I was working on sprite rotations for the game, and thought: Let's see if there's something interesting on the internet.
I found an interesting program written by XenoWhirl called "RotSprite".
It produced the best rotated images I've seen so far. The only problem was: No Source Code!
He did describe a little of how the algorithm works:
To most of us, "the more detailed version" is a lot of "mumbo-jumbo" (Lots of extra calculations and math and.... stuff) so I decided to try a more simple aproach to it and see what results I could produce.
And Lo And Behold! I came up with something very similar with good results:
As you all know! "Sharing is Caring!" Therefore I'm now releasing the Source Code & the Binaries for Linux & Windows of this algorithm and the program!
Updates will come with time, but for now you can give it a go!
You can download The sprite rotater with binary + Source on the menu to the right.
Until next blogpost!
