Mowteor v1.1 Released (02 Apr 2012 22:31)

Mowteor v1.1 has been released.

This is the first game to use the new JGUI2 engine which is based on Allegro 5. Mowteor has been used as a test game to ensure that JGUI2 works correctly.

Although this game is similar to the original (a simple 2D game), it is both a complete rewrite and a significant milestone.

Notable new features include an improved GUI, support for native screen resolutions, hardware acceleration, smoothing/AA and an all new sound engine.

The Dark Conspiracy mod CANCELED! (05 Sep 2008 16:24)

The mod Dark Rain was working on (The Dark Conspiracy) has been cancelled! This was caused by a weapon bug, conserning the player character. So Dark Rain deleted most of the mod, only the tileset stayed. But, Dark Rain is going to make a multiplayer mod out of the rest! Containing, like Dark Rain said: 10 maps maybe! Dark Rain hasent got any inspiration left to do the rest. (It must have been quite a shock, loosing that much u know!) Very Breaking News!

M2 makes its mark in google! (16 Mar 2007 22:22)

Currently, searching for Meteor 2 gets jbgames.com as the first source. M2 screenshots also start showing up after the third image result for Meteor 2. This is rather remarkable as meteor is a common word, and often gets placed last behind buckets of wikipedia pages and astronomy websites. In your face NASA!

Though Meteor has no mark on google video, and will most likely be placed behind because of some sort of Chinese television show called "Meteor Garden". So you know what that means; Start recording Meteor Vids!


#meteor2 IRC made easy! (10 Mar 2007 02:02)

Aleksanteri has released a little program that makes it easy to reach the meteor2 channel via IRC. Its completely free, though it is limited to only connecting to the #meteor2 channel. It is also limited in much other customizations, though other than that it is a great program. Just open it up, tell it your name, and your connected. So fast it can run on a Windows95 at light speed. It's also less than 1MB. Totally worth to download, as it makes chatting with other Meteor players so easy Ms. Goose could do it.

Objects Resource File not Abandoned! (27 Jan 2007 04:30)

Even though it's been almost a year in development period, Papercut's ''Objects Resource File'' is still existing. It still needs to be assembled together, and thus will take some time (Because I rarely get around to it.) There are currently 22 objects in the file. You can still submit your own homemade objects to be implemented into the file for redistribution at papercut1425@yahoo.com. Release date is still unsure of, but should still open up more oppurtunities to meteor 2 modding. Keep sending in objects!

Meteor 2 v1.3 beta testing starts this weekend (24 Jan 2007 12:33)

Meteor 2 v1.3 will begin beta testing this weekend (or perhaps earlier). This means that beta subscribers will be able to obtain it from the weekend for testing.

v1.3 is a big leap from v1.21 so there is a lot to test. Testing the multiplayer code is especially important.

Once we are all happy that the beta performs I will roll out v1.3.

Meteor Mod Manager v1.2 Released (01 Sep 2006 00:00)

Meteor Mod Manager v1.2 has been released.

This version fixes bugs when creating new mods for Meteor and has been tested under Meteor v1.32.

http://www.jbgames.com/software/MeteorModManager/


Meteor 1 Crater Mod Released (31 Aug 2006 00:00)

Finally! The long awaited CRATER has arrived! Be glad as you are now an owner of one of M1's First Full Total Conversions! This TC is loaded with high quality soundfx, music, Sprites, tilesets, races, weapons, projectiles, powerups, and of course, maps!

CRATER Features a brand new story-line, which doesn't relate to the original Meteor storyline in any way. The Main Character doesn't actually have a name. The Main Character is supposed to represent "You" as the character. The story focuses directly on you, by telling feelings, sights, sounds, etc. Mission Briefings don't actually give you directions on how to complete the map, but just tell you whats going on, and what you as the character knows.

----------------------------------------------------------

CRATER was developed alongside Meteor v1.32 and takes full advantage of the new features. CRATER's use of Meteor's new sound capabilities and its excellent gameplay make this mod outstanding.

