Zion (tactical RPG)
« on: April 25, 2010, 11:11:34 am »
I've been working on a Windows-based tactical RPG off-and-on for the past 2 years and used SFML 1.5 to build the engine. I figured I'd post about it here and thank Laurent for his awesome library and all the support he provides.

Project website (look under Updates for screenshots): http://www.moesaverage.com/zion

Current Demo: http://www.moesaverage.com/zion/demo.rar

To install the demo, just stick ZionFolder directly into your C:/ and then run ZionTest.exe. ZionFolder has to sit in C: because I've been lazy about install paths. You'll get a console window that spits out a ton of gibberish, don't worry about it.

All the commands for the demo character (a robot) are on the right side bar. Those three boxes with the green dots in them are your grenades.

Let me know what you guys think :P

Why C:\ ? Can you just use relative path?

Hmm, fallout-like combat and cyberpunk. This sounds promising.

Looks promising, I'm liking the visual style so far.

A high level suggestion: combine orient into the move command. When you want to move, "draw" the path from the character for him to follow.
