For those who could be interested, the final version of my Mini Slug is available.
(Binaries for Windows & Linux included).
Edit : A Mac version is also available now, thanks to my friend "Pouet".
The link didn't change:
You can now configure the keyboard, and I added joystick support (only tested with an old stick on Windows).
Many thanks for the quality rips found here and there, (nick)names are included in the credits.
Original post follows:
I'm not really a ripper but rather a coder. I'm currently working on a game by myself, just for fun.
As I am using many material coming fom The Spriters Resource, and I just made a "public preview", I thought some of you might like to see the result, and the use I made of your rips.
This preview is limited to 1 mission, and not everything is finished/tuned up. But I think it's playable and is a good glimpse of what the final product will be. (There will be 3 missions in the final product, and hopefully more stuff !).
There are no ingame credits by now, but don't worry, there'll be in the final version.
I did the archive today, and I've had no time to translate the readme file in english. Sorry about that.
You'll need the following controls :
On the main menu :
1 (or keypad 1) : switches 1 credit / 3 credits / infinite credits.
To play :
V = Shot,
C = Jump,
X = Bomb,
Down + C to exit a vehicle.
F10 to switch widowed mode/fullscreen mode.
You can get the archive here :
(Sorry the page is in french)
There is a Windows exe and a Debian 5 elf, the later also seems to run on an Ubuntu and a Debian Squeeeze 64 bits.
At the moment, the credits for the rips are going to (in no particular order): Gussprint, The Mad Soldier, Random Rebel Soldier, C2000MC/Futaokuu, Random Talking Bush, Kevin Huff, Grey Wolf Leader, Magma Dragoon, AzRaezel/Dan, The_Protagonist, Tk big_mickey_k, Grim, @$$h0l3 (what a nickname is that!?), Crazy Slug, Xezan... and some 'unsigned' rips. Hope I'm not forgetting anyone. (Obviously, I'm not using the rips of all these people in just one mission !
PS : I'm not an English speaker, please excuse my mistakes.
Screenshot (well, I moved the truck since, but I got too lazy to make another sreenshot).
Edit 2 :
Added a mode 2x and TV2x, switch with F9. For optimum performance (especially if used on a Linux system), please switch to a 16 bits color depth screen mode, the conversion 16 > 24(or 32) bits seems very sloooow.
