Title: A small game called Tubez...

Some of you guys have already seen this, but I can't tell who visits which forum, so I'm posting it here too.  :lol:

Anyway, the objective is to set off the largest chain reaction that you can. The source isn't included, but just send a pm if you wanna look at it for some reason. ;)

Sorry about the freezing thing.  :oops: I'm gonna have to study into openal some more, I guess. It was freezing on my daughter's pc at first too. I haven't been able to find a way to detect the amount of channels(sources) that the pc's audio system has, so I've been allocating a fixed amount and running with it. I'll work on it though.

Yeah, it does alot of ogl stuff that really needs a higher end video card to run smooth. It's extremely slow on my daughter's pc too. :lol: Could you hear the sound though?

It works great for me, sound and all. A sort of Conway's game of life with sneaky rules:D. I'm unable to figure out the good moves....

Really cool! Couple things:

Very slow i got a 2.8 GHz machine and it slowed down to crawl but i still managed a 948 high score

The OpenAL installer is annoying couldnt you have used somthing like FMod or sumthing

I know this is a newbish question but how do you view/edit/create .obj files?

I use Lightwave8. There are several decent free programs though.

i could tell there was supposed to be sound, but it was lagging a lot so i only really heard like "bleh" <.<

This could actually model simulated DNA.. You get one change and it sends a shockwave through the rest of the DNA... It's possible to change all of the tubes from just one change..

I also find it interesting that the complexity of the matrix decreases from a random configuration (read: the tubes start to line up more after changing the tubes) and also that there is no rotational symmetry is also an important point..
