CAPS AND BOLD OHNOES!!!

I know you're saying about the animations, frankly i'm not great at it. but i did learn how to use IK pivot angle targets. that will get both the navenger and the squid looking right.

Also, i have an update on the navengers design, but i haven't gotten to it yet.

Rimrook your the man :)

Need to work on that mouse guy a little more tho, looks a bit fake compared to the others.

I dont really know what the mod will be about coz i havent really posted here that much, but i'd be cook if youd make another of those guys in video (the first one) and made him like a giant drop ship lol.

Here's what happened, no lies.

I was browsing through my 6D resources looking to clean somethings up, but i was feel down because the Navenger, being one of my more impressive models, still isn't fuckin working and i haven't been close to a fix at all yet. So i was searching for tools, and Milkshape keeps popping up. I reasoned that its probably the last remaining functional tool capable of making HL1 stuff to work properly. So i download load it, but seeing its a demo, i started looking for a serial, like i'd ever pay for it anyhow. After acquiring one, I scanned the file for viruses and it turned out clean. So i opened it and my comp was instataneously infected with a trojan and spyware. It installed a fake spyware cleaner app which i knew was fake. I searched for it on the microsoft security database site and found a way to clean it off. This is my laptop, and the method they said to delete it wasn't accurate. Also, the site promoted a free spyware cleaner. So I download that from the security site. As it turned out, it found the spyware as well as a few others that were there. Slowly i could feel my laptop slow down, so I quickly bought the program through its service and tried to clean it off. However, it was incapable of cleaning the crap off. So I did some quick research on this spyware cleaner and found out it was another fake spyware cleaner, no better than the one that was originally infected, not only that, I BOUGHT THE FUCKER! So now they have my credit card info and that service has been reported to make fraudulent charges. So i quickly buy the best proclaimed spyware cleaner to quickly clean up the mess before i lose my laptop. as I'm ready to delete it, it freezes. I turn it off and turn it on, and nothing. Its dead. How could i be so fuckin stupid?

So I'm out one laptop $60+, no internet at home now, no Milkshape, and i still have broken 6D models. So lucky i got a new comp when I did, so I can still develop for it just fine and everything is backed up.

So now that you read that long vlarg, i implore you, if you can help or know anyone who can help, step the fuck up.

No offence, but that was pretty stupid.

BUYING a spyware cleaner in the first place? And the fact that you couldn't even see it was fake? :P

For future reference, never use anything but Spybot S&D or AdAware, both free.
Posted 14 years ago2008-03-20 18:58:21 UTC Post #247832
the first one i bought was recommended here.

part way down the page you see spyhunter.

which performs like this.

as well as many other review sites rating it bad and almost claiming it as bad as a fake one itself.

I know i lost my laptop, but in some irony, less distraction for 6D dev. :\

......wow.

first of all, jump on IRC if you ever need advice with spyware again, you don't need to pay anything for a good spyware removal tool. (for future reference: ad-aware and spybot, both free.)

second, cancel that credit card! i'm sure you already have.

third, your laptop can't be "dead" (not from a virus, anyway). the worst that software viruses can do is corrupt your windows installation. if the data isn't important on the laptop, throw in a windows installation disk and use the serial that should be on the bottom of the laptop. when given the option, do a full format.

fourth, the best software is often free. for security:
zonealarm: firewall
AVG free: anitvirus
Spybot search & destroy: spyware
ad-aware: spyware

Posted 14 years ago2008-03-21 22:59:10 UTC Post #247836
i don't know, i wanted to remove the crap as quickly as possible and it was nearly 4 in the morning.

just so pissed off, shouldn't have said anything. another fuckin stupid move.

what really started this was the desire to fix 6D stuff. if i have any more trouble, i'm just going to drop the project outright and release it as an open end mod like spirit and Flatlife.

EDIT: a good friend of mine repaired it for free. he owed me a favor anyhow. So I have teh netz back.

