Hi, everyone. My name is Rocket. I played EA-Land.
Hello, Rocket! Welcome to Project Dollhouse. If you have any questions, just ask.
Xezno, what happened to your TSO project? I thought you had one too?
Well, I am still working on it. But soon I am taking the transition to C++ (3D conversion and using the game files)
Sounds like a plan, xezno. Just be aware that C and C++ are generally considered to be quite tough languages, and you'll end up spending quite a bit more time than if you had done something in, say, Java.
HOWEVER, you're in luck, since you can just branch off of NIOTSO!
Technically, NIOTSO is in C, but if you need everything to be C++, you can always port
Exactly what I was doing xD
Or, I could use Java (but its a >=150MB download) with LWJGL like Minecraft does - but Pocket Edition uses C# or C++ which is partly why. It also means that if I want a mobile OpenGL ES port is possible. What language is Project Dollhouse in, or can I not branch off that? Also is there some kind of program to port from C to C++, I am lazy :S. Although, I did spend a lot of time on xTSO xD
Finally, someone puts a capital in my name
Project Dollhouse is C# using XNA. I'm getting increasingly worried about support in the future, because Microsoft has dropped support for and stopped developing XNA. Though XNA apps can still run in Windows 8, just not in Metro.
But Monogame is getting increasingly stable, so chances are that the final version will be built using it.
Its better for many reasons:
Multi Platform support
Faster updating (more updates than XNA)
Supports Windows 8 (and hopefully 8.1)
Hello Hayran, welcome to the community.
I have been following any and all projects that have anything to do with bringing back TSO pretty much since EA ended the game. I am a die-hard supporter of any effort. I just have no experience in coding anything. All I want to say is ... I hope the BETA test will be just one download without all that other seemingly complicated, (BASS.NET, Lua, XNA 3.1, .NET Framework, Visual C#, I have TSO installed
Just know I'm waiting patiently and hope when the time comes, I can play again! TSO founder 10/02- 8/08
What do you mean by TSO founder...
Also welcome to the community!
All of the beta testers in The Sims Online were given founder status. It was a big deal to us all back then, http://www.tsomania.net/specialfeatures/1000days.php.
Awesome - would you like to BETA test xTSO?
Founders are TSO beta testers. If you are a founder your profile had an emblem of a stick man holding a flag, kinda like an MTV music award, along with simmys. I'm a founder as well. Here's what it looked like.
Whats what it looked like? You never finished...
this was my house in Alphaville, notice the name of the property
this is the founder flag that got cut off the picture above, I would like to beta test.
Cool - I might implement "Since 2014" lol (that's the release date) and BETA testers from now on will get a "Veteran" flag too. PM me the username and password you'd like to use for xTSO and I'll put it in the server auths. The next release will be tomorrow, for updates 1-4 look at xeznotso.prophpbb.com - Update 5 will be the best!
