    New version of ROCK RAIDERS - update

    I thought I would share some good news on the remake of Lego Rock Raiders, we were going to call it Block Raiders (due to Lego trademark on the RR name, however the good news is that the trademark has expired and also the extra time they have to renew it, and we have just registered the 'Rock Raiders' trademark ourselves. The name will live on.

    I am the real Infomaniac

    Ha! a friend sent me a sample where the infomaniac was used...I am sincerely am honored..Why? because I wrote, designed and was the creative director of LEGO Island and designed the infomanic- many people and the staff said he looks like you...I didn't intend that but well....The product started in 1995 and realeased in 1997.the software abd development was pretty antiqye compared what was it was capable of doing then...but all and all- cool for seeing this...I gotta tell you- it was quite a maze to figure out how to register and I hope one can read this...Cheers all.

    Cafeteria (0.9.3) - Launcher & Mod Loader for LRR

    Cafeteria 0.9.3 Cafeteria is a Game Launcher and Mod Loader for LEGO Rock Raiders. It allows you to play game mods without manually installing them and it allows you to play LEGO Rock Raiders at higher resolutions than what was originally intended. It features the ability to run LRR at higher resolutions than 640x480 and it also features a music player for people who do not have their disc, which will play any music from a music folder when playing levels. Installation - First, download the latest version of Cafeteria at the bottom of this post. - Extract Cafeteria and all its files into the installation directory of LEGO Rock Raiders. This is usually: C:\Program Files (x86)\LEGO Media\Games\Rock Raiders - Your installation is finished. Whenever you want to play, start Cafeteria and launch the game through it instead. Requirements Most new computers already have these installed, however if you are missing one, you may get errors in the program. - .NET Framework 4.5 (Download) - Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 SP1 Redistributable Package (For Music to work) (Download) Installing Mods Mods come in files with the extension *.wadp. You can find mods in topics on this forum. To install a mod, simply place the WADP file inside the directory "Mods". You can confirm a mod has been installed and is valid by visiting the "Mod Manager" tab in Cafeteria. Adding Levels Cafeteria comes with a Custom Level Slot mod, this allows you to pick a level to be installed into that slot. Only levels made to work with it will actually work. For those levels, place the WADP files inside the Mods\CustomLevelSlot Folder. Adding Music When Cafeteria starts it will create a "Music" folder if one does not exist. You can play MP3 files into this folder and the will be played while you are in levels. Known Issues Clicking on your screen after pressing Launch (may, depends on timing) interfere with Cafeteria trying to skip the Mode Selection window. This could result in the resolution not being applied or Mode Selection not being skipped. It is best to not click on your screen until Rock Raiders has started. NO-CD Errors will probably break Cafeteria's attempt to skip Mode Selection. After the NO-CD error, if you get a Mode Selection window, make sure you click your resolution before pressing OK. Usually Cafeteria would do this for you, but the NO-CD error interferes with this process. Some levels make the Message Panel & Oxygen bar move up a little, this mainly is caused in Tutorial levels. When there is a lot of text in the message, it moves the message panel upwards to fit all the text. This issue will be fixed in the future. Message text appears where the Message Panel was. This will be resolved in future versions possibly as part of a resolution pack update. Menu doesn't stretch to the full screen width. Yes the menu areas have not been updated in the resolution packs, so far only in-game panels have been moved. This will be resolved in future resolution packs. The mission briefing buttons are in random places on the screen and aren't sitting with the main panel. This will be resolved in future resolution packs. FAQ I unchecked "Fullscreen" and the game didn't get past Mode Selection and the "OK" button is greyed out? Windowed mode requires the monitor be set to 16Bit colour depth. You cannot pass this until you've changed this in your computer's screen resolution settings. I chose a larger resolution, but the game started in 640x480? This could be because of a couple of things. Mainly however, it means the chosen resolution didn't get clicked on the Mode Selection window when the game started. Quit the game, go to the Settings panel on Cafeteria and uncheck "Attempt to skip Mode Selection". When you launch the game, make sure you click on the resolution on the Mode Selection window BEFORE clicking OK. I chose my resolution and I get a WARNING about a missing resolution pack? This means Cafeteria could not find a resolution pack for your resolution in the Mods\Resolution folder. Check the topic for supported resolutions. If this folder is empty, please re-install Cafeteria, they are packaged with it. How do I make my own Patches? Please see this topic: Patch Documentation for Cafeteria Notes on D3DRM During testing of the program it was found that different versions of the D3DRM dll cause different crashes and different stages of the game for seemingly no reason at all. If you start experiencing a crashes running Cafeteria with no mods, you should try different versions of the D3DRM dll. The version Cafeteria was tested with is packaged with Cafeteria and I recommend using it if this is the case for you. Supported Resolutions Cafeteria comes packaged with support for 30 resolutions. If your resolution is not in here, please inform me so I can add it. 4096x2160, 3840x2160, 2560x1600, 2560x1080, 2560x1440, 2048x1536, 2048x1080, 1920x1200, 1920x1080, 1776x1000, 1680x1050, 1600x1200, 1600x900, 1440x900, 1400x1050, 1366x768, 1360x1024, 1360x768, 1280x1024, 1280x960, 1280x800, 1280x768, 1280x720, 1280x600, 1152x864, 1152x648, 1024x768, 800x600, 720x576, 720x480. Screenshot Changelog 0.9.3 [Important Update!!] |- [FIX] Fixed command "AddFilesFromDirectory" not overwriting files that already exist in that directory. |- [ADD] "Quick Start Level" setting added for development use which will start the selected level in the Custom Level Slot immediately. |- [ADD] "Add Mod" button added to Mod Manager that will move a patch to the mod folder or replace it if it already exists. Download Latest Version (0.9.3) (Warning: If your Anti-Virus says it contains a virus, it is a false positive. It contains a memory editor and this makes bad anti-virus programs nervous).

