  1. I promise you, I use as soon as I can these features but the fights on roofs are not interesting, there is no place where we can have wall run fights. WALL RUN FIGHTSSSSS!!! For real! Not only a guy wallrunning and shooting on grunts, but guys shooting at each others between close walls. Just that. I want to try that kind of things. May be it would be shit but it may be a really cool choke point !
  2. Honestly, I don't find this beta really crazy. Ok, the gameplay is dynamic etc etc but I hoped that the maps would propose more things using wall run and jump. Here, you just have to double jump to pass through windows or get on walls but... I don't, I hoped so much more cool things in level design that I'm really disappointed.
  3. Dafuk a racoon and Dave Bautista in the same place. It's too much to me...
  4. Last sunday, I've watched Filth from Jon S. Baird and I have to say that this movie is fuc**** awesome. A great James McAvoy ! Here is the trailer:
  5. It reminds me a game called "Hogs of War" on Playstation.
  6. I'm working on a L4D2 scavenge map. As you can see, it's the Walking Dead West Central Prison (the TV serial version). I've finished to build the map and the gamemode. I'm now working on the environnement in the prison enclosure. Tell me what you think.
  7. Yeah I think that's the funniest part, this game will probably sell like hell. It's almost like some ingenious satire of the CoD generation and their willingness to buy anything as long as it has the right IP. I said "play" not "pay"
  8. You all know that everyone will play this game
  9. Three games and three movies; it's too difficult... Games : 1 : Rayman Legends -- This game is just Crazy 2 : Call Of Juarez Gunslinger -- Best Arcade FPS of the year, excellent storytelling and good game mecanics 3 : Papo y yo -- well, only game that made me cry this year + good puzzle game 4 : Guacamelee -- Buenas mecánicas de juego y la narración desplazado 5: Dota 2 Movies 1 : Gravity 2 : Don Jon 3 : Elysium 4 : The wolf of Wall Street 5 : The Hobbit 2
  10. I've got this, but I don't know what to modify in all of to do what I want. I don't even know if it's posssible or not.

    I'm always amazed while looking what people do in NS2. Good job
  12. Hi guys, First of all, Happy New Year everybody ! Make good games and have fun. Now, back to the business. I've followed the tutorial from World of level design to make a scavenge mode in Left 4 Dead 2. There is the link : http://www.worldofleveldesign.com/categories/left4dead2_mapping/l4d2-how-to-create-scavenge-gamemode-part1.php But the thing is, this is a pur scavenge mode, human versus human. What I want to do is keeping the gascans and the generator from the scavenger mode to use them as they're in several campaign levels as the commercial center with the racing car. Survivors are players and zombies stay A.I zombies. But I don't know how to do and I don't really want to break something in this project. I'm gonna copy the project and try things but if someone knows what to do and how to do, it would be nice to share your knowledge.... and it would be a big time saving 'cause I'm very late in my agenda.
  13. I've found the problem from the "Too many faces with the same material in scene" error. I have had created prison doors and "window fences" with bsp brushes because there is no beautiful prison door in the props. And I duplicated them for each door and window. So there was actually a lot of face with the same texture. Silly me. Problem solved, even if I have to find prison doors somewhere. Thanks guys, now my map is fully optimize Now I still have to do the scavenge mission. I don't how to use a car rather than the scavenge_generator.

  15. Hello everybody, I'm working on a L4D2 map and I have some problems with compiling. First of all, When I compile the map to test it, I have this error : "Too many faces with the same material in scene". Half of the bsp brushes desappear when I walk trought the map, as you can see on the pictures. I've changed a lot of the materials that were on the BSP brushes, I've applied nodraw texture to see if it was an optimization problem but the problem is still there. I don't find any solution on others forums even on the valve's forums, so I'm here to ask if anybody had already encounter this problem and if someone have a solution. The second is that I've got some props that don't appear when I compile the map. I don't know why. And finally, I want to make the same mission principle as the end of the Dead Commercial Center campaign of L4D2 when you have to put some fuel into the racing car. So, I want to do that, but in this Walking Dead prison but I don't understand everything : I've watched some tutorials about "how to make a scavenger map" but I don't succeed in adjusting it to what I want. But that is less important for the moment than the first problem. So, if somebody have solutions to my problems it would great. I'm a bit stuck with that, seeing that I want to finish this map before Christmas, so it could be my present to the community and to the walkind dead fans.
  16. --Em--, I prefer to focus on a type of game with the same controls and camera. Sentura, don't worry about that, I've already with him about my subject and he totally agree. Daze, I've thought about that, but my supervisor told me to focus on one or on the other but make a choice. The thing is, we'll have to present our research in only 15 minutes in front of a jury so it has to be clear and easily understandable. I'm confident in the relevance of my subject and I'm sure I can make something really interesting. And Thanks you Sjonsson, this article is really interesting.
  17. Hello everybody, I'm studying game design and level design at Supinfogame France (it's the first game design french school created 12 years ago). I'm in third year and I have to write a sort of thesis to validate this school year. I've decided to talk about the "difficulties" of working on level design for cooperative campaign in Third Person Shooters. "Cooperative campaign for TPS : the challenge of the level designers". Why ? Because I really love Third person shooters and I think it could be really interesting to talk about it, rather than making an umpteeth analysis of FPS's level design flow. And coop because it includes more conditions to design the levels. And yes, I'm a big fan of Gears of War. Love you Cliff <3 Anyway, this is how I'm gonna plan my analysis : Introduction 1. Level design Introduction Game Design : Definition Level Design : Definition 2. Third Person Shooter Gameplay mecanics Recurrent Level design elements 3. Designing a simple player level Intention Stakes Player's exeperience 4. Designing a cooperative level 4.1 Two players cooperation 4.2 Four players cooperation 5. Interactions between the players 6. Vers la perfection Conclusion I already have several foods for thought like the need to design maps that suit both one player than two or four players, or create separate paths to offer differents interactions between the players as Gears Of War does. The thing is, I don't have the experience of making an AAA coop TPS, so I try to get some feedbacks from persons who have worked on such projects. So, if some of you guys have worked on third person shooters with coop, It would be great to share you experience as level designer or even as game designer and talk about the problems you faced up and the solutions you found during the conception process and the production of your game. Sure, even if you don't explain all the details, it would be very helpful and interesting. Really, it would be awesome.
