## AmigaOS4 

AmigaOS 4.1 Port by HunoPPC with the Amiga French Team 2024

Important: OpenGL renderer with MiniGL Library (no software)

A big thank you to Samo79 because this port for minigl would never have been
made if he had not insisted :-)

Use glewMGL port and code for minigl by HunoPPC 2024
Use SDL2 port by Capehill

IMPORTANT!! If you use hack GUI please check your DEVS/MONITOR/"driver" for add
all new resolutions, thanks  

First release 1.0.0 AmigaOS4
* Added GUI for start a new prefs on live (important !! it's an hack)
* Added Icon created by me
* Fixed loading texture with glewMGL
* Fixed fullscreen mode on glewMGL
* Added KPH counter on screen (thanks Samo79)




## Running

This repository does not contain the assets (textures, 3d models etc.) required
to run the game. This code mostly assumes to have the PSX NTSC data, but some
menu models from the PC version are required as well. Both of these can be
easily found on archive.org and similar sites. The music (optional) needs to be
provided in [QOA format](https://github.com/phoboslab/qoa). The intro video as
MPEG1.

Download the datas here : https://phoboslab.org/files/wipeout-data-v01.zip

The directory structure is assumed to be as follows

```
PROGDIR: # the executable
wipeout/textures/
wipeout/music/track01.qoa
wipeout/music/track02.qoa
...
```

Note that the blog post announcing this project may or may not provide a link to
a ZIP containing all files needed. Who knows!

Optionally, if you want to use a game controller that may not be supported by
SDL directly, you can place the
[gamecontrollerdb.txt](https://github.com/gabomdq/SDL_GameControllerDB) in the
root directory of this project (along the compiled `wipegame`).



## Ideas for improvements

PRs Welcome.

### Not yet implemented

Some things from the original game are not yet implemented in this rewrite. This
includes

- screen shake effect
- game-end animations, formerly `Spline.cpp` (the end messages are just shown
over the attract mode cameras)
- viewing highscores in options menu
- reverb for sfx and music when there's more than 4 track faces (tunnels and
such)
- some more? grep the source for `TODO` and `FIXME`

### Gameplay, Visuals

- less punishing physics for ship vs. ship collisions
- less punishing physics for sideways ship vs. track collisions (i.e. wall
grinding like in newer wipEouts)
- somehow resolve the issue of inevitably running into an enemy that you just
shot
- add option to lessen the roll in the internal view
- add additional external view that behaves more like in modern racing games
- dynamic lighting on ships
- the scene geometry could use some touch-ups to make an infinite draw distance
option less awkward
- increase FOV when going over a boost
- better menu models for game exit and video options
- gamepad analog input feels like balancing an egg
- fix collision issues on junctions (also present in the original)

### Technical

- implement frustum culling for scene geometry, the track and ships. Currently
everything within the fadeout radius is drawn.
- put all static geometry into a GPU-side buffer. Currently all triangles are
constructed at draw time. Uploading geometry is complicated a bit by the fact
that some scene animations and the ship's exhaust need to update geometry for
each frame.
- the menu system is... not great. It's better than the 5000 lines of spaghetti
that it was before, but the different layouts need a lot of `if`s
- the save data is just dumping the whole struct on disk. A textual format would
be preferable.
- since this whole thing is relying on some custom assembled assets anyway,
maybe all SFX should be in QOA format too (like the music). Or switch everything
to Vorbis.
- a lot of functions assume that there's just one player. This needs to be fixed
for a potential splitscreen mode.


## License

There is none. This code may or may not be based on the source code of the PC
(ATI-Rage) version that was leaked in 2022. If it were, it would probably
violate copyright law, but it may also fall under fair use
¯_(ツ)_/¯

Working with this source code is probably fine, considering that this game was
originally released 28 years ago (in 1995), that the current copyright holders
historically didn't care about any wipEout related files or code being available
on the net and that the game is currently not purchasable in any shape or form.

In any case, you may NOT use this source code in a commercial release. A
commercial release includes hosting it on a website that shows any forms of
advertising.

PS.: Hey Sony! If you're reading this, I would love to work on a proper,
officially sanctioned remaster. Please get in touch <3
