Colour Grading and Headhunting!

(Renegade X is a tactical FPS mod for Unreal Tournament 3. We are currently porting the mod to the Unreal Development Kit, after which, Renegade X will become a standalone game. We will first release a short singleplayer campaign, followed by the multiplayer in a later version.)

Hey guys, it's Totem Arts again, just here to share a small update and some new pictures. Things have been progressing nicely over at Renegade X - "Operation Black Dawn" is in its testing and polishing stage, there has been a lot of progress on cinematics, multiplayer preparations are being made, lots of art is being produced, and we are constantly finding ways to improve and modernize Renegade X.

Since the June UDK release, the team has put some effort in raising Renegade X's visuals up a bar. Particularly, the new Colour Grading system has made Renegade X on the UDK look like a completely new game. We're very happy with the results on Black Dawn, and we were too excited to keep the following images away from the public. Check em out!

Looking for Talent!

The popular Unreal Tournament 3 total conversion mod Renegade X is in the porting process to the UDK, and we are looking for some fresh talent! Renegade X is a tactical First and Third Person Shooter with Real Time Strategy elements - Singleplayer and Multiplayer! With unique gamemodes, exotic level environments, and a plethora of different weapons, vehicles, characters, and superweapons, Renegade X
is an upcoming game you wouldn't want to miss.

There are two unique factions that players can fight for: the noble Global Defense Initiative (GDI), a UN global military force seeking to eliminate terrorism and encourage progress, and the mysterious Brotherhood of Nod, an ancient cult, secret society and globalized network of paramilitary terrorists worldwide. Each team has its own array of arms and structures and tactic styles. The Renegade X team consists of 20 talented and friendly collaborators from all over the world. We have a range of different skills and have been enthusiastically dedicated to the project for a number of years. The team has enjoyed a good relationship with several big industry companies, and several of our members have attained industry jobs after working for Renegade X. With over 40,000 downloads and 6 awards, the Renegade X beta, for Unreal Tournament 3, is available for download here:

I don't have words to describe this, this is sooooo amazing, you have made this look like AAA game quality.

I WISH i have a time to offer my knowledge in Particle ( FX ) design, or just be a part of your great team.

I wish best of luck to your project, well done!

Dude, AAA? Screw this 0815 ****. THIS is what AAA should look like! Polished and purely amazing. Indi stuff is way better than the AAA stuff, in my opinion!

What exactly do you mean by "war-themed voices"? It's not exactly clear what you meant (at least to me).

Voice acting that is suitable for a battlefield environment. Realistic, loud, somewhat throaty, and most importantly, good recording equipment.

In other news, why does our news barely hit the second page every time? Difficult to attract new fans when the news doesn't hit page 1.

By "realistic", I assume you also entail, to a certain degree, swearing. No offence intended, but if I have to swear as a voice actor for Regenade X, I don't think I'll consider the job. Not that I mind swearing in video games all that much, but I'd much prefer NOT being the voice actor uttering said swearing. ;)

Also, I don't know if this would help, but you could request the folks at ModDB put an announcement regarding the game on the home page (e.g. the 'featured' box-thingy, for lack of the name of the page element). I think, given you mentioned job openings in this news article, you'd have a decent, if not good, chance of getting 'featured' billing.

When I said realistic, I did not mean swearing. I too do not like swearing in video games and Renegade X will have none. By realistic, I meant not exaggerated and not cartoony.

The Featured Box on ModDB I think is exclusively for releases, interviews, and big news. The problem is, with the past few updates, it has taken ModDB 2 days to hit 'approve' and by then, many more news articles bury ours.

Oh and hey Fobby, I dont know if you can answer on this or not, but I know you'll remain dedicated to Renegade X for a long time onwards, and I just want to ask: Is there any chance for a DX11 upgrade, or simillar, in the future after the game is more or less "done"?

I tought UDK/ UT3 is using DirectX 9 and 10. Well basically there is no suchs thing as DirectX11 only an improve version of DirectX 10.1, that's what i read in Microsoft Magazine...

Right and wrong. UT3 does not have DX11, no, but: The Unreal Development Kit was "recently" upgraded with DirectX 11 support.

I do not know... that is a VERY OLD video card. I remember my MX 4000 series card... it was terrible. The MX series for some reason (especially the 4000 set) was not considered to be 'up to par'. From MY experience I would say it couldn't handle the pictures I'm seeing above. But I could be wrong :P

Google the card or something and find out more about it.

I last remembered my ATi Radeon 9800 can barely play UT3 ( with low setting and lag a little ). I think is best get a new one.

This is going to be 'stand-alone'? Does that mean it can be played with JUST the mod?

Yes, it will be standalone.
