    GunBound Beta in a playable state

    GunBound Beta in a playable state
    Hey all,

    Remember when I released 2 beta clients a long time ago here? Well, as expected, nobody did anything with it, so the question always remained (outside of .xfs data mining) how those clients were, since when it comes to screenshots from the GunBound beta, a lot of the game was never archived.

    Today I am happy to inform that both the betas were emulated and preserved properly.

    While I cannot show full videos yet, here are a few screenshots of the betas in action:

    GunBound Beta title screen:


    Beta World List:


    Beta Avatar Shop:


    Beta Cozy Tower




    Beta result screen showing the scrapped 'x Team Win' effect


    Random boomer shot with the earlier beta:


    The more annoying part about the betas is their lack of tunnel packets and lan functionality. It's completely missing, making it available for more users (or even myself), a much bigger pain. Therefore, right now the screenshots and videos I have are limited. Once I am able to play the betas as well, I am writing down all the changes they made in both of them, so it's properly and forever preserved.

    The credits to the work go to jglim who can be found here he also have things such as this GunBound Emulator on his github.

    This is super neat! I really wish I could get into fully modifying this game. I've always wanted to work in a full AI system so you could play with bots offline. Thanks for always sharing!

    That is awesome. Is there a reliable way to import its assets? I would love to get my hands in some more

    Multiplayer is now supported as well. Here are some screenshots. A reminder again that I translated a lot of the game. It's normally 100% in Korean

    it could be more interesting if you shared the broker's packts to see if the broker emulator that is in visual basic will be edited

    Dragon works exactly like the final game, but the sound bytes are not in the game client yet (he's muted!)

    Re: GunBound Beta in a playable state

    Here's some more screenshots from multiplayer support. Maybe someday fully online for short period? :) Also, UI have now been completely translated as well but needs some English polish.









    Full Buddy List support (person was offline so it didn't work)



    Fully English avatar shop:



    Fully English lobby:



    Way too much time spend on this? Maybe. But one thing is for sure, and that is that this beta is now properly preserved.

    Are there any plans to share the emulator? This looks awesome, what a classic. Gunbound was probably my first free 2 play game ever.
