Breaking the silence

Post by Shana » Tue Oct 07, 2014 6:48 pm

Surprise! We still exist!


We have a hotfix in the works to address some of the problems that have been plaguing OC the last few months, it will fix the now-broken mounting system and improve stability of both the client and server.
Because this hotfix requires new binaries for both the server and client, you can expect a few new features too. Everyone who donated after the 1.35 release will finally get their donor access as well.

Sadly we can't give you an ETA just yet due to slow progress, our biggest problem is the lack of coders actively working on the code.
Some are too busy with their job or education while others simply don't feel like working on the code or haven't been in contact with the team for months.

That's why we're actively looking for new coders to ensure OC has a future, so if you:
  • Are proficient with C++, git and Source
  • (Beneficial, but is not mandatory) have experience with graphics and shaders (especially with regard to Source)
  • Are able to communicate with the team (not just language barriers, etc. but also whether you can work with team members without attitudes and all getting in the way)
  • Have enough time to work on a project like this (of course real life still takes priority, but you should at least be able to work on the mod somewhat regularly)
... Then post an application on the forums, send it via Email (info@obsidianconflict.net) or message one of our team members directly!
Of course we are always looking for other positions like mapping and modeling too, so don't be shy!


A big "Thank you!" to everyone who hasn't given up on us yet and sorry for not getting back to you sooner. We're going to post news more often from now on, even if it's just a small update to keep you in the loop.

I'm so hyped for the Source 2013 version. Also thanks for giving out an announcement, now people will know that this mod is still being worked on and living.

In the mean time please consult this Mount Fix guide here http://obsidianconflict.net/forums/view ... f=1&t=5106 as this will allow players and server admins alike to install and use OC while the update is being worked on. With Neico and a few others I personally tested this through some test servers and found no issues so far. Other servers have already implemented this fix including the official OC "Melonpan" server so there's a few servers active still.

Shoudn't it be linked in the official website? I think you guys might be losing some players.

That's not really the problem, people are actually waiting for the Steam release and play that instead of the current one. Also a majority of them are too lazy to do the mount fix and await the proper fixed up version.

Actually it's mainly cause the mount fix is a long process. It usually only needs to be done once. It's still worth it as it's a means of keeping oc running for now.
