Well, after putting this project on hold a few months ago, I decided to rush and finish it.

Due the using a picture, the code is included with the image in a .zip.
Download: see post 14 by AfterLemon who greatly improved it, thanks!

History: A few months ago I got really bored and decided to make an AHK game. This idea was frogger. Over the last 2-3 months it has been sitting and collecting dust due to some complications. But I decided to make a crappier version of what I intended and now maybe you clever AHK people can help me or better yet fix it. Note: this is not an "ask for help" topic.

... 5 years later (Feb 2014) a fellow named AferLemon wanted to improve it, and he did!

Bugs:
Pressing left while behind a vehicle alows you to "mildly" overlap the vehicle.
the game slows down a little when you move.
others...

Controls: ARROWS, ESC, PAUSE.

I find this frogger attempt boring and VERY easy. the area where I had trouble was making a system where you could have more then 1 object on a row. So instead of having 3 rows of 1 log/car, having 3 rows of 2, 3, 4+ logs/cars. getting this to work would make it much more frogger-like. also the real frogger has 4 rows. I was just lazy.

Damn this is so awesome, hopefully we can get some people to polish it up aye. Good work though!

Another bug:
When your on the log the log doesn't move you automatically on it. You gotta move left as the logs move...

that's no bug :p
some frogger games haves "move you automatically when on a log", some don't. But should be easy to add if needed. Will try later.

Neat idea! Everybody knows Frogger!

You might find the WebDings font useful for the objects in the game (text controls instead of progress). I've used it in most of my own games; I believe it comes standard with most or all Windows versions. Anyway, it has several vehicles you could use, including a fire truck, police car, ambulance, and bus. There are also a couple boats. Unfortunately there is no frog, but there is a spider and something that looks like a fly (in some frogger games you get bonus points for eating spiders and flys).

Thanks for posting this. 8)

jaco0646:
Thanks. maybe the webdings would be better when/if someone can implement support for multiple objects per row (though I do have an idea, will try it someday). otherwise the vehicles would be to narrow and would make it even easier. Plus there are only 2 sideview vehicles in webdings (bike/ambulance), a frontview car wouldn't look that good.
good idea though :).

as I loosely stated in my post, I don't have much interest in updating this myself, that's why its been sitting and collecting dust for a couple of months. however, I will probably attempt to update it once-in-a-while. but I will post any modifications in my 1st post.

I absolutely love this. I SOOOOO want to see more games written in AHK. I asked once before if anyone wanted to write a Mancala game, but nothing ever came from it (and I don't do well with game logic, so I'm out). Further, I'm still dieing to see more work done on Bentschi's efforts with the AHK-based OpenGL 3D Game Engine (Warning: German Post; Try Babelfish if you don't speak/read German).

Thanks SoggyDog.
that OpenGL game engine looks awesome! either that's a good brick texture, or I see bump/normal mapping, <3<3.

mancala...good ol' game. Though I'd have no idea where to start. But would be quite interesting.

i like it. one problem is the logs separate and make it impossible to cross the water. Also if you are interested with game scripting i would recommend Game Maker7.


Kool game tho.

@ SpiderGames:
I used GM6/7 for 3 years. its quite good, but the community sucks (I made a tutorial pack (60+) and the mods wouldn't let me post it anywhere....) and is "meh" to me now. I even made a frogger game.

the logs separate, yes, just like in the real game. Different speeds. Thats why I want to (or have someone else) implement a way to have more then 1 log per row (instead, 3 or 4) to make it not so..boring.
its still not impossible, it just requires good timing.

@Tseik
Thanks :O
take your time ^^ I sure did.

@Guest
xD thanks for the glittery text.

Followup to this Frogger business. Spent about 4 hours making it as good as I could with the maths. Addition of rows/cars should be easy, but time-consuming (somewhat).

 

Anyways, here ya go:

 

Spoiler
 
There are difficulties and speed (see file for info).
