Again I'm posting this game, a game I have been working on for many years now mainly because I can’t be bothered. The other reason is because I decided to make this game slightly ambitious (well as far as anything I do goes by), I wanted to make everything in the game editable.
At first it started out with just editable levels but then went closer to everything, sounds, scripting, textures, most of which are unfinished or cant be implemented.
So far there’s a very buggy editor, working sound scripting and not much else scripting.
Oh and to bring you up to speed if you've never seen this before, you play Snake a genetically modified snake who was bred as a super soldier and then released in the Vietnam jungle during the war. Basically you have to kill all the Vietnamese defending their land, please don’t complain about the spelling as I'm very tired.
Normal Hand Gun Attacker
Heat Seeking Attacker (Buggy projectile)
Machine Gun (secondary attack, press g to charge)
Petrel Drum 1
Petrel Drum 2
Gas Bottle Lying Down
Gas Bottle Standing Up
What I wanted to put in:
1 Mini Boss (I will still work on this, basically it’s a big version of the normal guys but it behaves like a hunter from halo)
All textures loaded out side of game (limitation with mmf)
Working Ammo counters
Pick ups (ammo, health, weapons)
Working scripting other than sound, timed explosions, events ect.
Linking levels for a single player experiences
And a bunch of other stuff I forget
Oh and a more up to date editor with no bugs
Anyway see what you think, you can see how complex I was becoming in the recent development, take a look at the files in the textures folder and sound folder. I would have liked to do that for every bitmap in the whole game, but alas the damn alpha channel and slowness.
I should also point out the lack of levels that come with this beta; the levels that comes this are test levels and are pretty boring. This is why I have included the level editor, please if you have any questions then don’t hesitate to ask.
If you make any good levels then please email them to me as either the individual level files or as the whole custom game folder, I would love to play any decent levels and may be able to make some level pack for download for people.
And please keep checking here, I will be updating as and when I remember anything I have left out or feels needs to be added or explained.
PS - There still seems to be some debug code in there, so it'll probaly make a file called Debug.ini with some random repeating file address. Just ignore this it'll do you no harm, I'll try and remember to remove this the next time I get tempted to work on this game again
