Hard to know who to trust any more.

And this "https?" Is it alright to trust these URL's?



Added some NPC's, a shop, an inn, working on a save room.

Taking advantage of the 3D rendering to Paper Mario styled building design.

Nothing major today, added selective camera angling.

Now the player can pan around the area and see what's ahead/behind walls and corners.



The camera can either allow rotation along the X axis, Y axis, X and Y axis freely (Free rotation) or No Rotation (Meaning te camera can't be moved)

Yay! My harddrive died.

I can't access my FTP server.

Whoo hoo for month old backups on Google Drive... *sigh*

Ouch, sorry to hear that.  I back up my ongoing projects everyday to avoid that kind of thing.

Thanks Vincent, I'll take the good with the bad: I have a new PC now which runs the game faster with my 8 month old backup and I'm a much better programmer now due to the classes I'm taking.

I'm glad to have this forum's support :)

Alright, a new PC is always good news!  There's euphoria coming with that usually. :)  Enjoy!

I'm sure you're getting better.  If you get to a point where you don't get better, then you're in trouble.  When I open up applications I developed a couple of months ago, I can always find some things I could have done better.  And that's a good thing, it means that I'm still improving, even after all these years. :)

Anyway...  I hope you're getting back on your project with renewed enthusiasm. :)

Keep going man, I can't wait to see how your project turns out.  :D

Thanks again Vincent:

Update I guess?

I don't  have any screenshots, but I've figured out a neat way to recreate the SNES MegaDrive magic of 2D distortion effects.

I've made a heat wave effect which looks wonderful on most devices (OpenGL 1.x) . It's something usually used in the underwater areas of games. The screen begins to shake as if there's a good amount of heat or wavy water flowing.

I've made some other interesting effects as well, as well as perfect verlet rope and a pixelation distortion effect.

For the most part now, my use of 3D is going to be limited, 2D can be a crowd-pleaser if used right.

Can anyone here think of any unusual hardware effects for games? Something that may have been used in the past for older games?

There's also a Windows 8 App that will be in the store soon using SGDK2, it's something smaller that I've been working on, unrelated to this. :D My mouse isn't working and the tablet is dead, so it's been on hold for a while.

Wow, I can't wait to see these special effects! :)
For other effects... Hum...  I remember saturation/desaturation effects to make an area seem gloomy or overheated.  I also remember blur effects for drugged or sleepy characters.  That's all I can think of now.
