Status

Future Wars was completable with original cinE. Operation Stealth has gfx glitches and now crashes early.

Source Cleanup

  • Wrap the code into C++ classes where applicable/suitable. Possible classes candidates :
    • Gfx/Screen (bg_list.cpp, gfx.cpp)
    • Script (script.cpp)
    • Resource (bg.cpp, msg.cpp, part.cpp, prc.cpp, pal.cpp)
    • CineEngine (object.cpp, anim.cpp, various.cpp)
    • Sound (already done)
  • rename functions and variables that need it
  • reorganize functions and variables in cine/various.cpp

ToDo

  • implement, adapt or remove the following options in the system menu :
    • Pause
    • Restart Game
    • Change Backup Drive
  • add support for AtariST sound and music resources (if different from Amiga)
  • add support for MT32 and PC Speaker instruments in the PC SoundFX player code (write PCSoundDriver subclasses)
  • add code for fadeIn/fadeOut
  • optimize the rendering (doing a full screen and palette refresh on each frame could be avoided)
  • use Common::List instead of custom linked lists (should allow removal and/or simplification of several functions)
  • cruisE and Cine have several chunks of code in common, find a way to factorize
    • sound code/system
    • gfx routines
    • unpacking routine
    • resource loading (parts, vol.cnf)
  • finish OS support (crash early in-game)
