New Screenshots Showing of Bond1's Bloom Shader on the Castle Lobby


This Screenshot Shows The Castle Itself as Eric aproaches it after the crash. which was faithfully recreated from the written story our writer made and what can be previewed during loadings
Quote: "The light from the enteranced shimmered as bright as the sun itself, with the dark forest surrounding me, and with the tempture dropping, i found myself being drawn towards the light, like a moth."


This here is the way out of the castle

But the Darkness Will not let you leave. (if anyone knows any shaders i can use to make the black seem more shiny (its a retexture of false wall) please tell me

Small Libary room.

I`m making similar game, and I also use my sanity script (shake cam, show hud, move player, freeze player when sees something awkward)
You said you need help with sanity script so maybe I can help you a bit?

So this is what it should look like, works for me, just make sure you have 001,002,003,blackout files in sanity folder.
If its not what you pictured we can make it better.
Ah yes, you have to be actually in the dark (A.k.a triggerzone) for this script to work. When you get out of dark, (step out of trigger zone) your sanity returns normal.

the only 2 things i need to get going now is the Looking at enemies sanity code, and the door control, the door control im completley clueless on, and its the same base code for sanity on the enemies, only it only is affected if the player looks at the monsters (and bipass the dynamic doors) the others are AI which is for the Monsters to search for players hit doors down, and give up looking for players after a certain ammount of time. so im almost there
[Edit] The door control is pressing Use [F] which gives the player the door interactivy W and S to slowly open and shut doors, and shift to push them open or shut.

almost, except it doesnt count for all monsters, just one at the end of the game [Spoler! ]
One problem so far though, the sanity script only works on small test levels, for some unknown reason, whenever i put it in a large level, it seems to not work ;_;
and does the camshake have to be triggered by a zone?

You mean the script with huds 001,002,003 and blackout. I posted on 8th april?
Hmm thats odd!

Quote: "and does the camshake have to be triggered by a zone?"


No, the line:

is meant for a monster, you just add this line to your monster script.
And next time player sees monster the camera will shake!

Devolpment might be going on hold, due to the fact my devolpment team (one level designer who dont ever do anything) is a bunch of lazy slackers, and they find that playing world of warcraft is far more entertaining T_T

You are just using different styled model pack in one scene.
As you said:
Quote: "Eric awakes infront of a large castle"

Well,in the first screen I can see the stone ground with woody wall and that bottle which are not coordinate.
One time you used torch and other time a light from WWII models.
One time everything are good for a castle except the ceiling from Metro theater.
And do not use stock light like red and yellow which are not good.
Change the color of them by yourself to make a better scene.

Have our guns was a mistake!!!

Quote: "Well,in the first screen I can see the stone ground with woody wall and that bottle which are not coordinate"

Quote: "One time you used torch and other time a light from WWII models."

Quote: "One time everything are good for a castle except the ceiling from Metro theater"

I mean if the game is about a castle the torches are good but that lights from WWII models are not good for that.
Try using different type of torches instead of using different lights from different time.
And you can use lightcandle.fpi for your torch lights as it can make a better scene.(I don't know if you use them I just remind)

Kinda stuck Here suggestions to what i can add to these


Excuse the face, and the monster for that fact, i accidently activated him lol



If you are gonna suggest light for the one above, dont bother, im adding some particle fog, by the creepy statue, and a fire by the door.
Edit: Any ideas to stop the model pack 54 letter entity from hitting enemies? and how to block off those stupid holes in the stairs without it looking stupid, or would the metrothearters stair suffice without being noticed (any skins for it to blend in please upload them thnx )

The new screens looks more basic than before.
Maybe you have to take a rest for one day to get more energy for continuing.
And for those stairs you can do this:
Make a shape like this and by rotating fill the holes.

You can search for YRR Struct pack for better textures and scales.
I got that model from cosmic prophet's cave pack.

And for better designing you can use blood decals on the ground and story teller's dead body scripts for making enemies dead from starting.
Just like this screen from my game called GreeD:


The man is dead and it means zombies killed him,in your game it means creatures killed him

Thanks Payam, i will be adding dead bodies soon, not yet though, bodies show up before the monsters, by story telling did you mean like this:
It quite clearly shows the men were tourtured and some were put in to spiked cages to await their deaths.

2FPS?? That's er, not that great...
In the last screen the wall tiles don't look good vertically.
Your trailer looks good, but the castle alley parts look bland.
Also, you call your game Fallen Darkness at the end of the trailer.

Looks good so far.

Quick Question, is there anyway to stop the WW2 Wine bottle clipping through walls its getting verry annoying T_T

One more thing, im using the wall tourches from model pack 43, i would of thought that due to the fact it was running on the same script the flame would apear however i get this.



Anyone know any fixes? i can hear the flames but i cant see them only the bloom from the light source.


Ps Payam, could you help us on the modeling (i saw some of your models on the fourm they are awesome ) if you are intrested just email me.

I have several new screenshots of Rooms that i have just finished in the game, since the progress has been restarted (i was not happy with the original) so here are some screens of the new look of some room (the castle lobby has a lot of bugs to be fixed)


Big thanks to Delusional Games for doing the Music on the project though i have not heard anything from the music producer latley.
Also has a slight bit of a treat i decided to show a letter that is used in the game (its already been planted and its ready )
Quote: "18th August 1865
The men have no courage to go in, I know that the secrets within give key to my families past.
The Myths, The legend, the outcasting and the killing, it wounds me sorrowly to think of how these poor people could have such vile things done to them.
Shamefully, the people believe that "Spirits" are haunting the castle and they hear them scream out in the night, What nonsense, Tomorow i will enter the castle, in a hope of finding out, what really happend to my family."
