Humans are decidedly inferior to monster girls and less fun to draw

Besides, monster girls are imbedded in Veeky Forums's DNA. I only ever came here back in 2005 because I heard it was the best place to find Monster Girl porn. /v/voted MGQ as it's game of the year one year. /v/, /tg/ and /d/ are obsessed with them, and as of the past couple of years so is /a/ (and by extension, /e/ and /h/).

How is a normal human lady supposed to beat a magical sex spider lady or whatever? It can't be done. She comes with built in bondage gear.

You're right, actually. And that's a miracle of the universe that few men understand; you are clearly an enlightened individual. But that's the only arena in which they can compete. A human woman trying to be buxom and sexy will always lose to a plant girl who's buxom and sexy and also filling the air with irresistible pheromones in order to steal your semen. It's just science.

She resembles a human now!
One leg is shorten than the other though, and the feet positioning doesn't make much sense.

The face shows that the camera is directly level with the target.
The shoulders/torse area show that the camera is slightly elevated from the target.
The legs show that the camera is much higher than the target.

Fix your perspective and it'll look fine user.

progress! a basic walk

also implemented "soft billboarding" because I never want the player to be able to look at the side of the sprite straight on (it would be thin like a sheet of paper and break the illusion)

...it became evident that a custom scripting language could more optimally make use of Godot’s particular architecture:

Godot embeds scripts in nodes. Most languages are not designed with this in mind.
Godot uses several built-in data types for 2D and 3D math. Script languages do not provide this, and binding them is inefficient.
Godot uses threads heavily for lifting and initializing data from the net or disk. Script interpreters for common languages are not friendly to this.
Godot already has a memory management model for resources, most script languages provide their own, which results in duplicate effort and bugs.
Binding code is always messy and results in several failure points, unexpected bugs and generally low maintainability.

The result of these considerations is GDScript. The language and interpreter for GDScript ended up being smaller than the binding code itself for Lua and Squirrel, while having equal functionality. With time, having a built-in language has proven to be a huge advantage.

visual scripting
Literally why.

It doesn't make programming any easier for artists (Which shouldn't be programming anyway).
And actual programmers hate it.

The arguments that it's easier to follow your program flow is bullshit as well.
Text programming: Top -> bottom
Visual scripting: Spaghetti going literally everywhere.

Blue crosshair is necessary for aiming bullets, orange crosshair is necessary for launching the ball.

I'm not an artist, but maybe you could try more interesting posts? I angled the shoulders and hips so they move in a counteractive / and \ motion, as explained in pic related.

The torso-to-hips ratio also bothered me somehow, and it's probably the hips: Maybe you could widen them a bit more?

Again, though, I'm not an artist: I'm not sure how good this feedback is, but I wanted to give my own input anyway.

And, of course, I forgot to add the pic. Here you go.

There's also Donkey Kong Country 1/2/3 that took 3d rendered models and pixellated them into pixel art. (I'm willing to bet the godawful ones you see in the DKC show use similar software for their models, but show how truly cheesey they look because 90s technology probably looked better rendered as pixel art.

Oh, and there's the Lamulana Remake, which pixellated some 3d-rendered models, too: They had a blogpost on it somewhere during development, on the Lamulana Remake blog site. (JP post, maybe? I can't remember)

Windows 7 64bit, but despite not wanting to lose the opportunity to post the joke, I'm pretty sure that's a problem on my end.

A few weeks ago mpc froze on me while watching a video and never, ever worked again, not after reinstalling or anything. I think it left some corrupt dll or something in my system because other stuff started to freeze too after that, for example the screensaver settings window I can't use anymore, I have to enable/disable it through regedit whenever I want to.

Godot just probably changed the way it does the UI and started using whatever it is that's fucked on my pc. Time to reinstall windows I guess.

Nobody's saying to stop using objects or even classes (although objects are, IMO, better without classes). It's the "orientation" part that's the problem. It implies you should use objects for everything even if there's a better solution.

An object in Javascript is pretty much just a key:value pair structure, like a dictionary or associative array in other languages. Except it has some special properties like the prototype, which enables the object to inherit properties from parent objects. So if you look for myObject.foo and myObject doesn't have it, it'll go to the prototype and go back to its parent to look for that property. This means that any change to a parent object at runtime can be propagated to its children through the prototype chain.

