Shamless self pimpage - Biplanes

Wow so theres life in the old girl yet?

When my Amiga bit the bullet the one thing i missed more than anything and the first game i grabbed for UAE was Biplanes or Bip. Stunning multiplayer... but even that wasnt enough so i coded bip for the i386 Windows & Linux, with support for 8 players and some rather iffy network code.

Any comments would be appreciated & if anyone wants to do a graphics set ( as you can see im not too good in that area ) thatd be cool.

get it here www.kardiak.co.uk and go to the downloads section.

cheers guys.

I know nowt about OSX apple mac init? so thats not summit i can do... but the source code will be out soon so perhaps someone else can do something with it.

As for controllers yeah id been thinking about that, good tip if too many people round one keyboard is a problem, just plug in 3 or 4 usb keyboards, makes life a lot easier.

cool man! there are some sound problems on the win version. sometimes if you die and restart the "old "engine sound is still there with the new one.

Other than that...great! (I like skin no 3 )
