It's kind of inline with the show. War you know... ;).

Anyone else up for testing the game for me? I'm planning on changing up radars sprite a bit still but I got a bit side-tracked with my business and it's gonna take a while. So in the meantime would be the perfect time to fix any bugs in the code.

I'm still debating if I should make the game intro more substantial. Since the plan is to make this a series of freeware games I really don't think it's all that important to add a lot of flare to the intro. Or is it? The intro to the story for now is just a blank screen with narration and a short dialogue between some characters. It feels a bit empty. What do you guys think?

My personal opinion is that any fan of the show going into a MASH game that didn't open with a version of the opening title credits with a version of Suicide Is Painless playing is maybe not gonna be feelin' the vibe you are working hard to create.

Rest assured, Mandle. The opening screen has a picture of the crew and the song running in retro-style like it would be if orchestrated on, say, a Commodore 64.  :)

Yeah, there were a couple of versions of the title screen to be honest. I went with the photo of the cast that appears in the game. The one from the actual opening shot was terrible so I scraped it quickly. As for the intro song... It's a midi rendition of the movie opening. I couldn't find anything better. But if there is someone that is willing to program or record an alternate version of suicide is painless then I'm all for it ;). I also looked far and wide for the "my blue heaven" version from the show and movie but couldn't find it anywhere. Just clips from the show and I can't use those.



BTW: I was stupid enough to make a proofreading/translation file and I set it to default without backing up the files. Now the dialogs are all screwed up. I managed to correct most of them before I sent the alpha to heltenjon but I noticed some later on that are already fixed now. So, heltenjon if you need the updated version of the alpha just give me a holler. Some of the dialogs will make more sense now  (laugh)

Maybe ask around if there is anyone who would volunteer to make you an animated or comic-book style version of the opening credits scenes in the art style of the game?
That would put the fans in the proper mood for the game!

These characters look cool. Why do they all have blue eyes?

Because the actors that play them actually have blue eyes  ;)

Drawing a comic book style intro shouldn't be a problem for me. I'm an illustrator by profession (side work to my regular job) but I'm just lacking the time. I just got a big order in for some work and even the main aspects of the game are getting a bit postponed. I want to make a new Radar sprite, since this one looks too "manly" for instance. Little things like that.

I redesigned Radar's sprite a bit. I think it looks better :). The new sprite is on the right.

I'm still looking for a Beta tester or two. Heltenjon is helping me out but another set of eyes can't hurt :).

A quick update.

The game has 3 testers and it's progressing amazingly.

It's really polished, more so than I was ever planning it to be. I'm getting even more excited about the game myself now :).
