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.

It was still loading. Click on browse levels for all the levels.
By Hezze on May. 13th, 2012 10:50AM
Damn, I did the same thing as Peterson with the level. Yeah, I know, it's my fault... :(

I know a new character for you N00BZ out there!
He is: JERK OFF!
He moves by sliding on his jizz from watching Adventure Time, he can EASILY be destroyed, just like his emotions.
His dick, however, will not be visible. Because... well, what dick does he have?
OH! He can also have a chariot carried by BLOW UP DOLLS OF THEIR MOM AND DAD!
Jesus FUCKING CHRIST, PEOPLE!
Just shut the FUCK UP about characters! Lemme geuss, Pogo Challenge Levels FINALLY getting boring for you fuckheads?
By ACHIEVERjunior on May. 13th, 2012 1:08PM
That was one of the worst character suggestions I ever read, shame on you for stooping so low
By lightninboy on May. 13th, 2012 1:10PM
O.O no posts for 3 months=he dead
By Foggy Red Lights on May. 13th, 2012 1:24PM
Props to J3RAN1M0 for his pretty great first level.
By LWPeterson on May. 13th, 2012 2:11PM
The next character will be a "tuk-tuk character". If you go to the happy wheels facebook. (don't ask me what that is).
By The Painkiller on May. 13th, 2012 4:57PM
I assume that was sarcasm, ACHIEVER.
If not, it was a fucking JOKE!
I'm mocking people who constantly demand new Characters whether it is right after one was just released or not.

By Foggy Red Lights on May. 13th, 2012 6:49PM
My old account was called dragonsarebig, but don't search it. They're all horrible.
By ACHIEVERjunior on May. 13th, 2012 6:52PM
Jason's old account was called VeganThunder XD he hasn't made any levels on it though
By LWPeterson on May. 13th, 2012 7:45PM
I never had an old account. This is my first one!
By akgd on May. 13th, 2012 8:21PM
By LWPeterson on May. 13th, 2012 9:01PM
@ D J A Y,
I typed in "DJay" in the search and there were still no levels! Hahahahahahahahaha!
By Foggy Red Lights on May. 13th, 2012 9:02PM
You've been here for six months; I've been here for about 14 months, and you have more levels than me. Fuck logic.
By MYMOM234 on May. 13th, 2012 9:18PM
DJAY had some levels, somebody (assumedly adura?) deleted them. We get it.
A tuk-tuk will most likelt NOT be the next character, but it will eventualy become one. READ TWITTER YOU WHORES
My old account is dooolie. Yes, 3 o's. I made it to troll. I lost the password. meh.
By chexmixrap45 on May. 13th, 2012 9:28PM
FECK!! still a few more days till im unbanned on the wiki.....ugh! , and hey mymomoo :L (im water)i ditched my old account and made a new one!!!!
and im sick i have a sore throwt sorry for poor grammar.
By derekc3 on May. 13th, 2012 9:30PM
hmmm it is true that adding a new physics engine could cause problems... and you would probably have to remodel the whole game in order to work around that. mabey in the meantime we can work on a new character or something to make the game even more fun... how about a flying guy... i know that you can already fly with the wheelchair guy (if you know how to use him well enough), but what about a glider guy, or a plain guy?
By MYMOM234 on May. 13th, 2012 9:32PM
water, y u banned?
By chexmixrap45 on May. 13th, 2012 9:53PM
Wikia caught me, also i have to go to bed in a few minutes.

derekc3 has Down-Syndrome... Just sayin'.

