About Wolfram with 24 comments by XaeroX on Jun 16th, 2012

Wolfram Patch 1.1 Logo

Despite our careful testing of Wolfram before the release, some players reported a certain amount of problems. The most critical was a crash on some systems. We have fixed all the errors found, and added an automated crash report system in case there will be found more problems. Besides we tried to take into consideration complaints about the balance.

So, what's new in Wolfram version 1.1?

  • Added CrashRpt system for automated crash report generation and submission.
  • Added "Level statistics" item to the Controls menu.
  • Flashlight range increased.
  • MP-40 bullet damage increased.
  • Luger reload time decreased.
  • MG-42 accuracy increased a bit in an IronSight mode for a crouched player.
  • Fixed bug with software sound which led to a crash.
  • Fixed bug with "Bloodlust" achievement, when it was enough to kill 3 enemies instead of 50.
  • Fixed a minor problem in a loopback network code.
  • Ragdoll intertia decreased.
US|EU Wolfram Patch 1.1 (English Version)
RU Wolfram Patch 1.1 (Russian Version)

Please note that the patch 1.1 must be installed over the proper release version. English patch is for US and European versions; russian patch is for the Russian version.

For those who still doubt whether to download and play Wolfram, we publish several new screenshots from E1M3 and E1M6 levels. Have you got psyched already?

Инструменты будут доступны вместе с выходом dev-версии движка. Пока и движок, и инструменты в разработке.

Hey, Quick Question - Do you have plans to license out or distribute the Volitile 3D II Engine?

Just curious :)

Yes, when it is done. But, generally speaking, it is still under development.

>Embedded Lua script language for game logic
Выносите ВСЮ игровую логику в скрипты, если хотите настоящей популярности. Где бы сейчас были Юнити у УДК, если бы в них разработка велась на плюсах?
Тем более, если ядро движка будет закрытым. Для геймпленой логики производительность полюсов не нужна, а вот потенциальную аудиторию они сильно подсократят.

Кстати, разрешите мне зайти с коронного русского вопроса.
Вы, собственно, кто такой?

А в чём, вы считаете, преимущества скриптов перед кодом на С или С++? Ну, кроме того, что для них не надо ставить специальные компиляторы (можно использовать QuakeC или обычный C, компилируемый в байткод).

Cтоп, это вы сами написали движок?

Он не писал движок. Он его наворовал из разных открытых проектов. А чтобы вопросов не было, поставил проприетарную лицензию. Это до первого разбирательства, которое неизбежно будет с первым серьезным проектом. Впрочем, в возможности этого - большие сомнения, так как фирмам не нужен серый "минированный" код.
