Long Story Short, I (and pretty much everyone else who has Dota2) have a million Dota 2 invites I'm looking to get rid of. Message me on steam if you're interested. (If you don't have me added on steam already, my steam name is WildKarrde. at )

And by a million invites, I mean 6. First come first serve.

and no, I'm serious. message me on steam. who knows when I'll log in here again.

I kinda think they should wait until Xen was done and release it as the whole thing, but its their mod, they can do what they want, and you're not going to see me complain about the work they've done and how they decide to give it to us.

It just kinda seems like they're catering to forum babies.

In any case, I've already downloaded the soundtrack, listened to it, and sent some money Joel's way for his incredible work. :D Also I figured I'd share that "We've Got Hostiles" is my favorite track.

"Acquire" FRAPS if you're broke, or if you have the money, just buy it.

I had a less than legal version for a while but once I found myself in the possession of income, there was no reason to not buy it.

Not to sound like a FRAPS fanboy but the alternatives out there are mediocre at best.

Also it cost me more than FRAPS for a dinner for two at a relatively cheap restaurant. But I guess that's America for you.

There's a fairly decent third party solution to recording LoL game replays. Granted its third party, but its pretty solid until replays become a feature in the game client.

Afaik, in LoL the only champion that can deny is Gangplank, by using one of his abilities.
Think that was his really realllllly old skillset.

Anyway, ATDestroy on NA server.

I've played this game, a LOT. I probably won't play nearly as much now that I've got a job.

It's also fairly terribly optimized in places. Some interior dungeons suffer unexplainable framerate drops even on my super rig. Urby noticed them as well and his pc was almost £3,000 iirc.
Really? I love the dungeons because they're the only place I get upwards of 40 FPS.

Outdoors is where I start crawling at 8 FPS.

Couldn't even be a shit PC, because my PC is shit and Skyrim is still beautiful. A beautiful image that changes 8 times per second, but beautiful nonetheless.

Also complaining about the dragon when you have about 10 invincible guards to tank it for you? If he knew about the dragon + dragon priest (or lich, if you prefer) fight, he'd go nuts.

I'll be honest, I really didn't think it'd ever run on my crappy computer, but it did. I'm now obligated to actually buy it.

Suppose I'll wait for the GotY edition.

Also, I had some weird graphics glitches where fire particles wouldn't show up (dragons looked like they were microwaving you with heat waves) and the world map was extremely blurry. Was all fixed by the enbseries dll, in case anyone else has had the issue

Nightwatch/Submerged. To answer Jeff/Urby.

And yeah Stu, fair criticism for sure on all points, but I have no idea how to do the outdoor area correctly, I've redone the lighting 3 times and I cant seem to find something that works well. I'm TRYING to go for a morning time frame.

Any suggestions?

some may be pictures I posted before, I cant remember, but whatever, this is where I am now.

Known criticism, the hallway in the first pic is too dark, and there's that empty space in picture 2. I'm getting frustrated trying to make the black mesa trucks out of brushes, and the prefab I downloaded (lol.) gives me compile errors, so Ill figure out something eventually.

I only use the 1 unit grid in rare cases where VM acts weird in 2 or 4 unit.

You know what im talking about right? the side you're moving gets skewed to the side and snaps to the grid at that point, one unit over from where you want it to go.

Please tell me im not the only one with this problem.

Anyway, I like Ninja's entry, makes me think of Elder Scrolls Oblivion.

Huntey's entry is awesome, the creativity to come up with that idea is way more than I could muster. And on top of that, it looks great. Whats up with the null texturing though?

Why the hell not? This isn't a professional portfolio here, working on a competition map could be a good way to learn a lot about mapping.

in Now Hiring: Map Vault Moderators Post #288899
I would be interested in both positions, but one or the other. I like to review maps and mods, and I do have all the valve games, so I would be capable of reviewing the whole spectrum of maps/mods.

The only thing is, I may have difficulty in a MOTM position just because I can't promise I'd be able to stick to a regular schedule of reviewing. Some months are really busy for me life-wise. Some are not. I do have a good microphone, fraps, and good video editing software however.

As far as an example of a review goes, I'm almost embarrassed by this because this review was written years ago, I think I was 13. Anyway, My Timefall review:
eh, i played this mod 4 times, and, to be honest, i did not like it very well. From the start, i did not understand the story, and i never got any hint of the story in the rest of the game. If i may compare this mod to "lifes end" on this site, i would point out how you really knew your character in "lifes end", from getting fired by the boss, to your character thinking out loud, it really gave you a sense of who you were playing as, and giving you a reason to progress, and protect your character. I did not get the same feeling in timefall, i literally forgot the characters name by the end.

The combat was not all that good, the fights with the aliens were the same thing every time, and the army fights were not implemented in a strategic combat way.

The sniper rifle, while a good idea, was poorly implemented. I noticed that, upon firing the rifle, it took a 2 second delay to hit medium to far away targets, and i realized that this, was because it was just a remodel of the crossbow! - 1 star for that, that really dissapointed me.

The architecture, was repetitive, and boring, and some things just didnt make sense. The texturing was dull, but that wasnt very bad.

The puzzles, gah, the puzzles really annoyed me. They were the same thing over and over, look around for a paper thin ledge, and follow it, open a door, backtrack, activate something, progress. :/

And really, i expected this NOT to be in a mod as highly reviewed as this, the barney said "open fire gordon", now i may have forgotten the characters name, but i know for a fact that it was not gordon. :/ -1 star

This also disapointed me, getting the crowbar, and the shotgun, BEFORE the HEV. Yet you could see the HEV sleeves on your player, thats just not right. - 1/2 star

The only things i really liked, was the time travel sequence, and the clever parts where you saw gordon.

This mod was much less than i expected it to be, i was really disapointed. 2.5 stars, rounds to 3.
Two things I dislike about this review, 1) My overall tone was really negative. and 2) I compared it to another mod. Which I feel isn't a good thing to do.

At any rate. there you go.
