NNK Released!

We've done it! NNK has been officially released to the public! We're very pleased and we can't wait to see see you guys in-game! Download Links can be found at the bottom of this post!

Official Release

The Release Party was a huge success! We had even more listeners than our appearance on Podcast 17! We'd like to thank everyone who joined us in IRC and those who listened in on our Shoutcast! If you missed the Release Party and want to catch up on what happened JoeJustJoe was kind enough to keep notes which you can read here. Much thanks Joe!

If you're new to NNK, which all of you are, there is a great Tutorial Mode that teaches you all you need to know to prepare for battle! Simply click create server, set the map to nnk_academy, and change the game mode to tutorial. This will guide you through the basics of controlling your ninja and is highly recommended.

As with any new game, there is bound to be a few issues that we didn't catch. One of the issues you may run into is having your character stuck at times. If you find yourself in a situation like this, press the B key or open your console with the ~ key and type in unstuck. This will move your character away from potential sticky situations. We're going to work on getting you guys a patch as soon as possible. In the mean time if you run into any trouble please post in our Help Forum to find ways to resolve your issue.

Download it right here!

See you in the servers!

It doesn't have to do with Steam, I had this problem also. I solved it by moving the dll to another folder, this allowed me to start the game at all. Then I went to video options and changed the rendering mode to openGL, then I exited the game and moved the dll back.

If you have legal copy of Half-life then you should be able to get it into Steam just like I did with my Unreal Tournament III. Maybe it was "Activate product on Steam" under games tab in Steam. You have to enter the CD key there i think.

You can't install it into steam with a CD though, it has to download it.

Well I changed the OpenGL to software it keeps crashing I reinstalled it and it still keeps crashing I'm using steam also. And when I tried to join a server using OpenGL it would send me back to the main menu... Help?

TryForceX Jan 10 2010, 7:58pm replied:

like its sends you back to the main menu after you finished loading? if so try to rejoin, its a "client timed out" thing that we have going on, avoiding afk people and stuff.

I've been having a lot of trouble connecting to servers on NNK.

1: Most servers respond fine in the server browser, but when you actually try to connect to them they don't respond at all. They also tend to be the servers that have the lowest ping...

2: So far NNK has frozen up("program is not responding") 3 times at the "parsing server info" stage of connecting.

+1 vote     reply to comment
Dejiko Jan 10 2010, 9:08pm replied:

ok, here are some more problems...

3: Sometimes when I connect to a server I get dropped and this message is in the console:
No detail texture mapping file: maps/nnk_chuninfinals_detail.txt
R_LoadSkys: Couldn't load gfx/env/nnk_dusk_rt.tga
Host_Error: UserMsg: Not Present on Client 22

4: Probably not a problem with the game, but I'll post it anyway just in case: two of the servers up are dropping me with "Illegible server message: svc_bad", which I found to be a problem with my previous router's security firmware.

5: At one point I crashed with the message "fatal error: bad model or beam (no sprite)"

6. Some weird transparent moving "texture" covering the screen in OpenGL mode, tried changing NNK settings like disabling blur, DOF and stuff but didn't work. D3D doesn't work, setting it on makes Client.dll error appear, luckily by removing it from the folder, the game starts and can set back to OpenGL. By not putting it back, the graphics are broken either way.

Radeon 4650, latest driver, Win 7 beta x64.

Uh, i cant play this mod at all, I can launch the game and mess around with the options and stuff (i didn't apply the settings though) but when I try to join or create a server, the entire game just freezes and I have to manually shut it down, i wait for around 8 or 12 minutes on average and it still just sits there frozen, i don't know if its i have to wait a little bit longer or compatibility problems or something else, I don't know, I can tell you that I'm running a windows vista 32 bit if that's any help at all.

I seem to be having very odd lagg problems on most of the maps. Seems odd to me considering the games I can play with no issues. It also took me a bit to even be capable of joining a server and staying in it. ( Kept getting kicked for a while. )

Hosing my own server lagg is still there.

Hate to say it but I think this mod should have been cooked a bit more before it was taken out of the oven sort-of-speak..

Gameplay feels solid when playing, however, freezing during loading and parsing (I'm a patient guy and that wasn't a simple long loading-time) as well as untimely disconnects (asking if router ports are properly configured, which they are, and this being only game that ever had any problems with said router) as well as rare times where establishing connection to some servers seem to be a problem too.

But gameplay was good.
