Third presentation summary

Last May 6th was the third time we had to present our project in front of the jury, and in spite of some technical issues, the overall presentation went well.

The jury though the same way and proved it by giving us once more the best grade of all projects! We got 19.17 this time, which makes an average grade of 18.70. This ranks us on the top, and even 0.6 points above the second group.

As usual, every executable, sources and report files are available in the download section.

Finally, as far as school is concerned, the project is due on June 17th. Logically, the release candidate 1.0 should be available on that day. A few additional screenshots are also available in the game section of our site so you can wait for that time.

First Presentation Review

The first presentation has been perfectly executed, we managed to talk about everything we wanted. Even though 15 minutes is too short and really not enough to go into enough detail about all everything we've made.

The written report (in french) has been added to the download section of the website along with the executables and sources of the current developments in the project.

First Presentation Coming Soon

The first presentation is upcoming, so here is a short preview of who made what in the project.

  • Félix built an option configuration tool aswell as a unit editor which is going to let us add content to the game as easily as clicking a mouse. He also made a game simulator where you can control every unit aspect from creation to destruction: position, movement, and abilities of two or more players can be handled. It will be added into the game in a later process of the development.

  • Vizigr0u is in charge of the unit movement. He made a program, based on the pathfinding algorithm A*, that displays the fastest path between two points A and B. The algorithm is currently being tweaked in order to fits the game's needs.

  • Banban is our PR guy, his job involves a lot of things to do with the website, the goodies like the fooo shirts, the trailer movie etc. As a coder, he worked on the basics of a network engine. In its current state, it allows multiples clients to connect to a server and send text messages.

  • Vjeux is working on the 3D engine and the interface. He is currently loading a randomly-texturised ground and texturised 3D models. He made a picking algorithm to select units, the ability to move on the map using either the keyboard or the mouse, and a 2D interface.

For more details, see the game section for screenshots and the download section for getting executables and sources.

Lastly, a small trailer introducing the game and starring the Fooo Team. It will be broadcasted during the presentation:
