Long lost uDev entry.. - Johan - Jan 27, 2009 01:59 AM


I used to be an active member of this board a long time ago, but due to lacking interest I stopped visiting this board sometime around 04-05. I can't even remember what my original user account was so now when I'm back in business I had to create a new one..

I'd like to revive one of my old projects "Kaeru" which was almost entered in uDev (2003?), but I'm afraid most (all? can't find a trace of this project on my drive..) of the source has been lost during the years. So my question is, does any of the old-timers remember this game? Have the binary or even better still have the source code? Even an old screen shot would make me happy Smile

Johan! Good to see you again!

I'll check my hard drive for any trace of Kaeru when I get home. I'm pretty sure I remember playing it, so hopefully I'll be able to find something...

Heh, I found a little "editor" I was trying to make for that game just a week or two ago.
kaeru level 1
level 1,testo
start: 1,0
goal: 0,11
number of whirlpools: 1
whirlpool 1,0,-5
number of lilies: 1
lily 1,0,-5

Sorry no sign of it on my drives though.

Welcome back, and now you know your original user name :-)

Sweet, It's starting to come back to me now.. pretty advanced map format Rolleyes

If I'm lucky I may have a few backup cds from my old powerbook somewhere, just need to figure out where. I'll keep you posted..

Thanks guys for the warm welcome as well Smile

You're in luck! I'm afraid I couldn't find the source code, but I do have a playable binary. I've posted it here:

Thanks! That's great, I guess it needs a bit of work tough Smile Just need to find those sources..

Welcome Johan,

Why not set the same user name?
