Well, to start, i'm quite a mid-bie (not newbie, not oldbie) but eversince I read about The Old Crowd, it was rather touching to know a big bunch of old friends, made from around the world, greet each other like a DB Gathering Party!

Well, pls dun get me wrong, maybe we could make something like a DB Pro game out of this reunion? U know, something like (example only! dun get angry!) maybe like a simple FPS? U pick a character, ranging from big names of the oldbies, and when u've already selected, u'll be battling it out with other familiar oldbies (of course AI, but could be a multiplayer game perhaps?) and at each end of levels, we get to fight the Bosses; maybe perhaps Martyn, Raven, Rapscallion, Frogger, and the last Boss would be Rich?

This is just an idea.. dun mean to upset anyone... any suggestion?

p.s. - in the near future, is there gonna be some sort of reunion party for DB users from around the world? just suggesting... Cheers!

lol... should put me last
i know alot of people would love to blast the crap outta me, give them an incentive

actually a good point though, still joking about what the twisted minds here at WW and Blizzard came up with on our few days off. I'll have to see about hosting it, its a funny little game about Raps cat and an Orc with explosive farts - hahaa, god i've lost a good lot of hours at work cause of it.

i'd love to lend some sorta a hand or polygon
ya know should be like a Goldeneye spoof game, that'd be funny "The names Varner, Rich Varner"

hey! i got another idea! why dun the oldbies make a model of themselves (any model to represent urself!) for the game and help me out with the stori? that way, u guys have the privilege of designing ur own looks in 3D! Any suggestion?

hope by the time this game is finish, it'll be a big hit in the Forum! no need to sell outside! we just have fun blasting each other, and tell it out in Forum?

or maybe when the game is finish, we can try (i think this is tough) to make a link to this DBPro website server to access online multiplayer! (... wat a dream... maybe should concentrate to finish coding the game first!)

(i think i'm expecting to see one model that looks like Vegeta, and another one that looks like a kitty!)

probably a better idea, some Q3A kinda game - just blasting the heck outta each other ... that way you know the characters your killing are the actual members

if there is to be a model of me, gonna have the be of RavenVegeta design not Vegeta (too many of them already, i like being unique )

ok! so let see now...

1. Quake 3 Arena style gameplay...
2. Players can choose their own character (pls submit ur own "self" design!)

Should there be a story behind the game?

Or its just 'WHAM! BAM! Thank u very much' style?

If its just shoot-em-up FPS, then there's no need for Bosses rite?

Yeah should be some sorta theme to it... like erm...
"The DarkBasic team had been watching from the shadows of the Cyber-Realm spotting those who showed skill, or just happened to annoy them.
Taken out of time and thrown into the DarkBasic Pyramid of the Damn'd, the gladiators must now fight thier way in endless computer generated battles to get to the top and finally gain thier freedom back!"


i'm sure people can add more to that

LOL!!
Varner??? I thought it was Vanner

Anyway, I'd be interested, as long as I don't have to code

And BTW- No offense or anything to anyone but I am going to make a few corrections about myself here:
-I AM NOT A KITTY!!!! That is just my avator!!!! I do not want to be seen as the kitty, but as the hyperness inside of the kitty due to high levels of caffine and pure adrenaline
-The proper abbreviation is Rap, or Raps, NOT Lion!

Thanks

Story wise: The DB Gods are choosing the next person to join their team or something like that, by (adapted from Ravens above post) making the users gladiators in the DB pyramid.

Wow! Ok, so now we got:

1. A story whereby the gladiators (users) are within the DB Pyramid's DeathMatch Arena. Some are fighting for freedom, some are fighting to join the DB Pro Gods.

2. I got an idea,.. first round, the main character u are playing had to fight 10 other oldbies (should be AI) to the death. Once the area is clear and u've won, u get to go to the next area with another 10 more oldbies! (actually there are lots of them in real-life)

3. Finally, when all the rounds are finish (when u have 'cleared' all the oldbies!), a guard will be asking at the Gateway of Eternity, "What r u fighting for?"

4. And u've 2 choices of answer: Freedom or To Join The Gods. Either one if u have answered, he will tell,"U have to get pass me first." So u have to kill him.