Meteor v1.32 is required to play Crater.

Download Crater from:

Meteor 2 v1.22 public beta released (26 Mar 2006 00:00)


Meteor 2 v1.22 is undergoing public beta testing, so feel free to get involved.

There is a still a load of stuff to do but I wanted people to play around with what has changed so far and get some feedback. The changes made so far are:

- Added basic group control, select units by dragging over them with the mouse and issue commands such as goto, guard and follow. This only effects applicable allied units (just like the "E" key to follow mode).
- Changed the script file extension from .sc to .c. This is to aid script includes and also allows script to be edited properly in conventional C editors (like Visual Studio or Notepad 2) without any issues or special configuration. Meteor will look for .sc files too so older map scripts will continue to work just fine.
- Objects with rotating weapons now only rotate their turrets when in guarding mode.
- Increased the maximum "item count" in multiplayer from 32,767 (signed 16 bit) to 2,147,483,647 (signed 32 bit).
- Minor tweaks to Base Alpha map.
- When saving games the current playing music filename is stored, so loading the game again will not effect the music playback (even for custom tracks).
- Obsolete saved games are now detected correctly. In previous versions Meteor attempted to load older saved game files which caused problems.
- Fixed game pausing, it now works better than ever!
- Weapon Editor: Fixed a bug which was preventing some of the data in the list from being updated (sprite image).
- Sprite Editor: When changing a sprite's description the current description is shown in the box (its not just blank anymore).
- Sprite Editor: When adding a new frame the image picker defaults to the image of the previous frame (if more than 1 frame exists).

Peding changes (todo) include fixing the sound for certain objects (i.e. some aircraft don't make noise when they fly overhead), working on the "goto" AI and wall sliding (see forums somewhere).

Here is the patch URL, unzip to your Meteor folder (requires M2 v1.21). BACK UP YOUR M2 FOLDER FIRST!

New version of the original Rod planned (20 Feb 2005 00:00)

A new version of the original Rod game is planned. The schedule is not finalised but it is expected to be completed in the coming months.

Rod 2 Test re-released for Win32 (20 Feb 2005 00:00)

The Rod 2 Test was developed for DOS in 1999 and was the my first sector based game. This sector based engine was later redeveloped and used for Meteor 2.

This game is an excellent example of my early sector based work and has for this reason being made available.

The test contains 4 very simple levels and takes just mintues to complete (so don't get too excited). Feel free to make use of the editors and develop your own content.

You can download the test right here...

Meteor 2 Map Submissions - Deadline Extended (01 Jan 2005 00:00)

Ok so Meteor 2 did not quite make 2004 but here is the good news.

Given the new release date of January 2005 (so its within a month!) I am extending the time allowed for forum users to submit Meteor 2 maps for the final game.

If you are planning on making any maps for Meteor 2 then please let me know in this forum thread within the next few days...

http://www.jbserver.com/forums/ThreadView.asp?ForumId=4&TopicId=25&ThreadId=492

Once I know who is making maps I am happy to wait a couple of weeks so you have plenty of time to make some nice missions.

James.


Meteor 2 Maps Wanted! (27 Dec 2004 00:00)

Anyone who want to add their own levels to Meteor 2 must have their maps sent in by 30 December 2004.

Any well made levels will be considered for the final game. If you can't get your script to go just send your map(s) in anyway, I can deal with all that stuff. If your map is simply terrain that thats OK too provided that it is well made up!

If your map(s) make it into the game you get in the credits (please state your "credits name" with your submissions)!

Send maps here http://www.jbgames.com/site/contact/

Get to work.

James.

Notes:

- Levels which are added to the game may be subject to heavy editing and alterations by James
- New textures can be added (256 by 256 max, use correct numbered naming i.e. stone01.pcx, stone02.pcx etc).

Ideas:

Tank battle maps
Artic maps
Jungle maps
Mountain maps
Urban/city maps
Large enemy installations
Naval battles
Dessert maps
