[Java] Pokémon Walking algorithm

UPDATE: v0.10.1 HOTFIX is released, addressing the following:

  • Level Editor was rendering too much. Fixed the issue by making it render first, rather than last. Cuts down CPU fan from spinning so loudly.

v0.10.0 is now released.

  • Fixed bug where the trigger data set in the level editor becomes corrupted with Eraser triggers placed in the wrong spot upon opening area maps.
  • Added Characters/NPCs support.
  • Added player <-> NPC collision detection and response.
  • Added player <-> NPC interactions.
  • Added Characters/NPC scripting support. You can now script dialogues with the NPCs, and control the player.
    • No NPC scripted movements yet.
  • Added Characters/NPCs auto-walking functionality.
  • Rewrote the storing/loading game data structure mechanism in the game engine and level editor.
  • Refactored a bunch of codes.
  • Fixed NPC tile grid misalignment issue caused by abnormal collision responses via player interaction.
  • Fixed NPC interactions causing soft-locking.
  • Fixed Bicycle key item not registering in the game.
  • Condensed editor data a bit for NPC, Obstacle, and Item data.
  • Fixed script editor crashing when opening an existing script file and not updating the text fields.
  • Changed "walking" to "game" for this and subsequent releases. It's now slowly turning into a game.

Is this going to be a full game now?
It's not ready to be a full game. There are no battle mechanics, and no story plot objectives. There are quite a lot mechanics that aren't implemented yet.

  • No one is chatting at the moment.

    News portal has been retired. Main page of site goes to Headline News forum now
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I am working on getting access to the old news portal under a different URL for those that would rather use that for news before we get a different news view.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Easily done
  • The Helper The Helper:
    https://www.thehelper.net/pages/news/ is a link to the old news portal - i will integrate it into the interface somewhere when i figure it out
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Need to try something
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Hopefully this won't cause problems.
  • Ghan Ghan:
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I have converted the Headline News forum to an Article type forum. It will now show the top 20 threads with more detail of each thread.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    See how we like that.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I do not see a way to go past the 1st page of posts on the forum though
  • The Helper The Helper:
    It is OK though for the main page to open up on the forum in the view it was before. As long as the portal has its own URL so it can be viewed that way I do want to try it as a regular forum view for a while
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Yeah I'm not sure what the deal is with the pagination.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    It SHOULD be there so I think it might just be an artifact of having an older style.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I switched it to a "Standard" article forum. This will show the thread list like normal, but the threads themselves will have the first post set up above the rest of the "comments"
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I don't really get that article forum but I think it is because I have never really seen it used on a multi post thread
  • Ghan Ghan:
    RpNation makes more use of it right now as an example: https://www.rpnation.com/news/

    What do you think Tom?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    I will have to get used to this.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    The latest news feed looks good
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I would like to see it again like Ghan had it the first time with pagination though - without the pagination that view will not work but with pagination it just might...
