My new project: the ACYS engine

Post by Krux » Mon May 27, 2013 8:59 pm

(FOR THE PEOPLE WHO THINKS I'M MAKING ALTERATIONS ON THE MAIN YSFLIGHT.EXE FILE, YOU'RE WRONG! ACTUALLY, ACYS IS BASICALLY SOME MODIFICATIONS IN TEXT FILES AND IN MAPS, AIRCRAFTS AND ETC:)


My new project, also named "ACYS" (abreviation for Ace Combat YS, or YS version) is basically, an YSFLIGHT only with Ace Combat stuff


Yeah. To be honest, i was planning to do this project looooong time ago, to be exact, when i found the AC3YS pack.

I'm improving the graphics (BUT OFF COURSE, SINCE YSFLIGHT IS NOT DESIGNATED NOT ONLY FOR PEOPLE THAT HAVE GREAT COMPUTERS, I'M INSERTING LOW VISUAL AIRCRAFTS FOR THOSE WHO THE COMPUTER DON'T SUPPORT AWESOME GRAPHICS) and making some alterations on the font files (you know, the .uitxt files, which some people make traductions of the game)

Here are some screenshots (and also, for the people that will say i'm not giving credits for the mods shown here, I'M GIVING CREDITS! the following addons where taken by: Soul of Darkness Ace Combat 3 HD pack. I'm still making more screenshots that i'm also putting as the menu ones, but since i don't have them...)

and that's it. Stay Tuned!

Sounds interesting. Just as a note, it's generally frowned upon (in fact, forbidden) to release mods WITH the YSF executables, so please release the mod as a package to overwrite a stock ysf install. ;)

Then someone needs to say something to Flightsim dot Com for hosting a modified kernel of YSFlight that has addons from different mod makers and being released as a standalone game called YF-23 Simulator.

Could he release it as a whole separate game?

Absolutely not.

They did not write the code for YSFlight nor do they have intellectual ownership of anything from ysflight.

What they are doing is typical copyright theft, and that is very much ILLEGAL.

Some of you may remember our Xmas pack we released in winter/(or summer, if you live in the cool part of the hemisphere.) We actually got permission from soji yamakawa himself to release the pack with the ysf exe's included, for a limited time only.

Rest assured, we won't let this just sit. ;)

I encourage anyone here involved with it (if you are) to disaffiliate yourselves from the project immediately.

EDIT: OH, I see you are talking about THIS project here, the ACYS one.

he can do whatever he wants, just not include the YSF exe's. Ever play 3rd party minecraft games? they have auto downloaders to download the program from the official site, NOT bundled. I doubt that can be done with where YSF is stored, but if it could be done, absolutely nothing wrong with that. (though, he SHOULD at least make it clear that the download is coming from YSFlight.com, and MUST credit soji.)

How does this affect the graphics? It's just an addon pack. I can't see any change.

I think that what he meant was that the detail on some aircraft are, admittedly, quite crappy especially the AC3YS pack :? . Thus, he wants to make a collection, or as some might call it, a compilation, of highly detailed mods mirroring that of aircraft from the Ace Combat series. What I've been doing so far is compiling all of the AC3 aircraft for YS that I know so far, but is only for AC3. What he's trying to do, in my mind at least, is compiling all of the aircraft from the series, especially detailed ones, into one package with the executable. Unfortunately the latter has met with disapproval from OfficerFlake, so yeah...

Language barriers may have contributed to the confusion. (Google Translate sometimes does it wrong.)

FYI, Ace Combat Colonel, the Soull Of Darkness guy is called Darkness-Of-Enigma in this forum. (I do know his YSP username though :mrgreen: )

If all they want to do is get together a package of high detail aircraft that is fine.But if the try to add Soji's executables to the package with out his permission that is not fine.And what is even worse is IF they try to market it as their work in some way, that is ILLEGAL and ACTIONABLE! But lets hope we are all just jumping at shadows here.

To be exact, as you can see, Darkness-of-Enigma do A LOT of High Detailed aircraft for YS. I asked him if i could place them into ACYS and he said yes, if i'd give credits and not post the aircrafts as mine, and that's NOT WHAT I'M DOING! And he do badass addons so yeah...

And as you can see up here, i'll not post any executable file, but i'll think about doing an Setup file (you know, these ones that install games or even packages for games and etc.)

It's perfectly fine to create an installer for the pack, just not for YSF. It'd have to install to an existing install of YS to remain legal...

Surprised that this topic isn't locked. Not implying anything, though... :mrgreen:

I'll second this. There are a lot of AC aircraft out there (a few really good ones at that) but they are mostly scattered around the Internet. This can (hopefully) help in improving this situation.

And don't double post. Edit button is there for a reason...

Rename this. The title is confusing and mis-leading.

yeah to recap wha t the others say: anything goes as long as the ysf exes aren't involved.

For example, wic works was packed as an exe (and porely organised as it's not in the user folder mind...) but none the less, was fine.

My advice is make a zip with tthe folders ready to drop and add to the ysflight root directory, makes it seem a lot less sus. (not as virus prone)

I think this would be quite simple due to the fact that the game is actually just unzipped to a directory of your choosings, a basic program could probably be written to allow that xD. EDIT: (or even a basic VB macro :P)
