Title: Monkey Island demake RESURRECTED!!! A new programmer.
Post by: Edgar_España on 08 Jun 2012, 20:47
Curse DEMAKE resurrected.

Hello dear friends. First, I am a Spanish guy that dominates not quite English and I am using a translator, so perhaps it's not easy to understand my English. I am sorry.

Well, after that, I start. As many of you know, a boy named 'Jackpumpkinghead' began has make a version "DEMAKE" of the Curse of Monkey Island. Here is your forum thread on this page:

http://www.adventuregamestudio.co.UK/YaBB/index.php?topic=42299.0

I was one of many, it seemed an interesting idea, and I followed the progress of our friend. Personally, I was looking for someone that would like to draw my own Monkey Island FANGAME funds, because I have prepared a great script (as everyone says of his screenplay on a FANGAME of Monkey Island.) (Already are more than 100 people). So I came across your project. Although personally I don't like too much the script of the CURSE, it seems very, very charming to see this version, with the original graphics of the saga.


Thus bequeathed the day I discovered, like many of you, that our friend JACKPUMPKINGHEAD left the project. It gave me enough penalty, but then I found that put the project in the hands of who would want to continue with him.

Well, as I have not found anyone who wants me to do the funds of my own FANGAME, (while I have searched lot and for a long time), I decided then to follow with his project, to continue learning to program with AGS and also with the PIXELART. Of this a year ago, and I have well advanced. Had not told yet anything to anyone, but inside very little I have a DEMO to upload, and I want to be sharing this work with all of you.

So here I am. I will upload some screenshots and I say what you think.
It must be said that as I do not have anyone that makes me the room's, I transformed the originals, and I've adapted them to the type 2 Monkey graphics. Or is that I have not restricted to clone the rooms, but I have adapted them. In catches may not appreciate, but comparing them is it quite noticeable.

More fun and also more difficult and laborious has been to transform the characters, and I have to say that I think that the result of so much work was worth it.

Well, I will not write more than time. I just want to point out two issues: the first is that I still don't have music. I'm trying to get in touch with the musician who was working with JACKPUMKINGHEAD in the original project, but do not get it. If you read this and want to get in touch with me. If there is another musician who composed in MIDI, the same applies: I need a musician.

The second thing I want to say is more important to me: what I want is originally develop my own FANGAME. I have the script, I have more than 6 characters, I have the knowledge, the time and the desire, need only one thing: that someone draw me the Room's... not asking for much: with drawings in black and white (with shadows better, but do not need) could start. Another friend can paint them with Potoshop. I would like to say that if I've done on this project, it is only with the intention of using this DEMAKE CURSE as curriculum, to find someone that wants to make my bankroll and start with my own FANGAME. So there is the message.

Nothing more. I hope you enjoy it! Edgar

AGH!!!! And above all one last thing. Many thanks to Jacpumpkinghead for his work. Thank you.


Here are the screenshots.

And here a comparison between the room's original and the result of my version:

One thing: the my project's room catches are landscape... not is very well why, perhaps because I did catch with my laptop, which has the panoramic screen. The fact is that the game itself is not seen, but in a natural way. Anyway...

This. Is great news! Good to see the project resurrected; and heck, so many screenshots!
I HATED the COMI graphics even when they were supposed to be top-notch. Yes I did. Seeing them recreated in MI2 style does me a spell of good! Best of luck with completing this demake.

Just out of (semi-professional) interest: The way you demake the character sprites gets you some pretty good results; just *how* time-consumisg is it? Are you catching every frame, or do you just get some basic poses and animate these by hand? Character animation in CoMI was good and quite distinct.

Right now im not at home, just got my mobile to reply, but i just couldnt wait to say: i absolutely fell in love with this idea.ways been a great fan of letterbox graphics and this is like a dream come true :-)

Well, thank you for your criticism, Ghost!

Respect for the big question: if I've done captures each frame of the animation of the Characters, the answer is that there have been everything, but basically, the animations more elaborate and difficult, Yes. It is also true that a single screenshot I've taken different versions. Finally, there was time for everything in this year of programming, but I think that the finish is very, very decent. To see if I already upload a DEMO and you can see directly.

