Title: Rainbow Dash: The Game
Post by: Juju on February 06, 2012, 06:51:49 pm
I had to follow some tutorial at school and I deviated from it. It's in 3D and you're supposed to control a spaceship and shoot asteroids with bullets, but I replaced the spaceship and asteroids with Rainbow Dash from My Little Pony. Proudly made in XNA. (So no Mac or Linux version, sorry :() Maybe more features coming soon, as I discover and test more XNA features.

Super Awesome Readme You Should Read:

Prerequisites:
Microsoft .NET Framework 4 (http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=24872)
Microsoft XNA Framework 4 Client Profile (http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=20914)

Controls ([Keyboard]/<Xbox 360 controller>):
[Z]/<RT>: Go forward
[X]/<LT>: Go backwards
[Arrow Keys]/<Left Thumb>: Rotate
[Left Shift/Control]/<LS/RS>: Do a (shitty) barrel roll
[Space]/<A>: Uhhh, fart bullets?
[R]/<Back>: Reset position to the center
[Esc]/<Start>: Quit

Have fun :P
Goddamn what the hell I've made o.o

Rainbow Dash: The Game has stopped working

Windows can check online for a solution to the problem.

Followed steps above. Didn't work.

Hm, I dunno. It's the first time I publish such .exe onto the Internets, I should check on another computer.

Maybe XNA has extreme dependencies from computers to another and your game only works on one single video card or something? I run Windows 7 64 bit btw

If you ship the two main XNA dlls it'll probably work without having XNA 4 as a prerequisite. Used to work with XNA 1 through 3 anyway, I stopped using it and all of DirectX after that and switched to OpenGL so I'm not sure about 4.
Btw, .NET 4 Full or Client Profile?

Client Profile I think. (I have no idea of what's the difference.)

Ok it works now but I am confused how to shoot stuff, because I can't seem to hit anything ???

Also you should change the controls so rotating left actually rotates left, not right, and so on, because inverted controls makes it much harder to play D:

You can't hit anything, actually. And you actually rotate left when you face the empty cornflower blue void from the opposite of the camera. When you face the camera, it seems inverted.

Ah I see. Maybe you could add an option to invert controls? In some first person shooters the same thing happens, but some people prefer inverted controls.
