Chess boxing

I can't believe it. I just heard about a new sport, which I didn't believe for real and I thought a collegue was trying to make fun of me. :)

This sounds quite hilarious to me, but it seems poeple take it quite seriously. :laugh:

 

Have you ever heard about this before?

Yeah, I was thinking the two games should be connected, too, like battle chess ... you'd literally fight when someone wanted to capture a piece, and if the capturer wins the capture stands, but if he loses then he loses his own piece instead and the attacked piece stays (or something like that suitably discouraging that maintains the logic of the game; I think that would work, though, with a few caveats).

 

A "win" would be like the first person to make a critical contact punch, or 3, or something like that within a time period ... and if the time period runs out the capture stands. And they'd just keep their gloves on and vocally call out their moves. And maybe a checkmate would require like 10 critical hits.

 

Now that's what I think of with chess boxing. Really connect the two.

What do you see when you turn out the light? I can't tell you but I know that it's mine.

      Hey @nbohr1morehow come the zombies in The Dark Mod don't have a "resurrection" mechanic to it, similar to how Thief has it?
      They're quite a weak creature as of right now, it's merely a walking corpse that slashes you, making attacking them to kill them an actual strategy.
      Would be better if they had some cool mechanism to it that truly makes them a danger, such as the resurrection idea itself.

      Query: when was the last time a zombie in a video game was unnerving or scary to you? I'm chipping away at my anniversary submission and I've been trying to gather opinions on the subject. I'm perfectly capable of lighting them well, changing their sfx, and creating effective ambience, but I'm worried that zombies at their core are just too overdone to be an effective payoff to the tension I'm creating.

      Has anyone had any luck with textures from Polyhaven? Their OpenEXR normal maps seem too washed out and give incorrect shading in the engine.

      I tried to upscale the TDM logo video. First try:

      briefing_video.mp4 You can test it ingame by making a copy of the core tdm_gui.mtr and place it in your-tdm-root/materials/ , then edit line 249 of that file into the location where you placed the new briefing.mp4 file.
      What I did was I extracted all the image files, then used Upscayl to upscale the images using General photo (Real-Esrgan) upscale setting and then turn it back into a video.
      I might have to crop it a bit, the logo looks smaller on screen (or maybe it's actually better this way?). My video editor turned it into a 16:9 video, which I think overal looks better than 1:1 video of original.
