Brick Space 3D Breakout type Game.

Postby peteym5 » Thu Sep 01, 2016 4:42 am

I am in the processes of porting several programs over to Irrlicht and Irrlicht Lime that were written in Visual Basic 6 / Visual Basic .Net. I decided to start with one of my smaller games that is called "Brick Space" It is sort of a 3D break out played inside a large cube. Balls can bounce in all 3 dimensions. You Control a Paddle with a mouse that is on a plane right in front of the camera.
I am putting up a "BETA DEMO" of the game for now that only plays two levels. I am considering putting that game up for market, possible digital download when completed.

[Edit] I Created an account on SourceForge and submitting the game there in ZIP format .https://sourceforge.net/projects/brick-space-windowspc-game/

This is first of 3 games I plan on porting into using Irrlicht Lime.

I would appreciate some people download it to beta test it and provide some feedback.
Learning Irrlicht 3D is a work in progress for me.

Where is the source code? Just asking as you are using sourceforge and if you release software there without the code you are going against their terms of use.

I am working out how to make these things profitable. I believe I can ask for donations if I post source code. I could also find a free webpage somewhere to post a demo of my game.

So there are conflict of interest issues of posting source of something that is under copyright and a product I am intending to market.

That's kinda what I guessed and pretty much why I had been asking ;-) I'm just trying to give you a hint to the terms of use you have agreed to when you chose sourceforge as your provider.

Usually releasing the source is all your decision and it's also fine to use Irrlicht in closed source games. But sourceforge is _only_ for open source projects. If you host there then you have to give out the source to anyone who requests it or you are going against their terms of use. If you do not want that I would recommend removing your project there and look for another hosting provider.

Or just release the source - that's certainly also fine :-)
