New poll: the real creators of the game is…

As we recently summarized the previous poll concerning the cheat codes in the game (Yes, you) time to collect opinions about other aspects of the game… New poll concerns so real artists in the game. Always seemed to me that this is one of the most important features of the movie Business… but at last playtest before the release of version 0.9.4 one of my good friends said that he did not pay attention to the names of… only to parameters… Heavily me surprised… hence the idea to find out how you see this issue… 

The real creators of the BF for me:

  • killer feature (64%, 39 Votes)
  • ciekawy "smaczek" (33%, 20 Votes)
  • unnecessary add-in (and so did I look at the names of the only parameters) (3%, 2 Votes)

Voters: 61

The probe will also on the left side, on the home page… I encourage you to share your opinion…

Cheat Codes

I think it is high time to end the current poll related to cheat codes in the second part of the game.

There were 198 votes. By what 116 people would like to have the option, 73 No, and 9 people stopped. By the way, expanding my knowledge in the field of game design, my approach to cheat codes last bit has evolved ... because it turns out that it's not always about the fraud. Just do not all want to/can afford long playing a game, and sometimes want to stress, shoot some movies with well-known artists, which probably reflects well on the same game ... that no extra motivation (in the form of challenges or other "zachęcaczy") If you like in it, just play ...

Immediately uspokajam those where such an option does not, that cheat codes will not be available in all game modes, and only those, where they will not interfere with achievement and other gameplay objectives (as in career mode or challenge).

So officially I confirm that cheat codes will appear in the next version… but there is nothing for free if you wanted to have such option that I have a task for you ... or even two.

Pierwsze brzmi jakiego rodzaju cheat kody chętnie byście zobaczyli w grze. Domyślam się, że obowiązkowo ma być to zwiększenie dostępnej gotówki. Ale może macie jakieś inne propozycje… np. słyszałem, że niektórzy nie lubią animków i może chcieliby je wyłączyć? Dajcie znać co ewentualnie jeszcze można by wrzucić pod ogólne pojęte cheat codes / easter eggs 😉

The second task related to the first is password, that these codes would activate ... instead of writing such as $100 million can be used for some of the famous quote from the movie like "Show me the money"which exclaimed, Cuba Gooding, Jr. in the film Jerry Maguire

And if you do not take advantage of the opportunity to give some own ideas ... well… you will be one to blame…

 

Experience with version 0.9.4

It has been a week since making version 0.9.4 (and hot patch to it) so it's time to gather your feedback and comments on this version.

However, before I go into details, I would say that makes me very happy that quickly gave me know about problems. Thanks to the cooperation with you (thanks to Bartosz) managed to quickly detect and diagnose the problem and let HotFixa, which solved it.

Cooperation with the community and your quick reactions are essential especially in the case of projects such as business, that are created by one person, who has a fairly limited both temporary and hardware (testing on a small number of configuration). Therefore, if you find a problem in the game, do not hesitate to send a message to Facebook profile or email the details (the more the better).

I also enjoyed Your first impressions and reviews that you submitted to me immediately after the release of the game. Now when you have a little time on the limited new version waiting for more.

42 developers update

As that before the last releasem I could not focus on adding the creators, the update appeared set projection on the tape before this year's ' Oscars ' of. It contains more than 60 the creators and 170 photos. In addition to me, the biggest contributor of this update was Jan. This time the update is versatile because in it we have a bit of everything:

  • new artists (Polish and foreign)
  • a few candidates for this year's Oscars
  • new cult characters
  • the older artists that appear in the cult films
  • improvement of several poor quality photos

I'm glad that add their own suggestions for the developers I would point out, however, about the quality of photos (must be properly scaled to there is no deformation due to bad aspect ratio).

Update will apply when you run the a new game a default set of authors (details can be found here). In total, set the default game already contains 2395 creators.

Hotfix that is a new version of 0.9.4.35519

As is usually the case. that is how to throw the game on deep water it appear any problems. This time, Kathy found a bug related to bad counting scenarios created by the player. The problem is, on average, appears sporadically (only Bartosz it reported) but I suggest at the earliest opportunity update the game (because, as it appears you will not be able to create a scenario). By the way, I fixed a couple of small things (what you can see in the version history.)

As, that treats it as a hot fix, the game doesn't force you to update, and the new version is marked passes 0.9.4.35519 (it is important for the tip) and dated today. Welcome to the download page

Until the release of the next version of the game was left very little time. According to tradition, invites so at your personal blog in order to get acquainted with the most important news, changes and modifications that appear in version 0.9.4 now any day. This is a summary of what you may have read on the project over the past several weeks in a single post.

