I code stuff!
Well son of a... I know Biohazard, and seen a bunch of his work before. Great asset to the team I'd say!
Looking good, nice to see a developer also listening to feedback. ;)
Good ol' Valve eh?
The price on Steam is the same? 0_o
Either way, I got this game months back when it first released on Steam, quite the excellent game, I kept playing it on the "Normal" difficulty with Permadeath always on, I died like at least 50 times, having to restart with a new character from scratch each time and in the end beat it after 80 hours.
That's a lot of value for the small price it was then and still is now.
Not everyone will like the game enough to play that much though and without the permadeath you'll like complete it in less than 20 hours.
If you want a challenge though, Dungeons of Dredmor can offer it :)
You're free to think that, but as a fellow developer, I full well understand their desire to commercial, so I assure you that my problem was only with the way they hoped to achieve that, however they seem to have no wrong intentions, only good ones.
Still, there are other ways, harder ways perhaps but I can fully understand why they do it this way, especially after looking at the current gathered donations, since there are plenty of fans that fully support them.
I am in no way part of the "mods go commercial rage" group, if they can gather the required cash to purchase a license, then in my opinion they have every right to sell what they have spent hard work into to make.
I would like to partially apologize for what I said before, I still can't look favorably upon donations, but watching the video mflux posted, I can tell he at least loves the work he's doing and has every intention to keep the fans pleased, so I believe I owe them at least some more respect, they are just trying to do things right, while I do not approve of their ways, they mean well. So I'm sorry for that.
I still have to agree with Darthlex's point on transferring the PHAN thing to kickstarter, I don't see why it's not possible and it seems like a backstab move to me, perhaps it's really not possible but I really don't see why, so you can understand why I feel distrusting about that.
My reply was too big so I sent it to you as a PM instead.
Nice job putting words in my mouth that I never said.
To A. There are other "simple" (as in one gamemode) multiplayer games out there already, me buying or not has nothing to do with that.
To B. Never said a word about price.
To C. Never said a word to do with that either.
My problem is like I said already with their methods, not with them wanting to sell it, I can understand if they want to sell it, I disagree with the way they go about it.
As for my "immature" behaviour, I have all rights to state my opinion, I'm not trying to hinder or hurt them in anyway, all I did was state an opinion and that they lost me as a follower, there is absolutely nothing immature about that.
I'm going to be blunt here, you guys disgust me and I won't be tracking anymore.
Don't let me stop you from doing what you want, I just want you to know my opinion, if there's no one else that feels this way, why you should you care?
Really you're free to do what you want, but I don't approve of your methods and am not interested in a commercial release, so I'll be untracking, maybe that changes by the time you get that far, who knows, currently I don't care about this anymore, so you've lost me.
Now go call your friends and "phans" and hit that - karma button if that makes you feel any better.
Looks great and there's a demo! :D
If I remember this I'll give it a go sometime, meantime I'll be tracking.
Oh wow, how the hell you managed to screw up this badly 0.o
Dark, will the player have something to light the place up?
Someone set us up the bomb!
Quite nice, enemies looking great too.
Well not all my goals are in video's, but it does show how devepopment progresses quite well.
Just be aware, you don't have unlimited arrows :)
But small goals, that's the way to go, achieving smaller goals working towards a bigger goal can be satisfying, while just shooting at a harder to hit goal will merely end up in frustrating failure, hitting targets along the way to it will have that gratification of hitting each target. (or most at least)
I use a similar approach, just take a look at my profile, the recent video's of the last 2 weeks I have there are part of a new hobbyist project, each time a reach a goal I set out(whether that's expirementation or not) I make a video to show it off and it feels good making progress like this.
Well that's your opinion, I haven't played the demo, but my opinion would be it's a perfectly fair price, it looks great, a lot of work went into it and I've seen worse games with crappier looks charge at least double.
I don't think I'll buy it, but it looks good enough to make me want it! But I'm not that into tower defense type games and I'd make me too distracted from my current development progress.
In a way I agree, in another way I don't, it's an alpha, but already the combat looks different from both what the mod was and Mount&Blade.
The animations just have a ... bad look somehow sometimes, but that was mostly before the frantic first person combat bit started then it looked great!
Previously this "sequel" of AoC never really peeked my interest, but this video got my interest, so definitely tracking, keep it up guys!
You ran it over, then catnapped it and did necrophile things with it.
THE PLOT THICKENS.
But seriously, I wonder what these bad things are he mentions, this smells like slander.
Played a bit, not really my type of game, but a nicely made game nonetheless.
A fine price too :D
Nice tracks :D
Keeping an eye on this.
