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.

the widescreen issue, i cant seem to get it. i mean i tried the code you gave me but it didnt affect Ruiner, not even doom. i was thinking, why no use the same system as Hexen Edge of chaos, there you can custom design it. its much easier. any solutions to the problem btw ?

I personally can not check into this problem because I don't have a widescreen moniter. If someone has one and is able to get it work with no problems, please let us know.

To set a custom resolution you have to add r_mode to -1.

You can append the following parameters directly in the .bat file (open it with notepad):
+set r_mode -1 +set r_customHeight 768 +set r_customWidth 1366

Or you can set them in the game console:
r_mode -1; r_customHeight 768; r_customWidth 1366; vid_restart

third person camera should be the default.
In case you get the first person view please write

in the console.

Some small problems I noticed when playing the game:

Whenever I turn on hdr and bloom, the screen flips upside-down

The malwrath does random somersaults

The bo shuriken don't pop up when I use them

Turn off AA to correct the screen upside down problem. (Had this problem many moons ago with Z-Hunter and this was the fix).

1. What type of ATI card are you using?
2. The malwraith is suppose to to do the flips.
3. Are you talking about when you pick up bo shurikens ammo pick hud notification?

Don't know about the ati card, but it's enough to run doom 3 on the high settings.

The shuriken weapon didn't even manifest at all, no hud, no animation, no damage, nothing.

bo shurikens are the ammo used for Onslaught (shotgun) and advocate (auto crossbow).

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

Nice design.
