Groundtactics.com - Returning to it's roots

I've had this domain for years. It's suited different purposes for me at different times but since the introduction of a wife and kids in my life it's kinda grown stale.

So recently I've decided I'm going to try to return this site closer to it's roots. While I doubt the quake 3 clan this site was founded around will ever re-unite, I'm bringing this site back to as close to those roots as I can. I'm a fan of gaming and that's what I'll be making clear here.

xxOVEmu - An Emulator for The Omega Virus

June 03, 2015, 11:59:06 pm by Ed | Views: 1444 | Comments: 2

I made it and finally released it.  An Emulator to replace the central computer in Omega Virus.  More info on this original 1992 electronic board game of awesomeness can be found here:  https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/3086/omega-virus

The Emulator uses a client/server model so you basically host a game to start.  Hosting a game was an essential design decision because I wanted the emulator to work with tabletop simulator.  For something like Tabletop simulator to work right, netplay is required so all players can interact directly with the emulator regardless of location.

In the near future I'll be adding a 'Lets Play' to show a full game played in Tabletop Simulator with this emulator.

A video preview of the emulator being used in Tabletop Simulator is here:

xxA trip back to the 90s

May 19, 2015, 03:18:34 am by Ed | Views: 1034 | Comments: 0

So recently I've become a bit obsessed with old tabletop board games but don't have the room in my home or the budget to collect the mountain of nostalgia I so desire.

That being said, I've stumbled across the wonderful tabletop simulator.  I immediately got a 4 pack so I can send extra copies to people I know who would most enjoy that stuff with me.  I've found a ton of games I used to play and every day people are adding more.

Unfortunately, one game that keeps escaping me is "The Omega Virus".  Tabletop Simulator doesn't do anything complex like the central computer portion of Omega Virus so it's pretty much a dead end.. or is it?

It turns out I know quite a bit about programming.  I've decided to make an emulator for this old classic.  It'll handle the dirty work so Tabletop Simulator can do what it's best at and well...  simulate the game board ...
