How to Make a Rhythm Game

---

来自中国的玩家们,向你们问好!十分感谢你们的热心捐款(当然,如想免费下载游戏,在下 载界面中选择"No thanks"开头的链接即可)。游戏中有一些额外的操作按键,特此说明:在选关时,按S键选关将进入慢速模式,按D键将进入加速模式。在关卡进行途中, 按大小写切换键Caps Lock键可以开启双人游戏模式,第二名玩家按"L"键来进行游戏。

假如在游戏途中发现有不同步的现象,请您(1) 用力按空格键,以能听到按键声为佳,(2)假如您使用的是Chrome浏览器,建议换用Firefox或其他内核的浏览器,因为Chrome自带的Pepper Flash插件与游戏不太兼容。祝您玩得愉快!Translation provided by 谜之声.


--
Many, many hours have been spent making the engine accurate enough to

support a margin of error of a few hundredths of a second. After extensive

testing we found a calibration that worked for all browsers, except Chrome.

(If you are hitting bang on beat it will still be within the 'perfect' margin on

Chrome, it will just be less forgiving to late timings and more forgiving to hitting

early)

IF YOU INSIST ON USING CHROME:

The Chrome problem is not specific to this game, but affects

all games. It's just this game requires a degree of accuracy so high that the

tiny lag caused by Chrome's inbuilt Flash Player is enough to

throw the timing off. YOU CAN MAKE IT WORK IN CHROME by going to chrome://plugins and disabling all plugins with

'PepperFlash' in the location. This will make it use the normal Flash player like the other browsers, if you have it
installed.

(apparently Chrome is shutting down Flash at the end of the year anyways, that's why we've remade the full game in Unity now, but for browser demos Unity is terrible, oh golly what will we do)

IF YOU ARE USING LINUX:

If you get significant delays in hearing sounds, check this thread for a solution. Thanks to @EspyoPT for the tip!

IF YOU STILL THINK THE TIMING IS OFF: You are

probably used to hitting earlier in all rhythm games. In this game, you must

get over the automatic compensation that you usually do. One easy way

to do this is to hit the spacebar with force, as if you are hitting a drum,

and making sure that sound coincides exactly with the clap

from the game. Try hitting

a surface near your spacebar for the first six beats,

listening to the sound of your hits,

and then SLAMMING your hand onto your spacebar on the seventh! This

advice seemed to work with almost everybody when

we had a booth at GDC. Sorry about

your spacebar:3

And if after all that you still think it is off, tweet me! This is really important to us!

have a chance to leave an open beta
but I loved the game that I played the demo
(+1)

Hey, would I be able to access the previous stages sent in the monthly newsletters (Particularly Super Oriental Insomniac)? I only found this about 2 weeks ago, but loved the concept. Can't wait for it to be released!

(+1)

When the game get  ready to download, will it be paid?

Ps: I love you guys ;D

(1 edit) (+1)

Look this bug : , too have others bugs

(1 edit) (+1)

Hello, Can I create a game inspired in your game? But, this game will have the youtubers/streamers Felps, Cellbit, alanzoka, Guaxinim, among others.

(+1)

haha, sure you can make a game inspired by rhythm doctor. we are inspired by other games too

In the first bonus phase, when you quit or restart before the image ends the error song and it starts from start to finish as if nothing had happened.
Remember: The first stage bonus was ONLY the song
.

Ah! I forgot to mention that this happens when you lose and do things before the patient disappears.

thank you for the bug report!

(+1)

Hey fizzd, Has the game been delayed on it's release cause I heard that the game was supposed to release in the first quarter of 2018? Not trying to rush, i mean it should take as long as it needs to take. Thx for reading if you do.  

(+1)

Hey, yeah we hoped to release early last time but it's taken longer than we thought, sorry. We are working on it every day!

No problem, The game should take all the time that it needs to so don't stress that out and keep up the great work!

(+2)

wow

(+1)

Hey fizzd, could you make the chords of intimate music available? It's because I really wanted to play it on the guitar. Excuse me if I took your time, and thanks for reading :).
(+1)

ok thanks for the comprehension

Hey fizzd! when you have time will you create a android/ios version?

hey gamerDTN! Haha yeah but its not a priority right now, focusing on steam and switch first

(+1)

Hey fizzd!

I Called the ChocolateJake in discord and i asked "the youtuber Felps played another version. i can install it?" he say no, "this is the demo for conventions and streamers".

I Can install this demo for my channel?

Thx for reading

SlayerSz

hey SlayerSz, thanks for your message. We're not distributing the demo to anyone yet, even most streamers. It was just a special case for felps sorry! ChocolateJake is not part of our development team.

(+1)

thanks fizzd!

(+1)

np, thanks for understanding!

this game is incredible, I also saw in the Felps and I very much hope the final version!!!

(1 edit) (+1)

(2 edits) (+1)

ok, thanks

(1 edit) (+1)

Wow! I really liked this game Fizzd! Congrats,but i want to know,i know a youtuber called Felps,and he played a version of this game on his channel and i really liked it! I tried finding it but i didn't find it,can you please say wich version is that and how i can play it? (Sorry if i typed something wrong,im brazilian and i don't know too much of English)

hi tyor thank you!! yeah we gave felps something just for him, its not ready for public yet unfortunately. You can sign up for us to email you when you can play the full version though: http://eepurl.com/dhsFA9

thanks! and your english is great!

(2 edits)

Without words that incredible game, the idea that you had to make this game was very good. I played only the beta of the game and it became my favorite game. I'm looking forward to the full game ...


