Real Heroes never Die!

Posted by Geit on May 23, 2013 - 14:15

Some say 2013 is the year of some guy called Luigi! Nah!

2013 is the year of Rockford!rockford

Back in 1987 first steps were done to create the perfect BoulderDäsh game on a C64. Later first version got released by using bulletin board systems.

In the year 1996 the game did his first quantum leap. BoulderDäsh was released with a complete new GadTools GUI, a music player and a build in game editor with construction set.

2003 the next version jump brought with BoulderDäsh RTX another big jump in quality. Beside classic hardware, for the first the game time supported graphic and sound cards.

BoulderDäsh Shockwave pushed the game play even further. By using Playstation and other usb game pads supporting rumble, BoulderDäsh dragged the player even more into the cave. This fifth version was released in 2008.

Over the past years screens were getting bigger and the systems got better, faster and new technologies were supported, which could improve the game play. The small game window of the original game, or should I say the stamp size icon looked nice, but was simply to small to be played with on a FullHD screen.

In 2013, this will change! BoulderDäsh Resurrection is not just a simple update to increase the game resolution. Version 6 of the game got rewritten from scratch. Not a single line of the old source code was used in the new code. This is a total remake of BoulderDäsh with an already very impressive feature list:

  • 16.8 million colors
  • Unlimited resolution
  • Unlimited number of animation phases.
  • Unlimited number of graphic formats (Reggae support)
  • Unlimited number of audio formats (Reggae support)
  • Unlimited number of music formats (Reggae support)
  • All elements are now animated (stones, earth, ...)
  • No limitation of the play field
  • No limitation of the number of players (Party mode, one by one)
  • 100% system friendly
  • Full screen and window mode
  • 100% Magic User Interface (MUI)
  • 100% localized
  • Import of C64 and Atari construction kit files
  • Import of old BoulderDäsh game files
  • Import of old BoulderDäsh cave files
  • Import of old BoulderDäsh solve files
  • Import of old BoulderDäsh hi-score files
  • Joystick/Gamepad/Keyboard support (Sensors support)
  • MUI based game editor
  • MUI based and fully animated cave editor
  • Record and playback of cave solves.
  • Build in music player
  • Soundtrack with 5 Tracks composed by Ruben Monteiro. (+ a full Stereo remix of each track)
Since during development was focused on modern features without drawbacks, BoulderDäsh Resurrection will not run on classic hardware anymore.

Since the game files are still compatible and the classic version still works everywhere, BoulderDäsh V5 will stay available for download. Export functions (if needed) will allow backward compatibly with such systems, unless new features are required.

To be precise BoulderDäsh Resurrection will be released exclusively for MorphOS V3.3 or higher.

Happy Birthday Grunch!

Posted by Geit on Oct. 5th, 2012 - 2:06

Yes, Grunch is available for more than one year. It turned into V1 a few days before the AmigaMeeting 2011 in Bad Bramstedt, where it was shown officially for the first time.

What happend since then? Grunch was very successful. Not only the database which grew up to more than 200 pakets, but also many developers, which use Grunch as a platform to promote their software products made it a winner. At least one developer will join with his database shortly, so be prepared for even more Software.

Grunch logo

Beside some minor code issue in september, which was completely my fault, the non centralized database system worked like a charm and without any further problems.

Many people blasphemed, bitched and had no confidence Grunch will be accepted by the masses, but they were proofed wrong. Not only to keep a system up to date, Grunch provided a new unique way to inform all users about new software products without any delay using the simple linked database technique building a bridge between developers and users, which was accepted quite well.

Several developers decided to create own databases, which are pre linked in the internal database, to give the user direct access to their software pools. Several ideas and wishes came up during the last year and many of those wishes where implemented during the last 50 Grunch updates.

Thanks to all people supporting and using Grunch. You made it possible.

NetPrinter V1.15 released!

Posted by Geit Feb. 9th 2012 - 18:00

NetPrinter allows printing using a printer connected to the network.

This driver supports RAW and LPR printing and provides a fully featured preferences utility, which allows an easy configuration. The MorphOS version contains a preferences module which appears in standard system preferences.

Since NetPrinter caused many confusion in the past: NetPrinter does not replace the printer driver! NetPrinter is just an additional transport protocol like usb and parallelport. If the printer rejects to work with usb, parallel or serial, it also won't work using NetPrinter.

Beside the normal Geit.de download, NetPrinter is also available via Grunch.

Changes since V1.14:

  • The 68K preferences name has a different name.
  • Multi printer support was broken in prior preferences tools.
  • Added NETPAR mount script for classic system provided by Ernest Unrau. Thank you!
  • Added proper NETPAR mount script for MorphOS as well.
  • Many small changes and optimisations.

Important Note!

Posted by Geit on Aug. 31th, 2010 - 0:00am

Geit.de is back! Rockford

After more than 5 Years and several gaps where the page wasn't available, Geit.de was switched off in August this year.

Countless people asked about the reason and showed that this site is regular visited by the community.

Geit.de changed server and domain provider during the last month and was only available through a fall back home server.

This month without Geit.de was used constructively. It all started with a new logo and ended with a complete make over of all 100 (!!) Geit.de sub pages. Some sections were enhanced, reworked and improved. Thanks to the new look and design future changes and providing new content will be much easier.

Links pointing to Geit.de's sub pages should be checked. It was taken care about not breaking any links, but in some cases (mostly the meeting pages) it simply wasn't possible without overhead, so it was dropped for a clean restart. In addition to that, the new pages use CSS for the design. This provides an easy and flexible way of maintaining the pages. With non CSS compatible browsers the pages will still provide all information, but without all the decoration and eye candy.

Thanks anyone who supported Geit.de during the last years. You ensured this pages survival.
