Set Up Us The Bomb !!!
Set Up Us The Bomb !!! is a multiplayer (on one computer) 3D game where you drive
around in little hovercraft and drop bombs everywhere, attempting to blow each other
up. It was a team effort between Bob,
Bob's friend Dgege, CJ, CJ's friend Alberto,
and me, for The Allegro Team
Competition. Version 0.4, from the competition, was a mess. This release is
Version 0.8, and it's a lot more stable and playable than Version 0.4.
- Multiple resolutions
- Multiple languages
- Plusieurs langues
- Multiples idiomas
- Animals from Sheep
- About ten different power-ups (they appear when you smash into the animals)
- Persistent blood
- Rippling water*
- Particle explosions blended on the
inside but sharp on the outside
- Music played with DUMB
- Really cheesy sound effects
- Artificial stupidity (seriously, all they do is ram the walls)
- Graphics so real they will kill you ...
No networking I'm afraid, but I'll try and implement that one of these days ...
The download contains DOS and Windows executables, and source code. There are makefiles,
but if they don't work, just compile and link all the src/*.c files together (don't
use src/misc/runner.c). When compiling, specify include and src
as directories to search for include files (that's -Iinclude -Isrc on gcc). You
need to link with -laldmb -ldumb -lalleg, or -laldmb -ldumb `allegro-config
In order to use the Windows version, you must download the
Allegro 4.0 DLL (455 kB) if you don't already have it. Save the DLL in

*I modified the rippling water algorithm slightly.
Hugo takes the velocity to be equal to the height of the water two frames earlier.
I take it instead to be equal to the difference in height over the last two frames.
Hugo's method will generate smooth ripples with a constant wavelength. My method is
more sensitive and relies on care being taken when creating disturbances in the
water, but it can handle any wavelength.
