Now that I can load levels like Burning Gundam's levels, I've been trying various mods. Many don't work that well yet - the occasional INF issues but also missing logics and a few other issues - but as I work on things I can guage progress and remaining issues. Some levels, like Dark Tide 4, have more issues then others... (but atleast that level loads now, even though it isn't playable yet).

So, since I'm looking at many of these levels anyway I decided to try a fun little game. I also want to show that I'm serious about supporting all the user mod levels. However I'm not focusing on mods yet, my primary focus is still levels 1 - 3 and the various features for the upcoming build. However more issues with these levels will naturally be resolved as progress is made.

I'll show a few screenshots of an existing mod level in DarkXL and you guys have to figure out which level it is.

So here's the first one, it shouldn't be too hard:




Any other comments are also welcome.

MOUNT BEEPING KUREK!

Nice shots! I really should send you a demo of TOD: SE.

You are both right, of course. And if you want to send over your demo, Pumpkinetics, feel free. Just send it to the e-mail address listed on my profile.

I'll probably do another one of these in a couple of days.

The cafeteria room there makes me wonder, how about being able to drop a 3DO into a folder to universally replace a same-named FME without modifying level data? We might want 3D furniture. Very Happy

There will be a way of overriding assests with other assests, using the mod system. This was discussed in another thread, but what wasn't mentioned is that I planned on having models be able to replace Frames or even Waxes. You could also go the other way too, except that will probably be less desirable. In addition there will eventually be a new Wax type format for specifying sprites with standard images (with alpha). Anyway I already mentioned hi-res texture packs, but model packs will be nice too. Smile
(And for anyone wondering, yes HUD elements will eventually be replacable by models too...)

Initially the models will be 3DOs, but in the future I plan on supporting more modern 3D model formats.

Well I decided to try another level after working on the build, so I went ahead and took some screenshots. Again, try to guess which level these are from - although I imagine this still won't be too hard.






Good luck! Any comments are welcome.

And don't forget to work on your own projects. Laughing

Looks like Discovery at Ironfront to me. Those brown and mossy walls give it away Smile

Go ahead and send it. Make sure to let me know if there are any areas that you don't want screenshots of.

There's only one thing that lovely garden architecture could possibly mean- Beyond Glory 2!

Its that time again! This time I decided to make it a little more difficult by using a slightly more obscure level.

Good luck!

Nice to see these classics in XL. Particularly Beyond Glory 2 shows off how much better a more modern engine makes this game look, and what can be achieved.

Any chance of giving my demo (link here) a whirl? I'm admittedly curious as to how it would look in the new engine, might be interested in doing some more with it if I've got time.

I have to say that you guys all seem to have a very good memory. Laughing

I'm glad you guys like the game, I'll probably do this periodically up until the release.

Mmmm, Faust . . . I've never heard of it, it's not on DF-21, is it?

Good way to keep us interested, by the way, lucius. I like it. Not only that, but it will certainly rekindle our interest in all the classic levels that we haven't played in years . . . (but by 'we' I mean 'you', cause I didn't even play DOS DF or any of the mod levels until about a year ago . . . before that, I only knew it from the Playstation . . .)
