Ok, so it's written with AppGameKit, not DBPro, but I just wanted to post here as well because I know a lot of forum-goers only use this board and not the AppGameKit one

The video is done! You can view the video on the Google Play Store (in a couple of hours when it updates), or you can watch it right here (now):

Looks really cool; would be nice to see the video when you get it ready. I saw the comments in the other thread.

I mean I have not seen anything arrayed like that around here before. There are many things you could achieve with the effect. You gave my brain at least 10 new ideas for this FPS game I am planning.

You should make an FFT visualization version for music!

Fast Fourier Transform algorythms are often used to visualize audio frequencies. In this case you would have your visual effects respond to music playback instead of direct user input. Media player's such as iTunes, WinAamp and Media Player have such visualizations.

Someone recently created one in DBPRO using FMOD: http://forum.thegamecreators.com/?m=forum_view&t=210863&b=1

I see, so it's the method used to calculate the "volume" of the sound at various frequencies. I was planning on doing this anyway, but I didn't know what it was called

UPDATE!

FINALLY just released an update. It should appear in Google Play in the next couple of hours or so. I'm also making a new, better video to show off the new interface, but it takes time. For now, be aware the current video is outdated.

Changes:

1.1.7 - 12/06/2014 - The Late Update
- Redesigned settings interface, now much easier to navigate
- Can now use Back and Menu Android buttons to navigate menu
- Automode is now precalculated for far better results
- Settings are now saved automatically
- Lightning zaps now appear for all fingers and look better
- Hopefully some performance improvements
- Many other minor fixes and changes

1.0.0 - 25/05/2014 - Initial release.

If you have not yet voted, vote soon! Voting ends in under 17 hours! (19:04 Standard Mountain Time on June 17 2014)

You probably haven't heard of it, but these forums actually have a president. Currently it's Seppuku Arts, but that's soon to change, as over on the Geek Culture board there's been some stirrings. The whole thing is kinda pointless, so don't worry if you missed out, but it's also fun. So GO VOTE! And when I say that I mean vote for



Just go to this page and post "I vote for nonZero". Do it.





If you're really curious, vote first, then go to this page for the original post.

Also, nASA (nonZero, Presidential Candidate, and Dark Java Dude 64, Vice Presidential Candidate, are nASA) have a contact thread, where you can discuss policies.

I'm sorry, I didn't vote for you candidates, but I downloaded this app instead, will that make up for it?

Anywho, it's a pretty neat particle system, showcase of cool effects that could be pulled off in a game or app, something like an asteroids clone - Echoes was a good one made by a member of the TGC community, which was immensely addictive.

Someone else suggested that as well - it's a good suggestion, and I intend to make use of it

Update!

Some people had issues when their devices were limited to 30fps (as a lot of older/cheaper Android devices are), so hopefully this update will solve those problems. The update should show up on your devices within a few hours.

Changes:

1.1.8 - 19/06/2014 - The Tiny Update
- Auto calculate should now work on older devices, or those with weak GPUs (so you should get more than 5 particles by default )

1.1.7 - 12/06/2014 - The Late Update
- Redesigned settings interface, now much easier to navigate
- Can now use Back and Menu Android buttons to navigate menu
- Automode is now precalculated for far better results
- Settings are now saved automatically
- Lightning zaps now appear for all fingers and look better
- Hopefully some performance improvements

So yes, I AM going to spam most of the threads I have created recently with a message:

VOTE FOR RTA! The voting is down the bottom of the page and does not require a login.

Rush To Adventure is an awesome retro Zelda-style 2D platformer made with AppGameKit that's already doing really well on Android mobile devices and Ouya. It's created by Digital Awakening, who has put a huge amount of work into this game; it's well worth checking out and VOTING FOR. Go. Now. Vote for RTA!
