Just a little thing I made this afternoon. Inspiration was the tracks thread. Have fun, try not to take this piss too much - post pics of nice tracks produced :)

Sweet!

If you push down to pick up a little speed, you can make some really nice GS turns.

Oops, forgot to mention keys :) Left is left, right is right, down increases speed, up slows down.

I've added a preliminary jump to this one... I doesn't quite work perfectly yet, but you guys can play about with it. When in the air, press Space to x-up.

In preparation for the 'working' week... I've made the graphics slightly better, given the skier BroModels and done better terrain design.

Left & right keys for left and right
When in the air, space makes your skis x-up
using left and right in the air performs a sort of lincoln loop
The far right couloir can be entered around or over the rock, and on the last right turn of the couloir you can jump over the rocks.

Work hard (http://hosting.the-edg.net/edg/bro.swf)

I'm spending far too much time on this... now with glades - if that's you thing - or the version above if you like big clean slopes.

Feeling gladed? (http://hosting.the-edg.net/edg/glades.swf)

edit : I've added a 'dump' button to delete all tracks - as all of the trees and tracks will end up slowing down the game.

edit 2 : made the gameplay a bit better - the skier now skis over his tracks (not under them :D), the rotation when linolning is reduced and trees are less sensitive to being hit.

I'll try and get it done as soon as possible... :) Only problem is that it's much more technical than the current game, and I've never done anything like this before :D I may have been a bit optimistic in my original estimate, but by Thurs at least I reckon (For something where you see everyone else going down the slope, even if they're not exactly leaving tracks quite yet :) ).

Glades (http://homepage.mac.com/egladwyn/Cham/glades.swf)

To give a little update on the multiplayer front - the backend is almost complete, and I'm hoping the front end will be pretty simple to implement (Famous last words). Problem is I have a lot of work to complete, so depends on my dedication to my education as to how soon the first version will be out.

You probably don't want to hear this... but due to my slackness in the implementation of the rocks, you can't transfer most of them - sorry! I will fix it just for you though, basom.

My host started working a bit - and I've got one script fully debugged and working (YEY!), and as I was getting close with the next one, my database server went down (BOO!) but it's getting closer!

oh yes you can, it seems random how fast you spin. I doubled up on that upper sideways-flying bombhole off the first jump, then one of the ones on the bottom.

First multiplayer beta. I have no real idea how this will come out - but you should at least see other people moving around the slope (If god awfully slowly). I'm just getting the networking dialed, next is the graphical side.

Have a go (http://game.the-edg.net/net.swf). If too many people go on, it'll be AWFULLY slow. The final implementation will have 'rooms', and maybe even usernames :)

New version... you know longer have tracks (:() for speed's sake, but the movements should be much smoother (for the other players) and when they take to the air, you can see them jump (no rotation yet).

To get the multiplayer working properly is going to take a while (I need, for a start, to convince my host to let me run a java app on their server, at root level). However, if there is anything you want to see in the normal version of the game, I'll see what I can do! I'm just working a on a little switch mode (Landing and skiing) but if there's anything, just say! :)

I'm starting working on a level, based on you guy's ideas, keep 'em up and I'll try to keep adding. The new version (with these levels) will have special new modifier, allowing some jumps to be big ass, and others to be little drops (for billy goatin')

How about making the "Z" key a drop off button rather than having to mouse left click the drop off button. Just a thought to make the game easier to refresh.

If you want some help in the graphics dept, I'd be happy to do some stuff for you.

Arnold Pants

Awesome. Class just got way cooler.

Idea - how about changing the acceleration so that it is based on gravity - I would think this would be fairly easy, the skier's angle from straight down would feed into an acceleration equation, the greater the angle, the lower the acceleration.

Yes, I do have experience with graphics in flash,as well as exporting graphics from illustrator to flash. Let me know what you would like, and I could create the backdrop for you, just let me know how you want it done.

First run of level 2, as I have to go to bed. I've been trying to squash bugs (and improve the speed, it was unbelieveably slow before, when I was a bit liberable with the amount of sensors I placed) So - point out things I've missed, and presume it's going to get speedier.

