I tried out D3D10, but while it did have an option to uncap the draw distance, its customization options were very limited for my liking.

I don't wanna sound like a whiner for not being able to have things work on my end, but Im too familiar with D3D9. Wether you patch it or not is up to you. But overall, I too cannot fathom how marvelous this campaign was.

On another note... does G59 mean anything? The name that is. Second of all, I was thinking of making a small Machinima of the Hell Survivor and some of the Demon races doing a retrospective of the whole thing. Just for laughs and kinda like a talk show. Whats the name of the Texture you used for Morax? I need it for reference in my short. Of course, I tend to be lazy, so don't get your hopes up. I'll probably work on it periodically.

G59 is read in Japanese as Jigoku (G=JI, 5=GO, 9=KU) which means Hell.
Morax in each version uses XFX.testmore and Jigoku.galgalimflare3 respectively as skins. Just check the the pawns' display settings in the editor.


@Sat hope you can try it out soon.
Also hoping the new ver ends up on coop asap, though I hope most ppl have the newest rendering devices in use for the last map (which isn't very coop-friendly to begin with anyway)

Thanks for the Info! Seems as if the idea might be a bust though since im using RTMS and can only apply the skin as a solid texture. And unfortunatley UnrealED is out of the question too.
Don't worry though, I'll eventually find some sort of way around it...

Congratulations on the final release! I, too, will be looking forward to playing the new stuff, the screenshots so far looked delicious.

Got it updated on my EXU server now. Only about 1/2 way thru the second map, but so
far things seem to be working well.

Still have mutators adding a few extra things, but throttled that back a bit and temporarily
removed LargeMarge and a few other overpowered weapons so we can try things out
for a while the way you intended it to be. (Mostly........ :shake: :rolleyes: )

Will report back after I get thru it all, which may take a while...... \o/ 8)

Just my honest opinion, but I thought Neural Grid would have been better for the final fight.

It originally was lol
Then I found BTS to be extremely impactful and went with that


Anyone else has played throughout the campaign yet

Well I have. Of course I had to go with the Power Fantasy options and get myself some regenerating ammo and health.

But even though, I've played it all and still adore the ending, even If its a little confusing.
As Much as I hate to say it, the final boss was a bit.... Tame. I sorta expected something along the lines of superspeed, bouncing/homing projectiles and teleportation. Sure, he had other creatures to help him out, but its still rather surprising to me that he wasn't 10 times more aggressive.
But Im not gonna let one small upset ruin the entire experience for me. G59 as a whole is a Journey that I definatley see myself embarking on time and time again. Not only is it the perfect appetizer for the next EXU2 version, but It is so remarkably detailed and just shows that even in its first iteration, The Unreal Engine was and still is an incredible gaming engine. The soundtrack was legendary as well. I just... I honestly don't know how else to describe it. You'll definatley be respected as a key contributor to the Unreal community in the coming years.

Yeha I'm not happy much either about the last fight. The buildup to it and when you enter his area has definitely the impact but at the end it's just tonatiuh v2.0. If I was able to code new attack stuff for the pawn I would have made it a 1v1 battle but the pawn code is one of the most annoying of the game to deal with (I know though that Waff is working on making the Skaarj pawn better in the next EXU version).

In one of the posts in this thread I promised a "commentary" of the G59 maps. It was supposed to be released alongside the full campaign but I only got around to it now. It will be released in a few days :)

So how will the commentary work? Will it be like TF2's commentary where you trigger nodes to hear speeches?

It's just a text commentary.

Still can't play due to my IRL situation, so this will make for some good reading in the meantime :tup: of course I know to avoid spoilers ;)

That was a great read, and it just goes to show the purest of dedication that went into this fateful attempt at FPS Nirvana. Yep. I said it.

Anyway, due to the creation of a Skaarj Warrior playermodel, I was thinking of making a Loque-tier bot for Deathmatch based on Morax. But what would be a more appropriate name for him in this weaker, tournament-worthy form? My best guess was Morax-Mortus.
