README

This is an Another World (Out Of This World in North America)
interpreter codebase. This work is based on:

- Piotr Padkowski's newRaw interpreter which was based on
- Gregory Montoir's reverse engineering of
- Eric Chahi's assembly code.

I cleaned up a lot of the code, removing cryptic hexadecimal notation
with meaninful macros name. I also cleanup a lot of the code so it has a 
C/C++ philosophy instead of an assembly structure.

I also created a Visual Studio 2010 project.

TODO:

Create a MacOS X project.
Add a different rendering path OpenGL support.

Release version: 0.1.1 (May 15 2004)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

About:
------

raw is a re-implementation of the engine used in the game Another World. This 
game, released under the name Out Of This World in non-European countries, was 
written by Eric Chahi at the beginning of the '90s. More information can be 
found here : http://www.mobygames.com/game/sheet/p,2/gameId,564/.

Please be aware that, currently, this implementation may contains bugs and 
non-implemented features that make it impossible to finish the game.

Supported Versions:
-------------------

Currently, only the english PC DOS version is supported ("Out of this World").
