TOTAN 2.0 project rewrite in Python
Project name: Twilight Melody
I’ve made this project on 3 displays:
- good old dot matrix
- LCD screen (no more Audio/video WPC board is needed)
- RGB Led dot display (same)
- good old dot matrix:
- RGB Led display
regarding the project itself:
new in game:
- possibily to add an auto launcher: the one used in totan 2.0 is the same as CV or SS. It requires to solder one switch but ball can launch manually of course. It requires to use the coil use on the backbox and in this case, a sound is played instead like CC.
- original sounds: music, quotes, effetcs... are now in stereo
- prototype anims and sounds put back
What I needed to run it:
- a set up computer(could be really basic, Linux or Windows)
- a control board.
If color: a lcd screen or a rgb led.
For the sound: it's possible to either plug an external audio speakers or plug back the original speaker to the computer with an amp with building a cable and 2 connectors. Same way as other projects. On my videos, tests has been done both ways.
- the 2.0 started from the V1.4 which was the last relase from WMS. This is not a new software but the original software AND an extension. The code/light, sound effects are exactly the same as original
- Original code has been completly rewritten in Python to be able to create the extension and is identical to the original.
- slow death (kingpin feature)
- advance tale will not be an automatic bonus here but a random one so the game play will not focus to only rotate the lamp.
- lot of new bonus has been added in "Bazaar" and "Make a wish"
- cow and easter eggs (see IPDB)
- new quotes from original voice actors
- the 3rd lock possibilty is used inside the game (was not used on the orginal software)
- there will be different endings depending of the performance during the game so the princess will not be saved easily.
- all the V1.4 modes
- 2 New fireball sequences
- 2 New Lightning lamp sequences
- new Harem mutl
- super genie multiball
- fireball multi
- lightning lamp multi
- new final
- new sinbad
- new scheherazade
- new flying carpet
- new flying horse
- new cyclop
- new camel race
- new Alibaba
- shooting phantom
- video mode: shell game
- The Sultan's Palace
- double tiger loop
Player will have to acheived the 7 old original tales at first.
At the end of the first quest: skeleton, wizard mode.. the princess will not be free and player will have to acheived the 7 tales again and other hidden modes to free the princess.
