(V2 is out) Flip Man - BETA

by DevonX


Posted on January 29, 2007 at 12:11 AM



Alright, this is another shot at trying to encourage other people to use GMPhysics. The first time I actually tryed making something on my own without copying the GMPhysics Examples, this is what I came up with.
This is Flip Man, you control a character with the mouse to make him do whatever you want.
This game has a very harsh learning curve, so don't give up when your just starting out.
I would say this game is pretty fun. You just have to mess with it for a while.
Feedback is highly appreciated for what to do in the next BETA or even the game.

<B>Edit</B>: K, the new dlls are included and i think you will all like the new style, the diving is still being worked on, so don't expect much from that.

Lol this is really cool. 9/10. Controls took some time getting use to.
Wommelbammer commented January 29, 2007 at 1:20 AM
That was fun... And really funny! I liked it and I am sure you worked hard on it. 9/10
thunderbolt commented January 29, 2007 at 1:50 AM
I dunno why but when i pressed start button, it said MSVCP71.dll is missing. WTH? I'm not rating till I get this working.
Obelisk commented January 29, 2007 at 3:05 AM
That...was awesome! You seriously need to finish this, Flip Man could be the next Line Rider if you work at it!

9/10, just add some features and work on the graphics a bit.
DevonX commented January 29, 2007 at 3:26 AM
@drhowell440: srry, for some reason it won't let me upload files, it takes like 5 minutes to get my prgress bar full, then it doesn't do anything. idk why.

thnx for all of the positive comments on this, never expected everyone to like it this much, i don't go much by my judgement of the game anymore, expecially after Stick Dive PRO, i thought that was fun, but nobody knew how to do anything and most people didn't like it.


I'm currently working on the following for the next BETA:

-Freestyle ski-jumping**
-Trampolining**
-Trampolining while wearing skis
-Just jumping around for practice*
-Just jumping around with skis*
-Maybe some diving, idk, GMPhysics does support water so probably
-Survival, blocks move around, no floor, stay in as long as you can.
-Freefall tricks
-Human cannonball

* Already done, but not being released until everything else is too.
** Currently being experimented with.

It's going to be a while before I get it out, but swim season just ended, so I'll have a lot more time on my hands to work on it. If anyone else has any suggestions that are somewhat reasonable, I just might include them in this.

alright, whos voting me down to a 7, everyone said a 9... hmmm...
DevonX commented January 29, 2007 at 3:31 AM
drhowell440 - Have you posted again yet?

thnx fer voting me low when you cant even play it, i delete ur comment, my rating goes up, hmmm.........

PS, does anyone know how to put text inside a blue qoute box, just replace the brackets with X's so I can actually use that instead of what i did at the top of this comment.
Crane-ium commented January 29, 2007 at 7:01 AM
Um...Well, i think the game was cool and an interesting concept. But maybe add some gameplay to it. 8/10
firestormx commented January 29, 2007 at 10:59 AM
That was pretty nifty; but as the help file says, the learning curve was quite harsh.
Maybe you should add some tips or stratagies to the help file...Different methods to getting your guy up (IE: moving the mouse up and down really quickly) and stuff like that.
IAmMe commented January 29, 2007 at 3:07 PM
Except the confusing controls playing this game is really fun. 8.5/10
IAmMe commented January 29, 2007 at 3:08 PM

Bryan commented January 29, 2007 at 3:22 PM
Really fun. I recommend doing a tut. Its very hard.
Relex commented January 29, 2007 at 3:54 PM
Sorry all you other Gamemaking ppl... but this... is the FUNNIEST GAME EVER!!! seriously man I had a blast! yeah.. at first I didnt know what to do but as soon as I read that it is mouse controlled I was well on my way making crazy jumps and shit! I could even do the worm!! hell this was cool! you should like make a way to control the arms or something... so you can stand on them n' shit! and do even cooler tricks! Some movements where actualy pretty realistic.. like the getting up jump when laying on your back (I know because I can) anyway completed game? think this is a WIP cuz it does need some work but Ill give you a 10/10 anyway because I had a great time playing this!
Tyranic-Moron commented January 29, 2007 at 6:49 PM
Is there some DLL I'm supposed to have, other than GMPhysics (unless it's been updated, then I'd need that)?

