DB Trailer 3 Thoughts

I am aware that the third trailer wasn´t the epitome of originality and awesomeness, so let me clear some things up.

-The Spencer Mansion featured in the trailer is running under RE2 engine. I know RE2 models can be ported to RE1 and viceversa, they share the same native format after all. This is a different animal, it´s not just Leon ported to RE1. For some TMD extravaganza you´ll have to wait for future trailers. Now wasn't the right time. My primary objectives are everything related to rooms and coding.

-The main purpose of the trailer was introducing the mansion and the crimson heads. The mansion will be totally revamped. I used the old backgrounds as a concept, basically because I don´t have new ones yet

-Leon´s "hooded version" is still the official costume of DB. Every RE have different outfits to choose from

-This is not another reboot/rebirth. Calm down. I didn´t abandon the project. I love to work in the shadows that´s all. After dealing with many RE mentally disturbed fans I thought it was the better option

-I think the zombie children would be a nice addition. I wonder if people will be mad at me for this

C2keo:

Background designer/weapons sound engineer

A very talented 3d graphic designer, he is the creator of the new pre-rendered backgrounds featured in Dark Biohazard. C2keo have the unusual ability to practically mimic the style and look of the old Resident Evil scenarios to the point you can't even distinguish between the original rooms and his work.

Born in Korea and living in the USA, he is the best of both worlds.

Dominion:

Game Designer/Coder/Screenwriter

A one man orchestra. He has been hacking games as a hobbie since he was a child. After fate united him with c2keo, Dark Biohazard became something more than a mere RE fangame which is shaping into a tribute to the RE series.

U.C.A.:

English/French Translator

When he is not playing D&D Online or wasting all his money purchasing movie merchandising on eBay, he assists Dominion in the hard work of making readable/understandable all the crap the latter writes.

His duty as English/French translator goes beyond the task of helping Dominion in the website management and extends to the in-game content and file transcripts as well.

Jow Hill:
Singer

She is the Mary Elizabeth McGwynn of Dark Biohazard, a rising star in the spanish music scene with a bright future waiting for her.

We are glad that Jowy agreed to share her voice, style and grace with us. Her reinterpretation of RE: Outbreak main theme is just amazing. You can download the track from the Features section.

Pablo O. "Dr. Henry Sarton":
Sound Composition/Arrangement

A music student since he was very young, he started playing the flute in a wind band and then continued studying at the conservatory. He is a big fan of the Original Soundtracks from the movies and has now become a fan of the videogames.

His melodies come to life in his room. He is a big fan of the Biohazard games as well and will try to remain true to the geniuses who worked in the series.You can download one of his works in the Features section.

Jon "Darkmoon" Garrett:
Script Monkey

An ancient lurker of the internet and Resident Evil fan sites, Jon can usually be found crying bitterly about the newer RE games and the movies at the Horror is Alive. 

His previous work includes parts of the script for the RE2 mod by Enrico known as Requiem of Spies and various zombie themed stories.  This time his job involves localizing the script of Dark Biohazard into English.

Nothing special to announce yet, beside that the new trailer is shaping nice.

C2keo is eager to get back to work and soon we will add a new member to our team.

My only worries right now are that Re2 runs so bad under NVIDIA cards. Even the infamous Sourcenext version suddenly dies and stop working or show some nasty sound issues. So if you have a  powerful computer with an Nvidia card installed, be afraid, be very afraid.

Don't sell your old computer/graphic card - just in case.

1. ¿Qué es Dark Biohazard?

Desde un punto de vista artístico, es una secuela directa ficticia de Biohazard/Resident Evil que tiene lugar en una realidad alternativa donde los STARS murieron durante el incidente de la Mansión Spencer. Es un interesante ejercicio creativo al estilo de las historietas 'What If?' de los comics de Marvel.

Técnicamente hablando, es una modificación gratuita de Resident Evil 2 para PC que añade nuevo contenido al juego como nuevos enemigos, personajes, habitaciones, etcétera.

Asimismo, el juego se dividirá en distintos episodios al estilo de RE Outbreak, con cada escenario disponiendo de su propio inicio y final, pero compartiendo un mismo argumento y personajes.

2. ¿Qué necesito para jugar?

Aunque Dark Biohazard será un juego por sí mismo, necesitará una copia original de RE2 para PC debido a que ciertos archivos no serán incluídos con la misión de evitar que sea acusado de piratería.

3. ¿Cuáles son los requerimientos técnicos?

No hará falta un gran ordenador para soportar Dark Biohazard. Recordad que Resident Evil 2 salió al mercado el 1998.

4. ¿Es Dark Biohazard compatible con Vista?

Imagino, teniendo en cuenta que estoy desarrollando el juego bajo XP.

5. ¿Cuando estará disponible para descargar?

Estamos trabajando en nuestro tiempo libre, algunos de nosotros incluso tiene dos trabajos. Viviemos tiempos difíciles. Así que no hay fecha de lanzamiento oficial. Como se suele decir, saldrá cuando esté terminado.

6. ¿Es Dark Biohazard una nueva versión del prototipo de RE2 alias RE 1.5?

Ambos juegos tiene mucho en común, pero no son lo mismo. Puedes ver a DB como la niña de los ojos de RE 1.5 si así lo deseas.

7.¿Tienes el RE 1.5?

En mis sueños más enfermizos.

8. ¿Será el mod llevado a las consolas?

Lo dudo seriamente. Existen una gran cantidad de dificultades técnicas, sin mencionar los temas legales.

1. What is Dark Biohazard?

From an artistic point of view, it is a fictionary direct sequel of Biohazard/Resident Evil that takes place in an alternative reality where all S.T.A.R.S. members died during the Mansion Incident. It´s a nice exercise a la 'What if?' of Marvel's comic book series.

Technically speaking, it´s a free modification of the PC version of Resident Evil 2 that adds new content to the game such as enemies, rooms, characters and so on.

Also, the game will be divided into various episodes/chapters in a similar fashion than RE Outbreak, with each scenario having its own start and end, but sharing the same plot and characters.


2. What do I need to play?

Even though Dark Bio will be a game of its own, it will require an original copy of the PC version of RE2 because certain files won't be included in the release in order to avoid being targeted as a pirate game.

3. What are the system requirements?

A great computer won't be necessary to run Dark Bio. Remember that RE2 was released on 1998.

4. Is Dark Biohazard Vista Compatible?

Probably, although the mod is being developed under XP.


5. When will it be available for download?

We are working on our freetime, some of us even have two jobs. We are living hard times. So there is no deadline. It will be released when it is done.


6. Is Dark Biohazard a new version of RE2 Prototype aka 1.5?

Both games share a lot in common, but they are not the same. You can think of DB as RE 1.5's lovechild if you want.

7. Do you have RE 1.5?

In my restless dreams.

8. Will the mod be ported to consoles?

I seriously doubt it. There are a lot of technical issues, not to mention the legal problems too.
