DaggerXL is a Daggerfall Engine Recreation for Modern Operating Systems and hardware. It is just in the beginning stages of development but will ultimately fully emulate the game of Daggerfall and then optionally enhance it by refining existing features and adding new gameplay elements that were originally intended. The enhancements will include things like being able to dock your ship in a town with docks, sailing your ship, proper shape changing spells, being able to store items in your house (in the furniture) and more. The game will make use of hardware acceleration providing higher resolutions, color depth, greatly improved visibility, better texture filtering, enhanced performance and more. In addition, like my current project DarkXL [ http://www.df-21.net/phpbb/viewforum.php?f=7 ] is working towards – there will be greatly improved modding and editing support.
DaggerXL is/will be just an engine, you need the original game data to play. I will not distribute any Daggerfall assets or knowingly provide information on obtaining free copies of the game. This is a legal project, I do not intent to step on Bethesda’s toes or violate their copyrights.
This blog will provide a diary of the DaggerXL development process and will eventually host the software itself.
