Hello community!
I started making a game 2 or 3 days ago out of boredom.Im not sure what it will be about yet,but one thing is sure:you will fight paranormal creatures as ghosts and zombies.
I havent made much yet,infact i have very much things to work on.
The game now has:walking,jumping(i will probably change the jumping),bullet count,reloading,and enemys that follow you.
If you find some kind of a glitch,please let me know and if you have ideas for the game please share them with me.
Controls:
W - Fowards
S - Backwards
A and D - Turn left and right
Mouse - Shoot

I like it. You need to make an ammo count first of all. Make the gun turn back faster(during fireing). Make dummys for all the ghosts so when you click them, they go back to there start positions and keep moving toward you. That is a good way to make it a challenge. You can make them move faster and faster and have timer that counts how long you survived. It would be better if you could not move forward and better for that game mode. This is kinda complicated so I need your idea on what kind of game you want it to be.

looks good so far, (and it looks like you have followed along with the tutorials I made) you have a good start, now just use some ideas of you own to fully make it your own game, jedi had some pretty good ideas for it. and if you leave in having the ability to move around, make some kind of environment to walk around, like a full blown cemetery or haunted mansion

Thank you for the ideas.And jedi is actually right.I should make this game without movement.What i will do instead,i will make different areas(i have some ideas - graveyard,haunted house)and when you clear off all the enemies in one area the camera moves itself to the next one.Sort of like a cutscene but in first person.
Also i think of replacing the revolver with a desert eagle.Revolver is a slow reloading weapon and the animation of reloading will probably take ages for me to make...

But i have some problems...Please help me if you know how to.
1.Why cant i use another gun?I downloaded a gun from a thread but it was a .a2w file,not .a2c...
2.When i add a bigger objects like the gate or a building,the game starts lagging and dosent run smooth.Is it from my PC?

1. the gun is an object inside of a world, so just load that file up as a world, then the gun should be there, right click it and save object (into a folder you can find, I usually save it into the Alice2.2>required>gallery>desired folder to put it in.)then now you can use that weapon.

2. it is more than likely your PC is slow, plus Alice takes a lot for a computer to run, and usually causes lag after a certain amount of size(try stream lining codes and if a code doesn't need to be used during a certain part of a game, have it so it only runs during that part of the game

Yeah i figured that out.Thanks anyway!Now the (first) weapon is a deagle,which has 7 bullets.Now working on:
Ammo - all the ammo in your gun,for example,a deagle with 7/35 ammo is a dealge which you can reload 5 more times and then the ammo runs out.I am working on doing the math stuff(so it decreases the ammo with 7 every time you reload) and on the second weapon which will be avalable only if you have engouh hi-score points to buy it(which i am working on too)

I got some bad news...I got an error! Please someone help me!!!I dont want to quit Alice until i save my world,i made many changes!


An error has occurred while attempting to save your world.
This is a critical situation that needs to be dealt with immediately.

NOTE: Please check for a directory co-located with
your world named "Backups of <YourWorldNameHere>" which
should contain previously saved versions of your world.

We at the Alice Team apologize for any work you have lost

Please accept our sincerest apologies. The Alice Team.

I have had this problems a few times, all you can do is just exit out of alice and hope your backups aren't from to far ago

Guess what...
This project isnt going to be continued,because i cant open the file.It's corrupt.I know i can download it from the thread but i dont want to,i made so much new stuff...

It wasnt going so great anyway.I had too much methods (I think every ghost had 2 or 3 methods,that 10 total enemies with 30 methods)which probably caused the corrput.
You can edit the world if you want,but i dont think i will work on it more.

I am probably gonna make a new thread about a new game i will make.Its probably going to be a spaceship game or a racing game.

check the folder that you have the game saved to(more than likely the required folder inside of the alice2.2 folder) go there, then it should say backups of "blah blah" whatever your game is called, go to that folder, then open the latest backup

Or, if the backups don't work(which happens alot)...My thread..lol;)

"Firetrucking" backups dont work.I am raging hard...:mad:

Thanks for the post,Jedi.But i know even if i fix it it's going to happen again.It happened on the backups too.
I guess the "firetrucking" world just had too many methods...
It is my fault though.Instead doing a "chase" method on EVERY ONE of the ghosts i could have done it in one method.And since there were 10 ghosts (i was going to add zombies too) that means there were 10 methods just to get the ghosts to chase you,another 10 for the fading of the ghosts(when you click them) I had 2 or 3 methods that i just left without anything inside.Instead of renaming them and using them,i just made a new method,and another one...
Dont get me started on the methods of the player itself...

But...
I aint quittin' !
I am remaking the whole engine of the game,made much better and im sure it will run much more smooth.

I dont want to make this thread too big,so THIS is the post of all the updates and the actual game.If i post any other threads,they probably will be responses.

Edit:Started this all over again.The new "engine" of the game is working great!

-Changed light and athmosphere to make it look more creepy looking.
-Made a flashlight.Press F to turn it on.
-Gun and shooting.
-Health (But currently nothing to hurt you.)
