Beta 1.0 Is now out! Plus new screens for all to enjoy!

Posted by on

This beta is just a single map, its about 15 mins of gameplay. It will give you all a vague idea of what it will look and feel like in its final stage. So if you want to join the beta test please drop me a email at string.puppets(AT)gmail(DOT)com and you will get the password from me.

Just so everyone is clear, this is a mod for SMOD40, what im doing is making an independent release that will only (eventually) need HL2. This will include new models etc made by myself. This is a beta it is not a complete game, part of the reason i released this was to test it on other machines and to see how well the game works. I forgot to add the mod information in the read me (due to me trying to release by a set deadline) so sorry for any confusion. Kudos to teams like SMOD: Tactical and SMOD for making a stable platform in which i was able to create something like this.

You can find the download here Moddb.com

You wont be able to install without the password! All beta testers will get there name in the credits =D!

New media also posted these screens include the POV that GAUNTLET will have

Here is one of the piccies:

It's SMOD... The binary's are the same as the latest version of SMOD.
And they even have the shader in the folder. "game_shader_generic_smod.dll"

Good job stealing work.

When I used SMOD as a base for my project(SMOD: Tactical), I gave credit to all the CSS customer modelers, skinners, animators, UVers, people who helped me with the model hacks, ect. I even kept SMOD in the title.

You however have not.
Give credit where credit is due.

He didn't flame. He was merely telling you what you HAVE to do. If you don't there is a slight chance that you can get sued.

lol before i get any bad rep this was based on smod and the credits have been updated for beta 2.0 in a rush to get it out there (and yes i did rush half the files aren't even protected by the password lol) i didnt put in the credits. SO there you go there are reasons for things, i not stealing anyones work here, smod is just a more powerful base to get things started off.

Sorry for any confusion.
