Since 2004 I've taught myself, and others, in just about every discipline the Source engine offers.

Varsity @ Week report

If you still haven't compiled, you're highly likely to run into tens of problems when you do eventually make the leap. Unless a map has leaks, there is no such thing as "not ready for compiling".

Varsity @ Community Bonus Pack 3, Volume 4 (version 2)

Really? I uploaded the file from a URL so I've never had the chance to open it.

Varsity @ Every Discovery Server is Offline due to Massive DDoS Strike

I don't think it's too far off the mark. These things are either about blackmail or ego.

Varsity @ Will you be switching to UDK now (Unreal Dev Kit)?

If I'm making multiplayer, I want lag compensation. If I'm making singleplayer, I want an existing story to plug into. So no, not me.

Definitely going to give it a whirl though: if nothing else, it's good practice for potential industry work. :-)

Varsity @ How many of you read EULA's (End user license agreement)?

I remember reading a lot of the Windows Live EULA because it was actually written in a very approachable style. Frontloading the useful information was helpful too.

Never bothered with any others.

We keep a phial of pixie dust, and use a pinch every time we want to add a new game.

I'll second the comments, er, comment. I guess we can always open forums, but comments are so much simpler!

Yes, it is "entirely" Steam. It's on the retail discs.

Varsity @ Whats the speed of your internet connection?

I like how "21st century" and "modern day" are different choices. ;)

I'm on an 8MB package, but the actual top speed we get this far from the exchange is 5MB.

Varsity @ cryengine3

It looks okay in the thumb, but check the whole image. The rocks in the mid-ground have textures that would make HL1 blush, and you can count the individual polygons on the mountain in the background.

This is a nice demo for their art department, but not so much for their graphics tech!

DOW2 is £10/$20 on Steam today! It's a ridiculous bargain. I'm getting it now. :)

Varsity @ CSS SCI FI 3: Hardwired full installer

I'm getting this issue, but worked around it by extracting the mod manually. But I can't avoid the configuration tool popping up the same message. Could you upload a fixed version of that one file somewhere? Don't want to download the whole mod again for it.

(BTW, the config tool requires admin privileges to run! Just an annoyance.)

Varsity @ Overheid [demo]

It almost never lets up from start to finish, yet most of the time you can't actually harm the helicopter. Plus you're sprint-jumping along a quay without any context or any aim in mind.

What you've got is a section that might work as part of a large whole, if it was smaller / included a vehicle.

Varsity @ What operating system do you use on a regular basis?

I've never understood that. The tools they use, Photoshop and so on, are *exactly* the same on Windows! :s

Varsity @ Overheid [demo]

It's competent but not great. The pacing is all over the place, due mostly to the near-constant presence of the helicopter.

Looks like something out of a JRPG tbh, what with all that mecha-angel stuff going on.
