Well I was pretty busy in the last days with school AND with the new Code that comes with 1.35 which will make some people out there quite happy.
There are some things that i want to show of, first of the newly added Donator Feature which means that everyone who Donates to OC will get a special feature.
For now the only feature that Donators will get is Name Coloring and that in Chat, Scoreboard, TargetID and Deathnotice. The Color is based on the Flashlight Color and is only visible when you also check the Custom Color Checkbox. Here some screens about it:
Well and another thing that i wanted to talk about is the newly Addon System…
As I quick added it from my 1.4 code doesn’t it feature everything that i planned on 1.4 with it as I’m a bit limited in the current code.
By Default are there the following addons: ep2, episodic, lostcoast, css, dod which only get loaded when the correspondenting mount is also loaded
also noted should be that the system only reconizes the folder under extras as addon if the folder contains a info.txt while it doesn’t matter if it conains anything, it just have to exist, the general addon infos are then in the info.txt and even if it’s empty it will at least know the name by it’s folder name and the path of course. I hope that some people will like it, for me was it important to get rid of that useless “throw anything into the oc folder and die”
As everything does the Addon system also have it’s downside (which i tried to get rid of in 1.4 but didn’t had the time yet): The more addons you load, the longer the loading time as the addons are basically nothing more then extra search paths which the engine goes trough each time something needs to be loaded like a model or a sound (one thing why GMod get’s slower with each addon too)
you just have to bear with it for the moment as i won’t spend too much time in coding 1.35 as i want to get back to 1.4 as soon as possible
Well that should be everything for now, keep watching my blog in the near future as the 1.35 release is near and i might show some other exclusive things and of course present the release with a blog post.
Also, everything i say here about 1.35 might change on some parts as it’s not release yet 😛
PS: I’ve created an TeamSpeak 3 Server for Obsidian some days ago (IP is: ts.obsidianconflict.net:9988), i’m pretty much always online there but that doesn’t mean that i’m actually there nor that i’m in the mood to talk english as i lack that a bit as good as my writing is, sadly but i try it at least 😛
<(‘-‘<) Well see you around (>’-‘)> (i love that chilling smily)
Well, what could i say? I’m really busy with school right know so i didn’t managed it to do any coding for Obsidian Conflict, which is a shame, specially because i started to work on Version 1.4 which is basically a start from Scratch.
I tought that it would be the best since so much has changed due the last SDK Code Update, it also is a chance for me to integrate each oc code piece so that i can check it for possible bugs on the way.
Well i will see if i get the time in my summer holidays which will be in around ~6 Weeks.
I also made an TF2 Server on our new Server ( games1.yas-online.net:27200 ) which i was working on the last days, it’s still under development since i need to write alot of stuff via SourceMod, but it runs pretty smooth already, it’s just that there aren’t always many people on there (but when there are is the server mostly full)
I also found yesterday a new Game called “Osu!”, it’s basically like Audiosurf but with many more features and options in my opinion. One good thing about it is that you don’t have to have the music file on your computer, you just need to download the beatmap from their site and you are good to go.
Take a visit there: http://osu.ppy.sh/
Here are some screenshoots from the “Catch the Beat” Gamemode:
As you can see do i use the Lucky Star Skin that is downloadable via Updater under Extras.
Also, Assassins Creed 2 will come out at November, it looks very good so far and i’m very much looking forward to play Alatair again even tough they seem to have a PS3 Only version in doing. I just hope they will release the PC Version soon after it.
Well that is all for now, i just hope i get the time to post more and do more coding 😉
Finally… and on an very good server too yay 😀 now things are going very much better then before.
