Darkraze is a tactical FPS project in development, created by a two man team named Renegrad Studios. We are planning to implement unique and team-based features, and tactics to turn the tide of the battle. There will be a variety of weapons and heavy customization to fit your style. The use of various technological gadgets will aide you through the battle and have specific specializations to support your team. Keep in mind that what is currently being shown is NOT final.

1 comment by DaBossTMR on Sep 8th, 2014

Welcome to the sixth (bot-dev) week of development in Darkraze!

This week, we have mainly shifted gears towards a very complex feature: bots with AI. This means that you can practice with AI while you wait for someone to join to take its place, or just to populate servers to have some more fun. All of the bot settings, such as difficulty, will soon be customizable within the server settings.

Very early AI demonstration. Once within sight, he will attempt to follow and shoot the closest target.

In addition to this, we have rewritten a portion of the leaderboard and lobby code to support these bots. Bots will be classified by their clan tag '[BOT]'

15 bots displayed within the lobby. They will all have random names (codenames and real names)

The developer console also has an auto-complete feature, mainly to speed up the process of executing commands for developers. You can press the enter key to execute that suggested command, or press spacebar if there are additional parameters:

Additional changes:

  • Fixed a bug where pressing space-bar while crouched under an object will make you stand up and ignore collision.
  • Rewritten a lot of under-the-hood net-code to support bots and storing their statistics on the server.
  • Adjusted the size of the full-screen HUD to not clip the viewport.
  • Heavily reduced HUD sway.
  • Minor fixes and improvements

The bots took up most of the week, so I apologize if there are too little changes. School is just beginning to heat up so within a few weeks, I will start to have less time for development.

Thanks for the support,
Kevin, lead developer of Renegrad Studios

I will try to push support with Linux since I don't have many people that I know who have Linux. Sent you a message!

Sure! More people is always helpful, but testing is not needed at the moment. Sent you a message for more information (trying to at least).
