Squeebs, a 2d comic mmorpg
« on: June 09, 2009, 02:52:23 pm »
Hi, i'd just like to show you all this mmorpg i'm making.

I choose to use SFML as it allows me to dynamically load sprites on runtime, which is a must for my program~!!!

you see it features a dynamic updater that updates files from a site so that all the game content is kept up to date whilst the game is running~!!

the site for the game is: http://www.squeebs.net

the FORUM for the game is:http://www.squeebs.net/forums

its a comical game that I hope will tread new waters in mmorpg gaming.

i'm only 17 and the only developer on our team so development is slow ^.^

please, tell me what you think!!!

I can be contacted at dinocool300@hotmail.com if you are interested in possibly helping out!

I'm wowwed just by the startup.  Seems very interesting.  
However, (this could just be me) but the website is sometimes unresponsive and right now the game is "loading" with 10 files to go.  

But other than that this is great!  

I wouldn't mind helping depending on what you need.

When visiting your website I get "The webpage cannot be found" when I click on info, gallery and downloads.

Awesome wolverine, ironman and pirate sprites! (I mean, those must be the guys)

I know that's hard to be alone on a team.
But be happy! as there are a lot of tools now that didn't exist when I was 17   :D

Thou I recommend that if the game starts to grow, find a fine musician to make you some songs. Music is crucial in games, believe me.

Wow dude.... I wonder if I brought you to SFML.


I could definitely help you out with the Sqeebs project. I fairly experienced with C++ and fairly experienced with SFML.

Hmm... Two seconds after I start the application,  it doesn't respond any more, one CPU core being used to capacity. Isn't Squeebs compatible to Windows Vista?

@Nexus, it is vista compatible if you follow the steps on our forum (just enable run as admin and windows xp sp 2 compatibility)

@e_barroga, put a post on our forums submitting your application so that the other members of our small community can see that your applying to work on the project

@dabo, if it gets stuck at 10 files just rerun and remember if your on vista run as admin with xp sp2 compatibility

To all others, come join our forum!!!!

I'm using xp sp2. I have tried 5-6 times and it always gets stuck with 10 files left and 298 kb downloaded.

Same here, (Well I'm using Windows 7, but if I try compatability mode it actually breaks it more (it doesn't even get that far and says it's loading but pretty much freezes)).

Setting compatibility mode won't help.

Why can't the application at least respond while downloading? And why is it requiring a full processor core? I don't like programs of which I don't know what they're doing, and which don't inform me at all. By the way, after a while my computer got that slow that I had to reset. Not very nice. I don't know if the app is leaking or something.

To be honest, I am not really convinced by Squeebs. Those things should better be fixed soon.

*sigh* the reason it doesn't work in vista is because what he has posted is made in game maker.... this project was made in game maker and i guess he's trying to remake it in sfml.. but claiming that the client on the site is C++/SFML?.... no.

AFAIR Game Maker games are vista compatible if created with the latest version. Also Game Maker executables are much bigger in size.

Yeah. I'm just saying this project used to be in game maker.
I see no SFML in this at all, just HGE and pthread.
This is just a "updater"
