Renegade Squadron Mod (Updated 3-22-16)

Post by TWINKEYRUNAWAY »

This project is something I started 2 years ago and due to an unfortunate deletion most of my source files had been lost. Thankfully due to recent findings on an older flash drive this project is back on track with most of the weapons functioning nearly exactly as they did in the psp game. (And yes the properties in the psp are not carbon copies from BF2 as Rebellion handled weapons differently.) I always disliked the weird controls and limitations from the psp system either though I really did enjoy the game for what it was. Now with this project you will get to use 2 thumb-sticks and much more.

Credits as of now:
Tirpider for his excellent assistance in the creation and kit bashing of the rebel models.
Pandemic for their origin models
Unit 33 for the rebel trooper base skin
DEVISS
Icemember for storm commander model
Sereja for various weapon models
Nedarb7
-RC- Some edited backpack models

Are characters customizable or is there just several loadouts? Are you getting the PSP maps too? Either way, looks good! :wink:

Looks like you're off to an interesting start -- love the variety of Rebel troopers you're creating. The CIS and Rebels always seem to get less love in BF mods so it's cool to see a lot of focus there.

Oh man this looks promising, Renegade Squadron had so much potential but those Diet Dr. Pepper controls just held it back so much! I hope you do the idea behind it true justice :)

Will you also create the PSP-exclusive maps?

Excellent looking models you got so far Twinkey, looks like lots of work has been put into this mod already but I bet you will make this Renegade Squadron Mod awesome! My only question would be is the going to be an Era mod for all stock maps, only for certain ones or for a mod map?

For sure im going to make sure all stock maps will have it.
I would love to get some of the psp exclusive maps in there eventually. But first I want the gameplay and class set ups done first.

(By the way if anyone is interested I would love a mapper on board who is familiar with the game.)

Back in the day I theorized a rotation player model setup for classes. Basically you have an OnCharacterSpawn() function and inside it you have a counter. Each time a character spawns you use SetProperty() to change the player model and increment the counter. The next spawn should use the new player model, and so on. Here's some really terrible pseudocode to demonstrate:

Code: Select all

OnCharacterSpawn(
      --first ensure we don't have a nil/null value
      if currentCharacterModelNumber = nil then
            currentCharacterModelNumber = 1 --safety
      end

      --now use our model swap code!
      if currentCharacterModelNumber = 1 then
            SetProperty("all_inf_soldier", "GeometryName" "playermodel1") --our first model
            currentCharacterModelNumber += 1; --increment by 1
      elseif currentCharacterModelNumber = 2 then
            SetProperty("all_inf_soldier", "GeometryName" "playermodel2") --our second model
            currentCharacterModelNumber += 1; --increment by 1
      elseif currentCharacterModelNumber = 3 then
            SetProperty("all_inf_soldier", "GeometryName" "playermodel3") --our third model
            currentCharacterModelNumber += 1; --increment by 1
      elseif currentCharacterModelNumber = 4 then
            SetProperty("all_inf_soldier", "GeometryName" "playermodel4") --our fourth model
            currentCharacterModelNumber = 1; --reset to 1
      else
            --This should never happen, but just in case, reset to 1
            currentCharacterModelNumber = 1
      end
)
Now obviously that's not proper lua coding, but you get the idea.

I just realized you've stated you have all guns working, ... even the carbon freezing gun that can freeze enemies? That would be sweet! :P

Well I can emulate almost the same effect. A chargeable weapon that fires a tracer with invisible geometry with a light blue laser trial. Firing the weapon weapon will feel the same but the effect of freezing cannot be emulated. All animation sets would practically need a new animation bank for freezing which is something out of my hands and knowledge. But I had an idea that instead of the projectile freezing the target, it instead acts like a carbon freezing dart where it inflicts blue/grey ion mist on the target and essentially acts as a poison. The higher you charge and release the projectile, the more initial damage the shot does while the poison damage remains the same.

@Teancum, That sounds like a great suggestion.

Nah dude, wrong. You can handle it a couple of ways. You can used chained knockdown (push/pull) effects if you want to use just weapon .odfs, or if you want to be cleaner but use scripting, you can make a weapon that, when it hits a target, disables their physics for a small amount of time.

Kinda like how darth vader handles force grip in dark times? I totally feel you on the push/pull odfs and I actually almost got that working for this weapon but it looks a little wierd like the affected unit is doing the dugy with his body being thrusted back and fourth in place. The lua suggestion sounds like a much better option. Ill go ahead and experiment with that and see what happens.

Happy to report the cluster grenades are almost done and im currently working on the orbital strike rifle.(though im debating if I should just give it to units in outdoor maps.)

If we could only port some of the excellent maps from Renegade Squadron.

I don't believe you can. A lot of things can be ported but I don't think RS models are on that list. Maps is even harder.

The process is SUPER long, but possible. You have to do a full 3D capture of the map with an emulator and a 3D screenshot program, put that all into a modeling program, do a ton of scaling, import to ZeroEdit and then do a lot of object breakup so you can keep the FPS up high.

Very possible, but also a very long process, which is why it hasn't been done so far.

I am extremely familiar with renegade squadrons maps and there layouts as it is in my top 3 favourite battlefronts, I am attempting to remake maps from the PSP battlefront titles however, I am no good at modelling so I am extremely limited on what I'm capable of.
In short: Yes, I may be able to make map remakes. However I will require custom assets for: Korriban, Sullust, Salecami, Space Platforms (CW Coruscant and GCW Kashyyyk), Maybe Endor? Bar these maps I can make maps that highly resemble the ones from Renegade Squadron. (Tatooine, Boz Pity, Ord Mantel, the rest are ports of SWBF2 stock maps but smaller.) :thumbs:

I am current looking into the PSP level formats to convert things more easily. As Teancum said it is difficult to do as this will be my first time breaking into the .PSP files and diguring things out. So far everything is either in an unfamiliar format or unopenable.

I believe you can extract the .PSP files with this QuickBMS script: http://aluigi.altervista.org/bms/asura.bms

Indeed, and that is what I did but the internal formats need figuring out.
