KoneKT, there may be some java parts of the game, but i am thinking more C++, DirectX sort of stuff, 3D MMORPG similar to WoW style of graphics etc.
It will be a VERY big project, so i don't expect anyone to stay here, but i do recommend if you want to leave, do it now...For some of us, including me, this will be a big learning experience. Learning new programming languages, new style of graphics art and work etc..
It will probably be quite a while until we have a playable part of the game, we will need to come up with all the idea first, and get our positions set OUT RIGHT.
Starting small is a great idea. Actionscript for Flash is a very solid first step in programming (but, just to emphasize a first step, think of it like a tricycle compared to C++ which is an F-14) because it takes away so much of the clout (wrapping variables, classes, etc...) while giving you a nice run down of the basics (functions, use of variables, etc...). It's also used in almost every Flash game out there so you've seen it before.Yeah, thanks for that KoneKT, because i will be honest, even though i have slight knowledge in some languages when it comes to creating a game in any of them, i honestly have no idea, so even for me, this is really a project that is a matter of learning, which is why i was thinking that if we get a team together, we could start with coding a browser based game or something, and start learning the basics as a team, and then delve into deeper programming eventually, with our major project goal as Highlander Online.
So it's also a matter of who wants to start with more basic games as a team, and then work our way up. Because i would be more than happy to do that, it would give the lesser experienced people like me a better chance at grasping all the concepts.
So what do you say? We start of small and work our way to our goal of Highlander Online? Maybe something Java based, runescape style with a bit more 'style'?
Or we can get contact the creators =p I think that was Hellsheep's idea =p
I like that idea... They have earned cash from the movie, maybe they would want to sponsor our game for a certain part of the profit?
yes I am :nuts:, no need to tell me... there's nothing I can do about it :biggrin:
Really though, you guys could just *base* the game on Highlander and not reference it in any way. Then you're not infringing on any copyrights ;-)
