Oh gosh, this makes me feel old... I've been hanging around here for a decade. Congratulations sexy Scott and sexy Dave, you know you done good ;)
Ah this explains it. "I really started to hurt my eyes." He was stabbing himself in the eyes with forks whilst playing. I can understand this.
YOU SHOULD NOT STAB YOURSELF IN THE EYES WITH FORKS WHILST PLAYING.
Izzy I think you should add this as a disclaimer next time, to ensure noone else makes the same mistake. It is unclear as it stands.
Four years and six releases later... I did!
Small spanner is perfect for the job. Multi-Barreled Pink-Gnome Shooter is unnecessary. Comprende? I are succinct.
Also, "guys?" No, no... *DONS GRUFF TRAILER VOICE*
Having played it, I can confirm it's even hotter than the trailer makes it sexy. Yes, I meant that sentence.
Yes. Yes. And more ******* Yes.
Izzy, I want your face.
Your FACE happened. THAT's what! HA!
We're setting up a 24 player server for the night, and if there's more acts than open spots, we'll run a second round of acts later in the evening.
The night will be run exactly like a talent show, with a presenter, a panel of judges, an audience, spotlights, stage doors and... surprises! We'll be filming everything too!
You damn well better sing Erasure you Unicorn lover!
Just to clarify, the Talent Show is this Saturday at 7:30pm GMT. It will take place on a custom map. There will be a prize of any Steam game for the winner!
Because we all play on the event nights, so you need to join the Steam Group to get on! :D
If anyone has trouble finding a game, jump into our IRC Channel on gamesurge.net #jailbreaksource or via our webportal here: Jailbreaksource.com
It's a lively and fun community and we're using it for pickup games, as well as chatting! So come join us!
Woohoo! Just had an awesome game! :D
I'm totally gonna make a timetrial map. And it's totally gonna blow your minds.
Aye, I'm working on the GraviNULL team, and the Jailbreak team as a whole is more than happy for these guys to use all of our art assets in anyway they see fit, because this mod is AWESOME!
Looking forward to tonight!
You misspelt the map name too, should be gn_church ;D
As Bluefire says, we've been running a closed beta, with many different players, every day, for two hours per day, since development began. DuckSauce runs an intensive schedule!
Video from last nights Kiss Chase game! See? PEOPLE!
Join the Jailbreak Steam group! Lots of games!
Oh no! SneakySauce has deployed public humiliation tactic! Wills will fix pictures immediately! On another note, this is one absolutely freakin' incredible mod, and the sheer speed at which these guys are putting it together is completely unprecedented.
Jailbreak: Source - Anything can happen! :D
Also, I just wanted to point people in the direction of our Tutorial Blog. It contains, so far, almost 70 tutorials on the Source Engine, ranging from Programming to Modeling and Mapping to Publicity and more. Go check it out here: Blog.jailbreaksource.com
We're running a Big Breakout Weekend Live Stream! Justin.tv
Thanks to INtense I've added a countdown timer to the news post now, so you know exactly when it starts!
The first game will start at 14:30pm EST, and the second game will take place at 7:30pm EST. This will be the same for each day.
We're organising something big for this weekend, keep an eye on the front page :) Otherwise, people mostly play around 7:30pm UK Time/GMT.
But... but... Mr Whippy?
Bought it on the strength of this. Better be good Dave! :D Congrats Reckless!
Well said DuckSauce ;) Congrats to the Overgrowth team!
Awesome stuff DuckSauce! Such a great idea! I pimped this on Podcast 17 last night :D
Thanks man! I've just noticed an error in the guide though. It states that you should use the directory Jailbreak-dev. Don't. Use the directory Jailbreak. Apologies, I wrote this whilst we were still developing the mod!
Hmm... Yeah let know how it goes, and I'll try to help out.
Hi Awesome Ninja,
Can you give me some more details on how you've got your server setup? Is it running SRCDS from a command line, or are you using the Source Dedicated Server from within Steam?
If you're using SRCDS from a command line, have you downloaded the Orange Box base using SRCDS? If so, have you moved the folder HL2, into the root directory of orangebox? So it's next to Jailbreak? This is a very important step.
Other things to check are the existance of the Valve.rc file inside the CFG folder.
Yes you can :)
Wow! Eulogy from Planet Half-Life just gifted Killing Floor to me! Haha! You're a legend man!
Gah! I'm jealous! Great game, but I missed the deal when it was cheap over Christmas after getting delayed on the way back from work :(
Haha! So do I! If anyone fancies buying me Killing Floor then feel free! :D
Galatea was definately in the running (along with a few others) and was a very creative and clever entry, but in the end we decided to go with Harlie. No need for bitterness buddy, it was a fun competition! :D
Haha! We had a lot of fun running it too! Really enjoyed putting the two videos together... although I can NEVER listen to Avril Lavigne again. I must've listened to that one minute segment about 400 times in the last two days.
Hehe! Just posted the news and it hasn't been authed yet, so yeah, don't post here :D
Two years ago?! Thanks ZPS, now I feel really old! Haha!
Working on it! Don't expect it for this version though :)
Once you've learned some manners, maybe we will ;)
Nope, no changes to weapons or sounds etc. Just a straight forward Survival map to begin with, and then a few months down the line, the full five map campaign!
