292

New FSM!

Playmaker from Hutong Games; I just licensed my copy yesterday. I’m like a kid in a candy store over here! I’m at work now, but as soon as I’m home, it’s on.

I was just playing around with it with the little bit of time that I had yesterday, but I’ll try to be a bit more serious tonight. All I had time for last night was skimming through some samples, watching some videos, looking over some documentation, and playing around with a scene in Nukins. All in all, not much time.

Tonight will probably be Playmaker vs. Nukins, as Nukins is still fresh and has no resources or code backing it. I figure this will give me a good opportunity to see about developing the entire game with the same FSM, and a visual FSM to boot! I will probably be streaming (http://www.livestream.com/nekoyoubi) some or all of my fumbling through Playmaker today, if anyone wants to see this thing in action.

I think I’m going to redo some of 292 with Playmaker as well, as while 292’s not got a real “goal”, it at least needs a state machine so I don’t have to manually write state controllers for menus and the like. 😉
