Alex the Allegator 4
« on: February 22, 2016, 08:51:03 am »
Hello.
Here's the port of Alex the Allegator 4 platformer with 4-color palette. It uses Allegro for graphics and Dumb library for module music.



Flaws:
- Palette fade in/out was disabled because of bugs. Fixed
- Music can have occasional stutters, this is caused by Dumb+Allegro architecture.

TODO:
- Add more 3rd party maps

Update:
- Improve sound. It's still not perfect but there's much less stuttering now.
- Bring back palette fade ins/outs

Link to opk is the same in the first post.

Another update:
- Changed synchronization from busy loop to timer-based one. The game doesn't hog the whole CPU and sound should be better now.

Played through the whole game. Really good and very challenging sometimes. Good balance.
