Ah, that's unfortunate. You didn't have enough space to make a backup of at least your home directory or anything? Did you do an upgrade install or a clean one?

My game is loosely based on the flash game Spaced Penguin (google search for it if you want to play that).
Differences:
  • in mine you are a spaceship launching missiles at another spaceship
  • you have a limited supply of missiles
  • more powerup types
  • multiple targets per level (you don't have to hit all of them with one shot)

I'll try to get a screenshot or build up soon. It's close to playable. I just got done implementing the gravity from planets on the missile but that caused my collision checking code to misbehave so I want to have that fixed before showing it off. Smile

I have all the code, the issue is that there were several problems with my code earlier that didn't really matter and compiled in Panther but crash on Tiger. It's good that I'm going to fix them now, but I don't want to.

Would it not be sensible to have a thread for each game in the Work In Progress section of the forum?

It is getting a bit tangled and confusing in this thread now that people are posting about one game and then replies appearing about another. Maybe a simple mistake to make for a new forum member, but at least one of the posters in here is not so new Wink

I know that feeling all too well. Just hope you don't get hooked playing other people's entries - or maybe I do so the competition drops Wink
