Title: KILL CMND [TI-84+CE]
Post by: kotu on September 13, 2016, 03:47:33 am
It is the year 3067. You are a renegade commander for the imperial army (human). Your DNA has become slightly mutated, and is now a strain known as DNA-FX1. DNA-FX1 is being targeted by the imperial army for extinction, although its members are basically human. They live on certain planets where the trees grow very fast.

You have crash landed your shuttle ship on one of these planets, where your friend runs a bot shop. You can buy bots because you're still a commander. You spend your time hidden in a tree next to the bot shop because that is the only safe place to be. You use a cloaking technology to avoid detection.

You use the trees as cover for your bots. The base is impervious to attack (due to 6 separate technologies).

I am lucky enough to have @p2 helping me out with the graphics on this. Check it out.....

I wrote a lot of stuff like greyscale version of 2048 (even with animations), a 1 on 1 soccer game with more or le realistic physics, ...
But looking at the other guy's games I never shared any of my stuff since it looked so boring and crappy an mid of reupen and mario... :/
I'd actualy love to upload them now, but I lost both the old backups (harddrive went poof) and the originals on my calc (the os-is-gone problem). Even undelete couldnt help them anymore :/

So I'm trying to learn Axe again now >.>

Just wondering what people think the lowest acceptable framerate would be for a RTS-style game (a very simple one) where you see the bullets/missiles flying through the air.... ?? thx

*edit*
i guess i'll just have to try itt to see if it works  8)
Title: Re: KILL CMND [TI-84+CE]
Post by: p2 on September 23, 2016, 08:20:04 am
as long as you cant the pixel length of a flying bullet it's all fine ;)
Title: Re: KILL CMND [TI-84+CE]
Post by: kotu on September 23, 2016, 08:25:15 am
what??! lol

the bullets are gonna be 2x2 black squares

(because i can't really do transparent rendering with a 256 color palette)

'this aint mechcommander'
Title: Re: KILL CMND [TI-84+CE]
Post by: p2 on September 23, 2016, 08:32:54 am
then you better make them move fast ;)
Alternatively instead of "rendering" them every frame you coud also think about lowering their accuracity in calculations to speed up the process :) <-- only fo 3D games
For example take any tank game (for example WoT) - normal bullets lok fine but ever watched the flying path of these long-distance things? They're like a low-poly version xD
in 2D games they instead sometimes use the trick to make the bullet a litle bit longer (so its more a line not a dot) but only display it each time it moved 3 pixels or somjething like that (so the bullet flies faster while having to calculate less) :)

Missiles might be doing that for a valid reason - to gain height so they can easily clear obstacles

working on a little demo at the minute @p2 using your tree sprites, to show how the trees are gonna work.
Title: Re: KILL CMND [TI-84+CE]
Post by: kotu on September 23, 2016, 05:45:58 pm
well here is the fruit of my last day and a halfs work (ish) @p2

it shows the world inn accelerated time - the trees play a critical part in the game

(http://s10.postimg.org/471dh9c1l/trees_animated.gif)

*edit*
in a few weeks i should have the tutorial implemented, then i can upload a playable demo (of just the tutorial) and we can find out if ppl think it might work as a game

don't be too hopeful, i am mainly just doing this as a exercise, so i don't care if it doesn't work. but would probably stop if everyone hates me for it hates it.

I like the tree growth patterns. Can they be harvested or something?
Title: Re: KILL CMND [TI-84+CE]
Post by: kotu on September 23, 2016, 10:38:11 pm
No they are useless you need metal and weapon parts. In the year 3067 there is abundant available energy for disposal.
Title: Re: KILL CMND
Post by: DJ Omnimaga on September 23, 2016, 11:03:24 pm
Ah ok. What are the growing trees for, then?
Title: Re: KILL CMND [TI-84+CE]
Post by: kotu on September 23, 2016, 11:08:48 pm
They just grow really fast on certain alien planets, something to do with high silver levels on the planet. They grow quite faster than bamboo.

