polygons and vehicles and stuff
By someone on Jan. 30th, 2012 8:40PM
I should have written a few news posts since the last one, but I didn't. Since then a few things have been added to the game.
Polygon shapes have been available for a while now. There has been a lot of confusion with there usage so I will try to clarify things in a nice list:
- There is a big difference in functionality when changing the polygon tool from interactive and non-interactive. If you're telling me the polygon tool is broken, you probably didn't uncheck interactive when attempting to draw.
- Interactive polygons are limited in their shape. Shapes can only be convex polygons. This means no inner angle of any vertex can be over 180 degrees, and no edges can overlap each other. Shapes must also be drawn in a clockwise manner and have 10 vertices max. This is done in order to not break the physics of the game.
- Non-interactive shapes have nothing to do with physics, so they have no limitations other than the number of vertices (50). Click while holding shift to end the non-interactive shape early without filling it. You can use this to draw lines.
- Use ctrl+click to remove the last vertex you placed with the polygon tool.
- You cannot change the interactive value once a polygon shape is placed. This was an easier solution than checking if your random art piece obeyed the physics rules, which it probably did not. (also, slight laziness)
- Polygons can't be scaled. There were too many things to consider in order for me to allow it. However, there's no size restriction on them... they just have to fit on stage.
That's the end of the list.
There's now a much improved color selector in the editor. When you choose a certain color, a brightness and saturation spectrum is displayed. Left to right is saturation, and up and down determine brightness. The brightest, most saturated version of that hue will be always be at the top right. You can save and delete custom colors with the plus and minus buttons. Additionally, when dragging colors on the spectrum, you can drag off of the color selector and grab colors from anything in the background.
And finally, there is the new vehicle feature. When selecting a group containing that contains at least one interactive shape, you now have the option of converting that group into a controllable vehicle. Any character you eject can control this vehicle once they've grabbed onto it. I think I will start a new list:
- When first creating a vehicle, you'll notice all of the interactive shapes inside will glow blue. These shapes will act as the handles for the vehicle. If you'd only like for one particular shape (such as a steering wheel) to act as the handle, double click into the group and disable the handle property for the other shapes.
- Leaning is set to zero by default, so be sure to raise this if you'd like the user to be able to lean left and right on the vehicle.
- Pressing up and down while operating the vehicle will operate attached joints. So for example, a wheel is placed on stage (not inside the vehicle), and then attached to the vehicle with a joint. The wheel's top speed and direction are determined by the joint's properties, not the vehicle's.
- Joints attached to a vehicle can be set so they are not controlled by the vehicle.
- Jets and arrowguns that are jointed to the vehicle can be controlled. Set spacebar, shift, and ctrl abilities in the vehicle properties.
- If you'd like to limit the rotation of a jet attached to the vehicle, it's best to set the joint limits to 0 and 0. This will allow the jet to rotate, but it will stay in the correct angle relative to the vehicle.
- You can actually attach vehicles to each other with joints, and they will be controlled by each other. I haven't done anything too crazy with this, but I imagine you can do some very cool stuff. I might also make it so any joint connected to a vehicle indirectly (a joint connected to a shape that is joined to a vehicle elsewhere) could be controlled by the vehicle. With this you could make a whole chain of joints flex or retract upon keypresses. That would have to be cool... I think.
OK! I think that's the end of it. This may be my longest post. Vehicles have been cool, but I definitely think I have to add some better sounds in there. Perhaps adding a sound property to running joints, and possibly selectable impact sounds for shapes. In any case, I'm seeing a lot of very cool stuff being made with the new tools. On Saturday, the top 50 for the day were all pretty great. I don't know if I've ever seen that before. Thanks so much to everyone participating. A higher quality community will definitely inspire others and lead to even better submissions.
I'll probably make another post soon with a bunch of other crap I forgot.

