Founder and Lead programmer at OldTimes Software. I also kick out people whenever I feel like it.
Considering that floor is supposed to be dirt, it's awfully flat. Could try adding some variation?
We're alive. Big changes to announce though, so we'll be making an update at some stage.
The client, Desura, does still exist as it's still required to download any games bought on the website, Desura, which also still exists.
Which has been very much what I've been working towards, so that's good news! :)
Currently my own but slowly leaning towards Unreal Engine 4.
It's going well! Sorry that we've been really quiet but it's hard to find time between our personal lives, working on the project and trying to publicise it. I really hope we can find the time start showing everyone some more stuff soon.
Haha Daikatana is pretty famous for having a lot of brown and green. Luckily it's mainly just this level that has that brown tone and I'm trying to vary it as much as I can :)
... It's a photograph.
Thanks so much for this! :)
I'd potentially be interested in helping out with programming stuff, though I'm already working on another major project so it can't be full-time but I can lend a hand where it's needed. Even after registering I can't seem to post on your profile though from the link given...
Yup! Don't worry though as they'll work very differently than they did in Daikatana and will be much more capable of handling themselves.
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Either way the description is old and our attitudes have changed so it's pretty outdated anyway.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.
