Ignore if you don’t have a basic knowledge in code.
Not much done graphically on RuneTale the past few days. Mostly behind the scenes code changes and additions. Also, found a pretty cool way to save object states.
I have a SaveGame() event that fires whenever the game is saved. In each object you can interact with that is able to be saved, I have an object identifier and a key. When the delegate fires, all the objects save their own states. Objects individually load their states from the save upon game re-launch.
Besides that, I’ve also discovered a pretty cool method to encrypt save data. I’m expecting data miners to crack into the game upon release, so I’m leaving easter eggs and secrets everywhere.
Speaking of, RuneTale will have a hybrid save system. Some parts saved in a file like Undertale for the sake of being like Undertale. Other parts will be more… secure.
Pretty much all there is to update right now, see you guys in the next one!
So far the entire engine has been running really smoothly with only a few bugs here and there that were easily fixed.
Refining performance and making sure the game runs smoothly is top-priority right now, as I want the game to run at a smooth 150+ FPS. An easy task at the present, but I want to make sure that nothing in the future gets in the way of that. As long as I’m smart about how I code this thing, there will be no problems whatsoever.
Secondly, I’m currently figuring out exactly what enemies should exist back in the time of Chara and Asriel. Who exactly would attack you down there? Welp, my job to figure it out.
I think that’s it for now, but I’ll be sure to post more updates soon.
Remember, if you’d like to contact me, you can do so HERE.
Here’s a small .gif showing a few things.
Next to show is the battle system! Stay tuned. c:
