Magic Carpet 1 / 2 Reverse Engineered
sub 6 days ago
Hi all,

recently found this project.

And as big fan of the Magic Carpet games (and someone who does not understand,
why there hasn't been any attempts for another MC game or clone) I'm overly
excited from what that already advanced project promises.

As far as I get it, and how this source looks like, it is a similar approach
that the Devilution project took.

Yet, while they say it should build for Linux, I wasn't able to.
Because of some strange SDL dependencies in CMake.

Maybe someone else is keen to try this.

If it works or is interesting enough, it may be also worth an article on GoL.

I mean Magic Carpet is still a lot of fun to play today imho. :)

This takes me back! This was a family favorite, I can remember my father playing. This was from a time when we had old second hand computers that we upgraded - also quite competitively..

I can't help right now, but this does bring back fond memories.
