Uhhh.... why? :uhm:

Unless everyone round here magically became capable of making entire games overnight, it's not likely. Just the fact that it requires programming is bound to prevent almost the entirety of this forum's community from doing it.


I don't know how, and I don't know why, but this is totally Sheep's fault.

Its an interesting concept, and i don't think it would require alot of coding. Changing the camera viewing angle to 90 degrees, disabling the mouse, disabling the turn left and turn right keys (not step left or step right) , and you've got yourself a sidescroller. Of course someone would need to make special maps for this mod, i.e. maps that just go straight forward and don't require turning of any kind.

It would be pretty fun. It could be like Final fight or Streets of rage JKA style :D

He wants a whole new game. Trying to make a 2D game based on a 3D engine will never work.

The amount of work this would require is colossal: - Sprites need making. - Backdrops and level tilesets need making. - Levels themselves need to be designed. - Gotta program the whole thing so that everything does what it should. - Have to program a whole AI routine and subroutine for every entity. - Powerups have to be designed, added, and programmed.

I'm gonna stop there, because the rest is above my head.

But, you get the idea. You'd have to design a several new engines for it to cover each aspect - graphics, sound, Artificial Intelligence, input, output, scripting.... The list goes on. Of course, you could just make it a Flash game, but personally I'd advise against that - Flash doesn't give you the freedom and power you'd need for a large-scale project.

You may as well go buy a SNES and a Super Return Of The Jedi cartridge....

Lol i didnt actually click his link, but that a completley different thing to what i was talking about.

vaderrocksf i don't think something like that could be done by indivduals here. You probably have to go to a different forum.

But what i was thinking of could actually work, and if someone here has the right skills maybe they would like to give it a go?

Well, I could make this myself (I've done that sort of thing before) but I really, really don't want to. What would be the point? Sorry, but unless you find some absolute JA fanatic with no life, or suddenly produce a LAAAARGE wad o' cash, it's not going to be done.
