Software News   Software News : Thunder Works Consider Port of Jet Thunder
   posted by Toaks on 23-Sep-2004 13:01:45 (6194 reads)
As Amiga Flame reports this wonderfull 3d flight simulation is beeing considered ported to Amiga:

"In the AmigaOS forum, Steven Dobbs described how he had stuck with the Amiga platform until 1999 and that even now he still remembers the platform fondly. Although, Jet Thunder won't be in beta until 2005 and technical problems may prevent a conversion, Steven Dobbs with some help may bring this jet combat simulator to the AmigaOne."

Read more for more information.


Jet Thunder is a project to create a realistic flight simulator based on the air war in the South Atlantic, in 1982 - the Falklands/Malvinas conflict. The team behind the game are military aviation enthusiasts, who have spent nearly two years designing this jet combat simulator to be as realistic as possible. The project's co-founder and main programmer, Steven Dobbs has revealed in an on-line forum that he is wondering whether Jet Thunder could be ported to the AmigaOne.

Jet Thunder will feature a range of single missions, based on historical missions, and even multiplayer modes such as dogfight room, cooperative, and online-campaign. There is also a complex Air-Sea-Battle campaign system in which a commanding AI will give orders to naval, air and ground AI units based in the current tactical situation, the player will fly in an environment that may change unpredictably, so the outcome of the campaign can be different.

Check out the Amigaflame site for more Information and pictures.

This is exactly what we need, a flightsim in full 3d and with lovely gfx.

Good looking game, but there are 2 possible stumbling blocks:

1. The game isn't itself yet finished, so when would the developers have time to start and complete a port?

2. The required functions of AmigaOS like WarpNOVA etc are not yet implemented, making (I assume) a port extremely difficult to start.

I think all he is looking for at the moment is SDL and OpenGL (Mesa) to do the port. Other than that, the Amiga version could parallel the others. That would be a nice change.

whelsguy: whats warpnova ?

anyway i doubt that anyone would make 3-4 versions at the same time , the normal way of making something is to make the main version first and then after thats done do the porting (so there is still time to finish w3d etc IMHO).

As for SDL with Hw render, thats in work atm as far as i know. (i should know )

btw its called WARP3D and the new w3d will be called NOVA not warpnova.

cheers

Looks good. But does AOS4 GFX drivers can do these shading/texture things? I know WARPNOVA will, but it's still a long way there.

What about SNAP GFX system?

Try the link on amigaflame that goes to projects homepage.

Downloaded an AVI file from there, looks great. Even the cockpit is lightsourced.
