  1. Photoshop as Game Editor

    Hi my HTML5 Gamedev fellows. A few months ago I started using a very interesting workflow / toolset in developing my games. Basically I use a Photoshop Generator to automatically do magic things Automatically generates spritesheets of all sprites included in the PSD Document Automatically generate bitmap fonts of the fonts I use in the PSD Document Automatically generates a JSON-File with infos on each layer (Position, Size, Frames, State, Special Properties) Everything in realtime on the fly (without the need to save) In my (custom engine) I can load the exported files and voilá everything is in the game and I can start adding functionality to it. I've used that in every game since then and I really love it. I've also implemented that the game can connect to Photoshop Generator (in Debug Mode) - so I can update assets and GUI stuff in RealTime. I also connect the Game to Tiled (but only via file watch so far) to update level geometry/design in real time. I've put together a short video to show it to you: Here is an in-depth article I wrote: Photoshop as a game editor. Do you think this would be of interest to other devs. At the moment it only is compatible with my own engine, but I think it would be very easy to write loaders for HTML5 Frameworks/Engines.
  2. Hi guys I am new here and so far i was using GUI game engines to create games.From all back-end testings so far that i done on various programming languages and scripting languages i realised that html5 is best solution for my game development.Now i decided to ditch game engines and learn actual coding in some of the frameworks so my code could be much more cleaner,run faster,have better optimization and quality of the games would overall be better.But this is not just for games,but also for personal reasons because i like to be properly educated instead of using most convenient tools. Now i am interested in learning some js framework that has good community support and tutorials,that is easy and fast on learning and performance and if possible to implement in Ubuntu SDK. Also i am mainly using GNU/linux and one of the reasons why i would like to use js is to be mobile and OS independent.but from all OS so far Ubuntu SDK seems like a decent solution for cordova runtime,i tried to use it with phaser but i did not succeed to render cordova runtime instead it was in plain web view. Now overall it does not have to be Ubuntu SDK,but i am interested in HTML5 framework that i can port(wrap) to desktop mainly(mobile would be good to). Any ideas what's the best and why,please write down below,it would help me a lot. Regards
  3. UPDATE: Positions are still available as we continue to grow. This post will update when we are no longer accepting applications! Our team is looking for experienced HTML5 developers who are able to join our team immediately as remote freelancers. Duties will range from creating mini games, to full HTML5 games (using Phaser) in addition to simpler conversions. With this in mind, we need a developer who is dedicated, hard working, extremely knowledgeable and who takes pride in his or her product. The position will start with a few simple minigame projects, and has plenty of room to grow for the right candidate into more work, including full html5 games, conversions and more. Payment is based on hourly work, with payment delivered each week. Strong English speaking and communication is mandatory! You may be asked to work in some, or all of the following areas. Please note that you do not have to have experience in all of the areas, and that is ok! Flash: The native files and file assets you may be converting are in .fla format. Slack: With all projects, we do require a very open communication dialogue. We use Slack for our team conversations. HTML5: You will be converting and/or creating HTML5 games for mobile, tablet, and all platforms. Git Repository: Experience with GIT is a plus, but can train for this. Phaser: Phaser knowledge is a must! You should demonstrate a mastery with all of it’s features, and have titles in your portfolio using the framework. Additional Skills: Experience in other languages, libraries and tools will be useful, so please include any additional skills you may have in your initial contact with us.Our projects all require precise skills, a quick turnaround time, and an extremely high quality product. We concentrate on polish such as tweens, particles and little details that give life to each game. Having an eye for game design and well polished end results are critical! The three biggest things we look for are excellent communication skills, the ability to not only develop exactly what is given to you, but also contribute new ideas and creative thinking, and finally timeliness. You must be available between 11am to 8pm EST Monday through Friday. Our workload is heavy, so being available during these hours are critical! Please submit your portfolio and hourly wage requirements to jobs @, thanks!
  4. We are a mobile editor in the creation of automotive tools, as part of our expansion we are looking for Phaser developers, to help with brand new casuals game and to build projects as a full time job and to boost our team. For this specifical role we need someone who is used to keeping a clean code-base. You'll understand the need to maintain tidy commented code, exposing and designing a sensible API, and use GIT methodology Availability and communication is key, this sort of work doesn't lend itself well to part-time freelancers I'm afraid (i.e. those just working evenings), or those looking to multi-task themselves with other clients at the same time, as our projects are too demanding for that. What you will do with us: - We propose two idea for a (very simple arcade) casual game each month. - The developer creates a prototype than we validate ( the canvas and HTML is all standard in our git everything is already standard) - Then we provide with graphics and art elements -Developer are integrating the elements the skins for the same prototype that has been created. If your interested and suit our requirements please send us: -Your resume at our service -Availability -Contact references with name/company -Game developped We want to build personal relationships with professional developers, therefore absolutely NO AGENCIES. Agency emails will be flagged as spam in Gmail.
