Okay, cool let's use that potential then...
Might be, but I like the one with 7 colors the most for the Keen games. The four color ones original came through the hardware limitations. It's also nice though and agreed with HDX not so much different.Zilem wrote: ↑Sun Jan 07, 2018 18:05
Yes, which can be seen for the most part the in the tile texture.
But somethings stands out due to too many colors of shade or washed down colors
notable: Slug statue, Stone hut, Sand Dunes background, Forest Tree background
(although a heat over the Sand Dunes would be great!)
Here is a comparison:
A: 4 Colors - Original
B: 7 Colors - Changed Zigzag-shadding into a new color, adding 3 new shades in between the original 4 - manual edit
C: 231 Colors, Holy macaroni! o.0
BTW I don't think they look that different in HDX
Character selection I had in mind and the code is pretty much prepared for that. I can do that as next task if you wish. Basically I only require an extra menu and that's it. The character have no special abilities so the engine loads the sprites depending on one how one variable is set anyways, like it does with the other players. Nonetheless for multiple players I think every player should choose it's sprite when the game starts.Zilem wrote: ↑Sun Jan 07, 2018 18:05
Indeed, I don't see a reason to add a large roster of character's available without a character selection
which i don't see a reason to implement before online play have become a thing
so that can stay on the shelf till then, and instead add 2 additional player characters to Keen 1 and 4 Specials.
That is no problem at. If you send me some sprites, I will put them in. How about let CG rotate them in place by 90° when shot up or down? Or do you prefer different sprites at all?Zilem wrote: ↑Sun Jan 07, 2018 18:05
Very Interesting, getting a bit more similar to the Doom source engines ^.^
where you only need the .wad Data files: Scripts/Sound/Sprites/Maps.
sounds like possible Bio menace support down the road.
Hmmm... one of the thing i would like to see The Invasion of Vorticons remakes is the zap shot
to play it's animation vertical (use a variant sprite) when hot up or downward, instead of Left and right, Possible?
I'll find and pack the sprites if you want tinker to with them.
I once had the idea of shooting diagonally, like using the mouse to point, but I think that would be very game breaking and too far from the original. What do you think?
Don't worry, I will More videos will come showing more features. About Keenish there is no special mission brief or plan. I think it will come and merge into one piece someday. Depending on what will be liked and what not and how this community will evolve and what my time will allow to do... I like to think how Freedoom came to be. It is a nice alternative to Doom. Or maybe someone has a great idea which would run on CG. I'm open for that. Or my wife or a friend comes up with some ideas about our crazy life and we put it into the game .Zilem wrote: ↑Sun Jan 07, 2018 18:05
I believe the Co-op feature could attract the attention of users, over defaulting to dosbox on PC
Maybe also get some of the youtuber's in on the Idea as that will show to their viewers that Keen co-op
Shikadi-Network, XrackProject (Both Germans) and Hairmonster12 ('Merica'n)
Maybe you'll show us more of your idea for you Keenish game in the future? ^.~
The Dress is nice and if Princess Peach can run through levels with a Dress, why not her?Zilem wrote: ↑Sun Jan 07, 2018 18:05
From Keen 4, yes
Outside of the Council page, whom hide in the story text and the ending sequence of keen 4
(he is also technically in Keens Dream intro story, and is just as useful...)
but she is much more remembered, giving her role for giving Keen Hints: where to find the Wetsuit and the Secret Level.
Anyone who have completed Keen 1, knows who Spot is
which also makes Spot a natural choice for Invasion of the Vorticons in co-op
Keen talks to the Council page once arriving in the shadow lands
it is likely the Page wants to tag along, to make up for calling keen "Captain Keen"
The question about Lindsey is really; Should she wear her Dress as in Keen 4 or Pants like in Netkeen?
On the other hand pants should be better for running in jumping in generaö. I like the pants a bit better, but only a small bit. What do you prefer?
