BTW I feel really bad for this kid, or he's making up a disgusting joke of himself. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GE2mFmQaoKQ...feature=channel That kid looks like Pfhortipfhy. anyway If we create something, it won't be Half-life, or Marathon. We won't get those classic elements. You say, with you...

Far Cry was so frustrating I stopped playing and only recently came back and finished it.
When Half-Life was released, damn everything changed and games became more realistic
Which has it's ups and downs. but remember- If someone is playing a game, it's to get away from the real.

Stop the flame war, dangit! People are entitled to their own opinions, but should keep them to themselves. The Marathon community is becoming bland, not because of Marathon, but rather because of the elitist, fowl-mouthed, immature people who pretend to run and own it, and the constant hostility and...

wall of text Yeah, you have lots of points there, although by the end of M1 we get their jump drive, and somewhere around infinity we have fleets of our own. I'm sure human technology on Earth advanced miles in the 300 years the Marathon was off- the Marathon wouldn't have had the resources to adva...

Just be warned of indigenous goats. I always lose track of them. (It's "Lh'owon" by the way.) We've already argued about this. Pedro, Synth and I had a pretty long talk about certain things in our "Project" and decided we should make a summary of what you missed. Either way, even if we end up with ...

Is it a windows program? Because if it is it might not work. I'll try dlling it. Yeah, it is, which is why it won't work on my mac. The plugin for Photoshop will work with CS2, but I have CS4, so no joy again. Also here is my attempt to recreate an M1 map, using BGE instead of source. Only spent ha...

I'm back, hello. I reckon Rubicon was awesome too. Related to the Pfhor, I think it's probably a good idea to think about why a technologically advanced race like the Pfhor would bother with slaving. Humans at the time the Pfhor attacked weren't just unskilled labour- we are one of the most advanced...

To the "Not much is being done for the project" claim, True, but I mapped A LOT today, prolly for 6 hours or so. We are making progress, but it is true that it is slow. Synth is also working on a piece of music. Major Pedro is gonna do some texture work for us so hopefully the mp map will be comple...

OKAY I was asked to check out textures, here are my findings. The textures are .vmt and .vtf, not .dds as expected. The .vmt's are come up as unix ppc documents, so I need to find a translator. By the way, Maps are Quake 3 .bsp's, 3D models are .dx80.vtx, .dx90.vtx, .sw.vtx, .mdl, .vvd, .phy, and .a...

CHECK THESE OUT IF YOU ARE SOURCE MODDING

(ps. haven't you heard, caps lock is cruise control for cool)

Valve developer wiki

Valve Hammer Editor

SoftImage mod tool

They are probably all worth looking into. The top one is an amazing resource.

Unfortunately, finding a moddable modern shooter for the mac is relatively slim. There is Doom 3/Quake 4 (although these are relatively old), Call of Duty 4, and Unreal Tournament 3 (the UT3 mac port is currently being developed). Why do you people talk without me? Mac users can run source through ...

What it comes down to is we need better tools. Maybe making plugins for the Quake engine, for example, would be a good idea, something that allows for fast cut-and-paste style work, and then figure out the details later. The project could take a really long time. I have no issue with that. Maybe a ...

Why has this been done about a million times but never really worked? Infested, Resurrection etc are incredibly awesome but they never ended up catching on as a total remake. @ Wail- Yeah I agree, you need to make it a totally new game, not another scenario... Also the source engine is very complex ...
