Socoder -> Cobra -> Halloween 2D Demo

Wed, 31 Oct 2007, 16:37
Here the Latest Release


I like to hear positve and negative feedback

p.s. yes there will be some slowdown during the demo for some reason depending on your pc spec.

I am trying find very good hosting uploading files for life where I can keep all my demo in.

I can't even download it in my country, according to that site. Post screenshots, so I actually know what I'm doing before I click your link, and also get a better file hosting service.

Wed, 31 Oct 2007, 16:55
Same here.
Wed, 31 Oct 2007, 16:58
OH BUMMER...I thought it work all over the world.

Have you got better hosting files that can download in all country.

There you go


Hope you like it

And screenshots? Sorry, but rarely do I download something unless I at least have some vague idea of what it is.

It not a virus! It a COBRA 2D Demo that I have made =)

I took a screenshot, if you want one that badly

Mind you, I was running it in wine (linux) so perhaps the windows version might look a bit different.

Hey, Hotshot - what happened to those bitmap fonts you worked on? Were they in there?

Ahhh on window...the bitmap font work but for wine linux...I am surprize there is no bitmap fonts

Did you see the wavey FX image?

Wed, 31 Oct 2007, 18:48
There the screenshot

Strange, thats the first time Wine has had any major failure with Cobra programs. I'll have to check it on Windows later!

Screenshot looks cool

Dandelion Wine Hobo.
I hope you can fix it.


I like this. The whole program
and the imagery involved. The personage
looks like a close up shot of the Second Rider
of the 4 Horsemen of the Apolcalypse.

The music sounds cool but
perhaps some moody,morbid music.
Like especially organ music playing in the background.
With a macrabe skeleton like laugh or scream.
Just the mouseys thoughts and suggestions.

It's a good start hotshot. There ain't much going on though.

Also, something is wrong with the "i" in your font. Too much of a space after it.

Keep at it

I still like this 2d demo of a screen saver type.
Its really cool.

But please change the music from a techno...
I'm afraid his bones would come off!
Again, how about a slow movin moody organ music
to the tune of Rob Zombies' More Human than Human.

Well done

Any idea as to why it slows down though as you described? I'm just wondering if it's anything to do with the sort of timing method you might have used.
Fri, 02 Nov 2007, 09:13
I think I ave made mistake and the reason why it is had slowdown is because I put LimitRate( 10 ) which mean 10 FPS which I should change to Either 40 or 60 FPS.

Ooops, yeah, that would do it

I like the slow down.
Makes the effect more weird and creepy too.

hmmmmmm....perhaps a timed sequence of
a silhoutte pattern. You know like when you used
to ride on the ferris wheel or even on the merry go arounds at he carnivals and circuses.
It would frst start slow and then eventually speed up
and then after awhile slow down and even stop.

Something definitley Wicked This Way Comes.
And Long After Midnight.
