I first want to mention that this news is a two part post, so make sure to read about our co-op news too. As a note I want to make it clear to everyone CO-OP IS NOT IN THIS BETA. However, we do plan to have it in our next beta which will hopefully be released sometime in early February.
You can grab two different versions of the Beta 0.1 release. One is a windows installer (though I have heard it works under wine). This can be downloaded here
We also have a .rar version for people on linux and/or people who don't want to use an installer. This can be downloaded here.
Here is a list of the main features included in the Beta 0.1 release:
(note: Models for the double barrel and plasmathrower were unfortunately not completed for this release, but will hopefully be in the next one)
Six maps were included in this release. They feature adrenaline pumping action where the monsters come after you instead of you having to go after the monsters.
Features we are thinking about including in the next release:
So give the mod a shot! We'd love to hear any comments and suggestions you have about the mod so feel free to stop and post in our forums or join us in our IRC channel at Irc.gamesurge.net @ channel #lms-mod We really hope you enjoy the Beta 0.1 release :)
We have made a lot of progress in terms of co-op. I plan on posting screens of it in action when I can. Also Burn is working on putting together a video of a few us playing co-op. I'm not 100% sure when he is going to have it completed but I think it should be in the next couple of days at the very longest. I'll be sure to post more news about it when it is ready, so check back soon! Take care.
