It's apparently a PC exclusive, but who knows whether that will affect the game's design or not. Regardless, Firaxis assuredly know how to make a PC-ass PC game.
Try Xenonauts, you won't be disappointed.
Scenario sounds just like Dreamland Chronicles: Freedom Ridge/UFO: Aftermath.
Unfourtunately it'll certainly be the same dumbed-down, linear console game as the previous one.
Awesome! Not a big fan of the snakeman. The original snakeman was a lot more alien looking. And I have no idea why that dude just pulled a sword in a gunfight. And a new TFTD would have been epic, that was by far the scariest of the X-Com games. But this new idea seems good too. The roles have been reversed. Very creative.
I never felt that TFTD was a worthy successor of the first X-Com. The idea was daring but it wasn't executed as well as it could have been. I liked the environment but the weapons were sort of *meh* for me. Those crab guys were impossible to take down too! :)
Yesss :D I'm disappointed that it's not a reimagining of TFTD though.
They have just announced XCOM 2
Move to Canada, everything is perfect here. Especially the people. We'd probably hold for an official holiday for the DB palette.
Great, we've had the worst May month since 1962 in Sweden...and guess what; it's not gonna get better in June...it's gonna get worse. Hey India, stop hogging the heat! And California, come here and take your bloody water back!
these tiny sprites are so mesmerizing
Will pixeljoint ever be updated? Not that it needs to ,but there are some really buggy things..
It seemed nice to me!
i have a little question, aseprite is a good pixeling software?
@Meapers: Ah, the lovechild of Chewbacca and a badger!
Fair enough about the 4x4 :D
It wasn't added yet :p
Can't add the 4x4 run cycle because it does not meet the rules of trans and 16x16 speite...its so awesome tho.
HB Syosa :)
I am not sure if i did something wrong.
My sprite is not showing up in the weekly.
Have you heard True Survivor (which was made for Kung Fury)?
Watched Kung Fury, still a joy to watch.
Still need to play the game.
@Meapers his name better be Fergus, he looks so much like a Fergus
also speaking of Kung Fury, there's a tie in game that features some retro pixelly stuffs
In all Fireworks files there is extra metadata included in the files and that's what bumps them up in size. All files get metadata of some kind, btw. gifs get very little metadata. Go to the links section and get something like 'giffy' if you need. If you have Photoshop then open in that and 'save for web'. I don't remember now because I hardly use Fireworks much but it shoul also have a 'save for web' option, check for it.
Thks for the answer Jalonso.
I guess there is something I don't understand with adobe fireworks, because I took a preview from the gallery (9,5Ko), I opened it with fireworks then I saved it .... 148Ko -.-'
Does anyone know an easier software for gifs?
Yep, I have. It's insanely good.
I just got a new puppy! Will post pictures later
EDIT: Heres my dog i.imgur.com/OyFCSEl.jpg
Cheap Danger 5 knock-off with CGI instead of practical effects.
Still awesome though.
The book gives me more FPS.
Has anyone else gotten the new Witcher? It's so good
Optimize or 'save for web' :)
*Fireworks loves to add metadata...never good :(
How can a preview like that only be 9,5k?
I was going mad with adobe fireworks for a ten frames preview and it was like 150k.
How can you do that?
please T.T (<- pixel art)
I'll have to watch that soon!!
Thank you so much for sharing!
Hah! I love the part with the telephone and the gun. Was not expecting that.
Everybody wants to wear prosthetic foreheads on their real heads.
If I were a carpenter, I'd hammer on my piglet, I'd collect the seven dollars, and I'd buy a big prosthetic forehead and wear it on my real head.
If I had 11k I would buy me a hammer! I'd hammer in the morning, I'd hammer in the evening, all over this land! I'd hammer out danger, I'd hammer out a warning, I'd hammer out love between my brothers and my sisters,
All over this land!
For you, previews are always 11k min
I think making a post on tigsource devlog forum is great! Apart from twitter it seems like the best place to keep a preview of a game in the making.
I was joking, you said indY ;)
Indie DB doesn't seem to do much. Seems more dead than a dead fish who died because of death.
I think Risk of Rain's developer started to promote it there.
Maybe try indie db
@jal: what's the preview limit again? I forgot.
@others: Which websites are the best to promote an indie game besides twitter and indy db (which is not doing much for me to be honest).
I had never seen that! Cool link!
@Hapiel: I appreciate your link about PJv4 ^^,
Actually I like ASCII art, do you know candybox ?
Um? Which questions need my answer?
About 10k - you're talking about cat? Fixed it, thanks for the hint.
3 2 questions in one message. You're right, I AM asking a lot.
Finlal, you ask a lot of questions yet you don't recall much...
PJ previews are 10k or less.
Bitslap, you impress me.
You won! (check the comments)
Woah, how's that so readable?
Also i couldnt resist making a 4x4 sprite
Did i mention i am really happy when i am _not_ doing what i am supposed to?
The first gif is the basic block interaction. Destroy blocks vertically and ascend. This is an actual game that i am making before our local game developers meet up.
Finlal, thanks for that but i see a lot of cool sprites already. The game might give me free sprites tho since i HAVE to draw and animate them.