It says 'ERROR in action number 1 of Create Event for object obj_control: Error defining an external function' when I click Start

It would help if you included any DLL's required in the zip >_>

No rating yet, as I haven't been able to play it
Patrick7286 commented January 29, 2007 at 9:37 PM
hard to control but still cool 9/10
Xxypher commented January 29, 2007 at 10:24 PM
GASP!
you deleted my comment
a comment that was saying how good the game was
how dare you...
Obelisk commented January 29, 2007 at 10:32 PM
Awesome, an update.

Lol, I got my skis stuck in the ground. It was kinda funny.
gamerman commented January 29, 2007 at 11:09 PM
It was impossible to jump, am i missing something?
DevonX commented January 29, 2007 at 11:26 PM
try turning skis on in the options, its easier, no skis is pretty hard, with the massive amount of time I've spent playing this, I have pretty much mastered everything, so yeah, try turning skis on. It helps you balance.
DevonX commented January 29, 2007 at 11:28 PM
srry, this iwas supposed to be a wip, i accidentally forgot to change it, its updated now.
gamerman commented January 29, 2007 at 11:54 PM
Yeah, that was easier. This does have allot of potential, keep working on it!
DevonX commented January 29, 2007 at 11:55 PM
srry Xxypher, i meant to delete a different comment that was right next to urs, they were ranting about dumb stuff and rated low.
DevonX commented January 29, 2007 at 11:57 PM
ObeL IsK, i know how to fix this, but its going to take a while. i have to redo quite some stuff.

*Writes while having foot getting the hell chewed out of it by a puppy, about to yell at it*
DevonX commented January 30, 2007 at 12:06 AM
wow, i gotta start combining more into each of my comments, almost half of my comments are from me.

gamerman, just mess around with the skis until you get the feeling. Once you get rid of your skis, everything changes a little bit but if you've mastered the skis, its not too much different, just a bit harder to balance.
gamerman commented January 30, 2007 at 12:36 AM
I'v noticed that the guy always has the skies, just when the skies are off, you can't see them.
drhowell440 commented January 30, 2007 at 12:37 AM
No i havent played it yet,by the way i voted 5/10 on that last comment because if i couldnt play it then already it had some flaws.You really need to upload the dll or at least gimme an upload link to it cuz it looks cool and everyone else had sid it was pretty good.
DevonX commented January 30, 2007 at 1:04 AM
not really, gamerman, they are completely different polygon models for GMPhysics, duh look again, the heel can touch the ground when ur not wearing skis, cuz obviously the skis arent there, not put the skis on, impossible to touch the skis on the ground,

@drhowell440, in this new update, there is all of the dll's, try 'dl'ing again, then rate accordingly.
DevonX commented January 30, 2007 at 1:59 AM
Hey, here's a list of stuff I can do in the jumping around portion with skis on:

-Front Flip
-Double Front Flip
-Triple Front Flip
-Back Flip
-Double Back Flip
-Back Flip Straight
-Double Back Flip Straight
-Almost Triple Backflip

Just some stuff for other people to try, if I had a good screen capture program, i would post a .zip with movies of me doing all this stuff. I'll keep looking for one.

