The fixed screen size limitation is an old concern of mine.
To many ideas to solve, but none implemented, sorry.

A possible solution, for a desktop game with score and other screen info actors, is to position this actors based on width and height of the view actor.
But this need changes in Game Editor code to let game engine knows the desktop resolution.

A possible workaround now, is to choose a popular resolution you know will works on all platforms (may be 1920x1080), and make the game fullscreen.

PS.: The guys here still great :-)


Thanks a lot Makslane!

I appreciate what you have created with Game-Editor as a great 2D game software creation program for PC, Mac and Linux. It's a fun program to use and learning about the more basic C language is a good challenge that can be applied to learning more complex things later on.
I agree, the forum members here have been very helpful for offering useful tips and skills on how to make things work. I have read some of your tips from previous years also, thank you.

I was able to get in contact with Skydereign, who is also a skilled programmer in my opinion, and he may have an updated version soon, though not with the resizing support for Mac. Hopefully soon as the February 2016 estimate for the new update has passed.

Thanks again and it's great to see you revisit the forum. What new projects are you working on these days? Any new games or programming stuff? 8)

Resizing works on mac, you just can't use fullscreen otherwise it freezes. I'll set up my old macbook again and get that version built this weekend. I have not tested it with other mac machines though, and I'm sure mine is not on the current os, so hopefully there won't be any problems.

That sounds promising, thanks Skydereign.
Resizing it by dragging the lower right corner while in game would be very welcome even if it's not fullscreen mode. This way if the gamer has 1080p setting, they could stretch it out to that size to fill most of the screen. The default resolution for the game is 720 right now, to fill up the screen in window mode with a computer set at 720p.
If I can get a test version to try out the updated window resize mode for Mac/PC/Linux, that would be great. Thank you. 8)

So the export option for mac is having some problems, hence the delay. Also I haven't implemented it to allow dragging the window size, that might be a quick thing to do, but if it isn't you'll have to have an in game method of changing the screen size.

Thanks for the update Skydereign and for your efforts. Looking forward to how it turns out. Hopefully the window dragging option is a possibility.

Update:
The game is nearing completion with 8 stages instead of the 5 that were going to be settled for until this game got the go ahead on Steam. Just have to finish a few more bosses, add some extra things, fine tune some stuff and then submit it for review for Steam to test out, and about that steam key coding too. The game is so far about .5 GB in size, due to the amount of graphics. It's still a single player game even though I will try a few more tests, but the programming is a tangled web all interconnected and dependent on each line of code. Programming is a fun challenge even if things rarely go according to plan the first time.

As mentioned before, you can choose between 3 playable characters for a single player game. If there was a fast way to duplicate the 1 player character with a separate 2nd player, I would offer it, but because the 1st player has hundreds of varying interactions with many different enemies and objects in the game, the task of creating a 2nd player this late in the process would require a lot more time. I do have some other ideas that I'll test out though just in case.
---------
As far as progress, I just finished programming in the final boss.

UPDATE: Game Complete December 21, 2016

Postby Zivouhr » Wed Dec 21, 2016 7:15 am


UPDATE: Game Complete December 21, 2016

I managed to add a co-op 2 player mode in there, though it has different characters (playable zombie, enemy and an orb) that aren't as taxing as the main 3 characters.

The Steam key integration process is the real test. Hopefully it goes to plan and everything gets approved by Valve/steampowered.com.

Thanks again for the tips! 8)


UPDATE: January 13, 2017:

After being approved and getting access to Steamworks Development tools, I was having a tough time figuring out the set up to get everything working, but at last I got the Mac version running with the Steampowered client game player and it's working perfectly as planned. What a relief to finally be at this stage. Next, I have to set up the PC, Linux versions, then see if I can figure out how to add Steam Achievements, which would be cool.

Bottomline, a Game Editor game can work on Steam for all of you programmer/artists. I didn't get any error messages either to my relief so far. I have to set up the store page, price and so on, but I plan to have the game released by March 2017. It'll be a low cost game as planned. 8)

Thanks again for the tips! I mention the Game Editor forum in the end credits as a special thank you.

UPDATE: January 15, 2017:
Finally got the Mac, PC and Linux builds successfully loaded onto Steam, though not available yet till I set up the store. Each game is about 500 MB, but it may be compressed to 300+ MB from the look of it, not sure yet.

As far as the game, it's undergone a lot of polish and refinement since the demo version was released, so it's generally a better experience overall as far as a fighting brawler action game goes. 8 levels confirmed, and the game is officially completed, with lots of testing and fixes to make sure it plays as I want it to.

Great! Only 2 small observations, try to quit the MAC bars in the video and photos so you show only the game and I think that the HUD can be improved.
But seriously, overall is great. I wish you all the best, good luck. :wink:

Congrats Zivouhr, I definately get it on Steam when it's out! Does the fact that it plays through the steam play mean the resolution is more adjustable?
what should I put here?

Thanks a lot, Turon. The windowed version is the one I went with, since in window mode, it can be played at any resolution, while if it was in full screen, I noticed with Game Editor, it restricts it to only that 1 resolution. The filled screen you see with the window mode is at HD 720p, while the 1080p will show a medium sized window in full HD. Thanks!

-------------------
Great news, the game (PC, Mac and Linux) was just reviewed and approved by Steam (for all 3 versions). I can release the game now as they passed it thankfully. What a relief. 8) Implementing the game onto Steam was very complex but I finally got it after 2 days of trial and error (since the Steam instructions were written for PCs, not Macs). February 14, 2017 is the goal release date.

------------
UPDATE: January 30, 2017: The price for Streets of Rott on Steam will be $2.99, translated around that value for other countries too. I want to keep the price lower considering the huge selection of other games available on Steam, and to be fair since it's a smaller digital game. Completion time per character is about 1 hour and 20+ minutes, give or take, x3 characters. With the timer shut off, unlimited time. Each character has their own unique short ending, then standard ending credits with some character animations. You can also remix the levels in Remix mode, which starts with a random level, then adds random background colors and a random music track per level till you complete the game.

Easy mode is just to get through the game for casual gamers and beginners.
Normal mode, I often just manage to make it through the game with 1 or 2 lives left on the original game, no continues.
Hard mode, is very tough, and I have to continue often. You don't have any health regeneration, no powershots, enemies are stronger, more of them and very strong bosses. It's a punishing difficulty.

There are endless continues if you decide you need them. I'm not a fan of limited continues in games since not every one has the time to start over again and again. When you continue, you pick up right where you left off. You don't have to go back to the start of the level.
