I started source mapping ! It's pretty hard , and if you're a beginner it sound like a better idea to start hl1 mapping first .

And even though I'm expert in hl1 mapping(not from the point of view of arhitectural design and these kind of stuff) I surely lack of knowledge when it comes to source mapping.

But today I made a test map and I tried and succeded to make a door !!! :

So I was like "Omg this is ultra-cool" and I just stand there and open/close the door tens of times .

Well, yeah , anyway look at it ! It's soooo cute !!! I love it !

[EDIT] Oh ummm , I was very happy about my new video card because I can play all the actual games at full detail without framerates lower than 15 FPS.
But when I saw this..........

Colin Mcrae: Dirt2 .

Oh my god now I have to lower the resolution again !!! Argh X(

Not that the game will actualy look like this, but they're aiming for it . Wow...

[EDIT2] Well honestly, Code Masters is the new shit. Dirt,Grid ,Toca ... this are epic titles.In comparison with EA they're way much better. When I think of NFS I just think at Underground-That's all. But EA has succesfully installed failure in all of their new NFSs ...
Prostreet was like StupidStreet and now NFS UnderShit ....

Hey , I've been doing some experiments with my computer because it sometimes crashed. I scanned it with memtest but they are error-free.
I defragmented, downloaded the latest video drivers, virus-scans, used some maintenance programs etc...
And it still crashed(not often).
Well, today I made a a simple test.

1.Turn on the computer, open BIOS, let it warm a at about 30 degrees C.
2.Turn on the computer, don't open BIOS for warming.
I repeated this several times. I did this when it was cold in my room, because it's usually cold in my room when I begin my PC activity.

So what are the results of these tests ?
When I applied 1, it never crashed.
When I applied 2, it always crashed.

So this is kinda weird...

Hey, I got GMOD at last !!! Here's a pic of what I made using wiremod( I modified an airboat)

When you enter the airboat, the lights go on, and if you right-click a police siren can be heared and a wire-made police lights can be seen.

Sven Coop Campaign

It's time to kick ass and chew bubble gum , but I'm all outta good drivers .
Well , that's my story in a short line .
But the enthusiasm reappears in me , and I want to finish the Sven Coop Campaign . I have 2 maps done , and the third one started .
When I finish that too , all I have to do is learn again (2 months without mapping !! ) how to use the trigger_changelevel and info_landmark ..... and make the maps seamless or what ...

Here's a sample video of the beginning of the second map .

WATCH OUT , SPOILER !!!

Note : You even don't see an entrance in that room . That's what I was talking , I didn't made that seamless yet ...

[EDIT] You'll see a small blue laser beam . That's a path for the sven coop bots ( I have my f9 button binded to it , and I also use f9 for Fraps)

As with the new ISP and 6 mb/s I can afford to make a server.
My IP is Dynamic , so I made a DNS subdomain and downloaded a small program to update my IP change .

Here's the DNS adress : crystrikem.idle.ro

So , to connect to my server , you would open the console and type connect crystrikem.idle.ro

P.S. I made it a CS Map test server because the majority are making cs 1.6 maps ( trust me).

I will also need an experienced member's help . My skype ID is marcel_iubarel08 .(to see if the server is actually working , making him admin , plugins etc etc ....)

The server is running AmxModx , Respawn ( testing maps , duh ....) , SentryMod and a bunch of plugins .

[EDIT] Keep in mind , my time zone is GMT +2 . ( so if in UK is 19:00 pm , in my country it's 21:00 )

Problems over problems . The SvenCoop Campaign should have been finished over 2 moths ago . But , I bought a new video card , the mighty Ati Radeon HD 4850 and it's drivers can't handle correctly hammer 3.5 . But I can play games at a much more higher quality :) :) .
In the mean time , I made a wordpress blog with my funny DIY stuff.
Here's a link : http://sjackm.wordpress.com
Of course , it's in romanian ( maybe I'll consider doing something in english when the Romanian population will drop under 10 million =)) . Now it's around 20 million , but I don't think that will happen unless a fucking disease strikes out .)
Oke , see you soon JOURNAL !

I found these images on my HDD . They're with my old computer ( pentium 2 ) . You will obviously notice the clothes on the computer =)) . It is really cold in that room when it's winter ( the computer is at my grandmother's house) and the computer won't boot :))

Hi everyone , I decided to update my site and make it a portofolio site . OK . The site is quite ugly , and I don;t have only 40 Mb of disk space :( .

Anyway , in this summer I'm gonna make a site and upload it on a freehosting website ( I know some site ... something with "freetzi" it gives you 500 MB !!!! )

Anyway , I'll add more content soon , but please see it and tell me if it's a little nice . I'll add some widgets too .

It's amazing what power has the null texture . I didn't even knew . I'm talking about my campaign in sven coop. I just said ...I'll try and see if it'll really reduce the r_speeds. Not only my r_speeds were reduced by half in some areas , but my compile time is fucking fast !!!! So may this be a lesson for all of you who don't have this behaviour : null every outside face of the map .

And cuz I was talking about my campaign ...... I'll say it again : the map is almost finished , but I'm working on a complex mechanism now . I must say the map is fully interactive and fun . You won't have time to be bored ;) . Even like so , the map can be completed in aprox 15 minutes if you're expert .... or , let's say 40 minutes if you're noob . I can completed it myself in less than 15 minutes but I used the impulse code and the god code .

Should I release the map when it's finished or wait till' the second map ?
