This is the second game in the BM Elite Force series (not much related to each other). BM Elite Force 2 has been my autumn/winter project of 2012. I started this “tradition” in 2011 where I create a new game in a new (for me) language every year and release it around christmas dedicated to my good old friends when we meet up. This year the game was written in Scala using the Java library Slick 2D (built on LWJGL).
Download binaries from Google Code
Pre-compiled versions for OS X, Windows and Linux is found in the project root (in the folders named OS X, Windows and Linux). If you just want to download and play the game, use the link above (Google Code).
This game is meant to be played with and Xbox 360 controller. You really should use one to enjoy this game (analog precision makes all the difference) and it has the correct color coding. There is however keyboard bindings avaliable if you just want to try it out.
There are some bugs which I know of but I’m not currently not trying to fix them. Feel free to submit a pull request if you wish.
Fullscreen mode and sound doesn’t work in Ubuntu 12.10 as far as I can tell?
Java 1.6+ is required. Everything else is distributed with the pre-compiled builds.
You must specify the native files, for OS X you should provide the following VM option:
This was the previous game which I coded in Ruby with LibGosu.
