Re: Official "A Whiff of Steam", the LövelyRPG project topic

Actually, part of iteration 2 is to add a point-and-click method of navigation to the prototype. For that I think we should change the character's movement so it matches the angles of the tiles in all 8 directions.

Re: Official "A Whiff of Steam", the LövelyRPG project topic

You should alter his diagonal movement to match the actual angle of the tiles. It would work if you used 45º tiles, but you use a different perspective so the movement doesn't work right currently and would make the game play awkward when finished. Yea, I mentioned the awkwardness of that in the up...

Re: Official "A Whiff of Steam", the LövelyRPG project topic

As promised, my update: I've done some work on iteration 2 of the first prototype. The character I created is a rectangular prism. He has 8 different visual states for the different directions he can be facing. He can move across the screen at the specified speeds (4 seconds to "run" vertically acro...

Re: Official "A Whiff of Steam", the LövelyRPG project topic

I've already read the docs, I just need to read both threads some design inspiration see: http://steampunkpics.blogspot.com/ http://www.ottens.co.uk/gatehouse/author/Armat http://featur...

Re: Official "A Whiff of Steam", the LövelyRPG project topic

Also, apparently I've been living under a rock because I've just discovered PÄSSION . PÄSSION looks nice, it looks like it is under active development, and it has things like ui elements and events/message passing built in. And it's build on top of MiddleClass, which we're currently using for the pr...

Re: Official "A Whiff of Steam", the LövelyRPG project topic

Admittedly, I've not read this entire thread, but I'm down for musical assistance when the time comes, since it's the only thing I'm 'good' at. Sweet! I recommend you read through the whole thread, this thread as well, and the docs . It's really not that big a read, but it'll give you a good idea o...

Re: Official "A Whiff of Steam", the LövelyRPG project topic

Okay, I agree with you. This is just a concept :) I wasn't trying to cut your work down by the way :) I was merely suggesting that we can't really make a logo for a game that hasn't been designed yet. But Robin is right, we have enough to concept on. Keep up the good work :) I'm excited that this p...

Re: Official "A Whiff of Steam", the LövelyRPG project topic

I've been created a logo for the game lately, any thoughts of it? :) http://codaset.com/kalle2990/a-whiff-of-steam/source/master/raw/doc/artwork/name_Pipes.png (Picture is a direct link to Codaset and might break later) IMO I think we should develop the game's style and story more before trying to ...

Sweet! I just read over the story outline and it does look pretty cool. It worked in pretty much everything from the focus document.

Re: Official "A Whiff of Steam", the LövelyRPG project topic

FYI, I made a version of the prototype that doesn't have a FSM and where everything exists in main.lua. It's in the proto1-remove-fsm branch. Do you guys like that better?
