Title: Play Man's Chew: The Diabolo Video Game
Post by: tomangleberger on October 01, 2005, 03:19:28 AM
To celebrate the greatness of the Man's Chew video, I have made a Man's Chew video game.
You play as Sean performing daring feats of 2d or 3d. Go for wild siteswaps and rack up huge scores.

You'll need the Flash plug-in.

Hope you folks enjoy it and please send me your high scores, suggestions, etc...

that was fun, i think i would have been better if there wasnt the catch factor invovled. well, both versions. one to just mess around with siteswaps and one to actually catch them with moving and such.

but that definatly entertained me for a few minutes

Post by: Dracodragon on October 01, 2005, 03:33:40 AM
Haha, pretty neat. (sean moves very fast)
I also put a diabolo in a video game of mine...which is not quite done yet. Look at my avatar, that is in my game, but you fight people using a diabolo as one of the characters.

Post by: Ben on October 01, 2005, 04:25:15 AM
hah neet

it would be nice if it were closer because its kind of hard to see as it is

also im not able to go all the way over the edge of the picture

last thing the throws dont seem very actuate like if you leave it throwing 2s and dont move they will go to far and will drop im not shore if this was intentional which would be understandable but yeah…

fun stuff

punkerpanda, if you want to just mess with siteswaps the mad french posse has a ss simulator at http://artofdiabolo.com/dsss.php

haha this thing is cool, but it's TINY....at 1280x1024 i am straining my eyes to see it.....want to make a big version? perhaps 2 or 3 times the size? :D

edit: you should also make an option for 3D....sean can do 3 ya know, plus that'd add a little flavor.

Post by: James on October 01, 2005, 09:13:48 AM
Nice game!  Only suggestions I would give is make it bigger (it doesn't matter if it looks a little pixelated ;)) and perhaps allow the use of the keyboard to move Sean instead of or aswell as the mouse.  And also, it let me catch two at once.

Post by: Arjan on October 01, 2005, 09:31:12 AM
Make the screen size bigger.
Make the controls better... mine did not work on the numpad, that would be better.
I would love a 3d version in the future.
when you throw a diabolo, make sure the next throw with that diabolo is just a 2, or based upon the users choise. make sure the 1 is just 1 one ;)
make the option for pirouettes if possible.
Title: Play Man's Chew: The Diabolo Video Game
Post by: Pete on October 01, 2005, 10:28:31 AM
Bigger
More diabs
1 sun instead of just carrying on and the same for all the other numbers, when you throw one 4 the next time you catch that diab it throws it as a 4 as well, this is annoying.
Pirouettes?

someone should make an rpg like tony hawk underground except different.   Like we should have a person start out with harlequin and some crappy tricks then u practice and get better and compete in a very small competion to get money to buy better diabolos and what not.  Practice till you get as good as the MFP and compete with them in the WJF competition.  What do u think of my idea?
Title: Play Man's Chew: The Diabolo Video Game
Post by: Pete on October 01, 2005, 01:34:07 PM
J_J777, its a nice idea, i have thought about this for a long, long time. I just can't think of a decent way to control the diabs in anyway at all, unless you stick with siteswap like the mans chew game(which is really cool) Button combo's is all i can think of. Any other ways would be ridiculously complicated i think. The only other problem is there would be limited tricks, unless you added some kind of trick builder, which would also be very complicated. But its a great idea! I would love to see it happen!

Maybe this subject deserves a new thread....
Title: Play Man's Chew: The Diabolo Video Game
Post by: tomangleberger on October 01, 2005, 02:50:34 PM
Thanks a lot for trying it out. With your help, maybe we can shape it up into a nice little game. Here are answers and excuses to some of your comments:

1) Yes, there is a built in error factor -- error2=((d2._x-sean._x+28)/10)+((power2-2)/10)+sunerror;  -- without it you never have to move and the game really isn't much fun. I'll make a button to disable it, though if you want.

2) You can't go all the way to the left side of the screen, because there's a car parked in Sean's way.  Why? You'll have to ask Sean.

3)Thanks for the input on the controls. Would you like it better if every throw was a two by default, unless you asked for something else?

4) I will try to make the next version bigger. I was limited by the size of the original Mans Chew video.

5)I'll definitely have three diabolos in next version. I love the idea for an RPG, but that's a lot of labor. The trick builder is another great idea.

6) The new high score is Jake's at 39,000. Jake, how did you do it?

7) Keep the suggestions coming and I'll get to work on version 0.9

Thanks,
Tom

The rpg idea is a realy good idea but it could take months/years to build, it would also be very complex. Another possible idea would be for a game like runescape but again complex/time consuming. Any budding game producers out there?

Ha! You crazy cheaters caught me. Well done. The "sun" isn't really a sun, just a low throw, so the computer didn't realize what you were up to. I'll fix that loophole in the next version.

Jake's 6,000 point score is still the highest I've heard of!

Post by: tomangleberger on October 02, 2005, 04:18:21 AM
Okay, here's a new version with THREE diabolos. It's really hard! I had to tweak the physics just to make it reasonable.
I'll be very interested to see what score you can get with 3.

