software OS4   software OS4 : Word Me Up XXL 1.51 available on AmigaOS4.
   posted by Glames on 20-Dec-2011 23:23:54 (1934 reads)
The update 1.51 of Word Me Up XXL is now available for AmigaOS 4 enabled computers.

Many new features and optimizations have been brought into the update 1.51, notably a game 30% faster and for the first time for an Amiga game, the management of touch screens. The game is now also available for Windows computers. The MorphOS release will be out in a few weeks. Then, Linux (x86) and MacOS (x86) releases are planned.



New features:
- The game is 30% faster.
- The game is playable with fingers if you have a touch screen.
- New launch menu that makes it easy to reach different parts of Word Me Up
XXL (readme, game, website, ...). All of these parts are translated in the
11 languages of the game.
- Game is more friendly: help on each screen, for every level, tutorial...
- New transition effects between screens.
- New users management: more intuitive, allows to 12 users to play and save
their games (instead of 6 previously).
- Two new characters available: Lisa and Miss Shen.
- Four new levels (training), so 64 levels available in full version.
- Graphical art enhancements.
- In-game animations (when you loose a life, money, ...).
- You can choose sound effects without music.
- Fading when music changes.
- 27 avatars included.
- And much more...

This update is free for all people that have already bought the game. Others can buy the game online. Until December 2011, the 25th, the game is 10% off!


Don't forget to register your copy to get updates if you don't buy game via our webshop. And always send us you new e-mail if it's updated.

You can dowload a free updated demo containing 4 of the 60 game levels (here).

With WordMeUp XXL, take fun!

Just tried the demo on my sam44ep 667MHz system and sadly it far to slow to be playable

If this is a speed improved version I dread to think how slow it was before each screen fade take 10 - 15 seconds and I got a recoverable error when I tried to exit the game buy pressing Escape when I got fed up of the slow screen fades, so all in all sadly I will need to give this game a fail for now.

I've tried again the demo here without any problem.
Could you send me the gream reaper log to me? And give me details about the actions you do? Please use boing.attitude[at]online.fr

Thank you.

I guess you speak about transition effects between screens. The game itself is 30% faster (I mean when you collect the letters). The FPS is displayed at end of each level. What is it for you?

Thank you.

Well, lots of changes :)

Thank you.

Yep it's slow on transition effects but also in all the step before playing, then the game in general is ok, it's faster enough as previews versions

@samo79,

Ok. Thank you for details.
Transitions effects here are not too slow.
But I'll try to improve them in the future.

@all,

After further investigations with Sicky...

The Gream reaper is due to AHI or to the sound driver. If I remember well, the Audio driver on the Sam 460 is still in early beta status.

This is a file to unlha and copy to "texte" subdirectory of the game:
http://glames.free.fr/products/wordmeupxxl/wmupxxl_prefs.lha
You'll use the game without sound effects nor musics.

Once a final sound driver will be released, we'll see how it works with WMUP XXL.

Enjoy!
