MM got his damn netcode working. Hallelujah!

|July 7th 2009|
I’ve been working on the netcode for the last few days without internet connection. It is amazing how much work you can do without the devil. ;D

|July 13th 2009|
upgrading the Netcode
I need to test it in real conditions. I think I might release a little test version publicly soon.
|July 20th 2009|
after rewriting the part of his network (jep, again) MM write a wonderful article:
I’m a genius
I got angry at the physics code for being limited. So what I did is make Box2D (Box2D=LDTestEngine - lil remark) work with tiles collision. This means that the game is not limited now to some memory issues. Infinite maps are reality now in the Link-Dead engine. I am not using them cause they are loaded into memory (for fast loading times). I can make them load from hard drive and that would allow for gigantic maps. But I’m not doing that cause there will be a slight loading hick-up; about 100ms. Doesn’t seem like much but in a multiplayer game that is a matter of life and death.
I tested a map 15 screens by 15 screens large and it generates and loads in about 15 seconds. This is a really good score even before optimizations.

I’m really proud of myself for doing this. I want to thanks the lack of internet for pushing me to do this.
(wow [retard])

"I took a couple days off, been coding non-stop for more than a month." -thats unreal

...Job is going really good. The sleepy crisis is over and I’ve done a ton of work. Maps are now made in a Paint program.Read this? Read again. NO MORE map editors. Maps in paint. Fantastic...
Believe it or not...

Michal made ladders climbing in LD and said to get ready for the test release.

"Oh! wait! i need to fix some bugs!"  :| goddamnit...

"To play with real people:
Download and install Hamachi(
Create an account or whatever it tells you to do. When you’re ready, in Hamachi click “Join an existing network…”.
Fill in the details:
Network name: link-dead
Password: funnybunny  

In the network, there should hopefully be other players. You can chat with them (click on link-dead for channel chat), setup your server or join their servers.

To start a server:Press escape. Select Game/Start Server. When it loads: Select Game/Join Localhost

To join someones server press Game/Join Address. Change the IP:Port to the players IP. Default port is 50008.

That’s all. I hope it works.

Oh yes and the download link! Grab it here:

Please report if it crashes. Tell me when exactly in the game it happens, a screenshot will help.
The framerate won’t go above 30 fps, it is fixed, not slow. If it drops below 30 then tell me and mention what hardware you have."

I need to leave bot paths now for more contemplation. I’m changing focus to integrating the old effects for maps - lighting and fog.finally! effects! yay

|September 20th, 2009|
Wonderful graphical update: Dust processor. It generates dust & smoke (fog lighting and some othr effects too) without any lag, as MM said.
teh video is here:

YAY! Looks like MM did his homework on 'prince of persia' :)
LD looks promising, but will it reach the forecasted Best Game Ever Made? Will see.

I sure hope this turns out better than Crimson Glory.
