I wouldn't know where to start though. Just felt like mentioning it. :)

Start at the top, then work to the bottom. Much more fun that way!

First you'll need a steel tube 40mm wide and about 950mm long. Then of course you need the rocket propelled grenade.

This is a good place to start:


Finishing is something else, though...

If only it didn't require too much programming. :)

You can wait for NeverWinterNights. It promises enough tools to easily create your own RPG without having to worry as much about the artwork since so much is provided.

I'm not familiar with the programs. Can it build say Might and Magic style? I probably won't ever really do anything ever knowing me, but this is probably my last free Summer until I retire, so I am looking into only mostly wasting it instead of completely wasting it. :)

Plus I like simple maps appearently. :) I enjoyed playing around with the map editors for HOMMII and Warlords3-DLR in particular and even SMACx and the player made editors for stuff like MOOII and MoM. I even drew a 'country map' for a die-roll playing game that I never had I chance to use. Ironically, I labeled a mining town in the mountians Morgan. This was well before smac. :)

If you figure out how to make it let me know! I've had an GREAT idea for Pc game for several months now and due to the fact that i trust very few ppl and escecially on the net, i've mostly just kept the idea to myself and been waiting to stumble on someone who's honest and willing to help meout with it! I'm to paranoid i guess, but w/o a demo you cant ge a patent or copywrite or whatever and w/o risking it being stolen, ya cant get a demo! lol

there's a program out called DarkBasic (domain is probably the same) this is apparently quite a good game creation tool. Check it out if you want to build a game yourself!

Its not bad although I've heard blitz basic is faster if you only want 2d.Darkbasics 3d is pretty quick if you know how to do it (and if not I'll try and remember)

We could take Kell's idea and combine it with my ideas and some of you all's ideas and make a collaborate effort rpg game stationed on the Counterglow site. :)