And Yes, I have spent much time, but it is my childhood dream was to create an adventure game and thanks to this project 'inherited' I'm learning enough to make my own game. In fact before it had no idea of programming. I am self-taught and I've learned to see the tutorials in youtube. And the frames do with PAINT. In the end, is something that encana me.

I have to say that for my personal project I've created incredibly good characters animations from scratch, before making this Demake. After working with the frames of the characters of the CURSE, I got a technique in PIXELART which I will serve to make some more good own original animations of what I never thought that it would be able to.

Just get the cancel message. Wof! Thank you guys, give me desire to continue with this!!!!

Continue the good reviews! Many thanks to all!

In respect of whether we will have or not English version, well, will depend on whether any English-speaking it want to translate. For my part I am using a translator, or that I am not very good with English, and certainly not enough to translate it.

But if someone wants to translate the DEMO once ready, for I do not there is no problem. Just the opposite. And the same goes with the rest of languages.

And remember that I am looking for cartoonists to make the Room's of my own FANGAME!

Greetings to all and thank you!

Post by: selmiak on 09 Jun 2012, 21:36
but if you are using a translator I might think you are translating from the english original, then why not keep these original lines?

other than that... looking GREAT! :D

Lovely, lovely. Hope this gets finished, the backgrounds are perfect. I do think Guybrush's color is a little bit off though, and the sizing of him. Elaine could lose the leather vest too. Looks great though. :D

Well, that is not so exactly. I'm not using a translator to translate the game, I am using to translate my comments in this forum. For the game, I am using the original on Spanish, so I will confine myself to transcribe everything.

Anyway sure appears someone who wants him to translate.

Anyway, thank you for your criticism!

If it is true that even I have not fixed the light and shade of Guybrush according to the room. Regard that is small, it is truth. In some room's not noticeable but elsewhere if you can see a small gap. It is bad to use the original screens... though I have transformed them, there are imperfections, but hey...

Respect of Elaine, you're right. Perhaps should be already remove that vest, to give a little more than originality to the character.

The truth is that I still have quite a few details to improve. Why I want to review the game a bit before you upload a DEMO. I would also like to finish with a couple of puzzles that I am busy, and soon upload the Demo.

Thanks for the criticism to all! Give me encouragement to continue, although remember that what I really want is to create my own FANGAME, and so I need someone that draw me funds from my story!

A strong greetings to all!

Wait, what? Did you or did you not?

Also, while the graphics are looking great, I'm seriously put off by the all of them being squashed... ???
Judging from the screenshots you've put a lot of work into this already, but why didn't you keep the aspect ratio!?

Nice one, I like the squashed look, kinda recreates the cuteness of the first games.
Good luck with this one!  (and if you want I can help you make a cool cover in 3d with a 2d paintover :)
I did some Monkey art a few years ago;

UPS! It was a mistake of the translator! Of course that the comments makes me want to continue with this! I am very grateful and see positive critique of people pushes me forward more and more. I'm doing this with love and enthusiasm, and somehow I am doing a d ela childhood dream, but my real goal is to create my own fangame, whose story I have prepared.

On the gap sizes. Well, it's a matter somewhat complicated for me. The truth is that playing the DEMO, then not so noticeable, but it is true that it could be improved, although I can't think of how. I have no knowledge with Photoshop, and already have transformed the Room what I learned to do. But if you think that it is a notable flaw, perhaps I can ask for help from a friend to resize some areas and mix with others. For example if it did with the Chair of the Rotthingham captain. It was a lot of work but worth because ates was very, very rude.

Anyway, wait to play the DEMO, and if the difference in sizes is very clear, I will try to fix it later.

In any case, thank you for your criticism, friends!

Wow, Wow, Wow! How cool!

Do Hey, and you do not would be interested in preparing a few funds for my original story? I am doing this Curse DEMAKE M.I. as curriculum to find someone that draw me funds from the Room's of my own history. With a job as yours, and then pixelandolo and trying to give a RETRO touch, could do wonderful things together... do not want to try? I have to say that the day that starts with the history of my FANGAME surely we will create a very interesting adventure, and have someone like you in the team would be awesome!

Would you not like?