Indy : I'll get in touch with you tomorrow, you're very gracious! :)

Versions available :

New Level (beta) (http://game.the-edg.net/level2.swf)
2 Couloirs and dual stage jump (http://game.the-edg.net/bro.swf)
Glades (http://game.the-edg.net/glades.swf)
Basic, original version (http://game.the-edg.net/tracks.swf)
Multiplayer beta) (http://game.the-edg.net/net.swf)

BTW, on the new level, pressing 'z' (Lowercase only, ATM) should cause the game to reset to the top (This can be pressed while decending or once at the bottom, and has the same effect)

I will be out of town all next week as well as tomorrow afternoon, so I don't know how much I can do between now and tomorrow.

That looks pweeeety :) That's the kind of thing I hoping someone could do (Photo realistic sky and cliffs) - but that vector style also looks good! If you could send me that in a flash/eps format, I'll import it and make a new level, then when you're home again we can see what else we could do :)

Yeah this game is sick. Maybe we can get Owens to label this as the official TGR video game and put it on the main page. Some inprovments that would be cool. If you could choose from a few skiers each one having their typical characteristics (ie, Pierre could huck farther, Nobis can straightline better than anyone) It would be really dope if you could work in some avalanche danger (I'm sure Conway would love that) If you get more levels it would be super dope if you could land the heli on any peak that you want. That way you wouldn't have to traverse. And you could have a cool heli lander game. It would be pretty cool if you could work in some dude filming from the heli. GOOD WORK EDG!

this game is amazing and sick and it is definately The tgr game

but if you haven't check out The newschoolers game Jibberish (see sig)
it kind of evolved the same way as this one with lots of input from the community and one kickass member who put it all together

sorry for the hijack

i think this game should definately keep evolving, like with real grapics and newer sick lines etc. I don't want to push it farther than edg can deal with, but turning it into a first or 3rd person viewed game (in version 9999.0997) i think is where this is headed

to make the newschoolers comparison again
ns game-jibberish (jibbing)
tgr game-tracks (sick lines w/ a lil (or lot) of huck)--can you imagine this game at the evolved level of jibberish t'would be orgasmic


edg-im hope this didn't come across as me dumping on your game at all. cause im not, i think its amazing and amazzingly addictive and i honestly don't know which game i like more, I'm just making a prohpecy, a goal maybe, for what this game could become

ooooh oooh i got something else awesome

i don't know if this is more anal (hehe) or cool

i was just playing and noticed that the last run-out turn you take at the end is much more satisfying due to the fact that its thicker...whic got me thinking.

since the name of the game is Tracks, could you make the tracks a function of your speed somehow(?gravity?). They get thicker and bolder near the bottom, but that happens at some arbitrary point. It would be pretty sweet too if the tracks looked different when you turned. In the game it looks like you ski faster when you are at the end of a big carve, so maybe this would just be a result of the above function. (isn't this just acceleration? No, oh ok, g-forces? No idea, ok, um..centrifigal forces..

maybe you could get a smart math/physics major type maggot to help you out with this equation/function deal, my input stops at g=9.8(times)something

Optics : got you email, but I can't view it 'cos XP sucks; when I get home... Looking forward to it :)

Lax : Don't worry, that is the direction I'm hoping to go in (Though Version 9999 is probably an appropriate estimation). I'm thinking of adding balance and so forth, first.

On the tracks front, I have them getting thicker as you progress down the slope, but I don't know if Flash's drawing capabilities really pick it up enough. I WOULD like to have a curve going out from the track dependent on the height and the speed, so if anyone can work that out...

I think what would make the game kick ass is maybe make it like 4-5 times longer but the same size so when you get to the bottom it just starts scrolling down.

sounds good....

The balance thing might be cool, but not if it's too hard to keep the skier from falling over.

Seth - should be good at launching off cliffs and just generally a smooth skier. Should probably be wearing bright colors? (orange and red)

Nobis - fast and accurate. Wearing whatever.

Hugo - should be difficult for him to fall/crash.

Thats all I got for now...

