I suggest contacting Antidote from the forums to fulfill your programming role. He's one of the only people on the net to actually reverse engineer Twilight Princess.
Title: Re: Twilight Legends
Post by: Avatarus on February 13, 2013, 04:26:38 pm
Thanks for advice, I'll try to write him. BTW, there are already 3 programmers in our team. I'm creating gameplay elements and the other two work with additional software, reverse engineering of sounds and dynamic music. But still, any help is appreciated.

I'd have to learn UDK but if you need ;D

EDIT:
OH, I thought i recognized that name, You went to Emutalk's topic about the BMD importer for 3DS Max.

LMAO @ Link picking up Ilia xD
Title: Re: Twilight Legends
Post by: Avatarus on February 13, 2013, 05:11:39 pm
Not necessary. TP reverse engineering is also needed. Our programmer currently works with sound sequences, perhaps you can boost the process.

Do any of your programmers know PPC asm? If not, I know a fair bit and will find the routines using the framework.map file stored on the game :P

btw For the record, Antidote's responsible for this project: http://code.google.com/p/skyward-sword-save-editor/ ...lol.

And many other zelda-related stuff. I do wish you good luck on your project though. The fact that you already assembled a team sounds promising. And I like your presentation, too. Best of luck to you!

The UDK is cool. This project is cool. Zelda is cool. Avatarus is cool. Timpanipinikiwikininies are NOT cool, but we are very lucky that this thread has nothing to do with them. Because of these facts, we know that this thread must be cool.

(tight butthole, I'm mainly posting in here to help me stay updated on any progress :P)

Title: Re: Twilight Legends
Post by: WolfPupLink on March 31, 2013, 02:59:32 am
Is it really? After all most of the Sprites are used from other games so wouldn't that count as a form of reverse engineering?

This is looking more and more polished all the time :) Link's animations look a lot tighter too, which makes it look much more like TP. Well done dude, well done :D

I can't believe I didn't see this project until today...  This really looks cool!  TP is one of my favorite zelda games so the thought of getting more TP is very exciting indeed.   XD

All I know is GM so I can't really help on this, but I sure can applaud and encourage!  I like this a lot!  I hope it really goes far!

Title: Re: Twilight Legends
Post by: Gnalvl on November 13, 2013, 04:07:42 pm
I really like the idea of playing on PC with a proper mouse-controlled camera, the way you've done it, instead of the original GC's "push left to turn right" and no option to look up and down without going first person. Have you considered reworking the mechanics to take better advantage of the mouse/keyboard control scheme?

For example, Z-targetting was only meant to compensate for the fact that N64 had no precise method of manually controlling the camera or aiming your attacks while on the move. On PC, with the mouse, you don't need an auto-targeting system, and games like Archeblade (example footage (http://youtu.be/rA7Krt6AJmA?t=2m58s)) show how you can have more skill-based combat by letting players roam freely while aiming their attacks manually wherever they want.

You could do the same thing with Link, for example, double-tapping A and D could do his sidestep jumps, double-tapping S could do the backflip, double-tapping W could lunge forward, and double-tapping W + left-click could do the lunging jump attack. This way you never need to change modes to do your moves, you just aim the mouse where you want and enter the commands.

You could also scrap the context-sensitive jump and simply allow Link to jump on-command anywhere. This would allow for far more engaging platforming gameplay, as players have to manually pilot and time their jumps.

This control scheme would easily translate to Xinput gampads by placing camera control on the right stick, with the attacks and other commands on shoulder buttons rather than face buttons (so you can use them while aiming the camera). I think it'd be an interesting variation on traditional 3D Zelda gameplay which really takes advantage of UE3 and being outside the constrictions of Nintendo hardware.

Lastly, it'd be great to add difficulty settings so if you crank it up, fights even with basic enemies like bokoblins are more fast-paced and exciting, like this: http://youtu.be/vATyp-Zs4NA?t=37s

Ack, double-tapping.  >:( It's just so annoying when a keyboard thinks you only input once when you quickly double-tapped, or it thinks you took too long to double-tap and counts two steps. It's such an awkward control in my opinion. Plus, if you were close to an edge and wanted to jump, pressing once could make you fall off before you could jump. If there was a 'jump' key, though, it might be a bit easier. As long as it's not in an awkward place compared to the other keys, that is.
Title: Re: Twilight Legends
Post by: Avatarus on November 13, 2013, 04:56:28 pm
No, I'm not going to change traditional controls. They are familiar and intuitive for most players. Z-targeting allows you focus on the battle, so you don't need to worry about accuracy of your attacks. In addition it makes battles look like they are cinematic.

Yeah, I used double-tapping as a mere example, simply cause double-tapping to dodge is part of the stock actor class in unreal engine.

Personally I prefer to have a dedicated key. Dodging with the middle-mouse in Warsow and using left bumper in console Unreal Tournament 3 is much better than double-tapping the keyboard in the PC version. With the wrong keyboard, double-tapping can be carpal-tunnel-enducing.

To save space, you could also have a combined lunge/jump key. Tapping and releasing the jump key quickly could result in a quick hop in whichever direction you were running, while holding the jump key for a long time could cause Link to bend his knees in preparation for an "olympic" long jump or high jump, allowing him to cross big gaps or climbing high ledges.

It's a shame the traditional controls won't be changed, because Nintendo has already wasted a lot of potential repeating the Ocarina formula ad nauseum for the sake of tradition and familiarity, rather than pushing forward and continuing to innovate at the cutting edge of what's possible on today's hardware. Games like Overgrowth will ultimately leave Nintendo adventure games in the dirt.
Title: Re: Twilight Legends
Post by: Avatarus on November 14, 2013, 04:06:44 am
First of all, it's a sequel to TP, not a separate Zelda or whatever game. I'm trying to save the style of Nintendo, so don't expect olympic jumps, acrobatics or mega-super combos with a sword.
Title: Re: Twilight Legends
Post by: DIFTOW on December 19, 2013, 06:04:14 am
I think Z-Targeting is just boring, and outdated.
Twilight Princess is also pretty outdated now both graphically and mechanically (was designed for Gamecube).
I wouldn't mind seeing a parry system implimented instead of just spamming the attack button.
What you have looks good, and like it has taken much effort; so I think it would be more of a payoff to not limit yourself to 2003 hardware standards.
I mean you can do what you want, it is your project. Just putting my two cents in.

On a side note.  That background music is pretty cool too!  Somehow it makes me think of Zeal in Chrono Trigger crossed with ALTTP.  I like it!

Just a reminder that we're looking for modelers and texture artists.
Original Hyrule Castle Town from TP is almost moved to the engine but we're going to add new areas and interiors. It also needs some new textures.

Looks great but I have one suggestion: I think the textures are too undersaturated.
Castle town could look a lot better with more saturated colors. It would be great if you would increase the saturation or change the color tones.

I agree with 4ndaKava (also with how it looks awesome). I would like to add that it seems the character textures are a loooot darker than the rest, making them look odd and stick out.