    All bricks/chassis, all the time

    A really simple but very useful mod that gives you access to every car chassis and piece in the builder at any given time (even ones you can't normally use): In GAME DATA/OBJECTS/BRICKS, there's a file called UNIQUEBRICKS.TXT, which contains "All the bricks that can go in the game ever". Now, see UNIQUEBRICKSGENERIC.TXT? It lists "The generic bricks - available in all worlds". Simply overwrite it with a copy of UNIQUEBRICKS.TXT, and boom, every chassis and piece is accessible everywhere. Edit - There seem to be quite a few newcomers who don't know you have to unpack the game's GTC before doing any modding, so here's a link for that:

    LEGO Island Information Center MOC WIP

    Welcome! Velcommen, konichiwa, aloha! How ya doin? Yo! And in any language, welcome to LEGO Island the Information Center! Ever since I discovered my own copy of LEGO Island (>recounted here,) I wanted to build my own, tangible, Information Center. I started in LEGO Digital Designer with the "i" logo on the floor, continued with the Big blue Brick Book, and the big "i" in front of my desk. Brick by brick, tock by tick I began to construct the model in reality, from flowers to cups and red to blue to the elevator, to oh my yes, your score cube; Whoops, I forgot the radio! There's still so much to do, things like racing and jet-skiing getting a few parts in the right colors, building up the walls, and obstructing that ugly framework. Recreation Ingame Comparison See you later, Brickulator!

    New version of ROCK RAIDERS - update

      The problem is that this is exactly what the Rock Raiders United community doesn't want, or at the very least that is the general attitude that many people have around here. Rock Raiders is a very casual game already up until a few levels near the end and many of the mods that RRU has made try to make the game more challenging. The core demographic for the original game was children, so that is understandable. Now, we have grown up and the majority of us are 15 to 25 years old. We can take a challenge.       This makes me feel a little bit better about the situation. In my eyes, Rock Raiders was one of your best games and I have hope that you are willing to show us a game that's even better than the original Rock Raiders. Of course, when I say "you" I'm addressing all of DDI -- the programmers, the artists, the musicians, the engineers, and the leaders.       I was talking to a few people about this and we're actually concerned about you developing this game on multiple formats at once. Having multiple formats means that you need multiple teams to work on each version, which splits your time and energy. If you're planning on PC, Wii, WiiU, Android, iOS, and Facebook... you're spreading your effort way too thin and the main product (PC) will suffer. And honestly, the game will end up being completely different for each format. The PC has mouse and keyboard controls which are superior to a controller (WiiU) or pointer (Wii), and far superior to a touchscreen (Android, iOS). The general attitude towards Facebook games for many people around here is negative, and I feel that you will receive either backlash or apathy towards a Facebook version of the game. We do not want Farmville Raiders. We do not want to waggle a Wiimote at a screen in order to drill a wall. Please understand this. Your trending analysts may say that Facebook games are hot right now and the casual market is something you need to capture, but RRU in general is not in that market. I don't want to speak for everyone, but I think we are looking for a game that makes us think and plan ahead.

    LL-947 Space Defender

    Built to replace the ageing fleet of LL-918 one-man spacecrafts, the LL-947 has 6 side mounted lasers on the wings to defend itself from the forces of Blacktron, which was a key problem with the old 918 class spacecrafts, who couldn't defend themselves if they ran into trouble. There are numerous reports that some of these have been modified by Blacktron to use against our forces, but so far there is no photographic evidence of these occurrences. Check out my photostream for more images! https://www.flickr.com/photos/ayliffemakit/

    Lego Rock Raiders HQ [MOC] 7000 parts!

