I need volunteers for texture editing. Keep in mind, this is for free, I can't pay you any money.

Send me a PM if you want to contribute to the overhaul project.

I would share this DNF's steam page but don't know if Gearbox is a lookin'.

I'm not so sure about this, I mean getting a Duke game without It's iconic Grabbag theme would feel off, and as for level music, it would certainly feel dull without it, Music adds to the immersion of the game, there's no reason not to have it.

Grabbag doesn't play while you're playing, and personally, I feel more immersed if I can hear the distant ambient sounds coming from all directions, which give me the illusion of being in a real place and which music would drown out. If, instead, a game goes completely silent whenever there's no action, it just means its sound direction was sloppy and music was just used to mask the flaw.

If your brain tells you one thing and your heart tells you another, get rid of those silly doubts and listen to your brain.

I liked that about Duke 64. But I'm biased, it was the first Duke I played.

I thought about this for a while. I felt the music in Duke3D worked because you're always trying to figure out beat the level. The uninterrupted music brought a bit of atmosphere and concentration for the player. Dark Side for example; very spoopy. Then comes a game like Half-life, very linear you never really have to look hard to find out where you're supposed to go. The game uses a lot of ambient noises like sirens, water noises, bulleyes splashes, feetsteps, and so on. I guess this what you meant by 'immersed,' because it makes you feel like you're actually in there. But very lackluster when you're stuck in a room fighting the boss and there's no music to help you get motivated.

The way DNF did it, the silence stood for a sigh of relief, and music kicks in when the game wants you to 'feel' a certain mood; whether adrenaline or spoopy. I remember Resident Evil 5 did a lot of this, when the music stopped, you've killed everything you need to.

I'm actually not really interested in level based music on a loop. I like how DNF has music on specific occassions/events. The issue i'd say is WHAT music is used. about 75% of DNF's music is just terrible. As an example, Action 05 might be one of the worst action themes of all time, yet it gets used like 5 times in the game. (it's the theme that plays during the first battlelord fight)

What I'd say I need suggestions for sounds specifically are for the machinegun, at laser and captain laser.

I digged the unspoken DNF credits song and the un-used DNF 2003 sample.

It also made the game feel predictable as whenever music came on, I knew there would be an ambush ahead.

I have no doubt you can do much better with that style. No ill-will intended.

Not sure what you mean, but if there's an ambush you deal with it old-style.

Not sure if the poster meant "deal with ambush" or "deal with he fact I'm using scripted music." Only thing that matters to me here is Duke and his fans.

Haven't been around posting updates as of late due to another important modding project.
Once I'm done with that, I'll be back working on DNFO.

Oh, my bad. I didn't know suggesting people to deal with the alien ambush is cunt behavior.

I apologize.

It's the way you worded it. Dismissive and demeaning for no reason. Unless your name is "Jimmy" in real life, you're not allowed to do that.

LMAO
But yeah, the main reason that even I downvoted that post is not because it was cunty. I couldn't even figure out if it was cunty. It's a bizarre response, I wasn't sure what he meant by it. It was just really poor communication. I have no problem with people being cunty, just like be clear and make sense.
