Project TR - RPG Maker VX experience anyone?

Post by Deathclaws on Sun Jan 31, 2010 8:39 pm

Before I start, NO, this has nothing to do with TR: The Game. I was bored one morning and decided to start programming.

So I am going to create a short RPG called "TR - the aftermath" telling the story of a young noob, finding the ruins of the TR base, he sees how the guild fell (invading forces and betrayal, all told throughout a few cutscenes), and then seeks out the bad guy who did it to bring him to justice. I am using RPG Maker VX, and here is why I am posting this in the sandbox:
A) rpg maker IS a rather popular program, and I am looking for someone out there who has had some experience with it, because I really need a few tips in the coding department (I don't get switches :().
B) I need a sprite (not a pixel figure, a model of your character from every direction, BUT pixeled xD) of your character so I can implement him. Finding lord zombie fx is easy. Just look for an undead with fancy clothes. But finding a leprachaun with kaotics hair....well.....
this is a sprite fx

If you can find one that looks a bit like your char, I can add it to the cutscenes xD (this is a good place to start)

I've worked an hour up until now, heres the result (a quick battle test with lord Zombie and a few halls :P)

That looks pretty cool for an hours work!

I'll have a look for sprites that could do as me later.

I'm just thinking... we have spriters in our clan that could simply make custom sprites for the game.

But...

I suppose we could use sources until we have our own.

ok srsly, if anyone knows something about switches (especially when it comes to dialogue switches, I've got an entire cutscene worked out but I have no idea how to play the texts in the right order), please PM me.

@above

I'll take what you find xD
also, pixel characters isn't the problem, its just one hell of a lotta work, creating one from all directions.

Dude, this is pretty sick. I loved how you killed Vamp though and the sock dragon XD

But yeah, custom sprites and stuff would be better for this sort of thing with characters, as for switches? Only a bit of experience in Flash sorry.

ok, I finally managed to get cutscenes in (very experimental, BUT IT WORKS), now someone tell me the TR motto!

If I don't get one in a few seconds I'll just write
"No matter how many fires burn on our Horizon"
"How many foes invade our fortress"
"How long the battle last"
"How terrible our situation might seem"
"Stand with me comrades, through waves of blood and death"
"Accept defeat, we shall not. Stand tall, even in death, we shall!"

Thats pretty cool, DC. Question: Can you upload art into the game, or just preselected items from the gallery?

For example, could you put one of Nelioka's trees into it? Or a walking animation/frames done in photoshop?

Pretty much anything can be put in there. the problem is that I can only select certain parts at times, which I don't really get myself. When I tried to get kaotics pixel character in, I managed to ... select his nose. I decided to use a pre-made kaotic-look-alike instead of JUST his nose (nose doesn't fare well in cutscenes!). If you can find the right measures, ofc, but you'll have to google em yourself xD I'm almost finished with next 2 sequences, and I'll be giving you a rapidshare link soon (you can play the unfinished game for a minute or 1.5 ;))

yarrr.....(that means trial....right?)

finished the upload. Just extract and run game.exe

CAN ONLY BE DOWNLOADED 10 TIMES!
I'm gonna get some sleep. nighty night.

PS: I created the title screen in the last 2 minutes, so I just slapped whatever I found on it. Improvements tomorrow xD
PPS: Your character is "a noob" and has the class "paladin". Interact with the ENTER key (you won't have to usually, most events happen when your character touches a certain part of the scenery xD)

Vamp, I think I found the measures

Measures for faces etc.
If you want your char to have a custom face, please PM me a link to a 96x96 big picture of your face of choice (if you have photoshop or gimp or paint, please put it in a 376x192 pixel picture, in the upper left corner. If not, I'll just sprite it and do it myself)

Added 2 new cutscenes yesterday, gonna try to import custom sprites now.
