ESF is a fast paced, 3rd person fighter based on the hit anime, Dragonball Z. Select your favorite character and fly, power up, transform, melee, and beam your enemies into pulp. Each character is given signature moves and abilities to compliment different style of play. Some are stronger in hand to hand combat, others are better with energy attacks. Play in three different game modes, deathmatch, team deathmatch, and capture the dragonballs. There is a learning curve so newbies beware. This is not your normal Half-life mod.

What demo. There is no such thing as a demo released. There is an old Open Beta from 2008, but thats from 2008.

This pic is 2013 ^^

I think what he was saying was, he doubts this game will see release. Some of us have our doubts, but only time will tell. It looks amazing, but lets all pray that they can make the final push to release.

No, even with his terrible command of English, I don't think that's what he was trying to say, simply because he's making up something about a nonexistent demo.

These graphics are incredible. I can't wait to play. A few questions, are we having a pic every week now? And can we start a LAN or private server so like my friend and I want to play and could we make a private server to fight 1v1? Also, the aura effects seen in the newer videos, it looks different from the more realistic aura effects in the Gohan Animaation Blends and Soaring over the Cell Games video. Will they ever be changed back? I would appreciate it if these questions were answered. On to the picture, is this an in game shot? The grass is great looking and the environment is as much eye candy as the amazing character models you all make. Better than Zenkai Battle Royale and keep doing what you are doing. Oh yeah, will Ssj God be in it as the movie is canon to DBZ. You guys are great and I look forward to seeing more of your work ESF team.

POTW kind of stands for Picture Of The Week. So yea a pic every week is the plan (and now that we have a PR person again that can be done easier). Just dont expect every pic to be from ESF: Final or something new. Its just a random pic.

Its still HL1. So yea LAN servers are an option, just like in HLDM.

Dalte updates the aura every now and then when he thinks of something, so in the end thats kind of his choice. Personally i think the new one looks better. It emits a better feeling of raw energy.

Yes this is an ingame shot.

We are not adding anime fillers, movies or DBGT, and seeing as this is a movie, SSJGod will not be included. Besides Goku has enough forms. In such cases we pretty much say "Screw canon, the series and what not. We want it nicely balanced"

There is no donation options any more. There used to be one for server upkeep, but that was removed with the move to our current server host. So yea just enjoy the game when it comes out.

Wow you guys actually responded. Thanks Grega. Didn't think about the balance so that's smart. Is there any way to get a mod or something that can change the aura effect back. It's all that bothers me because the new one feels like the old old old version. Can't describe it but I'll try. It's like there are roo many things going on in it where the other was just the awesome energy surrounding the character. New one feels more solid and covers the character and feels out of place. I don't know. Where can I talk to Dalte? Great job on everything though. Dat grass. So. Good.

Most visual effects should be editable.

Dalte can be found on our TeamSpeak3 server from time to time. He's normally named after genitals.

My friend does not believe that grass is not pre rendered. How will this game handle all the moving grass details. Also is this a new feature because I don't see grass on the other Cell Games map pics. It just looks GREAT and I really wanna know if this was just added and that's why it's not seen anywhere else but if it is. All I gotta say is wow. Just. Wow.

It's all in game and doesn't impact your FPS very much at all. Ryokeen has done amazing work.

It's a new feature and still WIP and can be scaled I believe.

Well well. The new PR guy is doing a great job answering my questions and such. Thanks man. I really like the look of this, and I can't be the only one. Don't change it guys. I literally can't wait for this mod. The only way I can wait is to forget about it for a while then come baack in a month or so to see if it can be released this year. Thanks, Deverz.

Cause it still uses Half Life for the core engine. And we are not really to keen on remaking the HL engine core by ourselves just so that we dont need to scrap all the work till now.

Besides is it really that bad to be a HL mod?

Yasiek Apr 16 2013, 9:38am says:

I see... It's not bad, HL mods are awesome, sometimes much better than others (e.g. Source). Only asking because I was curious :) I hope it will be working fine, especially after latest Half-Life update. I heard that many mods are corrupted since then.

Valve are working to fix the issues as fast as they can. You can also pretty much tell them whats wrong by doing the HL Beta update and providing them with the necessary bug reports.

A number of issues has already been fixed, or ways given to bypass them as a DIYS fix.

There are still some issues, but i guess whats hurting mods the most is that people dont know that they need to use STEAM CMD in order to run servers. If they dont use that, then servers dont appear in the server browser.

Like I've said to others, these are your 2 options.
1: You can have pictures and no release date
2: You can have NO pictures and no release date

I think I know what most people would prefer.

The simple fact it the team doesn't know how long it will take and they don't want to disappoint people by not meeting the deadline or by continually pushing it back. When it's done is the best date to give

no offense to any one but i see more vast reasons for forcing us to buy a legal copy of a 1 decade old game and forcing us to be verified with steam and **** :p who knows

We aren't forcing you to do anything but if you want to play ESF you will need HL1. It often comes on sale really cheap too.

Plus HL1 Is still a good game plus there are plenty of other mods to play.

Grega Apr 18 2013, 9:06am replied:

As Deverz said, no one is forcing anything on anyone. BUT the game may act buggy or crashy due to a non-STEAM version of HL, which isnt 100% compatible with the SDK we are using. So instead of wasting days trying to help someone to only find out that his problem doesnt even exist if he wouldnt have pirated HL, we decided to only help those people who verify that they own HL on STEAM.

But it is no way a mandatory thing on the forums. Even if some members may jump to that conclusion (including older forum members im afraid).

So it all comes down to 2 things:
- We dont support Piracy as it is an illegal activity to begin with
- The game is meant to be ran with the latest version of Half Life 1 which is only available on STEAM. Use it with something else, you are doing so at your own discretion and you have to deal with all the possible consequences yourself.

But other tan getting support for the game, the whole validation thing is not necessary.
