Since Mordor XP seems all but dead, and I cannot get a hold of Braindead or any other member of the MXP team aside from aardless, I have decided to start doing this remake by myself.

Im currently using Mordor 2 artwork as a place holder, and taking the UI design elements from it, along side some of the MXP design elements from screenshots, and since Im just a coder I dont do artwork, or design GUI's very well.

Its not very functional, aside from just displaying the UI and a few dialog options like, about/credits, the town and the general store. My current plan is to get the entire UI up and running, then proceed to work on the gameplay elements. Work will be slow, but steady, since I can only realistically work on it after work and on the weekends. But progress will be reasonably fast, since Im using Python with wxPython and wxFormbuilder to help build the UI faster and easier. Using Python and wxPython, makes this cross platform, although I havent tested it on anything other than Windows 8.1 64 bit. Essentially, any OS that can run Python 2.7 should be able to run this without problems.

For final release, I will most likely compile the windows version down to a binary, negating the need to download the Python interpreter to run this on Windows. If execution speed ever becomes a problem, I will most likely spend some time porting it to C++, but in doing so, I may end up breaking cross platform compatibility for a while.

I will release an early Alpha/Beta version as soon this is playable, bugs and all (which will be fixed, of course).

In the mean time, if anyone would like to contribute artwork, descriptions, gameplay design ideas, map design, or anything else, please feel free to post them here, or PM me. I plan on taking design elements from Mordor, Mordor 2 and Demise, and Id like to have a very large dungeon (45 to 50 levels), plenty of hard, end game content.

Feel free to ask any questions and Ill answer them to the best of my ability.

To the mods: If this is the wrong place to put, this I apologize and please, feel free to move it to a more appropriate place.

Screenies:






Ill post more updates when I have it.

UPDATE:

I finally got a hold of Braindead last night and have been added to the team. So, needless to say, I will be discontinuing this, and begin working on the official version.

Just... just..

I want something. Boohoo.

I've been toying with Unity now in the attempts to program a version just for myself even.

Virtual running Windows 3.1 so I can play Mordor 1 is getting tedious. (but I do it anyway due to love.)

I can't say much other than that I am working hard to get something of quality released as soon as I possibly can.

Good to see some fresh blood formally accepted.

How well organized is the code base? Is it pretty clear what specifically needs doing or is it in more of a here's-what-we've-got, here's-how-we-want-things-to-be orientation? I've thought about volunteering once or twice, but only if I could contribute specific patches as opposed to large scale organizational work.

Nice to see you again, Nudi!

Personally, I prefer any type of news over total silence. That's why I've been posting so much lately; I'm trying to stir some activity up!

Hey guys! Sorry about the admittedly excessive leavee of absence, I had a lot of personal life problems that I have finally taken care of.

I am currently working on mxp, although I can only dedicate a few hours a day at the most because of my work schedule. I'm currently using python, so those few hours can provide a lot of tangible progress. I'll try to keep my personal updates in this thread since I don't speak for the whole team.

Also, for people wondering about giving the source code, it's impossible. There is a deal with decklin preventing us from doing so, don't know if I can elaborate any further.

Sorry for getting hopes up earlier, but hopefully I can redeem myself.

Feel free to ask Amy questions and I'll answer I'd I can.

We are used to waiting by now, so I have one question and one question only. Will we get to play Mordor XP some day?

Short answer: yes.

Long answer: it's going to be at least a little while. A lot of work to do, there will be bugs to smash, but yes.

Excellent! Incidentally, I have the sudden urge to play some Mordor. It probably has something to do with the fact that I have been posting on this forum lately... Welp, time to find myself some kind of emulator/virtual machine/whatever!

Are you working alone at the project as things stand Qortaak? I've only just become aware of Mordor XP and find the prospect of a Mordor inspired game made by fans for fans amazing :-)

I'm all about C# and Java, but I would like to lend a hand if it will speed things up.
