I think I'm alright with the current roster Smiley.

Alright then, still anxiously awaiting more updates. Also, yes. The animations do look nice.

Oh and BTW, disabling camera scroll is actually really easy, at least it was for me. Just read through the level file before the stage starts, have it set a min and max scroll integer for each axis (maxX,maxY,minX,minY) to the x and y position of the lowest and highest X value respectively, and have an if() statement around the part of your code that scrolls to see whether or not its at the minimum or maximum limit. Or at least, that's how I did it...

Progress Update

Game runs great locally, runs like crap online. Going to change some stuff around to trust the client a bunch since hey, we're playing with friends anyways right? It should make the game much more playable. I'll let you guys know when it runs better.

Here's the current version setup so it will only play singleplayer:
https://dl.dropbox.com/u/53265438/Gunbox.rar

I don't want to bother making it so you can play multiplayer with it because it truly is unplayable unless you're on a LAN. So feedback is welcome but the next update will just be multiplayer running fine.

Run server.exe in the server folder, and then run client.exe in the client folder.

I tried this yesterday and it worked pretty good except for typing in the chat which can become a bit annoying. It tends to print out letters too fast.... perhaps add some delay?

Glad to hear it ran alright, yeah I still don't have text input nailed down but I'll figure it out soon. I have to do it before the next Six Sided Sanctuary update, so.

Restarted from scratch to get it running better, currently done:

Loading maps, very much improved, currently not from the server though
Movement, now local and much smoother
Pistol, pew pew

Reset devlog icon accordingly. The game now actually runs in a fashion that isn't disgusting Smiley

Added in mobs, now also local (though the server will sync them every once and a while)
Added in "vending machines" use them to start rounds, buy guns, gamble

I've changed the design of the game a bit. I plan on having different game modes now, the super crate box clone will be a small piece of the game, and not the main mode. The main mode will be survival, where you can buy upgrades to yourself (additional speed, damage, armor, gun of your choice, etc)

In survival you try to get through as many waves as you possibly can with your team. Not sure if every map will support every mode, but most likely this will be the case.

Added in the gunbox vending machine, takes money and gives a random weapon
Added knockback from enemies, and health

Here's a video of what I have so far:

Thos blue popup things show what you're doing to other players, and they can take your reward from the gunbox if you feel like sharing.

Those little yellow things the mobs drop are coins/xp/whatever you'll use it to buy upgrades and guns.

The top left thing is a progress bar of how many enemies you killed/are left.

Not sure if you ever fixed it, but you spelled grenade as "genade".

Some backgrounds in the game now.

lol, never noticed. This is completely rewritten from scratch though so I'll make sure I spell it right this time Smiley

Gotta add in bats (half done, for some reason they won't cooperate, gotta try at a later time) and upgrade machines next. Not sure what I'm going to do with the different skins but I'll definitely use them.

Sorry you had to restart, trust me, I feel your pain. Anyways, at least it looks like you're getting back to where you were pretty fast! Keep up the good work!

Sorry to hear you've had to restart, I didn't but I wanted to clean up the game a bit more and make it run better. Yeah I have mostly everything I had before.


Main menu will be interactive just like Spelunky  Noir
The speech bubble thing is for logging in. The idea is you login with that and then the house opens up, inside the house you will enter an ip and then jump in the pit. There will also be stats and stuff in the house. Yes I know it isn't a house right now and it's badly mapped, but that's because it's still a concept ;p

Launching a local game will be possible too, and won't require logging in.

I'm not really fond of the mixed pixel sizes, but looks wonderful otherwise

Anything that isn't the correct size of pixels is most likely because it's a placeholder Smiley

Just a video of what I have so far. I'll have a demo once I fix the following:
Remove players when they leave
Smooth out player movement
Restart when everyone is dead
Flip other players when they change direction

You will need an account here to play:

(Let me know what your username is because I'm going to keep the game in a private beta sorta thing while I'm still working on it)

Added you both to the beta group, so you should be able to see a forum that was previously hidden Smiley. I'll post the build in there but I'll post here when I have up the builds.
