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)
Currently I gave them all away over xmas. So next time I have some... I will. Thanks.
Hah good one, I think more people should take advantage of this. I never actually thought of giving away keys on moddb before. Probably because very few people follow me.
This is really turning out well. Glad to see a small group working on doing some proper research. It's not easy pitching a successful space game on kickstarter lately, seeing as everyone is jumping on that bandwagon.
But you guys do have some things that appeal to me. I'd rather support you than SC for instance, they don't need the financing as badly as you talented blokes do in any case.
Wish you all the best of luck and hopefully a very exciting 2015.
Sounds good, if you guys need any help with art assets, more directly concerning things like logos, maybe I can be of help.
Other wise, seems like it is all going really well.
Looking good old man.
It could be a mutant based off the Freedom fanfiction. Which has a load of unique mutants in it's lore. This one, and the scene looks like the naked wolf beasts that kept attacking two guys while they were feeling through what sounded like an old trench.
There was also another guy who stayed hidden above the trench and kept killing some of the muties with a knife. Real bad *** character that one.
In Reborn the enemy NPC's sometimes forfeit a fight and go down on their knees with their hands behind their head. I'm sure that would be possible in COC as well.
Nit picky is good! Your models make sense, and they are canon. Which is what matters in my mind.
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.
I like the idea!
I have a cracked version and the legal version, only reason why I keep both? I don't have internet at my home and sometimes the original client doesn't allow me to play offline.
Also best of luck to Mojang.
Wow that's epic!
These are actually all unique textures if you look carefully. And there's no copyright theft going on here. It's all legal and fine.
The only thing that gets me is... the speakers. :|
Mine looks very differnt, but I've got one 23" screen and one 27" screen. Get yourself the Microsoft x4 keyboard and x3 mouse and you would be really happy.
That looks pretty good, I like the fact that the size of the map is increased! We all love exploring. One problem though, I find it a little annoying that there's so many cars just lying around in fields not close to any kind of road.
Now that looks ineteresting! Awesome work guys.
AH okay, well I come from South Africa. Which is a mish mash of a bunch of different cultures. It's crazy. So are you studying or something?
Congratulations! It's completely deserved.
Ah sweet! Looks awesome guys.
Old glass block stays as is and is still available in the game.
How about maybe using a word from a different language? Don't let yourself be restricted to certain things... think maybe latin or greek? They both have nice names for certain things.
Wow great work guys!
Interesting concepts... The Aros one's look like they were the wrong resolution when uploaded, as they look a little pixelated on my screen.
It doesn't suck, it's his right to do so. This is after all his property so he can do with it as he wants. I enjoy seeing notch do these things, he's one of the few keeping minecraft original atmosphere and not changing it. :)
Sweet, keep at it guys!
Yeah they are pretty small in vanilla, yet you have to unload a lot of bullets into them.
Very informative. Well done!
I'm following this... with a close eye :)
Yeah she looks like a real manly woman! Where's her beard? :D I love it dude well done!
Sweet! Awesome job Beac!
Looking forward to the lite version! Been silently hoping you'd release one as my computer enjoys smaller resolution textures more :)
I like the sound of this! Adds to the atmosphere. I think it's perfect for a underground map though because it has sounds that sound like pipes.
I am so amped about this! :D Go ahead, make my day ;)
That looks fantastic, well done! It actually came out way better then I thought it would. I have my own ideas about how to change the interface in Stalker in some ways... but it'll take a lot of coding to get it to look like I want it to. Great job guys!
Lots of gloss going on here, I think if you can take away all that gloss it'll look really awesome, love the bump map idea though!
Keep going at it! Looks decent so far.
I think the blood and radiation sign looks too clean and new. Also from a designer's point of view you should darken everything in the image except for the artifact, so it attracts more attention. That's just two things I would do. Otherwise a good job.
That's not the suit's color! It's the lighting of the fruit anomaly he's standing close to...
You know, it would be really nice if someone tried to put the woodpecker radar into the game, it'll make for a couple of fun missions. I don't know why it hasn't been added into the game, it's also inside the zone right?
What is a bar without music? :) I'm pretty sure they'll have such nice music there you'll feel like dancing with a snork!
Aren't I just the lucky one for finishing school back in 2005... Life can be so unfair :P
Nice work guys! Holding thumbs for you! Wish you guys best of luck.
Is this like based on the Duga-3 woodpecker antenna in real life?