Also changed a few other things, closed the "jake cheat" and changed the controls so that throws default to 2 for 2high and 3 for 3high.

Thanks, your comments really improved it, I think.

Sorry, making it bigger will take awhile. That's a huge task, since my program is full of magic numbers based on the original frame size.

It would be great if there was a game like that... even better if there was a full 3D diabolo game, with all the tricks, tournaments, create a juggler, create a trick etc. :D.  But those would be way too much work for a few people to create... a whole company would probably spend years creating either of them :(.

It's made in Macromedia Flash.

Post by: tomangleberger on October 02, 2005, 03:11:27 PM
If anyone else wants to try their hand at an RPG or a more detailed game, I'll be glad to share my code with you, sloppy as it is.

I might have a go at a simple RPG myself, where Sean would have to complete certain tasks to move from level to level. E-mail me if you have any ideas about what these tasks, levels might be. Example: Sean travels to France to meet Priam, but must first get his attention by doing a hard siteswap. Then Priam teaches him a trick. etc...
Or, while filming Smile, Sean has to do three tricks in a row in 30 seconds. etc...

Two-high is relatively simple to program, but other tricks would be very difficult, since the computer would have to keep track of the string's position, wraps, etc... Either that or the tricks would have to be painstakingly faked with animation.
It would really take some doing. Even adding the piroutte is going to be a chore.

Of course, a pro company would just set up a motioncapture session with Sean and then recreate him and all his tricks in polygons.

----

until then, the game is still at http://www.cecebell.com/chickenguy/manschew.html

and Pete has the current high score.

It doesn't sound like cheating. You're still having to move around to catch them right?
I messed with the error equation last night, perhaps I've made it too easy. I haven't had much time to actually play it.

I used Flash MX - but i imagine any flash would do.
i learned from a book called flash game design demystified.
also many good websites on flash actionscript.
helps if you already know c++, but you can start with flash and it's tutorials. it can be really frustrating at times. kind of like learning the #$%#@ fan.

Title: Play Man's Chew: The Diabolo Video Game
Post by: James on October 04, 2005, 06:01:21 PM
I scored 44,754 using the 60 siteswap... then my eyes started hurting so i stopped :P

I have two ideas for the game:

1) You could add a php/MySQL high scores table... if you can do that much in flash then learning how to intergrate php and mysql shouldn't be too much work (I hope ;)).  It would be a lot better because scores would be added automatically, and people could see the top 100 or whatever scores instead of just the top 1.

2) You could extend the sky higher, because I often find myself throwing the diabolos out of the frame.  With the clone brush tool in Photoshop or something it would be pretty easy to make more sky.  But, would that mean you'd have to do a lot of recoding because lots of numbers are hardcoded to the current height?  Because if so, I understand why you don't raise the sky ;)

i sooo like the 51 siteswap in this game.. but a bit of hardwork for the fingers (you know, still pressing the 5 and 1).. at least it's something different than just "sometimes" press the 6  :twisted:   :D
Title: Play Man's Chew: The Diabolo Video Game
Post by: Pete on October 04, 2005, 08:09:01 PM

Title: Play Man's Chew: The Diabolo Video Game
Post by: tomangleberger on October 05, 2005, 07:33:00 PM
Here's the new version:

BIGGER - I can barely fit it on my laptop screen.

BETTER?- I hope so. There are many rules changes. No more high scores by holding down one key. You've got to mix it up. Suns get big scores and you get more points for doing a sun under a low throw. I'm also experimenting with a new error equation. It's pretty hard.

BETA- Thanks alot for playtesting. I've used or plan to use many of your ideas. Keep sending them in. (James, I really want to figure out the high score list. Stay tuned.)

Title: Play Man's Chew: The Diabolo Video Game
Post by: James on October 05, 2005, 07:39:35 PM
I can code quite a bit of php and MySQL, so if there's anything I could help with to do with that just let me know :).

And by the way, in the new version it lets you do suns with more than one diabolo if you press 1 before the start.  If you start the 2D version and hold 1 then your score rockets up and the diabolos are never dropped...

Thanks, James, I've got that bug fixed now.

I'd love to accept your help on the High Score List. My problem is that my server won't allow PHP or PERL scripts. Any ideas for a workaround? Possibly when the program is finally done, someone will host it for me and we can get the list then.

Errors have been turned off to make testing easier. (it's kind of fun that way!)

Siteswaps are working - I think.  Physics have been totally reworked. test out your favorite siteswaps, please.

Also, please test high score list. be sure to enter your name in the lower right hand corner. (Still working on this interface.) Click on link to visit high scores page.

This new one is great fun but you seem to be able to do invalid siteswaps.
But you can do some outrageous things because they're invalid.

Siteswaps now work pretty well. You should be able to do most legal sequences and a few illegal ones, too. Thanks to Pete for sharing his siteswap knowledge. Basically, I had to forget the physics and fudge the numbers until the timing worked out.

