Hey, I got my full version of dbpro finally, so I thought I would convert the old game into dbpro.

Tested in DBPRO 5.7
19 Lines of code also.

Get it in the Code box or you can also get a complied version here:
http://toxiceu.ath.cx/~ggrpg/BalanceOutIII.zip

Here is a piccy:


Controls are very simple, move the board with arrow keys.

Some changes from II:
- Improved texture Quality for the floor
- A slightly different camera movement
- Removed 1 line of code
- 800x600x32 resolution
- Basically minor changes to make it work in Dbpro

I remember a thing like this, where you had to tilt a board, moving a ball around a maze, and there were holes and stuff. Nice

THAT FRICKIN ROCKS!!

Seriously.. You should look into making a proper game (ie menu, sounds, different "boards", etc) and maybe patenting that idea.. Its FUN with a capital PH!!

Haha, that was fun! First score was 3 tho after playing for a while I got it up to 6. Rich certainly seemed to like it, if you'll check the newsletter you'll notice PiratSS is now the proud owner of...

Congrats (can't belive Rich finally brought back the 23-liners, heh, maybe I'll enter something. t'would be great to get fpsc without paying $56 )

@PiratSS: Hey! Look at this month's newsletter (Issue 26), you won a prize! I agree with that, my 20 line shooter is good, but your code is shorter, 3d and more in the spirit of the 20 lines competition. And it's fun! Congratulations!!!

Wow, thanks for the sticky

I am glad so many people found this game interesting and original. I had further plans to make it into an actual game, but I have some other games to take care of first

Looks pretty cool!
I'd like the compiled .exe, but it seems the link you provided isn't hosting the file
So, could you give me another link, or send me the file via email?

I think it's just my slow Windows ME computer, but the game went so slowly that I could go on forever (Mind you, I had to change the 32 bit mode to 16 because my computer doesn't support 32 bits )
Well, it works better if I change the .01s to .1s
Great game; nice work

Your computer supports 15 bit display mode?

If it was me, I wouldn't know it.

Oops, don't know why I typed that... must have been thinking of the 16 bits using 5 for each color (15 color bits, 1 alpha). It's just my old computer, I've got a newer XP one also .
Found out why it was running so slow: windowed fullscreen mode. Changed to windowed (with titlebar) and it worked great.

I got 13

Really awesome job, PiratSS

I'm unsticking this, as it's got hardly any attention, and hasn't won anything new in a while

Hurray!
