Snowman's Land: SNOVERCHILLby RHY3756547 - Compo Entry
===== IF THE GAME GOES DOWN, TELL ME AT @RHY3756547!! =====
One screen of almost unmanageably insane chaos! I'm not even sure I have a story for this game.
Shoot the other players with snowballs without crashing your Wicked Sick Hover Snowboard! You have two minutes to rack up points by performing flips, shooting down other players and most importantly, not dying! Use the jump mechanic extensively to dodge bullets and chase other players.
Invite your friends! If you have no friends, invite your family! It's no fun by yourself... :(
=== INSTRUCTIONS ===
Left hand over QWER+space, right on mouse! Click to shoot snowballs.
Rotate CCW: e
Rotate CW: r
Toggle Zoom: w
=== POST COMPO FIXES ===
- Optimized pos sync netcode.
- fixed K/D display.
- fixed respawn on joining session in progress (initially spawned you in wall)
- added simple HP display down at bottom right; it just looked like you got hit randomly sometimes.
- fixed jump misfiring
- rehosting on rpi, let me know if there are any problems
- firefox printing a box character after every single message
- fancy page
- fixed player position packets to only send when necessary! 5 players active at once should no longer DDOS the server with 300 packets per second (yikes!), now it's between 5 and 25 per second depending on what the player is doing.
=== LIBRARIES USED BY CLIENT ===
- uh, the default canvas stuff?? does that count
=== MODULES USED BY SERVER (node.js) ===
- ws (websockets)
- connect (used for http host)
- serve-static (also used for http host)

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.
NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.
PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.
MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.
MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
