I still haven't tried this on my new computer. Is it video card specific, or just have to have updated drivers for the game engine?

Your wish shall be given.

- When driving into enemies, it either slows them down or they stop entirely.
-Why is it in the bottom right corner?   Or is that just me?
-Some impassible tile errors seen, areas where you should be able to pass, but can't.

-AI can drive through cliffs...

-Shouldn't the Laser GP be shooting that red AI guy in the base?

Simple map error.

Oh, Oh... NEWS!!!

Fire... and debries on every destroyed and damaged building-vech.
The sound bug is still a big bugger.
Enemy is a little bit more intelligent
Fixed the map problems ( look at the 1. image that baikon posted.)
About AI units going through cliffs... i didn't see any problems, prolly sthe script missed a few info's and let him inside, and not letting him out.
When i was playing, i didn't see any map problems.
What else...
added few eden vechicles (of course destroyed, yiu really thought i will give you support on the mission ?!?!?!?! ? ) :P
...
And yes, i think i deserves a "well done" or a "good work Savant" :P :P :P :P :P :P !

*YAWN*... News....

Yet more bugs fixed
Yet more intelligent enemies...
yet more.... um.... better processed map.
Yet more details.
yet more work :P

I added a script, (very easy one) to improve the intelligence of enemies ( thus i am not sure if it works, they are dumb as always)
Damn sound bug, it is still there.
I added cargo truck debries, and more fire sprites....
 :evil laugh: the "Elite" mode of playing is more EVIL than ever...  :Cool:
however, i am  :unsure: will the game work on other machines, few people that downloaded the game couldn't start the game, but i think the problem is the Sound card, or grapchics card. You have to have ATI graphics card.

Any comments?
Anything that you want/don't want in the game, plase feel free to post.

EDIT: I made Wiki page about op2cs Here

PROGRESS

I finnaly discovered, why some games refuse to play on some machines:
Here it goes:

Because when I am programmin the game on my comp. it uses the configuration of my system and stores it into the game to work. However, if i have DirectX 9.0c, and the Chunki-Wungi guy that downloaded the game has directx 8.0 IT WON'T WORK
And the same with drivers and music cards.(sound card.... arrgh i don't remeber the name)

Now, the info about the game:

I have used a script to make that fire don't look the same (The sprite changs the slides at the same time, so they look the same (just their size is not the same))
Just few more days unitl release of version 1.6 (i am still not ready for 2.o :P )
I'l keep you informed.

I'd assume that's just the minimum requirement of the Game Maker program.. Even if you have DirectX 9.0c installed it is still possible to write software that only requires DirectX 8 (you could go back to DirectX 5 and code for it, if you really wanted to). Of course, you wouldn't be able to use newer features (like shaders) in really old DirectX versions.

For the record, it ran fine on my old desktop (nVidia TNT2 PRO). Haven't tried yet with this machine (which contains an nVidia Geforce GO 7400).

Sound support should be more or less universal, so long as the sound driver supports DirectSound (find me a modern sound driver that doesn't?!)

Just few more days unitl release of version 1.6 (i am still not ready for 2.0 )

I totally (again) forgot on it  :heh:

I don't know where to start...
I idled a bit, beacuse i made very one detail to op2cs, except one, the sound bug.
It seems that the computer uses script:

in chance 1 to 20  fires one shot and plays a sound. However, i have to MAKE a script, not a finished script, to fix the problem. As you alredy know the SB was a problem with the begining of the game.
I got some little problems on scripting that, but i think it can be done.

The script should do that the enemy fires, but not making any sound.

OK. and again, i will keep you informed :)
Outpost is B) !

Althrough OP2CS is dead. To be more precise, the source code is gone...

Another Gamemaker based game will be published when it is done.

The next game, which name is still to be dubbed, will be a sequel to OP2CS

That is all the information I can give now. :D
