Open 3Dungeon (v.1.0)
(c) Mruqe Games 2006
is an open-source pseudo-3D engine for 'The Games Factory'. It's able to display a representation of a maze using an oldschool 3D view similiar to those used in classic "Dungeon Master" or "Eye of the Beholder" games. It's perfect for dungeon exploration cRPG games but it can be easily altered for other purposes. It's very basic design makes it easy to use and understand. It also allows it to be run on older PC machines - at least in the regular screensize.
- Five step depth of view
- An automap
- Two screen size modes
- Extensive code comments
- High compatibility
- Works fast
- Works properly even on old Pentium 133 machines
The engine was created using The Games Factory 1 but can be used in any klik game developing software except Klik&Play. The basic version uses Christoper Lightfoot's Window Object extension (gfwnd.gox) provided with the engine. In aplications other than TGF1 either use the safe-mode version of the engine (3Dungeon_compatibility.gam) that is stripped of the Window Object extension or use the MMF2 version ((3Dungeon(mmf2).mfa) which replaces the extension with MMF2 native Window Control object.

You can use it and modify it freely as long as you include Mruqe Games in your games credits. I also would like you to notify me about your project at: firstname.lastname@example.org
The labyrinth is built by placing 3x3 pixel 'blocks' (obstacle background) on the minimap. You'll figure it out
Read the code comments in the event editor to understand how the engine works.
Alter the graphics! I made the walls blue to make you not like them and encourage you to change them
I hope you'll find this engine usefull. I'd really like to see some games made with it some time...
