Avid gamer! South-Africa's gaming scene is mostly focused on western games so games like S.ta.l.k.e.r is GOLD here! (For me at least)
15 FPS on an i5 with that level of detail isn't bad. What GPU do you have?
How did it affect your system? What was your average FPS then? What is your system specs?
That detail is quite nice, personally I do enjoy more peak mountains like these.
Isn't it just so exciting?!
You've got this metal thing on your face...
Hah I wouldn't mind a mod with this in it.
I am loving the look of the vegetation. Cromm is a really talented fellow. Will see if I can get my grubby hands on this soon enough.
Misery is not for me. I might upload it, although I'll probably be creating a "lite" package as I have limited bandwidth...
Holy hell! The thing of nightmares!
I have lost the stalker vibe with this game when they changed to stand alone actually. It looks amazing, but it doesn't look like the stalker universe any more.
This makes me want to upload Lost Alpha screens I took... but alas I must resist!
Maybe change the text color to white.
I am loving your UI, and how you implemented it when using physics within the game. It's really well done.
You guys have something good going here, and I hope you'll be successful in your endeavors.
Dude, if you want it to be realistic there are some minor things to consider. If for instance you spawn in Sid's bunker, then when you join your faction you'll have to find your own way there right? Not teleport there.
Ah sounds good. Base survival was what I had in mind. I guess with the name of Fort Builder comes the inevitable: "When will we be able to recruits NPCs to defend our fort with?"
Any reason for then making it version 2.0? What new things do you guys have in mind? What does the roadmap for this mod look like?
You have no idea, at night lost alpha is insanely tense.
I would like to get my paws on it as well! :D
Dropbox is easier for now, I mean all the testers can see what all the other testers are busy with. While something like JIRA would have been perfect, it's not free.
I wish you guys the best of luck, here's to hoping they keep there fat fingers out of your inspiration juice!
Wow that's awesome! Can't wait for your new beta. I'd love to try and create a game with this modified engine.
Wait what is this?
Ah that's awesome guys! Keep the updates coming. I'm very curious about how the AI is going. Any hick ups so far?
Wow well done guys!
Ah not much, where do you reside?
All of this is just so awesome!
Man that's so cool! I can't wait for the next release!
I still have to try this mod out! But right now I have to wit till next month before I can download anything. And install episode 2 again.
Man that's insane!
I got a 23" IPS too! :D Got it like 3 weeks ago. So insanely awesome. Works wonders for my designing.
Damn that looks really sweet! Well done guys.
Wow now this is really really... boring.
This is pretty well done!
Sweet update guys! Wishing you guys the best of luck! :)
828 my friend, How cold is PE this morning? Well in any case this is good news in the sense that RCOM is getting the attention it deserves! Good luck mate.
Nice this looks pretty well thought out!
This is so awesome!
Indeed, them professional guys make us software testers look l33t!
My gosh this looks like a lot of fun!
That's epic! Take some of your fans with you!
Looks pretty awesome guys. Keep the hard work up!
What's your dA account?
You bastard! I want a 6870 though... don't have your kind of money. Also nerdy AMD fan here :P
Love it! I was thinking of a lot of the doors that can't be opened... opening them and creating some new locations... it'll be a huge project though.
Woodpecker antenna? Duga-13 I think is it's name...
Yeah a good story in stalker is always fun to read! Well done!
This is almost like a bad April fool's joke... Almost. Depends on whether you will use this map or not. It's a nice big map... maybe you can add some features to it.
What about dog from Half Life? I thought you guys were including him. And what happened to the Chaytech Intervention rifle? What about the whole Alice in Wonderland theme you guys were working on? Where is all these items? O_o
Yeah really nice work! *You have earned yourself the internets!*
Bloodsucker *mime* :"This wall is darn heavy!"
Zombie *moron* :"How the hell do you do that?" o.O
It looks... ahhhhhhmazing :P
Funny yet... so appealing
Agreed! This is going to be awesome!
Why isn't he sparkling then? Sparkle sparkle!
This looks like it could be good... tracking
That's a pretty good idea, I like it!
