I've been experimenting with making games for several years now and I'm the founder of Apok Studios. Umm... not much more to say, really.

I'm not sure what I can see that's different, but it's good news about the release date! Loving the Multiplayer Beta! :D

Ooo! I thought I recognised the graphics!
Just out of curiosity, did you make the maps using RPG Maker XP or your own engine?
Good luck with Aero Empires. It looks like it's going to be amazing!

CountVlad Oct 24 2009, 5:43pm replied:

I think RPG Maker XP is pretty good for the price. If you know what you're doing, you can adapt the engine for almost anything as long as it's not 3D... although someone did manage to make a script for it that made it look a bit like the original Doom.

I love this game! It's a bit like Superpower 2... but it actually works properly and is fun to play... and is set from 1936 to 1964.

CountVlad Jun 9 2008, 12:36pm says:

I'm not gonna condemn this game, but I did think that the length and quality of the game didn't justify the size of the download.

One thing in it's favour, though, is that I now know about the FPS Creator Engine.

Go to www.apokstudios.net, go to the games section and then click on Novostrana (should be the first game) and there is a link to the RTP there.

No. It's a single player game.

BTW, new demo being released soon.

I'm using a tileset from RMXP.org, which puts all the stock tilesets together into one massive tileset along with some useful additions to the stock ones. If you give me a PM maybe we can't talk about trading stuff?

Strange you should mention that. One of my first projects with RMXP was a pokemon themed game.

Woah! Sorry for the late reply! I don't regularly check my profile page. Well, I don't really mod much. I've dabbled with Kudos 1, Kudos 2, Kudos Rock Legend, TES3 and TES4.
Most of my knowledge is in RPG Maker 2003 and XP.

Great idea! I'm looking forward to it!
As well as weapon realism, it would be good if you could lower the health of NPCs. At the moment I'm finding I'm sometimes having to empty almost an entire clip into them (each) before they'll die.

CountVlad Aug 13 2008, 10:22am says:

It might help if you explain exactly what this mod is and give a little more detail about it in the description.
"Classic Cry aims to emulate Classic gameplay in a modern engine." doesn't really explain much about what this mod is about. It could be a description of half a dozen mods.
I'm not trying to slag you off, it just might help to encourage interest in the mod and downloads if people actually know what they are downloading.

CountVlad Jul 30 2008, 10:45am replied:

It may depend on whether Wolf3D is considered Abandonware yet (i.e. the developer/publisher is no-longer selling distributing or supporting the game).
Abandonware and it's assets are considered to be public domain, whereas if the game is not Abandonware yet, you'll probably need to get permission before using any of the assets.

Wow! That had me hooked from start to finish! I think that is a master-class in 3D animation and direction/editing.
The voice acting was brilliant too!

CountVlad Jul 14 2008, 4:45am replied:

He's talking about how he didn't think it was fun.
Well, I know what he means to a certain extent. It was originally meant to be a concept demonstrator (i.e. how RPG Maker XP didn't just have to be limited to 2D 'Zelda Style' RPGs) and it only took me a week to make (working on my own) from end to end.
...although I do think he's being a little melodramatic about his hands falling off. lol.

There are two versions of FPSC. One is the standard version and the other one only works on Windows Vista with a DirectX10 graphics card. If you don't have Vista or a good graphics card, it might be you downloaded games made with the more advanced version.

BEST... GAME... EVER... lol.
This is the kind of game that The Elder Scrolls series should have been.
This is now my new favourite game.
Ok, so the graphics aren't quite as good as most modern games, but it more than makes up for it in the amount of different stuff you can do.
Can't wait for the finished version! :)

Technically, according to Wikipedia, the Eurofighter Typhoon is Generation 4.5 along with the Dassault Rafale, F/A-18 Super Hornet and MiG-35.
The F-22 is Generation 5.

It is, but as far as I'm aware it's not been put on the site yet. I don't want to add it myself because I don't know enough about adding an engine.
Also, I've modified the way the engine works quite a bit.

Damn! Forgot to put blocking on the inside graphics. Also the people aren't supposed to be standing on tables, etc.
Looks like I also forgot to put an exit point in that inn as well, sorry about that. Still, that area isn't important for anything yet. All four quests have been tested and can be completed without the player getting stuck.