It is accelerated time in the gif, part of the game is pressing a 'wait' key (F3) to wait for another thing to happen - either units appearing on radar 'sensor' - or - one of your units falling out of cover because a tree died. The cloaking tech is based partly around the subtle energy systems of plants, and it relies on this. So you have to keep moving your units about

*kotu slams the door and runs as his game idea is s***
Title: Re: KILL CMND [TI-84+CE]
Post by: p2 on September 24, 2016, 06:04:05 pm
I really like it how you put my sprites to use, it looks nice ;D
Maybe you could add a little faster growing speed for the green ones than for the brown ones? ^^
Btw... The way you use them was correct - they were ment as different races (depending on water level in ground / ground color) ^^

But actually I gon an alternative way of growing trees:
it's little brown "dirt walruses" that live below the ground.
They feed off earth and rocks and once they reach a certain age a whole tree-like thing starts to grow out of their backs ^^
here's a picture of one: (http://img.ourl.ca/treewalrus.png)
Once they're fully grown, they walk around like this (but only at night time).
Usually you dont notice them as they stick their head into the ground and look like usual trees ;)
(was planing on animating it, but ran out of time) xD

Looks nice. As for weather you could just replace the tile palette with another one. I don't how if the rain/snow overlay might slow things down, though.

hmm in the shop you extened the grey boxes around the text by a few pixels so it's like
[                  ]
[      text      ]
[                  ]
instead of
[ text ]
maybe you should do the same with the tutorial texts as well? :)

really like it ^^  :thumbsup:

You could maybe rotate them 180° every frame. It would be a cheap effect but only require 1 sprite. :P Or you could change the explosion color palette to flash (or make the entire screen flash between yellow and red, passing by black, while the explosion shows up, but that might cause seizures x.x)

If you do though, if you change the floor, make sure its just the same 16x16 tile repeating, if you can, thx  :)

Just seeing what people think about this...

(https://s22.postimg.org/a3j8xsjz5/red_truck_markers.png)

The red squares are possible positions for repair/salvage trucks, which now stay in the base and operate remotely via teleporting etc. (the maximum number of them is 4)

This means I don't have to do complicated stuff (pathfinding) - i don't think so anyway.

Good enough, or pathetic??

p2: i like what you did, however i can't use this for 2/3 reasons..

1) the base is supposed to be made of something approximate to extremely dense concrete so has to be grey.
2) the tiles don't repeat and therefore..
3) the graphic would use 20k. my binary file size is limited to 64k and already i'm using 30k, this is with most code still to be written too.

*edit*
plus, a mech base probably would be grey and not black.  O.O

but im still  <_< gonna try and do it
about 200-300 words i think will do it
might release that first actually

No there's too much to read for in to be in game

The basics are explained in-game, and the short version of the storyline.
Title: Re: KILL CMND
Post by: DJ Omnimaga on October 22, 2016, 05:15:50 pm
The game could have a mini tutorial that can be installed optionally as extra mission. Otherwise I am fine with an instructions manual. Besides, games always interrupt you every second when teaching you, breaking the flow of the tutorial and making it hard to concentrate. <_<

Anyway long instructions are inevitable with a strategy game. Just make sure to use images and stuff, though.

or add a black 1px border around the unit when its hidden? Just so you can see it better ^^

Title: Re: KILL CMND [TI-84+CE]
Post by: kotu on October 24, 2016, 03:05:46 pm
so that's one person thinks the trees should be more defined and one thinks the units should be more defined

that means

i get to leave it as it is

plus 10 for laziness

Post by: kotu on October 31, 2016, 11:30:04 am
interesting topic and a potential end of development!

how should i get ai units to line up (at a specified range of a target unit)  ??

proper pathfinding (as per the following image) would be too costly. i will be using a waypoints system and evaluate squares a distance of 1 square away

(https://s12.postimg.org/66z92k0v1/image.png)

i have been thinking about one possible solution, won't go into details here.
Title: Re: KILL CMND [TI-84+CE]
Post by: p2 on October 31, 2016, 11:52:14 am
if the map wont change then you could as well just predefine 3 or 4 paths and let the units randomly chose one of them for each attack wave ;)
think about those cheap tower defense games - predefined paths all over the place ;)

really ANY
bloons tower defence, bug tower defence, ... there are thousands of them
they always have different entry points (4 sides) but then join in one path.
no path-finding, just pre-programmed paths.
If you did the same but with multiple different paths, It should be fine I guess :)

well there are going to be pre-programmed paths but i thought it would be nice if the tanks could take a detour

if it doesn't have this it won't be worth making the game.

Erm.... <_<
that point is quite nice... but isn't it a bit bouncy in the end? ;D
Looks like its flying around the target like a stupid fly instead of hitting it ^^

Erm.... <_<
that point is quite nice... but isn't it a bit bouncy in the end? ;D
Looks like its flying around the target like a stupid fly instead of hitting it ^^

it's being stupid

This Is A Show Off Announcement

this is a show off announcement

my game uses 14 buttons in its controls (including clear)

hoping this is unprecedented on calcs muahaha

is it?

