I was thinking you might be able to implement some sort of code for cutscenes?
Like
LockAllControls //This stops the player from mucking up the scene
LetterBox //Self-explanatory
PaceTarget //Make target moves x paces y. (X=distance Y=Compass/directions)
SendCutsceneMessage //After setting ID this gives the right speech sound.
PlayAction //Causes target to perform set animation.
And a few others maybe?

Actually:

PaceTarget = AddWaypoint
SendCutseneMessage = SendMessage
PlayAction = DoAction

Letterbox should not be needed, but DisableControls and FocusCamera might be....

I think cutscenes are a pretty good idea, given they don't play the game for the player. Also, they are good for the "ending" where/when you rescue Lord Bishop, and it would be great for gestures/body language/beating up or rescuing Lord Bishop when given that chance.

You would probably need a command like

WaitForFrame - halts script updates until a certain frame.
WaitForWaypoint - halts script until a certain waypoint is reached
WaitForMessage - halts script updates until the script receives a message from another script

Yeah.
And control locking is definitely a must.
But other than that, we should be good to go as it is.


Oh, and we need to contact Aaron.
If at all possible, we should have the original voice actors do the voices for the endings.

Maybe cutscenes for K'nife and Lord Hagen too?

PERFECT! Takes care of the fact that the Rogue and Soldier never say ANYTHING. Maybe I'll do a few voices for my Tinkerer/Inventor character.

I hope I get a chance to record again...
I'd like to try Lord Bishop's voice.
I have something in my head, and hopefully I'll be able to make it work.

...Too bad this is, like I said, only if I get the chance.
And that doesn't happen often. Razz

Hey, here's an idea!
(And sorry in advance for volunteering other people for this...)


Instead of cutscenes, the ending could be told through comic book -like sequences.
Kinda like that comic Hiroy did. He could make more, and if he doesn't want to color them (I know you said once you didn't like to), Agent of Dread could, since he seems to be pretty good at that.

This way, we wouldn't have to bother with the voices, which would really be a pain; we don't have all the original voice actors still available.

I have had an idea that's not really comics but watercolor illustrations like a storybook(similar to Aaron's art). I'm not at the level that I would attempt it...... yet Very Happy

I was thinking illustrations like that would be good for the end credits (see the thread I just did), too.
