[GAMING] Yeti3D 002 Released

Posted by Eric March on January 21, 2008

Yeti3D 002 UpdateWell that was quick. A new update to Marco Giorgini’s Yeti3D is now available. Version 002 tweaks the dynamic lighting a bit, which makes the level look a bit darker. There is still only one enemy in the game, and he still can’t hurt you, but the little blue, bald sprite (that’s bald, you sickos) has been replaced with a real 3D MD2 model nicked from Quake II. Though Marco states that there is a slight reduction in frame rates, I really didn’t notice any additional slowdown, as it still seems to run at a pretty solid clip. The D-pad and buttons have also been enlarged for slightly easier manoevering, though it’s still ugly; Marco appears to be stumped as to how he should handle the control mechanism. Perhaps you folks should drop him a note and offer your suggestions.

Installation for this version is also a little more convoluted: You still have to copy the main game files to your /Applications folder and set permissions to 755, but there is an additional set of resource files which must be placed in /var/root/Media/Yeti3Dfolder/ and set to 755. Additionally, a bug seems to have been introduced into this version that requires you to turn on flight mode on your iPhone, or disable WiFi on your Touch, otherwise it won’t work. I am sure Marco will sort this out for his next release.

In the mean time, you can hit up this link to download the new version, and as usual you can read the original thread here. click on the image above for a full-sized view.
