I thought that 3 weeks was just enough time really. On a two month deadline, people will probably still wish they had a few more days! The two tiered idea sounds good, but would a lot of people be tempted to drop out after the first date if they thought they had no chance for the extended? Btw i hop...

@lachie, it funny you mention complaints about entries here's a list of dropped things from mine: * Saving the hi-score table * Picking up dropped drones * Level selector * Time bonus * Random gift being dropped by another saucer * In game instructions Most were dropped due to time, although two wee...

@vdecampo, thanks for the reminder about fmod.dll, i did not think to included it!

I had a quick go on your game, it's very good! one thing i did think was that i would be good if you could use WASD to fire in a direction different to where your are moving, kinda like Ryans entry...

Hi Ryan, cool game! I also get a solid 99 fps. Seems like the perfect game for an dual stick controller!

Still got much to do on my entry...

Oops, i'll fix that any key prob at some point!

There's only one level so far so it just exits at the end (hope it not proper crashing..), the source has clues to what i hope to add on the next level or two, borrowing bits from Asteroids and Thrust... :)

aleofjax, just had a go at your game again. now runs at a much better speed! I have noticed it crashing though when i try and deliver a jellyfish to the ufo, it brings up a windows app error message. That said, the crashing could be down to me, as i am trying out the game discretely(work) i am recom...

Wow, didn't expect const/define replies! I know when to use what, like i said i just didn't realise FB actually supported #defines and have not got around to changing things over.

Just a quick message, i've updated my download here: http://ssjx.co.uk/windows/invaders.php Source is now included. The source is not very tidy yet and has some odd bits (i didn't realise you could use #define in FB so have been using const for example..) but it may be useful to someone. Also there ...

Ah.. I converted the bitmap to a font but am still using draw string to display it! Do i need to change this? I think as I was not using the system font it did not occur to me that this may be a problem.

Fairly straight forward to remedy anyway.

Hi aleofjax, i just had a quick go on your game. It seems very cool but it does seem to run very very fast, the purple jellyfish seems to bounce around wildly!

I'm just glad there are 2 more weekends, because i doubt i will be able to do anything to my entry in the week due to work...

I'm tempted to upload the source to mine now on the basis that if there is anything that breaks a rule, hopefully someone will say and i can fix it!

The version number can be ignored, added due to habit i think! I've just this minute updated the download, the ending after 1 drone was something i put it to test, i was getting fed up of collecting 20 to sort out the ending!. I did include a mid air-pickup but it wasn't working quite right (as the ...
