Right,that's my post cherry popped; my forum virginity vanquished; my... Nah, that's it.
Howdy cats, I've been lurking for a while, casually perusing the forums soaking up as much info as possible before *gulp* taking the plunge and posting.
I'm more of an artist than a programmer but I get such a buzz when something works (and looks good!).
And so... On to the magic! Or not, as the case most definately is.
I've been working on a homage to Portal, one of my favourite games, in anticipation of Portal 2.
Before you say it: yes, it's been done. I've played the Flash version too, but I thought it was a rather joyless affair which had none of Portal's personality and didn't hold my attention past the third level. That said - respect to who ever made it! I guess that it was some "proper" coding.
Here's my first efforts... http://dl.dropbox.com/u/19583524/AAT005.exe
Looks pretty (compared to my previous Game Maker efforts) but that's about it!
Space is jump, N key and M key fire portals (that don't work as yet).
I sure could use some help with implementing the portal maths; I could post the cap but I wanted to register some interest first. I've read the "Protal maths" (sic) thread and played with Davo's cap (which is cool) but twisting my melon trying to use it with my layout as is.
I realise this may be in the wrong place as it's basically an introduction
and a plea for help
masquerading as a discussion
I have other problems
But that's enough for now, phew... I'm spent.
Oh, hang on. Discussion thread: Anyone else made a portal puzzler?
