Emperor Chronicles The Rise Of Corrino Empire

Recommended Posts

Sorry gor the dead topic..

I accidentally fried my pc causing me to loose one of the hard disk containing my games and the mod game..

unfo I hadn't backed the game up due to low space..

I guess either I need to rewrite from start or drop this..

I was sad for the past week as I finished all the mods with new tiles etc..

No demo it was the full game..

My other files I am working on other than dune which werw on the other disc survived and I have a pretty much a gamemaker rts engine there which I made for another game..

can anyone suggest me a way..

I'm a bit fragile now..

:-(

 If it was just the board on the drive that died you could get it replaced.

actually smps caught flame..

I shutdown the gouse electricity and threw a bucket on it..

After moving the pc from downstairs to upstairs the qire broke and bare wire qas open to air..

it caught fire..

unfo it burned part of motherboard and harddisk on top..

I use my older computer for now..

I don't kno if i'll get it fixed in time..

I think i'll make this game in my game maker engine..

or if by any miracle the burnt harddisk survived i'll post the mod..

the comp guys are trying to fix it..

I am very sorry for this. Good luck with the HDD, cause you will need it. If it caught fire on top there is the danger it heated/burned the magnetic material that covers the metal plates. It will crack and all data will be gone. If not it will damage on usage. So it will have to be mounted read only and salvage whatever possible.

 

At least when you buy new hardware make sure the SMPS has a lot of Watts and is heavy (weight=quality). I have burned a couple of SMPS's but not to the point for the PC to catch fire.

thank you guys luckily i found an older copy in my cousins unused pc..

i'll continue from there..

forgive me fr the delay..

btw i think it was lightning that did it as practically where i live is a lightning and earthquake country and it was raining and my stupid ups had problems..

this eventually i guess led to the fire..

it seems this copy of emperor chronicles doesn't have any new tilesets or the new menus i created for dividing single player lan and internet..

i'll get on to modding as soon as my computer is fixed..

fingers crossed..

good news ain't it??

although another months of hard work waitin..

Ignore the multiplayer for now man... Cmon why are u even bothering with that at this stage? We barely get few players to play the original game, this mod would have ZERO playerbase in its beta stages. Concentrate on the missions and tilesets and release a demo version asap.

I know about the zero player base for demo.. I expect it.. :unsure:

 

I'm making a list on excel and fixing all maps manually one by one so that it'll be playable..

My major mistake was in Atriedes Mission 1 where we have to mine a lot of spice but unfortunately forgot to put in spice blooms and as a result spice dried up fast..

And most maps i made are kinda small.. :P

 

I'm doing the best i can so that after the incident i can do it as fast as i can.... :(

I remember that there is a file where you can change the music of any mission, I think we can even add the new missions to it and define a music.

I wish it was that easy, if you modify the file it stops working :(
