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.

FIX THE DAMN SERVERS! I can't vote on a shitty level without the game crashing! And I can't visit the Home Page without that little fuck, Headache Puppy!
By Bert on Jul. 25th, 2012 11:41PM
Don't worry, my attitude won't change now that I'm a moderator, I just wanted to edit it for fun!
I've deleted a couple levels so far, I'll need to be on the lookout more. Be sure to let me know if there's a level that needs to be removed.
By Foggy Red Lights on Jul. 26th, 2012 01:15AM
Woohoo Bert, doesn't this mean you can rate a level like 15 times in one day?
By Bert on Jul. 26th, 2012 01:21AM
I can rate a level as many times as I want! Each vote of mine is worth 15 too.
By ACHIEVERjunior on Jul. 26th, 2012 07:36AM
Make sure to rate 5 stars on all of my levels, I won't be making anymore :(
By TheAwsome5797 on Jul. 26th, 2012 09:00AM
Sooooooo [u]Awesome[/u] :)
By USER 6482957 on Jul. 26th, 2012 1:24PM
has anyone noticed the bug were certain items in old levels (mostly vans)losse their interactive value? it would be nice if it was fixed
By Hezze on Jul. 26th, 2012 3:31PM
Whoa Bert, congratz!

By darkfag on Jul. 26th, 2012 6:03PM
you went to jail
By Bert on Jul. 26th, 2012 6:10PM
I've been removing plenty of annoying levels that tell you to rate 5 or break other rules. It's so good knowing I can do something about the rate 5 spam! It makes the game a better place.
By sprenkels on Jul. 26th, 2012 8:26PM
wow!!, i also want be a moderator! to delete all those bottle runs 'n stuff!
By Harry Boner on Jul. 27th, 2012 5:22PM
Congrats on promotion Bert! New servers are kicking ass! Am finally able to rate godawful/shitty levels as godawful/shitty w/out having the game lock up.
By Defiasmidge on Jul. 27th, 2012 6:04PM

By D J A Y on Jul. 27th, 2012 6:52PM
Bert...mod...wah da fah!?...no fair...i wanna rate 15 times too
By I8ursister on Jul. 27th, 2012 7:35PM
WHY IS ALL THE TEXT IN THE LEVELS GONE!?
By GYXRNN on Jul. 27th, 2012 7:36PM
all the texts in my lv ALL disappered!if u have the same problem just say it so jim can edit it back-.-
By I8ursister on Jul. 27th, 2012 7:44PM
WHY DID JIM DELETE THE LEVEL TEXTS?
By Bert on Jul. 27th, 2012 7:51PM
Ok everyone, I'm sure it's just a coding error, or an issue with the new server. Jim is most likely aware.
The top played for today are horrific, there's nothing but sword throws and 'for pewdiepie' levels. Don't worry, I zero-bombed them all a lot, and deleted any levels that ask for a 5 star rating.
By The Ronin on Jul. 27th, 2012 7:58PM
Congrats Bert! Now back to Happy Wheels!
By 456due on Jul. 27th, 2012 8:05PM

Grats on mod.

By Safety on Jul. 27th, 2012 10:44PM
They're not disappearing. A. They are off topic and taken out by a moderator. or B. you can't post 2 comments in a row in the home section. Kind what Track did to me in A.A.A. post 2 comments in a row = GTFO MY CLAN
By mynameisernest on Jul. 28th, 2012 01:31AM
this is a great update jim
By Michll on Jul. 28th, 2012 03:35AM
Hey, stupidkarma, guess who is stupid?YOU!
Congrats on mod, Bert.I was looking at You flaming those noobs, and now You`re making the game a better place.
By Bert on Jul. 28th, 2012 03:55AM
I deleted that stupidkarma guy's comments. So remember, no need to yell at noobs ever again! As I can simply delete their comments. Is anyone else seeing a backward slash go in before a single quotation mark? Seems to only be happening with the new server.
By ACHIEVERjunior on Jul. 28th, 2012 06:19AM
I'm starting to think that our children's children's children's children will be the first to see the new forums
By D J A Y on Jul. 28th, 2012 07:17AM

I can't play happy wheels on my computer anymore
By W A F F L E on Jul. 28th, 2012 09:36AM
thomas no need to spam here you can spam my inbox as much as you want (:
By Bert on Jul. 28th, 2012 10:26AM
How come people can post more than once in a row? Ages ago, Jim made it so you could only do one post until someone else posted to reduce spam.
By BDasher on Jul. 28th, 2012 11:10AM
I'd like to see a Hardness rating, ranging from Cakewalk to Immposibru. Or something.
By ms63129 on Jul. 28th, 2012 2:26PM
There still seems to be some bugs in the site; I still get a lot of "there was a problem loading the level" and when I tried to view this page it displayed the headache puppy message several times before loading and took a minute to load when it did. It's also worse during the day, so it appears to be a load issue.
By LWPeterson on Jul. 28th, 2012 6:50PM
Uhh... I says on the level browser that only "everyone" came up on the authors and not me. I see that people can still post levels though. Is this happening to anyone else? I also can't post comment onto youtube channels on youtube. THIS IS WIRED! Is this happening to any of you?
By I8ursister on Jul. 28th, 2012 7:58PM
I have a question. In some levels that were made before the trigger tool was released,any vans,tables,and/or chairs in those levels became non-interactvie. Will this be fixed?
By colonel Ford on Jul. 29th, 2012 12:27AM
Whats with the "/"?
By Bert on Jul. 29th, 2012 12:48AM
Most likely, but these new servers have something seriously wrong with them! I can't delete levels, I need to delete all these rule-breaking levels, so people don't fall for rating 5.
The servers are also slow. Something will most likely be done, but it's like Discord has turned the site upside down!
By m0nk3y14 on Jul. 29th, 2012 01:37AM
cool cant wait is there going to be a way to make some objects move up down left or right when trigered love this game
i hate to be asking a lot but can there be a zombie
By IAMURHUSBAND on Jul. 29th, 2012 03:07AM
I can't delete levels either.
I try to delete my levels from my profile page, but they just wont't disappear from User Submitted Levels.
Good to hear that I'm not the only one experiencing this problem.
By yoavsnake on Jul. 29th, 2012 03:18AM
Make polygons work as shapes?
By Bert on Jul. 29th, 2012 05:28AM
@IAMURHUSBAND, ever since this new server and the v1.69 update, the site has basically exploded.
[*]Text doesn't work in levels (works in new levels I think).
[*]People say other objects in levels don't work either.
[*]Single quote marks always have a backslash before them: '.
[*]Levels can't be deleted.
[*]People can now comment more than once in a row.
[*]The site hardly works and keeps cutting.
[*]Various other things I'm sure.
I edited my comment and removed the backwards slashes.
Hopefully something is done soon. I'd assume so, since others are experiencing this.
yoavsnake, Polygons can't be treated as shapes, I'd explain, but I don't want to get into detail.
Oh, and here's a giant Fluttershy :3 (since we're nearing page 10).
By Killer Cheese on Jul. 29th, 2012 07:55AM
New moderator, holy shit. Congratulations also.
By LWPeterson on Jul. 29th, 2012 08:10AM
Killer cheese you just found out now?
