Author's Description: Electron will become a multiplayer network overhead run & shoot or run & tag game.
It consists of a server and a client program. Right now up to 16 clients can contact the server and walk through oursmallish test dungeon. You can start a tag game or a twoteam game, for both games to be any fun it isadvisable to have at least 2 players, 3 is even better for tag games. The help function is a bit scarce at the moment, but it does work.
Since it is in the very early stages of development it does not even have a version number yet (except for the release date which is encoded in the archive filename).
Lots of new stuff since last version, it starts to become actually playable!! Graphics have been updated, network traffic has been made more secure (quite stable now). Sorry for the long pause between updates, we've both been very busy.
09-04-2001 : lots of new stuff since
last update. (we lost the password :) amongst others, new features include doors, repair vehicles, a new (readable and documented) map format, a map editor, a rudimentary sound engine. A start has been made to create actual games (2-team war and tag-game).
13-05-2000 : new version uploaded.
added animated sprites to the client, fixed some problems in the server. Lots of other things.
31-05-2000 : the game is almost playable. We now have a working motorcycle, a tank that drives, turns and shoots, and vehicle keys you can pickup to use the vehicles. The game works over a modemlink now. A command interpreter has been added, it supports aliases for complicated commands.
Fermion is the Allegro.cc account we (Hein Zelle & Martijn Versteegh, see our own accounts for personal info) have created for our project 'Electron'. Since we plan on having more people join for the graphics, we set up this account here. (View Profile)