Prototypal inheritance is very flexible, much nicer than classes imo.

I started programming in Flash with Actionscript in 2003 or so, which is very similar to Javascript, so Javascript is comfy for me. Plus its a very powerful multi-paradigm language if you actually take the time to learn and understand it... and use a highly opinionated linter to stop yourself from writting really shitty code that other languages would rightfully throw exceptions for.

Added wolves. They will start to chase you when you get in a given range. You can only get rid of them if you out run them. With that said, I've removed regeneration, so the energy refilling flower has more value. Still no sniffing. Bushes are these magical safe havens for now.

I think I won't add more enemies for now, and rather try to polish what I have and plan a basic level.

setting delegates within a loop I can't use the iterator but have to define a whole new integer which uses the iterators value to add a fucking listener or else it uses the last parameter for every single listener I added in the loop.

I'm still pretty new to 3D modeling.

Anyway, it just needs some little finishing touches to add the trigger and make it less blocky, then I can finally move on to texturing.

Is 314 polygons for a gun model considered low poly? I've been thinking how to cut down the poly count.

Also, I'm not entirely sure how I can efficiently smoothen it just at the edges. Would any user here know a good, simple way to do it?

Well, there's technically a difference between dynamically-typed and untyped. Dynamic types can at least prevent bad behaviour at runtime (through a panic, i.e. dynamic type checks are just assertions), whereas, with no types at all, you don't get any of that.

C# structs are allocated on the stack, as was stated. Being value-types instead of reference-types, they are passed around by value between methods.
Note that structs in C# should be immutable and 16 bytes in size to be handled efficiently.
Just use classes.

Your CPU tries to predict which path it's going to take and starts running stuff on that path. If the if statement then goes the other way it has to flush everything out and start over on the other path. That is why it can be relatively slow. It also varies depending on CPU. On the SPUs in the PS3 branches were so slow it was usually better to just do both things and choose the result at the end using some arithmetic function instead.

But this is the kind of thing 99.99% of programmers never have to care about. If you've reached a point where branch misprediction is a problem you're good enough to solve it.

askme
askme

Well, not a value type, but an object of value type.

Saying every struct needs to be less than 16 bytes in size to be efficient is silly because it presumes that the only thing that matters is how much has to be copied when passing arguments.

No, a value type.
Structs inherit from System.ValueType (which, in turn, inherits from System.Object)
It's precisely due to copying behavior that structs are recommended to be 16 bytes or less. They CAN be larger but it's not efficient and you might as well just use classes.

Making the computer to compute stuff and print strings is one thing but I still can't figure out how to make it where it generates a description of the monster so you can examine it and get information.

Presumably you'd have the monster represented as some kind of object, and that object would have attributes like health, armour, attack, damage type, color etc.

So your automatic computing machione takes this monster object, and it has a lookup table (dictionary/array/database/whatever) that associates each attribute inside the monster object with a pre-made mad-libs style sentence, where the key words in the sentences are variables determined by the monster object attributes.

So you'd load a monster into your game
dragon = new Monster();
dragon.name = "Fred the Dragon"
dragon.attack = 80;
dragon.armor = 50;
dragon.damage = "fire";
dragon.color = "red"

Then you'd feed the dragon into your description maker and the description maker would look at the dragon's attributes, find the attributes inside, and iterate over each one, looking up the sentences that correspond to those attributes. So it finds the name, and goes and finds the sentence
"This is a monster called %s."
where %s becomes dragon.name.
Then it finds attack... and it could have another algorithm that looks at attack, and decides how powerful that attack rating is, so it could be "weak", "quite powerful" or "overwhealmingly powerful". You could factor in the player's abilities to determine what this should be. Then you'd insert that string into the sentence
"The monster is %s."
where %s becomes the result of the algorithm where the computer decides how badly this monster will dumpster the player.

So you're still computing stuff and printing strings, but then you're sticking them all together into a big string which forms a description. The description might be a bit clunky and not read very well,but that's to be expected.

I set it up so it would shift up and down like that on purpose, for testing. I do still need to see how I can soften the rubberbanding that happens when its 'unlocked', but that sort of rubberbanding does happen to an extent in games like Metal Slug.

Thanks, user.

