Love and game updates are in the air

Two quick updates:

1.) My QA side got the best of me. I'm using a bug tracker for my project. As always, feel free to send bugs and feature suggestions my way by any means (RMN, email, forums, etc.) or even post them directly in the tracker (registration not required), as that's where they will eventually end up anyway.

2.) Dedicated to those who constantly tell me I shouldn't be doing all these stupidly absurd workarounds in RM2k3, I've posted a new video of a gameplay enhancement to the mine cart minigame.

That looks great! Looks more accurate too. The original version caused me so much grief.

Also, a bug tracking system like that looks like something all indie game developers could benefit from using. Would be cool to have something like that on RMN gamepages someday...

Thanks, it's definitely more accurate now, but it's still not perfect. Nonetheless, it's definitely more playable now. When you fall, rather than starting over you get set back to the last checkpoint.

Thanks melly! I used flyspray, and if you have a server with mysql and php it's a breeze to set up.
You've done some crazy stuff for such a limited system, DH. Nice work.

That minecart game looks pretty cool! Reminds me of Mine Cart Madness =D

Man, you are GOOD! I liked the old one, but this one looks even better! I'll make sure to start from scratch next time so I can see all the other improvements you've made.

This is awesome! The minecart and rollercoaster levels in the old DKC games were my favorite ones back in the day, heh.

Thank you for the positive feedback! Things are shaping up quite nicely as I finished up the low-end version of the minigame (basically none of the cool effects and a slower display rate) as the updates do demand some processing power and I want the new version to be as accessible as possible.

It's sort of an inside joke. I don't seriously think that. Haha but that doesn't mean going go give any part of this project less than my all!
