Okay, tuns of progress on my part, but first....
Hey Dragonmaw, Im downloadin the new build of slashers as we speak, but I was wonderin if you needed more music for it, or just havent implemented the code to play back what I sent you before. If its the former, I could pretty easily cook up some more midi's and throw em your way, just let me know what you are goin for and how much like the original you want it to be.
Now then, this is a direct copy/paste of the message I sent out to my testers, soooo yeah.
Ohboy! You can actually make it from level 1 all the way too level 3! Well, at least I can, sometimes.
Lookin for some feedback, but first and foremost....
STUFF I ALREADY KNOW!
1.Birds dont do anything when they die.
2.Sometimes Bubba teleports when he hits a cliff.
3.Some enemys push each other around, or into you.
4.This isnt actually a bug, but sometimes when you jump off a cloud in level 2 you don't go very far. This has to do with the velocity of the cloud being transmitted to the player, and is totally on purpose.
5.All dogs have the same name, as do all birds.
6.Some audio that seems like it should be there isnt.
7.Bubba's status icon is a ninja in a trucker hat, and not bubba.
Okay, now then, any comments, suggestions or other bugs, I would love to hear. I would also be interested to know if there are any places with noticeable slowdown, along with your computers basic specs (Only really worried about processor, ram, OS, and to some extend video card) and what version of flash you are running (It runs worse in 10.1 then any other version, but no worse then everything else runs in 10.1 as far as I can tell.)
After that, the questions are basically 1.Is it fun? 2.How far can you get? 3.Did anything confuse you?
and, lastly, what your average fps is (you can hit ` to see it, Im more interested in times when slowdown is actually noticeable then I am in knowing that it happened however, as Im using the time elapsed between updates for most of the timing in the game, so it takes a fair bit of framerate drop to actually break it.)
On another note, currently the two songs in the game are actually the same song, just with changes made to tempo, instrumentation, effects (Thus the guitar sounds pretty different on both) and rythm. So, basically they are both me doing stylized covers of the original game music. Its kind of fun seeing how many directions I can run with one progression, so Ill probably continue to make more level specific music in slightly different directions (Im thinkin level 5 will be surf-ninja, mostly because then I can turn that song into surf rock and that sounds like tuns of fun.)
Level 4 is basically done, but you cant actually get to it without changing settings in the code, because I havent made the cutscene or figured out how the hell you go from the top of a tower to a lake yet. Im thinkin you will get knocked off somehow, or the thing will blow up, and you will just land in the lake level, but Im totally open to suggestions, if anyone comes up with some rad way to transition levels.
