MapCore's Quake 3 15th Anniversary Contest Discussion

Recommended Posts

Say, are we able to release test versions of our maps? It might be useful to do so for polishing our maps.

 

Yes, nearing the last couple of weeks I'll rent a server so you all can playtest your maps.

Awesome, I look forward to playing some of that!

can i use this textures http://css.gamebanana.com/textures/3214? i will convert and m.b. redraw some textures... original autor creators Silkroad

 

I don't have an account there so I don't know if they were released for general use. You would have to ask the original author for permission. If he's cool with that then there's no problem in using these. Also make sure you are allowed to modify them and what kind of credit is required.

If I want to have a soft start by doing a map before I start working on my contest entry, where do I post that? Can I just post it in the same thread as my entry or should I put that somewhere else?

 

I think it would be easier (for me) to keep everything in a single thread but I don't want to accidentally break the one entry per contestant rule!

Yeah, one thread is fine.

[solved I think...]

Hi! 

I was wondering if anybody has some experience with recording demos w/ Quake 3?

I recorded some while playtesting but it's really laggy on playback. I tried to play the demo in Wolfcam and there it's smooth but on the other hand some effects are missing and somethings looks diffrent, ugly lightning gun shaft etc. After some research I got the blood and gibs to show up though.

 

For the moment it's okey and I'll go with the wolfcam look, but I'm still wondering if someone knows some way to get smooth playback in Q3?

 

Edit: Lol seconds after I post I see the command g_synchronousClients 1, and it seems like it records demos smoothly w/ it.

You can also use something Like Fraps. Easier to edit later.

I use fraps to record from the demo later. I get some weird lag while playing with fraps running but that doesn't effect the demo though.