5. So, when the guard is killed, u may advanced to the choices u've made. Either one, u have a set of Bosses to matched, until u have reached the Last Boss. (and ending scrolls...)

Now, my questions are:

1. Who wanna be the Guard to the Gateway of Eternity?
2. Who wanna be the Bosses to the Freedom choice? (3 Bosses)
3. Bosses to the Join The Gods choice? (3 Bosses)
4. Who wanna be the Last Boss? (i have one in mind!)
5. Any comments on the storyline? U all can give ur own ideas!
6. Anybody wanna contribute/help/anything to this game?

I'm still waiting for the models!

(dun wori Mouse! i'm still learning also! But this is one great game i wanna do in the next few months!)

So anyone who doesn't think I'm an oldbie, I changed my name a year ago, so I have been here like... since soon after the beginning anyway. And btw- the last post on the old Ideas and Suggestions forum was "Support for .MAP and .BSP" by Maniac...

Funny rap, because I always thought of you as an oldbie and never really recalled Bender...

You forgot Sgt.Slamy

I think we should aim less for a storylined thing and more for something like Unreal Tournament-- you just choose the map, choose (or customize...) your enemies, and fight...

But anything with all the oldbies in it would still rock .

wasn't Dr.Av aka Dr.3D aka GamerX2000 aka GamerX?
i'm sure there is more of the names in there somewhere ... he was a pain in the ass - but then again i'm sure alot of oldbies will want him in the final arena rounds

should think of something special for Raps Kitty
Hahaa he could be the end boss, trying to bite off your head or something - have him come in like the Rancor in ROJ - hahaa

Can see it now...
"The arena is so dark, small touches light the wet rocky sides. Blinding light from above in a square pattern are the best illumination!
I can't see my opponent.
:: The huge door at the end starts to creek upwards ::
Oh is this my opponent, the door is so large...
:: shrouded in darkness the orange fur thumps into the light ::

M - E - O - W!!!!"

Mwhahaaa

NO!
I'm NOT A CAT!!!
Oh well, I guess I brought it upon myself... As long as myself and the cat are known as two seperate entities, I'm fine. Whatever conclusions you draw from the caffiene and pure adrenaline shots are up to you

Anyway, it's almost an insult saying Dr.AV's name in the same sentance as Dr.3D and GamerX...
Dr.3D and GameX are one in the same, but Dr.AV (Dr.Avalanche) IS NOT THE SAME!!!

Aww... school tommorrow again :S Back to homework

Well i'm telling you this for nowt... bugger'd if i'll create that many models
TibSun2 has less than that - hahaa

probably a point... get someone to design, build & texture the arenas, figure out some sorta tier system and a set of the more famous peeps, (probably should vote) on who we all want in the game to shoot at and play as.
then anyone else can just release as update models

BOWOWOWOWOWEEEEEEEE!!! This is getting better and better!!!

Ok, now we got lots of cool suggestions! New ones are:

1. Arena Programmers/Designers: Needed programmers to design, build & texture several arenas, from Stage 1 until finish.

2. Engine Programmers: Needed programmers to develop just a simple FPS engine but looks cool [in the sense of DBPro environment]. This includes also developing the engine to follow the story from beginning until end.

3. Model Designers: Needed as much as I can! Maybe i'll select 5 - 10 people to help developing those models.

-----------------------------------------------

Damn guyz ... this plan is gets me all excited, i might wanna pay the people who wanna get in these positions!

What do u all u guyz & galz think about the plan? What does the Mods and the Great Rich thinks? [hehe! "I can NEVER be killed, for I am the Great Rich, God of the Cyber Realm & Ruler of the DarkBasic Pro Pyramid!!]

small note: in just 30+ messages & going, we really made a great games team! Thanks to everybody who's been with me until now to the day its done, especially Raps & Raven! [sniffs..]

maybe i'll just save this to put in the credits section of the game. now i'm just hoping for those people from the Team Request Forum or any available DBPro/DB programmers to get in the development team. Hell, it would look great on the resumes! [what games i did before? well, nothing much, just the greatest FPS game ever attached to an online community; approved & sealed by DarkBasic Pro officials!]

