But how many times can you doublejump in the air actually?

it currently works that if you have over 1000 points you can do a triple spin jump (as in three extra jumps in mid air)
it's kinda impossible to get through that level hitting nothing without 1000+ points, so I threw in 2000 points before I played  :P
(I tried with 0000 at first)


We have a much better, far more intuitive, and less compromising system planned though

and thanks :)

yep, me and a friend have been working on it for like.. 18 months now :D

we should have a new demo ready soon, there are still some bugs to work out
you can see in that video there are a couple anims that don't transition correctly, and a few places where landing on the slopes stutters
hopefully soon, I'll be sure to let you guys know :)

due my mind is just totally flipping shit :

Hey Na.. or Neigh... or NAY. I'm not sure as what the correct version of that is.. I've never had to spell it before. Man, I just saw SUPERBAD again and I think I found your stunt double. Just ask me again later when I get back and I'll point it out and you'll be all "oh snap.." and I'll be all "rmmmahmmm" cause I'll be eating a sandwich.

this dude is a really good friend of mine and apparently can't hear the T at the end of my name! (Nate!)

And now that i think about it, it's not really there!  one of two consonants in my name is basically a glottal stop.

The same mistake twice is a bad habit.
The same mistake three or more times is a motif.

Anyone here got a recommendation on a good art book? I'd like to have a good book for anatomy and volumes.
Helm said I'd find one to my liking, but I'm afraid I might buy a bad book since with my knowledge I think I'll fail at judging what books are good and which arent.

I wish i could! sadly i lack wifi  :n:

Take care of your electronics, man. That's terrible. :mean:

I do take care of my things, just the pen i think i started to think it was some normal wooden pencil and just threw it on the desk to put it down and such and i often dropped it (not on purpose) and it often rolled of the desk when i never put it in it's holder  :-\

It had lot's of use though i just wish i could of done more art with it  :yell:

downloaded a demo of Black and White 2 today and found it so much fun I actually purchased it used.  God it felt strange buying a game....

the most entertaining thing about it (and actually useful gameplay wise is the ability to pick up many objects of the same kind just by holding the mouse button.  Sure, you can build an army, plant a forest, force a migration in moments, but what i really enjoyed was this experiment:



.......throwing hundreds of enemy dead from the battlefield into their home town.  This had very little effect on the population (aside from a few people stopping to cry) but it was just so delightfully EVIL.
