Wolf Tactics Gone posted by eyeronik on Sunday 8th June 2003, 12:43

WT has indeed ended development. The main reason says it didnt take off, but rtcw has never been extremely popular so I dont know what numbers they were expecting but if they ported it to ET it might get more, but theyve given up on the old girl so what can you do. Best of luck with future projects, at least they enjoyed making it and we enjoyed playing it, thanks for a great mod!

What else but.. posted by eyeronik on Thursday 5th June 2003, 12:17

Enemy T is taking the world by storm! I think many of us are genuinely surprised by how popular its proving, sure in top 10 most played but not up into the top 3! Its been quite the revelation and whats more its justified, If you havent yet downloaded it, I suggest you do. I dont think its killed off wolfenstein, because that would never get as popular as ET has become and some of that is because ET is free, but I dont think we are losing out and for me personally I prefer ET to rtcw, but many of us will because we have probably tired a bit of rtcw, but we havent lost anything just gained a new quality game. Just a shame about the sounds...

Also map wise ET has some great maps, I was really impressed with oasis (I think thats its name) the amount of time some of them must of took to make and the hard work that went into them must of been immense. Just check out the level of detail on the maps and hats off to the scripter I certainly dont envy doing that job! If you wish to visit the guys who made ET, check out thesplash damage site.

Back to surface news, you can now find an ET editor download link (gtk 1.3.8 beta) on the files page and I updated some other pages.

Textures posted by eyeronik on Wednesday 14th May 2003, 09:49

Ive made a few textures a while ago and not got round to making anymore so i thought id release just these few that i made. You can see examples and a download on the files page. Ive named it sf3_e1a to confuse you! Only joking, there were originally two other texture packs but one was then turned into propaganda posters and the other burned in hell, this one starts at sf3. Surface pack 3. Most of them are 512x512 and two are a little largers at 1024x512. Im sure you all wanted to know that stuff.

Check out examples and download on the files page

Go on then, here is the example pic:

ET expected next week posted by eyeronik on Tuesday 13th May 2003, 06:45

ET is apparently to be released next week, is this a business "next week" meaning whenever or a real next week, who knows. However it should be sooner rather than later. Lets hope that that test squashed some bugs! One thing I wonder is how many people clicked the ">" play button on the image with the antenna in the limbo menu, pretty funny what you hear

In site news, recently we were visited by a bot and it attacked our forums. Its the same bot that is attacking many vb boards on the net, mainly due to people not upgrading their forums (oops!) from 2.2.8, the board is now version 2.3.0 and those bots cant register now as there is image verification when you sign up. Also they were advert bots only so dont worry about your email addresses suddenly being attacked (some people were worried about this understandably)

Day of Defeat v1.0 out! posted by eyeronik on Saturday 3rd May 2003, 02:22

Day of Defeat v1.0 has been released to download for halflife. The first one i downloaded had an IO error, it was the one from jolt uk so dont get that, probably best to get only the official mirrors listed. Guess what though, yes ive downloaded one from the official mirror list and it again gives an IO error. fab, dont think ill bother again, doubt i could stand the graphics anyway...ah just had a go finally and it seems pretty good if you can stand the graphics, be good on doom 3 engine though.

Crusading on posted by eyeronik on Thursday 1st May 2003, 01:30

The Great Crusade has updated with new screenshots of some of the new weapon models they have made, fully skinned and in game of the mp40, sten and mp44. Not only that but they have two avi files of the reload animations for the sten and mp40.

Also it looks like the gc mod has iron sight style guns coded in. A small quote from their site:

quote:
The mod will feature a number of realism factors around the weapons' behaviour including aiming from the gun sights, recoil and shoulder shock effect, crosshair bobbing effect caused by hand unstability and player's movement/footsteps, as well as special accuracy modifiers depending on whether you're using the gun's sights or standing or crouching. Special attention is given to the real characteristics of weapons, such as the Rate of Fire. Aiming from gun sights is achieved via importing new weapon entities (eg. alternative fire mode) and animations.

