Winter-Pong
« on: October 30, 2013, 04:59:54 pm »
I think I mentioned already that I'm making a little game to learn Ruby.
Its a Pong game with a few extras and I'll use it for a contest on GameDev. The contest-deadline is approaching(about a day left) and I only got notice of a single person who wanted to try it out, but not if it runs now.
This makes me incredibly nervous as I dont want to get into the situation where the game only runs on my computer and some small quirk prevents it to run on others.
Please, try it out and be so kind as to give a reply. Even something simple like: "I tried it on ... OS with Ruby version ... and it runs/runs not/runs only with additionally having the DevKit installed, because ... ."

For installation on Windows get Ruby 1.9.3 from http://rubyinstaller.org/ and install it in a dir without spaces with the extra options enabled to let it make file associations and add it to the path.
Unpack the game package you can dl from https://www.dropbox.com/s/g7ykbg55jj4w4vn/winter-pong-0.3.zip somewhere, start install-rbSFML.bat from that directory, double click one of the two .rbw files.
The game should run on other OS, but its untested and more involved, having to compile your own version of rbSFML and possibly SFML. Detailed instructions are inside the package.

This is a preview version, I plan on doing an update soon to add/improve a few more things.

Do you have any screenshots, or at least a description of what the game is?  I assume it's Pong :P

Yes, its Pong. I was hoping people get curious about the extras I wrote about and just try it. :P

Ok, it got menu screens, intro, sound, music, power-ups; I made images with inkscape for the different things in the game. ;)

There is a screen of an old version without the new things: http://www.gamedev.net/topic/648431-putt-updates-and-finals-thread/page-2#entry5103151

I packaged a new version of my game, where I added a new power-up and animated snow.
You can get it from https://www.dropbox.com/s/rc08imb7d7mltlr/winter-pong-1.0.zip.

Installation is the same as described above. If you installed Ruby and the rbSFML gem already for trying the older version you only need to unzip and start the game.

I'll be happy if you try it out and tell me how you like it. ;)