Yeah you really seem to like dark sttings, but I have to say it sure adds to the game, your in game shots look amazing for SHOC!
Yeah making it optional sounds like a good plan. Just to make it easier for everyone. :)
This mod is really Epic. You guys are just insanely awesome... wait aren't you a lone wolf? Just one guy doing this. Well I'm seriously impressed. Wonderful work and glad to know you are keeping this game alive, a true gem that just didn't cut it at first but now thanks to you... it's just so much more fun! :D
That jet is absolutely insane in game! The fastest you get and it totally kicks ***.
I remember this from like a year ago, such a awesome piece of software! Ever thought of incorperating this into google earth? Just a thought...
Trust me this game rocks! We recently had a decent sized lan here with about 300 people. So we showed them Alien Arena and soon almost everyone was playing it for a whole weekend.
I like the idea that this game is meant to be played in static lighting. I know you have recently started working on full dynamic lighting but this looks great!
Great work guys. Keep it up!
Sounds pretty awesome! Soon you guys will have a large following for fans!
Oh right, thanks! Hahaha I am so blind.
Where is the link for CSS?
Damn... South-Africa is too far away. *Bangs head against wall* I hope you guys enjoy it. I love camping this really does suck. Damn could have shown you how africans have a BBQ. (Scary stuff, remember to keep the fire brigade on stand by)
Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! *high pitched girly scream* (Imagine one of those fan girls at a live show where a well known band is playing) I've really been waiting for this, checking my inbox daily for it! You guys rock! Woohoo!
My dear friend I'm sorry to say that all this mech can do is blow up pretty balloons and bark at neighbours... It has the personality of a loving pet dog named Fluffy and will never ever step on your feet! ROFL
This game is my favorite racing game ever! I love the whole realism and the cars all handle superbly in a very good looking game. This game had a whole bunch of vehicles and a very nice yet limited 'paintjob' customizer.
I still play it every now and then!
I also get that glitch all the time!
Yeah that snork is always in that bathroom. Sometimes I don't find him there though, so I chuck a couple of grenades in there and see if that wakes him.
Oh my gawd! Oh my gawd! Oh my gawd! I need this! I need to inject some classic stalker action into my system again! This is my kind of drug!
Dude awesome work! I always had this feeling that the UT3 menu was missing some stuff, and now it is absolutely kick ***! Nice work man! Let us know what your next projects are!
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.
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 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.
Great idea, not everyone here can afford performance pcs. Look at me, I'm still sporting a 775 system.
People who are dyslexic would care!
I like it! Guys these "3D" textures are really nice.
Here we see the local Zone pimp coming to collect his bill. What happens in the zone, stays in the zone.
Amazing dude! Keep it up.
Any other ideas for the mod? Yeah I see that the textures are looking great, 1024 x 1024 is usually good enough, it's almost 1080p after all. Are you keeping the textures at 300dpi or what?
Hey Ket, your new textures and detail looks awesome. Some great work you're doing. I haven't checked it out in a while so I'm a little behind on what's going on with your mod, any new news you'd like to share?
How could we ever forget you guys. Just look at those pictures! Orgasmically awesome.
Changing the intervals to what?
Sounds good to me otherwise, this is the new blowout you'll use right? Or are you explaining the one already in use?
He looks super excited mate!
Woohoo! Awesome... all maps are finished! :D Yeah! September... I hope.
Why is he aiming it more or less at my car?
Nice to see some photos! It seems like you guys have some interesting ideas for marketing. What is your goal with these tactics though?
AH I see! Now that brings me to Eveochron mercenary. Have you perhaps played that game? For a one person development team it is very ambitious. It has some really neat ideas with ship customization.
Either way, we get our inspiration from many places and many things around us. I'm going to try my best to keep following you guys and see how this all develops.
This is looking great. You seem to have a very devoted team. I have high hopes for this game.
Oh nice. I wish they offered things like that in our country.
I can understand the usage of royalty free resources. We all do it. Looking forward to hearing about the space stations, are you planning on implementing the algorithms in other parts of the game as well? I.E Capitol size ships maybe?
Is that the older X-52 or the newer one? Either way I am quite jealous. I have a FLY 5 and that's about as close as I will ever get to flying a hotas.
Regarding the game, this is looking good. I like what the space station looks like. What are your plans regarding the design of space stations?
I remember the old cinematic mods, maybe one day I will give it a try again. What version are you using here?
