How about, changing sounds?

it will happen, but it'll probably be the absolutely last thing i add to the editor.

Several reasons for this... the trickiness of making sure sounds fit (length and pitch) to replace the originals, the fact that no 'template' etc can be used, and that multiple files have to be replaced, so you cant even package them all up together very easily.

I'll only do the God Speech though.... everything else is too 'game specific'!


And yes, i am very pleased with what i've done with this project, given that i started last year and stopped fairly quickly, i've finally found a great flow with working on it, and i am enjoying the progress!   

i have, for a very long time, wanted new levels on MLM (i worked the basics out many years ago, and even did some manual god-editing then too!)... i never thought i'd make it as easy to edit as this though!

my apologies, updates are getting a bit slower i admit.

i'm at the hardest stage of coding. i think....
 it works, and well, but there is cleaning up to do and ends to tie-up!


slowly picking through it though.... file-selector is currently being chipped away at.


FOL - want to build me a cheap webpage like the Cannon Fodder New Campaign one sometime?  something i can just add text and pictures to!

http://www.ppa.pl/cannonfodder


i think i will include a little section on how the data is stored / the editor works, as I dont think its documented anywhere else.

If you want, but I feel I could make something easier for you to use. Would save you editing the html, but thats only if you want. I code start coding it then, once you supply graphics, ;).

hmm.. i dont really mind how it's done!  that html one is nice and fast and works even on Amigas ;) but i'm not too bothered.

i'm ok with html basics, but i'll only be adding text and pics anyway!

i'm sure i can get some placer graphics knocked-up. it's only the top banners and screenshts you need anyway!

Right, i really need a break from the MegaLoEditor for at least a couple of weeks.

Perhaps i will upload a third demo video, but i have a beta being tested and some additional graphics being made up, so i will wait for those.

atm, i am a bit sick of looking at the game/editor so it's probably a good idea for me to have a play with something fresh and come back to it with some passion for the final push....
thankfully there is only one major feature missing (sound editor), although there are still a number of smaller bits and pieces i want to add along the way. The most important part (the level editor) is only missing a few tiny bits, and the God Graphics editor is almost perfect. Most of the parts left are just cosmetic.

I hope anyone awaiting the release of this understands my reasoning... i want it to be perfect and i want to continue to enjoy making it!

advice please!!

i am currently working on the "de-sex" patch, which removes any indication as to whether a God is Male or Female. As such, i've had to come up with some alternative "titles" for when you win an island. These have to be no-longer, or shorter than the original titles given (otherwise i'd have to do a lot of patching of internal memory locations that I am simply, not doing!!)

as such, i've grabbed all the titles, and worked on alternatives (on the right). Please let me know if you think these are any good....

more done. number of men per game and number of men per epoch now patched (0-65536!)

"de-sex" option is now in place, just need to finalise the address locations and actually patch in the text.

help option or sound-editor will be next ... neither of which will be small tasks!
