1  Games Center / 4K Game Competition - 2006 / Re: And the winner is ... on: 2006-03-13 21:12:38
Oh well can't win them all.  I really thought SpyHunter4k would have rated higher than it did.  Of course, Dave and I approached it from the wrong viewpoint--how much can we squeeze into 4k.  We were trying to be as close to the arcade version as we could, same screen size, same sprites and didn't focus on playability at all.  It wasn't until after we sumbitted that we realized that if we had quatered the graphics we could have added more of the original game play. 

In creating the game we came up with three new techniques of byte saving that none of the other games use.  For that alone we are proud of what we submitted. 

I just wish more people would have recognized the technical achievements for what they were. 

Hopefully next year we can break into the top 10. 

It was lots of fun guys!  Congrats to the winners!

Unfortunately, if you don't have a good video card your 850mhz computer isn't going to be fast enough to drive it at a full 30fps.  That's because the game draws each pixel individually.  One of the sacrifices we had to make for size. 

With that being said, I did play it on one computer at work that had problems limiting the frame rate.  I installed the latest 1.4.2 JRE on the computer and it solved the problem.  Perhaps you are having the same problem on your 2ghz computer.  What version of the JRE are you running???
