holiday news post about information for you
By someone on Dec. 29th, 2011 10:18PM
I've been meaning to make a post about the Santa update. WHAT YOU ARE READING RIGHT NOW WILL BE THAT POST.
If you didn't notice, Santa Claus is now the eighth playable character in Happy Wheels. He's the first character to consist of 3 people. He also has no wheels. That's ok, I made this game and I will do whatever the hell I want! Understand? The next couple characters will probably be a bit simpler.
At this pace, all 25 slots will be filled in only 4 years! I hope flash still exists by then. I will try to go faster I guess.
I am still up in the air about what the I'd like to keep doing. The month of December was absurdly amazing in terms of traffic. Thanks to some very popular youtube channels, traffic has tripled from the previous high. Also, thanks very much to Adura, we've made some great backend optimizations, and the site can actually handle the traffic. All of that seems to clearly be telling me to continue working on the flash version of the game. I'll most likely end up dividing my time between this and continuing to learn c++/opengl (I think I've rambled on about this before, but got sidelined by Santa). I've got so many stupid, smaller, simpler ideas for other games I'd like to make. In any case, thanks so much to everyone for playing Happy Wheels this past year and allowing me to continue doing what I think I'm supposed to be doing.
By the way, 1.52 was just a few Santa bug fixes as well as error handling stuff Jason did that should eliminate blue loading screens.
The next thing I do in the game might be a simple drawing tool, or zombies that attack your character. The next thing I will do in real life is plan my dinner.
Happy New year in a few days.

By drayman on Dec. 30th, 2011 2:01PM
zombies would be a cool idea
By nayster22 on Dec. 30th, 2011 2:04PM
happy new year jim
By MYMOM234 on Dec. 30th, 2011 2:09PM
Where is forum?
By mrallwell on Dec. 30th, 2011 2:15PM
Thaink you Jim & Jason you never stop surprising us with this awesome game!
By S P A R T A on Dec. 30th, 2011 2:22PM
First, thele zombies. There are enough zombie levels already, many of which are stupid. This would make an insane amount of them. Plus, Jongen has spent hours on making all the chars zombies, so it would kinda stink for him. And second, the drawing tool. With the drawing tool, some artists would show up, and older levels would look horrible compared to newer ones. Then, people would turn it into an art forum, like having the title, AWESOME PIC OF A BIRD, or some other stuff. There's other things that would ruin some stuff too with these added, I'm just asking you guys to think what would happen before you add stuff, cause I don't want to see HW end up like an art forum.
By qatarkid on Dec. 30th, 2011 2:23PM
Howabout you make it so that the NPCs can attack your character?
By joshua12yrold on Dec. 30th, 2011 2:29PM
read my levels some of them could be a idea of how bad people are getting pissed off
By The Phish on Dec. 30th, 2011 2:35PM
Idea 4 character: Wheelbarrow man
A spanish guy pushing a wheelbarrow with a kid in it. FW:
By MYMOM234 on Dec. 30th, 2011 2:46PM
Jim doesnt take ideas. He does whatever he wants, and doesnt give about what you have to say.
By GrapesAndMilk on Dec. 30th, 2011 2:48PM
The argument about having a running/walking character is now finished, since the elves run and there are no wheels anyway.
By DuckTape on Dec. 30th, 2011 2:50PM
Yeah actual zombies in Happy Wheels!
I'm already looking forward to the next characters.
And by the way, I'm not sure if it's a bug or not:
1. When you press left and up and then space if you are Santa, you won't fly. I believe it's Achill3 who made a level about this.
2. I can't manage to get rid of my elves by pressing Shift. Is that a bug or am I doing something wrong?
By Killer Cheese on Dec. 30th, 2011 2:57PM
I agree with S P A R T A. I would say more, but most of what I would have said has already been said, so yeah...
By V I P on Dec. 30th, 2011 3:02PM
THAT SIMPLE DRAWING TOOL IS REALLY PERFECT IDEA !!
By MYMOM234 on Dec. 30th, 2011 3:14PM
I KNOW RIGHT!
By ACHIEVERjunior on Dec. 30th, 2011 3:15PM
I tri3d,that glitch do3s not work for m3,and you can only 3j3ct th3 3lv3s wh3n th3y ar3 d3ad
By DuckTape on Dec. 30th, 2011 3:17PM
Jim please PLEASE PLEASE IN THE LOVE OF GOD!
Please make an indicator to show that a level is copied. 90% of the levels today is copied!
Please make it so that it says "copied from [orginal user's name]".
We need to fight the cancer NOW! Do something about it!
By MYMOM234 on Dec. 30th, 2011 3:22PM
No, just make a sign function, that way there will be no more trolling around with "sign where u land" levels.
By Rizzi on Dec. 30th, 2011 3:37PM
you are right ionmaster but it didnt matter much :D
By DuckTape on Dec. 30th, 2011 3:40PM
Have you seen how many times Rope Swing and Weapon Throw levels are copied?
If you pay a little attention you shall see that 50% of the levels are shitty, copied levels. I can give some examples:
- The Weapon Throw level with like 6 katanas.
- The "Zombie Kill"-level.
- The Rope Swing with an axe to the end of the first rope.
- The blue rope swing level.
- The green rope swing level.
My point is: If there is ONE fucking level to fucking manage to get to the weekly top 50, it will return at least 20 fucking times, because it gets fucking copied by fucking ten year old boys who think they are special by doing that!
And why is that? Because there is nothing stopping them! I guess there are some clever users who have seen such a level before and rate it 0, but 90% of the players is strangely retarded enough to actually rate 5 such a level.
Is it so hard to make a level yourself?
If you could comment, like on YouTube, you could actually leave a reply, telling that FUCKING KID that he must get a FUCKING LIFE and stop copying FUCKING LEVELS MADE BY OTHER users.
What I want to say: "Sign fuctions" only help for "sign where you land" levels, and not for the copied levels. Hope you agree.
By colorfusion on Dec. 30th, 2011 3:44PM
New santa character is awesome, I think you should add a "Randomize" button to the level list so that the levels can get views and a chance to become popular if they don't happen to become popular in the few seconds of being on new levels list.
By ionmaster130 on Dec. 30th, 2011 3:47PM
@ARchieveror or should i say asslicker68k if that is you i was not calling jim a fag i was calling the dumbass who was like 100th comment dumbass!!!!
By DuckTape on Dec. 30th, 2011 3:49PM
In fact, I wouldn't mind if Jim got rid of the level copying level all together.
All the "If I have X views, I will make it importable", these levels never get credit or they die eventually.
It's almost a useless and a rather annoying feauture, and if it's not used well, then what you get is levels copied a 1000 times.
Is it so fucking hard to come up with a level where a jet flies you to the finish???
By D J A Y on Dec. 30th, 2011 3:49PM
there is a new way to power characters
so if you make a shopping cart character there can be a kid pushin and a kid ridin...hey i wanna download flash(for free)where can i get it
By Dogpup4 on Dec. 30th, 2011 3:54PM
Finally theres a picture by the URL :D I have this on my bookmark bar in Firefox and its nice to finally have an image to click instead of an empty box. People probably won't know what I'm on about though.
