It is the particularly sensitive thing these days for fans of Star Wars: see (say it) more than worthy Rogue One: A Star Wars Story for a few weeks after losing to the forever dear Carrie Fisher by a heart attack should have been a roller coaster of emotions quite hard to bear. So that projects like this that we have discovered today in Polygon can serve more than one to take refuge in nostalgia and the full assurance that there will always be people working in the franchise that best balance displays pure capitalist expansion and sincere and genuine affection.
He mod is called XWVM and is work of some fans of the Star Wars: X-Wing original developed by Larry Holland and Edward Kilham for Lucas Arts in 1993 that want to update the classic doing that is leverage of them virtues technical of the engine graphic Unity, a luck of remastering by love to the art. In it visual the affair PT Super, e even them effects of sound that is have maintained intact bring of turned that magnificent setting during the fighting.
Perhaps the only problem that can be blamed him for the moment, apart from the fact that it is clearly unfinished and has work ahead, is the music. By what seen them responsible of the mod have tried take it track original of Michael Land in MIDI and pass it by a synthesizer for give you an air «more orchestral», but the result is frankly ugly. They say that the demo of the mod will be with this sort of upgrade questionable, but that in the final version, the idea is that there is the option of returning to the original sound.
In addition the mod will include system iMUSE (Interactive MUsic Streaming Engine) of the classic game, an invention which synchronized to what was happening in the space battles with certain sections of the music to give more excitement and epic action.
In principle not should fear for the future of XWVM. with regard to it purely legal because there is a difference clear between projects that Disney has lying makes little, as the recent case of the game free Galaxy in Turmoil, and this that us occupies: XWVM is strictly a mod, an accessory free, and by this requires that have installed the X-Wing original in their versions of Steam or GOG. We will see if this serves as a parapet or the immeasurable power of Disney ends up crushing it anyway, because they have already had problems of copyright only with the trailer (YouTube upload by detecting the logo of Star Wars or, tremendous, the famous sequence of ascending text), so shouldn’t have all.
