 update - progress ... >kat<
We got thru the 1st beta test without any major problems, just a few tweeks here and there that solve some gameplay related issues (for the better..!), so if all goes well, should be releasing soon.

 screen shots...episode2 ... >kat<
Work has slowed a little over this new year period (too much eating, drinking, TV...) but to keep you going here are some screenies from 'episode2'. They're quite dark again so if you can't see much click the text links below for gamma corrected version (1.35gamma)...

 update - Nov... >kat<
second weekend session of coding and mappin'..! We managed to get alot done, most to do with some features important to the game & gameplay. The storyline has been refined (reason for being) which will help the voice work and we're about done with episode1. Once the current tweeks are done it's onto voicing the cast and alpha testing... it's getting close..!

 update - Nov... >kat<

phorrr..! 1st big 'session' spent on the mod (2.5 days solid flew past). Managed to get the base design sorted out for the general interface - it'll look familiar - took a bit longer than expected but we got it sorted. Also managed to figured out how to get some of the main game related features working properly that had been puzzling us for sometime.

Optimized map work a bit more to get smoother bot play and did some general work on the voice scripting...!

We didn't seem to do much, but on reflection we covered a lot of material that had been wanting for some time.. we've now got a better ideas as to what still needs to be done, so the ETA is one step closer (still not sure when that will be mind you ..! "when it's ready..!")

 screen shots... episode1 ... >kat<
Some screen shots from the upcoming SP map 'episode1'. They may be a bit on the dark side as the setting for the map is night time...
