I make things. Lots of things. Mostly...I make no sense.
You can still get a free version at our website via our SVN, as well as through Linux distros. We'll also put up a .zip snapshot of it later this week for those who don't wish to use SVN.
However, the Steam version has a lot of extras, many more skins, more maps, and all of the stats, achievements, trading cards, and other goodies, plus automatic updating of everything.
Thanks, fixed it.
For now, play with GLSL disabled. At the moment, it seems this is a driver bug, but we haven't solved it yet.
Yeah this is a likely driver bug, we are looking into it.
Without any information about your system specs and drivers, nobody is going to be able to help...can't read minds :)
No, the entire model has been reconstructed. Compare the legs and arms from the previous versions, everything is brand new.
Thanks :) Might have the Overlord finished by the weekend...
Make sure that OpenAL is installed and working properly.
The idea of leaning is it gives you the ability to peak around a wall. So I am not sure what you mean by your question.
How can we help you, without providing system information, operating system, etc?
It is still based on id Tech 2, but it's completely rewritten into a modern rendering system.
We had some delays, it will be coming very soon.
Well, hard to help without any other information....
It sounds like you have a netbook with an integrated graphics chip. Those aren't really good for playing 3D fps games.
Most of it was stripped out, but could be re-added if someone was inclined to code a single player project using the engine.
All versions of Alien Arena are compatible.
Post the error in the forums at Red.planetarena.org and someone there will be able to help you.
Yup, that is the plan in the near future.
Note - the resolution of shadowmaps can but turned up by cvar, but at a performance cost of course.
If you are going to give us such a bad review, please make some constructive comments as to how we can improve.
Alien Arena reviewed on Slashdot - Games.slashdot.org
You can apply the patch, or install the standalone version.
I recall we had reasons for that, I don't remember exactly what it was though. That area of our code is on our radar though, and in the coming months we are making some changes to it. It will render incredibly fast when completed.
Alien Arena doesn't use Darkplaces, or any code from Darkplaces at all.
The vlight code is a fallback for lower settings, it's not even used much, and it's pretty damn simple to be honest. There is nothing complex at all about it. I'm not sure what you are even talking about regarding the lighting being "mixed". It either uses vlight, or it uses GLSL, depending on the settings.
Thanks, hope to keep doing it for years to come.
It's been updated several times since then. Why not just install it from Red.planetarena.org?
Disruptor to the body takes at least two direct hits(unless you're in instagib mode). Disruptor to the head is one shot, one kill, regardless of mode.
No, you cannot go prone. This game is all about fast movement and gameplay, going prone would make you a sitting duck in these arenas.
