Glad you like it :D
[QUOTE=zero00;41529][B]I made some minor fixes to the game[/B]
-The Settings Windows was showing in the game, so it was blocking some of the buttons. I set it to Not Showing
-Updated the Title with "Dj Tech42 Flight Simulator 8.0 Beta"
-Set the throttle meter...thing (it looks this >----< ) emissive color to "No color". I didn't do the same for the rest of the HUD

Other than that, the game's [B]looks amazing[/B]. I love the internal saving :D You'll need to show how me you did that!

[B]Suggestions[/B]
Have you ever thought about adding:
-Having different profiles (different settings for different users)
-An arcade style high score board (3 letter initials and the like, similar to [URL="http://www.mobygames.com/game/ps2/gradius-v/screenshots/gameShotId,90760/"][B]this[/B][/URL])

Sorry, I haven't been on the forums as much! :D

[SIZE="3"]Download the changed version [/SIZE][URL="http://www.mediafire.com/file/acd5s69xhczvz5v/Flight%20Simulator%208.0%20Beta%20Windows.a2w"][B][SIZE="3"]here[/SIZE][/B][/URL]![/QUOTE]

Thanks! The title looks awesome! I will see if I can set up the saving that way.

Sorry for the long wait. I have been very busy with school.

-Map Restore (Loads map from previous game)
-Smooth menu transitions
-New menu music
-Saving is tweaked to be more efficient

The game looks great :D
I have a few suggestions though:

-Can you add a screen that lists all of the buttons and controls?
-When the game switches to another map, can you make the transition a little smoother, or hide it behind a brief "fade to black"
-Can you disable the plane's controls during the title screen? If I keep increasing throttle during the title screen, I can start the game with full throttle.
-Where did the brushed metal backgrounds for the difficulty buttons come from?

By the way, I set a new record for easy mode: 4 seconds! :D

[/QUOTE]

I wanted to make the text into buttons so it wouldn't be so awkward to click on the difficulties. I can change the background if the brushed metal doesn't look right.

That's a really good idea. I will do that.

I might disable the controls on the title screen, but I'm just worried it will slow down gameplay if I have a bunch of if statements on all the events.
When the map changes, it does fade but really fast. I was afraid people would think that the game was loading too slowly if I made the fade too long. I will extend the fade a little bit, but not too much.

Thanks for your interest in my game. :D You have a lot of really good ideas and it really improves my game. Thanks!

Sorry for the lack of updates. I have been testing some things out at school so far (like profiles and plane selection), but I will try to get a real update out soon.

I don't know. I haven't been on these forums for 2 years, so I haven't tested the game with the new versions of Alice. There might be some incompatibility problems. The tutorial should let you fly after 10 seconds while the captions tell you how to play.

[QUOTE=emmaharward789;54394]How does making the game have anything to do with how good your time was? If anything it would make you better right?[/QUOTE]

Why did you just repeat what somebody else said in this thread? :confused:

Dj Tech42 02-12-2020 03:30 AM

Dropbox links have been broken for years :( Really sorry about that. I had some issues with Dropbox later on. I have updated the 8.0 Beta 2 Mac and Linux link. I still need to find the other files. I have an 8.0 Beta 3 (??) for Windows, but not sure what I was doing with it at the time lol
