Hi


Name : Arkeos Chronicles
Game : sort of RPG or hack and slash (with a few quests)






Introduction

2010 -2013 : I have started a game named Arkeos Chronicles (a sort of 2d iso rpg game). I have made some demos for PC (for my-self and some friends), in GameMaker (not finished because the fps was 15) and Purebasic (the demo was very advanced). I have tested other langages or tools

2014 : Since 2014, when I have discovered AppGameKit, I have tried to convert my game to AppGameKit (android & PC).

I have began in May 2014, I have made a level editor for this game and stop the development in november 2014 (because I write novels and I need time).
In September 2015, I have decided to continue this game with AGK. And again in 2016. Since september 2017, I work on this game again (and on my other game : clash of bots, my fantasy town).

It's not finished at all, but the game start to be nice to play ^^.

Hi

Thank you for you comments !

For the moment, I use camstudio to create my vidoe, but it's not great to have a fluid video of my game.
Do you know another video screen capture ?

If you have a Mac then it's easy, I use Quicktime player to capture footage from the screen but I haven't worked out how to do it with sound yet

I just downloaded CamStudio and i see what you mean. The recording is very choppy. I'm also looking for a Recording Software for Windows. If i find one i will let you know.

I might just have to end up buying one...which wont be a problem as long as its worth the $$$

Nice to see you back in action; I just recently commented about your past work in my WIP; was wondering what you are now working on.

Looking forward to seeing this progress.

Maybe http://www.fraps.com/ would be suitable for capturing gameplay.

Yes, FRAPS is definitely better but recently realised that the lovely smooth videos you see of gameplay on YouTube are done using proper capture cards. Don't worry if it's not completely smooth though, it's just nice to see the games in action.

Given a geforce card perhaps http://www.geforce.com/geforce-experience/shadowplay sounds like it would do a decent job due to hardware support. Again, YMMV.

Hi

Thank you for your useful comments !
I will tried Fraps and OpenBroadCaster ^^.

@DavidAGK : I will tried to do a better video than I have made and post it soon. You're right, it's great to see the game in action .

@Chamaleon : I have a little PC with not good proc and integrated card (a silencious packard bell). SO I don't think I have this kind of hardware support ^^.

Hi
Some news about my game Arkeos.

I have made a new map editor. The first with AppGameKit was great, but not very great for interface and gadgets ^^. And my old editor was... to old and the code was ugly.
With this new editor, I can do a lot of cool things (copy/paste some sprites, move several sprites, hide, freeze, miror, size, color...), add a background with Repeated tiles, add block collision (x,y,w,h,typ), load/save, export for my game, test the level inside the editor and a lot of others cool stuff ^^.

The new mapeditor :


So, in the game, I have add some features :
- Spells and magic : on certain levels, we reach spells. For the moment, I have add 4 spells (attack only). 3 are mobile and 1 is fixed on the ground (sort of fire circle). The spells system is ok, when a bullet touch a monster, his life decrease, the bullet disappear and so...
- in inventory : we can sell the objects (potions...) or equipment we don't need.
- spells book is functionnal now. We can see the spell and his information, we can update these spells (much damage, faster...).
- now , the "teleporter" appears only if we have destroyed all the monsters on the current map.
- 21 new objects (equipment)

Map
- block collision : I have add some block for collision. It's not finished, but it works.
- I have made some 4 new maps and modify my old maps to use it in this version.
- previously, the map was generated randomly. Now I open the map, if it exists, and if not, I create the map randomly as the old version ^^.
- I have made some tests (for fps, with 200 trees& plants, 100 grounds, 100 flowers, 15 rocks and the fps is fine.
- new action object : treasure. We can win some equipement, potions and money.
- now, clicking a pnj open a message with his dialog.




UI/design
- new mob 18,19,20,21,22,23 (not animated) from fightfortress (one of my other game made with agk)
- new UI : inventory, spells, status, some new buttons / Ui spells in the main game screen
- new assets : 1 tree, 4 rocks, 4 plants, 6 flowers

NICE!!! The new editor, is it Purebasic only, or are you using AGK2 Tier2 to render the map in it?

