That's great work! I just have one question -- are you having to go in and re-do every single Pokémon, and if so, how long will that take?!

I can't wait for your MMORPG to debut! I'm about to go throw something at someone if it doesn't come out soon, heh.

Nice job.

But it looks kinda squarish... At least from the bottom view o.o

what do you mean 're-do'? we have to make them from grounds up :S how long? i dunno. i am sure that we will be adding pokemon LONG after the beta launches

and about squarishness: models are extremely low-poly: under 1k. for that polycount, they look awesome ;)

01-28-2005, 05:36 PM
Wow, a cel-shaded 3D Pidgey, now that looks cool!

I'm not sure what's going on with this Pokémon Online thing, as this thread is the first I've heard on the subject, but if the Pokémon are gonna' look anything like this Pidgey, rock on dude!!

You had been working on this project previously, and it was demolished correct? That's what I meant. I thought you may have already had some PKMN done.

btw what's the system this is going to run on? I'm assuming this can't possibly be browser based...

ManTis
04-05-2005, 10:38 PM
>.> @ Kenny. It will be a full-blown mmorpg :S

It will be runnable on both Windows and *nix systems. Actually it will be as portable as SDL library. OpenGL, too. As for requirements: I hope for writing code good enough that will run fast on PIII 800, 256 mb RAM, GF2.

When are you going to finish the MMO?

BTW: Very cool. XD

ManTis
04-18-2005, 12:08 AM
blah I hate that question. the answer is: whenever it is ready.

possibly it will be under works as long as Nintendo/Gamefreak will bless us with new Pokemon games. New games = new rules/pokemon to code. Simple as that.

::JD::
04-22-2005, 03:56 AM
What'd you use to make that model?

Yeah the elekid kicks total ass. Can't wait for the game.

Matt
05-03-2005, 08:34 PM
What program did you make these on?

Zenaku
05-03-2005, 08:40 PM
I believe moomoo (I think that's his/her name; the projects Pokemon model creator) creates them in 3D Studio Max.

Anyway, more great models.

ManTis
05-04-2005, 09:21 AM
his. but he's not anymore alone, we finally got some new modellers :). they're working on: 3dsmax, gmax, and milkshape. (moomoo puts the models together, fixes them and such in 3ds)

It's not a metal thing. It's an acorn, so the shell has a "lid", which covers the nut (and holds it to the tree).

Dog of Hellsing
05-04-2005, 11:07 PM
I like the Elekid best.

Hmmm, what would I have to do to convince you to do the Tar family?

Matthew
05-05-2005, 05:16 AM
Ummm... why not just make ONE thread for all the models? This board will be cluttered with the MMORPG updates if you do them daily :eek:

But other than that.... I love them as usual :P I really love how they keep their anime appearance, but are in 3d format... it looks childish, but a hell of a lot better than what they did for collosium/stadium... those looked too weird for me... I prefer realistic compared to anything, but that is personal taste... This is better than nothing :P

Jack of Clovers
05-05-2005, 07:45 AM
Ummm... why not just make ONE thread for all the models? This board will be cluttered with the MMORPG updates if you do them daily :eek:
i second that. it'd be a lot easier to have all the models in one post.
btw, ur doing a great job. :mrgreen: i like Rattata the best so far.

~Jack~

Dog of Hellsing
05-05-2005, 12:04 PM
*Nods.* Maybe they could be edited into one post and stickied? That way they'd all be easy to find.

ManTis
05-05-2005, 01:25 PM
the problem is that we sometimes have new model after one day, sometimes after one week. i would have to bump week old posts sometimes, which is usually frowned upon on boards.

EDIT:
Of course if some mod were to merge my posts into one 'MMORPG update' or something, and sticky them... :rolleyes:

Jack of Clovers
05-06-2005, 06:30 PM
reviving a thread started by yourself is okay. no probs.

not sure about a sticky but i could definitely try merging the threads and see what happens.

