Concept:
Each player owns one zergling. The beginning of the game allows for different game styles: Teams, Free For All, and Tournament. The same basic goal applies to each mode: Eliminate all opposing forces. Teams can be chosen randomly, or based on join order from the game lobby (Force 1 vs Force 2).


Game Play:
The controls to this game are simple to understand, but difficult to master. To fire in a given direction, simply burrow your zergling. The zergling will automatically unburrow as an explosive projectile flies off in the direction it was previously facing. Point and shoot, except you must point by moving the zergling to face the direction you want. You can shoot in 16 different directions (one for each sprite rotation for a Zerg Zergling).

Team Mode

The game is divided upon two sides. The players on the left must try to kill those on the right, and vice versa. Once all players are dead on one side, everyone is revived and another round starts. The team to win 3 rounds wins the game. The left side's fireballs are orange, while the right side has blue fire. A successful hit is represented by a red explosion.

Free For All

The divider in the middle is removed, and players are able to roam around the entire stage. Rather than a 1-hit-kill system, each player starts with 10 HP, and it drains as they are hit. A hit can vary in damage, going from 1 to 6 in a single shot, based on how direct the shot is and if the player is dumb enough to run along with the explosion. All players have orange fireballs, but a successful hit is represented by a hallucinated explosion (blue).

Tournament

The stage is divided in half, like in teams. Each player starts with 2 lives. The game randomly selects two players and puts them at either side to fight it out. The losing player loses a life, and both players are taken off the stage for the next pair to play. This process continues until only one player is remaining. The player on the left side has an orange projectile, while the right player has a blue one.

Pro map.

Suicidal Insanity -- :P

Suicidal Insanity -- Not that I think that is a good idea
[09:10 am]
Suicidal Insanity -- then it is a real index

Suicidal Insanity -- jjf28
jjf28 shouted: Suicidal Insanity I can't have code saying xIndex for something that's 1-based, to me xIndex is always a 0-based array index specifically, anything else is an identifier ("Id", usually sequential) or key (hash or a fixed-byte abbreviation or something), those are my cues so I don't need to constantly refer to some documentation so I know what to code
I'm just saying have your function 'GetMapTitleStringIndex' return realValue - 1

CaptainWill -- If anyone was considering Hypnospace Outlaw, I recommend it
[01:41 am]
jjf28 -- I think the reason I had it so wrong was cause I could treat it as a 0-based index from section start (offsets actually start after first two bytes of numStrings) so I had my access simplified like that :P

jjf28 -- Suicidal Insanity
Suicidal Insanity shouted: No you don't. you can just change all the getters that give you a stringID instead
