Hi Hwikaa,
 
Your GFX are truely amazing. How did you make them? Conversion, redraw? PC or CPC? (Just curious).
 
Well.... in case somebody would like to make a game out of it... how would it run? Is is a point and klick adventure?
 
Can you tell a bit about the game, and the way you would like to see it run on the CPC?
 
Greets,
TFM

Hi, TFM.


Thanks a lot ! Well, these graphics are handcrafted conversions from PC. ^^


Maupiti Island is a point and click adventure indeed. Since it is the sequel to Mortville Manor and uses pretty much the same interface...





... it seems to me that it would be possible to adapt it to the CPC. But I may be wrong.  ;)


This is what it looks like :

Thank's for the Video! I watched 3 minutes and.... yes, sure it's no problem to port this to the CPC.
 
The pictures are all staying, no scrolling needed, the Z80 will be pretty much bored ;-)
 
So a conversion is no promlem IMHO. But for the screens Overscan should be used!
 
Actually I think it would be quite a lot of fun to recreate it on CPC.

Well... If you ever know anybody who would be interested (and have enough time) to do it, I'll be pleased to work with them.


Let's stop dreaming and start working ! ( ;) , Beb... if you ever read this. ^^)

This is the kind of game I'd love to work on, but I'd rather work on an original game (with original plot and gfx...). Not the same amount of work, though :) . The gfxs you did vary from very good to not-so-good. These last ones would require more work, I guess.

You're definitely right. This was nothing but an attempt, I'm aware there's still much to do.

Could PJA be used to create the game maybe (no point and click though) ?

Honestly I don't know. I should take a look at this tool (hERMOL also told me so). Since Maupiti Island's plot and events depend on a timed script, do you think this could be done with PJA ?

Well, Markus has experience with point-and-click games. His Elvira effort was amazing. Maybe...? ;)

There is still some bugs in PJA, and the lastest version is always on my hard disk  :D

But you can try It, I think it will be possible to do something with it.

I mean that I've not released the lastest version of PJA, the source are still on my PC, I should do a release for this version. And PJA is a PC tool for making avdenture games for CPC.

Got it, a release would be great! If you guys would work together this would also be a great chance for a serious debugging attempt ;-)

A release would be nice.

Another idea for what is worth : open the software on sourceforge, google code (or whatever), so other people can help enhance the tool ?

Sure ! By the way... I'd love to see his Elvira conversion but I can't seem to find it.


Demoniak, I've downloaded PJA. I'll take a look when I got some time. No doubt I'll have a lot of questions... ^^


Anyway, thank you all for your opinions and advices. Now let's try to do something with this material.
