Re: ZED Online - a fork of the Zod Engine

I am unable to answer this question at this time. I'll look for the answer.

Re: ZED Online - a fork of the Zod Engine

I have just release version 0.1.1 of ZED Online. (Depending on which gateway you use and where you are the patch file should be available via the auto-updater in 1 or 2 hours after this post). :shake: :shake: Intersting ... GPL and LGPL is compatible so that's not a big issue. However, that means o...

Re: ZED Online - a fork of the Zod Engine

I don't see the problem. The code is well-written. It is actually way more understandable than the "explanation" at https://wiki.multimedia.cx/index.php?title=JV Maybe I am overlooking something, but especially with the file jvdec.c it should only take about a weekend to read JV files and output th...

Re: the junk yard

Someone in the ideas section mentioned they’d like to see an armored car in the next Z, so here comes the 6-wheeler jeep/tank hybrid. Cool. Did you draw this yourself? This technique will move quickly like a jeep. It has power as a light tank. It is necessary to compensate for the violation of the ...

Re: ZED Online - a fork of the Zod Engine

It will be difficult. JV video decoder (ffmpeg-libavformat) : https://github.com/libav/libav/blob/4ce701b4e640d4723a4005d664f31f8342fac40e/libavformat/jvdec.c https://gitgud.io/january/ffmpeg/blob/master/libavformat/jvdec.c JV demuxer (ffmpeg-libavcodec): https://github.com/libav/libav/blob/4ce701b4...

Re: ZED Online - a fork of the Zod Engine

Yes, it would only work under Windows. I would love to write a player for the original JV files that then would also work under Linux. The videos are played back in the same window as the game and the UI. I still don't understand how the file format works. The explanation at https://wiki.multimedia...

Re: ZED Online - a fork of the Zod Engine

I downloaded the cutscenes in avi format. I think the download link was posted in this forum. The player is a simple media player using Microsoft's DirectShow. This will only work with Windows. (This is not a criticism. This is a statement of fact.) Do you plan to play video content in a separate i...

Re: ZED Online - a fork of the Zod Engine

B) There should be added "unit" to the production list of all factories - TNT autodestruction of factory. Manufacturing time similar to Grunts, to prevent misuse as very fast scorched earth policy. Brilliantly! At threat of capture of plant by the opponent it will be possible to destroy it! Excelle...

While I was not looking at how AI actually works. I will deal with AI later (much later). Probably it is possible to ask the DaMarkov. :)

Re: ZED Online - a fork of the Zod Engine

The project in its current state is loaded here https://yadi.sk/d/iNqfUvTDwwq2Ww or GitHab repo https://github.com/BallWin/Qt_ZodEngine. IDE - QtCreator https://www.qt.io/download I think it's easy to migrate to another IDE. I understand that the Zod engine has some spaghetti code (for example SDL i...

Re: ZED Online - a fork of the Zod Engine

I mentioned that I recently downloaded the Zod Engine for revision. In my opinion there is some disorder. I wanted to split the engine into functional modules. This was done. The result is a set of libraries (in compilation order): QZod_DnSeparate files with minimal dependencies that are required in...

Re: ZED Online - a fork of the Zod Engine

Thanks! I would love to include the Russian sound translation since my project already supports the English, German, French, Spanish and Italian sound files. Ок. I'll search. CZMapDoc reads the files quite well, but only converts the tile data to the Zod map format. I extended it to convert zone, o...

Re: ZED Online - a fork of the Zod Engine

You have reported that the zod_map_converter is not working properly. Or am I confused? CZMapDoc Files.h, zed_unpack.h once upon a time I wrote (unboxing wrote Meeky). What's wrong? By the way, I have heard there is a Russian fan-translation of Z. Do you know if it is complete and how I could get th...

I also couldn't find these animations. I have to ask FreakNigh how he extracted the other animations from the game. So far I couldn't reach him though.
