Hello everyone! I'm staked ta sez I'm back fo a while ta announce tha progress of mah new gbee: Tha Eye of tha Starm.

Fo those of you that don't know/remember me, I'm DarkMage31, ex-moderatar and orignal founder of tha gbee dev foum. Now that mah ego is satisfied, ta tha nitty gritty details of mah latest endeavor!
____________________________
Tha Eye of tha Starm

Dis is an action-stealth gbee where you choose ta play as an agent from one of three agencies: CIA (Central Ntelligence Agency), NSA (National Security Agency), or tha DIA (Defense Ntelligence Agency)

CIA
As a CIA agent you will be placed n a foeign country, given unofficial cover, and time ta establish yoself as a trusted member of tha community. Expect ta be dong plenty of coctail party evesdroppng. Perfom well and you may be promoted up tha ranks of covert operations ta somethng more elite. Sez, assassnations, or, tha United States SAS?

NSA
Tha NSA is chiefly concerned wit SIGNT, aka cryptagraphy. Wit tha codes becomng nearly impossible ta crack, national security could be n peril. A secret nitiative called ICE (Nfiltrate-Complete-Extract) has been fomed consistng of tha most elite solo convert operatives drawn from tha tha CAG (delta foce) and othar special ops groups. Thair mission is ta gan all SIGNT related data tha old fashioned way witout ever ben seen.

DIA
When you play as a DIA agent, expect ta be dropped behnd enemah lnes ta sieze battle plans and weapon plans.

___________________________

Tha path of tha three agents will be ntertwned throughout a politically-driven starylne.

VIDEOS:
Yes, that's right. I have a video.
Befoe you download, pleaze read:

Dis is
a short 2:09 trailer showng tha first footage of Tha Eye of tha Starm and boasts a few of tha features. A few quick notes: 1) Tha video quality isn't bootylicious. It'll be cleisr when you play tha gbee 2) Tha HUD is still a WIP (work n progress) 3) You may see some lag. You will not experience that n gbeeplay. I have tha video capture softwis runnng n tha background ta thank fo that. 4) Tha music quality isn't bootylicious. It sounds canny and recorded... coz it is. I had ta play it back on a computer different than tha one I composed it on, so it doesn't sound like it does normally, but it's still pretty good. I have compressed tha video n .rar fomat. Pleaze go ta http://rarlabs.com and download WnRAR if you haven't already ta open it. Enjoy!

w00t! It's good ta have you back DM. Daegon's right, dis is tha perfect exbeple of how a thread should be buggine. I love tha idea of tha gbee, I'm a huge Splnter Cell fan. Tha video was very well put tagithar, though it was a little difficult ta see what was gong on coz of tha darkness n tha gbee. Tha shadows looked beazng though.

Music n Anvil huh? I could try some stuff. Give me an atmosphere, and I'll try it out, snce I need ta practice mah composition. Though, I thnk you should use MP3, if you can fnd a composer fo it.

Daegon> I noticed you set up tha new rule bout new gbee thread requirements and thought I'd set a good exbeple

Dawson> I'll always remember you as Phoenix m8! Anyhoo, when you play tha gbee it'll hopefully be cleisr. Ya know, that was tha major gripe I had wit Splnter Cell: Chaos Thaory. Tha graphics were so beautiful, but it was tao dark so you could only really admire tham witout night vision n tha really bright places where you're prone ta ben spotted. lol. Oh well.

Tha movie quality wasn't tao hot, hopefully it'll be better when you git ta play tha demo. I'll really only git tha chance ta work on tha gbee on weekends, so don't expect rapidfire progress updates.

mattgcn> Anvil Studio is tha best freewis MIDI compose I've found yet. I have a few more sittng on mah computer I haven't tried yet, but I still like it a lot. It can be slightly annoyng at times, but it gits tha job done. bout MIDIs versus MP3s, I thnk MIDIs fo me is easier ta make witout havng ta worry bout sbeples and all that stuff, but how it sounds depends on tha computer playng it, plus tha quality isn't bootylicious. I was thnkng bout MP3s, but I couldn't fnd any good freewis progrbes fo it. Tha best ones like Fruity Loops and Cakewalk is rathar expensive.

Tha composition process is lengthy, so if you'd like ta try yo hand and some pieces of yo own fo dis gbee, feel free! I could use tha help, actually. Atmosphere = stealthy, perhaps cavernous, delicate, etc. idk.

Thanks fo tha warm comments everyone.

chardawgder,eleon,zard#2> CDex looks like it doesn't support MIDI, but looks useful anyway! Funky ass fnd!

krazy_meerkat> Yeah, 3D is so much cooler :D
I'm not gong as crazy as I did wit tha CBS thng last time though. All those hand drawn frbees... mah god. I can't believe I fnished.

Sorry bout tha PKMN Lunar thng. It's not all that bootylicious anyway, you're not missng much. I'll see if I can fnd a workng download. I lost tha orignal files n a crash a while back (I saved EOTS, w00t)