Congratulations on your work and the whole team of the game.

thank you nicolas, glad you like it! check back here in a few months for the full game!

Deleted post

Good Job Fizzd! This is one of my favorite games.

But I have to know ... Felps played a 'latest version' on his channel ... And I did not find the version he had.

Can you help me with that?

Video:  ( Starts at 6:08 )

(+1)

Im also kinda messed up with that too, i saw him playing and i didnt even watched all the video i came here, because man, this immersion and precise rhythm game that plays with your mind its somenthing i never seen before and i ALREDY LOVE IT. 

But i dont find this newer version anywhere, i just get myself here on this flash version... without these cool irregular beats , "get" "set" that plays with your desktop. It may be not even the full game, but, dude, its more than enough to give me a smile on my face when i play this game, i just LOVE rhythm games. Crypt of the necrodancer, Guitar hero, Step Mania or any game with Beat interaction feels so good to play and this game is no exception, its actually a GOLD one in the middle of everything! The way you interact with the beats and the distractions, irregular beats  and all that stuff its totally new, fresh and just so damn CREATIVE! Im having fun with the flash version but i just cant stop C R A V I N G for that version Felps got. Please dont tell me its that "famous youtuber privelegies" over other players ;-; !!!  

(+1)

Another person also has a version similar to this, so this could be a closed beta for those who supported it on steam perhaps? Idk.

thank you so much! really appreciate your message!! we love all those rhythm games too haha, you should try this one too if you haven't played it btw:

www.zuzunza.com/myflash/game_detail.html?game_id=562091

as for the newer levels, not ready yet sorry, but we'll let our mailing list know as soon as its ready and maybe have some exclusive things to play on there soon: http://eepurl.com/dhsFA9

thanks!

Hey Dalcin thank you! I'm glad you like it. Felps version isn't ready for public yet, we just gave it for him to show since he asked us for a newer demo. But if you sign up on our mailing list, you'll get to know when the full game is out and those levels are ready! (maybe there'll be something private too for mailing list people..): http://eepurl.com/dhsFA9

Okie, but Thanks anyways. =)

Hey fizzd, I love the game and the idea is brilliant, you're a genius... I felt in love with "Intimate" and tried to find a Guitar cover for it... The only one that I found is kinda miswritten... If you had or could send me one I'd be so grateful man... Keep up

hey Rafyy, sure, I wrote this one a while back, hope it helps, and thank you for the compliment! https://pastebin.com/4zKCHMr3

Thank you so much man, keep up the great work

np!

HOW CAN I DOWNLOAD THE "complete" VERSION fizzzd ????

http://eepurl.com/dhsFA9

2000% one of my favourite games ever and it's not even out yet! Found the game by accident about a week ago and I've played it more than half my games. Keep up the great work and am excited to get the full game when it comes out.

Keep your rhythm going!

Thank you so much Asaous!! Made my day :D

No problem you deserve it. Just found the little headache thing, nice touch.

haha nice job finding that easter egg

Any others in the demo for me to find or will I have to keep my grubby paws clean of them until full release?

a secret level needs you to S rank the hardest level in the demo, but other than that nope. all the eggs are going into the full version basket for now sorry 

(+1)

Man, I seriously loved this little demo. You guys did a fantastic job.  Really really looking forward to the full game in the near(?) future!

Hello!

can you send me the text that appears at the end of act 3? (one shift more)
I'm putting on a Brazilian music site, the lyrics to other people addicted to this song read !, but if you do not allow it, I will not continue the project ..

(1 edit)

Hello, ohh i'm so sorry for the late reply, I somehow missed this comment. Yes of course I allow it, it's an honour to see my lyrics translated to another language. I uploaded the lyrics file for you here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1KFbFE5C4jeVGerxrGOGUGEoYcbiugaMW/view?usp=shari...

Thank you for translating it!

Hi! Thank for send the lyrics for me!, i've been finished the translation for portuguese, but i'm waiting for the lyrics is accepted by the site, but in the future, i can make a community of this game in the brazilian country?

Hey, thank you for doing it, really appreciate it!

We have a Brazilian community on www.discord.gg/rhythmdr already actually! you can join that, but you can make your own if you want too. Thank you ^^

https://docs.google.com/document/d/1qNDiodoay33NItJ-MX8hQ6hOaFRavTm9SJbEjLOzGBU/...        this is the translation of the music in a google document, I am sending in case you put in discord or somewhere else. Thanks for the game, its beautiful and CRAZY!, I'm looking forward to the full version.

(+1)

(+2)

(+1)

Best rhythm game ever.

(+1)

ah that is high praise, thanks!

How come on the page it said that levels like delay pedal and one shift more were sent. Can i play those or no cause i heard the songs and it would be awesome to play one shift after beating the demo like "7" times. Btw keep up the great work i love this game!

(+1)

So good .-.

mobile version would be great

(+2)

agreed, we're aiming to work on it after the desktop & Switch version! It will take some time because we will need to cut down some of the effects for it to run smoothly on mobile.

(+2)

How do I download the version that Felps played in your video? (the first 15 minutes)

(+1)

when i get my onw money i will suport you

someone help me, when I finish the tutorial the next level says:  '' Patience: Approaching '' and it never ends, please, is there something that i'm doing wrong?

we've had this problem before, here's the solution if you're playing the offline version: you need to extract the ZIP file first! If it's the online version then please let me know. thanks :)

(+1)

yeah man it worked, acctually i just needed to extract the files.. haha thanks a lot 

(+1)

annd hey, when are u guys going to release the full version?
