I rarely use twitch, better if you upload your streams to youtube.

I would love to watch your coding sessions, but I'm afraid that if you don't keep the videos for later viewing, at least on twitch, it's going to be very difficult to coincide...  :(

Anyway, sharing knowledge is always a good initiative, go on!!.

Regards.

Quote from: reidrac on 23:13, 12 February 22I'm streaming on Twitch the development of Hyperdrive (I've started streaming last week, it is still a bit of an experiment that I don't know how long will it last).

This is my channel:

www.twitch.tv/mrreidrac

It is only streaming, I'm not keeping the videos for now. Basically: I'm interested in making the game, not really in being a streamer (if that make sense?). More on that here: https://www.usebox.net/jjm/blog/streaming-killed-the-youtube-star/

There will be some spoilers as I make the game, but given that is not a story-based game, I think it should be alright. Currently working on the first boss.

After a few more optimizations (e.g. player bullets), yesterday I made the end of stage screen.

When you complete a stage, you get extra bonus for each enemy you kill, the number of chains you make during the stage, and if you don't get killed. It also works as a break between stages.

Only the music is left and I'll have a full first stage.

If you don't mind potential spoilers (bah, the stage is likely to change before the game is released), I've been keeping the videos and today I started with the enemies of the second stage.

(the videos get automatically removed after 2 weeks or so; but, again, what I'm looking for is making a game, not producing the videos)

Hello reidrac,

I received your message.
Alas, I can't send you my title screen: the forum messaging system systematically rejects it.

So here is what I can suggest to you:



If you like it, do what you want with it! :)

PS: email me if you want the original PNG. ;)

Quick update

Working on the new title screen (WIP).

https://twitter.com/reidrac/status/1511955124935180289

This was a lot of work, actually. I needed a new int handler to set the title screen, because the in-game handler has a screen split for the HUD. Then, because the screen Eric contributed is so detailed, I couldn't use the font I had with a simple blit and instead I have now a masked font with masked blitting.

On top of that, the credits will go on a different screen with a hi-score table.

The idea is: title -> wait -> credits & hi-score -> wait -> demo -> and back to title.

I've added the hi-score table and the credits now!

I was planning to do a lot of fancy things on the menu screen, but for now I'm going to leave it like it is. Still feeling "arcade", which is what I wanted. Next is finishing the second stage (including the boss).

Very cool.
The first thing I thought when the high score table appeared was that it reminds me of some arcade shooters.

I'm back at this, after a short break.

The stage 3 is starting to look good!

This is going well, fingers crossed I won't get stuck designing the next boss and stage 3 will be completed this next week :D

Testing the boss music: https://mastodon.sdf.org/web/@reidrac/108944469996398676

Currently I have 3 stages completed (missing the music, though). Slower than usual, but I'm kind of demotivated. It will pass, I guess. This game has a lot of cool things and it would be a shame if it was never finished ;)

Thank you!

I've been working on small things to get up to speed: the hi-score table (and entering hi-score) works, and it even has a nice tune.

When I break the block of the music, it should be a breeze. The engine has been finished for a while now, is "just" adding content.
