Internal beta testing has begun on the first standalone much sooner than anticipated. It's a nail biting time for us as we receive the first feedback on the technical hurdles we had to overcome, and no-one likes bug reports as much as our fine betatest team, who really know how to destroy a great game in a constructive and uncompromising way. ;) Cyrri our bot master has been working with our PsychicPad who knows the WoP bots behaviour intimately, but it seems that Psychic took no notice of those early news items and so he got a rude awakening from his first encounter with the newly enhanced standalone bots who OWNED him in no time at all. :O
By the way the MODDB Mod of the Year Awards 2006 are over now and we got honorably mentioned for "Visuals" and "Upcoming Standalone" within the Editor's Choice Awards. That's more we ever expected! Many thanks for that.
Harmonieman one of our mappers and a member of the first hour had the honour to give an interview on eSportsTV. Please check out the 'In the Spotlight' feature and download the whole audio interview here. (Beware of his english!)
i meant Universal Binary, so intel macs can run this game nativly. (if its run nativly on the mac, performance will not be cut because its not a power pc mac)
Can't wait for the stand alone version!
our macmaster IG confirmend that
"yes, it will be a universal binary"
"some PPC's may need lower settings to cope" ;)
Black Mesa fanboys be damned, this should've won!
i so cant wait for this on my mac, will it be a UB?
professional, as usual
i can't wait for the standalone either, i'd even pay you guys for this. everything you do is done so professionally it continues to blow your mind.
Great stuff, looks excellent.
I am not sure what you said PVT Johnson, but WoP will be compatible with Windows, Linux and mac. With seperate installers for each, all released at the same time. Also at some time soon i may get some screenshots of the maps at angles that really will show you the huge scale of the maps. You are only as big as a grasshopper in there. ;>
I need to get used to this comments system i cant believe i put my username in the subject box.. GG X.X
I will get the macmaster IG to answer that one for you. =>
this is great news, my intel mac should handle this fine on maxed settings.........
