    dear eric

    nice work you’ve done.

    i had the BSREMOTE app, and bombsquad app, but i really don’t know hot to start the game, bsremote searching for the game, the main game needs a controller, is there any third party needed ? xbox controller or another screen or pc ?

    thanks alot, and sorry for the stupid question.

    • Eric says:

      Hmm you should just need to launch the game (on your Mac, OUYA, or FireTV) and then it should show up as joinable in BSRemote (provided you’re on the same wifi network and there’s no firewall blocking things). You shouldn’t need any other controllers or anything.. does that help?

    Meteorshower was ahit with my friends. Unfortunately it offers no option like epic mode.. really miss that but now im interested in modding myself hope to see lots of mods 😉

    • Eric says:

      Nice! Its pretty easy to add an epic-mode option – just take a look at the script for Assault or one of the other game types that has it.. I’m hoping to get the modding community kicked into high gear soon; should hopefully result in some fun stuff 🙂

    Hi,

    I’m gonna be learning Python just so I can mod this awesome game!

    Btw, are there any sources where existing mods can be downloaded, or can we only play mods which we’ve created ourselves.

    Sorry, I Googled but didn’t find any immediate results for existing mods.

    • Eric says:

      Glad you like it!

      There’s not too many modding resources available just yet; mainly this site and a few examples at http://www.files.froemling.net/bombsquad/mods/

      I’m hoping to kick things into high gear soon.. I’m working towards a few big launches of the game starting in September and then I’d like to circle back and make some more modding examples for people..

    Wowie, haven’t looked onto this website in a while, but i’ll give this a try on the weekend. I hope i get my Ouya to behave, it is a rebellious little device once in while.

    Another question: I’m an experienced 3D artist (around 15 years of gamedev now)… Is it possible to mod the gfx? I’ve seen the snowman and the santa models and would be interested in adding custom player models. Any hints on that?

    Nevertheless great game, it’s the number 1 party game, people demand playing it by now!

    A awesome game with python modding? I’m in tears…

    Decided to make a simple mod to add some more “oomph” to the Android version, you know, for science.

    Vibrate on bomb detonation
    Dl: https://www.dropbox.com/s/1riswb0klrr7ocn/bsBomb.py?dl=0

    Requires root (to bypass android manifest) and your device to support vibration.

    Thank you Eric for the amazing app and incorporate this if you like!

  6. Derek says:

    This one doesn’t require root but does require the android.permission.VIBRATE permission to be in your AndroidManifest.xml

    Ever wondered “how could we make the race game mode more explosive?”
    If not, there is something wrong with you.
    But if so, I have the solution!

    Meteor Race
    As the name implies, it’s the Meteor Shower and Race game modes combined.
    As with Meteor Shower, things get hectic pretty fast, so I recommend only 2 (or 4 if you’re quick) laps.

    As always, thanks to Eric for the game and 99% of the code behind this mode.

    While playing this game with my friends, I took up learning a bit of python coding from here so I could make modded gametypes for me and my friends to play. These gametypes are what I’ve made so far.

    Landmine Deathmatch:

    Boxing Deathmatch:
    https://www.dropbox.com/s/wzyrijptqhr22si/bsBoxingMatch.py?dl=0

    TNT Deathmatch:
    https://www.dropbox.com/s/qoux8gnna0ccb9b/bsTNTMatch.py?dl=0

    With the TNT Deathmatch and Landmine Deathmatch, I changed the default bomb mines and TNT boxes. I also enabled the player to have a lot more than 3 boxes/mines out. For Boxing Deathmatch, its exactly what it sounds like. Everyone spawns with boxing gloves by default and you can’t use bombs. I’ve tested and played them all with my friends, and they all work. Hope you like them!☺

    Cool!
    -I think there should be maps with parts of the map held up with ropes or spinning platforms.
    -A one-use rocket launcher power-up would be cool.
    -For replays, there should be rewind, pause/play, and fast forward.
    -Maybe there should be a map maker with block models similar to the map already in the game.
    -Make it easier to edit gametype option within the game, kinda like Halo custom game options.

    Hi Eric. Thank you for this game. It’s really funny. We loved that. I am from iran. And I have a question!
    My best ping in this game is 160 and I can’t play my best can you help me? How can I make better ping or(low ping. Sorry my English Isn’t very well ). and it’s usually upper then 200. This means that I play slow motion . I test the games reload benchmark that it shows 114 or… . My net has problem? can I do anything I setting or downloading any app?

    • Eric says:

      Hi Farzam,
      Glad you like the game.
      I’m hoping to rework the networking at some point so that even laggy games feel more responsive, but for now the feel of the game is very dependent on your ping. Greater than 200 is not very good unfortunately.. It probably just means that you are not very close to any servers. If you have access to a PC or linux box it could be worth hosting your own server which should give you a good ping since you’d be close to it. (happy to help set that up if so).

    Hi Eric, I love ur game! When trying to load some of the mods here, the game says it requires API 4, is there a way to update the python mod files to make them compatible? Thanks