This entry is added to the Director’s cut and for now I invite you to read it in the post entitled What's new in version 0.9.4 of the movie Business 2.

In the next version… The relationship and chemistry between the creators and producer

Today about the functionality, which was proposed by several people but I admit that that I have a lot of doubts about whether she should appear in the game. After all I did an experiment and I implemented the basic mechanics. Talking about relationships and chemistry between artists.

What are these new concepts in the game world?

Director's Cut: Cult movies

On the occasion of the entry of the cult films I mentioned that in the framework of the cycle Director's Cut I'm going to describe to you could the formation of this new functionality. Because the subject is quite extensive, I decided to dedicate an entire separate entry on his personal blog. It is now available at this link also included in the section Director's Cut.

I wish you pleasant reading!

In the next version. Images of the car and the exhibition

In the Film Business in addition to movies, from the beginning there was the issue of excess cash on luxury. In the first part of it was the cars, possessions and even airplanes. In the second, there are auctions where you can buy works of art. The functionality of this, judging by the acquired by the players trophy does not enjoy a particularly keen interest. I must admit, however, that my "mission" is to create a game that is also educational. In the case of X. Muse is this familiarizing yourself with maybe less known but it is important and valuable, or simply iconic brawlers developers (probably you have noticed that the cross-section of the creators of the game is very wide: from teen idols, iconic heroes tv series, by the biggest Hollywood stars, legends of the film after the creators of the movies. and independent productions).

Similarly, I would like to make the game as many magnates in other fields of art ... and specifically the painting. So, here's the end (because this feature was, of course, planned from the very beginning) their images of your photos. That is, you will be able to see what you buy at auction. Maybe this will encourage You more for this type of investment.

In the next version… Cult movies

Currently in Movie Business you can find cult characters which is the familiar characters played by specific actors in real movies. In the next version of time to go one step further and enter the cult movies. What they are and how they will look in the game, you will learn later in this entry.

In the next version. Production with investor

Another problem, which is trying to resolve in the nearest version is a quick bankruptcy player at the beginning of the game. It is often the case that after two failed productions at the very beginning of the game, the player does not have the ability to rebound from the bottom, which can be frustrating, especially for those who are just starting their adventure with the Movie Business. One solution to this problem is to introduce deals executive producer about which I wrote before. Today at the second option "production with an investor".

Currently in the Film Business player in trouble financially, in desperation, you can use the help of the mafia. However, this is a last resort, not necessarily allow you to get out of the problems (and may cause feed in another ... in the end mafia sooner or later upomni for her). The new version will allow for more civilized approach to the problem, namely the ability to seek an external investor, which will allow for the partial financing of the production. Here's how this will work.

In the next version. Post-production visualization

The movie business is not a game in which you will find too many fancy. By "wodotrysku" I understand such features, which do not affect in any way the deepening of the mechanics of the game, and are the only audiovisual rozpraszaczami/przyciągaczami. Hence, the game looks like it looks like… In the new version I decided to enhance it with a “fancy feature”. Will be the visualization of special effects. On what they rely on?

In the next version. Production report

One of the more frequent complaints that occur in relation to the games, ranked primarily by beginners, is its randomness. Sheer randomness, however, is not the problem but the fact that often the Player cannot see the consequences of this randomness (in addition to the final assessment of the film). This situation occurs for example. during production of the film, when you make many calculations and some of them depends on certain factors. While some of them are visible to the player (such as star rating performance of the creators) is the other are not shown anywhere else.

The antidote for improving the current situation to be "production report" published after the war and show in detail several so far not visible decision pseudo random, which ultimately affected the final result of the film.

This report aims to facilitate understanding of the player why a particular film came out so and not otherwise. Not always the production report will contain some information – may be empty (that is, that there was some undesired random elements in addition to the performance artists).

This report can be useful in the future, when more features ... but more on that in subsequent episodes.

 

New chapters of help to the game

Work on the next version of the game are going pretty well. Last informed You in advance of your expected functionality Executive Producer. Information about the next news will appear after the new year. However, you do not bored by Christmas I have for you a few new chapters help to BF2. Perhaps not everybody is aware of the existence of aid, therefore, I encourage you to familiarize yourself with it. Can some of the items in the game will become better understood and will help you contact with the title.

