Welcome to my new gameproject.
the core is based on my "old" lucy/in_grid gameengine, which was transformed to "parasite engine" during developement.
features: maps of nearly any size, using streaming for graphics and sound.
cachesystem for maps.
progressbar for level/map loading.
any resolution is supported. you do not need to select a resolution, every resolution will work.
nearly unlimited ammount of objects (sound/graphics)
256/512 MB 3D graphicsaccelerator (no onboard solutions)
50MB free space on harddrive/usbstick or any suitable datastorage.
operating systems: windows xp sp3 or newer, 32Bit and 64 Bit versions.
you may encounter the message...application does not response if you use win 7/vista. please wait the view seconds the engine needs to startup for the first time.
if you want to use joypad, connect it to the computersystem and start the game.
if you connect the joypad later/during game it will not be used. you will have to quit the game and (re)connect the joypad and (re)start the game.
how to install:
unzip the archive.
execute the appxxxxxxx (xxx = versionsinfo)
the program writes some logdatas in core\usr\ and core\cache\
so make sure it is possible data storage/directory has writepermission.
if you do not want writepermission for an unknown app it will work fine without this feature, but you may encounter problems:
no logdata will be written to logfile if engine detects problems, or engine quits on fatal errror without loginfo.
you will not benefit from the "cachingsystem":
if cache is used you can enter and leave maps like in most open world games, you will find the last map as you have leaved it. if you do not use the cache you will start
at the level startpoint like a new game has been started.
short game manual:
you are one of the last or maybe the last human alive. zombies, parsites attack you.
the spit on to the floor and virus will attack you, so kill the zombies to keep you alive....
to start game move your playercharcter in new game/continue/exit direction, you will be promted to confirm your choice.
if you select continue and there is no data, you will start with the first map.
if there is data and you select new game you will start with the last map like you have chosen continue....this will be fixed in one of the next releases.
to control the playercharacter use cursor on keyboard or digicross if you use joypad.
select on joypad [p] on keybard switches to pause mode.
use [space] on keyboard, or [a] on joypad to attack the enemy.
move your playercharacter over goodies to collect them.
[LEFT][ALT]+[ESC] quits without feedback.
please notice: this software is in early developement status. there is no warranty. there where no problems during tests. but please take care: do NOT change entries you may find in skripts.
