They ... may do ...
Why does it force you to stop playing often? Any money you pick up after your wallet is full goes straight to the bank.
The reason we added the wallet system was so people could carry money persistently between games (which is necessary for some of our future updates), but without unbalancing the game (for example someone coming in with a few hundred thousand and just constantly buying the best guns / opening all the rooms / blah).
It pretty much works like before, the only difference is you can start with money and there is a wallet cap.
It dosen't stop you earning money in any way shape or form, definitely wouldn't stop people doing that, that defeats the point of the game lol. Maybe I should make it more clean that money over the wallet balance goes to the bank, I figured the tutorial message that pops up every 10 minutes when your wallet is full was enough.
Oh god you've been playing to much mvm :P
Nah lol. This is a one-off.
Still aiming for an overworld design for the main game in future.
How do you even comment as a guest on desura O_o, it asks me to login lol.
Can't, copyrighted :P. Might release a mod file or something with the zelda overworld tho.
Theoretically any number, but I will probably limit it to 4. A lot of the fun of exploring dungeons and stuff kinda goes out the window if you just have lots of people rushing around.
How does making a donator edition not make it a shooter O_o.
And we sure aren't doing what TF2 did, there is no in game economy, there is no buying items for money, all there is a donator edition with a handful of rewards, nothing to get upset over.
Gems are dropped randomly from zombies. You can buy them as well but they are extortionately priced, your meant to find and combine them :3
Basically, stats have been removed for all hats. Instead each hat/item has 2 combine slots which you can place gems into (or ammo modifiers, and a few other bits and pieces), the gems give your characters stats a boost (different types of gems give different boosts). Each type of gem has 5 levels, the lowest has a tiny boost on stats, the highest has a large boost, you can combine 2 of the same level gem together to get a higher level gem.
Basically its just to allow people to choose the stats their items have while still allowing them to customize their character (jordan didn't like the last system as it lead to people always using the same hats with the better stats).
tl;dr: Think diablo.
Sorry :(. Japan was the closest datacenter I could find for australia (I actually was looking! I know we have quite a few Aus players). The providers available in australia are either retardedly expensive or not really up to the task of running game servers on.
More detailed explanation please? :)
Games not uploaded yet, only the development branch (testing version). Wasen't expecting it to be made public quite yet lol. You can download the current version from indiedb Indiedb.com until I finish adding everything in :3
Do they use shader's and FBO's for the effects though? We use them pretty heavily for some of the effects (rippling the screen on explosions, grey-scale low health effect, etc).
Ideally I need to provide some fallback for when they are not available. - So I'm coding one at the moment ;).
> Intel GMA X4500
That is almost certainly your problem, the game uses 3d acceleration, including FBO's and shader extensions, I'm not sure an integrated chipset will be able to cope with that.
If you want to try it on your other machine that would be handy :3
I'm going to go decode that stack trace and find out what it was.
Huuuum, odd. I can't see why it's dieing after that part. The only thing I can think of is possibly your graphics card dosen't support some of the features in use.
What are the specs of your computer?
Can you install gdb and do the following commands and paste the ouput (sorry for all the work lol :3).
> gdb "Zombie Grinder"
Do you even get a window appearing before it segfaults?
Bit longer than 30 minutes.
Just patch it over the executable, and run as root. Also log files should (hopefully) produce more output if its still crashing :3
Making a quick patch, give me half an hour :3
Thinking about it, log files are disabled by default I think. You can enable them in cfg\Zombie Grinder.ini under log:enabled.
I'm pretty sure your dependencies are fine, nothing is missing.
I don't suppose your sound server is pulseaudio is it? Someone else had an issue with that.
As for gdb, if you don't have experience using it to debug, probably best not to try lol.
Should be a delete button at the bottom of your comment?
Anyhow, I assume you've done the whole ldd Zombie Grinder and installed all the dependencies? If so, does the game get far enough to dump a log file (check in logs folder). If not, perhaps hook in with gdb and get me a memory address and give me your computer specs, and I'll try and hunt it down?
My knowledge of linux is pretty poor, so this might take a while lol.
What is it you hate about the spawning system? Any suggestions? (Though I agree somewhat, not really sure I like how spawning works - but can't think of a better one that works well with network bandwidth).
