from this, I just like doing it.Doing gamedev over the years helped me develop many skills and got me a decent job (webdev) so I can work from home and get paid well rather than scraping by on minimum wage. Gamedev can be a wholesome and constructive hobby.>>389139124>>389138812don't be ashamed of your half-assed unfinished shit, don't apologise, just be honest and say you don't have a polished portfolio ready to show off, so here's some stuff you've messed around with. You know it's not finished, that's fine. You're aiming for an apprenticeship not a tech lead position. If they do expect an apprentice applicant to whip out a fucking catalog of finished games on demand, that's fucking stupid. Especially in multiple engines. Anyone who finishes games just learns one engine and sticks to it.Personally I'd never want to work professionally in gamedev, it's fine as a hobby, but it seems like the absolute worst part of the software industry. Way easier and better to work in webdev.
>>389144753Great, now I want to make some too.But I think I'm missing some things and I'm not going shopping again until Monday.
I'm maldingI use area's overlapping bodies to find the next target, but physics updates in godot are so fucking slow, I consistently keep picking dead targets, even tho I run it on physics process with one frame delay
wanna make a short vn to practice writing.gimme some prompts pls.
Guys please don't make fun of my game for DD.
>>389144979remove the dead target's collider so it stops being considered as a valid target in whatever jank algorithm you've written.
>>389145039 I will if it doesn't feature cute girls with big titties.
>>389145164I set bodies collision layer to 0I don't know if that is somehow slower than outright removing it
Yeah that's gonna be a filter from me dog.
>>389145164I don't know I don't use godot. I also don't know why you have to select a target every physics frame. You have provided no context to your problem, so nobody can help
it is the year 2022 and STILL no indie game has been able to capture the magic of Souls game
>>389145256Cool what game?
>>389145274This one is going to by my side project for this DD, but my main project has cute girls with small tiddies. My side project is a survival dungeon crawler.
>>389145528I'll let it slide because the girls are cute but please change the font I can't see shit.
>>389145528Do you do this artwork yourself?
>>389145528anytime someone says "go touch grass" i immediately assume they have an lgbtq flag hanging on their wall, or a dildo collection
>>389145437>I also don't know why you have to select a target every physics frameI don'ttargets die on physics frame because damage it cause on physics frame so death signal is sent on physics frame so it clear current target that is noticed on next physics frame
>>389143348wtf you talking about nigga, the 6 mil was already in return for something they gave us, that is, the game
You cause a problems just to solve them. That's why you're ngmi. Keep pretending you're doin good. Your net effect is zero. You should give up.

Caves in the mountain biomes (barely anything), and a few new cooking recipes and cosmetics for our house. Meanwhile, looking at their original roadmap.... They scrapped it and gave us nothing. I can't say I blame them, I wouldn't want to work either if I got 6 mil dropped into my lap. But they are still bastards for making one of the best games ever, then not finishing it.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D_CO9pJJJcYIn my country these brownfellows got a stack of money from the government to make this game, problem is the guy has studied mocap but doesn't really seem to be able to make a proper game, progress has been extremely slow. All of the assets except the characters and animations were taken from unreal marketplace. I mean he went to a lot of trouble with the trailer, but I don't really expect much to come of it, I think he is underestimating how hard it is to go from some animations to an actual working game.So I was wondering if I could rip off these mfers somehow, I can claim to be Maori and they will throw money and just about anything. Not sure how to go about it though.
>>389130886I suffered through it, nostalgia my ass. The only thing that image did was re-ignite painful memories.When I played gmod, half life 2 and TF2 I was marveled at what the engine could do and with source 2 around the corner I believed that source was THE engine for game deving. I did two things on source, made a heavily scripted map for TF2 and worked on a standalone game (didn't go very far on it though). Both times I had huge problems along the way, nothing was truly intuitive or easy for a beginners, things broke down without a reason and the documention was awful, often relying on random forum questions made by others before me, most of them going unanswered. All while I was still waiting for source 2 to come out, which it never did (dota 2 and alyx doesnt count). Godot 4 is going to come out first, which is embarrasing to a level difficult to comprehend.After some years of waiting I realized it was a waste of time and dropped source deving all together. Fucking valve, when they get their asses together they can do cool stuff, but most often than not they leave projects abandoned along the way leaving the community to pick up the broken pieces.
I'm going to make a game called America Burger where the protagonist name America Burger has to go to his favourite restaurant America Burger to get their all new America Burger. It will be a 3D platformer with a bunch of classic America themed levels like a shopping mall, a race riot, a school shooting, and an alleyway full of homeless drug addicts.

been a while since I posted progress,finally finished going through all the DD bugs & feedback, thanks again to everyone who left me detailed suggestions. I'll resubmit my game not this DD, but the one after so that it has more to it than a few new features and bug fixes.most of my work has been on -fixing transparent wall shaders being too bright and noticeable, and just breaking sometimes-tweaking level generation and room design to prevent having gigantic dungeons, and adding more visual flair to prevent rooms feeling samey-adding bloody shaders to all enemies to indicate their remaining life-adding rare items with their own unique modifiers-fixing as many bad animations as possible-redoing a bunch of art-adding an option submenu to the main menu with sound and resolution settings-optimization for thinkpad usersbe sure to submit your games to DD so i can play them

I still remember working on a TF2 map and getting an error in Hammer stating that I need to contact Jeff.Then there's the whole pay incentive thing they have.

