I wanted to share a old and groovy app written by myself 2012.
Its a Desktop obstacle Engine
that allows you to have your favourite sprites running on your Desktop.
Windows will be used as "2D Level" for the sprites.
Maybe some still remember the old Windows 3.11 Sheep ? Well this is the next Level of this great app.
The sleeping sheep ... how cute
If iam right the original sheep sprite was made by Tatsutoshi Nomura, sry if i gave wrong credits at this pointUse your own sprites! DoE comes with Sheep, Super Mario (SNES) and Max (Sam and Max) examples
You can use Bitmaps (BMP) or animated GIF files ( "unlimited" animation sprites with gif )
Windows -> 2D Level
App is with german text now, if enough people care, ill make a english Version of it. Or completly rewrite it from scratch.
Project is pretty beta but (almost) bug free so far. it was a fun test project.
its all very easy to use
BUT readme.txt (with some good Infos) is both, german and english.
Adjust movement values to your needDoE works without Installation or admin rights. Simply double click on the exe file, thats all.
Windows is full useable (no screensaver style). You can interact with sprites if u want (drag and drop).
Right click on sprite for a popup menu (because minimized app wnd is invisible).Download link (1.24MB ZIP file - password: doe):
Download works, anyway...maybe a better link follows, if i get some private server web space.
Main states / animations featured:
- Walk left / right
- Fast fly from screen top to bottom ( burning sheep )
- Crash floor / crash into windows left / right side ( while flying )
- Idle ( eat flower ) whatever
- Sprite object ( flower )
- Fall down
- Climb up ( build steps with windows ) / drag
- App was opened / closed ( for example sheep gets big eyes )
- Another sprite moving from right to left side of Screen ( grey sheep )
- Randomly flying sprite over Screen ( Ufo )
- Wake up
Have fun with this nice app
