Thanks Lev.

 NEWS:

1. I isolated the units and building used in OP2 CS and are now scripted and ready to go.
2. I will need some time to make the friction and else.
3. Icons are great.
4. Picture still needed
5. about 25% of op2 CS is finished.
6. OP2 CS will be free! Version 1.0 will be lame. But, over versions, it will get better!
7. When the Version is finished, if someone alredy has knowlage in working with gamemaker, i'd like that OP2 CS become and multiplayer game!!!

you got that wrong... If someone posts his icons, you can still post yours! And the same with pics... lol


UPDATE [/u]

I finnaly added a turret to our beloved actor, our Lynx! Instead using the laser, i put the Turret of EMP! It however uses Laser. I still need to work on the Enemy Vechs and Evac Vechs. More update soon. If you have icons or a good pic for OP2: CS, post it in OP2 CS bin topic!

UPDATE[/i]

Finnaly, i made explosion sprites, and when the enemy vech hits any object, he will reverso (cool isn't it) and after some time, drive again normally.
Added few scripts, there and there. What else... And yes...
VERSION 1.0 won't be a something...

Expect over version that some bugs WILL be fixed.
Before release day, i'l ask some people to Beta-test it.

I made version 0.5

Version 1.0 will have only 1 lvl. (let's not be so hasty)

etc... etc.... :yawn:

If there are any questions fell free to ask them

Sounds awsome! Nice to see the work! This kind of "dedication" is what is going to keep opu alive for a long, long time. Once i become more knowlegable it this area, i plan to contribute as well.

UPDATE

Enemy can move, but still randomly, when exits the sector, he will go back

Panther scripts still not finished. Added stones, canyons, and the colony wich our hero is looking for.

when something explodes, it will not use special affects, it will use op2 standard explosion frames

The laser shot lasts now a little less longer. The laser is not one continious line, the laser moves N W E S.

I haven't still scripted the microwave emitter and microwave waves.

I got an idea for mission 2

You will have to follow evac trucks to a location, and safekeep them from plymouth
THIS WAS THE BASIC




Still you are free to ask any questions :whistle:

UPDATE

Lynx and Panther can shoot. Lynx fires one Laser-emp shot and panther fires tho Laser-emp shots. Speed of firing is increased, speed decreased. Added the suicide button. :P if you wish to end this all. Still, there are some graphic bugs, when panther and lynx shoots bullet S and W. Graphics smoothed. Added cursor with sign "F5 to Save and F6 to Load", Save/load function working. About 75% of the game is finished, but this is the toughest 25% ever! The history of Colony Searchers is added, Laser-emp shot is more futuristic (hey, isn't that secret weapon?) Vehicle invulnerable to any kind of EMp by Eden tech. Plymouthers have stolen the Eden tech, so our hero is only vulnerable to explosions and lasers. The colony is a bit more bigger. Added a construction site near our hero. No tubes. If I can, i'l add Savant's voice to speak when our vech is damaged...

The order of testings:

Beta-Testing
[/b]

I will choose the testers.

Nobody seems to keep in mind that putting anything outpost 1 or 2 related on anything they make is illegal. the name outpost 1 or outpost 2, the likeness of any vehicle or anything resembling content from the games is breaking copyright law. we need to be coming up with new ideas for our own games. little things like flash games can skate by this if theyre nice but usually an executable gets the eye from lawyers.

There are much bigger concerns to address (along the same lines) than that dm-horus, if you're worried about copyright infringement..


As for this project, I'm hoping to see something come out of it, keep us posted. :)

Yeah, well, from what I hear fan sites are illegal. As is fan art and any kind of fan fiction. Basically this whole site could be considered illegal. I don't see any reason to single out this project. But even if fan sites are illegal that doesn't stop sites like this from appearing. Besides, many publishers enjoy the free advertising they usually amount to, or at least enjoy that fact that someone has enjoyed their work enough to make their own derivatives of it.

Besides, who would you ask for permission? The company that originally produced it doesn't exist, so you can't ask them. The company that bought out that company doesn't seem to acknowledge the existence of the game, so what are they going to say? And even then, who exactly do you ask? Most people here don't really know what the exact status of the copyright is, or who owns it, and even if we did, who in some big corporation would we ask who actually knew something about it or could give permission.

I'd say if you enjoy doing it, then go ahead and finish it. If someone actually took offense to anything on here and had some legal claim to the copyright, then I'd imagine they'd just ask us to take it down and we'd do it. Besides, gpgarrettboast is right. If they wanted to cause trouble over copyright issues, it would have been done long ago. And keep in mind that people who worked on the design of OP2 know about this place and have either sent or replied to emails here (positively).

Uh-oh.
Well i knew (i think) that OP2 and OP1 were copyrighted along with all logo's pics and graphics.

But yeah as you here said, the company denies that OP2 and OP1 exists, and that company what maid op2 is dead. (probably)

Now, yeah. How long opu exists? Someone has (surely) found out about this forums, but the don't give f***. Why? I don't know.

Now, if there is ANY problems about copyright, i WILL not release the game.

The last thing i need is to get sued. (is it rightly spelled?)

Just PM me.

As has been previously commented when fears about retribution from VU or Sierra came up - very few gaming companies chase down people who create fan games. If its free, and credit is paid where it is due, I doubt they will care.
