Development Report #5 (27.10.2009)

Post by Crypton » Tue Oct 27, 2009 3:53 am

After one month break, there is another progress report for those who are still interested :)

Changelog:

-Source codes are completely ported to Linux, all WinApi code was removed, so now its possible to run them under Windows and Linux, other plaforms were not tested yet.
-Most of code is already translated from ArcanumPascalum sources.
-Mobiles loader and prototypes loader are partially finished.
-Map loader, sector loader and other stuff is mostly finished.
-Added zooming, 8x zoom in, 16x zoom out.
-Added support for software rendering.
-Developed new file format for .Art sprites, its called Aso (Advanced Sprite Object), is support having more versions of Art in one Aso, which can differ not only in colors, but in can be completely different sprite, plus its more modder friendly because it contains frames are saved as image, it has support for BMP, TGA, PNG, JPG etc, and its able to handle any data, not only graphics, because it has a tree container structure.

We're definately still interested. :D
If you can't go through a problem, go over it, under it, or around it.

Just found out about this project via freegamer blog. I was a big fan of the game and I would really like to see it come to Linux. Keep up the good work. Cheers! :clap:

Same here. Arcanum may just about be the best game ever. I am a Linux user and would be happy to help. I know a lot about Arcanum, though I am not a good coder, I am a musician and artist. Please get in touch with me if there is anything I can do to help. As long as there is a Linux port, I am on board.

If I neglect to see a reply here; you can reach me at:

Yeah, Linux is important!
Just remember that as soon as you have a SVN or Git server set up I'm in :)
