Your are on a UESC ship, specially designed for an exhibition to a "New" pfhor world. In this level, you have just landed and the object is to allow the battlefront in so the human forces can kill them.

Long story.

Those textures were done by visciom, unfortunately they only accomidate so many slots. I havent even mmled all them in yet.

Interesting...my original post was deleted.

I still think your first post is a bit conceited (arrogant...whatever...), but nice work! Keep it up! [MUp]

I don't see how his first post was conceited. It seems perfectly resonable too me. Btw, kickass screenshots!

Ya. He's just saying that he won't post the crap...seemed obvious to me. Then again, I can see how it would be misunderstood.

Tofu,
Eltwixxo,
Ham,
Blasty,
Visciom,
Me,
Alexander Smith

Are definately on the team.

Shong once made me weapons that I didnt use,
Chausara wanted to help me but never responded after a while
A girl called hannah said she could photoshop for me but her stuff aint that good and I havent seen the final product yet.

A few various others aswell.



The real news here is that my old computer is taking another break. (You had 8 bloody months off!!!) So it wont turn on. But it has done this before. And itll resume its consciences later. I could map on this computer, which has all the eye candy on it, but it just doesnt feel the same.

Ok then. BTW, it looks like your email got blocked by my router, not even my email program, which means that I'm not competent enough to retrieve it. Try sending a different email, without punctuation, numbers, or symbols in the subject. Also, write a resonably lengthy message, or use this as filler. Obviously, don't say 'stock' 'bank' or 'viagra'

Ok, when shadow was started, I did the physics on an m2 model. Which was a huge mistake. If anyone wants to copy every value out of the current phyiscs model, I'll send you it, and put you under special thanks.

actually that isnt necessary, sbreaker. in anvil you can copy and paste whole entries by selecting them on the list and then inserting 'em in an infinity physics model. so it'll just take 10-30 minutes

Can't infinity handle the exact same M2 files?

in theory yes,

its M1 you have to be carefull about, and even so, its not that hard to transfer to the newer marathon engine (anvil still reads m1)

shongshong,

could you elaborate on the part with Anvil being able to read Marathon 1 files, cause i'm sure it isnt at all possible. Also i think there's a passage about it in the manual, saying that they cut this feauture due to limited time being available back then.

If you look around, you can find various PM editors that were created for M1.

Ok dudes, I havent got anythin to show right now, but I need some stuff.


Primarily, I need mappers,. Homocidal Ham may be just made of maps, but the more mappers we get the better the scenario is, because you can always tell if one person made a certain amount of maps.


Second, we need a guy to do monster sprites. I need a big layout of new monsters.

I just got a new photoshopper, Luzon, who is making me textures. He says hes paid to photoshop, so if you liked the second picture you'll like the rest.

I can draw, but you'd have to wait till' mid-august for me to get anything done (still don't have my computer...)...
What?! I'm offering help to Shadowbra?!!!! What am I thinking?!!!
I'm bored and I need something to do!!!
Just send me some info on what you want your monster to look like and I can help a little...

I bet you folks thought I was doing nothing in the hiatus of the pfhorums. GUESS AGAIN!

Well actually I didnt "do" most of the stuff, other did it for me but I directed and perfected most of it... here it is.


Firstly:


(the flare and hand were there, but I forgot to show their layers in photoshop when I copied it.)

Secondly:



Thirdly: I finally found a monster artist. Unfortunately, he can't read my mind so we do some sort of game where he shows me the monster, and I say how to change it. Right now we are working on a very essential monster known as the "Militia". Ill post it up when its done.

Fourthly: No word from Luzon.

Fifthly: Instead of fucking around the old physics file, Ive just decided to scrap it.

Sixthly: This aint all folks, there is lots of new stuff almost done or done but I aint showin it right here. Stuff like terminal art and maps and screenshots and so forth. I have only got water set textures, and only 1 water set map worth showing (the first one), Ill get some screens with them later. Ive also got the rocket launcher to show, but its in psd which takes too long to load on short notice.
