Temple Run [Axe]
« on: August 31, 2012, 09:50:52 pm »
So I mentioned a couple weeks ago in the Ideas/Inspiration I might pick up porting Temple Run as a project...

Originally I thought I would try to use Mode7 or something, but in the end ended up making a near-complete 3d engine to work it :P So if I can keep the speed and figure out how to do textures as well, I might release the 3d engine as a separate useable library. The engine is really quite nice, it's all based off of a Point() routine that takes x,y,z, and a pointer and writes the x' y' values to the 4 bytes pointed to (also within the routine cameraX, cameraY, and vanishing point are controllable).


Well, it's now in a playable-enough state that I decided to make an official thread, along with a download and screenie, of course. It's still wireframe, making things kinda hard to see and some of the collisions may be glitchy, which is why I'm enlisting your help in fine-tuning it.

You are the black square (sprite coming soon!). There are no turns (yet), only holes, walls, and things to duck under. Use 2nd to jump, Alpha to duck. There is still a lot of work to do, but it's pretty cool as is already (at least I think so)

Edit: And I need a clipped line routine :(

Looks Great!

Wow, I wondered if anyone was going to make temple run!

3D looks cool so far!

Here is a line clipping routine for the bottom of the screen. I bet you can optimize it, that's just some ugly prototype I came up with using the similar triangles formula.

Code: [Select]
Lbl LIN
If r4>63
r1-r3→r5?r4-r2*r1//r5-64+r2*r5//(r4-r2)→r3
63→r4
End
Line(r1,r2,r3,r4)
Return

Use it just like the regular line command.

Graphics look really simular to those of my racing game. What does the engine support? Does it support rotation of camera and changes in the FOV (zooming in/out)?
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 - a 3D racing game (axe) ON HOLD (outdated screenshot of asm version)

It doesn't support rotation, since I won't need it for Temple Run. If I ever make a separate general-case library release, I'll probably add rotation. It doesn't currently support zooming in/out either, but that's a really easy addition to make (basically just have to change the fixed focal length value to a variable)

Would it be possible to make it touchpad like the fruit ninja game?

Well, Temple Run does have rotations at 90 degrees. I suppose you could fudge it by doing a really fast animation to another straight segment, but I'm guessing it wouldn't look quite right.

I was hoping for something like this.

Woops, yeah I guess I'll have to figure that out =/

Added a poll in terms of controls. Vote!

Looks nice. Is that game kinda like rollercoaster or is it more like jumping to avoid platforms and stuff? I never played the original D:
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

That's pretty impressive. I would say don't go with DT's keypad-as-touchscreen control scheme, although it was very innovative, it was nigh impossible to control on my 84+.

If you limit it to the F1–F5 keys (since all you're doing is rotating left and right), and allow for multiple keys to be down at the same time (which would have made cheating a lot easier in Fruit Ninja but shouldn't be a problem here), it will be much easier to control. I tested something like it while planning the game, and it was very responsive—I'd say go for it :)

EDIT: You'll have to have a separate system for jumping up and down. Maybe double-tap on ZOOM key or something similar?

It really reminded me of your racing game when I first saw the topic too. :P

Anyho, this is gonna be really cool. Personally, I'd opt for a more conventional control scheme in this case.
