sort of done
By someone on Jul. 6th, 2012 10:16AM
Ok, the new update is up (but not entirely finished). With Thailand jail and the length of time this took, it's actually been a long while since my last update to the game. Sorry about that.
The update is a new tool that you can use to trigger events during gameplay. The player rides through a trigger area, and various things are activated. Right now you can either activate an object or play a sound.
In most cases, activating an object is waking it up if it's in a sleeping state. Certain special items have more useful activations. Mines will explode and boosts and fans will turn on. You currently cannot decide what the activation will be; you are given a default action. I will change that with a future update... I ran out of time and only thought of it halfway through developing. It'd be cool if rather than just waking up a shape, you could make it appear, disappear, set it to a fixed or non-fixed state, give it a certain velocity, fade in/out, blah blah blah.
If you choose to play a sound effect instead, you don't attach the trigger to any other objects. You just select the sound, and set the volume and panning. With proper use of delay, you can probably make some horrible songs from various screams. Now you can hear "oh my leg!" until it's unbearable (if it's not already).
I do plan on adding ambient sounds but ran out of time today. I will work on that first thing next week. Going through various sound libraries and setting up loops is longer and more tedious than expected.

Is jim in thailand jail?
By Killer Cheese on Jul. 29th, 2012 08:41AM
@LWPeterson: Yeah I was on holiday last week so I only found out today.
@Happy Hands: No, that was a joke, but did you know that the word "gullible" isn't found in any dictionary?

The gang isn't what it used to be anymore
By LWPeterson on Jul. 29th, 2012 7:27PM
Their should be a cancel button to end what you were doing because sometimes it takes forever to do something and I have to entirely refresh the page.
By Bert on Jul. 30th, 2012 02:36AM
@MYMOM234, I've been active heaps on this site for years, so there's no point of leaving, I'll be active here a lot.
By Artist Smeargle on Jul. 30th, 2012 03:59AM
Haven't done much to my Isaac level sadly, gonna try and work on it for a few.
By gemy on Jul. 30th, 2012 05:04AM
HE IS IN JAIL!WTF IS HAPPENNING
By The Epic FAIL on Jul. 30th, 2012 07:22AM
A Great update thanks. I know i sound a bit selfish but could you please tell people to stop making demos and stuff that just waste time and take up level spaces cause their the easiest ones to do. If you make a level you don't just make a demo to get likes then leave us hanging or make a level with no amount of detail cause they run out of room and make a 4 second level. I just don't see the point. Just tell them to make a full level with no detail cause there is no point. Im soory to carry on but thanks if you do.
By ACHIEVERjunior on Jul. 30th, 2012 07:33AM
Gettin real tired of yo shit master wayne
By Bert on Jul. 30th, 2012 07:59AM
@The Epic FAIL, people only do it to get high ratings and views, don't worry, I delete them all, so when the site is fixed, I can start deleting all these terrible rule-breaking levels again.
By N O V A 4 L I F E on Jul. 30th, 2012 8:09PM
THANKS JIM FOR IMPROVING THE GAME.i think you should add liquids like lava and water and there would be a switch to select how long you culd survive in the liquid.
By ConnorRulez on Jul. 31st, 2012 03:53AM
Can you make an option to make triggers work multiple times?
By the hooch on Jul. 31st, 2012 04:09AM
I love the work you guys do and all that but can you seriously sort out the site. We haven't had forums for about a year now and now the messages are gone too?
By ACHIEVERjunior on Jul. 31st, 2012 04:48AM
Hey Bert the pm system is broken again
By basher on Jul. 31st, 2012 12:20PM
what do you mean by tailand jain?!?
By LWPeterson on Jul. 31st, 2012 6:34PM
I agree to killer cheese. Did you mean to post this twice?
By LWPeterson on Jul. 31st, 2012 9:09PM
Bert knows ACHIEVER!
By ACHIEVERjunior on Aug. 1st, 2012 02:03AM
I remember the forums, about 20 years ago, I just don't think Jimmy and Veggieboy are enough to rebuild the forums, so Jim needs to get employees fast!
By Bert on Aug. 1st, 2012 02:55AM
Everyone should know. When you click on your messages, it goes to a page that says: "The PM system is seriously broken, so it's gone for a while."
I remember the forums as well.
By Hezze on Aug. 1st, 2012 04:08AM
Well, the forums were awesome before kids started to invade them...
By colonel Ford on Aug. 1st, 2012 04:10AM
It was broken ages ago. Or I'm pretty sure it was. I recieved although when I tried to look at them, it sorta fucked up.
By MYMOM234 on Aug. 1st, 2012 3:31PM
i love how Jim gets rid of PMing and the site runs perfectly fine.
Please, do not make groups. People at xat have been arguing all day about how much they hate groups, and i agree. Some guy named IAMURARTIST thinks he can actualy make a group that wont blow up in his face. (giggity)
todays life lesson is:
DONT MAKE GROUPS, MAKE PERVERT JOKES INSTEAD
the end of my post
By MYMOM234 on Aug. 1st, 2012 3:32PM
@bert please see mystic and udie and adura.
By Merlin the Wizard on Aug. 1st, 2012 3:39PM
Let's start a group to tell people to stop making groups! Oh, wait...
By Bert on Aug. 1st, 2012 6:08PM
By LWPeterson on Aug. 1st, 2012 6:58PM
You know you can still visit the old forums here:
By Hezze on Aug. 2nd, 2012 05:15AM
I know, but it doesn't work every time...
By Ticy on Aug. 2nd, 2012 06:00AM
Dang it! Is there anyone else who is logged in but when they play happy wheels it says they aren't? I wanna make levels!
By LWPeterson on Aug. 2nd, 2012 06:40AM
Refresh the page a few times and wait a little. Works for me.
By ACHIEVERjunior on Aug. 2nd, 2012 06:43AM
I haven't been able to play happy wheels for, what? like almost a year now? feels like infinity
By Artist Smeargle on Aug. 2nd, 2012 09:27AM
IAMURARTIST? Jesus, did me and IAMURHUSBAND have a baby and I never knew about it?
By LWPeterson on Aug. 3rd, 2012 6:42PM
ACHIEVER relies on telling noobs off for his living.
By ACHIEVERjunior on Aug. 4th, 2012 05:46AM
