Telekinesis Games


Awesome Trance!!! I was able to get it to turn until the point between the 2 and 3 was facing me. Any chance you could get it to allow mouse control? For example, being able to grab the wheel and spin it freely and once it slows to a stop it'll kick the code back into action? I think it'll give that added realism and sense of fluidity I'm craving. :P

Thanks for the feedback limpidprogress!

I've spent all day trying to make that happen. Hope this update helps!

  • Psiwheel now spins fluidly and seems to feel quite similar to a real psiwheel's behavior. (at least with my experience) I was able to get a good bit of momentum going while practicing with this version even though there's a 1/2000 delta second chance for it to even spin. Let me know how it feels for you guys.

I finally got to testing it at home. I had tested it at work but wasn't sure if I had a powerful enough graphics card. For some reason these make my fan go at 100% on my laptop. Anyway, I'm confused at how you've got it coded. I know I shouldn't care but for some reason I do. lol. Probably because I'm wanting to see how much is me and how much is the logic in the code that is affecting it. I got it to turn enough for me to kind of see some of the 4-side going counter clockwise. The interesting thing for me though is that I have a tendency to make it go back to 2 since that's the starting side. Almost like I feel an invisible elastic tether pulling it back. Also I am seeing larger swings but also seeing the larger movements get cut off short. So I'm not entirely certain if I'm making it stop quickly and also if I'm the cause for it to stop spinning freely at about the same rotational distance. What does "1/2000 delta second" mean? Is it polling for a random number for each of those units for movement decisions? Hard to put my thoughts into words so I'm sorry if I'm being confusing.

 

EDIT: One odd behavior about the game is that when I hit esc it closes the game instead of going to the options menu and then reopens at least 3 times during the process of trying to turn off bobbing and the hands. So very weird. I have a GTX 675m graphics card if that helps.
