Wacky Wheels code snippet
Since everybody seems to be asking for source code all the time here is a snippet from Wacky Wheels.

It loads the Dope fish frames and Joe's Belch voice file and finally plots the fish.
Joe thought I could have picked a better Belch as he gave me several to work with. However we were about to ship and I got
my own way in the end

Love all those global variables. Hey remember it's 1994 here!!!


void load_dope(void)
{
if(!dope_loaded)
{
lib_find("DOPE.SP");
lib_read(gigdat,11895);
if(playeng)
{
lib_find("BELCH.VOC");
lib_read(my_voc,3481);
}
}
dope_ptr=gigdat;
bubble_ptr=gigdat+11520;
dope_stage=0;
dope_frame=0;
dope_y=199;
dope_x=120;
bubble_on=0;
bubble_x=176;
dope_time=tickframes;
dope_loaded=1;

}

void plot_dope(void)
{
bsp=dope_ptr+(dope_frame*5760);
scx=dope_x;
scy=dope_y;
dep=72;
wid=80;
if(scy<=199) plotclip();

if(bubble_on)
{
bsp=bubble_ptr;
wid=25;
dep=15;
scx=bubble_x;
scy=bubble_y;
if(bubble_on==1)
{
scx++;
bubble_on=2;
}
else
{
scx--;
bubble_on=1;
}

if(scy<=199) plotclip();

if(bubble_y==110)
{
bubble_on=0;
}
else
{
bubble_y-=2;
if(bubble_y<110) bubble_y=110;
}
}

switch(dope_stage)
{
case 0: dope_y-=8;
if(dope_y<=112)
{
dope_y=112;
dope_stage=1;
dope_time=tickframes;
}
break;

case 1: if(rtdif(dope_time)>=16)
{
dope_stage=2;
dope_frame=1;
dope_time=tickframes;
bubble_on=1;
bubble_y=dope_y+37;
play_my_voc();
}
break;

case 2: if(rtdif(dope_time)>=20)
{
dope_stage=3;
dope_frame=0;
}
break;

case 3: dope_y+=4;
if(dope_y>199) dopefish=0;
break;


}


}

Well any language is good as long as you
can express what you want to do with it.

I am getting very sentimental these
days. If only we could all go back to creating video games in our back bedroom.

Hey Blair witch scared the hell out of hollywood, hopefully the same will happen
in this business.

The guys at 3DR couldn't care less - it's not really their game. They just distributed it. Beavis Soft did all the grunt work.

Hey! Cool!
Nice of you to drop by Andy. Just a few questions.

What did you think of Wacky Wheels? Were you and your team pleased with it over all?

What are your thoughts on Mario Kart 64?

Any plans for a sequel?(I had to ask! )

Hi Ajaxx,

We were pleased with it and I have to say that Apogee did make it a whole lot better when we went into Beta. The main problem was Doom was out and people wanted blood!

The PC game players were,and I suppose still are, mainly young male adults who really didn't care to much for furry little animals driving lawn mowers!

So from a commercial point of view it wasn't so great.

However we feel really proud of the game and I still get a kick that thousands of people out there played it and liked it.

I really like Mario Kart 64 it's just so well balanced.

Well we would love to make a sequel but are too busy trying to make a living! Over the last few years we have been doing a lot of 3D modelling and Multimedia stuff.

This picture is actually from a QuickTime movie but that's a bit too big to download. Shaun,the original Wacky Wheels artist,did
a mock up of a new Kart and a new Aardvark character that we are using in a interactive childrens book.



I think we will always stay with the kids mainly because I am such a big kid

Cheers
Andy

Well you are right there!

When we actually were about to develop the game we went to a local Go kart track to get a feel for the driving experience.

However I don't understand why they got so
mad when I started throwing hog's at the
other drivers.

Re: Wacky Wheels code snippet
Cool. Thanks for answering, Andy (Or Ancientcoder if you prefer).

I remember I used to play Wacky Wheels against my little brother(and get trounced). I liked that when you drive in water, a periscope rises. That was a stroke of genius. You're still visible, so it's fair, but not too visible. It was espescially good in battle mode.

I was real glad that this game was made because I remember how much fun everybody was having with Mario Kart on their Super Nintendos and I only had a computer with no game of that type around for it.

It would've been great to get a game similar to Mario Kart 64 for the PC, but you're right. Most people nowadays won't pay attention to a game unless it has an instantly recognizable pop-icon or over the top Violence. Sad but true.

Thanks again.

LOL!

Well the Aardvark is called Arnie and he
has a bunch of Termites he looks after.
(Role reversal)

Otis however may be a distant cousin We actually did some work for the BBC and they
thought the guy who invented Otis might like
us to something with the character when they
saw Arnie.

Sadly auntie Beeb withdrew Otis , so now
he is sat gathering dust. However he could
make a guest appearance in the interactive book

Yes Wacky was mainly developed in the UK. However I went over to Texas for a few months and developed some of it over there.

I nearly boiled to death over there! Scott
took us in his car round Garland and if it
wasn't for the air con we would have melted.

The artist was in Norfolk (UK), I was in
Lancashire the musician was in Mississippi
and the publisher in Texas! And somehow we
all managed to communicate over a 9600 baud
modem using terminal emulation

Now I live near Cambridge (UK) and Shaun is still in Norfolk.

Were are you from?

[img]images/icons/shocked.gif[/img] Source code? Posted?? Here?!?!? LOL! I though I'd never see that happen! Even though he said that it was just a joke for everyone asking for source code(I'm wondering if half the people that ask even know how to program [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img] ). Before I saw that he worked on WW I thought that somebody had somehow gotten the source code(government conspiracy, j\k [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img] ), and posted it here. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

Anyways, I'd really like to see a Wacky Wheels 2, maybe with 3D graphics like Mario Kart 64, but I know that it's most likely "not gonna happen". [img]images/icons/frown.gif[/img]

btw Ancient Coder, do you still work at Beavis Soft(I know that the name was changed, just can't remember what it is, what is the company called now?)?

Any chance of getting more WW code? Interested in the network stuff too!

Its fantastic to have you posting! WW was a truely fantastic game, and even though their was some 'stolen' code Skunny Carts just didn't cut it - didn't have the art, music, "feel" atmosphere etc.

BTW did you work on any other game projects for Apogee?