I finally discovered the chatterbox <3
Super cool mockups though! Or actual game?
Oh, it's sad. You're master of tiny sprites.
I am afraid i dont have the time for the 16x16 sprites lol
Working on this, this, with this mockup
Maybe those sprites will be finished tho but it wont be a new bitslap sprite, just a bitslap sprite :D
One of the best RTS games ever made!
No. More. Wind.
I'll try cuz I'm sitting on my job all-day.
We're all doomed!
That's cool but don't make anything awesome because others are hoping for a #1 trophy this month.
Sup guys gonna post some art at the end of this month!
Things happen so always let us know somehow (report/PM/CB/forum). PMs are usually the best option to contact me.
Thanks for putting it on list.
it's in the challenge list now. Thanks for letting us know.
I know there are many mods around here, so maybe chatterbox will help. Yesterday I made a little animation for the challenge and it's not in submission list. Is it me who forgot to mark that it's for challenge or there is another reason?
No need to add me.
I already have ADD.
Someone's gotta add me into that skype
Anyone can add me: peytonisgreat
(Yes, I still have that awful username on Skype. Too lazy to change it there....)'
Edit: nvm I'm there now causing chaos.
I can delete and rewrite others' messages in chatterbox!
What a great feature! Can't wait for this version to come to life.
For those who are annoyed by the server time-outs,
Sedge has secretly been working on PJv4, you can try out the beta...
Those books look really cool.
The book has since games art, interview artists, the history of Deluxe Paint and more.
I've been thinking about buying those books. Is there any demoscene-stuff in 'em or is it only focused on game art?
Yesterday I got this, it's great !!. I recommend having it.
Necrofeeling is the best feeling.
Something tells me that there's gonna be many entries in this weekly.
Such a necroposter!
I like to scribble on the walls with crayons, and sometimes rub my poopoo on the floor too.
lol, should've refreshed my page. that conversation was a while ago now...
Now we just have to get Jal in there
In case the chatterbox goes silent from now on, that is because we have all moved to skype....
I use Photoshop on mac every day at school, and I want to bash my skull in.
I absolutely loathe mac's interface and window management, and I think Photoshop is clunky and useless for anything other than actual photo editing. It's gotten to the point where I just don't do work on my project in class and just go home and work on it on my PC with GIMP.
I literally only use Photoshop because i'm used to it, can't be bothered picking up other programs, attempted to use grafx2 but got confused by the interface and was like nope.
And for Mac - it's a nessesary thing for releasing games on mac and ios, for example.
For some it might be a matter of habit.
I started pixelling with ps (because it was only editor I've heard of) and now it's pretty hard for me to move to Grafx2.
And I have a friend who started pixelling in ms paint (he didn't have internet back then so paint was only editor avalible) and don't use anything else. Even on windows 8 he downloaded xp version of paint.
I own both a mac and a cheap windows laptop, and the UI on OSX is much better in my opinion. File managers are much neater, although maybe I'm just too used to macs.
Well... Why anyone would use a Mac is another thing that's beyond me.
It would not be beyond you if you only pixel on a Mac.
Nice skull! I like pencil sketches. Nothing beats those.
Why anyone would use Photoshop for pixel art is still beyond me.
Is there any pros compared to tools made especially for pixel art, such as Grafx2 and ProMotion?
I can name hundreds of cons, but I can't think of any pros.
Ahhh! I get it now. That option is not a PS thing because you click the foreground/Bg color with one click in the tab, main palette or double clicking. They must assume you don't really need that as an option I guess. You can do this however:
Assign a keyboard shortcut to the Foreground Color Picker.
Go to Edit>Keyboard Shortcuts and select Tools in the Shortcuts For drop-down menu.
Scroll down until you see Foreground Color Picker and click on it.
Enter a letter to change the shortcut. (I reccommend J, because I am awesome)
If you choose a letter that’s already in use you can override by hitting the Accept button to make the change.
I dono about getting it "locked" to the HUD, but you can press shift+alt+right click to have the color silder picky thing appear on the screen. I'm not sure this is what you meant, but i hope it helps.
also as for non-pixel art I've done, this is the only one that's perhaps worth showing. I really need to start making other types of art for the college portfolio :|
the teeth are also not that smudgy/flat in real life. Just a bad scan.
Don't you paint with aerograph?
Yeah pretty much what Eli is talking about, I seen it in a video I was looking at so I figured there was a way to do it though i've spent like 20 minutes googling stuff trying to find out how and have had no luck.
I think Paddy means a window for palette indexing like ProMotion has. I've never seen that in photoshop before either.
I try to paint and draw as much as possible. I can't say that I mass produce art, but It's more than nothing (but still less than I actually wish I could manage...)
Here's something I've made with oil pastels: dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/14384691/konst/Dilemma_scaled.jpg.
And here's a design for 5,25"-floppydisk covers (it's still a thing in the c64 demoscene) that I've made: dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/14384691/konst/GPCover_Frost-2.png
Once you have the side windows as you want which I guess you nee to include 'colors' then use the 'workspace' option on the menu so that they are there as a preset.
I think you want to add the color slider tab. Are we talking about the same thing here
