possibly long rambling
By someone on Sep. 30th, 2011 6:06PM
I haven't made a news post in quite some time. Sorry about that. I'll ramble on about the update 2 weeks ago, as well as today's update, and about site plans.
The arrow gun and chains were added to the game 2 weeks ago. The arrow gun works like the harpoon, but is less deadly. Characters will only die if it shoots them in the center of the skull. Unlike the harpoon gun, the arrow gun doesn't have to be in a fixed position and can also be joined and grouped with other items. As an example, you could attach the arrow gun to some shitty looking, moving jeep full of fat women (I'm upset I haven't seen this or anything too complicated yet). The chain was meant to make it easier for people to make long rope like objects. They can break when over stressed. In case you've not seen it, here
is a video illustrating some of this.
Today's update is not quite as exciting, but it should be very helpful in making complex levels. Groups can now be edited in place after they are created. You'll no longer have to break them apart and rebuild them. Double-click on them to enter an editing mode, and double-click again on the background to exit. You can also change the depth of items now with ctrl + up or ctrl + down. Previously you'd have to delete and re-paste items to get them into the correct depth order.
Jason also added in tokens (coins?), which will act as another method of completing levels other than the finish line. Place however many tokens you want, and when they are all collected, the level is won. This will be useful if you'd like the player to follow a specific path.
Over the next few weeks the site will be setup to use vbulletin, so that will mean a real forum and a non broken framework. All user accounts will be transferred over to that. The site should look mostly the same, but will run less like dogshit. Once that new system is set up, it will be a lot easier to add fun user related stuff to the backend of the site.
It was my birthday 3 days ago. So very old now. Thank you very much to the creepily knowledgeable few who wished me a Happy Birthday.
I'd really like to make some new games, so I'll be dividing my time up between that and Happy Wheels. Maybe I'll be making a character next.
I can't think of anything else, so that's it for now.

you should make yourselve as a character with a pie in your hands
By cats9112 on Oct. 4th, 2011 11:19AM
I think the next character should be a guy that doesn't rely on wheels and uses his hands to climb and feet to walk.
He should also have stronger limbs for the weight he has to carry.I know it kinda ruins the name but it could adapt to other vehicles
like to transfer vehicles so for example if you wanted the segway guy on the lawnmower you could do that by choosing what vehicle he rides.(lol long sentence)
I know i have said a lot here and it is a lot to work to do this but it is worth it. (Or at least the vehicle transfer idea.)

It's called Happy [b][u]WHEELS[/u][/b], implying that characters should be on a vehicle with [b][u]WHEELS[/u][/b].
Jim will not make this. End of.

By cyprox on Oct. 4th, 2011 2:09PM
If you restart a level with tokens in it the actual amount of tokens does not go up but the max amount of token indicator says that they do?
By ACHIEVERjunior on Oct. 4th, 2011 3:00PM

I have been play happy wheels for months and have just joined
By vampire lord on Oct. 4th, 2011 10:06PM
if you make a new character, I think it should be a spartan in a chariot. the space bar action would be a trident/spear. the control and shift would be to duck and stand. thank you for those who liked it.
P.S. Happy Birthday Jim!!!
By colonel Ford on Oct. 4th, 2011 10:48PM
That would be fucking awsome. to bad you'd have to have a horse. Why??? WHY COULDN'T MODERN SOCIETY INVENT THE "MOVE ITSELF" CHARIOT!?
