Hello, Jason here. So we made a few updates to Happy Wheels. Let me tell you about them using words. Here I go!
We've added new vocals to the Moped Couple and Lawnmower Man. I did the voice of Moped Guy and friends of ours did the vocals for Moped Girl and Lawnmower Man. Screaming as if you're being torn in half is pretty cathartic. I recommend it.
You can now quickly load levels or replays from the main menu by pressing "Load level/replay" and entering a valid URL. To find a URL, browse to that level. In pink you'll see the URL. Copy it and share it with friends and loved ones. Now you won't have to refresh the entire page to view a level someone sends you.
In the editor, you can now adjust the "center cutout" of circles to create donut-like shapes. This is helpful for wheels with spokes. However, this is only a visual change
. Cirlce shapes are still solid. That is a requirement of the physics engine.
The force character bug should now be fixed. We are aware of a couple other bugs that we're working on.
Also, you can now chat with other users by clicking here
. If the applet is full, you can join the IRC channel #happywheels on irc.rizon.net. A free IRC client can be downloaded at http://code.google.com/p/xchat-wdk/

ok so this is just an idea dont take it like crap.in happy wheels u should be able to play online at the same time,in races or who finishes the level first.we should also be able to add friends
By Luigi Is pro on Mar. 13th, 2012 11:52AM
I liked the friends idea, but the online idea is just idiotic. Imagine trying to play a map filled with random people and you can't see were you're going due to the fact that there are a lot of people trying to play one simple map. Now, wouldn't you get annoyed by that? Think about the idea before you say it.
By D J A Y on Mar. 13th, 2012 1:09PM
yo man...we busy learning how to make websites and that shit is hard!...i struggle with adding pics to my webpage(we do it from scratch)
how and we will eventually learn how to program shit so they move!
By Artist Smeargle on Mar. 13th, 2012 2:13PM
The friends idea is the best idea I've heard since.... Never! THAT IS SERIOUSLY THE ONLY GOOD IDEA I'VE HEARD.
By D J A Y on Mar. 13th, 2012 2:22PM
...i wonder if ill have anyfriends?!
By Luigi Is pro on Mar. 13th, 2012 2:34PM
Well, I knew it was a good idea, but suggestions like more characters or make this character like this from one user is not going to help at all. People don't think about the stuff that will help run the game smoother, or will improve our Happy Wheels usage without having to use much effort. It's idiotic how people always want new characters, to be honest they should really take off the last 2 rows of slots for characters so people can finally shut up about characters and we'll have something that's useful other than having more characters running around in the game.
By AtomicWaffles2000 on Mar. 13th, 2012 2:36PM
That's great, but could you see if in replays, could do something about switching cameras in the middle of a replay?
By D J A Y on Mar. 13th, 2012 2:39PM
...yeah i dnt really care about characters since i only use the 2nd and 3rd characters mostly.
It would be could if there was water,lava or acid but that'll fnck up the game like hell...
By Artist Smeargle on Mar. 13th, 2012 2:46PM
I use all the characters except Santa Clause. He's way to big for me to really play levels with.
Although, my favorites are Irresponsible Dad and Wheelchair Guy.
By Luigi Is pro on Mar. 13th, 2012 2:50PM
I only mainly use the first row of characters except moped couple since I dislike how they fall over too easy. All the "classic" characters are the ones that I really love playing throughout the maps. But my main one is Segway Man. We don't need new characters just to satisfy some kids who play Happy Wheels. We need some tools that will help level editor be easier than usual.
By D J A Y on Mar. 13th, 2012 3:06PM
...it would be cool if there was a health bar or a bar that indicates how far you are from finishing.
By MYMOM234 on Mar. 13th, 2012 3:42PM
YES. I hate moped couple, other new guys are cool, but the classics will always remain my favorites.
And DJAY u would have me as friend. OOOH i bet i would have lots of friends.
By Luigi Is pro on Mar. 13th, 2012 3:55PM
Well, the HW community has fallen to pieces. Have any of you realized that? All the good level editors left or hardly left a trace of themselves (as of they were quitting or not) and most of the noobs just show up and fuck the game up even more) I just don't know what to do anymore. The lack of originality has went through the roof, and Happy Wheels, just gets more boring every single day that passes by. It might be hard to decide if the good remaining part of the community might decide to stay and keep on playing Happy Wheels or whatnot. But it looks like all the good people are quitting, without a trace. :'(
By D J A Y on Mar. 13th, 2012 4:23PM
yeah gawd damn noobs but everyone will eventually stop playing one day.
By Artist Smeargle on Mar. 13th, 2012 4:31PM
Aren't you glad that there are people like me? :U
By MYMOM234 on Mar. 13th, 2012 6:31PM
I wil continue to paly happy wheels for awhile, until i run out of time to or i get bored with it. I dont think its boring now, just very unoriganal.
By josiah1212 on Mar. 13th, 2012 6:40PM
ok, for a new character you should do a lepercon flying on a pot of gold making a leftover rainbow mark like santa leaves a snow mark and srry for the wrong spelling
By antrumble on Mar. 13th, 2012 6:43PM
can someone make 1 more character ill stop asking
By Artist Smeargle on Mar. 13th, 2012 6:53PM
Tis the season to be noob-ish... Fa-lalala-a-lalala...
