This very first construct is extra a showcase of the engine than a game. It’s so much of work simply placing the framework collectively to have a operating system, in order that’s the majority of the work that went into this construct. Adding the juicy content will probably be a precedence beginning now.
Speaking of timing: I delved into the abyss of tutorials of “how to optimize your game” and managed to repair a couple of issues with animations stuttering at the begin of the combat. Now every little thing ought to move easily from the get-go. Another factor I’m not so blissful with although is the filesize the game is rising to. With so many characters and every having 2 units of sprites (clothed and nude), the quantity of sprites I actually have to incorporate into the game is skyrocketing. The game is now already greater than the completed model of Fallen Angel, and I’m not even a third-way executed with the animations. At the present tempo the game is rising, I wouldn’t be shocked if the ultimate model is over 2GB. Not positive methods to deal with that problem. There are methods to scale back filesize for tons of sprites that look comparable in some ways, but when I actually have to manually edit 100-200 sprites per transfer I add I’ll actually go insane and the game won’t ever be executed. But possibly 2GB isn’t so dangerous on this time and age. Let’s see the place we’ll find yourself.
Another few issues I added/modified for this update: I moved the reset-button away from the R-Button to F1, so hopefully it received’t intervene with anybody’s most well-liked button-layout. I additionally added an choice to vary how briskly the Oil/Mud disappears. With the “Average” choice being 100%, you may as well select “None” 0%, “Very Slow” 25%, “Slow” 50%, “Fast” 200% and “Very Fast” 300%. And I modified the timing of the seize so infinite seize shouldn’t be potential anymore. If it doesn’t work, let me know. I didn’t have a lot time to playtest as we speak, however I wished to get the Demo out since my weekend will probably be fairly busy.
The focus for now will shift again to including tons and plenty of strikes/animations, so we will arrive at the sexier components sooner than later.
Let me know what you’re thinking that, or should you encounter any bugs and so on. drop a remark.
Thank you for assist!
Unlike the final demo, which was 100% solely about animations, this demo has a combined precedence. First of all, so far as animations go, the first set of grapples for Kristina at the moment are completed. She has 3 strikes she will be able to execute after grabbing her opponent (whereas standing). The first I made was – of course – the German Suplex. A game with wrestling strikes can’t be with out. In addition to that, she additionally has a Powerbomb and a Lifted Stranglehold.
The addition of the grapples additionally made it essential to implement the counter-system (which was the different precedence for this demo). After grabbing an opponent, Kristina now has the alternative of 3 directional inputs: left for German Suplex, Up for Stranglehold, Right for Powerbomb. Her opponent, whereas being grabbed, can even press one of these 3 buttons. If she selected the identical as Kristina, the transfer will get countered. If not, the transfer will get executed. For clarification, the path may also be briefly displayed after each gamers made their alternative.
With these strikes now in the game, all 3 varieties of assaults I envisioned can be found (no less than for one character): Strikes, Throws and Submissions. The Strikes, effectively, these have been in for some time. For the Throws we now have the German Suplex and the Powerbomb, for Submission we now have the Stranglehold. To give every one of these it’s distinctiveness, I acquired rid of the easy damage-counter that was in the game, and as a substitute added a Defense- and Damage-Meter.
The harm your character takes is visualized with a white body-silhouette, which turns pink the extra harm you are taking. The extra harm you will have taken, the tougher it is going to be to free your self from a submission or sex assault (these come a lot later, although). It accumulates slowly over the course of the match, however doesn’t regenerate. For now, the match ends when a personality has collected 250 everlasting harm.
The defence of your character is visualized by a protect. This represents your short-term capability to address submissions and sex assault. Basically, in case your protect is full, you’re resistant to any submission or sex assault, if it’s empty, you’ll should wrestle so much (which will get tougher with extra everlasting harm you’ve taken). The protect regenerates over time, and totally after every submission or sex-attack.
Strikes deal so much of harm to defence, however low everlasting harm, whereas submissions deal no harm to defence however so much of everlasting harm. Throws are someplace in between.
The abstract: on this demo, you now can use the seize button to seize your opponent, and when you are holding her, assault with the assault button.

You can change the Debugging mode on/off with TAB, urgent R resets the game. For now solely “Free Battle” is out there, with every character having 50 HP. Once a personality goes all the way down to 0 HP, you’ll be immediately teleported again to the Select-Screen. This is clearly only a placeholder mechanic and will probably be modified very quickly. The buttons for Grab, Sex and Pause don’t do something at the second.
There is so much of work that went into making this, however that doesn’t but translate into a lot gameplay at the second. You’ll almost certainly see every little thing this demo has to provide in a matter of minutes, so maintain that in mind. Like I mentioned earlier, it’s extra a showcase of the engine and offers you an concept on what to anticipate in the subsequent updates. Now that the primary framwork is executed, the following updates ought to be extra content-focused.
