Re: HGF updated

Looks like you're using some kind of manual throttle in the game loop in HGFgame:run(). For the best performance you should leave this to Flip() which will automatically synchronize with the monitor's vertical refresh, i.e. it will wait for the vblank and then refresh automatically. I am using fixe...

Sure, here you are.

It's using my new framework. Could you let me know how it performs on MorphOS?

HGF updated

Hi all, I just re-wrote most of my Hollywood Game Framework. It's now more modular and uses OOP for purposes where it matters. I dare to say, it's the easiest way to program hardware accelerated double buffered games in Hollywood. Currently supported features: - easy game loop handling (Delta timing...

Bitmap font support files

Hi all, I have added initial support for AngelCode.com's Bitmap Font Generator output data files into my simple game framework. So now it's really easy to achieve hardware accelerated drawing for games using GL Galore. All it takes is just three lines of code and output files from Bitmap Font Genera...

Re: Help needed in finding a bug in my path finding code.

I found the bug. No wonder I had trouble finding it, I had misunderstood how Hollywood works. Good, that you got it figured out! I would still recommend using some kind of a tree structure to store the game map data as network of nodes for Risk style game. I wrote you a little example. It also serv...

Re: Help needed in finding a bug in my path finding code.

Test this Windows demo written in PL/I. Instructions: Program will first ask you to insert links to city nodes. You must use the format provided in example or else you will get a conversion condition as it uses list-directed I/O. example: 'Finland' 600 'Sweden' or 'Finland', 600, 'Sweden' After you ...

TexOut() not supported with GL Galore?

I have been adding GL Galore support for my platformer and noticed TextOut() call kills the program.

Otherwise, I am liking it and get constant nice frame rate with my program.
