Brief update on the latest achievements.
- App for reading BTB files. Mostly for visualization purposes. One important feature is constructing walkability texture for a level. More work has to be done here.
- Using walk map simple pathfinding was added. It's in the beginning, but can already calc pathes around the level (currently using classic A*, may change in the future). A LOT of work is still required here.
- Also simple app for reading sprite file (based on previous work). Mostly for converting sprites into modern format. The reason - create some squads for imporving pathfinding.

Ghabry,

Sources for everything could be found on my github account https://github.com/devast3d
Specifically BtbEditor is here https://github.com/devast3d/BtbEditor, compiled version is here https://github.com/devast3d/BtbEditor/tree/master/BtbUI/bin/Release
Feel free to do anything with it Smiley

BTW, I'm currently working on adding steering behaviors for the unit. Finished first (normally working) version today Smiley

Thanks, the new BTB Editor could be convenient compared to Robs legacy one. Did you figure out anything new about BTB during the last years? Same question applies to PRJ.

Nope, I've written it mostly for preparing pathfinding. It could be used as the full substitution, however, I don't have time to make it so. The only new thing I've discovered is proper usage if LIT files.
p.s. Let's not flood this thread with off-topic. We can discuss this either in slack or another thread Smiley

The May was very fruitful for DOReborn project.
Unit pathfinding is probably the biggest feature added this month. Along with improved movement it takes into account all walkable terrain on the level now.
The Level got deployment zone which does not affect gameplay yet. Also, some basic HUD elements and unit commands were implemented.

Last but not least is implementation of unit charge maneuver

There are some minor bugs here and there but with such almighty developer as devast3d they are doomed to be fixed

It's certainly progressing well and I would urge anyone interested in game development and all Dark Omen fans to join in the fun, as great learning!

Movement revamp, collisions and more

Earlier this month, it was decided to go through complete code refactoring due to downsides of unit movement, i.e. drifting, stucking and other issues made movement look and feel not right. It was a tough decision and took 3 weeks of programming efforts but it was definitely worth it. Now, movement looks very spot on to the original Dark Omen's one and somewhat even surpassed it (more fluid, no way to repro DO "dancing bug").
Numerous playtests helped to succefully discovered precise movement speed formula used by units in Dark Omen. New map with tick marks for testing helped greatly to achieve this.
Another playtest sessions helped to find unit formation dependency in DO which has already been succesfully added to current build version of DOReborn
Next steps are implementation of proper unit collision which will allow to proceed with implementation of melee combat mechanic.

The video below demostrates mentioned updates:
