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/

PEDOBEAR NEEDS YOUR HELP
THERE ARE NO MORE KIDS TO RAPE IN PEDOLAND
YOU, IRRESPONSIBLE DAD, MUST SACRAFICE TIMMY FOR PEDOBEAR!
~This is a preview for a level I am releasing Friday, lol
By Mr cool 1 on Mar. 7th, 2012 8:02PM
New Idea !!!
Make a Pre-made House that you can put in !!!
By Artist Smeargle on Mar. 7th, 2012 8:21PM
I do believe you can still use "Buildings," yes? Or make one box of any color, put a few little Blue boxes on it, put a triangle on top and presto? OR use the polygon tool? Non-Interactive? Gives you 50 sides before it runs out which is plenty for details? My point is, a "house" object is just about as pointless as another Father character. Even Pedobear would agree!

Why is it everytime I greet somebody, everyone else starts greeting him?
By Artist Smeargle on Mar. 7th, 2012 9:39PM
Because of reasons. And Sven. Sven Hoek gets ALL the comments.
By MYMOM234 on Mar. 7th, 2012 9:47PM
Because of the fact that we all want to welcome a non-noob person. 1 less noob than we had before.
By Artist Smeargle on Mar. 7th, 2012 9:53PM
Yay, I'm not classified as a "n00b!" :D
...Although most of my levels rank from Hard to nearly impossible, all of the obstacles ARE possible. (I just like making hard levels.)
By Luigi Is pro on Mar. 7th, 2012 10:48PM
True, even though you haven't been here for a long time you act pretty respectful and don't try to complain about a flaw in the new updates like everyone who comes through here does. But man, im starting to lose inspiration in making levels yet again, it's cause there's to many shitty levels being made and all creativity has been lost. It used to be fine like 4 weeks ago, but now since it's mostly, sword throw, rope swing, torture room (or saw) or even obstacle courses now (cause "Mean Person") got his featured and other people think there's will get featured as well. MetallicDoom, I will attempt to get through your level so you can do with whatever you please to do with it, then I'll finish my Prince Of Persia one. Cause seeing multiple shitty levels being published is just pathetic and it's making me lose inspiration and new things to create.
By Artist Smeargle on Mar. 7th, 2012 11:26PM
@Luigi is Pro
Very true. Although, I think Obstacle Courses have *some* hope. I mean, there are a few original ones or variations (My Kaizo Happy Wheels series, for example). But yeah. I think the only reason I'd make a rope swing is if it had more original graphics (Example: Real rope, not blue blocks) or one that uses something other than bottles, TV's, etc. (As I stated earlier about my idea for a rope.) for a rope. But even then I have no idea. Now, for Sword Throws, it's over. they're dead and bait for bad ratings, although noobs rate 5 Stars because they told them too. And SAW, the original one was good, but the copies were mostly crap on a stick. Fortunately, there are people like you, general Ford and others whom are trying to get creativity back. Anywho, good luck everybody on their levels. I too am trying to get another level out. (Yes, I spew them out quickly, but I at least TRY to get quality out of them, and I am taking advantage of the 1-a-day system where I publish a level, start working on one.)
Sorry for the long post.
By happywheelsmaster65 on Mar. 7th, 2012 11:33PM
hay Jim i gots an idea put the chat back in.....BUT! enbed it on to the game screen and make a bot moderater to bann ppl who spam. that would be better then opening up a differant window and an option to hide the chat box.!
By Artist Smeargle on Mar. 7th, 2012 11:50PM
Look of disapproval. à² __à² (Mainly because... 1. He's never gonna (let) *listen to* you (down). 2. Do you think programming is as easy as 1 2 3? No. Try making your own bloody, hilarious and good game. and 3. WHY THE GAME SCREEN!? WHHHYYYYY!?)
By colonel Ford on Mar. 8th, 2012 12:37AM
I agree. When the importing stopped, good levels started coming in until about now. Then it started going to 'moderate' again. I too am also loosing some inspiration like others. Seriously, the only level Thats inspiring is the "Backyard wrestling". Just so much time put into that.
And while Shitty levels are being made, I'm in the editor making half a level then not knowing what to do next due to the lack of inspiration. Then I Just ditch that level and start making another. I mean, it is very hard to make a level that's completely original or without seeing something. Its just like saying you have to make something while except you have only been inside a huge metal box for your whole life. You can't or haven't seen anything. And Thats sort of happening now.
But right now, Theres still something inside and I'm able to continue to make a few levels.
By Artist Smeargle on Mar. 8th, 2012 12:54AM
Indeedy. The only think that keeps me motivated are 1. THE RAAAAGE and 2. my Kaizo series. I mean really. Usually only when I'm bored to I make a "Santa's Hat" or "The Boring Minigame" like level. If I think it turned out decent in editor, I put a bit more art (If needed or is not a "test" level for the public) and if it's still good, I release it. Although, I will admit that a level showing the Lawnmower Man wheel glitch inspired me for "Lawnmower in the Sky."
Anywho. I have to go for the night. I have to get to sleep to finish an essay tomorrow. Ta-ta. P.S. [img]http://i1.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/original/000/241/598/2ed.jpg[/img] Can't wait for the next hater...

