Pretty neat! Still a few graphical glitches. Thanks goes out to my buddy Chris for the screens and test.
As of this posting it’s a very early version with still much of the stock artwork and enemy types. But, it’s fun and playable. Go Akihabara!
The story goes that you’re a BastardBlaster, conscripted to battle everything in the world that’s annoying. Flat tires, Blue Screens of Death, when you go to eat pizza and there’s none left… the list goes on and on. If it’s annoying, you shoot it.
I’m under a tight deadline for BastardBlaster, the game I’m building right now for the Guelph Game Jam, so I’ll share my quick and dirty way to convert audio files in Linux and using some Windows software with Wine.
The source music is music modules in the .it (Impulse Tracker) format. So, I used Winamp (running via Wine) to export as .wav files. From there, I used the MP3 to OGG conversion script on this page (modified a bit) to do:
./wav2ogg filename.wav filename.ogg
wav2ogg’s contents look like this:
[rocky1138@atlas Music]$ cat wav2ogg.sh oggenc -o "$2" "$1"
Hope this helps someone in the future :) Note you have to have oggenc (vorbis-tools) installed in order for that to work :)
Now to do mp3s….
I love the music David K Newton makes. I can’t wait to export a few of his music modules to MP3 and OGG for use in the Guelph Game Jam game I’m making! Woot!
Ahh, refreshing tea from Bon The Place (my fav tea store, ever.)
Got the game working in Chrome since I decided to simply host it locally with Apache at localhost. Just makes thing simpler since Chrome seems to run the game a lot faster than Firefox (my laptop is a beat up piece of … but it’s still kickin’ so I really can’t complain, I guess.)
Will post more progress and I make some.
Hopefully once the game makes it out to the web this will go away as it’s the same domain policy that’s causing problems.
BastardBlaster is not running in Chrome because of this:
Cross origin requests are only supported for HTTP.
At least now I have some direction on where to head.
Thanks Guelph Game Jam!
I threw the OGGs and MP3s in the directory and we’re off to the races. Still get “Not well formed” but the game runs. Who knows?
