Starmine has a strange concept behind it, and while I'm sure most understand what I was meaning, it's usually a good idea to do a little illustrating.

Hence, this short "demonstration" animation of Starmine.

I was randomly browsing through your gallery. Ah, I remember seeing this demo before. It's seems like a neat concept. Especially for the Wii.

Remembering a rumor I heard about the Wii having been hacked and homebrew code being run on it, I decided to search around. Homebrew code has been run on it, but only as a proof of concept. It's still going to be a long time until we see homebrew games taking full advantage of wii hardware.

However, it looks like some people have already gotten java and, even better for you, flash to support the wiimote in wii's internet channel browser.

It looks like they've also released code to allow people to develop flash games that make use of this also.

You may be able to make this a wii game yet, if only a flash-based one.

That's all great to hear. :3

But I'm not much of an Actionscript programmer, so it kinda hinders my progress ATM. X<

i like the "dash" function

Yah, it adds something to make it more exciting. You just have to make sure you don't dash into a wall. X3

That is one cool enhancement of the traditional games like it.

Hey that looks really fun, and looks somewhat easy to program, well, at least most of the code!

Some have assumed, and some have tried. X3

[link] addicted to writing this today, so...this is what came out. Didn't spend way too long on graphics, so...
Also, it's riddled with inefficencies (like in the can get slow), so it'll slow down after a while. Oh yeah, and I didn't program in death (nothing can get close enough, anyway ._.;...) or the special graphics for dashing.

Interesting! Nice little "tech demo." :3

I've noticed Starmine only rotates slowly when the mouse stays still, but speeds up when you move.

I'm not much of a programmer, yet I can imagine the dashing effect might be hard to program. Perhaps making the center chassis into a separate object so the death programming only affects that. The blades keep a (X&Y=0) thing so it stays around the center. Whatever the blades don't destroy fast enough (or at all) makes them a poor boundary for the center.

I don't even KNOW if I should mess with the concept of "Red-Wave..." (Yes, I've thought up another ship, though the idea is still being fleshed out). X3
