level 3 was really spammy... i wasted all my missiles trying to destroy a fiery bumble bee that was in my way. their hitbox seems really small. the insta-kill lava is pretty cruel especially with the flames that shoot you directly up. i like meeting the npcs in levels. i thought it was funny that

Hey ducko, I was easily able to make a .exe for your game. Use the launch4j tool I linked before https://sourceforge.net/projects/launch4j/

You will probably want to bundle a JRE. You can bundle one from OpenJDK https://adoptopenjdk.net/

Here's what I made http://hubolhubolhubol.com/Public/MaysQuestBundled.zip my host sucks so it will take a while to download haha

i also h8 dealing with deployment. i can take a look at how we created the jar file for bogus. we both were able to do it from our IDEs after adding our jar dependencies to some window.

there's a classpath env variable that has to be set properly to load the libraries. normally they would be arguments passed when you call java, but i couldnt figure out how to make a jar file that automatically does that. so the classpath vars are set in the actual code at the very beginning :U  it's super jank, but honestly i cant find good documentation about how to build jars anymore. basically everything just says to use maven/ant/other build tool. (actually scala has a build tool ive been learning because it makes compilation significantly faster).

but i hate messing around with deployment in general - all of this stuff i did like a couple years ago and havent touched since. but i guess it's probably about the time to look at it again.

So I didn't bother installing Java.  Just had it loosely downloaded to the desktop.  First I tried running the game via absolute file paths.
Code: [Select]
C:\Users\Wes\Desktop\openjdk-18.0.1.1_windows-x64_bin\jdk-18.0.1.1\bin\java.exe -jar "C:\Users\Wes\Desktop\MaysQuest\mays_quest.jar"That threw an error.
Code: [Select]
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: Can't load library: C:\Users\Wes\Desktop\lib\lwjgl64.dll
But then I ran it directly from the game's folder and it worked.  So I guess the loader/classpath stuff makes assumptions about the working directory.  Not sure if that can be improved or even matters.  Java's loading mechanisms confuse and scare me.

Anyway, the game launched.  Like Hubs said it crashes when you hit New Game, but Load Game works.  Unfortunately I have to go to bed now though so I'll try to share some proper thoughts soon.

Bloody Oracle wanting me to create an account for legacy Java releases.

I'll just grab OpenJDK.

RIP im sorry im making you mess around with oracle

i finished level 2! i found 1 secret gem in the first level and 2 in the second. i thought the first boss was fun. i like the dash mechanic. i really love the cutscenes and music and the cute little npcs as they waddle around. i'm interested to do the monster sealing. my strategy is probably going to be to spam X on them.

i'll play some more tomorrow!

thanks  :apple:  ill look into those errors :U. also yeah i think just spamming was basically what i did when testing. i might end up replacing the mechanic completely at some point because i think the current one is kind of tedious.

whoa is this music original???? It's so cuteyness!!!!!!!!

lol i wish :U, i cant make music to save my life. i used the classic technique of downloading midis from vgmusic.com and then changing the instruments. altho actually i think the level 1 song + may's house are random jazz songs.

haha i hit enter on load game and it works

is that a runtime error for an unmatched case???? why didn't they make that a cool compile error...

it's because im matching on string constants lol. it's jank af but i use strings in a lot of places so that the dialogue system can hook into them.