Dude pretty awesome work! Like I've said earlier, you really have a talent for these kind of things.
I love this shot, looks like the map just goes on forever! Nice job guys.
Pretty good so far. I kind of like the text. My problem is I think a lot of people are getting tired of the stalker font and want something fresh. I know I do.
Don't even consider it! JUST DO IT! You won't be disappointed! It's one of the best games out there!
I guess that house will have a new feature to it now, natural entrance.
I like the texture of the gun also. Is it like one from CSS or something?
Yeah I like the gun skin, it's refreshing and looks professional. Same as the rest of this mod. Nice work loner.
Yay! Don't we just love updates like these.
Sweet mother of Thor! That's hot! Well done!
I think it kind of adds to the effect... but what is the reason behind it?
Interesting! Tell us a bit more about this would you?
Same goes for me! This is great news guys! Wish you the best of luck.
Looks pretty interesting!
I like the helmet! If I were you guys I'd try and get some inspiration from certain things. Like I know this is random, but safety gear when riding dirt bikes.
Check out this pic of a cage for instance. Always inspires me: Yamaha-motor.com
Please note, I'm not saying your design is bad, hell I think it look awesome. Just a thought you know.
Gosh a new secret game? I'd love to know about the new features being implemented into minecraft. What happened to the water creep?
Besot of luck Mojang Specifications!
Yeah dude you have some insane skills with grunge style designs.
Exorcism in The zone of Alienation! :D Sweet, where's the priest?
You know what would be the trick to the zoom problem? Just blur the areas around the scope... I'm sure it's possible and easy enough.
What is your computer's specs then?
I think with glow, but with half the glow, that glow is very bright.
This is super awesome!
Gosh this looks sweet! Nice work!
Yeah these ideas are great Beac! What are your thoughts on adding some more mutants? Like the cat and others?
Look at the textures too, this lighting effect makes everything look better, nice work!
Well it's getting there. Wish I still worked in the Unreal Development kit.
Keep going my friend! It's looking good so far, good luck with those bugs.
This is actually the original FN2000 prototype, the one that came out before the model that's now available. I think S.t.a.l.k.e.r is the only game that actually modelled this gun into their game engine. Quite impressive work.
But yes, the normal FN2000 looks better.
Really nice work guys, on the maps, and also on the new weapons. I am really impressed with this mod.
Honestly COD only showed a very small part of the town, this one looks really really nice!
Yay at long last! I've been checking you guys out, and been waiting for this! SO cool. Well done guys!
Really nice job this! Found it by accident. Great job guys.
Sounds awesome! Good to hear from you again.
Nice! *Tears of joy*
Seems to happen to most people. Thoughts like this have crossed my mind... Especially back in the days of UT-1999... I played it so much and built hundreds of maps.
Looks pretty good to me. I'll download it now!
Nice going guys it looks awesome.
Hey there my british brother. So that's some good news dude! I was kind of worried when you went all silent on us. But yeah, it's the only way to get most of the work done.
So please put up a article or a read me of what the mod contains now, or if there's any new things you added since the silence!
SO weapons cant be upgraded anymore... I somehow agree with you on that. It doesn't sound bad. Could you maybe elaborate for us on the next article about this change and why you did it? Looking forward to it!
Customization... It is interesting and some people tend to like it. But if you think about a game such as left4dead, no customizations there BUT they did have those flashlights ducktaped to the barrel of the gun for instance. So maybe it might be a situation where you use anything you can to survive? If you guys want, create a custom gun customization feature.
Otherwise I don't really care. Looking forward to the game.
These sky textures are pretty awesome! You guys are my heroes! lol
Good luck, hope you get to finish the changes.
Looks pretty decent! Good luck guys, I'll be keeping my eye on you guys.
This looks pretty interesting. I've been going through the whole list of games on ModDB's site and there's a couple of games that look pretty cool INCLUDING your game! So I wish you guys all the best.
