I've been gone for months - and no GRAPHICS?
« on: March 15, 2008, 11:41 »

I'm sorry if this is answered somewhere already, but my most recent post search gave me a post from 2006.

The only reasons I've been following this is for the Graphic version. I got tired of the game over time and never touched it again, not because it wasn't good, but ASCII style got on my nerve.

I'm amazed by now that there is no real graphics. There was a project before, the only forum I knew for that is unfortunately gone.

This is the only thing I'm waiting for, and I don't even know how long I've been waiting. I'm not trying to whine, I just want to know what happened to that... and if its still going to be done someday.

Just wondering, what will this Graphics Version entail? Simply tile replacements for ASCII characters, or something else?

Hey now, make DoomRL the best roguelike ever, keep those priorities straight man :)

tile replacements for ASCII characters

This will probably be it.

There was a pretty awesome tilesheet done a while back, does anyone still have a copy?

I barely have some frames of the entire awesomeness that was drawn already.

Thanks for the promise, Kornel, but be careful with them. Trust me that I won't forget it ;)

I just hope that there will be an option to choose if I want gfx or not (I prefer ASCII roguelikes).

Whenever Kornel is ready, I will be on hand to do the graphics!

And yes, they will be optional.

Do you still have that sample tilesheet? That was a really nifty bit of artwork and I'd like to see it again..

Dang Derek!  I didn't think I would ever enjoy a graphical roguelike but I think that your graphics would be a welcome addition.  The only thing that could be better is if each sprite had a two-frame idle animation and firing/dying animations like in the Doom FPS.

Man those are some nice graphics. I was picturing something much much lamer. I mean, wow! If that had animation too... well I mean that starts going beyond rogulike doesnt it? More like an SNES RPG or something.

I remember that project, i think the general idea is that there will be both graphic and ASCII version available at the same time.
