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.

found the problem if you run the mod with the shortcut that it comes with instead of going into doom3 and loading the mod that way it should give you third person off the bat.

Its a strange problem we didn't have any time during development of the mod. The cvar pm_thirdperson 1 is set in the code by default. It looks like we will need to hard code further beyond just a cvar.

One major flaw I noticed was that I couldn't pick my sword back up if I dropped it. The only way to get another sword was to find one that was set up in a map as a pickup.

Since the Icon of Sin was the final boss in this mod what else are you gonna have in the next release of Ruiner? I mean that was a pretty awesome boss, what else do you have in mind?

You can pick up a dropped sword... its just a bit tricky compared to the other weapons. The ! icon will appear on the screen when you can pick it up. Next time around I'll look into making the collision box bigger for the dropped sword.

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

Nice design.