That sounds horrific! = <

At least you got your laptop working again! (you might order a factory reinstall dvd for your laptop model if one's available...the one for my laptop only cost like 12 bucks, and it sets your system back to when it was new with os and original drivers)

Also can't stress enough the importance of backing up your hard work to another source (as you said you did). I lost 7 months of work once when my laptop was stolen... = <

:(( sorry to hear that rim :(
Adaware and Spybot Search and Destroy haven't failed me yet. I don't even have norton or Macafee and i have zero viruses and only like 1 or 2 minor spyware things a month.

Plus Spybot has that thing where it asks permission to make any changes to your registry. REALLY handy because it gives you all the information you need to make an educated decision.

I'd say, roll back your comp a month or 2 (using system restore, you do have it right??) , get Adaware, Spybot, scan, scan, reboot, scan again. And pray it works, and Have a wonderful easter. :)

And i do believe there's a limited registry cleaner (i think it's called registry mechanic?) to get rid of any left over traces..

system restore takes up unnecessary hard drive space and cpu cycles. it never fixes anything, and slows down installations that attempt to create restore points. one of the first things i do on a new install is disable it through start -> run -> services.msc, along with the error reporting service and windows messenger. besides your anti-spyware programs, the only other one you should have is tuneup utilities, which has a bunch of great applications for cleaning out the useless stuff on your computer and registry.

And where do i get Tuneup Utilities. Or should i not even ask and go google it...

tuneup utilities
Never herd of that... but it sounds good: I will check it out = >

Way back when I first started XPing, system restore saved me a couple times, but I can't remember from what tbh. I must admit tho i haven't used it in a very long time.

Tetsu0/Peng'y: you guys don't run antivirus? I guess the line is kinda blurring between the two, but i use avast religously for antivirus.

EDIT: I have to propose the 6D project to my Advisor in exactly 6 weeks.

oh shit...
Thanks to Cap'n Terror's Caek, the epic ending i planned for the project has been saved almost completely. So no lame half-assed alternate ending shit.

I got a few things done accordlingly, but i sorta had my own Crazy Weke '08.

I'm tired of showing stuff, seems like all i do is poke a zombeh with a stick. So i'll save it for release.

Comparison shots for the updated models.
I know I wasn't going to show stuff, but I like criticism. Keeps things sharp.

New Glizard:

The long overdue remap of the Glizard. Looks way more believable and less noobish than before. Also, I cleaned up about 1,000 triangles from it so its not as heavy as before. its around 2,000 polies like the rest of the models.

New Navenger:

Navenger wasn't looking like the sketch very much, and after making it look like the sketch, I drew a new sketch and morph the face to look like that sketch then remapped the hell out of it, keeping almost nothing from before. Instead of some lame improvised armor set, I gave him a Russian coat with a hood, will likely be a hooded variant of the Navenger for later. Also, took the time to make a sick set of hands so now he's got realistic hands and fingers. As you can see, I'm still painting. But it won't take nearly as long, because I've set it up to be seamless, so no dodging edges and weird marks. Its noticeable in the already painted face.

Hammerhead Exposed:

Introducing the Hammerhead replacement for the Apache. This one has been under contrstuction for a while, never really got a solid design until recently. Its still being unwrapped so no paint yet.

Also in the works is a new and improved Human Grunt for 6D and a Seidon model for later. After that, things should go smooth. I'm working on the models again because I'm just waiting for Daubster. Besides, the end of the main modelling stuff is definitely within reach. Especially with my incredibly loose schedule this semester, and I have a class that demands output on the project, so I'm actually forced to work on it whether or not I'm feeling up to it. Its now considered homework, how cool is that?

Will update again. I also picked up HyperCam, so I might Speed Paint a model and throw it on YouTube.

Its getting hard for me to keep up with this thread so I apologize if I have said anything that has already been posted.

Here is the spirit of half-life 1.5a4 source code http://www.chatbear.com/unity2/839/199,1190219712,11396/1057067?v=flatold

Anyways, what kind of things do you need coded in? I know how to do some really basic things in the code (still learning). But seriously dude, if you need things done and nobody is willing to help, you may as well learn how to code. Most of the coders out there are only coding for themselves and thats understandable because coding is different to mapping. Anybody can get themselves a copy of hammer and make a crappy (or good) map.