>>389151253no, it's either free unity assets from the store or stuff I make>>389151335yes but I also can't into art so the 'finished' UI wont look that much better unless I pay someone
>>389151075Please don't ruin the game by adding flasks like poe. (Still play poe religiously, but god damn flasks are such a shitty outdated mechanic)
>>389151396The numbers the enums represent don't really mean anything, other than indexes in an array. Nil can't be zero because L need to be 0 in the corresponding adjacency, face, edge, and reflection tablesBitfield combinations would similarly fuck up the arraypic related: Generated tables from the paper I'm copying
Hello /agdg/It's a new day of deving.I made the signpost taller, and added the logic to show text when the player interacts with them.I am not sure if I should make it so you can only interact with it when you face the paper, or if I should keep it as it is shown in the webm.I am going to continue working on the tutorial for the time being
>>389151604wat it do?
>>389151560I don't play PoE, but a quick search tells me they're rechargeable potions which kinda goes against what I'm trying to make>>389151690as shown is fine, collider/pixel hunting is always a chore
>>389151694The tables are used to get the various neighbors of a node in an octree. Edge neighbors (nodes share an edge) face neighbors (nodes share a face) and vertex neighbors (nodes share a vertex). This is then used for creating a navmesh with A*Pic related: my navigable octree nodes
I know I shouldn't be using Godot, but I can't go back to Unity after how comfy it turned out to be. Anyone else?
>>389151192My favourites overall are Dragon Quest V, Chrono Trigger and Breath of Fire V: Dragon Quarter.Honourable mentions: >GameplaySuper Mario RPG, Superstar Saga, Mario Golf Toadstool Tour (kind of a bullshit answer but...idk man its good.

>>389151258If you make a game with source, you will 99% of the time put it on steam where they will snatch 30% of the profits. One way or another, they will get a return of their investment.But again valve has been crap at game deving for some years now and source 2 is ironically becoming a relic of the past without even coming out.
>>3891518212/2 solid nodes in the octree
>>389151914Switch to Stride.
>>389151820>collider/pixel hunting is always a choreI agree, but I also think it's weird when you can just read signposts when you are behind them, or when you can open chests from the hinges' side.
>>389151821Ok anon, but what does an octree do? What do you need it for? Please spare some thoughts for a brainlet.
>>389151914so you're finding godot comfy, but you want to switch because of some shitposts on 4chan? or what?
>>389143348>>389148513IIRC they had some early version on itch a few years before launch. I believe they spent way more than 1.5 years on it.But yeah it sucks that they just fucked off. I understand it as a dev but I don't like it as a gamer. I think that if my game made millions at release I'd probably lose the will to work on it. If it made something more reasonable it would give more incentive to improve upon it so that the tail of the sales would be better. On the other end if your game doesn't sell you're better off moving onto a new project.
if your game doesn't have complex algorithms and genius level functions i won't play it
don't reply to enginewar posts.
>>389152194I want to switch because Godot is not very powerful and doesn't even come with AA for 2D.Not to mention its 3D engine being riddled with flaws.
>>389152301my game only has genius level algorithms and complex functions :(
>>389150969you can do basic mocap with a smartphone app.
>>389152551is that usable for game quality animations though?

>>389152113Not him, but they are used for spatial partitioning. First it covers the scene in a cube, then divides that cube into 8 smalller child cubes, then those into smaller cubes, and keeps going to some depth. It's useful to optimize collisions or rendering. Example: If you want to collide two objects you just recurse from the top cube down only going through cubes that intersect the objects path. Then only if it hits a cube with an object you do an expensive mesh check. If one child cube doesn't intersect the path, you ignore all of it's children, etc.
>>389151939I've never played golden sun before but I'm a big fan of shining force's style of battle animations which is pretty much the same thing.do you mind lolicon stuff?
>>389152731it's 2023 anon, that kind of tech is no longer some unreachable aspirational thing anymore when teen malaysian vtubers use it with ease
>>389152332it's open source, write it or find an extension
>>389152113An octree is a way of splitting your arbitrarily sized solid walls and entities into a tree. If you chose, for example, a 3D grid, you might use a lot of memory. an Octree only uses as much memory as it needs to store things. Notice in this pic:>>389151980That some of the cubes (nodes) are bigger than others. This is because the walls that collide with them fit completely within the bounds of that cube, and so no smaller cubes than that are needed (saves 8 subdivisions, and the memory for 8 different cubes).You can use an octree against a viewing frustum (camera) to do frustum culling more efficiently (removing walls that don't need to be drawn this frame)Also, if you categorize the nodes as "solid" (meaning they have a wall in them) vs "not solid" (they have no wall inside them), then you can use the non-solid walls as nodes in a navmesh. This is a graph of connected nodes which allows you to use pathfinding algorithms in 3D such as A*.The code I posted before is specifically used to get the neighbors of a node (the other cubes which that node touches) so that you can connect a path through them
>>389152852and all it does is blinking and clapping the mouth like a puppet
>>389152810>do you mind lolicon stuff?Yeah that shit creeps me out. I mean, I actually really liked Veronica in DQ11, and I have a 2 year old daughter that is always doing cute stuff, so I have no problem with cute little girls existing in games. But I can't stand the cunnyposting Veronica "fans" you see in DQ threads. Plus I think it's just a bad business decision that alienates a lot of people at the expense of appealing to a niche. So idk man, it depends what you wanna do.
>>389153275you will NOT like me then, I don't wanna put cunny in a game but I draw a ton of it and I'm friends with major cunnyseurs... sorry.
>>389152340what's your most genius level algorithm and complex function?
>>389153607I mean, i'm aware that artists generally draw a lot of degen shit, it kind of comes with the territory. Part of the definition of being creative is partly an inclination towards transgression. It wouldn't be a dealbreaker for me if you didn't insist on making some loli H-game and just wanted to see your work in some derpy little RPG-like thing.
does anyone have dynamic bones unitypackageplease or any alternative open source.
>>389152906>>389152785Thats very cool, thanks for the explanations anons. Why did you implement it based from a paper, did this come out very recently? It looks like something useful enough for other devs to make some libraries for it.
>>389153882Octrees have been around for a loooong time. There may be some library existing for octrees, but I didn't look very hard for one. I'm an engine dev, and that means (mostly) doing things by yourself. My rendering is all my own DirectX code, but I am using Nvidia PhysX for physics because that's just not a rabbit hole I want to go down.http://www.cs.umd.edu/~hjs/pubs/SameCVGIP89.pdfThis is the paper I'm implementing. It was published in 1988

