Further releases

Code Tasks

  • properly GPL'ify the supertux-editor (COPYING file, GPL headers, etc.)

Sound and Music Tasks

  • Improve the sounds
  • Compress music more. The 40 MBytes of music make up two thirds of the source tarball.

Graphics / Sprites

  • Create SuperTux idle animations (stage1: blinking with the eye, stage2: tipping with the food, stage3: scratching the head)
    • I've added the code for idle animations, we just need the graphics now. The blinking animation already exists, but it needs some tweaking - sik0fewl 06:25, 16 June 2008 (UTC)
    • [1]
  • when Tux dies he can fly behind blocks instead of in front of them, drawing order bug
  • Tux isn't centered properly to his collision box
  • repair jump Tux sprite (to dark black) (Grumbel)
  • do a 32x32 top-down water animation for the worldmap
    • use these tiles [2]
  • finish cannon graphics, also snowball graphics, death, etc (Grumbel)
  • Snowman graphics (death animation, turn-around graphics) (Grumbel)
  • Owl graphics (basically placeholder graphics right now) octo 07:53, 9 March 2010 (UTC)
  • some decor for ice tiles, cracks and stuff (Grumbel)
  • finish icecrusher graphics
  • deep snow tiles
  • icicle graphics for decoration purpose
    • [4] an okay job, but not the best -CT.da'Bomb
  • think of a new way to represent the exit area (snow molted with smooth ground below or so)
  • add turn-around animation for smart-snowball

Editor / Developer Conveniences

    1. directly accessible powerups
  • finish editor improvements (MatzeB)
  • editor doesn't align Cannon and Krush and Krosh properly (grid is wrong)
    • I think it's using the 0,0-position of the image to align objects, not the hitbox. —octo 07:50, 9 March 2010 (UTC)

Meta / Organization

Menu System / Game Configuration

  • add gamma control to the option menu, see: int SDL_SetGamma (float redgamma, float greengamma, float bluegamma);
  • make aspect ratio option menu thing work
  • need to properly auto-detect and set aspect ratio on games first startup (i.e. on a 1280x1024 screen aspect must be set to 5:4, not 4:3)
  • option menu entries are currently not in sync with gameconfig
  • add scale-with-window option to magnification or something like that
  • make left/right change an option in the menu, let enter apply it (needed for fullscreen)

Levels / Scripting / Gameplay

  • level startup needs a fade-in, so does game startup, level abort and a few other places
  • add all fade-in/out effects to DisplayEffect
  • camera vertical scroll doesn't work properly in a small window (i.e. it doesn't move at all)


  • aspect ratio init code (Grumbel)
  • think about peeking in relation to large screen size
    • Maybe disable peeking if the resolution is at a certain size or greater? Tux would just be centered. sik0fewl 18:34, 30 April 2009 (UTC)


  • fix and cleanup all the enemy names - see Milestone 2 Design Document/Enemies for new names
    • A beginning has been made by renaming Kamikaze Snowball to Snowshot. There's not much consensus about the other changes though, see Meeting 2010-02-27. --octo 07:01, 5 March 2010 (UTC)
  • AngryBonusBlock: Have a bonus block type that comes to life when tux jumps against it and then chases Tux
Break the "only good stuff from bonus blocks" and "same look same behaviour" rules? --WolfgangB 01:27, 25 May 2008 (UTC)
Secret Maryo has a poisonous mushroom... if they break the rules, why not us? Also, bonus blocks already have varied behaviors. --Mathnerd314 04:23, 7 September 2008 (UTC)
  • create an enemy type that doesn't just walk straight into one direction, but does something different depending on Tux direction (ninja)
    • Is this a dupe of the Crystallo proposal for week 4? - sik0fewl 19:58, 15 May 2008 (UTC)
      • No, this enemy is intelligent (reacts to Tux) --Mathnerd314 20:43, 19 March 2010 (UTC)
  • Mr. Bomb: let the fuse burn after one touched it
  • Flying Snowball: Remove randomness, should be periodic and predictable
  • Flying Snowball: Change timings to match that of Milestone1
  • Flying Snowball: smoke effect for the motor seem to be to seldomly triggered

Milestone 3

These are items that can be postponed until milestone 3, but are still welcome for milestone 2.

Code Tasks

  • separate lisp reader, tinygettext and other libraries properly out of SuperTux

Editor / Developer Conveniences

  • optimize the build process, building SuperTux currently takes ages (I don't see how we could speed it up..., MatzeB)

Levels / Scripting / Gameplay

  • fix console command set_game_speed() so that it doesn't slow down the console
  • replace "you found a secret area" with a special sound (Wansti)
    • why I like it the way it is. -ctdabomb
  • General: Do something about the walking speed, feels wrong at the moment, maybe a bit slower


  • create SuperTux .xo Activity for OLPC (Grumbel)
  • Have particle throwing starting enemies (fireflower like)
  • add sprite scaling