You don't need to really know anything about trigonometry, vectors, quaternions, or matrices to use them in games. The way they're used in high-level libraries and engines is very intuitive, and references to addition, multiplication, conjugate, etc. are just mathematical names because nobody bothered to call them something more domain-specific.

Not the original guy that offered you help (would never help you with the way you act), but here's some advice since you've clearly never worked with sound before.

Some engines have restrictions with what format you can import. Others have restrictions with a specific bitrate needed. Some engines handle looping from one single file and others need 2 - 3 files in order to loop well (either ogg or wav depending on the engine used).

So next time somebody asks for more information, how about you not be a giant cunt to them? Otherwise you can make your fucking music and sounds yourself.

An object is something with fields and methods (and usually some encapsulated internals) and is basically a generalization of an abstract data type. Classes are a way of creating objects, but they're not the only way. Lots of scripting languages have objects, but no classes.

However, since you said that you make "real games" and not "walking simulators" (which are actually games according to the actual definition), I figured that we're not going by the official definition and instead we're going by Googum's arbitrary edition of what HE thinks games are!

Based.

It's just an object. It may have a type, which details the accessible fields and methods, but not necessarily a class.

IMO, classes are just boilerplate that obscures what really happens when you work with objects. You can do encapsulation, subtype polymorphism, and even inheritance without classes. The only time it is useful for an object to have class is if you're using reflection, and you shouldn't use reflection.

Burnblaze

Probably because it looks smooth. My hypothesis is that mixels are usually introduced (or not eliminated) because they make the game look smoother, although they are not the only way.

It's really about getting rid of rounded, sub-pixel movement. This game doesn't have sub-pixel movement in the first place, so it doesn't need mixels to take away the rounding.

The same applies to rotation. Algorithmic sprite rotation is usually pretty bad, so there are alternatives. You can rotate by hand, only touch up the algorithmic rotation, use an art style where algorithmic rotation looks okay...or just say fuck it and go with rixels.

The /weg/ board over at /aco/ said it'd be a good idea to post this over here, so I figured I'd give it a shot.

Quick introduction of myself; I develop hentai games with small teams. My job in each game is as the writer/game designer/PR, and usually level design as well. Currently working on three games, each with successful Patreons.
The most well known of the games I'm working on, Future Fragments, you can find by searching the name + "Patreon" (I'd link it but no links to patreons are allowed, AFAIK).

The reason I'm posting here though is because I'm currently trying to find programmers who are skilled in developing in GameMaker, C++, and HTML5, as we want to port a demo of Future Fragments into HTML5 to upload to Newgrounds, using the HTML5 module with GameMaker as well as some extra legwork. The reason you'd need to know C++ is because the demo is essentially using GameMaker as a shell, with most of the code being C++ within that shell.

You would be paid a total of $2,500 once the job was done (estimated time to do this would probably be 30-40 days) along with a small bonus if the increase in funds to our Patreon was significant enough that we could afford to do so (probably another $500 or so). We'd also consider you for other game projects as well where you'd be able to get monthly income off of programming those as well, if you wanted.

The full details of why we need to put this demo out, as well as more details on the game, so on (plus the demo you'd be converting at the top of my Tumblr's info) are all at hentaiwriter.tumblr.com/post/148708062829/were-outsourcing-the-html5-demo-to-save-time-and

Hey guys don't use OOP because I'm not smart enough to plan ahead and that's its only drawback!
That's a weird argument.
Well planning ahead takes time, so you should use something else instead, i know the best people in the industry think OOP is the best way, but I think they got it all wrong!
Here look, you see if you want to switch this part in the code out, it cascades upwards making you having to redo a ton
Well why did you write it like that then? Here look at my code, its modularized specifically to avoid this.
But didn't that take time?
No, its something you learn as a good programmer, it comes natural for the most of us.
W-w-well here in this specific example its impossible to modularize!
Good thing every good IDE has built in refactoring tools.
Waah? Inbuilt refactoring tools?...
Yeah, every big IDE has tools where you in two three clicks can separate parts of classes, reparent them etc, all automaticly! Isn't that cool?
S-s-sure but ECS has this by default so to speak!
Except that OOP also has a logical structure, think of a mind palace, does it have to be a house? Of course not, it just helps mentally.

If you only know C++, there's another job we've got for a backup programmer to take care of coding the game when our main programmer is otherwise incapacitated (they live in a ghetto part of Poland, have frequent internet etc. problems).

