Pic of the Week!
I have added a new pic
of the week! It shows myself using the dark side
of the force (bwahahahahaha). I use a 56K modem in the
UK to do my Deathmatching... you can see from the
picture that I really can be an evil bastard! I
hope to write a multiplayer guide soon to help you hone
Bug in Zoners Half-Life Tools!!!
I have reports that
Zoners Half-Life tools 2.1.1 have a bug in them :( It
isn't a big bug really but it may be affecting some
of you mappers out there. He are the goods:
are some problems with 2.1.0/2.1.1 and the light bleed
fix (esp with things like world brushes 1 unit off
the floor, and other mapper tricks to keep r_speeds
down). I'm working on getting it totaly perfect (its
about 95 done now), but until the meantime you can
just use -nobleedfix on the command line to hlrad
until 2.1.2 is released.

a quick note to you guys to let you know something.
Some of the sniper rifles in the mod will be like
the one is Soldier Of Fortune. I saw this in action
this weekend it looked sweet.
That sounds really cool...
over their and support them!
Team still got bugs!
It has come to light
that the Action
Half-Life team still have bugs that are stoping
them from releasing the next version of Action Half-Life.
I saw this at the mods home page:
to some concerns with the weapons (mainly the Akimbos
& Handcannon), I've added in support for lag compensation
and weapon prediction. All the basics for it have
already been done and testing is under way. There
are quite a few animation problems with it at the
moment, but these will be dealt with shortly, as well
as any problems that crop up (ie. Full-auto client
side Handcannon... oops).
This means another delay, which I apologise for.
It should be worth it though, so, err, yeah.
I really hope that these
bug get straightened out soon! I really miss the game!
As I'm sure a lot of people do.