Hi

Some News :

Game
Invocation :
- Now, The player can create some invocations (a gogoon for the moment, because I don't have the level to create another invocation ^^). The invocation follow the player, and fight the monsters if they are near his position. He can have damage and died if it has no more life.
Accolyte :
- The monsters do damade on the accolyte (the friends of the player) if they are near their position (like the player and the invocation). The accolyte can died too. He's again in live if we win the fight or if we die too.
- we can change the action for the accolyte (fight alone the monster, fight only I'm attacked (defend-me), heal-me, heal-me and defend-me)
Misc :
- New Ui : worldmap. We can select the map you want to play (if we have reach it).
- the potion that we can drink (life, mana) has now a timer (like the spells).
- I have optimised my own particles system. Now I use it for some actions (drink a potion, heal the player, fire-circle (spell), life fontain (spells),...) and for a lot of fx (fire, acide lake...)


@CJB :
thanks. OH Rizom was one my favorite game. An awesome world, I have played this game a lot in the past ^^.


@MikeHart :
The new editor is made in Purebasic only. I don't know how to use AGK2 to render the map in it ^^. If you have any information to do that, I'm very interested .

Yes, awesome graphics.

This looks really good.

Quote: "- I have made some tests (for fps, with 200 trees& plants, 100 grounds, 100 flowers, 15 rocks and the fps is fine."

57.8 FPS is really good.

My FPS had dropped to 42+, so I set my sync rate to do 30 fps.

30 is very smooth, and setting it down allowed for a lot more environment while getting me at the right speed for moving my objects, instead of having to adjust everything after more intense graphics made the frame rates drop below 4X.xx

If it drops below 30 then I will stop adding stuff or make a LOD system, but that is in 3d, so your 2d stuff should be a lot more flexible about adding more stuff in.

Quote: "For the moment, I use camstudio to create my vidoe, but it's not great to have a fluid video of my game.
Do you know another video screen capture ?"

I use FRAPS as already suggested by chamaeleon, but my laptops's integrated graphics causes it to lag (get choppy), and the only thing I have found to remedy that is to set the playback at a faster rate in my video editor.

That gets things back to normal speed, but ruins the audio, so it is not sycned anymore, and I have to mute it or edit the audio and then put it back in the video editor.

That takes a lot of time though and does not get good enough results to justify it, so I usually either deal with the lag and leave the audio, or correct the speed and mute it.

It all depends on whether the audio is crucial or not.

Coding things my way since 1981 -- Currently using AppGameKit V2 Tier 1

Hi

Since September 2017, I work again on Arkeos my Fantasy RPG (cartoon Style and funny story) for Android, windows and probably Mac, linux and IOS I f I can ^^.


In june - September 2017, I have improved a lot my 2D level Editor for my games (tinyled), and this tool is great now :





Game news :
- NPC Trade (buy and sell equipments, potions, objects...)
- Load map integration (from my level editor)
for player & accolyte - pathfinding a very big thanks to the incredible MIKEMAX for this pathfinding code !
- more spells (invocations, magic..) : we have 10 spells, I hope to add more
- more items (equipment, objects..) : we have 73 objects and 40 equipments to collect, I will add more objects !
- Animation : I have animated 10 monsters since october 2017 ! Yeah, it's cool now, the game take life (walk and fight)

Quote: "Did you have any luck using the code I posted a while ago?"

What code ?

Quote: "57.8 FPS is really good."

On my very crapy PC, I have 50 to 59 fps.
On my android tablet (samsung Gnote 2014), I have 60FPS.

With pathfinding, fight, lots of sprites and fx.

I have added some options to show/hide some elements in fps is too bad .

Hi.

Just out of interest, what do you use for creating such characters for texturing/animations

I have heard of Spriter / Blender but never got round to doing 3D work yet

Hi

Thanks again for your comments

Do you think they are too much cute ?
I have other enemies that are a little more "bad", like :



or crazy like :



Quote: "what do you use for creating such characters for texturing/animations (Sprite/Blender)"

For my 2D games, I mean with a 2D style drawing not a 2D game with a 3D rendering like that game, I use Spriter, which is great.

For this kind of game (2D game with a 3D rendering, like the old 2D isometric games), and for all my 3D, I use Blender : to create the model, rigging/skinning, animation and rendering.


