Bug Reports / Name Change Exploit
« on: October 03, 2015, 05:08:33 AM »
Hello devs. I was playing hammerwatch with some real life buddies when they realize that they can change their steam display name then join a game and they won't have their old saved characters but new one with full money and can choose whatever class they want. They realize they can exploit lives with this and bought a bunch of lives then change their names to pick another character and buy the upgrades. I was wondering if this can be fix? It seems that hammerwatch save settings by player name ingame.

The ghost or the vampire? I haven't drew the vampire on any program at the moment (don't got time for it at the moment). It would be harder for me since it would be more complex, but I figured having a sketched out outline would be easier to refer to. I haven't had too much experience with pixel arts to be honest.

I just finished the whole thing + bonus level (on medium, I should play hard mode next time) with friend Paladin me Warlock. Really great, and a lot of "oh shit" moments with the bonus round. Keep up the good work, you should make another one of these maps with the DLC bosses.

*Edit - I've tried both methods to extract the files but nothing seems to happen :( Could be something I'm doing wrong?

Look for the folder with the same name as the parameter you put inside the shortcut for resource extractor. For example if the file was defense.hwm , the folder will be named defense. Check for that and the files are inside.

wait, can you do that with any custom map? it would suck if anybody could just copy paste the hard work i put into my scripts :(

You can but ethically people should ask the author for permission before they do that, especially if they plan to release it. Sometimes some people might need a little hints on how to do things for personal purposes.

Resources / Abandoning Campaign (Dreadmann Mansion)

Due to various circumstances with life, school, and simply a lack of motivation to continue a campaign I was working on, I decided to package it up and release the source files for anyone who want to use it whether it be a template, part of their own maps, etc.

Some of the content are also part of other authors materials so I'll credit them here as well.

I'll also attach 2 pictures of the example of two of the floors that are completed in the campaign I was working on.

By perk, I meant something sort of like this though make it maybe too expensive that player can only buy 1? Unless buying a new one overwrites the other, not sure whether upgrades stack or overwrite in this manner.

I wonder if these could be more ideal for a public game since on public games if someone plays a full campaign, there's no guarantee that someone will beat it fully without crutches because there is always a chance that something will go wrong. I was wondering if a rogue like no respawn until the next floor or until game over will be more ideal for custom maps on public servers. Ideally length of game would be from 15 minutes to an hour. I like longer campaigns too but I prefer playing them with closer friends or more organize groups to avoid wasting too many lives. Well, there’s also solo.

I also thought instead of the typical buy one attribute upgrade, you can also choose mod the tweak folder in the hammerwatch editor to change all the characters starting attributes and skills and also make a vendor that sells perks instead of upgrades to make characters have either more lives, less lives, more damage, less damage, mana, etc. I wonder if that would be a good idea. There aren’t too many custom maps, by wonder if there were a flood of quickly made short custom maps be good or not with a few tweaks on the workshop be a bad idea or a good idea.

I’m not so sure about continuing the campaign I am working on either since I lost motivation. Maybe I aim a bit too high with custom content for larger campaign and such too much.

I know the random dungeon generator someone made in Java can make something fast, but it can be kind of tasteless and it is quite buggy and it needs some sort of maximum value since it’s not foolproof so you can set a value too high and lag the game.

I wonder how a boss fight generator would work if it was not random, but someone pick a premade map and a boss, whether to have lives or no lives, how much money to buy upgrades, what kind of upgrades or perks is available, and what boss to fight or bosses.

Sorry for the long post, I am just brainstorming. I figure out that I can’t commit on a project that’s big too long at the moment balancing school and life without support. I might just release my incomplete campaign source files if I really gave up. I couldn’t work on it too much juggling with multiple things. I figured small-scale stuff might be easier to make but I was wondering whether it was ideal for this game or if anyone is interested.

Will there be a fix for anyone who only uses Intel cards?

I've been working on a sketch I plan to transfer over to pixel art last summer until school came so I got really busy and schedule been hectic. I just finished the sketch today after putting it off for a while. I should make a death animation though.

Ahhh, Serious Sam, I had a great time playing that with friends on split screen. Good luck on your project

I think you might get an idea if you check out the Requiem for Hammerwatch campaign, there's some NPCs that are pushable in the beginning area.
