*BUMP!* : )

GOALS
--------
-finish the "Theme Song"
-get used to VBASIC 6
-graphics development in Photoshop

NEWS
--------
Okay, the news are gonna be very interesting this time....there'll be cutscenes, 2 are done already.
The graphics will be drawn, black and white with Cel Shading (all done on my tablet).
It looks like a very, very dark, sinister comic, runs seamless and is, I have to say, verry cool ^_^

I'm also molesting my Yamaha PSR 740 and composing some theme music, which will be downloadable soon for a "sneak preview", including some pictures too.

The site will be announced here soon.

one for protecting, one for killing.
Which side do you use?

--------
-transfer the code to VBASIC 6.0, which means a month of work
-make a very cool terminal interface, all steel lined
-perhaps even a 3d environment (Server room/ compuer room) where you can move in
(I know how to do this, trust me ;-)

NEWS
--------
Well... I already have some knowledge using 3d engines in programs to create rooms, for example. You could walk around, use a fax machine (for example) and so on and so on...

..and a script other than the SLEEP command to simulate loading times...
Just a few pointers (honestly not ment to be taken badly in any way :))
  • The idea of a '3D' environment always looks good but is normaly cumbersome, and can be annoying. Also it would kinda ruin the idea of being at your own home using your own computer to hack. It would make it feel too 'gamey'. (If you know what I mean)
  • The code I use to pause time:-
    [font=courier new]DEFINT A-Z
    SUB pause (time!)
      tim! = TIMER
      DO
      LOOP UNTIL (TIMER - tim!) > time!
    END SUB[/font]
    So if you want to pause the game for a second it's just [font=courier new]pause 1[/font] easy, tho I'm sure you've already come up with a better idea. ;)
P.S. I'd love to get hold of this game and do some testing for you :biggrin:

Well...see I was looking at upcoming games and i found one... ".hack"...It is weird though and has nothing to do with hacking. You play a guy playing an rpg on his computer. It is kinda wierd but cool. Someone should put weird shit like that into a hacking game.

OK Im probably posting a lil to many bad ideas but shut me up if u have to.OK how bout this. You can hire "hack helpers" not like u hire people to do ur jobs but say like...ill use an uplink scenario, like say someone asks u 2 alter someones birth certificate, it has like a proxy level 5 and u cantdisable it or ull get caught.You hire a "proxy" specialist and he has HUD connection thinger and all the hookups.So to get to the point .You give him only a fraction of what you earned, but saved yourself like 30,000 creds.Get my jist?You could use the random function and just make a list and have it changed, say every 3 hours.O that just made me think.i dunno if u know how to do this but u could base the...whateva game is called, clock on the persons win clock.that way time could run when the comp is off.btw did u like the idea of just stealing all the text and pics from sites .but then again they could sue u. choices.....lol.Well I'll probably come up with some new dieas soon so shut me up and give me a beta tester before I burn my mouth out!!!hahaha.And try not to get to consumed in the 3d graphics.I mean they're kewl and all, but if you read the "bio" on uplink they tried that and it failed miserably.(3d houses, floorplans of places to hit, and stuff like that)but it all sounds good to me.o btw what does the "browser interface look like" I ask 2 many questions.haah.OK another idea hahaha.U could have other hackers slash gov. agencies not only tracing you, but trying to hack you.so you could purchse firewalls and monitors and all that.So if this turns out like u say.it should be awesome.

Shut me up with a demo....soon,
Tdog
