A little progress today, the main characters actually talk! And I've put a little bit of graphics in. Still a long way to go, but (in my opinion), it's just about maybe starting to feel a tiny bit like a game now. The controls are Arrow Keys to move, and Z Key to progress the text.
Oh yeah, if you've already played it, you may need to Ctrl + F5 to see the updated graphics. (People not having to do this is on my todo list lol)
Everything is now drew using my new Sprite system (drawing the tilemap this way was confusing lol), now have font printing. Z-ordering is ready although not implemented. I still have some underlying stuff on my to-do list, but I think I have enough to actually make some gameplay now lol. Not actually quite sure what task to do next. xD Time to have a think.
It seems to run a lot smoother, and it looks good so far! Keep up the good work! :)
Much appreciated, thank you! :)
the steady progress is fun to watch!
Thank you, geouniversal! :)
The on-screen thumbstick now works on mobile, so you can move around on phones, and I've made some improvements to the graphics layer, although I'm sure I will need to improve it further. Next job is to get a font in so I can start printing information, and eventually so characters can talk, for menus, and so on. :)
Oh and the preloader shrinks better now and doesn't look like such a mess on mobile lol. xD
Well, I'm working on an RPG. It's at the extremely early stages, and only works on desktop atm. Here's one of the main characters, Deb, walking around a test map. Press the arrow keys to move.
works on my end! a js rpg seems like a lot of fun to get into
Thanks very much @geouniversal, it's great to hear it's working properly on someone else's PC! I aim to have a significant update in the next couple of weeks. :)
