RELEASE- The Knights of Alrukabi Teaser/Trailer


Fear is met and destroyed with courage.        James Bell


Introduction: The GTVA wages war on two fronts. Offensives into Sirius from Alpha Centuri and Deneb have been met by stiff resistance, until Special Operations Command devise a daring operation- With a 90% Chance of Failure, success would shatter the spine of NTF command in Sirius. Their Mission: Strike Alrukabi

Alrukabi: An alteration of Alrukaba, an alternate name for the Sirius System.

Team:
- eliex, FREDer and Tester (And from whom the trailer's inspiration comes from)
- Commander Zane, Tester
- BlackMan aka Dilmah G (The dude who FREDed the cutscene :P without committing a single felony)

Trailer is exactly that, created as an in-mission cutscene, accessible via the tech-room database.

The word 'Yo' is only ever to be used as a singular greeting.
It is considered an insult to destroy a perfectly acceptable greeting by misuse. A 'Yo-Yo' is a toy spun from the index finger by small children and enthusiasts,
any such use as a greeting will result in prompt reprimand by any member of the 'African-American' or 'Sri-Lankans-who-think-they're-black' community

Fury`: if General Krav Maga wouldn't be enough, beating up 16 teenagers is going to get me into jail :p /
BlackMan: Maybe if you turned into pedobear you'd be more of a threat

Impressive. This must be one of the first cutscenes with an actual dogfight in it :yes:

That honor goes to a little-known campaign (whose name I cannot remember) which had a cutscene opener for every mission. Sorry. :P

Not really. It wasn't actively bad, mind you...just boring.

Re: RELEASE- The Knights of Alrukabi Teaser/Trailer
hmmm the clip was really good. kinda vague, but cool. was the last few seconds, with that large ship warping in supposed to be slow motion? if it was, it looked cool. if not, then that computer has lag issues.

They do now :P They've been used in a few user-made campaigns as part of the NTF, Flames of War for example.

Re: RELEASE- The Knights of Alrukabi Teaser/Trailer
Yeah, it was eliex's idea :P I had to tweak it a bit to get it working right, it used to take about 25 seconds for the whole thing to unfold at first from the beat slow-mo hits, but as you can see we fine tuned it.

Re: RELEASE- The Knights of Alrukabi Teaser/Trailer
It was an excellent idea... it was a good teaser. When exactly is supposed to take place?

Thanks, well if you're referring to the events in the actual trailer well... the scouts get pwned obviously :P It'll all make sense when it's released :)

Hmm, the mission department is about half way through; the majority of the missions are complete but require final bugfixing.
There are some deliberations, and might take longer if the campaign is ever going to be VA'ed although it is unlikely.

TKOA's project head, Dilmah G is quite busy thoroughly testing WiH, but progress is steady.  :)

When it's done.  :)

That doesn't make much sense.
He didn't ask when will it be done.
He asked how far along is it - as in, what you got done :P
