Dear Community,

I would like to present you my first notable project.
It's the character from Vanilla JA2 - Carmen, or the guy with terrorist heads quest. I am making some little modifications to my copy of v1.13 and want to share my work with you - just like the most of you do.
I mostly used/cut original files, so I can't say it's totally my work. But it took quite some time, you know.

I would like to hear some feedback. Please, don't be afraid to criticize.

Enjoy in peace,

Sucho

Download link - using slot no. 190

P.S. I used our local file sharing site, hope won't be a problem. You can change the language to English in upper right corner by clicking on tiny flag.

EDIT:
Added links to files associated with other slots.
Added few lines to the description.
EDIT2:
Added patch file link and info.
EDIT3:
Deleted links to the old archives and patchfile. Uploaded new one, patchfile included.
EDIT4(Hopefuly the last one):
Updated his Speech files and reworked few quotes. Updated 'Thanks' part of readMe file.

Hello Sucho and welcome to the forum, :shake:

you did a good editing job! Personally I would prefer Carmen as a PCM character than as member of A.I.M. or MERC. Also you would avoid that Carmen appears twice in game which is quite unrealistic.

This is from a short test I made:

Well, it works. That means you can recruit him, but the terrorists quest is over with that choice of course.

I know it's very difficult to create own faces (I have to ask other more talented members here myself for that!), but Carmen's 48x43 face is looking a bit small compared with the other characters and his eyes animation looks a bit weird as well.

Concerning your speech files I think _021, _043 and especially _026 could need an improvement and maybe you can cut/put together some additional speech files for some missing situations/contexts yet.

In short I like your idea to play with Carmen and I think it has potential! Smile


Best regards; Schein

Hi Schein!

The original idea was something like: "There are so many cool characters in Arulco. What a shame I can't hire them."

Yes, I am aware about that 2 Carmens on map thing, but I meant this guy for other mods, like UB v1.13 for example.

Well, you are right, these quotes are just bad. And especially _021 is kinda creepy. Cutting quotes of originally not hireable character is pretty much limited by his dialogues in quests. I assume that Carmen is one of the richest in talking, but I still have to improvise few of them - like catching breath and losing consciousness (what a hard-core word Surprised ).

I'll see what I can do about his portrait.

Thanks for your time,

Sucho

Hi Sucho,

Sucho

Exactly! Smile And that's the reason why I'm a big fan of the Playable Characters concept originally Scorpion initiated:

Or as part of the PCM crew eventually? Wink


I'm looking forward to your next version of Carmen and I wish you much success and fun modding our favourite game!

Hi Sucho,

you really did an excellent job concerning Carmen's new face! :thumbsup:

I made a quick test with Carmen as PCM character and everything looks fine now compared with the others!

If you prefer Carmen as A.I.M. member maybe you consider adding a "telephone effect" to his laptop files like this example:

Think it would be nice if you could hire Carmen as a reward when you give him at least one of the mercenary heads... That you kind of impressed him. This way he still kinda keeps his purpose.
Would there be some easy way to make this happen?

I like your idea Thor, I was thinking of it myself, but really don't know how to make this happen.

Looks to me it needs some coding... The same kind as recruiting the rebels, but I can't do it either.

Not every cool new feature needs a coder these days. The PCM is a good example for that and the room for further improvements in this regard is great.

Well, I downloaded PCM, checked it out, but I don't see the way to get the thing done.

Hello Sucho,

I will add Carmen to the list of available PCM characters.

Thank you for your time and effort you needed to cut his speech files and to create his face! Of course you will get credit for your fine work!


Best regards; Schein
