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.

Hey ever thought of making Happy Wheels for ipods??? I'm sure alot of people who plays Happy Wheels would buy it almost instantly! Cause me and my friends been waiting for it to come out for the ipod for a while now.

By KoopaEater on Mar. 15th, 2012 4:41PM
I love all the hard work you are doing--new engine sounds great. If you can get it working, I'll love ya even more than I do now, if possible.
Ignore complaints about not adding enough, and keep on pushing on what you want. It's your game, not theirs.
By MYMOM234 on Mar. 15th, 2012 4:43PM
gawsh you noobs, jim will never reply to you! if your gonna thank him, go to the IRC or PM him!!!!
By kurtissok2 on Mar. 15th, 2012 5:19PM
so whats the update?
By bamboy3 on Mar. 15th, 2012 5:39PM
FUCK THIS!IT ONLY HAS TWO GAMES T_T
By RyanLeroy on Mar. 15th, 2012 5:45PM
It would be difficult to implicate some sort of QWOP-esque system for running, say HJ for the equivalent of QW, and KL for the same of OP. This would make me much happier with the game, as there would also be some badass QWOP-like levels involving vehicles and shit. It would keep the similar stuff to what it has now, and also add some platformer element into the game. And also, please don't add jumping to the feet if you use this idea - that would be too far and allow users to change the game up completely.

I think what you should do, and which would be pretty awesome is have a new character with the new physics, and see what kind of response it gets. If it gets a horrific response, drop the character and create a minigame. if it gets a good response, then you should make a sequel. i dont think making an entire sequel with no knowledge of how people will react is a good idea.
By sunshine7 on Mar. 15th, 2012 7:34PM
Yay we are gonna get new characters!!! :)
By daltonr17 on Mar. 15th, 2012 7:36PM

By Jlord748 on Mar. 15th, 2012 8:09PM
not to be giving stress on the updates but if u want im telling U IF U WANT to make a new character like a go cart guy or US army humvee guy with mounted machine gun ect. im just asking but u dont really need to make these pain in the ass characters but thanks for your time to waste 30 sec or less of life to read this lol.
By Luigi Is pro on Mar. 15th, 2012 8:13PM
People just keep begging? And for what most of the stuff they say is very likely to never happen at all. They should just drop the act of Jim/Jason, acknowledging their post only just because they think they are "famous". What a fucking shame.
By Nibroc117 on Mar. 15th, 2012 8:22PM
HAPPY WHELLS2!!!!!!!!! AWESOME
By Wafflebombs333 on Mar. 15th, 2012 8:43PM
I Created a game and i clicked "Save new game" But it dident work.
By thedarkdevil2012 on Mar. 15th, 2012 8:46PM
hey jim can you add little boy on a trycicle and maybe a dirtbiker, skateboarder, or a guy on a scooter on happy wheels: JIM IF YOU READ THIS PLZ ATLEAST PUT LITTLE BOY ON TRYSICLE thx
By Luigi Is pro on Mar. 15th, 2012 8:57PM
^Why are you even attempting to beg? First you mispell words, then you think your amazing since you think you can reach out to jim since you put everything that you demanded in all caps. Then in the ending you expect that character to appear? Im truly sorry but really, who do you think you are, a fucking shame that you think you are the emperor of this game, and you didn't even create shit. Really if you want a new character, make an NPC in the Level Editor if you can't too damn bad.
By Artist Smeargle on Mar. 15th, 2012 9:03PM
That sums up at least 50% of this community, at LEAST.
By farmerjon420 on Mar. 15th, 2012 10:26PM
good. get to it then. make this better and you will have better levels.
By ionicnaga on Mar. 15th, 2012 11:07PM
What about Santa's Elves? What about them? They're walking...-_-
By Artist Smeargle on Mar. 16th, 2012 01:41AM
He's goddawmn Santa Clause, he can do whatever he wants. He can even defy the name of the game!
By colonel Ford on Mar. 16th, 2012 02:52AM
There starting to get smart now.
By LittleJ on Mar. 16th, 2012 03:12AM
You should make another smaller, more useful character like the Segway Guy, Irrisponsible dad and the old guy on the wheelchair. Santa's cool, but I can't really use him for an average level. What about something like a quad bike? Thanks
By ty12321 on Mar. 16th, 2012 03:35AM
hmm whats novas happy wheels account called :) thx
By ACHIEVERjunior on Mar. 16th, 2012 07:48AM
Nova has no happy wheels account
By benxrules on Mar. 16th, 2012 07:53AM
For those of you with character suggestions, keep in mind that the vehicle someone drives cannot have a roof.
By D J A Y on Mar. 16th, 2012 08:30AM
@benxrules yes thank you some people are too stupid to think like that...asking for cadillacs and shit
Man drop the walking guys thats dumb unless jim makes a game called jump and duck...jump mines and duck arrows...but eat this sammich
By theshywillraindeath on Mar. 16th, 2012 09:39AM
Nova has an account, because if you search in Happy Wheels under authers "UberHaxorNova", it will come up, but say he doesn't have any level, because he doesn't make them, he only rates and saves replays... I think. If he had any level I could get his profile link, but he doesn't have any, so you will just have to do like I said. :(
By D J A Y on Mar. 16th, 2012 09:44AM
Peanuts you forgot about the peanuts^
By Luigi Is pro on Mar. 16th, 2012 10:55AM
Well, he's only famous because he made levels about other games, then he decided to play Happy Wheels (Which was a long time back) and then his fans loved it and made levels for him, and he actually played them. Until they got a bit to spammed of levels that said. (NOVA PLAY THIS PLZ) and then the levels got out of control, like the JB, WWE, Saw levels were back then.
By mrfunkyfucker on Mar. 16th, 2012 11:01AM
i like what i am hearing, but if you are going to add this to happy wheels, please make an option were you can switch it on and off. ok thanks
By Luigi Is pro on Mar. 16th, 2012 11:02AM

