Can I throw my calculator at a wall yet?
« on: January 30, 2010, 08:29:06 am »
I'm trying to make a game. It involves:

  • A single player.
  • A single wall.
  • Raycasting.  >:(

Question: How do you simulate line of sight on the homescreen?
Bug me about my book.

Without further description of the game, i can't say I know exactly what you need.  Is this going to be FPS like?  Just a single wall?  Maybe texture mapping?

Dungeon crawling. Rogue-like, if you will.

Hmmm how does it apply to raycasting?  Is this http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roguelike an accurate description?  It seems top down to me...

Basically, I'm thinking about making a dungeon crawling game. But, I want to be able to corner-peek around walls and stuff. And, yes, it's going to be a top-down.

Ok then I'm not sure what you want raycasting for?  Could you elaborate a bit?

In that game you can see around corners like I think you describe.  Am I correct?

Sounds like a cool game!

Oooooh i see.  The part where he said one wall had me confused for a bit.  Is this right?

Yeah there are two kinds of raycasting. The one you see in FPSes and the one involving Fog Of War in Blinded by the dark. I have doubts it would be fast enough in BASIC on the graph screen, but it might have decent speed on the home screen. Someone did a home screen raycaster on UTI back in 2004 and it ran at 2 FPS on a SE with no enemy and it was 3D. I assume in 2D it might be a tad faster. I never messed around with raycasting, though.

Also welcome back.
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

Thank you, sir. And, yeah. That's the basic premise of the game.
