I finished the Dreamcast game I've been working on for the past month called, Hidden Cosmos. It's similar to Galaga but with a story and four player multiplayer. And by the way, it's open source:

You can get the game and the code here: http://sites.google.com/site/enigmaticcoder/games

Thanks to everyone who's helped me the past few weeks! I'm very grateful.

By the way, if you're trying to run the .elf with the BBA, it won't work unless you change this line in globals.cpp:

const std::string DIR = "/pc/home/john/Desktop/Link to Programming/Hidden Cosmos";

to

const std::string DIR = *INSERT PATH TO THE UNZIPPED FILES*

I played it a little bit. Good work!

The pc directory isn't really necessary if you have a BBA because we can use iso redirection. I just set the directory to DIR_CD and made an iso of the directory.

I thought the executable was a little large at 9MB stripped but later found out it's the romdisk data that's huge. I think you could use a small slice of the starfield and repeat it and a text menu.

I like the dialogue between missions, nice music, pretty stable. I got to the asteroid (Hidden Cosmos?) level but haven't finished the game. I like the animations of the enemies coming onto screen even though its hard to tell where they'll come from.

All in all, a nice game. Thanks for the release and hope you get more done. All the best!

Thanks so much you guys!

I was in San Fransisco the past four days, so I haven't been able to keep up with this thread, but I'm back now. I'm glad you guys played it! Very nice new years eve treat.

Sometime in the future I will be updating this game to include score and possibly power ups. I'll be using the advice that I got from you, nymus, and from gyrovorbis on his forums. All in all, I appreciate your tips and that you played the game. Expect more releases from me in the future!

So the code is free to use? Also for commercial use?
