Q: When this mod is going to be released ?
A: Once the maps are finished, some models and multiplayer part are done :D

Q: I thought this mod was released already dude :S
A: We released back on 2005 an old beta version of Arrange Mode, which was the fundation of the current project, ARRANGEMENT. While, technically, it's a release, was not the game I wanted to release. Arrangement is.

Q: Is Multiplayer supported ?
A: Availability of multiplayer mode will be determined in the future.

Q: Can I play it on my sucky hardware?
A: Of course! Currently there is not any hardware restriction. If Half-Life works for you, then this mod should :)

Q: Is WON supported?
A: Some users tested the game on old WON version with aparently no problems, anywho, is not recommended to play it on WON. Due to the switch to the recent Half-Life source code, ARRANGEMENT is no longer compatible with WON versions of Half-Life.

Q: Is Xash3D supported?
A: No, you will likely get an error with "Failed to load client.dll" because we are using the latest Half-Life source code, not the one made for Xash3D.

Q: If WON and Xash3D aren't supported, then which Half-Life version do I need?
A: You need the latest legit Steam version of Half-Life in order to play ARRANGEMENT.

Q: Is still the mod Open Source?
A: Availability of the sources will be determined in the future. The old versions will remain open source, and you can find the code here.

Q: Who's Rich Douglas?
A: Rich Douglas is an independent composer and audio technician focused on providing unique music and sound effects for video games, film, and television. Responsible of Arrangement sound tracks.

As many of you did see in a previous update, we are excited to share a few technical improvements we did the last couple of weeks. Those include:

  • Massive update for studiorendering that includes ATI support, now models can cast shadows with VBO rendering system.
  • GPU Skinning fixes, DDS Loading, GPU Lighting
  • VBO rendering + baked lighting
  • Enhanced cubemapping
  • DDS support
  • Studiomodel cubemapping, studiomodel lighting, studiomodel normalmapping.
  • Some fixes.

Okay nerds, but... what does it means exactly? Means, less limitations, more creativity and enhanced content ;)

Here's a comparision picture between the effects ON and OFF. Notice that the HD Textures are still loaded on the OFF section:


The good aspect of it, is that let us add more polys with more detail than before. The bad side? Well, completing a map now takes more additional time.

Having more details with less impact on the performance lets us do massive rendering distances:


Specially as you can see below. Scenes like this just wouldn't be possible before (notice the tiny cars and the HD sky):


These are WIP pictures, meaning it will look even cooler once they are final :)

More improvements also include (remember that we did a clean up and started from scratch, using SDK 2.4):

  • Implementation of FMOD Studio (or FMOD 5) which allow us to have:
  1. Dynamic music system (music switching from stealth/ambience to action/fighting in the same style as SoF 2)
  2. Playing HQ sounds and place them in the world with a pre-defined min and max distance, they can also follow an entity (all weapon sounds follow it's owner : the player)
  3. Reverberation which allow us to imitate quarry, city, arena, hangar, underwater or other environments.
  • Reimplemented and reviewed most of Am's weapons in terms of coding and assets :
  • Sound assets cleaning, they are better organized with better names/paths
  • Unused animations were removed
  • Many other stuff

You can thank Alexander 'Hawk' Bakanov and Joël "Shepard" Troch :)
We also like to take the opportunity to thank those who were involved on our sucessful Dropbox thingy mission

You guys rock!

Also, for the end of this tiny news article, a really close to final church. I noticed you guys loved it sooo... here's an update for your viewing pleasure:

I was playing Paranoia 2 yesterday and remembered that in Arrange Mode you could see your full body when looking down. It was kinda buggy but I still think it's really impressive. Does Arrangement include this feature too and, if so, was it improved? Just curious.

There are plans to include it. Is something I really loved from FEAR and I see this trend on some recent games. We will see once near release.

Yes! Thank you so much for your honest answer SysOp. Coincidentally I was replaying the whole FEAR trilogy + expansions recently. It's hard to believe that something so revolutionary was overlooked for so long on mainstream FPS, only games like Crysis and Call of Juarez really cared about them.
Speaking of which, have you tried GTA V's first person mode? Is absolutely amazing. I certainly hope this becomes a standard.

I took a quick look at GTA V's FPS mode.

While I agree it's cool, I don't think it will be in ArrangeMent, this would require extra work especially on animations.

I <3 F.E.A.R. especially the first one, but the third one didn't "attracted" me much.

A long way to this being a real feel fps game...
Ithe shaders are neat but the are kindly in the way...
I prefer no visual effects on screen...
Theres just nothing realisting on this game...
I like this only because its action !
I hate Next-Gen games like BF4 or COD ...
Im stuck to the classic ! And i love it !
This mod looks cool but it needs an option to close shaders or visual effects...

Hmm... is not really about next gen or old gen or... (lol, we using 15 years old engine) is all about how can we, the developers, transmit to the players the emotions we want them to experience.

And for that, we need some technical tweaks. That's pretty much it.

I'm sorry to say that ARRANGEMENT is NOT working with Half-Life 1.1.1.0 (WON) and Xash3D, I made the tests and tried several workarounds and they all failed.

Only the latest Steam version of Half-Life (legit of course) is working perfectly with ARRANGEMENT.

What do you think about the recent standalone release "Paranoia 2: Savior"?

I highly recommend it to anyone waiting for Arrangement...

It uses the Xash3D Engine & even has ADS (aiming down sights)!

Did you tried Brutal Half-Life, public betas of ARRANGEMENT and PARANOIA on a WON version of Half-Life or the Steam version ?

As for PARANOIA 2 Savior, what issue do you have ? Crash ? Display bug ?
