I just had a brilliant idea involving willhelm screams.
« on: May 06, 2010, 11:07:36 AM »
So I thought to myself: "Aegis, how can you make your sessions of AI War more comical?"

After thinking of making the aiwar exe open by using an RFID device on my desk, and imagining playing ai war with a touch screen monitor( a cool idea that I look forward to tooling with when I get a new summer job), I settled for something a little more feasible.

AI War, meet Wilhelm scream. That's right..for the rest of the week, I will search for a way to include the infamous Wilhelm scream into the game. Imagine, destroying guard posts and stations that scream, an AI that will scream when defeated..but the best use..screams substituting the gneric explosions that occur when ships are destroyed in mainstream combat.

For those who have no clue what I am talking about and think I am mad: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wilhelm_scream explains it and provides a sample.

Just did the file replacement specifically for ShipExplodeEnemy.

100% Worth it! Hilarity ensues

Replace the alarm sound with the fallowing: http://www.albinoblacksheep.com/flash/youare

Also, Arcen should stealthily replace the home command station death sound with a rick roll.

Clearly you need to use this as the raid warning (for the entire time the raid is pending--incentive to play at higher difficulties for shorter raid timers).

I concede, your alarm sound is much more suiting.  WATCH OUT! LOOK!

Heaven help you if you every trigger two alarms at once.  Probably best to just destroy all defenses and hope the AI kill you in an act of mercy.

On that note, too bad you don't get a specific music track every time the devourer golem shows up, it could play this!

I liked Navi..I don't understand the hate. Anyone that had to deal with Navi that much, needed her.

Ok, that made me lols.  You should do that for a week on a beta update.  "This week is dedicated to Rick Rolling."  Then of course fix it next week :P

I think we missed that opportunity when we released the Avenger; when the screen goes white in the AI home command station explosion, the white fades and instead of the Avenger you see... ! ;)

An ominous figure approaching with a familiar sound?  ;)

You really did miss and opportunity.
