Basically just another tile based game. Haven't quite decided yet where this goes in terms of gameplay. Maybe something in the survival genre, not sure.

Do any of you have some ideas about how to best do level loading from the regular /media folder on mobile?? I'm not done with the level editing yet, but eventually I'm going to load levels from files for the regular game.

Not sure how to do this when it will search in the 'hidden' folder on mobile 'only'?

Hey.

It doesn't search the hidden, or write folder, only......if you crate a folder in the media one called levels it will load all the data from that, unless it can't find the file you ask for, THEN it checks the write folder and loads from there. So for example, the game could have stock levels that load from your folder, then levels the user creates or downloads in the write folder......but it always loads from the default folder first.

Kind of an incremental update only. Saving and loading works fairly fast now. Changed the perspective a bit, offset the camera and cleaned some stuff up.

Have to add spawn points for the player and enemies next and some code that prevents walking over water hahah.

Anyone know how I can do an easier 'save as..' functionality? At the moment the file already needs to exist if I want to allow a user to pick the file using ChooseRawFile. Any tricks?

Its not too important as its mostly just a convenient thing as I am about to make a bunch of levels for my small game.

I use "raw:C:\MyFolder\MyFile.txt" on Windows or "raw:/sdcard/Documents/MyFile.txt" on Android for my goork game...

Thanks Cliff! Yeah, I've decided I'm just going to use the media/levels/ folder I add to my game for now. But from the looks of it, it's only really possible to have a level editor for end users on mobile when they have an sdcard anyway.
I'm aware stuff can be written into the hidden folder, but assuming people would want to play levels created by others it would be a bit tougher. Maybe if I've got time I'd work on a 'level import' function so it can support user created levels / maybe even mods, but doesn't have a high priority for now.

Some progress:





Added a button to switch on / off level editing mode. But should now focus on some more gameplay stuff first I think, before I have to redo entire levels. A bit of a chicken and egg problem I guess.

Some procedural generation in progress now :



Slowly starting to look quite acceptable for the type of game I have in mind.

Some additional character art done. Not sure how this will be added in the final game (playable or not).
