Archive for the ‘LD #17 – Islands – 2010’ Category
Goodie. Capture rate: 1frame/minute, night time cut and run at 5fps. Video quality is crap, but eh. Nothing I can do.
Lakes, mines, trees, palm trees, dirt, and sand hooray! The final island size will be approximately 5-10x larger, but I’ve not done so yet because I haven’t made a way to scroll the map. :)
Wish me luck! There’s still no gameplay yet. I hope to begin working on at least some gameplay tonight, finishing it up tomorrow.
(But I love the concept I have going here so much, that I’ll probably spend the week after LD finishing it up to my liking. Networked multiplayer is something I’m thinking about.)
Might’ve gone a bit overambitious…
My little procedural engine can generate 1 island of any size. Only problem is, it likes to hang up when you start making the island size larger ;P I’ve got an idea for a workaround floating in my head, and I’ll try to implement after I have some lunch.
Weapons of choice:
FPC 2.4.0 w/ Lazarus .9.28.3 beta
Anvil Studio (run through GXSCC to make boring midi into 8 bit deliciousness)
Free Audio Editor (because Audacity BSOD’s my computer)
media-convert.com to convert wav to ogg
I’ve got a working title screen, 1 song (24s, loops), and a couple of sound effects (which seem to have issues playing slightly delayed…)
Alternative builds for other operating systems will be created post-compo. I’ll be able to create a linux x86_32 build (and windows x86_32) build, and while there is a Mac in my house, it’s a PPC, so I don’t know how it would build things :/
OK you guys. I don’t know how you did it. I said I wouldn’t, but here it is in it’s beautifully messy glory. Sporting my desktop + eee. I think I’m just going to leave the eee on IRC to not distract myself so much. *Cough*
Well, it all comes down to the theme. There were only 5 or so themes I immediately thought of an idea for, and based upon the theme I will choose a development tool. Generally, for a more complex idea I have, I’ll be going with GM or Unity, and if I can think of a simpler idea I’ll be using Pascal.
Tools of choice:
GM, Unity, Lazarus w/ FPC 2.4.0, Andorra 2D, SDL+SDL_Mixer, GIMP, sfxr, musagi or syntrax or anvil studio
We’ll see. Haven’t done a LD in quite a while, so I’m hoping I can create something interesting this time, no matter how simplistic it may appear.
I’m too lazy to make motivational posters, take pictures of my food and workspace, so you’ll have to live with other people’s.
As for a timelapse, this is a possibility. Ideally I would like to find a timelapse software with 30s-1m increments that saves in PNG, which I have yet to find. Most seem to be BMP/JPG… BMP is horrible for space and JPG for loss of quality.
For creating a movie from the images, someone recommended FFMPEG/Mencoder, but I’m not sure if they can handle PNG files (assuming I can find a program to capture as PNG).
Oh well. I’ve got a day to figure out that setup. I’ve got all of the other tools pretty much set up already.
