I'm an Unreal Technology Consultant currently located in Newcastle, UK. I studied Computer Games Programming at the University of Derby and Computer Games Development at the University of Central Lancashire. I have an avid interest in game design from a technical perspective and visual effects. In my spare time I enjoy my local live music scene, and a good pint of ale (or six). I currently work for Pitbull on Epic Games' projects, recently worked at Lionhead Studios, shipping Fable: The Journey and co-authored the third volume of the UE3 Mastering Unreal Technologies books.

Actually, it isn't! Keep your eyes peeled over the next couple of months.

The game won't be going through Kickstarter or Greenlight, but may appear in Early Access on Steam.

Reasonably novel use of turning video footage into sprites. I think your release cost may be realistically around three times to high for the product you have though ;)

Hi atsebak - if it's something you're interested in, it's worth exploring. Games development is a pretty difficult industry to get into, so you have to do a lot of groundwork before you get there; and once you are there, the working conditions aren't great and nor is the pay. All that considered, it's a very unique and extremely creative industry to work in, which for me more than makes up for the cons.

It's because the game initially is slow to "connect" players. You don't get it in subsequent rounds of play.

1024 is still on the cards, but I haven't been home now for nearly six weeks due to working at Lionhead. I won't be moving into a new home for few weeks still either.

Annoying for everyone who's waiting, but I'll get there in the end.

You should be able to edit the mod profile, and change the 'developer' to something else, I believe.

I'll get there. I'm pretty busy at the moment. It is actually all up and running (almost) - the snag is that the player is not spawning on a team (and thus ALL the bots shoot at you, and you can never win).

Yeah, it's taken me a while - whilst I do have an old spare machine (which can't run UT3), I simply can't afford the upgrade. Thankfully I should be online again soon.

Just a quick side note - there's going to be a bit of a delay releasing the next version of the mod, as I've managed to blow the motherboard on my main development machine. I may be around two weeks getting up and running again - in any case, if you're watching the mod, you should be notified when I update and add the download!

I don't check this profile all that often (I'm quite busy and have worked on a LOT of mods over the years) - and I don't get notified when someone posts.

Anyway, there is no way to make this work with other mods, it's specifically a heavy rewrite of the Warfare game mode code.

I'd expect it should work with any version of UT3, but it definitely works with the latest (you may need to redo the ini changes once in a while).

It can't work in any kind of multiplayer, because the Unreal Engine supports a maximum of 64 players; it's not something that I can change.
