META TYPE

ENGLISH TRANSLATION BELOW

Après quelques jours de prise de tête, je suis heureux de vous présenter ma première création.

un shoot arcade 2d : Meta Type.


ici: 

pas de power up de la mort qui tue. (même pas un heal)

pas de niveaux. le jeu est infini (ou presque)

spawn des ennemis aléatoire (pour ne pas "trop s'ennuyer")

de la musique

de "petits" jeux de LED

une sauvegarde du high score

et c'est tout..


Edit:

à la demande de Max, le code de mon .ino


                                                                  ENGLISH PART

After a few days of headache . I'm glad to pressent to you my first creation. A 2D arcade shooter: Meta Type.

here we have:

no power up (not even some heal)

no levels (infinite game)

random enemy spawn (so it's less boring)

some music

LED blink

High Score saving

and that's all..


Edit:  Max asked me to share the code. click on the green upper  link  to see it

If you have specific questions about it, just ask me and i'll explain it to you. BUT this is not the way you should write your code. It works, but it is really ugly ;)

don't forget I'm french, and all variables means a lot more to me if written in my own langage ;)

Salut,

Pouvez-vous mettre le fichier .ino à disposition ? Ça permet d'être une source d'inspiration pour les débutants comme moi :)

It looks like a good game ! Gonna test it for sure when i get my Gamebuino Meta this week ;).

j'ai rajouté un lien avec le code sur le premier post.

je comprend la démarche, mais je ne suis pas sur que mon code t'aide grandement.

J'ai commencé à faire  une ébauche à l'arrache à grand renfort de variables. J'ai fini par être dépassé par les évennements donc j'ai repris "proprement" avec des classes avant de finir à  nouveau avec des variables car les idées nouvelles me forçaient à tout modifier.

tt ca pour dire : ne prend surtout pas exemple sur ce programme. ca marche mais le code est moisi :)

Please use only English Comments in the Code and also only English Variable/Function names

I'm not agree with you ripper121. All people don't speak / write english. They can't have to use only English comments or var. They have to do good programs or better than they can. If they can write it into english it's fine but it's not mandatory and it doesn't have to borried them. The source are shared because it's the spirit of the META / Gamebuino and if the program author speak only german, french, japaneese, corean or any other langage, if he had to speak english he could not want share is source code. It's not the spirit i think. He have to share and if someone is interested to understand something, he can ask a translation on the forum, or some explanation on a specific part of the code. Of course, it's just my opinion and of course, if he can do in english without problem, it's better.


PS: Mercy Oncle Rodney pour le partage du source et pour le jeu. Il est très beau. Je n'ai pas eu le temps de tester pour le moment, mais ça ne tardera pas  ;)

This is a French Console, I'd expect at least some games and comments to be in French...

Author :  jicehel

Yes DFX2KX and some in german for german users, some in spanish, some in italian, chineese, polish, asw... for the forum the 2 langages are supported french and english but it's important to use the most we can english to be able to be understood by the more users we can to help all the community. Some users have make other community to be able to exchange in their natural langage to help the people who don't use these langages  and be able to share their tips and answer their questions. Sorry oncle_rodney for this little out of subjet on your post, my next post on your discussion about your game will be on your game, promise  ;)

I edited the initial post in english.

variable name in the code will stay as they are. for my comments, they are in current french and i think google translator could do the job. 

The explaination of this choice is in the initial post too.

If you have questions, just ask me. I'll be glad to answer ;)

i'll try to make an effort for the next one to be readable in english and french

Like this game / make me think of R-Type on GameBoy. Nice graphics , planets are great . Ambience meditative , or contemplative , really cool!
