This game has promise if he can make all that happen it will go well.
Wandering Student ಠ_ಠThey. Zan-Mgt is a team of 6 siblings working together.
Mentorlooks interesting, will definitely pick it up if all those promises come true.
Wandering Student ಠ_ಠUpdated. R 1 W 3 is out. News and Download.
The Raddest Pokemon EverI don't think my laptop even has a pixel shader. Anyone know if it's a requirement at all?
Mentorcant seem to get it to work :/ will try a few more things..
The Raddest Pokemon EverAaand crash on startup. Even got the distros and everything. DARN YOU PIXEL SHADER 2.0!!!
Wandering Student ಠ_ಠI can't get it to work. >:/ it says XNA isn't working or something.
I don't like it too much. Are there multiplayer servers or something?
the tiger is our mission statement
Wandering Student ಠ_ಠAs of right now, there is no multiplayer. there isn't much of anything, really, since its only a grand total of 3.5 weeks old. I encourage you to come back in a few months. they plan to have release 2 in about 5 months 1 week.
Oh, so that's why I didn't like it. Ok. -wanders off somewhere else.-
the tiger is our mission statement
I couldn't even get it to launch but I can wait to see if it becomes playable for me in the future.
Wandering Student ಠ_ಠwhat error message did you get?
None which is the kicker. Just program crash message.
Make sure you've downloaded and installed the XNA Framework 4.0 and .NET 4.0.
Ok now I know why. It now uses shader 3.0 That was really stupid move. Means fewer people can play the game now.
Wandering Student ಠ_ಠThey're still working on that, unfortunately...
The Raddest Pokemon EverNew video is up, demonstrating the Center-of-Mass system.
Interesting bit I dropped a post on their Face book commenting on that. I got comment pack post change that they agreed they lost too many potential players and reverted XNA back a version. So including me a bunch of others must have commented on it.

The Raddest Pokemon EverCan't wait for Thrusters to finally be implemented next week (hopefully). Bigger boats in Minecraft ain't got nothin' on spaceships. Can't wait for a new computer, either, though that's much more difficult.
rrrrrrrrrSeeing that video (late, I know), I see the comment below where they need a commentary on what's going on, and... wow. Are there really that many people who don't know what a center of mass is?
Sakamoto demands an explanation for this shit.
The Raddest Pokemon EverWeek 7 gave us thrusters, and Week 9 (hopefully tomorrow) will feature a big backend and UI overhaul. Also, forums!
???hmm.. will try out when i next switch over to windows. also i thought 3.0 shaders came standard with any computer with a graphics card from the past 6 years.
