I updated with a harpoon gun last night. It took entirely too long to make, but I am happy with how it works. Don't go too nuts with it. I may add in an option that will make it a bit less accurate in predicting where to fire. I'd like to make a quick video of it, so if anyone happens to see a horribly gruesome or funny replay involving the harpoon gun, please link to it in the comments.
Besides that, I made it so the moped couple rotates slightly faster. It's not much, but just enough that it will be easier to flip yourself over again if you are upside down. I also added a "foreground" option to groups. This will allow you to make items that will appear over the player character. You can already see an example of it in Ironhead's level, Viking Revenge 3
After a couple weeks, I gave up on trying to find decent moped sounds and attempting to make something appropriate sounding with what I had. In order to get something correct, I may have to have my friend Jason record them on his actual moped.
Most of my recent time was spent less on this update and more on fixing the broken backend of the site. During mid-December it was at it's worst, but it should be much better now. I wanted to have t-shirts up and Santa in the game by Christmas, but there was too much other bullshit to deal with. I was going to go with cafepress, but I've heard the cheaper shirts can be low quality... and I now may have a connection with someone who could help me out.
Just so all youse guys know, I read everything and am not abandoning anyone. I will be hiring a friend or two to help me deal with shit. HAPPY NEW YEARS, and I won't wait a month before news posts again.

I know you probably won't do this, but maybe you can make it possible to play as a character in a Warthog from Halo?

uhhh! Jim I was designing Elderly Olympics 5, I saved it, later all my things are very transparent, everything!!! Can you fix this bug please? Plus when I try to overwrite my level when I add an addition to my level it says ok saving complete, so when I go back to add more ,the part I just saved didn't save(and I have to do it all over)!!! This is so frustrating because it was a huge chunk of my level =(. One more thing website is very buggy lately, if you read this please try to figure out what is causing this, thank you for even creating this awesome (you're epic!) game and adding more stuff to it =D I wish you the best of luck on fixing these bugs.

By shadow wolf boy on Feb. 3rd, 2011 9:56PM
I GOT A COMPLAINT!
THE HARPOONS DO NOT SEEM TO REACT
WHEN I AM FALLING DOWN FAST!!!
DONT BELEIVE ME?
TRY IT BY YOUR SELF!!
PUT THE HARPOONS FACING THE WALL IN A VERTICAL POSITION
THEN PUT YOUR CHARACTER ON TOP!! VERY HIGH
NEAR THE SKY!!! WHILE THE HARPOONS ARE LOW
THEN TRY IT >:(

By gman200107 on Feb. 27th, 2011 09:32AM
I THINK YOU SHUOLD POST NEW CHARACTERS LIKE A SKATEBOARD GUY OR A KID ON A SCOOTER AND A HOBO IN A SHOPPING CART WITH BOOSTERS LIKE THE WHEELCHAIR CHAIR GUY.ALSO,PERSONALLY I THINK THERE SHOULD BE A CATEGORY WITH GUNS BEACAUSE PEOPLE ALWAYS TRY TO MAKE GUNS.HERE ARE THE GUNS THAT SHOULD BE THERE:AK47,SHOTGUN,PISTOLS,MACHINE GUN,AND A KNIVE WOULD BE HELPFUL.IF YOU DO THIS IT WILL MAKE ME AND OTHER PLAYERS VERY HAPPY.PLUS MY USERNAME IS GMAN200107.:):):)
By batmanstick on Mar. 8th, 2011 3:28PM
idea for new characters:
hobo in a shoppingcart (thrusted by a laser something)
2 gays on a tandem
huge rolling eyeball
a robot on a robo car
