I saw a page on the wiki saying there's a thread in these forums on Puzzle Studio. It linked to what I think is its old location, however, and I couldn't find one here (via search box)....

 

So, uhmm, how's the progress?

I haven't added a Puzzle Studio forum yet. So, it's the project still alive or has it been abandoned in favour of Chuck's Challenge 3D now?

 

Depends.

 

I'll still work on it when I have access to computers with git installed.

You should learn Lua. It's easy for me. It took me 1 week to learn.

 

Would the same go for some one who doesn't know any programming languages? I take it its not like a reuglar/or full fledged language?

I wouldn't mind learning about this 'git' and stuff. (heh I have no idea what this is but I have downloaded puzzle studio a long time ago and checked it out a little). Is there a place to discuss aspects of it? Like what kind of features we'd like or dislike..

okay, dumb question on my part.

 

here are some ideas I thought of which I don’t know are good or not without testing

 

-teleporter connection being selectable. In other words, instead of teleporters always going in reverse reading order, the level designer can decide where they go.

 

-(I saw this on that video of the canceled official CC2) blocks that can only be pushed in one or two directions (horizontally, vertically)

 

-chips over water, ice, fire. etc. Pretty much a lot the “invalid” tiles [the things that are logical anyway, if that makes sense…] If a chip can be placed on water, and chip doesn’t have flippers should he be able to get the chip or not?

I'm guessing you mean this video:

The video has an example of chips on recessed walls (0:45-0:50) and a key on water (~1:20).

1.Puzzle studio is 3D-like game, it's cool, but all of its 3D graphic is paste 6 same 2D images to an cubic, some time it make player confusing especially the blocks with arrows. when a bunch of 3D block accumulate together , it's hard to distinguish their borders。

2.The map during play is about 10*10, you have to patrol the level ,many times to catch the whole scene, it's too small comparing to level size which is up to 32*32.

if you want, program it, it's open source

Is something about LUA?I'like to learn

git is a program that lets you easily manage open-source things.

 

EDIT: fixed the 2 i

But if we decide to add some new elements, like lasers, jump box, sticky blocks and others like big circuits , the map displayed seems too small. If people have large screen, the "big tile" may cause people dizzy. we have big screens and high resolution than past, why not make full use of it?

For PS stuff, you might want to talk to Joshua Bone - I know he's been working on a version of it himself.

Update: no dice in compiling Puzzle Studio for mac.

 

 

and it took me a while to discover it uses WIN_API or whatever it's called.
