@Ptoing reminds me of PS1 era games, i'll have to check it out when it's released it looks really fun.
"Next project will very likely be pixelart though."
And therein shall you find your redemption.
The textures on the terrain and the powerup icons are pixelart, as well as the font :P
No shame in making a NPA game. Next project will very likely be pixelart though.
Alas, it ain't pixel art. Bow your head in shame mister.
Cheers. And yeah, if you can gather 3 or more people to play with, which should not be hard, since it is a drop in / drop out online it is a lot of fun. Gets very crazy with 4 or more players.
Looks super fun!
A game I been working on for quite some time is coming out at the end of the month (early access)
Here's the trailer:
There also is more info on the website.
Not yet, but I'm working on it
Ok, there is some difference, though it's not that big except adding sticks in SCPH-1200.
Anyways, I meant PS-like gamepad. I use Logitech F-510 since I don't have any console except an old Sega Mega Drive.
You sure know a lot about controllers, btw. Don't you have a science degree in that field?
@Finlal: Here's a nice chart
Not sure if the GBA console (the AGB one. The SP was a huge step down) count as a controller too, but man, I love playing on it, it's the most comfortable handheld imo. Despite it having only 2 buttons, it's way ahead any other nintendo handheld or controller in terms of how anatomic it is. Have you played with a WiiU gamepad? That thing is a monster :P
But in a close second place, it's the Playstation dualshock. Although I don't like how angular are the bottom things.
I use a Xbox360 when playing on the PC, and I quite like it too despiteit it being very bulk and having the dpad and analog in mixed order...
Is it any different from the other playstations?
@Finlal good choice, mines the PS2
Playstation. Except for shooters, because nothing beats keyboard and mouse in shooters.
What are you guys' favourite console controllers?
Thanks Damian! :D
We dOn't have to fight oveR who is the better country, jaL. Don't you agree, that we Can live together United and in eternal friendshiP? LOve and Let live. :)
Ah that. Well they could be different themes
I have no idea lol whatever one the first link was in your forum post.
Isn't this the gray design?
Looks a lot better, even though i'm more of a fan of the gray design
Well then I guess I'll keep posting here!
Paddy, added some boxes: http://i.imgur.com/MvB0JiX.png
edit: even more boxes: http://i.imgur.com/vkjpTGi.png
skeedles, I know you were aprehensive about using the CB for this talk but that's cool, k.
Of course a thread saves for future.
Would love to hear it, on this thread I just made http://www.pixeljoint.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=24072&PN=1
I sUppose Someone hAs no need to be the > funny < GERman today
I like it better already :). If you want I'd have some more suggestions and stuff, but perhaps that is indeed more for a WIP thread than for the CB ;)
Jinn, that is awesome! Definitely has 'vibe'!
Happy Birthday Delicious !!!!!!!
Looks pretty damn cool, skeddles. Even better now with the neutral backround!
Like Paddy mentioned, the segments need some kind of visual seperation. A simple line or even a frame could work quite well I think.
Sam, looks like the Pixel Joint logo would fit fairly well centered on the Blue Notification/Nav bar at the top, But then I do like the white space there.
Also, the main nav bar breaks the grid on the right of the page, Breaking it is fine, but I'd utilize the white space to the left better. Lastly, on the right side you have a padding for the text under the bio header, but no padding under any of the headers below.
I love the Colour scheme, I think it works really well. Also looks very clean and modern.
Not sure if it's on the subject, but I once designed a PixelArt portal too :B
Here are a couple of pictures:
It would also have customizable backgrounds for the pieces:
Too much floating text for my liking, a lot of that needs to be split up into sections in the bg
v2 (I should probably stop posting in the chatterbox)
Thanks guys! aha
Its PJlicious day
It was just hypotethical, I doubt the effort is worth it...
It would be a lot more work to do it with userscripts and it would be very slow. I'd consider making it a separate site (I don't think sedge would want people to change PJ), but I'm not sure it would be worth the work unless people used it.
Yep, PJ skype group is more active than the off topic thread has ever been ;). If you wanna join (or anyone else), shoot me a PM!
We kewl kidz skype nowadays old woman...jeez
So I'm always late to the party, but how did the off topic thread in the forum finally die?
I think it's somewhat doable since pretty much everything can be opened without the "PJ interface": http://www.pixeljoint.com/pixels/profile_tab_icons.asp?id=17621&pg=
Yay, I am already looking forward to see a v2 :).
How much is it technically possible to actually redesign a website trough the use of userscripts etc? Or could we design an external PJv2 that scrapes and sends data from and to the original site?
I think the latter.
So Pixel Dailies are over or it's just eigenbom won't pixel for them everyday?
Article about PJ's eigenbom
I dig this logo!
That's really cool.
Maybe I'll make v2 darker
But shouldn't the default theme read "Welcome to pixel land"? :p
I found some old PJ design on my laptop, by pixelblink
It looks great, skeddles. Not a big fan of the white, but the rest is brilliant.
@hapiel well I'm sure we'd never get rid of themes, which could be more pixelly
@king bobston: you are probably right, maybe I'll try out a version where those are to the side
I like it but imo it gives the stats too much visual importance.
Sweet and clean, but it could look a bit more 'pixelly'....
The more impressive 7th trophy is.
Btw, I would never guess that it's 59 greens there. Number 59 looks bigger than its visual presentation.
