Nice to see you alive n' kickin' man ;) I like the new name.
You should visit the european part of the ex-USSR once.
Gazoil is going to miss the game, but the game is also going to miss Gazoil! Maybe we'll meet again, maaaaybeeee...
Actually, I think it would be good if you would allow for some modding after the release (which technically shouldn't be too hard, considering the Cry Engine 3 being quite accessible). The community will certainly be interested in creating additional modern or classic weapons and enriching the existing arsenal.
Keep up the good work!
Good to see this profile around here ;)
Well, yes, kind of. How to put it correctly? Right now the emphasis is not put on preventing such attack (complete prevention and ultimate defence are impossible to achieve), but rather on the ability to get the server back to normal condition asap. I hope the article will be interesting for anyone planning to run a server for a non-profit free-of-charge MMO.
Wipe is on Friday, 6th of January 2012. We introduce new features, new content and a new game session.
Enjoy the rest of your time on the old server, tomorrow we start from the very beginning.
Be aware that the R:TW engine doesn't rely heavily on today's GPU architecture, but rather on a raw triangle/texture drawing/filling abilities of the card. Most of the graphics candy-eye nowadays go through shaders at some point, which is where your HD 6xxx card shines, thus providing you better overall visuals (and you can't expect that from older 3D engines). In short, too many tris/polys and higher diversity/resolution of the textures create a bottleneck. Some (earlier) driver revisions may help, although I doubt it will bring any significant change to your FPS. One can always try, of course.
My personal experience indicates that finding coders and 2D/3D staff is really among biggest problems for a game dev team. However, our current team (Cvet & Rotators) had never have any problems with coders. Our team is covered with approx. 80% of coders or other talents who work on something else, but do (have) code(d) something here and there. This is why I opted for Team Leaders, because it's THE link that holds the whole team together AND, at the same time, keep that same team working, producing creative stuff, pushing the development forward... It really demands incredible skills, and that can't be found easily nowadays.
The development of this game has been abandoned... Read more about it by clicking on this link: Planewalkergames.com
However, the development team "has the intention to release the game materials for TBH and the underlying WeiNGINE game code in some open source/open content license model which will permit the ongoing exploration and development of the game as a non-commercial, community project" (from the link above).
Rick Dangerous? This stirs up some memories... and the premise is excellent. I would suggest a PC version as well, once the iVersion is released and stable. There's a fine bunch of older gamers looking for such games for various reasons, and it shouldn't be too hard to port the game, I guess. Of course, this shall pay off if the market allows it (i.e. it's not saturated by clones).
Nonetheless, good luck.
Have a good time with it!
You should really thank to Wounded Ronin, most of it is his idea. Unfortunately, his modding days are behind him, so consider this an homage to the great man with good ideas.
The laser pistol fits perfectly... Watch it kids, and learn from the pros ;)
Lovely jubbly! Good to see the mod is moving steadily towards release!
Sorry for this late reply, but no - I'm not going to make another one like Vault Rats. The crusade is over, there is another FallenOut world out there now and there's people enjoying it in all its lulziness there is (and there's, undeniably, plenty of it.)
I will, however, keep working on the original Fallout setting and improve it in the way its creators envisioned it within their designs, trying not to stray too far away from the given goal. Of course, Fallout 1 and the Fallout Bible (minus lulz) being the greatest guides on that path.
Currently, I'm developing a concept (design document) for the new total conversion (TC) mod for Fallout 2. It's nothing big, but it shall - most probably - grow. It's still too early to talk about it, so I keep it mostly to myself. Considering the current lack of time, the concept may take a while. Just sayin'.
It's not dead.
I'm actually looking forward to compare Nevada with SD2. Lexx already hit the nail of the Fallout essence right on the head with the first part, so it will be hard to get it any better than that. We'll see.
Clowns. Clowns never change.
The character name is probably taken, try another username. Alternatively, you can visit the official homepage (forum) and post your problem there.
Nice to see the games finally divided into 2 groups depending on their release status. There is something about rewarding those developers who manage to push it all the way through, compared to a titles which depend on a kind of hype that should keep players waiting for too long, way longer than the voting year is to hold on.
We would have won 2009 if it wasn't for the TBD titles, none of which got released even in 2010. Go figure. It's comforting to know the upcoming awards won't facilitate the old awarding methods.
On a side note, I do support the idea mentioned by a2ny about publishing the larger list of the competing titles once the voting is over. It provides a statistical base for comparison and evaluation: what kind of games were developed, what players prefered, what are the inovations that shook the world or flopped... A larger scope.
Oh! Such a rude comment for the best released indie game in 2009 (players choice)!
It's finished, just needs to be tested thoroughly. The demo for purposes of testing has been released today:
Why not starting right away? I'm sure Lich will be grateful for your help (and most probably put you in the credits list).
True. It's basically inherited from the original game, but could be avoided with better mission design. Some missions are quite hard for today's standards, I have to admit it, but I won't be updating them anymore...
If you need help with the scripts, let me know. I'm somehow confident you won't have any problems with them, but just in case. There may be a bug or two in there, but I can't force myself to fix it. The mod looks good the way it is, I guess.
Well, yes. It was released soon after the "Beth, the old hag" mod, but then again, it's not really anything new, since this mod is more than 3 years old.
I just had to move it to ModDB recently, because my ISP was polite enough to remove my homepage from their server without notifing me (luckily, I made a backup of all stuff there).
You were playing "Vault Rats" back in the days, don't you remember? Here: Nma-fallout.com
