Photoshop can always export 8bit bmp.

Image > mode > indexed color
Then save it as a .bmp and you’re set.

I’ve confirmed that Krita cannot do 8bit color since it’s engine works strictivly in channels.

I do all my Goldsource texture work in Photoshop. It absolutely can export 8bit bmps, as Rimmeh said. :P

Just ring me for final playtest @ Mr Gnang :) I will ofc help to find bugs but as I know your style, you are doing superb work.

Don't worry - I will have a quick round of playtests once I have put together all maps. I've been working on this periodically for so long I just want to put an end to it haha!

That's exactly what I felt when I was finishing de_kobbl in August 2017. Ah, it was such a messy time.

I would stay up late and compile 4 versions of the same map in a row. The heat generated by the laptop was unbearable and I couldn't sleep during the night.
And when I finally finished it, it was worth all the time I invested into it. :)

My development is working... I am sorry for offline / employment ( I am very busy )

MonoGame can convert Half-Life into C# and it looks realistic like own game has many workable parameters like -windowed or -sw than it will run as windowed mode or changes size -w and -h ( I mean conversion like I re write easy content of Half-Life's engine )

OpenTK GameWindow has bug with reconfigure to fullscreen if I let "-windowed" than it looks like wrong size of same monitor's resolution. That is why GameWindow of OpenTK can't resize in fullscreen if I pass -w 800 -h 600.

and more...

I have to try initial OpenGL on Gtk Sharp with OpenGL 4.5> Like Shader and Program - I am happy because I have to chance viewport of Gtk Sharp because I find holy shits from nuget server with bad bugged Gtk Sharp 3.x cause they use old supported viewport with OpenGL 3.3.

I want show you a test GLWidget works under Windows 10 fine.

It is using Gl.Begin() and Gl.End() But I am using Gl.Shader and Gl.Program

It is for PowerHammer ( Sorry I showed my project because it is backup for testing. But original PowerHammer doesn't show in video. )

I feel like with a couple of layered transparent textures (for easy mode), you could make a pretty good-looking Borg cube.

I decided to start mapping for Quake II. It's going well enough, even though I'll have so much trouble trying to find some of the documentation I need.
User posted image
A Quake II GUI Compiler would be neat, except websites are down and digging every snapshot at Web Archive is just going to be time-consuming. :/

I did, at least, find ArghRad, so I'm going to compare it to the QRAD3 which comes with J.A.C.K. ^o^

Wasn't happy with how the PVS-5 turned out, so spent the day touching it up and reworking some things.

You NEED to make a full infowars map! But I get the impression you have made that decision already :)

I'm having too much fun making it, so I hope I'll actually make the entire thing. Played Sven with a bunch of uni mates a couple days back and remembered how fun it was, and the sense of humor maps like toonrun had. Feel like the game is overdue for something more modern.

I'm starting to get worried that I'm going a bit overboard on faces / brushes. Just a couple quick questions:

1 ) Do faces that are textured in BEVEL contribute to the overall amount of faces in game?
2 ) If so, does this negatively affect performance?
3 ) Is there any performance or resource benefit to making func_details passable, and then manually creating a much simpler clip hull?

Bit more progress. Half the time working on this is being spent making textures, rather than mapping itself. So far the plan seems to be making each "big" room / section in their own maps, and then stitching them into a big one, once I know each small area is perfected. Wish JACK / sledge supported instances, cause this'd be a perfect use for it.

That looks fantastic!

From my experience, I coat every surface not view-able or accessible by the player in the NULL texture and it helps performance.

For all my levels, I create the basic room box or bounding area as brushes, and fill every single element as a func_detail. I am talking hundreds of them. I am getting away with a lot of brushes - for example:

http://www.moddb.com/mods/half-life-echoes/images/signal-fading

Seems to run fine even on my older laptop!

I know that. I've seen the top-down view of the school in Google Earth, and most things are off.
I'll adjust everything later when I complete all the needed brushwork.
But first, I think I'll need more reference photos. -_-

Posted 6 months ago2017-11-25 14:12:11 UTC Post #338206
Wouldn't it be much better to adjust the brushwork now rather than after you've completed half the map? If anything, for making sure everything is still on grid?
Instant Mix Instant MixTitle commitment issues
Posted 6 months ago2017-11-25 15:56:54 UTC Post #338208
Considering what you're thinking, yes. But the needed brushwork is just a fifth of the map, not half a map!

I'm talking about what I call "necessary brushwork", the core geometry of the map, excluding the details and everything. It's low-poly enough and such that adjustments will be very easy to make!

Once I'm 100% sure that the scale is right with the core geometry, I can continue adding detail geometry.

Oh, and besides, school maps don't have to be 1:1 replicas of the map. I can always miss a dozen units or so, at least with the bigger brushes.

Oh, please no, don't waste your good brushwork on dust textures. Your map probably deserves so much better.

Once I'm done with the base map, I'll port it to other games, including CS 1.6, Sven Co-op and maybe Cry of Fear as you mentioned. :D

Started working on another "tag" map for CS. This one is also going to have a "pseudo-siege" element where all entrances into the lab have a 1 way push and all Ts spawn inside the lab. The design is inspired by and based on a map known as "Graveyard Siege" for a standalone Quake 2 mod called Digital Paint: Paintball 2.

Having played Digital Paint: Paintball 2 as a kid, I'm quite surprised that I've never seen or heard of Graveyard Siege before. :P

@Admer

I fired up Paintball 2 just to grab some screenies. It actually just shows up as "grave" on the map list but the full title is "The Graveyard Siege" by a mapper named Reed. It's a custom map and doesn't come with the game, iirc. I don't know how to get rid of the hud elements and didn't bother trying to figure it out since these screens were just to give you a basic idea of what the map is.

Obviously, it's waaaay too open for CS. It works fine for paintball due to the limited range and fast Quake II style movement (movement I've never quite been able to get down, I suck at strafe jumping). My map instead involves a laboratory with much more stuff inside, less entrances into the building, and a slightly safer approach towards the building. You can't really mimic the siege mode in CS but my "tag" hostage system should be good for this map.

"Quake II style movement (movement I've never quite been able to get down, I suck at strafe jumping)"
I really love Quake II-style movement. I'm thinking I should fire up Paintball 2 as well. Childhood memories have to be re-experienced, right? :3 (even though I never got to play with players or bots)

I was very surprised by the compile times on this one. On the other hand, Hammer crashed 4 times. I've also played around with the Ray-casted Preview window. It's pretty useful for some things, or at least for me. Many have said that it's too dark and couldn't get it to work.

It's a CS map. Initially I made it to test the func_vehicle entity, but I kept detailing it more and more to the point it barely resembled a test map.
