Progress on Madano
« on: May 17, 2005, 08:39:22 AM »
17 May 2005

Today I got this nice forum for Madano. :D Which is really great. :D :D :D

At this point I have a few conversations/interactions written down, and have already studied many tutorials. :P I would like to point out that my free time is somewhat limited, and that the next weeks/months will be rather busy for me. But I will post regular updates to keep you informed of the (steady) progress. :-D

Greetings. :-D
I am.

I've managed to get Madano in my group. :D Of course he still doesn't have much to say, but he's there and that feels very good. :D :D :D Although I couldn't have done this without help with some silly beginners mistakes. :P So thanks guys. :D

Anyway, during the next month I'll be away a lot, so progress is probably going to be slow. :-) Even though I'll continue with thinking of new ideas for this of course, I can do that everywhere. ;-) :D

Just a small update before I'm gone for a week. :-)

- The first encounter and the conversation that follows the encounter have been written.
- Two rather complex conversations have been written as well (one during several boring lessons ;-) )
- I've worked out some ideas for his custom items, and will start with learning how to make them when I get back.
I am.

Perhaps I should not, but that is not for you to decide.

There's not really much progress to report. I've started making his first custom items, but I haven't placed them in the game yet so I don't know if they do what they're supposed to do. :)

My main focus at the moment is graduating in August and relaxing through role-playing at Narbondel. You don't have to worry about me quitting with this at all, I just can't give it the focus it deserves, and I don't want to create something of bad quality.

Anyway, there'll still be some progress until August, but there'll probably be more progress after graduation. If all goes well that is. :roll:

Thanks to Ilmatar from Sol Ek Sa I got a new portrait for Madano! :D :D :D

And I'm almost done writing the first part of one of his quests. :-D

Of course I *should* have finished my second report for school by now...  hm... yeah... :roll:

*gets back to work*
I am.

I'm back again. :D And during my break I:

- Partly rewrote and recoded the joining conversation.
- Coded every conversation that wasn't coded just yet (which was actually relaxing ;-) )
- Wrote and coded 4 event specific conversations.
- Wrote and coded 1 weapon specific conversation.
- Wrote and coded 2 area specific conversations.
- Wrote and coded a few area specific interjections.
- Wrote and coded 6 banters.
- Created his book, staff and Nebbin = his starting equipment.
- Created 3 altered weapons
- Created a special spell = innate ability that shows up later.
- Tried to get something strange to work, but I'm not 100% if it's actually working. :P

Apart from that I've been thinking about several things, but you'll hear about that later. :-D
I am.

Arvan has become an official member/NPC of this mod. I hope he's happy now. :p I've also written and coded three banters between him and Madano. :-D
I am.

All right, I have some good news and some bad news.

The bad news is that my comp was damaged/corrupted in such a way that we had to use our last chance to repair it and had to bring it back to how we got it from the store. Meaning that we lost *everything* that wasn’t stored somewhere else as well. All the software and programs, all our files, all our/my photo’s, all our (saved) games, all the mods, portraits, everything. :cry:

The good news is that my computer is fixed and that I kept my dialogue files saved on another comp. :-D

So right now I need to make the CRE files again, the tp2 file, the items, the spells, the scripts... everything except for their dialogues. The annoying part about that is that I had already done so. Making them once is not a problem, making them *again* is very frustrating. It’s not difficult work, it just takes some time if you want to do it right and I need to remember just how I had it in the first place. But I’ve reinstalled all the mods, modding programs and so on (you really don’t want to know how long that took :roll: ) so I can start on repairing the damage. :-)

I’m thinking about making up a balance of what I already have, mainly because I keep forgetting which conv/banters/interjections haven’t been reported yet. :P

I don’t think I’ve mentioned a few short conversations between Madano and Arvan just yet. Those 5 banters are area/quest specific and I’m quite sure that most will never see them. Which is too bad cause I’m somewhat fond of those pieces of interaction. Still, there’s a chance that someone will see them, just because many won’t play the way I play, and will therefore have a real chance of having Arvan in the group when they do those quests. ;-)

Apart from that I’ve written a few normal interjections (instead of short banters). I’m quite sure I’ve written more that I now forget to mention, but that’s why I’m going to make a balance of it next week or something. ;-)

Well, that’s it for now. I’ll be back when I have more to report. :-)
I am.

