Re: ZED Online - a fork of the Zod Engine

2. are there any difficulty settings? I only saw speed settings. Maybe i am rusty but the game feels really hard now as it became much faster... robots killing robots with grenades? now we are talking! that was fun. Not really so far. After the initial 35 single player maps the difficulty of the bo...

Re: Zed Online for Android

I have played Z on tablet (the terrible port that they released few years ago, you know what i mean) and it was terrible, almost unplayable. So not sure what to suggest, I am big fan of PC gaming (maybe too old school lol). I remember they changed interface there but selecting units was a pain, mov...

Zed Online for Android

Since there haven't been a lot of post in this forum I wanted to showcase what I did the last few days: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iYDbUwu9qhQ So far I ported only a few percent of the code. Anyone has any ideas what kind of controls would be good on a tablet? I am thinking of 2 fingers for zoo...

Re: ZED Online - a fork of the Zod Engine

But anyway, I also had some feedback to give. The UI scales very nicely when resolution is set to 800*600 and fullscreened but the controls on the side and the minimap do not scale with the units and the map. Could this be added so the unit portrait, minimap and all the buttons on the sides - basic...

Re: Zed online 0.2.2 crashes after 30 seconds

I guess there are some graphics that are not loaded completely.
Could you update to version 0.2.3, start the game, check that the "thumbnails" folder is completely created and the start a singleplayer match?
Are you running the Windows or Linux version?

Re: ZED Online - a fork of the Zod Engine

When you first download a language pack, only a few files are downloaded, and the game has no voices at all, neither Russian nor English. On the second attempt to upload, a little more files are uploaded, and the voices are already starting to appear. To download all 95 files, you need to click the...

Re: ZED Online - a fork of the Zod Engine

1. Downloading Russian fan-translation does not happen at once, but in pieces. That is, I have to run ZED Online Updater 5 times and click download language pack to make it fully loaded. Only a few audio files are downloaded at a time. I didn't test that yet. But I should point out that not all sou...

Re: I have a problem

I assume we are talking about ZED Online.
Did it happen in the Windows or in the Linux version?

Re: Special versions of Z DOS

As it turns out, the red logo edition is the US release. According to programmer Mike Montgomery, they "had to tone the game's difficulty down for the American market", possibly explaining the level changes. I have the feeling that this special version makes the game actually harder. Since there ar...

Re: ZED Online - a fork of the Zod Engine

The additional health bar could be for vehicles. One health bar for the driver and one for the vehicle. The icon looks like the cursor when entering a vehicle. The second image shows Sniper in a vehicle, but the bar is empty. I wish that was a thing in the game. It would help elaborate how the driv...

Re: ZED Online - a fork of the Zod Engine

super interesting!! Where did you find these pictures? I have no real idea what the letters A-L could be used for. Maybe the had the idea of grouping units together and giving them a letter. And letting the icon flash when the group was under attack or something. The additional health bar could be f...

Re: ZED Online - a fork of the Zod Engine

fort key maybe? Already done since v0.2.2 I think. Can be configured under options->hotkeys. Default is the home key. as for the previous post the most diffivult i thing is to determine whether the unit auto grab a flag or a grenade or a vehicle when in combat so maybe a force button (maybe double ...

Speaking about controls: For custom controls, did I forget anything or are these options OK?

Re: ZED Online - a fork of the Zod Engine

That's my aim, the make it closer to the original. Apart from units getting stuck. That happened a lot in the original. Still a lot of work to be done with units getting stuck on bridges and when entering repair facilities. It would already help to show to player the path the unit takes. In zod engi...