Hey James, can you reset the highscore list? I can't get it to clear.
Title: Play Man's Chew: The Diabolo Video Game

Much better. Siteswaps are working fine. Slight problem though. All the throws don't come back to the right hand (left side of the screen) far enough which makes you drift to the right. IF you start and just leave it you will see what i mean.

Ok, cleared it.  All you have to do is delete the .txt file and it will create a new blank one.

Kind of wierd though, as I deleted the file, then played the game once and got a high score, all in the space of about a minute, but when i got to the high score list there were already 5 scores by Sean  :?

The siteswaps are great now though :D.  Only it seems that the diabolos seem to drift quite a bit to the right of the screen.

Edit The high scores table is filled up now and I'm the only person in it whose name isn't set as Sean.  Perhaps you should make the name part a bit more obvious ;)

The game lets you get away with all sorts of naughty behavior when you are throwing low. I could cancel that, but I think it gives you a bit more flexability.
 But when you throw higher than that, you've got to make clean catches.

There used to be a way to do 3 low using the 2 key, but I can't get it started anymore. Anybody else tried it?

Thanks a lot for playtesting folks! I think we're almost done.

 I still want to add the Tony Hawk-style challenges though. Such as "Impress Priam - turn a 531 into a 642."

Any suggestions?

nice work, the high score list is great, i reckon 10.000 points is definately possible

might be a long shot but for the 'RPG style' game you have to earn the third diabolo by doing good with 2d, and you start off by only being able to do lower siteswaps and have to 'learn' new tricks as you progress, or spend points on them.

You're right the 3 low thing is gone.
I will try to find another way.

i just got the score 4965, which should put me 9th or 10th of the leader board.

maybe you didn't set your name before you got the high score? i've done it a couple of tiem so sean has scores courtesy of me.

It should be changed really so that if you do not set your own name you cannot be added to the high score board, because at the moment, sean, the default name is getting scores from other people.

btw congrats sean for the top score, very good

hey just a request

could u delete my 70000 point score of the high score list

because every siteswap i jus did was worth like twice as many points so its not really fair if my 70000 one stays up

but my other scores were normal

I don't see why you're 70,000 points isn't valid, esp. since this is the beta version.
Please explain exactly how you got it and perhaps we can decide whther that should be legal or not.

Well i was playing it for ages. Then i started again with 2d and i was just doing normal throws and the score would go up a thousand in a few seconds. It wouldnt stop like it ussually does if you do the same throw over and over .

so  i just went to a different window and did something else for a minute

so i dont really think its fair

Well, I've tried to recreate that, but can't get it to happen. I think I may know how to code for it though.  Good job finding a loophole, Squiggle, that's what playtesting is all about.

Let's leave the score up there, maybe someone will find a way to beat it.

Sadly that person won't be me, I can't get on the list at all!

got an idea: it's kinda popular to add some slow-motion (a.k.a. Bullet-Time) to action, rpg,... games. what about adding slow-mo to Man's Chew? I mean if someone is good he should get some 'energy' and then use it (i.e. for slow-mo).

J_J777, its a nice idea, i have thought about this for a long, long time. I just can't think of a decent way to control the diabs in anyway at all, unless you stick with siteswap like the mans chew game(which is really cool) Button combo's is all i can think of. Any other ways would be ridiculously complicated i think. The only other problem is there would be limited tricks, unless you added some kind of trick builder, which would also be very complicated. But its a great idea! I would love to see it happen!

Maybe this subject deserves a new thread....

maybe just maybe one day someone makes it for the wii hehe

Sorry the game got dropped, here it is back again*:
http://www.riddleburger.com/flash/manschew.html (http://www.riddleburger.com/flash/manschew.html)

Sadly, the high score function no longer functions. (The scoring never functioned all that well to begin with.) But I find it fun to see how long one can keep 531 going on the 3d setting.

By the way, if you only played the game when I first put it up, there were a lot of improvements. It turned out I didn't know a thing about 3d siteswaps. (And I still don't, but Pete talked me through it.)

While searching my hard drive for the game, I found the Man's Chew video. I hadn't seen it in a while. AFTER 5 YEARS IT STILL ROCKS! Those are old-school new-school moves now, but man they are sublime. Sean had his 2d stuff fluid and tweaked out.

*Let me know if there are any problems. It's working on my machine, but who knows....

That cracks me up every time. I looked again for the photo I took of the wall but couldn't find it. I know I've seen it recently. I'm not sure if I sent it to you at one point. At least I have good body position photos now if you want them from the shirt silhouette shoots.

I throw far better siteswaps in the game than real life! Although I tried and tried and kept failing at 4515141. Yeap, seems pretty realistic. :P

As always, the cursing is a nice realistic touch.

sweet, i never got to play it last time, really fun to work out multiple high throws in a row (with a make believe 360 underneath)

Still find it a bit hard to control the throws.

Still find it a bit hard to control the throws.

Me, too. I wish i could think of a better, more fluid, way of having the user input the throw number. I'm afraid that if I used the mouse for input, you'd end up throwing a 3 instead of a 4 or whatnot. But it could hardly be more frustrating than the way it works now.

Maybe when Sean does a new video, I'll try to update the graphics and try to fix the controls...
