Quote from: "Dude Man"
Quote from: "Drannic_Lord01"
Issue 1: What are we going to use as board tiles? Xorlak ruled out using his stuff, and I'd feel bad about plagiarizing anyways. Besides, we're bound to come up with our own somehow...


Um, if you've downloaded the new toolkit, and played around with the animation wizard you'd find it a lot easier to make animations with tilesets know. Plus it saves A LOT of space. Making them all individual bitmaps for each sprite is a pain to do and it's unnecessary now. Wink


I actually meant 'board' tiles. I've got no problem with animating the tiles anymore, actually. What I really have a problem with is trying to get some for grass, buildings, caves, etc. I meant getting actual tilesets for those.

Wow, didn't really see that neato tile wizard. That's actually pretty badass. That was really the only problem I had with tk3...

Anywho, on to more pressing matters. I would like somebody other than me to make a menu system, seeing as how I'm not so great at making those. I just flat-out suck when it comes to menus, and I don't want to convert the ones I made from tk2. Those kinda sucked anyways. Anybody up for menus? Also, if anybody does get around to it, here's what I'd like to have in there; just some basic stuff, feel free to throw in some ideas. Team effort ftw!

1.) equipment and items (duh on my part)
2.) alignment meter bar
3.) health, mana, and experience bars
4.) a little help on the level up thingy (I'm still not too sure what we're doing with that just yet, any ideas?)

Well, that about covers the basics that I need, plus 2 extras. Any other ideas?

On another cool note, my e-mail for some reason can't send .wav or .mp3 files, so I've decided to try and make a Myspace band. I know, it sounds cheesy, but I can't really put them anywhere else and/or I'm just too lazy to try anything else.

Here's the url:
http://http://www.myspace.com/dranniclord01

In case that one doesn't work, try this one:
http://http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendid=401052478

Enjoy listening! Once I get more songs up there, it'll at least LOOK much better. Meh, I'm workin' on it, don't pester me. Also, unfortunately, I can only upload 6 songs, so that'll cut off some of the ones I want to put on there. I'll just stick with the ones I think that are the best.

There is this which can be used to help us with the menu. I checked it out a little while ago, seems useful. If you still don't want to do the menu, I might be able to make one.

You and me I think are the only RPGcoders here, actually.Unless by some twist-of-fate Xorlak wants to help us. But I doubt it. Heheh.

Awsome, thanks for the advice! Also, if you've down;oaded the file as well, do you have the .pdf file that came with it? My Adobe Reader is being retarded and closes the moment I open it... do you think you could convert it to a notepad file and e-mail it to me?

It's alright if you can't, that might be asking too much... Also, did you check out the music that I have up so far? (On the url's in the previous post)

Hmm, it seems to be doing the same thing for me. It wasn't before though.

But yeah, those are some awesome songs, I like 'em.

Okay, so far, I know we've got these things covered (if not, I know we can make them quickly and easily from here on out):

- Step One making "FoR" -
Menu System
Character Sprites
Music (working on my own)
Board Tiles (working on my own)

Here are some things we still need to work on, or at least I think we should after we know we're finished with the previous set:

Step Two making "FoR"
Scripting the story from the "FoR"
Spells and abilities
Status effects
NPC Dialogue (should come easily enough)
Factions, Guilds, and Empires
Starting quests
Main quest

Alright, that covers the first two steps of making the game, or at least the ones I want to get out of the way. I think step two might want to be split into two sepparate steps. Anyways, this isn't all "Do this first, then do this." I'm not about to order people around, this is a team project. I just wanted to set some prioraties straight. Please, if you have any comments or ideas, share them STAT.

Thanks!

The Factions, Guilds and Empires should be easy enough since we just have Romme and the Dark Empire at the start. That feature sounds to me like this might become too MMORPG-esque without the MMO...

You can leave one 'M' on there for massive. (Heh...)

Any who, I think I've got an idea as to how the game's gonna role out. Instead of playing an already made character, you'll make your own and tie it into the other characters' storylines. but I do want to narrow down the races to four, which would be as follows:

Lizardman
'Dark' Soldier
'Regular' Soldier
Mage

Maybe we could make the character's separate stories as different games, or even later expansion packs? Well, I'm really into the custom character thing, so that's deffinately good for me. what about you guys?

Four sounds good. I think the Lizard Man and the Dark knight should start with the Dark Empire while the Mage and the knight should start off with Romme. But I think it was planned earlier for you to be able to choose to switch sides throughout the storyline.

I'm also thinking maybe the mage/knight could replace Patrick's storyline, as well as having his own stuff. Since he was a pretty minor and all.

1) Yes, progress has been slow
2) It usually takes longer than that
3) Don't be an asshat
4) Don't spam

1) Haha
2) No it doesn't
3) No
4) No

Very Happy

I'm mostly just killing time here. The product is finished, there's nothing to test, and for the most part, there's little for me to do. While I'm at it, I'm checking the forums once or twice per work day. Nobody seems to be posting, so I'm trying to entertain myself as best as I can.

Umm, yeah games usually do take more than a year to make. Of course you wouldn't know that considering you've never made a game with the toolkit, so shuttie Razz.

A good example of a game that took over a year to make would be Dark Age 2.
