Full Throttle is one of the best games there are under the Adventure game-genre. It would be best to make a fan-game in same genre.(Yeah it would)

We have moved back to the RPG!

If you want to help me sign in and tell me what you want to do and give some evidence of your skills.

What is needed:

Background\Tileset artist
If you can draw FT-like backgrounds and/or tilesets, youīre welcome.

Storyline writer
I can help in this part too. Get the cliches out of your mind and be creative.

AGS Scripter
If someone knows how to use AGS better than I do, you can make some scripts and other stuff.

Sprite ripper
Sprite ripping is an important thing too.

Team members at the moment
Origo - Yeah, thatīs me, the leader of the project. I also draw backgrounds and work on the sprites and the storyline too.
Alek123 - Works on the sprites, backgrounds and the storyline.



Thatīs all at the moment.

I can´t really tell, 'cause I don´t have wide screen yet, but I will get one soon.

Edit: If you want to help me making sprites for my game, you can use this generator(I don´t use it much by myself): Link. (http://charas-project.net/charas2/index.php)
Try to make these characters:
Maureen(I´ve already started to make Maureen sprites), some Rottwheelers(No bikes needed) and some custom characters, anyway you like, 'cause I might use them, 'cause the plot of the game is multifaceted.

This project looked good at the first meters, but then I faced many problems. I lost my inspiration and everything. I still have the project and I could try to make it again... If somebody would like make a plot, 'cause I´m not good making any fangame-plots. So...
I´m sorry I let you down, but you could try to help me with this and give me a new interest to make this game by creating a great plot. Send me a PM if you any suggestions.

Alek123

How about something like, Ben is retired and then some old enemy returns and he is forced to once again don the Polcecat jacket and do stuffz?

I could probably help write some dialogue.

I think thatīs pretty cliched. Nice try, though.

gos
01-22-2010, 04:02 AM
how about: while ben is getting in the kickstand he finds bikers team in it, which he hates. ben and his gang goes into a fight with them, the polecats gets defeated. ben wakes up somewhere in the desert, his bike is crashed into pieces. so he should find another way going. like putting a trap on the road so when another biker comes he will fall, then ben can use his bike. the bike will be kinda broken, but at least not into pieces :)

and of course when he wake up, he must go find where the road is. be cause he is in an unknown place in the desert.

Nah. If he is always getting unconscious, I think he can´t ride a bike anymore.

Let´s forget those "He wakes up somewhere"-things. Let´s do something a little bit original. We need something deeper.

My stupid idea:
Father Torque gets killed by somebody. The legacy of Father Torque will be given to Ben, but will be secretly stolen by Rottwheelers.

Rottwheelers tries to bribe one of Polecats to assasinate Ben, but they failed to make a deal. When the Polecats hear about this, they´ll get furious and start a war with Rottwheelers.

Polecats are victorious. They return to Kick-Stand. Quohog(The bartender) is pretty jumpy and the Polecats are wondering what´s going on. Ben says:"Do you still remember my opinion about your nose?" And Quohog says:"Please, don´t hurt me! I´ll tell everything!"

You might think the rest.
Or do a better plot.

P.S: Does anybody here have skills to draw backgrounds like there is in FT? Because I´m thinking about changing the genre. RPG isn´t good for FT, but Adventure game will be too hard if no one can draw the backgrounds. I can draw the sprites.

gos
01-22-2010, 04:06 PM

Origo

I drew this as an example of my sprite drawing skills: http://f.imagehost.org/t/0504/BenBeta.jpg (http://f.imagehost.org/download/0504/BenBeta)

You should open it on paint and zoom, so you can see the real beaty of it.

I know he looks like a gorilla, too long hands, too short and ugly boots, but I was tired and the computer lagged.

Edit:
I was training to draw hand-drawn-looking pics with computer. It´s nothing special, so I didn´t make a new thread for it.

01-31-2010, 07:10 AM
Wow. I see there's some progress going on. Good Job!

Your idea with Father Torque is quite good. Still i wouldn't kill anybody , since that character may appear in the original Full Throttle 2 (if there is one coming). But anyway , it is a fan game , so don't mind that. Great job , again.

PS : The Ben sprite/sketch looks sloppy, but i'm really impressed with the background rocks! I wonder if using the original game sprites is illegal... hmm , it's for non-commercial use anyway...

Origo
01-31-2010, 08:44 AM
Thanks!

This kind of plot idea was in my head when I was going to sleep.
So this is just a part of the plot or an idea:
Benīs father, who is a famous politician and rich as well told Ben to come to Connerpolis(A new city created by me!) to meet him. Ben was never too near with his father, but he goes to Connerpolis.

When Ben gets there, they talk about everything drinking beer and whiskey.
Humphrey(Benīs father) tries little by little to get Ben to retire from The Polecats.

This part reveals a part of Benīs past life. Humphrey was a member of The Rottwheelers and he tried to raise Ben to be a Rottwheeler too,
but then a fight started between Ben and his father, 'cause Humphrey beat his wife, Rosalyn. Ben moved to Corville and he got Malcolm Corley as his friend. Malcolm gave a rusty old wrecked chopper to Ben and he tried to fix it,
but Ben didnīt have enough knowledge of fixing bikes.

Then Ben met Father Torque, a friend of Malcolm and the Leader of The Polecats. Father Torque helped Ben to fix his bike and they were good friends. Father Torque was like a father to Ben and Ben was like a son to Torque. He teached Ben to drive and how to be tough. When Ben was older he wanted to be a member of The Polecats and he became a VIP-member of The Polecats.

