Gauntlet is now looking to change! New code, new staff, new direction!

Posted by on

Hello everyone!

Just letting you all know, I have decided to stop using SMOD as the code base for GAUNTLET. Instead I'll be coding with source from the ground up. I aim to do this because of a few reasons.

1: This will give me complete control over the process and I wont have to ask for permissions etc when it comes to the final release + future releases!

2: Things like player lives and scoreboard need to be created from scratch, as stated above I don't what anybody getting confused with who created what.

3: This will give me a chance to learn new things, that is what modding is about!

4: If this all works out for the best I will be able to create prefab and entities that players can use to make there own custom content for the GAUNTLET game ie maps etc.

With this in mind, there could be a small delay for beta 2.0 but you will all have new things to test, this is all very exciting and I cant wait to see where this project ends up going! And as of now I'll be looking for people to join Zombie Boss Interactive and help out with the GAUNTLET project. Right now all I need are some talented programmers to both help and teach me new things with the project. I am very serious about making this project right to the end! So if you wish to join me either send me a personal message or email me and we will start talking about your experiences etc.

Now on to news about the mapping files, I have started to re-define the first map for GAUNTLET, and attempting to make pickups work for me. Just starting out small and getting the players to pick up weapons with a set amount of ammo. This is harder then it looks, because there are so many variables that I need to make in order for this to work.

Players will walk into a room, triggering a trigger that I have created, this will then start a timer that creates random drops that the player can pick up! The problem I am having is getting this to work. I'm sure there is a way for this to happen i have just yet to find it!

Again thanks for all the support you guys have given me! I plan to make this mod not just for my own personal development but to help out the community and give them something different this year. Again thanks to the SMOD community for the help over the past month but for my mod and my own personal development I'm not going to be using SMOD anymore!

Thanks for reading!