HotTate
10-11-2004, 03:20 PM
We should have TGR skiers if its going to be the TGR video game. Nobis skis fast and straight. Will Burks is the same, but much like Hugo, stomps regularly. Pierre, fast can go fartheroff cliffs than anyone, but with a small stomp rating. Sage, fast, goes big, but make it so he can spin faster (and sage doesn't really like to go inverted)

edg
10-11-2004, 03:27 PM
You make some handy points in your post, Tate. I've been considering what variables should be changed to individualize each skier. Hadn't thought of the rotation, but that's a good point. Speed, turning radius, stompability (No, that's not a real word) and huck distance (This isn't all that realistic, but would help disinguish the marginally mentally challenged from the pierre-eque nutjobs) were some I was thinking of, and rotation is a good one to include. If I do put in the balance system, then speed and stability will factor (Straightline guys can accelerate and be stable at much higher speeds, but will be less stable in short, sharp turns), and likewise the big huckers will remain stable in the air for longer than the clean, smooth line guys (Burks being a bit of both). Suggest anything else you think will improve this move towards realism. I'm also working (slowly) towards a scrolling mechanism, but it's pretty tough.

edg

HotTate
10-11-2004, 03:48 PM
Can we get some sort of points system? And here was my other idea in the realm of scrolling movement. What if you were to have a small picture (polaroid style) of the mountain in the upper corner as a key. Then you actually have to line up your jumps in the scrolling window you're skiing in. It would be pretty cool if it was possible to make some of the open bowls prone to avalanches.

It's possible, but pretty tough... The problem is that with so many small details, you would need boat loads of collision detection blocks, and that could slow down the game somewhat. Having said that, I'm not one for not trying... Maybe this afternoon I'll see what I can do with photos...

I was just thinking that a points system would allow competition. Against your friends and against your own high score. style points dont really matter. mainly because everyone is doing the same mute grab lincoln anyways. Award points on how many airs are hit, distance, rotations (w/grab gets more points, you could also integrate style points into how long you hold the grab for. It seems like you can get more rotations in if you're not grabbing, so that's already integrated) and how fast you can make it to the finish.

just a thought: does the game have to see what you see? why not make a level that fairly closely resembles an image, then overlay the image for the user's benefit much the way a website that wants you to click on your state uses simple geometric shapes for the areas but overlays a real map. this should take the load off the computer and fancy collision detection.

That's essentially the way it's done at the moment - the shapes in the background are just shapes, but there are little invisible 'sentries' which check for collision (As flash has a ridiculous built in system in which you can have complex shapes, but the collision detection is performed on a rectangular bounding box)

Don't know if this is really a points sort of game... :-\ I'm not really sure how they would be allocated anyway (I think the idea of many games of giving points for quantity [e.g. the more you spin the better] over actually visually impressive tricks [sometimes a nice floaty safety grab is better than a corked 1080 mute misty backflip with lemon...]), but maybe...

Anyway, will work on the pictures and also some sort of scrolling (using which you could have a hi-res picture in which you would be 'zoomed' so you could roam about). Also click-to-drop off (You click on a point [when you can drop off] and that's where you start).

Not 'till Thursday I think, though, as I'm going wakeboarding tomorrow afternoon (Total n00b... dunno how well it'll pan out) and will probably have some work to do. But I'll try!

My vote's for no points, no balance, no grabs.

Keep it simple - it's just a flash game. All this PS2-sounding crap is not very realistic to expect, IMHO.

It would be cool, and relatively easy (?), to make dual-axis spins, and to build in speed modifiers associated with steepness.

Example - an area that bottlenecks between two cliffs should speed you up.

It's also be cool if you could land switch (all the cool kids are doing it), and if you could smear a turn on a spine ala Mcschlonk circa focused. Those seem do-able program-wise.

I ws in Teton Village for a few and stopped by the TGR office, Nice to meet the guys who were around, Tate, todd, Schroder, etc., Anyway I walk in and Todd take me on a tour of the place, on we go into the editing room, and what do I see, this game in all of its glory on the monster theatre display monitors used for editing. I got some great ideas from the guys for graphics as well as most of the ideas that have been mentioned here.

As far as photos go, I will integrate any photos that you want into a vector format to make the game easier to put into place with photos.

Sure CR is CR Johnson, PEP is Pep Fujas. and <--- was my way of pointing out that there's a period. i.e. Marc Andre is the best at landing switch, period. Hope that helps.

