Graphics / Notification screen - aka "the fax"
« on: June 22, 2013, 03:43:58 PM »
It's been mentioned before, the fax screen needs a 21st century update!
So this threads will be to discuss new ideas for this image, and how it will display messages in the game.

Here are some things to think about:

   In TH, the fax machine was used to enter cheats, so perhaps the computers keyboard could be used to enter cheats in CorsixTH, clicking on a sequence of letters on the keyboard to activate the cheats?

   This new screen can be rendered in higher resolutions than 640x480, so will we still show screens windowed when the game is running at resolutions higher than 640x480, or will we now go back to fullscreen? I'll could render at 4K if the game will be played at resolutions this high in the future.

   Assuming the image is shown full screen, could tabs be used in the notification screen to switch between other messages? Sort-of like a tabbed internet browser. So if multiple items need attending to, the user can access them all without leaving the screen.

Here a mockup of my idea. Any changes/improvements/suggestions welcome!

Graphics / Level Advancement - Office Letter
« on: April 07, 2013, 06:39:36 PM »
I've started work on recreating the office letter movie from the original TH, and this is what I've created so far.
It's quite similar to the original TH in the way the letter is shown, but without a background yet. The original used what looks like a desk, with a large "casebook" on it.

I'd like to continue to improve it, with ideas from the community as to how much we could differ from the original.
Perhaps keeping the envelope and letter, and having different things on the desk?

Let me know what you think!
