Hey, so my bastard brother is attempting to do a video project with some funding and has a kickstarter here
. If you are feeling at all generous, please check it out.
As for my previous post, I'd just like to clarify a few things. Happy Wheels in its current form will always be free and available as long as I can afford hosting. I'm always going to need a database no matter what I end up doing, so I don't see that changing. I will still update flash Happy Wheels on occasion. The reason I'm working on a game in c++ is because flash is very limiting. I'm not just converting what currently exists. I'm making a new game.
I plan on keeping things 2d, but I'll be using 3d modeling to create the graphics. I've started using sculptris
and it is awesome. Textures will still be flat, but the depth of the models will allow me to use normal mapping, which means I can make use of dynamic lighting. I plan on using a similar look to the current art style, but objects will be lit differently as they rotate.
I'll ramble on some more as I progress.

oops, sorry. I was fooling around and I didn't know my earlier "reply" would get posted (not to mention my "reply" is older than your post).
Anyway, that sounds pretty interesting. I'm looking forward to it (if I can).

Wth is it with the website lagging? I quadruple-posted on the cruddy server's behalf.
By ms63129 on Dec. 9th, 2012 6:11PM
The site is having the same problems that it had about a week ago, if not quite as bad (yet, it was completely unloadable for hours at a time then). Perhaps Adura is working on something and it will work better than it had for the past week (still had some level loading errors, plus the server seems to have hiccups displaying/updating levels and replays; by this I mean the level/replay lists didn't seem to update properly, and often when I tried to view a replay, it would immediately skip to the end (character doesn't move from start) without running through it).

Great to see it's coming along nicely, hopefully more users can now see that you won't have to pay to play the game.

By MYMOM234 on Dec. 10th, 2012 4:13PM
Idiots cant read. Jim shouldn't have even needed to make this news post if it wasn't for the retards that inhabit the site.
By Mystic on Dec. 10th, 2012 5:11PM
ooooooooo nice, though I already knew most of the things you talked abou lol
By S P A R T A on Dec. 10th, 2012 5:24PM
Au,S,O,Mn (79)(16)(8)(25) Wait, what does that create?
By MYMOM234 on Dec. 10th, 2012 6:04PM
@jarkfeis, Go suck a dick. OH WAIT! you are already busy with you own. Congratulations on being that flexible. Hell, you should be one of those gay guys that does girly shit in the olympic gymnastics. You would most likely get a gold medal. Ya know, because the gayest guy wins, right?
By tailsdoll22 on Dec. 10th, 2012 6:05PM
Hey Jim i think i have a good idea for you on how to make happy wheels better but still free to play.
Step 1. Remove the crappy levels like the fake glitch ones and crap.
Step 2. If people keep making the fake glitches, 2 sec levels, ball throws and/or sword throws at first you block them for a week or so then if they do it again band them
Step 3. Enjoy happy wheels one more time.
By MYMOM234 on Dec. 10th, 2012 6:20PM
dafuq did i just read ^
By butterboy on Dec. 10th, 2012 8:44PM
i am sure the game will be epic, like the rest of them! (new to total jerkface)
By butterboy on Dec. 10th, 2012 8:51PM
i have been having the same problems with loading happy wheels it just goes to a blue screen after the bar loads...
By LWPeterson on Dec. 10th, 2012 8:57PM
Hey Jim, Can you please tell us what the game will be called and what it's about?
By Safety on Dec. 10th, 2012 9:49PM
Jim, are you going to leave HW behind? And another thing, if you have to pay for the next game, 5$ correct? How will you have to pay, will it go on a credit card? |-.-|
By Whoopsht on Dec. 10th, 2012 10:38PM
It's probably better that you avoid the level editor. It may fry the few circuits left in your head.
Is that still you, from like two years ago?
Be honest, will the forums ever come back from the dead?
By Nivihere01 on Dec. 11th, 2012 01:25AM
Everytime I log in, the game says that Im not
By S P A R T A on Dec. 11th, 2012 06:21AM
Yes, that is Mr. Saftey, who are you Whoop?

I would like to see some Video about your New game Progress...we would love!
By Evan072299 on Dec. 11th, 2012 5:55PM
Hey! All you people talking about how bad the website is is retarded! It's not Jim's fault that your internet is screwed up or you're an idiot. The website is fine. There's no fixing necessary.
By CAPSlock3R1 on Dec. 11th, 2012 8:16PM
Wait... So is the new version of HW going to be free?
By Ninja JJP on Dec. 11th, 2012 8:28PM

He needs to make happy wheels v 1.71
By zackattack256 on Dec. 11th, 2012 11:11PM

By TOBUSCUS FOREVER on Dec. 11th, 2012 11:58PM
welllll......jim because this happy wheels ia free and your planning on putting it on for 5-10 dollars!?!? you better plan to put this in stores or either some or most of the people that play this game wont buy it.
By S P A R T A on Dec. 12th, 2012 06:10AM
First of all, "TOBUSCUS FOREVER," your name makes you sound like you're 5. Second, you obviously have no comprehension of the English language. Third, for the millionth time, JIM IS NOT MAKING THIS GAME COST MONEY. HE IS MAKING A SECOND GAME THAT YOU WILL BE ABLE TO BUY OVER THE INTERNET. SEQUEL. NUMBER 2. NOT THIS ONE. Thank you, that is all.
By IAmVeryBored on Dec. 12th, 2012 07:02AM
Jim, in case you don't remember, I think someone wanted a Divine Intervention 2. I don't what game that you are currently making will be, but just in case, this will come into your mind (but I seriously doubt you would even make Divine Intervention 2 since you are in progress making another game (assuming)).
By phillipcurl3 on Dec. 12th, 2012 12:14PM
You people asking Jim to "fix the fucking servers you mother fucking fucktard" obviously know nothing about websites, databases, or anything in general. So shut up.
And seriously? whats up with all this language? cursing profusely doesn't make anyone see you as "cool" or whatever the hell it is your trying to accomplish. Its annoying and makes you look like even more of an idiot than you already are.
By MYMOM234 on Dec. 12th, 2012 4:48PM
apparently, nobody here can read.
By MYMOM234 on Dec. 12th, 2012 4:51PM
apparently, the about page and forums page dont exist. neither does the IRC channel or the PM system. or the poll. or the thing we did with the ID= glitch. WHAT HAS BECOME OF THIS SITE
By thatguyinthatplace on Dec. 12th, 2012 7:45PM