Might be interested, depends on what needs to be done though, hit me with a pm.
Oh and mentioned :D I'm so happy!
And, Alyx mode sounds interesting, looking forward to trying that.
/me whacks danboe with a hammer
I bet it thaught you everything you know!
I'm using it now :D
Got a slightly wrong resolution one, but can't really tell, so /care :D
I agree with what's said here:
It's not so surprising, you do realize Left4Dead had a crazy amount of advertising, probably worth millions, so 300 watchers is actually fairly low, considering the popularity they could be riding off, but clearly don't seem to be so intensely, if they were, they'd have alot more watchers I'd think.
Look at Moddb.com a "mod" which somehow beat the popular mod NeoTokyo in the race of Best Upcoming Mod of 2008.
Shearly by riding off the popularity of such a well known game.
And I may be stepping on toes again here, but hey, it's true, look at the rating, 5.2 out of 164 votes, clearly the majority that bothered to vote after it released thought it wasn't such a great mod after all. So I don't think I'm lying when I say it's popularity was merely riding off Left4Dead to make it to the "top".
Watchers aren't the best indicators of popularity, views and release ratings serve as a better indicator with watchers after that.
I'd say DigiTanks is still in too early a shoes to gain a lot of popularity, but keep working hard and show people what seperates your game from the rest and makes it worth giving it a try, I'm sure the audience will be growing over time.
Great idea Vino, you can however instill personality in a rock...
It even talks and stuff and can transform into a true rock.
When it dies it often says something like: "Magmor dieee" or "Magmor Sleep"
Why did I never hear about this mod before? Great work guys.
Yeah, and it's fat, meows alot and is... fat.
Very nice stuff, keep up the good work :D
Vino, if you added in a video you probably would have gotten this on the front page, regardless of it's "prototype" status.
Ah well, grats on getting something out :D
Nice progression since last time I saw this game, I can't resist to post about this:
"cursing the sun and it's damnable hat"
Is it a tophat? And it's damned indeed.
Go Bekey, go Bekey.
*Takes credit for picture*
2. Interesting thought, but whether that's needed will depend on their usefullness. Still I'll remember that.
I like that ball
Hmmm, I think the games for UDK are actually listed as Games, not Mods, and instead of setting a game that they're a mod for, they set the engine to Unreal Engine 3. You could always send a PM to ModDB staff and they'll help you out :)
But how do you mine wasn't a counter to your counter? :P
He counter joked you for sure!
Thank Dogmeat, he's the one that put that up after my own request months ago!
Hey lads, if I'm correct you're using the same Installer tool I use, I've noticed it just using a static set install path.
Here's how to easily make it dynamically see the correct install path for everyone: Blog.jailbreaksource.com
Totally agree, perks in Jailbreak only make better players better and the most fun ones are only usable in the last one or two rounds.
Nice bekey, you should keep this updated with a list of all GraviNULL entities and what they do whenever new versions come out.
A game called Pirates, Vikings and Knights 2 was released!
Lol, they overlook both the facts that it's a mod and a massive update to an already great mod.
Good luck with the playerbase PVK2.
We'll see, customization may be a better way to go, but depending on how things go I was thinking of classes since the different models could reflect them, but ofcourse it's more important to meet the wishes of the players.
I've had the same several times now, really annoying indeed!
Though my last newspost was on top for about a day when people could view it! Lucky!
Yeah not sure who fixed this, I guess it was the ModDB guys or Wills did something sneaky.
Wills made a new top bar image so I'm gonna send that over to Intense hopefully that'll help.
So it's good now? Aside from the standard topbar area being out of place?
Could you compare this ModDB page with:
The CSS and the other stuff was taken from there basically, maybe it's the hosting I'm using that's the problem.
Anyway compare and let me know if there's anything wrongly sized there.
Afaik it is from Jailbreak though, they have a texture pack free to use assuming you place credits somewhere, so it's possible you've seen it in Dystopia.
There's an intent to have "static anchors" these could be attached to them.
As for the red tube in the middle, that's for DaFatCat to decide. Personally I think it looks good.
That looks amazing, just keep in mind graphics aren't everything!
Good luck with your project, keep it up!
I'd like to see it in game first before I cheer it on too much, I must admit it's a good concept for a weapon that fits the portal theme.
I learned the hard way, with a mod that was supposed to do the same thing, but I ended up wanting to do too much in the first release, so focusing on gameplay is purely my intent now.
be online when I'm playtesting and I shall invite you!
aye I've got plans to someday give it a new model, aim of the first release is to keep it as simple as possible with solid fun gameplay.
