Save our chicks!!! Duke Nukem and Hulk Side-by-Side
« on: July 25, 2013, 06:09:46 pm »
The aliens are back!!! Stronger than ever before Dukes weapons are useless and so HULK has to help Duke to save his chicks!
Gameplay:
You are HULK. Duke is following you and warns you if one of the brains steals a chick.
Destroy the enemies on the ground they hurt you and destroy the brains, but:
Brains are only destroyable if they are stealing a chick!

The hulk has, numerous times, jumped entire oceans and even into space. There is no end to his strength!

yeah Jump is one of the things left to do.
In the first vid I did jumping by an initial impulse and then adding gravity->multiplicating frametime aso.
That was ugly, as frametime changes HULK jumps on the moon XD
In the 2. vid theres a max humpheight - also ugly :)

I always find real world physics work best, no matter how simple you want to keep things.

What I like to do for jumping in my platformers (if your interested):
    -Set a 'Trajectory' value for jumping - I use a 2D vector for this.
    -Set an 'Air State' and 'Ground State' for the character. This controls whether the character is in the air or not.
    -When a jump action occurs, apply a large value to the characters Trajectory.y (the higher the number the highter the character will jump), then Set the characters State to Air State.
    -In the characters update check if the character is in the Air state, if they are, compute the characters new Trajectory. my normal formula is 9.82m/s^2, which ends up as Trajectory.y += time_passed * gravity; time_passed is the time since my last frame.
    -Then update the characters position based on the trajectory. Location.y += Trajectory.y * time_passed;
    - Once the character collides with the ground, simply set the state back to ground and reset the Trajectory.y back to 0.

This is basically all I ever do and it always turns out great for me. Hope it can help you.

Quick Edit: I should mention that the initial Trajectory.Y would be a negative value (like -200) in this case.

Ooh yes->thats absolutely "real" real world physics. (tnx 4 the minitut)
The point is:
I dont know if jumping will stay in the game.
-It might be handy for crashing enemies in Mario-Style, but that would be a 3. attack
1. is thunderclap for pushing away the mine
2. is a punch to kill the other enemies.

-jump might also be handy to kill a kidnapping brain in the air (combined with in-air clap)
