This is a Total Conversion mod that i'm working on using the MAX PAYNE 1 Gaming engine (MaxED). The mods based on the 1978 Cult Classic Zombie Horror movie DAWN OF THE DEAD, & i'm trying to stick as closely as can to the movie, & as closely as the MaxED will allow me. I'm also using the DIRECTORS CUT version of the movie as refferance. This mod will have the same story, weapons, characters, music, & green skinned Zombies as the original movie, & just like that movie you will have to shoot the Zombies in the head to kill them.

Good to see your still alive and kicking! Was afraid you had gone avol :P

Everything is looking top notch mate. Though i cant seem to remember a Canteen from the movie? or it might just be a long time since i saw Dawn of the dead last.

Im working on a TC for mp2 as we speak, so check it out It's called Kung Fu Evolution. Could use some inputs if you have any :)

Your right about a Canteen not being in the original movie, but what you have to understand is that making a game is different to making a movie. i.e. when you watch a movie all you are seeing is what you see through the camera lens, which is often 1 room, or part of a room, but when making a game you have to elaborate on this because the player not only has to be able to see & walk around the whole of the room, but also see any adjoining rooms which it would be nice to be able to also enter, as it would be a very strange game indeed if it was just filled with 1 roomed levels with no adjoining rooms, or 1 room filled with a load of locked doors that lead to no where.

Another point I would like to make is that when making a game that is so closely base on a movie, you still have to elaborate on the storyline now & then, i.e. have things happen that didn't happen in the movie, or perhaps cut unnecessary things out of the storyline. This is because, when you break a movie down, you'll find that most of the time 75% of it will be talking which if replicated in a game would make for a very tiresome game that is short on action.

So with this in mind you have to cut the talky bits out, but then after you have done this you can be left with a very short game indeed, so what you then have to do is fill it out a bit with things that are true to the situation but didn't actually happen in the movie, but as long as you return to the original storyline after these segments there should be no problem, & these added pieces of game play also give your players something fresh & unexpected to enjoy.

So with these 2 points in mind I can tell you that the confrontation with the River police at the start of this movie has been removed & doesn't happen in my game. This is because no action took place in that part of the movie, just talking.

However, the River Police station itself is still intact & there is a new segment to the game added here where you have to search the building for any survivors killing all Zombies that you may happen upon as you do so, & this canteen is part of this extended building.

I hope this rather long explination answers your question... ;-)
