  1. Hello everyone ! This week I worked a lot on the creation of dialogs box. These will be visible during cutscenes. To avoid writing redundant code, I created a script to create them. It will save me a lot of time. The creation did not cause me too much trouble. It was enough to know which GameMaker functions to use. To get there, I had to use the Draw GUI event of my cutscene controller to be able to draw at the user interface. Here are the small functions that I had to use: draw_set_font This function allows you to choose the font that will be used for the text. draw_set_halign This function is used to define the horizontal alignment that will be used. draw_set_valign This function is used to define the vertical alignment that will be used. draw_sprite This function allows you to draw a sprite on the screen. I use it to draw the dialog box's background as well as the face if there is one. draw_text_ext This function is an improved version of draw_text. It defines when an automatic line break will be made according to the width of the text reached. To finish this update, here's a screenshot of a dialog box test with a face.

  2. Hello everybody ! The last week was dedicated to the creation of NPCs for the first cutscene of the game. Since the first cutscene takes place in the HLB (Humanity’s Last Base), there must be NPC characters to fill the base a bit. So I created 9 differents NPCs with the help of Game Character Hub creation tool. This tool was originally created for the Rpg Maker serie but can be used for other game engine. Just need to export our characters in png. Subsequently, there is some integration work to be done in Game Maker but it is not too complicated. Finally, here are the NPCs that were created this week: Original Link : https://sjs-studio.com/en/blog/2018/02/19/monday-news-5-creation-of-npcs/
  3. Have a good Monday, everyone ! The last week was supposed to be devoted to the creation of the dialogs of the first cutscene but a great misfortune happened to my production hard drive. This one has finished is life in a loud crashing noise. So I had to buy another one and reinstall all my softwares in order to be able to work again on the game. Fortunately, I lost only about 1 hour of work with the help of bitbucket. If you still not work with an external source control, I really recommend it. It can save hours and hours of work in case of hardware problems. Before the crash of my hard drive, I began to draw a little civilian who will walk in the base during the cutscene. I still have some work to do on it to improve it. Here is an animation of it: During the week, I discovered an extraordinary website for planning video game projects. His name is Hacknplan. On this website, you can write your complete documentation. In addition, you can plan your work with the Agile method. Most importantly, there is a free version that can still do a lot for individual developers. I recommend you take a look at it: http://hacknplan.com/ In the next update, there should be more things to show since I changed my hard drive. If you have questions or comments, you can post it here.
  4. Hello everyone ! The last week was devoted to the design of the HLB base. This will be used in the introduction video of the game. In general the design went well. First of all, I had to find a futuristic tileset that made it possible to create a large pretty base. I find this tileset in the DLC of RPG maker. So I buy the tileset: http://store.steampowered.com/app/462083/RPG_Maker_VX_Ace__PVG_Sci_Fi_Tiles Creating a map with GameMaker Studio 2 is very simple. In time to say it, I finished HLB. In all, it took about 3 hours of creation. Thereafter, I began creating small model character to find the right size. After some tests, I concluded that the ideal size is 48 x 72. For now, the character moves on site and all the animations in a loop. In the near future, there will be several characters who will walk around the map to give it a little life. Finally, here is a small screenshot that shows a small part of the base. If you have questions or comments, you can post it here.

    Hi everyone ! Here's my post mortem !

    WoA V : Post mortem

    Already 5 days since the end of the contest. Here is my post mortem. I liked my week in general. I improved my knowledge on monogame while improving my small personal game engine. Things that went weel - The creation of the story was very good. For those who wonder, there are 8 levels of planned in my game. My initial goal was to finish the tutorial and level 1. - Finding music has been a breeze. I had already discovered the artist on Newsground in the past. - The programming in general has been well. I did not have any major problems. Things that went bad - I did not have time to find all the SFXs I wanted. - I've lost a lot of time trying to find a good futuristic tileset and that's probably why I could not create Level 1. To conclude, a big thank you to slicer4ever for organizing this competition. Also, another big thank you, to those who tested my game and who gave me their comments. I will use it to continue my game. I give myself some days of rest but it's certain that I will work on it again. Those who want to follow me will be able to do it here on my gamedev blog or via twitter: https://twitter.com/sjs_studio See ya

    WoA V : Day 6

    Already the sixth day ended. Today I worked a lot to finalize the introduction. Everything is now functional. I still have a little trick to correct and I will be able to work level 1. I hope to be able to finish it in time for the end of the contest. I am confident but you never know what can happen as a problem. I am very pleased with what I have accomplished so far this week. I looked at the other games in the contest and there will be some very good ones in my opinion. Good last day to each of you.
