Augmentinel

By Simon Owen ([email protected])


Introduction

Augmentinel is re-skinned version of the Geoff Crammond classic: The
Sentinel
(aka The
Sentry).

It emulates the Spectrum version of the game for the original gameplay, then
adds the best features from other ports, plus a few modern extras.

Features

  • Accelerated 3D rendering with mouse free look.
  • VR support for OpenVR-compatible headsets.
  • Palette and landscape colours from PC version.
  • BBC/C64/Spectrum/Amiga tunes and HRTF spatial sound effects.
  • Background music from Amiga version.
  • Sky view from PC/ST/Amiga versions.
  • Unlocked the hex landscapes for a total of 57344.
  • Pixel-perfect object selection.
  • All remaining game logic runs as normal.

Building

Building currently requires Visual Studio 2019 or later.

The current code uses the Win32 and D3D11 APIs so it’s not yet portable to
non-Windows platforms. It’s hoped that will change in the future.
