Need Beta Testers! For 'The Rift'


Recommended Posts

At long last I am ready to call it good enough. The objectives complete and I'm worn out.


So I need a couple volunteers who wanna try it out and give some feedback. Would be great to have each difficulty finished at least once by at least one person.


Then tell me what you think.


Did you get stuck? Did you find everything? Overall impressions, etc...


I'm not planning on changing anything really, but will do a few small tweaks depending on feedback. I'd like to be done with the test round by Fri the Lucky 13th. How's that for a finish date?


It's right under 10 MB and I can email it.

I have a P4 3.0ghz and a HD4650 AGP (so kinda lowish...)




But I am no expert ghoster and I find every FM challenging and fun because of my lack of skills :laugh:

(cant resist the chance to see this in action BC...)

Please visit TDM's IndieDB site and help promote the mod:




(Yeah, shameless promotion... but traffic is traffic folks...)

Should be good, got 4 right now. Thanks though (I need someone to play after testing ;) )


I was planning on talking you up on that OLD offer of a little help with storyline for that mansion mission I was working on. Gonna add some city streets to it. But I'll PM you with some better details one of these days, now that this is out of the way I'm going back to that one.

Probably not tonight. I was trouble shooting stuff on Wed, had to take my truck into the shop, got pissed when the $450 quote turned into $1050, then got distracted by a texture/normal issue, lured into the forums, started modeling Neilsen's Print Press, Got it working with gears and sound, fixed and added a gear model/normal map, started a few other machine prefabs, went to bed. All that while dog sitting a dog that wanted me to play all day.


I still have a few things to touch up and I'm calling it far from perfect but good enough. This weekend most likely.

      Be honest: Who of you have actually finished Cuphead? This game is freaking tough! It might even be harder than Sekiro. Dark Souls is a joke in comparison to Cuphead! :-D

      Please, can we finally group the missions by year in the game menu?

      I vaguely recall someone recently complained about two-sided materials (curtains?) not getting lighting from both sides
      I just found a piece of code that's supposed to do just that
      Where was that discussed? (@nbohr1more?)

      I still play classic Doom (albeit with user-made mods and maps rather than the original campaign) on a regular basis. A game from the early 90's which has still got a healthy following in 2022. Pretty amazing.

      I'm beginning to understand why people who aren't into social clubbing "don't last long" on this project, and why it's so full of holes. When moderators are siding with bullies, by closing down threads that they derail, then I start to wonder if I should support the platform to begin with.
      I'm sure that the core development is solid, but when you're constantly tone policed and bullied, and moderators are playing into it too, then the project will just drive away talent, and replace it with socialites instead. ...and without talent, you only end up with a small skeleton crew trying to do everything themselves.
      ...so Dragofer and Airship Ballet, and all you other socialites, you win. From now on I'll just keep to myself. You'll never be able to do my work, but at least you'll be happy together, and that's what matters to you.
      Actually, I have to revise my statement:
      I actually messaged greebo - the top dog, I gather - about nbohr1more's outburst of insanity below, and since I haven't even heard back from him, I just have to assume that there's not a single core programmer here, who's not backing nbohr's threats. ...and that's bad.
      ...so if you're a newbie reading this, or an honest soul like ZergRush, then just slowly back out of these forums, run, and don't look back. This is nothing more than a cult posing as a game development project, using Thief and IDTech4 to sucker hopefuls in, to do work for them, while trying to cajole them into something going on behind the scenes, which apparently - according to nbohr - is something that should be hidden from the state. These people aren't programmers - they don't even understand things like how to fix the simplest bugs. All they have, is an engine, and an IP, and some sort of fascist social cult. There was some other project I saw being made in the Unreal Engine. Try joining that project. ...or start a project of your own. Anything but this asylum.
      Hopefully that was "divisive" enough for a final post, because at this point I really want people to leave this place. This project is, on a management level, just awful garbage, run by garbage people, apparently from the top down, and I'm just glad that they have a garbage place to stay, together, and hopefully forever.
