Its a top idea (Cas did mention something earlier about arrows around the edge), colouring would be a nice touch tho..

TBH, at the moment I've having network troubles, so funky feature updates are on hold Smiley

Astroprime has hit version 0.15a Wink Had to tell someone. Its got multiplayer, collisions, shooting and asteroids. I've also made the play area loop round to prevent not being able to find people. In addition, I've reduced the max speed that you can thrust up to. However, you can still get going faster by ramming into asteroids (storing up momentum) and then bouncing off them later on Smiley

Most of the features listed in the thread have been added to the agenda and will be going in. Thanks again for all the help.

I'm carrying on, even though I'm not quite sure whats going to make this game fun.

I'm also having some annoying bugs cropping up that can't be reproduced easily which is leading me to believe that my code integrity isn't that great. So I'll be spending quite a while documenting the code and understanding whats going on before a large phase of refactoring..

Thanks again folks..

This is getting annoying, I've been trying to fix an issue with starting in full screen (well generally actually) that causes all the textures to come out pure red.

I've updated the version back to the old method of doing init. Should work ok now..

Yah know, for the Java Web Start problem, I just used j2re 1.4.1_04. The j2sdk1.4.2 with NetBeans didn't setup my j2re so I had to download a separate version. Fullscreen works fine for me. Actually everthing works fine.  Wink

Considering skipping the battle/combat only game and going stragiht for the MMO. I have a feeling this would be far more interesting to players..

Any thoughts appeciated..

Why don't you start a thread in Your Games Here for announcements? I missed this one because of the obscure thread name. Wink

It seems to work better now, but that desktop integration popup seems to kill it. I had to taskswitch to click it, then switch back to the game.

I'm going to write a test case for this red rectangle thing. It seems to be that the wrong mode is being selected by the GLCapabilities chooser, but when I tried to fix this, it screwed up a bunch of other stuff.

As and when I've got this test case ready, could you test it for me Krypto?

PS. I'll open a topic on Your Games Here pretty soon, just want to make one more update b4 then.

Krypto (and anyone else who keeps getting red textures)..

Could you try the contents of:

http://www.cokeandcode.com/astroprime/test/JoglModeTest.zip

You'll be presented with the list of modes jogl thinks you support. Select one that seems good and try it.. you should get a "Jogl Test" message on the screen. Keep hold of the standard output, it'll list the mode that was request, the mode jogl would have normally chosen and will display the mode you're selecting...

Let me know if any of the modes actually get you normal text on your graphics card..

Thanks for any help,

Kev

1) Shouldn't we move the Thread? I think it doesn't belong in Game Play ;-) ?!

2) I tried your stuff, but all I get is a strange Jogl exception. I tried to fix it, but I didn't get a solution to it:

Just tried it and got the same thing.. windowed mode worked ..

Then for some reason I couldn't shoot anymore, after 2 shots. I may have hit alt or something t take the focus away for a second.. but it was back, cause I could still steer the ship.

There's a comms issue that I'm working on. Frankly, my network code appears to be a bit pap.. rewriting as we speak (the flying bit is controlled client side, so you could still fly but not shoot).

Sorry to revive an old thread, but having just seen Herk's JPilot prototype I've decided to air a thought I've been having on Astroprime and hopefully solicit some feedback.

I've been wondering about removing the flying bit altogether and making it literally a space trading game, i.e. no control over ship over and above a few strategic decisions and course plotting. Although I've already gone down the track of supporting multiplayer flying within the universe I'm wondering whether I really need this. The main reason I've come down to this is 2D. If I'm going to allow players to fly in 2D do they really care about the flying bit at all. I mean, if it were 3D and totally immersive I can imagine people wanting to fly the ship.

I enjoy flying the ship in 2D or at least what I've played already, but I'm simply wondering whether its worth including for the masse of players? This is also currently leading me to want to jump to another project (yet again).

The current web site is: http://www.newdawnsoftware.com/astroprime

Any thoughts, feedback or slating appreciated..

I personally don't like pure strategy games, so I would prefer the flying around stayed.

E.g. I would play Elite or Frontier... but without the interactive direct control, you might as well have a text only game.

I love flying in 2D. And I don't say that only because I develop the 2d stuff with you Wink . I love playing the old-style games.
And it's easier to create a good lookin 2d game than a 3d game. If you go 3d, you have to go with all the latest effects, more work for you Smiley.