Aye orton Jim isnt gonna read it, not trying to be mean but theres like so many other ppl on here posting yours is like another rock in the river..
By Allenwaffles on Feb. 6th, 2012 9:13PM
I honestly can't stand this fucking shit. We have Gooseman who corrects peoples spelling because you know, he has to be a fucking smartass 24/7. Now, I know you did nothing to me, but honestly, don't do that. :) Secondly, I apoligize what I said to "Spookyboy" or whatever the fuck his name is, but I'm not one of those people who just Go on peoples profiles just to see when they joined HW. 20 dolla rake... I know your trying to correct and straighten out retards (like me xD), but really... this is a HW comments area, not for someone to take control. (other than Jimbo)I don't care if you guys that see this do one of those "Quote" things which is a horrible way to orginize your words that nobody gives a shit about. Remember, this is totaljerkface.com. Which is a place for joy, and love, and joyness. WE MUST STOP ARGUING NOW! P.S I don't no why I wasted a minute of my life typing this paragragh...
P.S2, I like 20 dolla rake and i don't even know Gooseman or spookychild or whatever their names are. Therefore. I will start to eat my icecream. It's cherry and has yummy chocolate chips in it. bye.

fantastic. Awesome post.
By Luigi Is pro on Feb. 6th, 2012 9:47PM
Trotter thanks for sorting all the shit out and correcting the quarrels people had with each other the few previous posts, or else I was going to resolve the problem myself by correcting what those guys had on between them (Basically what they were arguing about). And son, nice account original name. :p
By MYMOM234 on Feb. 6th, 2012 9:54PM
K, i overreacted. Just dont be hatin on bert or me or people. Those noobs have to be taught the TJF way.
By Luigi Is pro on Feb. 6th, 2012 10:14PM
True but some people will always be a "Forever Noob" so you can't really help them. Also im not at home as you've noticed I hope so Mymom234 went to get some food, i'll be back and then work on my Prince Of Persia level afterwards.
By Gooseman on Feb. 6th, 2012 10:50PM
I do agree with you on one thing though, all these "kill JB" and "sword throwing" levels have to stop. I think disabling importing may have slowed it down, but that won't stop it for good. However, having pointless conversations about "the dark side" in the comments section won't do any good. Me on the other hand, well I just want Jim to bring importing back. They know the consequences of getting their work stolen so they can accept. I see there is quite a popular demand to bring it back.
[quote]Lol, all these little fags eh? The funniest shit is when they call you "mymom" so really,it sounds like their just being complete retards to their mom. Gooseman. I have 5 words for you. Who. The. Fuck. Are. You? I know you just made an account 10 minutes ago.(considering your lvls are 5 second pieces of shit) And.. spooky little boy, I swear to god your a little low-life kid who will be a virgin for the reat of your life. Now... Mymom234 handled you 2 pieces of shits very well... So... yeah. BITCHING_IS_COMPLETE! xD[/quote]

FOR JIM: I think it would be a good thing if the helmets on [i]irrisponible dad[/i] and [i]segway guy[/i] protected against arrows/blade weapons.
[u]thenks jim for an epic game[/u]

