Laser Hockey DS - January 31 2008

We have added DS-DS wireless connecting. We can't say multiplayer yet because you can't actually play the game against a friend. One player can host, another can join. Once a connection is established, both players should drop into the usual practice mode. Your mileage may vary. Let us know if anyone gets that far.

Internal build: 0.3.1

  • Added multiplayer buttons Join and Host
  • Added DS-DS initialization
  • Extra update when performing screen switches
  • Now drawing right before the V-Blank
  • Added status text on connection error
  • Wireless no longer turns on before it is supposed to

Finally, some links for liblobby as info is hard to come by:

Laser Hockey DS - December

We have put up a December 2007 release of Laser Hockey DS. Due to the holidays, game development took a back seat to game playing so there are only two minor changes from the November release.

The new internal build number is 0.1.7.

  • The scores display on each screen
  • The game goes into sleep mode when you close the lid

To add a spot of good news, there is a homebrew DS-DS wireless multiplayer library named liblobby from MightyMax. We will look into using that for multiplayer in the next build.
