Fixed water interaction, re-wrote code, added sound effects.

WASD for movement
E for Actions
Space for Jump
Left CTRL for duck/dive

Sound effects added. I should note that one main reason that led to the shift was horrible problems handling audio I was having in the Mod version, and the sound limits.

Sounds are all mono, 22khz, 16bit.

Currently you have footsteps, splashes, drips, landing, and swimming.

Water has -hopefully' been fixed, you shouldn't fly through the world by accident anymore. Some minor fixes to the map, had some invisible walls and vanishing objects.

A HUD is now present and you can collect coins. Currently monsters are not scripted to do anything yet, and neither has combat been started. Should be next on my list now that I've dealt with water and getting much done in adding the sound effects.

I have to say that this isn't really all that great even for a "tech" demo. I do have to say that this is about the best thing that has been made with Ken Silverman's Evaldraw but it still isn't up to much. I think that an upgrade to the Voxlap engine would do this game more justice. Or even just keep with the original voxelised Duke3D

Voxlap wouldn't be a good transition, I've worked with it and it requires a lot of C coding. The only step up I have is using what was released of Voxelstein on sourceforge, but still more C coding.

Ken himself says Voxlap is inferior to his newer renderer, which supports multi-threading and multiple cores.

I'll stick with Evaldraw, keep in mind things are still pretty early on. Also duke3d has some serious sound and clipping issues that are now resolved with Evaldraw. I can also play full MP3 quality music and sound using FLAK format without a hit on performance. So I think I'll be sticking with this for now. The end product will be compiled with some libraries in C anyways.
