Holley must be getting restless. I can already see her ranting whenever Axem touches an old mission file.

You're telling me! No wonder nothing gets done, its just the same 5 missions he keeps working on. I mean look at this one item on his to fix list...

* Fix Epsilon 1's Headanis so they appear again

Axem, that did not need fixing. You're just George Lucasing the mod!

Now I have all the proof I need to put him away for ever...

Thanks!

Re: Just Another Day Development Blog
My latest area of improvement at the moment is the xtreme JAD:XA. For one I fixed that annoying bug in the endless gauntlet where enemies don't start spawning again during the credits. (Huzzah huzzah)

But I also cleaned up the Arcade Hub a bit. Before you entered a challenge by targetting a special ship and then a prompt box would appear and you chose if you wanted to go in or not. As well the high scores would appear there and in a training message. But it could be done... better...

And thus with the magic of render to texture and a specially made 18 "character" font, I made it so the high scores actually get printed on giant billboards. Also you fly into the billboards to go to the missions now (maybe I have been playing Super Mario 64, so what??)



And I continued the billboard idea to the rest of the information giving in the arcade hub. Now its a lot easier to compare the stats of the Ezechiel and the Rhea and future fighters that will get added later.



What will Axem do with this knowledge of render to texture? Only pure evil, one would expect.

Looks awesome! :)

ps just needs some anti-aliasing on those lines :warp:

Naturally, but I for one look forward to it!  :D

The improvements to the arcade hub look pretty great, I like the Ares's billboard in particular.

I'm interested to see what those future fighters end up being.

Re: Just Another Day Development Blog
While I take forever in trying to get everything ready for JAD2.21's re-re-rerelease, here's the full first episode for your previewing consumption!

https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLWg9yLI-RerdqZpQn95KzRLvBd_qOe5xf

I'm just waiting on one more asset to be finished up by mjn and then it's just a few other tweaks here and there... Maybe in a week or two? Hopefully nightlies will still be stable by then!

And then it's onward to finish JAD2.22!

I received insider information that JAD2.22 will contain hats of sort.

Make of that what you will.

Re: Just Another Day Development Blog
We're really hoping that Hats 4.0 will be ready to go in the next alpha, 6.88. This will include completely procedural generated hats, as well as real time aging and wear and tear. You will be able to go through JAD for 500 hours and not see the same hat twice. You'll be able to trade hats with friends and maybe even meet in the very same hat shop that you discovered and named.

Did I mention crafting? You'll be able to craft your own hats as well. That'll be coming with the crafting 9.7 due for Alpha 20.37.

Hopefully JAD2.22 will be ready in time for Alpha 99.Kiwii.Zorgatrope.

See you in the 'vorse! o9

Re: Just Another Day Development Blog
Okay so obviously things got pushed back a bit. But now I guess JAD2.21 super deluxe remastered will release with JAD2.22 in, let's say 2034 +/- 17 years. (Just covering my bases)

But the delays were not for naught. I totally revamped all the weapons so they are actually fun and exciting. I'll try and remember to post some videos. There's the plain stuff like the Prometheus S2 or Maxim X, but also new stuff like the rapid firing Flak Cannon, Berserk-enhancing Prometheus X, untargetted heatseeking Hanabi (replacing the Rockeye) and the battering ram like MegaDoom torpedo (replaces the bombs). And a bunch of other silly weapons such as the Meme Mine.

I'll try to get some videos showing off these weapons. They're really neat!

So there's that to look forward to!

Anyone been trying out nightly builds? JAD's going to need them, since we're always on the cutting edge of technology and good taste.

Re: Just Another Day Development Blog
I should go have a play with the new weapons to confirm they're 100% neat (they certainly ~sound~ 100% neat!)
