After a week of hell, some good changes have been made to the backend of the site. The level browser should be much faster, and hopefully the site won't die during peak hours. We'll see today if it runs well (fridays are busiest). If so, I should be able to work on the game again and not the goddamn database. Still, there are more optimizations to be made. In any case, the site has been having problems for more than a month... so if it works out I will be quite happy.
Apparently the addition of npcs or the harpoon gun caused a replay glitch. So I have to fix that next... it might ruin some previous replays. Sorry about that.
After that... everyone seems to like driving through glass, so I will make a legitimate breakable glass shape. I should have more breakable items. That should be fast. I'd also like to eventually make a terrain tool, which would be really helpful. However, the outrage for new characters is reaching obnoxious levels, so I will work on those instead.
I made a shirt design for the game here
. Colors had to be limited to 6. I already asked on the facebook page, but what shirt would you choose? The overwhelming favorite there was the first one. I personally like the 5th. I imagine some of you very macho men will not tolerate the use of pink on your clothing. If all works out well, a shirt will go on sale on Newgrounds soon.

This sounds good(First comment ^_^)

instead of making a gun you shuald make real ones for the non playing characters in a level.good idea right?
By chris1234688 on Mar. 4th, 2011 11:33AM

By Ipwnjerkfaces on Mar. 4th, 2011 11:37AM
Jim you got the coolest ideas ever, breakable glass, Non playable characters, etc.
Your ideas make the game more fun
Continue on nice ideas and i hope the site stays well :D
By tgf on Mar. 4th, 2011 11:40AM
I think jim should make a skateboarding character with rockets like the wheelchair guy or a jumping ability
By ROBERTO ZOMBIE on Mar. 4th, 2011 12:11PM

By dmp823 on Mar. 4th, 2011 12:23PM
jim instead of making a charchter you should continue on with your origanal ideas cause these people dont know what they are talkin about
By Farge on Mar. 4th, 2011 1:41PM
Breakable glass would be fun (especially if it was dangerous) and a terrain tool would be awesome. People who want new characters can wait. Besides, its not like adding any would actually stop them from wanting more anyway.
By walkdogg on Mar. 4th, 2011 1:45PM
The site's working great today. I was having trouble getting anything to come up all day yesterday. Happy Wheels is an incredibly fun game. I laugh out loud every time the irresponsible dad says "Dammit" when his kid falls off and gets pulverized.
By BadBoyMcCoy on Mar. 4th, 2011 1:49PM
Fuck the new characters man, people don't know what they want, new items add so much more to the gameplay, also some kind of favoriting system would be cool, so you could favourite levels you like and go back and play them!

By pope on Mar. 4th, 2011 4:12PM

But pinks my fav colour
so fifth is tight also.
By Kennyboy97 on Mar. 4th, 2011 4:24PM
I should choose nr 5 either. But make a shirt with the old man in wheal chair:D
By MitchF on Mar. 4th, 2011 4:24PM
jim i play your game alot. i think it is a great game and more people knew about it. It is probably the funnest computer game out there.... any way i wanted to spit some ideas at you. SO first, people are wanting new characters but if you give a character to them like all the rest they wont be satisfied. Instead why dont you make a skateboarder or a man jogging? Second, i think you should more 'hazards' to the game. Like a grendae that goes off after five seconds or a pirahna or something, they wouldnt be too hard to make would they? any way love the game, love the site, love just about everything you do. good luck man
By cheez man on Mar. 4th, 2011 4:30PM
your game is FUCKING EPIC!!!!!
By Lord Cavalier on Mar. 4th, 2011 4:34PM
This is the ONLY GAME I PLAY. o_O
By Altair1 on Mar. 4th, 2011 5:01PM
This is still the best game there is online! Just sayin'!
By mrpurple on Mar. 4th, 2011 5:35PM
what is the new character?
By caligula on Mar. 4th, 2011 5:48PM
Jim, i also be liking the fifth shirt. the word happy needs to be in pink, otherwise its just not happy wheels
By Bert on Mar. 4th, 2011 6:01PM
Thanks for updating again, I reckon you need to work on those other things rather then making a character, but, it's up to you. People just like to rush you by saying "MOAR CARAKTER" or something along the lines of that, I still love this game, and when the shirts come out hopefully I will be able to get one.
By JASONANDMACK on Mar. 4th, 2011 6:02PM
Thank you Jim, I really appreciate your efforts, and love the site.
By AGinger on Mar. 4th, 2011 6:50PM
Here is an idea: You should make the characters walk so if u get off your vehicle or other device and u can walk instead and u can also jump and grab the ropes and swing. And also if u can make the non-playable people walk. Hope u like my idea :P
By LifeBetweenNaps on Mar. 4th, 2011 6:58PM
Excellent work, man (: Really hope it works out for you
By False_Firebird on Mar. 4th, 2011 7:02PM
Awesome shirt ideas Jim.
Breakable glass will be kick ass.
By hulk300 on Mar. 4th, 2011 7:23PM
By Armydillo on Mar. 4th, 2011 7:56PM

By Tommyo3000 on Mar. 4th, 2011 8:22PM
breakable glass awesome! xD u rlly are torturing me tho every time i see a new update i think there might be a new character but im sure that one ur making of urself will be cool!
By rot in hell on Mar. 4th, 2011 10:05PM

By Extremeguy117 on Mar. 5th, 2011 12:47AM

By rewary123 on Mar. 5th, 2011 02:32AM

By root1703 on Mar. 5th, 2011 02:42AM
make more shirt designs NOW!!!!!!!!![img]happy whells[/img]
By Zack673 on Mar. 5th, 2011 04:00AM
You could make 2 characters and a hazard. Characters: Skateboard guy and roller skates guy. Hazard: Cannon: It's like harpoon launcher, but it fires very heavy cannon ball what explodes on impact, but it has shorter range and it can angle only to +90 and it's able to fall like a land mine.
By ShamSlam on Mar. 5th, 2011 04:21AM

By mabie12 on Mar. 5th, 2011 12:33PM
ya you shouuld add some charcters when you have time
By Fenix Master117 on Mar. 5th, 2011 1:31PM
the site is MUCH better now, thanks Jim!
By BAJESUS on Mar. 5th, 2011 3:09PM
you have a great game, and one of the funnests too. but like most people say, you have so many slots for charcters, maybe you should make a guy in a hamsterball or a kid in a goat cart because that would be cool. but you are right how people like objects to brack, like i made this office lvl and i ran out of blocks because i had to put so many in computers so thay would exsplode. also a grate amount of people build traps like grinders or elivaters the brack of at the bottom, again both in the office lvl, so try to make a hazerd like a grinder or somthing like a wall that pops up after you hit a presher point or pad, so people (for example) wont to make a area 51 map so they wont the doors to close. or maybe you could make a brackable bridge. to shorten it up you can do alot of things, just give the people what they wont.
