    My zombie game

    Here is a screen from a game I am working on. It is nothing fancy, but as it is my first "real" game, im a bit proud.

    It is made without any form of hardware acceleration. All the blitting is done in software. So far I have support for rotation, animation and alpha blitting.

    Working on the UI now:

    Let me know what you think so far.

    Note: I have not made the art in the game. It is just taken from different places. I never intended to show this game to anyone so I didnt really think about where I got the art. If this somehow violates any of the forum rules, please remove the thread.

    Looks pretty good. You need to fix the misalignment in the road. Also, the mismatch in the tiles.

    Wow that looks really good man. How, exactly, are you doing the software rendering?

    Keep up the good work.
    I'm not immature, I'm refined in the opposite direction.

    Thanks for the kind words.

    I know the tiles dont match up, I have actually fixed it, just need to update the tile files.

    The software rendering is do my manipulating a pointer that points to the screen. It is really really slow, but next year I have a game development module at Uni where I have to do it that way, so I figured that it would be a good idea to make my game that way. To be honest I really enjoyed making the graphics routines as fast as possible. They can probably be optimized a lot more, but for a beginner I think I have done ok.

    A demo...Not in a long long time. Way to much stuff that need to be fixed.

    A few question:
    Should I have information of the different parts of the program stored in the gameworld class or in the smaller classes?

    class Gameworld
    {
    // stuff

    private:
    UI interface
    Player mainPlayer
    Map level
    }

    or like this
    class Player
    {

    private:
    UI *uiptr
    }

    I think the first one looks nicer but then I need to send more information around. In the second I only need to send things once.

    Looks good. Keep us updated on its progress. Artwork looks good and the minimap is cool.
