Re: ZED Online - a fork of the Zod Engine

http://generalzod.narod.ru/OpenSource/IMG/00003.png The video decoder works. See individual missing pixels in black color (on the right hand of the Zod on the screenshot). Just as a heads up: the next version on Friday will also contain a _very_ early preview of the map editor. Here a video of what...

Re: ZED Online - a fork of the Zod Engine

@APC good and important work :cheers: // ---------------------------------------------------------- Today I did spend some exhausting hours on the file JV decoder. The job was harder than I expected. The description of the file format on the Wiki is written with errors. The header size is incorrect....

@BallWin In my archive I found a map you map called "Happy new year". I downloaded the map in April 2008.
I will convert the map into the Zod format and would like to publish the converted map together with ZED Online eventually. I this OK for you?
Yes, indeed. :cheers:

Re: ZED Online - a fork of the Zod Engine

1) The quality of the cutscenes is definitely low since I am using the .avi files and not the original .jv files. Screen recording the entire thing, encoding, uploading to YouTube, re-encoding also doesn't help of course. I you set the resolution to 1080p on YouTube it is still quite an accuarte re...

Re: ZED Online - a fork of the Zod Engine

Good promotion of the project. I'm glad to see cuts and the game results screen.
Note on YouTube videos:
1) the quality of cuts is very low (maybe it's the artifact record?)
2) if you increase the resolution on the cliffs of the grid (this is also artifacts recording?)

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 ...

It will be difficult.

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...

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. :)