After that, anything is possible!
Actually E.Y.E is a game on the Source engine, just like Zeno Clash and Dark Messiah of Might and Magic were, the line is thin, but the main difference is that it's stand-alone and costs money as opposed to mods being free and required the game they are modding.
Here's a silver cookie, be carefull not to chip your teeth!
@Wills: Although there are enough people now that would give you a guest pass that you can last playing Killing Floor for more than a month... assuming you can redeem more than one guest pass ^^
indeed, though different hands for each team would be suhweeeeeet
The answer is the same as the question!
Should be renamed to: NoobAnswers.com xD
And then you will be sad :P
This sounds awesome, I especially like the part of choosing NOT to promote, that's really something interesting, most games just think of progress only in the form of becoming more and more powerfull towards new jobs, rather then become extremely experienced at the same job.
Keep it up guys!
Pre-purchased just now.
Looking forward to trying it :)
lol and the dinosaurs exterminating them are the terminatorsauruses? :D
Looking good, gonna download :)
I wouldn't say it's immposible, but replicating the Portal gun would be immposible to do, it won't end up the same however you look at it and will be considered a cheap copy, if you're making Portal style game with combat, try focusing on making a more a unique type portal weapon that can help make the combat more unique too.
Although you're probably gonna need more then just a mere coder, you'll need a skilled coder who has some experience working with Source.
Also if it's gonna be a HL2 mod, be sure to change the game it mods to HL2 instead of Portal :)
Good luck with it.
wait, so it's a HL2 mod?
Sounds interesting, but afaik portal code is not available? What good would a coder do when he's got no code to work with ^^
Good, now you can work on FragOut!
Keep up the good work ;)
ah that's better, still with the bright light on it it's not as clear as the one from wikipedia.
Btw watching an episode from Leetworld today I noticed on one of the counter strike terrorists head thing looked kinda like that, does that have bump mapping? Might be a nicer example if so, just suggesting ^^
the example there is way better then this one, as I don't see any real differences with this example..
the text is easier to read then wikipedia garbage though :D
lol sounds like me being dutch and not using dutch translations.. GAH I hate translations hehe, even went through hell to reinstall steam and everything just to get rid of translations :D
yeah I'm new to buying stuff online, so the only thing I'm willing to trust is Steam right now because it's such a huge platform, also I would get my games on the steam list right away and could install from any location easily by just logging into my account...
Only made 2 online game purchases so far, both on steam, steam works for me so I'm not going to buy from anywhere else lol
I'd buy this if it was gonna be available on Steam.
Will it be on Steam?
I agree, maybe make something more spacey looking rather then these simple blocks?
Like coloured asteroids or something?
That's an awesome way to do it, I hope the guys at 2K had a good laugh :D
what the hell that's hilarious hahaha!
heh, sorry, but we actually already decided on what it'd be and I don't think we're changing from that since it adds a lil... extra :D
Oh what the hell I'll spoil it, the model is gonna be a Bowlingball, so you can't throw it very far, but you can seriously cause some pain by dropping it on someone's foot! Besides the initial exploding the resulting cluster bowlingballs are obviously launched out at high speed, meaning deadly heavy objects being sent in different directions, to make it even worse the deadly heavy flying objects explode as well... overpowered? nah there's actually a high risk factor of blowing yourself to pieces
(which happened to me while attacking someone who was AFK... the AFK guy lived and I died!)
that would still be a grenade and a not head on attack :P
maybe this is why FragOut worked better for me then my previous project... it has the constraint of only allowing grenade weaponry(not even mines, melee or anything like that, just grenades!).
that's my guess also lol
I believe people that people that pre-ordered or something can get access to everything they are willing to share.
So probably a guy that pre-ordered
you need the play the mod some more, or just get over it that you don't like 2v2
I at first thought the heavy was useless too, but if you use him right he could in some situations be considered more overpowered then the scout, cause his bullet load ability thing is like a BACKSTAB that can be done in the FRONT at all times as well, DEADLY vs a scout, just use cover, get close then run up to his face and unload while pointing straight at him, if you're close enough there's no other aim needed, the burst of bullets can insta kill even the heavy on close range!
I also thought it was stupid the mod is being compared to tf2, the scout in tf2 has a bludy shotgun and piece of **** pistol, the scout in this mod is more like a sniper without the insane speed of the tf2 scout, I actually think the scout is just misnamed, because it's not really a scout, more like a sniper sort of thing as the scout is only good at long range.
