This is a Mod / Total conversion project based on the very popular megaman X and rockman series games. It is being developed to play using the Q3 engine, but has been heavily modified to include many new, exciting features. There has been alot of planning and design originality implemented into the gameplay already. Things like: Fully Customized character models and animations, 5 playable characters, Over 40+ weapons and attacks, A functioing Upgrade system with a list of player modifications, Custom Music and sounds, new levels, menu system and more. By the time the project is finished we want to see finished things like: Custom Designed Saber System for melee fighters, New item entities, Special FX's like dynamic lighting and an interactive environment, New music tracks, A working Ride Armour system with a basket full of other awsome game modes to play online.
Alot of work has been focused into creating a similar gameplay system based on the original games and incorporating it into the Quake 3 3D subspace. It will be a very diverse and creative universe once all is finished.
X-Buster will be available free as an online multiplayer platform and will include some intresting gameplay modes to test, train and master your skills as your favorite Mega Man character. Its not just primarily about destorying your opponant, in X-Buster, you will have to learn to play with strategy and use the custom upgrade system to enchance your players abilities in Combat, Mouvement, and Player Essentials like Health, Energy, and Special Functions. Some upgrades are required if you want to reach certain areas of the level or to benifit you during combat, you decide which style suits you and devlop through the match.
There are 4 character classes in this game and the characters are grouped into them based on their fighting style and personal attributes. I really can't list all of their differences, but you will be happy to know that each class will include their own set of custom attacks/weapons. The Melee class will be setup with powerful melee attacks which can be combined for deadly combos. (sabers)
1 - Charge: Characters like Mega Man X who can charge energy and fire larger projectiles.
2 - Rapid : Characters like Forte, who can fire successive projectile blasts.
3 - Buster: Characters like Reg Mega Man who rely on a smaller version of the X-Buster.
4 - Melee: Characters like Zero, who fight with a light saber.
This is a very basic outline of the classes atm, but I can tell you..there is a nice variety of features for each and work is still being done to extend the possibilities we wish to see working.
Anyone who has played through any of the Mega Man games can expect to see some very interesting design concepts and functionality. The challenge of recreating these levels into the quake 3 structure map is definately what were hoping for in X-Buster. You will see areas in the map with special items, but unable to reach them because you do not have a certain upgrade, you will see areas that of high resource and wish to remain there to protect it and resupply.
X-Buster is actually an ongoing developemt project started somtime 6 years ago. Through those years we have had many things happen that almost canceled production and ended our game, but as fate would have it, we persisted and have all come along way. The X-B you see today from the ingame pics and current media was created by only a few very talented members, 5 to be exact, with the help from alot of people, for support, direction, advise and other relative things.