~Jack~

Dog of Hellsing
05-06-2005, 09:13 PM
Well, sticky seems like the better choice becauze, since so many peple like them, it'd be easier to have them stickied where everyone can find them without hassle. Meh, it's up to you Mod people though, I guess ^_^.

Anyways, keep up the good work. I'm looking forward to seeing more of these things. ^_^

Zenaku

Dog of Hellsing

You know, I've always wondered about that myself. And also why Ariados only has four legs...unless those things on its butt are also legs...O_o I dunno.

My apologies if this has already been answered, but is there anything more to this project than the cel-shaded 3D pokémon (which look amazing, by the way)?

I'd love to see some in-game screenshots or read some more information about the project, if there is anything.

Id say spinarak isnt an arachnid, its a pokemon.. XD

Great models, tell me, will you be making more animations like the charizard doing flamethrower?

moomoo
06-17-2005, 08:07 AM
Hi. I thought i'd register here so ManTis wouldnt have to handle this whole thread by himself :)

in the summer i'll start making more animations that will be used in the trailer we're working on. the trailer will not be pre-rendered like the charizard animation; it will be in-game footage instead.

Amaru
06-17-2005, 09:57 AM
So you're saying the RPG will have animations like the charizard one, in battle?

*wets his pants in excitement*

moomoo
06-17-2005, 04:51 PM
that is the plan, yes. though of course the charizard animation is pre-rendered, and i can't guarantee the in-game celshading will be of the same quality.

ManTis
06-18-2005, 09:43 AM
*Looks around*

What? What? My celshading is better than yours!

*Goes back to coding*

*sniffles with tears of happiness* I'm quite happy to hear that -someone-, -somewhere- took initiative and decided to work on something like this. XD Considering some of the popularity that MMORPGs have these days, I wondered why nobody over in Japan hadn't jumped at the chance to draw more people to the Pokemon craze...you will be doing all the areas covered by the game or are you creating a mix/your own? ^_^ *wags tail* I sit and wait in anticipation...

Ultima Shadow
10-29-2005, 08:46 AM
I can honestly see this being one of the best MMORPGs on the Net. I mean, the graphics are the best I've ever seen- I'd rather have these graphics than what they gave us in Pokemon Stadium.

ManTis
11-28-2005, 03:03 PM
Sorry for so long no updating. I moved from Poland to UK and was raising money for server for Ekaiyo and for better dev station. I luckily gathered some cash to have place to stay and food and still was enough left for some comp. Now I'm waiting for my comp to arive (I should have it till the end of week) and I'm back to hard work. No, project isn't dead - it was just delayed. I'd like to excuse all of you who were looking forward to this one. We soon will be back at full speed. Cheers, guys!

Seawolf

Excellent!

btw, is Blueyes (sp?) a banned spammer or something on your forum? I tried viewing the Project forum, but it says I am banned from the forum- banned for being Blueyes.

How did this happen? I haven't even been on your forum before. :\

Some of the models need tweaking (Golbat for example), but just to show you that we're working ;)

gun6
05-13-2006, 01:15 PM
Those are all very beautiful! ^_^
The Meowth looks kinda... strange. For some reason, the arms look slightly too long, the eyes are slightly too big, and the mouth is placed too far up. Oh well, that's just my opinion. xP

ManTis
05-13-2006, 01:50 PM
Like I said - they need tweaking ;)

Ultima Shadow
05-14-2006, 12:03 AM
Yeah, I agree with gun6, the Meowth does look strange... but, they're all great! Good to see you haven't abandoned the project, especially one so huge. :D

ManTis
07-24-2006, 07:33 AM
****, I forgot to update PE2K, sorry guys :*

http://mantis.ekaiyo.net/ekaiyo/alpha.JPG

Most of the graphics are temporary though, for example the sky instead of perlin noise is a simple texture slapped on quad (cause I was too lazy at 4 am to do it). At this moment I'm putting together the code parts that I made over the years, making them object oriented (most of them weren't created this way, cause they were supposed to be 'rapid development' help ;) ) and replacing respective parts of the main code.

