Finding freelance jobs or 3D work is surprisingly straightforward, once you know where to look and how to find it. Getting it, on the other hand, depends on other factors.
An Interview with (lead) "world designer" on Funcom's Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures discussing the trails and tribulations of developments as well as the process of creating the dungeons and world of Hyborian Adventures.
An interview with MrLyCon, one of the level designers working on Funcom's Conan : Hyborian Adventures, who found some time to talk about their use of GTK Radiant for developing content for a none id software game and engine.
Well here we are, finally made it. A review of the latest Medal of Honor game; Pacific Assault. It's no coincidence that last sentence is worded like that - "finally made it" - because that about sums up the action in Pacific Assault; it's brutal.
A. T. I. One word, three letters.... I have seen the future and it shaped like that little red and white logo thingy they use..! A friend recently bought the kick ass, pint in glass, 64MB DDR Radeon; I never saw it, he'd put it into his machine as soon as he got it (duuhhh.!).
One of the greatest mysteries of the universe, the Q3A game server, is revealed here. See it in all it's glory and understand it's unfathomable depths.... mmmm, not quite, read this though and you be on the path of enlightenment.
Are you using a 28/33/56k (analogue) modem access to the web. Yes? Then read on.. the following applies to playing a game and setting up a server with a 28/33/56k modem.
Did you know you can customise your network settings to get the best performance out of your connection to the internet for online game play? Although writing this from the point of view of a 56k'er it equally applies to broadband connections (LAN included).
Updated article on the real world implications and practicalities of working as a freelance 3D artist and how much you should charge for your work.
A list of some of the more common locations for skill trainers in Oblivion.
Why do some players take exception to being beaten by a female character? Or is it just my imagination (and I do have a very active one..!)? Do they really think there is a girl behind the player who just whipped their ass, surely not, girls aren't that good are they?
I 'happened' upon a game the other day where someone was using an 'AimBot'. Now, I've heard the 'folklore' and 'tales' and read articles about them but I'd never actually come across one.
Yes I know this isn't quite a Quake 3 Arena matter but I just know you're gonna be interested in this one non the less.
First off..... this mission pack is hardware future-proofed - at least for the next 6 months anyway..! To get these new maps and bots to run smoothly (a minimum 50fps in the 'big bits' of the maps) you're gonna need one hell of a system spec!.
You can find out if your card supports DX8 by taking a look at the installation 'read me' file. The read-me usually contain the latest breaking news that wasn't put into the manual.
A good friend of mine persuaded me to get the very cool Myst III Exile ('point and click' for those that don't know it), and suggested it might run better if I installed DX8.
This applies to adding bots from the game server only. If you are running a non dedicated game (a normal game) it's best to use the 'in game' menu ('Esc' key if you're already playing a game) to add/remove bots.
'..what's in a name? Is not a rose a rose by any other name...' to miss-quote good ol' Shakin'Spear!.
An important thing to do that's often overlooked when trying to get the best performance for Q3A out of your on the installation disc.