Yeah well go look at how ridiculous my profile looks with 59 green ribbons
Looking good. Though, trophy (x many) doesn't look as impressive as many trophies laid in the row.
maked a pj redesign mockup for funzies
jAl, Better Believe dAwnbringer.
oopsies...you people all look alike >.<
Now who's getting their northmen mixed up! :D
Doesn't every Swede have to have a sauna by law and aren't they required to go in it when annoyed
This new "I made an amazing find...haha, no I didn't" trolling/prank trend is as pathetically weak as it is annoying.
That's an understatement.
Nanny is (an Irish?) term for Grandmother Jal, we're poor af ain't no maid lady in our house.
Edit: Those entries have been sent back now.
Perhaps because filtering and colour reducing photos is a piece of piss?
Well, ClefairyKid just stole all my chances at getting a 1st, 2nd or 3rd...Why submit so many?
ummm D: I hate to sound desperate but please can someone review my submissions there's only 2 minutes remaining D: D:
less than hour left eep D: I told myself I wouldn't submit on the last day but noooo x - x'
How could I mix up two countries with only one common letter in their name?
@8bit, I knew his pixels would be a good addition to this site. Took me hell of a lot of time to convince him to join.
@Finlal, DB is not a Viking, he's an IKEAing.
@Paddy, ...a nanny...that explains everything.
Also the deceiver is owning it this week! Strong showing out of the gate!
That brought back a memory of my Nanny and I racing snails out the back garden when I was 4 or 5. it was the day of my uncle's wedding and me being a stubborn child wouldn't leave until we saw who won. The rest of the family headed to the church whilst my nanny and I stayed back an extra 10 minutes to see who won the race. Just thought i'd share seeing as I hadn't thought of that in years.
How's the summer, DB?
Chatterbox just doesn't seem complete without your weather report from Norway Sweden.
I don't run, on the other hand I take walks...with a bunch of snails in the first hand. But from the snails perspective it must be like running. I also take walks without snails. Does either count?
Nice, better than me my best 5k is a 17:55 on a pretty flat course.
@dragonmarx, yeah 400 is a pretty rough race, a lot of sprinting.
and yeah I can stop all this running talk too haha.
I'm trying cross country after my spectacular failure at the 400 last year... been running for about half an hour every day, turning the speed up a mph every minute (4-9mph) in an attempt to get my cardio back up from being lazy.
EDIT: Has the PJ google search been broken for a while now?
Times, sure. 5km 15:52, 10km 32:48, Half marathon 76 minutes. Not amazingly fast, but still pretty decent I think :) Still cross country is where I'm the strongest. My coaches weren't very technical when it came to technique, so I relied on high milage and mental strength to get me to where I was. Anyway, I won't clutter this CB with anymore running!
Its by Big Brother :)
Does anyone know of a piece here at pixeljoint of a centaur galloping? I think it has a hood on, possibly red. I think it cycles around the hall of fame but I cant seem to find it.
What were some of your times if you dont mind me asking? and yeah I've never gone over a 3200m race on a track, but thats the longest they have at HS level for track. XC is a lot of fun though, I switched from soccer to XC last year and am very glad.
The Weekly Showcase looks damn tight at the moment!
Don't know about your countries but in mine there's also the aspect of lower taxes on your income and certain rights for your partner in case you get in an emergency situation since a married person counts as close family while a unmarried partner counts as a stranger from a legal standpoint in those cases.
Not a big fan of marriage but I do see a reason why goverment is involved when taxes are also involved.
Mostly cross country races and road races over 5km, 10km and the occasional half marathon. Couldn't stand track and just going around in circles over 5000m and 10 000m :|
@damian: Damn, thats a good bit of distance. What kind of races did you run?
Yeah zizka, those things might need to be arranged. So why not encourage people to sign a contract together that does not involve a third party? Actually many people have this in the Netherlands
I feel the same way.
There *is* the legal aspect of getting married however. If you end up divorcing, you need to seperate the stuff, get some arrangements for the kids and whatnot.
I think it's mostly a girl thing however and guys sort of go along with it. I've seldom met dudes who go apeshit about getting married. It's a little girl's dream.
It's also a matter of education. If you've been told all your life by your parents that you need to get married, you'll likely do it without giving it a second thought.
If I had my way marriage would be illegalised for everyone as it is an utter nonsense.
If two (or more) people want to spend the rest of their lives (or less) being faithful (or not) to each other then why the hell don't they just do that?
Why do they need a contract and why do they need to involve an external party be it government or religious organisation?
@ Fahrenheit: Yeah, that is not really on my route...
@ Mandrill, I found it on a map :). I might pass it if I'd hitchhike to Budapest again ;). A bit closer than Farenheit!
@ Damian: Nobody is a distance runner compared to you :p. 80 miles a week? That is insane!
I don't care about marriage either way. Mucho impressed this became legal in the USA however, mucho surprised.
I ran after the ice cream truck once.
Woah, hadn't realised there were so many distance runners on here. I used to run competitively until about 2 years ago, but work and now studying gets in the way(and laziness). Ended up doing about 80-90 miles a week which is probably why I got injured. Going to try and get back into it later this summer.
@hapiel, lol I'm in New York...
@ziz: its def. not that I dont enjoy running, I just have a hard time motivating myself, honestly running is probably my fav thing to do at this point, but i guess I'm more into running with other people.
I'm going to try to get fast enough to run in college in 2 years, even if its DIII
