Re:Here's a mad idea...

Well FK, since you had the (albeit posthumous) distinction of putting me out of the Battle Royale, I was going to ask you if I could include you anyway! Your main use would be killing, and of course controlling the Causeways. However, I was going to 'humanise' you insofar that you would say stuff. J...

Re:Here's a mad idea...

Sorry folks, I'd better clear up the confusion. By 'KMRPG' I actually meant The Knightmare Roleplay Surrounds board at ProBoards. I did NOT mean the chromakey roleplay filmed by the talented hardcore. Drassil was good enough to realise what I meant and point it out to me via IM, as I'm afraid I have...

Re:Here's a mad idea...

You must have telekinetic powers or something, Gizensha . I've already laid out the engine for random selection of what I call 'non-set-piece' locations. By the same token, taking wrong turns will lead to a random blast of instant-deathness - if anyone has ideas for cool ways to kill the dungeoneer ...

If you want a rough idea of my Flash prowess so far - and I'm getting better every day - visit my site, http://www.skiponline.4t.com/ and have a look.

Re:Here's a mad idea...

See, I've never made a game in Flash before. I've made games in BASIC, Commodore 64 6510+, assembly, DIV-Basic, Klik & Play, SEUCK, 3D Construction Kit, and yes, even PASCAL - but never in Flash. As a result, I'm learning as I go, mostly through trial and error. But I'm improving all the while. My f...

Re:Here's a mad idea...

Laavley indeed. I've been continuing with the graphics work, building up rooms from the basic layouts you saw earlier and adding things like textures, rock walls, torches, ornamental detail and gameplay features like pits and wells. It's slowly but surely taking shape. Another bonus, if you could ca...

Re:RICH/POWERFUL KM FANS

It's an impressive idea, I'll grant you, but unfortunately this ikkle forum here is a little short of the 5,000,000 members mark. Sadly, I reckon that the people who are rich, powerful and have industry influence are licensing the next series of Pop Idol , and wouldn't look anywhere near a show feat...

Good luck,

Re:My Knightmare Artwork

Extremely impressive. What did you use to do the artwork?

Is this going to be a chromakey experiment like The Silent Cartographer, or a game of some sort like The Deeper Dungeons?

Forgive my ignorance...

Re:My Knightmare Artwork

Damn it Casper, I was looking forward to this, but you've specified absoulte paths to your images, not relative ones! So my computer's looking for the images on my hard drive instead of from your webspace! Argh!

Hope you get it fixed soon!

Re:Here's a mad idea...

Thanks for the feedback peeps, I hope you're beginning to get a feel for the project even at this very early stage. You'll have noticed that I've done away with the isometric viewpoint in favour of 'tv' angles. It just looks better. I'm confindent I can program a decent scaling routine to make the d...

Re:Here's a mad idea...

Fucking hell, it's a fiendish one alright. It's kinda like The Mills Of Doom, only.... nastier. Hah! I assume that the way to survive would be by keeping the player on the pivotal centre point of each block until it was safe to move? If the player stands in the centre of the block, it can swivel aro...

Whoa. I'll answer in reverse order: Fidjit - if by 'internet game' you mean 'can be played between more than one person via modem link-up', then it certainly isn't. If, however, you mean 'can be played in a browser window without having to download it', then as I've said before, it certainly is. Cas...

Re:Here's a mad idea...

It's nice to see that some of you are as sick-minded as me when it comes to re-imagining the classic Knightmare obstacles. Here's my own take on a potential Corridor of Blades: The conveyor will be divided into three, with two runners between them, along which will fly poles with rotary blades on 'e...

Re:Video Game?

My game will lift the best rooms from all seasons of Knightmare - causeways, bomb rooms, Cards Of Chaos, Corridor Of Blades, Trial By Spikes etc. I'm also gonna be throwing in some original rooms and ideas, which I hope people will be ready and willing to try and tackle. I will be harsh but fair. De...
