Oases - newton64 - 48 Hour Compo Entry
*** IMPORTANT NOTE ***
This game, as mentioned below, has some trouble running on many computers. If you're getting .dll errors, try erasing the msvcr100.dll file I included, and installing the Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 redistributable: http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=5555. That may only work in 50% of cases, but...fingers crossed, right?
*** IMPORTANT NOTE THE SECONDE ***
I've compiled a new version using the Qt library for networking, instead of some random code found on the internet for scanning wireless SSIDs. The new version is available here: http://www.newton64.ca/games/jams/ld22/Oases-v1.1.zip
As mentioned in the README, I'm not sure if this can be considered valid for the competition. The changes were minimal, and in the back end, and the game is functionally identical to the original submission; however, it was done post-deadline. Let me know if it goes against the rules, and I will remove the link.
In any case, Linux version on its way soon.
The game has been tested on Windows 7, but as with any good last-minute entry, it doesn't seem to play nice on anything other than the developer's PC. If the game doesn't run at all, or forces you to quit for not having your wireless card turned on, I apologise. Working on that presently. Do mention in the comments if you've had any errors, and provide things like error messages, and OS version.
Oh, and do play this on a laptop. Like, you pretty much have to. And wear mittens.