10/10 btw
lincolnwins commented January 30, 2007 at 2:45 AM
Strangely addicting, it takes me a little bit to get him to air-hump to bounce off the ground, so I often just jerk my mouse around and watch him bounce around. 9/10
SquareWheel commented January 30, 2007 at 3:18 AM
Well, the constant mouse changing was annoying, but the game/example is fine. 9/10
DevonX commented January 30, 2007 at 1:46 PM
hey lincoln, you actually did try it, i knew you couldn't resist.
DevonX commented January 30, 2007 at 1:46 PM
omg, im at my dad's house now, and i 'dl'ed it, and i can't do shit!, my dude won't rotate, i think GMPhysics works differently on different computers....
Relex commented January 30, 2007 at 1:58 PM
update is awsome! keep it up! (I like it better without ski's + they get stuck sometimes) 10/10
DevonX commented January 30, 2007 at 2:29 PM
lol, you ppl are awesome, thnx for giving it so many high ratings.
IAmMe commented January 30, 2007 at 2:32 PM
Nice, of course better than the beta v1. I saw that it's hard to press the "dive again" button and it would be really nice if this game had a score system or something that would a purpose to play it. 9/10
DevonX commented January 30, 2007 at 2:33 PM
@gamerman: now that im at my dad's, i see what you are talking about, it doesn't do that on my mom's computer, i also notice how no skis just seems as if he had invisible skis, huh, GMPhysics is weird......
IAmMe commented January 30, 2007 at 2:39 PM
btw i could be wrong but i noticed that GMPhysics works differently in different FPS.
gamerman commented January 30, 2007 at 3:26 PM
I do have a laptop, so that right there could be the problem.
10/10 becaus I really like it, and really want to see it get bigger.
DevonX commented January 30, 2007 at 4:39 PM
its getting bigger, just wait till my next beta comes out.
Relex commented January 30, 2007 at 4:42 PM

JID commented January 30, 2007 at 9:32 PM
As I said before,very good.9/10
Crane-ium commented January 30, 2007 at 9:33 PM
How does this have so many downloads? ITS BECAUSE NO ONE HAS SUBMITTED A GAME IN FOREVER! This is fun though, especially with skiis, and me and my friend kept trying to do awesome flips. 9/10
JID commented January 30, 2007 at 9:38 PM
you should make a ski lvl too.
JID commented January 30, 2007 at 9:40 PM
it not a game it's a WIP.
noshenim commented January 30, 2007 at 11:24 PM
i only managed to give him suizures :|
no rating
gtvg commented January 31, 2007 at 1:19 AM
I love the rag doll physics, but its really hard to get used to.
7/10 since its WIP
Amarin commented January 31, 2007 at 1:49 AM
I want to check it out... but I've been so busy...
god commented January 31, 2007 at 1:50 AM
I really liked this. It is addicting and the skiis are really fun. You could make a game itself where you are a guy on the skiis sliding down a slope and flipping.
9/10 *adds to favorite games list*
Crane-ium commented January 31, 2007 at 3:21 PM
I agree with you on some parts how you rated it, but a few. This game is still cool, although, it's true that it doesn't really have a gameplay.
Peter93 commented January 31, 2007 at 3:25 PM
I love this game!

9/10
IAmMe commented January 31, 2007 at 3:27 PM
It should have a gameplay like point scoring for (the more spectacular and high the more points) jumps like in arcade sport games. I would give a reason to play it more than 10 minutes.
drhowell440 commented February 02, 2007 at 1:39 AM
@SuperDevon04
I dont think the deleting function is ment for you to delete peoples posts that give you not so good of a rating as you wanted.My post was legit and gave god reasons for why i gave the rating i did.
IAmMe commented February 02, 2007 at 12:26 PM
I think constructive criticism (like i saw from drhowell440) is good.
Relex commented February 02, 2007 at 11:07 PM
Yeah some ppl cant take criticism... anyway I dont think there can be much criticism to this game. BTW ive played this game more than any other GM-game made by someone else. (and Im quite good now with tripple backflips etc... lobbing myself over the lvl walls and wall jumping from side to side!!) ITS SO AWSOME! ill give it another 10/10!! (plz keep working on this I cant wait for more functions and gameplay etc!)
DevonX commented February 03, 2007 at 12:45 AM
lol Relex, you make me feel so awesome. (I can now do quadruple frontflips)
IAmMe commented February 03, 2007 at 12:10 PM

Whoa, this is really cool!
I love the idea, very original.
I got used to it pretty quickly, and now I'm hopping around that room, diving into the pool, etc.
