Kolf: Work on multiple fronts

May 28, 2009

For some reason, I did not update you about Kolf developments for nearly a month, though there is plenty progress: First, GSoC has started, and there is already first progress made by Zeng Huan, Kolf’s very own GSoC student: (It could be more, but we have to deal with internal issues like coordinate systems or how the OpenGL rendering will exactly work.)

First foundations laid for a terrain in Kolf 2

I haven’t been inactive in the meanwhile. Apart from working with Zeng one the foundations of Kolf, I’ve polished the available bits of the editor interface a bit and added storage classes. I’m quite excited about these, even if the results are as unspectacular as Save and Undo/Redo buttons:

The new storage framework pays off.

The exciting thing about the storage solution is that it adapts to any new kind of object. Next on my list of editor features is to make it store and reload the complete editing history, so that you can go back anytime if you made some change that turns out bad.

Now I do not know how to end this blog entry. Maybe I should just stop inside some word, to make it look mo…

    Cant wait…since Kolf is a favorite game and worked well in 3.5, there are major issues in KDE 4 plasma desktop with the new graphics and sound. No sound–other game sounds work– other KDE games work. In Kolf 1.9 ball sticks in wall every other shot and has to be dug out along the length of the wall with multiple tries. It WAS a great game… An improvement that’s really an improvement will be nice.

      Nice to see that people like Kolf. I can assure you that we will do our best to deliver a stable foundation for the Kolf 2.x series by the end of this year.
