TOTAN 2.0 project rewrite in Python
Project name: Twilight Melody
Currently HD display in dev
Here is the link of the thread:
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)
- WIP HD display
- 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 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
- 2 video modes: shell game, escape game
- The Sultan's Palace
- double tiger loop
