Post news Report RSS GoldenEye: Source Beta 4 Release

Beta 4 is now available! Get the links, get the info, get on in-game! Serverhosts are encouraged to update or start supporting the mod and its large playerbase.

Posted by on


Beta 4, the long awaited latest build, is upon us all! Be sure to read all of this update but then hurry so you can be among the first in one of our dozens of servers pre-installed with GoldenEye: Source Beta 4 epic-ness!

GESource.org Server HOTFIX
ModDB.com Server HOTFIX

Clients should download the top category!

Servers
need to download the LARGE server zip, and then patch the HOTFIX right after. This is a hot fix designed for SERVER HOSTS ONLY. This fixes a bug where players drop weapons on round restart. This was causing oddities to occur, and is completely taken care of by serverhosts downloading the normal ZIP then using the HOTFIX over the directory after you install.

We encourage all serverhosts to install this hotfix for the smooth playability of the entire playerbase!

JestServers.com, who since Beta 3 has carried GoldenEye: Source in their server package, is continuing to expand their support with a pledge of some official GES servers across many locations during the launch period of Beta 4. Their rent option is exciting for dedicated players/communities, giving the ability to rent GoldenEye: Source mod servers themselves for fair prices per slot!

We encourage ALL serverhosts willing to supply us with multiple free servers, to send us an email to show your interest and commitment, and for every company that supports the mod like JestServers has, will also get linkbacks and promotion via the news posts from the team. Both the players, and Team GoldenEye: Source appreciate these shows of support!




We are posting this again, since it is an encouraged listen for anyone who loves GoldenEye: Source. It details a 10 month gap in release, what is new in this release you are downloading, and the work we each put in. It sums up so many of the reasons why 5 years of development is so worth all the sleepless nights of toil, and every memory treasured along the way. Its about the present, the future and the past. Why we consistently band together for this common goal, and drive others to attaining the height of their skills, for the end result all goldeneye fans will appreciate.

JcFerggy, overhauled the entire theme, and Killermonkey has helped him organize some great changes to the usability of pages. They are dedicated to giving the pages more depth and interesting information than previously.

The bulk of the wiki will be slowly updated over the coming month or so, but the main pages and the custom theme is done and active right now! Be sure to check out the developer Q&A to hear JcFerggy go over what he has done in greater detail.

To help you nagivate our mod, with either gameplay or options, here are some key links. However, we recommend you check it all out too!

Thanks again for your continued support! Dont forget to check out our youtube page, and any site you see us featured on! Subscriptions, watching and page views all help spread the word of for this release! The more we get noticed, the more players for you to enjoy the mod with! If you think you see a news article on the web we may not be aware of, you are encouraged to post the link on our forums, and feel free to email them about our release date!

Spread the word beta 4 has hit the modding shores!

Our forums are where you get all the coded info, dev blogs and hints from developers as to whats going on daily. Enjoy the mod everyone!

Gratz, finally released!

All of the downloads are corrupt thou and all hosters are very slow.
Can't you upload it to rapidshare, upload.to, etc. ? A lot of people have premium accounts there and downloading will be INSTANT (almost ;)

We get hit with literally thousands of downloads in our first hours, use moddb for complete reliability, I just checked the mirrors, they all work if you have a download manager.

Stop posting that our mirrors are slow/corrupt, get better technology to stream downloads.

Not fun, average graphics and game are completly unfair.
That's not as awesome as N64 Goldeneye.

Dont download it or give it a chance but dont be surprised if you're disapointed.

Sorry you feel that way. You opened it once and made that decision? Doesn't sound like you are a fan of goldeneye at all. I would bet all the money in the world you died a lot and couldn't take it since maybe 10 years ago you beat your friends at it.

You cannot master the PC version in one sitting.

When i try a new mod, i'm waiting for immediate fun. The fact is that a goldeneye game should be fun at the first frag. That's not the case here imho.

I could master it but the game is not appealing enough to get through it.

But i respect the GES team work and people who likes the mod, i'm just sharing my opinion.

It's meant to be fun just for the nostalgia feeling (and our deception at Rare/Nintendo for not bringing it to Xbox LIVE Arcade/Virtual Console).

Either you never liked it at all, or simply don't like (suck at) a good Deathmatch game.

Most of us had lots of fun with this game back in the 90's, I love this mod because it has all the quirks that the original N64 version had, be it the paintball bullets, the manual aiming, the "wierd" explosions, the health meter, almost EVERYTHING the N64 had and more, with HL2 graphics it looks simply amazing, some revamped maps wich feels very nostalgic but almost looks new thanks to Source.

There's simply no reason for not liking/love this mod... I love it =D

-novid in launch options (right-click on the icon > properties > Launch options)

DO NOT click the video, this is a valve bug, press enter and it will not freeze or crash. Or put the no video command to the launch options like kraid suggested! Thanks

speaking of the video when it ends it's supposed to show the main menu,
but when your running at 1920 X 1080 it shows a smaller version,
on top of that the menu bg seems stretched to me i set mat_picmip to -10 and in game everything is fine but the menu is pixelated

The explosions look weird, and what's with the rainbow ****?

Watch a goldeneye64 video on youtube, we recreated them how they are meant to be! We are getting massive compliments on the explosions. Some say they are the best looking ones in a HL2 mod.

"rainbow ****" Must been the server had "paintball mode" which is a cheat from the original where the decals are paintball splats. No issue there.

HOTFIX for serverhosts, the final severfix until GE:S 4.1, is posted up in this thread! SERVERS need this download to make 100% smooth conditions for our thousands of daily players in-game.

Cheers everyone, greatly received release! :D