Okay, right click on debugview.exe. Select Properties > Security > Advanced, check that system has full control under permissions tab. And possibly also your current logged in user account. Then open Debugview again and try again. Other wise send me a PM so we can try some alternatives.
Not all capturing capabilities are active then. Check that it is also running in administrative mode.
That could either be steam's fmapo.dll or something like it... So I guess it's not helpful.
It's a microsoft app. Just google it: debugview. Download it, set it to run as administrator. Open debugview.exe and then under the capture menu make sure capture global win32 is checked and also verbose output, pass through and capture events.
So now keep it open. Run COP and check what debugview logs as you are running the game. It will probably capture a lot of windows processes as well so just find a common pattern related to COP. Then get back to me! Maybe we can sort out this crap.
What does debugview log when you run the game?
That sun is crazy! Seems like this is turning into something very exciting!
Man that ship looks great. Loving the gritty look. And then the horizon, holy heck that's some amazing lighting.
Might be a nice idea to look at Elite: Dangerous for some ideas. Just with the cockpit mesh. I like your cockpit screen a lot, seems like a lot of thought has gone into it.
This was mostly filmed with a remote controlled drone... The original team went there recently yeah
If it's the same engine as used in FC3 then yes. You'll have to edit some text file in the game's directory. Just google it.
But if your post effects are the cause, then there is probably a bigger problem, directly related to either drivers or your GPU.
What's your hardware specs? This looks peculiar.
I have the exact same problem with Just Cause 2, and the artifacts stay even after the game is closed. Only once I restart the GPU service does the problem stop.
So in my case it's driver issues.
But there could be some other issues such as the memory chips on your GPU are getting too hot.
Maybe the cooling is just not sufficient on your GPU.
It could even just be dirt that's collecting in your cooler, causing airflow problems.
If it's a new GPU then it could be a factory issue. In which case an RMA might just save you.
True. I hope they all got to enjoy it.
It's not even available in my country. So no thanks. Pity, but seems like it's also a game that's dying a slow death.
Granted this mod is probably good, this UI however is terrible. Absolutely terrible.
I would hope so. Other wise how do people fly planes?
Ceramic plates inserted into the armor? So Duty paints the material above the ceramic plates for aesthetic's sake...
That's my guess.
Ah very nice! Will keep an eye out for it.
Nope never. Got a link or something to a possible image?
He looks quite sad to me...
There are a couple more images on my profile page.
Dude you have way too much time on your hands :) Meanwhile I'm trying my luck with a bit of modding COP... and it's been one hell of an adventure.
You are spoiled!
Logo is nice, lens flare is not.
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.
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.
You having fun lately? :P
Take your time, and best of luck.
Wow, I hope you get passed all the problems. I'm currently having access violations with something I'm working on, memory leaks are also hidden somewhere in this horrific coding.
What file format is it? It should be pretty easy to take out the black. Use your wand tool. Just select all the black and press delete on your keyboard.
Eeeeeeek! I want it too.
This is an absolutely epic game! I would recommend it to anyone... lots of puzzle fun.
Do a clean reinstall
might even be a corrupt profile / save file.
Good to know, thanks for making that clear. How far is the progress?
Oh sweet, while you've been busy I've even started playing around with modding the game. Trying to implement a 3D UI and Inventory, PDA and the likes.
Wow guys! That's a really nice mod. Congratulations and best of luck until the release!
Nice update dude, this explains a lot. Good luck with it, and keep us posted! I'm so looking forward to playing a nice localized amk game.
Ah nice! Red Forest is loads of fun to play.
Hey dude, could you share with me if you have any future plans with modding s.t.a.l.k.e.r? Ever thought of modding out Shoc? I want to start.
Ah that looks really nice!
Ah sweet! Great update guys!
Good to know! Best of luck with getting it all going smoothly!
Oh my gosh... sounds awesome! Keep it up guys.
FN 2000 for the WIN! I love that gun. Which means she's spec ops of some sort... o.O
Keep it up boys!
I like the skin, well done on the achievement system.
Sweet, keep up the good work!
Your graphics is messed up. Too high gauss.
Summer? Where I am it's winter! And at this time of the year the lions are roaring all night long. It's crazy. But in any case, this mod is amazing and the work you guys have done so far are just insane. With the new addition of a scripter you guys will sure as hell kick a lot of ***!
