I like the screenshot of your game! Will there be a demo out sometime?

In a few years, at this rate of work :P. Thanks though.
The artist wants us to to enter Dream.Build.Play and commit to it full-time (or as full-time as our jobs will allow). It's unlikely we'll finish in time, but if we make some real progress in the attempt then it'll be worth it.

Haven't had the time or motivation (at the same time) to work on it for ages though.

Took my little Pong game and used the same code to create a breakout style game, just for laughs...

I made mine using a 3D engine. I made the level editor with Allegro though.

Blenders are cool 8-)

I'm just experimenting right now; hopefully I'll have a real lighting system to look at later.

If it doesn't resolve the issue, we'll evaluate whether the latest round of anti-speculative-execution patches we've had to apply could somehow be responsible. (The performance impact of this fix is estimated to be just a couple of percent, but a banana on a football field isn't even that much and yet woe unto the quarterback who steps on it.)

yeh, it's drawn with perspective taken into account so it looks 3D. Took ages to do.

EDIT : I think Trent's looks best.

Thanks William. I thought that house was rendered in 3d and then drawn as a sprite or tiles.

NiteHackr
Member #2,229

Yeah, I love that house William, nice work. It really comes out at you. Now if you could render a few trees to look the same... it would be a kick ass scene.

I'm playing around with a little OpenGL today (Dev-C++ with MinGW 3.4.2) (straight Windows code, no Allegro, no SDL). I may try and port it to Allegro 5 using MSVC. Should be fairly straight forward as it is all OpenGL. I have a working map editor for this as well. It's a 2D editor, you place the buildings and roads... nothing too complicated yet, but it works. I need to learn more about collision detection in 3D, I cheat in this and use 2D collision detection. ;)

Nice! I'd like to do a 3d game someday.

Is this better Tobias?

I thought about some of the sage advice in these forums and decided to give another crack at CodeBlocks + MinGW 4.5.2. I managed to get several projects working with a lot of fiddling around.

I loaded up another OpenGL 3D project I worked on in the past, the 3D project I listed in a previous post in here was pure OpenGL and windows code. This was one I had done before that using Glut. It's some terrain rendering from a greyscale heightmap I created using Terragen, I also created the skybox with Terragen and the terrain grassyness etc... you get the picture. I basically have added to this project every time I learn more about OpenGL. The last time I added to it was to add in real time shadows, although there is none for the basic trees I have yet. You can fly around this, walk, and swim in the water with sound effects, background ambience. No speed optimizations though, still learning that. Any collision detection is simple checking the heightmap and adjusting your height based on that, no REAL collision.

I took some ideas from Battlefield 1942 game at the time, they extended the terrain you were on and copied it so if you flew off the map, you would simply fly over a copy of the map again, this way things seemed to go on forever (until you died for going too far). Well in my project here I copy the map in all directions (8) so it appears as though you can travel on forever when in fact you're walking to the edge of the map (which blends seamlessly with the other edge) and it moves you to the opposite edge of the map. Because there is a copy of the terrain, you don't notice and it appears like you go on forever, only with repeating terrain. ;) Kinda kewl. I want to do more work on this and see where I can go with it.

I also took the idea on how Battlefield 1942 done things and coloured the lower half of the skybox and the bottom the same as the fog so it blends nicely.

The water is also animated when you play this. A simple animated series of textures.

[EDIT] Just to note, this was all built with Dev-C++ and the latest MinGW, I ditched CodeSucks, too many problems with it.

I've been working on a game-thing for a bit now. The few features I've implemented include vector graphics support (using a Lua-based file format), skeletal animations (again using Lua as the base file format), and a very generic event system.

Here's the skeletal animation editor:

{"name":"603820","src":"\/\/djungxnpq2nug.cloudfront.net\/image\/cache\/2\/e\/2e74db50bd58cf09398954f812930f59.png","w":830,"h":604,"tn":"\/\/djungxnpq2nug.cloudfront.net\/image\/cache\/2\/e\/2e74db50bd58cf09398954f812930f59"}603820

And the aforementioned skeleton in the game:

{"name":"603821","src":"\/\/djungxnpq2nug.cloudfront.net\/image\/cache\/3\/2\/32a4ab7d4d469104f553e622e36d695b.png","w":966,"h":568,"tn":"\/\/djungxnpq2nug.cloudfront.net\/image\/cache\/3\/2\/32a4ab7d4d469104f553e622e36d695b"}603821

The file format for vector path data and skeletal animations is just using Lua tables, really. Works nice and allows me to import the data directly into Lua (which is the core scripting language if it's not obvious :P) with no fuss at all!

Too bad it's not a game yet. :'(

So I have been working on a few games here and there. More of proof of concept. Such as the CATAN-LIKE game I've been working on. I can spawn the game board, and keep stopping do to the multiple versions of allegro that keep coming out (-->4.2 ->4.9 ->5.0-> 5.0.1)

{"name":"603839","src":"\/\/djungxnpq2nug.cloudfront.net\/image\/cache\/7\/c\/7cfb0cfc0054b250f85cf3589b020efe.png","w":1200,"h":720,"tn":"\/\/djungxnpq2nug.cloudfront.net\/image\/cache\/7\/c\/7cfb0cfc0054b250f85cf3589b020efe"}603839
{"name":"603838","src":"\/\/djungxnpq2nug.cloudfront.net\/image\/cache\/4\/7\/47035ddbb633f8fb4d6f7125e6511b10.png","w":808,"h":533,"tn":"\/\/djungxnpq2nug.cloudfront.net\/image\/cache\/4\/7\/47035ddbb633f8fb4d6f7125e6511b10"}603838

However, the one game that I've been working on game design/research/etc is IC:
{"name":"603840","src":"\/\/djungxnpq2nug.cloudfront.net\/image\/cache\/9\/f\/9f722e3771daade9d6385a39f2cde835.png","w":1280,"h":720,"tn":"\/\/djungxnpq2nug.cloudfront.net\/image\/cache\/9\/f\/9f722e3771daade9d6385a39f2cde835"}603840
Think Metro-vannia shooter meets Robot Western :). I want the whole game designed from the art/music/story/features etc .... before I even touch the engine.

Not so much a project. Just basically playing around with different graphic styles using Tile Studio.

I created a tile set that looks like the one used for 2D in the game Space Rogue.

In this zip is the game compiled up with a text file with instructions and ramblings as well as the source code and Code::Blocks project if you're interested.

Much as it pains me to admit it, that source code is what finally helped me figure out how to do OOP in C++, despite knowing how to do it in Java for over a year now. Because I'm terrible at learning from tutorials and my lazy searches hadn't turned up any simple examples.

I'm loving the 3D projects I'm seeing here. I toyed with 3D for a bit, but I could never figure out how to use a 3D modeler, or how to use the models in my programs. Probably for the same reasons as why I've just now figured out how to do OOP in C++.

I'm kind of waiting for allegro to have a native 3D API before I dig into 3D.
