Description

Void Infinity is a real-time strategy game where you control the planets of a solar system to build a fleet and destroy your enemy.

It has working LAN and a very unique play style from most RTS games.

This game is far from complete and lacks an in-game tutorial (as well as AI) but if you get involved you may get a free version and limited edition ships when I send out the final release.

Void Infinity is supported on all platforms that can run pygame! There are two versions, 2.7 and 3.x.

Current Game Features:  

  • LAN
  • 9+ ships to fight with
  • Planet capturing
  • Fully playable RTS (on LAN that is)

Check out my website for more information. The website contains the game instructions and other useful information (as well as the download) for Void Infinity.

 

VOID INFINITY IS CURRENTLY BROKEN.

I DO NOT KNOW WHEN IT WILL BE FIXED.

Changes

There is now a video that can be found on the website displaying some basic ship battles. (Don't worry, once I have money the graphics will be renovated significantly)

- Over 20 images have been added to remove a large chunk of the Nyan cat replacements

- Multiplayer will now work perfectly (as indicated from tests)

- Made a new and faster loading screen (game loads 4x as fast as before)

- Allowed transport ship events (such as capture planet and pickup credits) to be queued with shift

- Fixed a large variety of glitches

Here's my dillema. In order for online to work properly, all computers must update the game the same way. The largest sink of speed in the game is ship pushing. If you have one game update pushing faster then both games will turn out different and be out of sync. What starcraft 2 does (I assume) is have an engine that calculates events in order of their occurance and somehow manages where units will be seamlessly and individually. What this would allow is variable points of updating. They could take away image updating in certain circumstances if they need more power to update the game at a normal rate. I can't figure out how I could possibly have this kind of pushing without updating all ships at once. I am reading up on Numpy and may use it in the future to attempt to significantly reduce lagg which would allow for a potentially higher framerate and more ships.

Actually, @Jeremy Gagnier, decompilation is legal provided it is for the right purposes (a "fair use"). Also, I own what is *literally* the fastest laptop in the world. There should be a way to get more than 20Hz. Add a setting maybe?

It's capped at 20fps because on most computers the image updating takes ~40ms and the game is still quite visually smooth at 20fps.

Congratulation, nice game :), but too slow, I got 20fps on a laptop with a Radeon 9200. Use OpenGL. My game has accelerated by 50%, when I used glCallList.

Click on the link to the wiki and find the section with the download information.

You can't. Its actually illegal to decompile a pyc file. It's .pyc because I don't want people to have my source code. I plan on making money off of this game at some point and it would be a shame for someone to pick it up and claim it as their own.

How do I convert a .pyc file into .py?

Yes thanks i'll fix it in the next release which should be on monday or tuesday.

The pyc file that claims to be a Python 2.7 pyc file seems to be compiled with Python 3 (it has a magic number of 3180). It certainly doesn't work from Python 2.7.1.
