Easter Eggs

There is an easter egg if you beat all six levels.

Source To recompile there is a batch file that must be run in the data directory to convert the .bmp to .h files.

  • Notable items
  1. See BibLib/BibSound2.cpp and BibLib/BibMp3.cpp for a simple background mp3 + sound effects mixer
  2. See BibLib/BibWiiInputDevice.cpp for a nice wrapper on the Wii Remote, Nunchuk, GC Controller functions
  3. See BibLib/BibFrameRate.cpp for a way to get the timing required for sprite animation and Frames-Per-Second calculations.
