This is not a new game but it is freeware from now on Smiley

Download Here! (Windows installer, older version of LWJGL, 32-bit only)

Download Here Also! (Zip file with LWJGL 2.8.5)

Run the unzipped zip file with:
1  
java -cp .;lwjgl.jar springworld.engine.Main



It is made with lwjgl.
I have unfortunately lost the source code for it Sad

Also, the highscore/replay submission doesn't work since the site springworldchallenge.com is not active.

Thanks!
I'll maybe port it to Android (after decompilation/rewrite, sigh...)

It was this game that tought me to not implement my own script language. It uses a really crappy XML-based script language for the levels Smiley. It is very mod-friendly though.

rawr said I had wrong version of java

then a bunch of errors

then downloaded java 6 built in, no luck
then downoaded installed java x64 direct from oracle, no luck
tried commandline java 6 x64,  said there wasnt proper lwjgl for 64? (include those!)
then i downloaded java 6 x32 and command lined it
arghh, it is grabbing the wrong java, i have too many jre's installed

manually type in location of java 6 x32 recent install, using the commandline java method to execute the zip(the exe never worked)

and it worked! YAY


it was actually quite fun. There are some really cool and unique things in the game, especially the destruction and your solution to 'car flipped over??, its okay! hood rocket!'


I think if you polished it up a little for android and/or tablet, you could have a really true winner there.

look at #2
https://play.google.com/store/apps/category/GAME/collection/topselling_free

direct link:
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fingersoft.hillclimb

I think your game with a little tweaking, could be beat that game and be so much more, and that game got over 5 million installs, in a relatively short time.

WHAT? How do you lose source code for such an elaborate game? You used to sell this, didn't you? Smiley

Is the destruction/physics your own (as in written by you)?  Smiley

Yeah I sold a whopping 5 or 6 copies Smiley

The physics engine is my own. You can see all the versions of it in this video

The zip-file now contains the latest version of lwjgl (sorry if you got the one with the profile "krase" Smiley ). It seems to work Shocked

I made the mistake to just let the code evolve and not save the old version. It is not actually lost, but it can't be used for the old game without a serious rewrite or decompilation. I wanted to make a space shooter but the project just halted Sad

Yeah, sorry, I forgot to add a Wink. I know about github but I haven't started using it yet. It would have helped me now if I had used any such system 4 years ago.

Because you can reverse your modification. I just started using it one week ago and for someone who didn't understand git system (I used bzr in past), it's quite complicated.

Wow, this game is real professional. And this was made without version control? You're kidding right?

It's quite difficult too. Not an easy game. Smiley

No version control, that's the truth Smiley

Probably an Android version next year. Would be fun to cooperate with a skilled Android/libgdx dev and an artist and share the rewards Wink. Someone who believes in this adventure?

Might I recommend a few then? Smiley

If your project is open-source, I would suggest go with github, gitorious or code.google.com. The last one supports Mercurial and Subversion as well.

Otherwise, you can try bitbucket.org which has private repos for upto 5 users/project.

I'll probably go with github or google code. I have used cvs and subversion for other larger research projects, but I've never set anything up myself.

Sorry for the off topic, byt it seems that here is the only place to contact you.
I've seen that you are the author of the open source jcgmusic.
Unfortunatey I can't find it anywhere.
Is there any luck to post it somewhere and make it available somehow?

Thank you
