As most people are keeping their games back at the moment to enter them in the competition, I thought it might be a good time to post mine, being that they don’t really fit into the competition rules anyway.
I’ve made Pool (15 ball & 10 ball), Snooker & Billiards. There are 2 versions of each. The first versions are the ones I made for my computer(2Ghz, P4, 256Ram, 64Nvidia graphics),on the second versions I made the controls a little faster, hopefully so they will play on computers that are like me, not quite as fast! I’ve tried the faster ones on my wife’s computer(1Ghz, 384Ram, 32Nvidia graphics) and they play a little too fast on it, so I’m hoping they will be OK for a larger range.
The games with fewer balls will obviously play faster as the poly count is quite high to make the balls look more realistic. They clock between 18 & 29 frames a second on my system(Snooker being the slowest). Because of the difficulty with collision detection I’ve tried using motion actuators and ipos to move the cue but can’t decide which I like the best. There seems to be pros and cons for each.
If some of you have the time, perhaps you could check them out and let me know where you think they could be improved.
They’re all in .exe format at present so that friends and family can use them. If anyone is interested I can upload the blends later. I’m about upto my limit at the moment on this server.
