[RELEASE] Blink of an Eye

User is offline   underTaker

Hi all!

That's been a long time since I done anything in Duke! I started this map few years ago, and because of complete lack of time due to my job and my own project I couldn't get myself to work on it.

But hey! I finally did it! It's continuation to my previous map - Border Town.

As usual - theme of the map is set in the city. This time it's set at evening/night, so you'll probably need to use nightvision goggles - they're scattered around the level.

It's supposed to be big, long, hard and dark. In order to find your way - make use of security view screens (there's plenty of them), conserve your ammo, use night vision (you'll need it).
There are (as I like to believe) some unusual puzzles, so in some places you'll probably wonder a little on what to do, but once again - view screens should clarify everything.

The map is fine for singleplayer, coop and dukematch (though - didn't test the last two).

If there are any problems with the map - I'd appreciate if you'd let me know - I testes it billion times, but I usually tend to leave a little oopsie here and there.

Anyways - have fun!

Porn has taught me that doesn't mean shit though, if the whole experience is over after a Blink of an Eye.

Stoked to see a new release from you, will try and find the time to play later, then come back for comments and less obvious jokes.

It works fine for me using r7750, there might be something screwy in your game folder, Ninety-six.

Looks like the source of the conflict was the CON fixes that I always play with.

Darn.

*Plot twist* - that's why it's named like that :D

But on a serious note -

. I got no idea how to debug CONs and stuff so I can't be much of a help here.

Wow, that was a long wait. I've always liked your stuff, and Brainwash is among my all-time favourites. Looking forward to playing this. (Sorry MRCK, I still haven't checked out Poison Heart.)

GAME.CON by Darkus, I assume. Issue confirmed.

It shouldn't be your task to deal with that.

It's not your fault, man.

Correct.

I'll make do. I just really liked that kill counter fix. (That and fixing the Respawn thing).

Huh, I also got fucked over by custom CONs, the difference in that I use DT's Essential Duke to play custom maps.

Oh, yeah, and the map itself is really nice. Kudos for setting such a gloomy and depressing atmosphere (I played with FLOGHORN.mid to add to that). And the series is finally concluded (or is it?) after what seems so many years.

Thank you for nice words! The series is concluded, yeah, but I planned on starting another one, I was even thinking about some stuff in Caribbean mod maybe - I've always been tempted by it :D

That's always appreciated. In this case, I'm looking forward to what else you might offer regarding Duke maps! :D

Thanks for the list. I can't believe I forgot to add Desert complex to my site. As soon as I have some available time to play this map and Desert Complex i'll upload them. I enjoy your work.

Question: If this is a continuation of "Border Town", would it be legitimate to add it to the "Savior of Alien Era" pack in the addon compilation as a new last part of the episode? (I guess previous posts already confirmed it, just want to be sure.)
And boy, this last map in the series is really HUGE. I am already playing like 90min and I am still not done with it.

Hmm, well i've played this map for hours. Yet to finish it. I'm encountering a lot of problems. I somehow skipped an early on Blue keycard which I ended up going back for later on in the map. I cheated in a swampy tunnel area not realizing it at the time, where I bounced on top of a New Beast to get me further into the map then you probably should be and now i've done everything and i've lost the objective.

There are a ton of visual glitches some areas where the floor doesn't have any tile but a paralax ceiling, tons of sprite glitches and lots of clipping issues. The map layout is very interconnected and overly complex. Not sure im able to complete this map. =S

Okay some of the visual glitches have been addressed by playing in Polymost. Originally started in Polymer and that doesn't work well.

Okay, I've finally finished the map. This was a pretty tough and I think what threw me for a loop was the changing teleporter. Took me a while to figure that I could teleport myself to different areas duh! My biggest complaint was that it was so big and complicated I found myself getting lost often and there wasn't a clear objective. After playing it and looking back it all makes more sense now. Definitely not for the faint of heart. There were some areas that could benefit from being touched up such as: door scaling, texture alignments, blockable walls but it's not easy to do when the map is as complicated and big as this one. This felt like an entire episode in one level.

There was one glass window by the Innocent sign outside that is not breakable should it be? There were a few other minor hiccups but no show stoppers other than the players imagination. There was also a S.E glitch in the water by the airlock switch. Duke seems to float above water rather interesting and never seen that before. It's right on the Teleport sector for when you land in that area from above.

I loved the creativity of the secrets and the placement of items and respawns which assisted me greatly but it truly was a maze of switch flipping. Took me forever to figure out how to free the beast too. Found 8 of the 12 secrets spent about 4 maybe 5 hours of gameplay as I needed breaks to check up on the little rug rat. Killed just about 1000 baddies! That has to be a record for me in a single map. I can't imaging how long it must have taken to make this map. Incredible! I will upload soon to my site.
