FuchsGUI Update

09/08/2011 Leave a comment

Hello there, sorry for being inactive lately but I don’t feel like programming or learning something new :(.

Anyway, I fixed the issue in FuchsGUI where some text was blurry, the reason was that the text was being rendered with floating point values for position, something like (20.3f,29.4), this meant that spriteBatch should split physical pixels :(.

Anyway, thanks to a guy named Fab who told me how to fix this, the solution was something like this:

position.X = (int)Position.X;
position.Y = (int)Position.Y;
// Render here

So, here’s the fixed version (XNA4 only):

ย ย  FuchsGUI v1.1 Source Bin XNA4 (Blurry Text Fixed)

I hope to see you later :)…

Stay tuned :P

Some unpublished projects…published

24/12/2010 1 comment

Well… I have a bunch of old projects that weren’t published for some reasons…It’s time for them to finally see the light ๐Ÿ™‚
Just a few notes:
-These are old, so many things are less professional than I would write now, many things have nothing to do with OOP…

-You’ll need the SFML dlls to run any SFML game.


Labyrinth Maze:

SFML, OpenGL, C++ (VisualStudoi2008)

How to change spawn time in Battlefield 2 & lots more! Part III

04/10/2010 16 comments

In this post I’m gonna write some cool tweaks for Battlefield2, Please make sure you’ve already read Part I & Part II because things here won’t be explained in much detail.
Open any .tweak file of a weapon and try these tweaks ๐Ÿ˜‰

1-Shoot walls from your gun
To protect your self against tanks or other soldiers you can shoot a wall!ย  just change the projectile type of a weapon to barrier_blocks_high_8m , if you try it now you’ll end up stuck inside the wall haha! ๐Ÿ˜€
You have to add this line (got it from c4_explosives.tweak and changed some values):
ObjectTemplate.fire.projectileStartPosition 0/0/7
Search for the block that begins with the line
rem —BeginComp:SingleFireComp —
and add it there..
This means the projectile (a wall in our case) will have a position of 0 units on X, 0 units on Y , 7 units on Z which means the wall will be 7 units in front of you. note thatย  x,y,z are relative to the player…
The cool thing is that these walls are real! yes, bullets cannot get through :D!

Wall
A bunker ๐Ÿ˜‰ make sure you leave a Read more…

How to change spawn time in Battlefield 2 & lots more! Part II

25/09/2010 10 comments

Introduction:

In Part I , I talked about changing the spawn time using two methods : console screen , changing game files, So you see you can do much by changing the game files…. ๐Ÿ™‚
In thisย  article (and the next one) I’m gonna show you how to make a weapon shoot whatever you like, change reloading times and more…
For example, you can make a pistol shoot a heat seeking missile, you can create walls with your gun!…
Before starting you must understand that almost every thing in the game is an Object!, bullets ,missiles ,grenades ,sand sacks…all these are objects.
So what we’re going to do is simply opening the .tweak file associated with a certain weapon and change the line that specifies the projectile object for that weapon…
Here’s the line that specifies the projectile object of the M4 rifle (used by USMC Special Forces Kit):

ObjectTemplate.projectileTemplate M4Projectile

What this line does is making the M4 rifle shoot projectiles of the type M4Projectile, By changing this line we can make this rifle shoot almost anything!.

Where can I find those .tweak files?

In your Battlefield2 root directory search for a file called Read more…

BF2

Battlefield 2

Battlefield2 is an amazing shooting game, although the game is a little old (2004) it’s still worth playing! ๐Ÿ˜‰

The game is a military game, you can enjoy a collection of real weapons,vehicles and of course high graphics, you can play in many vast maps!

Changing Spawn Time:

Let’s say we want to change spawn time to 3 seconds! Two ways I’ve found:
