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.

My Happywheels isn't loading. It's staying as a blue screen.
By Artist Smeargle on Mar. 24th, 2012 8:55PM
Use another browser and check the game every day on the browser it is not working on. Example: If you use Firefox and it won't work, use Google Chrome, or Internet Explorer, etc. to play it until it does work (Check everyday).
By MYMOM234 on Mar. 24th, 2012 10:34PM
you guys trying to talk to noobs FAIL. No offense at all, but its better just to not waste your time explaining things to them. They are so stupid that they will NEVER return to see the replies. never.
BTW if beerparty2 is around, tell him to resend his PM to me. Damn thing is broke, so i cant read it.
Blacks...Asains.... WTF y'all? WORST ones right there.

By Luigi Is pro on Mar. 25th, 2012 12:22AM
O.o Nice secret that you found. But if we do get a vespa, there's problably going to be some creative levels. Like maybe on a highway who knows. And how's everyone doing? Vespa.. (hmm).... It sure comes to mind once you said that.
By JoseDiaz on Mar. 25th, 2012 01:14AM

"sure, i may be twelve but it is really starting to piss me off"
"i may be twelve"
...No wonder they're being rated low. (Time to check the actual level...)
By D J A Y on Mar. 25th, 2012 05:19AM
i wanna see the next hazard!
By Bert on Mar. 25th, 2012 06:01AM
3? Who would rate 3? Your levels are so bad, I rated them all 0, and encourage everyone else to do the same.
You're too young for the site, beg for 5 star ratings, have shit grammar, and make crappy instant death levels.
You kid (not sir), fail at life.
By D J A Y on Mar. 25th, 2012 06:25AM
By Bert on Mar. 25th, 2012 07:10AM
I rate most levels 0 anyway.
By D J A Y on Mar. 25th, 2012 07:14AM
...hmmm...pudding!...jim you like pudding?
By MYMOM234 on Mar. 25th, 2012 09:55AM
same, 0 is my favorite rating nowadays.
By totaljerkfacerocks on Mar. 25th, 2012 09:56AM
i had a great idea how about trying to make the characters walk,run,jump,skip,and do a flip on their own.
By D J A Y on Mar. 25th, 2012 10:33AM
Because its happy wheels fool...not happy feet,wings,skipper,flipper!!!
