R.O.B.B.E.D. FINALLY UPDATE 4! weapon tweaks!collision!

Title
R.O.B.B.E.D.
Description
R.O.B.B.E.D. is a simple shooter programmed on the love2d engine by Jkash4 and Asep.
What we're attempting to do is make a bank heist stealth game in which you successfully eliminate all hostiles silently,take the loot and escape without being detected.
Though it is recommended to use complete silence and stealth, you have another choice which is rob the bank while rushing in and kill all guards with them on guard.

Stealth: L Alt

Sadly, jordan and I are busy for school and have no time to code and add updates to the game.... It's sad to say but we are abandoning the project and will start working on it again in the beginning of summer break, or when we're just not as busy in school as we are now. The last update for now will be released today. It will contain bug fixes, better collision and some new graphics. Thank you everyone for your support, especially ArchAngel075 for giving us the idea for better AI, this game wouldnt be the same without you

Re: Untitled Stealth Game

Seems to work nice, good proof of concept.

I assume the AI will be patrolling in the future, because right now, with a little patience, it's almost impossible to lose the game.

I noticed that shooting while moving slow is a problem on linux. Per default, lots of linux desktops use alt+click to allow the moving of the window. So when I move slow (alt) and shoot (click) it goes to pause menu while I hold down the button, instead of shooting, and lets me move the window around.

We are trying to improve the AI as much as we can

I guess next update the sneak button should change.

Re: R.O.B.B.E.D.

Awesome game dude!
I love the sound barrier idea, and it works!
though you should really try making the silencer do less addition to the enemy's sound barrier.
but over all its really fun!

Re: R.O.B.B.E.D.

absolutely loving the idea of the game, im note sure on how you put it together in your code, but i have a suggestion on AI.

guards have either roam or preset waypoints to navigate when there is no alert. In roam they will randomly move from random points, only setting a new point once they reached their current. BUT each time a check for the player making noise is done and if they are alerted.

Alerted, or spotting player :
Instead of psycho following the player, first check if the player is within a good range for shooting. If out of range then the guard moves directly to the player (as the psycho does now) once in range the guard will use the random waypoint system above but the waypoints try to make him stay within range of player.

When a guard gets low on health, he looks are surroundings and determines what barriers would obstruct the players bullets, he will then run directly for that barrier. he can wait it out trying shots by poking out the barrier or moving directly for a location of money.

-edit-

I looked at the gameplay video and got some updates on idea for AI.

Guards have a view range too, a cone infront of them, this makes it harder to escape in a straight corridor. Adheres to the alert system above.

If you can, try makign a more dynamic sound system. When a guard takes a hit, a cone of sound alertness (like the green circle atm) grows in that direction, this means fire from one spot or close in the same area and the guard grows alert to that area, if a guards helathj is high enough he will attempt to move slowly towards that point if the alertness reaches a certain point. If low on health the guard can move up to another guard at higher HP and passes 50% of his alert ness of that direction onto him (groups of guards be deadly).

Guards on low hp will also attempt to avoid the bullets flying further in their direction but examining their last angle of being hit and their strongest alert cone. Moving away from these points will have him avoiding.

On cones :
cones can be a oject of sorts held by guards, so a cone is genererated when no other cone in that direction overlaps with a base sized cone already somewhat in that direction. IE when guard heard from 45 degrees, and cone is 5 large, now he hears from 50 degrees and this overlaps with prev cone, so make the prev cone swivel and grow in the new direction. Perhaps guards have a limit of cones at a time.

The cone idea is pretty hard to implement (especially above swivel and overlap), but makes interesting gameplay as a player can make noise in one area to extend a guards cone and attract them without alert, then player can move off into another area to complete objectives.

...

I also think that time in a rush is crucial, cause the longer you take the more backup guards can arrive. Going in during a rush may be easy but getting out will be harder!
