So its all done, i have working achievements, that not only give the game a much better feel, and more to do, but also makes it a hell lot more fun!!
I have them 100% working, but they can only be used with my launcher, so it gives the launcher another use. Anyone having doubts about the launcher, you have the realise this is the only way i can do it, plus the launcher has other features, such as launching the game, installing add-ons and maps, and updating the game with new mod updates, and custom content that i think is awesome, that could be made by the community.
I can have as many achievements as i like, the more the better!
This first image shows the launcher under development. Everything works, and the main thing that needs finishing is the "n00b" friendlessness of the application to remove any chance of a fatal error.
After fixing these problems i shall go on to make the GUI better, and make different skins for the application that i hope a select few will create or even use to be real honest.
On the left is just things about updates, and the map list, the bottom is about add-ons (that work now as well) and on the right is the achievements list.
There are only 4 achievements at the moment:
Creep Off - Find a Creep, and KILL it!
Baron Of Evil - Find a poor, innocent child, and KILL it!
Balloon Artist - Find the water balloons.
GMAN!!!! - Find the zombie GMAN, and Banish him!
And the last two are just common ones:
Achievement Unlocked, or Achievement Image Missing.
This next image shows what will happen ingame after killing a creep for the first time:
**THE "ACHIEVEMENT UNLOCKED" IMAGE WILL ONLY SHOW IN WINDOW MODE BUT YOU WILL STILL GET ACHIEVEMENTS IN FULL SCREEN!**
And this last image is what is achieved when you close the game and return to the launcher or ALT+TAB out to check :)
Hope you enjoy it!! I haven't seen many mods with a launcher, or achievements or add-ons around so i hope you like this extra more :P
If you have some awesome achievements for me to create, then just leave a message with the name, the VERY short description, and a longer description just for me to understand were to place it or whatever. If you make an icon, then even better!
Thanks everyone, and please comment with anything you like :)
