A new Demo and Engine to test :)

Recommended Posts

Hy everyone ! Last time i've posted some of my work. (Old Post) It was a scriptable game engine, and I've created a demo with it. What I did was, script a demo to my engine. I've recieved some criticism, but didn't give up. I've worked hard, and added some of the features I was suggested. Here it is, this time with a whole lot of new effects. It is still not complete, and the Demo is probably just as booring as last time, but I still want to hear a LOT of critics, and suggestions, on what I should do next, based on what you see ! === !!!THANX TO DBridle the file is hosted here: Donwload the Demo ======= So, here it is ! (sorry about the long list of files, but my server allows only 255 Kbytes of data per file) http://robi.go.ro/upload/hh2.part01.exe

Looks pretty cool from the shots, very colourful Can''t test the engine, unfortunately (don''t have access to a Windows box right now).

Odd.. when I tried downloading DBridle''s complete file, it didn''t extract correctly. Guess it must''ve gotten corrupted or something. Stupid dial-up.
Anyway. I downloaded it, and it gives me this odd breakpoint "(0x80000003) occurred in the application at location 0x77f7f570". For some reason, I think this is my fault, as it has happened once or twice before with my own program.. But just in case it''s your fault, I''ll post this.

Downloaded the single file and while it was 4meg the only file within the rar is graphics.dat. I didn''t get any CRC errors so I''m not sure what is up with it.

Can''t download the pictures. Authentication required?
I downloaded the single file demo too, but it says all the files are corrupt. I haven''t tried downloading all 16 yet...

Well, I''ll try back another time!

on my machine it doesn't run, too.
Switching to fullscreen, than back to window-rendering, leaving the windows black.

(oh, powered by visual basic, this seems to be the problem )

Hy everyone ! Thanks for all your posts !

Today I've bought a new graphics card, a GeForce4 Mx440, and noticed that the program I have posted does not run on it. So I took a look at the code, and while it detected a 24Bit Stencil Format, it just wouldn't initiate. I've cleaned up the code a little bit, so the download list will be lengthen by 2 more files ! (What I did was, skip the 24 bit detection, and force 32 or 16 wich are a more common format, I think)
Also, i've changed the initialization code, to accep "hardware_vertex_processing" insted of the software one.
So, here they are:
Download, the Hardware processed version
Download, the Software processed version

Just copy them, to the directory, where the original exe is located, and run (no worryes about anithing else)

Sorry for the incovinience...

Now that''s a graphics engine .

Before anyone else does... *cough* SCREENSAVER *cough*

Did you really write it in Visual Basic? It sure runs fast!

Trust me ! It's NOT a screensaver (But it werry well could be)

Anyway, to proove to you it's a game engine and that is written in VB, i've made this small page with screenshot! (click on 'em to enlarge)

Screenshots From the GAME and the DEMO

But now to be serious, isn't there anything you guys HATE about my Demo ? something I'm doing wrong ? Still waiting for critics... remember the last time ? check out the reference to that old post...

Well, as for me, I thought the demo was too repetitive. There were some textures, for example, that were in the directory structure that I don''t recall seeing. Of course, I escaped out before the end. But I had seen the credits re-repeated, and went on to watch a few more moments of more of the same.

But what was there looked pretty cool.

I didn''t mean to use what it is now as a screensaver, but if it''s all done with scripting you could make a very cool screensaver, very quickly . It did get a little repetetive at times...it also took way too long to go into the next transition. Several times I was just about to close it when suddenly something new would happen. I gave up after a while though and closed it.

Dammit, it seems every downloadable item on this post is currently unavailable. By the comments, it seems worthy of a download.

Please post again when it is available again.

Looking at one of the screenshots I was so surprised to see it say "Powered by Visual Basic"... If it is, that''s amazing!!!! I''m very impressed.
