Re: Pick 3 of your most-played maps from the 2018 AMC.

You should also have added the option "None". I doubt that 95% of the people here (me included) have been playing any of those maps in the past months. The attention and replayability level that maps overall had even 10 years ago was already in a steady decline, since there is an oversaturation of m...

Re: Finding the best FireOffset for weapon viewmeshes

Yes, although for the first-person view itself, I did another step: I would often set the camera and mesh in the 2D view, and then I would check how it looked like in the 3D view, and adjust in the 2D view. Also, albeit I am not entirely sure (it's been many years since I last looked at any of this,...

Re: Finding the best FireOffset for weapon viewmeshes

Well, I am not aware of any tools, but here's what worked for me, especially during the development of NW3: first I would do a preliminary compilation of the package with the weapon mesh in it, then I would open it in UnrealEd, and place the weapon somewhere in a map (I generally used CTF-Face for t...

Re: Tim or not Tim? money or not money?

Disgusting. When your workers are reaching the 60h weekly mark in a consistent basis, there's where you have to draw the line and admit you have a problem, and either take a step back and slow things down, or hire more. Although unlike many similar companies, these workers are actually getting their...

Re: Looking for someone to help make a "lite" version of New

Sorry, but no, I am not interested, nor do I have the time to invest into something like this right now, even if payment would be involved. However, as you also mentioned Higor, I believe he already developed a couple of things, which along with his own XC_Engine may perhaps solve most of the proble...

Re: DM-SteelPro-1on1

From the screenshots at least, the dark version is fairly different from the light version in terms of the texture choices. If the dark one was simply an inversion of the used textures used in the light version, probably more would prefer the dark, however the dark texture used in the dark version d...

Re: problem with weapon graphics

For the sake of correctness, this is not a v451 bug, the real bug lies in v436 in respect on how it handles masked textures imported through "exec" directives. You see, many mods (including a few of my own past ones, when I didn't know any better) import textures in compilation time with the wrong f...

Re: Spawning a message window without a custom ServerPackage

3 months later... :tongue: But in the case of JavaScript in a browser, I *could* achieve my aim if a website already uses existing libraries or packages. For example, let's say some website uses the "FancyBox" library to display lightbox-style messages in the browser. I could then make use of the (a...

Re: Looking for someone to help make a "lite" version of New

The minute you allow clients to have say on their location over what the server thinks it should be you'll have a bunch of people cheating the record times. Not necessarily. Client may have a say on their location and other things, and still have it remain a secure system by having the server check...

Re: NW3 Issue

It seems like an engine crash while trying to spawn a decal, there's really nothing I can do to fix it. Decals in this engine are a bit unstable, and NW3 uses a lot of decals, especially for the gore addon, as well as all the debris effects it has. How often does that crash happen to you? Or was it ...

Re: CTF-Blice (WIP)

Well, as for updates, I don't really have any worthwhile I'm afraid. :noidea I paused the development of this map temporarily a few days after back then, because I was honestly getting tired of it and running out of ideas on how to work in the other areas, so I decided to do something else (UT-unrel...

Re: Epic games releases...spyware?

This is steering into a political debate, which I am not really getting much into because I have a very strong opinion concerning how many US citizens see their "rights" and their "freedom", when most US problems have been solved in almost every other developed country already by effective governmen...

Re: Epic games releases...spyware?

So I'm honestly curious about something... What would the evidence need to be that would cause you to have concern? (to anyone) If someone demonstrates that Epic is actually sending sensitive information away that should never leave your computer under any circumstance, ever, such as saved password...

You will probably notice some minor issues with 2D line rendering in the 2D viewports.
