Re: [Starcraft II] Operation: 7734

Damn... looking at those screenshots I realize there's a lot of stuff you can easily add in SC2 maps that would take like 10+ hours to implement in SC1. Maybe I should reconsider acquiring SC2 after all, if only for the custom creation aspect.

Looks good so far, Asgard. Keep it up. :)

Re: [BW] The Malice of Diamonds

Ok, I said there would be another preview on the 20th, so here's one more image for those who are interested. http://img.imgcake.com/theWeepingBoy/previewPNGhe.png As you can see, the idea is to have a transportation system indoors; I didn't want to have teleporting beacons, since that's been used i...

Re: Old & Aging Game Discussion

While we're on the subject of adventure games, I hope you guys have played this timeless classic:

It was really fun to unravel the mistery behind the story. The puzzles were hell, though.

Re: Old & Aging Game Discussion

One obscure, weird motherfucker of a game, Sanitarium. http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_QZjsYyEcc48/TSSLWBeLfHI/AAAAAAAAACo/sDELJPoDN5Q/s1600/Sanitarium.jpg Got this game two days ago. I'm completely hooked. o_o It's funny, I also acquired Grim Fandango with it, which is reputed to be the #1 adventure gam...

Re: [BW] The Malice of Diamonds

PM'd Meta. Looks like I'll have to bother the entire CC staff to get this thing. EDIT: got an answer from RCX. He says that Wargiant's tool doesn't work anymore. Maybe because of OS compatibility? Anyway I wasn't really counting on this material so things will just proceed as planned. Expect another...

Re: [BW] The Malice of Diamonds

PM'd Lavarinth as well. While that might be a bit redundant, the sooner I get my hands on this material, the better. And like Pr0 said it will also benefit other contestants (or at least Taeradun off the top of my head, since he's doing cyberpunk and all). I appreciate the effort, Thalraxal, even if...

Re: [BW] The Malice of Diamonds

Making good terrain is, sadly, a bit of a thankless task though, since it blends in seamlessly. Bad terrain, however, will always draw attention to itself. That's a sad truth for the most part. Unless we're talking about some freaky extended piece with lots of sprite usage, the kind of thing you ca...

Re: [SCBW] Illegal Operation

Also what do you mean by recruitment system? Hiring NPC characters to join your party? Yeah, that's what I was thinking. Like character X has good firepower but requires a sizable amount of money, character Y has healing but low HP etc, and you choose between the options available. Maybe I'm asking...

Re: [SCBW] Illegal Operation

Ha! That looks cool. Nice work.

If I may ask, do you intend to have a a skill system or a recruitment system? You know, RPG-esque stuff?

Re: [BW] The Malice of Diamonds

A little update. I promised a screenshot, so... this is the hangar of the Academy. It's a segment of the first mission, which will depict the arrival of Miriam and her first day on new military grounds, her new home. Mind you, this is strictly terrain and no units have been placed yet, nor any trigg...

Re: [BW] The Malice of Diamonds

The Zerg lost their allure when they were humanised in the fourth vanilla mission. Kerrigan became their representation, and she was mostly human in intention, emotion, and psyche. The Overmind was no longer the focus, and this was a flaw. Quite true. Well at least she made for a fun villain. Nonet...

Re: [BW] The Malice of Diamonds

@Jim Living up to expectations -- particularly yours and Darion's -- is one of the reasons I'm focused on crafting a worthwhile experience. :] The "Zerg Hysteria" thing is just the result of the constant botching done by various novel writers that doesn't even have anything to do with Bliz...

Re: [BW] The Malice of Diamonds

With the official start of the contest taking place, I thought I'd take a moment to describe what my intentions are for this project: PRELIMINARY NOTES The main draw will be the story. I think it's relevant to point out why exactly you -- or anyone -- should invest their attention in THE MALICE OF D...
