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.

Hi Guys, Sorry for the silence. Hopefully this will make up for it.

Here's what's been going on lately.

Mastasurf has added some animated buoys, an animated boat and a blimp to the Roshi Island map

Ryo has updated the grass shader

Darktooth is close to finishing his animation library which will help speed up animating the remaining models

Dalte has updated a bunch of the beam fx

Raven, Ryo, and Andy held a coding session 2 weeks ago and fixed the map change / map restart crash bug so hopefully now we can change maps with no problems

See you guys soon

Grega, you know why this ******** with people whining in the comments section is happening? Because you guys aren't transparent with the community. It doesn't matter what you're doing, if it's free, if it's done on your free time or not, you've made it public the moment you made a page on MODDB. Obviously, people expect some news after seeing their favorite project go quiet, and they'll rile up if you refuse to do so.

Don't get me wrong, Grega. I think you're awesome just by replying to comments here, and I know the mod isn't dead. But you should know that this would all end if you were just to release, well, anything.

Why can't you guys release a new trailer, or atleast tell us why you're not doing so? It costs you nothing. A little transparency is all we ask.

Dalte is working on the trailer. The preview for the trailer is the vid a few posts down.

As for transparency. Nothing really changed. DT is still tackling the animations, the end of the school year is still keeping most people occupiued, and ATIs Open GL support is still screwing us every chance it gets (not to mention the CCC crashes the drivers constantly and not only in ESF either).

There just isnt much going on we can show or tell about really.

That's cool, but if you guys are experiencing issues with ATI drivers, don't be afraid to tell it to us! We revel in that kind of information, it's good to know how things are going.

Grega Jun 16 2015 replied:

Believe me its not just us. AAA titles are having serrious issues. Heck its a constant issue with ATI drivers since Watch Dogs was released. That game had a serrious ATI instability crash problem even over half a year after its release. GTA V, Witcher 3 all games that are graphically demanding are crashing the drivers. Could be one of the shaders that we are also using or something totally unrelated.

In ESFs case the game crashed the moment you start to swoop. Strangely it doesnt happen if you shut down the CCC. And installing the drivers without the CCC also improoves stability greatly. But thats not something the end user should be forced to do if the company bundles the thing in an installer to begin with.

ATI is getting really bad lately.

Its my personal opinion,
I loved ESF:ECX RC2 gameplay more than Dragonball:xenoverse. It was so much more fun than xenoverse, online fights + transformations + wishing using dragonballs + fusions were awesome in ESF.
Xenoverse has variety just because it is made by a whole team of above 100 people coming together, whereas ESF is made just by a group of dedicated people, before you guys speaking against them,think about it..even those people have life!

I absolutely loved ESF:ECX RC2 !!! It was far far more better than xenoverse..(my opinion)
Even if their new mod which they're working on comes out or not, I really appreciate the work you guys have done till now..
