Description:

New levelpack "Learning ABC"

JAG is an arcade-puzzle 2D game similar to KDiamonds, Cradle of Rome, Big Kahuna Reef etc.

The aim of JAG is to break all of the target pieces on each level, and to do this before the time runs out.

Except Qt 4, it requires xrandr, SDL and SDL_mixer libraries if building from sources (Windows installation already includes all the necessary binaries to run).

Hi!

After some minor changes (Makefile), it compiles under Mac OS X. Linking seems impossible because of use of QX11Info class.

Due to a nasty problem in qt4, acceleration is broken. However, there is an alternative. Run it:

jag --graphicssystem raster

It will be noticeably quicker. It may even autoplay its thing faster than I can choose a pair and the choice "takes" more often.

Try it.

Thanks for the hint!
Unfortunately, we cannot see any benefits of such a call with our local machines (acceleration just works fine here).

But could you please try to do the followin thing: instead of command line call, make the 1st line of main(..) function in main.c file
QApplication::setGraphicsSystem("raster");

If this will work fine for you as well, we incorporate this change into 0.2.4 release.

I would not put this line into a distribution copy just yet. The raster is not really stable enough. Performance enhancement is maybe 50% in this game.

Anyway, the inclusion would need to be something like:
if ( want acceleration && dri available ) {
// set to dri
}
else
if ( qtversion >= 4.5.0) {
// set to raster
}
else {
// set to default
}

I went to the forum. Lo and behold, the bug discussion was on the same problem. Some silly score and "all levels finished."

The recommended removal of ~/.xlabsoft/jag did not work.

Redoing sudo make install (worked for one correspondant) did not work.

Anyway, clean up the messages here. I will use the forum even though I never learned Russian :-)

This is a unique and fun game. Great!

Latest and greatest: Installed version shows no level packs, gives a funny score pane and does not play. When run locally on the "bin" directory, has 50 default levels, plays fine. Fix?

I played levels 1 and 2. Level 2 has complex enough animation so it may not respond to mouse clicks in a timely manner. The threading and response needs tuning since the game "plays itself" while the player plays. Acceleration will probably help (once the firmware problem with the old matrox card is fixed).

Thanks for your post!

Regarding level packs - currently there are only 50 levels included, packs will be issued a bit later.

Could you please explain the problem more in detail? Which OS do you use? JAG has been tested on Windows XP and Vista, and there are no problems seen after installation.
