I hope you are not getting bored yet! The new version of Goldwingu 2: Episode 1; Means to End v.0.9.5 [3.45MB] is out! This one is a pretty heavily optimized version. That’s the good part of being an amateur, you can gain ridiculous amounts of improvement just by being lousy enough to begin with!
In this version:
- Heavy optimization in the drawing routine. This version should be a few times more efficient in drawing than previous versions.
- Moved from using triangles to drawing pixels and just use points and set their size accordingly.
- Reduced the number of glBegin() and glEnd calls.
- Fixed the PNG-reading routine, which should read any PNG-file without hiccups (assuming it has the right colors).
- Added a fuel component to Campaign mode. Now the player has a certain amount of fuel that limits to how far he can fly and replenishes at own planets only.
