Founder and Lead programmer at OldTimes Software.
You should worry about getting the project finished first before worrying about what platforms you're porting it to.
Well aware of it, thanks. But that's also why it's stated some of which and not all of which :)
Either way the description is old and our attitudes have changed so it's pretty outdated anyway.
Really nice! But aren't they a little too clean? I might be wrong but I remember that these children were meant to be working inside factories so wouldn't they be a little more scruffy looking?
You are aware you can mute music right?
Yup! We're still alive and active here :)
Open-source remake of the construction kit for Morrowind I'm assuming.
We had already considered using a more modern engine but because of the simplicity of the Quake engine it seemed like a much better choice, especially when we were also expecting to develop it in the long-term instead of just for one project. With all the work we've already put in it would be incredibly stupid for us to switch engine at this point.
May I also add here that choosing an engine purely because of the visuals it produces is of no interest to us and should not be the deciding factor you should be looking for when deciding on an engine.
Depends on the game. If it's an open-world game then potentially having a randomly generated world could make every users experience different and unique while also encouraging them to play again and again, but I believe for games that need a more detailed environment with things in the world that need to have meaning to the player I do believe they should be designed by hand.
I don't think there will ever be a time when procedural levels will replace creating them by hand, instead generating levels procedurally becomes more of a tool that would be used depending on the game that's being created...
These are in-development shots taken on my laptop with the game running in windowed mode so that I can monitor any debugging information on my other monitor (I have a dual monitor set up).
When the map and game is closer to being complete then you can certainly expect to see higher-resolution screenshots but for now I've opted to share new shots with you guys whenever something new pops up just so that we're throwing media out at a more regular basis, rather than throwing out one new screenshot every few months.
Can't really see any visual difference between your CPU lighting and CPU+GPU lighting.
They're not finished yet.
It would be a good idea to organise everything as if you were about to release it. For OpenKatana we have the source-code, mapping tools and documentation all organised into an SDK folder (the SDK folder reflects the game folder in its structure but of course contains the raw junk) which is submitted to our SVN repository within the games folder so that if anyone wants anything from there we don't need to clean it up and so it can be easily released with the project without modification.
This is assuming you guys are using a SVN repository for Left4Quake anyway...
Not sure how this is relevant to QuakeC...
Yup! The gun (or "head") is seperate from the base and rotates relative to its target position :)
Personally I didn't take it but I thought it was worthy to upload since I felt that it being a photograph made it a little more... Mysterious?
If it's a big issue then I'll upload a better image later if I can but I can't promise anything since it's still being worked on.
Thanks for the add.
Before you say it, no it's not dead.
It only took them a whole year...
The engine will certainly be open-source since it's based on code released under the GPL license. As for the code for things such as the game-logic, we're still debating whether it will be released or whether we'll keep it closed...
When we get closer to release I'll let everyone know what will be happening in regards to things such as the source-code.
We'd love to but there are various legal issues around putting a project such as this on Steam and overcoming those issues simply means more work for us, but we appreciate your suggestion and your support.
