Hey guys, especially @max.
I’m Andrei, I’ve been developing apps/sites/scripts/games/whatever(nothing fancy) for years and now it’s finally the time I get into HTML5.
I saw the Tanx project a few days ago and I decided to mess around with it. I never liked Node.js but guess what. After seeing that great server code for Tanx and realizing that there is a great engine with a nice editor(PlayCanvas) for HTML5, I instantly got in love with HTML5 and Node.js
I’ve messed around with the editor, changed some colors, made the shield be the same colors as the team and added some new weapon types(shotgun, sniper, minigun) to see how hard it would be to work with those new tools. Guess what? It’s insanely easy and fast, it literally took me minutes. So, if anyone sees this post and is not yet sure if they should start using PlayCanvas/Node.js, do it!
Anyway, Max, I was wondering if we could get our hands on your latest update of Tanx, or is it no longer a public project? The client side movement prediction, dynamic level generating and the new tank designs are just amazing.
