Since AReyeP and MCS have developed Spear:End of Destiny, I was wonderin' whether or not it's possible to create radio-communication messages which could be seen or heard during levels. I call tell y'all about it, this would boost the reality feeling a LOT.

The first method would be to create a lot of invisible pickup objects - such as the secret triggers - but instead of writing "You have found a secret", each invisible pickup object would display different radio messages, such as "HQ calling BJ! HQ calling BJ! Nazi aircrafts are headed your way! Expect massive enemy reinforcements! Out." The downside of this method is that you cannot alter these messages after you've compiled the game.

The second method would be harder to create, but more "flexible". When you pick up the invisible trigger, a WAV file would be played with the designed radio message. 10 seconds might be a little too few, but it would be possible to alter the radio messages via WDC, and create new ones. The downside is the time limit, and the fact that firing a gun or opening a door would cut the message immediately.

Actually, if you use the Hint Bubbles code that Merthsoft helped me design, all content can be edited through separate text files with the extension WL6. The content of each bubble is chosen by Level, then by floor code. I've posted the WolfDX code for the public to download, so feel free to use it for your new feature.

Additionally, you might use AlumiuN's Advanced Sound Manager to run longer playbacks of WAV files.

For lack of a more original closing line, I hope that helps. Smile

You mean...it is possible to somehow edit the in-game messages in End of Destiny WITHOUT taking the EXE file apart? Care to tell me how? :$

I don't know about that, as I haven't really messed with that mod's game files much. I know more about expanding the Wolf3D engine in general. Matter of fact, that time I even looked over the game's files was several years ago. Neutral
