I've uploaded two new things to the download site. The first is a fully patched version of Korsakovia, so this is the one to grab if you don't already have the mod. Do the normal unzipping thing into your SourceMods folder.

The second is the patch itself, which you can apply to existing downloads of Korsakovia. It's a much smaller download, so opt for that if you have already grabbed the game once.

Thanks to everyone who mailed in suggestions and support - it's really appreciated, and hopefully we'll be announcing a new project soon.

the lightning affect isnt quite visceral enough needs to really affect the player plus it looks kinda corny but the light and sort of shaking screen is perfect make the shadow things not bleed zombie blood and it is looking good to me (it already looks good anyway)

Yep, looking for a coder right now to take care of the blood (have a plan for what happens when you actually hit one of the things...) Is it the lightning effect in the video in the room with the corpse that you think isn't working? It's hard to balance that with the other places it gets used, so it'd be good to know.

well i think it is partially that it doesn't give you the felling of being surrounded in a light that is wherever you look almost like its following you it would be extremely hard to do that so dont spend to much time trying to do that but i still think the electricity looks to dark make it brighter but try not to have it light up the room although that may be impossible i have no idea

Thanks - I *think* we're OK for models, but will keep you in mind.

Two years ago, when I bought my pc, your Dead Esther mod was also with Penumbra, and Portal, 3 of the most original uses of the first person perspective I had never seen. (Non asociate "to carry a weapon for killing and follow the path until the end of the game) Silent Hill 4 also used it when you are in The Room.

I also prefer playing Morrowind and Thief Deadly Shadow or Hitman in first perspective, as it helps (in my opinion) to experiment higher inmersion when you go into a cave or dungeon or investigate in a desktop.

So for me,it is nice to see you are working again on a new project and also, to see I am no the only one with these fps concepts in mind, as I can read in resolution magazine about Dan Pinchbeck thoughts about the genre.

I guess a lot of old fps school gamers, are a little bit tired of clonic, scripted & lineal fps and only one end games. I guess that is why I prefer to reinstall Deus Ex, Alien Vs Predator 2 STALKER SoC or System Shock 2, better than try Blacksite:Area 51.

From The Chinese Room's site, this about their new project. Codenamed Blackout on there, but not updated in a while, so presumably the same thing --

"This mod is designed to investigate how players cope when the normal anthropomorphic cues attached to agents are removed. Put simply, just about every agent every used in a game is anthropomorphic in some way. They are humanoid or, at the least, animal. This gives the player a huge range of cues and assumptions they can work from. I've written about this process of basically creating the sense of a mind and attaching to an agent with minimal cues for the 2008 Philosophy of Computer Games conference. In philosophical terms, it's usually called adopting the Intentional Stance - assuming there are mental states and beliefs going on in the agent presented to you.

Blackout rips these away by turning off the rendering of Half LIfe 2 agents and replacing them with a particle effect- either a heat shimmer or a rolling black cloud of smoke (a bit like the 'monster' in the TV show Lost). Additionally, like Conscientious Objecter, we are taking away the player's gun. On top of this, a script is being drafted which outlines a scenario which owes much to Day of the Triffids - unknown entities are on the loose, they seemed to posses some rudimentary intelligence but their motives are unknown.

Blackout should work halfway between Dear Esther and a traditional game - including much more of what you can call gameplay, but retaining a high level of ambiguity and abstraction."
