Game Development / Re: The Screenshot Thread
This is turning out to be excellent and aesthetically pleasing - yet also retro in a way. I'm a fan of the shading.
Spherical News / Re: Forum updates thread
Thanks - fixed. :)
Spherical News / Re: Forum updates thread
Just a note: I tried updating ElkArte to the latest version but something seems to have gone wrong. I reverted the update but we've lost useful plugins for now. Will attempt to fix this once I figure out how to get the new version of ElkArte installed. Registrations are disabled until I figure it out. Sorry for the inconvenience.
Resources / Re: Free sound effects for your projects.
This is great! I've noticed a trend where entirely too many people rely on Sfxr or Bfxr for their sound effects, making the sounds always sound the same. It makes a game lose its uniqueness characteristic a little.* So it's very nice to have some libraries of sound effects readily available like this.

Additionally to your links, the Spherical Downloads Drive also has a bunch of sounds and music readily available for any game projects. Those are developed by the community members over here, and are available over here.

*To be fair, I also used Bfxr in Sir Boingers but that's before everyone started doing it. I'd replace them if I still worked on that game though.
Projects / Re: Project ZeC (My Zelda-esque Clone)
That sounds less like development hell and more like a forced hiatus! It's nice that you're still keeping busy by thinking of new ideas, however. Can't wait to see what you'll show us once you're able to continue developing the game. :)
Site Comments / Re: Discord server
I do like Discord, but does it seem like it kind of killed forum activity? This wouldn't be the first time I've seen this happen to a community.
Rather than that, I've noticed that when there's a lot of activity on the Discord, there tends to be more activity on the forums as well, and when the Discord is quiet, the forums are also quiet. In our case, I guess Discord promotes quick development and discussion of things which then find their way back to the forums.
Game Development / Re: DragonBall Z: Saiyajin Legend
I've seen some of this on before and I gotta say... this looks impressive and excellent, and I can't wait to see a release. And I say this as someone who's not even into DBZ. Nice work!  :D
Off-Topic Discussions / Happy new year everyone!
I'm spending time with my wife in Texas right now, so it'll still be a few hours before it turns midnight here, but...

Happy new year, everyone!

I hope you all have a very good 2018!
Engine Development / Re: miniSphere 5.1.0
@Radnen If you feel like it, you could join the Discord chat while experimenting with the new API. Really helps to leave feedback on it especially when you find a bug, or you'll get a quick response on how something works. :)
Engine Development / Re: miniSphere 5.0.1
Looks pretty good to me, and generic enough to Just Work on both platforms.
Sounds like a grand, ambitious, fun project! Looking forward to seeing more. :)

GUI library
If it helps, Rhuan has created a very nice HUD system you might be able to leverage. (see HUDSystem.mjs here)

Code gremlin repellent system
First we had eaty pigs :pig_nose:, now we have code gremlins?!
Libraries / Re: MapEngine for Sphere v2
I think this thread could benefit from some visual benefits that the map engine offers! I'll start by showing the zooming capabilities of the map engine, as well as the flexible HUD/GUI system that is built around it.
I've been using the map engine already and it's solid, fast and has a nice feature set! Good job on this, Rhuan. :)
Editor Development / Re: The Sphere Studio v1.2.1
Also for some reason I had to run mono with sudo otherwise it gave me an error upon trying to access the registry.  Kind of weird.  Also strange is how the error I get is always different every time I revisit this...
Linux doesn't even have a registry, so it's even weirder that it DOES get past that point with sudo... Try not to run with sudo though. Graphical applications really shouldn't be run with sudo.

WeakReference seems to be part of mscorlib, which is something you have to explicitly install:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt install mono-complete

Edit: wait, that was with Wine? Weird, it's starting up just fine in Wine here.
Engine Development / Re: miniSphere 5.0.0
Nice work, and a solid release! :))
