Hi,
it appears that I am unbanned from the forum and I would like to start off with a public apology to all the members on the forum. Lets not dwell on that old stuff to much though,. So, my question is, should I continue my game? I'm sure some of you have tried TK out, hell, earlier when I was trying to recover my server, the server rebooted, and I didn't realize the TK server was still in the startup folder. The server notified me that a player was created on my phone, and I went in and shut the server down because I am currently testing the client with a small group of testers. Do you guys think I should continue the game? Not gonna spend all this time coding a new update if people won't play it. O, by the way, for anyone who thinks I'm angry or trying to throw a fit, I'm not. I'm asking a general question, to not waist anyone's time, you the player and me the developer.
thanks

Hi blink wizard, i like TK, and i think you should continue it.

Thumbs up

since apparently it's  just  Another clone I Think you should stop and make something yourself for one.

Thumbs up

So, it looks like you haven't tried the game or you're not even giving a propper responce. Can you at least give an educated reply on how its a clone besides sounds and item names? Because you'll see a lot of people in the sited community with thousands of titles with same ideas etc.

i think the killer is a really good game, keep up the good work Ivan

Hi.
I haven't tried the game yet, so I can't tell how similar it is to other games.
If you enjoy working on it, then keep up the great job. I hope you'll learn a lot from working on the project, so you can make your own games totally from scratch in the future, if that is what you want.
Regarding the server: If you want something stable, I might be able to offer you something.

@blink_wizard I apologize for my rash response but given your previous history on this forum it wouldn't actually surprise me. Could you perhaps put up a link so I can try it?

Thumbs up

i'll give you a link, check your skype

I'll remind everyone that the issue with games being "clones" was very specific to ultrapower.
Maison, the original developer requested that his code not be used to make other games, which is why we had all these shenanigans.

It doesn't matter if the game itself uses similar concepts or even item names so long as the coding is in effect different, though of course the more original a game is, the better.

So, whether to continue work on the game depends entirely if it's using source code from ultra power, or indeed from other, none open source  games, (since I doubt developers of games like redspot want their code rehashed either).
If the answer is yes, then I'd strongly suggest ceasing development, since I'm afraid this really is the last chance here.

If on the other hand it's an original game entirely, then certainly we'd be glad for another original title.

Well, when I tried TK, it really looked like the old UP version where you could walk in all 4 directions, the one before 0.22.54, September/October 2014 or before. Mason can clear the issue himself, or one who has tried that specific version or heard a recording for it.

Thumbs up

i'd love to see that really old version of ultra power lol

Thumbs up

I surely would say, you'd better discontinue it.
I once asked you to take the server up so I can test the game, but it again seems to be a clone of, almost, steals things out of Redspot. Though Redspot is much much better and nobody can doubt it.
Good luck, you might want to start off with offline games first, and then jump to online ones. That way might give you more popularity if you're creative with your ideas. I, myself, still prefer Sam's games than anything else. But it doesn't mean I won't play another game. Currently though, I'm only playing Redspot and STW majorly and daily.

Where can I find this game to try it?

Thumbs up

no thanks to sito, the game is offline. just hope ivan tries to bring it back up

Thumbs up

sito,  has nothing to do with the server being down lol. What ahppened is I was gonna add a max number of items on the server, but went to sleep. To the person who was talking about ultrapower versions, could you post a link to the version with a server? I would be willing to host a server for it, considering that version was rather good.

Thumbs up

i've heard some recordings of old ultra power, but never actually played one. if anyone could post a link, i'd download it in a flash lol

Thumbs up

I do have a recording but I can't exactly post it because my hard drive is not with me at the moment.

Thumbs up

so how long wil it be until the killer server is up?

Thumbs up

Ok so this is the situation. I don't know if I wanna bring back the server because the server I have lags really bad. I could bring it back, and you guys would get some lag, or you could send donations in and I will get a new server.

Thumbs up

Ok, well, enough demand over skype was received to continue. The server is back online, but warning! It lags.

Thumbs up

ivan, if you're taking downn the server all the time, noone will get the chance to test your work. don't expect people to judge what they didn't see, they can only judge what they have seen so far and they have seen someone who keeps taking down the server with the same reason over and over, there's lag and if i get money i i'll be able to buy a new server. if people don't get a chance to see what you are talking about, noone is going to pay you money

Hi Ivan.
Regarding servers, you should check out the following topic:
http://forum.audiogames.net/viewtopic.php?id=20737
The server is very stable and you get a month for free so you can see if you like it or not.

Thumbs up

Hey.
@Ivan, well you don't have your hard drive, but my situation is even worse big_smile I have mine, with the version of UP I talked about, but my laptop doesn't accept to put any USB devices in, I hear only the insert USB sound, but nothing else. Well that's off-topic but I'll try to find a way to get this version out and post a link for it.

Thumbs up

heh, check the new releases, he's saying in his tk topic that he will host a ultrapower server if the version is  good.