Perhaps I should not, but that is not for you to decide.

A somewhat overdue progress report, but better late than never. ;-) After solving the comp problems I’ve finished the following things:

- tp2 file
- 10 new interjections
- 6 new event & area specific banters/conversations
- 7 very specific flirts (Madano initiated)
- 2 banters and 2 conversations for Arvan’s first quest (not yet coded)
- 1 banter and 1 conversation for Arvan’s second quest (not yet coded)
- 6 (I think :P ) new banters between Madano - Arvan
- 2 CRE files for Arvan’s first quest
- 2 items

I’ve also remade Madano’s and Arvan’s CRE files, but that isn’t finished yet since they now only have one CRE file. Once I’ve finished making their personal items and such, I’ll complete their CRE files and make them available at different levels (depending on the party level of course).
I am.

Perhaps I should not, but that is not for you to decide.

Amazing, first I had a very productive week, and then RL was giving me problems again. I cannot *wait* until it’s February. Eh, if I’ve managed to graduate by then that is. :roll:

Anyway, here’s a small update. :)

- 2 banters (part of Arvan’s first quest)
- 3 banters between Madano and Arvan
- Their raised/resurrection & gypsy talk
- 5 banters between Madano and Arvan, but I’m not sure if these will be part of SoA... depends a bit.

As I said, not much to report. :-) I really wish it was February. :roll:
I am.

Perhaps I should not, but that is not for you to decide.

Hm… well, I’m usually not superstitious but now that I realise that it’s the 13th, and now that I’m looking back on how today went... :roll:

Anyway, a progress report. :)

- Madano – Arvan banter (SoA or early ToB, depending on which level SoA is ended.)
- Somewhat early conversation (conv) between Madano and PC.
- A ½ conv (which means that this conv will be included as option into several other convs.)

And that’s it. Even less to report than last time, and I doubt this will change the next month or so. Unless school burns down... hm, that’s a thought. :evil:
I am.

Perhaps I should not, but that is not for you to decide.

Just a few more weeks before the final school deadline... I’m not nervous at all, nope, no need to worry. :paranoid:

Anyway, I made some progress this weekend and today. :)

- 2 banters between Madano and Arvan
- I changed a few of their banters, as well as splitting some of the larger ones.
- 2 encounters are now written as well (which is good because the first of these two had bothered me for quite some time)
- 2 conversations between Madano and the PC about the above encounters.
- Finally finished a spell that shouldn’t have given me this much trouble. :p
- And 5 interjections, which I almost forgot to report.
I am.

Perhaps I should not, but that is not for you to decide.

More progress has been done, both on the mod as school. :D It’s almost finished now, school that is. :p

- 3 Madano – Arvan banters (including 1 for ToB)
- 3 interjections
- Class specific conversation (mages/sorcerers)
- 1 weapon specific conversation
- 1 area specific conversation
I am.

I’ve once more made some progress, so it’s time for another report, right? Well, that and I have to wait another 30 min before I can continue with Travian, so there. :p

- 2 items for Arvan
- 2 drow banters between Arvan and Madano, as in when they transformed into drow. ;-)
- Conversation between Arvan and the PC, which is only available if you follow a certain path while romancing Madano. I also shouldn’t have finished it at 1:30 am... :roll:

And I started working on my own story again. :D Which is completely irrelevant, except that it will consume some of my writing time. :-D
I am.

Hm, I’ve been rather quiet for a while, haven’t I? I did continue working on the mod, though, really. :p

I’ve almost finished Arvan’s first quest (just two more conversations and some coding) but lately I’ve been rather distracted. Narbondel has been revived, and that’s just far too much fun. :D :D :D

And, of course, some other things like RL and a painful right wrist. That problem is almost solved, though, so that’s good. :D

Regardless, I should be able to finish that quest soon... when I manage to drag myself away from Narbondel in the free time that’s available for writing. ;-)
I am.