I think you'd be quite surprised with Golden Sun, they really want full autist on making their attack anims feel as impactful as possible, its definitely several steps above SF in that department. Flashy effects out the ass, too.

Perhaps I should cherish the friends I have that aren't into it but still treat me like a person and GET that it's cartoons only.
>>389154848I'm an actual professional gamedev and it totally bewilders me that save states aren't really a thing in modern game development. it would be insanely helpful for bug reproduction and debugging.
>boomer shooterbut instead of trying to clone doom/quake it clones serious sam instead.
>>389154939There are serialization libraries which save references. You can save everything to JSON with references preserved and then deserialize and things should just werk™
>>389153731nta but its gotta be the code for this thing. I wrote it in a sleep-deprived haze because an anon asked how one of my gifs (which was reversed) worked, and when I told him he was so disappointed I felt guilty, and somehow it works. When you shake it, it un-mixes.
>>389154956and the serious 1 engine is FOSS too.https://github.com/Croteam-official/Serious-Engine

I'm feeling the itch again to develop an incomplete prototype and then bin it
i wish i was a Flying Neko Delivery
>>389155423god, me too
>>389151075Have you thought about making it a sci-fi arpg, or anything non diablo like, visually? There are no entries in that regard on steam, and the last time someone made a sci-fi arpg is more than fifteen years ago or so.
>>389154906look, man, i'm not looking for someone to marry. It probably would've been better if you had never mentioned it, but I get why you wanted to avoid the risk of wasting your time. It's unsavoury and in the long run could be a bit of a liability with some care needed, but I don't really see it as a barrier to working on some small things that have nothing to do with it anyway. "Your skeleton sprite was drawn by a lolicon" ain't gonna keep me up at night.
>>389154906Bro I wouldn't want to be friends with a pedo or a furry.
>>389149675Figure drawings, concept art, portraits for my characters, basically non-pixel stuff. I just want something that's not super bloated and does its job well, like aseprite for sprite art.
>>389155725Affinity Photo, is a Photoshop clone, has no subscription fee, no features locked away, no cloud service holding your work hostage. It goes for less than 50.- quid or so.For pixel stuff, I use aseprite. Super cheap and easy to get into, but the process of pixel art for games is entirely different from drawing traditionally.
>>389154906>distancing yourself from mentally ill pedophiles>irrational behaviorlol?
>>389152643fuck if I know. there are some examples on Youtube. If it's not what you're looking for then I guess you could use a mocap studio, but that can be pricey.
>>389154653it's not just the fact they re-released the switch port instead of updating the pc version. It's the fact that the pc version was graphically superior, and if you did not buy it, you cannot even get it anymore.
>>389156293>blacksmithhe's clearly white tho
>>389149131Clip Studio. You don't need photoshop for gamedev at all.
>>389156293where do i follow your gem?
>>389156846I'm gonna put it up on itch.io for demo days
>>389155025webdev retards memed json and now everyone uses the literal second worst data format besides xml
>>389156220desu this sounds more like it could be dev incompetence than a business decision. Maybe they couldn't figure out how to add DLC to the build.Although maybe they did just want to sell it as a separate SKU, Monster Hunter-style, but didn't want to do it with two sets of assets (again, because of dev incompetence).It's shit though yeah.
>>389154956serious sam is boring
>>389157124No, it was a business decision. They had both versions of the game on steam at first, but people started shitting up their reviews, so they just unlisted the PC version.
>>389156293>bl*cksmiththe preferred terminology is "smith of color", or, if you prefer, "will smith"
>>389154848kinda your fault for using something so retarded for such simple problem
if I'm implementing a corn harvesting mechanic before a gun in my FPS game, does it mean my priorities are not set straight?

