Doesn't work for me; all I see is a crosshair on a white screen...  Sad

I have the same problem. I just have some crappy intel integrated graphics...

thanks the plays and positive feedback. its great for us to hear that some of you out there are enjoying this Smiley

the newest version is pretty much how the game should be for our entry. the crashing is fixed ( we think ) and it plays pretty okay.

not sure what to do about the graphics problems on older/non-accelerated hardware, i guess pixel mode is causing some problems. you see, the game doesn't translate too well outside of pixel mode, so... Sad


 Well, hello there!

This is amazingly awesome. Love the smoothness of movement. A radar or at least some arrows pointing towards enemies would be super-helpful though!

cheers! we worked so goddamn hard on this thing with little sleep for many nights, its wonderful to hear appreciation for it  Beg

now there was actually a minimap/radar thing in at a point, but then we decided to remove it... and then we added squad icons... and that was that. Concerned

but on the bright side, I just uploaded an update to box.net that adds 1280x1024 and 1280x960 fullscreen/windowed modes. hooray.

Is that software rendering or just cleverly tuned-down OpenGL/DirectX made to look like circa 1995 software rendering?

Descent is from 1995 and looks way better O_o

anyway we got a winner, i cannot wait to play it

Hmmm... I really wanted to try this one out, but I'm sorry to say I can't seem to play it. It starts up, but it takes about 5 minutes for the starting menu to even come up, and then once I'm in-game, the image only updates at around 5 minute increments, and then it takes so long to quit, I have to terminate the program manually. My computer's just like, two years old now or so, but I hardly ever have any trouble playing games on it. Usually the only programs I have trouble running are really old.

But anyway, it looks like you really put a lot of effort into it, and those that have been able to play it seem to really like it, so good job anyway. Smiley I'd love to see a video of it at some point.

Ah, thanks for the fullscreen modes!  I quite like this,. the presentation is smashing, super low-fi pixels and great sounds with ominus music,. is there any way to win, or do they just keep coming missile command style? Is sorta similar to what I did,. great minds eh.  . .

nice work!

man, this is fucking great. Tears of Joy

I just have one request. inverted mouse. please? even a config value or function key would be fine as i understand the BS behind gui changes and all that. Honestly, i can't play it too long or it'll screw me up... and I MUST play this for too long.

@KniteBlargh: that's strange, most recent hardware should be able to run this game... it's just the pixel mode functionality that gives machines problems, something I'm reluctant to remove... I'm curious as to what video card you have? anyways,



@jph wacheski: cheers Smiley, they do just keep coming at you in larger and larger numbers, a decent enough mechanic and one we had time to do... and dropships sure are a great ( lazy? ) way to make practical use of your assets.  Wink

@aeiowu: thank you for your interest in this Smiley.  the newest version has inverted mouse, just hit "i" to toggle it. it also has some additional bug fixes, one being the nifty looking and useful to gameplay surface beam effect which was working then broken on release  Tired

ATI Radeon XPress 200 Series. Nothing fancy, that's for sure, but I usually don't have issues like this. Shrug

Anyway, what I saw in the video looked awesome!

Same, lags like it's Crysis. Got an Nvidia GeForce FX 5200 In this one. I'll try it on my Laptop later. It's much, much beefier.

i've taken a few stabs at the drawcode and uploaded it to box.

mostly just taking shots in the dark here in hope that is not an issue of incompatibility but one of me doing something horribly wrong  Crazy

GLIntercept pooped out 2 lines of matrix errors:
GL ERROR - Function glPopMatrix() generated error
GL_STACK_UNDERFLOW.
maybe that's where the strange behavior comes from. here, the programs starts, a window's showing up, but without any border, it's just freezing an area of the screen, and i hear some high frequency noises, typically coming form graphics card (or something). also, the program's running at max cpu usage... 30 seconds or so later the title screen shows up, now hearing the hissing noises again. still a frozen screen though. hmm.

nope, but it's still the same.
are you using rectangular textures for the nice low-fi look? . just because i got once also heavy lag using them... *wildly guessing*

I love it! Great art style, great audio, and it's really fun blasting away. I like the sense of gradually getting overwhelmed as you care less and less about the cities and more about just staying alive.

Interestingly, it feels like you're straddling a tech and design middle ground between Defender and Body Harvest - definitely a good place to be.