As I'm not the programmer, I don't know, so I'll ask them and then get back to you on that.

1. It makes sense
Splitting your code into smaller self-contained chunks is something that makes sense even for someone who just started programming

2. You will feel better about yourself
After getting used to the whole classes-object-thing people will believe that they have understood OOP and are now CS-experts.

3. Employers like it
You spend endless hours in a dimly lit cubicle, coding an important app while upholding all principles of OOP? Well good job, now they can fire you whenever they want and replace you with some college drop-out who'll work for 1/10th of your salary( or at least that's what they believe)

Indeed. But in most OOP languages you have the choice of how much you want to have OOP and how much you want to use other paradigms. If what you are trying to argue is "Overusing OOP is bad" then of course you're right, EVERYONE ALREADY KNOWS THIS. And it is not an inherit flaw with OOP.

Any other arguments or something wrong with what I said above?

well then, I guess I won't be doing that

Not being a programmer, I might fuck up the description here, but from what I understand, our programmer used GameMaker initially to take care of some of the stuff it does well (what this might be, I've no idea).

Everything else he replaced with C++ scripts, bit by bit, until GM was basically just doing some legwork with a few elements of the game here and there, and the rest of it was all C++.
At this point, there's two copies of the game;
- The current version, which is entirely C++ with no traces of GameMaker left, which is what we're moving forward with, but converting it to HTML5 or anything else that would run on Newgrounds would be a nightmare (as far as I know, at least)
- The old version, which is GM shell, C++ scripts, which, using a HTML5 module that you can get for GM, we would be able to convert to HTML5, and then some extra legwork would be needed to get it to run properly considering the scripts and that the module is buggy in general

That might take me a bit then, I'm gonna have to make a second discord account to sign in with, as I don't want to use my SFW account to sign in there with.

If you can legitimately do this, and it'll run on Newgrounds, then by all means we'd be up for that. The physics system for the game though as well as the fuckton of assets we have in it I've been told would be a huge pain in the ass to get to run on Unity properly by more than one programmer though, but absolutely, anything that gets it on Newgrounds etc. we're perfectly fine with.

Would the majority of you say that porting to Unity from GameMaker w/C++ scripts would be easier than just using the HTML5 module? Serious question, I want to go with what's the most painless for the programmers, while still maintaining complete accuracy of the game's engine and gameplay.

They're absolutely allowed to decide what tool they want to use to port the game; it's just that as far as I knew, porting the game using the HTML5 module in GM was by far the easiest, if not the only method to do so that wouldn't require months and months of coding the game from the ground up.

As long as we can get the port out by the end of September, and it works and is accurate to how the actual game plays with physics, gameplay, audio, visuals, controls, then I'm fine with people using whatever tools they like, absolutely :)

They are mainly skilled in C++; the reason we did GameMaker was because we wanted to rush out a demo ASAP to show what we were going for, but then we went for monthly demos, which kind of dug us a pit of constantly updating the game and not having the time to port it to C++.

Because of this, we had to spend a good few months porting the game to C++ a year down the road when we had an enormous amount of content in the game, so yeah, never using GM for that purpose again; lesson learned.

We do have a version with GM, yeah, that'd be the one we'd want to port.

That is indeed what we'd want to port; for anyone else wanting to see it, here's a somewhat old version aesthetically, but functionally/mechanically would be the same;

Stop thinking everything is a personal vendetta, the last comment was an honest one because here's the most common definition of OOP.
"Object-oriented programming (OOP) refers to a type of computer programming (software design) in which programmers define not only the data type of a data structure, but also the types of operations (functions) that can be applied to the data structure."

That's all it means, but its not what you are talking about. So I ask again, did you misunderstand what OOP means? Because you just admitted that there's nothing wrong with objects correct?

Apparently time codes don't work on Veeky Forums embed, so just skip to 5 minutes and 16 seconds if you want to skip a lot of opening dialogue. (Not my video, etc.) There's no nudity in the video, though, AFAIK.

I'm from a pretty weird place with this, so my experience is about as atypical as it gets.
The main factor that helped me is that I have a good decade or so of experience in entertainment and writing in the SFW world, which I approached people in the NSFW community with to show I had a good, solid amount of experience, that I wasn't going to just abandon a project 5 days into it, that sort of thing.

