Beta 52a has been released

  • Added Magma Block
    • this block is dangerous to walk on when lit, but perfectly safe when not
    • this tile is the only tile to have a lit and unlit state, as well as a combination of solid and harming collisions
  • 10/30/50 Coin
    • These coins give you more value than the normal coins. They are the perfect reward for some challenges
    • Unlike Super Mario Maker, there is no limit to how many you can place. Go crazy with them, if you’d like.
    • Compatible with Dirt Wall tiles

  • Now there are a total of 70 tiles in the editor (66 of them are unique to the other tiles), which makes WWC the game with the second most tiles in any game on Hopscotch (the first being TAOS, with 77 tiles). It even beats Spy Guy 96’s “New Game V7,” which has a total of 65 tiles in its inventory.

  • Redid some tile images so they appear less blurry (Thanks, @Spy_Guy_96)

    • I also redid the generic outlines for dotted-line blocks and t-blocks so they show up easier when playing in the Day/Alien Day Theme.

Beta 53a has been released

  • Added Darkness Theme to the editor - when enabled, it’ll limit your vision to a small area. It’s slightly faded on the editor so you can see your tiles when editing them, but in the game scene, it’s in full effect.

  • this also means you know can have up to 24 different theme styles (that includes a combination of different backgrounds with snowy and darkness themes). Previously, it was up to 12.

  • The share, upload, and save/load features have been updated to include the new darkness theme option (0=off, 1=on, just like the Snowy Theme)

  • 0s0 (bg 0, snowy off) is now 0s00 (bg 0, snowy off, dark off), and “s” (which previously stood for “snowy”) now stands for “special”, which may later be changed to “t” for “theme”

Special Thanks to @Spy_Guy_96 for all the help they’ve given me.

Whoops. Did I say “upload”? I meant to say “import”

I just updated my RGBA Pixel Engine. I was able to save 6 seconds (40 seconds vs 46 seconds) by using a trick where I skip a character in the string if it’s the exact same character as before.

There’s still room for improvement, but I might not be able to optimize it any further, unfortunately…

im aware that

but anyways, here’s a smooth pen/smooth drawing

Smooth drawing prototype by Tri-Angle

using bezier curves (a mathematical tool to get smooth curves)

that test is a sequel to sketchpad for creators which was mades years ago and is too laggy because i coded in a weird way

nice lol!

hmm, try manually decrease the sensibility threshold variable inside the code, and youll be able to see more clearly the trail width effect :))

in my draft i coded a variation of this project - instead of 100% being spring based smooth pen, i added a little flavour of springs in it which makes it even more smooth

now its time to think how to make the pen size adjustment more responsive - rn its entirely based on xy velocity

i changed how that works, and… it feels so smooth!

(thats not my signatures no need to take a pic and flex for getting an autograph from a triangle) /sarc /lh

and that formula was not working for bigger ink so i had to entirely redo it

i was aiming for the formula to be a bit more controllable (and not just a general random formula) but… ended up with this-

but what counts is that its working!! both big pens and small pens!!

leave it to tri to be making a game-changing smooth pen formula on new years eve

in all seriousness tho, this looks epic!
