  1. Graphics Intersect Showoff Thread!

    Our file host is your best friend: https://www.ascensiongamedev.com/community/filehost/ That system has an interface with google drive so we have seemingly unlimited storage for you all.
  2. Graphics Intersect Showoff Thread!

    Nope. Too sketch. Same. Your custom stuff is incredible but anything with the current default graphics might have too many similarities to the default rpg maker stuff. Can never be too safe. Thanks though!
  3. Graphics Intersect Showoff Thread!

    Will absolutely find a place to use them, thanks!
  4. store consumables in the backpack

    We desperately need to make the storing/selling/trading control to be right click instead of double. Would flow so much better in every way, shape, and form. I'm adding this to our to-do list for Beta 5 Edit: Updated the roadmap to reflect that https://www.ascensiongamedev.com/community/topic/691-intersect-development-road-map/

  7. [FAQ] Failed to Create Graphics Device

    Answer included in the OP above. TLDR? Update your graphics drivers. If that doesn't work you're out of luck for now. Sorry!!!!
  8. I've seen this error posted twice tonight and several times in the past so I'm finally making an FAQ thread for it. So you startup your client and you're greeted with a terrible crash and you find the following error: 2017-09-23 06:32:26.599 [Error] Message: Failed to create graphics device! 2017-09-23 06:32:26.608 [Error] Stack Trace: at Microsoft.Xna.Framework.GraphicsDeviceManager.CreateDevice() at Microsoft.Xna.Framework.Game.DoInitialize() at Microsoft.Xna.Framework.Game.Run(GameRunBehavior runBehavior) at Intersect_MonoGameDx.Program.Main() in C:\Users\JC Snider\Desktop\AGD\Intersect-Engine\Intersect Client\ClientMain.cs:line 25 2017-09-23 06:32:26.608 [Error] Time: 9/23/2017 6:32:26 AM What does it mean? We use a library called MonoGame for graphic rendering, audio playback, and input (keyboard/mouse) recognition. From a programming standpoint, MonoGame acts as a middleman between our commands and your graphics card. We tell MonoGame what to draw, and what music to play, and it does a lot of the heavy lifting. Okay, background knowledge out of the way. This error is from within MonoGame, it means that your graphics card in it's current state does not support the features required by our client. What can you do? Time for some bad news, for now the only option/chance is to update your graphics drivers. If that doesn't work there is nothing you can do at this time. Why does the editor work, but the client doesn't? Some people will find that the editor works fine but the client does not. This is because MonoGame uses OpenGL or DirectX for graphic rendering. DirectX which the editor uses is a lot more compatible with lower end machines/graphic cards. The client is built so it can run on Linux and Mac machines and must use OpenGL under the hood. OpenGL is much less forgiving so the editor might work for some when the client does not. Is there a DirectX client? Not at this time. What are the /actual/ graphics card requirements? According to MonoGame your graphics card and drivers must support OpenGl Version 2.1+ & ARB Extensions. That being said we've found a few instances where having these features still didn't work. It's a mystery to us at this time. If your device supports OpenGL Version 2.1+ & ARB Extensions and the client still doesn't work then this is likely a MonoGame error/mistake and you might find it working in the future. TLDR? Update your graphics drivers. If that doesn't work you're out of luck for now. Sorry!!!!
  9. Calling on all of the crazy people that follow me, help us out and send us screenshots of your games, editor, etc for a new website :)

  10. Working on a new website for Intersect, and I'd like to show off all the cool stuff you all are doing! If you don't mind, share any and all screenshots from your WIP games here. Posting here will also indicate that I have permission to use your images on our site. Everything is accepted and encouraged! I'd love to show of all aspects of our engine and editor with a wide variety of graphics/styles/and games. Maps Various Editor Windows Lots of players online Uses of lighting/animations Combat Crazy Events Anything and everything you all want to show off would help a lot! Thanks! JC

    Thanks so much for sharing this!!! Edit: this is so freaking cool! It looks mighty professional too with the colors and instructions. Absolutely incredible.
  12. Concept The Wheel

    Umm.. you were concerned this might not get insta-approved? This looks fantastic! This is an online rpg, are you using Intersect? Custom coding? Something else? PM or tag me when there's beta/alpha tests (Also 5.5 misspelled?)
  13. Spell Animations

    You're in the right place. Specifying you want resources for Intersect is good here, but this is still a resource request and not an engine related question.

    Topic moved to Resource Requests. On mobile so I can't properly quote but @Gravelord suggested browsing: https://www.gamedevmarket.net/category/2d/ and https://opengameart.org/
  15. Why am i have just 2 resolution?

    Drivers. You need to update your graphics drivers.