Progress postI finished placing all the signposts around the tutorial level.27 signposts, and it pretty much just explains the movement, and some objects you can find within dungeons. I am going to add more later to the section where I explain other parts of the game
>>389161978>27 signpostsi can't help but think having the same tutorial as super mario 64, a 26 year old game, is a bit odd
>>389161942try linking a post maybe?
How feature complete should a demo be for the jam? I'm not sure I'll have much to show for it.
>>389162186I never played super mario 64. I don't think reading signs as part a tutorial is very unique
Anyone else not know how to make a game but lurk here anyway
>>389162308look at the previous demo days. Some people submit nearly complete games, others just some movement prototypes, or ui.Submit whatever you would like to get feedback on
>>389162308its a literal demo, as long as you get the general gist of the gameplay in its fine
>>389162356that's literally what this whole general is about
>>389162356do you lurk here to play games on demo day, or do you just enjoy reading the thread?
>>389155493Yes, but I like fantasy more than scifi and decided to settle in on that. Not only that, but modeling and 2D art would be much more complicated than just simple fantasy equipment like swords and shields. That's a project I'd be down to do if I had someone else tackling the visuals
>>389162548I haven’t had a PC til recently since I bought a MacBook so I might try them. I like seeing you guys argue and the general minds of amateur game development.I would like to learn but I think I should continue to focus on illustration and the occasional animation

Been working on a survival dungeon crawler as a side project. So far I have:1.) Survival stats linked to the hud. Stats give detriments when reached. For example at 35% rest you will lose strength stats, and max hp. At 0% you will lose 1/2 of both. For hunger and thirst when you reach 0% you will lose health until you die.2.)Working lantern that uses oil, and usage is linked to the hud. If it runs out of oil the lamp turns off. You can refill it with oil flasks, which give you back an empty bottle when used.https://litter.catbox.moe/g1ojcz.webm3.) If you die, you drop your souls on the ground, and a physical soul is represented where you died in the game world. If you die before picking up these souls, they will disappear and you will drop your current souls at your most current location of death. (Yes this is a direct ripoff of dark souls, I love the mechanic.) https://litter.catbox.moe/xyh27s.webm4.)Node based world map travel5.)Weight system. Everything has weight, and if you are overburdened you cannot hold any more. Also adds infinite storage to your house.

>>389166145>stop being a drain on her financesmost moms actually don't even think about that.they care more about their son just not making anything of themselves, because that then goes back to them as a failure of a mother.If he had a decent game and was clearly passionate about it, i'm sure she'd probably be open to letting him NEET for a bit.

Would it be a bad Idea to level-lock progression for my rpg?Or at the very least before boss fights.example pic related
>>389167503there's certainly jobs where you interactwith them less. But even in a supermarket the worst you have to deal with is giving someone directions to some product and your boss telling you what aisle you're stacking today. If your social anxiety renders you too nonfunctional for that it sounds like you need to address that issue.Otherwise uhh, pizza delivery? Amazon warehouse?
Quests are back in. Probably functions too. I also added an infinite loop of dialogue that only becomes active after you accept the quest. There are some limits to this quest system(or I haven't tested the limits enough) but I do not have time to code my own right now so it's probably good enough.All inning on learning art was probably the right call.Once this quest is implemented I have about three days to bugfixes and I'll figure out how to make it package properly. How do I upload to itch
>>389167716I started lopping off everyone's feet so I don't fall into this trap.

Is there a way in godot to make the game run very slowly so i can see where the fuck my code is going wrong?
I just realized I didn't really present a good use case for hover jump ability, so I guess I am extending the movement tutorial>>389170193yeah, just make an account, then make a game page, pack your whole game into rar, or whatever, and upload it.I recommend actually putting some screenshots on your game page, and generally fleshing it out, but it's optional.here's my game's page https://webcough.itch.io/goblin-resort
how do you reconcile viewing distance/perspective changes across genres? fighting games are relatively "zoomed in" which makes them not very suited for something like platforming. beat 'em ups/ belt-scrollers have that faggy 2.5D perspective. physics doesn't seem to be all that interesting in top-down perspective, etc. what sort of interface might be needed to combine unlike genres. I know that different genres have different visual needs and controls, but i don't want to pull a fez meme because that seems a nightmare of logistics. Worst case scenario I'll just use genre-shifted sections or levels.
I keep writing more code but the damn thing still doesn't work I'll just junk it and start from scratch
>>389171574That all depends on what you are trying to accomplish.
>>389171574why would you pose the question in such open-ended terms rather than just telling us what genres you're blending? You want us to solve for all genre blends? Throw me a bone here.

For a 3d procedurally generated world with dynamic story quests and enemies, which engine should I pick?Unity or Unreal or should I make my own engine?Which gives me more freedom?I know that both unity and unreal can do almost everything, but which is better for impossible(and also non-Euclidean) geometry.For fractal and recursive procedural structures?I know manifold garden does this well with unity.I don't really like following tutorials because they don't explain things really well and I'm stuck on how things work at the ground level. So I thought engine dev might be viable since if I do everything from the bottom, then things will make more sense. But I don't want to spend 3 years on just making an engine. I also pulled that number out of my ass. I have no clue of course. So what's a good balance? Should I find better tutorials/docs and go through everything that one engine has to offer or just engine-dev? And also if I do pick an engine which one?Also afaik woodengine and cryengine are deprecated and heard working with source is a pain.

