Hephaestus For Mac Publisher's description
from Mark Damon Hughes
Hephaestus is a freeware computer role-playing game construction kit (often called an "RPG maker").
Hephaestus is a freeware computer role-playing game construction kit (often called an "RPG maker"). A map editor is included, and scripting is done in the Java programming language. Hephaestus is written in Java, and therefore runs on every platform.
You've wanted to make your own computer role-playing game all your life. Hephaestus 2 makes it easier than ever to make any adventure you can imagine. Use your own art and sounds, or use the standard libraries. Make "static" maps with the map editor, or create your maps entirely with code - even making mazes and dungeons that are different every time you play. There's never been a better time to start writing your own CRPG!
Hephaestus 2 now includes the post-holocaust horror adventure, Umbra! After the Great Old Ones return to reclaim the Earth, the few survivors cower in towns hidden in the wilderness, or have given themselves over to madness and worship of inhuman gods. You start out alone and helpless, but can rise to strike back, and perhaps return Earth to humanity!
What's New in This Release:В· Just released a minor bugfix, which should take care of a bug in Sun's JDK on Linux; this doesn't appear to affect Blackdown JDK or any other platform.
В· I've been getting bug reports with JDK 1.4 on Linux. If you're having problems in that environment, try dropping down to JDK 1.3. I develop on Linux in Blackdown JDK 1.3, and it works flawlessly there. Hopefully I can nail this bug down for the next release.
System Requirements:В· Java 1.3 or later
В· 1024x768 display with 16-bit color depth
Program Release Status: Minor Update
Program Install Support: Install and Uninstall
