You keep on saying "SPARToR/McDiddy's" Are you trying to signify that you are going to make other games on the SPARToR engine?

Yes. SPARToR is very much designed for making more games than just McDiddy's.

Also, I really like how when the bullet hits the edge of the screen it fades out.
Its a nice touch.

That's really so I can see if I'm overdrawing anything. Soon it will just be black outside the viewport but for now it's good for debugging.

Well maybe for one of the guns. Like Snakeman's power in Megaman 3.

Is it right that the bullets move along the bottom of the screen, killing any and all slugs? When you aim down, that is.

I just left it in because I thought it was fun.

I'm not too worried about the edge-of-screen detection right now because it's all got to be redone to allow scrolling anyway.



You should put V8 in it.

I am going to put V8 in WhiteBird, probably on the Gecko layout engine.

They don't need to! C# is cross-language. I am not sure how it works, but essentially you can call C++ or VB code from C#.


MSDN said:
One of the major benefits of Microsoft® .NET is that it provides a language-independent development system. You can write classes in Visual Basic®, C++, C#—whatever—and use them in other languages; you can even derive from classes in a different language. But what happens when you want to call some old-school unmanaged DLL? You have to somehow translate .NET objects into the structs, char*'s, and function pointers C expects. In techno lingo, your parameters must be marshaled. Marshaling is a big topic, but luckily you don't have to know much to get the job done.

I have no idea if you were being serious but I have been messing around with Lua a bit. I'm not sure if I'm going to have a scripting language or not in SPARToR. Right now it doesn't seem there'd be any real benefit. Maybe that'll change later.

New version: 0.1m

There's joystick support now! Please try it out if you have a game controller.

Joysticks/drivers are real bitches about button and axis numbers so the defaults may not work for you:
Axis 0 or 3: Left/Right
Axis 1 or 4: Up/Down
Button 1: Jump
Button 2: Fire

To change the controls, use the bind command. You will be asked to press a key/button/stick:
bind jump
bind left
bind fire
etc...

Uff, I suppose I might be able to get a wired 360 controller soon, maybe. Possibly even within the next couple of weeks!

I have like 6 in my drawer hah. I buy new ones and just keep my pld ones xP
But even then, I had my honor. The largest Banora White tree grew on a wealthy man's estate. It was rumored, that those apples tasted the best, but I never stole from that tree, because the wealthy man's son, was my friend...
