Total War Discussion - The Balcony / Total War: Warhammer Announced
« on: January 14, 2015, 11:27:09 AM »
First off, sorry for the long leave of absence. I was browsing reddit and I came across this:
I knew that CA had the rights to a warhammer game but this is the first sort of evidence I've seen that they're working on the game. Thoughts anyone? I'm hyped seeing as the warhammer mod for rtw brought me here. An official game will be awesome.

General Gaming - The Arcade / Insurgency

Anyone else got it? If you find ultra hardcore shooters fun it is awesome, especially if you play with a squad on coms. I can play it on my fairly armadilloty laptop at high fps and to me it doesn't look half bad graphically. Also, it's only £12 on steam so get it whilst it's hot. :)

If anyone else has it fancy playing as an Exilian squad?

The Beer Cellar - Forum Games! / How fast can you read?

Staples have made a test to see how fast you can read, it will ask you 3 questions at the end to test if you have read it properly, not skimmed so pay attention.

I thought it would be fun/interesting to see how fast people on exilian can read. My score was 553 words per minute which is 121% faster than the national average.


Don't do it multiple times as it seems to be the same passage, so just do it once and post your times here and we can see who wins. :)

Anyone here play Civ 5? I've got both Gods and Kings and brave new world and was wondering if anyone else played?

Computer Game Development - The Indie Alley / Nations of Nyselia
« on: January 27, 2014, 05:26:00 PM »
So this thread is going to be about the new, fairly rubbishy text based RPG that I am trying to make.

I'm going to throw in some fairly good backstory (I hope) and stuff surrounding the gameworld, or at least that's the plan although be warned, my creative writing skills are a bit rusty.

Here's a brief overview of the land of Nyselia:

In the ancient and wondrous land of Nyselia there are five powerful city state nations. In the Great Forest of the North there lies the proud Nation of Dratia, renowned for its hunting grounds and its huge lumber yards; Dratia is a city of great prosperity. In the wild grasslands of Nyselia there is the majestic city of Iaios, the trade hub of the land, its merchants wear flowing silks and dine on rare delicacies whilst their underlings hawk their wares in the great forum. On the great western coast, nestled in the Shard mountain range, is the port of Osecia from which overseas trade is conducted, the source of the river of gold that runs through the land of Nyselia. In the Shai Desert of the South there is the oasis city of Erilia from which the famed silks, wines and papyrus of the desert come. In the foothills of the east from which great volcanoes rise is the city of Utashini where the great magma forges are worked, producing the finest weapons and armor in the land and vast armies are trained, all for sale to the highest bidder of course.

Dangers are to be found all over the land, Orc strongholds to be cleansed, Bandits to bring to justice and assorted dungeons and caverns to explore. The roads of Nyselia are not safe, with no one city state willing to guard disputed roots between cities.
Within cities there are taverns or inns where quests can be obtained and where weary travellers can rest their heads. There are also markets where all manner of goods can be bought and sold, weapons, armour, food and raw materials such as wood or steel. By doing quests you gain a reputation and when this gets high enough you can go to the town hall of a city to receive a quest from a mayor of the city, often these will involve sabotage or clearing a dungeon. Other activities are available in cities, you can fish, cut wood, smelt, hunt and many other things (if I can be bothered) to gain both money and experience.

That should give you a nice overview on the feudal/capitalist/democracy thingy idk, fantasy, medieval world I'm trying to create for you guys here. Now I just need to get off my ass and make it. :D

I'm also going to start to try and post a short story from each city during development, the text from the stories will almost certainly be used in the game at some point.

Thanks for reading all of this and not getting bored. :)

Hi guys, I recently decided to try and pick up a programming language and after browsing the forum I decided to learn python.
Anyway, I made a text based game where you have to try and get out of a dungeon alive. It's really basic and probably really clumsily done but I wanted to make it all random so it is, the combat is done randomly and so is almost everything else.
If you want to take a look at it the files are below. You will need python 3.2 or later, just place all of the files in the same folder and run to play. Tell me any bugs and also any much needed improvements (I am sure there will be many).
So yeah, that's it really. Please give me some feedback on it if you can, I plan on using pygame to develop the concept further in the future.
Thanks, Tom  :D

Warhammer; Total War / Mod starts loading screen then crashes.
« on: January 15, 2013, 06:26:24 PM »
I don't really know if I have got the mod correctly installed or anything but when I click on the shortcut in the WHTW folder with the Rome total war disc in, the small loading box starts then the screen goes black and the thing crashes. Any help please. I probably haven't set it up correctly as i'm not too good at that side of things but I really want to play this awesome mod. Any help will be much appreciated, thanks.
