GU Fighter - Anyone has it?
« on: July 29, 2017, 02:13:43 AM »
Heya! You don't recognize my name, and for good reason - I'm new here. But I've known about this community for many, many years, in large thanks to the now long abandoned project Gaming Universe Fighter. I discovered this game around 2004-2005, and I have so many memories of me playing it and loving it. I was too young to get it then, but nowadays I see what a beautiful community project it was, and I'm doubly impressed with it!
Out of nostalgia, I've been trying in vain to hunt down a download for the last available version, but I've come up short. Redhaze's website is down and no place else seems to have a mirror upload.

So, I come to you. Does anyone at all still have the game? I've got a real craving to play me some GU Fighter.

If I remember right, a bunch of projects were uploaded to thegaminguniverse website a while back.

Guardian still chats here... tis possible he still has it.
Lastly, maybe on an old hard drive of mine.. but that's too much of a hassle for me.

Nope, sorry.  I lost it when my main external drive died.

I've asked Nightmare if he has either the original or his most updated version.  Here's hoping.

The latest package was put together by Mystara. It's located at www.thegaminguniverse.org/gufighter/GUFighter.rar
Never say never or always. In most cases, there is an exception to anything you can think of that you might use either word in. "Most likely" and "highly improbable" in a lot of those cases would ring true, but not never/always.

Thanks, Rowan!

Now, the immediate trouble is how to get the sound to work again.  If anyone knows how to fix this problem, please let us know.  Someone around here may still have the code for this game.

Then we could work on stuff like character resizing and maybe implementing one or two more buttons into the mix!

Kraetyz, I'll give you the latest version I was working on.  Unfortunately, I don't have anything like source code, I ran into a lot of trouble with things like making the designs I wanted with only two buttons:  Also, resizing and expanding the existing cast was impossible for me to do alone.

Send me your e-mail via PM so I can hook you up to my DropBox where I'm going to be keeping the stuff.  I will hook you up with whatever I can spare.  You would be particularly wise to take my balance changes into account, as the bosses could literally kill you in one hit if you unlocked them in a way that makes Shin Akuma look fair in retrospect.

You can also Discord me at NightmareJames#7794.  If we can get BGM music to work, I would be game to finish Shin Gouki and maybe if I had some help work on resizing some of the stuff (though some chars would arguably have to be cut in any final version).  I just have too much going to be in charge ATM.

I don't know why I'm "the living archive" and making backups is so godly, but it seems to be that way.

Hope this helps.

I had a copy of the code that I got Red Haze to send me (after a long period of trying to hunt him down). The game used some library called MasterX or something like that. I doubt you'll find much support for it in the current OSes. If I can find my copy of the source, I can try getting it ported over to SDL, and if I do, I'll send Nightmare the changes, so that he may be able to do something with it.

I don't know why I'm "the living archive" and making backups is so godly, but it seems to be that way.

You're not. Whatever changes you have, you never sent to me. I am the webmaster, last I checked. I can easily upload anything onto GU's server, if you want to share.

Contact me on Discord Rowan.  I'm busy tomorrow, but I should be able to do a checkdown Sunday and document everything.

I'd be really happy if we could get the BGM music fixed and this running smooth again.

Thanks for finding the code.  Apparently I lost that somehow when my HD crashed.

Holy crap, the game!! :D Thank you guys! I'm all for checking out the source code, though I currently have another hobby project with friends that occupies my free time, haha.

Guardian and Rowan, I created a Discord server that I transferred ownership to Krae.  I would like you two to join so we can get a lot of this stuff cleaned up.

I don't use Discord, so I'll have to look into it. I just woke up (literally), and I'm about to start coming through my archive. Hopefully I'll have better luch with this than I did with Zeo's book.

I have indeed found the source, and as Red Haze told me, it's a mess. It'll take me some time to delve into and see what's what. The sound is handled by fmod. I don't know why it doesn't work, but fmod itself was abandoned in favor of fmodex, and then something else that I can't remember the name of. We'll get it fixed, in time.

I have a project I'm getting started on, myself: a Raspberry Pi powered vending machine being built from the ground up. Got several parts coming in, today, in fact. I call them "Phase 1." ;)

Can either of you replace fmod with fmodex or something else that works better?  How hard is that?  Just asking.
