Arokh in arcade shooter? Why not ;-)

Post by Shelim »

I am evil ^^

It took me about 5 days to get Arokh into full* arcade shooter in 3D based on C4 engine.


* - call it full with only single level

Requires:
Windows 2000/XP GeForce 6600 or corresponding and 80 mb of harddisc space

So... let's go roast some evil scum!

And there is bright news - I finally managed to find artist who is willing to work with me on game projects. We are considering numerous ideas and dragon themed single-player cRPG is one of them

I keep seeing this error when I try to start the game:

I know I have the latest version of DirectX installed, so I'm not sure what's happening here.

I see this error for the second time and still have no idea what is reason.

Try this patch, it may help you:

Unrar to the game directory and overwrite C4.exe

Sadly, the revised version did not work.

The error message is still appearing.

I hate programming sometimes. You know, there are moments, when you have problems which show themself only on Mondays, third week of month and only if there is rain outside...

I've been unable to download this; tried over several days. The download gets to 99% complete 1 second remaining and stays there forever untill you cancel it.

After a few more tries, I have downloaded it and it works a treat. Managed to get almost to the end but got killed by the boss. Looks and play OK would be great with more levels. Ill mention it on the main site page.

After many of years I decided to test this shooter, looks really interesting. Firstly I thought the player is just Arokh, but when I take a closer look it looks slightly different, there isn't alpha channel texture of dragons though. I see there are scripts included in src directory,and for compiling it has to run C4.exe.

As for game, it was really hard to get to the final boss of level 1, I managed to finish first level but in second attempt, I thought there will be more levels. For sure if there will be more objects such as trees, ground texture or some hills level should looks quite OK. But after many years, I doubt someone will polish it :)
