apoplexy v2.5 released

Postby Norbert » August 11th, 2014, 3:37 pm

I've just released version 2.5 of apoplexy.

The GNU/Linux version is available here.
[Edit: and...] The Windows version can be downloaded here.

Changes since the last version are:
+ Added (optional, togglable) fullscreen support.
+ Added a screen where PoP1's PRINCE.EXE can be changed.
* Fixed a minor event-related bug.

The above screen can be reached by pressing F2 or by clicking one of the extra icons (EXE) in the top right of the main screen.

Fullscreen can be toggled by pressing f or Alt+Enter, and is also one of the three zoom modes (press z several times or click one of the extra icons (magnifying glass) in the top right of the main screen).
Or, start apoplexy with "apoplexy -f" or "apoplexy --fullscreen", as can be seen below.

By the way, setting "Allow triggering any tile" to Y will enable David's modification, and will make it possible to point raise and drop buttons to things besides gates and level doors.
For example, you can then point a raise button to a loose tile or to a spike or chomper.
Of course it's also possible to activate multiple things in a row, by setting the 'next' value(s) to Y on the events screen.

Here is the Windows port.
To make the zip smaller, I deleted the png folder, and didn't include the games.
The DLLs are included.

Note that I am currently using a replacement computer (the main is under repair -- again).
Here, Apoplexy crashes in SDL2.dll with "SIGILL, Illegal instruction", therefore I could not test the program.
The crasher is an SSE instruction, and it seems this CPU does not support that.

Thanks again!
I've updated the first post of this thread to include a link to the full package.

Hm... okay, thanks for letting me know. I'll look into it.
Does it work if you try the latest x86 SDL2.dll from the official website here?
If not, then I guess the default (official) SDL2.dll is not compiled to work with older machines.
In future version(s) I could use SDL_HasSSE() to do a check for SSE support, and quit with an error message if it's unavailable.

You also need to use CusPop to customize the level 1 environment to palace.
The "Set up level environment" section.

[Edit: Since version 2.6b, apoplexy takes care of this for you.]
