Cinemaware's Wings Remastered coming to Amiga NG platforms
« on: October 11, 2015, 02:46:16 PM »
@thread

during the cinemaware presentation at the amiga30 event in nuess, germany, it was announced that there will be a port of wings remastered to AOS4, AROS, and MOS. you can watch the preview starting at around 10m:38s in this video at youtube.

pre-orders will soon be available at retro.cinemaware.com for those interested. apparently there will be only production run, so be sure to sign up for updates. i know i did. :)

hat-tip to amiga-news.de for the link.

Not surprisingly the port is made by Daniel Musshener (Cherry Darling). I sat next to him and still completely missed it :p

"Wait, isn't that game based on Unity, and thus impossible to port?"

Yes, that is indeed correct. Which is why he will be writing a whole new 3D engine from scratch. Isn't that ambitious enough for you? :D

That's true. It would also be much more impossible ;)

Luckily I can reuse some code from Wings Battlefield (not too much but for example the dynamic LOD system).

If you tried the current build during the show you could see that the menus, intro, story-telling etc. have already been fully ported. You could also check out the current state of the bombing missions (almost done) and the dogfights (work in progress, polygon-cockpit and -pilot / shooting / controls / basic enemies already working).

Hi friends,

now it's your turn :)
The demo-versions are online and preorders are being accepted.
A bigger press release is in the works but I was told to already spread the news nevertheless.

Info to the demos:

don't expect anything bug-free or even final! The code is neither optimized nor complete nor anything yet. And there are placeholders too (for example the explosions of Wings Battlefield).
Of course: I paused working on it for now and will only continue if / when there are enough pre-orders, otherwise the project will be canceled.
So the demos are a snap-shot of the current state of development.
It's about one thing: to show you that it's on a good way and to give you the opportunity to check out if and how it works on your system. It is to be expected that performance and quality will both be higher in the final version (for example regarding performance: the demo doesnt use texture-compression, the models aren't optimized yet, etc.; and for example regarding quality: no volumetric shadows yet, placeholders, missing parts, etc.).

But now to the links:

Preorder here:

p.s.: some known driver related issues on the different systems:
MorphOS: on some systems (Powerbook, MOS 3.9, Radeon 9700 is it I guess) the lighting is broken (all much too dark) and the fog-color is wrong (some byte-order issue)
Warp3D: depending on GPU and resolution some polygons may still vanish here and there
Compositing on SouthernIsland / R200: better don't try it...

The Warp3D version seems to work fine on Sam440ep-Flex@733 MHz, 1 GB RAM and Radeon 9250 (128 MB, 64-bit).

Yes, it should, a 440ep is one of the two test machines here ;)

Thanks :) And even more thanks considering you did it despite of the bad CDN exchange rate...
100 plus some preorders were placed already, things seem to be on a good track.
Cinemaware officials should soon post some more information on this whole topic, they already did in the german a1k forum, so the others should follow soon.

Works fine on my G5 Radeon 9600Pro setup with MorphOS 3.9. Small "bug" I think though.

When strafing, if you go too far back, your plane can never come back. Gets lost. When flying and you're on a bombing run, if you go too far to any side, it takes a while to "fly" back. It shouldnt let you fly off screen so far to where you're gone for such a long time.

Also when strafing, you have to be exactly on target to hit it, bullets look kinda lame. "Circles" instead of something better. Should have spent more time on that detail.

Audio is great, presentation is perfect, music is great also.

Great :)
What you mentioned are no bugs, those are things that simply have not been taken care of during the dev-time until now. It's a teaser, no more no less. It's simply what I could come up with in about for weeks.
