Well I have been working this past week on my NaGaCreMo inspired project. I am fully aware of the separate board for NaGaCreMo projects. I have decided to post it here as I am not trying to finish / even have a demo ready before the end of the month.

The first thing I have started off with is my level editor which you guys might have seen the help I needed in the AppGameKit Chat board.
I wouldn't pay too much attention to the text display. As it is just for me to know whats going on and dosnt make since unless you know what they are keeping track of.


The thrown together Main Menu just as place holding



A demo scene in action. Although I have got my level editor saving / loading Coins, Enemies and Tiles at the moment. I have yet to code in any AI for the enemy.


The first practice level the editor ever made. This was before coins / enemies could be added.




The reason I am posting so early in progress is for a few reasons. Mainly because this project is "NaGaCreMo Inspired" and was first intended to be completed inside of January until plans changed.

Thanks guys, your reviews / compliments are always very much appreciated.

I am sorry to say I have nothing to show for today. I spent the day with family running around / eating / drinking.

It was a much needed break as when I jump back into programming after a long period. I always seem to get these head aches.

My goals for tomorrow is also not going to have much to show for it. The level editor is in its early stages and needs tons more work before I can really work on the game.
You will be seeing lots of level editor and very little game. This should only be for short while. I just don't plan to rush things and want to move slowly so things get done right.

Thanks for the comments SoftMotion

Today was another useless day. I spent half the day hung over from the previous night. Still with heart burn
I didn't get much done other than just doing some tests and plotting to be organized.
After looking at the level editor I have seen a better way of going about it. This will be the 4th time I have started over.
Getting closer and closer each time

If I can come close to your editor I will be 100% happy with myself.
You really did a good job from what I can tell by the videos.

I will keep rewriting until its perfect. Not only is it a learning experience and with each rewrite its one step closer to being improved.

I hope to have a video by tm night to show you guys
Its nothing special but its getting closer each day.

Thanks for kind words. They're good fun to code and make your life much easier later on so definitely worth getting right if you plan on building lots of maps with it.

Hey Paul, thanks for sharing. That's a huge help.

I wish I could record longer than 30 seconds of video. I havnt found a free program yet which will do so with good quality.

I'm going to have to break down and just buy one haha.

Thanks Paul, I will have to give it a go some time.

So today I started testing out Enemy AI and how I was going to efficiently accomplish this.
I worked out a simple solution and am very satisfied.

I have a few more things to work out with the new editor and can start working on a demo.

This looks very cool mr programmer. Best of luck with it. I luv the cartoony feel
Just as an aside: I see you're using windows 10. I use Windows 7, is Windows 10 worth the upgrade?

Personally I like Windows 10. I like the way it feels and coming from using 8.1 for so long it seems way faster.

Now all the techy questions I cannot answer as I havnt researched or really care

I made a tile editor a little while back and it had some features that might give you some ideas for yours
1) rather then just drop blocks onto the grid you can click and drag to create platforms. the editor knows which platforms float and which extend to the bottom of the screen
2) you can just "drop" decals or objects and they will fall until they hit a platform (or they will float if they are designated floating like coins)
3) you can also define paths that the platforms will move along (circular, straight, polygon) and add references that will trigger actions in another part of the map.
4) you can stretch the window across two monitors so you can see a huge part of the map (good for creating puzzles that occupy more than one screen). not sure if AppGameKit can do this though


Here's a quick video of some features;

That looks really nice. My goal is to eventually achieve something along the lines of this.

Currently I am happy building it tile by tile. When I have tons more spare time I will set my sights higher and re-write the editor.

I am also still learning better ways of doing things.

All done



Only thing left to do is add the save / load function. Which I already have coded. Just needs a few tweaks for the changes that have been made.

Thanks guys, The level editor is complete. Everything is saving / loading perfect. The data being stored is ready to read and assigned in the game itself.

Enemy AI / Player Physics has already been worked out.
A few things need to be tweaked in the editor still. Nothing major.

I wasn't able to work yesterday, or today.
