That's Dr. David Halston (actor Jared Martin) from Knight of the Drones. The facial features are right on, but the hair line and hair color is just a bit off.

I laughed my head off wondering how he was going to fight those 2 wrestlers but i doubt he would employ them since they were her pets.Hr was jealous of them.

For a while I thought that blond guy on the right was one of the bad guys from the episode Knigght Racer:

Devon's face looks great except I think his eyes are too big:

Everything else on Devon looks perfect.

Thank you all again for your criticism and reactions! With all your help I'll be able to make the characters look perfect :good:

Regarding dr. Halston: While looking for a screen to make a texture from, I've searched the entire episode he was in but couldn't find a scene with reasonable lightning. So I took screens from an Incredible Hulk episode he was in, where he had a diffirent haircut. Should be a simple job to fix that!

Well at least it can't get worse than the Davilex characters :lol: (although imo the modeler had the Hoff dead on):

I remembered Dr.Hoffstead best from his other tv show War of the Worlds in the 1980's.His IMDB page has 33 images you can use for better lighting:

SPOILER ALERT

Han,

From left to right, the characters are

Marco Bario - Episode "Killer KITT" - Was one of KITT's software creators that got cheated out of the credit by his co-worker. He can hack into KITT's systems and control him remotely. A skill he will find handy when his newest employer presents him with the remains of KARR.

Cameron Zachary - Episode " A Good Knights Work"- The only living proof outside of Michael's circle that knows Michael Knights true identity is Michael Long. Zachary was the true mastermind behind the events that took place at Comtron in 1982. Cameron would give anything to get revenge on Michael Long, and his new found freedom comes with a cost as he becomes paired with a rebuilt MBS protected Juggernaut with another little extra upgrade we aren't talking about yet....

and last

Dr. David Halston - Episode "Knight of the Drones. Another inmate who has found new freedom in exchange for his talents. He is presented with a state of the art command center with a satellite up link and an entire fleet of drones at his fingertips.

And I'm sure its not a mystery as to who broke these guys out of prison and is using them in a grand scheme to bring down FLAG and rid the world of his doppelganger once and for all. Oh and Garthe is being funded by a terrorist group trying to get their hands on nuclear weapons, but thats all just subplot...distractions, you know the typical Knight Rider formula that we hope we get right :D! So there you have it, the 4 main human bosses of Knight Rider: The Fan Game, and a short teaser/spoiler as to what key they play in our story.

My God... its beautiful! But I have to ask, will it really run on slower computers? How much quality would be sacrificed to run on lower settings?

The art featured in this level (aside from the Knight Rider vehicle meshes) was done by a very talented Level Designer named Michael O. The performance hit on this level is a rather large one, it takes a pretty decent computer (Dual Core Pentium) to run it with all effects on . This level at this detail will most likely only be used in cut scenes and is obviously intended for the final two chapters of the game. The final "playable" version of this level, regrettably wont be this detailed to hit our mark for older computer support.

It's new missions based on our all new story, but we pay respect to the classic episodes. You may find yourself doing similar things from show, like Race for Life is a theme we use a bit where Michael will need to get someone from point A to point B before time runs out. You'll definitely be entering KITT into sabotaged races, you'll rescue damsels in distress and listen to KITT complain about it the whole way, plenty of cool things that are nods the original series to keep you busy in sandbox mode. Our linear story line has more of an adult/serious theme to it (after all its story about revenge), but the game will definitely be full of those classic knight rider moments.

Hi guys,

At the moment you can follow any visual progress on theknightrider.com. As far as the storyline goes, we have a few nods to KR2K, TKR and KR08. The game will eventually end in KR2008, leaving a way to a possible new release on the 2008 series. I can tell you the following, but don't be surprised if some items won't return. We're still finetuning the script, so everything you'll read now is not 100% certain of returning in the actual game.

Maddock will be introduced to the FLAG crew. He is a candidate for Devon's possible replacement, but now just one of his sidekicks who will guide you through an on-foot mission. The arrogant Maddock of course wants to put his own fingerprint on FLAG. He'll get permission to build a new generation KITT (which will become K.R.O. from TKR), for which he hires a younger Charles Graiman. That will give us a possibility to put Jantzen into the story, but the main focus is still on the original series. Mike Traceur's mother will also be in the game, but I can't tell you how yet, because that would be an enormous plot spoiler lol. :mrgreen:

I'm liking the progress of the game, those screenshots are amazing!
And I'm loving the website! As a fellow web designer, it looks great, and love those scrollable content that slides onto the screen. Great stuff!
Any chance you could answer my message i sent you? It's been a while since i've been on here and you never replied :(
