Welp, it's time for me to improvise another one of these!

The move to Xash

For about as long as I was a part of this mod, We've have debated if we should use Steam or Xash. Both had a pretty equal amount of advantages, and disadvantages. But after a good old game breaking update from Valve, I could no longer get any build of shaft to play on Steam without the game randomly crashing. Now, good news is Shaft plays on Xash really well. The old won style menu system, the better rendering shadows, sprites, and hud make the game look much better. Now the weapons were broke to high hell, but copying the Xash weapon code over seems to have solved that issue.

The gameplay video

I'm just going to link you to it, and talk about it below the video.

I said about two months ago I would get a video for you showing a few minutes of gameplay. Well, when you have a job giving you near 45 hours a week, and college classes to worry about. You start to have less time with your personal projects. Also we had that move ove to the Xash thing in between all of this, and I wasn't going to show old footage of a game that just recently moved to another engine.

MOTY 2014

While I don't believe we have enough people to get us first place, having you guys vote for this mod would be highly appreciated! It might even help get this day one release out faster!

That's all I got for ya now.

i have always had issues with Xash, so will it include an "auto-installer" of some sort? because whenever i try it, it always comes out with errors (that i am like, 99% are due to my stupidity, and not my computer)

Is the viewmodels going to be on the right (like the 1997 alpha) or in the middle like quake and the 1998 demos?

Mostly likely in the middle to stay with the 1998 demos. We still can release them with different origins, alpha weapons, and other little packs like that.

I have a question. How different will the Xen chapters be? Compared to the final product?

Xen is still a long ways off. We also have a pretty big lack in photos of that area other than those 2 maps found in the hls leak.

Thanks for the answer. I wish you good luck with Xen, as, apparently, it's going to be the most difficult part.

I have other 2 questions:

1) What video renders will Shaft use?
2) Did you find a way to make the battery deplete from right to left instead of up-down?

We are using Xash, so it will run in open gl. You can turn off all the filters to give the feel of playing on software.
And no. I never found a way to get the battery to draw that way.

Is anyone is up to vote the greenlight page?

Its a Greenlight concept page, meaning even if you get votes, you won't be going to Steam, Concept pages are used to create a fanbase for your product.

I don't really see why your going to your ModDB audience to build an audience for Shaft when you guys already have an audience here.
