Had this idea once. It would definitely work, but only for people interested in the universe as opposed to the visuals.

Some gameplay ideas:

-Disc combat based on multiple diceroll systems would work if you want to be like D&D, Warhammer, or Zork.
-Have players gain access to baton upgrades in order to gain more vehicles and tools.
-Take note of the faction descriptions on the official website. They were written for people wanting to make D&D-style RPGs based on the Tron Legacy universe.
-Lightcycle combat with ability-modified dicerolls to determine reflexes in turning corners, seeing enemies, doing Tron's "derezz lightcycle and jump over an enemy jetwall followed by re-rezzing the lightcycle" move, and so on.buy viagra onlinehttp://www.bilimselbilisim.com/haberler_detay.aspx?id=42 viagra online

Any text adventure is going to be confusing. Text adventure games are generally based heavily on 1980's roleplaying games like Dungeons and Dragons. I have very little experience with roleplaying games, but I've played them enough to get the general rules of them down.buy viagra onlinehttp://www.bilimselbilisim.com/haberler_detay.aspx?id=42 viagra online

okay then. So you know how to make one of these? I'm starting out, and I'm not.... good.

Even if you don't, You obviously know what your doing. and, HEY! we could make on of those text games, where your actions are determined by text, but they have a picture of the area and events on top. like one of the later Text games. and example of this would be:

I've never made a text adventure game, lol. Like I said, I know a little bit about RPG's but not too much.

If I were to make a Tron RPG, I would personally prefer a more visual experience, where the player has direct control over the main character, sort of like Fallout 3.buy viagra onlinehttp://www.bilimselbilisim.com/haberler_detay.aspx?id=42 viagra online

Download "Just BASIC" programming language, do a tutorial. You essentially just need alot of "if...then" commands- it'll be very time consuming. I was thinking of doing something similar, but it would be more of a Choose Your Own Adventure style thing rather than something like Zork. Either way, I'd play it. buy viagra onlinehttp://www.bilimselbilisim.com/haberler_detay.aspx?id=42 viagra online

Better idea than BASiC: use TADS.
http://www.tads.org/
It's the Text Adventure Development System, basically simplifies the process so that you don't have to learn programming from the ground up. It's a super simple scripting language and you can develop really quickly.

I used it back in the day, it's an excellent system. If you want an editor then I'd be more than happy to test and copy edit and give some thoughts, tech help, and feedback.

EDIT: Also, TADS lets you have visuals in it as well, so if you wanted to do something visual, then you could make a kind of hybrid game.buy viagra onlinehttp://www.bilimselbilisim.com/haberler_detay.aspx?id=42 viagra online

Hey, if you can find an editor to use, and you make it available, I'm all ears!

Sounds like a pretty rad idea.buy viagra onlinehttp://www.bilimselbilisim.com/haberler_detay.aspx?id=42 viagra online

"Your designation is Arun.exe." Your user, Riley, tells you. "You are a system monitor program. So, if you find something wrong in the system, then you take care of it, basically."
Before you can get familiar with your surroundings, you see another program digitize in front of you. "He looks different." You determine. This program has red circuts, but you have blue circuts. You wave hello to the program, but the program, instead of responding, pulls out his identity disc. This naturally comes as a shock to you, and you grab yours too.
"Not to worry, Arun. It's just a test. This is a virus I just coded. It's just to test you. If you die, I'll just back you up with a copy."
"Now that's a relief." You think. "Riley's got it all under control."
Just as you are about to fight the virus, you hear another voice, along with Riley's.
"Riley what are you... Is that a VIRUS you've programmed?!"
"No, sir, it's okay! It's just to-"
"a virus! Riley, I knew you were trouble!"
"No, sir! please! I was just-
"You're FIRED! Get out!"
You didn't know what "fired" meant, but you knew one thing: Riley was gone. So you lose this fight... Game over.



I'm learning a new software, and that's an intro I'm trying. What do ya think?buy viagra onlinehttp://www.bilimselbilisim.com/haberler_detay.aspx?id=42 viagra online

Sounds awesome! I haven't gotten started yet, because my computer just shot craps and I can't use this software on an iPad. I'm still trying to decide whether I want it to be about an original character, or about a main character. I might set it in a completely different universe.

I'm using Quest. Anyone heard of it? it's pretty easy to use, but a tad nonprofessional looking. Might try and transfer the code, or something, to another program. Just consider it the prototype.

As for LWSrock's game, I think you should make an original character, have it be in the same universe, but don't reference the other movies too much, if at all. just sayin'.buy viagra onlinehttp://www.bilimselbilisim.com/haberler_detay.aspx?id=42 viagra online

PRODUCTION UPDATE!

I bummed around and did nothing with the project. meh.

It's not that I am not interested anymore, it's just that I have no clue how to do this, and I looked for ways without, you know, code.

BUT NOW!
I will continue. And try to learn code.buy viagra onlinehttp://www.bilimselbilisim.com/haberler_detay.aspx?id=42 viagra online
