Finally I’ve ported it away from XNA to OpenGL, still got the (almost) same lousy controls, for your pleasure. Still needs .Net 2.0 to be installed though, but should be compatible with Mono, and thus playable on Linux. If someone like to try to compile it on Linux, contact me. Some things have been tweaked and added. But the game play is the same. Added ugly clouds for better sense of height movement. Updated the physics lib to the newest version.
Arrows: (over) steer
Z: Claw claw claw!
Space: Reset heli position
R: Reset level
N: Next level

A helicopter physics game, made with XNA 2.0 beta.
You will need a pile of shit to get this to work, here it is:
- .Net 2.0 SP1 (we are currently uncertain if it ships with Vista)
- XNA runtime 2.0
I’ve had ppl not being able to run the game anyways, Im looking into the problem. Pls tell me if it works for you.
Anyways I hurried with the levels, Yay it was fun to make them I hope to release a map pack soon. Unfortunaly the editor is built within director, so I will have to work on it a bit to enable the community to build their own maps, unless you got director. All sound was made with DrPetters godlike sound effect app, sfxr. Kudos to him!
Game goals: make the red box be within the red rectangle for 3 seconds to go to next level.
Controls: (Xbox360 controller should work, not tested, buttons? test them!)
Arrows <- -> Steer
Z – Open/Close the CLAW!
X- Turbo (For making panic manouvres)
R – Reset level (Yeah this key you will know by heart)
N – n00b?

Farseer physics lib woun’t play nice with my polygon collision meshes. I think I will have to redo them as primitives instead. Thus changing the chain-claw thing I had in mind, and perhaps make heli bowling? Man, I made my dev pipeline so awesome! Created paths in photoshop to define the collision mesh. Read the ai file with the object, all was swell.
Those pins just fall by them selvs, thats an easy win. Anyhow, Im off to bed, tomorrow I will be away a few hours on dinner. Yeah, I’ll bring my laptop!
Camera and sidescrolling implemented (not wrapping yet though)
Oh and I made a tripod, a bit small. Fixed the controls a bit by cheating. turning left n right adds forces in those directions not only changes the upforce. Up n down still needs tweeking.
The physics seems a bit unstable, (stuff act strange) I’m not sure my idea with chaingrapplings will work, perhaps I should revise the idea a bit.
Today, after incitement by a CHAIN letter, a horde of villagers, armed with CHAINs, CHAIN guns, and CHAINsaws, attacked a shopping district in Washington DC, having crossed the CHAIN bridge. There our hero, a CHAIN smoker, sat nursing his drink at a coffee CHAIN. Killing the first villager to disturb his drinking, he took up the dead man’s CHAIN and proceed to battle the forces of evil. Little did he know that the same evil mastermind that sent the CHAIN letter also equipped his pawns with chemical tanks that would set off a CHAIN reaction when combined.
