Obsidian Conflict Devblog Video #1

Post by Shana » Fri Nov 18, 2011 11:25 pm

We've been quiet for too long again, heck, we almost could have reused the news post from last Christmas by now.


So, to break the silence, we present you the first one of our "Dev Blog" Videos.
Those should allow us to give you guys a more constant stream of news posts, since we can show a lot more WIP and experimental stuff that way without focusing too much on full-fledged, pretty looking news.

[BBvideo]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FNJmVVgf65g?hd=1[/BBvideo]

Remember most of the stuff shown is more or less work in progress and thus subject to change, but feel free to tell us what you think still!

This is really cool, a lot more changes and improvements than I was expecting. My only problem is the fact that you guys apparently improved the accuracy of Vortigaunts, in which I thought they were already basically 'aimbotters' to begin with?

Not a complaint, just wondering why. :P

Vorts actually missed players most of the time unless you were standing still, and even then they sometimes still missed.
Some of their "updates" that came with the release of the orangebox must have messed with that, just like how their melee attack was suddenly no more. Now they are back to how they are supposed to be (Since this is also how they fight other NPCs, it was just broken for players.)

Great job guys, you have definitely made some progress. A lot of that stuff looks professional(not sure if that's the right word, just trying to say it does not look hacky). Now I'm really looking forward to more!

I will donate some of my code stuff if you guys want it(like the per-projectedtexture blur and atten keyvalues along with my SetCurrentWeaponProficiency input for NPCs). Just tell me who to send it too.

That would be cool, Tesla had some trouble with the per-pt blur if I remember right.

I would contact Tesla, but hes been offline in Steam for the past week. Should I PM him using this forum or email him? Or is he busy right now?

Maybe I should contact Neico or z33ky? I already have Neico on Steam.

Heck, I never knew Vorts had a melee attack. I knew they had scripted execution sequences, but never knew they had an actual melee combat animation. Are you sure that this fix in their aim isn't going to cause any maps to become unnecessarily difficult? Not trying to nag, just saying that their aim is bloody damn well good in the video, and I think being able to dodge their shots is important and really the only way counter Vortigaunts.

I wonder if my input SetCurrentWeaponProficiency would work for the Vorts.

Edit:

Nope. Probably because they don't use a gun.

Also, my Vorts always hit me. Perfect shot every time.
