I am still aware of my site sucking. During peak hours of the day, it struggles. I know what the problems are and I've been trying to work with multiple database people to fix them for the past month. Some changes have been made, but apparently it's not been enough. If I had tons of experience with mysql, I'd attempt to fix things myself. However, I am currently just a flash guy (and also just one person). I'd like to get this fixed even sooner than those of you threatening my life, as my site's performance is directly tied to my ad revenue.

In any case, I have been working on the game. There was an update on Friday. I'd have mentioned it then... but Friday tends to be the busiest day, and I didn't want my site mushed. You can now add people into the level editor. They are more complicated than regular objects, so 20 people mashed in a pile will bog the game down. Try to use them kind of sparingly, maybe. I'm surprised nobody has made a roller coaster full of passengers yet.

This is a zip file containing a flash file for the non-player characters. There's a readme in there with some basic instructions for creating your own. It would be great if some of you could make some characters I could put in the game... but I'm not getting my hopes up after the results of me asking for voice sound effects. Prove me wrong and email me some good stuff (totaljerkface at gmail). I will most likely be adding myself as a destructible character soon, so if you're upset with site performance you'll be able to maul me in a creative method of your choosing.

I've also doubled the shape limit (300 to 600). It didn't screw things up as badly as I thought it would. You can now see how many shapes you have left as you're building a level.

Hello Jim Bonacci, This game doesn't suck, it just needs a high amount of improvement. I was wondering how you make the characters walk? It would be highly amusing to see the effective shopper walking&the wheelchair guy miraculously recovering, I appreciate your idea for this game. Yours Sincerely, Molly-Joan White. x

My computer seems to be having a problem downloading the file- I can't access the FLA file. I have a windows 7 computer I don't know if that will prevent me opening it in some way.
By pllayer4real on February 25, 2011

By someguywithnoname on February 23, 2011

Jim, I've pretty much recolored irresponsible dad to create a douche bag college student. I am relatively new to flash, so I don't know how to resize, reshape, or any of that mumbo jumbo. I did, however, recolor all of the layers because I'm not a total jackass, and I've made blue jeans. Aside from the shape, I need for him to have a new hairstyle, it should be raggedy and messed up, and I need him to have a smaller jaw size. I can send you the fla file (it still has all the other characters from the template, I didn't know if I should delete them or not), and from there, you can either do it yourself, or if you're a lazy asshole, you can just teach me how to do that. On a final note, I've considered giving him a backwards hat for a helmet, and a skateboard as a vehicle. I'm pretty sure I'd have to create a completely new file for that instead of just coloring over the moped or something. My other options are a farmer who rides in a tractor, a mini bike rider, and, to please the fans, Justin Bieber, who rides on a magical talking phallus. Anyways, respond to me if you'd like to see the file and I might be able to provide voices, as I know some excellent screamers. Good luck with all the ms paint style naked dudes and Justin Biebers in the meantime that I'm sure everybody is already creating.

By mertel on February 23, 2011

tanks for the hard work I have a suggestion do you want to make a button in the level editor that make the last thing that you have done undone sometimes I delete something and must start again that is really annoying thank you =)
By The Epic FAIL on February 23, 2011

Thankyou for that it seems much funnier to kill people and dragging them off the edge of a cliff if people can try and make some new voices for the moped couple like NOOOOOOOOO(man) and AHHHHEHW (woman) if one off the die thanks for reading :D
By Jim Bonacci on February 23, 2011

JesusRamirez44, what OS are you using?
By crazy old jerkface on February 23, 2011

cool i like the new update it is sweet ^^ go so on i cant wait for the next i hope it will be non playeble cars/planes/boats/and so on... good luck jim
By eraniki on February 23, 2011

A good idea would be that the non-playabel charcters could grab. And so we can made better levels with more possibilities to do. Do you undertsand? my english is not soo good but i think you can understand :) ^^
By diddeli duhh on February 23, 2011

hey jim. I'm trying vn make a character with new body type and stuff. I'm completly new with flash, and trying to make the character but not sure how to do it. If you could make a more detailed text like you would make an completly new character from scratch. Awesome site btw.

By jorg13666 on February 23, 2011

awsome dude
By BasZZ on February 23, 2011

Jim... in around september you said that you'd make a new character.. one character.. you did it, that's fine, but there are like twenty places left for other characters and the game is getting pretty boring with just five characters. when you have time, please think about making another new character, or maybe ten ;) congrats on making the non-playable characters, though.
