Hellor everybody Smiley. Long time no see. A friend came over yesterday and he talked about some worm game and then I remembered Liero and LOSP. So we played all night, so fun. Can't beleave I forgot about this feeling. I searched the web for news and found OpenLieroX_0.57_beta4.wi n32 (released 2 days ago) and vermes-0.9c. Any more news? GU doesnt have Liero anymore so where is everyone?

googled:

http://vermes.dubdot.com/
it's a gusanos fork.

quote from the site:
Quote
Why fork Gusanos?

In a single word: liberty.

The main reason for Vermes' existance is the use of non-free libraries in Gusanos. Vermes aims to be a completely open and free Liero clone. There are philosophical and esoteric reasons for this, and more practical ones. Philosophically, it's nice to be in control of the software you use. Practically, removing proprietary dependencies means Vermes can be integrated into free software projects, like operating system repositories.

There are also a number of smaller reasons for the fork. A borked scons build system, unfriendly CVS, hard-to-get source releases, and inactive development. At the time Gusanos was forked, there hadn't been a release in a year. Furthermore, the developers had decided to abandon the code base, to redevelop 1.0 from scratch. Vermes decided to avoid Joel Spolsky's idea of a strategic mistake.

That's not to say anything bad about Basra and Gliptic. They've put a lot of work into this game. In fact, for now, 99% of the code in Vermes was written by them. That figure will drop away as we work on the code, but their original work got us here.

Oki, could one have more info? Smiley


Any plans to make OpenLiero work on a s60 mobile? 240x320
Maybe mp with Bluetooth, would be soo cool hehe.



Gliptic, hows school? Finished it? Got a job now?

Me, I got so addicted to Civilization 4 that I almost have not played any other game for 2 years heh.
 I started studing again, in Kista SU/KTH after last summer, game development. Now a course in mobile aplications.

Not quite finished with school yet Tongue. Likely will be after this semester though.

I have no plans to port OpenLiero myself, but it should not be terribly hard to do assuming there's a C++ compiler available. I expect it would run on something like that, at least with reduced particle limits. I don't know about filesystems, maybe one has to extract the information from Liero.exe etc. and store it in some other way in order to read them. Don't know much about mobile systems :O.