Just copied and pasted, because really? People aren't listening very good.

Wait which came first the toilet or the toilet paper?
By Mykester on Mar. 16th, 2012 11:53AM
you guys were supposed to start moderating the shitty "jet fall" and "sword throw" levels.
By junkersapple on Mar. 16th, 2012 12:41PM
U know what would be great? MULTIPLAYER!!! Just think off trying to smash each other or trying to stop ur opponent from reaching the goal ... Questions?
By bugmenot on Mar. 16th, 2012 12:49PM
Mine says 147 Replies WTF -_- wow messed up
By Bert on Mar. 16th, 2012 1:04PM
If you could get it into your thick head of yours, you'd realise 99.99% of noobs, just like you, have begged for multiplayer. You know why it won't be added anytime soon? Because the servers won't be able to handle all those people online.
You also clog up the site with shit grammar, and, just like all noobs, you think you're superior, leave your shitty suggestion, and never come back to this news post again.
So obviously there's no point in this post, as you won't ever read it, but I want other idiots like yourself to realise.
By Luigi Is pro on Mar. 16th, 2012 1:08PM
Indeed, same thing I try to tell them Bert, but they are different people that come in and beg for the same thing. I wonder if this plague will continue for quite a while. I really hope it doesn't.
By Bert on Mar. 16th, 2012 1:22PM
I doubt it will stop, the plague will keep spreading, as more and more people play Happy Wheels.
I reckon in the new forums, there should be specific locations for certain users, such as, new members (0 - 2 months perhaps) will have their own 'noob' section, where only they can be, this would help stop them plaguing good threads from regular users.
In the meantime, we have to keep working hard to fight this plague!
By Luigi Is pro on Mar. 16th, 2012 1:25PM
Or we could just make levels. Bert go here.
By happywheelsmaster65 on Mar. 16th, 2012 1:27PM
junkersapple get it in 2 yo head that your idea will not work you pothetic noob
you make your own flash game and see how hard Jim works.
By D J A Y on Mar. 16th, 2012 2:13PM
And while you are at it give a hobo 100 dollars
