    I gave this a go.

    The interface you've made is very impressive, and I like the layout of it. Can I ask what the blood bar does, out of interest?

    I had a play about with the weapons in the starting area. Grenades are impressive. Then I got into the spaceship. At that point, my ship flew off into the edge of the screen, and an almighty swarm of little ships, um, swarmed me. It took me a while to get my ship off the edge of the screen, and then I couldn't get the hang of flying it. I think possibly partly because I couldn't see my ship under all of the little enemy ships. I just kept zooming from map to map, and just as I figured out how to equip my ship's weapon, I died.

    I'd say that space section really needs work. A bit of peace when first taking off to at least figure out the controls would be wise, and I'm not sure if you intended for all of the enemies to instantly attack you.

    Interface: Redemption made it.
    Grenade: Redemption made it. (but I did did the right click thingy!)
    Blood bar: Redemption made it.

    The blood bar is how much blood you have. You can't heal normal health without full blood.
    I added the ship at the last second, basically. It would be fixed, but I'm only working on the player at this point. I have part of a tutorial and I'm going to add it in next version.

    Why does the station need work? Are you talking about the massive amounts of energy and health you have once you get on?

    Dual assault and shotgun finished. (It's really fast when I already have at least one dual-wieldable already)

    NEW:
    Having low blood makes some funky diziness effects.
    Tank bug fixed.
    Tutorial at start.
    W00t! Storyline!

    NEWER:
    Notepad++ Custom Notrium code made! Huzzay!
    New suit mode: disruption. It messes with gravity and everythink!

    I'm not going to release the next version for a looooong time. Instead Im going to update cukkoo bananas then release it.

    NEWER-ER:
    New shield system. It is 110% different from mageking17's. It has perfect detection, it's easier to understand, it only requires 2 scripts instead of 1 script for each health loss amount. Look out for it in the library once I tweak it a bit.

    It's ZeXLR8er!!'s, actually, but I thank you for thinking I came up with the system.

    I actually came up with a really neat reactor-fuel system for Wazzal II Beta... 1? 2?, but I never updated it for the latest version.

    Doh! It's just that in the modding library you were the only one to mention that it was Wazzal II's system! Co-incidence or conspiracy?

    NEW (after 20 seconds): I'm gonna kick speed mode since Notrium doesn't like very fast moving objects Quantum Teleporting through walls, etc.

    NEW (after several hours): Alas, a crippling bug is 'sploding my mod from the inside out. It better work out...*fist shaking*

    NEW (after even more hours): The crippling bug isn't showing it's faceless face! Here's the bug: You can only fire any weapon once before all weapons fire, but no bullets come out!

    I BEG ANYONE TO HELP ME! This is worse then my first bug!
    #
    Redemption 8 years ago
    Maybe the dual wieldable weapons scripts are messing up somehow.
    Try adding messages to all those scripts (or any latest/modified ones) to see if the message pops up when the bug appears.

    ...

    What were you working on when it happened?
    #
    Aegis 8 years ago
    I was working on a script which disabled the shield from charging whenever you were hit. The only effects it had on anything were scripts which charged the suit energy. I've also tried creating messages for all related scripts, but no scripts are related to every single gun.
    #
    roburky 8 years ago
    I've experienced something similar. Weapons continue to fire, with all the ammunition drains etc, but no bullets come out. It was somehow related to my high temperature scripts with screen/mouse shaking, speed changes, bar drains et. I remember tweaking the timers on them, and it stopped. I still don't know the precise cause.

I still don't know the precise cause.

    I've tweaked the timers a bit but it still isn't working. I've also come to the conclusion that it isn't script related, as I have moved the end_of_file; right at the start, and the problem still persisted. Did you tweak anything else? Like player_races etc.?
    #
    roburky 8 years ago
    As I say, it seemed to fix itself without anything of any substance changing in my files. It only happened when the player was at high temperature, so it was only the scripts file that I tweaked.

    If it begins after you've fired a weapon once, maybe it's something to do with your weapon firing effects?
    #
    Aegis 8 years ago
    Aaaaahhhh.... Problem fixed! *drools* If yoummust know what the problem is, here I go:
    Firing a weapon raised a bar which can't go over the maximum (so the bar needs to go down before firing again).
    A script usually does this but another script contradicted that script, and this happened because another 2 contradictions were forcing another script to contradict itself. Confused?

    P.S. Thanks roburky. Ye shall be hailed through thee ages!
    #
    roburky 8 years ago
    I'm glad you fixed it, even if I don't understand it.

    Edit: Hmm, actually my similar problem has resurfaced. Would you be able to give me any tips back on what I'm looking for to get rid of it?

    Edit: Ah, I found what was causing mine. A firing effect on my weapon was adding to my temperature bar. But if the temperature bar was already at maximum, the effect wouldn't allow it to increase it further, and this somehow prevented the weapon from firing its bullet. Was this at all similar to your problem?

    Update to those who give a damn (not mageking):
    Bug fixes
    Suit mode selection method thought up. Here's what it could do if everything works.
    Holding down middle mouse button will create a bunch of plot objects each displaying a different suit mode, hovering the cursor over these will highlight / change their size, then releasing the button will select the power.

