here is the title (image only).  It took awhile since I went through several revisions and basically realized I am not yet the drawing type, so I went the simple clean route instead.
 

 
I've decided I want to try and make a beat'em up style game.

makin word boxes and stuff. you can reposition it, and then it'll send the positions to an ini file, and those variables will be read on startup so it'll be all consistent.

I decided to dump the graphical theme of my game, with 2 days in, this is quite the disadvantage, but I underestimated the production of pixel art graphics. It'd take me me very long to finish all planned animations so I should change it now.
 
Anway here are the characters I've made so far that I won't use anymore:

 
New Screenie:

Yes, the name is from the horsename list as well.

yeah i'm terrible at making gui in my game. i'll still develop it of course, but if anyone at all could help me out figuring out how to position it correctly, that would be great. if no one does, and i can't figure it out, it might only be playable on a 1600x900 resolution, and that would be dumb.

The only progress I made today was mapping out every room of the game on the back of an index card.  High class stuff going on here.

exactly. i've tried most things i can think of, but nothing seems to work. the code i have looks something like
 

GUI.DrawTexture(Rect(Screen.width/2.65,Screen.height / 2,446,202), tex);

but is giving me errors at other resolutions.

Had contract work+cleaning to do today. So not much progress. Made a track loop for HEART STEALER and started on player collision.

Everyone else seems to be doing alright. Still plenty of days ahead.

Is there a way for you to preset like some padding? I wouldn't really know. Unity is way over my head.

that's what i tried to do with the code snippet i pasted a few pages back. still unsure why that didn't work, it should be dividing fine.

Here is where I am at now.  Initially I was a bit concerned about the graphical requirements of a beat'em up but now I am feeling a bit better.  I had fun tonight just laying out the basic pieces of a usable tileset.  I'll add more detail to it later.  I'm thinking the grass might be too bright of a green.  Kind of looks like Simpsons...

Team Jamie/Earl/Puppet Master has decided to mix horse names to form Downtown Ghost: Floating Alone on Zebulon Road. Mostly we have like 4 and a half music tracks done and some foundational gameplay ideas as well as thematic and aesthetic concept stuff done. I missed out on an IRC chat so they probably have more information than I do.