Edgar_España - If you want to talk about other projects (collaborating on other projects) please take this into PMs (with Karens or whoever) and leave this thread about this game.  Also, I have combined another double-post, please stop double-posting.

Now... let's keep this thread on the rails people.  Remember, this is not the critics lounge...

As for funds, nah, it's one of my all time favorite games, so I'd rather do it for free :),, (Im not very good with traditional 2d painting (haven't got the patience, heheh), but with a 2d paintover I can make a 3d pic look like a 2d pic, (and if you ever need a couple of posters or a cover art/PR thing, let me know! :)

edit by darth - as I mentioned above this is not the critics lounge.  I have removed the non-game/critics lounge stuff from your post and PMed it to you (in case you want to PM it to edgar_españa).

Sorry Darth! Ill send him a PM instead, thanks,

Hey folks,
Im glad to see someone picked this back up. I would however ask about the change in direction... The previous version was taking it back to the style it would have been made at the time, and this yours seems to be the backgrounds and characters simply resized with some pixel fixes. The aspect ratio is different causing the squashed look of it all.

The main point of the original was a re-imagining... what would CMI look like in the style of MI2. This current incarnation is simply what would cmi look like with a quarter of the pixels. It is definitely a great way to learn AGS, however if you think this is a lot of work, imagine what it is like when the art isn't already made and the primary logic of the game laid out for you to copy.

I apologize if it seems I am being rude as it is not my intention. I just wonder what this current approach really achieves?

that reminds me of an interview of Al Lowe (Sierra On Line developer) by a German magazine,,
the interviewer desperately wanted to know how much fun it all was,, and how amazingly lucky he was to create computer games,
"Yah yah, tell us about your fantastic work day Al!..."  Al looked at him and thought for a second; "Well, imagine sitting down in front of the pc and not getting up before 2 years later, that's basically how it is to create a computer game!",,
after that there was a moment of silence... :-)

it is an insane amount of work, but I think having all the backgrounds ready and basically done for a huge game like this is a great opportunity. If you really want this to succeed you probably have to be equally insane and manically obsessive ;-), but it is possible! so don't let anyone tell you it's not :P

...But I must admit it seems to be going the right way! You seem to have found an efficient workflow and consistent style. Some of the sprites reductions could be better, but are already matching the required quality standards.

Keep on the good work!

OPSs! I am sorry really. I have a problem, I am using a translator to communicate in your forum and some messages do not understand them at all... including yours. If don't understand wrong, me you are saying that if this section of the Forum talk about Monkey 3 DEMAKE, I can't say that I'm looking for a cartoonist for a future project, it is that?.

And also not be what is a WP...

I am sorry if I have caused any problems.

Well, your reasons have logic. Anyway I have to say that it is not only a little change the pixels and reduce all of size. A real headache has been to make the most of the animations of the characters, and those of Guybrush run from my account.

Obviously, I have no problem with the story, which is already written (and that my personally seems unworthy of the first two parts), or with many other things.

Is what is start a 0 character. In fact, I have more than 7 prepared for my own original game, and also original story. the problem, as I quoted above, is that I have who makes me the funds.
For this reason, meanwhile, I did not leave the world of programming, so that is why I wanted to continue with this project.

I can assure you that although I myself am not drawing funds, all this is a great, great job, and I am sure will appreciate more when you upload the DEMO or a video that I upload to Youtube, while I finish preparing the DEMO, so you can better see how are the animations.

So I want to refer to what has been said Karen, that is a piece of heaven.
Thanks Karen!!!

Still want to leave a note... This is a preparation for the FANGAME of Monkey Island I want to develop for years.... in a future creed (and is that too much to ask) if I assure you that I have a great original idea for a FANGAME of Monkey Island!

In addition, there is a guy who has already offered to begin to draw my room's. have not seen his work so not is very well what aspect has its style, but in principle I'm quite excited.

I hope that one day you can be making criticism on my own project 100% original!!

Anyway, thanks. It should be all sorts of criticism. Good, to encourage me, the poor, to myself, and know to see where there is something that can be improved.

Thank you!!!

Thank you very much, friend.

I want to upload a DEMO but still missing several things to be to my liking. I think I'm going to upload a video to YOUTUBE so you can go see or little the work, but with the demo I want to improve the appearance a little.

