ssshhh…I’ll be quiet.
A few major things are’nt implemented, but the game is playable now
(although hard because you can’t kill the ghosts), but I wanted to see
if the list had any feedback that I have’nt considered yet (please
don’t bug me about the speed being tied into the frame rate, it’s at
the top of my todo list). If anyone compiles it on any system besides
linux please let me know how it works for you.
I compiled it under three different platforms:
AMD K6/2-350 MHz
Voodoo3 3000 (AGP) video card
Cyrix 6x86 150+ - 120 MHz
3D Labs Permedia2 (PCI) video card
Intel Pentium3 - 500 MHz
Visual C++ 5.0 professional
NVidia GeForce 256 SDR (AGP) video board.
I might have screwed up the X versions, sorry. Anyway, Linux and Windows ran it
just fine. I had problems with your Makefile under Windows, so I let VC
generate it’s own depedencies and stuff. FreeBSD was a pain to get working,
but after much hacking with the Makefile and stuff, I got it running too. (is
it just me, or does a lot of things seem “broken” under FreeBSD? Oh well,
probably just used to Linux that’s all). Like you said, the game speeds vary
quite a bit from the three machines, but it was nice and playable on my FreeBSD
(cyrix) machine, but don’t even ask what it’s like on my Windows box
If you need any more system specific stuff (like my modified Makefile for
FreeBSD), just let me know. Looks like a pretty cool idea.
Thanks for everyones time.
