Your mom is a collision

Today I got rid of a few major errors in my collision detection system. I had a terrible one where collisions from the bottom refused to happen and another one that made the character bobble in and out of the platform slightly. Those are now gone. There are still a few that need to be worked out however.  Somehow changing my movement class started creating bugs in my previously sublime collision detection system. Most of them have required me to add a little room for error to fix... once I've found the cause.

I also worked on the camera for ages trying to emulate Cave Story's cool inertia effect. I think it was coded  pretty simply it's just that that game doesn't have to account for the player speeding up a lot so it didn't have the issues I had when trying to code it. So I made my own version of things that I'm pretty happy with. Maybe I'll change it later.

I also changed the size of the window on start up. We now have an interesting 1200x675 which is quite sexy but not nearly as sexy as full screen mode. The scale of Centure was a bit big for the standard 800x450 so I bumped up the screen size 1.5 times while keeping everything else the same.

I don't think I should create the first level until I have all the collision stuff fixed. Urgh.

Here's a screenshot of the platforms I've been messing around with to test out movement.

Lol I've just realised this entire blog is me talking about collision detection and not making a game haha! Well my original game was a complete mess so I'm glad I started again and now I'm ridiculously close to being done with collision detection that works on slopes! It's waaay better than what I started with!

Here's a new To-do list so I can have fun crossing things off:

  • Fix up that gravity (90% done)
  • Fix collision issues
  • Cut down on collision checking using some variation of intercepting rectangles
  • Make sure collisions work in a way that the character can change size at any time
  • Entering polygons via CSV (probably)
  • Work out an animation class 
  • Get all of Centure's animations back (70% done)
  • Make a running animation for centure
  • Figure out how Centure's tranformation will work in different contexts
  • Create a better way to initialise levels
  • Draw some clouds (Yeah! Clouds!)
  • Create more platforms for the first level
  • Design the background art for the first level
  • Create animated and non-colliding objects
  • Rework the camera class
  • Make CenturePoly symmetrical since rare cases will cause collision issues
  • Think of more stuff for this list