New Site Design


2003/04/30 13:36 by eyeronik

As you can see this is a new design. Anywho not much content has changed, I noticed some tutorials were bogged down with too many explainations so ive updated them ones, incase your wondering they were Explosive Objectives, ladders, lighting, Rotating Doors, Sky, Sliding Doors, Sounds, Texturing, Aas files.

I hope you like the new site design anyway, also we have a new link button. There is one slight change the map of the week wasnt being updated weekly so its now map of the moment, if you notice any errors please let me know, oh and the maps page isnt finished yet, sorry.

Also I finally have a digital camera and Ive actually managed to make three decent textures! yes three! so when ive reached about 10 or 20 ill release some.

Wolf Tactics is out!

Hell has frozen over posted by eyeronik on Thursday 24th April 2003, 10:41

I looked out of my window today and saw pigs flying. Yes its true, halflife 2 is being made! Theres an actual picture up!!! in game too apparently. Looks cartoony though and I personally think its going to fail due to the fact its taken so long to make, so many other games have failed, who knows, lets hope not.

An actual halflife 2 image not just a crowbar

ET Test Out posted by eyeronik on Thursday 24th April 2003, 01:55

The enemy territory test is out!

Download from wolfensteinx
Download from Blueyonder
or try Full official mirror listing

I just played it myself and it was really good, comes across as more realistic since the sounds are better than rtcw i think. All seems good, anit been able to play on a decent server yet mind, jolt and blueyonder rather stindgy with public servers these days, mainly due to cs having 500 billion. Update, theres now 4 jolt publics! Obviously they listened to me and got more, blueyonder have only 1 still, oh well....

rtcw mod roundup posted by eyeronik on Wednesday 9th April 2003, 09:41

Lets take a look at where the rtcw mod scene is heading at the current time!





wolf tactics

looks as if there statement of "its heading out the door" means it forgot to get its coat and will be a bit later, a few months later.

No mans Land

last update nearly a month ago and that was just to welcome new members, any actual progress update was 5 months ago.

crisis 51

Recently posted a need members, has no coder or update for a week since that post. looks like its going nowhere unless someone rescues it, perhaps lassie?

Sinister Awakening

You probably havent even heard of it since it needs awakening (-oh dear) last updated october 2002. Probably never see that one.

Greatcrusade

One of the more appealing mods but its hard to tell how its going, usually does large updates, last one 3 weeks ago, not much happening on forums either.

wildwest

The only released mod to date and not exactly popular, needs to be more polished and professional to pull in more of a crowd.

russianfront

Its hard to tell where they are, still updating though but who knows, like all the rtcw mods there's no progress meters.

Warm

last updated 5 or so months ago. If you read in the forums the leaders have said the mod is dead, shame they never bothered to post on the main site, ive been going there to check for updates for ages!

Day of Defeat posted by eyeronik on Friday 4th April 2003, 02:14

The popular mod dod is a month away from retail release, surprisingly its stand alone, its also probably the only game you could sell these days using a 5 year old engine, it just goes to show how good the playability is. Check out the preview and screenshots on gamespy

Wolf Tactics posted by eyeronik on Friday 4th April 2003, 01:47

So it wasnt an aprils fools joke after all, wolf tactics is near release! they even have some map screenshots for you to take a peak at if you head on down to their maps page. Also of interest is a classes page, which shows pictures of the classes. Its all very tfc and it would be great to play that style on rtcw. Not all the pictures of the classes are in just yet but some are and they look very professional and well made. Id guess this mod will be released in two weeks or something unless it has some bug hiccups, but you know what its like.

wolftactics site (note that only by going to the maps page linked on there main page can you get the link to the classes page as they havent updated the other pages as yet)

ATI Radeon 9800 PRO now Shipping posted by eyeronik on Thursday 3rd April 2003, 04:49

