And here is another weekly progress report. I'll be take a break next weekend to rechange a little, but slowly but surely the v0.18 release is coming closer. Personally I'm getting excited about almost finishing the conversion to Studio (despite Studio 2 having just been announced. Go figure). What I estimated at 2 months actually ended up taking 2,5 years. Granted, this is also due to me wanting to introduce 60 fps and clean up the coding, but still. Just a little while longer and then I'll be able to fully focus on new stuff again. New enemies, bosses, locations, mechanics. Can't wait.

Progress made:
Code: [Select]
0.17.192 Studio (18 november 2016)
* Fixed shadows for flying enemies in room with bridges
* Converted bridge collision mechanics
* Fixed shield depths when walking down straight stairs
* Converted wall lights
* Lights produced by wall lights now animated

0.17.193 Studio (20 november 2016)
* Animate lights from torches and other sources
* Lights produced by small/tall/large torches now animated
* Converted all remaining enemy scripting


CHARACTER ACTIONS LEFT TO DO:
- Grabbing/pulling
- Throw item
- Pick up containers

REMAINING (CONVERSION) BEFORE DEMO 18.0 [12]->[9]:
- Convert final sprites
- Convert item menu
- Convert map menu
- Convert enemy remaining movment + misc scripting
- Convert character movement scripts
- Convert character misc scripting
- Convert containers
- Convert hitswitches
- Convert torches / various light sources
- Convert misc scripting

- Add in a small new dungeon to display the new enemies in demo 18.0

Which version of GM Studio are you using? If it is 1.4 it should not take too much time to make it work in GM Studio 2.

I'm on Studio 1.4 right now. I hear they might have some kinda auto code conversion setup even, but I'll have to see how reliable that'll be for a project as big as mine.

The new room editor in Studio 2 looks very cool by the way. The amount of time those new brushes will save me on tiling is worth the money alone I think. And the inheritance setup seems perfect for a light/dark world mechanic XD

Is anybody on the forum part of the beta? If so, can sprites be manipulated layer by layer with the new code?

And here is this weekend's update. The bombs should now be fully finish. And I must say that they feel fun! They're a little different from the original, but also enjoyable enough that I ended up just throwing them around for no reason during testing, so I'm happy. Also, the complexity surrounding containers has been survived. XD Only a few more tricky hurdles left and then I can officially call the old demo restored. Considering the progress being made I'll aim for a release on 1-1-2017.

* Can now pick up and walk with bombs (that can blow up)
* Tweaked bomb spawning placement
* Converted containers
* Converted more character draw events
* Converted character action: throwing
* Converted character action: picking up
* Added additional bomb functionality

0.17.197 Studio (11 december 2016)
* Tweaked animation frozen/stone enemies being picked up
* Fixed various found issues
* Add new bomb specific damage class
* Expanded container collision scripting for bombs
* Added a little hop to thrown bombs
* Both frozen buzzblobs and cukemen coming back to live with a hammer hit
* Converted terrain visuals as part the character visuals

CONVERTED / NEW ITEMS:
- Gloves
- Bombs (new in V18.0)

CHARACTER ACTIONS LEFT TO DO:

I see you're bringing back old items as well as adding new ones. Will there be new types of NPCs as well?

I'm not entirely sure what you mean when you say types, but I do also have various unique NPC's in mind.

And here is last week's progress. It's going to be close but the new demo should be possible before the end of the year still (if I don't find any more glitches to fix). Check out the new poll if you want to weigh in on what my focus should be for januari / februari. Also, if been tinkering with Studio 2. It's still pretty buggy, but the potential is excellent.

* Converted (and combined) hitswitches

0.17.200 Studio (27 december 2016)

* Tiled small new area for placing the latest enemies

0.17.201 Studio (28 december 2016)
* Fixed glitch item menu
* Masked + populated small cave for displaying new enemies
* Converted remaining character sprites

A massive amount of bug fixes


What's next?
The first priority is to fix whatever bugs or issues you guy may find in the current demo. So feel free to report whatever things you might notice while playing, no matter how small.

After that I plan to spend januari just adding whatever I feel like. After that (in februari) I'll go back to a more directed schedule. Check the poll above to give your opinion on what that schedule should focus on.
