Action Requests / Steam / Steamworks.net / Steam SDK
« on: October 27, 2017, 02:28:49 AM »
Hey Guys,

I wanted to ask if anybody worked with this or created actions for it? I really think it's something that is needed, since a lot of games are going to steam and it increases your changes of being seen.

I know there are some actions, but they seems a bit buggy. Here is the link:
http://hutonggames.com/playmakerforum/index.php?topic=8464.msg72165#msg72165

We are going to use it for our game as well. So we are really interested in getting this working somehow. I haven't looked into the actions yet though.

Playmaker Help / Alternative to XML xPath / Porting to consoles
« on: August 10, 2017, 01:12:49 AM »
Hi guys

We been using dataMaker XML, and we just tried for fun if we could port our game to X Box.

We didn't think about this, but it makes sense that you can't store a XML file, it also gives a error about the xPath. It's a issue since we store progress and unlucks using XML files. Is there a alternative? In my mind we could maybe just use plain text, but would the xPath then work? Or do I have to do something differently entirely?

Also we are going to port the game to Switch, and in my mind it's going to be the same problem.

Playmaker Help / Player goes through the floor
« on: July 29, 2017, 04:39:28 AM »
Hi Guys,

We are making our game KnightOut, and a fustrating bug I been dealing with is that the player can go through the floor causing the player to disappear and not respawn, which means it's game breaking.

I'm using raycasting for the player control. Which works really well.

The bug comes when the game is struggling with preformance. I think it has something to do with the quality of the physics. It doesn't happen if the computer runs the game smoothly.

We played our game live and the bug came, you can see it in this video, it also shows how the game plays out. When a lot of cannons ball are in the scene it gets laggy, maybe that's also something I should improve.

I'm a little bit lost here, any suggestions will help a lot.

Cheers

Edit:
Btw. I know it's not a playmaker problem but rather a Unity problem.

Playmaker Help / Raycast vs. physics based character controller
« on: May 09, 2017, 03:27:22 AM »
Hi Guys,

So I guess it's not a question regarding playmaker but Unity in general.

We been working on our game SIEGE! and we have had some problems with our physics based controller. I noticed I can turn the quality up or down, but I have also been experimenting with Ray casting to control when the character is hitting the ground or a wall.

Our problem is that sometimes the character goes through the floor or a wall. I would like to use ray casting because it seems like you have more control and it gives a better result. However the character still falls through the ground or through a wall.

Is it better to use physics? and is there a way I can turn the quality of the ray casting up? It seems a bit unstable as well. I need a big treshold to ensure the character doesn't go through the ground.

Playmaker Help / PoolManager and XML [SOLVED]
« on: April 03, 2017, 06:54:23 AM »
Hi,

I have a question about when PoolManager and XML works together.

I store the prefabs names of my items in my XML document. Which works fine, I then use "Resource Load" to get my prefab name from a path but that also spawns a game object. So that means I can't use "Resource Load" combined with PoolManager? Or how would you do that?

I need to define what Object I'm spawning and find it in my XML document, and then find that object in my object pool. but how?

Thank you guys, it means a lot.

Hi PlayMakers,

I got a question for you, and I hope this community can help me out as it has done so many times before. Sorry about the confusing title let me explain.

We have a game, where you can build a castle. It's seen from the side and it's pretty simple you just place a block and that's your wall. See the attached picture.

However we would like to define if you create a room. Meaning you have side walls, and a celling. Currently we are storing info about where blocks are placed and which type they are in a hash table.

Kinda like the opposite of when a tower defense game detects if there is a clear path for the mobs, maybe the solution would be to detect if there is a path where the wall is connected to the ground and then fill in the backplate of the room.

I hope it makes sense, I'm not sure how I would do this so any inputs is appreciated.

Thanks.

Playmaker Help / Game design question: Ledge grabbing etc.
« on: March 27, 2017, 03:33:00 AM »
Hi guys,

So this is more of a design challenge.

Our game is a 2.5D kinda platformer. You can jump from different platforms, but you can also build those platforms out of blocks.

First I have a issue, since we are using boxes if the player jumps and presses onto a box, he falls quit slow, and kinda get stuck in between the boxes where he should just fall down.

Also we would like to experiment with ledge grabbing, how could you go about creating that? Would you use triggers on each side of the box or?

Kinda like this:

Thank you,

Playmaker Help / Set Properties in XML file [SOLVED]
« on: March 23, 2017, 09:29:00 AM »
Hi,

I'm struggling a bit with XML. I would like to load some data about the player, and that works fine. I then through scripts add XP for example and a player level, in the end I would like to save the data again to XML file, so I use Xml Set Node Properties which seems to work since it doesn't give me a error and the debug mode shows the right values, but when I then exits play mode the data is reset. Do I need to run a action after I set the properties? I don't use a Proxy xml.

Playmaker Help / Convert String to Object[SOLVED]
« on: March 21, 2017, 10:53:06 AM »
Hi Guys,

I need your help.

I'm trying to set up a system for items in our game. Since we are going to have a lot I would need to make it automatic, that's why I setup a XML file that contains all the items we need.

My problem is that I would like to change a icon when I show the items, but in order to do that I need to change the sprite and the sprite can only be set to a object variable, and my variables are all strings.

So I could create a section in my XML file that contains a icon for each item, which I then would save as a object in order to change the sprite. But that's a extra setup just for the icons, and they have the same name just with a _icn in the end as the item.

Is there anyway to convert a string to a object? In order for me to then change the sprite? Seems like the most logical way to do it. It's not a game object but just a object variable.

Otherwise I would need to do a work around, but it just seems silly.

Cheers
/Dennis

User Showcase / Bombs N Stuff - A local multiplayer game
« on: December 20, 2015, 01:22:25 PM »
Hi Guys,

I made this game. Here is a desciption:

Jump over lava pits, push your adorable friends into them or just bomb them to pieces. There can be only one winner of Bombs N Stuff!

Features:
  • A Top down platformer game
  • Defeat your friends in this deathmatch by bombing and pushing them.
  • Local Multiplayer with up to 4 players.

Bombs N Stuff is a 2-4 player game controlled with a XBox 360 controller or a keyboard. Jump from platform to platform while pushing your opponents off the platforms. Simple mechanics but fun gameplay inspired by the classic bomberman.

The game was made in a 38 hour game jame. I continued to work on it. Hopefully I will have time to create more awesome content. The game is inspired by the old classic BomberMan

The game is only tested with a XBox 360 controller and keyboard.

Playmaker Help / Axis using Keyboard or controller
« on: December 08, 2015, 05:36:39 AM »
Hi,

First, thank you for this awesome community.

I made this game called Square Clash this weekend in 38 hours.

Video:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9y6EFOx3V9o

It's working really well with a XBox controller, and I use  "Axis event" and "Get Axis Vector" to move my characters around. I then made some new inputs in my project with the keyboard, and then I changed it so that you could choose between keyboard or XBox controller.

The problem is that when I use keyboard and "Get Axis Vector" to define my movement, it doesn't work when I want to jump as well and are holding down two movement buttons. So basicly I works if I go in one direction like left, but if I move in a diagonal way it does NOT. I guess it's when I use three buttons to control the character instead of three?

Any suggestions are very welcome.

Hi Forum,

So as a newbie, I could love some facts/tips on how much different actions are influencing performance.

Every Frame:
I know it's okay to use, but maybe not all the time. Instead of checking every frame I could use "changed float", but I'm not sure if it's better performance wise?

Trigger event:
How often does it check? is it like everyframe or does it only check when the rigid body moves?

Other tips on what takes more performance and a alternative would be really cool.
