Re: BOTF 2

Although the mini map ofc is quite useful for orientation on the map, you cannot use it to scroll around unfortunately. Best feature though in my opinion is the new system governor in experimental beta version. It keeps your structures manned properly with respect to current build times and the pref...

Re: MPR++ v0.2.6c open for alpha testing

disabling vids has helped, thanks! Explosions are there now too.

whenever you feel like implementing a new one, please reduce the effectivity of the evade order ;)

Re: MPR++ v0.2.6c open for alpha testing

tested it and it works fine on my i5 notebook. My Lenovo Thinkpad though strikes. After selecting my empire and watching the empire-video it crashes without any further ado. Interestingly enough, loading a tutorial savegame works.. The few fights I played were good, nice crispy models. Background sk...

Re: MPR++ v0.2.6c open for alpha testing

Hey Flocke,

can I get the links too just for testing it out on my 2 win7 notebooks? Really interested to see how it works.

Re: BOTF 2

thanks! yes there is a mini map on galaxy map screen which can be toggled on and off in bote.ini or in-game settings menu. Actually the mini map came with Alpha5 already (I had to look that one up in the changelog myself ;)). From what I've seen, your mpr++ recoding project makes good progress as we...

Re: BOTF 2

I thought I give an update on the progress of BotE so far. We reached Alpha 7 which can be downloaded here: http://www.heise.de/download/birth-of-the-empires.html . Despite the download page being german the game is in english. We do not have an english download mirror right now after the old one fr...

Re: BOTF 2

do you mean getting to run BotE on your mac or Botf?

if bote, then this site tells you how to do it: http://forums.wesnoth.org/viewtopic.php ... 0&start=30

basically you need to use winetricks and download the gdiplus files missing in regular mac os.

Re: BOTF 2

seems like you've made good progress, well done Flocke.

the FreeOrion guys also have an Ogre implementation, I believe for a year or so they are coding at it so far, so maybe if you don't already know about it, seeing through their work might help a bit.

Re: BOTF 2

I'm sure they will. Eventually my hope is that we can provide a game, which allows for a more or less complete recoding of botf as a mod to bote. that way releases and mods here could speed up their development significantly by using real code instead of hex values. But this is still future talk I g...

Re: BOTF 2

thanks thunderchero. indeed we finished some nice additions for our next release, the Alpha 7 version which will finally have a real start menu with galaxy options and so on. Along with the random events and the space monsters which are nearly done it will get real close to what botf offers except t...

Re: BOTF 2

A german BotE player is making some HD quality videos of the german Star Trek mod of Birth of the Empires (mod done by an avid bote player not belonging to the dev team). That mod even has the Borg in it which are not featured in the original BotE version and has many elements (graphics, sounds, voi...

yes, that's what I care most about here in this thread too ;), so how's it going on the 3D battle front and otherwise, Xordan? Edit: Until then, when he hits back, I have a list of BotE gameplay hints so you get not-so-easily overrun by the enemy AI ;). It starts with the two game controls I already...

gameplay and game control issues like how to establish trade routes and get to know which of all the options and menus you can ignore until late-game, will get explained in Alpha7 with in-game tutorials and tooltips, so no worries, it isn't that much more complex than good old botf, just remember wh...
