An ongoing project...have a look!
While DEFCON certainly brings to mind the "look" and "feel" of "NORAD's Wet Dream" that is the set of the 80s flick, Wargames...once you go back and look at it...its not quite like it at all.
That's where this Mod comes in
Now...a bit of history:
Back in December of last year, a user named glcanon on Introversion's support board asked the question: Has anyone tried to make DEFCON look more Wargames?
Screencaps from the movie were posted, a search for a proper font began and work ensued. Screenshots were posted, ideas bounced to and fro...but nothing was released.
Then, horror of horrors...in January, glcanon suffered a drive crash. He was able to retrieve his font and and image of a bomber. A lot of discussion about the drive death suckatude...but Wargames seemed a bit dead.
In late March, Weps uploaded a modified sound for the Missile launch...perhaps Wargames was alive again. Perhaps not.
Then, Ambrosia, our guys in the field , finally released the OS X port of DEFCON along with Introversion. I could now enjoy this game native on OSX...no steam required (which let me tell ya, heheh...was less than optimal :))
I was determined to "finish the game" as Joshua would say...and so work began on WOPR: The Wargames DEFCON Mod.
From April 27th until today, I redrew new graphics, messed with glcanon's font a bit, and had a buddy of mine re-record some of the dialog and chatter from Wargames to use as DEFCON sounds.
zanzer7 , the maintainer of the DEFCON MODlist was working on a Wargames mod, too, and made a style that mad the game look more like WOPR/NORAD with cyan lines and coloring. This was added to my WOPR mod...a few more tweaks were made...and the result:
The WOPR Mod contains a new font, new color theme, new audio and new graphics for just about everything except for non-submarine naval units...simply because they weren't in the movie. This includes new cities, silos, sams, subs, nukes, fighters, bombers, airbases and nuke launch and GUI graphics.
