Zombie Panic


Unstoppable

Recommended Posts

I don't see much point in posting the patch information, as this is not the Zombi Panic forum, but then again, I also don't see why this would be "cluttering the forum" either.

 

I think the "cluttering" was because the information was needlessly duplicated. A link to the changelog would have been enough.

Sorry, I didn't mean to offend you, Unstoppable. It certainly wasn't my intent to stop you from posting about things you enjoy. I just thought posting the entire 2-page changelog was a bit ... unnecessary, especially considering that a link would have been just as informative without filling up multiple screens.

-Hey! Thanks for the advice. I tried Insurgency and it truly is really good!

 

Why bother to buy new games that need a monster machine, when there are FREE commercial quality mods for older games? :blink:

 

Mainly because they don't take the time to properly optimize their maps and models. I bet if you spent the time to go through it, and take out everything that didn't need to be rendered, like rooftops, the back of models that you can never see ect ect you could increase the speed 1.5x

-Well, I don't complain since it runs perfectly on my older machine, so no "speed-boost" of 1.5x is required. And what comes into commercial games... Well, they want to get their money quickly, causing expedited publishing of the game. Afterwards they may fix the problems if the community complains enough. Battlefield 2 is a very sad example: initially it had a game server browser from hell and nowadays (when no updates are no longer expected) it is only horrendously crappy.

jdude - come play Insurgency and tell me that you give a crap about all that. If your machine can run HL2:EP2 then it will be fine. The only issue at all for me is lag, but that is rare and a different issue entirely.

 

I had an awesome run yesterday, street battling in doorways and behind cars. The AK47 is a bad mofo.

I want your brain... to make his heart... beat faster.

      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.
