Swingball 2 v0.1

by ThatOtherPerson

ThatOtherPerson's Notes
Here is the first and very early release of Swingball 2. Unlike its predecessor it is available not only for Wii but also for PS3 (with a PC version forthcoming).

There were some really cool user made levels for the original Swingball that did things I hadn’t even thought of and I’m looking forward to seeing how people take advantage of the new stuff in this game.

There are now blocks that can be swung from but not walked on (they aren’t solid). There are also tiles that will change the direction of gravity when you come in contact with them.

I haven’t begun it yet but I plan to make a WYSIWYG editor which will make it even easier for people to create their own levels.

There is a lot left to do. The game currently just consists of a single test level.

WiiMednafen is a partial port of the Mednafen [1] emulator.

Emulators supported:
-GameBoy/GameBoy Color
-GameBoy Advance
-Game Gear
-Nintendo Entertainment System (NES)
-Neo Geo Pocket
-PC Engine (CD)/TurboGrafx 16 (CD)/SuperGrafx (Fast version)

It should be noted that the Virtual Boy emulation included with this emulator is much improved over WiirtualBoy. Most games now run at 100% speed without frame skipping. These improvements are due entirely to Ryphecha (Mednafen) who optimized the core emulation code in addition to eliminating idle loops on a per game basis.

POWDER 116-1

by nsin

Descend into the depths of the dungeon until you reach the foul daemon known as "He who the author cannot spell consistently", or, Baezl'bub. When you have slain Baezl'bub in heroic combat, or, if Baezl'bub dies in any way, retrieve his black heart and bring it to the surface world.

Nine months since the last release, so much for the weekly release schedule POWDER started with! You will notice that at least it has maintained the same size release, minor fixes and a new spell. There is a compromise for god-induced flamestrikes - you get a warning now so they are less just an insta-death out of the blue.
