Beta Testing Phase 2

Well as some of you may know we've had our second phase of beta testing, from what we can predict with the following bugs is that we are almost complete, all we are awaiting now are your models (Multimedia people of course).

The programmers have minor fixes to work through for the next 2 weeks, and shall hopefully have a playable version ready for installation for you all if you wish to take a copy of this AMAZING GAME!

Well done everyone of such a successful semester and I hope these last few weeks don't get to hectic.

Title Screen

Here I give you a Title screen Ozy & I worked on for the game.


Slight Snag...

Twininator - Liam Davis

The copy i took corrupted (happened again damn it) so I’ve spent most of the night just re doing the rope and stuff, but at the same time removing unnecessary poly, edges etc and forming it all together for the skinning and texture.

Dummy Kohjuma King

Twininator - Liam Davis

Dummy version of the memorial, try and get it skinned and texture later tonight.

Ji-Gumo Model and Skull Screenshots

Some screenshot examples of the Ji-Gumo with the Skull, I will be doing this as part of the 3D animation assignment.

Ji-Gumo Skull Complete

Done and Done! 8D
The completed Ji-Gumo skull post, I do notice some splodgey bits of texture but so far I'm pleased with how the process is.
Right-o, just some idea of the actual texture of it, I made it look a lot more ancient and old then an ordinary ji-gumo skull and I made the tusks look all rotten-like for effect.

Update: Tried to blend the top part of the skull with texturing so it doesnt look out of place.

King Kohjuma update

Twininator - Liam Davis

Teeth almost done, just gotta smooth everything out then all i have to do is the arms.

Ji Gumo Skull Object Update 2

An update on the Ji-Gumo Skull. I have texutred the post and the sign, with the sign reading "Danger". It is wise to not be in the area if you see this sign as there are wild Ji-Gumo about. Will be texturing the skull soon.

Monday, November 8, 2010


Hey everyone.

This is a call out to anyone that's found a black Toshiba 4 gig flash drive. I'd lost it on Thursday last week and contains all of my project I've done thus far. If anyone's found it please leave a comment.

Finished yeti and animated

Basically Ozy reposition the arm and added more defition to it which makes it look a whole lot better than it was before.

Will start on notes for presentation over the next 2 weeks.

Wednesday, November 3, 2010

Here's the scene I set up in max ive just been working from the animatic so im not sure how right it is. I didnt have a modle of the shell tower so i used used planes so i could map out where anything goes. The camera needs fixing abit but it just at a rough stage at the moment.

Ji Gumo Skull Object Update

Quick update on my skull, I've done some more work on it, stuck it on a log post and will have the sign on it (the green tile) edited and such later as well as the skull. Will have some type of danger text or picture on it.

Kohjuma King Trophy Memorial

Twininator - Liam Davis

Here's my progress for this memorial, started to model the teeth.

Ji Gumo Skull Object

Skull of a Ji-Gumo that will be balanced on a stick. It will be a kind of warning sign that there are wild Ji-gumo about and other creatures. So be careful.
