    AmplituDS v3 is now released. A huge update over v2 which improves graphics, feel and adds 3 new stages.
    If you don't know what the game is about, it's based on Amplitude for the PS2... which was created by the team that made Guitar Hero later on.
    The official AmplituDS website:
    http://amplituds.drunkencoders.com

    First off, the boxart.

    Then, a couple of images:
    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    And last, a couple of movies:
    Movie 1
    Movie 2

    Hurry up to the AmplituDS site and get it! :)



    Now, as for the model converter and viewer.
    They both run on the NDS. How's that for portability?
    The converter converts models in the .x format of a certain syntax to a .c file which contains a display list in an array.
    You could use that .c file in your own homebrew projects.
    The model viewer reads out that .c file, and also slaps on textures if you've put that in the same directory.
    Check it out. It's worth it.

    Direct link to the model converter and viewer.

    Example models available (not to be used in your own projects):

    Nice one Dark Knight ez, especially for the model creators: my 3d programming skills never really got beyond VRML and pro engineer.

    Did you copy the amplitudeds folder? It takes like 6 seconds to load.
    I'm playing it right now. It's really funny, sadly it doesn't have a sleep mode [​IMG]

    EDIT: I'm playing the first scene after the tutorial and I have no idea how to play this [​IMG]
    Can someone help me? or....OUENDAN!! or something.

    I've been playing for about 3 out of the last 6 hours. It's VERY addicting and I am in love with it.
    I am on Insane now, and I do believe it could use some more songs (Unless there are other worlds that I don't know of).
    It's pretty easy to play lagman, and I have no previous experience with the original Amplitude.
    When a 'button' comes over a crosshair, hit the corresponding button (Left Middle Right = L, X, R) and when you need to move over to another sample use Left and Right. Read the PDF file included for more information.

    I've got everything down myself, from hitting notes while moving to maximizing double points advantages.
    Such an awesome game, and a custom song creator is most certainly needed.

    One problem I have with it is the lack of proper pausing; You can't do it, you must restart the song if you do. Another is that in your screenshots it shows the 'buttons' looking like sprites and looking alright. While in the game, they seem to be models, which I like much more, but when viewing them from the right side there seems to be a polygon on the side missing completely (possibly to save rendering power?).

    Otherwise, this is a great game, and it is currently taking my Ouendan 2 time...Which is rare!

    nice work man, i remember seeing this in the EZflash comp a while ago, looks like you have made some great development since.

    BTW the boxart looks bad ass!

    Any chance you have a copy of the stage creator? Can't find a link since the forums no longer exist.

    The user hasn't been on since 2011 and the wayback should work
    https://web.archive.org/web/2016*/http://amplituds.drunkencoders.com/
    Actually, I can't seem to find even a remotely decent link, it might just be lost until someone shows up with a working link

    Don't want to direct link the download but main site for the thing is http://www.aaronlindsay.com/

    Link was fixed a few years back on that by the AmplituDS author.
    Fired it through virustotal and it said nothing of note. Added an upload of that here too.

    Author of the stage creator is also apparently still active on https://github.com/AerialX (possibly twitter as well but they have a protected profile)

    Spam, "is this any good?", "I like this" and whatever else is one thing. Asking for a reup of a relevant download for an old piece of homebrew (probably one of the better offerings on the DS at that, and one of the few places on the internet likely still active and listing it) is quite another.
