Stevie G1+ years ago #1
Over the the last month I've got my programming mo-jo back. I've been working on this religiously, determined to get it done very early next year. I've been ironing out all the niggling issues and completing the original to-do list step by step.

Things I have now completed:

Done:

* 30 Timed Challenges - To unlock some Team Games, Levels and Vehicles
* 26/26 Team Games
* 18/19 Levels
* 23/24 Vehicles
* Sandbox Mode

To Do:

* 1 Level - need to create a level specific model for this.
* 1 vehicle - almost compled
* Timetrial mode - almost completed - just need to set out the checkpoints for each level.
* AI - a few tweeks
* Challenges - sort out the order and the unlockables - almost complete.

Anywho, it's all looking pretty good to get this one over the line early 2015.

Win! Where's the 'Like' button?

Microsprint will continue to keep me busy until then. :)

Woohoo!!! It's alive!!!
Readying my wallet to throw money at the screen!


Stevie G1+ years ago #12
Thanks folks! Last level specific model complete - my take on HMS Illustrious. It took fecking ages to do today and I've still got a few tweeks to go but I'm happy with the results so far ..

I'll need to upload the latest version of that ... there are now 140 tracks, overhanging bends and jumps ..

Gimbal lock! Love it.

Really nice graphics style! Sorry for the stupid question, but this is Blitz3d right?

I love those 90's style filled polygons :) Well done so far, Stevie!

Holy cow, yes please! And do mention when you've done it... as otherwise I'm not sure I'll know...

[edit] Aah, I see you sent out an update for v2, but sadly indievania.com (whence my Microsprint came) is no more. Sadface. I hope you know that. [/edit]

Microsprint looks great, I was always Supersprint fan, loved the 3 wheel multiplayer on the arcade machine.

Quick Easter update. Still slowly but surely working through my ever decreasing "todo" list.

Here's a few screenshots of some of the Vehicles / Games I created a while back which I don't think I've shown yet:

The Baja

Definitely looking good there. I'm loving everything I've seen so far


Rick Nasher1+ years ago #23
Looking pretty awesome. Any vids?


ImaginaryHuman1+ years ago #24
Love it


Blitzplotter1+ years ago #25
Looking good!


Steve Elliott1+ years ago #26
Actually, it plays better than it looks - there was a demo back some time ago. But I do love the untextured poly look anyway :)


Grisu1+ years ago #27
I demand a demo! ;)


Stevie G1+ years ago #28
Fraps really does suck!! To get footage at full frame rate I had to reduce the resolution to 640x480 and record at half size! Then, the quality drops even more when uploaded to youtube :(

I'll need to look into other options when I get round to doing a proper trailer I think - might even be best to use my phone.

Anywho, for what it's worth.

DAMNIT, me wants this so badly. I throw money at the screen but it just bounces off....

Here's slightly better quality footage on Vimeo of the 'Loonball Rally' party game.

Nice videos. I hope, that you will finish this.


OldNESJunkie1+ years ago #32
Just out of curiosity, have you tested this with Ploppy's Hybrid? Curious to hear whether it ran or not...

Nope, never tried it. As far as I can tell it isn't feature complete yet. I don't want to get side tracked at this stage.

Good point I guess, was just a random question that popped in my head so I typed her up.....