>>389172692all irrelevantstart by making pong
>>389171821I wanted to have gameplay simultaneously revolve around "zoomed in" pixel-precise movements, like footsies in a fighting game, but then suddenly switch to "zoomed out" pixel-precise movements like a shmup. as you know pixels vanish as you zoom out, and speeds would need to radically change since the distances are constantly changing.Basically is this a retarded idea to combine them like this, or should i keep them segregated. I'm hoping to do a dragonball-esque thing where characters sperg out and fly around spamming bullets.>>389171876I was being retarded but it wasn't on purpose. I was hoping for an abstract discussion on the nuances of meshing genres.>>389172603This is closer to the considerations I had in mind. I'm thinking about building an elaborate function that does this for me, but then the issue starts to revolve around game resolution which is a whole other thing I'd like to talk about also.>>389172947yeah I know it's a faggy way of addressing a thing we both know what it means. ignore that part.
>>389173217Ok but what if it want 3D pong
>>389172692I've seen Unity be used more for procedural shit.I would just pick which ever though.I've used both and both are fine. I prefer Unreal just because it's built in stuff is useful for what I want to accomplish, and it's features in general are more fleshed out. Unity is typically more lightweight and flexible.If you actually know what you're doing though you could probably just use whatever and be fine.
Is python an okay choice to start out ?
>>389164982Cute Dragon!>>389167841Make sure to read through https://docs.unrealengine.com/4.26/en-US/TestingAndOptimization/PerformanceAndProfiling/ReducingPackageSize/ before packaging, reduced Project size by a lot. And especially later on once it becomes bigger, it can easily become to big for the normal itch upload limit when you just package in everything, instead of only whats needed. Only packaging needed assets and excluding engine content are the biggest ones imo. >>389172692I'm speaking as an Unreal User, don't know enough about Unity.>Which gives me more freedom?Unreal allows you to alter the Source however you feel, so technically that. >which is better for impossible(and also non-Euclidean) geometry.Unreal is pretty much designed around "generic 3D Games". While it can do everything, aswell as Unity, you won't be able to use a lot of the features of Unreal, so no advantage there.>Enginedev but don't want to spend 3 years making Engine.Depending on how fast you pick Things up, you could fork Unreal or Godot as the base to build your own Engine on I'd probably use godot for that, haven't looked at their Source to intensively, but its massively smaller then Unreal, and you could just pull out all the GDScript nonsense and use it as a kind of half finished Engine as your Base.If you're fine with working alongside tutorials/devlogs, theres a bunch of "non-Euclidean" stuff made in Unity, which you can get inspiration from. Not so much in Unreal, but adapting the basic concepts should be easy.In general what >>389173052 >>389173496 are saying is probably right tho, There isn't really a dedicated procedural fractal engine or whatever out there, so just use what you're more comfortable with. If you don't know either, start with making a small Prototype with some aspects of your desired Game in each of them to get a feel for it.

>>389174190Yeah I don't wanna start a language fight but the problem with python is it's very beginner-friendly but making something big out of it is fraught with problems. It's kind of the popsicle sticks and glue of programming languages. A 6 year old can make an eiffel tower with it or whatever but you don't want to build anything big and complicated with it, and games are among the biggest and most complicated programming projects there are.

>>389175353A lot of the Features at least that I use constantly are designed around normal 3D environments. I doubt they'll work well in something non euclidian. I.e. the character controllers physics, Sound Attenuation, overlaps/block shapes etc. are all designed for 3D, if you were to say work in 4D, you'd have to extend all of them to properly comform to another dimension. Might aswell make it all from scratch at that Point. It all depends on what exactly you're going to do tho, I might just be interpreting to much into it.For me Godot seems to lack a lot of the Features for proper 3D or has a poor implementation, but I used it a long time ago, so I don't know if thats still the case. Also it seems to be rather slow, but those probably wouldn't be issues if you forked it, since you could just adjust/fix those for your needs. Something you'd have to do when Enginedevving anyway.Personally I find the docs good enough, all the Functions/Classes etc. are aptly named, and explain themselves. If not theres a short explanation text alongside them. You do have to get to know Unreal a bit first tho, to know where to look for something etc. If by Video Tutorials you mean those hour long livestream like Things, I find them to be a wonderful source for detailed workings and tricks, but not really great to work alongside. Your best bet for that is probably to pick a simple and short thing, read through some of the Docs theres a few tutorial/introduction pages there and then dive in, and learn by doing. Sorry for not being able to help you decide better Anon. You could also just roll a dice. Regardless of actual outcome in the seconds while its still rolling you'll know what Engine you're hoping for it to land on, then just pick that.>>389175386Nothing, and never will be.

