Bug Reports / Re: GLB 15.004 DO NOT COMPILE
« Last post by Ian Price on Today at 05:31 pm »
Kanonet's example (as linked to) doesn't compile in any version of GLB as there are TYPEs that aren't declared. And your link just links to the whole forum index, not your example. :/

Haven't tried 15.xx s can't comment on that specifically.

Seen im got misse the two posts.

sprites is using smooth movements, not per pixel as the original resolution. They moving using by using .25 subpixel. That means graphics is scaled up by 4x from the original. The game engines howover would been pretty much spot on with the original game with the engines used. That also means HD graphics is also possible, which is done for some levels by Lobo (they look excellent). New graphics is possible for all engines.

All games will been done to 50 fps. but games that use Spectrum preshifting for sprites is also simulated for most cases.

There is of course some differents from various enginges (etc Sam Coupe is a excellent version, which is faster and cool music etc). We also have your own engine, which is the Nintendo DS version. Complete with all animations that happens in the original. Its a spot on ports and nice to play it in windows. The only missing is howover the story yet.

Also gameplay is a bit faster in this version for Perils of Willy, since the original was.... quite slow. but all its bugs is simulated (some was also abused by design).

A release should been pretty much before xmas. But the game is allready quite very very solid.

Orignal idae as Micheal Ware was wanted to show me and Few other how codning would works in Unity, which now turns to a bigger projects. But we dont have plans to sell its. Its all for fun. fun is also behind the project.

Thanks Erico!

I was aiming to keep the player character in view for the player by having the character appear above finger position.
Otherwise I would prob get people  saying they cant see player.

It should only be a little (small) offset.

So far the game is doing well in new arcade in a number of countries and #96 in US. :)
Got featured in Arcade sections in a number of countries.


Ps: Get your Burger Time game up on playstore too - Its looks like a 'hit' to me! :)

Took a while.
Tried it with a few kids (~8 years old).

We all found the controls a bit hard to master.
They are not bad, but a bit strange straight away, it felt it takes a little over too much to master.

Personally, the way you implemented the auto fire is perfect! It is just that there is something weird about touch-dragging and the player being a bit above, like you are always touching nothing, hard to explain ... like those bright spots that pops up inside the eyes every now and then and you can´t look straight at them :D .
