v3.6 contains significant engine upgrades; AMC TC can now finally be played with the polymost renderer. The Polymost renderer uses OpenGL and offers better performance, as well as fixing the view shearing effect that produces motion sickness in some players. Doom64hunter and Sangman are responsible for the vast majority of work in getting this up and running, alongside support from the EDuke32 dev team (particularly TerminX, Hendricks266, Pogokeen and StrikerTheHedgefox).
Classic/Software mode support will still be maintained, but the Polymost renderer is the preferred renderer from this release onwards.
There is also additional content, some exciting new cinematics by sebabdukeboss20 and more art overhauls as well. More GUIs have been replaced with design work by AliCatGamer as well. Finally, there is a new map starring Alien Armageddon's Bombshell built by Micky C that can be played in Episode 3. To find the level, start your journey by defeating the Choasphere level, and ensuring you have the paranormal research division up and running. Once beaten, Bombshell can be chosen in the AMC base and played as any other character!
The v3.5 Redux version contains a massive art overhaul of the vast majority of enemies and weapons by sebabdukeboss20, as well as brand new GUIs by AliCatGamer; Doom64hunter also lent a hand with art duties. It also contains new content in the form of 3 new enemies for Episode 3's Egypt section, the re-casting of Rusty_Nails and Geoffrey by Major Tom and Eddie Teach respectively, a new addition to the boat cutscene in Episode 2, and new lines for Sang after a certain story section, as well as additional tweaks and improvements to existing maps like Micky Begins and Dis Base. There are also new lines for Zaxtor, Mikko and Micky.
The story premise is that you play as the AMC squad, a task force formed to protect the galaxy from powerful threats in the spirit of Marvel's Avengers. These threats include aliens, demons, fanatical cultists, mercenaries, and even evil regimes. You go on a globetrotting and interstellar adventure and fight in varied and detailed settings, ranging from snowy mountain ranges to lush jungles, from urban city levels to expansive high-tech moon bases.
You get to play as 10 different unique characters, which can be dynamically switched in between missions, each with their own unique arsenal, abilities and personalities. Also unique to the mod is that you can find collectables, upgrades, additional weaponry and more, with your progress being stored completely without the need for manual saves. In addition, levels are selected through the use of a world map, and can be replayed at any time.
The people behind the AMC TC Episode three are James Stanfield, Michael Crisp, Sangluss, Cedric 'Zaxtor Znort' Lutes, Loke, and Snowfall (with certain maps using segments built by Highwire and Jenz/amaka) Artwork is by sebabdukeboss20, AliCatGamer, and Doom64hunter.
As of Version 3.6 and up, the AMC TC uses a modified EDuke32 engine, which makes a number of changes that could not be implemented through CON scripts easily, or at all. It also prevents certain crashes that occur due to the large number of art tiles that are used in the game.
EDuke32 and Build are licensed under GPL 2.0 and the BUILD license, which we have included in this download.
AMC TC pushes Eduke32 and Build to the very limits; you will need a much more powerful computer than the original games to run at a stable framerate; 2GBs of RAM and an i5 at the very least is recommended as well. If you're having framerate issues, try lowering the resolution.