Title: Re: KILL CMND
Post by: Hayleia on November 26, 2016, 05:21:59 pm
There are at least 14 buttons in Pokémon Topaze too. Maybe exactly 14 (so maybe you could beat that by adding just one more button), but at least 14.
Title: Re: KILL CMND [TI-84+CE]
Post by: kotu on November 26, 2016, 05:25:53 pm
one idea that could result in this is an idea i had a while ago of having F5 as an alternative 'help' key (F1 is the default)

but that idea wasn't that great really

think it's gonna be 14

/me cries in shame
Title: Re: KILL CMND
Post by: Hayleia on November 26, 2016, 05:31:29 pm
Don't worry, you still beat the number of official keys, Topaze has 14 keys but only 12 officially :P
(except if I forgot some but I don't think so).
Title: Re: KILL CMND
Post by: DJ Omnimaga on November 26, 2016, 06:01:28 pm
14 seems fine for a strategy game. After all, expert players will prefer key shortcuts instead of navigating in menus :)

Title: Re: KILL CMND [TI-84+CE]
Post by: kotu on November 26, 2016, 06:03:03 pm
it's 15 now :)

I think Starcraft II uses  the entire keyboard O.O

It's possible to play with just the mouse, but you'll lose most online games.

Yeah, that's why there are 4 "wasted" keys on Topaze when selecting an action in battle. You use 4 keys on the numpad to select if you attack, use an object, change your pokemon or run away. This could have been implemented with arrow keys and 2nd(A) but I liked that better (plus, it's legacy from the Basic version so it's kind of an allusion to the first version too).

ok enough talking about keys!

i have completed a PDF which will go with the game when it is completed which you can now read... here....
http://www.mediafire.com/file/vi02opubk17rpcu/kill_cmnd_pdf.pdf (http://www.mediafire.com/file/vi02opubk17rpcu/kill_cmnd_pdf.pdf)

also I plan to issue a 'example' of what is coming, not really a demo, just basically what you have seen in the gifs so far, with a few minor touches. Because @p2 was complaining a bit. Ha ha! Would rather do this than release a 'almost complete' version

Enjoy your read! and have a nice day

I think he means how in the PDF, there's an huge white frame surrounding the text area, while the text has the greeen background. I'm unsure if it's an Adobe bug or intentional, though.

Anyway @kotu you should stop getting mad or attacking anyone that gives constructive suggestions or criticism about your projects. That's what project showcase is for to a certain extent, after all. If you don't want any suggestions then fine, don't implement them, but don't jump on people who are doing only the normal thing any forum member on the entire Internet would do.

If you want people to continue caring about this project, then have respect for them. Thank you.

I did notice some issues with controls actually. I suspect this is only in the emulator, but for me, if I go in the credits screen and press enter by accident while in there, I have to press clear multiple times in order to get out. The other issue is that in the game, I cannot hold down the arrows to move the cursor around. I have to press the arrow key repeatedly. Other than that I like the idea so far. I can't wait for the enemies but I understand this will take a while to code >.<

Also the tutorial is a nice touch. Very few calculator game had tutorials like this to get the player started. :)

Ah I see about the arrows.  How big can the maps be by the way? Because I could see those arrow controls become a problem if the map can be like 128x128, unless you can jump from place to place from the minimap by pressing arrows while holding down another key (which would move a cursor on the minimap and clicking would make you jump instantly). It's fine if the map can't get much bigger than now, though.

well, it could run a lot faster than that on PC

the frame rate is limited to about 20fps in this case because it's run by a system timer - the smallest reliable time step is about 50ms

its just on pc at that speed

calc will be slower..... although... from my initial tests, even a framerate as low as 7fps would be pretty acceptable for this game

Post by: DJ Omnimaga on January 19, 2017, 05:52:22 am
For the calculator frame rate, what you can probably do is only process a certain amount of units per frame but check for keypresses every frame, so that despite stuff moving around 5-7 FPS, you can still move the cursor and select stuff faster, thus, controls remain responsive.

