[quote="deadeye":45m2vyzf][quote="Lost my Keys":45m2vyzf][quote="deadeye":45m2vyzf]Nobody ever said doing isometric was easy?
Also... why are there six of these threads at once? Isn't that overkill? You could have had these run, you know... one at a time
Cause I got excited with the 6th one, besides, never could wait.[/quote:45m2vyzf]
Aside from the YC now being taken over by these threads I'm concerned that you won't get as many people participating in these as if you had waited to post them one at a time. Now people are going to pick and choose one or two instead of giving them all a shot.
Also, in all honesty some of your challenges (like this one) are really not "easy." Nobody has taken on isometric and won because isometric is hard to do. Yes, I can confidently say that Construct is capable of it, but the math involved is more than most are willing to struggle with.
And you're asking people to make AI for things like beat-em-ups and stuff for a 2d brawler or a full-blown roguelike with battles and everything. Those aren't "easy," they're practically full games. The mouse challenge was good because it was a nice little logic puzzle that you could get concise answers to.[/quote:45m2vyzf]
Ok, well, delete them then. Only did them as a bit of fun for people but if they're going to cause trouble, get rid of them, I could only delete two of them so you'll have to get the others.
[quote:45m2vyzf]Also, when are we going to see your examples of how these challenges are done? It seems only fair that the challenger show what he's capable of
I'm an artist Jim, not a programmer, lol. I can't do them, wouldn't claim that I could either. If I'd picked things I could do, then it wouldn't be much of a challenge for anyone (and people would complain about that then too lol). Would be great if I could do them cause it looks like fun and I'd get to show off. But alas it's not PHP and that's the only programming language of any kind that I know.
So yeah, get rid of them, though keep #6 cause I like the theory of how that would work, and since I like the top down games, the solutions for that one would be useful to me too.
The others I put up because I've seen people asking about them, and figured they would be helpful to other users. But if I have to choose, then #6 should be left
