Re: GOB is still being updated (sorta starcon meets nethack)

hansolo0: Starting with arbitrary ships sounds an awful lot like a cheat to me. I have noticed that it's very hard to switch ships without a lucky rainbow rift in the very early game... I improved that situation slightly a while ago by allowing the purchase of upgrades immediately after changing shi...

Re: GOB is still being updated (sorta starcon meets nethack)

As a window, it will not go higher than your desktop resolution. Fullscreen, it will go up to whatever your monitor and video card allow. If it's running faster that might be due to a change in the resolution or color depth. Another possibility is that your old version might have been a debugging ve...

Re: GOB is still being updated (sorta starcon meets nethack)

Try "gob.exe -res 320 200 -bpp 8" or somesuch. Or edit client.ini, go down to [Video], and change ScreenWidth & ScreenHeight & BitsPerPixel there.

Re: GOB is still being updated (sorta starcon meets nethack)

The file with the proper Allegro 4.2 dll is up.

Re: GOB is still being updated (sorta starcon meets nethack)

'the devil protects his own' is generally the hardest upgrade to find, though it is available for all ships. I believe in recent versions there are multiple levels of it that can be purchased. It periodically does a small amount of damage to everything hostile in a large area of effect around the pl...

Re: GOB is still being updated (sorta starcon meets nethack)

Doh! The 4/25/11 version was specifically done to add the missing alleg42.dll file, but I guess I must have missed something in the release script that was moving that file. I'll do another release, making damned sure that the allegro 4.2 dll goes in this time. Anyway, I don't think the 4/25/11 has ...

Re: GOB is still being updated (sorta starcon meets nethack)

Latest version is now up on sourceforge:
https://sourceforge.net/projects/gob-tw/

This uses Allegro 4.2.3, and is crashing on exit for me. I may switch to Allegro 4.4 or 5.0 sometime in an attempt to fix that.

Re: GOB is still being updated (sorta starcon meets nethack)

The factor currently holding up the next release is my uncertainty over what I'm doing with Allegro. Older versions were using Allegro 4.0.2 IIRC, I'm currently compiling with Allegro 4.2.something and it (and the allegro example programs) crash sometimes on my computer. I may need to try porting to...

Re: GOB is still being updated (sorta starcon meets nethack)

I'll take a look at getting the documentation more appropriate for a Gob-only version. And at getting the ship panel to look better for upgraded health/battery maximums. A large fraction of shofixti are incapable of self-destructing. Though it's impossible to tell them apart from shofixti who can se...

Re: GOB is still being updated (sorta starcon meets nethack)

g++ 4.3.2 does not like this code. Just to be sure, there's no real hope of a non-windows release of this, is there? Sigh. I spent many hours earlier today struggling with gcc/MinGW 4.5.0, Allegro 4.2.3, and the TW codebase. And it's sort of working. That is, it's quite playable. But when I use the...
