April fools anyone? It's got to be, otherwise... yeah :/
Got my vote!
Appreciate all the praise guys, it really means a lot to the team and I that you're liking what you see so far.
Our animators will be very happy to hear so much praise from you guys. They did an excellent job imho and thank you :)
Really impressive work guys. I will definitely be keeping a look out for your next project and recommend this video for all and not just gamers.
Well in valves case... The wait is usually worth it :)
Good stuff D
Voted up, but for the first line in parenthesis. I laughed hard too :D
Basic trolling. But yeah I would have linked definitions rather than provide names of games people were going to vote on/against even though they KNOW that wasn't the point.
I think you completely missed the point. No one claimed EVERY single competitive gamer is a 12 year old racist severely lacking the vocabulary to communicate with anyone over the age of 50. That said, you're more likely to be insulted or called a racial slur than not whilst playing competitive games. Personally I prefer immersive (emergent?) games where I get lost for a week. Then again I'm loving the hell out of Trials Evolution atm.
Because of the sample mod/game names vs the style.
If you check the news post there are torrents available yes. Also available on Desura.
We'd like to think so! :)
As far as I can remember there never was one posted by the team. All I could find was one french fan who wrote what he missed. Might have been a sad dream :( But NT is not dead :) Life just makes it a real challenge to put more time into it.
Desura has the latest version yes.
Usually if you're able to join a server this is a tell tale sign that all is as it should be but you can also compare your version to the latest changelog. Finally if you're still not sure you can remove from sourcemods and re-install from desura or our latest installer.
Unfortunately this is a Source Engine issue and we don't have access to the higher tiers to possibly improve performance. That being said there is always - Support.steampowered.com
Wish there were a simpler answer (and if there is please share!)
Any source game including the TF2 which is free. In Steam under Library > Tools make sure Source SDK Base 2006 is installed then run our installer/desura installer. Restart steam and it should be listed under your games. Hope that helps :)
Hrmm I'm not exactly sure what error you're getting. Could you maybe post the exact error message you're receiving. As for options not showing up, that is very odd. Is it possible you have the console covering it? Be sure to also check our forums at Neotokyohq.com
We never had shirts for sale but the music is still available for purchase as an MP3 album. Unfortunately the CDs were sold nearly at cost but with the additions Ed may wish to sell again. I gave away all my hard copies to friends thinking I'd buy more later myself haha. Check Cdbaby.com as well as amazon for the MP3 Albums. Will update if anything changes on that front.
We apologize that you feel that way, but unfortunately we can't make everyone happy as our time is just as valuable as yours but probably a bit more limited. Still we appreciate your input.
I agree that would be cool but honestly the time involved and the fact that many of us already work 2 full time jobs + kids/family would make this an incredible undertaking and not one I think we could do as a free mod but I don't think it's an uncommon thought.
Please make sure under Library > Tools you have Source SDK Base 2006 installed. If you do not and also lack a source game you can download TF2 free which comes with 2006 as well as 2007. Restart steam again and try once more. If that fails I suggest removing Neotokyo from your steam\steamapps\sourcemods folder and re-installing. Let us know if this helps.
freebird4481: This is all very basic. Like every other mod you'll need a version of Source SDK Base installed. For NeoTokyo you'll need to go to tools under library and make sure you have Source 2006 installed. Once you run the installer you then need to restart steam so it can repopulate. It should now be listed under Library > Games. We apologize for not providing instructions but this is usually common knowledge. I hope that helps.
Delayed by us. Once posted it was actually up and running very quickly. Don't want the hard working ppl behind ModDB to take the rap.
Delayed post. Was ready on the 16th :)
Wish I could answer that question but all depends on how quickly documents are signed, people respond via Email, and access.
No, it shares 1 similarity. But then again it's free so why should that matter heh.
Link? Also, your point? The price is almost free by today's standards and obviously some thought went into the design. I'm sure there are enough people interested in a bit of nostalgia mixed in with tower defense for their efforts to be noticed and their time not wasted.
Actually each update requires you publish on Desura as it's not on Steamworks. Desura installs to Sourcemods while Steam installs to your common folder like other games released on Steamworks. ZPS still supports both and we publish separately on release.