Apparently, theres going to be some solar flare tonight...
By S P A R T A on Mar. 8th, 2012 06:24AM
I like this Artist Smeargle guy.... he knows his stuff.
By Luigi Is pro on Mar. 8th, 2012 08:45AM
Yes, colonel ford. I think it's a sign about "2012" but it could be false who knows they just said it's gonna hit the earth or it could miss. If it does, damn that's really going to suck for that part of the world.
By krasantjes on Mar. 8th, 2012 09:36AM
HEEY YOU!!! IM PISSED
i cant upload levels cus i can only do one per 24 hours make it at least 12 hours or make
it back to the way it used to be!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
By ACHIEVERjunior on Mar. 8th, 2012 10:15AM
Why? so you can spam your useless levels to get stars? well no dice!
By theshywillraindeath on Mar. 8th, 2012 10:24AM
By MetallicDoom15 on Mar. 8th, 2012 11:03AM
umm... i dont know what to say about all of this.
By D J A Y on Mar. 8th, 2012 1:45PM
holy fuck my pc is out dated as fuck i can barely read what you say(i usually use the laptop but i had to finish my homework so i needed the family pc)
@luigi dont believe in 2012 one it would be stupid cause austalia or newzealand would reach 21/12/2012 first and usa last so by the time its 21 in usa it'll be 22nd in new zealand but what do i know im just 14!
By Artist Smeargle on Mar. 8th, 2012 2:09PM
krasantjes is a Jar. Said jar was pissed in. That is why he's "pissed." Also, he's about to be thrown at somebody.
Anywho, I'm glad that you are comfortable with me on here, although I haven't been with the Happy Wheels community for the entire time.
...Now to see what kind of crap krasantjes (What a weird name) spews out of his jarsehole...
By Mr cool 1 on Mar. 8th, 2012 4:37PM
I Think a WHOLE CRAZY BIG DAY is NOT worth to try to upload a new level !!!
Why not make it 3 hours or something like that???
Oh about bad levels, can you make it so that any level with 100 plays or lower are deleted after a week ? Then you would have less bad level. You know what i mean right ?
I Also think you should have a zoom out option,i know people like making a one place view so then make the area you see biger !
Also, do you think you could make it so you can change the color of the main player ? It would be very cool. You could put it in the top right part of the character select option !
VERY cool hazard idea ! Make [b]heat seeking missile [/b] !!! You Could use the same "follow" Option like the homing mine, but make it a missile + add more speed ! Like that idea ?
[i]Over all, this is a few of all the ideas i can think of in just a few mins [/i]
By shadowarmykiller on Mar. 8th, 2012 4:48PM
i don't like the new vocals. turn it off!
By Artist Smeargle on Mar. 8th, 2012 4:58PM
1. AHAHAHA SUCH A GOOD- no. I personally don't give a flying flock about the "one per 24 hour" rule...
2. ...Why? Just why? How about any level that has 1 star or less by the end of the week (If actually voted) gets deleted? Eh? It'd be more fair to actually good levels that don't get played a lot. You might say "Oh, well he or she can still vote on his or her own level..." Well, if Jim were to, WERE TO, add this feature, he'd likely disable voting on own levels, as it IS possible to rate your own levels (I just started a Happy Wheels disease...)...
3. No. Just no. "Oh hey, it's a good level, let's look at the mechanics! AND the background! That way he has to waste either art or objects so we don't see the background!" If you want that, just suggest a "camera," where it automatically zooms to where you place the "zone." It'd make a lot more sense at the very least, but it is still a bad idea.
4. ...No. I have no problem with the colors and neither should you. Plus, it's even more pointless when I don't see a million comments/levels complaining about Irresponsible Dad's blue shirt. (Not like I'd support it THEN...)
5. No. It's pointless. We already have a heat seeking explosive, why do we need another. That's like if I asked for another father with his son or another guy on a segway.
As you can guess, I don't support ANY of these ideas except, maybe, MAAAYYYBE the "If less than 1.5 stars" feature, MAYYYYBE. But of course, Jim, Jason and the others are busy with their lives, most likely, so I can't expect that just by asking, can I?
By Mr cool 1 on Mar. 8th, 2012 5:14PM
I [b]AM[/b] Going to make a [b]heat seeking missile [/b] .
Then i could show what i mean and Jim Could make it better made !
By Artist Smeargle on Mar. 8th, 2012 5:16PM
You have fun with that.
As for Shadow, if you don't like the voices, either go to options and hit "mute sound" or turn off your actual volume.
By ACHIEVERjunior on Mar. 8th, 2012 5:19PM
Jim is not going to make a heat seeking missile no matter how shitty your missile is
By Mr cool 1 on Mar. 8th, 2012 5:53PM

BEEF JERKEY BITCH!
By MYMOM234 on Mar. 8th, 2012 7:29PM
you noobsa sking for shit like heat seeking missiles are fags. Who wants a goddamned, "HEET SEEK MISSILE RUN PROS ONLY RATE 5" al over the place? We already have homing mines!
Yet that bitch will make a "idea 4 jimbo" level, and it will get highest rating for the day, and i will go rate it 0, but it wont matter because so many noobs have already listened to, RATE 5 SO JIM CAN SEE
Stupid noobs. Im not doin what Udie told us to. This is unacceptable.
Sorry for the long post. Level is almost done.

I don't belive in this "2012" thing But I just have to say that days don't actually effect anything except for what the day is.
By HOSTETLERC123 on Mar. 8th, 2012 10:14PM
COULD YOU PLEASE ADD A FEATURE WHERE U CAN SAVE REPLAYS TO YOUTUBE OR FACEBOOK THANK YOU
By Artist Smeargle on Mar. 8th, 2012 10:20PM
It's called a downloadable Screen Recorder. FRAPS, Camstudio, etc. USE THEM. Either way, you'd need a YouTube account.
By benxrules on Mar. 8th, 2012 10:41PM
Damn IO errors, always not lettin' me fix my levels.
By Artist Smeargle on Mar. 8th, 2012 10:43PM
To "fix" the Blue Screen at the beginning, use a different browser. And remember to check the game on your main browser every day.
By dragger on Mar. 8th, 2012 11:31PM
