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.

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.

I have the same problem. When the first time I played this mod,it´s perfect, with third person gameplay, but when I played the second time, the third person view disappear and turns in first person view (include a new and save games). Why this happened? It´s a serious bug of this mod ?
And the authors their have abandoned the mod ?
We want answers about this and a resolution of this strange bug

Please help! I have an ERROR: Error: file script/ai_monster_demon_cherub.script, line 272: Unknown value "canleap"
What can I do with this?

"canleap" is not a known variable for either vanilla or Ruiner scrips.
You probably have custom assets in your "base" folder, which is a bad thing.
Check your base folder and remove custom stuff.

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

Nice design.
