    Resident Evil: The Evil Begins - Coders Needed

    Hey, Im the leader of Resident Evil: The Evil Begins and were looking for a coder. Someone who knows c++ and can work with the half-life 2 source. If anyone is interested pls email me at tomalajr@hotmail.com or visit the forums at http://reteb.hlgaming.com/forums

    here is the official story:

    After the dissaster with the T-Virus, the Umbrella Corp. decided to make a second virus known as the Q4-Virus. But tests shown that when the T-Virus and the Q4-Virus mixed, it caused dangerous mutations. Tempted with their evil minds the Umbrella Corp. decided to inject both the T-Virus and the Q4-Virus into a human host. The effect was beyond what the tests had shown and a new infection has been created. The infection took over Racoon City and then went for SkyLight City. The infection spread through the city within twelve hours leaving but a few survivors.

    The Evil Begins...


    Resident Evil: The Evil Begins is a modification for Half-Life 2. You can choose from different characters from SkyLight City. There is three modes so far that you can play, Cooperative, Hold Em Back or Survival Horror

    Cooperative: You join with your fellow survivors to escape from SkyLight City. You have to work together and beat each level.

    Hold Em Back: You are in a building/house and have to try to hold of the waves of zombies trying to attack you. If a zombie gets past a certian spot in the building/house then you lose. Then the next round starts and you have to beat the surviving time of the last round.

    Survival Horror: You start off as survivors, in a map that is meant for running around and finding shelter but you dont have to stick together (like everyman for himself). If you get killed by a zombie or die from infection then YOU turn into a zombie. The round ends when every survivor is dead.


    Each character will have his/her own advantages and disadvantages. For example:

    John Anderson
    +10 Speed
    +10 Streagth
    Can handle all weapons

    Some characters cannot handle all the weapons. Like Steven Miller can hold all the weapons but cannot handle them. So he could shoot but because of the kick back he wont always hit the zombie.

    Is this the very same project that was told to stop by many people because they were trampling over all sorts of copyright laws?

    Yeah, you should get written permission from whoever owns the Resident Evil name, and everything related to it before you go about this project (if you don't have it yet that is).

    There are tons of mods that use copyrighted names, I'd rather be sued/warned first before changing the name

    BUT those are paying homage to the original source material

    you have stated that you are intending to change there intellectual copyright so unless you are independantly wealthy i'd quit before that happens

    I don't get it. I thought you could make mods and stuff from all sorts of things, as long as you don't charge money for it.

    only if the copyright holder doesn't get a bug up there youknowwhat

    as an example Marvel Comics is again trying to sue game developers over games like Freedom Force and City Of Heros by saying it that these games are damaging to their intellectual properties

    But, that was a comercial game. (and obviously making profit from it) Yet, I dissagree with the suit because it was not the intention of the game developers from the start to infringe on the copyrights of anyone. They just gave the freedom to create "simular" superheroes within the game. I feel sorry for them.

    They shouldn't be sued at all. At the very MOST, be forced to remove the ability to create characters that are simular to those of you know whereever. lol....

    About creating a mod that is based upon someone elses copyrighted material.
    Proceed with caution... it becomes a lot more risky when the material your are basing off of is already a videogame.

    If all comes to worse you can stop the project and change the name/storyline/characters whatever and still release your mod later. As an ORIGINAL creation! Which I recomend in the first place.
    Life is the ultimate videogame. How do you play it?
