MARATHON:MOTHERLAND

Discuss and unveil current Marathon projects.

Post Jun 8th '10, 02:22

Yes, you read that right.... This is a VERY difficult and tasking project, and due to no support from my freinds, I am doing this on my own.

----------------------------------ITS A TOTAL CONVERSION----------------------------------------------

I need help on several aspects of the game:

-Spriting
-Scripting
-Textures
-Images file creation (No idea how to make one)
-Mapping
-Music.


Yes, I know its a lot.

The Public Alpha (I know that it's a contradiction) is at: http://www.simplici7y.com/items/marathon-m...nd-public-alpha

Note the bugs and poor sprite quality.

THE TROOPER NEEDS A MAJOR FACELIFT TO WORK PROPERLY INGAME WITHOUT CRASHES!



PLEASE HELP, I WANT TO SEE THIS GET DONE IN 2 YEARS OR LESS!

Your zip file you posted on Simplicity appears to be corrupt... or at least it won't open for me. I always download the previews of scenarios announced here :) Perhaps you could just show us some screenshots instead?

This scenario is freakin' doomed.

UNLESS!

Suggestion.
Look up Marathon Squadron, compromise, borrow ShongShong's shapes file.
That eliminates:
-Spriting
-Scripting
-Textures


Mapping is all you.

Suggestion.
Create a solo map that may or may not actually be in your scenario.
Let it summarize your plot and game play but let it ultimately display your mapping skills.
Release the map and then call for assistance in mapping.
That eliminates:
-Mapping

Music, just give up. Drop the idea.
Suggestion.
Use crappy free release music clips of the internet.
That eliminates:
-Music.

Image files for terminals.
Suggestion.
Take pictures of stuff in your backyard, mugshots of you, your dog, and military vehicles etc.
Go onto Photo shop and tint the pictures green and add a static effect to make the pictures more Marathonish.
That eliminates:
-Images file creation (No idea how to make one)

Put it all together. Test it. Release it.
DONE.

Well.... You see.
I am aware that the zip has gone corrupt, I will check out all of the other info.
I don't want to say it's doomed, I am just embarking on a project that is in unfamiliar waters for me.

As for the images creation, I meant the imgA file, not pictures.

Thanks, moppy.

But my main point here was that I wantod to know who wanted to get involved with the project. You will all be credited.

Atque can generate image files--just use it to split one of yours to see what the folder structure should look like.

As it is, you come off like a nobody asking people to do things for you. You need to build a reputation such that skilled people want to do things for you. Why don't you start with a VERY simple project, and build your skills? Say, a Project X map.

Try getting to know the community a little better, too. If you'd spent an amount of time reading threads here, you'd know that this happens over and over again: someone joins and tries to make something way beyond his capabilities, and gets the same advice. You'd also know that you probably don't actually want the help of anybody here willing to help you at this stage in your project.

Also, please stop yelling.

In case you were wondering, laserbrains, this is "Project X".