I then went through something like 40+ artists who balked on projects and took months and months to get things done, and a large part of this was because, despite that SFW capital, the NSFW comics market in the west (this is what I started with before games) was fledgling then (this was 2014), and most of the artists believed the comics wouldn't make any money, and even less believed games would make money.

So, without any actual NSFW credibility, project after project died out for a good year. Finally though, I stumbled on the artist for Future Fragments, TriangulatePixels, and having been burned by other people as I had been numerous times, he was dedicated as hell to the project. CheshireCat (the programmer) joined on, and once we had a few demos for FF out (and the Patreon was making solid money), the people I approached from this point on to work with me on subsequent projects were much more open to doing so, now that I had proof that h-games would make money enough for them to work on them full time.

So the tl;dr;
- Find a reliable artist/programmer and prove to them you have experience/skills
- If you aren't good at marketing, find someone who is
- Establish a Patreon as fast as possible with a very strong gameplay concept
- Work your asses off to get a demo out
- Establish credibility, keep working, keep providing proof of work, etc.

Executable computer programs have data and procedures. And procedures do nothing if they don't work on data.

The definition you gave has nothing to do with objects, and certainly nothing to do with object-orientation. It's also by far not "the most common definition of OOP" because every other definition I can find talks about, well, orienting code around objects.

This is getting retarded, as you're not even defending actual OOP at this point.

Depends on your dev(s). Unity uses C# and, like all engines, requires some experience to be used to its full potential. If your dev(s) doesn't know shit about Unity and C# it probably would be a giant waste of time. On the other hand, using 'GM as a shell for his C++ scripts' sounds kind of weird, that guy might be brilliant, he might be a tard, but no matter what he is, if he ever fucks off without properly documenting everything you might end up in a situation where you won't be able to update your game because new devs will take forever to understand what the fuck he was doing.

Trust me, I take it as a total compliment. A lot of people think "shilling" or "marketing" is the devil's work, but there are countless games I've seen with amazing artwork, storyline, gameplay, music, that had zero marketing or even worse, really bad marketing, and were quickly lost in the shuffle/didn't get good funding.

The ideal way to market, IMO, is to 1) be honest as fuck; don't try to bullshit people, 2) treat people like people, not $$$ signs, bend over backwards to accommodate people as best as possible, 3) don't involve yourself with anything projects you don't genuinely feel are fucking awesome, and 4) know the "presentable" part of your game (the storyline, gameplay, all that stuff) like the back of your hand (which comes usually with being a writer).

That said, I promise I'm here today just to try and find a programmer to port the game to HTML5/anything else that'll run on Newgrounds, and not to advertise any of the games I'm working on.

Are you interested in the job? Just assuming from the way your post sounds, I mean. I can always, ALWAYS use more skilled programmers, there are something like ten game design documents I've had to cancel from programmers/artists balking or failing to deliver (which, again, we're only human, I'm not asking for robots here, and a lot of them had IRL responsibilities that caused them to have to back out also).

The game itself has no C# in it, as it is now, I mean. Cheshire is uh... imagine Techno Viking combined with Charlie Sheen, but they're a genius programmer as well. During development, the guy's been stabbed, robbed, put in the hospital multiple times, cheated on, gotten in countless fights, went through two surgeries, been homeless, dealt with corrupt cops, and about everything in between.

AFAIK he's been documenting things and normalizing them for C++ now that the game's entirely in C++ though.

If you are saying I gave you and fringe opinion, please back it up with a contradicting source (I knew this to be the most common definition, so sorry for not posting the claim where I took this from).

Object-oriented programming (OOP) is a programming paradigm based on the concept of "objects", which may contain data, in the form of fields, often known as attributes; and code, in the form of procedures, often known as methods. A feature of objects is that an object's procedures can access and often modify the data fields of the object with which they are associated (objects have a notion of "this" or "self"). In OOP, computer programs are designed by making them out of objects that interact with one another.
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Object-oriented_programming

Object-oriented programming (OOP) is a programming language model organized around objects rather than "actions" and data rather than logic.
searchsoa.techtarget.com/definition/object-oriented-programming

An object is a software bundle of related state and behavior. Software objects are often used to model the real-world objects that you find in everyday life. This lesson explains how state and behavior are represented within an object, introduces the concept of data encapsulation, and explains the benefits of designing your software in this manner.
docs.oracle.com/javase/tutorial/java/concepts/

object-oriented programming
A schematic paradigm for computer programming in which the linear concepts of procedures and tasks are replaced by the concepts of objects and messages. An object includes a package of data and a description of the operations that can be performed on that data. A message specifies one of the operations, but unlike a procedure, does not describe how the operation should be carried out.

