The Descent Into Chaos: Corrino's Revenge 2

Update: ZzZzZ...eh? What? I'm up, I'm up!

OK, here is the lowdown: I am mostly waiting on other people now. Of course, that's not entirely correct, because I have not told said people yet that I am waiting on them. So...

Almost all of the coding is done. All I have left is to do the Ixian Bomber and Ixian Technician, along with the Tlielaxu Infector Missile.

However, for those last two, I need:

-An "IX_Scientist" XBF made to shoot, or rather repair. Presumably Frodo or Adrian would do this.

-The coding to make splats turn infantry into contaminators. Inoc said he might be able to do this.

Also, Inoc: I need the Tleilaxu Infantry textures, and then all of your Corrino (Ordos), Ixian (Atreides), and Tleilaxu (Harkonnen) ones compiled into "=G_infantry_256" (without changing the Empy-standard subhouses and incidentals).

For Inoc and Frodo to fight over: Vehicle textures, done in a similar manner to the Infantry ones.

I'll do buildings myself (unless you two are feeling really motivated. ;)).

Expect the final Alpha patch "soon".

hmm, making things shoot/repair is tricky. i only did it once and it was sheer luck. it is just that the thing has to be precise, you have to place the data in the right spot and have to put the right data in, quite tideous with alot of trial and error. it took me almost 3 weeks to do it the first time, and it was an accident.

Ok... I can do the textures, but compile into the G_infantry thing isn't possible, unless you want to use all the original unit models :P What I mean is you can't really do that unless you use the original units :-/

What I'm trying to do is avoid having to put every infantry model in the mod. I mean, some infantry (engineers and scouts, for instance) will use models already made for their sides, so it would be a waste to put them in the download. Why can't you just put Ix texturers over Atreides, TL over Hark, and Corrino over Ordos in =G_Infantry-256? Like I did with Ordos to Corrino in CR1?

Ok, spose I'll get em all to you eventually. It's pretty time consuming corresponding all the thigs to the correct area, but if you feel it's a priority I'll do it.

And Frodo can have the vehicle textures ;)

(What did you think of the Ixian Infantry textures btw?)

AGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I come back after a while of not working on CR2, and what do I see?! This! WTF is going on? I haven't changed a thing since the last time I've played it. All of the maps do the same thing.

Edit: Oh, thank goodness. It does it even with CR2 uninstalled. I guess it's my Empy, and not the mod. Let me try reinstalling.

Edit 2: Even a fresh install to a new folder, without installing CR2, did not help. guess I'd better take this to Tech Support.

So...how are those TL textures & splat-mutates-infantry-into contaminators thing coming? :)

I've just aboiut finished coding. The Ixian scientist proved useless anyways, so it was cut, meaning only the Ixian Bomber and TL superwepon remain. :)

I'm just about finished with the bsic coding, though the game is being a b*tch about the Ixian bomber; I think I have too many declarations in the "Rules" file. I also need the coding to make splats turn infantry into Contaminators. Inoc said he might be able to do this.

After those things are done, the elusive "Alpha 1.3 patch" will be out. :)

Also, Inoc: I need all of your Corrino (Ordos), Ixian (Atreides), and Tleilaxu (Harkonnen) ones compiled into "=G_infantry_256" (without changing the Empy-standard subhouses and incidentals).

OK, let me put it this way: Some units (scouts, engineers, Kindjal/LasTrooper, Suboid, and subhouse units, among others) use unedited XBF's that would point to the original =G_Infantry_256.tga file. If I don't have a compiled version of that file, EVERY infantry XBF used in the game would have to be edited & included. That's a LOT of space, not to mention time.

You are in a moldy old thread. The last post was months ago. The thread appears to discuss some sort of mod that you vaguely remeber.

There is a reply button here.

There is a quote button here.

There are some posts here.

>read post

Which one?

>read Inocculator9's most recent post

The post reads:

Well, unfortunately I have no idea what's what in that damned file, lol :P So, as the ancient greeks said, it's up to you fathead ;D Sorry, but I just don't have time to go through the trouble of figuring that file out, lol :P

-------------------

It all comes back to you now: you were working on this mod with an Inocculator9 and a Frodo. You were the project leader. Then school came, and you had no more time.

>Kill school with sword

What a grisly idea!

>Press reply button

Pressed.

You can't see any Inoculator9 here!
