First post and first game here on TIGSource.
After seeing the great cam-shots from dariusk (found here: http://forums.tigsource.com/index.php?topic=8970.45), I just had to try to create something alike!


Download

I have used the following assets in the project:
oryx - Characters/Monsters and items (http://forums.tigsource.com/index.php?topic=8970.0).
feeblethemighty - The SFRX sound pack (http://forums.tigsource.com/index.php?topic=8963.0).
Cosmic Fool - 4x4 font (http://forums.tigsource.com/index.php?topic=8780.0).

Thank you all! I also wanted to thank Sos for creating the Assembleech tool, without that I wouldn't have found dariusk's camshots and of course dariusk for the great camshots.

The game is just a simple shooter with waves of monsters trying to get to the left side of the screen. It is mostly created to try out the led-effects, so don't expect great gameplay. Hell, also don't expect a title-screen or menu or something. I can't say the led-effect is fully the way I wanted, since the 'uber-bright' leds are not yet the way I wanted (see the camshots of dariusk and you'll know what I mean), but all-in-all I'm quite happy with it.

Technical info: I've used C# with the Tao Framework. I've never used Tao before, so I wanted to try it out, this project seemed like a nice way of doing that.
The leds in the game are rendered once when the game starts. It uses OpenGL shaders, so you need relatively 'new' hardware/drivers.

EDIT: Since there is some trouble using OpenGL shaders, I've added a version that uses a pre-rendered led.png, so that the led texture doesn't have to be rendered realtime. This version should also work for machines supporting OpenGL 1.5.

Miyamoto never had to wait for someone to make a game based on his Meggy art for publicity like this.  Tongue

Additional information: Could not load shader:Fragment shader failed to compile with the following errors:
ERROR: 0:5: '{' : syntax error parse error
ERROR: 1 compilation errors.  No code generated.

Crashes when I first run. Got this message when debugged the exe. Some kinda shader problem. I've never had any trouble running gl games before.

Hmm, I haven't seen that one before. I have seen it crash before on computers with not so great hardware/opengl support, but I don't know if that resulted in the same error (it seems like a strange one). I'll test it here some more.

This game looks super snazzy! Are you familiar with this error/a fix for it?

It crashes for me too. What a shame, I really wanted to try this.

I've added a separate version (http://dl.dropbox.com/u/183064/LedsGetShooting_WOFGLF.zip). This one doesn't use shaders and it should work for you now.

Yes, the game was pretty short, so I cranked up the difficulty to make it a bit more interesting. It is very doable, but you'll have to use your grenades very efficiently.

I guess it doesn't need to be any longer to demonstrate what's cool about it. It's really quite sweet, and drew the attention of a passer by just a minute ago. Awesome work!

Thanks for the report. I hope the issue is fixed in the just uploaded (recommended) version. Also added some little tweaks in this version with a better win led-effect and better error reporting (if it still crashes, check the Exception.txt file).

Tried it. It was fairly enjoyable, though it does get a bit repetitive. I love the graphical effect you created. Awesome stuff.

Liked: The visuals are great. I especially liked the blood splatter.

Disliked: The game space is to confined. I'd have liked more room to manoeuvre. At one point I went completely off the bottom of the screen.

Conclusion: Good little time waster.

Beautiful. I especially like the geometry wars styled background kaboom effect. I think I speak for everyone when I say: make it moar.
