E:SoR Images
« on: January 14, 2010, 12:03:39 am »
I'm gonna go ahead and use this thread to post varying images that have been produced for this game. They may be screenshots. They may be other things. This post will be updated each time I have something to add, though I will (if legit) bump the topic and let it be known.

( 1 ) The first contribution I've got to add is a map of Escheron in all its goodness, with markings that show all the important parts. The small airship symbol next to the names means you need to fly to get there. Courtesy of Zera.

I'm glad you're not as selfish as I am in terms of posting storyline.  Thank you for the info, and the map is sweet!

That's great!  Is that the full map for the game, or just part of it?

I really like the 3d-ish look of the map. Very cool. ^^

This only represents the overworld. (but all of the location markers are there) There's also an underworld to explore, and various dungeons located within other maps; so they aren't indicated on the main overworld itself.

It's a fairly small world, and there are quite a few locations that are linked together by detours and alternative exits.

Looking at it carefully, now, didn't that used to be the map for the first Lost Legends?

Oh, no. The original LL world is really... minuscule. You can still find a bitmap of it here.

I consider LL a failed project at this point. The scope of the game was just too small for something that would demand so much attention to detail; and there was a general lack of expertise on my part. It doesn't help that our programming team went missing-in-action :P

I already decided that Escheron is an independent game at this point. There is really no relation between the two games in the first place. Besides -- Escheron is far more advanced, and has a lot more to offer than LL ever would have. I don't think anyone is missing out on anything.

I did turn the project over to Galandros, but beyond that, I have no idea how it's coming along... if at all. That's entirely up to him. As far as I'm concerned, the assets, the story -- everything -- is his to do as he pleases with.

Oh wow I remember now. I guess I got confused. I think all old LL and LL2 images are still avaliable at http://www.omnimaga.org/images/screenshots/ and have been for ages, but they had so weird file names that I couldn't remember them.

It still sucks LL1 died, tho, that could have also been a nice RPG. It would sure have been smaller and more limited but still nice to play and would have fitted the need of people who prefer smaller file sizes

Hah. I can't believe all those old images are still on the server. It's interesting to see how much things progress along the way.

Since the images were always hosted on a different server than the forums during the entire time we were on Invisionfree, everything uploaded since the boards opening remained there. The folder was never open for public browsing until maybe this Summer, though, where I thought it would be cool if all these lost screenshots were avaliable again for public (even some from projects I worked on back in 2004-05). Right after the move, I moved all files on the same webspace as my MTVMG forum. Heck, I even discovered recently that one of the old board emoticon webspace is still up. I forgot the URL, though. It was in the IRC logs.

Can't neglect this thread. I'll leave some recent screenshots here:

Yay! I always loved the FF4 and Mystic Quest feel in this (and a bit of FF1-2 too)

I was hoping to reflect a "Final Fantasy" feel. Honestly, that has been the biggest inspiration for the game.
