chapter one progress

just to keep everyone updated (everyone being those few who come through here :t3lol: ).

the first map of BOP is very nearly finished. all that remains is tweaking a few scripts and choreo scenes, and ironing out some optimization.

the second map requires more scripting work, but the geometry is also very nearly done, if not complete.

those two maps make up chapter one. all together, I would estimate that chapter one is roughly 80% complete. keep in mind though, that these still need to be beta tested, and as such, might undergo further changes. we'll hopefully start our beta testing soon.

Re: chapter one progress

Yipee! :D I can't wait to actually get a chance to get up close and personal with BOP!

[edit:] This should be way cool...I can't wait to find out if everything else is as good as the screenshots. A picture can only say so much!

Re: chapter one progress

Another progress nag/question: How complete is the stuff that will be included in the demo? Are we anywhere close to beta testing that stuff prior to its release? Either way, if you could give me some idea of how, even if you can't say or don't know when, it's all going to go down. Kinda like a timeline, but without the times...if that makes any sense at all.

Re: chapter one progress

sure...

where we are at:
-geometry for everything in the demo is done, unless the demo winds up including the church and parking garage level, which it probably won't.

-choreography and scripting are more than half way.

-there are some code features that will be in the game eventually that may not make it into the demo. this means that the demo won't be entirely representative of the final release, but to take time out and implement them would push us past the end of the year, not to mention they would need to be fixed whenever the new source code is finally released.

-there are some assets that will probably not be in a finalized state when the demo is done. for example, the player has no powered suit, so rather than a "chshhhh" noise when you sprint we were going to use heavy breath sounds. we haven't recorded those yet, (that's just one example) and we may not find time to do so before we finish the demo.

where we are going:
-czarrr has been working on choreography, and i've been working on scripting, and we will continue this until we have a working (not perfect) example of all of this that can be beta tested.

-beta testing will be happening while we continue to fine tune the scripting, and this will likely be where we 'fix' things... (it's only 3 maps that we've already tested plenty in-house so 'fixes' should be minimal)

-we'll all have some eggnog, sausages, cheeses & crackers, and possibly wine, after which we'll take a nap. i mean by this that this bulleted point is currently slated for somewhere between christmas & new years. i know we only have a couple weeks, but we're hoping to beta test in 2007.

-when we've attained all the beta test feedback we feel we can handle, and implemented those parts that we feel we must, we'll prepare the demo materials, and probably send them out to 2 or 3 people for a final test (just to be sure things work in a technical respect) and when it does we'll throw it up on the site for download.

Re: chapter one progress

That was perfect...exactly what I was looking for. Keep up the good work!

[EDIT: 12-18] You have been peeking in at my family's house on Christmas haven't you...how else would you know that we do eggnog, cheese, crackers, and of course the summer sausage instead of an actual dinner...since I was little, even!

Re: chapter one progress

@theblahman, i'm not sure why, but i read your post a few times without understanding what you were saying. unfortunately there isn't really anything i can assign at the moment... stay tuned once the beta demo is out... is that sad? beta demo...

at any rate, do you want in on the beta? (if i didn't invite you already)
