  • New campaign

    We are trying to make a new campaign for AS and we have several maps and a campaign lobby done but we don't know how to make it all into a campaign.

    Specificaly we would like a way to get a new campaign in with out changing the the base AS code, and how to tie the maps together as a unit.

    BTW we are a team using one account so the faces go with different people. TNX for understanding.

    There will be some screen shots on the site once I get off my lazy bum.

    You could use the custom campaign mutator to tie the maps into a campaign just by editing an ini file. With some additional modifications you could also hook in a custom lobby screen. You could catch either smattbac or me in irc.starchat.net if you want help doing this.

          Thanks for the rapid response. But now I have another question, is there any way to add or edit characters?

            Not easily. It would be a big-time code hack, and likely quite difficult to do.

            EDIT: On second thought, I do remember seeing a character edited to have a different name/picture/appearance/etc. but I think it involved editing the base Swarm code, which you don't want to do.
            It's not my fault everything you like is terrible.

              I think Dalai has said a couple of times that if someone makes a proper campaign, he'll put it in the game. Or maybe it was about proper support for custom campaigns if someone actually makes one.

              Something along those lines.
              Ah, to be a hero. Keeping such company...

                Yup, I've read something like that too. The future of Alien Swarm looks bright.
                2 custom campaigns and official material in the making

                EDIT: I wanna see screenies now!

                    Proper support, I believe it was.

                      That was a long time ago though, the trouble now is how it will fit in with smattbac's custom campaign mutator.

                        Easy.. if it's already in the game, there's no need for a mutator

                          The web site is up.
                          the TR page
                          Complete with the much requested screenies.
                          Even though our maps aren't nearly as leet as some of the others going around.
