Magic Pockets remake - work started

Hi,

I'm starting a Magic Pockets remake written in C++ / SDL

Not much to see now, but this little intro:

I like your enthusiasm Jeff, but i personally think Magic Pockets is the weakest game the Bitmaps ever did.

I agree that Magic Pockets is not the best of the Bros games, but 1) Chaos Engine 2 sucks hard!!!! and 2) I still like it very much.

I'd like to remake Chaos Engine too, but it seems harder to do, and I don't have the graphics fully ripped yet. Cadaver would rule too.

The MP remake will be an unextended remake, not like Gods: I'm not planning to create new levels, etc...
It's also for me the opportunity to practise C++ with SDL. I've got everything: graphics, levels, and a big experience from the Gods remake.
I hope I can complete the remake fast enough, and easily... Let's see.

Nice... good that you started with the intro, since that's the most important part of the game

That's what I did for Gods and it worked. It may seem stupid but

1) it's rather easy, quick to do, so results are immediate.
2) it made me code the basic kernel objects (sprites, fadein, fadeout, screens)
3) the game itself will need a level editor first. I'm not starting development without one (but I'll restart from my work on Gods). At least the intro does not need one.
4) If I want to stop now, I can

Too bad I was liking the idea of the Chaos Engine, especially with the work you did in the maps.

actually the work has been already done, check HOL. I think the maps were added while I was looking how to rip them (the files are dated from 03/03/2008).
I was a bit annoyed about that because I have worked for zit, but that's life.

Meh, I still think you are cool

Why C++ this time? I would think you could reuse some stuff from Gods to save time?

All the more reason to make it better!!!