The challenge of bringing the right amount of supplies and otherwise planning a trip out to farm a specific resource is largely mitigated>but returning home to dump all your shit or resupply is really tedious especially if you are far from home, so shrinking inventory without making traversal more engaging would be a big mistakeI see a couple ways around this. I think expediting the player's trip home or even just inventory dumping is a good QOL option. it retains the planning part of safely making your way out wherever you are going but removes the frustration of managing a mostly-full inventory, or the tedium of walking home

>>389188546I hate apple for all it's done and now it's leaking and infecting everything else, like windows 11s new look which is just a mac bootleg and the kind of bloat which requires powerful components

I added a tile that forces movement in the direction pointed to by the arrows.
>>389189102a google smartphone with a lifetime of 6 months, that you have to loan from your government, if you don't you're a terrorist
>>389189402Shouldn't the force move happen on the player's next step
i have no friends
>>389189780more time to make game
>>389189780we are all friends here :)
>>389189780me neither, broisn't it funny how you can there's almost 8 billion people in the world and not a single one likes us lmao
>>389189191I don't know. Seems a normal human basemesh runs around 10-20$ on cgtrader first google result, double that if with clothing. sometimes rigged and textured aswell, but might be 10 or 20 more for that. No animation obviously, and generic, not made to order, so maybe double if made specifically for you and with your instructions on costume etc, for a total of maybe 50-100$.I wouldn't trust these numbers tho, I never bought any models or looked at anything like that, so I have no Idea what I'm talking about.If pic related is good enough as a starting point, you can have that, and then just put some clothes on/Adjust proportions to turn it into a male basemesh. Its not rigged yet, and it isn't properly seamed/unwrapped and missing one finger joint, I can add that in tho, but it could save you from having to make a base model. What kind of characters do you need, what costumes, what animations? Whats your Game?
>>389189703Right now it happens as soon as you step on the tile because that was easier to program. I still need to add animations to the movement so while it looks janky and weird right now, I don't think it will be much of a problem later on.
>>389182815Is it sculpting? And how do you texture your models?
>>389189191with bottom of the barrel fiverr/upwork pricing, it'll cost around 500-600 bucks with 10-14 days delivery per characterand more depending if you need a lot / quality animations
need an default avatar for a social multiplayer gamesome kinda of humanoid animalwas going to use pepebut zooms don't care about pepenothing with a tail,shell, wings, etccats/dogs are out, foxes tooany ideas?

>>389190387sometimes i sculpt, but there's no sculpting for that one (yet), just a higher poly model to bake some nicer normalsi use substance for texturing
>>389190410>>389190193Shit, that's expensive and there are some animations but I am cutting corners there, should I just do them on my own, I would have to learn this though?Ok I'll sound stupid but what's the difference between animated and rigged
>>389190459>nothing with a tail,shell, wings, etcwhat do you mean etc
>>389189102advanced technology will only exist in landfills in 100 years.
>>389190741GAMEDEV IS HARD
>>389191110rigged means it has a skeleton, ready to be animated. You can move the bones around and the rigged mesh will follow the deformation.Animated means its rigged but also comes with some animations already.
>>389190193Well, my characters are mostly human looking, some clothing sections are more important than anything else on the character, focus on eyes, chest and hair (this is the hardest thing)It's a style born out of limitations

>>389188852no they just serve webps if your browser says it supports them, because they're smallerthe only common contention people have is that they can't post webps on 4chan. i have no problems viewing or editing webps on my computer, but it is annoying that i can't post them. it's not webp's fault, it's hiromoot's.>>389190724they're different containers, but they both contain vp8/9 video.
>>389191339Ah so rigged means it can walk, animated eould be specific interactions, right?
>>389191362>mostly human looking>some clothing sections are more important>focus on ..., chestYou're not making some kind of animal girl porn Game, are you?>>389191620Rigged means you can make a walking animation for it, animation would mean it already has a walking animation.
>>389191487>it's not webp's fault, it's hiromoot'sWhy doesn't 4channel.org support webp when we were some of the first to support webm?

>>389193385Post concept Art?Will this be in the coming DD or the one after that then?
>>389192996>"gameplay is a series of interesting decisions"name a more memorable feel that agonizing over what inventory to drop to make space for the new item>>389193076>we're a fucking wojak + gigachad repositoryIsn't it great?
>>389190291I'm trainwiz's friend.
>>389193489>name a more memorable feel that agonizing over what inventory to drop to make space for the new itemputting on a quest cape for the first time
>>389191469Once, in a game about building, I made what is in my opinion the strongest build of the time. It excelled at everything.But there are thousands of other players out there also trying to make shit. Surely they would have come to the same idea, right?No. It excelled because it was so far off the beaten path that if other people even looked at the build or got beaten by it they were left in denial. The internals were incomprehensible and the design philosophy made absolutely zero sense in the same way as making a tank out of paper maché makes zero sense when your engine could easily carry steel plates.By god, people tried to copy it. By god, the developers tried to nerf it.But they couldn't comprehend what the fuck I was doing. If your idea makes ANY sense, you don't deserve that idea, it's everyone's idea.
>>389193482Currently wagecucking but sure I'll post it.And DD? I don't know, I go at my own pace, I just need to make a presentable scene that's a microcosm of the game/demo and then I can work it out.
>>389193928Me too. Anyone who is an enemy of r*nny is a friend to me
>>389193489Yes, every time I think of skyrim I think"Why didn't I get very far playing it?"and I think"Ah, because I tried to carry literally every dwarvern ingot item I saw and became a snail but I refused to take multiple painful trips or to ditch most of my inventory"and then I don't play it again.
>>389194223>I don't know, I go at my own paceThats nice, just make sure to keep having Fun with it.
sit up straight, dont want to get nerd neck
>>389194391Im lying down

