after a looooooong break finally another update on WalrusKingdom ^o^

I am happy to present the following changes:
v0.3.3
- an entirely new main menu
- updated block data definitions
- adapted the tiles
- modified display algorythms
- reworked key inputs
- reworked communications between classes (plus data handling)

v0.3.4
- fixed the critical bug in the new menu structure

AND HERE IT IS, THE NEW MENU SCREEN :D

you control the little walrus and chose one of the paths instead of just selecting a boring item in the menu. Also the backgroudn is a photo of the city map (blurred) that is slowly moving in the background (parallax)

yaaay ^.^

Edit: BIIIIIG thanks to @naz2a for creating that beautiful menu screen!! :love:

OOoh awesome. I like it. Hopefully it should be intuitive when people start pressing arrows. :3=

currently im remodellng the entire menu:

it was a picture that looks like a map (the grass, streets, ...) but I added a real map-layer on it:
it only has invisible solid and non-solid blocks that prevent the user from walking over grass and also adds the multilayer effect to the statue in the center.

but I had problems when mixing real maps and the pure picture everytime it automatically adapted to a changed screen size...
for whatever stupid reason the picture got blurry while the map tiles didnt... <_<

so now It's all a map ^^
That means:
v0.3.5
- updated tiles
- updated block data definitions
- added "MENU" map
- modified key inputs


 :thumbsup:

You could just add trees in the background instead of the blurred map. You can do this if you want it to have a retro feel to it.
You could also have random events happen on the menu if you wait there long enough...

I like the way this looks although maybe the title text should have some sort of border or be more defined, something like this....



(i'm sure you will do it better)

retro feeling like in what game? :)
I actually got my inspiration for the blurred scrolling background (it's scrolling - see my only GIF I ever uploaded) from minecraft.
What game is it that uses trees as background? :)


Edit:
Such details will be added, I promise, but later ^^ Right now I want to focus on getting the game itself done (adding a bit of functionality and finally getting interactive stuff done) :)

@kotu: thx for the effort :D Actually there already is a shadow around it, it's just that everything is still a little bit buggy right now >.<
(to be honest - I have no idea why the shadow around the title font isnt visible...) ._. But I'll look into it :)
but I might actually do litle changes to it later, we'll see :)

@p4nix I hope you like it ^^
v0.3.6
I now completely implemented the menu as a separate map with modified key inputs instead of a predefined picture (which caused the blur bug whenchanging the screen size) :)
the grass isnt semi-transparent yet, but you can see the improvement in quaality when looking at the signs - the blurry from resizing is almost gone, they look much sharper :)
Also the objects moved a little bit, which is because they weren't 100% positioned by the grid until now. ^^
the shadows which are partially mising now will be added again later, but tey have a very low priority right now.
other than that there are no other changes visible (which was actually the point of this modification).

see the change here:




Edit:
v0.3.7
- fixed major bug in menu background scroll effect
- added new tiles
- updated menu map data

Hey p2!
You forgot the little warning signs on the -exit- and -new game- roads but other than that I'm glad you were able to fix the issue ^.^

I saw someone suggested a border around the title so if you consider adding that just let me know! ^.^
