We want to do something like this in 4.0.
for some reason this doesn't show up under the 'New' tab, bump?Malevol3nt supported this idea ·
Transferring control “live” will probably be untrivial. We’ll probably make taking over someone’s teams possible with the resume-from-replay feature ( http://feedback.worms2d.info/pages/general/suggestions/72462 ).
Update: this is planned for 4.0, along with being able to reconnect to the game and get back control over your surrendered team.
Not a bad idea. I guess cyber could incorporate this in the new scheme format maybe..? Maybe a switch for "teamgame" in the scheme. So when someone quits in your team you automatically get the controls for that team handed to you.
@ Maz: CPU AI could only play normal games, what about popular schemes like shopper? It just wouldn't work without rewriting a major part of AI.
I am changing my stance on this idea… when we switch to OpenGL/true color, adding some simple (optional) additional effects using OpenGL could be possible.
To author of post: You can do all of that yourself really. Just open the gfx.dir with sprite editor, export the img's and sprites and edit them. I've written a basic guide of it here: http://forum.team17.com/showpost.php?p=674798&postcount=110
I've allready done some edits on weapons, added new ones, aswell as replaced some GUI graphics. Make sure gfx.dir isnt bigger than 4Kbytes tho!