Here's a late response: Skrillex, Deadmau5, etc, are 'real music', if you don't like that, go back to singing your pathetic Justin Bieber crap nobody gives a shit about.
'Noob' is still a used insult to people, such as yourself.
And 15 is a lot different from 10 such as yourself, I'm more mature than you, so don't try to act like Mr. Tough-Guy and attempt to insult me.
You're only being a fail troll, I wasn't trolling them, I was teaching them a lesson on why they should stop begging and threatening. If you were getting abused by someone wouldn't you like if someone stuck up for you? You're the one flaming here now... So it'd be best if you GTFO instead.
By 700eror on Feb. 7th, 2012 05:20AM
wtf are you guys argueing about anyway?
By Bert on Feb. 7th, 2012 07:07AM
I have no idea, but we should all stop!
By MYMOM234 on Feb. 7th, 2012 07:59AM
Although he doesnt seem to know about the HW dilema, someone should tell him. OK I WILL.
Noobs have infested our favorite internet game (HW) with shitty, unoriganal, levels. Levels like "kil JB!!!!!" and "kil u boss" and "sign u name" and "nife trow". These levels are like the X parasite in Mertiod: Fuision (except you cant absorb them). They keep coming, and coming, and coming.
Except these ones clog the user levels browser, and they are horribly made. And boring, and stupid, ETC.
Many noobs come here, and ask for importable to be back. It wont, because people would continue making "sign u name" levels.
Thats some of it.
By Allenwaffles on Feb. 7th, 2012 08:12AM
Gooseman, Ik im a fucking badass. BEWARE
By i like cheezpuffs on Feb. 7th, 2012 08:55AM
i wish importable wasnt disabled, i really need to edit a few of my own, now i have to recreate tham ):. oh, U R AWESOME FOR EVERYTHING!
By D J A Y on Feb. 7th, 2012 08:56AM
What the fuck
By theshywillraindeath on Feb. 7th, 2012 09:44AM
I'm not even going to bother explaining that you don't have to recreate them.
By LordConure on Feb. 7th, 2012 09:55AM
This site has really De-railed, Jim removing the importable button is only prolonging it.
By D J A Y on Feb. 7th, 2012 10:27AM
Okay the site was down yesterday secondly my levels are wiped or hidden thirdly its time for djay's slanguage lesson let me first explain the "x" is made when you press your tongue against the roof of your mouth and you inhale it should make a kinda sucking noise or a kinda click also you use these when speaking english mostly here goes also they are funny:Dand ill add abit a text lingo
nxa or ntja-cool
xe or tje-uncool
xina,knock.jibb(jeep sharp ee sound)steal

By norbi10 on Feb. 7th, 2012 12:42PM
Jim Bonacci made a game
Called Happy Wheels,
Very happy and proud
About his game he feels.
It's very bloody and violent;
Full of gore and blood.
This game looks like it was made
By a heathen without a God.
Very popular the game was
And it still is.
Jim Bonacci acts
Like this game is his. ( And it is)
Adura, the strange guy
Helps the site Total Jerkface.
And he does a great job,
Adura and Bonacci, the Creator himself says.
Then later came an other guy,
Named Jason Schymick.
And he sure wants
A chocolate cake to lick.
But trolls infested the game,
Along with other noobs,
Filling all the forum
With fancy, soft boobs.
But then a tragedy happened,
The Forums were removed
Wait like 10 minutes,
And I'll be right back.
By D J A Y on Feb. 7th, 2012 1:13PM
your zali man!
By Jason Schymick on Feb. 7th, 2012 1:52PM
@norbi10 Wait, how am I the "other guy"? Jim has never even met Adura. I sit next to Jim and I work on the game itself.
Not that Adura isn't a great fellow. He is.
By lolcrackor345 on Feb. 7th, 2012 2:26PM

[quote]Here's a late response: Skrillex, Deadmau5, etc, are 'real music', if you don't like that, go back to singing your pathetic Justin Bieber crap nobody gives a shit about.[/quote]
I don't remember saying I listened to Justin Bieber, I would never listen to Justin Bieber.
[quote]Noob' is still a used insult to people, such as yourself.[/quote]
So by your logic, because someone is new at something they should be insulted.
[quote]And 15 is a lot different from 10 such as yourself,[/quote]
I'm a lot older than ten.
[quote] I'm more mature than you,[/quote]
Obviously not if you have to resort to juvenile insults such as "noob."
[quote]You're only being a fail troll, I wasn't trolling them[/quote]
Nor am I trolling you, I'm actually being serious right now.
I don't know why you had to bring this argument back up. Your other friend already apologized and it's was over and done with. If you truly wanted to stop arguing, than you wouldn't have said anything.
By MYMOM234 on Feb. 7th, 2012 3:49PM
Gooseman, we just tried to stop fighting with you, and now you are STILL flaming us. We both said "stop fighting" and i know i apologized.
I am going to say this: Im sorry. (AGAIN)
Please stop quoting weverything i say. Its annoying.
Do it again, i will seriously report you, as you actualy ARE purposely flaming now. 20 dolla, i dont care if mods dont care.
