ChaosEsque Anthology Anonymous 06/02/2016 (Thu) 14:36:57 [Preview] No. 42 [Reply]
ChaosEsque Anthology is a first person shooter. It is a standalone modification of Xonotic which includes extended weapons, maps, vehicles, buildable buildings, mounted weapons, spell casting, monsters, player characters, textures, and game modes.

It has over 100 maps. Some are futuristic, some are ancient, and some are medieval. A few evoke platform games such as sonic, others follow a style more akin to diablo. Some are static maps, others are randomly connected.

There is something to fit your mood. There are mutators that can add mounted weapons in any map, buildings, monsters, foliage, hazards, and even balloons and bumpers. You can fight with futuristic weapons, medieval weapons, and /or hand to hand combat (over 100 weapons). There are also many vehicles (and a mutator to spawn them in maps that do not have them, as is tradition (as you can see)).

You can also set each team to start with different specific weapons if you want to test a theory that you could defeat a well equipped military force with your bolt action rifle or crossbow. Same with vehicles and mounted weapons spawning (you can set which spawn near which team in CTF etc). You can drink wine, potions, learn magic, read scrolls, so on and so forth.

The goal, and much of this has been reached, is to not limit the player.

>When am I going to be able to play as a strong female main character in this game?

There are like 3 of them. 2 from Xonotic, 1 inherited from Nexuiz.

1 is a trinity-esque white bitch (from Xon)
2 is a sassy black cunt (from Xon)
3 is a tranny bitch cop (From Nex)

What we, sadly, don't have is qt3.14 lolis like wikipe-tan.

Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck, how did this happen and I didn't hear of it!!!


>It was in September, 1997 – over 19 years ago (we’ll round that out to 20, for marketing reasons) – when us humble folk from Running With Scissors unleashed our Robotron-inspired isometric shooter POSTAL to the unsuspecting public at large. It was an instant hit, grabbing the attention of gamers, parents and politicians across the country, and we’ve been supporting and updating it ever since. But now, (almost) 20 years later, we are entrusting our fans with the future of our game, by releasing its source code to the public. Consider it a belated Christmas present!

Only a matter of time until it's ported.

I've been working on a while on this project for a metroidvania.
I am focusing on the technology itself to allow for people to easily create metroidvanias and content for games designed for the engine and less on the game itself.

I think I got it on a state that its worth posting on agdg places.

You can find the code and stuff over gitgud.io/LynxVania

To take it a step further,

I am a huge fan of "Advanced Tactics: Gold", which, is a Matrix Games product, but which basically has one dude at the helm, and that is great, because it's easily the best war sim on the market at this time. The reason we like it, is because the engine is truly a clockwork of war and battle. It allows you to see, each unit, and their rolls against the enemy. It allows you to see the cogs, if not the mainspring, of something we study called "war and battle"

However, imagine if, you could snap into a "superhot" sort of gameplay, within AT:G, during battle. Suddenly the battle which takes five seconds, can take an hour. You are one man, on that hexfield, and you can literally, run from Germany to Moscow, getting 10,000 slow motion kills. Hah! You just visualized it and know what I mean!

So, in some ways this ties back to Max Payne, another game I would throw onto OP's table. Version one, had time dilation effect, we all loved it. Max Payne as a title was ruined then. Completely. However time dilation effect, as proven by superhot, has the power to alter gameplay itself. Indeed I wonder now that I described it, how long it will be until we have all war sims with a first-person mode, so you can go in, and be that superhero, on the battlefield. Obviously when we see it we will know it, but, actual war may come first.

This thought occurs to me in BF2 mods I play where I wish they had a slow motion button, it's just fun, to play in slo mo. However some players do not like it. Again, Max Payne brought what? Most of the elements had been used before, but bullet time, is something that even right now, is an untapped realm. I don't play console games or steam or anything recent, so if there are better games with time dilation than max payne or superhot then mention them because it could make your heartbreaker game from the past, relevant tomorrow. Hence when they release "Max Payne: Superhot edition" is it retro or new?

Fuuuuuuuuuuck! Thanks so much for turning me to this.
That is an amazing quake mod, using darkplaces!

>Perhaps it is true that people play "dating sims" but know they will never go on a date.
https://homeward.renai.us/ I think dating sims are pretty good, though I have been on a date. Sims are better.

>I play war games that allow me to understand war
What aspect of war? Strategy?

I guess the only thing like a war sim I have played is Slay. You ever play Slay?

I had more than 200 games bought on steam
I had more than 50 games on CD/DVD
I don't regret losing steam which was fucking with me.
I don't regret the games,no, that isn't what heartbroke me.
I regret that people look at me differently.
Like if I was a madman to say
>I care about my freedom
Why are people so disgusted when I just say that I want to be able to control my computer ?
I don't say anything when they use a hammer or any random tool.

Anyway I am happy to see that people are making game engines under free software like openmw or falltergeist.
It would be great when the content will be under a copyleft license too.

Completely understand. I told a friend of mine "I quite liked the Doom3-BFG edition" and he said "I didn't realise you played those kind of games." I then mumbled something about freedom and changed the subject.
On a separate occasion with my two other friends "Hey, lets install windows on your computer so we can all play lan together." I said "Proprietary software will never touch that machine!" At which point they both looked at me with such contempt, then there was a long period of silence.
I have told them enough times how I feel about it, but they seem to genuinely not understand and look away after a few seconds. It's like trying to tell a cow they are going to become steak.

It says to "play games and love life" but we are not allowed to love cute young girls as child brides, so how can we love life? Women banned this 100 years ago.

I only say that because of that line that plays, "you bitch ass nigga, me and my dindus are gonna make you join the NAACP" at the end.

Are you the anon that made the metropolitan breach? If I recall, it was originally intended to be in the moonman mod.

Yeah, slade is the only real choice. Doom builder also apparently runs well in wine. Neither have the 3d display stuff though. I haven't edited levels so I don't know how much of an advantage that is.

It's a week old news, but gzdoom officially went GPL.

This is a major fucking game changer. It means Zandronum being under a GPL compatible license can can be used to play GZDoom. http://zandronum.com/
For the free culture enthusiast you could even use freedoom and the libre licensed mods.

On 2nd thought well fug it, continue anyway with dat sprites and I will add it.

New test version 1.4.0 Test7, same link as before
-Added some new particle effects
-Hitler Gas projectiles is changed
-All Chaingun like weapons accuracy got buffed
-Hitler chaingun does 8 damage now instead of 5
-Hitler flamethrower behavior is changed a bit
Sorry for the weirdly formatted changlog this time I will correct it on the next version.

But Skullcrap always used some code for GZDoom? Also I am wondering if Graf is ever going to bother adding additional shading stuff for Models since they dont right now.

>But Skullcrap always used some code for GZDoom?
No sorry, I got a little excited/carried away when I saw the news. For a start, it "could", not "can" but they have their own code base so it's not as easy as I thought.

Well, it seems Ryan hasn't done anything with it for ~8 months. And no one else is far ahead in commits, so it's not been picked up by anyone else.

What's worse I believe croteam were holding off for ryan to finish his commits to merge before making updates. What a fucking let down, it won't even compile.

Anyone else feel like a complete retard playing Arx?

There were three points in the game when I felt utterly beaten and had to resort to a walk through.

The first locks the second - temple
Finding the rebel hideout
Final Akbaa's rock

Is Arx a game for smart gamers? Because personally, playing the game felt the dev was saying "like my game? fuck you, dumbass, I'm too smart to be wasting my time making a game for the likes of you."

Also, I never bothered to read the manual until way after I finished the game. If you haven't started yet, read the manual first.