So the reason why Humphrey tries to get Ben to retire from The Polecats is that The Rottwheelers made a deal with Humphrey: Humphrey gets a load of money, if he can get Ben to retire.

Thatīs one of my ideas. It might be a little messy, but I think I wrote a pretty good chronicle.

Ideas for cutscenes:
Somebody who can model Ben in Blender (http://www.blender.org/), could use this (http://download.blender.org/documentation/oldsite/oldsite.blender3d.org/80_Blender%20tutorial%20Toon%20Shading.html)
technique to make cutscenes.

I donīt have a clue about the validity of using sprites from the original game, but there are many Fan-Games, which use the sprites from the original game.

Thatīs all this time.

Alek123
02-03-2010, 04:23 PM
This plot sounds good. The only thing i mind is Ben's father being rich. I would prefer a Todd-ish fat old guy. If he was rich , why look forward for the money from the Rottwheelers? I also thought Ben met Malcolm Corley the first time in the Kickstand. The town name sounds a bit cheesy. I would prefer Dust / Dirt Town , or Junktown.

IMO , Ben's father should be a poor old bastard living in a dump shack. Receiving the offer from the Rottwheelers , he wouldn't ressist putting his son out of the Business for money. If he was a politician , i'm quite sure he wouldn't. But it's your game , make it how you want. I'm supporting you , and i'm quite sure the other fans are too. Good Luck.

P.S. : Could you send me or post some of the fangame names ? I never thought that such games even exist!

Origo
02-03-2010, 04:47 PM
Sorry about that politician part. I didn´t think everything.
Did Malcolm and Ben really meet first time in Kickstand, 'cause Ben asks "So who do you ride with these days?" Or something like that.

Alek123
02-04-2010, 04:29 PM
Yes , he asked Malcom "Who do you ride with these days?" but he could have asked that even if he never met him in person before. It is quite a discussion , and it would be fair to make a poll , where fans could vote , if you went with that story. "Did Ben meet Malcolm for the first time in the Kickstand, were they friends before that?" I remember Ben's face wasn't so happy when Malcolm entered the Kickstand. I would believe that Ben didn't know that the old man was Malcolm Corley himself. Again , it is your game. I just said my opinion :)

I could help with the story , as i'm currently writing a fan-novel , not with Ben as the main protagonist though. We could merge the two worlds , my novel and your story , and create something special. :D

Origo
02-05-2010, 09:35 AM
Yeah, I think that´s a good idea to merge our stories. I read your story and it was pretty good.

That is what i said :P It's a shame payback was canceled. Hell on Wheels was crap but Payback looked much much better. Hell on Wheels really took the epic part out of Full Throttle.

02-08-2010, 03:28 PM

Origo
02-08-2010, 04:19 PM
Yeah, the Payback looked too good to be true, but when it was cancelled it made me feel angry too. And when they started with that game where stupid looking gorillas drive with bikes and they even named that game Full Throttle. That´s what makes me angry.

Anyway, let´s get back to the business. The game will be probably made in a higher resolution than the original FT(320x200), so the sprites must be remade, but the resolution gives a better looking game.
So, I can´t start working on the actual game before the largest part of the sprites are done.

Gos, are you a official team member now?

gos
02-09-2010, 01:57 AM

Alek123
02-09-2010, 09:52 AM
Right now we need two things. Backgrounds and Sprites. If we get these , creating the game won't be a problem. Can any of you guys rip backgrounds from FT? I think it is possible with ScummRev...
As for the resolution , i don't think we will be able to make good sprites/backgrounds in resolutions higher than 320x200...

Origo
02-09-2010, 09:59 AM
I have all the backgrounds and the sprites, but the sprites have black background and Ben´s boots are black too. That makes it boring to draw the line between the background and the boots on every sprite.

I don´t think we should use ripped backgrounds from the game, because when we draw new ones, they might not fit together. And anyway, I think that the happenings of the game will not be located in the Melonweed, Corville or anywhere near there, expect Kick-stand can be used. We should create couple of new cities and characters.

I agree with that , though my novel starts in Melonweed and includes a few old characters. That is in the beginning though. I think it's good enough to use it as the game story , but if you don't want to use it , it's fine with me. You're the boss. :D
Still , don't you think that not including Ben and a few original characters would kinda be wrong? It's a fan game after all... I mean , sure we will create new locations and characters , but we should keep the Full Throttle-feel.

Origo
02-09-2010, 10:33 AM
Ben will be in the game, of course, but I´m not sure about Maureen. Even if Maureen was in the game, she wouldn´t play a major role in the game.

Your story sounds good to me and I would like to use it, but I still want to be able to say my suggestions and opinions about it and change it if necessary. I won´t change anything if you´re against it, though.

Let´s talk about the storyline more with PM, if you want to.

How stupid do you think I am? Of course I know that Blender is a 3D tool. The idea was making a cartoon-looking cutscenes with a 3D models. If you checked out the link, you should know about the cartoon-thing...

We are able to use 3D cutscenes in the RPG too, but they need to be in AVI-format.

Update: I talked to Origo and it's quite clear that only two people can't do much game design. Progress is being made with my story , but i have no experience in creating games , and Origo can't do much even with his experience. The project is definitely not canceled , but on hold until i finish my novel and/or until we get more Full Throttle fans to help work on the game creation.
