Turtles Fight With Honor!

Howdy folks!  I just finished a full version of my Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle mod.  I had previously released a mini-mod of sorts, but this release will have almost the entire first story arc included, along with a whole passel of TMNT characters, including fan favorites (and personal favorites) Bebop and Rocksteady, but also including Krang and the Fly!

This mod has 9, count them, 9 missions, which will take our half-shelled-heroes from their first encounter with the Foot Clan up to their discovery of a strange and sinister secret hidden below the streets of New York!  Along the way you’ll take command of the green teens as they battle the deadly Foot Clan, face the mechanical menace of Baxter Stockman’s Mousers, struggle against the mutated might of Bebop and Rocksteady, and even cross blades with the mysterious Shredder!

Krang and Baxter aren’t featured as opponents in the campaign itself yet, but they are both included, and you can play as or against them in the Dangeroom if you want to test their metal!

This mod also features the first contribution to the FF community by newcomer Adam Winters.  He has really increased the quality and comprehensiveness of this mod by creating three new voice packs with samples pulled from the original Turtles cartoon.  He’s created packs for Splinter, April, and Shredder, bringing the memorable and excellent voice work of that classic show to life in Freedom Force, and bringing a lot more personality to their respective characters within the game.

We are also lucky enough to get some custom mission music from the multi-talented ow_tiobe_sb!  Now we have some music made especially for the levels of this mod.

So, what are you waiting for?  Take a walk down memory lane, and see if you can keep from smiling when you load this mod and hear a familiar song on the main menu.  Take some time to remember why you loved the Turtles way back when, and why you should definitely still love them now!

Download Now!

Here’s a quick PATCH for some missing textures and an FX.  Just drop this folder into your FFvTTR directory and overwrite all.  (You only needed this if you downloaded the mod before 08/30/11.)

Or you can Check out the Readme!

Look for more Ninja Turtles action coming soon!  The next installment will take the Turtles into the Technodrome to face the cruel alien warlord Krang!  With any luck (and with YOUR help!), it will also see the introduction of a host of new characters, including the Punk Frogs, the Rat King, Metalhead, Leatherhead, and others!

Shell-Tastic Preview Part II

Welcome to the second night of shell-tastic previews Turtle fans!  Tonight we’re skipping ahead to mission #5, where the Turtles meet a foe who needs no introduction. To match action to word,  I will get straight to the good stuff!  Below you’ll find another set of preview shots to whet your appetite for the full release!


Before we get started, why not Visit the scenic sewers, with a stop in at the Turtles’ Lair?

Our mission opens with the Turtles hot on the trail of the mysterious Foot Clan!

Leonardo is anxious to cut them down to size!

But the Turtles find more than they bargained for!

This is no mere robot, but a ninja master!

But the Turtles aren’t without skills of their own

The Shredder strikes and the battle rages!

Uh-oh…this doesn’t look too good for our heroes on the half-shell!

I hope you enjoyed this latest preview!  Stay tuned for even more Turtle action!

Shell-Tastic Previews

Howdy folks!  We’ve had a pretty quiet few weeks here on the Greylands, but I have not been idle.  I’ve been hard at work on Marvel Adventures, but with the new semester starting and several missions and a good deal of work still to do, I decided that it was time to change tacks, which brought me to the TMNT mod sitting almost finished on my hard-drive.  I just recently got a beautiful and shiny new Splinter skin from the ever talented Daglob, who deserves a lot of our gratitude for everything he’s contributed to this mod!  Receiving this skin gave me pretty much everything I needed to release the finished set of seven missions that I’ve been sitting on for quite some time.  However, a new development has convinced me to add two more to that number, which will bring us almost up to the end of the first story arc.  That even, for those who have been following, was the multi-talented Cmdrkoeing agreeing to make, and then making with lightning speed, a skope of the Technodrome!

So, to make a long story short, I decided that I’d use my limited time to go ahead and get a project ready for release, and the good news for you Turtle fans is that the TMNT mod was already pretty close, so it made the cut!  Look for a full release coming soon, and in the meantime I thought I’d do a series of previews, teasing a few of the upcoming missions!

Below you’ll find some snapshots from the third mission of the campaign, where Raphael meets a personal favorite of mine, Casey Jones!

These two get off to a somewhat inauspicious beginning…

Okay, very inauspicious.

What, you’ve never seen a four foot tall humanoid turtle who knows ninjitsu?

However, it isn’t long before these two are brought together by their mutual love of senseless violence…erm, justice, I mean justice!

These punks have no idea what they’re in for…

Casey’s at the bat!

Well folks, I hope you enjoyed this brief preview.  Keep checking back throughout this week to see more, and look out for the full release sometime at the end of the week!
