Re: The Darkness of Raven Wood

Hey all, As Zapiy/Jamie has mentioned we've talked about releasing it. I remember there was an issue (a technical issue waaaay over my head) with the game and the disc image. I said to come here and talk to you guys. If he/you/anyone can get it to work from a physical disc, then go for it I say. Jam...

Re: Micro Adventure

I've mentioned the game again on Twitter and it's getting loads of interest and very nice comments, particularly about the graphics. Chrome is blocking the download off rucksack games :shock: I can confirm that I had that issue too. I just used Edge to download it instead. You may be able to get ar...

So the differences over Les Howarth's original are things like... * Bespoke graphics for every location. * Very basic music and sound effects. * Extended location descriptions and item descriptions. * Some minor bug fixes from the original type-in code. * Additional Loader screen and in-game Titlesc...

Thanks Rich. The wireframe must be quicker to render and looks far cleaner than busy graphics. Looking at things like this on the Spectrum for instance its hard to tell whats going on.

Re: Doom?

Wouldn't it be easier and may be even a bit nicer from an FPS viewpoint to do a hidden Wireframe poly environment and then spend the graphic budget on the Sprites? For me the speed of gameplay is more important than trying to replicate a textured environment. Just and idea. :wink:
