dunno about the sword, might be too detailed. Are the polies triangulated?
Nope, is it necessary?

well...no, I hear the newest BRFedit can take any shape of a polygon. But 390 nontriangulated polies is too much.

Everything for .808 had to be triangulated.  Unless there's already a BRFEdit version out for .890 that I haven't heard about (which I seriously doubt), I think they have to be triangulated.

Got into this with the new swords for ONR ... even the empty spaces had to be triangulated, or it would screw up big-time.

Jobs updated.

We could use someone to redo the troop tree diagrams and a modeller/texturer for the LOD stuff after the port.   Most of it will simply involve making some low-res texture maps on existing low-detail vanilla items. Shouldnt be too tricky for even a low-skill modeller/texturer

AW: maybe you could update the warcries with these:

For the dwarves, we can add a warcry based on this:

 gimli:   Ishkhaqwi ai durugnul.

  gimli:    'I spit upon your grave'

 

ishkhaqwi 'I spit'.

ai  prep. 'upon', reduced form of aya (WR:20)

durugnul 'your grave'

and this may also be used as a warcry or a texture for some dwarven weapons and armor:



Tarâg-udrig

Rakhâs-udrig

 

'Troll-bane

Orc-bane'

Mernak Mabazgân!
Remember the dead!

Gurd!
Have fear!

also a possible rohirrim:

Lac is drefed!

A battle is stirred up!

(if anyone knows old english, we can come up with more..)

edit:

possible orc/black speech:

  Za dashu snaku Zigur!
 Hail Sauron!
-  Nubin sherkuk!
  I smell your blood!

and sindarin:

Herio!
Charge!

Also if we ever get commands in elvish,
Hold!  is
Dartho!

Or "Hold position"
Tangado haid!

ok, added some to the main page. But the elves already say tangado haid when you give orders. There are a bunch of elven commands for a male player character.

edit: ok, I didn't know, I don't play the elves ;)

While we are scouting for voice talents, why not throw in the "greetings" speeches that were suggested before
(here is the link to my old suggestion, but it was suggested before that as well - only I can't track it).

Of course they would have to be written down exactly, before they can be included in the list.

Allright, I think I could clean it or make a new one...how many non-trig. polies should be good?
EDIT:
Made a new one, still 276 polygons non-triangulated...maybe I shall leave it for someone else.  :lol:

BTW, this is a noob modeling question... do all the faces have to have exactly 4 vertexes, or not?

I dont know much about modelling so I cant say the difference between poly types. How many polys does brfedit say it is? Check out misc_dwarf_sword.brf file and the dwarf swords octoburn did there run from 180-300 polys or so. AW

Allright tried to play around and the lowest I could get to was 350 triangulated.  :-\
My sword at the top, I think the other one is Octoburns:

I just tought that if I remove the bump's on the handle, and faked them with texturing, I could get the poly count lot lower...I'll do that now...
EDIT: Umm...doesn't look like the sword it was meant to be anymore.

bumps on the handle are best done with textures. You cant see the handle anyway in battle as its covered up by the hand thats holding it.

Hmm...Didn't turn out good, maybe I'll start off with something easier...

I have a mic and I could conceivably help record some sounds, but I'll need someone to help me with the pronunciation of the elven and dwarvish stuff.

No offense Merlkir, but those weren't terribly helpful for the pronunciation.  I'll give it a go anyway.  I'll just pronounce them as phonetically as possible.  I am a Southern American White male though, so I apologize if my recordings aren't useful.  Just figured I'd give it a go since no one else was doing it.

EDIT: I've recorded a few little things, does anyone have the time to perhaps let me know if I'm pronouncing them right?

there are some mentions of pronounciations of certain stuff, I think that's the best we or anyone else know.

you're just responding to my posts, and if my voice is crap and I can't pronounce them, I'd rather not do a million of these things for no net gain, savy?
