Question

Hi Zanzibar, TPM is brilliant! I think that ApeTM should bring out Episodes 4, 5 and 6 in the overhead TPM style. What do you think?

I for one would love to...but LEC has other ideas

I'm the next-best-thing to obsessed over TPM, but I'm sure you've noticed that. I'd give anything to do a sequel to TPM with better graphics etc, but methinks LEC has decided to move on.

If LucasArts make a sequel to TPM (Same style and everything), the most logical thing to do would be to make a game based on the new book Rogue Planet. I haven't read it yet, so I don't actually know if it's any good, but it would be interesting to see the results.

Of course. As long as the L is attached to the EC, the fans aren't allowed to get what they want.

Oh, and I've read Rogue Planet. It's one of the very few Star Wars books I have read (mostly because Greg Bear is a reputable writer in the science fiction world). I don't think it would make much of a game though. The book itself was reasonably good, but it was mostly internal or conversational dialogue.

I think he did tell us how to do it somehwere on this board (at least someone did) and you can't really do it without a lot of software that none of us have. The reason Zanzibar's not giving the patches out is because he's not allowed to. Big Ape/LEC probably wouldn't give a #$%@ if one of us did, as long as it was only on a limited scale, but Zanzibar works for them. It's just not something worth risking your job over. He's already said he'd give them to us if he was allowed to.

I'll run it one more time past LEC to see if they want to release them. I think the problem is mainly the fact that the end-user agreement says something like "I will not modify the game in any way." Adding these files technically would modify the game, so it's a legal thing. Who knows.

Right now, the only goofball thing I have is a Mace Windu model that you can replace Qui-Gon or Obi-Wan with. It's not even that great; I only slapped him together in an afternoon.

There's a possibility that I can put together a Darth Maul playable character as well...but that would take a fair amount of time. I'm not even sure that his double-bladed sabre will translate well.

Regardless, I will check once more with LEC to see what the holdup would be. I've been pestering them about the TPM chat; now I'll add the model files to my requests

I DO NOT, repeat I DO NOT hold much hope that LEC will want to deal with it.

Good point - technically, yes, trainers are illegal. But trainers don't give access to licensed properties, like the Maul and Mace patches would, so LEC probably doesn't care about the trainers.

The chat? I dunno. I'll be there, perhaps one or two other Big Apers, and hopefully either our producer from LEC or someone from marketing down there.

The .BAF model files don't need to be installed. If you copy them into your root TPM directory, then rename them, the code automatically loads the root .BAF instead of the one in the Big.lab file. It's an old testing legacy thing that survived the final burn.