By ACHIEVERjunior on Mar. 13th, 2012 6:56PM
My god all of these suggestions are either from 3 year old's or retards
By MYMOM234 on Mar. 13th, 2012 7:27PM
who wants their name to be in my level? You can appear as graffti!
Currently i have JIMB, DJAY, JOF, and HEAVIE1 in my level.
By patsrule00 on Mar. 13th, 2012 8:08PM
Keep up all the updates Jim and Jason
I don't know why people are asking 4 new characters, just keep these simple updates going!!! ;)
By Artist Smeargle on Mar. 13th, 2012 8:24PM
It'd be nice to have my name (Artist Smear, for short) in your level, but hey, it's your choice really.
By Luigi Is pro on Mar. 13th, 2012 10:46PM
Well, I'm slightly starting to get a bit of an inspiration to keep me going on making levels. I just need to finish a few projects, that I have had for quite a while then I can finally rest. I will "retire" as people call it when their done making HW levels but I will be back one day to make it. If you are ready this it's just as a future notice, so I won't have to type it all when the time comes. So, how's everyone doing?
By colonel Ford on Mar. 13th, 2012 10:50PM
Artist smeargle, We are happy your here. We're just not happy that there's anyone else.
By Luigi Is pro on Mar. 13th, 2012 10:59PM
Indeed. There are some many people that just make this game set into a frustration. They beg, make shitty levels, complain, and just put a lot of unoriginal stuff into the game. But I really hope this community does improve cause I really want a good change for the Happy Wheels community. All the good users show up at this time. I'll be in xat.
By Artist Smeargle on Mar. 13th, 2012 11:05PM
Anywho, Luigi Is pro, I'm doing fine. I just now finished the main bits of my level, I'm just adding a bit of detail until Friday/Saturday.
By colonel Ford on Mar. 13th, 2012 11:25PM
I'm waiting for the time to release. From some help and some personal experience, I learned that releasing a level at the wrong time is bad. Its depressing, frustrating and just annoying when you wake up the next morning only to find you level at 200 views.
By Luigi Is pro on Mar. 13th, 2012 11:34PM
So, what time is it best to release a level? I need to know the perfect times to release one.
By colonel Ford on Mar. 13th, 2012 11:38PM
From about Friday until sunday. round that time. Saturday would be a good time.
By Luigi Is pro on Mar. 13th, 2012 11:41PM
Alright, thanks for giving me the heads up. Do you know what time will be best to release the level though. (My Time Zone is in the Central region)
By Artist Smeargle on Mar. 14th, 2012 12:01AM
I'd imagine on Saturday, the best time would be 1:00 PM - 6:00 PM Central. Of course, I don't really know, this is just a guess. :U
By D J A Y on Mar. 14th, 2012 12:02AM
saturdays apparently...oh i just woke up:)
i wanna make a detailed levels so bad!...but im lazy!
By Luigi Is pro on Mar. 14th, 2012 12:29AM
Alright, Saturday's it is then. Thank you guys for telling me this. Now I know when to make levels and what time it should be ready for perfection. So this is the night players of Happy Wheels huh?
By colonel Ford on Mar. 14th, 2012 01:06AM
Thats what I'm doing. Except 1 day before after you. Good luck.
By Luigi Is pro on Mar. 14th, 2012 01:13AM
Thank you but im working on revamping MetallicDoom's level not mine. His Happy Wheels Park level, to be more precise. I just want it to reach perfection though.
By Artist Smeargle on Mar. 14th, 2012 01:22AM
Well, if any of the "good" players would like the Beta of my level, feel free to ask, I might let you take a look at it. Good night! (Th-th-that's all folks!)
By Bert on Mar. 14th, 2012 02:25AM
When you say 'take a look at it', do you mean giving them the XML code? Because I'd be real careful on who you give it to, don't want noobs stealing it for themselves. Oh, and you seem to be the only person who joined in 2012 that isn't some annoying noob begging for characters. Feel proud!
I'd be awesomesauce to have my name be in graffiti on your level.
By colonel Ford on Mar. 14th, 2012 02:42AM
I enjoyed happy wheels park.
By jacobess on Mar. 14th, 2012 02:49AM
Jim pls do robot man :D
By Bert on Mar. 14th, 2012 03:10AM
jacobess, please shut the hell up. :D
By TheNguyenI on Mar. 14th, 2012 08:56AM
niice. :D i can't wait to play happy wheels!
By devil614 on Mar. 14th, 2012 09:13AM
Divine Intervention is mega hard, even on easy mode! Also 1 question, is there a specific reason why you can't/don't expand the number of shapes a level can contain in Happy Wheels?
By poke203 on Mar. 14th, 2012 09:58AM
hey chat wont work it really dose suck one someone triese too talkthae all write (this server is not working) i go on the next same thig next same thing IT SUCKS!
By theshywillraindeath on Mar. 14th, 2012 10:00AM
He expanded them once awhile back. It used to be one thousand art, and now it's two thousand, or... something like that. I will also note that I have been kicked out of the non- noob club. Boo- hoo, noodle soup.
By benxrules on Mar. 14th, 2012 10:59AM
I don't understand how anyone can reach the shape limit. If you want to make grass or something, use the polygon tool. Jim made the polygon tool for detailing purposes, it'd be a lot less laggy than if you made everything out of small shapes anyway. Polygon tool ftw!
By ACHIEVERjunior on Mar. 14th, 2012 12:07PM
I WANT MY NAME AS GRAFFITI! MAKE IT HAPPEN! >:U
