BloodGDX v0.791.0.02 (Pandora Game Port)

BloodGDX is based on Java’s libgdx framework v0.99 source port of the original Blood from Monolith. BloodGDX is tested with Blood v1.00 and Steam version 1.21, but will working with any full versions of Blood!

Further release notes by ptitSeb:

The game use Java (so you need it installed on your Pandora) and OpenGL (so using gl4es). Also, you need the data from a full version of Blood to play this PND. Version from GoG or Steam or CD should work.

There is an ini file so it’s pre-configured. On my Gigahertz, it’s pretty smooth, with FPS most of the time around 15 minimum (with some short dip at 10fps, mostly with Java JIT triggers).

BloodGDX is closed source, so it’s “stock” version here, with the only customisation beeing the custom build of libgdx (and liblwjgl).

Video: NES Programming #30 – Map seems to be okay here but … No! Not the sleep key! (NES misc)

NES Programming #30 – Map seems to be okay here but … No! Not the sleep key!

Watch this video on YouTube.

Quote:

Well, I accidentally hit the sleep key on my keyboard. More than once. Thankfully, it didn’t mess up the streaming or recording for this episode. I *did* also manage to get the map scrolling and loading fixed, so now the game actually has a working map! At this point, I need to get some real graphics, figure out how I’m going to load enemies, and also get the asset tool to allow for the map to scroll. You know, all the things that will be needed to actually make this a playable game 🙂

NES Programming #29 – Rendering the map and exporting the data

Watch this video on YouTube.

Quote:

It worked?! I mean – of course it worked! In this episode I took the data from the JSON map data and used it to test rendering the map in the asset tool and then export the file as binary to the actual game. Made some really great progress tonight and I’m looking forward to fixing some strange bugs with the tile loading code on the NES side on Monday. Have a great weekend!
