Just a simple Test build of my game figured I’d releases it as I did just spend 2 hour fighting the thing to compile.


Tell me how it runs on your machine fps wise. Hopefully it  runs at a reasonable rate.

Edit: Oh you people need controls don’t you

wasd to move.

numberpad to shoot.

Build Problems

Ok I’m having some issues right now with creating an executable jar file for the game. I’m using the netbeans IDE and the first time I tried I got an error saying  no lwjgl in java.library.path after fiddling with it for a while I used jar splice to create a fat jar and now get the error Can’t Load IA 32-bit .dll on a AMD 64-bit platform. I have no idea what to do about this and all I found via googling has brought up nothing. I doesn’t seem to have anything to do with the operating system or version of java as I tried running it on my 32-bit laptop to see if It would run. But its not working if anyone knows what to do please help me on this one I would hate for a days work to go to waste. My other option is to program an entirely new engine from scratch instead of using Slick 2D and to be honest I don’t really want to do that.

Some Graphical Improvements

After a bit of fiddling I’ve improve the graphics quite a bit and have created a non stand in character. The best part is its not even what I was trying to draw it was supposed to be a space ship of sorts 😀

First Screenshot of the game as you may be able to tell I both have some rudimentary map generation done and I fail at art. But Fear not my friends At the rate I’m going I may actually have time to make some decent art.

Its that time of the year again

Its that day again isn’t it the day I spend 48 hour with no sleep desperate to create a game in an incredibly tight timeline. Maybe this year will be easier, This Time I admit I won’t create a custom game engine, I’ll be using Slick 2D it may help probably won’t but lets see what happens.

I refuse to call it a postmortem for the end of the dare is not the end of the game , Due to how much i like the idea and the game-play i will continue Chronoflux. now to get down to the meat of the post.

What went right:

-Sound creation was a breeze with sfxr and Greasemonkey’s Autotracker-bu it took all of 5 seconds to add some sound to the game;

-Art creation though its not a work of art by any stretch I made art that make your eyes bleed and it take too much time.

-Infinite Coffee who needs sleep anyway

-Made a map editor as clunky and painful as my (sort of unreleased) map editor it is much better then if i tried hard coding it

What went wrong:

-Lack of outside testers caused me issues such as the slowdown on level two (caused by poor collision detection) and the difficulty of some puzzles(end of level 2 for example)

-Lack of sleep to be honest i slept a total of 2 hours during the dare, as much time as i gained not sleeping i lost much more from being tired… i may have started mumbling to myself and rocking back and forth one hour… but thats besides the point…

-Infinite coffee without it i would have passed out, it would have been for the better

-Lack of time i lost many hours from my madness cause by lack of sleep so i lost time to add features such as past npcs, animations and a proper tutorial.


All and all if you get anything from this. code +fuel = game. sleep = fuel. coffee != fuel

by the way you should play my game


Its done(ish)
