<font color=aa0000>Good luck getting Achilles on board. Last time I talked to him he said he'd wasted enough time and energy on this game and it was time to concentrate on his career (or something to that effect). I haven't really seen him around here since.

It's really for the best. Throwing time and energy in this game is pretty wasteful.

Ender: send me those versions, and the map maker! or upload them, please Smile Those are extremely useful.

my master Thadius: a modeler would be _obscenely_ helpful. I am sick and tired of sorting out the 3ds MAX->.x bullhonkey.

DANJR: the more items, the better! The only real limit to what we can have in the game is how much the coders are able to put in. We may have everything look like swords for a while..


is this Achilles' email? achilles1897 "at" hotmail.com

If you guys are serious about this, we need to start talking details.

Underlying technologies:
Direct3D or OpenGL?
I know Direct3D best, but respect OpenGL for its ease of use and would be willing to learn

DirectInput
I don't really see any alternatives...

How about OggVorbis for music?
I have some working code for the music component of OV. Plus, it's a free format.

Program components required for basic game

Network communication
Basically provides a link between the clients and server so that they can talk to each other.

Scene Renderer
Draws the map (including map components, like the trees), players, NPCs, monsters, and effects.

HUD Renderer (aka Graphical User Interface)
The original Xen GUI was very simple. The only thing I'd like to improve on immediately is how typing was handled; no more of that stupid lag while typing. However, I'd like to use the original Xenimus font. Anyone still got the old bitmap?

Input manager
Takes key presses from the user, passes them through the game state (is the user typing in a dialog box? are these keys the user's attempt to cast a spell?) then produces an effect, which is generally a packet to the server.

State manager
Controls the program's passing from main menu to password entry to server screen to in-game. Mostly a behind-the-scenes kinda thing.

Game State Updater
This is for the server-side. It will update everything in the world, then send out packets to the clients letting them know what just happened. Also, it will interpret packets from the clients to produce their desired effects.

whatever you do, include some client-side prediction. Xen SUCKS on that.

EJ should have like an optional premium package for like $8-10 which gives access to an old school server and possibly a free respec elixir.

I'm worthless for anything technical, but if you'd like any help writing a storyline, quests, or NPC dialogue, then I'm definitely game.

Karl, would you mind PM'ing me your e-mail and/or MSN? It'd be nice to finally have you on MSN or atleast have a way of contacting you away from the BtR boards. It's been pretty slow over there lately, so 'Agarwaen' hasn't been very active Razz

If I can't do something like along the lines of writing for your project, the least I could do is be a cheerleader and write some fan-fiction. My friend is also working on a community site right now, which will be focused on gaming in general. I offered to be a game scout and editor for him, so I could write up a few articles on the old school project Smile

lakaiskater33@hotmail.com is my MSN.

I hear someone was uploading all previous updates to a webspace file, that would be a great place to start on compiling the code.

If you expect a game in under a week you're going to be disappointed.

I like the old menu better...

With the old backround and old music and old colors Smile

Maybe ej could put up old xenimus, and then current xenimus could be xenimus 2, like 20 years later or some shit. That way he could drasticly change xenimus 2 and we would be happy with xenimus 1.

I also like the old menu. I like the old background, too. In fact, the old colors and cursor are exactly what I need! I even like the name Xenimus better.

Hey! No wonder why I'm trying to emulate it.

However.

Being as nobody is helping me code, or design, or create graphics, or model, I'm keeping as many things simple as I can.

No, it's not going to look exactly like the old Xenimus AT FIRST. As I said, I'm keeping things (incredibly) simple.

Guys, forget about coding a new game. Thats NEVER going to happen. You need to convince ej to put up an old skool server. Its the only way.

Old music was the best. Anyone have the old play.wav? before it got all gay? The one I would open in winamp and leave on loop all night while I slept. (and consequently have disturbing dreams about being eviscerated underneath the arch south of Semel.)

No, I actually did that. It was a very relaxing little .wav, just not when you fell asleep to it.

<font color="aa0000">It's been years since I didn't have the music off. Was that the one with the cool oboe? The music you hear in the forest (among other places)?
We should really leave this thread underailed though, for Karl's sake.

It might have been an Oboe. But what your thinking of is exactly it.
