3D construction kit
« en: Octubre 14, 2021, 16:40:33 »
Han hecho un port, de la versión de C64 me parece. En realidad no se nada de este programa, parece interesante. He probado algo de lo que han colgado en el emulador en plus4world y me parece que va demasiado lento. Probablemente hubiera funcionado bien en la SuperCPU.

Bieno

Creating a game with the Plus/4 version of 3D Construction Kit has always been difficult due to the various bugs sadly diffused into the whole suite. Freescaped brings together four Freescape games from C64, just to see how the Plus/4 3DCK compiler behaves if some code is added to overcome the eventual problems raising up. Once the KIT-DATA of a certain game has been candidated to be compiled, the coding fight against all the strange flaws begins, then it's time to make it NTSC compatible, to convert the color palette room by room, to modify the bitmap border in order to handle a 2nd fixed color's limitations, to convert eventual ingame music both on SID and FRQ converter, and possible any others.

The four chosen games: the original 3D Construction Kit Demogame distributed with the original kit and released as alone runnable game on Plus/4, now with the right border graphics and labels; "A Chance In Hell" by Steven Flanagan, a very busy game for the Freescape engine mainly designed for the emulation, with music by Richard Bayliss; "Cyborg 2900" by Marcel Smuz, with its long and elaborate prologue in a cinematic fashion; "Escape From Zaphod" created by by Richard Bayliss (again).

Freescaped by Luca/FIRE: four easy games to test 3D Construction Kit Plus/4. With heartfelt thanks to www.3dconstructionkit.co.uk by Stuart Wilson, the homepage whose work of preserving these and other games will never be recognized as much as it should.