Yesterday I finally did the views that while Guybrush (his head) talking, body gesticule, in the style of my 2... and has been great!

But of course, that going to give me much work now, because I must introduce this gesture in an infinity of dialogues already programmed... so I have to give me a review by the SCRIPT... anyway...

For this reason, among other minor things, going to takes a little DEMO. But promise a video soon, ok?

Thank you!!!

Hello partners!

Well, I promised a video and I have prepared one... bad thing is the pathetic quality that was recorded. I've searched a programme to record the screen of the pc and that is all they've got.

One day I will try to upload a video with higher quality, but meanwhile, there is a little work. I hope you enjoy!!

Thanks a lot!

It is very likely that at one time someone wants to translate it. For example, there is an Italian guy that is going to do a translation when the list demo, and is likely a German boy wants to do the same. So surely someone of English-speaking ends up translating... be cool much!

Thank you.

We`ll see. I have not bet. It didn't bother anyone or commit so serious lack. It has been an accident. Is it really so serious?

I responded with 3 words in Spanish, just thanking for a boy your comment on Spanish which has seemed a detail. That hurts someone?

With regard to criticism, critical Spanish is a synonym of dialogue... maybe
in English no and why there has been a misunderstanding...

I'm sorry, but I think that it should not be so rigid... we are not insulting or upsetting anyone.

However, from now on I will go as if I was in the army. Very carefully

Hello friends!

I have good news for the project. A colleague has offered to make the MIDI music!

So I'll have to wait a little more to upload the DEMO, but everything is so you memberships with more finish when you download the DEMO.

She just send me a message and have not spoken with her, but by what I said in his message, she is eager to.

So soon we will have this DEMAKE with music!

Now I'll count...

Edger

Yo sólo quería hacerte saber que recibí un correo electrónico que pueden ayudarle con su problema de fondo de arte.
Aquí está el correo electrónico:

Hola, me presentare, me llamo Rafael González, y actualmente estoy terminando bellas artes.

Menuda buena noticia me he llevado cuando he visto que estáis buscando un dibujante para el proyecto de Monkey Island, yo mismo tambien intente empezar una aventura 100% original y como bien dices tengo un guión y un desarrollo, pero por encima de eso lo que me encantaría es rendirla homenaje a esta grandiosa obra.

Tengo un blog con unas cuantas imágenes del proyecto que comencé, también se trabajar en pixel y sobre todo en original ( acuarelas con retoques o rotuladores, como en su momento se realizo el MI2)

http://poxitan.blogspot.com/

Me encantaría poder formar parte de vuestro equipo y quien sabe si poco a poco abrirnos paso en el mundo de los videojuegos.

Un saludo Poxi

 Espero que esto ayude

Here is the email:

I figured this guy might e of some help to you in finishing/polishing up the game. And since you both speak Spanish, you could communicate a lot better than you and I.

 I hope this helps
Josh

Many, many thanks, Josh!!

It took to read the message and come back to Forum because I'm changing of House, and just now my world's been around... but this is great news! I just write a message for this guy, so we'll see what happens. But already it is beginning to interest many people, so I hope that soon, I`ll start with the new project.
About the DEMAKE, just now I have assembled my computer (into some box, in the new home). They spend several days until it can again set, so for now you have to wait for this DEMO. In short, in any case, thank you, dear Josh.

Already will be uploading new news!           EdgarMonkey!

Hi Jack,

Just one thing: I am interested by translating the game but you put the whole AGS engine in your website. In reality, you just need to put the rts files & no more, not the 65 Mo of the engine ;)

Thanks

Oh sorry, I mean Edgar Espana not jack ;)

edit by darth - then edit your post, instead of double-posting.

Hi man. I'm sorry, but once your message is translated, I did not understand very well what you wanted to say. (Sorry but not much English control)

If I took that you to become responsible for the English translation of the DEMO, right?
And tell me something that you can do it simply if you pass 'rts' files. I looked inside the mother folder but I have not found files rts...

