As previously posted ( and seen on FaceBook ), we are working through the development of a Flash frontend, with goals of reaching out to pure browser based users,
as well as mobile and tablet.

We are trying to do running commentary and screenshots to get feedback and ideas.

For a running development diary.

Build : 03242012.1

Whats Working : Very little.

Lobby:
- Basic chat, channel movement

Game:
- Most map functions, sack / hands / equipment can be seen.
- Terrain Animations
- "Scales" button exits back to lobby
- App "exits" if you switch away from it ( plays nice with android )

Caution:
- I have to "precache" a lot of art assets now, so if on 3g, or slower connection, the caching process can take several minutes ( and comes straight from a CDN so it costs me money right now ), so pay accounts only for the moment ( sorry ).


Note: You will need to set your device to allow installation of non - app store apks

Android app update: Please grab the latest version. 04072012.13
1) Has the entire dataset present ( Thanks Hawk! ). On the first load it saves "cached" versions of the files to your application storage directory
2) Subsequent loads load from the cached image ( if present )
3) Inventory working decently. Can drop to ground, see ground, see stats, see skills, etc.
4) Can open sack, put stuff into sack, swap hands, use an item in the hands.

Note: First load time will be slow as images are decompressed. Hopefully subsequent load times will be fast.
Note2: Fully CACHED will be about 130 megs on your phone, so you may wish to move the app to your SD card.

Thanks!

PS: Forgot to mention PAN and ZOOM now work on the lobby

The kindle fire doesn't let you update the AIR runtime, so i have built a version that INCLUDES the runtime:

http://www.drakkarzone.com/downloads/Dr ... aptive.apk


I will also try building a version agains the version of air that the kindle has included. Can one of you kindle fire guys give me that info?

Thanks
Brad

New android version up! ( Also a captive runtime version for you kindle fire users ). Check drakkar forums for where to download.

Its getting kind of exciting:
1) Macros are almost functional.. click and hold to edit ( no saving yet )
2) Critter boxes are in! It does bring the game to life..
3) Far right button that looks like a fence is the command line button.. opens/closes it
4) Click and hold on items to bring up radial menu
5) Experimental click-and-hold to bring up TERRAIN items.. thinking i'll add shortcuts here.

First install is still very slow because of image unpacking.. just may be out of options here other than an install button that says "DO YOU WANT TO UNPACK ALL IMAGES"

Please try it out!

Remember:
Normal: http://www.drakkarzone.com/downloads/Dr ... bbyAir.apk
Captive Runtime: http://www.drakkarzone.com/downloads/Dr ... aptive.apk

New APKs up for both the regular android, and the kindle fire ( captive runtime ) version.
1) "Remember" username/password at login
2) Macro buttons now know that they need a target. Click the button, click the target..
3) Macro buttons that need a target now become the "default action" until reclicked ( other buttons grey out )
4) The macro bar now greys until the round has ended, and a new command is valid.
5) Combat animations now play on critter boxes! Haha its kind of cool, check it out.
6) More of the macro editing process works. Can select "needs target" and "needs path".. although needs path not active yet.
7) The critter boxes no longer expose the name/etc for "selection", so no wierd "highlight the name" bug when clicking on them
8) Cleaned up the scroll a bit on the critter boxes. Click, hold, move to scroll up and down.

Same download links as normal! Check it out!

New Android Build: 05072012.36

1) Lockers now display on the inventory screen! Also the radial menu on left and right hand adjust "USE" for "LOCKER" when standing on a locker! ( Other than brewing this completes inventory management .. i believe )
2) The command line has been moved to the top of the terrain window
3) A new scrolling method has been implemented for the critter boxes. No scrolling until there is need, and after that its velocity sensitive, with stops for the first and last crit. Please provide feedback ( this is challenging ).

Download from normal location! Both captive and non-captive runtimes available.

New Android Build : 05102012.38

Had a good night last night. Got several bugs fixed, including the scrolling creature window ( check it out ), and the "phantom" items that would appear in other peoples hands.

New feature: ( Lets see if we want to keep this ): When you click on an NPC on the critter box thats not a shopkeeper or questor, it moves you *TOWARDS* the NPC/Player. Also, if hostile, and no current action selected, you are moved TOWARDS the npc.

More work on macros, have the "picture select" window popping up now when you edit a macro, and click on the current picture.

Also added some more loading screen messages

Both captive and regular versions are up.

- The BACK button will now take you to the LOBBY if you are in the game, and then exit the game if you are in the lobby!
- The HOME button will now exit the game, or if running BACKGROUND mode, put the game into the background.
- Display issues with experience and gold are now fixed on the ATTRIBUTES screen

- The lobby now shows the user list with the PAID/AFK/SYSOP tags correctly! The list now scrolls with a swipe up and swipe down!
- When you CLICK to move, an arrow will appear and bob at the location you requested. This really smooths things out on slower connections
- When you have entered a command, a rotating shield now appears over your character face until you are elligible to enter ANOTHER command
- Experimental code to detect disconnects, and throw you back to the login screen ( Can some people with bad connections try this please? its hard to test )
- On alt1, i've enabled the "multi update" movement feature that was in the original drakkar 2 ( only for the mobile frontend ). It is a bit eerie first, but the overall experience seems more realtime. Please comment
- Many bug fixes

- We now have a character creator! Please try this out and let me know if there are any bugs.
Note: We don't show the "bonus" values, as they are always stat-15.. and confused some people even today
- The PLAY button is now very large and pops up a PLAY/CREATE window in the middle of the screen.
- There is now an OPTIONS button which pops up the MENU/OPTIONS page ( for those devices that dont have a menu button )
- There is now an EXIT button
- Several crash bugs have been fixed

Please take a look and comment here in the forums!

Thanks

New Android Build! 09302012.105

- MACROS Now automatically save when updated!
- The lobby now word wraps
- A caching bug was fixed that prevented preloaded icons from being used by the in game drawing. This should speed up the "first" load of most major icons (ground, buildings, etc )
