One other thing you might want to think about is adding new, fresh, original content. Some of the classic remakes out there have additional content added in just to spice things up. Maybe some additional events, crimes to investigate, etc. That might be really neat.
Also, if I might ask, other than just combining the games into 1 big game, is there any reason in particular you are doing this? All the PQs except 2 already has the VGA versions out there.. Why not just do an upgrade/remake of PQ2?
Thanks for the tips/ideas
Adding new content is not currently on my priority list, but it is certainly a thought I have in my head, since the day I started with this. I was thinking about maybe a bank robbery, hostage situation, some changes to original quests, etc. to bring in a bit of a twist from the original, but i want the main story to remain the same. The game must have the same realistic feeling as the originals.
Why not just make a remake of PQ2?
First off, there is already a guy making a VGA version of PQ2. (Although it seems that thread died in early 2006, nothing has been heard about this project since).
Secondly I thought it would be really nice to have all three games combined to have the whole Sonny Bonds story in one complete package, without having to run three different games.
Thirdly, I did at first want to make only a PQ2 remake, but then I realized how easy it was to get all the art from PQ1 & 3 using SV. I wanted to use PQ3's graphics, Sprites & Backgrounds to recreate PQ2, but then I thought, why not combine all three into one, since I already have all the art & backgrounds at my fingertips.
Finally, the location of the Police Department, Mall, Bert's Park, Jail, Courthouse, etc. are different in all three games, which seems to me to be a bit unrealistic. I want to fix some of these technical issues.
I hope this answers your questions?
