Lets make this forum alive again!

Recommended Posts

Okay, i am quite busy creating a website that should revamp this entire place. What i got so far:

- a dummy website, you can follow my progress (http://arrakis.dune2k.com/dummy.html)

- 3 projects (Arrakis, Dunedit, Dune II - The Maker) to cover

- files for Dunedit, Dune 2, Arrakis, Dune II - The Maker

So what do we need more? What is more needed to get this world/forum alive again? As some of you might remember, i like INPUT, LOTS of INPUT from visitors; etc. Ie. Should an Arrakis2K project return? if so, how? Use CVS for programming? Lets create our own worlds! Nothing is impossible, as long as you want it...

Cookies!!

Getting the website up is a good idea. :)

Maybe add some screenshots, and I like how in dune2 the maker demo you can change resolution.

yeah great idea! Give some detailed stuff about what you are planning to implement etc. New units/houses perhaps? Ehm. Story line? Your game needs a good story line!

well, the game needs a story line? Why don't you come up with one? :) Remember i code on this one for fun, and when i don't feel like coding, i just don't code. It can take months to complete this game, perhaps a few years. Its about the fun though to complete this game and about the amount of work.

Ie, did you notice my 2 'new upgrades' in The Maker? Like 'fremen intelligence' and 'sand worm detection on maps'. Both very SIMPLE yet Dune2ish upgrades.

I also have grabbed the DUne2k tilesets, the engine is flexible enough to use them , i wonder how much of the gfx of DUne2k can be used with my engine here.

Ow btw, perhaps releasing the source will speed up things? I dunno how many coders are here?

In what language are you programming the game?

Well, I have some programming experience. Which include Java. So you can bring it on the code! ;)

Well, grab yourself Allegro , and compile it. Also grab yourself MSVC and i might send the code to ya so you can learn how it works. (the code structure).

I wasn't saying I really needed to compile it. But maybe if you needed something I could give some input.

Although, I have been considering learning C++. Although many people say it is a complex and sometimes ugly language, I want to try it out for myself.

So perhaps I will get my hands on the necassary stuff someday, and drop by :)

Coming holidays...?

lol,

well Timenn you can drop by, i live near Amsterdam. We should chat on irc about this though (or drop me an e-mail).

Anyway, the source is not hard to learn and i don't use C++ to its 'full potential' because its getting weird for me too then ;) I am learning each day though.

Seriously, I actually meant "drop in", not necassarily to literally drop by your house.

And besides, from my point of view, you don't live that close to Amsterdam ;)

I see if I can get my hands on something in which I can compile C++. And try to mess around with Allegro too. But that have to wait for a weeks first.

could be interesting, though, to visit your master...

Well, 30 mins from Amsterdam with a bus is close enough for me ;)

Anyway, lemme know how and what (send me an e-mail) and i will reply with the stuff you need.

I'm the laziest person on the whole forum, and even I think 30 minutes is just fine.
