Adobe Flash Actionscript Videogame 2D RGB XYZ Normal Map for Collision Bounce Direction

Red is X, Blue is Y, and Green is Z (the Green axis is not displayed here but is reserved to be used to calculate ground elevations above any given floor (buildings, a rollercoaster, bumps on the ground). I plan, if system performance allows, to use the alpha channel to represent pixel “hp”, the life of an obstacle’s pixel.

The 45 degree chisel on top of each wall, once clamped through code, indicates the angle of each pixel of an obstacle. By calculating an object’s translating angle in relation to the wall pixel angle, you get a mathematically precise bounce angle. While most collision techniques involves using a rough representation of an object, here in Illustrator, I can draw whichever top view map scheme i need (curves, lines, complexe boolean) on a very large scale, in one file, update my illustrator object in Maya, render again, update my images in flash and publish.

Another noticeable advantage to my system is that projectiles, for instance, draw the inward damage of an attack both on the draw map and the collision map. When destroying something, the hidden “broken map” copies its damaged pixels over the “live map”, using different techniques depending on the weapon. Applying destructions to the collision map was a great challenge as I had to find a way to draw the inward damage WITH the normals rainbow, but without the use of a render. I found great ways and made some by automation in Photoshop.

Steve Hutchison, designer de La trappe à fromage - Fromagerie, épicerie fine et traiteur

La fromagerie la Trappe à fromage, une #épicerie fine qui offre des bières de micro-brasserie et un service de traiteur. Commerce établi à #Gatineau dans la région de l’#Outaouais.

Graphiste: Steve Hutchison

En mars 1995, la fromagerie « La Trappe à fromage » voit le jour à Gatineau. Messieurs Gilles Joanisse et Mario Hébert en sont les fondateurs. Au tout début, nous étions situé au 514 boul. Maloney Est. C’est en octobre 1998 que nous nous établissons au 200 rue Bellehumeur. Et neuf ans plus tard, une nouvelle succursale ouvre ses portes au 114 boul. St-Raymond.

Notre savoir-faire existe depuis maintenant quatre générations. La famille Hébert est fière de compter parmi elle des fromagers de père en fils. D’Albert, diplômé en 1925, jusqu’à Mario Hébert qui gradua en 1982. Les fromages de Donat Hébert, grand-père de Mario, furent déjà primés à plusieurs reprises dans les années 1960. Mais sa plus belle récompense est venue de son fils Gilles Hébert (père de Mario). Ce dernier accéda à la profession de maître fromager en 1961. Les Hébert ont su transmettre leur passion du fromage de génération en génération.

Nous transformons sur place le lait de notre région, tous les jours de la semaine. Nous produisons une quinzaine de variétés différentes de fromages pour le plaisir de tous.

Actuellement, la Trappe à fromage emploie environ une quarantaine d’employé(e)s. Nous distribuons nos fromages partout en région.

ActionScript 2.0 Inventory, Items, Item Mixer, Music Mixer & Music Debug Panels

This shows my inventory, mixer and music debug panel. Everything related to inventory, characters, objects, is managed in an efficient pipeline between excel and flash. This setup makes the bridge between game design and programming seamless. The mixer can create an item out of a mix of inventory items. This also shows the equip screen, with only assignable slot available by use. Some items have more than one use and can be combined in one or another slot. Again, this is all excel managed, making it also very easy to balance the game at any time in a familiar and user-friendly setup.

Next, you can notice how music is/will be handled. For now, I have 3 sets of 4 tracks (lead, bass, drum, kick) whose volume shifts with the character mood. This is a debug console but I included presets to be able to adjust the track values of certain events (party, chase, fight, fear, etc) based on 8 combined emotions. This will later on affect character performance and interaction.

The end of the video shows what actually loads, unloads as you move through the map. This map system is all by me also. Since everything is destructible on this map except the ground, tiles that are empty of obstacle from the start of the game are managed differently, and if everything there is to destroy on an occupied tile is gone, this tile becomes treated as an empty tile. Those can be easily cloned as they have no property and they also have no hidden collision map. Another challenge is the fact that a maximum of 8 characters are always present on the map and act real time, interacting with their surroundings as the player would. This is voluntary and necessary to the mystery-murder aspect of the game. So, whatever tile management the character needs, the npc’s need as well.

Steve Hutchison used #Photoshop, #Illustrator, #Fusion, #Flash, #Premiere, #SoundForge, #AbletonLive, #Apophysis, #Cubase and #Maya.
