Master of Monsters!!! Factions/Maps multiplayer era

Post by gr1ms » February 10th, 2019, 7:51 pm

Hello community!

This game has brought me a lot of joy over the years and I want to contribute back to this awesome community. Problem is, i've never coded anything before.
I plan on making a new era with a faction for each of the masters: Daimyou, Wizard, Sorceror, Darklord and Summoner. I will be making maps and ripping the music from my emulator as I own a hard copy of master of monsters for sega genesis still to this day. MoM got me into this genre of games at a young age and is still one of my favourites to this day. I couldn't think of a better way to contribute to the community than sharing a piece of my child hood with you all. Any help, tips or tricks etc. will be much appreciated! I'll be updating this forum once a week. Between work and hockey I plan on this taking a bit of time to finish but I'm committed to completion. :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Thanks,
Gr1ms

I do plan on reaching out to whatever body currently owns the rights to the franchise for permission to recreate the game...

Just to be clear though, this requires more than just their permission - any art/music/sound must under a GPL or Creative Commons license.
99 little bugs in the code, 99 little bugs
take one down, patch it around