I agree, Tate. Can't believe I forgot him... Anyway, what's the feasibility rating on switch pow landings, edg? Possible?

Possible, possible... Don't know how I would distinguish it graphically, though...

After you have shredded the gnar or during the actual shredding of the gnar.....take your JONG ASS finger and press the PRINT SCREEN BUTTON (located in the upper right corner of your keyboard)

Step 2
Go to Start > Programs > Accessories > Paint

Step 3
Either [control] + v or right click and select Paste

it's already been explained to you, but i'll try:

when you're done, hit "print screen".

open up word or powerpoint and "paste" the picture. right click on it and choose "save as". save it as a jpg.

reply to the thread, go down to the manage attachments button. click on it. in the new window, select "browse" and find your picture that you just saved to your computer. click on upload.

when it's done uploading, close the box and post your reply.

Seriously, I'd like to see a shot of Tuffy's page 6 line. I think that's unpossible.

you have to come in from looker's left, land right above takeoff and use the speed generated from your turn to launch off. i keep turning too far before launching and make it bigger by going laterally across the rocks instead of down.

where do you air first?
the rock in the middle of the cooly?
or the looker's left wall of the cooly?


I've been trying that line ever since you posted it and was beginning to give up on it


edit: me thinks it's the rock

i've tried the straightline.
i've tried the rock in the middle to gain speed
i've tried the top of the left rock band

i keep trying to come in over the looker's left rock band so you land right above take off.

It goes OK :) Working on a new Indy map, but I think we're going to get a few done before the release (Though that may change). I was planning to work on it quite a bit this week (on holiday) but then I got a job. So now I spend my days filing, but by the end of the week I will have Ł150 towards some lovely on-sale pocket rockets! (Or maybe save up for some Bros next season) :)

Sorry for long time no update...

Beta of Indy's latest 'map', have fun :-)

http://game.the-edg.net/indy2.swf

The newest feature really is a click-and-go; click where you want to drop off and off you go.

The would look sick on a really big screen - at 100% this is massive (though it should scale to the browser window) :D

Max Gosey
11-30-2004, 09:49 PM
The new level is cooool... What are the text boxes in the lower left? Glades? Park? Huck Fest? Are those soon-to-be links to levels (or are they levels, and my comp just doesn't want to accept them as links?)

And one question: a couple times I have crashed midway down the level (damned trees) and when I click drop off it drops me to the side of where I crashed with a straightline above me... I have to refresh the browser to correct this. Something you might want to look at, edg... Not a big deal, but something to think about.

And why doesn't my click and go work? Shouldn't I be able to click where I want to be and then drop off? Or how exactly is that supposed to work... Guidance would be appreciated. All things considered, I HEART TRACKS GAME!

Thanks edg for captivating us!

edg
12-01-2004, 03:52 AM
I'm afraid it's a bit buggy... But, I shall strive to reslove those bug tonight!

Yeah, the idea is to have each of those as a seperate level you can link too. The avalanche is kinda fun, eh? You can straightline out of it, but it's hard (or should be).

Is anyone having speed troubles? I think some computers are having trouble with the big size (this one at school is, for example)

Have fun,

Edg, it runs fine for me. I wish I had more time right now to do the other levels. Maybe soon. Lets get this one fixed of any bugs and then roll with some new levels like we talked about. I have some ideas.

I second the slowness. Remarkably slow, actually, after only 2 or 3 runs.

And where's the avi? :confused:

INDY GS
12-01-2004, 10:33 AM
You can experience the avi just below the cornice on the left of the screen. You have to ski into the right area, so it comes unexpectedly.

Wear your snorkel. ;)

edg
12-01-2004, 11:38 AM
Someone suggested panning the map behind, and I think that SHOULD help with the speed. However, I am rewriting the 'engine' to try and optimize it. I will release a more bug free version of the full screen :-)

Hey edg: I still can't get the links to work for the huck fest, park, etc. Have you worked that out, and my browser just sucks? Err what's the dealio on that, yo?

The game still rocks. And for more flash game fun: Mountain biking--do not play if you have important stuff to do (http://www.fjallbrynt.nu/mountainclimber/game.asp) (just click the buttons to advance through the game, and use the arrows to move).
