So is this why you asked me to add Dreamcast support to JHLMV? :D
I don't know why so many people here and elsewhere want to know the details of how he died. It's a bit disturbing really. :/
All I will say is that it was a tragic accident that happened at home that wasn't entirely his fault.
firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to get in touch with us.
The skin textures are shared between multiple models so if we added shadows they wouldn't match between them.
Then again, it's easy to spot small details like that in a still image. In game you never notice it at all.
As Steve said, the videos are a bit misleading. We have actually slowed down the player speed over the default HL2/Source values so you do in fact move slower. The only difference we have over DoD is that our finely trained soldiers have a little more stamina and can sprint a little longer than their asthmatic DoD counterparts.
Last time I checked I was one of the co-founders of the mod :)
"more troop visual variety"
1. identical or consistent, as from example to example, place to place, or moment to moment.
2. without variations in detail.
3. constant; unvarying; undeviating.
4. an identifying outfit or style of dress worn by the members of a given profession, organization, or rank.
We're trying. We're only a small team with limit resources so replacing everything will take a while.
None of us are or were on the original DoD team. Many of us are "old salts" from the DoD community and some of us made a lot of popular custom maps and a few had their content included in DoD.
But to repeat, no-one on the HaJ team is ex-DoD or ex-Valve (except maybe Waldo, but he's just a tester so he doesn't count :P )
