    Jeknoid: Thanks!
    Germ: To what end? Only the game is actually in a scripting language which runs in an interpreter.
    PeterHull: Yes!
    Zxfra: No cheats, I'm afraid. But remember you can start from any level you've reached so far.

    Hi !

    I don't have windows, I found it interesting having it running on *nix.

    Do you mean that you have had it running on *nix, or that you'd like to. If the latter, then it's Graham's call, but IMO it certainly could be done, since all the dependencies run on Linux at least.

    Pete

    ps. Neil, for I assume it is you, why are you now posting as 'Sinclair'?

    I think Sinclair is our default retrospec management id or summat. Only this is Graham posting under it's name now, but it weren't back then.

    Darkside: Ta!

    zxfra: Woo! I've corrupted a whole family. wink.gif

    peterhull90: Call it a hidden feature. wink.gif Actually, I shoulda' mentioned it in the readme but it's not like it's hard to try mashing your pad while defining your keys...

    germ: I'm okay with a *nix conversion although it's not summat I'd do myself. I figured it was a pretty niche area, tbh. As long as the person who does it is a pleasure to work with like Peter and not someone who comes back with loads of things he thinks is semantically wrong with my code rather than actually wrong with it.

    On the subject of Linux, I've got Kubuntu on my PC, so I'll have a go. The only thing I don't know is how portable a binary release would be.

    Isn't OSX just linux with a wanky IDE? wink.gif

    I think binaries should be portable as they use a standard file format, but then again the majority of unix people frown upon binaries and would rather spend an hour compiling source instead.

    Sinclair is whoever likes to be him. But do you like the icon, we adopted him from the Army of Trolls.

    Loving this conversion, so far i'm stuck solid on level 5. One thing that slightly bugs me however is the game always loads in the top corner when in windowed mode, other remakes downloaded here load in the center of the screen, can this be changed? wacko.gif

    That was the alternative tag-line that Apple's marketing gurus came up with, prior to the launch of OS X 10.0.

    Trolls? Seems appropriate.

    Be sure to watch the Steve Jobs Keynote at MacWorld expo next week; it will blow your tiny mind, Windows Fan-boy.

    Back on-topic, it's really impressive how much of the game is done via scripts - it looks like retrengine will be very flexible indeed. I'm looking forward to the next game!

    Yay!!!!

    After a couple of days of constant battling....I got to level three!!!!

    Ok....yes, I'm crap......... dry.gif

    /me wanders away to hide in shame

    wink.gif


    Still very much addicted to this...I love the forcefield/barrier-type things. Nice rainbowy effect....and the way you bounce back when you collide with it is a nice touch.

    All in all, a nice remake.....great sounds, luverly graphics....I even spotted the sneaky inclusion of the Cybernoid 2 ship making a cameo appearance from time to time....

    Peter: Haha, I was thinking more along the lines of Allegro.cc's STL and Openlayer Enforcement Reichstag. wink.gif

    PixelPerson: Level 5 is the last level and is therefor OBSCENELY hard - also due to me designing it rather than it being based on Exolon's original level 5. I did that because Exolon's level 5 is just a copy of another level with one room changed. Quite frankly if anyone beats it I'll be amazed, although as a reward I really put some effort into the completion effect - it's pretty swanky. smile.gif

    Darkside: Level 3? Tsk! Get a move on, man! smile.gif Glad you like the forcefields, though - I'm a sucker for rainbowey stuff.

    Hi,

    It works via wine, but I have between 2 and 4 fps, and I cannot go throught the main menu..

    I discovered your game via that website, I can't really play without having it being recompiled. I don't care about the actual sources, but if you don't want to give them, I wont mind.

    However, if you wanna a port, I am in !

    bye !

    A great remake biggrin.gif a bit more difficult than original, seems the double canons didn't shoot from close distance on CPC version...
    ...I just restarted CPCE emulator to compare, it's really close to original but more eyecandy (love GL effects wub.gif ) smile.gif great job !!

    Hmm, the dual cannon's usually stop firing once you are close enough but there seems to be a slight collision bug which will occasionally let a bullet through. I might have actually closed that loop in the latest version, though, but I ain't posted a binary of it because it's not a huge concern and I'd like to wait for Peter's MAC source so I can combine 'em up...

    I have no problem with a proper linux version, though, as I've said.

    OMG I finally completed it! The ending is pretty sweet too, lots of visual candy. Trying to contain my excitement and not give too much away here. biggrin.gif

    I can barely get past level 1, I think I'd better start thinking of using a memory tracker smile.gif

    So where's your high-score entry then PixelPerson?

    to the team behind the game WELL DONE...

    everythings spot on... BUT for one very minor/small/niggly/ikkle problem..

    (I feel bad posting it) unsure.gif

    when you enter the hi-score can you PLEASE PLEASE (pretty please, with sugar on top) make it so it's centred.. and also save the hi score..

    its nothing I know... the graphics / gameplay / sound are very good... and the engine of the game is nice also..


    only problem i have.. which is better.. this or LJM.. which means you lot are doing amazing work biggrin.gif

    If you want some music done in future , the offers there... happy new year...
