Old friend in a new frock redux: it's EUO in 3d / MOAGL 2021

MOAGL! It's EUO in 3D
https://euotopia.com/files/moagl.zip

0) download the above zip
1) unzip the files in the moagl.zip archive into your existing euo installation folder. If prompted to overrwrite (probably not, maybe models.txt) then do so.
2) run moagl.exe

works on all servers except weekly

README!
i) this 3D euo is not a new game, it is an alternative client which you use to play on the live servers with your existing characters!
ii) moagl installs over the top of your current euo installation, but doesn't replace anything so you can go back to old euo anytime if you don't like 3d or it doesn't work
iii) this uses openGL 1.4 with extensions ... probably every computer in 2021 can run this

Important keys:
* use ctrl-3 to toggle fps mode / topdown mode
* use middle mouse button to rotate camera
* you can also rotate camera with , and .
* you can also position camera with ctrl i / o / u / d but just use middle mouse button
* zoom in & out with mouse wheel
* in FPS mode left click will attack in front of you

Other notes
invert mouse: close euo / moagl, edit client.cfg add the line

Code: Select all

invert_mouse=1
mouse sensitivity: you can change mouse sensitivity with the #mouse command
hit enter, type #mouse
for less sensitivity, try

Code: Select all

#mouse 10 
or more sensitivity, try

Code: Select all

#mouse 90
you can set mouse sensitivity between 1 and 100

Conclusion
It's rough around the edges and probably full of bugs but was a fair amount of work to bring this 10yo relic codebase up to scratch. I had fun doing to tho! But because the codebase is now fully merged with regular EUO I am much more motivated to keep MOAGL up to date.

That looks pretty cool - nice work!
However, I am wondering how you fit 2x2 mobs into the dungeons.

Great work Egg!

This new perspective has forced me to actually play the 3D mode using the mouse and keyboard (I usually just played keys). Great experience, especially with the music. Question: In the SPT guild fort there have been always been a few neutral monsters roaming around. Now those monsters are all hostile. Could this be one of those bugs you mentioned?

Thanks again for all the hard work -- love it!

ah ... that explains a thing - I deleted the func that made them neutral, not thinking it was used anywhere! I'll fix that :aus:
