1995 - 1998:
I develop games during my studies (see games page). The best is Demoniac-Tris, a "Tetris like" running under Dos/Windows with IPX network support.
I discover Linux. During one year, I develop some utilities to discover this fabulous system.
I decide to convert Demoniac-Tris to a Linux version. I encountered difficulties (langage Pascal ==> C and system Linux/Dos). I decided to leave this project and I would like to create a new "Tetris like", 100% in C and assembly langage, 100% compatible between Linux, Dos and Windows 3.x/95/98/2000/XP.
FlashTris is born.
FlashTris is developed and tested with a Pentium III 800, 450 Mb RAM, Linux Debian and Slackware, kernel 2.4.0, XFree 4.0.2
100% C/assembly langage, compatible Linux - Dos - Windows v3.x/95/98/2000/XP
Optimised: 75% of graphics and sound are written in assembly langage.
Data is included in executable (compressed musics and graphics).
More than 23000 lines of source code (menu: 28%, graphics: 23%, game: 18%, sound: 14%, other: 20%).
Zero high level library used (except svgalib for Linux console graphics).
Graphics are made with The Gimp and Deluxe Paint II.
Program (and bugs…) are free!
Rapass for his fabulous menu's idea.
People who help me, give me ideas, signal bugs, etc.
