The first beta of Game Slate releases tonight!
Right now the release is going to Architect, Gus and Josh; if you want in drop me at line thom [at] my username [dot] com. You must have a Hydra with T35, Joystick and 2 buttons (3 preferred). Those buttons can be either GHI ButtonModules OR any kind of interrupt button you create yourself.
The purpose of this release is to create additional interest/funding as well as acquire additional programming/development resources.
I’ll post a video of the beta in action tonight as well. For now here’s what the beta has
Create and display Start screen (with background and options)
Create and display dialogs (with color coding & ability to fast-forward dialog)
Create a zone
Add up to 14 rooms per zone
Create unlimited CombinationLocks (demonstrated in example)
Create tiles & tilesets
Character & Sprite animations
3 layer render and collision detection
Enhanced credit screen (now supporting images, better 2 column alignment and colors)[/ol]
Sounds (we’ve send an updated MusicModule driver to GHI; hopefully that will make an upcoming release)
Precompiled games (support exists but not in this release)[/ol]
