SVG Database

Secret Maryo Chronicles has lots of nice SVG graphics, which are used as low-resolution PNGs in the game. It's too bad that they aren't presented on the homepage, although they look very good. Well, I took the SVG graphics from the SVN and put them into another folder. I wrote a PHP script that shows the directories and renders the SVG files with the aid of Inkscape, so you can see the pictures as PNG graphics in your browser.

You can have a look at the high-resolution pictures and even download the SVG files directly. Note that some browsers aren't supported (especially Internet Explorer), so you'll need to download a standard-compliant browser like Mozilla Firefox or Opera.

I created that project to show everyone here and out there on this world the variety of this open-source game. There are only a very few games that are based on SVG graphics. Who knows, probably it's the first game played on a 1000-inch plasma-television in hundred years, and the game would look sharp even your eyes are a foot ahead the TV. Anyway, enough philosophized!

Currently the script runs on my own computer, so it is slow sometimes. It would be nice, if it could be run on FluXy's server, but it has to be a root server, because you have to install Inkscape, that renders the SVG files. Note that the graphics have to be rendered once, so you have to wait once for a long time until you see the picture. They are cached then, though.

I had to pick the SVG files myself from the SVN repository, thus they are sorted different there. However, I could link to an always updated SVN directory, where the files were, so I wouldn't have to collect the new SVG files from lots of directories anymore.

Unfortunately some files are missing in the collection, like the Maryo figure (Adobe Illustrator). Furthermore there are some XAR files that I can't render. I don't know whether you can export the files with Xara Extreme as SVG files because I don't have Linux at the moment. Perhaps I'll install it in some months.

I hope you enjoy having a look at your self-created artwork!

Could this be implemented on the official website? It'd be nice to have a page where users could see all of the wonderful graphics away from the screenshots.

It's asking for a password, and leaving the spaces empty doesn't work.
