Full view or every pie you eat for a month will be marmite pie!!!

ok, so I had been splitting my brain over a way of making isometric stuff work, and I got it down. still a little buggy but there you go. there is nothing to do yet, just run along and check out the fancy (sort of) z-sorting and the randomly generated terrain.

you can run left and right using the arrow keys and don't go whining at me that you dissapear if you run off the edge, I know and I'll fix it some other time k :D

have fun :)

toolz used:
3DsMax, for the character
Flash, for code and all other (crappy) graffix

lol pretty cool, i've been thinking of doing some 3d stuff in flash for a while and now i've got some time i might try it.

you should, theres so many types of games that work well in isometric... well, not so many, but you could make some pretty cool platform games and adventure games :D

yea i've got a cool idea but the problem is that i suck at modelling with 3ds so it will take ages and still not look good

if you do make this into an actual game, put it to the song Praise You by fatboy slim.

O yeah i forgot.

<3 this thing.

lol, unfortunately i don't got the rights to the song, i'll throw in a mute button so you can play the game to it tho :P

oh yeah you should make him able to jump but make him super light or something so he floats gently down.
Reply
:iconguyflash:
GuyFlash Featured By Owner Apr 18, 2006
well I've got him coded to jump now but I had to make him fall fairly quickly, as in the new engine he runs pretty fast and I want him to be able to jump over two tiles at a time :)

:iconartguychoz:
ArtguyChoz Featured By Owner Apr 18, 2006
fair enough. you should put in a "leisure mode" or something with slow running and parachuting.

lag is the name of the monster that lives in the cables between my pc and moniter, eating any stray frames that pass by...

That should be made into a story. "And the brave scriptor slew the lag monster with his optimized script and coded happily ever after. THE END" :lol:

you should add a 1px overlap on the tiles so you don't see any seams.

His run is hilarious. Not bad at all. I've only dabbled a bit in tile based games, I've never done any isometric stuff though. How did you convert the 3dMax character into a vector animation? Did you just make a raster animation and convert it through flash?
Reply

GuyFlash Featured By Owner Apr 17, 2006
yep, i just did a bitmap trace for each frame of the render. tiny filesizes :D
