Old projects - reposted

This is one of the main projects (it is actually the main project) I made with Game Maker a long time ago (this project is from 2006).
I decided to follow some requests and reworked some of my old projects (I had some fun working with the GameMaker once again) and now I'm reposting them here.

This a 3D RTS (realtime strategy) engine with a level editor which was never really finished.
Some longtime members might still have seen one or another of these ancient posts:



This project is also related to the Game Maker 3D Terrain Editor which is really just an updated and optimized version of this engine's terrain system.


Because of the limitations of this board (only 3 images..., pictures are worth thousands of words, why not have more of them?)
I put pictures, the download link (fully working, vista compatible, compiled exe. Partially reworked version of the engine and editor as found in the first topic referred to)
more and info and videos on a website:

Download Game Maker 3D Rts Engine And Editor
 

Download now available!

Videos
See under "Videos" on the Game Maker 3D Rts Engine And Editor Website (double click embedded videos to watch on youtube).

Screenshots

I'm still (though the project is quite old) open to any comments and suggestions. I hope you like it.
Thanks for your time
- Paul

Pls fix it

What map? Can you post the file? The editor or the engine?
Maybe it's still creating the files (the first time you run it, it creates .vtl files for th .obj's...

and release the open source as promised

I never said I'd release THIS open source

I ran the game engine GM 3D-RTS.exe. First of all it forces you to select a file wit *.MAP. So I select map file in the folder maps. Then the game gets stuck. It stays at 1% and dosent load.

Click the image!!!!
Posted Image
After this screen it totally froze. I tried it couple of times and even waited a long time but just 1% stayed on the loading bar.
Pherhaps something wrong with the file. Can you pls download the file yourself and see whats wrong.

Master@ I dont understand all the maps seem not to load. When it says: Loading tree model it gets stuck. Please download the files you uploaded and check theme out. Thanks.

Are there other windows XP users with the same problem? <_<
Is there any windowsXP user that managed to play the game as in the youtube video?

Master Xilo @are you there?

I will report you the Troubleshooting possibility’s :P


-The file host you uploaded corrupts the file.
Use the one I pm’ed you it and reupload it.

-Something went wrong when you made it Vista compatible.
Upload the original one that can be run on Windows XP.

-The tree model is wrong so that GM cant import it.
Make another tree model which is GM compatible.


Ihope this helps

Master Xilo@ I love RTS. But this one sucks. You know why? I never got the chance to play it.

It gets stuck at 1% after selecting map :P
Pls fix it

Maybe it's still creating the files (the first time you run it, it creates .vtl files for th .obj's...

Both dont work I also tested the editor today. It doesent work.

Ops, my bad about the old topic reply. :P
Anyway, could you get a new host? Or a mirror? Cause the current host is blocked by OpenDNS("file storage"(weird reason to block)). Use Box.net or something.
I'd love to try this game :unsure:

@ alex21,
Could you please stop posting all this useless crap?

This all works fine for me and is not reproducible.
Does anyone else have any problems with the host or the program itself?

I accidentally replied in the old RTS post.
Anyway, I have something called OpenDNS, a free DNS server that blocks unwanted websites and unfortunately it sometimes blocks the useful sites.
I'd be really happy if you could upload it on a another host like Box.net or something. :P

This game does not run on Vista or XP.
After realising that this game does not work on Windows XP. I Vista tested this game on a friends ultra fast PC with a super video card.

Lets see what happens if we try it on Vista after a failing it to run on XP....
1st step: After unpacking the download run GM3D-RTS.exe. Click the Image below.
Posted Image


2nd step you have to select map. Click the Image below.
Posted Image


3rd just keep waiting and waiting forever.
Posted Image
Yes when you see this screen you can wait forever because the game is stuck.


After multiple attempts to run this game on Vista we kept Jeremy’s pc 2 days long on just because someone came up with this theory:

(the first time you run it, it creates .vtl files for th .obj's...

Today Jeremy got angry and phoned me that he must switch of his PC. Then I realised that the theory of waiting was busted. Also the Editor is not working.

Paul@ your replay was not nice while I was trying to help out the bug of this game.
I just reported this topic to the Admin I told him that this game is not running at all on XP and Vista. + your youtube video is fake. Now it is up to the admin to decide if this fake game works at all or not and if there is any need of this game topic.

This game works on my XP operating system, and I don't see any bugs, its not a fake game at all.

Really top-notch work, could be better though.

You should add more characters, and make them be able to gain experience and become stronger and such.

Keep it up!

Is this a playable demo? If so, where is it?

I downloaded the package from your website, but the zip archive didn't contain a .exe file (once I unzipped it).

EDIT: Nevermind... sorry. My security system blocked it. I see it now.

Anyway, it does seem to run on my XP system. I loaded one of the maps and watched a battle scene. But I can't figure out what I'm supposed to do.

Well you make your own map first and then load it using the engine.
In the battle, you can control your army using the mouse.

I know see what alex21 means. I'm running Windows 7 RC and I can't run the game(compatibility mode doesn't help).

@ alex21,
I still fail to see the usefulness of all the bug reporting, since it's the same thing all over again( good thing is that you posted images though :( ).

I'd love to be able to play this game( I can, I'm just to lazy to download it on my other computer :D ), so please try and fix it( DLL issue maybe? )
Also, please get another host that has less pop up ads :P

Look up what the possible arguments are for sprite_create_from_screen() and change the arguments that are currently there ?

i found the error its this code

brushalpha=sprite_create_from_screen(0,0,256,256,0,0,0,1,0,0);

and also this one

sprite[i,n]=sprite_create_from_screen(0,0,256,256,0,0,0,1,0,0);

but i dont know with wich code i can replace it because i dont know any codes in gm8
iam 80% new to gm8 but i know allot about how to make a game in it just not 3d codes and such

Never mind i solved it for ppl who get the same error
delete 0,1, on both lines and it wil run like a charm

thank you for making this its awsome also its verry user friendly

but the only thing thats ruining it is that u cant save youre map

wich is critical for newbs like myself
because we dont understand much of the script language yet
and its pretty hard to be able to create a save option wich is compatible with game maker if you dont know how to do it
so i hope in youre next update you wil add it to youre tool and then i wil using it
because this is sofar the best one on the forum for beginning game makers.
if you add a save map option in it and also explain or make an example of
how you can add the map youre world room then this would be an epic tool for game maker.

The actual download link on that 2shared download page is where it says: "Save file to your PC: click here", I know, there are many misleading ads on that page that say "download" too, that host is not ideal.
I'll reupload the package and post a direct link.

@Izaak

this is the error i get when i start it in gm8 , windows xp

I think you're on the wrong topic. You're talking about:
http://gmc.yoyogames...1
I guess. The sprite_create_from_screen command changed from gm6/7 to gm8 and the file was actually saved in gm7, didn't think about that compatibility issue.

EDIT:
- Reupload done. It's now a direct download link.

hello

i found a solution for the program for people with the "non-loading" error.

right-click on gm3drts --> properties --> compatibality --> check "run with 256 colors" --> click on OK --> run the program --> when the message comes, press yes

after that the game engine should run.

With the editor you have to do the same if a message comes with" an error occured when running the game"
