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.

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 xXMcDumbassXx on Mar. 18th, 2012 12:50PM

Why not program something in c++ so people can download it and modify the game?
By D J A Y on Mar. 18th, 2012 3:42PM
fuck you how bout that:)
By darkfireblaze on Mar. 18th, 2012 3:47PM

By D J A Y on Mar. 18th, 2012 4:05PM

By YamPilot14 on Mar. 18th, 2012 4:20PM
Hey jim can yu make a skateboard guy
By Killer Cheese on Mar. 18th, 2012 4:58PM
Jim and Jason have already said that they will not be making a "skateboard guy", because a character on a skateboard would inevatably turn their body towards the screen to some degree, which is not possible in Happy Wheels as the characters are only seen in profile veiw. Also, the character would be seen standing on the skateboard, then after ejection would simply go limp, which would look retarded. Just forget the "skateboard guy" already.
Nobody is even going to bother to read this are they...
By apple615 on Mar. 18th, 2012 5:09PM
This really has nothing to do with anything,but I just played and beat Divine Intervention.When is Divine Intervention 2 coming out?
By krishon99 on Mar. 18th, 2012 5:15PM
yo man it would be sick if u made an app of happy wheels that should be the next big update
By MYMOM234 on Mar. 18th, 2012 5:36PM
@killercheese i read it. i think there wouldnt be a problem with a skateboar kid, but i hate it because noobs ask for it. Id rather have something fun, origanal, and somewhat gimmicky. (think lawnmower man)
My level is realeased!!! Go check it out, i spent a ton of time on it. ANd dont 0 bomb it like some douchebag already did. I released it yestaerday, but TJF was too slow for me to comment about it. Well, enough of me talking. GO PLAY IT!!!!!
By Safety on Mar. 18th, 2012 6:27PM

By money maker 11 on Mar. 18th, 2012 6:47PM
yo jim i m always om this game cuz i love but i relized something when i hit sort by rating .....it gives what has the best rating but i it want it to sort it out by how many people rated and and by the rating .........
By neonwaffle23 on Mar. 18th, 2012 6:51PM
I think there should be a new playable character called............piggyback dude.Its like a fat cowboy riding on the back of a midget.space will make him jump,ctrl will make you dash forward(its a relly fast midget)&c will make midget get taller for 10 seconds.when he is taller he can stomp & run over people.z-ing will make you and the midget go limp but pressing z again will make midget stand back up again.I hope you make this.
By sethjo on Mar. 18th, 2012 7:39PM
what does he mean kung fuo
By Bread and Butter on Mar. 18th, 2012 7:50PM
agree with djwheels about kung-fu. but don't make a sequel to happy wheels. Otherwise, it just isn't happy wheels
By Awesome3076 on Mar. 18th, 2012 7:51PM

By Luigi Is pro on Mar. 18th, 2012 11:05PM
Indeed there's too many people that are begging for things just because they think that jim will actually make the things that people request him to do? There fucking wrong, people crying over useless shit, its truly pathetic. Achiever and Bert you guys are doing a decent job.
By MetallicDoom15 on Mar. 18th, 2012 11:14PM
hey luigi, i think you need to delete your version of the HW park cus people are getting confused and saying that they already have played it and they arent really different.
By CrrpgLover on Mar. 19th, 2012 07:58AM
This is fucking amazing, that's all I got to say.
And, mostly all the time there is no moderator like you, Adura or someone on our IRC Channel, so we're unable to chat and share stuff, so can you please solve that problem too including that stuff?
By Juniorzac on Mar. 19th, 2012 11:18AM

By SuperChris138 on Mar. 19th, 2012 8:12PM
Mr. Bonacci, I think we would all be appreciative if you were to make fire/acid in Happy Wheels, but if you cannot, or if would take a long time, we understand. We are in no hurry, if you would take a little bit of time to make something, we would be appreciative.
By zbud112 on Mar. 19th, 2012 8:25PM
i like the minigame idea for the new engine i so 'no' to the new engine because, 1. more work for you, and 2. this might make happy wheels way too different from the original version and people may not like it as much, it is a risk to take but its like any game series as Halo for example, Halo: Reach played differently from any other Halo series cause of all the new stuff like the weapons, characters, and equipments like armorlock, some people liked these changes but alot of the people didnt, and sayed halo 3 was better and werent going to play the new item because that wasnt how it was originally played. Its all up to you man, thankyou for reading this post if you did, hope your successfull either way you go!!!! ;)
By theshywillraindeath on Mar. 19th, 2012 8:25PM
Well @SuperChris You asked the correct way. Although we will most likely never get fire or acid (that is interactive, anyway) in Happy Wheels, thank you for not DEMAND SCATBARD CID!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! or something... Non- demanding, calm suggestions are welcome, as long as they are within reason. But I will still advise you to not ask for anything else. Most people will call you a noob. Just chat, because really all this is is a giant chat box. :)

By MYMOM234 on Mar. 19th, 2012 9:00PM
Damn noobs, GTFO!!!! Stop complaining about shit!!!! You and your stupid scatbord kid. I cant wait for signatures on this site. Youll see. OH, YOULL SEE.
Oh yeah, go play my new level. The views are pretty shitty, so i need some help here. PLEEZ? FOR ME?
By Bosheevus on Mar. 19th, 2012 9:02PM
There are tons of idiots that just rate every single new level that's made 0 or 1. I spent a long time on a really good rope swing level I made, and as soon as I published it, it was rated 0. Less than 10 seconds, and it was already rated 0. Jim, this may be a bit of a pain, but could you make it so that there's an automatic monitoring system? One that would monitor how often someone rates 0 and 1. What it could do is if say someone rated levels 0 or 1 5 or 10 times in a row. It could temporarily disable their ability to rate levels for.. 24 hours? I don't know, but I'm sure you could think of something. Thanks for taking your time to read this.
By Artist Smeargle on Mar. 19th, 2012 9:06PM
Actually, people only rate levels 0 - 1 because they are either bad, or they don't like it, OR, OR MAYBE UNORIGINAL. See: "Frequent Levels": http://www.happywheels.wikia.com/wiki/Frequent_Levels
