Was that done on purpose or by accident?

Either way, it's funny. :D

Saw that this morning on my DSi, couldn't post, anyway...

This gave me an idea. What if someone were to make a boss robot using Dravis's head? You know, like in Star Fox 64 were you had to fight Andross and his hands. Hmmmmm?

I dont get it, did it just appear or something?

or is the collapsed mine entrance a texture of dravis' photo but all crumpled up?

I tweaked the exit sequence myself. That's also why the terrain is flat. I had created a new heightmap (just flat, messing around with a hex editor since I didn't have a image editor compatible with the format at the time), and then for kicks, in the TXB file for the level, I set the background planet to ENDGUY.BBM (used in the ending breifing).

(credits to Boogie for figuring out the format I needed to use)

Is that Dravis, or the money you could save by switching to Geico?  ::)

There are times you strive for greatness, to reach lofty goals and accomplish
noble deeds. Then there’s the rest of the times you just want to blow s--- up.

...lol!

I know in D3 sometimes textures don't load properly and get switched. But that the first time I have seen it in D1.

NUMBERZero just gave me an idea with his talk about a boss robot. How about one put a pic of a boss robot in the place of Dravis's head, so it looked like the boss was watching you escape the mine, plotting ways to kill you...

I know that if I didn't see it coming, I know that'd give me a good start. 8)

The size would be limited (I'm not sure if D1 allows planet textures larger than 64X64), but that could be done.

EDIT: actually it doesn't look too bad at around that size. I just tried doing it quickly (I'm sure every good student has Descent editing utlities on their computer :P). Just darken it and make it look like it's in the background

I think the Geico Money should be made into a boss.

Maybe the MD has to beat it in order to get his paycheck. :P
