Title: Motion Tracker (as seen in the movie ALIENS)
Post by: Achim on 2009-Jun-24
Hello @ all !

It's been a while since my last post here in the GL Forum but nevertheless I'm still doing some lines of coding.

Due to the point that I want to make a small "fan movie" in the ALIENS universe I badly needed a Motion Tracker device as seen in the movie back in 1986. One of my all time classic movies - by the way.

So here's the final result:

The tracker device is fully customizable (e.g. number of blips, blip direction & speed) and behaves nearly like the original one in the movie.

Awesome, taking requests?

Everyone needs a "Tricorder" as seen in Star Trek ca. 1970's'ish

Aliens. Gotta love them. Great idea :)

Hemlos: WarmFluffyUK created a Wiz ST Tricorder - should be a doddle for her to compile it for GP2X seeing as she's using Fenix. Ask her over at www.gp32x.com and she'll sort you out.
