Oh, they talk allright. The problem is we don't understand their language :B

Heh, yeah it's been a nasty hot summer. My four dogs at my folks' house ALL got fleas for the first time in TEN YEARS. I think it's because of our super mild winter failing to kill them when it had the chance. My cat is an indoor-only, though, and his problems have just been food-related. I've got him sorted now I think!

Waf, what have you done?

It's taken fronjohn near a year and a half to play thru EXU2 BSI (as it was in April 2011). I happened to come across a vid on youtube and thought... Let's take a look. What is this about? And got hooked. He was playing on 'Unreal' - what a ride!

Yes, it is truly insane - and it is glorious! It is WAY difficult - and that was only part of the mod??

Congrats! Good use of everything (esp. music for energy & atmosphere)... this was a truly exceptional mod - some very intense stuff, lots of outright insane stuff... But will I play it? Do I have´╗┐ the time? (half way through an MSc) Could I cope with Darkness / Blackness??? (I hate that stuff) One day......... :)

And that you for all this. Your energy + enthusiasm created a batshit insane experience!

A sample fronjohn vid... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I1iZioek ... ure=relmfu


No fleas here... had all that back in '06. Your vacuum cleaner is your friend. Adults are 5% of lifecycle; the other times they is eggs or small larvae which need to be vacuumed up. Go around edges / cracks / folds and stitching. Chemical treat everything. Repeat next year. All clothes to be deep frozen for 48 hours (that kills eggs / larvae). Isolate the clean stuff in bin bags so they stay clean; treat animals / humans with drops (they work on people too but make impotent for a while). Perhaps flees should be in EXU2 BSI?? Weak, 1/2 hits of larvae but spawn insanely...

I should ask that fronjohn guy to play some G59 when the new EXU2 version is out. Could be potentially helpful.

Haha, thanks brodders. I've seen fronjohn's videos and am all caught up - he's nearly done with Demo 4 last I checked! I was pretty amazed at how he handled Map 15 with so little ammo. Pretty damn clever, I gotta say. His videos opened my eyes many times to a lot of stuff I really need to fix in the gameplay department.

And yeah, it's really hard on Unreal, but that's maximum. On Medium and especially Easy, it's forgiving enough that pretty much anyone could play it :)

I've been looking at his vids for two years now. Excuse me now, while I catch up. I forgot to check his channel this summer.

Don't know if I've said so already but I sure can't wait for this. Wouldn't mind pwning a bunch of those brussalids ya got there. This is pretty much the only thing I'm really looking forward to this week...

Haha, keep waiting a couple more weeks ;) Still got a lot to do with Map 8 and all sorts of other release-prep stuff. I'm also working out plans for upgrades to some of the earlier maps, but won't start that stuff until Open Beta launches.

Speaking of map "upgrades" are there new graphic-side special effect actors?

No, in almost two years I didn't add any visual effects at all. Not one.

Here's what's been slowing me down (in addition to general life stuff, Half Life, and tendonitis, pretty much in that order):

The broader implications of this antimatter reactor will be quite fun to see play out :)

The Frostclaw facelift is coming along well and is close to done, but there's still a lot left to do (like redoing the missile launchers, and... all of the gameplay).

For some reason I was expecting the anti-matter reactor room to be all white-y, but it looks cool.
I love the RBY color combo for those pipes in Shot 2 :)