Hello everybody,

As you probably noticed, for last couple of weeks, or even months (since GDC London) project has been pretty quiet, well... dead.
It's time to face it - Ekaiyo in the form that was developed cannot exist. People broke off from the project: they started appearing less frequently or even disappeared totally. Yes, it was mainly my (ManTis) fault. I required lots from everybody, but when I had faced real life, I couldn't keep up, everything was always 'soon to be done'. I made couple mistakes with the project: I didn't plan sensibly, I wasn't overseeing everything, I didn't have any real schedule, lack of time due to trying to get that job that was supposed to actually keep Ekaiyo running, and most of all - when started the project, I had not even close to enough experience to make a working MMORPG. This all said, the Ekaiyo as we know it has come to an end. There was no other option, even though we gave it our best.

I haven't seen JB in days, Wishy is mostly idling, Theo jumps in and out only once in a while. Only other person apart from me still going online every day to talk about game development is moomoo. We had very long talk and decided that it's time to face the truth. We cannot keep updating you with 'wait just a sec, hold on', because eventually both you and us will become tired of this. In no way we can resume working on Ekaiyo sooner than February next year (after my interview with Germans). So - even though this is one of the hardest decisions I made in life, the project is on indefinite hold.

Keep in mind that it's only our decision, and we did NOT receive any pressure from Nintendo.

However, there are few more things that you might want to know.

First - me and moomoo started z00t Theater and we aren't going to give up on it. Even if it's back to us two, we'll work on games. My!Planet 3 is being developed every night now, I sleep ~4 hours/day, reading books about advanced topics and learning more and more about programming. We want to do this game completely, from beginning to end, and have it fully polished before starting on anything else again. We need something that we lack now - certainty that we can start and finish a project we aim at.

Second is that if M!P3 is finished, it may be the time that we decide we gained enough momentum to resume working on MMORPG. Cause we aren't giving up on Ekaiyo, not now, not ever. We gained lots of experience through these two years, and we did quite a lot of good work. If we will be confident that we fully understand what we're undertaking, we'll do it. We won't 'try making mmorpg' again. There is no try, to quote certain small, green-skinned smart guy. We still have got the models, code, and ideas you and we had for this game, and we'll certainly work with them when we'll return. I won't lie to you, we might resume working on Ekaiyo in February, but we might as well resume it in two years, and you have to understand that. We certainly won't jump into it with such ease, and we understand if you won't be enthusiastic anymore, but that's how things will go.

We'd like to thank you for all the energy you spent on this project and sharing our dreams. We'd also like to apologize that we couldn't give you the final project just yet, it's truly devastating to feel that we failed such awesome community. Maybe one day, even if you won't be frequenting our sites anymore, you'll see somebody talking about 'pokemon mmorpg'. Check it out. Maybe it isn't us, but if it is, maybe we have already released some playable version.

This is what we'd like to wish you and ourselves,
ManTis & moomoo
The z00t Theater team.

Man, I feel like crying like a little baby. I'm putting away not just a game, I'm putting away my child, my dream.

That's really too bad to hear ManTis :( I was following the images you posted here, and couldn't wait until I got a new pc and I was seriously hoping it to turn into a demo soon. I hope you eventually continue it, don't forget you always have fans here at PE2K ;)

These things take time, and if the production stops it takes even longer. You just have to be patient.

I'm not sure how much longer this can be stalled. This is happening way to often (In General), People promising online MMORPG's (especially Pokemon Ones) without being able to follow through, even when they have the best of intentions.

Although I must say it looked good ManTis, Please throw us a bone...

Hello!

I've completely forgotten to update you guys, since ManTis bought his own website now and he's posting all the project-related stuff there.
The site: http://www.z00ttheater.com
forum: http://www.z00ttheater.com/ekaiyo
IRC info:
irc.afternet.org (irc://irc.afternet.org)
#pokegeeks

Now, the actual progress...
ManTis made a nice progress bar here (http://www.z00ttheater.com/tracker/projects/roadmap/ekaiyo), where you can currently see that 50% is done. Although, I must warn you that this does not mean 50% of fully working MMO. No! It means 50% of the preproduction phase!
Once they'll get to the alpha, gameplay and actual content will be added for your(and mine) enjoyment.
And when the beta phase will arrive.. well.. I think I'll have to break-up with my girlfriend ;)

The graphics department, or should I say jahajazz, made a LOT of new models, so now there are more than 88models done. They can be viewed here (http://www.z00ttheater.com/renders/).

