sweet that a new thread is started..

yes chaoslord can do it in 68k for now, aslong as he use ansiC , dont use c++ unless you are experienced with it, ansiC is the best option i rekon ...

as for SDL , sure SDL is an option but then we can always ask Chaozer or robinC , basically SDL is way easy and easy ported , basically an SDL game can be moved around to any plattform aslong as there is an SDL Client for the os*hw.

anyway i wont participate in much here, just assiting my neighbour (restore) as much as possible.


cheers

Whats up with all the hate!

@ Restore

Visual Arts sounds okay. If anything, we can use it until we come up with a name more suited to the 'company'.  ;-)

[EDIT]

I agree with the SDL idea. While it would be great to have it for the Amiga, there is a slight possiblity that if the games good enough, it could be picked up for PC, Mac, Linux or Console.

Having a bigger market is always better, but like I said before, since you have a basic idea about what you want out of the game, make sure you give us a list of what the engine *SHOULD* do, in terms of playability, levels, etc.

Oh... If you're not too experienced with coding, it might be better starting off with some rather simple game... Or just decide not to start doing every feature first...

First "version" of my strategy game had barely (random) map with some walls, that could be scrolled. Second version had one soldier, you could move around... Third had some Field of Vision routines, and in the fourth version they finally worked :-)

But the idea is, start with simple things, don't even think of starting doing everything...

Gotcha. I'll get on it, as soon as I get the email.

Heh, you kind of threw me for a loop when you said you needed cities with no more than 12 buildings.  I was sitting here thinking, 'What kinds of buildings'?!?

hehe, each building will have its own function, 6 buildings for recruting 6 different monsters, 1 building for learning spells, level 1 to level 5 spells, that means the building can be upgraded 4 times.

1 building for buying armour and weapons,
1 "city hall" building, that can be upgraded 2 times(the function of this building is how much tax money that is collected each week, when upgraded u get more money)
and finally 1 garrison building, where u can buy all 6 monsters from.

phew!
 :-)

Note that upgraded buildings dont have to differ much in style from the ones you start with.

Okay, I think I got it.

So were talking 6 buildings, one for each type of soldier. IE, A Templar Temple for building templar knights, a Dwarven Church to build Battle Priests, a Druid Grove for Elven Druids, Orc Hatchery for builiding Orc Shock Troops,  etc.

A spell school, with different versions per upgrade. That's fairly easy. Is there a different building for each racial sect, or is it universal?

A city hall, to change to a keep and then a castle or palace. I assume that this will be different for each race, but correct me if I am mistaken.

And finally a barracks, to train the soldiers in.

Are there any other buildings, like an iron works, so you can have upgraded weapons and armor, or are those done in the buildings that are used to gain the soldiers?

I've got a couple of sketches done. I'm going to go to my mates, father's house to scan them tonite. You know, if you're using Demons or the like, I still have most of the work I did when I was applying for a job at ClickBOOM on 666. I never sent them my portfolio, so they're fair game to use.  

I do hope that ClickBOOM is still going to release 666. I never played Nightlong, but I saw the trailer and it looked sweet.

Methuselas: The buildings work the same way  for all 3 races, except the artwork style if different, eg. an elvish town should look elvish etc....

The names will be different for each race yea, but it will have the same function for all races.

No, the weapons and armour will be bought at the weapons shop. Note that the weapons & armour only can be worn by the hero. and it functions as a bonus for the heros damage, defence etc, this ofcourse can be discussed, but it is much easier to do it this way

Okay, the next time I see an elf at the grocer, I'll ask him what his home town looks like.  :-P
