The year is 2174, and you have been ordered to function as an orbital sniper. In your world there's just three kinds of people: VIPs, dissidents and normal citizens. VIPs run the world: they must not come to harm. Dissidents must die. If a commoner or two gets wasted in progress, it'll count against you when your post ends. You were a normal citizen only moments ago. If you manage to prove yourself and keep VIPs safe in your area, they might make you a VIP. Or do poorly enough and they might decide that you're the enemy. On screen, VIPs are designated blue, threats are designated red and the normal folk are white. You control the target with mouse; right-drag or use mouse wheel to zoom. Different zoom modes are useful for different things. Zoom full out to see the whole situation at a glance (with all that useless clutter removed), or zoom full in for better aiming. Several levels of zoom in between give different information. Left click fires your gun (which is based on some new physics laws that we haven't invented yet, as the target is destroyed instantly). The gun reloads for three seconds, so make sure you hit. A typical game round lasts for about 4 minutes. It starts out easy, but gets rather nasty later on. Comments etc can be tossed my way; my current email address is jari.komppa@kolu****.fi, but you can find me at http://iki.fi/sol even if that changes. Cheers, Sol -- 8< -- 8< -- Version 1.20 Top view now shows connections, and otherwise gameplay has been tweaked a bit. Version 1.12 Spawn point location finder had one wrong variable.. Version 1.11 Stupid mistake made it possible to spawn several VIPs at once. Version 1.10 - Click to restart the game - Made it less probable for more than 1 VIP to stroll around - Made the game easier -- 8< -- 8< -- Build log ---- Saturday ---- 4am contest begins 10am I manage to drag myself out of bed, with a great idea of a game if it has a 'gravity' theme, and find that it's 'guardian'. Ponder upon several ideas, take a walk. 11am Start drawing a city map. Set up SDL. Find out that SDL doesn't have a stretch blit. Decide to write my own. First version done, I'm hungry. 12.30am Start cooking pancakes. 12.40am Get the great idea to keep a log 1:30pm Damn, cooking these pancakes takes a long time. 2:00pm Armed with a batch of pancakes, strawberry jam and prototype zoomer, I start working on mouse control. 2:10pm Mental note: buy dronningholm jam next time. 3:34pm Mouse control implemented + clippings & unreal dither implemented in zoomer 3:52pm fixed some bugs in unreal dither reading outside image, added crosshairs & wobble 4:21pm Working on writer, found that SDL's SDL_MUSTLOCK macro doesn't work. 4:39pm Blitting from one 8bit surface, changing palette, blitting again doesn't work. Have to make several copies of font.. 5:15pm Split source base into several source files. 6:13pm Made prototype sprite stuff 6:32pm drew AI waypoint map 7:00pm did tracing code for AI waypoints 7:31pm posted first screenshot in ludum dare 7:42pm designed AI data structure; time to cook something.. omelet, ham, potatoes. 8:21pm Done eating finally, going to mix some drink and then I'll work on AI behaviors. 9:53pm Pedestrian AI is somewhat finished 10:02pm Did a simple shooting animation 10:59pm Drew logo screen 12:05am Created the game end screen ---- Sunday ---- 1:10am Did preliminary VIP and bad guy spawns, fixed a bug in clipper with a kludge (too tired to think, really). Only real thing left before calling this a game are the VIP and bad guys' AI:s. I'm calling it a day. 9:29am About 18 hours to go, I manage to drag my self up the bed again. I was wrong when I whined about the competition hours.. these are just about optimal for me. 10:52am Made different zoom levels more sensible & made it so that camera wobble doesn't affect HUD stuff -> now there's a point in zooming extremely out (find VIPs and threats fast) and extremely in (actually hit someone) 10:59am Added mouse wheel support (for zoom) 11:03am Breakfast. 12:19pm VIP and bad guys AIs done. Tweaked the target and spawn times a bit. 12:38pm Added different game over reasons, fixed couple bugs. The game is now playable, about 23 hours after the first lines of code. Time to start cooking again.. 2:23pm Made enough pasta sauce for a family of 4. Oh dear. Dug up my old and amazingly crappy microphone, downloaded goldwave and recorded some sounds. 3:46pm Added sound. Next up is alpha blended, scaling sprite routines. Joy. 4:05pm Avoiding the abovementioned task, added some stats to the game over screen. 4:12pm Took a shower. 5:31pm Sprites plugged in 5:52pm Added screen border indicators. Time to try a release build for the first time. 6:10pm Mixed some more drink, loaded the laundry machine and put it on, played around a bit with the target display. 6:58pm Added target information screens 7:39pm Hunting a mystery bug.. only occurs in release mode. 7:50pm Hm. Using release mode + fullscreen crashed the system so totally that I lost the contents of the main cpp file at least. I have no idea how much had happened after my last backup. I at least lost sound and all the tweaking I did to the game settings. ARGH! 8:09pm Since the game didn't crash anymore, I just have to hope that the crash was caused by the audio system. Oh dear. Which I'll now start to recode. 8:35pm Audio re-implemented 8:43pm Managed to get it to crash in fullscreen again, but not in windowed mode, and SDL happily just kills off the application without letting me debug if we're in fullscreen. Joy. 9:08pm Made the fullscren mode also a software surface, doesn't seem to crash anymore. Probably a rare overflow somewhere. =( 9:14pm Changed sprite drawing so that it'll draw slightly outside the screen - clipping is performed per pixel but who cares, we have CPU power.. The clipping was done earlier, so that's not the cause of the bug. 9:21pm ARGH! crashed again. 9:32pm Managed to crash in windowed mode: AIs were trying to use wrong waypoints in some obscure case. 9:52pm Ran physics loop at 10x speed for several minutes in fullscreen release mode and nothing crashed, so I'd guess the AI stuff is fixed now. I'm fairly confident (fingers crossed) that that was it. Next up: packaging & documentation. 10:15pm Finished, now I'll just zip it up and toss it away..