>>389194391I'm sitting at a 45 degree angle on the z axis
>>389194315Hopefully Starfield will let you have a robo mule that sits outside new locations for you to dump loot into and ferries it back to your ship or something
>>389194674>everyone understands itMy brother in christ, boomers don't even know you can skip ahead in facebook videos
>>389194725it's not like magical pocket inventory ever made sense in the first place why do you need to slap a band-aid that makes it seem like it makes sense
>>389194315Just use a horse bro
>>389194725maybe you could make a game about that. retrieving items to send to your ship and then managing the time until you can send stuff back again.
>>389175386Having the mc literally call one of the enemies a faggot.
>>389195519Dome Romantik (they keep changing the name it's not that now) is basically that. 30% tower defence 70% managing trying to get resources to your base before tower defence begins again.
>>389195519>A space battle graveyard salvaging simulator>Hide from space police, loot valuables, manage your ships inventory, mule barely legal stuff, avoid space police controlsI could see that if done well.
>>389189402Made some more progress since my last post and feeling good about it. I added a mechanic for a pit that blocks movement, but can be filled with a box to allow passage.
programming npcs is so often unintentionally hilarious
>>389195748don't give me ideas while i'm working on a game ffs
I made this portcullis.My plan is to have sections of the tutorial closed and you gotta use these levers to open them. Little do the players know, the levers don't just open portcullises, but they are also going to be sending events gradually enabling more controls and mechanics. Players will then approach signs with explanation critical for them to progress to the next section.I think it is going to work well as a tutorial. I am happy with how it is shaping up.I look forward to the DD
>>389193489In roguelikes (real ones) sometimes your inventory space is limited and it's actualy a hard choice what to use what to drop and what to keep
>>389196271just add door triggers for some of that
>>389196271>fingergun activates lever I approve
>>389196473normal dungeon levels have triggers for opening doors.As for the levers, I can hook them up with anything, so that works really cleanly.
>>389196568Thanks, I just edited synty asset
>>389195748Isn't that just hardspace shipbreaker?
>>389196867I once tried doing that to a character. Thought maybe with just smooth shading they'd look alright, but they unwrapped all the Shadows onto a seperate color instead of letting lighting take care of it, so you'd have to reunwrap and completly retexture them.I don't actually use them for anything, I just wanted to see how it'd look like.
>>389195415>horses overcome carrylimit
>>389193164more like you hate yourself for not being willing to learn dumdum lol
>>389197193Isn't that just what now? I'm talking about some kind of 3rd person rpg with that as the focus, having to navigate through the internals of broken down ships, talking to various people on space stations and stuff, not just flying in there with your own ship Think similar to some of the Parts of Firefly. MIght also be a different space series, I binged a bunch years ago, and don't really remember which was which. You could then just slap some story on it that has you loot various places, maybe shoot some aliens and stuff if you wanted to, or just have generate encounters.
>>389196085>beginning AI dev for terrorism simulator>NPCs can pass off tasks if they're busy>NPC tasked with setting off suicide bomb>they pass it off to someone else because they're busy with "having lunch" task
>>389196451boring, just give me three random upgrades to choose from
>>389194315It's interesting that there's a bunch of games that you can "play wrong" and make the whole experience a lot more tedious for yourself
>>389197193>>389197740Nevermind, I looked it up, seems to be similar to what I had in mind.
>>389196682>door triggers and lever triggers use different logicoh no no no...
>>389197193>Isn't that just hardspace shipbreaker?oh well nevermind then>>389196575>fingergun activates leveri snorted
>>389197198I edit UVs anyway, because I use gradient maps, pic related. I am sure you could just unwrap the characters and handpaint some textures to make them look different.As for characters, I make my own. I have no intentions of using their characters. With so many things I do myself, I am quite happy to use assets I own to kitbash them, and make them look different to save me time.
>>389194725perfect opportunity to create some unique treasure item you unlock from a side quest but you know they will squander it
>>389198152no anon, the doors open with events. The levers invoke those events.It's your basic observer pattern
Starts in 7 days 10 hours
Can a girl make a game in 7 days and make money with it?
im starting to think that people who call themselves gamedevs are just losers who spend their time arguing about the most banal things on the internet (mostly Twitter) like what game engine is better instead of actually doing their work in silence
>>389199351-t. no dev
>>389199351>like what game engine is betterThats what sets /agdg/ apartit was settled long ago after much infighting and shitposting that Unity is the way
>>389199351You only think that because all the yesdevs are doing their work in silence where you can't see them
>>389199231Lots of girls make games. Good games, even. Maddy Thorson comes to mind
Anyone who knows to work around Unity's render pipelines: why can I not create the necessary rendering assets to enable Lightweight RP even though package manager shows Lightewight being installed to my project?

