The only thing you have to do if you want to use anything from my mods is that you ask me for permission and tell me what your working on and also credit me, I'll probably let you but I just want to see where my work goes. Except the things that are in the third party folder, they are not mine and I cannot give them away.

14 comments by xPearse on Mar 13th, 2014

I recently burnt out while modding video games and am just tired of doing it, it became boring and very taxing on myself after years. I always came to walls most of the time I tried to do anything and I just gave up after trying to get the music working for HOTD warband, I did everything right and still it didn't work so I didn't even bother releasing it. I did though for the M&B version but not for warband because I didn't even have the game installed and sorry to say but at that stage I didn't give two shits.

I don't think I will ever mod again and I don't plan to, I just wanted to make this clear but for those interested I have moved onto something more constructive. I needed to occupy my time with something so I started researching how to translate Japanese video games into English. After getting help for more than I week I started to make progress and fully understand the process of the trade, I am a fan of Magic Knight Rayearth and want to play the games but sadly most of them weren't released outside of Japan so I am taking it upon myself to translate every single one of them. It is myself and Niiri on moddb who is translating the game, I asked him for help since I can't read Japanese, he does a rough translation into English which I 100% of the time rewrite but he is still crucial in the process.

I haven't gotten the response I wanted to on Romhacking but in due time I hope more people take notice and get interested. This is what I am moving onto from modding and I actually enjoy translating this game unlike what happened to myself at modding. I first wanted to translate Magic Knight Rayearth 2nd: The Missing Colors as I thought it was a game based on the second season of the anime but sadly it has it's own story separate from anything else so no Nova...... grrr. Anyhow so far I have roughly translated around 50-60% of the game so progress is going really well, I made a release of the first third of the game nearly a week ago so if your interested please check it out on my blog. I am also interested in what you guys think as just because I won't be modding doesn't mean I won't be hanging around Moddb so what do you think.
Here is also a video that I recorded not long ago showing off the English translation, all the mistakes in it have already been corrected so all is good.

You probably have your graphic settings too high, try lowering them and removing optional graphic setting such as shadows.

Hello again.
After some errors that I have fixed (Nothing to do with the mod) I have now tried the latest update. And its a really great mod.

But... I have some small questions.

1. Do you have any idea when the vehicles will come to the mod? And which kind of vehicles will be added?

2. Will there be added a way to scope with snipers or assault rifles with scope? (Could also be cool if you could lay down)

3. Since automatic wouldn't be available. It could be nice with some cool new sniper rifles.

4. This is perhaps a really stupid question, but why is Freddy Kruger in the game??

(Some ideas) (I know some of them don't appear in series)
Aviator glasses, baseball bat with nails, white tuxedo, bulletproof west, leather jacket with light blue trousers, Springfield M1A, H&K PSG-1 and some more single shot rifles.

Once again great mod. Looking forward for the next update.

Thanks im glad you had fun and like the mod. I won't be adding vehicle and I have said this times before, it would just ruin combat and be really messy. The Humvee is in the mod but that's only for a mount purposes and not in combat. I think there is a way to scope but I'll look into it, I could add some new guns in the future so why knows.

I don't really know why Freddy Kruger is in the mod, I just added him in for laughs.

Well just got done playing/testing the mod :3

I enjoyed it but the tournaments where very glitchy like when you'd get on your horse your head would be sticking up the ceiling(and through it) the lance is sooo slow(Might be my polearms skill but oh well).
The female faces where a bit "ewwh" (lol) There faces are really small and in the next update I hope you make them a tincy bit bigger.
I think it's not the graphics that lags the mod for people it's the audio in the background I well...decided to do a bit of cheating and hired some really OP guys and they killed like 5 people in a matter of seconds but the way the people are cussing in the background while being hit and then dieing makes it lag really bad...I mean I'm running this on the shittiest Intel card and the lowest settings possible and it shouldn't be lagging at all it's just the audio I believe....But other then that I hope you fix some of these suggestions in the next update/patch.
I don't know if this is a problem with anybody else but when I recruit Freddy Krueger my game crashes...

Some things that made me "lmao" was the way the some of the faction leaders could get prostitutes during a zombie apocalypse and the way some of the NPCS just keep walking into buildings lol...but other then that nice job on the mod! Really fun and good.

Yea I should find out how to make your own items appear in the tournament if you can, I'll check on the forum. Well the female faces are "different" than the native game, I didn't make the models and haven't made face models before so editing them would be a problem. It is the graphics and not the audio, the same amount of audio files play as compared to the native game except there they are grunts and thus not as noticeable.

I also have a very low end computer and it does lag in big battles, Freddy Krueger crashes when you recruit him. I have recruited him before and it didn't crash, I'll try again though when I test the mod out sooner or later.

Yea glad you found the ho's and comfort women funny, they were the native games ladies so I had to replace them with something and thus this was born. It's the games ai that makes the units run into walls so there's nothing I can do about that, wish I could though. Thanks for your feedback, im glad you liked it.

Hey as you know i'm a big fan of your work.
But once again I have some questions.
1. Will it be possible to get a Riot uniform? (Riot helm, thick bulletproof armor, soldier boots)
2. Sorry if I've already asked about this, but will it be possible to make the assault rifles automatic?
3. How much bigger will the map get? (With that I mean how many factions will there come, how many town etc.)
4. (Extra things) Will there come zombie dogs? Would there come zombie soldiers?

One of the things that are really incredible is that you take your time to answer us in here. That is something a lot of the other need to learn. It is an amazing mod and I hope you will continue with good work.

Why thank you, I really appreciate what you have said. I was thinking about adding a riot costume in way back last September when I was creating the police uniforms but I didn't know how to go about doing it so I just didn't create it.

I wasn't much good at texturing or modelling before but now I have gotten better, I even collected reference pics of a ton of Japanese police uniforms including the riot police. I could create one for a future release as im looking into modding Men of War Assault Squad at the moment.

Don't mean a year from now but perhaps between weeks - months from now. There were some problems with M&B as it can't properly display see through objects such as glass on riot helmets and shields, that's really bugged me with modding M&B.

I have asked how to make guns automatic but other modders gave me the code shoulder, 1866 western developers that was. There is OSP for warband but not regular M&B so we'll have to stick with single shot.

Don't know about adding any new factions or locations, haven't planned any as I have created all I wanted to so far. If you want to suggest anything then go ahead and I'll see what I can do.

Don't want any zombie dogs as they don't appear in the anime but I doubt they do in the manga either so sorry about that. Don't know about zombie soldiers, as far as I know none appear in the anime or manga. I want to stay along the anime so don't expect American Military soldiers but possibly Japanese SDF soldiers but at the moment I don't know.

I like it when people ask questions and such as that allows some form of communication between the modder and those who play the mod, some other modders are kinda arrogant but not all. Thank your for your questions as that's what kind of feedback I am looking for, thanks again and im glad you enjoyed playing the mod.
