About 2 stream,workin on 1 of many projects #supportsmallstreamers #gamedev #gamemakerstudio #indiedev

At 7.30pm EST I'll start my stream of my development side/coding, for a couple of hours

Twitch Streaming Page – https://www.twitch.tv/pjgdevelopments

I am trying to move along with 'Highrise Escape', and I have a few bugs to iron out and a few new things to implement, slow and steady wins the race. 🙂

09/23/2017 – Tonight I'm still continuing with my changes, bug fixes, removing code not needed, changing graphics, working out why when I'm marking a room unusable, it's still being used (although I think I know why, but it will take up most of the stream) 🙂

Feel free to come along and watch for a little while, give me your input, tell your friends.

For now, I'm starting small, 2 days a week, 2 hours in those days, full time life trumps streaming, but I'm trying.

How’s my game coming along? #indiedev #gamedev #gamemakerstudio

So, I’ve been streaming of late, but I’ve realized that I’ve not actually been updating my site or showing/saying what I’ve been doing, apart from notifying when I’m going online.

That is a little boring for you, so I figured I’d post an update (well, you can blame @JeffDev, as he wanted to see what I’m up to, so it’s all his fault [Thanks Jeff])

So, I’ve moved my project over from Gamemaker Studio 1.4 over to the new version of Gamemaker Studio 2, they have added a lot of new commands and got rid of a lot of commands, this means my project has what’s called ‘Comparability Scripts’ which makes my old code work on the new system. I don’t want that, so recently all I’ve been doing is going through my code and removing the old code and replacing it with new code, hence hopefully not using ‘compatibility scripts’ and hence not having any problems.

The game itself hasn’t really changed, just changing stuff under the hood, I’ve made a new friend who has stated he produce some graphics for it, so I’ve replaced my rooms with the brighter colour scheme that he provided. I also had to change the tile system (as it went from 1.4 to 2), I managed to get that fixed, and I also changed my logic, so a level can be generated, but now instead of it being a fixed size, it can be any size (and I mean, any size, so huge ones take a while to generate) but it works. Then I remove the rooms the player cannot get too, then I add the baddies, the doors, the weapons, keys, and go..

I really don’t know which way this game will go, it’s evolving slowly, as a full time life always gets in the way, but please follow this site to see updates, follow me on twitter, come watch me on my short streams I do, all the links can be found around my website.

So, this little short animated gif shows me running the game, then re-generating the levels, you will see they would be fairly big for the player to get around, but I’m viewing them as a whole, so you can see them.

More updates to come, enjoy the rest of your weekend. 🙂

09/22/2017 – So, I decided, rather than start all over again, I'd give the version I had running a chance with GMS2, so for the next few streams, I'll be bug finding, tweaking and removing compatibility scripts and replacing them with the GMS2 version of the code. While this may seem boring to some, it's something I'm going to have to do. I plan on making it so I can decided the level size from the rooms across and down, rather than the pixels in the room. I have tons to do, so like I said, the next good few streams will be me doing that. 🙂

09/15/2017 – So, I was working on my project, bearing in mind I imported it from 1.4 over to 2, and I found lots of things were using 'compatibility scripts', so I decided, rather than bandaid my code (and I was going to move over to 2 anyways) I might as well start fresh, I have lots of the code that doesn't use it, so I'll be copy and pasting that over, but a few fundamentals have changed. Views have gone to Camera, and the tile system has changed, so I'm going to be learning both of those as I go along. I also decided that, as my Level drawing script wasn't the best, now I'm a little more confident with GMS/GML I'd write that again, starting off using instances to make a 'small level' until it works, and then expand it to my 12 by 12 rooms, etc.

09/09/2017 – Tonight I’ll be working more on my turret system and having them positioned in the right places based on the room that is generated, although, with the direction this might end up going (based on ideas from the guy behind the graphics) I might end up not using turrets, or changing the graphics to be something else [more to come]

Feel free to come along and watch for a little while, give me your input, tell your friends.

When I have enough followers, I’m going to start some giveaways (unused Steam keys from humble bundles) and I have a bot that allows some commands and game-play.
