Software News   Software News : New PacMan05 on OS4Depot
   posted by Jorge on 26-Feb-2006 22:26:44 (1775 reads)
I've uploaded a new version of PacMan05 to OS4Depot (and Aminet).


Version 1.0.6 02/26/2006 -js-
- rewritten Event handling. Uses ablit/abu event handling including native AmigaInput support
- removed LowLevel library emulation (now AIN native)
- fixed keyboard delay (no "event flickering" in keyboard mode)
- keyboard is now always active (in parallel to joystick)
- Joystick supports both, hats and stick
- fullscreen / window mode switch works now (sort of)
- removed external mod plugin (savage mod error)
- now statically linked to clib2/ablit/abu (no shared libs necessary)
- executeable size is down to ~700K (incl. linked in graphics & sound (90%))
- still bugs left. Some stuff needs a complete re-write. But the game is pretty playable.

Known Bugs 02/26/2006
- Colors are not 100% freed at exit (pen0)
- unstable on exit (?) Please report this if possible
- loose joysticks after one run (AIN problem ?). This does not happen always.

Sure, but I was working on my ablit stuff since a while and added a complete new event handling. I was never happy with the low level stuff which was in the game. So, it just came in handy to try that in a real world test. It was pretty easy to hook into the game - and the rest, well, yes, thx for the report. I could fix that, too. (won't be the last, though. I kinda rushed into this release).

But, you know. It all depends on my motivation... so "when it's done".

AmigaOne XE G3/933/VIA/FM801/R200 (fixed),
G3SE/600/Voodoo3/Sil680/RTL8139/SBLive! (noiseless!)
XE/G4 (broken 7450/800)
