I meant as in on the menu screen! We're going to have to display it somewhere, Dude man...

Anyways, it's going to be no small feat, using the alignment meter for almost every single program script, not to mention how annoying it will get after a while.

*Through the deathly silent streets crawls a cloaked man... oh no! Could it be? It's a ninja about to hijack the thread!*

Heh. I hope DM doesn't take this the wrong way, but I seem to be a little better in VB than him. However, as much as looking at the TK code gives me nightmares. It's...scary.....

Baaaack to the topic. Go ahead and make the game, but if you get as far as chapter, uhh, 9, I believe (whenever it was that Kronos popped into existance), I have a special request. Make no mention of my characters, as half of them were complete n00bs, except for Kronos. Even then, just make him a generic hero guy... not the monarch of Kandarin. Guhh.... I feel certain hatred towards my poor characters now after writing that post in the other thread.

Even still, a n00b is a character, and all characters will be added to the game, maybe with a tweak here and there to make them seem either better, more intelligent, or more realistic.

I also wanted to ask Xorbak if it would be okay to put the demo on his web site as soon as it's finished. It probably would look like a copyright anywhere else, so why not put it on the official site?

Moving along, my production is coming good so far. I've finished most of the programing so far with the exception of a few custom-made sprites until DM e-mails me his. 'drannic_lord01@yahoo.com' is my e-mail adress, incase you need to know. (I had to change it before)

I only put my games on my site.  But it would be okay to post a link to it from DALpedia, if you manage to make it to a demo stage.

Well the alignment display on the menu would not be too hard. We could just have a different colour background depending on your alignment (like blue for good and red for bad) and have an If statement for the background.

Then it would just show your alignment as a number on the character stats part of the menu (like it does in Fallout if you play that game).

BTW: This is DM logged on D.Ein's account because I'm at his house.

The intro is looking good!   Cool  slick.

Yeah, about the alignment measurement, I kind of wanted a statistic menu for the game, like in Fable. I also have a few more ideas for the tides of the story line. Couldn't we just take a person from the RP and replace him/her with a custom-made character by the player so that they could have a custom-made name? They would follow the same story, of course, but it would just be altered a bit... Hope that's okay, Xorlak.

Dark Age Legends, the Fall of Romme. Comming soon for PC...

(Note: I have to set that up with DM still... Hope he doesn't mind the title. I thought it was cool... Just thought I'd do a little advertizing.)

Here are some of the amazing fetures I hope to add on to the game:

     ~ Alignment system, like in Fable or Starwars KotoR and KotoR II

     ~ Real-time battle system like in Morrowind, or Oblivion, or even The Legend Of ZELDA.

     ~ Radiant A.I. like in Oblivion... (Heh... that game's the coolest ever...)

     ~ Ultimate character theme songs! (Just a thought...)

     ~ Level up control, like in Fable, or Starwars, or even Dark Age II for that matter.

     ~ Ultimate specializations menu system. (Enough said)

The Fall Of Romme is what is honestly what I was considering to call it.

Real Time BS? No I don't think so, that doesn't fit well with DA or even what I'd want for DAL.

Well, actually some games can let you choose Real-Time or Turned Based! We'd just have the player choose at the beginning of the game.

Fallout Tactics and Star Wars KotOR (I'm not 100% on the second one, because I haven't played either of them for a month, but I know Fallout Tactics does for a fact)

No. But I'm not saying "Let's use the Fallout Tactics Battle System" I'm saying "Let's have two battle systems and the player can choose."

If nobody agrees to that then we should just have a Poll or something to choose...

I have to go with DM's first opinion. Real-time does not work for a DAL-based game. I don't see how it would.

Yeah, I'd agree with DM. The player can choose. That's probably a better idea seeing how some people *cough* Jenia *cough* don't like RTB system style. I can work around a lot with it though, so it'll be good for me. DM, you also have to e-mail me those sprites. My e-mail is Drannic_Lord01@yahoo.com if it already isn't obvious.

Another few things I have to ask you guys:

     - What TK version would Dark Age Legends, the Fall of Romme, use?

     - How are we going to have the player choose their alliance?

     - Should players have alignment-based spells? (just a thought)

     - Will players be able to CHOOSE their spells as they level up, instead of just leveling up and getting standard spells?

     - Will players be able to CHOOSE their class?

     - Will players be able to pick new abilities as they level up? (Starwars KotoR equivalent is feats)

This is pretty much it for now. I hope to see this game get more progress in the near future... Also, just TWO MORE DAYS!!! I can't wait!
