The Winter Project is finally finished, after hours of beta testing and testing. It features 7 levels, 81 high res textures, and is the first ever scenario to be merged with Treellama's Atque. It's story is totally unrelated to any of the Xmas projects.

Thanks everyone, I've been looking forward to this.

Damnit Damnit Damnit!!! It seems my tiredness last night made me overlook one tiny little detail... the second to last level "Faktree" does not teleport you to the last level after you have completed the mission... either skip that level and cheat yourself all of the guns on the last one or just wait for me to post up a working version.

Hey.
Don't get the wrong idea.
I'm very excited about this scenario, regardless of that one game killing bug.
But when can we expect the working release? Shouldn't be simply a matter of changing an automatic exit?

If you're going to update faktree, may I suggest you also update the shapesfile? The textures in the shapes file are good, but they don't resemble the colors of the highres textures. Creating a customized colortable is easy.

1.Resize all highrestextures to 128x128.
2.Paste them in one big photoshopfile.
3.Index the colors.
4.Export colortable.
5.Inport colortable in anvil.
6.Replace the first three colors in the colortable with blue, cyan and magenta.

It is hard for me to upload it all again, infact it was Appleswitch who posted it on Simplici7y.

I'll come up with some way later, but for now, here is a fixed version of the map file, the only problem. I don't think your saved games will be affected:

[attachment=2497:Winter_v1.11.sceA.zip]

As for Moppy, I was mad for 3 reasons:

1. I made a simple mistake after spending several hours fixing other ones, and he was somehow possessed to rub it in.
2. I hate anime.
3. Tommorow is my birthday.


As for Goran's idea of sticking in little versions of the textures, my intention was to leave the 128x128 in anvil the way they are. If a person doesn't like our high res versions of the many infinity textures we used, then they would have the option to (or just to see what we used when we mapped). If a person doesn't want them because they are too big, then they can just make the preferences load them in a smaller size, which will still allow them to retain their color.

I dont even have the time to play it :( Well probably next week(end).

I suppose when more bugs are reported, a new version will be uploaded? It would be smart then to upload the textures separately, so that you dont have to upload them every time you fix a little bug.

Anyway, thanks for kinda taking over this project when I got this attack of laziness and disinterest :)

Man I overlooked the options in the preferences. It works very well to resize the textures. Finally, I can play this in full color. [MSmile]

1) Download and unstuff Winter I
2) Put a sounds and an imagesfile in its map
3) Put an aleph one application in the map
4) Make a folder called "Scripts" (Im not sure if it should be with a cap in case sensitive systems but probably youre not on one)
5) Put Winter.mml in the scriptsfolder
6) Shoot pfhor

Edit: step 1 to 5 can be replaced with reading the readme.

I suffered some mild retardation to get setup as well (Note: Though, the read me does seem to instruct the user to add Winter I items into an existing setup, vs. creating a setup).

In order for me to get setup I also had to copy over the Infinity map file and Filenames.mml. If I remove Filenames.mml or the Mi map file A1 won't launch. The game seems to run fine for me, otherwise.

Onto the good stuff; is this terminal texture in need of adjusting?

ditto:

^oh, these are the first terminals in the game, which I must say are very nice looking by themselves.

Flushed [MLaugh] is this a Men In Black reference?

Hey we did great on this :O

Few bugs tho:
In Flushed, there seems to be a landscape problem in the second easternmost bow.
The barrels are stuck in the ground.

Ukimalefu, your problem is most likely that you did not take out the Texture Enchancement Pack script, nor did you turn on the Shapes file. It's definately loading TTEP textures rather than mine, because I always remember what my textures look like :). Make sure that everything is loaded properly like I said in the Read Me.

Your problem also might be that you need to update your Aleph One build. Treellama said that the later builds would be required to run scenarios merged with Atque, but if it managed to load it that far I doubt that's te problem. I can't think of any problem other than that :P

Very lovely to play. While I am not a fan of sewage levels, just as a personal preference, I've enjoyed the few levels I've stormed through already.

I had downloaded only the map, not the whole thing, but the download is WAAAY TO SLOW! So I give up. I won't play this. At least not now.

You'll need the full archive as it contains shape file and texture needed for this short scenario

Anyway, I'm only on 4th level but until now this is very good stuff!

I also spotted a few map bouncy bugs too.
I took screenshots for a bouncy poly on goo lagoon (left of the switch that turns the lights on)
and a bouncy hallway (actually waterfall) on Wishbone

I've played to drictelts level. Haha, I didn't even have to check if it was drictelt's level. I recnognize his mapping style from xmas2.
Flaming hunters (or johannes hunters) were cool. Too bad they weren't a bit faster on their feet. That would make a troublesome enemy.
The architecture is overall good sofar. It's crazy how many levels shadowbreaker have done for this scenario. I respect him for pumping out 3 large levels, all of them good (I like kick the can). I'll come back with more comments once Im through.
