I know sheís not much to look at but the logic is there and fully functional.

I mostly continued with the re-factoring of the code. So that is why it didnít do something more complex.

meep-eep your arguments have swayed me. Iíll leave the events in. I will have to somehow enforce strict discipline when it comes to what registers with the events though.

Now I need to go to bed so I can get some homework done in the morning.

Lateral movement is working & everything? I must say, you never cease to amaze; it's one thing to take weeks or months to get it perfect, and quite another to get complex behaviors like these done in less than a day.

Thanks. I always appreciate words of encouragement.


Sorry no ship of the day today. I instead continued with the re-factoring and recoding of certain things. Today I pulled all the logic out of the weapons and put it in a class called WeaponsLogic. Then I replaced the InstantExplosion class with that one that implementedÖ Well I did a LOT. What I was going into detail about was that now because of theses changes a lot of redundant code was moved into a generic class and gives the ability to change something in one place and have it affect everything that uses it. The end result is I can now accurately do the Myconís primary weapon. I believe that was the last major hurdle to the design, before I believe I can do everything for super melee minus the hyperspace effects and the pkunks hallelujah effect (just the effect not the re-spawning).

Also Iíve started messing around with SDL. And Iím thinking the first thing ill do with SDL is transferring all the controls over to it. Then Iím thinking about trying to add some sound.

I forgot to mention last night that I managed to make it so the ship selection screen is delayed by a little bit, so you can watch the ships blow up.

Wow. That's a lot of progress. You're making my anticipation for the finished product come even closer to my anticipation of the release of TESIV: Oblivion and my acquiration of a PC to run the game with all of the bells and whistles at a silky-smooth framerate, as well as the hope that I get Xbox Live in the near future.

Okay, so there was quite a bit of OT stuff in there-needless to say, the point is that the final product is bound to blow us all away(as well as give a good starting base for my Repulsor game I detailed a few pages back).

Oh, and when't the next release? I wish that you'd get that SVN server of yours up and running again, this time with a link for UQRM...

Ship of the Day: Mycon Podship.
« Reply #139 on: January 29, 2006, 08:20:22 am »

I didn't do anything yesterday concerning this project because the Auto Assault Beta event started yesterday. And I played it during all of my free time.

I did the Mycond Podship for ya guys. The only thing about it that you could consider non functional is when the main weapon takes damage it does not expand to the size appropriate for what damage is left in it.

Ask and you shall receive. The SVN server is not mine, but it is up. (only with the Physics Engine).

I've dedicate this release to my brother James, who would have been 25 today; if it wasnít for a climbing accident. James would have loved the fact that Iím remaking this game.

I'm happy just reading about your project for now, but I'm definitely going to download this when it's more complete. I'm awed by the speed at which you're progressing, and will be very very impressed if you manage to keep it up.

Feat of the Day: SDL.Net.
« Reply #144 on: January 31, 2006, 09:38:19 am »

I decided it was about time for me to switch over to SDL.Net. So I did.

What this means is that DirectX is no longer required to compile and run my game. In even simpler terms it means it can possibly run on Linux. The thing that really threw me off about OpenGL is that coordinate system is totally different then DirectX. Other then that it was a really simple switch. The status boxes arenít working yet but thatís the only thing. Right now Iím thinking on how to rewrite the timer for my physics engine so that itís a lot more consistent. Iíll try running it on a Linux system tomorrow, to see if it will work. I will be testing it on either a Red Hat or a Fedora core system. My Other Brother has Macintosh laptop with MacOS X so I can test it on that too (If he lets me).

I'm happy just reading about your project for now, but I'm definitely going to download this when it's more complete. I'm awed by the speed at which you're progressing, and will be very very impressed if you manage to keep it up.
Unfortunately I didnít take any blow off classes this semester so I will have to be spending more and more time doing homework and studying. But I will still try.

I hear the next version of Fedora will have built in
mono support. This should help those of us
running Linux to enjoy your project.
I've never coded .NET before, but I
might learn just so I can help with
this wonderful project.

Now, just a quick question about your graphics. Right now it looks like you have flat polygon shapes to define your clipping plane. Are you going to lay a higher resolution 3d model or are you just planning on using a flat 2-d bitmapping to your clipping plane?
Or, and this would be even cooler, are you planning on using some sort of normal mapped flat graphic. That way it would look (mostly) like a really high res graphic with responce to dynamic lights and all, but at a fraction of the cost. The only places that would get sloppy is at the edge of your screen where the perspective wouldn't respond exactly correct, but other than that it'd be cool

Whoa, normal mapping is a tall order for a game where most of the screen is black. Space games have traditionally been able to push more polygons because of the very nature of the scenery, so coding a normal mapper would be more work than it's worth.

Indeed. I think BioSlayer is using these 2d polygons as placeholders and boundary/collision boxes. The hope is to get some good 3d models eventually.

Feat of the Day: Linux!
« Reply #149 on: February 01, 2006, 08:06:25 am »

Yep I managed to get it to run on Linux. Do you know what caused the most problems other then the unofficial nature of windows forms in mono? The fact that there is no easy to use installer for SDL.Net on Linux.  I had to comment out a lot of automatically generated code that seems to do nothing. I works for the most part except for a few glaring problems with winforms, but the computer I tested it on has issues.


I also rewrote the timer and it seams to be working a lot better, then the old version.

Halleck is right about the polygons as placeholders.