Yep! It's a straightforward Survival map, which is also going to form the mid-point finale of a five map campaign. I've currently completed three of the five maps, and am working on the last two! I've been trying to stick to the style and appearance of the standard L4D maps, to ensure consistency, whilst really focusing on the gameplay and not letting players get lost.
Haha! Poor Nauz!
That's an engine crash, nothing to do with FoF.
So you're not after opinions on the subject? Just people that agree with you? Sorry, my mistake...
Totally agree, this has got really old now, and very boring to hear about.
I'll definately be inviting you back for a preview of 0.6 INtense :D Already looking forward to it!
Yeah, we've actually made them already, but the coder hasn't got round to sticking them back in yet. :D
LOL! Yes, players getting kicked in the *** if they stand behind too long would be genius :D
Haha! Nice! You guys deserve to be on Steam, hope you get the opportunity! So are the horses animated? And as horrible as this sounds, can they become collateral damage?
*sigh* FilePlanet Exclusive :(
Looking forward to this, looks fantastic and should be a refreshing change of pace/gameplay, but... the FP Exclusive route? Big shame.
Just wanted to make it clear that Mike Gomersall is the musician behind this track :D
You guys are insane... I LOVE IT! Man, that's gonna be quite tactical. Escaping manuevres, getting away from the Holy Hand Grenade, sneak aerial bombings! LOL! Cant wait!
Thaaaaat's actually a bug! The indicator is actually for when the British Bulldog Execution is taking place, and it counts down how many players you need to kill in order to get bonus points for a "successful execution". Unfortunately, if the previous map ends on a BBD execution, the players remaining tab carries over to the next map in rotation! It'll be fixed before the release!
Yep, I second that: Fortress Forever, and Eternal Silence!
Hehe :D If Jahhur is playing then the MidEast Crisis/Iron Grip team are screwed! This sounds like great fun though, I'll be looking forward to this immensely. I've been wanting to get some dev vs. dev matches going but trying to pin other dev teams down was never easy! Good job!
Haha! That's cool... Hardcore indeed! Nice video once again Henley! :D
Jesus. Give him a break, it's a one man mod for christ sakes... God I hate the attitude of some people. I'll see if I can setup a little server later tonight for this once we finish beta testing JB! This is an awesome concept, and one I've wanted to see on Source for a long time :D
Haha! This sounds great fun :D Downloading now!
Really sorry buddy... I honestly thought Openday was finished... It's VERY finely tuned as it is, and is one of the best maps gameplay wise, it's going down really well on the server so far. When Map Pack #2 is released, I'll make sure to include the updated Openday.
Man, I have to buy UT2004 for some Killing Floor action! Perfect Stride Continuum looks hella fun too, loving the retro style... I'm off to download!
Huh? Not supporting mods as much of late? ModDB IS doing more than ever! Jailbreak has had more support from ModDB than all of the other news sites combined (except Interlopers, who've also been brill!). ModDB TV, the Modcast, features, previews, reviews, interviews, all with the developers of various mods!
Aye, firstly sky_camera needs to be placed at the origin of the map, and copy/pasted with the rest of the reference geometry so that both sky_camera's have matching positions relative to the map.
Secondly, the skybox needs to be 1/16th the size of the original room, which can be done by going to Tools; Transform, selecting scale and typing .0625 in the X, Y and Z boxes. You then can place geometry, displacements and skybox ready models into the skybox, all at 1/16th the original size.
These are then resized up to the correct size by the engine when you play the map. If you use displacements in the map though (like de_dust), then make sure you scale the textures down to around 0.05, otherwise they will look huge and ugly.
Nicely laid out and written tutorial, but you've really missed the whole idea of 3D skyboxes, and what makes them awesome.
Seconded. Very creative work there, and the skin looks supreme.
Each map in Jailbreak takes place in different periods of time and space! Some maps are set in space, some underwater, some in medieval times!
Because I cocked up! As a result, we had to Pakrat everything into our BSP, hence the models and textures being seperately released :D Sorry!
Yeah just so everyone knows... this is a review of Jailbreak 0.3.1 - NOT Jailbreak 0.4! :D
Sorry that ya think that buddy! Hopefully you'll download and play regardless :D Jailbreak is a lot of fun! Hope to see ya on the servers!
Just wanted to say that it was so much fun doing this interview! Me, Dogmeat, Henley and Stenchy had such a laugh recording it! Was dead funny, and blighted with technical errors and mistakes on my behalf, which incredibly they've managed to cover up completely so props to him for being a legend! Thanks for this guys!
Exactly :D Glad you got it!
lol PunK_Killer :) You're probably playing 0.3.1, everyone gets together on Saturday nights to play from 7:30 GMT... so come along then and join the fun, at least one server fills to max and the others get some good games too.
Little and strange maps though? Sorry if you didn't like them!
Wow. News got held back so long, this got dumped to the bottom of the second page :( Sucks. Guess there was a good reason.
Yeah might wanna watch that, its a nerf gun design...
"And thanks Undertone, I equally love your work on Firearms!" That was meant to be "we". lol
Indeed, we had several servers going yesterday, some with good pings, some with bad, two dedicated, but more than 6 players and they went down. Frustrating, but we hope as we release further versions and the popularity (hopefully) increases, people will be generous to us and send some more dedicated servers our way.