I don’t want to post more because i have some other stuff to do (putting bugtracker and wiki back online and install an webserver etc.) so i just say: “HAI IMA BACKZ BITCHEZ!!!!111oneoneoneeleven”
Edit: Wiki and Bugtracker are back online, now to the Mail server…
There we go, we got it finally out some hours ago (was in hurry to get to school so i wasn’t able to write here, i also didn’t had any sleep tonight :/)
This patch really is it worth downloading since it got more things into it as orginally planned…
like: It has now Custom Colors for Grenades RPGs SLAMs and Sniper.
basically do i don’t have any much to say about it but that there will be of cource more updates, but until then enjoy OC 1.34 😀
I was working in the last days on putting SVN back online but via Apache and not as a stand alone anmore because with the Apache implementation do i just have more poisbillitys to do what i want it to…
Anyways here is how you can get access again for it:
Go to your ObsidianSVN Folder in Steam/Steamapps (orfor example the OC Sourcemod folder), do an right mouse click and do:
TortoiseSVN -> Relocate… -> http://svn.neic0.de/oc/trunk (was svn://neic0.de/oc/trunk, just for the record) -> press OK
i hope that is helps out enaugh :O and saves me some troubles…
also for some of you might noticed that you now also can look into the SVN folders by entering that url into the webbrowser (which didn’t work before)
As i said before i will re-install the server, but i will do it later when i come back from School, the Server itself will then be down for like 4 hours then should this Blog at least up again and i hope that everything will work out as i want it to be…
btw. i’m going to try it now with openSuSE 10.3 + Plesk and see if it works right, i also would have the option to manually download plesk and install it on Debian 4.0, but only if the combination of suse don’t work out
i’ll will also probably let the TS2 Server Down until TS3 finally comes out, it wasn’t used that much anyways…
So then good night (3:00 AM here) and we will hopefully see us here again soon 😀
Edit: Servers back, took me a bit longer as i tought… and i’m still at configuring some things, it’s really a lot of work to get back to the old state but it really looks very promising so far.
stay tuned to see more of me 😛
I can’t belive it, i just checked my E-Mails and noticed a Mail i got from Strato some time ago that they are upgrading their Homepage and some other stuff, i was like “hmm sounds interesting let’s see if it has something good for me”
I already noticed today that my server runs very good (which is very rare due the RAM problem) so i checked it and OMGWTFBBQ i have 300 MB RAM free (in fact i can now use up to 512 MB RAM). They really upgraded my server, but not only that i now have a second IP for it too, also there are some new OS in the list so i will probably change my server to one of those soon since i don’t like it how the current one stays…
anyways just wanted to yell it out, i’ll look forward to get finally something done on my server…
also maybe someone could help me a bit with chosing the OS ( The current running OS is in the combo box on the top of this image, the one i would install is blue highlighted )
Well, school is keeping me busy and getting the Driving licence is also something i need to complete on these days so i kind of have no hand for anything but sleeping…
I also don’t have much to say but that Obsidian Conflict 1.34 will be released very soon, and with some luck OC will also be one of the next Mods that get Steam Support (we don’t know for sure, the only thing i can say for sure is that we are on Valves List which is a step in the right direction)
Still OC has many bugs that need to take care of and some things also need a bit of a re-design but that is just something we can’t do unless we know that Obsidian can stay where it were before Mods got Steam Support
I also have been doing some work on my Lua Lib wich will get added to Obsidian someday i guess, but since i don’t have that much time i barly got an interface to work with, i also have some things left like: _G = nil protection and so on…
I guess it’s the best to ask if anyone has questions or something you want me to show here (maybe a review section or something like that i don’t know give me some advices :P)
To say it short: i just visited my blog today and tought: “Oh my gawd this blog is so old and outdated, and since i don’t post here anyways i’ll start from scratch”
So i installed a fresh new WordPress with a new Theme which i like more as the last one…
many things happend since i last posted here and i will count now some of those (could get bigger as i want):
- I decited to put Ecchi-RO (Virgin-RO) into the background since i have some other more important things to take care of…
- YaM is on an tempoary halt (more about why see below)
- I have been added as an “Support Coder” for Obsidian Conflict, and therefore will post here some things about the daily life about being an Developer for a HL2 Mod which is quite popular 😛
- I started to develop my own Game Engine which only process is currently an Window, but this will change hopefully (i started it because there are some things where i need Skidz or Hyperjag3 and since they aren’t online for a while i decited to waste my time with something else until they get back)
hmm… i think that’s all for now, i will update this when something pops up in my mind about that…
Edit: i will go over to post weekly or when i’m really busy monthly, so don’t wonder when there isn’t anything new yet…