By the way guys, new update (version 150 now!) is live, go check it out :3
Options menu in game, find correct textbox, type code in, click register ;)
What about my mug, why do I not get a click because of it D:
1. More or less an unavoidable problem with tile based games, might replace the fences with depth ordered sprites if I get the chance and it doesn't use up to much performance.
2. I agree with that one, it is rather odd. Bare in mind that the maps in the demo were made by me in the week or so before minecon, so they won't be perfect :3
That would be, because I pretty much just copied it lol. May not stay looking like that though ;)
Open Beta drops when Jordan shows it off at Minecon in November :3.
That's actually a random effect I nicked from a zelda game until jordan has a chance to sprite any. It won't be in the final version.
Totally should have made a newer trailer before uploading this Jordan :P
Yup. It's free and always will be. However if people want to throw some money at us we have some random goodies available in-game for donators :).
Glad you like the game.
Which server were you trying to join? And have you validated your files?
Check forum thread.
lol, why are you even asking? Have at it.
Cool videos :)
The **** O_o. That bat file should bypass any launcher updating.
Huum, gimmie a little while to try and work this out lol.
The error message means it can't overwrite the launcher executable. Not sure what would cause this, but you can bypass it if you copy this into notepad, save as a bat file then double click it;
echo Starting ZombieGrinder without launcher, please wait ...
ZombieGrinder.exe -launcherpath ""
As for mapping tutorial;
Or you can ask me when I'm in chat :)
Find the EXE and run it with admin rights.
Keep trying :P.
Sorry, I've been doing some maintenance to the servers over the last few days, the master server has been taking a bit of time to respond to requests while I've been doing this.
I'll add a choose-your-own-color paint at some point, been meaning to for ages. And yeh color-remover too :P
What platform are you on? FMOD should work on pretty much anything.
If your on windows vista or above, you can *try* doing this, it may work, depending on what your issue is;
Open the file:
Find the section [audio]. The following line should be a few lines below it;
It will tell you you need to update if you try and run the game manually from the game exe, you need to run it through the launcher or via command line (what that bat file was meant to do).
What OS are you running on? And what are your computer specs?
Try downloading this bat file and running it, see if that helps.
Ohhhh nooo. That's something else that hasn't been released lol. There aren't any permanent items related to what your talking about at the moment.
Are you playing via desura? And have you made sure your desura copy is updated (check for a refresh icon near the Zombie Grinder item in the games list).
Your not the only person who had this problem, it appears there seems to be some kind of permissions issue at times when launching from within desura. Easiest way to bypass this, until I can work out what the issue is, is to use the standalone launcher, which you can get from twindrills.com
Item available until February? O_o
And yeh, you'll see why the donator versions are not up on twindrills.com soonish!
And, nope, its an intentional game mechanic.
Do you mean the flag in the scoreboard?
Sorry you can't, its done using a GeoIP database lookup, its not directly modifiable.
Nothing and yes.
By the sounds of it you have an integrated graphics card. The game use hardware accelerated graphics so that's probably whats choking it. Not really much you can do to sort that out I'm afraid :S
You should be able to get all the information by running dxdiag.exe (windows 7 = start menu + run + type in box and hit enter). The System tab and the Display tab should contain all the information required on your CPU/RAM/GPU.
Computer specs plz?
You can try putting the graphics quality down in options and turning off shaders if you want, that will remove some unnecessary effects and might give you a bit of a performance boost.
No it won't increase the reload time (it will in the next patch! I forgot to add it lol).
And yes gems will affect everything your character uses when he has them equipped.
map names will be reserved so you can't have multiple people with the same map name in the browser. You can upload the same map multiple times, but only the most recent will show in the browser. You can not delete maps (because this causes issues with people running older versions of the maps when you delete it).
Long story short, it should all work itself out XD
Pointless extra rendering time for something few people would notice. Gravestones fade out after a few seconds anyhow.
Well aren't you polite.
Could you at least be more specific about what your doing? We currently have 19,000+ registered accounts, who seem to have no problem with saving and account persistence (especially given the game would not work, and you would not be able to login or connect to servers otherwise!), so what you say is quite unusual.
