    Actually, we don't have to make it up at the end of the year. How they are handling this is by giving optional work and saying yo gonna get dumb over de weekend you dumb boi so you should do some of dat work

    I would do it, they might check the work when you come back. If not, it's still good practice if you do it.

  • #127 ✎ 225 thou_fatGAMER12 Video Games I like to play video games! Hobbies Drawing I like to draw! Hobbies Intermediate Programmer I can make programs, but I still have trouble here and there. Programming Strength Ight so I am having trouble with stuff. Naw dip. But anyways, the problem arises when i run this code; IF SLOT1WAIT==TRUE AND SLOT1==1 THEN XDFC1=XDFC1-14.5 Some context: "SLOT1WAIT, SLOT2WAIT, ETC" are the names for a variable that tells weather or not the plant had been placed and needs to wait before planting another. The reason I have "SLOT1, SLOT2, ETC" is for knowing which plant the seed slot is equivalent to. If it is 1, then it is a peashooter. If it is 2, then it is a sunflower. Etc. And finally XDFC is equal to 73. It is how long the sprite of the faded out seed slot would be. Ya know. After you plant a plant, the background goes from light to dark and slowly goes back right to left? Well I am recreating that. Basically, XDFC is the length of that sprite SPSET 55, RANDOM NUMBER, RANDOM NUMBER, XDFC, 50 And depending on which plant it is, it will get done faster. In this case it is supposed to take about 5 seconds. But, when I run this it doesn't work. Also the reason why they are numbered is so it can be easier when i finally do make the choose your seeds thing. It makes it easier to number them. So uh yea need some help i can't really find what is wrong. Also it isn't when XDFC < 0. This is because I made an if statement about that as well. Posted Edited by thou_fatGAMER12
  • #128 ✎ 225 thou_fatGAMER12 Video Games I like to play video games! Hobbies Drawing I like to draw! Hobbies Intermediate Programmer I can make programs, but I still have trouble here and there. Programming Strength Alright, so I haven't really been able to get much work done over a span of time, so much time that any other person on this site I know would be able to finish it with weeks to spare. So, to get my self more in line, and to inform people of any small updates, I have created a list of todos to shape the game to into what it should be in the end. TUTORIAL Gameplay (Sun counter, Sun collection, Sun touch data, Seed Selection, Plant Animations, Plant functions, Multiple Sprites on screen at once, Winning scenario, Losing Scenario, Seeds costing sun, Seed Slot Waiting Time, Zombie Randomization, Zombie Animations, Zombie Death, Plants Being Eaten, Data Reset, Shovel, Different Orders Of Plants, Random Drops Of Coins, Touch Data, How Far In The Level, Saving, Exiting, Top Screen Usage) Sprites Sound (Sun, Peas, "Brainz..", Flag Sounds, Ready Set Plant, The zombies Are Coming, Actual Music) ANCIENT EGYPT Sprites (New Plants, Lawn, Ancient Egypt Zombies, Map, etc) Gameplay (Saving, Map After Title Screen, Options On Plants and Order, Coins, Gems, Shops, Keys, The Travel Log, Almanac) Sound (Bloomerang's boomerangs, Bonk Choy Bonk, Music) I am also starting to wonder if I should move to Homebrew as it makes things so much easier in terms of assets and sound, along with looking much nicer and being more accessible, so now I have one poll. If you guys say no and to keep on SB, I also have another poll revolving around the top screen 1st poll, should I just move it to Homebrew (basically cancelling it on smilebasic but moving to a better resource) Posted Edited by thou_fatGAMER12
  • #129 ✎ 98 kantackistan I'm a little confused... Didn't we just close a thread because it was promoting a project that blatantly infringed on copyright? In fairness I haven't read this entire thread, so I could be totally off base. But at a glance it looks like you're trying to use characters/content that don't belong to you. Posted

    Agreed, we shouldn't be encouraging full game ports that will be posted to the site. Not only are they going to be removed when SmileBoom inevitably gets a DMCA, it's not exactly the best way to go about things. Making your own sprites, no matter the quality, is always going to be superior to stealing assets from other people. Record out.

  • #131 ✎ 98 kantackistan Even if you drew the sprites yourself, so long as it's a sprite of a character you don't own, that's enough to cause trouble. If you were doing a parody of the game, you could claim it fell under parody law. But even then SmileBoom would still have every right to remove it. But you can't copyright the rules of a game. So there's nothing to stop you from making a near clone that uses your own characters and designs. That would technically be legal and allowed. Posted Edited by kantackistan

    Oh i didn't remember that. Guess I am the most idiotic person on the face of the earth. I mean I knew it was going to most likely end up being personal, but I thought maybe there could be a small sliver of hope... And that's if I ever finished. So, Damn it now I have to make it different so it counts as a fan game.Wait... Let me guess... That also still isn't legal, is it? Law Sucks Sometimes

  • #133 ✎ 98 kantackistan There's nothing to stop you from designing your own characters/concepts that still fit the gameplay you desire. If you think about it, isn't that why Plants vs. Zombies even exists in the first place? It certainly wasn't the first tower defense game ever made, and yours could be next. But unfortunately yes, even if the law didn't prevent you from stealing characters, SmileBoom certainly will. Posted

    No that isn't why they created the game... It was just random ideas George Fan had. What is kinda odd... Is that back when I created my og sprites, they got pass smileboom checking it. And that is the sprites, not code... Odd. Anyways I understand what your getting at.

I probably sound like an annoying child, but seriously, why me? Or are you guys just going around looking for threads to end? Posted

    Do you ever realize how fast key verification is? Nobody has any reason to believe the keys are checked by a human upon submission; we can only reasonably assume it's just an automated system to filter out the most obvious offenses and for the rest, nobody even bothers looking until a report comes in. SmileBoom doesn't have the manual review resources of a company like YouTube, for example.

  • #138 ✎ 98 kantackistan I hope this didn't come across as mean, I'm mostly just trying to save you from getting your project removed down the line. I know how much it sucks to put your heart and soul into something and then have it effectively deleted. I'll be honest, I haven't been following every thread around here... Didn't mean to pick on just you. But anyone on SmileBASIC who's trying to use a character or universe some other company made? Expect the same fate ... But if you are still interested in making a grid-based tower defense game, I'm sure there's a bunch of clever ideas you could use instead of plants and zombies. Maybe you could... build Snowmen? And they could throw snowballs at a bunch of incoming Firey demons who are trying to take over the Earth. Maybe you upgrade your snowman by stacking more snowballs for its body. Or give them different hats for different abilities. You could call it Hell Froze Over or something. Posted

    I will still probably work on it as my subconscious is always nagging at me to do anything special in my life and I for some reason always find a need to go on smilebasic... But understood.

    All the more reason to make something that's completely your own! Something new, that isn't copying someone else's IP. There's nothing more special than coming up with a new game. Bring something into the world that you can't experience anywhere else.
