Agenaworld v1.1 for the PSP Released, Now With Multiplayer!

Agenaworld1231

Edepot has just informed us of their release of Agenaworld v1.1. This version now includes MULTIPLAYER via IR!! The Graphics on this gameHere is what they had to say:

This time if you have another PSP to duel with it supports multiplayer! I think this is the first homebrew game that supports multiplayer (currently only two players max now). It uses the PSP’s infrared port. The following is a snippit about it and some parts from the readme that you can probably use.

AgenaWorld 1.1 has been released. Its the first multiplayer homebrew game available for PSP 1.0 and PSP 1.5 firmware. You can download it at http://www.edepot.com/game.html

It works, but you need to resync by pressing the triangle button now and then, or slow down your cpu speed (an option in the game). But it is pretty fun blasting each other. This game looks the the “asteroids” game Ceres (also on that site).

Agena World is a little like the “homeworld” pc game on the PC. You can donate via AgenaWorld website to get registered and you can get more mission objectives. The author will add feature to visit planets and walk around if enough people register too! see the readme.txt file inside.

Note that if you get stuck in a corner, try hyperspacing out (press the right trigger to hyperspace). one of the best looking homebrew games available for PSP.

The following is from the readme file…

** INTRODUCTION **

AgenaWorld Version 1.1 July 25, 2005

Runs on PSP firmware 1.0 and PSP firmware 1.5 AgenaWorld is a classic space shooting game similar to (and a little aiming towards) the “Homeworld” PC game, but has its own unique features. Press Triangle Button in game to see mission objective. Supports multiplayer (PSP to PSP) via infrared. See below for more details.

There is only one mission objective that you have currently installed. Registered users get special unlocked versions of the game with more mission objectives and ability to research advanced technology. You got this program free, so consider encouraging the author to make even better games by donating and registering.

With enough donations, I will add the ability to visit different solar systems and planets. You will also get the ability to land and “walk around” on them.

To register, make a donation by visiting the Agenaworld website…

Please visit the website for latest versions and other fantastic homebrew software for the PSP. Including LuLines and Ceres, an “Asteroids” type of game.

If you do not want to donate, you can purchase some art products at http://www.edepot.com/taoart.html as a token of appreciation, but will include a free registration if you ask for one.

** MULTIPLAYER MODE **

**********************

If two PSP’s have AgenaWorld installed, just aim the infrared ports at each other and start the games on both. If the other player is detected, they will show up in the radar. To manually sync or to resync after no signal, you can slow your CPU speed down until they show up in the radar again. A better way is to press the triangle button (status screen) until they show up and close the window when they have reappeared. This is the first release, so the timing is not that stable yet. Just use this method whenever the other player loses sync. Otherwise, the slow CPU will work, but the game slows down a bit.

When both are in sync, you can shoot at each other and see each other. Note each player can’t destroy ufos or asteroids of the other player, only the spaceship of the other player. In this version, you can’t collide into each other.

***************************

** Adding your own songs **

***************************

It is possible to have your own music playing in the background instead of the default Agenaworld songs. You just have to convert them to wave files (with extension .wav). Make sure they are stereo channel and 16 bit, while the bitrate can vary. Not that the program won’t load the song if it is too big in size, so convert it to the lowest bitrate possible and work your way up to a higher bitrate testing to see if it loads in the game. The files a.wav, b.wav, c.wav and d.wav are the song files. up.wav, down.wav, left.wav, and right.wav are the sound effects.

************************

** SCREENDUMP FEATURE **

************************

If you press the “SELECT” button the program will provide a screendump of the current PSP screen to the installation directory (which depends on which firmware that your PSP has. For firmware 1.0:

“/psp/game/agenaworld/screendump.bmp”

For firmware 1.5:

“/psp/game/agenaworld 1/screendump.bmp”