Would love to see where we placed but can imagine it would be a huge undertaking and not every game has media prepared or could possibly complain of media that was available. Coordinating something like that would be very time consuming and though while I'd like people to see where we placed as did other games I can imagine that time being better spent on the future of IndieDB/ModDB/SlideDB. Course that's just my point of view.
Мы хотим выпустить в 2013 году
"When?" "We want to release in 2013"
Many mods are inspired by other projects whether game, film, etc. It is not only the inspiration that fans flock to but the hard work the modding community support. Also helps if you actually play the mod and appreciate what's new before judging a game by preconceptions. Still most importantly it's "Player's Choice" and that means they've grabbed the attention and support of more players making it difficult to argue. We all have our own personal preferences, they just had the majority.
As Henley put it it did in fact make top 10 but isn't the first time. It just didn't beat it's previous place so received an honorable mention. Congrats to Third Age once again!
Probably personal preference like the OP.
I think the comments say more than the poll.
It all depends on the experience, quality, and overall production and development of the title that seems to set a price gamers feel are realistic and fair.
In the end Free (without micro-transactions) will always be "bring it on!" but many will be wary if even the bandwidth is worth it. There are however numerous free mods available with years of work put into them and game-play that keeps bringing them back.
$1-5 works well for impulse purchases imho. Some people wait for the insane sales or humble bundles hoping their game falls into that list.
$10-20 I think gives the impression that the game better be worth the cost but still falls into the affordable so likely to purchase category if what is being delivered matches that or exceeds it through Hype, Demos, Previews, Reviews, Free weekends, and in vary rare cases those who stopped pirating and have decided to support developers not bring them down.
If an Indie can sell for more than $20 I can only hope it doesn't start a trend like our bigger brothers have done each year but some games just hit that sweet spot or have had a lot of work done including a custom Engine, etc.
In the end I'm for the $15-20 but recommend doing your research before purchasing any title or downloading a free one.
Looks like a lot of work went into these. Congrats to all :D
1 Hour left to win Dead Island or another game of your choice! - Monochrome-games.com
Compiled a fix and shipped to Valve today. Waiting to confirm it's fixed :)
"earlier today we sent v2.1 of Zombie Panic: Source to Valve and are eagerly awaiting it's proper release"
We have to use steamworks to compile our patch (quite large) then ship it off to Valve who then needs to release it to the public. I would wager a guess that it may not actually be available till Monday but they've surprised us before.
I just once again finished Aquaria (having bought it like 3x now due to bundles or what not) and have to say I had a blast. I've not had the time to sift through the team news and what not but took notes during credits. I'd really like to thank Derek Yu and Alec Holowka for an incredible game that has gotten me through 2 weeks of quitting smoking (game was quite relaxing yet kept me good and focused) and to Naija's VA Jenna Sharpe who did an excellent job and would make a great fit in our own Indie project and will be looking to contact for that purpose when the time comes. To Jon Perry all I have to say is loved the Aquarian Language/Alphabet. While not overly complex it required you pay attention to quite a bit in the game like main menu transition to even begin to decipher right away. I use to do the same when I was a kid just to see if I could. Once again wanted to thank you all and anyone I may have missed for such an excellent game.
I'm looking forward to the results on this one and can't predict which will win but I'm quite a fan of Dear Esther and wish em luck.
Yeh, not buying till it releases for PC. But a beautiful looking game either way.
The idea is to have 3 categories of achievements
True Achievement - Gold (Requires practice and skill)
Good Achievement - Green
Bad Achievement - Red (Viewable to all)
We're still working these. As for the typo, we did catch it but then I returned to work putting it off for later. That's what I get.
This is why we pointed out these were old WIP animations in the description. Shells eject after pump as they should now and as for the rotation on pump it's for style > realism, remember this is a game and not the real world. Have to balance between gameplay and realism.
wilsonC: One of the first things fixed. But appreciate the keen eye and tip :)
Didn't you say the same thing when I fired you from ZPS after having done no work (before your stint on NMRiH)?
Nice work dave, liking the new spotlight.
Definitely digging the info that pops up on the bottom. Good to see another mod spotlight :D
Agree with the rest. Congrats.
Merry Xmas guys. Thanks for a productive year. Looking forward to 2010...
Think he was goofing off a bit :)
Nice work guys, looking forward to future updates.
Looking good guys. Will be keeping an eye out on progress.
The shoes are already being worked on for both Survivor/Zombie.
