Topic: Sonic: Project Diamond (WIP title)

Hey guys, Gabrimax here.
Great news! I've decided to try to create a Sonic fangame using the Sonic GDK engine!
The title (WIP) is Sonic: Project Diamond.
I didn't create any level besides the HUB world, which i'll put some screenshots later, when i'll finish it.
I thought of an Adventure-style game, but only with Sonic.
For the Alpha i wanted to put 3 levels with the most iconic scenes on every Sonic game: A zone like Green Hill (where the game will start if i manage to create some cutscenes and such), A lava-based level and a water-based one.
Let me know what you think of it, and for those who want to help me with the project... Well, i need some help, but i don't really know how to give you the project neutral

And Now, Screenshots!

http://i60.tinypic.com/2lat3rt.png <---- Yea, i don't have a lava material for the lava lake, nor i can't create one... Can someone give me a lava material please? *looks at Andrew*

And now, some in-game screenshots!

Let me know what you think about it, and please, if you have any lava material you can give me, i would appreciate it a lot smile

Re: Sonic: Project Diamond (WIP title)

Update!
Finally created a lava material! (it's a static texture for now, i'll animate it later if i find a way)

Although you can see the lava here, I have a problem: when i click the button to start the game with the startup kismet, i can't see the lava material.. can someone help me please? sad

EDIT: I managed to show the lava material in game, but as soon as i die in the map it disappears hmm Anyway, video! big_smile

It will have more levels and special warps, the Alpha will have the 3 stages said above for now.

Re: Sonic: Project Diamond (WIP title)

Yeah, I like Unreal, but it's extremely annoying that I have to use it on a PC that can't really run it right, and the ridiculous system requirements in general it seems to have. It really is a very good engine, though.

Anyway, good luck with it, Gabrimax.

Re: Sonic: Project Diamond (WIP title)

Does this game need pixelshader

13

Re: Sonic: Project Diamond (WIP title)

Good question wesrocks... I think if it's implemented already into SGDK then yes, it requires pixelshader, if not... well... it isn't necessary xD

Re: Sonic: Project Diamond (WIP title)

Yeah that is pretty cool actually, reminds me of Sonic World in Sonic Jam, but with HD grade graphics.

Re: Sonic: Project Diamond (WIP title)

Re: Sonic: Project Diamond (WIP title)

I think Green Hill Park will be more "linear", then the other two levels, Grand Abyss Zone (WIP title) and Lethal Lava Zone (WIP title too) will have more exploration smile

Re: Sonic: Project Diamond (WIP title)

Guys, i have a problem with setting up cameras, does someone know how to properly switch from another camera to the standard one? (The camera you get as soon as you enter the test level of SGDK).
If someone knows how to do it, then please, give me information with an Email or a PM of how to do it because this problem is driving me nuts! sad
