Kool -- possibly notify the user of position placed in races too.

Done!  ;)

Fun : o)

I get a crash though a lot of times after it submits to the high score table

Also if I hold down the left mouse button to place the flag and don't let go and shake my mouse for a few seconds I get a crash.

Not quite sure how the point system works either :) (especially on race).

You can get rid of the following two scores if you want -- I was curious and wanted to see the map structure you had on your map file, so I editted it XD.

can remove:
  ==>io   Race   41.2008 s   2245
  ==>io   Race   40.4818 s   764

Good work though!

Thanks io, I'll take a look to that crashes. The point system is a bit strange, simply you get more points if there are more obstacles in the map. And you lose points every second passed. So, even if you play a map with few obstacles and ride fast, you won't get many points.

In flag mode, the more flags you complete, the more points you get. And for each flag completed, you get bonus points, but if you fail, the bonus counter will be reseted.

Fixed the mouse crash, and point system changed on races:
  1st: +400 points
  2nd: +300 points
  3rd: +200 points
  4th: +100 points
  5th: +0 points

but which shape should I use? A circle?

If you use photoshop a single black (or some gray color) overlay and transforming/warping of the original can do well enough.
I have used photoshop and I've got something better. It's updated.

You are right Nexus, so I've just increased the speed  ;).
And the rider shadow... I forgot to do it, but anyway I think It would be a bit hard to do. As you have already said, a static sprite should be enough, but wich shape shoud I use? A circle?

This looks really nice! Good job! :)

I know it's silly, but I have to ask anyways... were you by any chance a bit inspired by SkiFree? ;D

No, I don't know that game. But,  I was inspired by an old flash game whose name I can't remember. In fact, I took the boarder sprite from it.

Thanks eXpl0it3r

Here I come again with a new game. After releasing Rounded Soccer, I used the same framework to change it a bit and to do this game.

Snowboard style game where you can ride random maps. These random maps are different from each other when selecting different zones on the mountain. Freeride, race and flag modes. After beating any race or flag mode, you can submit your highscore and view it in-game or here.

Used technology
C++ and SFML 2.0.

Still have to build for linux.

Move - Arrow Keys
Jump - Space (Only when going forward).
Select zone - Click anywhere on the mountain to select the place where you will ride.

Web & download
Download Freerider.zip (3.23 MB)

Nice, It reminds me of the Nintendo's great game Urban Champion

I use circle to circle collision. Except for collisions with the walls. Why?

I've updated the download links, the game is RELEASED so now you can play every game modes.

Nice idea if there was anyone else online.  Why not add a single player AI if there are no human players to battle?
That would be interesting, but how I could decide when to make a server or directly play against the computer?
Another things that could be added is a way to tell if anyone is online at all.
Yeah, I thought about that and I planned to put more info (ranking, online matches, online users...)

Btw, thanks for feedback!

Hi all,

I've been programming this project for a while and I've realised that I should test the online mode of the game.

This game is like a mini-soccer game. You play maches 2 vs 2, but only the player can be controlled, not the keeper. I have created 3 modes:
 - Friendly.
 - Tournament.
 - Online mode.

The beta version only contains the online mode.

Used technology
C++ and SFML, of course. In the latest 2.0 build.

I still have to build it for linux.

Move - Arrow Keys
Jump - RCtrl.

You can see the user ranking on the web or in game.

Important: For router/NAT users, it's recommended to open 55001 TCP port when the game creates a server automatically. Anyway, it's posible to connect to other games without doing it (if the opponent has openned the port, of course). I'll make an option to change the port soon.

I would like to get any type of feedback. Latency in online games is a issue, and I have tu ensure that the game is well synchronized. I haven't programmed any prediction techniques, but I'll have to do in the future.

I still have a lot of things to do, but I'll try to stay online to play against new users. By the way, there is server info in the right-bar of my blog.





Network / NAT punch-through (hole punching)
« on: October 29, 2012, 03:14:24 am »
Hi all, it has been a while...

I'm coding the network part on my soccer style game. The game goes well when playing on LAN, this is not a lantency issue anyway.

I've done simple system wich allows to find and play a match automatically. If the client doen't find any playable match, it starts a server waiting for other player. It uses a database etc...
I don't want to complicate my work on doing a virtual UDP connection, so I've used TCP.

The problem is that servers behind a router can't be reached by clients, the server owner must open ports on his router using NAT. I want to avoid this trying to implement NAT punch-through technique. I know how to do it for UDP, but I'm using TCP. Is it the same algorithm? Any ideas?

You should create a website and offer your servies there. You could make a category for your projects and guarantee the level of your offer.
Also, I think that the price is a bit expensive but that's your choice.

General / Re: Why tile map over 1 large picture?
« on: April 19, 2012, 10:05:08 pm »
It's just because you can save maps represented by lightweight files. A large image file is bigger than a text file with a few bytes(or KB).
For speed people recomend to draw tiles in a RenderTexture once, and then draw it every loop.

Sorry about my pour post, im writing from my smartphone
