Morgaelin – Updated to latest libgdx, HTML5 version

Thanks to the efforts of Exodus Destiny, and after some always needed tweaking, Morgaelin has been updated to libgdx 1.9.5 from a veeery old version from around 2013.

One of the thing this allows is having a working HTML5 version, you can check the current, very early version HERE. (GIANT WARNING: DON’T BUMP INTO PEOPLE.. leaving the combat area may cause the process to hang!)

So far the experience with libgdx, at least for web, is not as straightforward as doing JS (thank you,¬†Captain obvious).¬†It uses GWT underneath so it’s compiling Java into JS (teh magic, after all these years still!). OTOH it generates native android programs and multiplatform Java desktop as well. May be after I sink more time into it I’ll be able to do a side by side comparison of it vs Ananias’ stack.

Been done some small work in Morgaelin, mainly in the design side of things reverse engineering the plot based on different walkthroughs, but also worked a bit on adding support for cutscenes.

Exodus Destiny Dragon (a.k.a jucarave) also started taking a look at enabling the HTML5 version of the engine so it can be played in the browser.

We are planning to create a first version of the game going all the way to obtaining the Skull of Quakes