As for the units, I never programmed a strategy game, but I did play Starcraft quite a bit, so I can probably help you with unit balance in terms of types and weaknesses. Usually you got light, armored and heavy units, melee, medium range or long range attacks and various types of projectiles, with some units moving faster than others. But the combinations depend of the race. Also, the basic units are often weak, but can still be handy later in the game (although not much in the very end). Generally, fire and acid projectiles are strong against non-armored units and missile style projectiles are strong against armored units. As for heavy units, usually melee units are very strong against them when their speed is upgraded because heavy units often have troubles attacking at short range. There are also air units but not all RTSes have them.
Title: Re: KILL CMND [TI-84+CE]
Post by: kotu on January 19, 2017, 05:57:16 am
Yeah my game is going to be probably the simplest strategy game around in terms of units. There are only really 3 units (also a scout car but that does not attack) - 1 long range, 1 medium and 1 short range. Want it to be as simple as possible in that respect. I often think strategy games have too many unit types.
Title: Re: KILL CMND [TI-84+CE]
Post by: p2 on January 19, 2017, 08:42:20 am
I wonder, how many bullets can the red ones take?
and how fast are the blue's guns?
one shot fired and the next one after the previous one hit? or one every second? :)

no

the tanks are pretty hardcore and lrm is just a support unit really
Title: Re: KILL CMND [TI-84+CE]
Post by: p2 on January 19, 2017, 12:43:22 pm
LRM 3.125*0.3 = 0.9375dmg/s
SHELL 5*0.5 = 2.5dmg/s
LASER 0.41dmg/s

while

Daywalker HP = 1.9
LRM HP = 1.0
Tank HP = 1.6

isnt the SHELL a bit overpowered? it could easily bring down a tank within a second...  :ninja:

Post by: DJ Omnimaga on February 03, 2017, 01:00:41 am
I notice that the killed units disappears gradually (one by one). It might definitively be a good move if making them disappear all at once causes massive lag. Good luck! You should try to make this program for the calc and test in CEmu to see how fast it is when the entire screen is filled with 150 units of each color :)

i am actually working on integrating this stuff into the game at the moment

btw you only ever to get to have 15 units at once XD

15 units total or per type? 15 total would be fine but I guess it depends if it limits the game possibilities. One thing you could do is make certain units so that they're grouped. Eg mini units that are bought in packs of 4, with low HP and always moving around together. When hit by big projectiles, all units would lose HP at once while if hit by small projectiles, only one would take damage at a time, dying one by one. If one unit dies then the sprite would change to a new sprite only showing 3 units, then 2 units, then 1.

it wont really limit the game possibilities

like i have said before, don't expect too much from this game, i am mainly doing it as an exercise in completing something -fairly- complex which is a full game

it might be quite interesting  though

In any case, I can't wait to see the result. :)

Hey @kotu, what about Kill Command? There hasn't been an update in a long time  :ninja:

Well, I fixed the bug that was introduced by refactoring, not done much else apart from that

try to at least do one tiny bugfix per week, ok? :)
Don'T want you to abandon the project D:
(and if you dont work with it regulary  you might forget how key elements of it work which would mean the end of it as well) :/

Motivation is definitively hard to come by <_<. I hope this project comes to fruition :)

@p2 thinks it's full of bugs :trollface:


.....(and if you dont work with it regulary  you might forget how key elements of it work which would mean the end of it as well) :/
Wouldn't mean the end of it.... you have to deal with this all the time. You just have to refamiliarise yourself with the bits of the code you want to work on,

That is the worst part I think <_< (when I remade Mana Force for the CSE and added new features, it took me like a week to decipher what the original code did). And when I tried resuming Illusiat 13 6 years after it died, I gave up because I could no longer figure out which code was where >.<. Thankfully, with C you can comment your code, which isn't a viable solution in TI-BASIC since the comments overwrites Ans and slows the game down considerably.

It helps if you have your code neatly compartmentalised into different logical units, which perform different operations. In fact this is the only way you get anything advanced done - it's essential

I love this project, and i am very excited to see it continued!! Also, kotu, I have a CE and I am decent with image editing/creation, so i can help with creating sprites and stuff (I have helped @PT_ with some stuff for AoCE) so I can help if you need some!  :w00t: :w00t: :w00t: :w00t: :w00t:

That's really kind of you Pieman and thanks for your comments
With regards to the sprites... I think all the graphics are already taken care of (as far as I can remember), but thankyou :)

talking about motivation... can i have a dose of that? I have so many unfinished things

but anythings, kotu, have what little motivation i can spare!

Post by: DJ Omnimaga on March 29, 2017, 04:27:41 pm
I wonder... Will it be possible in the options to change the color of our units and enemy units like in Starcraft and Warcraft? I thought I would suggest that since units are made of two colors, it seems. Regardless, I hope you find motivation to work on this again soon.

@DJ Omnimaga , i think that would complicate things too much, as there are actually 4 teams (or sides) involved in the game
Title: Re: KILL CMND
Post by: DJ Omnimaga on March 31, 2017, 02:04:40 am
It's up to you. I was wondering since Starcraft has up to 8 teams :P (but then your color choices are very limited). Anyway I can't wait for the next updates :)
