Jump And Hang

Finally i have finished (with some little bug) the Jump and Hang Kid action!

In this commit (on source repository)

>JUMP and HANG
> RUNJUMP x  and y alignement like the original game
> STANDJUMP x and y alignement like the original game
> New TypeCommand in sequence xml, FUNCTION_BOOL it can call in reflection a Method or Property with bool return type.

It used in STANDJUMP kid sequence for determine if when kid make a standing jump if LAND over platform or fall. If true CALL SJLAND or false call STEPFALL.

Syntiax : <parameter>function_name|true =call sequence|false=call sequence</parameter>

      <Frame>
        <type>COMMAND</type>
        <name>FUNCTION_BOOL</name>
        <parameter>IsNextTileGround|SJLAND|STEPFALL</parameter>
        <stoppable>false</stoppable>
      </Frame>

Sources updated and clickone and binary windows on codeplex.

Some new fixes - Source updated

I have fixed some routines on HandleCollisionTiles and i compare the kid collision with the original Prince Of Persia.

Fixed and new Implementetions:

- CheckGround : rewrited the routine

- WallCollision : completed the handle collision with walls, there are two limit, near and attached

- Chomper : rewrited the chomper collision and dead fall

- PlatformEdge : kid now can move at edge's limit, shift + movement.

- New xml structure : theres a third xml level's structure, it will be used on next PoP net version. For now the new structure is called PoN.


Indevelopment :

- CallFunctionAndProperty : in sequences, now there's a new "command" FUNCION_type, it will be usefull for determine the right action, directly in xml.

For example:
Kid make a stand jump, at the end of the sequence it calls the property IsOnGround, if true kid is over a platform, the sequence call the SJLAND for land over it, but if not present (false) the sequence call the STEPFALL for falling action.
- JumpAndGrab : i will use the new command for determine when falling if theres a edge platform for hang.

I have notice some different kid action and distances from the "original" kid msdos version.

How many shift pixel is composed the kid "running jump" ?

It' s difficult for me grab the screen and compare the kid position between PoP.ne

Could someone tell me  how many pixel Kid is moved ? (for stand jump, runningjump etc..)

- Complete the LoadLevel for the PoN xml struture




In mean while the source repository was updated!

Apoplexy Level Editor

Apoplexy Level Editor

Wake up after a long sleep...

I'm developing the porting of the Apoplexy XML file, it contains the definition of a Prince Of Persia 1 level structure.

This is the first load of the level1.xml

A little help

A little help

I transcript a initial private conversation about PoP.net futures

SALVADOR CABANAS
Andrea, i want to ask about prince net, what elements need to be added, i cannot see prince interactions with items, also there is no fighting animation??? anything else that need to be added???

ME
Dear,
the first step (I think) is make the compatibily with Apoplexy level editor.
Apoplexy is a prince of persia editor maded from Norbert, it permit to load standard prince dat files and export into xml, my last attempt is to read the output xml for 
generate the levels.
There are a lot of custom and original level maded by prince fans, it will be cool load the original and custom levels into the PoP.net.
link -> http://forum.princed.org/   see level editor

Prince interaction with item are done : sword, potions

Prince fighiting animation are all done : sword combat
Miss: some interaction with plate 

Good look and if you make some changes into the PoP.net source please commit on original codeplex repository.

bye




SALVADOR CABANAS
You need to change the level structure to make it compatible, by now it allow some different stuff, like each room is an xml file, the problem is that apoplexy will not allow some references to elements becuase is not a net application, is c++ based..

ME
Yeah right,
the apoplexy xml output is bad, BUT i don't like to program another PoP level editor.
The solution is to make a wrapper for read the Apoplexy xml and build the maze or a conversion tool for write PoP.net xml.

The best solution i think it's the first.
We can check on startup the presence of some files into the dir ".\Apoplexy\xml" and if found
read and build the maze

The Apoplexy tags are

<level>
<rooms>
<tile element="x" modifier="x">
<guard location="x" direction="x" skill="x" colors="x">
<links left="x" right="x" up="x" down="X">
</rooms>
</levels>
<prince room="x" location="x" direction="x">
</prince> //MISSED CLOSING TAG Norbert can you fix it!!!
<userdata fields="?">
<field key="Level Description" value="Level 1">
<field key="Original Level Number" value="1">
</userdata>

<events>
<event number="x" room="x" location="x" next="x">
</events>
