I blew the sprite up 4 times its original size and manually smoothed it out a bit, then coded its actor definition. Since there's only one projectile coded in for now, I just gave it that one for the time being, but it'll get a custom one later on. Also, the range is too great for the player to be able to stab it, so it's gonna need the firewand or bombs to kill now.

When testing it, one of them got caught in the crossfire, so they started shooting at each other instead of the player. Oh, and they also started toasting the Slimes. :)

The normally-sized one wasn't quite large enough so I gave him a 2X scale in the code. Now he looks positively menacing... and he has his Bloonball attack. :)



One interesting effect of this right now is that you can use the Slimes as a "shield"... the Bloonball will hit them if they're in the line of fire. This doesn't match the original behavior, so I'll likely tweak some parameters here and there to make it work as par the original.

And with that... I'm gonna put this down for a bit... it's time to get back to PCE coding. :)

Absolutely gorgeous! The fact that you already implemented seabloon's attack makes me smile .

Every screen of the original game is represented by a monster-blocked segment of the map, so enemies can only exist in the "screen" they originally existed on in the real thing... they can never leave the area they're intended to be in. Here's the partially finished map layout for the first sphere that shows what I mean:



The purple lines indicate the "screen" boundaries... they block monsters as well as sounds, so battle sounds can only be heard within the confines of the segment the player is in (for monsters that also activate on sound rather than sight alone). The green lines are horizon lines... that gives the appearance of the infinite sea. The solid white lines are player and monster blocking lines, but since I tweaked the PlayerPawn actor in preparation for the Rainbow Drop, I can remove the player blocking portion since now the player cannot cross lines that link to sectors with more than 32 units of difference in height.

I'd like to see it using the original low-res graphics as textures.

This is really cool! I always wondered what some of my favorite TG16 games would look like in 3D.

Thanks for sharing!

That might look horrible... :lol:

This is what happens when you use unmodified sprites...



...kinda yuck. :lol:

Would resizing them to a higher resolution (without interpolation) work?

I don't know if ROVER has worked on this, but I, too, am curious about any further developments. EVEN IF IT WERE SIMPLY A GHOSTCLOTH or a SNAKID populating a fitting environment...

I haven't worked on this for some time... other things have priority, and SLADE3 stopped working on my system anyway so even if I wanted to work on it, I'd have to find another pwad editor.
