WAR CITY : Finaly done and in open beta !

Postby Garrom » Thu Oct 26, 2017 7:13 pm

After year of code-full days my project is finally done and in open beta. "Open Beta" means "Full of bugs and with unknown minimum requirements". I'm sure it works on my machine but that is all. War City is game based on Battle City (because war is bigger mess than battle).
Game have three game modes :
-1 Player
-2 Players
- Singla Player Survival
I had lot of work with in-game settings. Game supports multiple resolutions but to keep spirit of original game only 3:4, three shadow quality levels, both window and fullscreen. For controlls is used DirectInput what means you can youse almost any device to controll tanks.

Game also have "Modern" mode what make tanks smoothly rotate and give player tanks and base three hit points. In moder mode you can find uniqe powerup "Wrench" what restore hitpoints of tank.

There are two major changes against original game :
1)Enemy drop powerup box where they die, not on random location like on original game.
2) 2nd star powerup does not allow you fire two bullets at once but allows you to fire continuously.

As part of open bata testing i must ask you to report any bug to this thread. And i like to know your system configuration(Ram,Cpu,Gpu etc.) so feel free to respond to this thread with these information and eventualy bugs you found.

Game is free and it will be free forever DOWNLOAD HERE
Game is free but i must eat too so if you want DONATE ME , fell free to do it :D

Worked just fine on my potato PC with an A10-7850k, 8GB of RAM, and Integrated R7 graphics. This is better optimized then PUBG. Anyway I liked it. Didn't find any bugs while I was playing it. If I had any criticism, it would just be the sound the tank makes when it's moving. I can see it working for "retro" mode, but when thinking "modern" it's a bit odd at least for me. Other than that, awesome job!

TheOmikronNomadSoul : Thanks for your spec. Just few more and i will be able to make minimal reqiestment. About moder mode, i must agree with you. Modern mode was created on suggestion of my brother who does not like tanks rotate instantly. This is reason why you have three hit points in moder mode, rotating take time and is harder to dodge attacks.
About sound, I'm not sound artist but I'll try to improve in future.

Hmm... Game needs .Net framework 4.5 and DirectX. I never heard "meno" before... do you mean "mono" ? if yes, then app have no access to own folder. Win XP Sp3 is supported by engine but i don't know if you can have .Net 4.5 on XP.

Hmm. I dug around code and know possible solution. If you have 64 bit system you need BOTH x64 and x32 versions of Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package. If you have 32 bit system you need only 32 bit version of Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package and if you have it already have one, reinstallation may solve your problem. If this does not help you you can reinstall(or install) .Net Framework 4.6 and DirectX aswell.