    After 2 months of building I where able to finish this giant! I don't even know where to start, it have taken so long and it have been so fun to watch it grow over the weeks (but I have to admit it got a little boring to build some of the rock sections). At some points I had my doubts that I would be able to finish it of due to how massive it was and when I constantly realized that I had to make it bigger too fit this and that but in the end it was worth it! The finished models weights in at 7,7kg (around 20 pounds/16lbs and have something between 7000-8000 parts! Sorry for the bad picture btw! by =DoNe=, on Flickr by =DoNe=, on Flickr by =DoNe=, on Flickr

    Project Darwin and LEGO's First Steps into the Digital World

    If you haven't yet had a chance to look through Brick by Brick, the recent book by David C. Robertson, I highly recommend it. Amongst other things it deals with LEGO's first forays in the digital world, through internal project they titled Darwin. According to the book (to the best of my memory, I don't currently have access to it to check), Darwin began when a Swedish man paid a visit to LEGO HQ. He insisted that he meet with Kjeld, and eventually got his wish. What he had to share was a highly impressive 3D animation featuring LEGO spaceships. The goal of project Darwin was to create a complete library of digital LEGO bricks, perfect in every detail. Then, to use these bricks to create a system for developing videos, games, and any number of computer-based paraphernalia LEGO could wish for. After many years of testing and playing with numerous concepts, and huge investments on LEGO's part, the company realized that technology was too limited to get them where they wanted fast enough. In addition, the employees on the Darwin team were being perceived by others to be receiving special treatment from the company, creating an ugly divide that made cooperation difficult. In 1998, LEGO Media was established, and quickly replaced Darwin and all of LEGO's ambitions related to it with a new aim of outsourcing to other companies to produce games. But that isn't why I'm here, posting this topic. I'm here because someone on the Bricklink forum just linked to The LEGO Movie - not the upcoming feature film, but what appears to be the original animation that inspired LEGO to launch Darwin. This animation, then, is the basis of everything LEGO has since done digitally. But that isn't all. Here is a window into some of the work that went on during the days of the Darwin project.

    Something a little different...mock LEGO Space print ad from the 80s...

    What do you do when you have only two Classic Spacemen and Photoshop? >This, apparently. The kitchen in my house has a little light that looks a bit like a flying saucer...I thought it'd be fun to take a picture of two LEGO astronauts exploring the vast kitchen counter, and seeing the lamp from below. It didn't turn out quite as well as I liked, so I tried to spruce it up by creating a magazine-style LEGO ad. I'd like to do more in the same style, probably featuring Pirates since I actually have those sets, definitely using actual magazine dimensions. Thoughts? TC

    Scrapped Zones And More

    Oh man, you guys aren't gonna believe this stuff... Tom and I talked quite a bit via email today, and Bill Benecke (the concept artist guy) got involved too. They're really great guys, both very friendly, and were happily surprised to hear the game has fans. Here's the rundown. So, I initially emailed Tom and briefed him on the game/theme's status as a well-loved classic in the LEGO community, our progress in modding it, and the various finds regarding LEGO Logic and such, and basically asked if he had any info he could add to this. Boy, did he ever! So yeah, my jaw dropped. I sent an email back, thanking him for the details, and also linking him to this and this as examples of what fans have done with the theme. He loved them, and added that he's gonna try to dig up some more LEGO Logic and Alpha Team development stuff sometime. He also had an amusing little anecdote to share: He also mentioned where some of the other developers are at now, and what their current projects are: He then forwarded my email to Bill, who added the following: And Bill's email reminded Tom of more specific details of LEGO Logic, and then things started really coming together: And finally: I'm so darn happy right now.

    The Ace Railgun

    A Temporary Farewell

    Well I think it's time for me to move on, time to look past RRU, it's been a good 1 9/10ths years here, and I've had loads of fun. But I'm currently in a rather bumpy part sector of my life, in a few months I'll be starting HRT (Hormone Replacement Therapy) so I'll have to find my self again, and I'll be rid of my boyish appearance in 1-2 years. But I feel that it'd be better for me to transition free of distractions, as I'll also be taking on my internship during the same summer I start hormones, then one more semester of school afterwards. I've also got to get my Drivers License, and passport, both of which are crucial to my future plans, this along with the Anime project is giving me a lot to think about. I'll still probably keep in touch with friends on Skype and Steam and will answer a few PMs. But I won't be back until I finish my transition, and have settled down in Japan. JJ, Xiron, Aidenpons, DM, Noghiri, Shadowblaze, Fushi, Someswedish, Ben24x7, Robinate, RobExplorean, Quisoves, Seaborgium, Le Vee, Sadie, McStudz etc (the list is too long ) , thanks for being awesome friends, you guys'll probably still see me floating around cyberspace.
