Spherical News / Re: Forum updates thread
I really like the theme going on. It's easy on the eyes and says "Sphere". Thanks!
Same with Fat Cerberus. I didn't know Ctrl+PageUp/PageDown was a thing! I just tried in Chrome and it worked. Guess you learn something new every day.

I do use Shift+Insert to paste all the time, however. On a nice full keyboard, at least, it feels nicer with just the right hand.
  • Dispatch.onExit: Run some code on shutdown, after the event loop terminates.  This works even if the user manually closes the window!

I like this. This prevented me from writing a clean MMO in Sphere back in the day. I had to 'poll' every user to see if they were actually logged in or not every like 5 minutes. Good times, hahaha,
Since QSI won't have a source editor, I'm going to work on a Visual Studio Code extension for miniSphere API completion/documentation and possibly for interfacing with SSj.

I like this Visual Studio Code idea!

We apparently lost our favicon, too. I was looking at my bookmarks and couldn't immediately see the Spherical icon.
Engine Development / Re: miniSphere 5.1.0
I actually just fixed that with Surface.Screen. I installed the engine and editor with the installer and I indeed see 5.1.0 in the about config.

Anyways, I'm going to try and see what I can do with the new API. Things are much different. Better, but different so, I'll have to learn a few things.
Engine Development / Re: miniSphere 5.1.0
So, I download a fresh, clean copy of MiniSphere 5.1.0 and I run a new, default game in the editor and I get a reference error. It says 'screen' is not defined.

I'm thinking of maybe creating games again, hahaha. I have a Raspberry Pi and I'd love to see if maybe it's possible to have Sphere games run on it someday.

Merry Christmas! What you've done with Sphere in the last year is truly astonishing! Great work!!
Haha! I vote this Sphere GOTY 2017. :)
Engine Development / Re: miniSphere 5.0.0
Great work!! I'll definitely check this out when I get home!
Engine Development / Re: miniSphere 5.0rc
Release is still on track for the 31st so get ready, the best miniSphere release yet is almost here!  8)

Nice! Can't wait. :)
Projects / Re: Project ZeC (My Zelda-esque Clone)
That is a better explaination than the wiki. Although, not a fan of a "death" example. I've been trying to figure this out for a little while now. Based on that, any item stored in a map that the player collected would be part of 'world' so the variable can be stored in a save file?

Yes, this is a perfect example of storing things in a save file. :)
Projects / Re: Project ZeC (My Zelda-esque Clone)
Self: The current entity running the script. This applies to scripts that belong to people.

Map: This is the map scope. Writing data into this object is accessible by all entities and methods on that map.

World: This is the world scope. Writing data into this object makes it available to all maps and people. This is great to store quest variables and world reactions. A death of a person on map A  can be talked about on map C by writing the variables to that object.

Just noticed the mentions section on these new forums. I'm trying to read everything but there's been a lot of talk! Anyways here's some answers for ya'll:

As for Analogue, here is a version I had on github as a gist:

(I would use the gist tags, but the code gets long. The old forums shortened the window, and added a scrollbar.)

As for map transitions in Blockman, I'm uncertain I want to share that code as because I really need to recode that project for Sphere 2.0+ API. I'm waiting for that ChakraCore engine. :) I use a floating camera too and there are issues with the camera working correctly on Sphere 1.5 API. Basically the map transition scripts are activated when the camera hits past the edges of the map, not the input character. This makes things weird sometimes.
Sphere General / Re: Promoting Sphere?
Steam integration has been often on my mind. So I'm all in for that idea.
