A Stwalarts Tale Development Update #11

November 22, 2009 Leave a comment

Holy crap, the largest source mod since the games inception…the largest source code mod in my entire game development career. It has been finished. This new system is one-hundred twenty-six million, thats 126.000.000 times more efficient. It will never de-synchronize either. The FPS of the game has been drastically improved to 64 making things so much more fluid. Special thanks to Scorpious2k for all his coding help.

I am going to be working straight on the games development now…only one more month to go.

A Stwalarts Tale Development #10

November 20, 2009 1 comment

It’s been a while since i’ve done a development update. Okay so, Implementation is what i’d like to call this stage. All the work I have been talking about on the item database the quest database it’s really paying off in organization and rebalancing the game. Everything is much friendlier and casual, but there are still hardcore features. Im also fixing bugs inside the engine…

Visual Basic Coding ...Fun

Right now I have all the tier 1 items entered into the game. Including quest items. However I have a lot of quests to re-do, which means that npc drops have to be redone. Plus I have additional quests that i’m adding into the older areas of the game.  The beta test contained 10 tier 1 quests. Version 1.0 will have 20 tier 1 quests. On top of that I will have 7 treasure finding side-quests. With the new item database I also have to re-write a lot of scripts and code with new variable numbers so it’s kind of annoying. Almost all quest dialogue has been changed.

The game will launch with tier 1 and 2 content. The tier 3 content is going to be released shortly after launch as an expansion. Shortly after launch we hope to have around 60 quests in the game.

Good News

There will be no delay…I have finished the items database tier 1. The 2nd and third tiers will be there by launch everything will be on schedule. The quests database has been finished as well.

Possible Delay

The re-launch might be delayed until early 2010, due to the awesome games coming out lately and my ideas about reconstructing a lot of game data. The whole game is basically getting a huge re-balance. I’m going to do an eclipse only beta so the first users are going to be coming from there, if I cannot finish the new item database and re-do all of the quests by Nov 20th. The game will have to be delayed until 2010. So stay tuned until then to find out if I make the deadline.

Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 Reveiw

November 12, 2009 Leave a comment

Oh my god…Was this awesome. Modern Warfare 2 is one game I stood in line for at midnight, I was 6th in line and I got my free poster. I rushed home as quickly as I could popped it in got my mountain dew and played through the first three single player levels.  I then fell asleep for about 2 hrs and continued playing until noon when I beat single player. After that I worked on the multiplayer portion reaching rank 22 before finnaly my controllers died. I was enthralled.

Single player is awesome over the top experience with all kinds of sections that make the game you really need to experience go out and buy the game if you haven’t already.

Multiplayer is too new to really make a judgement but everything including the kitchen sink has been thrown in. I love it i’m now rank 26 and still everything feels new. I haven’t even touched most of the guns i’ve unlocked. Enough about that you want a reveiw so here it is.

Single player is full of scripted events filled with action packed context sensitive sequences. It involves you as a soldier in a time of crisis. World War 3…suddenly after an assault on an airport with a downed american soldier the russians are crying for blood. Makarov the prophet behind Zackayev has put together the events that start world war 3. And so goes journey through virginia and burger town all the way east to our nations capitol Washington D.C. however, Makarov doesn’t like that your in Washington and decides to nuke it. So now everythings been E.M.P.’ed and no electronics or communications work…except for in one area. The White House.

Meanwhile an old friend is found in some russian gulag and he goes batshit crazy on a revenge quest that results in one of the most awesome endings to a video game ever…albeit a tad far fetched.

*Update, I just played through the co-op campaign a bit…and let me say it’s awesome they didn’t even have to throw this in…it’s a whole ‘nother game with enough content to keep me busy for a month. It revolves around completing special challanges alone or with a friend…such as hold off a wave of enemy assaults…and no 2 are alike. Plus there are seperate maps in these that are not seen anywhere else.

Multiplayer…

Its fucking call of duty…go play it.

Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 is MY game of the year. Simply because it’s awesome…I got my bang for my buck…A game that I can spend 40Hrs on and not finish everything. Plus…Cpt Price.
