What happened to the code, Paul and Maxim (the mapper) on June 14.

Posted by on

One day on June 14, Paul and Maxim left our THS development chats at the same time. I decided to ask what happened to Pavel, but he said

"It makes no sense for me to be here now, with your friends from Samara you can go far away, after all. Yes, the situation is casual, but we forget thousands of things every day, let this be one of them.
Yes, I guess it turns out I'm a cheater, gay and rotten,
But still, at least he left beautifully ... ".

(Later I will tell what about "friends from Samara")

I told him back:
"I realized that already tired to keep ths, so maybe it would be better for us to let him go together, leave until better times(

You are not a thrower, you were a good coder)"

In fact I never said I was working on ths 24/7, I work on it sometimes for a couple months and then quit again once a year. That's the kind of unusual person I am. All words lead to the fact that THS will die forever, but I won't let this happen. Let THS not know when it will be in game form, but I at this (and future) time want to experiment with it in another way.I won't talk about this experiment yet, maybe I will still have time to say. But never admit that THS is dead forever, it lives, even in my heart, and will live.

However, in order not to remain empty I asked Pavel for the code, but he answered directly
"https://youtu.be/3QhJqSNRV80" is the same as "you're fucked" in English.

So I don't even know when to release the beta. But maybe after decades you will find THS at all in a surprisingly unusual place?


And friends from Samara are just my mapper friend who we sometimes talk to and sometimes help out at a friend's place.

With Pavel I also tried to email Neil (the creator of They Hunger) to learn something about him and the plot and the development of THS, but he once answered and the next times did not answer
Us:
"Hello Neil, (i think this mail is alive )
I'm Kirill Davydkin, with Pavel Karpovich, wants make a rebuild (rework, rewrite) of they hunger lost souls. Someone released a 2008/04 build on mod DB, i see this build in 2019, we love the They hunger franchise very much and want to make the franchise again alive. So we started to make this game, from the 2008/04 build, playable. And we touched the " wall ".That wall isn't passable, because we don't have source files or the newest build. We can create maps from screenshot, but we don't know how accurate the plot maps will be. So we need :
1 - The newest build if source filed losted
2 - Source .dll files if nothing losted .The work will be released June , or July anyway if you give us source files or not. But if you give us source files we can create"they hunger lost souls rebuild "more carefully without errors.But at build released in 2022 from mod DB there are few bugs like: - No fire, weapons and prop_vehicle buggy tooWe will believe that someday you will give us the source files, and we will not give them to anyone and will only use them in they hunger rebuild ."

He:

"Hi Kirill, There is no build for Lost Souls out there. All that could be out there is partial, incomplete stuff. Only Einar and I had the full game. And, I no longer have the game.

Cyas,

~n "



I wrote about this very late, no offense. Love, kisses(on the cheek) and big hugs to everyone waiting for They Hunger. (If you suddenly thought someone was g@y, you're wrong, in Russia it's normal.)


______ On Russian

Однажды, 14 июня, Павел и Максим одновременно покинули наши чаты по разработке THS. Я решил спросить, что случилось с Павлом, но он сказал.

"Мне нет смысла ныне здесь быть, с друзьями из Самары ты далеко можешь уйти ведь. Да, ситуация казусная, но ведь мы забываем тысячи вещей каждый день, пусть это будет одна из них.
Да, наверное получается я кидала, гей и гнида,
Но всё равно, зато ушёл красиво... ".

(Позже я расскажу, об "друзьях из Самары").

Я сказал ему в ответ: "

  • Я понял что уже устали держать ths, так что может быть и будет нам лучше отпустить его вместе, оставить до лучших времён(Ты не кидала, ты был хорошим кодером)

На самом деле я никогда не говорил, что работаю над ths 24/7, я работаю над ним иногда пару месяцев, а потом снова бросаю раз в год. Вот такой я необычный человек.
Все слова ведут к тому, что THS умрет навсегда, но я не позволю этому случиться. Пусть THS неизвестно когда появится в игровой форме, но я в это (и будущее) время хочу поэкспериментировать с ней другим способом. Я пока не буду говорить об этом эксперименте, может быть, еще успею сказать. Но никогда не признавайте, что THS умер навсегда, она живет, даже в моем сердце, он будет жить.

Однако, чтобы не оставаться пустым местом, я спросил у Павла код, но он ответил прямо "https://youtu.be/3QhJqSNRV80"
Так что я даже не знаю, когда выйдет бета версия. Но, может быть, спустя десятилетия вы вообще найдете THS в удивительно необычном месте?

И друзья из самры - это просто мой друг маппер, с которым мы иногда разговариваем и иногда помогаем у друг-друга.


С павелом я так же пытался присылать на почту Neil (создатель They Hunger) хуть что-то узнать о нём и сюжете и разработке THS,но он один раз ответил и в следующие разы не отвечал
Мы:

А Неил ответил:

Я написал об этом очень поздно, без обид. Люблю, целую(в щёку) и обнимаю сильно всех ожидающих They Hunger.

Я ещё когда-то чутка пытался переносить TH на Left 4 Dead 2, компания называлась reflammable и разработка была с 2019 года для сервера Zombie Ops. Но щас я пока этим не хочу заниматься.photo 2022 05 21 21 25 33

Ouch, the thought that even Neil doesn't have the most complete build of They Hunger Lost Souls is sadly disheartening. All that work to be lost forever?

Oh. I was following TH since i saw back ages ago that someone rebuilding it. Followed it since there. I really hope to see TH maybe in other form. It was rad mod for HL1 (one of most well crafted total conversions) and i had, and still have, big hopes for THR .

That sucks. Maybe you can try contacting Einar, hoping that he still has the source code with him and is willing to share it with you. I think you can reach out to him through his gmail if his old email does not work.
