General Discussion / Re: Using the engine as an artist.
« on: Feb 05, 19, 09:28:08 PM »
Good evening,
    I am sorry for not responding to your email. I did look through my history under Support and the Support forms and was not able to find one by you. However, let us see if I and others from the community might be able to help.

    First, I would like to know what you mean by templates? What kind of templates are you looking for?
On asking that, we do have sample art to help you learn how the engine works that goes along with several tutorials on the Wiki.

    We also have reference worlds to give you an idea of how to make game systems. HJ Ref, FPS Ref, Social Ref and Space Ref.

    I would also like to let you know that we have a great active community on Discord that I am very proud of. They are always willing to help point you in the right direction; ranging from wiki links to samples to assistance.

    Please feel free to ask anything else you like. Will do my best to answer any questions I am able.

Sarrene'

Good afternoon Aken,
    Yes, IF did purchase The Repopulation, however that is being developed by a separate team from the HeroEngine engineers.

    The Repopulation remains to be a stand alone game and is not part of HeroEngine or its assets. I am sorry. We do have and include some placeholder assets both in engine and as separate downloads in your dashboard under "Additional Downloads". This includes a couple characters and some static art tile sets.

Regards,
Sarrene'

General Discussion / Re: Where is the Backend?

Good afternoon Aken,
Ah, you have a site up already? Please feel free to share the link and I can look into it a little to get an idea of what type of work would be needed. I have not used or worked with Drupal in many years. However, there is no reason that help could not be obtained from someone in the community when you are ready to start integrating your game and your users into your site.

I have not looked it up, but have you already started on your game? If so, what is the name of your game or the worlds name?

Regards,
Sarrene'

Yes, I saw, the problem is how to authenticate the users of my website to the game server  ;D

You can create your own plugin to fit what ever CMS or system you are using for your own website. This can be either through authentication plugin you create as a plugin in HE and then for your site (php, json, xml, your choice). The same thing can be done via steams API as well.

Once you get to that point there are several here that have done just this in various ways to work how they want with their system. We do not currently have a specific built in plugin for this purpose as there are so many different types of CMS's that people use, including pure HTML pages (yes there are still several that write their own back end for websites) not to mention so many different versions of each.

Here is a small list from Wikipidia that gives you an idea of what people use for their websites:
CMS: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_content_management_systems
Forum: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_Internet_forum_software

To get more information on this you can view:
http://hewiki.heroengine.com/wiki/HeroScript_Extension_Plugin
http://hewiki.heroengine.com/wiki/Functions

In the future we do plan on having a few more tools available that can work with a few of the major CMS and forum software. However, at this time my engineers are focused on getting the last bits of d3d11/12 done so we can make a nice major update for all clients on live.

At this time, anyone with web development experience (php, python, xml, html) should be able to create a nice plugin to authenticate against your games users and display in the way that works for your site. Please do note that security and privacy of your users is important, so be careful what you expose.

Regards,
Sarrene'

(copy of the other post but may help in regards to the server and networking aspects)

Not so much a tutorial video, but these can show how the built in networking and servers work.

Collaborative video: (This was done last minute with only a few hours to plan and total build time from start to finish was 2 hours and 40 minutes):
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qgKY9fe4Djk

This is a Dev video of us rebuilding an area from start to finish. (This was done with all of us on line at the same time working in the same area in real time): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T4i6_l6xAso

Please note that part of the subscription and the royalties covers the networking and servers. You do not ever need to touch that code at all. It is already built in.

Good morning,
With a $99 subscription you get two seats and yes, all this in stages starting with your group and user management in your dashboard.

Hello and good day AkenStyle,
When you purchase a subscription to HeroEngine, you will have a dashboard on the site that will allow you to access your world, permission groups, users, etc.

If you go into Alpha or Beta while still on the cloud, you will have a full users list as well, and can add or remove them, as well as what permissions you want to give them (general player, QA, GM, etc).

Once your game goes live, you will also be given additional back end capability for things like Store Page customization's, customizing your micro-transactions (if you choose to have them in game) and other such features to help you manage your game. Currently, this includes your user management as explained above as well as Master Controls for your games server. In the future you will also have access to controlling your server through an easy to use web interface.

I hope that helps. Please feel free to ask any other questions you might have!

:)

I used his old ones and they were really nice! Simple cli lines brought into a nice interface to add to the Ease of Life.

I will check this one out when I have a chance. Thanks! and great work!! :D

Ah okay, that one makes sense. I know when we did similar before for character select and creation, we already had the animations in place.

thanks! This will help a lot for ideas for the new Granny update later next year as well as helping those that might forget to add the animation file in.

:)

Thaz, I have not seen that error. Could you tell me where this is or what you have done to expose that error. :)

Thanks!
