Software News : Warzone2100 for AmigaOS4 is released
Posted by kas1e on 2010/11/30 17:58:03 (835 reads) News by the same author
Software News

Warzone2100 is opensource version of welknown 3d real-time strategy game. The game was already ported to Morphos some time ago, but aos4 users still can't play it, until now.

For that release we can say thanks to Fab, who help me to fix some problems while i port it.

The video in action (win/fullscreen modes) are here (youtube)

Few screenshots in window mode are here:

Click to see original Image in a new window Click to see original Image in a new window

The versions of that port are the same old as morphos one : its 2.0.8rc1 revision (2-3 years old). I choice it because we already know that its ported to morphos and works fine (so nothing stop to port it), and because the very newer version introduced some stuff which make port a bit harder. Its still possible to port , but just a bit harder and more time consuming (hope to do that later)

That version are fully playable in single-user mode, but have some problems with multiplayer (we do not know if authors fix them in the very latest versions).

Also you will see sometime in shell some fancy errors like "error: file that and that not found" (while files are present). That is just because on time of that version of game, these files was not handled normally, and just say those words. That will not make any problems for game itself, just some window which will spawns after a while and inform you about.

There of course can be some problems, but i test it with all those load/save, window-fullscreen modes, and all looks like works fine. Still, if some problems will occurs we always can fix it , if it will be reported.

By default game running in full-screen mode, and if you want window mode you should change manually in users/default/config file "fullscreen=0" (0 = window , 1 = fullscreen), or run game from the shell with "--window" param.

If you want to change resolution , you also can change that file, or use shell and ask for all the commands by:
Quote:


amiga shell:> warzone2100 --help


Also read the README included in the game directory, that describe all the stuff.

Grab it from os4depot (in upload query for now) and have fun !

You can check on video, cursor are here .. Maybe old SDL for you ? aos41u2 and so on ? But anyway there is bug in SDL_SetCursor function, and i comment out it fully (initially cursor should be red and a bit fancy). After removing bugs is gone, and i have black cursor working.. Dunno why you not have that , but fixing of SDL_SetCursor will be better idea in end ..

Anyone else have problems with cursor ?

Runs really nice here on my Sam and seems like a nice game after playing for 10 minutes or so. Seriously starting to reconsider the plan to get a Wii this Christmas, struggling to find time to play all these recent Amiga releases.

Thanks for the hard work Fab and kas1e!

Well dunno about amiupdate, but anyway, i compiled it statically, so its false alarm about new SDL.

You just not see cursor totally or what ? (as i see, other are play in game already and their cursors are visibly). Or maybe you meant that cursor not mark the enimies ?

Just played 15 mins with it.

Fast and very playable, no cursor problems at all. Great one kas1e, thanx.

Although on WarZone's output there are some .txt files missing, is that normal?

Yep, its normal. It just for this revision of game these files was not handled normally. I will try soon to build more newer version (if not last one, but newer than current one).

Game indeed pretty nice after you understand how to play, and how navigate over the radar, how navigate by units and the other little tricks.

Remind me Napalm and Earth2140

Hi Juan.

Why don't you try it by yourself and share us how fast or how slow it is, so we can make a comparison between different SAMs.

When you run a game, did you have a cursor, by which you can choice "start new game", etc ? If so, then all is works.

In the game itself, cursor will not changes. I.e. it will be not "arrow" or any other mark. Just plain black cursor for all the time.

Did i understand right, that after you run the game, you can't do anything, because you just not see your cursor ? Or you see it, just not understand how to play in the game ?

no you misunderstood, I see the mouse pointer fine through out all the screens in the game BUT it's accuracy is off by a few cm's on all screens i.e iff i want to put at object A in the game then i have to point the mouse pointer about 2 cm's (1 inch) above objectA to activate/hit it.

Hm. I not see any problems like that, but maybe you have setuped some mouse pointer for aos4 ? I.e. not original one ?

Or maybe some WB settings ?

Anyway, i think its because of the SDL_SetCursor commented stuff.

Strange that its only happens for you.

ok maybe I can check the mouse settings when I'm back home tonight and try changing some settings around ??? hey I also just installed that memory patch by m3X for the Sam boards...could that be the cause??

ok I figured it out that when I turned off full screen mode the mouse works fine in window mode...so basically it was a screen resolution problem i think?..anyhow how can i set the full screen to be 1024x768 as the config only has the width field ?

Check for first if your WB have 640x480 screenmode at all. And if so, be sure that is in all the formats (16/32). If you not have it, setup one, and all should be fine. If still not by some reassons, then run game from the shell like that:

amiga shell:> warzone --fullscreen --resolution WIDTHxHEIGHT

(where widthxheigh can be any you wish).

Sorry, but I tested your port in my Sam and it doesn't run perfect, the game has problem showing the textures with the maps and units, because appear squares with pixels instead of the units or terrain. I started the game from Ram Disk for the speed, and the menus etc. work perfectly.

Sounds like old-bad warp3d drivers for you. Are you sure that you have latest os ? Anyway, you can try to ask some help from Samo79, that problems are welknown, and he can explain it for you in italian better.

I have of think that I have the last version of warp3d drivers and the new patch from ACube, the other question that Samo79 will help me in italian, well, help me yes, but not in italian, because I speak spanish and english sometimes bad.
But your porting work for Amiga OS4 are importants, I hope enjoy them with a new future motherboard with speed, when the X1000 is available or the new Sam has a reasonable price, because my current Sam is fantastic to make things with Hollywood or other little things but not to play to recent games.

Ops, i think before that you and samo79 are italians. Anyway, the better think for you for now will be to wait for the new update, where warp3d will be fixed, and not more texture corruption ever on any hardware.
