Hi,
I would like to show you my progress so far in my current project. It is a 3D puzzle game. I am not sure yet if I will finish it...time will tell
I use DeleD as the level editor:

Fantastic stuff, really! Very Happy I really like the cartoony look 'n' feel you managed to get in there. Hope you finish it! Cool

Excellent work. Impressive what you can do with a relatively low power tool like Blitz 3d.

Thank you all.
Actually I am a C/C++ guy. When programming in C++, I feel like driving a Ferrari (or whatever equal you can imagine...). I have to be careful when managing this power which is very easy drive to a crash!
But when I using the Blitz3D it's like driving of my favorite scouter relaxing and enjoying the freedom of a 2 wheels vehicle... Smile

This is looking awesome! I'm looking forward to play the final version. Very Happy

I'm curious about how you use DeleD in this project. I see some red and green dots on the islands? Are those light-sources serving as powerup placeholders or something?
How do you make that raft move? Do you do that in your game code, or do you use DeleD animations to do it?
Also, do you use object tags to provide extra information to your game engine?

Yeah right now I'm coding java, so it sort of feels like driving a world war 1 era tank. It'll get there eventually, but at 4 mph. Very Happy

Hi, chronozphere and thank you for your comment
The red dots are squares (the screen shot does not help to see in detail), represents the positions of butterflies, the green cubes are represent the positions of waypoints. I heavily use the DeleD tags. Let's see an example:



These are the tags for a waypoint object:
The Waypoint field specifies the ID of the waypoint.
The PathID specifies the path the waypoint is belonging
The NextID and the PreviousID fields, indicates the next and the previous waypoints
I convert a .dxs file to a simple ascii text file with a utility which I have place in DeleD forums in the past. Here is the link for anyone is interested:

DeleD is a very good program that proves its usability in many different ways

Nice.. thanks for the explanation. Smile It may give people idea's on how to use DeleD for building dynamic game worlds.

Me and Paul Nicholls are working on a better path implementation.
The current (old) path feature is disabled. The next version will probably not contain the new path functionality because it takes more than 3 weeks (our release-cycle) to finish it. Therefore, you should probably keep using this version of DeleD for your project. When we are finished, you'll have WAY better path features/tools to play with.

Just something to keep in mind. Wink

Hi guys,
I've manage to complete a working game with the first playable level. I would be happy if you can give your feedback (especially your negatives)

http://wb4u.gr/temp/Castaway.exe

Especially I would like to know if the game runs without problems in Vista or 7 systems (I own XP)

The game engine is 90% complete. There are a lot of things needs to be done like push and climb animations for the main character, adding some sound effects, building animated and static models for enemies player and scenario. I hope I will be able to build about 40 levels.

Although my target was a commercial grade game it still remains a hobby project due to my poor 3D modeling and animation skills.

Unfortunately, I can't run it Sad

I have Vista Home Premium, when I run it, the whole screen goes black for around 10 seconds, and then I get the error below popup:



I don't know if it is because I have a notebook with some shared graphics card in it, and a widescreen monitor (1366 x 768 resolution)?

cheers,
Paul

Hi paul_nicholls, Smile
Thanks for your info. The game starts by default in full screen mode 1280x1024 32bit color
Please, if you have the time, download again because I changed the default settings to 800x600 32bit window mode

IMPORTAND: delete the settings.ini file (if any)

Hmm.. I get the following message:

---------------------------
Error!
---------------------------
Main_Initialize: g_tex_camera_frame=0
---------------------------
OK
---------------------------

After clicking OK, it just quits. Sad

Any ideas?

P.S: I've got a Geforce 8600GT, 2 gigs of RAM and a big monitor (my reso: 1280x800).
