And worked a bit more with player health bar, going to look into magical damage as well soon, think should be easy, just to put some sort of float compare before it does damage to see if the Magic Defense bar still got any value if it does then it go there instead of on the player health:

Then projectiles does damage as well, and removed the part that makes the enemies stop to attack when doing melee, makes these enemies way more aggressive

Removed the effect that comes when bolt hits as that was just to show that was hitting player, needs to make wait time a bit longer on the spin attack

Testing Megascans, bought those some time ago, now also talk about that since Epic bought the studio it will become free to unreal engine developers :

https://www.gamesindustry.biz/articles/2019-11-12-epic-acquires-megascans-creator-quixel

Epic Games has announced the acquisition of development asset and toolset creator Quixel.

Quixel Megascans, a library of over 10,000 2D and 3D photogrammetry assets, will become free for all Unreal Engine developers at a yet-to-be-determined date following the completion of the acquisition. Toolsets Bridge and Mixer will also become free to everyone at the same time. Ahead of this, ten Megascans asset packs are available for free beginning today on the Unreal Marketplace.

in front of a screen
You meant Unity, also I heard UE4 is also available for dev? I have not heard much though.
I have not track record so I am fairly sure MS would not give me a Dev kit for free....LOL

Anyway, UI/HUD study for my First person Adventure game. Note that everything is just placeholder knocked together in Excel.




I wanted to have a hint system similar to Broken sword 5, which allow for different level of skills. Each additional hint reduce game scores, so there is incentive not to use hints.
But if you wanted just to experience the experience, story & all, you can do so, with each hint more obvious than the previous one. The final hint basically tell you the steps you need to do.

At the same time, I also wanted a control scheme (cheapo) that works well for both controller & mouse, so I do not need to create different menu system for controls, one for mouse input, one for controller.
You can stop/convert your Xbox One to a dev unit. I remember seeing people use said deep to get other apps and emulators to run on other Xbox’s they have been changed to a kit.

Ring and Bracer by Infinity PBR, they make a lot of cheap things that can use in games, normally it cost very much making models, the cats I got here took $200 to get made, as I wanted something special, I even did a copyright now on those cats, on the drawings used as been in talk with one that wants to create models of them with 3d printer.
