Image Description, by
Here are some screenshots of our completed Asteroids clone. I created it
together with Leonard Schreur, who did the graphics. The gameplay is very
alike Asteroids, maybe except for the "boss" stones :-)
We created it to get more practice in 3DS Max (Lenoard) and SDL and its
related libs (me).
Pixel-precise collision detection
(Cross) fading using alphablending
The game is programmed with C++, SDL, SDL_image, SDL_mixer and BFont.
Because of all the pixel operations (antialiasing), and (on most hardware)
non-accelerated alphablending, all rendering happens onto a software surface
(all images also reside in system memory). After each frame, the software
surface is copied to a hardware double-buffer, which is then flipped, so we
still get synchronized blitting.
