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.

We all have to wait... Be patient please, and do not panic. I think Jim and / or Jason are fixing this problem... At least you CAN play levels!
By LWPeterson on Apr. 20th, 2012 07:54AM
In v1.64 the poly tool was fixed and you can paste polygons on other levels and the level menu button is no longer in the game screen.

By Hezze on Apr. 20th, 2012 08:05AM
Did you actually read what I said a few comments above?!
By epiclady123 on Apr. 20th, 2012 08:10AM
Um, can you answer my question for me? Here it is: Why can't I make a level if I'm already logged in? I can't even rate levels, I can't put it to my favorites!!! I worked on a level really hard, and now this happens?!?! Do something!!
By vinny14 on Apr. 20th, 2012 08:35AM
Ihavfe so problems if login on happy wheels
By Bert on Apr. 20th, 2012 09:22AM
Oh my fucking god, [b]SHUT THE FUCK UP EVERYONE![/b]
Jim & Jason are aware of the problem, shut up and stop bitching, it won't help with anything, you're basically repeating what everyone is saying.
Understand? So stop posting about it, read before you post, it's such an easy rule in the rules of thread posting, are you people too fucking stupid?
By squiggle on Apr. 20th, 2012 09:43AM
Does anyone know why It says I'm Not Logged On even Though I am? Its bugging me alot :/ I've logged out and logged back in numerous times and it still says the same thing
By sprenkels on Apr. 20th, 2012 10:08AM
jim is making an update for the server
that,s all i know
By LWPeterson on Apr. 20th, 2012 10:24AM
Guys! At least you can play levels, post comments and send messages to people! U'm shure Jim and Jason are aware of this.
By Hezze on Apr. 20th, 2012 10:28AM
The problem is that they aren't even reading all these comments! Only about 20 minutes after you posted your comment another person just complains about the same goddamn problem.
Everybody complaining about the account problem :
Just read a few comments, dammit! It won't hurt....! And if you aren't reading this neither, then go f...
Just calm down. I'm talking about squiggle, vinny14, epiclady123, crankdathappywheel, lukhan123 and walterlim. BE PATIENT!
By ACHIEVERjunior on Apr. 20th, 2012 10:46AM
These guys are like a bunch of babies
By Bert on Apr. 20th, 2012 10:50AM
It is really annoying, they come onto here and then just rant away. I doubt they'd even bother coming to this page, they'd just stay on the first and comment!
They also think Jim is forced to do what they say, like he's some sort of slave, and have no respect for him.
You're one of the few 2012 joiners who has a brain, because you didn't come here and start ranting or begging for characters, if only every member was like that.
By dEnigma on Apr. 20th, 2012 10:53AM
Awesome, go for the kung fu, dude.
By chexmixrap45 on Apr. 20th, 2012 10:58AM
yeah noobs stop bitching your levels are no good anyways, thats what you diserve for spaming shit pogostickman levels!!
By Hezze on Apr. 20th, 2012 11:18AM
Thanks really much... I don't like making levels, since I'm playing the other user's levels (some of them are really fun and entertaining), and I don't think I'm capable of making such levels. Plus that I'm testing new things in the Level Editor, no need to export them. I just made this account to join you guys, who are really nice with other sociable people, and try to kinda stop these impatient people. Stopping them completely is quite impossible, I guess...
By Fenzer on Apr. 20th, 2012 11:18AM
By Harry Boner on Apr. 20th, 2012 11:36AM
nobody's griped about lack of menu popup after character death---helpful suggestion for total noobs until glitches are worked out: after you fail a level hit the Esc key to bring up the menu.
By rare kwiebus on Apr. 20th, 2012 12:32PM
Don't be lazy and fix it Jim/Jason! I haven't swallowed my pills today so hurry up or I'll become a cannibal and eat you! Lol just kidding, but plz fix the game, I'm addicted to happy wheels and I can't wait any longer
By Hezze on Apr. 20th, 2012 1:40PM
The account bug is fixed now. Was it that hard to wait a few hours?!
By LWPeterson on Apr. 20th, 2012 2:44PM
The account glitch is fixed so stop griping everyone.
By ACHIEVERjunior on Apr. 20th, 2012 4:09PM
Still can't play happy wheels,I need to wait like 1 more day to play,this shit is killing me
By awesomecream123 on Apr. 20th, 2012 5:05PM
yo they should make roller skate guy now that would be cool
By ACHIEVERjunior on Apr. 20th, 2012 5:08PM
FUCK YOU GRRRRRR WHY DO PEOPLE NEVER LISTEN
By colonel Ford on Apr. 20th, 2012 6:32PM
can't wait till the new forums. then the homepage won't be filled with countless comments half full of shit.
By jaws1186 on Apr. 20th, 2012 7:07PM

By MYMOM234 on Apr. 20th, 2012 9:05PM
Hello hezze. Welcome to th TJF world. WELCOME
But i dont recommend trying to argue with the 8 year olds. They are too stupid to realize that they can change comment pages, so they dont know about new comments.
They OBVIUOSLY think "DJwheels" comment about horrific violence has been the only comment for months. :P
If you want to argue with them, PM them. They somehow learned to send messages.
By Bert on Apr. 20th, 2012 9:09PM
Going to the comments should automatically take you to the latest page, that way noobs would realise there's such things as next pages. Heck I wouldn't be surprised if they went "HURR WEREZ MY COMMENT 4 SCATBORD KID!?" when they can't find their post on the first page.
By colonel Ford on Apr. 21st, 2012 02:30AM
Lol guys, Pm'ing them and them actaully reading it is a joke. They are to incapable of what the word 'messages' means. (probably not quite litteraly but i'm sure after reading a majority of the comments, you'd be quite convinced.) :(
Btw, I have 2 messages in my messages box. When it didn't load when i clicked on the link and it didn't load. so I went back on it a few days later and found out there was nothing there. Now there will always be 2 messages that aren't there haunting me until I stop going to this website.
