Well it it all happened yesterday.

I was talking with the creator of the Bugstompers. And he sayed he likes my ideas and approved the mod but there is one small problem.

HE LOST THE SOURCE CODE !!!

Now i have to make the mod from scratch.I mite as well try out all those popular mod engines.I don't know which to choose so I'll let you decide :).

  1. Spirit of half-life (Makes coding much easier so i mite program better weapons and stuff)
  2. Half-life FX ( Well many nice GFX of course)
  3. Paranoia engine (The same as HL-FX)
  4. Xash ( Adds monitors and mirrors like in the source engine)
  5. Make your own ! You lazy bastards !

Just post the number of the option you like in the comments section.

I vote 5. I'm starting from scratch, and you can, too. Actually, you could use the HypernovA engine, when it's done. I'll keep working on it, and hopefully add reflections, monitors, and all kinds of other stuff!

I doubt it's getting closer to spirit more like HLFX or xash. Well spirit is open source so we mite merge and make an evil mutant child that we will call the "Bugstompers engine"

Didn't I just make a particle engine in one day? Give me a chance. Besides, does spirit isn't so awesome. I have movewith functions, custom health, particle effect and model changing. That's basically what spirit is besides a few effects, which I can do. And with time, It might be as good as HLFX. Who knows? But using your own work always is better.

Well spirit is not just an engine it's a extenuation of coding but I'll give you a Chance :)

I could vote for number 3, I love the effects of it and even my crappy PC can still play smoothly.

If you wanna go eye-candy, you know what mods to use.

But remember little padawan: visual improvements doesn't guarantee a sucessful mod :P

I've maked up my mind. I will do the #5 option. And Paranoia uses OpenGl32.dll which is a bad DLL ( You might get banned from steam if you use it )