I enjoyed this game. AWnd the story wasn't THAT bad. And it stayed true to the Prince of Persia lore. Let's keep it at that. Yeah it was dumb not to die, but still the game was FUN! And isn't that what it's all about at the end? Fun, the reason why games were created in the beginning. :)
The Beretta looks too 'clean and new' maybe retexture it?
I sure do dude! Maar eks so gewoont aan engels praat, dis 'n gesukkel om engels te tik of praat deesdae. (Oh by the way I will join your clan)
I agree, very well done! Same with the moon texture! I'm waiting for version 1 then I'l;l go ahead and download it!
I loved this game. Made some crazy *** levels for it... Gosh so long ago!
Wish I knew about this game earlier! Stumbled upon it! I will download it tonight after work and try it out! Looks very decent guys!
Looks like the perfect place I would take my ex to. Get her and the zombie to know eachother while I sit outside and enjoy some Tourist delight! Mmmmmmmm... What a fantasy.
Wow looks pretty unique. I need a new game to play against some friends. I'll send you guys some feedback as soon as I play around with it a bit.
Some hectic work went into this game. I can't wait to see this version. I think the last version I had was 0.4x... and it was so awesome. That was back in 2007!
Yeah! I remembered some guys are actually making mods for this game, like the 3d cockpits, so all of the writing you see on screen is moved to the actual cockpit itself! FTW!
Well it is the first ship you get. If I remember you get a ship named the Leviathon which is massive and quick and has a massive amount of guns on it!
That you can see ;)
You are spoiled!
Logo is nice, lens flare is not.
This is one of the nice reasons to being a network admin at a large company. I backup all my stuff on the company's servers. Even then I still have 6 hard drives in my home pc, and use raid 0 to backup everything I can.
You should write some fiction. I'm really enjoying the way you experience the game. Might try to play it the same way.
Heh, is this going to be some sort of emotional ride as well? Good luck, hope you keep this diary alive! Following you on twitter for now.
Kenya isn't the only place that looks like this. This looks like a area about 5 minutes drive from where I live. She's also only seeing one side of the situation. But I've ranted enough about these things.
If you move your case around a lot then a watercooling system might not be the best idea. Although Corsair's new range is quite sexy. I'd stick to air and just get some nice dust filters in front of your fans.
I see you have a old case, might be a good idea to just get a new case, most of them come with air filters and if the PSU is at the bottom that also helps a lot with dust and heat.
It sure does!
That will stay a secret for now ;)
Funny thing you should mention that, in some cases Lost Alpha is reminding me of Half Life. You can almost pretend you are Gordon Freeman, in the zone. Just like the eater egg from SOC.
Part of the updated engine... but I can tell you now this is not from that engine. This is still the old engine.
You know Predator I wish I could help you with testing this mod. If only I wasn't already working on Lost Alpha. Would be nice for you to have a local tester around eh.
Wine is a good analogy. Even after opening the bottle you still have to wait. Let the wine settle to the same temperature as the room to enjoy the full flavor.
I'll tell you this much: So far from a testing side this mod is looking better then any other mod I've tried out for Stalker. Even if you only take into consideration the amount of new features. Mind boggling! ;)
Actually my real love is Graphics designing and art. But testing games comes close second.
We've also implemented other lovely features and reworked most of the weapons.
You should understand that the sheer amount of testing we have to do is astonishing at the least. Not to mention the new graphics features and hardware implementation. We're trying to bring out a mod that's polished and plays smoothly with a story that would make any stalker proud.
Please just hang in there! We're working around the clock to get this out to you. :)
This could be so damn handy!
Wow that's quite nice.
I'm a software tester by profession, it would be the obvious step for me to join their testing team. ;)
We are testing it without any dev codes enabled. There's a dedicated team behind that.
Trust me, it's really worth the wait. Lots of changes to the game engine.
I know where it is ;)... I've been there.
Meh I'm not there yet... but I'll get there. Tejas watch out! Tonight I'm catching up on you.
Good question, he's one of the many secrets that lie within the zone!
Guys... if only I could tell you what I know! And what I've seen... just wow.
Insider info from GSC themselves points to it being true, but I have faith. So should you guys, something big is coming our way.
