You wake up in a dark alley, not knowing anything. What has happened anyway? You struggle after the truth and answers. Answers you want to know in the darkness and fear, which makes your heartbeat race like violent blows against your head. Where do "they" come from? What has happened? Are you just turning insane? The time is up; you can't stay there reading your smses forever. It's time to head out and find the answers. Cry of Fear is a singleplayer modification of Half-Life 1 which brings you the horror you've always been afraid of. It's a total conversion of Half-Life 1, which means it uses NO Half-Life 1 content or other peoples' files. It's all made exclusively by the developers. It also uses new gaming styles that you will rarely find in Half-Life mods, such as advanced cutscenes and other stuff that will be revealed at a later date.

have you guys tried ssbumpmaps instead? as long as you're using them only on world geometry, they (in my opinion) look a lot better than standard normal maps.

I'm not a tech wiz, but I think I understand what your talking about, maybe. Anyway, looks awesome. I'll play this the minute it comes out. And, question, is this still on the Goldsrc or did you move to Source.

The quality of these textures is insane. Half Life 2's stock textures aren't this good.

It's a realistic looking setting with great lighting. Oh, and I noted the floorstrip on the walls - looking great. Believable. Just waits for some freak behind the corner to rush out and jump in your face.

Damn nice update for the engine!

My suggestions:
Bake the normal map for the tiles, they look kinda flat . Maybe something like this? Cubesmith.com
BTW will you use cube maps with normal maps for dark places? Because the unlight left wall doesn't show any depth.

Are you talking about baking the normal map from a mesh? That would be a lot of work to do that for all (about) 1500 textures in the mod!

Reply Good karma+1 vote

Heh 1500 textures :]
hmm maybe just the important ones like this tite wall ? olney trey textures on the screan so why not add more detail to one? something like this.

The walls use the exact same textures and normal maps. It just looks flat because of the light falloff: the left wall isn't influenced by the light that much, so it doesn't really pop.

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote

You can fake normal maps where the light doesn't reach if you got a global cube map blending with all normal maps or radiosity (dont know is it possible to implement to gold source?)

But the right wall as you can see still looks like simple similar checker bump.
just suggesting unused potential :3.

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote

Implementing support for cube maps, combined with radiosity isn't exactly a trivial matter, especially on an engine this old and when you want it for a simple corridor which you'll walk straight through.

As for the normal maps, they are square tiles. Not everything IRL is chipped or damaged as ****. Putting excessive wear everywhere for no reason at all just looks stupid.
