thanks for the replies! i didn't expect as much interest in this older game
The newest level editor requires a patch that i haven't really released yet. If you're interested, DM me, or visit this discord: https://discord.gg/tzMr63ZA
. or just DM me on discord.
here's the latest sample i uploaded to youtube. doesn't include the XP menu though, but the menu works fine.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m-I7tafFiQQ
I feel like we talked before? years ago? i'm not sure. The project already has a fully completed 1st hack. here is my playthrough of ithttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MnU5LlA1t-A
It was extremely difficult for most, so i added patches for varying difficulties.
The latest hacking endeavor has seen me create the entire source code, and expand the levels, new enemeies etc, which is still fairly far from released.
Bogaabogaa has created a western themed level, and I have created an urban themed level with large city buildings, roads, etc. And i'm working on level 1, but there's still 7 other levels to work on, new graphics and enemies. It'll likely be a while before it's fully complete and ready to release.
I must admit, i'm not sure how to upload images or videos into this forum...this is my first time here.
A randomizer has certainly crossed my mind. I think it's very doable - i already created an enemy horizontal position 'randomization' as part of my original hack. It would certainly take some logic, but very doable. i'm not if or when i'd get around to this, especially with the expanded hack taking so much time and effort.
I've already investigated changing the jeep speed. it works form moving around on the screen, but when you scroll, it still scrolls one pixel at time due to how the game handle enemy spawning. i haven't looked deep into what it would take to get that to work fully. You'd have to make sure no enemy spawns or new level tile loads where missed..
I've thought about editing the title screen many times, and my original hack released (mentioned above) was called Jackal 2. I think this new one needs a subtitle, like jackal, war march, or something.
haha, the camera is certainly fixable. i don't recall exactly what you were trying to fix though? was it that the camera scrolled late when you were too close to the side of the screen?
