ANG : spacial navigation micro-game
Navigate in space, pursuite some star and use planet gravity to navigate.
In developpement, Working, but missing menu, setup, level choice ....
Free to use, modify and distribute.
In net directory, a ang game, version multi-player on local network, use Multicast (so work only on LAN).
The game : same as ang, but all players must collaborate for destroy a maximum of stars.
For checking multicast working, and timings on your host/network :
angm_net_test # can be run multiple in same host and/or on distinct host
On my host, I get
- 23 ms between application on same host
- 30 ms between application on distinct host, same LAN
- auto discovery of player, first player present is the 'master'
- Send master current planet/star configuration to new players
- Player position/speed/accelerations are replicates on each other players
- Star destructions are replicates
- Keyboard textual input are sending/display on all other player
- Multicast for winxp, win 7 ok, withe 1.3p362, (Linux to be checked)
- start/end/restart game
- introduction, help
- transmition of game parameter to all (nb star, coefs...), current version need to be exactly identique for each gamer
- display list of current players, with gamer name
Demo of gosu Raster file came directly from these. Code is remasterised a lot
Newton law ( F=K.M.m/Dist**2 ) give a gameplay too reactive, so I use my own gravity version :) Linear low attraction : ( F=K.M.m/Dist ) give a gameplay too smoth.
so i used : F=max( Newton law, Linear law), this give realism when planet is closed, smooth mouvement when spaceship is far away of all planet.
