      I'm working on building my steam library. Send me game titles, and I'll buy them if I don't have them already.

      I'm now rocking a projector in my living room, so I'm gaming with 5.1 surround sound and a 10' screen. It is pretty epic.

    • A few renders

      I haven't posted a journal in awhile, but I am still alive. I've been pretty busy with school and work lately. I found some time to play the Enslaved Demo and this game is beautiful. I went ahead and pulled the Trip model and textures from the game to do some renders. I didn't feel like just doing a t-pose so I posed the model real quick.

      This is one I did accidentally. I selected the wrong view when I did the render, but I ended up really like the composition so I saved it. Just thought I would share.

    • Summer job is over

      5 years ago

      fritzmonkey

      My summer job just finished up last friday. Every summer I work for a summer program at ASU called CampGame. We teach high school students how to develop video games. In previous years we did this by teaching the students how to make mods for the Unreal Tournament series, but this year we used the Unreal Development Kit. This was an awesome change and means that for the first time the game that the students created can be released without anyone needing to own a copy of an Unreal Tournament game. If you feel like wasting some time playing a ridiculously hard game you can find it here. (If the download isn't there yet, please be patient. I'm uploading it while typing this and it should be up shortly).

      Anyways! The game was made by a group of 8 high school students in a month. They did an awesome job and everything you see in the game (except for the loading screens) was made by them. Let me know if you have any questions, or need any help!

      So I decided to do a quick Master Chief render now that I have the halo 3 retail models (and finally the actual CC maps) and not just the beta ones.

      I've also spent some time getting Cortana set up and I just need to finisher her rig. Don't know if I'll get to it though because work starts in about a week. smiley5.gif

      Here's the fixed version of the dropship. You were right, it looks better curved.

      This is what it looks like from the top right now.

      could you show me (in a drawing, perhaps) what I should do to change it?

    • Alex_vanPutten

      6 years ago

      Do you mean curve it so it's facing more downwards?

    • firebug19

      I certainly hope so.

    • firebug19

      I like some of the changes, but they still have loads of issues to solve. My biggest gripe is the lag. We get it so bad over here because there are no European servers, and the lag in the Reach Beta is worse than Halo 3 at the moment. Hopefully they will apply all of the fixes required before it is released in autumn. I like the invasion playlist, but I hope they keep infection going.

      Well, do you like the changes they've made? Do you enjoy playing etc?

      Yeah, I've gotta say, I understood about 75% of what you meant, but I look forward to that type of mapping, because that ODST pod is taking a rather large chunk of Lightwave with it atm :P;

      I need to apply such displacement tricks in Lightwave, and I'm reasonably sure if I go with the core version, it should work XD

      the '10 taurus is turbo charged, and you can't drive the SHO unless you have credit approval D: so we drove the downgraded one I guess you could say...but it was still amazing for a Ford Taurus

      Basically, EliteForce30 was a fake profile for 4 years, a lie that span faaaaar out of control, ending up with the guy posting as himself claiming to be Elite's cousin and listing Elite as a KIA US Marine. After a couple of days, though, he confessed.

    • Alex_vanPutten

      If it doesn't work, I'll sell it for parts.

      According to my sister, it "turned on, but never booted, then shut itself off". after my dad had a look at it, he decided that it was the hard drive.

      Greetings, fellow Mafia player! You may remember me from such spam events as "drag all the recent players back to the game" and "make everyone vote." Today, I'm spamming your profile looking for help. The Mafia Group is attempting to collate story posts and user posts from a lot of previous rounds and make a hilarious book to fund a convention. This short story anthology with a proper introduction to the game will need a lot more helpers than it currently has and it would be really nice to have you on board. We're only looking for about 6 hours a week.

      At the very least, if you can't spare any time to help, you could at least give us official permission to use your name and postings in the book, for which we'll send you a free copy on the release date.

      Hey, I went and got the PCSX2 thing after seeing you mention it in the thread. Downloaded/configured the bios, and did pretty much everything the site told me to, but I can't get it to go. Every time I tell it to run the cd/dvd it says "resetting" and then freezes up. Any idea what I'm doing incorrectly?

    • firebug19

      It is actually a really hilarious film. I didn't think I would like it, but I did.

      Oh, he likes his comedy too. Did you ever see "Lesbian Vampire Killers"? He loved that film.

      Greeble sounds familiar... and yeah, "ngon issues" is a good way to put it - the bottom sweeps back by 10 metres, the top sweeps back by 15, so it's all a little bit fuzzed. But the high-poly version for interior shots is starting to come together and doesn't have the same issues so far - I'm gradually getting everything together smiley0.gif
      I guess you're still short on time since you're hardly ever in the threads these days?

      I haven't seen that yet, but no worries. I know what it's like to get busied up. Also, good luck with the interview!
      If I find someone else willing to do the character models, I'll get that model from you for a fair percentage, but there's a lot I need to do on the rest anyway, so we might as well just let that chill for the moment smile.png

      I'll see about getting a series of shots for you tomorrow - I've worked out the dynamics of how to do it (even took some test pics) but I look an absolute state today 'cos I'm putting off my shower until late afternoon. Not in a condition to be immortalised in Max lol.png Tomorrow, I'll do all that and send it off to you.

      The New Flight characters.
      We could start with some redshirts, though, if you like. That'd be just nondescript sort of characters...

      As for poly count, I'm not sure. Long as it looks good; I'm aiming for fairly good realism.

      Ah... if you still need a hand, I'll see if anyone else I know knows about it.
      It'd be the sort of thing like huge quantities of Darts all moving almost in unison but slightly different as they exit hives or anyone flying in formation. Probably other things too, but I can't think of them right now lol.png
