Re: Swearing in tomb raider games

"I would say use your common sense. And also some consideration with what other people think/do or believe". Fancy words those. Reading between the lines you are infering that i don't have any common sense and i am inconsiderate of others. You say i should be careful not to offend anybody. Well you ...

Swearing in tomb raider games

I seem to remember reading somewhere that swearing and "coarse" language is not allowed in trle games. I was just wondering just where the line is drawn in reality. For example, i remember lara saying "damn!" in one of the bonus puzzle games that came with tr4 or maybe it is was tr5. Also say i want...

Re: Children and Tomb Raider

I will concede that playing games is about having fun and that the best test to see if a child can play a game is to let them try it out. However, when you say that the child "doesn't have to master and understand everything in the game", that is where you and i disagree. I mean, what is the point o...

Re: Children and Tomb Raider

I disagree with some of you who claim that there is no age problem with children playing tomb raider. Just to clarify, i don't think that tomb raider (or at least the 1st 5 TR games), are too violent or have adult themes. That might become an issue from Angel of Darkness and onwards but the early TR...

Re: Children and Tomb Raider

It seems that most people are in agreement that the early TR games can do kids no harm and that age 10 should be the minimum age for Tomb Raider. That puts my mind at rest so i think i will wait until she is 10 and start then. However, what Gerty said about Tomb Raider games designed especially for ...

Re: Copyright laws

Well guys if your intention was to scare the shit out of me, mission accomplished! I think i will forget about the Gandalf voice dubbing or dubbing in anything else from movies. However, i had also planned to dub in some audio of Lara's voice lifted from other TR games plus 4 songs. I think im prett...

I am in the middle of building a room which has a invisible barrier running through the middle of it. Basically it is a wall painted black with transparent and double-sided added to t...

How do you make light beams?

Does anyone know how to make light beams? I am trying to light a room by placing a series of sloped vertical shafts in the ceiling of a room. The idea is that the player can look up at the ceiling and see a distant patch of blue sky through a sloped (NOT VERTICAL) shaft. The shafts are not the probl...

Re: Creating invisible ledges

I took the pitch black texture from the texture list not the colour palette. It seems to create invisible ledges and not show sky as the colour palette does. As for the effect lights, i tried changing their intensity to get the ledges to show up under flares but couldn't get it to work. Then i thoug...

Re: Creating invisible ledges

Thank you Fluen for your suggestion to change the texture, it seems to have done the trick. I replaced my stone texture with a pitch black texture and then applied double-sided and transparent to my ledges and they became completely invisible. I didn't even have to apply any effects lightbulbs. In f...

Creating invisible ledges

Hi guys i need some technical advice on how to create invisible ledges. I went to the Skribblerz web site for help but their instructions are very vague. Invisible ledges are ledges that float in the air and are invisible unless you light a flare. You use them as bridges or stepping stones to cross ...

Re: Beginners Improved Tut1 project & level

Hi Sad Git, If you are looking for inspiration for making a beginner's level might i recommend my level "Curse of the Scarab". It is a debut beginner's level that is based on the trle tut1 tutorial. Basically, i built the tutorial and then added two more levels. I don't pretend that it is a masterpi...
