0.6 has a completely different codebase from 0.5 and is re-written from scratch.

Nope, I'm afraid not. 0.5 will never be released... because we're moving straight to 0.6!

The next release will be entirely on the Orange Box Engine, and is a completely code-rewrite to ensure it's as tight as possible. We're already around a 1/3rd of the way through, and it wont take much longer! So keep your eyes peeled for more news!

That's achieved using After Effects, basically you duplicate the video clip you want the lighting effect on, so it's layered ontop of each other. Then you change the blending mode to screen, add a gaussian blur (any amount depending on how intense you want it), and change the opacity to affect how much of the effect you want seen. So...

Duplicate Layer
Blending Mode: Screen
Guassian Blur: 3
Opacity: 60%

Well, I thoroughly enjoyed this article! Short, sweet, to the point and very fun too! And I think it IS something that needs to be said from time to time. Too many startup teams sadly waste people's time by setting expectations and aims way too high, and expecting/demanding other people do the real work.

An article like this is a great, fun way of saying "maybe, you should make a whole bunch of stuff first, and the karmic reward of doing this will be that a few GREAT team members will join your mod and make it awesome!"

You have to browse to the Store Page to get it:

Just clicky, "Play Game" to start downloading.

Sadly, due to a few whingy types who don't like free games "cluttering up" their games list, Valve withdrew all the Source Mods from peoples Uninstalled foldout tab, so now the Source mods can only be found in the Mods section of the store.

Wills Feb 6 2009, 8:28pm says:

Wooo! God I love this mod, it's by far and away one of the best out there. Been playing all evening, and it's such a rush cutting engines on a pursuing fighter, spinning around on a penny and seeing that moment of "wtf? how did he do that?!!" as you plow into them with dual cannons roaring. Love the new game modes too, adds some great variety to the server rotation.

But the best bit is how friendly everyone's being, there's no rude players (that I've seen), everyone is decent and helpful and the devs are great fun to play against. Can't wait to join you guys on the servers, especially if I get to kill Dave :D

Just followed your profile link on the ES post-mortem article, to this, absolutely fantastically well-written article! Really enjoyed it man, you make a very good point about Alyx acting as a kind of counter-point to Gordon/The Players own view, she allows the player to disagree, agree, or simply follow her orders, negating the whole aspect of confusion or disillusion present in other games without such a character. I'd never thought of that aspect before, and it was really interesting to learn your thoughts on it. Great article!

Very interesting post-mortem. I had no idea you guys had the opportunity to visit Valve and demo ES to the guys there. It's really interesting reading all the parts about managing/juggling the community, the beta testers and the team, something we've also been learning as time has gone by. Really interested read, well written too. I'm also pleased you're going in a more intuitive direction in the future... Can't wait for ES 4.0!

Not having a go at you buddy, but it does frustrate me when people say "doesn't look like it was made on the Source engine", as if the Source Engine is some piece of second rate junk. Maps like this and mods like Eternal Silence, show off exactly what the Source engine is capable of, and how versatile it is in comparison with other engines. Great map by the way!

Just to clarify what I was saying: We have been inspired by many other games in developing Jailbreak, theres no issue there, we've looked at what works and good ways of rewarding the players and used those concepts in our own way.

Also, I'm unsure whether you're criticising the perks system in your second paragraph for allowing overpowered players or simply stating exactly what the perks system does. As all the things you mentioned are not possible, for reasons of balance.

Wills Feb 9 2008, 4:57am replied:

... There's nothing that's particularly original about the Perks system we're implementing, it's been around for years, with Fallout being the one that inspired us (our coder is called Dogmeat, that should tell you something). We're not attempting to do anything hugely original here, just trying to do something fun and cool :)

Oh and I've not played COD4, neither has anyone on the team... we're not fans of realistic military shooters, we like daft crazy games with sci-fi guns and perks!
