Re: Drawing a textured line

Thanks! I forgot you can rotate UVs on quads. Wait... I don't need to, do I. I'm being a dumbass... :-)

Drawing a textured line

Hi folks, Moonring is coming along nicely, and I've started doing complex stuff like making bosses 'link' to other creatures you have to kill before you can hurt them. One of the things I required for this was an 'animating textured line with thickness'. I've horribly abused the drawImage so far, an...

Re: Moonring, a retro RPG by the guy who made Spellrazor [DEMO]

Thanks again for the feedback. It's a lot to think about! I'd not considered that anyone but hardcore nerdy retro-heads would ever be interested in this, so it's refreshing to get a viewpoint from people who weren't necessarily my target audience.

Re: Moonring, a retro RPG by the guy who made Spellrazor [DEMO]

Thanks again for the feedback! The thing that bugs me about giving players a joystick-friendly speech panel, though, is the inelegance of having two conflicting input options. If you expect to be able to pick from a sea of text options in a list, you'll *never* think of typing in something by hand (...

Re: Moonring, a retro RPG by the guy who made Spellrazor [DEMO]

Yeah, I think the keyboard is enough especially because of the dialogue part. But you type to reply to dialogue? Isn't that hard ,do you use text recognition(zork like maybe) or just like type yes. The game hilights words you've come across in conversation. You can use Tab to auto-complete words, s...

Re: Moonring, a retro RPG by the guy who made Spellrazor [DEMO]

Thanks for the lengthy response! That's a lot to think about. Some more notes from a player who has no experience with that sort of game: I read that there were some common keywords in Ultima games like job, name or health, but in Moonring I can't find working keywords other then the highlighted wor...

Re: [Solved] Super dumb question about uploading links to a .gif on these forums

Yeah, I went with the latter and hosted elsewhere: I keep a specific channel of my Discord as my 'gifs and pics' area, and link from there instead. I hatez computerz. Thanks for trying to help though, folks!

Re: Moonring, a retro RPG by the guy who made Spellrazor [DEMO]

Thanks for the feedback! I think it'll be pretty tough to make it controller-focused when the entire conversation interface with NPCs involves typing dialogue! I think the only things you'd get out of it would be: - Movement on the joystick - UI navigation on the joystick - Specific keys mapped to a...

Re: [Solved] Super dumb question about uploading links to a .gif on these forums

That's so weird. That is *not* working for me. I just get the little image icon.
I've changed the tag above to http, and it's still borky.

Re: Moonring, a retro RPG by the guy who made Spellrazor [DEMO]

Nope. No Android here, I'm afraid. Too much reliance on shaders. Too much thrashing of memory. Too much reliance on keyboard! I'm sure it's possiblt, but getting a game this size FINISHED is difficult enough!