BTW.. got a download link for the mod, I'd like to give this one a go.
Posted 14 years ago2008-04-07 02:40:13 UTC Post #248529
Daubster is coding at the moment. So I don't need the latest spirit, and i already had it. In fact, I'm using 6Da3 code right now.

I'm the art guy, I'd say if you'd want some work, talk to Daubster and maybe you can knock out some of the easier things if you think you are up to a challenge or two.

Right now, not much is getting added, I designed a dynamic crosshair but daubs hasn't responded on that yet. He said he was moving, so I hope he's just out of internet in his new place for a moment or two, or perhaps dead...

<.<
.>
anyway, the code is pending. I can assure that whats done thus far is something just short of a Gravity Gun for Goldsource minus physics.

will be soon. I have a class that requires me to have a site. Lucky me that I already have one :D

However, the instructor hated what I've got so far, it was boring, and it is boring. Its getting a makeover and I'm going to host my Maps there as well as some artwork blah.

In due time...

EDIT: also, i'm going to have a completion bar (like a loading bar) that will be actively updated as I complete stuff, the checklist is available as well for more details.

Take some time to get organized, make sure everything you're behind on is done properly.

You DID notice I mentioned that 6D has to be proposed as a capstone project to my academic advisers in 6 (now 5) weeks?

Thats the true point of no return. After that, we have just under 1 year to finish the project. It'd be impossible if I hadn't started early :D

If i don't finish, it'll scar my transcript. I could finish it after graduation but it still show as incompleted on my records. Either way, its a permanant deadline.

EDIT: Damn, for a capstone project, I need to record 6D's history. So, I'll be pretty much downloading this forum and compiling all my notes and sketches. :(

you're not done with all that late-work already are you? You're worse than me.

Glad to have you back. I did pass a few messages you might want to take a look at.

Also, stumbled across this and I'll likely get it in the future. Because there is nothing more annoying than texturing things manually. I've been doing it long enough and I would like to have the same edge everyone else in the industry has.

EDIT: Upon looking at the videos for that, I think I may stump it with clever Map ID-ing and texture map projection channels. But still, right on the model is an awesome convenience.

LAWL i actually looked back through the thread to see how long it takes for someone to ask for media.

However, its hard to ask that right now. Both Daubster and I need to finish our parts and i think we're both a little behind.

However, I'm thinking this weekend, since you are all being very nice, I'll whip up some example maps for TWHL-Only alpha testing over the weekend.

Provided the fact that its alpha, there's no collisions or anyhting, and the code is shaky+stable in areas.

I'll do it unless Daubster stops me and says not to. Its disappointing me disappointing you guys so I dunno.

Posted 14 years ago2008-04-12 05:35:14 UTC Post #248709
I don't think the current state of the code is finished enough for alpha testing. It's still very dirty in most places and overall unpolished.
I'd like to at least finish collisions and some of the smaller movement/stability glitches and exploits revealed through Rimrook's testing before releasing it for alpha testing.

That shouldn't take too long anyway, plus - you'd be provided with a more stable, cleaner view on the main techniques in 6-D.

Posted 14 years ago2008-04-13 16:25:59 UTC Post #248764
Believe it or not, doing some real hardcore mapping for 6D has exposed a few more glitches.

Don't worry Daubster, your code performed perfectly.

Its the fact that SPIRIT was messing everything up. I dodged as many bullets as I possibly could and made a very blunt and clean tutorial (with an awesome voiceover by yours truly) to explain how to play the game. Using the env_model for simple animated stuff like doors, switches, and whatnots, the player's quickness cannot glitch it, including objects quickly toggled.

in short - its idiot proof. but there is cleaning up to do. Need to make it look sexy. :P

If the alpha performs well enough, I'll go ahead and assume it as the demo and release it when its running as smooth as it will get. so far, i got it 30% done in 1 day. quite happy with it too.