Good luck with the scripting in way of the wolf!
Good luck! Here's to hoping you get into college! Now that's where most people's lives really start. Trust me, it's a lot of fun. After 4 years of studying and now working for the last 3 years... I still miss those days.
Wow that's pretty insane, you guys seem to be working on a pretty interesting project!
Damn this looks really awesome!
Sweet! Keep us updated please!
Sweet, that's good news guys! Really looking forward to this! Africa is in dire need of more games and the only place we can find games is online! So bring it on! :D
Oh interesting... found my copy of clear sky the other day. Still decidign whether I want to reinstall it. Making time for gaming is getting harder and harder!
Wow this looks insanely awesome! Love Vega Strike!
Awesome! I'm so looking forward to this!
Insanity i tell you! Sweet work guys.
The orange looks a bit off... Otherwise I think it looks great.
Does it contain a read me with more details about changes and bugfixes or what-not?
Awesome work, maybe now I can buy it too! South Africa always lags behind a bit. I've been following you guys since the days before alpha and now's my chance!
Now this looks interesting, the picture is really nice.
Well best of luck dude.
This is just absolutely epic!
That's kind of lame...
Or when your filters were very dirty and needed replacing.
Sweet update! Looks really good. Keep it up guys!
With some mods, yeah sure. Sometimes I find it lacking a bit though.
Heh this was such a stupid thing. I think it might be a bug with ATI cards. In any case it's all over now, got a new spanking pc to boost this game. Playing with SGM 1.7 mod.
Really enjoy this military skin.
Duga 'woodpecker' ????
Holy crap that's amazing! Well done guys. I'm totally impressed! And sold.
Oh this looks interesting! Keep us updated.
I never knew particles could actually be this dynamic.
Maybe it's not meant as a joke but more for the iconic theme that is April fools... Just to entice us you know.
I like the sounds :)
Damn if only I had the time. I'm currently Alpha tester at a certain company *not allowed to say who* and I also manage like 6 projects at the same time. But I hope you guys find someone and soon. :)
Me like! :D
Sounds pretty good to me. I enjoyed the bloom feature also, I think it adds more to a game if used correctly. That's all I have to say about that for now though.
This is absolutely amazing!
Best of luck guys! Here in South-Africa the UDK is starting to pick up and more people are developing new builds of everything. Your game looks epic.
I've been thinking about that also. The gasmasks they already have available in certain mods are kind of lame in a sense. You can clearly see the border and I'm pretty sure human's can't see tha edge of a gasmask that clearly. I think making them 'bigger' in a sense is a great idea!
M14! FTW, this will make this game interesting...
Looks good dude!
Holy punch me in the nuts! Only in Stalker can you be THIS agile!
Nice work guys, keep it up!
Awesome work guys, I like it so far!
Well that's your bad!
Gosh it looks really good guys!
Well where is it then?
I always love exploring this building.
Oh we all know this scene! Always a memorable moment.
This looks... uhm... SEXY!
I've always liked this photo, what's the radioactive icon there... oh wait it's the cursor! :D Nice work.
Agreed! First thing that came to mind to me also.
Wow pretty well done!
You can use this in a design...
Oh this looks awesome! Almost looks like a bunch of balls fell from space. Maybe like huge snowflakes. Radioactive snowflakes have the same mass as Pseudogiant! XD
Great job! It's looking really nice.
Nice, thanks for this. I agree with you on these mods!
Wow this almost looks like a photo! Amazing work.
I'm so looking forward to this update. I hope our stupid slow south-african lines will hold for me to download it!
I love this! Looks really cool. You are really making a awesome mod!
This looks like a really nice mod. What else do you have in mind for it in the near future?
I've been tracking this game. I really want to play it some day! :)
Keep it up!
A couple of grammar mistakes but still this is handy for someone like me who is thinking about modding stalker a bit. So thanks!
Don't we all?
Freedom base FTW! I always like this area... :)
Nice and dark!
Love the textures! Wonderful job guys!
This skin kind of looks too 'new' for me. I like the one used in Complete on SHOC... maybe you guys should look into it. Just a thought. Otherwise it's not a bad skin.
This is a really nice skin!
Ah this is awesome! Been waiting for this for a while! Thanks so much Beacon. I've really wanted a English tutorial for a while now.
Here's something random for you guys. I can more or less understand what you were talking about there. And I don't speak Netherlands at all. My home language is Afrikaans, which is very close to your language actually. :P
This looks really stunning, only now it looks a lot like Africa to me.
