THERE IS A MONSTER AT THE END OF THIS EVENT PAGE WATCH OUT

The Klik of the Month Klub meets right here on this very website on the third Saturday of every month at 4pm Pacific Time (taking daylight savings into consideration) for a two hour Klik & Play Showdown. Everyone who participates gets two hours to create something from scratch in Klik & Play. Abusing the stock objects is encouraged. If you really loathe Klik & Play you can use whatever game development platform you want. Two hours is a pretty tight time limit, though, so choose wisely!

Klik & Play is absolutely free to download, and learning it takes minutes, so everyone can get in on the action.

Want to talk to your fellow Klikwreckers? Join us on IRC -- server irc.freenode.net, channel #glorioustrainwrecks. We've also got a Mumble voice chat server -- just connect to glorioustrainwrecks.com using Mumble and you can talk to us like real human beings! Join the mayhem!

After you've made your game, you should upload it here!

For more information, check out the KotM N00B FAQ.

Sign up below if you want to get reminded by email the day before the klikkening begins!

What is up with the time

What is up with the time display? Did it really change to 4PM EDT instead of 7PM EDT or is it no longer correcting the timezone?

sergiocornaga's picture

It's showing 4PM for me too,

It's showing 4PM for me too, which probably answers your question.

SpindleyQ's picture

I turned off

I turned off auto-timezone-correction last month I think, because it auto-corrects the displayed time, but not the displayed timezone, and so people are often confused about what time it actually is supposed to be. I'll see about having a better auto-corrected display soon, but in the meantime, I feel like it beats the website outright lying.

Dattorz's picture

Personally I think it should

Personally I think it should display both the time and the timezone as local, and the timezone label should specifically state this (if you're logged in). Even with the timezone correction to the user's own time, it should still display the timezone for users who don't have their timezone correctly selected or are viewing the website as a guest.

The label should probably say something like "Your Timezone Setting:" to clear up any ambiguities.

Maybe we should just add "4

Maybe we should just add "4 pm Pacific, 7 pm Eastern" to the boilerplate for the KotM. That should cover the US pretty handily.

The guys from Europe actually know what GMT means so they can puzzle it out themselves.

I like it the way it is now.

I like it the way it is now. Perhaps if you included a link to some sort of timezone correcting service, too. Dunno.

The problem is that we now

The problem is that we now have a profile setting (timezone) which isn't being used.

SpindleyQ's picture

Alright, fine, I hacked the

Alright, fine, I hacked the event template to display the start time for your timezone. This should work even for anonymous users, astonishingly enough.

I think technically the autotimezone plugin might override the manual profile setting, actually. Haven't tested that.

It works. Good enough.

Problem! The "time until event" countdown in the sidebar changed from 15 hours to 12 hours when I logged in, so there's something wonky happening.

Dattorz's picture

Odd. Seems about right to me.

I think I'm gonna try to figure out physics in MMF2 for this one, since it works for me in Linux, unlike Construct, even right down to the pixel shader support (though the display stretching is a little buggy).

Yes, I am going to be making a follow-up to Gorillaflop! Extreme flopping action! Catchy chiptunes! Catchy almost-chiptunes! Epic boss battles! Planet stealing! Text-to-speech! Physics engine abuse! Gogogogogo!

alright im gonna join this

alright im gonna join this because sergio told me to. oh well basically im just doing it for the fun of it even though i still haven't quite figured out how the whole trainwreck deal works but i cant imagine anything better than doing a little game on a saturday evening. i havent touched klik products for ages so i hope there wont be some coding problem hindering me from finishing my game (i dont even know what im gonna do but i hope i will get an idea by tomorrow night).
i guess ill see you on irc if trillian will let me log onto it.

also hello everyone.

sergiocornaga's picture

Hey!

Trillian is what I usually use, it works well enough. I probably won't be able to make it myself, barring some kind of extraordinary occurrence. :(

Also this my first time really "working" with KnP (I've screwed around previously), so it'll be fun to see what I can come up with.

MMF 2 sucks
yeh i wanted to be cool and use mmf 2 instead of knp because i haven't used knp for ages while i had used mmf just a few years ago the last time. mmf2 is a nightmare. its really awful. i wanted to give it a try and for more than one hour im trying to import a graphic and it just doesnt work at all. i couldnt be more angry. seriously i need to find my copy of mmf 1.5 tomorrow since i remember that at least this program used to work. mmf 2 is just too fucked. sigh.

Image import in MMF2 has generally worked well for me.
