You mean something like this?



I can clean it up into a module later, but basically it just gets a drawing surface the size of the room, and puts it on an object, then draws circles at the vehicle's position every frame. It creates a thick line, and it isn't too slow. And because it draws one every frame, you can make the character it follows do curves if you're careful enough.

The flair can come later, but it's simple enough. The transparent vehicle would be absolutely trivial to do, if I remember correctly, that can just be an Overlay set to be transparent.

(the character is just there for debug purposes, it would just be a line in the real thing)

I'm glad somebody took up the challenge!

From here on out, though, let's keep the "critics" and development of them out of this thread (stick to PMs) or it'll get too cluttered up in here.

Yep, from the description it's exactly what we need! Even if your module code is dirty, it's fine for us... May I be as bold as asking you to try it out in a scrolling room that uses the "smooth scrolling" module? Just to make sure it doesn't need modifications.

@StillInThe90's : We already have an animation ready for one of the maps, but it was a quick prototype, and thanks to a proper script we'd be able to create as many maps as we need very quickly.

@Darth Mandarb: Thanks for your patience! I realize we're borderline to the forum rules, we're doing our best! :)

Those holidays have totally destroyed our productivity! Check that out: Our private forums look dead ans there has been approx. 0.0000 new production in the last few weeks. :=

But we're slowly recovering from the sun, and we'll soon become freak-nerds again! Stay tuned! :)
Oh, and it goes without saying that we still need all the helmp we can get! Artists, scripters, music, etc.

We're happy to announce that Christian's experience with us didn't ruin his motivation and didn't generate an intense feeling of disgust (who would have thought?), so much so that he started working on yet another new background!

Meanwhile, Adeel and Tremulas have started scripting the entire Spanish chapter altogether! "What's the Spanish chapter?", you're asking. Well, it's the chapter that takes place in Spain OH GOD I ALREADY SAID TOO MUCH!

Do you really think people will pour in and help us make the coolest Indiana Jones fanadventure with the most people involved ever with your rockstar gta attitude of 'accidentaly' leaking information? The intellectual capabilities and imaginations of people here are way too sophisticated to fall for such a bland scheme to have fun and push some pixels. And please don't reveal that we have a HD PiXels interactive cutscene with a naked sophia hapgood, this should rather be kept secret*

Just to throw in my two cents, Monsieur OUXX you're getting spammy and double posting a lot and trying to hype up a game that probably isn't even 25% done. No one likes in your face marketing.

Okay...

First; I'm not sure if selmiak is joking around or not but let's keep that kind of negativity out of here (if it's not joking).  If you have issues with how the game is being pimped let them know via PM and let me worry about making sure things stay on a proper tack in here!

Second; to the team working on this game (I've lost track of who's who)... your original post is now in violation of the rules and needs to be updated immediately with at least 2 [fully visual and completed] backgrounds.

Thanks.

I'm the original poster for this thread. I'll update the post with the needed background pictures.

Sorry for any violation of forum rules.

Darth, I'm deadly serious about discussing alien terraforming ;)
But if it came off as offensive or negative or offtopic or made your sithsense tingle, please delete my last post...

Hi everyone!

What we're posting here are actual news about the progress of the game :)
But we're absolutely keeping in mind that double-posting is forbidden on the forums. However, since we post news no more than once a week, it's hard to find a good compromise between double-posting and editing an old post, which would make no sense. Thanks for letting us know that we're too pushy. We already took good notice of Darth's reminders last time.

@Armageddon: It's not about marketing: it's about recruiting. The game is a freeware, so it has nothing to do with sales. We're not "hyping up", we're stimulating fans, to make them participate. You can't recruit for a game that's virtually invisible. I sincerely believe that giving a small piece of news once every few weeks is not "in your face". Keep in mind that the "Fountian of Youth" project has started 10 years ago and is still not finished (so much so that they decided to release it in chapters (!) ).

@Darth: We'll update the first post, no problem.
It contains 2 functional backgrounds (additionally to the 6 other backgrounds and the few more backgrounds in the thread itself) But I understand that it's a bit ambiguous since we deliberately labelled them "obsolete".

@everybody else : here is news about the project:
- lately we've released our Mirrors module
- today we share our Travel Map module, thanks to the help of Scavenger and our little scripting challenge from last month : http://www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk/forums/index.php?topic=49021.0



As always, I'll conclude with: WE NEED HELP :D

Okay... it's been a week.

When you have the screenshots required send them to me in a PM and I'll unlock this.


Screenshots added, post updated, carry on.

Having the supernatural stuff show up at Indy's college is a great new twist, but aren't evil skeletons a little cliche?
