Cheers & welcome back!

Work has started on reviving the Ruiner. I am currently piecing together the new website for it and mountains of content needed. The website will function more than just a simple site like in the past with basic info. It will feature a wealth of content on the back story, mythology and social network aspects. The design and social aspect are finished. It is now digging up and editing in content that was never shown before. Additionally I am creating many new pieces of art for it. Once enough has been created for a launch, focus will then start on the webcomic and setting a release date. Even after launch, the site will continue to grow weekly with new features, articles and strips. The comic is being drawn with digital viewing in mind.

Once everything is full gear and running smooth, we'll start to talk about the upcoming game some more. The basics have been laid out for it and it is my hope this will see its first release in by the end of next year.

I have one big problem, the mod works but the problem comes from the resolution. I load the game. It starts me out in the forest but I was in 1st person mode, remembering that this was supposed to be played in thirdperson, I changed the viewpoint but the character is in the middle of the screen instead of on the left of the screen like in the screenshots. I thought it was a resolution issue so I went to change the resolution from 640xsomething to 1600x900(or 1200, don't remember now) and reloaded the mod. I've noticed however that it doesn't make the change. Any fixes

This is going to sound off the wall but I want help running Ruiner... on my smartphone :)

Through the android port of the dante engine, packaged in an app called Diii4A, I can run many mods and maps at a decent framerate with all the features of the Doom 3 engine present. The only mod I'm having no luck with is Ruiner. I get an error stating that getEntityHealth is an unknown event (doom_events.script, line 16). I don't know why this error is popping up on my little android install, the android port is compiled from the latest patched version of Doom 3. I even checked, 1.3.1.1304

I know that this mod only needs the base Doom 3 base as I am running it happily on my main desktop. It's just bugging me that it is throwing script errors on the phone.

i do not know anything about running it on android. Ruiner has higher system requirements than default Doom 3. Your welcome to poke around the source code and see where the conflict could be coming from. The mod needed to be started with a shortcut and not from the mod menu in order to work correctly back in the day.

So did the 2014 version ever get made ? This seems like a very enjoyable mod.

no it did happen. There were many technical road blocks that came up very early in development. Then some massive changes in my life happened which caused it to be stopped. As they say, you never know what could happen one day.

Impressive. There aren't much 3rd person shooters running with id tech 4.

Nice design.
