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.

Indeed. He would be rich as hell, but if only that were true though. So how's everyone doing, and what levels are you guys working on (like how much progress your making on them, and how long are they due before they are published)? Well, let's keep on Happy Wheeling..

Well, I've been working on the 'Pimp-Mobile' for a while, I'm making it into a level, but it is a pretty good looking and detailed car!
Nice rich purple with bright reflections, big 3D $ sign rims, large spoiler reading 'Pimp-Mobile', little Timmy in the back, and plenty of other stuff.

Can we get a drunk Spring Breaker as a character?
By Artist Smeargle on Mar. 17th, 2012 2:37PM
...I think there's a glitch with the Level editor. I've been editing and TWICE now, I've been editing and it and the editor turns gray and I'm unable to do anything.
By WilliamMinesGold on Mar. 17th, 2012 2:37PM
You should make a Nova character as a thank you to Nova for making this game so famous.
By ACHIEVERjunior on Mar. 17th, 2012 2:49PM
Smeargle...*cough&..NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOB! double clicking a grouped object will allow you to edit each part of the grouped object,double clicking the background will get you back to normal editor
By bramtrol on Mar. 17th, 2012 2:54PM
William Nova didnt do anything to improve this game, do you have any idea how many 'please Nova read this' levels there are?

By Artist Smeargle on Mar. 17th, 2012 4:23PM
D'oh. Anywho, to be fair, I DID realize that 30 minutes after I posted, but I got some kinda error and decided to take a break. Now I can finally get this level out soon.
By LOLZBALL on Mar. 17th, 2012 4:32PM

How... the fuck... MYMOM234 Just released his level about two hours ago today, I release one and got no views.. And he gets a lot..
By Luigi Is pro on Mar. 17th, 2012 5:30PM
Well, he got 700 views. But his views stopped gaining. But you only got 250 views. You both got under appreciated in the views. You should've gotten 6,000+ views, and MYMOM234 should've gotten 6,500 views. Or more who knows.
By Artist Smeargle on Mar. 17th, 2012 6:46PM

jim bonacci should make a knight on a horse chracter
By Bert on Mar. 17th, 2012 10:07PM
Arcamedes1114 should shut up and realise horses don't have wheels, and that Jim won't add animals.
By PurplePearr on Mar. 17th, 2012 10:24PM
Can you add a multiplayer feature i think that would be so cool to be able to play with other people, when your playing alone it gets kinda boring so can you take that into consideration??
By TJFwarrior on Mar. 17th, 2012 10:25PM

By MetallicDoom15 on Mar. 17th, 2012 10:50PM
here is my new level...[url]http://www.totaljerkface.com/happy_wheels.php?levelid=2935882[/url]
By Luigi Is pro on Mar. 17th, 2012 11:16PM
Oh really, people need to stop complaining and wait for the update patiently, like we "Old" HW users did when the "Germany Land" post was released so please, don't cry to me when you can't wait 2 weeks for an update. We had to fucking wait 3 months, greedy shits these days huh?
Well, MetallicDoom's version was similar to my version, but there both pretty cool. I hoped you guys enjoyed playing them. :D
By bungie7117 on Mar. 17th, 2012 11:30PM

By Bert on Mar. 17th, 2012 11:47PM
Typical 10 year old n00b who knows nothing, and says 'plz' a million times and can't even spell correctly.
By Luigi Is pro on Mar. 17th, 2012 11:48PM
^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. Fucking incoherent pieces of shit these days. Jim has said no repeatedly to this stuff before. So the answer will always be NO until he changes his mind.
By colonel Ford on Mar. 18th, 2012 12:36AM
Poor bert. Lol jokes. Now, lets go try that levels of metallic dooms..
By Luigi Is pro on Mar. 18th, 2012 12:39AM
Fuck, I pointed that toward the wrong person. Sorry Bert you showed up 1 minute earlier than me. Well, I won't be here tomorrow guys sorry to dissapoint you. But hope you have fun Happy Wheeling. See ya. (bro fist)
By MetallicDoom15 on Mar. 18th, 2012 01:28AM
oh...its you.^ i haven't seen you on in a while.
By Safety on Mar. 18th, 2012 01:35AM
Ahh, yes, I've been paying more attention to HW than the posts, they distract me, because the one thing people get out of a thread is arguments, and discomfort.
By Safety on Mar. 18th, 2012 01:58AM
Butt whar is moar karictor?

what's up with the one's :)
By BENNYANDDANNY455 on Mar. 18th, 2012 11:28AM
Cool but i've got a problem to tell you but it won't send a message to you.Two of my levels are five star but are not higher than some over 4.65 rated levels.Could you sort this out and please put my levels on the front page ones when you go on play?
By bramtrol on Mar. 18th, 2012 11:57AM
What do you think?
By VOODOOcal on Mar. 18th, 2012 12:00PM
jim if you read this i think walking is a great idea and i know about a few phys gens ones called Frostbite and the other is Geomod i think there may be one called splash damage but im not sure thanks for the awesome game!
By Bert on Mar. 18th, 2012 12:08PM
HAHAHAH, HOLY FUCK, ARE YOU SERIOUS?
Just because it has a couple ratings (obviously all from you) to make it 5 stars, doesn't mean it should be featured.
* Your levels fucking suck
* No detail
* You beg for a 5 star rating on them
* You use horrible grammar
* You make shitty over-used levels
* You're a typical noob
Honestly, go away, you think your shitty levels should be featured? And you actually think there's a problem with the game because your crappy levels aren't featured? I rated those 2 '5 star' rated levels 0, so now they're both under 5, actually, I rated all your levels 0, becaue they [i]all[/i] suck.
By bramtrol on Mar. 18th, 2012 12:17PM
Keep up the good work Bennyanddanny..
