Damn right it does ;)

I'll try and provide some kind of an update this weekend. If we get an area finished off then I'll demo that. If not, I'll give a nice demo of the openGL lighting system which is rather sexy.

In other news...our website is up, and content has slowly started being added. Should be available for public viewing soooon.

As promised, another image for you...

This shows off some nice openGL lighting effects that we have. It's still a part of our test area (new area is still being worked on sadly)

I've just checked out the website. The piccytures are indeed pleasant on the eye and the whole prospect of it does interest me a lot. I never got involved in the original RPG but I'd definitely be interested in checking this out, though since the progress of the teams will be recorded for online playback I sure hope I don't suck :)

KMV: Looking for some puzzles

Post by Mystara » Fri Jun 22, 2007 12:57 pm

Greetings,

I'm about to start producing a simple playable prototype for KMV of about three rooms. To accomplish this, I need a concept for three different rooms - of different difficulty, to test the expressiveness of the engine as well as discover any bugs in the room building/playing process.

I thought I would offer this opportunity to anyone who might like to see a puzzle of their creation rather than outright create them myself :)

What I need:
A simple text description of the room and how the puzzle/challenge works. Feel free to include diagrams where appropriate.

Some key points:
1) Please don't submit excessively complex rooms. The rooms are all 3D and much as we'd love to, we simply don't have the time to create (eg.) a colossal 3D gargoyle (or even a small one). By all means, if you can provide a model and texture for anything complex, feel free to include it!

2a) Don't make puzzles too hard.
It's boring to watch people lose all the time
2b) Puzzles may have a random element - but if they do, they must not be lethal.
It's reasonable to give the players a basic combination lock without a combination and give them a time limit. But only if entering the wrong combination repeatedly doesn't kill them.

3) We don't (yet) have any NPCs
So no wall monsters, goblins, walking skeletons, etc.
Unless you want to provide the models/textures of course!

4) No sounds
The client doesn't support sound.

5) Please indicate if the group is assumed to have found some piece of knowledge before entering a room. For example, a causeway assumes that the group has found a combination (causeways are lethal if you get them wrong, so cannot have any random element to them).

So, if after all that you still have an idea - I'd love to hear it. Feel free to contact me privately. Either via the forum or via the KMV contact page
http://kmv.partreal.net/component/optio ... Itemid,35/



Finally, if anyone is interested in providing a link to the KMV website. A selection of banners and corresponding HTML code for them can be found here:

Cheeeeerssss!

With more thanks for Forester, the KMV site has had another small update.
This time, featuring a new screenshot of something that should be familiar to all of you ;)

Something was wrong with the DNS. I'm not sure what - but it seems to be fixed now.

However, it might take some time for your ISP to refresh the data. So I imagine it'll be offline for up to a few hours.

Thanks for reporting that!

Okay kay.

Lots of hidden things have been happening behind the scenes, and we've made a small update on the KMV website (http://kmv.partreal.net)

Hopefully we should be able to show you a small video soon :)

Enjoy!
