I've been a bit absent so I just wanted to tell youse all what's up.
For the past couple weeks I've been spending most of my time working on a better physics based animation system. In Happy Wheels, you'll notice characters can only hold certain poses. More complicated animations such as walking, or picking yourself up, or climbing would be extremely difficult to do with box2d (the physics engine used by Happy Wheels) alone. With this additional system, assuming I figure it all out, it would be possible to have complex character animations that still interact with the physics world. It's been a pain in the ass, but I've made a lot of good progress.
Most likely, I would not be adding this system into Happy Wheels. Too much would have to change with the way the current characters are built. It's possible that, when finished, I might make a mini game to illustrate what's possible (was thinking a horrifically violent version of kung-fu). Further down the line, I might want to convert everything currently in Happy Wheels to this new system and possible make it a sequel. It's all speculation right now. It all depends on how things turn out, and possibly new things I discover.
Something that would be possible with the new system would be user contributed animations. Similar to how people submit levels in Happy Wheels, an animation editor would allow people to contribute character animations that could be applied to any character.
I'm excited about figuring this out, as it would allow me to do make some really retarded stuff. I'll still be making Happy Wheels characters and random things, but currently I'd like to make some headway with this new stuff while I remain motivated.
I think that's it for now.

fuck damn it...i entered the id=9989
By ACHIEVERjunior on Mar. 14th, 2012 3:27PM
What the fuck? I'm so fucking confused right now
By norbi10 on Mar. 14th, 2012 3:30PM
What the heck?
There are a lot of replies!
(I broke my neck)
Don't you kinda think of this guys?
I guess this page's ID was used before as a secret thread.
And it got very popular in most of user's head.
But a half of an hour ago Jim made a post with the same ID.
This is what the comments here may all about be.
Am I the only one who has 755 replies?
Because if not, that wouldn't be so nice....
By Quinnpon on Mar. 14th, 2012 3:32PM
This is probably going to end terribly. I swear if I see ONE level of a guy waving his hand (considering I understand this system right)I will probably shard bricks.
By D J A Y on Mar. 14th, 2012 3:45PM

By CAPSlock3R1 on Mar. 14th, 2012 6:24PM
The Kung Fu game seems like an awesome idea. You should persue it.
By Beerparty on Mar. 14th, 2012 6:31PM
I have 20
By u got problems on Mar. 14th, 2012 6:43PM
i think u should make it where when people make levels they can choose if its multiplayer or not so basicly im asking for multiplayer please
By undeadleader18 on Mar. 14th, 2012 6:48PM
u should start to make more characters because these ones are starting to get boring
By Artist Smeargle on Mar. 14th, 2012 6:51PM
@undeadleader18 Then you'll get bored of a "new one" 2 days after it's out.
By jdr50xx on Mar. 14th, 2012 6:54PM
great and everyone play my levels they should get featured
__+++___+++ PLAY MY LEVELS ALSO MY FREE THROW ONE__+++__
ALSO GOOD IDEA
By auzzyboi on Mar. 14th, 2012 6:56PM
This will be so sick! If you could make a sequel or a completely new mini-game please do! I'm sure I speak for everyone when I say that we would love to see what you can do with it!
Keep being awesome.

By freddykrueger201 on Mar. 14th, 2012 8:16PM
HEY JIM, MAKE A UBERHAXORNOVA CHARACTOR WITH A GUMBY SUIT OR A GHOST RIDER CHARACTOR WITH HIS MOTORCYCLE
By Klarisa on Mar. 14th, 2012 8:17PM
I personally love this game. The new blood system and vocals are excellent. I just love the pain, agony, and death of the characters. This is by far one of the most entertaining games ever. Love your work Jim B. Thanks for everything and keep up the great work.
By hamisfaty56 on Mar. 14th, 2012 8:47PM
if you can't do that then i think you should put it this way. when you press -> aroow you're character in happy wheels should stick hs legs out to not just his arms
By pigules on Mar. 14th, 2012 8:53PM
anybody notice the year
By Talidan on Mar. 14th, 2012 9:03PM
My concern is it would be too much like Ragdoll Kung-Fu, but more violent. Not really a concern, but would be nice to see something different.
And yeah, climbing is a bitch. I've managed to master it for short distances, but gets more difficult the higher I try. Would be cool to see something different for characters, though.
By firebeast56 on Mar. 14th, 2012 9:09PM
dude,keep up the awesome work.
By Mr cool 1 on Mar. 14th, 2012 9:20PM
I Am Making a new level. If You HAve ever heard of the game "[b]Cave Story[/b]",Then You Will Be Thinking (That Game is [i]WAY[/i] to Hard To make)

I Am Making The First Part........Do [u]You[/u] Think it will be good Thing to make ???
By benxrules on Mar. 14th, 2012 9:20PM
Sounds complicated, but you're good at that stuff Jimbo! Make us proud!
By Artist Smeargle on Mar. 14th, 2012 9:33PM
I'd say this was the first post ever made to the internet!
By Luigi Is pro on Mar. 14th, 2012 9:35PM
Indeed, and reading the miraculously excellent news post that he just recently gave us. That's by far the most interesting thing I've ever heard him say. Nice job indeed.
By MetallicDoom15 on Mar. 14th, 2012 9:48PM
well that was an interesting read there, i hope all goes well for you Jim, good luck.
By slim miney on Mar. 14th, 2012 9:49PM
A happy wheels 2, holy shit! That sound amazing.
By Kaoe The Khajiit on Mar. 14th, 2012 10:08PM
WOW jason didnt think you would listen when i talked about the kung fu game on the chat with you :D !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1111
By DJwheels on Mar. 14th, 2012 10:14PM
I think having a mini game of horrific violence incorporated with kung-fu style modifications would be and amazing contributionb to totaljerkface and would get great reviews. i love the ragdoll fighting games, i suggest not making a sequel to happy wheels for the popularity purposes. People would only play V.2, maybe have a physics setting that would contribute to the game and change the physic reality.
By texiton on Mar. 14th, 2012 10:49PM
I think this will be a good move since the reason you can't do most ideas is because of the physics engine. :)
