Achievement Icons Needed
Double Action now has a reliable achievement system and we are ready to begin closed testing. Before we push the first batch to the public build, we need icons! This is where you and your fully sick MS Paint skills come in. If you want to put your own touch on the future of Double Action this is how to do it. Read on for the brief.

Icon specs
Each achievement needs one 64x64 colour icon (we'll use a desaturated and watermarked version for the 'locked' icon). The colour scheme must be simple and match our current title icon:

That is, black, white and yellow. You can also use the gold colour from this logo for secondary details or highlights. Designs must be clear and readable, but you can use any style you like. Vector art, hand painted, 3d renders, it's all good as long they all look consistent.

The icons should represent the achievement. I'm sure any avid achievement icon designer will have a ball coming up with their own designs. Here's the list of the first few we need:

Divepunch is its Own Reward - Get a divepunch kill
Michael Bay - Dive away from an explosion for reduced damage
Dodge This - Kill with a headshot at point blank range
SlowPro - Get three kills during one activation of slowmo
Skypunch - Kill a player with brawl during a superfall
Special Delivery - Cap the briefcase without killing anyone
Disco Stu - Earn 100,000 total style points
Potshotter - Get a long range pistol kill on an enemy holding a rifle

How to submit
Once you have made your icon you'll need to upload it to the net so we can check it out. If you don't already have an image service, Postimage is a good site. Then come to our super top secret development forums and post your icons! Even if you don't want to make icons for DA, feel free to come past the forums and contribute to the discussion anyway. We'll be picking the best icons that are consistent and clear reading.

There'll be more achievements coming soon and we'll need more icons so stay tuned to the Achievement Icons thread for more info as we have it!

Stay classy,
- The DA Team

We're still around, most of us are widely busy though. There are still plans for DA, it will just take a bit more time to pull through with it.

In the current state this mod is like the SPECIALISTS beta, but I see something in this mod.

KEEP UT THE GOOD WORK GUYS!!! ADD MORE WEAPONS ETC. and this will be the best mods of all time!!!!

It's a great mod, a true tribute to The Specalists.
Though the persuader can be buggy a lot that it won't fire at all, even when pressing fire 3 times (other weapons work just fine).
I enjoy diving and shooting people into the head. Diving from a building on accident and quickly shoot the other person who fell off too is just awesome.

It's a real shame though that a lot of players are treating this like a AAA Shooter game like: CoD/BF/MoH.
There's just shitloads of people running around with the vindicator not even trying to use the diving option.
Hell there's a lot of people even camping with the vindicator.
I mean it's an Action Packed Stunt Movie, John Woo based game. Yet there they are camping.

I'm kinda... disturbed that there hasn't been a review as of yet. But here's one I guess. This mod basically decided to bring the fun of games like Max Payne and Stranglehold into the magic of a first person multiplayer shooter and executes this surprisingly perfectly within a limited engine like Source. Even with the lack of players, when using bots I can have an absolute blast for hours on end just flying around and blowing everything up with doves going everywhere. Really the only problem I can…

Video of my @nodevember talk is now up: I had such a great time, big thank you to the organizers for inviting me.

@andreapollitt @kng Actually! My wife says she did meet you and saw your Simon at the burn and she played and loved it!

Nov 15 2015

@jacqueswoodcock I have feedback but it's long, could I send to your email?

Nov 15 2015

@andreapollitt @kng Aww too bad. Thanks though, and good work!

On the suggestion of @nickriggs I moved the Jai primer to GitHub: There's still a lot I've not covered, PRs welcome.

Nov 14 2015

@kng That Simon that was brought to the burn ... was it at the Charcade? Is it going back next year?

Nov 14 2015

Had a great time at the talk. Pretty sure Nodevember will be posting it on their Youtube at some point, I'll link when they do.

Nov 14 2015

@nilspin I'm also thinking of making more content in this vein instead of doing Kahn-style videos - more on that in a few weeks.
