Releases notes for The Wizard of Tower demo
WIZ demonstrates the use of lighting maps
to produce high quality textured enviromnents.
There are 5 rooms to explore. In the first room,
flying bats and warriors wonder around and shot
at you. You can shot back at them and get them
to explode after they were hit three times.
After their destruction, both bats and warriors
get reborn as bats.
This version supports multiplayer mode
and basic sound.
Windows version: wiz.exe
-room [1..5] loads the first 1, 2, ... or 5 rooms.
-room 1 loads only the first room
(this is the default). So, when you go through
a door, you'll get into empty space since no
other room was loaded.
-room 3: will load the first 3 rooms.
-room 5: loads all the rooms.
-sound to turn the sound on. There are
2 sounds: when you are hit and
when a bat or a warrior explodes.
-monster starts a bat and a warrior in the
first room. By default, there is no
monster in the wiz. It is possible
though to add bats and warriors during
the demo using the 'B' and 'M' keys.
(See the "Input section").
use that option for multiplayer mode.
before a WIZ is started in multiplayer mode
a game server (gserver) must be started. (See
"Starting a Multiplayer game").
The serverName is either the IP address or the
full name (as in congo.jungle.com) of the
machine on which the game server is running.
Each player that wants to join the multiplayer
game must type the same command (that is, they
must all connect to the same server).
Currently, all players are represented as Warriors.
When a player is killed by another one, it explodes
and gets almost immediatly reborn.
