Tube2020

Recommended Posts

I am trying to burn this game but having no luck.  I used Jiffi to convert the COF to .CDI, but then when i use ImageBurn it says "File Type Not Recognized"  I even tried changing it to an ISO and it says the same thing.  

 

Seems like Disc Juggler no longer works with Windows 10.  Tried to burn over on my mac, same thing, "File not recognized."  Anyone have any luck making CD's recently, what am i doing wrong? 

 

EDIT:  I just burned Rings to a CD a few months back with Imageburn and had no problems doing it.  Think this final upload might be a corrupted file.  Can anyone confirm?

Any chance Tube SE and Tube 2020 could be put on a "tube collection cart" and released?

Somehow I missed this one before. Really neat! Kinda reminds me of crawling around inside tubes as a kid at arcade-playground places like Discovery Zone.

I just converted the .cof file to a .cdi with Jiffi and then burned it in DiscJuggler (in Windows 10) and ... it works on my Jag CD!  Awesome. 

 

As for the game, the concept is really, really cool.  I like this kind of racing game a lot and this one looks and plays well.  The only issue  is that the game is really short, it feels like more of a techdemo than a game.  What's here is awesome but it's very easy and I beat all the tracks in both gravity on and gravity off modes in about half an hour.  Once you get used to the trick of how the controls work, that you have to let go of the accelerator to keep speeds above the speed you go by holding that button down, the game's easy and fun.  So yeah it's short, but this is a little game by one person and having something that's this fun and nice looking on the Jag is awesome.  It's always fantastic when Jag homebrews use graphics that actually push the hardware beyond Amiga/Atari ST-level stuff, as far as I've seen so far it's rare for a homebrew to see polygonal 3d like you do here!  The tubes look cool and the game moves nicely fast.  Oh, the music's great as well.

 

That said though, it's definitely praise that playing this mostly made me want more -- best time saving (something Tube SE also needs!) to give you more to do in the game; maybe some kind of progression; more obstacles and tougher courses later on; maybe an option for multiple laps in the courses; etc.  But anyway, what's here is quite fun, I enjoyed it.

Nice! I'll have to mess around again today.

 

When I try to install Disc Juggler in Windows 10 it just keeps saying "Restart System Now" over and over again even if I restarted already.

Mine worked fine when initially released I used jiffi and converted the .cof to the ULS reboot starter And then it works fine in my Jag CD. 

 

As for the cover I'm stoked there's an insert for this now! Unfortunately I now don't have access to the laserjet printer I had at work last year so I don't have a way to print this insert now!

Very cool @DrTypo, there hasn't been many 3D homebrews.

I have been fantasizing about making a game similar to the 1979 Tailgunner (Cinematronics) Vector arcade game with flat shaded polygons.

(would look a little bit nicer than the original wireframe graphics)

 

The polygon count would not need to be high, but I haven't been able to find a library that I can use with C for this

(most open libraries for the Jaguar focus on 2D graphics)

Disc Juggler is driving me insane.  Won't install on Windows 10.  Tried troubleshooting and Windows 7/8 compatibility mode settings.  Aha!

Actually just used Universal Extractor for Windows 10 which circumvents the need for an Install and just gives you a folder with the program files and EXE

Tube SE is one of my favorite homebrews. A DrTypo anthology would be amazing. I still haven't played Fallen Angels...

I like the sound of that!!!! (Hopefully it's not just reassurance that my place in the GD line will come 😜 )

All of Dr. Typo's games are awesome! Definitely an anthology with Rings, Tube SE, Tube 2020, Gem Race, and Fallen Angels would be amazing!

Nope, has nothing to do with the Jaguar GD.  :)
