Sorry, no progress. I just wanted to post about why I haven't posted these last couple of weeks for those following the topic. I don't want anybody thinking it's dead or anything.

The bad news: Basically I've been extra busy with work for about two months now. With this last month mostly working overtime and in a few the weekends. And after such days I tend to be beat and not feeling like doing additional programming.

The good? news: This current business at work *should* get back to normal in a few more weeks. Probably. I've also got a "time for time" arrangement, so when things settle down I will be taking some time off to re-energize and then return to this hobby of mine.

Hello again and welcome to the first update post of 2020.
So, I ended up getting the flu mid december, getting knocked me out for over a week. So I didn't quite meet that last self imposed deadline of jan 1st. Also (like is often the case with me) there is some *slight* scope creep going on XD.

That being said, progress still isn't half bad. The boss area has now been fleshed more (as seen in the attachment). It's all placeholder but the core dungeon feeling should be there. Also, the boss is getting along as well. The attack patterns are about 80% done and the stuff around the boss (like spawning, testing, scenes etc) is about 60% done. What's left now is adding the latest attacks, finishing the scenes etc and a whole lot of playtesting.

For those interested in helping with playtesting: the updated expectation is to release a new demo in about 2 weeks time. In it you can spawn directly in the boss area (with upgraded gear) by naming your character "boss". Just to save you the time of going through an hours long game to get to the new stuff.

Progress report:
Code: [Select]
0.22.06 (29 december 2019)
* Added boss helmet damage and destruction
* Added boss damage visuals
* Added boss custom death sequence

0.22.07 (3 januari 2020)
* Designed/updated B05 dungeon area around introducing latest boss battle (up from 3 to 7 rooms)

0.22.08 (4 januari 2020)
* Fixed issue with Helmasaurus death sequence
* Added new object type to force character into 2nd half of Helmasaurus boss fight
* Fixed some boss area tiling issues
* Added feature to skip directly to the latest boss area by naming a new character “boss”. (You'll also get some upgrades you might have at that point. Expect the game to have issues if you explore beyond the boss area because of this – obviously).
* Fixed camera issue after dying while fighting Helmasaurus in stage 2
* Added dungeon goal to appear after Helmasaurus fight
* Redid room to get mines dungeon treasure

0.22.09 (5 januari 2020)
* Tweaked room collision grids
* Added roars to boss AI

Thanks. That really helps me stay motivation.
I'll aim to have this latest boss fully done and playable by the end of the year.

Sorry about the lack of updates these last 2 weekends. The exact same stuff from the last post is still ongoing on so progress has been really slow. I hope to get back to things by the next weekend again though.

Sorry, I don't have a lot of progress to report currently as I'd like to have seen. Mostly life stuff happen (=work, failed teeth fillings, the dating scene, etc).

Also, I'm trying out some more complex mechanics for the new Helmasaurus boss. Initially I was going to keep it simple to pump out a new boss every month or so, but wouldn't you know it.... It's becoming the most complex boss yet. With a tug of war type of gimmick followed up by a desperation fight. Hopefully I can show it off for testing in a few weeks.

Latest update:
Code: [Select]
0.22.05 (16-24 november 2019)
* Made progress on boss:
  finalised sprites, sprite positioning and retreating

0.22.06 (1 december 2019)
* Extended enemy projectile object functionalities
* Added Helmasaurus fireballs
* Started work on Helmasaurus flamethrower

And here is the latest update. Basically I'm currently trying out several idea's for a new boss. (Check the attachment for a screenshot).

Any thoughts on the boss visuals? I'm trying to give it a bit of a scorpion feel. Also, like the other bosses, the mechanics will only be partly based on the original. Still unsure about the claw's colors though.

D'accord, c'est peut-être à cause de la barrière de la langue.

Il y a un manoir à droite de la zone de départ. Le voyou fait allusion à quoi faire. Fondamentalement: en face de la maison il y a 3 piédestaux. Vous pouvez y placer les anneaux pour déclencher une cinématique.


Okay, maybe it's because of the language barrier.

There is a mansion to the right of the starting area. The thug there hint at what to do. Basically: in front of the mansion there are 3 pedestals. You can place the rings there to trigger a cutscene to continue.

Dans le sud-ouest de l'overworld se trouve le cachot bleu. Si vous avez les bottes, vous pouvez également accéder au donjon du désert en traversant le bac à sable.
In the south west of the overworld is the blue dungeon. If you have the boots you can also access the desert dungeon by crossing the sandpit.

PS: The darkworld is accessable on the west side of the overworld after beating the mansion dungeon (aka dungeon 4)

Vous devez atteindre les donjons d'espace réservé du monde obscur pour les deux objets.
Où en êtes-vous actuellement?

(=You need to reach the dark world placeholder dungeons for both items.
How far along are you currently?)

What would be your cut-off time (=time after this post)?
I'm working at the problem already, but maybe I use a quick workaround in the meantime? (I really look forward to seeing the recordings so its no problem at all XD).

EDIT: Solved the creation coding problem. Let me know when you want the demo for recording (if you're still open to that anyway) and I'll see that as my deadline for the day.
