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.

By Bert on Mar. 26th, 2012 03:40AM
Looks nice, although it could use with some shadowing, to give it that extra detail.
By deadgear on Mar. 26th, 2012 03:49AM

you think you might want to add new characters
By MadNinja on Mar. 26th, 2012 08:13AM
By theshywillraindeath on Mar. 26th, 2012 08:40AM
Yes he wants to add but that will take some time. Bert, did you zero- bomb me yet?
By Bert on Mar. 26th, 2012 08:43AM
No, not yet, but I doubt I will.
By Luigi Is pro on Mar. 26th, 2012 09:46AM
Man, that is awkward of you theshydeath, since you actually want Bert to 0 bomb your levels. But hey it's up to you if he wants you to be his personal 0 bomber for you, lol. But today I got no work so I'll be located in the xat chat. I'll be working on a level and I will be there just AFK until people arrive, so yea. And how's everyone doing?

Thinking about releasing a demo of my latest creation, to see what people think of it.
By MYMOM234 on Mar. 26th, 2012 6:26PM
New item: paddle platform, was released in v1.62. I am seriously the FIRST to notice. COOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL

in v 1.62, i noticed a new character. COOOOL!
By ihatencs on Mar. 26th, 2012 6:55PM
um im not sure if its a glitch but theres an option to play as:" pogostick man " but i cant play as him ( in levels that are spacific to him, you cant play as him. and levels were you can play as any character he cant be found) i am just asking if this character is glitched.that is all
By Artist Smeargle on Mar. 26th, 2012 7:05PM
