There is a physics demo by Andy Owen in the Files section here at VBGamer. It demonstrates 2D ridged bodies interacting in a real time simulation. The mouse can be use to interact with the bouncing particles to repulse or attract them with varying degrees of influence. The code has very detailed comments as well. Go check it out!

Just wanted to say that we have two new tutorials over at Digital Explosions.

One is for DirectX and DirectDraw, it teaches you how to create the device in a fullscreen window.

The other is a tutorial on Clickable Buttons, the tutorial is not finished, but it explains how to do clickable buttons and has a sample project which includes DirectDraw and DirectInput modules which are useful in game programming.

I will be adding tutorials as well as screen shots of Galactic Wars 2 as the week goes on.

X-Hex up for download

X-Hex is ready for download, so visit the site and download the Full Trial version. Also we are giving away registered copies of X-Hex to individuals who can create an Artificial Intelligence Editor. Full details of how to begin will be up on the site very soon. It is pretty straight forward, you will have access to change the A.I. name, what A.I. type they will most likely resemble(attacker, defender, etc..), how they use weapons, and a couple of more secrets. You will be able to load and modify this information through a raw data file (text file, for easy editing). Also if you buy X-Hex and build an AI editor(that works) we will reimburse you for your initial investment. Good luck, and enjoy !

Dark Realms revealed!


12/29/2002 10:33:44 PM | Posted by: The Hawk | Post a comment
->Website
Dark Realms is an offline tile-based RPG I have been making for a couple months now, it features include a Level Creator with built-in Enemy/Item/Equipment/Skill creators, ability to have different tilesets for every level, a File Editor for those who have angered the bug god and it won't let them open their file for some reason, and a under-heavy-construction-constantly Event Creator (which is the life-blood of Dark Realms)
However, there is a downside to all this... Dark Realms has no animation :p The main reason being I don't have an artist and (as you can see in the screen-shots) my talents are NOT artistic :)
Maybe animation will be added later on, but until I can find an artist Dark Realms is following the traditional RPG like Excelsior and Dark Ages...
In the least check it out plz! lol, Google is taking forever to list my site :p

PS My site is out of date due to my comp's death and not having the correct tools on the one I am working from now, but the links should still work!

I would like to introduce a new game that will be available soon. Written 100% in VB and DirectX. The website is not fully launched yet, and the game not released yet, in the next week. But in the meantime have a look while things progress, and as soon as a demo is available I will let everyone know. I would hope to get a lot of support/testers/feedback from the VB community.

The curse of voodoovb(tm) is gone

Every so often, there is a foul curse in the air that consumes websites. This curse leaves websites dead and links broken, it is a horrible thing to witness. But now the Overmind is dead, Friday the 13th has passed, and I'm running out of story.

VoodooVB is back online. Hopefully it will survive the next ice storm. :-)

The Fallen Dragons - Client Preview


12/14/2002 10:23:12 PM | Posted by: [coax] | Post a comment
->Website
I'm sure nobody has heard of us, but we've been around a while now. Our artist Sekonretsu recently completed our new main interface. I've been working hard on the new engine and as soon as it's done the alpha testing will begin.

For those who don't know, The Fallen Dragons is a text-based online RPG made in VB. It's similar to Realms of Kaos, but we hope to implement many more features. We have some great minds behind our project and we will be starting plan files soon so you can get a peek at what we're doing. We've already written up pages and pages of history, goverments, etc.

Also, if there are any features you would love to have in it, please e-mail me I'm open to all your ideas and this is the best time to let me know.

Files and Articles archive from VBGC


12/14/2002 3:41:24 PM | Posted by: Eric Coleman | Post a comment
Remember VB Gaming Central? All the best bits in one place? Well, Adam Hoult, the webmaster of the now defunct VBGC, has given me access to the website's content. VBGamer is now hosting the old articles and files from VBGC, and they've been reformated to a much harder to read format. j/k.

Some of the articles have appeared in other places, but I've decided to keep them all in one place. As for the files, they are all original zip archives. Some of them might be missing a type library, and some are a bit old, but they're still great resources of programming information. I tested all of the files myself, and they all work. Although one of the files needs to be edited to rename the DirectX interfaces depending on which version of the old DirectX type library you use.

Check the console on the right side of the page. You'll find the links to the Articles and Files sections.
