Yeah lol, need some sleep.

Just a programmer is hard to find on zero budget, never mind a good one. We are currently looking at other sources of funding and a lot is going to change with ghostship so keep watch :)

Hi glad you are enjoying the demo. Like i have stated numerous times, we need a programmer, the helmet view is as far as i have managed to get and much more needs to be done. The shake will be perfected when we have a programmer so will the other thing such as health display and stamina etc.

The story mode is much easier and there are nmo enemies in the first room. The aliens behind the door can get through closed doors because of the AI issues we have and with no programmer to fix the bugs and work further on the AI it will take time. In the beta and full release you will have no enemies until you get to the bridge.

Did you play the new alpha by the way (0.36) ?

Funding is our biggest challenge, but essential for development.

"From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A ghost ship, also known as a phantom ship, is a ship with no living crew aboard; it may be a ghostly vessel in folklore or fiction, such as the Flying Dutchman, or a real derelict found adrift with its crew missing or dead, like the Mary Celeste.[1][2] The term is sometimes used for ships that have been decommissioned but not yet scrapped, such as the Clemenceau (R 98).[3]"

Need i say more?

There will be a "ghostship" tourist attraction style release where you just explore the huge ship, there will be ghosts on that one! Its more of a tourists attraction than a game! Great for sci-fi fans to explore a huge scary spaceship and even better in oculus rift as you will have time to look at your surroundings and all the the ships facilities.

DO you mean the leachers? They do very little damage, and you can just run away from them :)

I will be posting some gameplay hints for version .36 later today :)

Yes Ghostship is multiplayer and co-op, but the alpha versions are single player. We hope the first beta will also have multiplayer but that is all down to funding.

The new alpha is much better, the free roaming starts after you disengage the lockdown on the bridge :) If you go to captains console (bug in old aloha where no onscreen message says to activate the console) press e to use captains console (the console where the plasma rifle is!

The fund doesnt start until you disengage the lockdown :) New alpha is fixed and much better and easier and different.

The beta will be available to those who have contributed through crowd funding and those who have pre-ordered. The new alpha will be available very shortly here on desura (more on the new ghostship web site - www.cdfghostship.com) The new alpha has been vastly improved and its still free. Further updates and the oculus rift alpha will only be available to members. Alpha 0.36 is the last public release.

The Beta on Halloween will also be open to 200 beta testers (apply to betatester@cdfghostship.com) 200 of the applicants will be decided at the end of august. This is your only chance to play the alpha if you have not contributed. And as the price may be changing due to private investment and lack of crowd funding then don't leave it to long to pre-order or support our indieGoGo campaign.

The beta is a huge game and bigger than a lot of AAA games you get today. And it will have Oculus Rift support, so the first Beta version will be released on Halloween which will be very fitting, this is one of the scariest games you will play in helmet mode and oculus rift. We have reached the stage where are far from our target fund and now is the time we need funding, so after the imminent Alpha 0.36 release all updates and the beta will only be available for those who have helped us develop and build on the alpha, everyone will have to wait for the full release next year which will hopefully be in the first quarter 2014, but depending upon funding then development schedules may be put back a few months. I will keep you posted on this.

The alpha is a free so you can get get a feel for the game, the alpha fund raised less than £50, and the crowdfunding a little more. We still have a long way to go yet

Its more than an update, is almost a total overhaul. I will emailing desura tomorrow to work out when we can release it, and as an update or new install. Watch the news!

The alpha has had many, many changes and is much improved in every regard. We also hope to get the mac version out at the same time. Few days later than planned with the release as i have been ill for a few days.

It sounds like it is something to do with desura. it could be your install, try re-installing it or raise the issue with desura. Please let us know how you get on and if you manage to find out what the problem is so that others who may have the same problem in the future have more information on it.

Thanks :)

Anyone else know of this problem?

A few things i would suggest,

Download the latest version of directX and install that first, then try re-installing the GhostshipGame.

I have not heard of this problem yet, but i do know due to compatibility with the current version of wine for linux users, It tries to use DX11, i will see if there is anything i can do for the next alpha release with regards to that.

The fighter at the beginning you mean? i will work on that.

I need a programmer to do a lot of the things I want to do, I am limited to what I can achieve. Many improvements with regards to the mechanics will happen when i can get some help :)

All normal maps sorted now :) LOL, they wasn't normalized, you will see the difference now!

Doors fixed and re-textured, same as most of the environment :)

Cant make spec map for the blood decals, its unlit, have added a normal now though :)

Overall the more time i spend on the graphics the better, but as a solo dev my time must go into all areas of development, there are 4 decks out of the ship finished, the other 17 are all different, I am working on the Amroury at the moment which i hope to finish off and include in the alpha 0.36

The people who have gave Ghostship a 1 rating, please give some feedback on your score, if you want a better game then i need to know what you like about it and what you don`t like!

I have spent almost 3000 hours making this game with zero pay, I would appreciate a minute or two of your time to give some feedback.
