Gentrieve 2 is a "Metroid"-style 3D action game featuring completely random & customizable worlds.

The year is 3080. Mass Generators are creating everything, everywhere. However, thieves often steal Mass Generators in hopes of creating robot armies & fortresses. Thieves are terrible programmers, though, and their creations become uncontrollably hostile & fortresses wildly convoluted.It is your job to clear out these fortresses & return the faulty Mass Generators. Be warned, when the Mass Generator is taken offline, the fortress will soon implode!

Well, I've been gone for a very long time due to excessive amounts of work, but I've recently downloaded v1.11, and I have to say I love it. Every change has only made the game better and more playable (I am sad about my box-fu being nerfed), though I have noticed a few little issues. Firstly, the glow effects seem to be slightly broken. When active, they can often be seen through objects, and also glitch the map so that walls often have black squares in the center of them (I'll post a screenshot in the thread). Also, when you land after a jump, you seem to bounce forward slightly in the direction you were moving before the jump began, which is slightly annoying when yo make a jump moving north, turn during it and go south, then land and end up bouncing slightly north again.

Aside from that, it's great! Though regrettably I'll probably be unable to do the "raceone" challenge due to term projects and exams being due soon.

Additionally, when loading a game, the "Door not opened" flash goes above the door icon. Pic here

That is actually how I originally designed it to look, but then the flash went around the door icon (which I think looks better), but I'm not sure why that happens (or why it reverts sometimes back to drawing over the icon)... another 3D rendering oddity with the engine, I suppose :-P

The glow effect being seen through walls happens when the walls have some transparency to them (even if it is unnoticeable)... I believe this is a limitation of the jMonkeyEngine glow effect I am using. I'm not entirely sure why the black squares show up on the map, but it is such a small oddity I haven't spent too much time on it (lots of bigger stuff to do!). The bounce-forward effect is from yourself rolling in the air after takeoff... if you jumped left, you'd probably bounce a bit left after landing.

I'll make a shorter contest when I return from my mini-vacation... the "raceone" is a bit long :P

What does that message say? I have a feeling it has to do with incompatible video hardware...

nothing to do with incompatible hardware but i did realise it might just be that i am using a netbook and that of course it's missing certain parts and that of a computer/laptop

I highly suspect your graphics card doesn't explicitly support OpenGL shaders & that is why all jMonkeyEngine games will crash for you. Although, it is interesting that you can see the main menu...

Gentrieve 2 is a fascinating experiment in procedural generation. Gameplay is 3D Metroid-style -- a room-based FPS platformer -- but genre is less important here than the ideas the game presents and the mood it effectively sets. In the style of roguelikes and dungeon crawlers, each play-through provides a unique experience through random generation, right down to the texture of the walls. The aesthetic is refined (dark, retro-futuristic) and I'm constantly propelled by my curiosity and eagerness…
