Progress Update

Hey all, extremely sorry with the couple of missed progress updates; I kept delaying the next one because I wanted to get the breeding menu screenshots in it and I kept being sidetracked by other tasks, I should've posted something. I have a JSFL script I've been working on that automates the process of dividing new animation pieces into skin and primary color layers and unfortunately I've been struggling with it lately. It has some big issues with some concave shapes and I've been trying to hammer it out so that we can get the new animations prepared in time for the update.

Here's the work-in-progress breeding menu, at least; it's obviously missing some bits still but it should be done in time for the update. The two different folders swap which is in front when you click on the one behind. There's still a lot for me to get done before the 15th, but I'm going to see how much I can power out by the end of the day.

  2. That UI looks brilliant. Honestly the old one felt cramped and made breeding specific pairs super annoying. I'm very glad you've spent a lot of time on the breeding menu. I feel like my patronage is being used well and will continue to support this team.

  4. The old adage "It was worth the wait" looks like it fits here. I can't wait to beat it up ;-) Of course it wont stop any of the trolls from mindlessly complaining. I think your next game should be "troll hunting"

    1. Nah, I think his game should be "How To Milk Feebleminded Cretins Out Of Their Money While Apologizing Profusely And Painting Every Other Voice As Trolling: The Game"*. It will only take three years to make, with a monthly budged of meager 50k USD. Gib mony; goty every year.

      *I'll give you that I'm not good with titles. Perhaps something more catchy is in order, such as Milking Season?

  5. As long as I can continue playing this on my Asus T100 tablet using the touchscreen with the new hi, then it's fine by me! ^_^

    Say will there be a favorite mister or auto breed option? I think it would be nice to have a fast and easy way to select certain monsters incase you have a lot in a list.

    Also the ability to sell monsters as soon as they're born would be nice.

    Can't wait for the update! :D

  6. "There's still a lot for me to get done before the 15th..."
    why does this sentence cause a sense of doubt about the the next release date?

    1. Because that's exactly why H-bomb said it, instead of just posting a 'lol it's not done yet' post on the 15th.

      Delete
    2. In a worst case scenario, tomorrow I can at least put up as much of the game as is working currently. There may be many crucial elements that won't be working yet, so you'll be able to poke around with it, see the animations, play with the menus, etc, but there won't be much in the way of gameplay possible.

      I'm not sure how much I'll be able to complete by tomorrow yet; it really depends on how difficult it will be to implement the remaining systems.

    3. If it's not really playable yet I guess there's no point in reminding you to clean out and fix the bug report thread. But please do it anyway after you post the update.

      Delete
    4. It's on my to-do list, which is so long it can be seen from outer space right now :P.

      Delete
    5. I dislike this kind of explanation. You basically have to read between the lines to understand that what H-Bomb planned wont be finished.
      Yes it is not nice that we have to wait longer but it is even worse to get our hopes up. Just give it to us straight.
      Just say "This and that is finished, this and that won't be and these here have a chance of getting in in the update which means it is/isn't completely playable yet.)
      Hard world but we are all grown ups (theoretically) and should be able to understand that a work in progress is still a work in progress even when it takes more time than at first expected.

  7. After 2 years this guy can´t get his game in working condition. "Sorry for the delay", "sorry for this", "sorry for that", etc. and people is still paying him 24.000$ per month. Stupid brainless guys.

    1. I'm willing to bet you're the same idiot who posts this shit on every one of these updates. Unless you're the financial manager of everyone putting money towards this, there's no point in worrying about it. I'd rather see 24K a month go to this game then get wasted on some dumb shit like whatever EA and Ubisoft are shitting out these days.

      Where were you when Minecraft was in development and Notch was cranking out a whopping one update every two months? That game had far more money invested into it yet people kept licking Notch's asshole every time he took a vacation during development time.

      By the way, you might want to learn how to format currencies before you accuse anyone else of being stupid, the dollar sign comes BEFORE the amount. Fuck, why am I even bothering to respond to this? You're clearly just some dumb troll with nothing better to do than piss and moan about a game that you probably aren't even putting money towards while trying to discourage its author. Get bent.

    2. Oooh, I can assure, he's not the only one. I occasionally like to laugh from the sidelines as well. From my perspective this whole clique is like a premium event on Special Olympics. Get some beer, chips and shift through the comments - the amount of brain-dead sheep cultism is better entertainment than the game itself.