Since not so long ago, we also have a voice & sounds department!
bezet is an audio specialist and he's making some cool sound effects, like Tail Whip (http://z00ttheater.com/downloads/tailwhip.wav), Hydro Pump (http://z00ttheater.com/downloads/hydropump.wav), Bite (http://z00ttheater.com/downloads/bite.wav), and Tackle (http://z00ttheater.com/downloads/tackle.wav).

I should tell you that ManTis finally moved into another apartment and got a job, so he's been quite the active programmer lately! I should also mention Theorem and bezet, who are also programming for ekaiyo in their spare time! Thanks!

Ok.. now that I've fed you with lots of that yummy information, I want to ask some things of YOU - the public!

Sound - bezet is in dire need of your voices!! So, if you can imitate or at least mimic the sounds of pokemons, please contact bezet at ekaiyosounds@googlemail.com
More info here (http://www.z00ttheater.com/ekaiyo/index.php?topic=2298.0).
Graphics - ManTis approved quite a few models, but denied a few, as well, so he'd be very pleased, if you could comment on the unapproved ones here (http://www.z00ttheater.com/ekaiyo/index.php?topic=2303.0).


The end..
Ok, it's been a while since I've written a large block of English text, so if you have any questions FIRE AWAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYY!!!!!

07-07-2008, 09:27 AM
lol, no.

mmorpgs don't get finished soon.. especially, if there's only 0-2 programmers working part-time on it.
but you can come and help the project move toward the goal by doing voices, models, concept art, etc.

A week or two ago a new programmer came to IRC and applied for the tests.
And yesterday ManTis accepted him into the developer team!!

This is very good news since programmers usually run away or ManTis doesn't trust them :P

Anyway.. WELCOME TO THE TEAM TopYoash!

Yah, as Neo said, keep it going, but watch out; a developer within nintendo is trying for the rights for Pokemon to make an MMO for the Wii.

Still, don't give up. You know this'll be a huge hit with the hardcore fans. I'll certainly try it.

I just saw this now. The animation (red gyaridos in particular) looks amazing. Keep developing and keep the update coming. Been wanting a pokemon mmo for a long long time and that pokemon black stuff doesn't help lol

Good luck fellas :)

Also i wouldn't worry about the wii game developers (an extreemly small one at that) wanting to make a wii ware mmorpg for pokemon.. Its one of 4 games they are pitching to nintendo (others being james bond, battle star gallactica and i forget the 3rd, sorry hehe) but yeh nintendo picking the pokemon one up, if any is slim. But still it could happen but it's nothing to concern yourself about.

Can't wait for this to debut. Looks great, animation is smooth, sounds are correct...

My friend, I think you have a career in video game design ;D

Just so you know, Aron have a mouth under their helmets-hard to see, but I played around with the camera on Collosuem. Just a tip ^.^

You may also want to make the Feebas a little shorter-it looks kinda squished. Finally, the Shroomish looks a little too tall-the legs shouldn't be so exposed. But I'm used to the pokemon games, so what do I know.

Keep up the good work, I'm rooting for you.

Preproduction is well along the way. Keep in mind that the following image is test only, ground texture isn't finalized, GUI isn't designed, level was quickly made just so the characters don't float in the air and so forth. It's just for testing game elements.

Ok, ready?

Good.

or maybe a cool idea would be tournaments like jhoto league xD

Yeah he does. Work hard on him, because he's honestly been done rather poorly every time he's appeared in 3d. It's possible, so don't give up, but don't settle for something that doesn't do the guy justice.

And kudos to keeping this project up and alive. It rocks, and you guys sure are dedicated.
