Hello this is Pencerkoff

The Game wouldnt run. Do I need XNA,  says 'encountered a problem and needs to close'
nice music.

The game should run in windows, so long as the folder was kept as is.  I made this in GM so I really couldn't fix it even if I knew what the problem was.  I'll ask about this in a technical GM thread.

Maybe a resolution thing if it runs in fullscreen? Looks fun, btw. I'll try it when I get home. A suggesting is to change the controls so it's playable on a keyboard with no numpad. Smiley (Sitting at a Mac right now made me think of this.)

Hello this is Pencerkoff

Pretty sure it's just the guy's computer. One possibility is an inadequate graphics card... if the graphics card does not support Direct3D, or has less than 64 MB of memory, it wont be able to run the game.

Perhaps ask him to try running a different Game Maker game, and see if he gets the same results?

Sorry Glinka.  Sounds like you can't run any GM games.

(Sitting at a Mac right now made me think of this.)

I couldn't get a good key combination for both players on the same keyboard without the numpad.  GM doesn't handle the < > ? keys which would be ideal.  Single player works, though.

I'm sure if you took a poll, you'd find that most play-testers are single players.  Glad you like it.

I tried it on a different machine and found it worked, not only that but I tried the wrong game at first. the music was from 'Stand off'  http://forums.tigsource.com/index.php?topic=18119.0 The theme_song
I mustve been thinking about you or just dl Star Ship when I tried StandOff

Star Ship rocks. psychedelic intro screen,
Love the camera z_position based on the players_distance from each other.

I had a hard time finding player2 controls (still havent) and player 2 seems to be the human player in singleplayer.

Okay, I made a version for all you anti-numpad guys.  Up on the first post.  Now uses I O P for weapon controls.  I guess it works, but who really knows.

Appreciate the feedback Glinka.

JESUS! I love the music. I strongly recommend anyone play cheapshot_Rush.ogg in the music folder or listen to the full track on the ship select menu. GENIUS

Pencerkoff can you hear me?

Pencerkoff can you here me?

The full song can be found through the cheapshot link I posted in post 1.  All music in the game was shortened for space constraints.  Hope nobody finds that offensive.

I can firmly declare that I cannot "here" or hear you.  Sorry.

On the plus side, the music is awesome, the movement of the ships was smooth and fun, along with the zoom which gave a nice effect.

However, we didn't understand how to shoot at each other.
Out of the 3 buttons, only one seem to respond (to both of us), the one that creates a white line that doesn't stop. The other two buttons didn't appear to do anything..

That sounds like your ship didn't have any missles or guns on it.  The "white line" sounds like a laser, but those should stop once you release the button.  Might involve a keyboard issue where you have too many keys pressed down at once.  I can't predict every keyboard, nor can I figure out how to let you choose your own keys (GM doesn't seem too friendly there). 

Does single player work okay?  Because the shooting really is the best part of a shooting game.

Ah, that is the problem. We didn't know that we have to add missiles or guns to the ship, it makes no sense, we'd expected to have them as defaults. We just started playing right away, we weren't really interested in the menu that modified the ship. I think you need to change that.
I tried it again, and used the menu to arm my ship. I think that this menu is too complicated, you should make it more intuitive.
Yes, it was definitely more fun now that I was able to shoot!

Nah, not a keyboard problem, we were well aware that releasing the button stops the laser, but why would we, when it's the only weapon we got and it hurts the opponent, there really is no reason to release it ever...

You have the best title screen of any game in the composition I have played yet, even if I lose sight of the ship cursor occasionally.

It sucks when your weapons get knocked off and you just sort of have to wait to get killed. Would have been cool to have the ability to ram, or self destruct, or ram while self destructing kamikaze style.

Also, would have been cool if the ship looked different depending on the build.

All in all good entry it's a pleasure to take in, nice job guy.
