0 comments by johnmatthais on Oct 4th, 2012


I finally added pathfinding to my Ludum Dare game from April. Hopefully this will end a lot of problems with the game, the biggest being that people would commonly get stuck on buildings.

The pathfinding solution actually uses Game Maker's built-in paths, so I'm not sure how reliable they are just yet, but I'm giving them a shot in IPSA, and if they don't work out, I'll find a new solution for later projects.

If anyone notices any other oddities, leave a comment, and I'll fix it right up. :)

Oh, tomorrow begins my week of hell. Hoping that being sick, dizzy, and lethargic recently isn't going to make it completely unbearable. :/

@frogatto And I specifically told him I didn't want to be involved until X amount of story was done and I could read it.

@frogatto He also chose the engine for us even though he can't program.

@frogatto Before he's even gotten some writing done.

@frogatto But the short of it is he wants me and some other programmer to start programming a visual novel with no art and no story.

@frogatto There's more but I'm waiting to see if he just wasn't thinking at all or if he's really that naive before sharing.

@bansama I'm not expecting it. I'm just expecting that they would have had some level of repercussions by now.

1hour 10mins ago

@bansama Yeah but they should also do basic checks to make sure that things as recognizable as the WoW human model weren't stolen.

1hour 24mins ago

@nullterm No but in cases like this, it's painfully obvious. Like, they stole the WoW human model.