All texts can be found in section Help.

Of course, if you have any comments or questions to the same form of assistance let me know.

In the next version… Executive Producer

All who follow social networks (Facebook / Google ) official game profile already know that work is underway on the next version. Today it is time for the first details associated with it. The first one goes, executive producer.

The idea of executive producer appeared inspired by the comments from the author Level Design for beginners Jacek Wesołowski. It turned out that BF2 doesn't allow safe experimentation. Failed decisions at the beginning of the game will result in a rapid defeat and discouragement among beginners. Remedy for it to be introduced recently short films ... They are cheaper to produce what in practice means to take less risk. Unfortunately, it seems that this idea was ultimately not good enough in practice.

New layout

The current theme of the service though was very functional a little differed from today's Web standards. I decided to it so a little refresh. Quite a long time I was looking for a template that would be to as functional as the original. In the end I managed to find one that meets my expectations. Here's so I am pleased to present a refreshed page was the official game business.

In addition, the CV home page, available at moviebusiness.tomiga.net also has been modified to include links to the most important section of the website.

As usual, any comments and comments about the new layout mile wdziane.

Video Tutorial: the cult of heroes

I am pleased to introduce you to the first in the history of the Movie Business video tutorial to the game. It is dedicated to Cult Characters. In the 10 minute video, I tell you about what is the cult of the hero, as their use in his own film, and how to add new, with the use of the service MovieStats.

In the context of the work on the MovieStats appeared, in fact, a new option that allows you to add your own iconic characters for a particular actor or actress. This movie shows in detail how to do it.

The video is recorded with the Polish comments but there are also subtitles in English. In addition, all examples have been presented on the English-language version of the game and MovieStats so that the material will be helpful also for all not speaking the language of Polish.

This is the first of this type of material for the movie Business, so let us know what you think about it. If you like it maybe in the future will follow movies about other aspects of the game.

In addition, after watching the video, you can run the game. Yesterday's version 0.9.2 contains more than 200 cult characters added by me. Immediately so you can try out this mechanism in practice. In MovieStats extended is also search engine. In addition to search it also allows developers to check whether a particular cult hero is back in the game. I hope that we also treat yourselves to add their favorite characters.

Teaser or wiedźcie, that something's going on

The fact that a few weeks ago appeared another version of the game does not mean anything but that from that point on, I already have the holidays. The time will come as a little and you'll want… For now, he is working on some new features in MovieStats, as well as a little surprise ... The Herald will let this little teaser ...

And with a completely different, it's been a few weeks since the release of v 0.9.1 in connection with this Jig Your comments concerning him. I am looking for your productions I have a few thoughts and ideas which could be improved in the next version. Let me know in the comments or on the forum what you like, and what requires still some amendments or changes.

In any case, know that something is going on and stay tuned for more information ...

IMDB Tool v2.0

In the course of the intensive work on the latest versions of the game, it turned out that myAPIFilm that uses to retrieve information about the creators of the IMDB has undergone a thorough re-design. Therefore, IMDBTool has stopped working. Only now I could find some time to make the appropriate changes to the tool. So here are the new versions can be downloaded from a dedicated sub-page IMDB Tool.

I recall that IMDB tool is useful for automatic downloading filmography IMDB site creators, which is necessary when adding new developers in the MovieStats.

Version 0.9.1 – fixes and improvements

Powoli staje się tradycją, że po wypuszczeniu kolejnej dużej wersji gry, w krótki czasie po niej, pojawia się kolejna stanowiąca coś w stylu hotfixów. Efekt skali robi swoje i uruchamianie programu na wielu komputerach, przez wielu użytkowników powoduje znalezienie kolejnych błędów i usterek. Z częścią z nich można żyć, inne są dosyć krytyczne i wymagają dosyć szybkiej reakcji.

Tak się też stało z wersją 0.9.0, która jak się okazało zawiera dosyć poważny błąd w algorytmach. Skutkuje on tym, że po kilkunastu lat rozgrywki popularność wielu (średnio popularnych) twórców szybuje w kosmos. Problem znalazł ponownie Kacper, który podesłał mi filmik ilustrujący problem… Po analizie udało mi się znaleźć jego źródło i go usunąć.

Przy okazji sprawdził się nowy mechanizm wychwytujący i automatycznie wysyłający błędy do serwera online. Dzięki niemu dostałem automatyczne zgłoszenia kilku innych (mniejszych) problemów pojawiających się w specyficznych sytuacjach.
