I can't get past the first computer. Whenever I press A it makes me leave the computer. So how am I supposed to type "message" ? x)

First you need to enter a password(was on screen). But yet, what a keyboard layout you have? I have QWERTY, and Q exits from a computer. If you have another layout, I'll change the button to "quit" command. We will post 2 fixes of game soon.

That's it. Please replace existing run3_r.exe file.Fix: Sgw32.ucoz.ru Exit from a computer entering "quit". Another bug is - you must leave the comand string without any spaces at start. It will make a command recognizable be Run3.

i have tried to play the demo but it did crash twice on me when i did shoot the second zombie. still, i would like to address some issues to you. let me start with that it does look rather good for a custom engine. now the issues;

- i thought the intro was quit long with all the different camera's, also was there one time when everything looked like it was made from shine steel, but this was only for about 10 seconds or so.
and one of the text on screen was hard to read because it was white, and there was a white chair behind it what made the text fade away in to the white of the chair.
-the the computer, i didn't know how to get out of it again, so i had to start the game again. have to be honest and didn't read the whole text on screen, so i missed the part of that i needed to text a message like you mentioned in your comment to SloidSnake27.
-the AK47 looked ok, but the pistol looked rather strange when i held it in my hand, it was placed a bit to high so you it looked like the pistol was floating, because there was no hand holding it.
-the zombie animation is rather silly, the walking of it looked very unnatural. but don't get me wrong, i know its very hard to make good character animations. still i thought i should tell you.
-and then there was the second zombie, and as soon as i shot at it the game crashed twice.
also was the text on screen of something like; wow, who is that?!
when i did see the first zombie, that text is really a bit of place. it is not needed to place such a text.

i played it on a dual core 2.3 Ghz with a ENGTX275 video card, windows 7. so i am able to play the game qua hardware.

all in all i liked it but it does need still quit a lot of work.
also, some models did look really good, but others did had some weird textures/skins. for example some kind of computer box, it had buttons on it as a texture, but they where not well lined with the box itself.

Thanks for comment a lot. We will work and post a fix. First note!!! Kill a zombie with AK47, not Pistol. I don't know why, but pistol may be a matter why it crashes(Pistol is doing 10 shots except one!!!).
The chair - I'll put it to the right, and it will not block the text.
"the zombie animation is rather silly," - yes it is:) It's because I have done all animations. I'm not an animation engineer, I'm a coder:]
I'll fix all problems with messages. Pistol will be moved a bit down.

Realy useful addition - type not "quit" command. Correct is "shutdown".

Little emergency fix: Sgw32.ucoz.ru . Fixes chair, crashes with npcs, and "wow, who is that?!" text was fixed. Next fixes will be using the same link!

When I clicked the first computer the game crashed! Will try again to make sure it wasn't a one time mistake!
Also to add, when the opening is happening. When you click the menu button and close it, the hud appears :)

There may be some bugs. "When you click the menu button and close it, the hud appears :) " - yes I know it, it's because GUI class doesn't know that we are showing a cutscene. Ok, thanks.

Sweet cheers for clearing that bit up! and turns out that whenever I go on the computer it crashes. (I have done the fix's). Anything else I should try?

Also, if you ever need anybody just for some testing to find bugs and stuff I'm willing to try and find some for you!

But also keep up the work, the game is looking promising!

Fixed. A problem was with my AIR3 System, it was old build, and haven't worked. Download from a previous link(fix01).

ok, have applied the fixes, now, after leaving the first computer, the play freezes/locks up after one step...

Ok, am now @ 2nd computer and pressing on. Just a suggestion, but after restarting so often it seems the credits could be placed @ the end of the game which would shorten the game start sequence.

The game & engine are a great alternative to those other guys...keep up the good work!

"blur part" - you are talking about radial blur? You can found it's shader in folder run3/shaders and an Ogre compositor script in folder "media/materials/scripts". I don't know how to add it to unreal, but compositors are working on screen, and you can copy an algorithm of radial blur to unreal.

Check out a new fix. My friend Carl Derr made a mistake correcting work on some subtitles, so now they are more recognizable. :)

Weird, when you leave the first room and kill the zombie I find a laptop. I go up to it and the screen is taken up by the big message.
There's no way to make this go away, at first I thought it might be the 'esc' key but all that did is make it so I could walk around and play the game normally with the big message still blocking my view! Then the game crashed.
I'm also confused about what to do with that second computer terminal, in the control room. I entered ahx2012 but nothing happened, I then entered 'password axh1012' and nothing happened still. I then came off it and walked up to another laptop, the big message popped up again and I was forced to exit.

Seems like it has potential but there's little in the sense of any direction and sense, I suppose it's your first demo though. Look forward to seeing more from you guys!

P.S. You might want to get a native English speaker to fix up some of the grammar in your text. The mistakes make your game looks slightly unprofessional. If you want I can help with that, I'd also be happy to beta test.

The problem that you can't exit from the monitor can be solved(it's because of a new patch, it disables exit by one button) - you just need to type "shutdown" and press enter(even if you don't see the text). You must have an EMPTY command line before entering it.(a little bug on my command parser) Leaving computers is just as on an another computers. You must enter "axh2012" in an empty command line. Also, you can use a version without a patch, but forget about pistol weapon(it caused crash while shooting).