In OOP, computer programs are designed by making them out of objects that interact with one another.

2nd Its organized, partly, around objects. Doesn't mean everything has to circulate around them (see If statements in most languages, as well as callbacks).
Java represents first class functions as objects with a single method. And I agree with the if statement part - it's not object-oriented, because it works better not having anything to do with them. That's the whole point I'm trying to make here.

It's not C++ to gamemaker, it's C++ scripts within GameMaker, I know Multimedia Fusion can do something similar, so I'm assuming it's the same in GameMaker. (Again though, not the programmer, so I'll try to get the specifics when he wakes up.)

A good amount of this is alien words to me, lol, but I'll ask him what you asked me.

Right now, the current build is actually REALLY sluggish even on monster computers; I've been told this is because of the sheer amount of calculations the game is running that GM just isn't used to having, as well as the number of assets.
The game has a lot of art and audio assets, as well as a lot of code that randomizes what audio is used, that takes into account a bunch of different states for the main character, so on. The level editor that is built into the game is really pretty fucking crazy, I wish I had a video of it but dailymotion took it down thinking it was hentai even though it was completely SFW.

It works off of using primitive shapes, and then using algorithms to determine what "shape" you're trying to build, picking from over 100 possible tiles that the artist has done. If anyone's interested in a short webm of it, I can try to record something of it and post it (what are the webm size limits on this board?)

$1 a month gets you access to the activity feed where I post sex animations and lots of other stuff on the game; if you're pledged there for 10 months (aka $10), you get a copy of the game when it comes out, essentially 50% discount. Patreon account owners should absolutely start at $1, because it lets a person "peek under the hood" and go "whoa, this person updates lots with solid content, i'm going to up my pledge" or "ok, this person does jack shit, i'm not going to pledge higher, fuck this".

We're pretty far in to switch to Unity at this point, and almost universally I've been told the physics engine we want for this game, a 2D platformer, would be a nightmare in Unity.

That said, if someone can pull it off for the port, by all means, I'm totally fine with that; whatever gets the job done as long as it's done right.

Go the old school route; the shadow under it should start to flicker more and more and become more transparent/lighter colored as you rise up, but it should also probably be more noticable when you're taking off, too.

Having the camera depth be altered too to make the ground zoom out some as you take off would do wonders also, IMO.

oh, good idea, I'll do that then; brb
(side note; this is the most civil I have ever seen a board in the history of making this game, besides maybe one of the more fetish-based sites like tfgames or something)

I don't give a fuck if it's "echo chambery" or not. Doesn't matter if you're right or wrong. What matters is that you're not posting about or working on your game. If you're not doing either of those, or directly helping someone else (none of that "lol this 'discussion' is intended to enlighten fellow anons" fedora tipping, please), then you can fuck right off. You're not contributing, helping, or looking for feedback. You're just dragging the thread down at this point.

Now go fucking work on your game, holy shit. If you spent half as much time working on it as you did arguing about stupid shit on the internet, maybe you'dve actually finished it by now.

I use C++ exclusively at present, and honestly I don't know if I'll be able to do what's required even in that, I'm hardly a professional. Which is a large part of why I wanted to talk off of email, for a quick back and forth about the types of project you have planned, to see whether I might be suitable.

I realise I'm not exactly selling myself here, but I'd rather not talk big and end up agreeing to do something I can't possibly pull off.

Note that again I'm coming from a porn background here, so really the biggest factors for the industry I'm in are 1) fetishes, 2) gameplay mechanics, and 3) art, with sound being a distant 4th place (something I'm trying to change by having voice acting in all my games).

So for SFW games, I'm not really sure how that would play out; from what I've seen in the market though, generally you can go one of three ways to get people interested;
A) Take a pre-existing concept or genre of game that practically everyone knows, and turn it on its head by deconstructing it or doing something unheard of/unthinkable for it, but it's still fun.
B) Do something as completely abstract/different as possible compared to the majority of games in the market, or possibly even offensive or disturbing to the point that it generates free advertisement by word of mouth/cult following.
C) Take a type of game that already exists, and instead of turning it on its head like in A), listen to its viewerbase and make improvements to the concept/gameplay so you're essentially making a "much better version of last year's product".

