Digger Remastered v0.1 (Wii Game Port)

Digger was released on PC in 1983 by Windmill software. Andrew Jenner loved it so much that he created an open source version called Digger Remastered. The object of the game is to get as many points as possible by eating all the emeralds and bags of gold. The Hobbins and Nobbins don’t seem to like you doing this and they will try to stop you. You can terminate them by squishing with the gold bags, eating them after you get the magical cherry powerup or shooting them with your slow to recharge fireball.

Harmony’s Nightmare v1.1 (Wii Game)

Harmony’s Nightmare by Mr. Reaper is a multi-Genre platform, reflex, puzzle survival game with horror theme.

Harmony's Nightmare v1.0 www.nintendomax.com


1.1 = Lots of behind-the-scenes code optimizations and small visual/animation tweaks/adjustments. Also, I thought level 3 was too easy compared to the other levels, so I MADE IT HARDER, Mwhahahaha! But the note placement on that level is better now, so maybe I need to make it harder still >:) I also tried to work around some random sound issues (it seems that gcmodplay and/or aesndlib have some problems…). Maybe at some point I’ll try converting everything to use asndlib and see if it fixes the random sound glitches completely.

Wii Independent Rendering Engine 3D (Wire3D) v1.0.2 (Wii misc)

Wire3D (Wii Independent Rendering Engine 3D) is an open source, object oriented, multiplatform 3D engine written in C++, supporting homebrew Wii and Windows (DirectX). It provides a framework to developers for writing platform agnostic 3D applications (including physics using the Bullet Physics library) that run on Wii and Windows out of the box.

Wire3D: Demo


* draw call batching of static and dynamic geometry
* text rendering
* skybox node
* VertexBuffer uses 32bit color (instead of 4 floats) now, so no more conversion at Bind() time. Note: Although interface changed, there are no changes for the user due to implicit conversion operators to/from ColorRGB(A).
* IndexBuffer only uses 16bit indices, as Wii does not support 32bit indices anyways. Note: Interface only changed on IndexBuffer::GetData(), if you are accessing index buffers via operator there are no changes necessary.
* (PC) fixed renderer statistics bug when ResetDevice()/DestroyAll() was issued.
* (PC) fixed NVIDIA PerfHUD getting stalled when pressing a key.
* (Wii) fixed anisotropic texture filtering

* tleaking vertex data fixed
* support for “Static” flagged transformations
* fixed missing Spotlight parameters

* freetype2 font engine added

* updated Sample3, Sample10 and Demo to showcase new features
