Edit: Grr, I don't understand. Apparently all the Sound Files are slowed down quite alot when they're brought into the game.

If anyone has any info on how and why the sounds are slowed down, please tell me.


Erm... that might be the reason they're all OGG files...


Yeah, I have no idea what an OGG is ok? Work with me here. Ok, I'll try two things now, see how it works
-Try exporting sound as .WAV and see if that works alright.
-Speed up sounds in audio editer before they're exported.

As for release date: As soon as I'm done with it. It'll be awhile, this is my first mod attempt and am still figuring everything out. But all things considered, this is going smoothly really.

Try exporting the files to .ogg as mono, with a lower sample rate.

Would it be possible to make the one star nuke have the 4 other faded out stars with it?

Yeah, But with just one star It's more Simplistic and Iconic. And it would look pretty ugly with 5 star symbols flying around as one nuke.

EDIT: *Loads up Newest version of mod*

*starts up Defcon*

Defcon.exe has encountererd a problem and needs to close.


...Huh.

EDIT: Kay... Apparently it doesn't like me adding my own messages to the Lobby thing.

No ASCII Batman then Image

If anyone can tell me the proper way to add something the the Lobby Overlays section earns a Super-Cookie.

EDIT: Uh huh uh huh...From what I can tell all the sound files, even by default are slower in game then when played. Interesting.

EDIT: Yes....YES! When I add a forigen sound into an audio file, I just increase the Speed of it by 110% And it sounds normal almost!

Lobby Overlay... you mean the thing that displays all the radiation info and beta testers and stuff? Just have it all at the same tabbed intervals. It can't be directly next to each other... so ascii art is pretty much out of the question.

Yeah...I copied the format exactly from the other Lobby overlays. I even labeled every line, just instead of text ASCII. I don't know why it didn't work....Even when I do simple text it has the same problem.

I have a hat full of troubles. Image

EDIT: Ugh, The Series of tube Sprite didn't turn out very good. It doesn't look quite Tubey Enough. Eh, It's ALLRIGHT I guess. I just expected better.

When a nuke hits a city, it has to say, "Divided by zer-ohshi-"

Wasn't that a 4chan thing?

Anyways, Things I can't really think of what to remake as, and am open for suggestions:

-Airbase sprite: I was thinking of like, a Snake factory, but that'd be kinda...lame.
-Airplane: If It was possible to have different projectiles, I'd make it shoot snakes. Buuut I can't. I kinda like the Stapler Idea.
-City: Yeah, Can't think of a Common Symbolic thing for YTMND citys.
-Missle Silo (Defense Mode): I was thinking something like the new BAH fad, but I'm sure someone can think of something better.
-GUI symbols for Orders, Population, scores, territory, and units: ...Yeah, I'm Really stumped. Scores Could be Sean Connery Pointing?

That's what the edit button is for, lolol.

I trashed the idea of renaming and replacing citys, because then you wouldn't be able to play it online. I mean the SYMBOL for citys.

Heh, and instead of Game Over, you get "You're the man now dog!" ?
