NEXT MEETING                

DATE:   Monday 17th July 2017
(ROUGOL meets on the third monday of each month)
SUBJECT:   AMCOG Development Kit
PRESENTER:   Anthony Bartram, AMCOG Games
TIME:   7:45pm (although lots of ROUGOL members are usually there - eating curry - from about 6pm!)
VENUE:   Upstairs in the restaurant at The Blue Eyed Maid public house, 173 Borough High St, SE1 1HR.

The AMCOG Development kit makes game writing on RISC OS simpler than ever before. The kit includes:

  • A core library to enable sprite plotting, screen transitions, MP3 playback and much more
  • A tile library to provide a general game engine for games based on tiles
  • A sound library and virtual sound chip: RDSP
  • Game sprites
  • Music tracks
  • Sound samples
Free graphics, music tracks and sound samples are included, plus three games developed using the kit:
  • Mutant Penguin
  • Cyborg
  • Sparky - a simpler playable tile library case study
Sparky is only available with the Development Kit and is presented both as a playable game and development case study. Anthony will walk us through the Sparky example to show how easily a game can be put together using the kit.

If time allows, Anthony will also explain more about RDSP, the sound synthesis system he previewed at ROUGOL last November, and show the gameplay of Cyborg and Mutant Penguin. The kit and the games will all be available to buy on the night if you feel inspired!

The usual arrangements

Admittance is free and everyone is welcome. All meetings benefit from video projection, so everyone should have a great view.

The Blue Eyed Maid is easily accessible by public transport from in and around London and the south east, and serves a wide range of hot and cold food, alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks.

To be informed about future meetings, please join the mailing list. Everyone on the mailing list will be kept informed of these and other ROUGOL initiatives.
