If All Goes Even Halfway Well, Weapons on Wheels Will Be Completed This Weekend

8comments

Completed, not necessarily released, though…

But still, that’s a good thing, no?

Once it’s done the next thing on my list is to get a sponsor, then the game will be released.  How long that will take I couldn’t tell you.

Anyway, let’s get on to some news.

Weapons on Wheels Levels Completed

Yep, that was a big milestone in the process of making the game.  The levels each took at least an hour each to make.  In total there are 12, so, let’s see.  Hmm…  So it took at least 12 hours of work just to make the levels.  LOL MATH.

Making them was only half the battle too, once they were made (in Photoshop) I still had to “import” them into the game.  (Create the walls, the “dirt”, the checkpoints, etc, etc… in Flash.)  It really was a monotonous and long process.

New Site Design

In case you’re hard of seeing, I put up a new design on the site.  I was pretty happy when I found this theme.  Usually when I see a nice theme there’s usually a price tag on it.  The header and background image were all me though (NO WAY RALPH, REALLY?!).

PS-Ever since I updated the ShadowBox plugin for WordPress, the crap doesn’t work anymore, as is usually the case whenever you update a plugin, which is why I tend to never do it.  So excuse any bugs in viewing .SWF’s or images.

Flash CS5

I want it.  Same with Photoshop CS5.  I think they’re available for purchase as of 2 days ago, but you can’t actually get them for a month or so.  I think, could be wrong about this.  Either way, I want them both.  If I get a decent sponsorship for this game I’ll gladly invest the money into getting them (at the education discount, of course ;)).

Apple

Can suck a bag of dicks.

Steve Jobs

Can choke on a bag of dicks.

Why all the hate for Apple all of a sudden?  Because of this shit Jobs pulled just a day before the CS5 Suite became available saying that that they will not allow apps made with Flash CS5’s new Flash-to-iPhone export feature into their app store.

It’s one thing that they disallow apps made in Flash (or any other platform other than what Apple specifies), but to do it a day before Flash CS5 is ready for purchase, that’s just a real scumbag move.  The Flash-to-iPhone export feature was one of the most-hyped-about features in all of the Adobe CS5 Suite and Apple just basically shoved a giant middle finger right up Adobe’s ass.

Anyway, that’s all I’ve got to say about all of that.  I’ll have an update once the game is completed.  Hopefully some time this weekend.

    So really, how would you suck a bag of dicks? Do you have to take each one out and suck it? Does it have to cum?

    Anyway, the Apple thing is justified, but I do agree it was kind of bad on their part that they did it so late. Frankly, Flash isn’t very secure, an has a lot of problems. The only reason anyone use CS is because Adobe monopolizes the industry. Since Apple, by definition, sells premium products, they don’t want something like Flash to deal with, and they certainly don’t want it in their App Store. Also I must say, I might’ve been inspired to make an App if they hadn’t done this.

    Anyway, congratulations on the theme. Any chance I can bug test it like I did with some of your WP themes? HEH HEH??????

    Awesome, I’d go for something like Armor Games.com to sponsor you, they seam good and their into’s are cool.

    That sucks major balls about adobe and apple. It would have been heaps cool to be able to make an app in flash, even I could have made a basic one at the least. But I guess they’re doing it because any tom, dick and harry can get their hands on flash and make a malicious application..

    Anywho, good luck finding a sponsor man!

    @Paul – Depends if you’re on MSN when I’m getting Rid/Eternal to bug test. YOU’RE NEVER AROUND ANYMORE.

    @Sean – Yeah, ArmorGames is definitely on top of my list. I’d really like to get a NewGrounds sponsorship, being that I sorta feel a connection with that site (being that it’s part of what got me started in Flash so many years ago), but, we’ll see.

    Love the new theme bro.

  5. Ralph announces: April 16, 2010 at 6:21 pm

    Wish I could say I made it… but… >_>

    Yes I made it.

    *Gasp* :O Plagiarism! I’m telling on you! Lol

    I like how your crappy background color hides the text saying that N. Design made this theme.
