Hi guys, by any chance does someone here know a workaround a cross origin error using JavaScript? Jsonp wont provide any results and the server is not CORS compatible.

Why not make a game with the resources you have?

DragonMarx @ 8/17/2015 18:23 commented on "The Tree"

I like it! You should try experimenting with line patterns using a very limited palete and black :o

My question was "Is having the 8 larger than the rest of the text good because of font design?"

Mind providing a screenshot? All the browsers I've tested on (even mobile) have this: http://i.imgur.com/MvOGiGV.png... dunno if im not getting what youre laying down or noobish css is making this inconsistent across browsers/sizes.

Im not well versed in font sort of things but is having the 8 a different size good? 

DragonMarx @ 8/12/2015 16:14 commented on Big Bird

whats wrong about the alignment?

DragonMarx @ 8/12/2015 10:43 commented on Big Bird

Yeah I've come to accept the fact that on pixeljoint, chances are that you're pieces aren't gonna receive much attention unless they're really good or really lucky. Community is pj's strength, imo.

DragonMarx @ 7/29/2015 20:17 commented on Big Bird



inb4 wow thats really neat, thats if the pixel art is smooth and good enough haha.

Btw your preview image is broken : o

DragonMarx @ 7/28/2015 11:58 commented on Big Bird

Ah so like stratego!

Also, clicking the link in your messages to get to the chatterbox results in an error 500

DragonMarx @ 7/27/2015 17:56 commented on Big Bird

No I mean is the game played like chess where both sides have the same pieces and advance?

DragonMarx @ 7/27/2015 10:32 commented on Big Bird

@ParkerBabyDiaperCompany is that like chess?

DragonMarx @ 7/6/2015 07:36 commented on Ahhh!!!

The dithering on the top can work but you have to create a transition of sorts between the patterns. Otherwise nice piece!

I'm trying cross country after my spectacular failure at the 400 last year... been running for about half an hour every day, turning the speed up a mph every minute (4-9mph) in an attempt to get my cardio back up from being lazy.

EDIT: Has the PJ google search been broken for a while now?

I'm keeping it as two because the transparency aren't part of the images themselves. If I had used transparency to change the shape of the canvas, it counts, but in this case it's just for the sake of seperating images.

DragonMarx @ 5/17/2015 19:11 commented on Night Pearl 64x64px game mockup

wow, makes me kinda wish this was real haha. I think it'd make for a really interesting game that could be played on very low resolution mediums, i.e one of those business cards with a small screen

DragonMarx @ 5/17/2015 18:29 commented on Big Bird

People either don't get it or are on the bandwagon "reddit is stupid because i went frontpage for a bit". Main point of reddit is being able to browse links relevant to subject matter through the organization of subreddits. Some subreddits are worse than others, but the general idea is that you find a subreddit that has something you want to keep tabs on and subscribe. Reading comments is more of a bother if you're actually looking out for updates or interesting information. Subreddits with more useful content such as /r/science or /r/technology have very useful comments on the link that is posted. In fact, several subreddits are moderated as to filter out stupid comments.

Of course, if you browse frontpage or poorly maintained subreddits, you're going to find a lot of "College students with poor grammar posting political news, sex jokes, and pictures of animals".

Generally speaking, you want unity throughout the game, and a change in resolution kinda breaks the unity. If you can make it work, you're good, but keep in mind noise is much more noticeable since its the only 1x part of the game. I'd suggest to stick to large shapes and avoid thin/small ones to reduce noise and maintain the 2x aesthetic(i.e the things you have on the sides/corners are really thin and are in conflict with the game, especially since its the border of the ui)

Edit: TL;DR if you're not changing your mind, avoid clusters/lines with a thicknes of 1px. You have a lot of black lines on the scroll bar/outlines/etc., get rid of them.

2nd Edit: I see you have a LOT of blank space below the preview... if you wanted the change in resolution due to not enough space for information, I'd say it's worth more to keep it 2x and increase the ui a bit since you have left over space. Maybe creating mini icons for items instead of their actual sprites will help with that too.
