Hi! I always liked that 1990 game where you played a spy that tried to prevent criminal organizations from making crimes by decoding messages, tapping phone lines (electronic puzzle game), car chases and sneaking into houses to get clues and arrest suspects. I decided to make a windows version of it. Here is what is working so far: - Practise Crypto (takes a random message from a random plot) - Practise Electronic - Practise Specific Plot: For the moment, it only reads the plot file. Plots are in the "Plot" subfolder. You can create your own plots if you like. - There is a "Music" subfolder with many subfolders inside, one for each type of activity. When doing an activity, it will play a random mp3 file in the corresponding folder if there are any. - I started working on Practise Driving, but all you can do for now is search for the airport or the CIA office. The program requires Microsoft .NET Framework which is free at http://msdn.microsoft.com/netframework/. It probably requires DirectX also as I used a DirectX class to play the MP3 files. If anyone wants to help, I will need furniture graphics from an almost top-down view (as per the original game). I will also need top-down views of Max and of Bodyguards. That will be for combat practise. I expect I will also need suspect photos. It will probably be faces of about the size of a forum avatar. I have not decided on the details yet. Windows Covert Action (348K) download at http://forums.civfanatics.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=124564&d=1145819481 I would need a more fitting place to host that zip file. Any suggestions? Any comment appreciated. [Edited by - fbouthil on April 23, 2006 2:17:38 PM]