It says the name right there: Hover MLRS by PizzaAtomica... Reading glasses anyone?
Now this is an amazing shot! Wow, wonderful job guys! *applause*
When I saw this screenshot the first thing that came to mind was DM-Inferno... nice jobs guys!
It's one of the minecraft map viewers you can download, but yeah the first time I saw the application I thought the same thing.
Agreed! I would really like that too! *eager*
So are you pausing your work on this then and taking a break? Or what exactly? How far is it from finished?
Great work so far by the way.
Pretty cool. Nice going, I hope you guys the best of luck in this project.
Oh I like this! So tell me what have you done here? Larger texture resolutions and what else?
Sounds good! You've been gone for a while huh?
Now that looks very sleek and fast... and it looks like it can punch some holes.
Although the wheels dont really fit. It depends on how big the ship is though.
I get what you mean, but the 50m hack looks perfect to me.
Nice work guys, these pics look really nice. I want to ask if you could, if you feel like it, release a update article? Not really going into details about the mod itself, but telling us your thoughts on the mods and letting us know who is working on it currently? I'd like to find out more about the team and the people behind this.
This looks really sweet! Pixel candy for my eyes. Nice work guys. I think the banshee looks perfect. Explosions look awesome and you even have some 'weather' effects in there! NICE!
This reminds me of a room I remember in Quake4, in that bunker stage. Although this does look 1 000 000 times better! :D
Wow nice skybox there! And the forestry looks really epic and in my opninion true to the area. Guys I cant stress enough how excited I am about this mod, this is the one mod I stay on moddb for!
Interesting! We should put your map on a server somewhere...
Wow guys I hope you guys find these members. Unfortunately all I am proficient in is Graphics Designing. I'm a professional designer. Haha no knowledge in game designing, except for UT 1999! Hahaha yeah old school guy here! Back on track, hope you guys find some worth teammates.
Awesome job! Wish I had this game still. I will find it and play this again! With your patch!
Hi Devotus, sounds awesome! :D So I wanted to ask you as I don't really know CSS that well. I downloaded you map and copied it into cstrike folder. But it only loads haflway and then the game crashes. Anything I should have done?
Sounds like a great plan! Good luck guys! I'll be keeping a close eye on updates.
It's a helicopter testing vehicle! Like the crash dummies you get, why does it make me think of that? So I guess the only way it can hurt you is by flying into you...
Famas style assault rifle? Or is it a P90? Whatever the make, it looks kick ***... Except, wait! Is that what I think it is? Is that really a majestic 12 soldier, with a mother of a lazer gatling gun? :O OMG!
Those rifles were pretty good in that game, so yeah! But look at that freaking mech thing, what's the story behind that? New age police cruiser?
It's Full Metal Alchamist! Deus Ex style! FTW!
Nice gun! This sort of reminds me of that one large room in Deus Ex II - Invisible War.
Again with the medic 'stations' I love how this looks, and that the medic has a bald head, does that make him one of those insane professors?
"I will augment you now! Give you the power of lightning!" (Evil laugh starts now!)
This looks sweet! I want this game so badly!
Good luck with your work on those games dude. Wish you guys the best of luck!
Nicely done guys! Good story.
Cattle prod! FTW
I love this pic! Looks so awesome! WELL DONE GUYS, I believe this will be a epic mod!
Nice job! Makes me want to play the game again so badly!
I wish I could see more of this unit, what unit is it? I guess it's the shipyard thingy right? (Been a while since I've played the game)
Nice work, I like the shape guys.
I think they do yeah, I love the color theme!
Shot dude, true about this site being so full of dead mods.
So how about putting me up? I just got uncapped internet and I love testing mods for Stalker. Also your mods looks very interesting.
I could send you a nice detailed review of the mod and what I thought. And even some screenshots if you want. :P
Wow seriously I would never have guessed! My respect for this mod is growing by the second! Looks freaking awesome!
Hey dude! A south-African S.ta.l.k.e.r fan! This is rare! I don't know anyone else who plays this games with as much passion as I do. So dude let me know if you have any problems I might be able to help you?
Why dont you have any comments? Good game I like it! Keep it up and I'll advertise it for you free! (You know just on some blogs and stuff)
I remember this as the first ship you get. Am I right here? Wow I liked this game so much!
