Gamedev thread. ScorbunnyCountry code: blank.gif, country type: ponyflag, valid: 42096638[View All]

Hi! I'm planning to start learning how to develop a game. I found this thing called GB Studio and I hope to start developing a game like Yume Nikki or something for the Game Boy. Yes, you heard right. Game Boy. I honestly wanted to make a good homebrew for a console anyway.

Anyway, what are your plans in terms of gamedev? Do you plan on making something with RPG Maker or whatever else you can find?

Yeah, i mean for sure having more content would be a good thing. They might be working on it.

>>42097353
I didnt even know there was a combat system. Last time i played i think it was like, 2014 or so.
It was before i bought my house i know that, and that was 2015.

And puzzles! Need more puzzles.

I remember when I hanged out by this stranged circle of curved obelix and we we're wondering what it's purpose or if it was some sort of puzzle.

I remember that. I think one of the devs/mods showed up at some point to figure out what we were doing.

The seasonal goodies are pretty fun. I got the bat and reindeer costumes and ice skates.

Yeah, I was like...

"I've been clicking on them in random orders and I noticed two of these pillars are non-solid so I believe they're a clue for some event."

"Actually we simply forgot to make those two pillars solid. They're unscripted"

Other than that I remember submitting ideas to the FoE forums, such ideas as Zebras, Griffins and Changelings and how they can be hybrid classes of the pony-types.

Changelings = Magic / Fly types
Their magic consist of stealth, invisibility, illusions and disguises. May have low ♢regeneration but perhaps able to drain opponents of their ♢.

Griffins = Fly / Earth types
Sort of like tanks with wings. High endurance and good "pullers".

Zebras = Earth / Magic types
What they lack in spells they make up with potions, alchemy and throwing bottles of who-knows-what at targets which mostly nerf, buff, harm or other status changes.

I've never made anything in RPG maker officially. Nor have I ever worked for making stuff on a Gameboy.

The constraints actually seem like it could make you make some very interesting decisions and that I also love the idea of being given some constrained tool/idea set and working with in it.

It's really hard, say, opening up a blank project in Unity and just going "I guess it's time to be creative."
Or maybe it's because I work in it every day that it's hard to do stuff with it at home. But I honestly think it's because of just having too much empty space.

It depends if you have (or haven't) imported anything. An entirely new project can have compiler errors if you include certain packages.

I know I get problems with XR settings since they're very new (XR is just a centralized package for Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality).

You should be able to see errors from the Console tab!

They should make those pillars have some sort of easter egg or cool item. That would make for some fun game design.

Yeah, constraints add to the challenge in my opinion. With RPG Maker, you're working with tools that are usually used for, well, making RPGs. However, you can make other genres as well. I mean, Yume Nikki started out on RPG Maker as an adventure game. Pretty cool indeed.

>>42097430
Our initial thought was that it was the new gate to Tartarus or something. Tartarus was a neat easter egg in the mines back in the day but I think they just removed it altogether.

LoE could be so much more, but seems like most of the effort had to go into networking issues and making the game not crash/disconnect all the time. Which to be fair they did mostly solve.

I do like the concept of LoE being a large elaborate chatroom, but I would like something to do, quests and discoveries to bond over.

For example, what if whenever you board a train, you're taken to an intance dungeon which is the interior of the train in motion (moving skybox that gives the feel of movement). Depending on where you're going the instance will allow players towards the destination to interact with one another and give the sense of travelling.

Nah, just made a funny.

I think I rmemeber one of the reasons why I left the game. There was this pony called Loadsa Money who had a quest icon and I could't figure out how to finish the quest. Either broken dialogue options or the quest doesn't know it's finished or something.

Also, jumping is weird now. Holding down the jump button makes your pony squat down. I dunno why they implimented this given all it does is make yiour jump slightly delayed.

Now that I figured out how to fix my Garry's Mod map, I decided to continue making my Harry Potter GMod map.

Though given the size of it, I may have to split it into seperate maps and make it a linear story instead of an overworld map with three mini-dungeons.

Currently working on the "Goblin Dungeon" which is full of puzzles, though really should finish the forest.

I made a few pony models for the game a long time ago. yet another one of my mlp projects that went nowhere. but it was fun playing against Eraser bots Pinkie, Twilight, and Applejack on the Edge or Tokay's Towers.

Gloom was amazing. Blast was hilarious, especially in our custom dorm map. Classic Vortex is the best FPS I've ever played.

And yeah, the soundtrack kicked ass. I was pleasantly surprised when I found that the game's CD was also an audio CD so I could put it in my CD player and listen to it with that.
I didn't know it used real time lighting though, I always figured it just used lightmaps.

Nice! I didn't get into Quake multiplayer (or multiplayer in general, really) until Quake 3. I played the fuck out of that online.

>>42097820
>I didn't know it used real time lighting though, I always figured it just used lightmaps.
Maybe im wrong.
Though, things like the blaster lighting up a room dynamically along its path, that has to be real time doesn't it, because you can map something that you cant predict.
Maybe its doom 3 im thinking of.

Also, yeah, i loved CD audio on games to listen to on the bus haha. I got a discman one year for bday or xmas, but i had no music CDs, so that was found out pretty quick just by wondering what would happen haha.
Total Annihilation had really good music.

It's possible it could have lightmaps for environmental light that never changes and dynamic lighting for things like the blaster and such.
The original Quake CD is also an audio CD, that's how I got into ambient, especially dark ambient. The original Quake is also how I got into HP Lovecraft after reading that his stories influenced it.

Never just heard him talk for 2 and a half hours, and never realized really what his perspectives were.
Really good stuff.

>The original Quake CD is also an audio CD, that's how I got into ambient, especially dark ambient.

Haha i know! The funny thing is that the reason that i didnt have any music CDs but i had a discman was that the expectation was that my sister would share hers with me, which she didnt. So, when she wasnt allowed to get NIN albums, i lorded over her that i had one haha.

I think im going to play through Q1 again. Tis the right time of year.

Man, that's why you sneak into her room and borrow them so you can rip them to your computer and then reburn them to new CDs.

I thought it was funny that he liked miatas and MGs since those are my 2 favorite cars that i could conceivably afford haha.

I could have done that, yeah, except i was like 10, had a 486, and I'm pretty sure a CD burner was more money than all my Christmas and birthday money combined at the time haha.
I remember one girl in schools parents had one and it was quite a big deal.

And yes, playing quake on a 486 was pretty rough haha, StarCraft as well. I got a Pentium soon after and it was like this giant leap, so i got QII and ran that at 10fps. My games were always better than the system i tried to run them on haha.

I was (mostly) joking about burning/ripping CDs, I remember when dedicated CD burners were common.
I don't remember what system I played Quake or Quake 2 on for the first time, but I remember both running relatively decently. And the only PC built with gaming in mind that I've ever had is the one I'm using right now, so it's not like I was using a 90s Alienware.

That tower was my pride and joy. Got a 3DFX Voodoo 2, open GL heaven.
Running Q3, MoH AA and Return to castle Wolfenstein like a champ! Haha. GTA 3....

But then, i got windows XP for xmas... The disk was corrupt, formatted the drive but wouldnt install all the way, just gave an error message... And Microsoft did nothing for me besides to tell me to buy a new one...

The good times stopped rolling...
So i got an Xbox.
