Randor the Red -> =HS= Developer Update Nov 2014 (11/6/2014 12:22:37)

Hi all!

It been super busy here in the Secret Outpost past while. I gonna try fill you in on latest news.

First off, Project Lead for HeroSmash is just one part of what I do for Artix Entertainment. I also part of Marketing [Desktop Wallpapers, HeroMart and Game Web graphics, etc]. Since some staff now on secret projects I helping more with newsletter and webpage graphics for AQW. Games that have the highest amount of players get priority of my time, but HeroSmash is still alive. Secondly I not live in the USA so I not able to attend meetings at AE HQ and art needs come first before I can take assignments and put graphics together in a matter that other staff member need (sometimes many revisions to reveal their visions!). Its a juggling act as some days I can be giving assignments from more than one game team. Note also my job is not 9-5 but rather around the clock (I have to deal with people in different time zones around the world) but I am only human and have to make sure I get time to relax and deal with home/personal life like anyone else.

Then you need to include all other things I need do keep up to date on software, PC issues (crashes do happen lucky I do my own PC repair). Then I work around last minute changes and assignments, game bugs/errors. Deal with tons of PMs and Emails (I do my best to read all of them, you feedback is important but please note I not HELP support department!). Update social sites and blogs. Plan out upcoming events. Keep team running. and many more things of a long list like learning how the game code works so I can learn to fix and create new stuff. Finally there the testing and fixing issues with submitted art from team before adding item info, pricing and such before I can roll out to you the player.

Another issue is the team itself. Its a small team and many have left to deal with life issues and new careers. Wonderp Bread is learning and working on new project ideas for HS, but as art wise it just Wonderp Bread and Arae (myself when I can). Each has work and school to deal with. This why amount of items a lot lower than other AE games. Very soon I will be looking for new team(s) member wishing to learn and get on hands experience in Game Dev.

I will try to post something like this more often. This post will be open for short time so you can ask questions. Keep 1-2 questions please.

Last thing! Like to thank the forum mods for all they do, its a hard job and lack of info does not help. But its hard when each day is different and ever changing, but I hope to change that asap.




Venthos -> RE: =HS= Developer Update Nov 2014 (11/7/2014 16:48:11)

well my question is .. If this time you will accept 16+ year old artists into the team with parental notice

Cause I have time to make HS art
I practice making art
I love the game and know it like the palm of my hand
But I'm still considered a minor .

So are 16 and 17 year olds in or out? And why?




DarkLore -> RE: =HS= Developer Update Nov 2014 (11/7/2014 17:11:07)

How are the older maps going to be redone exactly? it says so on Artix.com




Randor the Red -> RE: =HS= Developer Update Nov 2014 (11/8/2014 10:25:20)

@DarkLore Phaze 1 removal of outdated shops. Phaze 2 rescaled so each map feels same size and allow more room for monsters and npcs and players.

@Venthos the age policy is not something I control. I work for AE, so I too need follow the guidlines.




Venthos -> RE: =HS= Developer Update Nov 2014 (11/8/2014 19:07:56)

yea I know that but the age policy is 16+ with parental notice? I believe Rev was a minor when he got signed and he gets payed.




Crystal Lion -> RE: =HS= Developer Update Nov 2014 (11/9/2014 5:54:47)

Have you thought of asking the other AE team members for help? Besides the ones who are busy with their personal lives, that is.




megakyle777 -> RE: =HS= Developer Update Nov 2014 (11/9/2014 6:08:16)

Cystal Lion: I asked the same thing about Oversoul from another staff. here was the response:

quote:

Hi!

The way things work with making art for multiple games under AE is, the different game leads need to "share" or "lend" their artists. If OS wanted me to help out with a release, Nulgath would need to go to Alina and say something like "I'll give you 12 applesauce flavored souls if I can use Blade for the week" or something like that.
Then Alina would need to say "Okay, but make sure it's the kind with brown sugar. Here's a slightly used Blade. Those scars are just... aesthetic." and then my assignments for that week or so would be for OS.

Considering Nulgath more than likely has no idea who I am that's pretty unlikely unless someone contacted him through smoke signal and said "this is Blade. He's pretty" ... Or something like that.

My Tweet wasn't meant to state I would be working for OS, just that if they asked me to help out I would.

Feel free to post this, sure! This hopefully explains a little better than my last message.


Same thing probably applies.




Randor the Red -> RE: =HS= Developer Update Nov 2014 (11/10/2014 9:45:21)

Other teams help when possible. In fact I keep in touch and work on occasions with other team leads. Ghost and Warlic are helping HS out with some new BG music. I have big plans for HS but it will take time and support from you the players too.




Venthos -> RE: =HS= Developer Update Nov 2014 (11/10/2014 22:22:55)

I supported HS till since 2012 . And I'd love to one day work for you.

Can you tell us more about the age restriction?

Ik I might sound buggy with this but I just love HS very much and have so many time and some experience with flash and the HS template that I would love to help in any way.