So obviously your comparison with tf2 is WRONG, in there a Sniper will own a heavy from most ranges except close range ALWAYS, the scout in Decadence has a LONG RANGE weapon, face it, as a heavy you need to use cover rather then provoke the scout to snipe your ***, get over the fact that it's named a scout and realize it's a sniper, slow, close ranged classes obviously can't win a medium to long range fight against a sniper.
they fixed :) quick response :D
anyway it's not surprising so much hl2/source stuff made it, isn't Source one of the most modding supported engines? More developers seem to start making their games moddable though, but that takes time, so I think we're gonna see many more hl2/source mods before modders spread across more engines.
btw just so you know... I don't think ModDB is biased to hl2, even in editor's choice there were mods chosen from other engines/games, but like I said, Source is huge when it comes to modding, it's unfair to say ModDB is biased, there are just more mods for source and therefore more chance for them to be good one's.
Not to mention most mods can be played by just having 1 source game out of many available, that increases the playerbase of Source mods by ALOT, compared to UT3 for example where only UT3 would allow you to play UT3 mods.
lol, that made me check what games the mods were far, noticed Zombie master is listed as a mod for... zombie master :P
typo there I guess :)
if I understand what you mean correctly I would say it's not really feasible. Maybe while they're up in the air? currently there's just the idle animation there, or was that what you meant?
Anyway the way I understand it 3d animating the existing playermodels can be quite a pain for modellers/animators.
So doubt it though it'd be funny to watch, it shouldn't affect throwing ability's though...
anyway don't count it :P
pfff it's not like I didn't have my things to say, though you did spam.. you spammer!!
Melons and Skulls are both basic grenades, but combine just prefer skulls :P
lol sailboat spray :D
it's a cat.. actually it's a lolcat
PhanracK showed me the original picture, it's defo a cat :)
don't worry that'll all be taken care of, it's still in early stages and at the moment only some(minor) hud and gamemodes things are being taken care off.
faster then me you ment to say Nauz??? :( meany!
and 1.1 sounds good, gogo Tobias!
I like this idea but I already asked Nauz to instead just move the start of the idle farther back so the idle doesn't constantly start after a grenade is down.(you'd to get to see the pervy carresing WAY to much :P)
But maybe Nauz can try your suggestion as well, that's up to him though.
hmm maybe, but probably not. It's actually more like an actual grenade with the shape of a melon and painted like a melon so it doesnt actually have melon.. fruit inside of it but only explosives.
The "first haters" syndrome is present!
Looking good, nice job guys!
Well that's great, I've just heard from Henley on Podcast 17(live now) that you ahd some solid stuff going a few months back, so I'm starting to get pretty hyped into what those bigger plans were he mentioned :P
Like I've said though, some of my concerns and issues may have been "unfair", don't feel too bad about them, if you really have your stuff in order, I'll be trying my best to help with what I can reasonably do(I'm busy with GraviNULL after all). I'm also hoping to learn a few things from you, like how I learn about the potential of using the spoiler function.
Hmmm, that'd be a lot of things initially, even though most of them aren't entirely fair.
Mostly it's how awesome you make the mod seem, without having anything real to show for it(but this annoyance has now turned into interest :P)
The teaser as well, like I already seen someone say here or in the summary area, that could have been "faked" although I don't know why you'd do that, the effort put into this seems legit(then again, those fake tf2 updates looked pretty legit, besides being crazy, this isn't crazy though!)
I suppose there were a few other things, but I feel they're unfair after thinking this through, especially with knowing this little information.
On a more positive note, I've never seen that usage of the clicking of titles to reveal text on ModDB yet, I think that was an awesome way to present a lot of text to the players.
This newspost also made me think about using a similar way to boost popularity, in other words, pretty concept/promotional art, even if it's not really like that in game, it seems to really hype people for some reason.
Any chance I could get in touch with the creator of those pictures?
Lastly, thanks for the congrats, it's not the first public release mind, the alpha came before it, but the beta marks a step where me and the team will likely be churning out some smaller updates faster :)
Well, I've been holding off on replying for quite a while, since in short in some ways I was kinda ticked off about this.
But after giving it some thought and talking with some friends, I feel interested in trying the closed beta regardless and seeing for myself whether some of the "claims" are really true or not.
I've been a very much hobbyist focused modder for the past 2 years now as well as having experimented with making my own game with two different engines so far.
I don't know how you're gonna be selecting candidates though, but I'm used to thinking things through and giving out helpfull constructive critiscm when needed, but I can imagine with a fairly sized development team, you may be more interested in normal games over other developers.
