Cody: Hmm.. that's odd. My betatesters haven't had that bug. Try to download the latest DirectX and if it still doesn't work, try to redownload the demo.

rakker126: Thanks!

I'm looking forward for your reviews guys! I want to know how to improve my level design, lighting and such

I tested this out... I like the fact that you did a large urban area, that's always risky with FPSC, and you pulled it off pretty well. Here's some pros and cons;

+ The shaders look great, the "dog" running past the lights made my jaw drop
+The explosive barrel was a nice touch
+Limiting the ammo was good, it made the combat a lot more suspenseful.
+ The frame rate was steady
+The blood puffs looked great, a lot better than the standard FPSC gore.

- It wasn't very scary. I guess you were going for more of an action game though.
-Bugs; When I fell through the floor and died the third time I simply ragequit the game.
- A bit empty. For example the "shop" with health and ammo felt very artificial because it was so empty. A bit more attention to detail would be nice...

Overall, it was better than average, and it's always nice to see city areas in FPSC games.

Thank you Ehetyz!

About those cons. I know it wasn't very scary, and the main thing that makes Vague scary, is that you have to conserve ammo, and when you have shot all your bullets to a small spider, you'll be screwed. There will be some "neat" crazyness effects in the full release though

About falling through the floor. That's a weird bug indeed. You along with my friend are the only ones who have encountered this. I really don't have any idea how to fix this.

And about that "shop" (a drugstore, atleast I tried to make it look like one), I agree that it's a bit empty but I really had no idea what I could have put in there

Thanks for your review!

Link removed for now since we have encountered some major issues with the demo.

It only works on approximately 25% of machines. That's why we will turn shaders off, and get rid of S4mod.

CoZ: Thanks and sorry, I won't be using your shaders since it seems to cause some problems on most machines. Your shaders are very high quality but I can't put them into Vague thanks to FSPC.

Okay guys, the second demo has been updated and it should have only some minor bugs (not major, like falling through the ground when you start the game).

A little warning: The first level will propably lag on most of the machines but the 4 other levels should be a steady 30-38 fps on most of the machines.

And another warning:

This game contains some strong language and extreme gore. Play at your own risk.

Ok, well I just played your wonderful demo, and besides enemies falling through closed doors (which I know really can't be fixed, but oh well) that game is amazing, and it's kinda funny to see a demo that is about as long as your average Joe FPSC game, lol. You managed to freak me out, and thats coming from a guy who plays gears of war and resident evil. The zombies have a lot of variety and you don't use that annoying "walking through a 1 segment hallway and a zombie spawns.......behind you" thing. Great work man! Everyone is going to have a blast out of this game! (P.S. omegamod would be beneficial for a game that is as good as fear)

Thank you 2 Rogues! Always nice to hear praise

I'm not planning to get any mod since they seem to bring some weird bugs, like player falling through the ground when he spawns and such.

Tested out the new demo.
I was a bit disappointed on the gore front, I was hoping for something more extreme
But on a more serious note... I don't know what happened between this and the previous demo, but this one was laggy to the point of unplayable. The previous had a steady, over-25 frame rate, but here it never went above 10fps (except when I stared at the ground).
So... Not for the low-powered systems I guess.

The mod doesn't do any thing to FPSC, and if u take screenshots, the effects dont show up, so it's probably just a filter, and btw the game for me was vreh smooth, running at roughly 31 fps for me. Eheytz, what r ur comp specs?

The .dll mods which you are suggesting '2 Rogues', do effect the frame rate. You do not know about this because you're running a high end system, but the mods you speak of use post-processing effects, which are very CPU heavy.

I personally consider them useless for FPSC X9 because they are so limiting on the target audience, often requiring specs similar to the X10 version to get any decent performance out of, which then begs the question - "why not just use X10?"

Juzi, is this the release with the menu screens? I have yet to get round to the comprehensive review, I just haven't had time yet, apologies.

Ehetyz: Yeah, I agree that it's not the "goriest" game around there but atleast it has blood and headless corpses and such

The framerate is lower because I removed S4mod from the game. I rather have a working but laggy demo, than a smooth but very, very buggy demo (like stated numerous times, almost half of the players fell through the ground at start.)

2 Rogues: Nice to hear that the game was smooth

Paul112: Menu screens? You mean loading screens? Yup, they are there . I will eagerly wait for your review

Very CPU-heavy, eh? well my computer has a 1.4GHZ CPU, and I didn't get any issues with the framerate.

I think I meant GPU. I tried it on my PC with 128MB VRAM, and 512MB RAM and it turned into a slideshow.

When I say "high end", I don't mean Crysis style. I mean you have better than the recommended requirements for FPSC, which judging by your game, which I know would have lagged teribly on mine but was apparently fine for you, I assume you have.

Dude232: As far as I know about computers, your GPU shouldn't affect the framerate at all, since there isn't any "nice visual effects" like shaders and such. You do need a good CPU and lots of RAM.

Thank you for clarifying Juzi, I don't have a good CPU (and I only have a gig of RAM) but I do have a NVidia GEforce 7600 GT AGP 512mb Graphics processor, so maybe that has something to do with it. Until next time!

Okay, It's time to say this.

Vague is really close to release, and I have a very important question: How many of you would be ready to pay for this? Say, 5 dollars. There's lots of custom media and we have seen very much effort to this so I think it's fair to ask even a little price. Of course, if people aren't willing to pay even a small price, then we are going to release Vague for free.

And another thing:

I'm happy to announce that we have decided to make a sequel to this game. Vague 2. Vague 2 will be a commercial game, and it won't be made with FPS Creator anymore. It will have everything custom. Engine, graphics, models, music, sounds, everything. These kind of projects wont be free so I have a question: Would someone like to donate us a small amount of cash via PayPal? Even a small help is a good help.

I think 5$ is fair but I would go for free,more people will appreciate it.But this is just my opinion.Good luck with Vague 2 and your fancy engine you are going to make for it.

You'll have to advance to the public park. Go out of the pharmacy and walk to the other side of the road and look for a gate.

Yes, now I noticed that! I just tried to press "enter" when I needed to press "f". Now I got into the part after seweres... Great, I have nothing to complain about. Atleast it's way better than mine! (Planet Hell).

First the game was supposed to come out in 2007, then 2008 and now 2009. I'm really working hard to get it out in time. If I have to give dates, then I'd say August-September. Let's hope this isn't the next Duke Nukem Forever
