It’d be fun to have a dozen or so “Bad Golf 2"s on the title screen and play a different version each time you boot it up. 

You mean like the Brütal Legend “Double Fiiiiiiiiine!“s? wink

Huh.  I just looked up half a dozen videos and they are all the same audio.

Rob Halford’s Double Fine sample is the only one in the universe that matters

everyone start listening to the album Sad Wings Of Destiny.  If you don’t have it buy it then start listening! Metal!

never turn your back on the ripper!  now I’m listening to a bunch of Judas Priest!  One of the best metal bands of all time formed the same year as Led Zeppelin but they are still going strong and evolving.  :D :D :D THANKS XEXANO! Now I can’t stop listening to Priest!  Electric Eye!  You Got Another Thing Comin! Turbo Lover!  The singalongs don’t stop!

Please don’t veer too far in the direction of metal blaring while awesome dudes kick ass. YET AGAIN. That tone is way too over represented in video games.

Less Twisted Metal, more Animal House.

Take this video reference and golf-erize it:

Those new screenshots are amazing. Bad Golf 2 looks primed for game of the year!

Also, I’m always down for some Sunday night metal!

New song!!! :D

Rough version of the lobby track.  Did a few things to make it similar to the metal title track.  Stuff like that piano riff that plays at the end is the same in both versions, the chords are the same (minor 7 flat 5 Locrian scale all the way!).  Kinda weird, results in a good amount of tension but its fun to play with.  Was playing a lot with it and what you hear with me playing random chords on guitar and soloing randomly is just to set an example (I play a LOT of wrong notes raspberry haha).  Think of it as me scribbling on a piece of paper on top of something nice.  It will be changed raspberry Same with the piano it will be changed as well.  I’m just having fun at the moment making stuff sound wacky and trying to find ways to make it relate to the title track.  Anyways,  here it is! :D

compare it to the lobby track https://soundcloud.com/jason-desante/bad-golf-community-title-2

Another update!


blue.jpg
invadererik and Taekon have been working on getting dyanmic textures happening so that colours can be assigned to players withing requiring additional files (the right most one is the original, and the left and centre ones are coloured programatically). The current plan is to do this for carts as well (issue #1)

a2c70b06-9cb7-11e3-8596-67d476f13606.png
XeXano has been doing some more Bradwork (issue #1)

687474703a2f2f7777772e6a656e6e696665726d636d75727261792e636f6d2f74696d696e636f6c6f722e706e67
Jenni has been working some more on her Tim character concept art (issue #1)

92401940-9cc0-11e3-8cac-cfaf55c27adb.jpg
Taekon has been working on some lobby/character selection UI (issue #100)

8ac3ed22-9c61-11e3-9e1b-8072f08c1d7e.jpg
lowmankind has been working on some waterfalls and rock walls (issue #5)

QXpxOv4.gifbpPzySz.gif
cachemonet has put together initial in-game UI elements for swing power and ball indicators (issue #25)

Osse has been working on getting better network disconnect handling happening (issue #18)

GoldenHeaven has been working on volume control functionality (issue #24)

gsm has been working on positional audio for local multiplayer (issue #62)

lightsoda and invadererik have been working on polishing up our two current menu implementations bit, adding music and sound effects (issue #16)

Bales has started work on a lobby track with a quiet piano piece inspired by an older golf game’s lobby music (issue #9)

jasondesante has done another lobby track with a jazz feel (issue #9)

The Mad Pirate has been looking at some debugging output to speed troubleshooting network issues (issue #106)

As mentioned earlier in the thread, I’ve cleaned some extraneous files from our repository history and fixed a case problem we had following the folder structure change. Details of this can be found in the new guide to using git which gsm and osse have also been working on!

Lokno has been working on more camera terrain more avoidance stuff (issue #36)


There have been a huge number of updates within the past two days. It’s been great to see everybody rallying together!

We have a bug:

MfyMmea.png

Yes, that is the ball few hundred meters below the course.

Apparently if you leave your ball unattended and drive off into the sunset, the ball drops through the ground. If you stay next to it and watch it, it stays there forever. The minute you start driving away, the ball starts moving, first sliding all over the course, then dropping off. It seems like it has a mind of its own.

Although, if you drive away backwards watching it, it never seems to disappear. Them balls are tricksy I tell you.

It’s never a bug. If the ball has a mind of its own, it means it’s part of how you play Bad Golf.

We can add (longer term) a power up feature where you screw up your opponent’s ball by making it run off to the wrong direction.

That’s sort of the plan with running over opponents balls in carts :D

Okay. This is looking positively amazing and I do NOT want to miss out on this. Damnit, I wish I had found this topic earlier!

I have zero experience with programming, but I am okay on the art side of things. Are you still in need of 2D artists?

There’s still some issues open that could use some 2D art.  The best thing to do is just look through the issue tracker and find something that you’d like to contribute, and leave a message there letting people know that you intend to work on something (and then put up a link to your art asset on the tracker once you’re finished).

I’ve added some issues referencing needed assets for the minimap if someone would like to take those. They should be relatively simple, but they certainly require thought and good eye for design.
Join in on the fun!

This is something to address more directly once we’ve got the golf sim a little more polished and can get a feel for what works and what doesn’t. My expectation at the moment is that we’ll allow this, but have carts that are hit by golf balls accelerate and not be able to steer for a short period of time (so that blocking a shot becomes more of a risk vs reward proposition, and targeting opponents carts intentionally may even be something a player might want to do).

“They actually asked us about this and we gave them permission. We’re super excited to see what comes of it!” said Rice in an e-mail to Eurogamer. “And yes, the ideas are copyrighted. There are legal lines on the pitch videos and the webpage. We’re just letting them run with it for fun.”

Not to be a downer but this annoys me, this is what is known as copy fraud, ideas and game mechanics are not copyright able. Only the expression of an idea is copyrightable. Even if that we’re not the case, the U.S doesn’t entirely adhere to relevant treaties, so unless you register the copyright you are only entitled to actual damages (which would be what on 30 second pitch?).
As far as the name, I’ve searched no record of a trademark application for Bad Golf attributable to anyone from DF. Asking permission seems to have been more about respect than any matter of law.
