Game Development / Re: The Screenshot Thread

Made more progress


Adding a Colossus since most of it is Ico/Shadows of Colossus inspired
01. water, 02. windmill, 03. big tree, 04. swamp tree need to be better
Problems with the wall still -- needs cleaning, hard to read
And the coliseum requires completion

@Eggbert: haven't named it yet, was making this game for you guys, so was hoping one of you could name it

Is there any documentation, projects or JS-script examples one could read over as an example of how that would be implemented?

Hellos and Byes / Re: So sphere is still a thing!
Welcome back. Here's to hoping for enough free time soon to add to Aquatis a bit
I play regularly almost three times a week, occasionally wanting to add in some quest lines
But do understand the pressure of work, glad to know you're doing well with an awesome job
Hope you'll keep us updated or let us know how we can follow any new projects

^What the title says: does sphere require blank maps to create new ones,
Or can you generate new map files using the API?

Asking cause currently attempting to code a random-map generator but see no support in API

Site Comments / Re: Discord server
I agree with Radnen, but prefer Slack tbh -- as that's what pixelart communities like pixelation use
@Casiotone Don't however agree with considering forums as outdated, as they're great content aggregators if designed properly
Can't say I agree with the current site design tho, do prefer the old one but will certainly adapt to the change if necessary

Site Comments / Re: Sphere Wiki is Dead

Should someone (me?) create a wikia.com wiki until the main wiki is usable?


Yes if you would please, I've certainly use to reference the wiki-page all the time
But I have been using the Web Archive's Wayback Machine for now

Game Development / Re: The Screenshot Thread




Made some progress and new updates, posting to appropriate thread
Have most of the basics down (tile-movement, stats, etc.) -- just needs to be simplified and finished

Still have a few issues however regarding select objects
01. the Windmill
02. the Big Shaded Tree
03. the Walkway
04. House Door
05. Small White Tree
06. the Brick Wall
07. Mossy Swamp Tree
08. the Log Fencing

Could use edits, advice and critiques on such

Sphere Support / [JS] Question -- Script Help

What is the difference between local variables and "this" when writing objects?

  gotten a lot of the ideal gameplay worked out with a spiral notebook containing all of my notes


Next part would be to outline a working battlesystem -- the dynamic Hitbox feature is a problem for Sphere
There is a program called Mugen that allows this but it is more focused on sidescrollers than top-down RPGs

If intended on using Sphere, it's possible to cut or simplify certain features to remain
Otherwise it's possible to use/switch/replace spritesets in-game for variation between hitboxes -- checking for overlap from enemy sprites on another layer

been considering moving away from sphere to make use of 3d models


If you're able to sketch/draw, then deal with the workload it'll certainly be recommended but I would seriously consider sticking to 2D for simplicity sake

I am bad at spriting animations still


This is certainly some area I can help in for free -- send me some screenshots/concepts with tile/sprite/resolution size and I'll certainly pitch in.

The main idea here would be to think of the project as a sum of parts rather than finishing as a whole

Hellos and Byes / Re: Hello Everyone
@scojin - finished projects is a cursed topic here if I remember right :p honestly start small, and work towards tech demos

Kinda of feel like the community has died a little - there isn't much conversation now besides updates to engine alternatives
Even though there are a few friendly faces I remember from 2009 to 2011 that are still active

How has everyone been?
Kamatsu, Tung, Musashi (Chris), Neologix, East, rhuan, Metallix, Radnen (flik), DaVince, Bruce (FatCereberus), Harrybo, Eggbert, Beaker, Firetalon, etc.

Libraries / Persist.js

Does anyone have a copy of Tung's persist.js script?

It was used to store variables and define events for maps

Projects / Re: Poncho [Unreleased] [Pre-Development]
Hey mezzo, just wondering if there's any updates on this project?

Was interested in seeing a release - I would be happy to lend help if necessary

Hellos and Byes / Hello Everyone
Lurking and doodling in some projects, dropping in to say "Hi"
Currently using Sphere v1.5 on Win7

Having some issues with CTDs from the new editor Sphere Studio on startup
Just curious as to what is the stable community recommended version of Sphere that's being used?

From what I understand to choose from there's:
01. Eggbert's emulator
02. Radnen's Sphere Studio
03. the mini-Sphere Engine
04. the SFML Engine
05. FJ's TurboSphere

Also, any new projects/games from anyone? Loved Sir Boingers and Knights Tale
And thank you Vince for helping with the account stuff