Crystal Lion -> RE: =HS= Developer Update Nov 2014 (11/11/2014 9:13:20)

I noticed that the OverSoul section has a review thread. Would it be worth the trouble to start such a thread for HeroSmash?

I did my best to promote the game by word-of-web in a blog, with a custom story. Will continue to support this game.




Randor the Red -> RE: =HS= Developer Update Nov 2014 (11/12/2014 10:58:47)

Testing a change to map pads. Right now when flying you will get sucked into an invisible wormhole lol. We changing that to button type. Also deciding how hovering mouse over an object be shown. Right now a yellow glow will appear around it to grab your attention. What you think of an super power x-ray feel to that? I will be adding missing shop items next few days and hope to have a test version of the park for your feedback. once this issue is fixed we can finally move forward building a brave new world.




Crystal Lion -> RE: =HS= Developer Update Nov 2014 (11/20/2014 3:01:35)

Do update us when the new park's ready for testing.




Randor the Red -> RE: =HS= Developer Update Nov 2014 (11/20/2014 10:27:40)

still building the new arrows but u can test flying in front of the monument and phone (on tree).




Crystal Lion -> RE: =HS= Developer Update Nov 2014 (11/20/2014 21:30:32)

So far, flying in front of the phone-in-the-tree doesn't suck my character in unless I click on it. I'm not sure which monument you're referring to, but the Memorial day tombstones also don't activate unless I click on them.




Randor the Red -> RE: =HS= Developer Update Nov 2014 (11/25/2014 14:27:27)

thx @Crystal Lion,

Ok merge the silver and gold button art together and made button more easy to see that it active.




Crystal Lion -> RE: =HS= Developer Update Nov 2014 (11/25/2014 21:45:57)

The arrows around Pandora's monument have been removed, but movement's fine. In order to access the fights with Demolicious or daVinci, I have to fly much lower than before the changes.

Which gold/silver buttons are you referring to? I did notice the new arrow changes at the "lobby" of the park, they won't activate unless clicked on, again, and have a bright yellow glow on mouseover.




Randor the Red -> RE: =HS= Developer Update Nov 2014 (11/26/2014 11:01:48)

@Crystal Lion,

arrows that are in mid of map. side arrows will prob be removed as u can fly into one screen into another as always. as for exiting the zone the EXIT icon will be added to send u to overlook. Its important that the new system work right before pushing ahead too fast. Working on getting boss doors working so we can finally get all pieces in place.

Goals-

enlarge maps for more players to battle and more room to explore. Better visuals to know where to go without causing flying issues. war across city storyline quests. new zones in works.

Hi there. I hope this is the right section in seeking advice/help for in-game problems. Recently, I've decided to log in into my Herosmash account after afew years. While I was exploring the badges section, I came across a HS Founder shop. Intrigued by it, I decided to see if there's any updates being made in that shop. Surprisingly, I could buy afew of the items there. A message pop out as I was about to purchase ''Foundation'', a member item. To my knowledge, I thought that I've already became a member of Herosmash back in 201(?)s. And I'm puzzled, if my membership expires in 2065, why do I need to renew/purchase packages in order to purchase that particular member item that I'm having trouble with? Looking forward for your favorable reply. (:
P.s I'm not sure where & how to upload of file attachment. Wanted to present a screenshot of it as an evidence.




Unbound -> RE: =HS= Developer Update Nov 2014 (5/25/2015 12:32:38)

Umm randor it maybe a request and i maybe on a wrong forum but randor can you update market street so we could get movie plex token ?




Caelholdt -> RE: =HS= Developer Update Nov 2014 (6/5/2015 6:33:14)

I'm curious if the old Ultimate items are going to return in the future. I understand you're hoping to improve HeroSmash with better visuals, but I'd like to see the old versions come back as they look really nice.




Unbound -> RE: =HS= Developer Update Nov 2014 (6/6/2015 12:55:35)

With all due respect I am asking you to you please please update the market street :3

Font size above 3 is considered SPAM, removed. [Niki]




.Lord Ginger. -> RE: =HS= Developer Update Nov 2014 (6/13/2015 19:11:58)

...dead game...




Uchiha Sarada -> RE: =HS= Developer Update Nov 2014 (6/14/2015 17:21:31)

Hi Randor Im a HS Founder and I was wondering if you could add one small event where we have to complete some sort of small adventure and unlock an special shop of HS for Epicduel because Id like to use the HS weps i use in Epicduel because the Weps they added to the herosmash arcade into epicduel are not the Good HS weps, So I was wondering if you could add new HS items into ED By completing some HS Challenges.

Don't beg for something to happen. If they decide to do it, they will do it in time.

Albeit this being able to get more people to play HeroSmash, it's also bad considering that special shops are for legitimate special events. There's nothing special about linking EpicDuel to HeroSmash and thus would be impractical.




Nightmare AQW -> RE: =HS= Developer Update Nov 2014 (8/18/2015 11:36:00)

I see less and less people on each time I log into this game. Sometimes there are literally 0 people on, even in the log in area... Are you guys planning on actually doing something with this game or have you completely given up?