Quote: "reminds of me of wallace and gromit Plasticine material"

I'm a fan of wallace and groomit . I like those kind of film. I'm a fan of Pixar, Illumination, and disney too (and I like a lot "Ice Age") ^^.

For the material, in Blender, we have several rendering engine :
- blender internal : I use it on this game, because it's fast rendering engine, and produce material I like.
- Cycle : an great rendering engine to produce very realistic rendering.

The rendering depend a lot of the light, not only the material.

Blendman,

Your characters are perfect! Every inch of your work screams quality. Have you thought about copyrighting your work?
If I produced work like this, I definately would copyright / trademark everything.

Have you considered taking your characters and story to an animation studio to create a childrens animated film? I think you should, you
will be highly successful!

What do you mean by copyrighting ? Hwo shoudl I do to do that ?


Quote: "Have you considered taking your characters and story to an animation studio to create a childrens animated film? I think you should, you

Yes, I have though to send my characters and story to a studio. But, I think most of the studios have their own project ^^.
And I don't think the studio use blender to produce their animation film ^^.

@Richard : thanks. Here is a new character, made today (model+rigging/skinning+ walk animation)

@Blendman,

I won't give advice about copyright or trademarks as I'm not an expert in that field, but contacting an Intellectual Property Lawyer could
be the way forward. Look for a reputable lawyer in your country.

Your work needs some sort of protection, it really is that good!

If you have considered sending your story and characters to a studio I am sure they
can convert your models to any format! They are also experts in their field!

Before you do, get some legal advice!

Success is waiting for you!

I would like to find a way to create easily a river, but I haven't found for the moment ^^.

Hope you like it

@blinko : thanks a lot . This new land is named fearia, so it should gorgeous .

@supertino : thanks. I'm on this game since... 2009 I think .
I have made a lot of versions with lots of tools or langage.
2009 : game maker 2009, tests with : construct, fife, c +sdl
2010 : xna c# (tested on my xbox 360, workedfine), test with game develop
2011-2013 : in 2011, I discover purebasic and I recode the game in pb (the biggest version, with an online mode and alpha tests)
Since 2014 : (since I use agk), with agk it was a test, and it was so easy to create a game that I have recoded completely the game in agk tier1 since 2014, and now this is the best and biggest version.
Thanks to ahk arkeos chronicle will be available for pc, android and ios if I can .

I would like to send it to steam, but i dont know how to do that. Any idea on how to sale a game on steam ?

The news of the game :
- 2 new animations of ennemies



- skills : we can have skills, to add abilities or features to the player (like see a minimap or speak to pnj to buy objects...), more skills more interesting will be added.
-weather engine : rain, snow. Others weathers effects will be added soon. Weather can be desactivated in the options.
- fx : fire, smoke, magic... fx can be added directly from my level editor.
- Lan mode (co op) : its not finished, but I have add the possibility to play with friends or family in a local network. Only the tchat for the moment, but other gameplay is begun.



- and a lot of fixes and improvments


I have a question :
Who could be interested to play this game ?
In what mode do you prefer to play :
1) offline , like classic rpg
2) local network, with family or friends
3) online network : to play with other player all around the world

If its the 3), I think I will use the mikemax server, if he's ok .

Cheers

@Blendman: How do you build the terrain having these nice smooth transitions from grass to ground?

@Blendman - releasing on steam is easy as long as you have $100 for the fee (per game) and don't mind sending Value and a 3rd party they use your bank and Identity information. I'd also recommend you have an English version and to get it on steam sooner rather than later as maybe as early access if the game is far enough along.

Hi

Thanks for your comments

It's a simple ground repeated (with setSpriteScaleUV()) and some sprites with alpha.

I have tried a shader with 2 layers (Background repeated + path (image repeated too) + another image for the alpha of the path), but it's not good for GPU if we unzoom (zoom = 10% for example). The fps is divided by 3 (30fps max with zoom = 10%). So I prefer to use several little sprite with alpha chanel (png).

For the moment, my version is not finished at all ^^. I have an english version, but the localisation isn't finished too (because it's not my native langage). I have a lot of Txt (it's a RPG ^^), a lot of quests, dialogs...

I'd recommend starting to build some buzz around the game, maybe a dev blog on itch.io, post some gifs to twitter #indiegame #gamedev #gaming #indiedev
