Art can wait. Besides, the near-perfect technicals that he's churning out with almost frightening regularity are beautifukl in their own way. Wink

Remember, if you don't like the look, just recite the gamer's mantra:

Graphics are not important, gameplay is everything.

Yes, he does have a very good engine here, but, even in the concept stage of programming, providing a way to import various resources such as models and textures or sprites is included, if only as a blank method.  Don't let me stop your momentum tho.  Just thought it might save you some headaches later.

As a matter of fact, I am studying some rudimentary 3d game programming in c# right now.  It looks to me like the most common modeling format, is a directX mesh.  I just happen to have a modeler that will export this format.

I can supply some 1st run models for experimentation if you want.

You mean the .X format? I'm using it (temporarily) myself for a game I'm coding, but it's a bloated, slow format. For example, I made a simple model consisting of 5 2d-planes. The size of the X-file? 2 MB.

I just exported my model of the Thraddash ship ( to .X) in my personal image to the left.  It consists of 12-12 sided spheres (You cant see them all in the image, they're nested inside each other.  In the model, they are semi-transparent and luminous.) and 73 polygons.  Total size 703KB and this before it's converted to binary.

I admit, it's a pretty simple model and it has no textures to import, but it is definately Thraddash.

I just put in all the sounds for all the ships that are currently in the game.
 The only sound I cold not switch to .ogg is the orzes Go sound when they launch a marine. Anyone want to convert this sound to .ogg and send it to me? The reason why Im switching them from .wav to .ogg is SDL.net had problems with the .wavs.

Other then the orz all the ships now have sound, unless I missed a few collision sounds.


I agree that I should start thinking about the 3D models or atleast make stubs for them.

Well my plans to start investigating how to do 3D graphics with OpenGL has been cut short by a moron.
nehe.gamedev.net has been hacked.

allrighty Grin
any specific folder?

anywhere is fine

I was hoping it would be
"../files/secondary.ogg"
Since I was saying I was unable to convert it from .wav to .ogg.

Done, same folder, "secondary.ogg". Sounded awful when I first converted it for some reason, so I jammed it through a filter, amplified and bass-boosted it. If it sounds funny and you just want a direct conversion, I put "secondayNORM.ogg" up also.

Thanks. I'll be making a new release with all these sounds.

Now the entire Gamedev.net domain is down. This really slows down game development.

Im so HAPPY!  Cheesy Grin Grin Cheesy Cheesy Grin Grin  Cool

What I am about to reveal to you may seem like a minor bug fix but its more like a new feature and them some (and them some more).

Remember a while ago I was trying to figure out an anti tunneling algorithm?

So Ive been trying to solve this problem from the beginning.

 Well I just figured one out finally and implemented it and it works!
I thank God for the brain he gave me so I could figure this out and for answering my prayers. (More then just code goes into this game its also powered by prayer!) Grin

See what was happening was if an object was moving too fast (druuge cannon) it would tend to fly right through another object with no collision being detected. As you can see this would be a major problem. This algorithm solves that! Making it so most high speed collision should be detected.

Neato. Care to give a simple explanation as to how your anti-tunelling algorithm works?
