My Projects Lang. & Libraries Project Began Last Update Dev. Stage Description
Anti-Aliasing App C++/Allegro 10/26/06 12/04/2006 Final Fun visualization application with a ton of different features. Takes full advantage of your processor (may be useful for benchmarking).

Peruse the readme for a full list of commands. Source included.

Super Dungeon 2 C++/Allegro Early 06 11/11/2006 Beta Sequel to my original IRC-based MMORPG Super Dungeon. Plan on actually finishing this, unlike my graphically-focused FF4-Type RPG.
SNES-Styled RPG C++/Allegro Early 05 11/06/2006 Beta SNES-styled RPG. No longer in development due to the project goal being out of reach given my resources. If I had a dedicated artist, I would surely resume development.
Rock Dodge C++/Allegro 01/xx/04 01/09/04 Final Extremely addicting little game I wrote in C++ using the Allegro game library. Try to beat my high score of 710.
Super Dungeon mIRC Scripting Early 02 04/02/2006 Final IRC-based turn-based RPG I wrote 90% of in Spring of 2002. Features over 25 hours of single player gameplay, a dueling ground for battles between human players, graphical ASCII world-map, class system, magic upgrades, dungeons/caves, 100s of items, 100s of monsters.

Visit #aurous (my channel) at irc.slacknet.org if you wish to play. Go to the mIRC Website to download software to connect to IRC.

Potion Wars mIRC Scripting Summer 2001 12/xx/2006 Final The only way to have any idea what this game is about is to actually play it. Highly popular IRC-based strategy/RPG game.

Super Dungeon 2 tidbits:
Focus on game balance!
ASCII graphical world map
8 unique player classes
4 player party
5 basic stats (Strength, Vitality, Wisdom, Courage, Agility)
Active Time Battle (based on courage values of players/enemies)
Active Time Battle circular display (shows relative positions of turns in real time)
Leveling up system (gain HP/MP/stat points/[skill points-soon])
6 functional equipment slots on each player.
Easy to add new, unique equipment.
Easy to add new enemies.
Poison status ailment (more later)
Basic magic engine almost done!
Adjustable resolution/full screen/windowed modes
Running/Defense battle options fully implemented. Running works 100% of the time currently, but all party members lose 50 energy [energy gain is based on courage. Energy CAN go negative. 100 energy = YOUR TURN. Defending nets a 10% increase in HP based on MaxHP and puts you at 25 energy.

Classic SNES-Style World Map (with mountains, forests, and FLOWING WATER!)
Active Time Battle system
4-player party
5 very balanced player stats (Strength, Defense, Speed, Vitality, Magic)
