Early Dev / Re: The Veins of the Earth development feedback BETA 13
« on: September 13, 2017, 10:53:30 AM »
Is Veins of the Earth still alive? I've been playing it the last couple of days and it has a lot going for it, but it crashes constantly. I mean sometimes every keypress causes a flurry of errors. If it was more stable I could see myself sinking a lot of time into it.  :-[

T-Engine has been updated a couple of times since I last worked on the ToME version of Veins (in August 2016). This is a likely cause of the errors.

Since then, I've set to making Veins from scratch without the reliance on T-Engine.

Currently I'm going with Python + libtcod + bearlibterminal. I'm sorry but the T-Engine version won't be continued (but the code is still available for anyone who wishes to do so)

PS. Your post made my day - it's awesome to see that people still play my little hobby game.

PPS. The Python version is fairly barebones now and I have a day job so I have less time to devote to it.

The 1.0 version hangs on quit :/

State driven AI was something that was always on my 'maybe do sometime' list and I learned it from the Roguelike Intelligence series. I hope that this time I'll actually succeed :P

Idly wondering if it'd be possible to combine bearlibterminal with PyQt?

Can no longer create game-breaking paradoxes by putting chests into themselves.

:D :D

Hello Neo Ness, drop by - we just started a dev-along following a Python tutorial (Python is very easy to pick up for someone who's never programmed), one part a week!

Rolling along happily with BLT+Python.

One report:
The default tile alignment is “center”
(from the wiki page) doesn't seem to be true anymore, at least for the version I have via pip. I was having the tiles offset until I explicitly centered all of them.

Is there a way to get FPS when using Bearlib?

(I'm redoing Veins in Python as an exercise and Pygame performance sucks when partially transparent pictures are involved, such as isometric tiles).

Also is there a list of games using bearlib anywhere? So far I only know of unlichtwesen...

I'd given up on there being any further updates on Numenfall! I'll have to check this one out and see what's new.

You just echoed my feelings perfectly!

Aukustus, I've had the wantings to remake my Veins in Python, what did you use to compile the .exe? That was the part that utterly baffled me a couple months ago when I first attempted it...

Bug: on Firefox 52 (64-bit), the standard color version doesn't work, I have to switch to LCD.

Nitpick: 1) some cities are just one house, with no hospital. Given that getting to a town/city from the route can be fairly difficult (and beginner Pokes are often very hurt just from one combat), I think a hospital should be granted. (Alternately some sort of a rest mechanic).

2) there seems to be no saving capacity, if I leave the game I have to start anew.

I've been enjoying the game though! Even the old 7drl++ version! :D

I'd love to see and test the "updated version" you mentioned. The graphics come out fairly nice even though you said you just took them off Google Image search, somehow you managed to get a coherent style!

Takes looong to load. Given the size of the individual tiles on screen, the texture sizes definitely could stand to be toned down. Also the rotating tile in lower left corner might be a performance killer on weaker cards.

Apart from loading times I saw no performance issues in a short play, though.

I tried the bugfix build and I like the look of the UI, but the combos are a bit arbitrary indeed. At least the first level should make me use them intelligently, maybe with some tips showing 'hey you, you're about to use a defensive action' or 'combine this with another blow to get a combo!'. As the things stands, it's a pretty game with a great premise but boils down to bashing buttons hoping I get the right one for a combo.

I am seeing no performance problems, but to be frank this is a switchable graphics laptop where the drivers are shot to all hell so I'm never sure if I'm running off the dedicated card or the integrated Intel.