Those three seem to be the main ways to get attention for your game. Revolution (A), Shock (B), and Polish/Improvement (C).

Yeah, this is pretty good!

I usually respond to emails super fast, but if you want, email me and then I'll give you my Skype.

Ok guys I have an idea for a game that I'm about to start on proof of concept for but I wanna hear your opinions:

It's a cyberpunk synthwave mashup ARPG/Hack n Slash with Diablo/PoE inspired gameplay and skill systems. Lots of Blue/Purple/Pink/Orange/Red neon, synthwave music, cheesy storyline and stylised 3D graphics. The gameplay would be very hack n slashy with the MC fighting thugs and cyberpunk bosses with weapons such as baseball bats, hand-to-hand, switchblades, neo-80s guns etc (being able to specialise within the skill system).

Would you play a game like this? Basically PoE but switch the setting for dark streets illuminated by neon lights and crawling with gangs, and switch the weapons and magic for retro tech, fists and bludgeoning weapons.

And what sort of camera implementation would you prefer: Devil May Cry style 3rd person hack n slash, TPS with crosshair, FPS or the traditional isometric camera like Diablo/PoE (I lean towards this one because I think skill systems would be much better with more buttons available for them).

And lastly, do you think drivable motorbikes and cars would be a must-have in this setting? It would be difficult to implement with an isometric camera.

I don't know a professional programmer who doesn't consult Google or Stack Overflow at least once a day. I've mentioned this here before, but every now and then I have to double check how to initialize an array. Grasping the logic of programming is much more important that the individual functions, which vary from language to language, anyway. Do some exercises in your language of choice and then move on to small games when you're ready.

TalkBomber
TalkBomber

Unless you are a very special kind of autist, don't do that.
If you've never programmed before, going through a formal tutorial is probably your best option. Once you have a solid grasp on one language, ususally you learn new ones by trying to code and looking up the functions and language features that you need. Personally, it took me a year of CS to really understand programming enough to gamedev, even though I'd dabbled before that and had exposure to programming in GM and RPGmaker. Now that I have that formal structure, I can pick up new languages.

I'm a mediocre artist, mediocre programmer, writer, and everything in between.

my dream was to be a 1MA.
but that dream is everytime now so distant and hard.

I compare my output with what pro does and can't feel but depressed because nobody will give a shit about me or what I do, never.
most people will rather play an AAA game that my mediocre shit.

So I was looking at specializing.
It seems my best shot is to study programming in college.

but even making a full game is so much work I still give up and feel depressed.

do you think I can pull off some demo, a shitty demo with the barebones gameplay and shitty programmer art and get people interested and form a team?

will it be easier than just being the idea guy?

Do you want the number to go toward infinity?
big_number = constant / (zero_number ^ 2);

For both of these you have to check if big_number <= 0.

do you think I can pull off a demo and get people interested
I mean, this is literally what I did for Future Fragments and every other game I've done after. That said, people will only be interested if you prove you have a solid battle plan.

For a comparison, think about it like you're about you loan your friend $10,000 bucks to start up a small business.

One version of your friend buys a building to start up their business, makes some logos, and makes a website talking about their business.

The other one does all three of those, plus has an entire list of what they plan to do to keep the business going, places they plan to market, how and why they think their business will succeed, prior experience in that market that was successful, constant website updates and responses to investors, as well as an expansion plan to push out into other cities and so on.

Most people would invest in the latter, obviously, because they feel their money/return on investment would be more secure.

That said, personally, I feel that while some people will just forever suck at programming (like me), or art (like me), or music (like me), or writing (well, not like me, but you get my point), PR is something that can be effectively taught/learned as it's pretty objective rather than subjective like the other three things, and PR can definitely get a project going/off the ground, but you need art/writing/programming/sound to keep fuel in that engine once you've got it going.

tl;dr yes, you can pull that off, but just make sure you have competent people on board alongside you ASAP or people will quickly lose interest. making games is really, really grueling/hard work if you want to make it a living, and if you're lucky, you'll be living paycheck to paycheck, instead of having to do another job on the side like most people making games. it's also incredibly rewarding and fun to do though if you're a workaholic, and you get to sit at home while you do your job.

