SoR's New Computer Game!
« on: August 06, 2010, 05:36:39 AM »
I had an hour or so free, and was looking round SoR a bit and decided that something was missing, something very important...
SoRs very own video game!

Created with the free "Game Maker 8" drag and drop game creation software, and using sprites from all over the SoR main-site, this interactive computer game puts you in the shoes of a Bluebot called "Admin".
Fight Hackers and Spammers while collecting battery's and Axons to gain points and rise in rank.

Ok i haven't gotten that far but it's still good for a hours work.
Hope you guys like it!
Enjoy

Download link:

HACKERs attack (will add spammers)

Not compatible with 64 bit computers! Get with the times man!

Well sounds fun, can't try it out though.

Madsci, you'll probably have to run it in 32 bit Windows XP mode.
If you have a problem with that, get backward compatible!

 :-\ Did you not think I would have tried that? It seems it's a 16bit program, there is no mode for running that on a 64 bit OS.

And don't attempt to justify the issues as something the end user needs to fix. It's been well over a decade since the general computing platform has moved to 32bit, any software suite that has not recompiled for 32bit by now either no longer has developers or has no decent developers. There is no logical reason to hold back progress, or to further bog down modern OS with emulators to continue support because of these old programs.

Over half of all Win 7 computers in the world are 64 bit. So you are writing a game that a very large portion of your audience can't enjoy.

I've read somewhere that 32 bit compatibility mode with Vista/7 is not really compatible.

It works on my computer fine(32bit), and it is 32bit.
It does, however, NOT work when you have multi-boot and the OS you are running is on a drive other than (C:)

You might be able to help me port it, but you would have to download some things.

What errors do you get, too?

I get



Historically, all Windows versions were backwards compatible with the previous bit environment. So 16 bit runs fine for your 32 bit OS, but not my 64 bit.

I took some time and googled. It looks like Game maker is indeed 32 bit (I;m assuming), but has a long history not working with Windows 7. Care to find a fix for your audience?

I don't think I'll be able to help, as I said I don't have a 64 bit computer, and since i use Game Maker lite I can't use/make plugins for 64bit machines.
I'll try to find something for you though...

I thought about flash, but, a flash developer costs $200+ :-\
And I like Game-Makers drag and drop interface ;)

In Version 0.3 I'll fix the numerous bugs.

I'll try to change moving to I K J L.
Firing will still be A & D.

I hope you don't mind Admin but all pictures/sprites are from SoRs banners and pictures...

Why not use the more common wasd for movement and maybe shift/enter/mouse click to fire?
Just my opinion as this is generally what most games use these days...

Hi,

Splash screen spelling error! (it's computer, not computor).

Apart from that. I get a 'bot and two whatever (bacon slices with a bit of string?) that I can take, I can shoot left and right with A and D, T doesn't do anything and when the bacon is gone I can move back and forth and outside the screen, but that's it - gets boring in about 0.3s as is.
Regards,
Søren

A rather fast and fairly heavy robot with quite large wheels needs what? A lot of power?
Please remember...

I've decided to scrap using SoR pictures for sprites and objects, and have decided to do something like this:

If I do a good story, it could be a nice effect...

I'll ask the guys at Yoyo games if they can port things to iPad.
They already can port to PSP, but that's only if you win their competitions...
which is really hard...

iPhone/itouch/ipad app

What about Android? It has been outselling iphone for the past 6 months. Why no mention of an Android App?

That's about the only thing keeping apple in business. iPhones have always been lower quality, less features and less power then competitors for years, not to mention Apple is now more evil then Microsoft ever was, and o yeah, it's a completely closed source system.

Don't get me started on the blatant hypocrisy of Linux users that have iphones.

Come on!
I can't do all this
My list grows:
iPad
iPhone
Android
PSP
And i'm not even a Yoyo games developer!
We might need the special forces to convince them(Admin)...
