NEW SITE, YAY
By Jim on March 13, 2014

...I don't want to jinx it, but it appears as though I have a reliable, fully functioning site (THIS SITE YOU ARE ON RIGHT NOW, YOU FOOLS!). We'll see how it goes during full traffic load today, but for me it has remained zippy no matter what I do. I'm just in disbelief that you can actually play Happy Wheels for more than 3 minutes without it hanging and requiring a refresh. All credit goes to Alec, who rebuilt the new java site and database from scratch. Very special thanks to Sean who managed to tape together the broken pile of sticks that was the original site (which was intended for magnitudes less than 500,000 users a day) for the past couple years. Right now we just wanted to match the intended functionality of the old site, but because the foundation has been completely redone, the site can be expanded with new features. Along with the update to the entire backend, I updated and added several things to the game. Here's a list:
 
 
  • New, more efficient level and replay browsers
  • Level and author search has been reactivated
  • Favoriting levels actually works
  • An arrow in the featured levels menu lets you see other levels by featured authors
  • Publishing levels is now separate from saving
  • Deleting levels can now be done in the editor load menu. This may be added back to user pages this week.
  • There is a debug draw mode in the level editor. This will allow you to see all physics shapes and joints when testing a level. It must be checked on in the drop down editor menu.
  • Triggers can now be triggered by other triggers. The line connecting the triggers will have arrows pointing in the direction of the receiving trigger. This will allow you do apply several trigger actions at once to several object without having all the triggers overlap.
  • Triggers can be disabled and enabled through other triggers. This will prevent them from going off until required.
  • Triggers now have a repeat setting. Previously triggers would activate once and delete themselves. Now you can, with various options, have a trigger action repeat itself continuously. This will allow you to do things that were previously very complicated or impossible. I can have an old man jumping and yelling about his leg until the end of time.
  • Groups now have the same trigger actions as shapes. You can now set groups to fixed, non-fixed, delete group shapes, and delete the entire group with triggers.
  • When copying and pasting triggers and shapes, trigger actions will now actually copy over. Previously copied actions would be set to their default values. It was annoying.
  • Non-player characters can now be manually posed by double clicking on them and dragging their limbs. I've had to do inverse kinematics for the new game, so I plopped it in here. Dragging the stupid sliders to pose the characters before was such a pain in the ass. Sorry I didn't do this sooner.
  • "Hold pose" for non-player characters now works more closely to how I originally intended. It will work how it used to for old levels.
  • Various editor bugs have been fixed. There may be more I haven't been aware of. I will make a bugs email address so people can help me find any I've missed.
  • *(forgot this one) Shapes now have 2 new collision settings.


I think that's it. There may be one or two things I've missed. I'll edit the post if I remember. I'm going to make a video for tomorrow showing some ideas for things you can make with the new features. I'm still mad nobody has made a good helicopter man level. Maybe it's because I didn't even mention him in a news post. Or maybe I just missed one. If you know of one, please let me know. I already have to go back and feature like 10 levels over the past few months.

Anyways, I'm very happy to have the site functioning as it is. Thank you for your patience in dealing with the migration. If you were not patient... well, sorry. Now that problems can actually be solved and new news posts don't require me to login to phpmyadmin, I'll be more communicative and less of a recluse. There are still some issues that we are aware of (some deleted levels have been restored, some level data must be retransferred, and some old replays have ratings of zero), but these will hopefully all be ironed out in the next week. After that I will be helping Jason finish up the iPhone version, and then I will finally return to the Happy Wheels sequel.

Comments are now listed most recent first. This was originally confusing me, but it's better.

For now, here's my goodbye in stunning comic sans!

By Surlin_Darius on June 30, 2014

You can make a new option at trigger to appear a shape??? it can help ! And make the polygon tool with more lines and to move lines in other parts ! no in circle.
By floplollipop on June 20, 2014

Can you please add some more characters? Like a dude in an airplane? Or maybe you could make the level editor a bit easier? It's SO hard to make a nice detailed level! And to make vehicles. And to make our character walk, like on two legs, not on his/her vehicle. Happy Wheels is getting a bit boring and it's not like it was before. And hey, what was the name of the level which is "a mini GTA" ? I JUST CANT FIND IT!!!!!

By EatAllTheCheese on May 26, 2014

I was thinking you could make a kid character with a douchebag haircut and a backwards hat riding a scooter, or a skateboard, and for the sounds it'd be like a skateboard's wheels moving along the ground, as casual, duhh. Also, I hate comic sans. How could you?
By Princess Woona on May 26, 2014

By RizzoJizz on May 04, 2014

I'm not gonna lie I love Happy Wheels, but the pin tool and trigger tool are fucking ridiculous and there is really no need for them because they do not fucking work! :D I have tried every you tube step by step thing and triggers don't even go off or even work and joints don't even stay together and the whole pin and trigger tool are worthless. I'd honestly get rid of them because very little people know how to fucking work the damn things.
By xXMaceManiacXx on May 03, 2014

Hey jim! Dude, once I have completed my minecraft level, care to check it out? If you like it post feedback on your youtube channel, that's "imangryman" right? Enjoy! Plus happy wheels NEEDS a new character! Maybe a guy on a skateboard or an old WOMAN called wheelchair woman who is basicly like moped couple just, in wheelchairs. Bai bai!!!! (Sorry aboy the 9billion word essay on this comment)

By Eff EL Official on April 03, 2014

Well honestly, I would like to see that Happy Wheels thing on the Android, as well, seeing as how I'm anti-apple, those fucking hypocrite, "don't fucking jailbreak our phones" douches... Yeah... Android. Open Source. Yay. But yeah, I'm sure you guys could do it.
