RAGDOLL MATRIX (real physics)

Download from: (game(~1.8Mb) = zip, music = zip)

my host: (newest version)
Check my sig or
My site
Mirror

You don't have to download the music. The game works without them.
Description: Dodge bullets with a ragdoll. Try it. It's probably a bit challenging at first but you'll love it. Unlock all the cool moves and the last game mode. Inspiration by the dismounts (tAAt). Made with GM6 and GM_ODE.

Please tell me what you think about this game. It's my first game on the internet.

A bit difficult to move, or I'm just not used to it.
The guy reacts pretty well on the bullets! Looks like real.
You have a good job with this.
Umm, that's all I can tell about... (oh, I like your logo :D)

I've changed it to zip now. (will remove the rar soon so don't download that)
Screen shot at the same location as the game. (gif, so colors aren't that good)
And yes I've made it myself with the GM_ODE from Steffen Itterheim. (It's a physics motor)

If people would bother to go to the website they would see that the creation is now in a zip file. The music is in rar but it has been stated already that the music is not required.

Very interesting and well done RTsa. I had not been keeping up with the regdoll physical topic in the experts forum because I have little use for it, but it looks as if you have done a fairly nice job with this engine.

I think that you should set ESC to go back to the main menu and then ESC again to get out of there.

My poor guy feels rather spineless (just like a ragdoll, I suppose). He can barely ever stay on his feet, and when he is moving he either looks drunk, like he is trying to work out, or attempting (poorly, I might add) a few moves that only dancers from the 70's and 80's dared to perform! :D

My only suggestion... since practice mode is just that... for practicing and fooling around, it would be nice for you to add a variable to increase/decrease the speed of all movements... not by too much, but to be able to make the same movements with a "doll" that could be moving a bit faster could make it feel a little more realistic.

All in all... a very nice job from what I can see :D

Now uploaded a new version (v.1.01).
Added: Speed Adjuster (use + and - in the menu)
Esc now returns to menu first.

Thanks for helping me make this a better game. :D

Dude, this game is awesome! This is an example of a good idea successfully carried over to GM. The movement is very nice, and the GFX are good as well.

My only suggestions are
1. Put the music in a seperate .zip folder. Please.
2. Maybe make the ragdoll look like Neo or something....
3. Make it so you can record your movements

Overall, you did an excellent job with this game. I give it an 8.5/10, keep up the good work :D

This game is very funny the doll is just like some limp body and I agree with Magicman657 on the music being in a zip file and making the doll look like neo.

I give it 8/10

Very, VERY fun game. I don't see why this isn't getting so many replies. I like the challenge in trying to unlock new moves by getting less than 4 damage. It's the most frustrating yet addictive thing since Jumper!

I don't know why I keep smiling and marvelling at the ragdoll while playing the game. I especially love the satisfaction at dodging a bullet inches (pixels!) from the ragdolls head :) . So far I have only unlocked the Still ability, but I'm still trying to get the others.

So, to wrap everything up: Download this if you want pure fun. A definite 10/10.

EDIT: Oh yeah, why do you have a pig with a nosebleed as your logo? Also, it's quite tedious waiting for the splash screens at the start. PLEASE let us skip it. ;)

Great physics on that model!
Although it's a bit hard to get used to the controls, it's really fun!
Good work!

As you who have played the game propably know you can unlock abilities by surviving easy, medium or hard. My questions are: Has anyone got all the abilities yet? What are your best scores?
If damage exeeds 3 (damage >= 4) you are considered dead and have not survived.
My best scores:
easy: 0
medium: 0
hard: 3
dodge this: 7
Hint: You don't have to play the normal game mode to unlock something. Crossfire is harder than normal (just my opinion), but it might be easier to play massive fire mode (if you figure out a good tactic).
If someone does the graphics of Neo or tells me where to get them, I'll probably put them to the game. (of course the creator will be credited)
As for the game recording...I don't think I'm able to do that, sorry.
Also the music as zip...I'd do it but my host is down right now and that also means you probably can't download from there. Use chaos3d's link. I'm sorry for this inconvieniece.

Could someone please host the game for a while cos I'm having real trouble with everything right now. My host got cracked, he won't get it online for a few days.:huh: I've tried to get it uploaded somewhere else but now my email is also jammed.::lmao:: This prevents me efficiently from getting the files uploaded. The only link working now is chaos3d's (though it was too offline for a while and it's not the newest version)

edit: everything should be working now. check sig for dl-link

I checked it a moment ago and it worked just fine.

OK, I will upload Ragdoll Matrix 1.01 for you, and you can thank Rocketsoft, because I'm using his sweet uploader...I also ask that someone use it and get the music uploaded there as well, because the .zip file I got doesn't have it.

RS Upload (for whoever is goign to upload the music in a seperate .zip folder)
http://rocketsoft.gm...cc/RSUpload.php

I'll edit when it's done uploading.

EDIT- It's done uploading, so here it is

Copy and paste it....(Forum doesnt like this link)
http://rocketsoft.gm...Ragdoll Matrix1[1].zip

It doesnt have the music though, so someone should upload it as a .zip file....

I've only unlocked Stiff so far (beating Easy mode) You DON'T have to play normal game mode? OK then, I'll try and unlock everything in Practice mode :chikin .

*gasp* The creator of the game couldn't beat his own game? At least for Dodge This anyway :)

Yeah, I survived medium! I discovered a tactic which makes it much easier. Just stay on the left side of the screen and keep moving up and down. If you release the zero gravity button you'll go down faster. If you have Stiff, it'll be MUCH easier. Just bump yourself a bit until you compress yourself into a little ball. Then, while holding the stiff button, do the tactic above.

Anyway, as I said before good game. I know I'll keep coming back to it to play some more.

Thanks very much for your help Magicman657. Now my email is working again and I've uploaded the newest version of the game.

changes: some minor changes. you probably won't even notice them. a bit more stability.

Thanks to everyone for their patience. This host looks promising.
Game modes that can be used for unlocking by the way are:
normal crossfire massive fire
Oh yeah I got 6 at dodge this. :)

"Error 404 - File not found"

Try removing the spaces. Many hosts hate spaces in filenames.
