Sure, do you want it to do just that, or have a standard script as well? Do you want me to add it into an existing script?

Should be easy, I'll tell it to use Strafe10, aka, the DarkAI script....

This looks great! Brings me back to the old days of FPSC...I guess it's a similar style. Kinda reminds me of a cross between NIK's and Butter's stuff.

Nice hand retexture, by the way.

I like how we consider a map in FPSC to be running well when it doesn't lock up with 0 FPS...

Hey CG, thanks. Do you mean the textures or that the map almost takes up the full grid?


yeah inspire,
I'm glad I worked out that problem with indoor, yet outdoor is so laggy it's not funny as soon as AI and weapons are introduced.
Maybe people with better specs than me may get better results with something like this.

I mean how did you get such a large level to go so well, then again, I never get 0 fps lock-ups, but it still runs pretty low....

Hey people, I was so close to a head on today, thanks to someone thinking they could run a intersection. Locked em up.
So I'm happy to let the cat out of the bag on how I build outdoor. Why not.
If there is enough people interested I will start another thread on the topic.

@CG, sorry. Apart from trees etc. 4 entities, and a lot of segments.
22-23fps with no AI and Weps, 18fps with AI and Weps.
Hard to say running the S4mod, or a Dual-Core etc. would give a better frame rate. Thats why I might do a tut, the process itself uses about 4-5 programs from memory.
Oh, and by saying 0fps lock up. Indoor - invisible array, caused by a removing/deleting assets in a level build. This looks to may have been fixed.
Outdoor - caused by collision problems with a mesh can lock a player up.

@NickyDude, Postition of AI in limited segment and entity areas I find work best, such as no rooms behind rooms. Even if your spawning AI, A room or part of a level located behind the room you are in, I find can effect fps with AI. So I often put the AI's back to a wall. And that's why small multi level maps (indoor) can work so well.
Outdoor, I often use the same approach. However keeping AI again to smaller zones.


@Astek, no worries. Hit me up any time.


@Inspire, So true.

Interesting. The trick I used was to spawn the enemy when the player is near only in a place where the player would more or less have to kill it, therefore getting rid of it so it's not wandering around.

deca,

This is looking really sharp. I love the variety of scenery you have. That outdoor[off topic] looking scene reminds me of a dinosaur hunting game I used to have.

Thanks for the sig support.

Best.

Deca, I think your file is infected as I almost got a trojan come in throgh a back door. Luckily I switched off my PC before anything could happen. Adware2010 advert = fail.

Reupload it to Filefront so I don't get a virus, please.

@Dar13, thanks for the report. I had the same when I up'd it to our server. decided to try a free host. Looks like I will have to compile it again. Sorry for the delay.

@AI, not sure about that. I will do another upload. maybe not a zip or something. Maybe it was Sendspace. Yet I always thought they were ok.

@Butt monkey, thanks for the report.

@CG _ CoffeeGrunt, thanks CG. Did the file also not open for you and locks up at startup. It did this to me, maybe the upload is being corrupted. Good thing is it is only a 20mb file. So I will try it again and post a new link today.

@darimc, sorry there old pal I missed your comment. Yeah I am not sure what was causing the error with the game itself. I extracted the same zip on my desktop and worked fine before upload.

@Crav3, Hey. Thanks for the comment. No not yet its still an early area of dev.

I played it and enjoyed it... and I have to say that the
principles of that level reminded me of Mirror's Edge.
Any back story to the development and also why those blocks
are like that in the tower?

I felt it added an original feel to the game man! I loved it.
I suggest with great enthusiasm that you include more sections like
these. It reminded me of the good old games like System Shock,
Dues Ex, and all those classic hits. I hope with all dear sincerity
that you include more sections like these. I mean, its just a game...
why care for much realism if it brings fun? Its called a game you know. Not Reality 2.0.

@Dar13, Not sure what is happening, because if you downloaded the new name version rar, it should not affect the original download if you deleted it or not. Maybe the file Astek mentioned, may help. I am not sure and only suggest try it if you want to. I'm not sure if the other download link with help or not either. Good luck and sorry if you are unable to play.
