Had a thought today. Is there any benefit to splitting GE:X down the middle to where we'd have one patch devoted to Singleplayer, COOP, and Counter-OP and the other for Virtual Reality/Multiplayer? I'm no expert on this subject but if we were to do this would that allow for more content to be put into each patch such as maps, heads, bodies, weapons, etc? We'd remove everything that doesn't involve MP in the SP patch except for the things they both share and vice versa for the SP patch with MP stuff in it.

That way each patch gets focused on individually instead of cramming both SP and MP into one patch and having to worry about working on both at the same time.

I think Wreck wasn't keen if it was possible to keep it together. I suspect that once the game has been split then making the same tweaks on both will probably get a bit complicated. That being said, this is more or less exactly what I envisaged Golden Dark being - a multiplayer game with the best of both games but with no real single player.

Not exactly, the main thing both would share are the character selections and the weapons which only applies to those in the campaign.

Yeah, but changes done "under the hood" would need to be applied to both separated ROMs. Weapons have a lot going on, and having to edit the same thing into both every time would be incredibly frustrating. Animations, fire / reload microcodes, sounds, etc. It would be better to focus on the project as a whole, and then start expanding on a multi specific version after.

Fair enough, just worried about hitting the limit is all. I was thinking it would be cool to get a couple weapons, maps, and even some villains from a few well known Bond games but we're pretty tight on space as is. I'd love to think of GE:X as the ultimate James Bond experience with what I mentioned above and the already awesome Multi play we have right now but then there's always the issue of running out of space that is constantly looming over the project. Sucks we don't have the source code.

I'll say this though some people won't agree with me, if we ever have space issues I think the Christmas stuff like the Rudolph, Santa head + suit, and the map should go first. Not that they'd be gone entirely, I'd much rather have a holiday themed patch with those three things and more instead of just an update with a few holiday themed items.

I do have to say, if you (Wreck) are planning on releasing your work on GE:X + the documentation once the project is done it would be awesome to have a special GoldenEye X Solo and Multi section on the Vault. Would be phenomenal to play all of my favorite Solo and Multi levels from GE on the improved GE:X given the original authors take the time to import them. I'd love to see projects like Goldfinger 64 ported to GE:X with all new reloads and everything!

Hey! Just here to check in on how things are going. I figure not terribly much has been done but I just thought I'd swing by to ask. Hope all is well!
