Blog RSS Feed Report abuse Latest News: Shooting up monsters in 60fps!

21 comments by Magic_Nipples on Mar 19th, 2015

Found out I had another week to before my college assignments are due. So lets look at what my procrastination has done so far!

Gameplay video in 60fps

One of the pros of my new laptop is being able to record smooth, high-res video with little to no lag. YouTube also added a new feature that allows video to play as 60fps now, and I wanted to take advantage of that:

(remember when YouTube added support for 30fps video? good times...)

I've been working on that area on and off for almost a year now, and it has changed so much from what I originally started from. It was originally just going to be a remake of the alpha cafeteria, but complications with the atrium glass, and level changes forced me to trash that idea. I then thought about incorporating the area from the Half-Life box art into the game in some manner and this is how it turned out.

Two other things to note is the video isn't true 1080p. I recorded the gameplay at 720p, and only bumped up the video resolution because YouTube wouldn't render a 720p 60fps video for some reason. Also you can here Schism by Tool in the background. That was just me getting bored with having the standard Half-Life soundtrack in the backgrounds, and wanted something different. And I like Tool.

New menu backgrounds

If you had your eyes open for the first few seconds of the video, you can see what appears to be a hl2 style background map. Well if you guessed that then you are correct! Xash allows for map backgrounds for the menu. While it isn't chapter specific like hl2, the feature is very much appreciated, and we plan on taking full advantage of it in the mod.

That about wraps up this small update. Please check out our forums if you haven't already. And stay tuned for future updates!

You guys are ******* idiots. This mod is going to die because of your childish ********. I have been watching this mod since it was posted here. I used to talk to harron all the time before he became a drama queen. Cut the ****. Get your team back together. This drama **** isn't worth killing this mod.

You might be a little misinformed. The team is pretty much back together. Harron is taking another break for now, but he will be back soon. I will have a new update going more in depth with what happened, and what the future holds.

So... The mod was leaked by a former developer, and everyone went batshit over it? Seems like a normal history of a big and popular mod.

We will have no more arguments here on who leaked the mod. I am waiting for an admin to get back to me after he finishes his investigation on the matter.

You morons. Guess who got banned too?

Aka Harron didn't do it. ModDB staff banned both of the accounts probably because Trippy was too much of an idiot to use a proxy when logging into Harron's account. This kind of **** happening is why I'm out of the game in terms of these kinds of projects.

I'm currently talking to an admin on the issue. I don't know if they banned them just to be sure, but they will let me know what they find after investigating the situation.

Who taunts someone who apparently doesn't have a strong password? Someone who is probably ******* someone over but it going about it stupidly, that's who.
