XDM3038: quick news

News 0 comments

Hi everyone!

This is a quick update, mostly to let you know this project is pretty much alive! After release 3037 I got lots of bug reports (duh! where've you been before!), requests and suggestions. But since stability is the first priority, I go bug-hunting first.

DM Cliff20000

Tried to make players pay more attention to the MOTD by using a little delay before allowing the window to close. It couldn't just start working of course (shot 1).

DOM SnowFields0000

Weapon system needed a major retouch as I tried to implement client-side code. There's also a nice new feature: on ladder you cannot shoot, but should be able to change weapon (take off ladder with something else in your hands). Also carried weapons should be inaccessible to "garbage collector", black holes, network clients. And on top of that, I have no reliable way (in standard HL mechanism) to track destroy items that were added by default (like crowbar in multiplayer) but were not accepted by the player. But if they were, it's hard to track their existence to not to drop them when player dies. Screenshot #2 demonstrates that.

DM LostCity0000a

But the real nightmare starts when network testing begins. Monsters in HL were NOT meant to be played with online. And beams. And trains. And everything that do something besides standing in one place. Although XHL uses far less traffic than HL does, these delicate situations do happen. Shot #3.

double trouble0000

And playtesting. Lost and lots of it. I feel like I'm constantly being trolled: by exceptionally bad mappers, by outstandingly stupid HL bugs and limits, by bots. :( Also by monsters, as barnacles now eat all projectiles I shoot :( There were more than 4000 multiplayer maps gathered in my collection. And we've tested ALL of them! >:)

By the way, ATI video cards are the WORST for Half-Life. More likely, their drivers. I hate AMD for adopting that shit. But whn it comes to CPUs, AMD rocks! Check out this map compilation graph:

xhl mp compilation opteron

A very huge map is being compiled here. HLVIS (from VHLT) uses all NUMA cores, which is very nice. As you can see, 24 TIMES faster than single-threaded!! HLRAD used only one NUMA node which is 6 cores in my case. Anyway, very cool thing to observe.

Next time I'll try to post the changelog. It's really big this time!

PS: If anyone has FMOD 3.63 linux SDK, I could make XHL completely cross-platform. But right now - no music, sorry.

>> will you update the model of the .357 Magnum
Suggest a replacement, and it's quite possible!

We're currently working hard to make the next release ASAP.
I was also asked to make a translocator, but I need a model for it too.
(somehow "Reply" doesn't work right on moddb)

Hey X, i just wanna tell you than me and my friends love this mod because we play very often Half-Life and UT99 and this mod is perfect. And one question, will you update the model of the .357 Magnum, because is like the only model not updated in the mod, not like im complaining, but it will be nice, thanks for this awesome mod.

I love that there alot of maps and weapons to play with but it's no fun when there is no multiplayer servers and the bots are broken.

Oh well... I thought I'd be able to finish next release until the MOTY contest, but I'm stuck without weapon animations, monsters code (waiting for someone to finish it) and CoOp maps.
Good news is: the razor blade launcher works even better than in U/UT! Really. Don't let bots have it.

Full of memeshit, broken bots, riddled with bugs, ugly textures and models, terrible music. Don't waste your time.