>>389199790cool very good lip syncing im impressed
>>389200157>6 yearsyour own fault btw instead of trying to make a name for yourself first and debuting with a simpler scope game
a unity tip: always do raycast object checks via the attacked rigidbody (raycastHit.rigidbody). this way colliders on the main object or their children are all associated to the same parent rigidbody. a noob move I did at one point was to make a separate check on the raycasted collider's parent.
>>389200345good, stay monke, more future for me
>>389200594>make game in 14 months>net revenue $90
>>389200879It's honestly terrible. The amount of time it takes to read whatever retarded inconsistent suggestions it constantly makes take longer than writing it manually let alone normal completion.
>>389200594>making a name for yourself while devving in silencenow thats autism

I'd play trainwizs game. Better hope he gives out enough keys.
it's too hot i can't think straight
>>389172692I don't know much about Unreal but Unity seriously sucks at lighting procedural scenes. I'd say it depends what sort of artstyle you're going for. Basically anything that's baked lighting (or probes) doesn't really work if you're doing procedural stuff so you're limited to what you can achieve with realtime lighting, ambient and whatever hacks you come up with.Honestly sounds like you're asking questions that you shouldn't be asking with your current skillset. Make a smaller game that you can make in any engine. Repeat until you've amassed enough knowledge to not have to ask these sorts of questions and you'll be in a better position to tackle a larger project.
>>389202108He really lives rent free in your head huh
I plan to buy trainwiz's game because i like space gamesi'll buy that grant money guy's game too if it's any good
>>389202247At least Unity can do procedural scenesunlike Unreal
>>389201595I'm making a game engine that uses Lua as its scripting languageMaking players scriptable = implementing them as things that you can use in scriptsCurrently you can do the following with players>iterate over all active players in a game through a special table>turn players on/off (by inserting/removing them from the table)>change their keymaps (keymaps themselves are scriptable userdata)>change the instance they control in the gameNow I'm working on making game screens scriptable so that means scripting features like changing what the screen tracks, changing the number of split screens, changing which direction they use when splitting etc.

>>389202817never heard of it lolso it's obviously garbage lolclutch some more pearls retard lol
>>389202573It's more that every single post you make is seething about a random dev and obsessing over social media. It's a pattern at this point that you do that, then suddenly disappear for the same amount of time as a ban takes, then come back and do the same thing over and over again.It's tiring. Post your game or be quiet.

i'm thinking about switching back to unity. i've become really good at unreal's c++ framework and have looked into a lot of stuff the has horrible to no documentation.i think i just want unity for comfy feels.also i don't want deferred rendering and unreals rendering pipeline is way too strict, also their forward shading is practically useless.
>>389203354>what the fuck do gamers use?I signed up with my email to get Starfield updates

>>389203804It's too late for me. I'm too used to Godot and can't leave it. All I can do is warn people not to do what I did and go use Unity instead.
anyone's dev days always end in depression and desperation as your increasing tiredness makes the task seem hopeless? a new day always starts with newfound optimism though.
>>389203614>people still fall for the bethesda garbagei guess they really never learn
>>389204051and then that optimism is quickly smushed into the dirt when i look at my game and realize how shitty it looks. then i post progress to try and get some constructive feedback, and the feedback confirms to me that it's shit.i don't think i'm emotionally secure or stable enough to be a gamedev desu.
>>389203354Gamers use twitterI know that because when the MMO I play goes offline I search for it on twitter to see if its offline for other people too and there's always comments about it in under 6min
>>389203726I was going to buy it just because its the latest Toddlikeso everything involving the ship was a bonus (modding/constructing, walking around inside, landing on planets, crew, FLYING, COMBAT) The flying looks heavy, which seems satisfying, hopefully the engine noise >inb4 "sound in space"is equally weightyI just want a simulated world I can hardscrabble on
I's actually just 7 gates, not bad.I think I am going to write all the signpost messages next. There is still one week + submission period for the DD, so I should be fine, but I am going to prioritise the most important parts just in case
>>389204425>how shitty it lookswhy are you willing to spend hours and hours on it, but not $20 for some nice premade artit WILL make you feel better about it
>>389202573In my experience with actual gamedev stuff you might get a few tweets with a lot of likes, but if you get a consistent 20+ likes on tweets and are constantly gaining new followers and such, that's usually a decent sign.Then again you're an idiot shitposter so no matter what I'll say you'll move the goalposts and then get mad.
I'd like to remind everyone here that most individuals actually making posts aren't actually game developers, but are in fact, Australians.
>>389204662The one confirmed australian is making a game though.

>>389204914Why the fuck are you using anything other than an LTS version of Unity?>>389205289Gamers are retards and won't notice that you're asset flipping if you're able to put them together into a cohesive scene and the gameplay is good. If you can't do that then you've got bigger problems to worry about and you should focus on developing your skills rather than worrying about your game looking like shit.>>389204452Gamers use twitter but not to follow game developers. They follow streamers, youtubers and other people of irrelevant nature. Sometimes a youtuber or a streamer might follow you and retweet your release tweet which can be huge though. But the main problem remains which is that you can't control if. Having some twitter presence is good but you shouldn't waste your time trying to build a following in twitter because there's zero guarantee for that to translate into game sales.Low effort shilling in reddit near to your game's launch is much more productive.
