It's hard to create a tribute for a game series if you create a totally unrelated game isn't it? ;)

Of course we've discussed this issue several times. I think Nintendo probably has the right to tell us to put the site down and stop developing it.
But why should they?

The FS2 community is small. The FS2 players aren't exactly Nintendos target group. Most of them probably don't even know Starfox. They will not buy less Starfox games because of the mod, cause they probably won't buy one anyway. At the best rate, we might even get some of them interested in the franchise.


To be honest I fear they're not even thinking about this, cause they probably don't care, or don't even now our project.



I don't think we'll ever be possible to port the game to a console. Appart from the needed code changes (we do not have a coder...), we'd have to alter the whole content.

And to be realistic, we couldn't release it anyway. How should be contribute it. The only possible way would be to ask Nintendo to include it on a demo disc, or something like that.

A commercial contribution is prohibited by the license of the FS2 open source code.



You shouldn't worry too much about this matter. ;)

Yea, none of this really matters anyway. The real focus here is FSO, and the capabilities of the SCP. Only with those would we have the ability to modify it as we have. Star Fox is just the universe we're using, just as much as anyone else MODs for other science fiction or fantasy games or whatever.

It's a tribute. It's a MOD. It's not commercial. And I highly doubt we'll ever have anything to do with Nintendo beyond a C&D letter.

Maybe Volition could sue us. If they consider this project as ad for Starfox, they probably could try it.

:nervous:

But we're not related to Nintendo in any way, so I'm not sure about that.

sorry, had a quick question.

Is this going to be voice acted in different languages? (ex. German + English...?)

If so, that'd be great, cause I don't think I can learn German :/

It's going to be voice acted in English.  Unless DaB wants to do all the voices.  Which would be rather entertaining.

Well, maybe when the game will be finished, some of us might translate the game in other languages and perform voice acting but it's not sure...

Eeh, no warez here.  Have you tried Blender, though?

http://www.blender3d.org/

It takes a bit of wrapping your mind around.

There's also Truespace 3, though I think the general concensus is that it's designed by a monkey on space crack.  Oh, and I don't have the URL off hand.

system specs yet?

Quote from: athalla
eh, no warez here


when you see a name like game warden, you think "free outdated version of 3ds max 1" or "old games for free"

in other words, i thought this was an adonware site like HoTU

(Late reply to this Takashi gem...)

Actually when I see the name Game Warden, images of Ranger Smith Kicking Yogi's ass for stealing pick nick baskets comes to my mind...

Woah! I completely missed that posting.

Takashi... if you don't stop posting things like that, you'll end up getting banned for a bit more than three days...

well, so far there's no definite release date given except "when it's done" as has been said a few times in older topics. We've also been given no definite release date for the preview version set to replace the cancelled demo, aside from the answer above...

and welcome to the forum by the way
