This would make a nice screensaver. Image  All it needs a little "pop" sound when the bubbles pop. Keep up the good work.

Thanks for the comments. Actually, the developer has already released it as a shareware screensaver. There should already be a pop sound. Is your wav sound turned up?

It works great on my Radeon 9800, however, it does not work on my computer upstairs which is a lower end system using an Intel Integrated 3D "graphics card".. lol.. This computer can run Quake 3 and Unreal Tournament, even EVE online with all of its shaders, and most other D3D games.. however when I try to run this demo, it gives an error after the screen initializes (switches resolution, the hourglass comes up, and then it hangs for a moment - loading i presume..) and then it says "Object variable or with block variable not set" or whatever..  Perhaps you should test this engine out on a system with Intel Integrated graphics - they are not gaming machines, i know, but many people have them, and for a 2D game to not run on them - even if it uses a 3D engine, is not cool.  Otherwise, the demo looks great on the OTHER computer.

Contact me if you want more info.

Hi Timbo152k,
 
The engine has passed several tests on a variety of older machines/cards, including the onboard Intel cards. We have had a few users state the demo does not run on Windows XP Professional. What OS were you running at the time of  the error? As long as it runs on most of the new "low end" computers coming out today, that's fine with me. ;) I've taken demos into Walmart, Compusa, etc, and the demos run flawlessly on all of their low and high end systems. Thanks for your reply.

Are there only two demos?  I thought you had the engine available for download.

Hi Eric,
 
We used to have an older Direct Draw engine available. Our focus is now on getting this newer engine cleaned up, documented and ready for an initial release.

That sucks.  I was hoping to use it for cbx's contest.  I guess I'll look around and maybe use the dabooda engine.

I finally got the oppurtunity to download this and run it.  Very Nice work, this engine is looking to be something great.  I can't wait for it to be released and try it out.
 
DaBooda out...
 
P.S.  I heard music and popping sounds, lol, nice effect....would make a great screen saver...
