Black-Rook's Journal > Classic RPG #1 - Task 10 (Graphic Revamp)

Posted on 06 January 2013 - 10:34 PM

Thankfully all the EXP and STATS are completed. Once you level up you have the option of selecting which stat to improve by hitting the appropriate shortcut key. I was considering having mouse control, but sadly it would throw the rest of the game off as there is only keyboard input. You can also reset your stats if you wish to make changes before confirm...

Black-Rook's Journal > Classic RPG #1 - Task 8 - Update 2 (Towns/Castles Complete)

Posted on 17 December 2012 - 12:15 AM

It's been so long since my last entry. Sadly with work and other things I've had little to no time lately. The good news is that all towns/castles are now programmed and fully working with menus!

There is not much to show currently, however in the next task there will be a video of combat, leveling up, applying stats, and shopping in town. I...

Posted on 04 November 2012 - 10:01 PM

Task 7 is now complete! Sorry for the long delay, I was way too busy to even touch code since my last entry. I also worked out a few other issues with the inventory system as I found a way to duplicate items.

The HUD is very basic as seen below in the three...

Black-Rook's Journal > Classic RPG #1 - Task 6 - Update 1 (Sword Sprites)

Posted on 13 October 2012 - 03:03 AM

Hello everyone!

I've tried to update the swords to make it more clear the Bronze, Iron, and Steel are indeed different. The game will show a text description either way.

Below you will see the new swords on top, and previous ones below.

Now, to describe how...

It's now time to set the goals for Task 6!!! I'm looking to have all weapons and armor types equip able, along with items useable through the inventory screen. The loot system will be fully functional as well.

I've done a few "simple" sprites for the following items:

Black-Rook's Journal > No More Guild Wars 2 - Back to Programming!

Posted on 17 September 2012 - 07:16 AM

I've been slacking a bit on the project because of Guild Wars 2! I've played every class other than Guardian and I'm not enjoying the game as much as I hoped to! I normally play the thief for PVP and usually rank in the top 3 on my side. World vs World was alright with the thief and if you wire people towards you that are low on HP...

Black-Rook's Journal > Guild Wars 2 - Cannot Wait!

Posted on 09 August 2012 - 09:17 PM

I'm really looking forward to Guild Wars 2! I did play Guild Wars 1 on release and played through several times, however I never really enjoyed Eye of the North as much. I've never pre-ordered a game or anything for that matter in my entire life, yet I found myself pre-ordering Guild Wars 2 so I could get the three day head start, and the...