The apparent worlds fastest graphics card is now sailing at sea or rather its shipping! It doesnt specify if this is worldwide but it probably is, so expect to see the cards available in shops in the near future.

quote:
The RADEON 9800 PRO VPU is the only visual processor to run at full speed and full precision all of the time, providing excellent performance and visual quality without compromise. Numerous positive reviews and awards from leading online and print technology publications have generated huge demand for the graphics boards. A limited quantity pre-order campaign on ATI?s web site (www.ati.com) saw excellent demand for the RADEON 9800 PRO, selling out in a matter of days. Products for customers who pre-ordered RADEON 9800 PRO boards begin shipping today.

Facility Shuts Down at Six posted by eyeronik on Thursday 3rd April 2003, 01:51

Six has hit a brick wall with his map mp_facility and decided to release it as a tutorial, or rather "how not to make a map". I loaded the beast up there myself, it takes a while, once you get in you can see its an ambitious project to say the least, the problem is the layout has not been thought out in advance, also you can see he hasnt made it using caulk then texturing, because you can see a few faces uncaulked so that wont of helped, but its the sheer scale and layout that is the problem.

Jolt cancels WildWest server posted by eyeronik on Wednesday 2nd April 2003, 09:25

Jolt uk has sadly removed the wild west mod server it had running, ive played there myself and it was fairly popular really, its a shame considering the amount of wasted cs servers they run that are always empty, but im guessing its because wild west now requires you to rename the "main" folder to "main2" to avoid crashing, something the wild west mod team really need to sort out.

The total number of servers for wild west now reads approx five, rather dissapointing, but strangely enough the wild west theme doesnt seem as popular as you might think, i remember a high quality quake 3 mod of the same theme which was very unpopular, which is a massive shame, so get out there and have a go on wild west mod! I suggest watching for a few dollars more before doing so to really get you in the mood!

Apparently it wasnt just an april fools joke on the wolf tactics website, the mod will be released soon, unless its another april fools joke, i think as far as those go the best one i saw was that levelord was going to kuwait to do some photos for cs zero or gfx artists "teaming up with aol" caught a few people out. But anyway keep your eyes peeled because apparently wolf tactics is coming....

Also if your looking for the doom 3 alpha leak i doubt you will find it these days, you could try simulating that bathroom shot or up your resolution in quake 3.

Jedi Knight 3? posted by eyeronik on Tuesday 1st April 2003, 11:05

According to jk2.net jedi knight 3 is 60% finished by LucasArts and Activision. Jk2 had a pretty good single player affair and some decent levels to boot, although probably not as good as the seriously over rated jk1 levels.

quote:
Right, with the story. At the end of Jedi Knight II, Kyle saves Jan from Desann?s claws, and the galaxy from the Doomgiver. Six years later: Kyle is now an instructor at Luke Skywalker?s famous Jedi Academy. Thus, for the first time in the Dark Forces series, you don?t play as Kyle Katarn! Instead, you create a character for yourself. Create? Yes, similar to a role-playing game you choose your characters gender, race (Humans and Twi?leks are confirmed so far) face, hair cut and clothing! And the customization doesn?t end there: you also choose a saber handle, colour and whether you want to use one or two sabers! Later on, you will also get a Darth Maul-style double-bladed saber.

New News Stuff posted by eyeronik on Tuesday 1st April 2003, 09:52

Good Evening girls and boys, just a note to say we have a new news system in place for more news fun. I was bombared with people requesting to be news posters too last time i asked with a grand total of 0 people. So anyway ill ask again, now all you have to do is post in a little box, but the main reason was just so we can have better news really including more map news from lots of formats just to keep the site running along and give a bit more content. Also this news has a comments system, im sure it probably wont be used much but its there anyway

Also if anyone has any remedies for trapped-nerves-in-little-fingers (for 2 days!!!) please let me know! ow!