    The only problem is that I don't know how to position the plot objects...
    #
    Redemption 8 years ago
    Sounds like a great idea.

    "Aegis" said:

    Use effect 68 (Unless you want the plot objects to be placed in an absolute location regardless of where you are facing [Using effect 55 could help with this, but could cause other problems]).

    Thanks Redemption, it works perfectly.

    Can you please update your download soon cause all these updates sound awsome
    #
    Aegis 8 years ago
    There is a very annoying problem with the middle mouse button selection method. The problem is that the plot_object is dropped relative to the player's facing, meaning that only the top plot object can be selected, as it rotates with the cursor. Here is a screeny:

    (it won't resize because the forums have a limit)
    Got any ideas anyone?

    Not for a little while. I still have to:
    - Do more bug fixes.
    - Finish the tutorial.
    - Add 6 new suit modes.
    - Make the first mission.
    - Implement the storyline.
    - Fix graphical issues.
    - Add the suit selection thingy.
    - Add different suit graphics.
    - Fix the Marine destruct mode.
    - And more!

    UPDATED:
    - Added ISR suit mode (increased sensory reception)
    - Added targeting optics suit mode.
    - Armour is now the default suit mode, meaning that you will always be on armour of you're not on anything else.
    - Increased weapon shake.
    - Player health is now back to 50
    - Bug fixes.

    Maybe have the selection objects dropped on a press of the middle mouse button, rather than holding it down, and have them disappear only when one is selected.
    Could pause the game with the game speed altering effect while the player does this, perhaps. I don't know if that works.
    #
    Aegis 8 years ago
    That's what I was thinking of originally, but I would like it if the player could continue moving as well, for near-seamless selection. I could always use that as a backup, though.

    UPDATE:
    Only 2 suit modes remaining: strength and ion shield.
    #
    Aegis 8 years ago
    YES! YES! YESSS!!!!

    I'VE FIXED THE PROBLEM!!!!!! SORRY FOR DOUBLING POSTING (I'LL FIX IT LATER!!!!!)!!!!
    I USE A WEAPON TO DROP THE PLOT OBJECTS 'CAUSE IT IS IN ABSOLUTE AND IT WORKS!!!!!!!!!!!!


    Yes my caps was stuck on...sorry

    Progress Update for non-Magekings
    - I've basically finished the suit selection method, and I must say that it is the perfect way to change suit modes.
    - I've finished suit-strength
    - Unfortunately i'm having a teensy bit of trouble with the plot_objects growing bigger when the cursor hovers over it (you see 2 at once) but you don't need that, do you? Anyone? Excellent.

    Well...I 've basically finished suit strength, and since everybody can't wait I guess that I'll have to cut my to-do list and change it to this:
    - Abruptly end the tutorial.
    - Make first mission
    - Complete suit-selection
    - Make Ion-shield

    First Mission:
    - Don't bother doing security cameras
    - Don't bother making civilians
    - Don't bother making key-cards to open different security doors
    - Don't bother making everything-go-dark-at-the-end-and-have-a-choice-between-an-extremely-weak-torch-you-found-on-the-ground-or-the-All-Seeing-suit-mode,- but-at-the-cost-that-you-can't-use-any-other-suit-modes.
    - Don't bother putting in the story
    - Don't bother making a weird mutan--- I've said too much.

    (edit: I probably actually will add that!)

    I knew it was a joke. And I'll probably stop bringing it up every single progress update I make...unless, of course, I absolutely need to. I'll let you use your imagination to decide when it'll be.

    Nah. I already did it.

    Progress update NEW!
    - I've made an NPC who will stick with you for a while.
    - You can interactively talk to him by choosing the topic from a list.

    Progress update NEW-ISH!
    -Mission 1 design etc. started
    -Story *half* implemented

    Does anyone mind much blood? There's lots of blood in Mission 1.

    Progress Update OLD
    - Suit modes finished
    - Suit selection finished
    - Added pre-selection effects
    - Beginning work on mission 1.

    Expect the release in 5 days to 20 years.

    I'm making slow progress because of all of these finicky suit scripts, they always want to contradict eachother, as I have lots of bars all over the place.
    But with the suit selection finished releases will pick up!
    #
    Aegis 8 years ago
    Thats right, it's FINALLY released.
    There are heaps of changes, but the main update is the suit.
    New controls:
    Y: get out of tank
    T: TALK TO SOMEONE (critically important)
    Middle Mouse Button: Access suit controls.
    I forgot the rest...
    <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://rapidshare.com/files/93891422/Nano_Pulse_v0.07.rar">http://rapidshare.com/files/93891422/Na ... _v0.07.rar</a><!-- m -->

    Coming next version (yes, already)
    Smarter AI: uses eat objects, they talk to eachother, hopefully no more killing walls.
    Destructible trees: You shoot, they fall, it hurts. I just need the graphics.
    Mission 2.
    More to mission 1.
    Etc. etc. BLAH BLAH BLAH

    Uploads are talking so long that I think that I'll release a new graphics pack for each version, as a seperate file which requires the previous pack.
