« on: November 15, 2012, 03:31:14 am »
you know that I participate to the 2012 apocalypse contest, so here my thread.

I think this will be a isometric/RPG game
you are at 1h30 from the 21 december 2012 0h am.
you are the commander of a spatial ship.
Something strange happen....

features :
-very few animations
-secondary quests
-a final boss
-over 20 rooms to explore
-cool effects
-30-40 min of gamplay (if you are fast)
-dynamic battle systeme
-four grey levels

EDIT : I forgot to precise, this will be an AXE game

EDIT2 : some change in the features

after 2 hour of intense programming I finally manage to get my isometric engine work at decent speed (not for greyscale thought)

Wow this looks pretty nice. Is the flickering due to weird emulator settings? Only some parts seems to flicker. Speed seems pretty good, but to keep it intact, avoid implementing tile transparency (try to make your map design so the character rarely ever go behind a wall/block and when he needs to he disappears entirely), because squidgetx tried it and it was very slow.

You should make the background black by the way. I wonder how it will look like.

I would love to see this come out, because there were not many isometric games in the past for calcs. :)

Good luck!
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

Admittedly my tiledrawing routine was atrocious and didn't check to see if the tile needed to be drawn or not-- I think that was the major issue, not transparency. Oh, and also I used 16x16, which was itself a slowdown factor...I should really pick that project up again.

Nice work so far, themachine!

Ah ok. I thought it was transparency, since that requires like a lot more calculations or in some case map layers.

The map would probably look a lot better if you would use sprites for simple textures and/or only show the lines at the edges of the planes, instaed of for every block. This way it would look much cleaner.

But it's looking good so far.
My projects
 - The Lost Survivors (Unreal Engine) ACTIVE [GameCommandoSquad main project]
 - Oxo, with single-calc multiplayer and AI (axe) RELEASED (screenshot) (topic)
 - An android version of oxo (java)  ACTIVE
 - A 3D collision detection library (axe) RELEASED! (topic)(screenshot)(more recent screenshot)(screenshot of it being used in a tilemapper)
Spoiler For inactive:
- A first person shooter with a polygon-based 3d engine. (z80, will probably be recoded in axe using GLib) ON HOLD (screenshot)
 - A java MORPG. (pc) DEEP COMA(read more)(screenshot)
 - a minecraft game in axe DEAD (source code available)
 - a 3D racing game (axe) ON HOLD (outdated screenshot of asm version)

After, with the texture, we won't see all the line (I don't make the texture, here it's just a test to see if there is no bug)