Anyway, that teaser doesn't really tell me anything, but it makes me curious what it is you're hiding after 1 year of work on this, because surely that's not all you've got and that's part of my motivation to try this out, I wish to see what it is that has kept you guys so motivated and confident about this mod.
From it's description:
Music: Serenade of the Autumn Siren by Awake (Rawrthaas) Rawrthaas.newgrounds.com
Tested it, works fine.
Concering weapon/player models... we've got something brewing :P
Check this out:
hehe yeah, it comes out very nice in this video.
Sadly it's not actually in this release yet, but it'll very likely be in the very next update that's gonna be out a week or two after after it's had some... difficulty adjustments :P
That driveway must be pretty high up then :P
Ladies and gentleman, please refrain from crazy acts like such, Hazard mode will provide you with plenty of death experiences.
Thank you for your patience.
If you call that bashing, you haven't seen real bashing...
He's never said anything about it not being up to his standards that I saw, maybe I missed something, if not, stop putting words in other people's mouths.
Maybe DigiTanks isn't that original either, but coming up with something completely new experience is nigh immposible these days, with most of the major and sub-genre's already being thought out. It does have some elements making it stand out from other games similar to it and that's what's important.
DigiTanks at least doesn't take the approach of taking a succesfull recipe and just that over again. I'm not saying L4Q is, since I haven't been following it, but there's plenty of games that do that **** and DigiTanks isn't one of them.
It's not a mod...
And there are people that make a living off this stuff.
He's doing good work, thinking things through more than other developers, he's also doing this alone which is important to keep in mind as well.
:D wall of shame!
Nice hud :D
*Feeds DFC's ego with nuclear waste"
Enjoy the taste of Bekey in the morning!
Keep up the good work :)
I'm not sure I'm too thrilled with a guy and a cat talking about me that way...
Released Jan 1 1990
I think the year is correct since I recall the World Wide Web starting around my year of birth, but I'm not sure :P
late reply: Yep, including commercial use, the sound library it uses(Bass) was/is not free for commercial use though, but it can be disabled and replaced with your own/another sound library.
heh, I think it brightened it up a bit :D
P.S you're fat!
Shoot people with the mines you also use for transportation, or beat them in races.
Who knows what mods will do to it though?
It better not be an April Fools btw, it's 2nd april here when I woke up and saw this.
Oh, that's a change from the last trail I saw :O
I couldn't even recognize it as Source.
Job well done on the makeover, gameplay looks smooth too.
Yeah it was :D
Minor nag, isn't Jailbreak getting too much credit, it's my brain production and I ain't a Jailbreak developer :P Ofcourse, their textures/models and Wills being part of the team do deserve a mention.
My first mod experience with it...
Ya still alive Nauz? :D
Who knows? Certainly not in the first release though. But ya never know!
sounds cool, wouldn't piercing be better vs strong armor though like in mount and blade, since piercing = small sharp metal thingy piercing through a small area = easy in = hurt through armor.
Bah I've been playing Mount&Blade alot, they have piercing damage as best vs armor because it halves the armor rating of the armor on each hit or something, while cutting damage will be effectively blocked by heavy armor therefore cutting = good vs light armor and piercing = good vs heavy armor.
But that's how it is in Mount&Blade, no idea if that's realistic or desirable for Overgrowth ^^
I'd have to agree with stenchy here, you could get this mod on every download site you want too, why go for an exclusive on one if you could have way more coverage by going to many sites.
Anyway looking forward to playing this :D
Pretty fun game, it just felt too slow for me,
Also was intersesting to have pretty much all my asteroids be attacked one by one by a army of 400 LOL, I didn't think the AI was smart enough to gather a massive attack :O
But really though, I wish it had a speed up button in some situations :)
awesome concept :D
saw a video earlier without knowing what it was from.. now I do :D
very awesome, the mace looks like great fun too! smack down multiple zombies in one hit :D
0.5 is gonna rock more
what more do people want? :D
btw new podcast series called podcast17 will mention the new update of JailBreak, should bring a heap of new players hopefully :)
their new episode should release monday or tuesday or so, maybe they'll even interview the jailbreak team but they didn't say they would so... but one can always hope!
anyway check it out:
Yeah I have some stuff thought up
first I will be finishing the 3 first grenades though, the skull grenade IS like the half life 2 grenade, the melon grenade will be more like a very weak and small explosive radius contact grenade without a timer.
like Nauz said alot is gonna be custom in the first release already unlike some other mods I know.
The only few things that aren't custom is the basic game mechanics(movement and physics interaction) and the gamemodes will be deathmatch and team deathmatch, but for later releases there's gonna be more gamemodes as well.
