Awesomium

Filed under: life — Tags: , , , , — zproxy @ 12:28 pm

Today I learned, that there is a 3D internet explorer renderer out there.

This is what it looks like if you would be playing my treasure hunt multiplayer flash game.

What did I do to make it work?

  • Download Awesomium v1.0 demo
  • Add a link to the game in media\demo.html
  • Select Direct3D9 renderer

I guess there is room for more 3d browsers… and don’t forget Cooliris.

Wolf3D for iPhone

Filed under: games — Tags: , , , , — zproxy @ 2:21 pm

[…] the Red Cross organization had asserted their trademark rights over red crosses (sigh) some time after we released the original Wolfenstein 3D game, and all new game releases must not use red crosses on white backgrounds as health symbols

[…]It will not be hard to take the code that is already fun to play, pull a bunch of fun things off the net out of various projects people have done with the code over the years, dust off some old map editors, and load up with some modern quality art and sound.

Everyone is perfectly within their rights to go do that, and they can aggressively try to bury the original game if they want. However, I think there is actually a pretty good opportunity for cooperation. If anyone makes a quality product and links to the original Wolf app, we can start having links to “wolf derived” or “wolf related” projects.

That should turn out to be a win for everyone.

I’m going back to Rage for a while, but I do expect Classic Doom to come fairly soon for the iPhone.

Here is my take on Wolf3D which dates back to 2008 august. It is  a flash prototype, written in c#, converted to actionscript via jsc compiler and running on dell latitude xt.

The Making Of Doom

“The game designer shouldn’t be making a world in which the player is just a small part,” echoed Carmack. “The player’s the boss; it’s your duty to entertain him or her.” In the midst of this debate and other creative differences, Hall left Id to become project manager at Apogee. – gamesetwatch

Working on a raycaster

Filed under: jsc — Tags: , , , , , — zproxy @ 4:17 pm

First things first. I got a brand new dell latitude xt tablet. They talk about multitouch, but believe me, its not there yet. Atleast not in a sense of a real multi-touch. Maybe with the next update from dell…

In the meanwhile I have been working on a wolf look a like and learning about raycasting. Someday there will be a release where one can play multiplayer flash wolf on a touchscreen:)