      Pray tell, what's exactly the difference between "wasting" money on EA/Ubi etc. and this?
      Shoddy product? Checked.
      Shoddy developer? Checked.
      Shoddy releases, support and consumer relations? Checked, checked aaand checked.
      But since one is indie and second is a big company that somehow justifies it? You've gotta be kidding me. Leave it to the furries to be completely docile and oblivious.

      Delete
    3. It's one coder promising too much and getting the job extremely staggered vs. Large companies with teams of coders, designers, and creative directors; that promises too much, fails to deliver, denies fault when criticism hits, tries to make up without admitting fault, etc.

      People are justifying this because no idiot is going to expect a tiny team consisting of a few guys to professionally deliver a perfect, top-notch, and high quality animal fucking simulator; the same can't be said for giant publishers and developers with large teams.

      You are correct, however, in an objective and no-excuse perspective.

    4. Leave it to the furries to be completely docile and oblivious?

      So how do you know they're a furry?

    5. What's a furry?

    7. Frankly knowing how much he earns month to month from patrons is more than what anyone should be entitled to. Guess what, YOU aren't paying him $24k a month. if you were it'd be a different story. H-bomb GETS $24k off of consumer trust, communication and delivery of content. I'm sorry that your mommy spoiled you by paying for your prostitutes but the expectation of satisfaction from someone elses money is fucking childish.

  9. H-Bomb, when you upload the new version here, if you wouldn't mind could you remove the link using that old post where Build 5.3 currently is? It has all these messages at the bottom from 2013 that aren't relevant anymore. I figure a new build = new post for everyone to comment on giving guidance and advice and such. In a month, anyway.

  10. H-Bomb, if it isn't a herculean task, could you add something like this: http://i.imgur.com/j247n63.png

    What do you think?

  14. I can't wait for the new version either, mostly because the dialogue bug has popped up in my current saved game and now EVERY dialogue locks up the game. It's basically unplayable. I hope the new version fixes at least part of this problem.

  17. After you crank this one out, you need to start hiring. A second dedicated coder will give an exceptional leap in problem-solving, not to mention someone to help hammer out your process.

    1. I don't know about that. After he re-written everything, the only thing left to do should be animation and some tweakling here and there.

  18. If the 15th deadline set up by himself is missed I would only have to believe that he is delaying as much as possible so he can just get another fat $24,000.

    1. this actually isn't big surprise
      imba in few hours he will come up with another delay/I'm sorry post and make deadline of deadline of the missed deadline.

    2. Well, I bet he wasn't sleeping 3 nights to get the content delivered to us...

      Haha, what a joke <_<

      Delete
  19. Honestly if it increases your productivity I would much rather prefer that you post every other day

    ReplyDelete
  20. hopefully H-bomb reads this. whether or not he makes the deadline, i seriously hope he takes a few days OFF direct progress for the game to work on getting the team together to assist him. two people is not enough to do this, and hes likely going to burn himself out trying to do it. the more stress you got on this crap, the more mistakes you make. the more mistakes, the longer it takes.

    as i posted before, i think the 4th hire should be another coder to assist with the load. i mean if nothing else he could just set them to debugging the crap and do the setup work himself.

  21. You need 2 side bars like in total commander or windows explorer that would make the game much smoother. Now you need to search for the one u want to breed, than you need to search for the other and if you forgot the name or misclick u need to start over.

  22. already 16th November in Austrlia
    4 PM in central Europe (15th November)

    so here we go again? delays and broken deadlines again? white knights prepare your shiny cum covered shields and your fat horses to defend H-Bomb

    1. Well, my shield *IS* very shiny when I wipe off the jizz you just trolled all over it. But don't you make fun of my horse! He has gland issues.

      Also, H-Bomb said he'd power it out and post it by the end of the day. Wipe off the cum you fapped into your own eyes and fucking read English.

    1. well if he didn't get money each month for making that game then there wouldn't be "bagging" or the hate posts. If he wants to profit then he also needs to give new stuff for people who support him/are his patrons. Two and half month of nothing atm, another deadline missed: there are no words on shit that's happening with this project

      Delete
    2. he remaking the game from scratch and learning new programs to help him to get stuff dune faster and the money we give him help pay for new stuff like animation or he code take a 3 year tafe courses and learn how to do it himself and new program to make game cost money ongoing there are free game maker but he wont's a good hi-end game and that take time money so if you wont to kill time and show him up make a game you can use game maker studio it free and when youer game is made see if it as good as this one