By Sithis on May. 14th, 2012 09:57AM

By ACHIEVERjunior on May. 14th, 2012 10:13AM
Your grammar is dead, Jim is on holiday in thailand which he deserves! have some fucking respect, the only thing making the game boring is fucktards like you
By L E G E N D on May. 14th, 2012 10:35AM
How can you guys come here everyday to chat..?
If you just used some kind of a chatbox, spam'd be reduced by half...
By D J A Y on May. 14th, 2012 11:34AM
Because we can
By ACHIEVERjunior on May. 14th, 2012 12:23PM
There's a chat, just people can't join unless Jim or Jason are on because, ironically, people were spamming
By D J A Y on May. 14th, 2012 12:34PM
...and because adura is an asshole!
By Hezze on May. 14th, 2012 12:39PM
Adura? Asshole? Well, I don't really think so. Adura wouldn't ban anybody without a good reason. You must've done something quite bad.
By ACHIEVERjunior on May. 14th, 2012 12:46PM
Wonder how Jim's getting on in Thairand
By D J A Y on May. 14th, 2012 1:04PM
@hezze...ask achiever what he did!
...jims goes on holiday for weeks!...thats bogus!
By Hezze on May. 14th, 2012 2:02PM
Achiever, what did you do?
By chexmixrap45 on May. 14th, 2012 2:23PM
anyone heard Jim and Jason are discussing about puting a vehicle cam into happy wheels?
Jason said about it on twitter.
By ACHIEVERjunior on May. 14th, 2012 2:27PM
I don't know, what DID I do?
By Hezze on May. 14th, 2012 2:50PM
D J A Y told me that you did / didn't do something wrong on this chat. And that's why Adura banned you or something. I'm kinda confused right now.
Yeah, Jason said that the vehicle cam is a good idea and he will discuss it with Jim. It would be kinda useful if you wanna make funny replays.
By S P A R T A on May. 14th, 2012 2:58PM
"Adura? Asshole? Well, I don't really think so. Adura wouldn't ban anybody without a good reason. You must've done something quite bad." Hezze, lol, Adura is ridiculous. I got banned for simply saying "Xat", which is the other HW chat (xat.com/tjftoday). This happened like 5 times, and it kept causing problems because all the guys from the Xat chat kept getting banned. I think that's a big part of why the IRC chat failed.
By LWPeterson on May. 14th, 2012 3:00PM
I have made about 1,000 replays. More than [i]foggy red lights.[/i]
By Hezze on May. 14th, 2012 3:20PM
Peterson, I don't think the number of replays actually changes anything. You can have 100,000,000 replays, (and all of those are based on a Knife Throw, or Justin Bieber level, where you just throw some blades over some NPCs ore run over kids) and have rubbish levels, and you can also have a few replays that are actually cool / funny / lucky, those replays deserve to be saved. I don't say you shouldn't have lots of replays, I just say that the number of replays does NOT matter. This is only my opinion, you can do whatever the hell you want, it's your account...
By MYMOM234 on May. 14th, 2012 3:45PM
Lwpeterson, why does anyone care? Its probly just spam anyways.
The reason the chat failed is because it was invaded by 8 year olds. And because Adura banned anyone who said the word "xat", just because he didnt like it or sumthin.
And, adura changed the a's to e's!!!!!!!!!!!!
yeah.... go play my latest level, and rate good whule ur at it. Some noob ragequit and rated it 2 stars as soon as it was released.
By LWPeterson on May. 14th, 2012 3:56PM
Some of my replays have gotten over 200 views. One is for when I completed [i]"The legacy of Quezal"[/i] Have you beat that level? Yeah. I didn't think so. Also I beat rouge commander in the [b]very fastest time![/b] You need to uncheck only list accurate replays if you have a PC. Also I did something funny for backyard wrestling witch got 200 views. Also a few more.
By D J A Y on May. 14th, 2012 4:16PM
@hezze i meant ask achiever what adura did to him
By ACHIEVERjunior on May. 14th, 2012 4:59PM
Oh yea that! he changed it so every e I type turns to an a, and the smart person I am, I started using 3's!
By D J A Y on May. 14th, 2012 6:27PM
And he added the word "nigga" after every word i typed...
By GabrielDaGameManiac on May. 14th, 2012 6:30PM
That sounds like a great idea! Ive seen the way happy wheels has improved, and the way people can build by now and having better physics would cause improvements all over. Looking forward =D
