Squared Shooter

I am goint to make this as a first post of the game because this is going on the tabs on the left.

So I finaly finished the current project. I made it for the experimentalgameplay where the theme was "bare minimum". So I decided to use only rectangles for graphics. Total work time on the project is 20 hours. Somewhere 12 hours are normal stuff and 8 hours are searching the web for many mathematical formulas. Yea this project was hard. I had to do many advanced math for collision detection and all. But I made it.

Here is the screenie:

Download link.

As I said here is the timelapse video made with chronolapse.

Go to youtube to see HQ. I think then you can even read the code.

All together it was a good project. But the only problem is ( as I just checked experimentalgameplay ) and the made a post of all the games. Mine isn't included. That is because I could'n post a comment in the topic. Darn it. Oh well.

Game done

Hello there. Long time no post from me. Well I have been working on the game and finished it :D In the 7 day deadline :D Wel the days werent consecutive but still. This project got me many problems ( headacke ) because of lot of math stuff ( i was searchin for functions on net and books for 2 days ) but now it is done.

I will make a longer post later, or tomorrow. Now here is a link. I also used the desktop capturing softwere that Petri used ( Chronological ) and made a video of the whole development time. Webcam included ( now you will actually see my face LOL ). I will post that later with the postmoterm.

As you can see the gfx is bare minimum. I alredy posted it on experimentalgameplay but I don't see my comment. I tryed again but it said I alredy posted that. Maybe it needs some time to update.

Try it and give feedback :D

Welcome back

Hello there. Well is has pased 1 week since the last post. Now it is time to write something. It was verry nice on vecations. I was just laying on the beach all day and relaxing. I completly turned of my brain for 4 days. I sadly don't have any intersting pictures ( i will check again tomorrow ), because we only have like 15 pictures totaly ( on a new digital camera that holds 600 pictures :P ). Well yea.

So the bad news is I didn't do anything on the project. Yea I know I said I will but I just didn't get to it. My brother was constantly bothering me every hour that he wants to play and it is realy hard to work on something 45 minutes then wait 1 hour and then continiue. You lose the will to do it. :S. But that is all about to change, because I ordered a new computer :D. And my brother will get my computer in his room. That means that I will have all the time on my own computer to work on it. A dream came true :D Noooo mooorrrreee bothering. You would have to be me to understand how hard is it to share a computer with a brother and you have to switch every hour. I will but the computer on friday. I will probably get it ready to work on it till the night. Also everything will be set for my brother so on Saturday everyone will have its own. If you want to know the specs: Intel® Core™2 Quad Q8400 2,66Ghz ( OMG ), 4 gb ram, 640 Gb HDD, and GeForce GTS 250 1GB. I won't go to specific into the motherboard and all but as you can see it is a nice machine. It looks like this ( on the site ):

Some quick update on the project. I will start working on the project on saturday. If I will get some hours together to work on it tomorrow then I will. I will try to complete it in 3 - 4 days. I hoped to make a another game till the end of august and maybe I will make it. I hope the games will be good for the experimental gameplay project.

Bye all and good night.

Another delay ( numereo 3 ) big delay :S

Yea a big delay again.

But first the report. We had a LAN party till friday. Friday was a weird day and I didn't work on the game at all. On sunday we had family visitors from other country the whole day... sooo. There was other work today. A lot has to be done before we go to vecations ( on the see ). Yea that's right. On thursday morning we go on vecations to Croatia. And we come home late Sunday night. For the next 2 days. Well I just don't know if I should work on it. When I come home on sunday I will continiue work on monday. I am realy lazy :D. I wish I had some realy good phone so I could make pictures on the sea and write blog posts :D It would make it more interesting. 

Bye for now.

Quick update

Hello there. First some update on the project skedual. I started on the project on Sunday night. I was on a picnic so there wasn't much time. I mainly did the bacis framework and some player stuff that day. I had tuts and help opened the whole time, because is takes some time to get used to openGL state tipe of work. There is also many stuf you have to know. But I will get used to it. 

I didn't do anything yesterday because I was on pool with friends from 7 AM to 9 PM. :D

Today was also a rather busy day. I slept a lot. I worked few hours on it throught the day. The big problem is that I have to share the computer with my brother. We switch every 1 hour and it is realy hard to work on something. I rather like it that I take some hours for the project and not to work on it for 45 minutes then go and do something else and then get back to work. It just doesn't work. I also wasn't home most of the day. The player movement is done and the rotation. I had some problems with angles because it's the first time I am working with angles and direction. But I managet to get a smooth movent. It is a acceleration time of movement so it takes some time to speed up and slow down. A picture of it:

Simple graphics huh. It will be only quads but I think it will have a nice look at the end. Experimental projects augusts there is "Bare minimum". Maybe the bare minimum of graphics in this game will be enough so I will maybe post it there. :D who knows.

I will try to get the game done till sunday ( in the 7 day deadline ). I WILL.
