Mwahahahahahaahahahahahahaaa!!!!

I just put some Force Comander music into a mysteries of the sith level and it sounds about 100000000000000000000 times better than the music they want you to listen to in the game! Only thing though, is if i include the music with the level pack...the download time will be longer....but i'd say it's worth it. I could include a level pack with the music, and one without it.

From what i've seen, people don't usually like levels with new music in them. They don't wanna spend two to three times longer dl just for the music.

so i'll include the same level, just different versions, one with the music, and one without it.

Oh, rhett, if you want, you could just extract the music off your force commander disk, and convert it to wav, that way you wouldn't need to dload it.

It's Imperial March Rage, sounds like remix though, i'm going to have a poll to see if people would be willing to download levels that are up to 10 megs. The music sounds so awesome in the level! It makes it more intense. I only got about 40 megs left on my website, so i think i'll only be able to include one level with the cool imperial rage. I could always just get a few more accounts on angelfire and upload the levels there and link the pages...

Bad music can ruin a good level, but good music won't help a bad one.

I have read all the hype about your level(s) (Don't ask me why), and am ready for you to put your money where your mouth is.

Question

You have not begun?

Then why? You hype it with 5,756,736,926,846 posts about it, then inform every one you have not started. You realize if this level sucks, your going to be flamed harder than anyone has ever been flamed before. And not by me either.

And worst of all, you and your buddies will have a reputation as being unable to delever. No one will ever download one of your levels again.

Don't think I am getting down on you to be a bastard. I just want you to know what will happen if the level is bad.

Don't get me wrong, your base ideas sound good. I am interested in trying it out, but it has been my experience that the more the hype, the worst the end result. (Remember the American try at GODZILLA?)

Y'know, when I saw this thread's title, my first thought was "Oh no! he's turning evil again!"

While I will admit right here and now that nobody likes to wait for downloads and many folks are still on slow modems or stuck with crappy connections because of their geographic location...

If you just want to post big downloads, many folks won't care. 40, 100 meg demos and trailers get downloaded and those things are abosolutely huge.

The advent of faster internet connections and of download managers like go!zilla and getright have made it far easier than it was in the past to download larger files.

Of course if it's a small level that is just big because of music, I can see some folks not considering it worth the effort.

Some of us have soundcards that let us listen to MP3's while playing a level, so it's not a big deal to us.

The other thing to consider is the looping effect.. eventually the music could become repetative. Of course if it's long and looped well, it wouldn't be as bad.

it was today, anyone want cake?

Oni, the reason the level hasn't really started yet is 'cause i really wanted to make it as close to the rogue squadron levels as possible, so i got ROGUE SQUADRON 3D!!!! Now i can take some pictures, deliver them to rhett, and he can make the 3dos, and get the canyon part of the level done perfectly.

On friday (or was it thursday) i figured out how to turn a bad guy into a good guy successfully without anything messing up and making the game look dumb.

I have decided to abort the music. I don't want to accidentally put anything illegal (if you'd call putting lucasarts music from a lucasarts game into a different lucasarts game illegal), and i realized i only have about 40 megs left to spare on my site, and i don't want the site to run as slow as jabba on a swoop, so i decided to keep downloads down to a minimum size.

I'm going to start putting quality pictures on my website from the game and the parts of the level that are in development, maybe like a "What this picture looks like in Rogue Squadron" and "What this picture looks like in Mysteries of the Sith" thing.

I also have the Rogue Squadron Player's guide (found it for $5 the other day), and that should help too.

Actually we have been from a certain point of view working on the level, 'cause we're working on making the 3dos, and i've been learning how to mess around with making new templates, and making new "enemies" which act differently than they do in the normal game...

When the level actually begins, everybody will know.

Maybe we should just curtail the postings about the level to one update a week.

Good idea Boba Rhett... Might I recommend not making a new topic but always posting in the same one? Make a topic called 'Garinda & Boba Rhett's Level Update' and keep posting anything there. We'll know when it up there you got something new on it!

May the Force be with you on your level making

You can do it your own way
Just as long as it's done just how I say...

I agree, one thread, one posting a week, and to prove that your level is worth something, post some screen shots.