  5. I have map what I made in 'Tiled' this map have two layers 'firstFlor' and 'firstFloorBlock' and mape have a name 'map1' and for make this map I used three tilesets png with names tile1 tile2 tile3 Than I load those stuff in preload.js like a'map1', 'maps/map1.json', null, Phaser.Tilemap.TILED_JSON);'tile1', "maps/tile1.png");'tile2', "maps/tile2.png");'tile3', "maps/tile3.png");And here is the point, I have no idea how to load those things in game in create function map ='map1'); map.addTilesetImage('tile1'); map.addTilesetImage('tile2'); map.addTilesetImage('tile3'); layer = map.createLayer('firstFloor'); layer.resizeWorld(); layer.wrap = true; var layer2 = map.createLayer('firstFloorBlock');But is a pice of scrap... and not working at all
  6. Hello everyone, This game is still under development but I would like to ask for your opinion on how it's going. It was entirely developed from scratch using .NET (for server) and HTML5/JS (for UI). Try it here: Features to add: Multiserver automation (one server supports about 50 users)Team scoringCapture the flag mode Things to fix: Glitch when crossing bordersImprove TCP messages sentGet's slow if you switch to another window (IE only?!) Thank you.
  7. Greetings folks. I'm putting together a little book(let)/eBook about getting into video game development as part of a college project. It will be aimed at those unsure about what game development is all about and where to get started. The likes of school leavers wondering what to do next, those wanting a career change, hobbyists and those who don't have access to video game specific education. Basically, if you already consider yourself a game developer, this is going to be the book that you will wish you had when you were a kid. The book is not going to be a monotonous grind through wall after wall of text like I see in every other book that tries to explain this topic. I find those very dull and can be a chore to read through, and I believe they do not really reflect the creativity and fun of game development. There is a book that I love called HTML & CSS, Jon Ducket, that is amazing in how it presents information to the reader in an interesting and easily digestible way, that I will be drawing a lot of inspiration from. If you haven't read it, it's definitely worth a look. I don't proclaim to be an authority on anything, and am looking for input and contributions from more experienced practitioners. Things like: Valuable lessons that you have learned that you think anyone wanting to get into game development should know.Challenges you have had to overcomeThings that you wish you knewWhat expectations to have. How does the reality compare to what you imagined?I understand that a lot of this has been asked a hundred times before, so if you know of any existing articles or posts that stand out to you, let me know. Don't be afraid that something might sound stupid or obvious or condescending. To someone who knows very little, anything you say could mean a lot. Anyone is welcome to pitch in. I'm looking for input from seasoned veterans, indie start-ups, '9 to 5'ers, freelancers, anyone with something valuable to share. Please keep the target audience in mind with your replies. Think about what they would want to find. Sources and examples will be much appreciated as this will help me when checking/validating any info before I add it. PLEASE critique anything. I'm quite thick-skinned when it comes to taking feedback, so pile it on however you feel appropriate. I will be selecting what I believe to be the most relevant pieces of info to add to the book, so not everything that gets posted here will be included. I intend for this to be a quick read, finish-able in maybe a few days of casual flicking through. It is meant to be an overview and introduction. Many other books cover specifics should a reader develop an interest. Know of some exceptional resources for learning about more specific topics that I could direct readers to? Let me know. The book will likely be made public domain for anyone to use however they please as I do not plan on commercializing it. Early versions will be made viewable as soon as I can for feedback. Thanks in advance for any responses.
  8. Hi guys, I am a mobile developer and I am currently working on a multiplatform game engine. In general the idea behind is: "One code, many platforms" The engine should be ready by the end of the year. It will allow users ultra fast coding for many platforms such as Android, iOS, Mac, Linux, Windows (PS4 in the future) with Python or C++. Meanwhile I have published a WebGL based web version on my engine working on Safari, Chrome & Mozilla (javascript). What do you think about this engine? What are you general expectations? What can I do better? How can I make coding faster, better experience for devs? Free engine downloadable here: Some examples here: It would be awesome to hear some feedback from you guys! Take care! PS: Use arrows to drive a Ferrari example:)

  12. Performance in HTML5 Games

    Hello guys! Well i'm a Web Developer front-end based, and i'm starting to learn more javascript to start dev my first HTML5 Game, and i have this Question about performance in mind: ~Native Apps can use hardware acceleration because they have more access to device, can use video card or something else, the graphic/performance quality of ipad games are an example We can get some hardware acceleration developing an HTML5 Game? we can dev some game like Eternity Warriors 2 of ipad or something with sprites like King Of Fighters series using HTML5/JS/CSS3?~ I'm really interested, someone can talk a bit about this?

  14. Hi, my jet in my html5 game dev. is blinking really fast -- I'm assuming it's probably my coordinates that are off, but I'm not too sure; I've never had that happen before. Thanks!