i think now the main ghist is down perhaps should start looking at what the arenas will be like, a coupla sketchs of some of them - weaponry and effects - powerups? - some characters ... i mean i'm all for having me in a game, but i'm not putting my REAL face in there
also think it'd be funny to have Rick and Lee with like Arnie bodies, be like those twin machine gun guys in Wolf... hahaa

thats a point, whatever you do - i'd love to see Akimbo weapons oh oh and you MUST have a Railgun, its the ONLY weapon IMHO - or if you go for realisic guns, gotta add the RCP-90

Wooaaah baby! Now we're really reeling in the games development! Blasting the heck out'of another DBPro users is not far from now guyz!!! Supports is getting massive by days!!!

Positions filled ::

1. Raps - Arena Designer/Programmer (waaaay cool man!!! We got Raps as our Arena Wizard!!!)

2. So far, Raven , DarthPuff & Denki said they are on the team, just haven't tell yet what they would like to do. Hope you guyz can tell out soon which position you think would be the best to suit ur raging skills on DBPro!! (dun worry Raven, we're not gonna put ur actual face on the game! we just require what would u like a presentation of urself / how u wanna look like!) But if anybody wanna put their own face, its welcome also! So far, i have gathered the names provided by Raps, and I think for the modelling aspects, we should take it nice and slow. Instead of modelling everybody first, we should try modelling "us" first! There's 5 of us rite? The game should start with 5 players to choose from, and after the game had finnaly done, and other people wan themselves to be in the game or wan a copy of the game, they will have to provide their own models, we will add'em in, and they can have the game after that! How'zat sounds? [suggestions!]

3. And guyz, dun forget to tell me ur real names to be put in this game's credit feature! I dunno about u guyz, but i feel its kinda good-hearted to know the real name of the person who put the effort to produce this magnifique masterpiece! (but dun worry, if u insist on ur real name, its ok to put just ur nicks!)

4. If u know ur superb confident in specific position/areas for this games , hope u'll grabbed the positions so we can start the development! So far, i'm documenting a draft copy for this game based on several ideas from this forum (from u guyz) and once positions are attained, i will start sending out the emails to u guyz regarding the whole games abstraction, plus the concept ideas/details according to the best skilled person who attained the position. In any case, if my draft ideas are not that detailed or miraculous, i alwayz welcome suggestions!

5. Oh yesh! Almost forgot, dun forget to include ur email address that u used regularly!

The time has already come gentlemen! Anytime soon, all hell will breakloose when we step on the arena!!! The DBPro staff will never expect whats coming to them!!!



p.s. - i'm also paying for anybody interested to make a game inside the Team Request Forum, with increase in $$$. Just in case anybody still interested, its still available!

well i'll be going by my current nick - and i'll be making myself, plus the big kitty boss (mainly cause i really wanna make that insane caffiene kitty in 3d )

but i'm not sure i'll want to do much more than that, try to remember i'm overstretched on projects to help the community as is - that 3hours a nite spare time doesn't stretch very far, and i can't keep doing all niters for something that isn't actually paying
(and don't even think about offering anything cause trust me ... you'll be nowhere close to the figure i'd want)

that aside, i'm working on the Quake2 engine convert ... so if anyone would like to help it'd actually give you guys all the formats you require and basically will just need to mod it for Arena style use

something to mull over, i'm still struggling on the PCX with memblocks - can't seem to figure out bloody 16bit highcolour
oh well ... another few hours tonight will be wasted on it, or i might just get the MD2 fully working

wow, how did I suddenly get ot be "programmer and arena wizard"? I said I could *possibly* designa *a* arena or two... Don't get me wrong, I'm all for this project and would LOVE to help, but frankly, I don't have the time, sorry. Now, I guess I could design all the arenas, but someone else would have to model most of them, and I definately can't program them! So heres a list of what I can do:

Design some arenas
Make a promo video or two...
Do a bit of art in Photoshop maybe...

Etc.

And Raven Vegeta: The cat should be really hyper, and be called something funky... and I don't want to be represented by the cat, just associated with it. So maybe a big boss battle would be me, and my cat. Something like that anyway.
