The house thing was very cool. Less seizure inducing than Paul's weird flicker effect (cf Mayhem). I may just have to steal that.

I think the spider thing is one of the coolest enemies I've seen in Dink. It is fantastic!

And the little tree thing? Pure genius!

Thanks guys. Feel free to use any and all if it helps
Yes, the spider was in Bane 1.2, but I didn't think too many people would play it so I decided to fill out this little romp with it.
These ones just weren't right for Windemere.
Hm. As I learn more I'm thinking of redoing most of what I already gave to Merlin.

Man, even if Windemere turns out to be 10 lines of BASIC, all the new graphics will have made it worth the wait.

Any fool can use a computer. Many do. 
all the new graphics will have made it worth the wait

Even though I haven't seen any of them, I'm sure we (the D-Mod authors) can make some nice D-Mods with them

New graphics, scenery, drools (provided I'm not too busy)

I think the windemere engine will become totaly awesome, but it may need to evolve to its potential.
BTW, for those who like the translucent house, the trick is; (Ms paint)
open 'main-03'(graphics/inter/text box)select a big area, copy.
open the image you want translucent, invert colors.
Paste main-03,(image/draw opaque) center and set it. Invert colors again.
In windinkedit a normal house is stamped as background and translucent house is set at normal depth.

You have to walk behind the houses to notice the transparency.

By the way, kudos to Ric for the nifty trick.

Yeah the house is interesting. Loved the spider and the tree. Can't wait to see the rest of the windmere stuff is this is the trash can I'm looking at...

As for the mod... hmmm, mildly distracting, couple of bugs...

Alrighty saw the house..(thought it was a bug),
but tell me does the game have a real ending??
(credits rolling and so forth?) or do you just walk around talking? (neat save bots btw)

No big ending, just wandering around turning things into other things. Mabey if I have time I'll expand on it.

I wouldn't even count it as a proper d-mod. Just some nifty touches and cool new GFX stuck onto a few screens.

Just Ric showing off some of his (rather nice) ideas...

I too really enjoyed this D-Mod both with the new monster that looked great and the fun with Martridge.

Because it didn't need one. Ric obviously didn't release it as a "proper" d-mod, like Bane of the Magi. He was simply showing off some cool graphics, scripting ideas etc.

Actually, last month I saw there were so few releases it kinda messed up the DOTM so I fixed up my test mod.
I probably shouldn't have bothered, it seems others did the same and did it better.
Oh well, after a few minutes of amusment you guys can borrow from it or someone who needs a map to get started can use the whole thing.
