Ghostbusters: Trick or Terror!
« on: November 02, 2011, 10:38:28 PM »
Howdy folks, and a happy belated Halloween!  I was struck with the desire to throw together a quick, one-shot Ghostbusters mod for Halloween, and it took me just a bit longer than I had thought it would.  Still, it's done now, and I hope y'all will enjoy Ghostbusters: Trick or Terror!

Follow our four intrepid heroes as they try to save New York from a Halloween gone terribly wrong!









Happy Halloween guys, and welcome to Ghostbusters: Trick or Terror II!

I'm just BARELY getting this one in under the wire, but I am proud to release the second episode in the Halloween adventures of everyone's favorite spirit chasers, the Ghostbusters!  Join them for another mysterious case as they are called to a foreboding locale and face strange events that just might be connected to their previous Halloween misadventure.

As before, this is a simple, one mission story, but I had a blast making it, and I hope you will have a good time with it as well.  So come on, celebrate Halloween in style, with the kings of creep, the Ghostbusters!

This release includes the original mod as well as the new mission and foes.  You can download the whole thing here:

Good show, Benton. Thanks for continuously providing to the community. Hrm, I think you're trying overtake my mod count now. Calm down.

I'll go ahead and add this to the mod list and make a blog post about it on FRP2.

Thanks guys!  Ha, Prev., I'm pretty sure I'm getting close to overtaking it.  I've just got to get these mods sitting on my hard drive packed up and released. ;)  What's your total?  It's definitely going to happen...one of these days. :D

Um, 15-16? That's not including some of the other mods out there that I did a little coding help on. :D

It was loads of fun, B.  It was great seeing some of my monster Skopes/skins in the game (I wish I had gotten to the Wolfman).  Great work!

One issue though...The talking heads/portraits for the monsters don't seem to show up (when they speak...They're just pink).

Thanks guys!  That really means a lot!  I was pretty happy with how the dialog came out, and it is really awesome to hear that it 'rang true' to y'all.  The Ghostbusters are such a great group of characters.  They play off of each other ridiculously well, and their dialog just about writes itself.  I'm really glad that y'all enjoyed it!

Dana, your movie monsters are a big part of what gave me the idea, my friend!  I'm not quite sure what caused the pink portrait issue...hmm...I must have screwed something up when I was sizing and converting their pictures.  I got images from the classic movies, and I definitely want those to show up properly.  I'll try to give that a look tonight and post a small fix.

Okay, I'm not sure how I screwed up the portraits for the movie monsters.  From what I can tell they should work fine, but they don't.  I'm guessing it's got something to do with the way GIMP is saving the .DDS files.  Would anybody be willing to snip out some portraits for me?

I use PaintDotNet, and I found a (.DDS) plug-in for it. So far, I have had no issues saving to (.DDS), if you send me your (.TGA) files, I'll convert them for you.

Awesome, thanks CB.  I'll have to look into that.  I've used GIMP for this before without incident.  I'm not sure what the issue is.

Okey doke, thanks to a little help from CB, the portraits are all fixed now.  You can get the small patch here:

And I've updated the link in the first post to point to an updated version of the mod.

Also, I've been thinking about the mod count, Prev.  The DCUG should totally count for more than one.  It has four campaigns and change! :D

It's sounds similar (if not the same) issue I had with my DDS converter (if you recall, BG...I think I told you about it).  It was working fine for years then suddenly every TGA I converted to DDS was pink.

Howdy guys, someone recently asked me if I was going to do a Halloween mod this year, and it occurred to me that I could revisit my Ghostbusters mod.  Would there be any interest in another one-shot Ghostbusters Halloween mod?  I'd probably just do it as a second mission in the same setting and campaign.  Is anybody interested in that?

Take this with a grain of salt because I haven't played FF or mods in a long time but if I ever sat down and played, a Ghostbusters mod would be high on my list to play. So I would be in favor of another level/one shot.

How about a crossover between the Ghostbusters' universe and the Marvel Zombies' unverse?

I'd be more interested in seeing a crossover between Ghostbusters and Zombieland (who didn't want to see Bill Murray use that proton pack on a bunch of zombies once he was running around in the old costume?).. but I can't wait to see what BG comes up with.
