Project: 13 RONIN

13 RONIN - DevLog #11 - 2nd Public Build Released




Hello friends!

It’s been a while since I posted any news regarding 13 Ronin. A new challenging project at my day job and a renovation of my apartment have been stealing both time and energy, slowing down the development speed of 13 Ronin to almost no speed at all. But now, I’ve finally managed to reach the 2nd milestone, and release a new dev build of the game.


(I do apologize for the crappy GIF, the game doesn't look this bad in reality)

Pretty much all of what I had planned for the milestone is included, a few things have been discarded, but others have been added. Largest additions from the last build are blood splashes, different death animations and a few more moves, but I’ve also made some work under the hood to improve the computer “AI”. There is still a lot to wish for regarding the “AI”, but I’ve made the behavior easier to improve upon, so future versions of the game will hopefully contain opponents both challenging and fun to fight.

For anyone who like to try the build (this release is Windows only):

  1. Click this link to go to my DropBox-account
  2. Download file 13Ronin, 2st Public Build.zip
  3. When download is finished extract the zip-folder’
  4. Open folder.
  5. Double-click ReadMe.md to read instructions on how to play.
  6. Double-click 13Ronin.exe to start game. 
  7. Press ‘1’ to start game. Press ‘ESC’ to return to start screen, and then press ‘ESC’ again to exit game.

Please understand that this is not a finished game, it’s not even a demo, it’s work in progress and will be largely modified and extended before being a completed game. Still interested? Please try it out and give me some valuable feedback.

Happy coding!

      Hello, I'm currently searching for additional talented and passionate members for our team that's creating a small horror game.
      About the game: The game would be a small sci-fi/post-apocalyptic survival horror 3D game with FPS (First person shooter) mechanics and an original setting and story based in a book (which I'm writing) scene, where a group of prisoners are left behind in an abandoned underground facility. It would play similar to Dead Space combined with Penumbra and SCP: Secret Laboratory, with the option of playing solo or multiplayer.
      Engine that'd be used to create the game: Unity
      About me: I'm a music composer with more than 4 years of experience and I'm fairly new in this game development world, and I'm currently leading the team that'd be creating this beautiful and horrifying game. I decided that making the book which I'm writing into a game would be really cool, and I got more motivated about doing so some time ago when I got a bunch of expensive Unity assets for a very low price. However, I researched about how to do things right in game development so I reduced the scope of it as much as I could so that's why this game is really based in a scene of the book and not the entire thing. Also I'm currently learning how to use Unity and learning how to program in C#.
      Our team right now consists of: Me (Game Designer, Creator, Music Composer, Writer), 2 3D Modelers, 5 Game Programmers, 1 Sound Effect Designer, 1 3D Animator and 2 2D Artists.
      Who am I looking for: We are looking for a talented and passionated 3D Environment Artist that's experienced in the modeling of closed environments and is familiar with the horror and sci-fi genre.
      Right now the game is in mid development and you can see more information about it and follow our progress in our game jolt page here: https://gamejolt.com/games/devilspunishment/391190 . We expect to finish some sort of prototype in 3 months from now.
      This is a contract rev-share position
      If you are interested in joining, contributing or have questions about the project then let's talk. You can message me in Discord: world_creator#9524

      INT is a 3D Sci-fi RPG with a strong emphasis on story, role playing, and innovative RPG features such as randomized companions. The focus is on the journey through a war-torn world with fast-paced combat against hordes of enemies. The player must accomplish quests like a traditional RPG, complete objectives, and meet lively crew members who will aid in the player's survival. Throughout the game you can side and complete missions through criminal cartels, and the two major combatants, the UCE and ACP, of the Interstellar Civil War.
      Please note that all of our current positions are remote work. You will not be required to travel.

      We are unable to offer wages or per-item payments at this time. However revenue-sharing from crowd-funding is offered to team members who contribute 15-20 hours per week to company projects, as well as maintain constant communication and adhere to deadlines. Your understanding is dearly appreciated.
      TO APPLY
      Please send your Cover Letter, CV, Portfolio (if applicable), and other relevant documents/information to this email: JohnHR@int-game.net
      Thank you for your time! Please feel free to contact me via the email provided should you have any questions or are interested to apply for this position. We look forward to hearing from you!

      I just finished writing a parser for TMX data (Tiled maps), and the way Tiled handles rotated tiles is by using three bit flags for flipping an image horizontally, vertically, and diagonally, to allow for rotation. Unless I'm wrong, flipping an image "diagonally" is just rotating 90 degrees CCW (counter-clockwise) and then flipping horizontally.
      So I tried to implement this when I create the sub-image of the tileset for each tile:
      public Image getImage(Image tileset, int w, int h) {     if(tid == 0) return null;     int nh = tileset.getWidth() / w; // Number of tiles in this tileset horizontally.     // Offsets to be multiplied by tile width and height to get origin point of tile.     int ox = ((tid - 1) % nh); // Subtract 1 because the TID numbers are 1-indexed (why use 0 to indicate nothing? why not -1? stupid Tiled...)     int oy = ((tid - 1) / nh);     Image sub = tileset.getSubImage((ox * w), (oy * h), w, h);     // If any of the flip bits are set, flip the image.     if(fh || fv) sub = sub.getFlippedCopy(fh, fv);     if(fd) {         // To flip diagonally, rotate counter-clockwise, then flip it horizontally.         sub.setRotation(-90);         sub = sub.getFlippedCopy(true, false);     }     return sub; } Specifically, the area where I set the rotation of the sub-image is what's causing my problem. Despite setting the rotation, the image is not rotated on the canvas. Doing a little digging into the library (what little information there is), it seems that the Image class' internal rotate methods don't actually do anything to the image, and most rotation is done using the Graphics context's rotate methods, which rotate the entire context and then draw the image.
      The only problem with that is that if I rotate my graphics context, which is the map I'm constructing using these tiles, then the coordinates I give to draw the tile are no longer correct because of the rotated context, so my tiles come out all over the place.
      What would be my solution here for rotating the images? Is there a transformation I can do to the coordinates once the graphics context is rotated so they draw in the correct position? I don't know anything about linear algebra, so I'm not sure what to do from here.