Not be very well if I've heard or what. In any case, the game is now being testing. Once delete errors that may be, I will climb already, because I am not going to do anything more (in fact have more than 2 months without advance)

The good news is that, although we now have not started, I have more or less a team and soon we are going to start with a real (still based on the Monkey universe) original project that I will open a thread in this forum.

However, with regard to the translation, once tested, I explain how or what you need, and I command you that you btranslate. There is also an Italian boy interested in traducirloa their language.
I have no problem, once of finished the DEMO, spending what you do need to be translated...

Thank you for your attention...

(Spanish version below / en español más abajo)

Hi Edgar. I don't know if this could be of any help to you given that it's in english and your grasp of the language seems to be a bit shaky, but in this link (http://www.gamefaqs.com/pc/29083-the-curse-of-monkey-island/faqs/60819) you have the script for "The Curse of Monkey Island".

I don't know whether you are using a similar script in spanish or getting the lines directly from a spanish version of the game, in any case I think it would be much better to have the original script rather than making a translation of a translation.

I take it you've never played the english version, if that's so then you may notice there is a scene that was cut out of the spanish edition, it's the song that the pirates sing when you finally get a ship to leave Puerto Pollo. My guess is that they took it out because it was particularly hard to translate.

As for the .rts file another user asked you for, you need to make a new entry under "Translations" in the AGS editor, that will create the file in your project folder.

Hola Edgar. No sé si esto te será de alguna ayuda porque está en inglés y tu dominio del idioma no parece muy sólido, pero en este enlace (http://www.gamefaqs.com/pc/29083-the-curse-of-monkey-island/faqs/60819) tienes la transcripción de "The Curse of Monkey Island".

No sé si estás usando un documento similar en español o si estás sacando las frases directamente del juego en español, en cualquier caso creo que sería mucho mejor usar el guión original que hacer una traducción de una traducción.

Supongo que nunca has jugado a la versión inglesa del juego, en ese caso te darás cuenta de que hay una escena que se eliminó de la edición española; la canción que cantan los piratas cuando consigues el barco para salir de Puerto Pollo. Imagino que la quitaron porque era particularmente difícil de traducir.


En cuanto a los archivos .rts que te pedía otro usuario, tienes que crear una entrada nueva en "Translations" en el editor, eso generará el archivo en la carpeta del proyecto.

I think the Background don't look quite "classic". To give it that classic look, they should be repainted and you should use 256 colors only like in the old days.

Post by: Armageddon on 26 Sep 2012, 02:32
Actually they used like 186 colours for backgrounds and then 70 for the characters and inventory and UI.

I disagree with some of those character conversions. I think Haggis and the lemonade guy should be the same size as everyone else.

Hello friends of the Forum. I have State disappeared long time for several reasons, including the death of a family member that I've been doing me charge personally. I've also been moving, looking for work, and I've finally... emigrated to Brazil!

I have been here a few days and I am adapting me. Many will think that I've abandoned the project but it is not the case, and although it took like 6 months without opening the AGS, soon I'll put me again with the subject. Not much than I'll upload the work I did with the DEMAKE of the Curse of Monkey Island, and somewhat later, I shall begin with my own project. I already had some painters linked with the project but I am afraid habrelo lost because of my forced retirement of the last 6 months. Nonetheless I hope soon restructure my project and get me hands to work.

With respect to the DEMO of the DEMAKE, I was about to subrila when I discovered that after the opening credits there is another introduction video... so once the DEMAKe adaptation of that video is finished uploading  all work...

I will back... a greeting everyone.

To purpose, thank you very much for the transcribed screenplay.I will be very helpful when to resume work.

I like what you are doing but I think it would be a good idea to "demake" the Curse of Monkey Island Guybrush and Elaine sprites rather than using the ones from the older games, because they do look out of place, especially noticable in the hair salon scene.

Post by: Edgar_España on 25 Feb 2013, 21:35
It could be, but I've actually made this game to practice, and find illustrators for the room's of my own script, in some time. Is that many things can be improved, yeah, but worse take me long time... so much for a game that, really, is not my real objetive... Let's say that this is a curriculum for artist search. It is true that hair salon gives a problem with size. However, when upload the demo, now you'll see as many other places if they are well. but yeah, everything can be improved... but unfortunately is not me well do the funds, but I do what I can.
