I'm getting started now on balancing and I can see it will be one of the tougher aspects of creating this mod - keeping the game challenging and the party not overpowered. I'm trying to stay true to the timeline, but it means getting access to pretty powerful generals early on in the game. We'll see how it goes! Thanks for the comment :)

At least you didn't replace Yue Jin and Zang Ba with Dian Wei and Xu Huang!

Can't wait to get some feedback! Especially from you "old masters" hehe, I really enjoyed the Rise of Lu Bu and Flames of Wu mods!

I think I will have a preliminary release ready in 2 months or so, if anyone is interesting in play testing an early copy. Working now on balancing weapons, armor, tactics, battles, and generals. It's kind of slow going and certainly not the most fun part of making the mod.

Here's a few more screenshots!

The battle for Chang'An is our first run-in with Jia Xu...

One of the big appeals for me about DOAE is the art style of the original portraits. I first played this game I guess 30 years ago on the NES and when I rediscovered it so much later, the portraits were what I remembered most. So not that I have the artistic talent to create new portraits from scratch anyway, but in the mod I'll be keeping the traditional art style and repurposing from DOAE, DOAE2 etc with some minor Photoshopping to change background, expressions etc. Here we have long hair Cao Cao, who may or may not get a bit of a trim to his stats lol.

Image

The boastful Du Yu provides an example of some of the Photoshop work I'm doing to repurpose original portraits... DOAE1 Lu Bu got a hair cut and a different sneer. I really enjoyed going through the Romance of the Three Kingdoms text to look for dialog and battle taunts hehe.

One more screenshot from the field. This is Jieting.

Thanks again for the comments!
