The initial version 0.1 is also followed by an update (above) that also supports gamesaves.

To quote: Tonight, to celebrate the last binary date of the century. We bring you a update to one.

Simply, it updates memory card support and works on the following systems:

  • 3.55 MFW Retail/CEX
  • 3.41 MFW Retail/CEX
  • 3.15 MFW Retail/CEX
  • 3.55 MFW Debug/DEX
  • 3.41 MFW Debug/DEX
  • 3.15 MFW Debug/DEX

(Note: one uses "state of the art" firmware detection to apply patches needed, spoofing simply can not fool it.)

Notable changes:

  • If you score reaches zero then you lose.
  • Your score increases when you collect the white orbs.

To quote: I've ported the classic homebrew game, "Super Mario War" to the PlayStation 3. It is created with SDL by [Register or Login to view links] awesome fellows.

For those not familiar, it's a 2D action vs game with up to 4 players. You can even have bots with quite good AI! It's a really great game to be honest. I wouldn't have ported it if it wasn't in my interest.

Everything is working from what I can tell. I only have one controller so I can't test multi-player (can someone test this for me, please?) I believe it should work. Keyboards are also supported.

Controls:

  • X - jump
  • Square - sprint/powerup
  • Start - Pause
  • Select - Exit...

141w ago - Today Server Architect Lin Luo at CCP Games has shared details on scaling the universe in the upcoming title Dust 514 for the PlayStation 3 entertainment system which is slated for release in Spring 2012.

To quote: I am a Server Architect on DUST 514 and, in this devblog, I would like to cover at a high level some of the online technical aspects of [Register or Login to view links], including the challenges we have met and the approaches we have taken in handling them.

As a server architect on the project, I am responsible for integrating the DUST FPS multiplayer battles into the EVE universe, as well as optimizing the DUST battle servers to perform even better. Unlike normal FPS multiplayer games, DUST 514 has heavy MMO elements.

And unlike normal MMO FPS games, DUST has heavy interaction with one of the most successful MMO space games - EVE Online! This imposes challenges on what technologies we should use in order to have this level of interaction with EVE, while keeping FPS gameplay as smooth as possible.

While continuing to rely on the Unreal 3 engine for the FPS multiplayer gameplay for DUST, the interaction with the rest of the EVE universe should naturally take advantage of utilizing some existing EVE online technologies. Think about a simplified...
