Re:Here's a mad idea...

Yes, 'other'. Why discriminate? That option in particular will determine how the other characters in the game address you. 'Squire', 'Master', 'Ma'am', 'stranger','my friend', etc. I've thought a bit more, and now I'm gonna have an RGB slider for you to blend whatever colour you like for your dungeo...

Re:Here's a mad idea...

Sorry Lord Fear , but I haven't got anymore demos finished yet. I'm currently working on a Timed Causeway and Corridor Of Blades, as well as a general isometric viewpoint demo. Unfortunately, as I've said, I have some other design commitments to take care of at the moment, but as soon as I have some...

Re:Here's a mad idea...

That's a very good idea. In fact, I'm toying with a number of ways to represent the Life Force. There's the classic 'peeling head', the Armoured Skeleton, the pie (not likely though). Other ideas I've had include a water bottle that slowly dries up, or a burning candle (as used to great effect in th...

Re:Lord-fear

Seeing that one of my favourite personal lines ("Live. In. Fear.") is being bandied about willy-nilly on this thread, I thought I'd better get my two cents in before the controversy dies down. ;D Nothing exasperates me more than people who go out of their way to act cool, while simultaneously indulg...

Re:Here's a mad idea...

Hey everyone, Just so you guys don't start thinking I've abandoned the project, I thought I'd better let it be known that I'll be away for a few weeks. I've got some pretty pressing design work to deal with, and unfortunately it can't wait. Never fear though, for I will be back before you know it, a...

Re:Here's a mad idea...

Yes - 'sexualise'. Those of you who read my postings on the 'Knightmare Crush' thread will already know my thoughts on the heavy psychosexual undertones running through the show. To this end, I was wondering if we should be tarting up or revamping the costumes to look cooler, slightly more contempor...

Re:Here's a mad idea...

.....game.....game? What?! Yes, back to the topic in hand. Christ, I'll rue the day I ever mentioned the word 'isometric' in a chat forum. A Smirkenoff sequence may indeed be cool, though I can't see it adding anything to the game other than a bit of waiting around, personally. And sadly, I haven't...

Re:Here's a mad idea...

I actually own two C64's - one in the orginal beige and brown, and the other in the updated off-white style. I haven't played them in a considerable amount of time, because the powerpacks have blown up. But I have the CCS64 emulator on my PC, with about 200 games, and it gets played to death (when I...

Re:Here's a mad idea...

Impressive indeed kids, I hadn't figured in the concept of Knightmare fans harbouring otaku-like obsessions with cyberpunk games of yesteryear. But if we're talking isometric, you have to start at the beginning, with the likes of Head Over Heels and The Great Escape on the old Commy 64, and the abso...

Re:Here's a mad idea...

Thanks for all your comments folks, it's great to see people taking an interest. As regards the actual playing of the game, I'm trying to decide what viewpoint to use. The most obvious idea would be to use the same viewpoint as the show - with the camera at the back of the room, behind the dungeonee...

Re:Here's a mad idea...

Cheers Skarky, me old matey. If it's gore you're after, you'll like my next trick, which should be up around this time next week - it'll be a Corridor Of Blades animation. And just for you, I reckon I could throw in a Helmethead getting his noggin lopped off, just for effect - ahahHAHAHA! Or, as you...

Re:Here's a mad idea...

Ah yes, I have come across these after all. Pretty impressive stuff, just synchronizing the HTML frames must have been a nightmare, let alone actually writing the thing and rendering the graphics. No, my adventure will be nothing like that in terms of presentation or gameplay. My adventure is going ...

Re:Here's a mad idea...

Hey folks,

If anyone's interested, I've uploaded a rough animation test of the siege mortar bomb from Series 1-2. Check it out if you like:

Re:Did you ever play Knightmare

When I was just a kid of eight or nine or ten, I had a hell of a knack for making replica Helmets Of Justice out of A4 paper and sellotape. I'd stick it over my head, force my mother to stand at the side of the hallway thrusting a broom handle back and forth, while my little sis shouted directings f...