All of those fields take time and effort to learn. I'm sure some personality types can learn some fields easier. Some people feel the same way as you do, except they can never learn the soft skills for PR. We can talk about personality differences and how it affects skills, bu let's not assume one field is somehow unteachable.

I'm new to C and was trying to make a simple text adventure game. Very simple, the 'rooms' are a 2D grid and the player walk around to find and pick up resources. When he have enough he can return to the beginning and repair his vehicule. The end.

The 'rooms' each have a different description and contains different resources/items that are or not relevant to the player.

But the way i did it every time you start the game the descriptions and object will not be placed the same, it'll be different like a roguelike. (except for debugging and testing i'm using the same seed to check that everything is going well).

It was working well (walking around and the different descritpions) and today i tried to write a function and now it crashes. I figured i messed up something with the memory and was very down all day (also my algorithm for placing items was very bad i got rid of it and will try another tomorrow)

As i said i'm new to C so i thought it wasn't a big deal to write some wanky code if i can manage to make it work somehow i would learn stuff and do better next time.

It really got me though, i was down all day and still am even though i fixed the crashes (turns out gets() isn't really good to use either). I think maybe i choose something too difficult.

Do you know of simple project/idea/exercise that are simple yet challenging (meaning i can learn from it) and doable with only C no library ?

I can only really direct you to porn sites, as that's where I market, but Tumblr in general is massive for spreading the word about creative things if you make a solid looking post and can get someone big to reblog it in that market (like, if you're making an RPG game, getting someone big in RPG games or even youtube videos or twitch streams to reblog it).

If you're going for hentai games, ulmf is huge, probably the best place to post after tumblr. Outside of that I can't really recommend anywhere besides Veeky Forums which you're already knowledgeable about, of course.

Not sure what you mean by "field insider". Programming/art/music all have rules and can be taught, of course. What I meant more was that I can have 100 years of experience at music, but there is every chance that no matter what I make, it just sucks and I don't "get it".

PR though is literally "be nice to people and inform them of things about your game, and post everywhere you can". It's a hell of a lot harder to screw up PR than it is music, which is why I'm envious of progammers/art/musicians.

Out of curiosity, which is better to upload to sites like Newgrounds or just in general for a platforming game with a lot of physics involved; WebGL or HTML5?

That's a great early project! Congrats, I wouldn't feel down on the progress you made, but I remember an early exercise of drawing different shapes to the screen using characters. It wasn't the most exciting project but it taught me a lot about basics (like I can draw a hexagon in *'s by drawing the top half, then re-using that same code to draw the bottom half). And it's extensible, so you could start simple but later have it prompt for which character, prompt for multiple shapes drawn, prompt for margins/spacing/layout...

Maybe too simple or boring but that's an exercise with some fundamentals.

PR vs art/music/programming
The point I was trying to make is that there are people for who "be nice to people and inform them of things about your game, and post everywhere you can" does not come naturally, and feels impossibly hard, and these people are thinking "how can you be so stupid, programming is literally just writing down exactly what you want the computer to do". There is this blindness towards the fact that other people think vastly differently. Maybe it's more understood here because like half of Veeky Forums the site is on the spectrum, and know that normies think different.

html5 vs webgl
from what I understand, WebGL is one way to render games in browser. WebGL uses HTML5. Not an expert on this.

True about the whole "feels naturally" thing, I guess what I should have said was density of content, too. There's a million different things you could learn about music, and programming, and writing, and art, enough for a hundred lifetimes, but for PR, there's vastly less "content" to learn from, so it should take a lot less time to learn enough from it to be competent at it, even if it's difficult to learn.

This reminds me of a really old game called Warheadz where you could make your own weapons through some simple options in the game (like 10 steps of your warhead, step 1 could burn things, step 2 could explode things, step 3 could build another planet, step 4 could send electricity around the planet it was on), it was a great multiplayer game back in the day. Wish someone would do a modern remake of it with the technology we have available now, honestly.

So when I was talking about the editor earlier, below is a video of me making a really horribly designed map for Future Fragments, sped up by 400% (so this took about 5 minutes), with a few seconds of really laggy gameplay (because I was recording while playing) at the end.
