*speaks in Wang voice* I love the shuriken.

Heh, okay, that's a new one, somehow I never managed to notice this before, probably because they're thrown so fast. I definitely can't unsee this now :V .

The darts are cooler! :mrgreen:
Funny that they included both assets in the game data and made the differentiation through code. I would have expected they just do an asset replacement for the British version.

That's odd - perhaps it was the path of least resistance for them?

Rather than repackaging the entire game, just change the executable instead?

Well, it means that now we have the ability to make it an in-game option and offer both.

On the subject of widescreen graphics: it should be noted that BuildGDX comes prepackaged with widescreen weapons for Duke Nukem 3D. It might be worth checking out the license in regards to those graphics, as making them from scratch would be a lot of time and effort.

Would anyone here object to moving this topic to the public forum?

A private forum, eh?
I see some personal goals for myself... :twisted:

Thanks for opening this to the public!

If you want to use the widescreen weapons I did for RedneckGDX (the TNT and alien arm gun from what I can recall) you have my blessing to do so. Most of the others were made by Dzierzan and a few by fgsfds.

Dzierzan also made some widescreen sprites for Powerslave which I included in my upscale pack for that game.

Ok, it'll be a bit of work getting a list of all contributors and ask them for permission.

I threw this together earlier today real quickly, but the engine cropped it on the sides to maintain a 4:3 aspect ratio for that screen.

I'll play around with it when I'm back home.

Are you defining it as texture or tilefromtexture?

Tilefromtexture. It loads (I scribbled on it to check), it's just cropped at the sides.
