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.

How do you use the running zombies? I would very much enjoy using them for my mod :)

Just double checked this. You can find the running zombies in my weapons pack. These are compatable with the default zombies and D3. Should be easy to extract and use the contents.

your welcome to use them. Browse through the pak files to find the def files and new animations for the zombies. the defs are set to randomly pick out one of their run or walk animations constantly. It has been awhile, but I am sure the animations do work with vanilla zombies type. They compatable with the zombie types which share bodies and heads.

I'm having some trouble with resolutions here, my native resolution is 1920x1080, inside DOOM III and other normal mods in first person it works great setting custon resolution in DoomConfig.cfg but when setting any resolution here (including the supported ones) the camera is kind of moved and it looks a bit odd, like if my screen was bigger, and it focuses on only one corner. So this way I only see a very narrow character model and cannot fully see the hud on the left, just can spot part of the health bar. The crosshair is on the mid-top of the screen and it's difficult to aim. Is there any solution for this?

never found out why this happens on some people's machines. Make sure you are starting Ruiner through a shortcut and not from doom3 itself.

Development ended quite some time ago. The team disbanded from various reasons. Source release is still planned.

There are also no first peron models or animations for the weapons. It was extra work we didn't have the man power for and the goal was always a pure thirdperson experience. they were also removed to help quite a bit with memory.

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

Nice design.
