Bill Clinton would be great. It would be easy since the sprite is already made and it truly would give the feel that this mod was a sequel released in 1997. :blink:

Yeah but I kinda like the idea of this mod being both oldskool and forward-looking (EDuke32) at the same time.

Just reached Morningwood (and got killed, d'oh), decided to stop playing because it's late here.

But so far, this shit is AMAZING!!!!!

Gonna play it until the end, but wow, there has been put a lot of effort and care into a lot of things, every detail and piece is very well put and executed.

It's wonderful guys, just amazing.

I am not done yet (just entered Anderson Mine), but what I have seen so far is really great, and if 3DR had released this as an addon for the game back in late 1997/early 1998 or so, I think we would have all been blown away. :blink: Highly entertaining, kinda cinematic feeling (especially due to the soundtrack - was that actually taken from DNF?) and always something new to see.

Some issues I have found so far:
- The sounds which are used from the 2001 trailer seem to be very low quality or at least sound like that (faint, dull etc). That's only an issue for me or also for others?
- In the EDF Headquarters map, I have texture distortions when standing on the truck which you have to lift to enter the ventilation shaft below it (see attachment).
- Besides the glitch with the speedmeter, the motorbike behaves weird sometimes when driving fast downhill. It would "float" if you don't slow down, and sometimes it just kills you for no apparent reason, e.g. when driving backwards (happened to me when going backwards in the parking lot in front of the EDF HQ).

Full review will follow after I am done with this.

Yeah, our sound experts did the best they could with that, in the end we ended up replacing Graves's dialog with plain text because the original (background-noise-free) audio was way below the quality of the two other NPCs (the chick & the "this thing's really pissed off" guy).

Yeah we knew about that. Gambini never had that problem because he's running NVIDIA but I had the exact same problem as you. The glitch was much worse in the map's previous iterations, however, so the current version is a pretty good compromise.

Looks great, played the first level. But I too am running into sound distortion. The guy at the door sounded like he was underwater, with strange echoes and the like. Honestly I would've chalked it up to bad quality samples, but his voice was MUCH clearer in the trailer.

I tried screwing with the sound options and no dice yet.

Yes, the problem with those audio clips is that there simply isn't a "pure sample" available. We had to clean up those bits from all the background noise you hear in the trailer but the available methods eat away some of the dialog too.

Well, if you plan to update the mod, you guys are free to use my DNF Gloves.

Thanks to everybody for the cheers. The repercussions in less than 20 hours (im just back from work) are breathtaking. Much of that is simply because it is a recreation of DNF but still means we did a good job.

Played a little today. The motorcycle is a lot of fun. Great job, guys. Will report back when I'm further in.

I love Duke4.net. It's one of my life's proudest accomplishments. I'm proud of the community we have built here and the beautiful work that comes out of it every day. I'm proud of the friends I've made here and the kind people who made all of this possible with their hard work, donations, and participation. Thank you.

Of course. People come because it's DNF, and stay because it's fun and quality. People wouldn't keep rating it high if it was bad (generally speaking).

Some quick answers to stuff I read (canīt find the will to quote them all):

We were well aware of the bike problems. The thing is, it was coded by Lezing and heīs not active at all these days. I emailed him many times about the issue and we expected him to come up until the last minute. The advice is not to use the mouse at all when riding it and not letting the bike run loose (at least not in slopes). I could barely notice that problem in all this time because i always drive it full speed. It is very controllable and invites to slam the finger in the "gas" key all the time, so if you do that there are almost no chances of getting the "flying glitch". But BTW if youīre playing and the problem occurs, just press any directional key and itīs all in place again.

The speedometer is also something I just didnīt want to remove, even when itīs completely broken at its current state. I was meaning to ask DT to fix it (he did some other fixes for the bike, as adding the ignition sound and the ability to run over monsters) but we could never coincide and the time of releasing the thing was closer and closer.

To Bloodshot: I didnīt have the time to include your shotgun, I spent sometime looking for a way to include it but there was at least one missing frame and some of the shots didnt have the angle I expected. Also, I was going to ask you for the model so I could retexture it and take more suitable shots but then again the time was short.

About the president thing. As Mikko said, I never understood the Gralīs voice when mentioning that bit. When he added the subtitles and I realized of such detail, I inmediatly suggested him that we could have made so Bill Clinton was trapped in the dam. Itīs funny that Mikko never realized that the engineerīs face is him from that random shot thread lol.

Dammit, in the last level, after I meet the retarded guy with the red key, I got stuck in a non-shooting state for the rest of the map:

Spoiler


I didn't like that you can't get out of the donkey, or you are forced to leave it after some point. Also why can't you jump from the bike while it is moving? And I don't understand why you would not let the player shoot with the pistol while on it.

Apparently in the Dam I was able to somehow sequence break? I couldn't tell you what I did but I managed to get trapped in the area where you need a red keycard (after the explosion) with no way out and only a blue keycard. If there was something I missed that was supposed to help me get out of there, I certainly couldn't find it. I searched every corner and even used a jetpack to look around. Managed to find a hidden atomic health and that's it. So apparently I did something out of order? Or there was a glitch somewhere.*

Also on the donkey I was unable to shoot (I had a shotgun at the ready at the time, if that matters), I had to use god mode to get past it.

The motorcycle is nice but also definitely broken. I did get the flying glitch, and numerous glitches where it seemed to just randomly explode (using DNKROZ showed me the bike wasn't touching anything, so I'm not sure what the deal was).

Also there's quite a few areas in the first two maps that have things unblocked (fences for example) that probably should be, and things that probably shouldn't be blocked (like bits of debris) that are.

The last consideration is given how many surprise death traps there are you should have some kind of checkpoint system. I'm sure they never caught you by surprise but you're the developers :blink:.

It could probably have used a bit more testing and polish, and some code tweaks/fixes, but in general good effort. I like the quality to length ratio. If you did another mod (sequel) using ideas from other DNF versions I'd play it.

*Edit: On IRC I was told to shoot the portal but I did that more than a few times and there was no reaction.

I suffered that problem a couple of times (not sure how to fix it now). I never liked to be "locked" that way. With the donkey, itīs the same thing. Mikko is more fond of modern shooters which means heīs used to be controlled by the game. Long discussions we had about those things but Mikko is stubborn like a rock :blink: Feel happy that at least you can look around in some of those sequences.

About jumping off the bike: You can jump off it at relatively slow speed (about 10% of its max speed). And you canīt shot because you need one hand for the clutch and another hand for the gas handle. What hand is duke going to hold the pistol with? his third hand? Jokes aside we had what it was, the bike has been donated by Lezing and he made it with other purposes, we adapted it as better as we could.

Honestly i'd suggest if an update is done for this that those sound clips either be removed entirely and have it all be done with text, or some folks do some voice work. I know a guy who can do a pretty solid Graves-style voice.

Well, consireding that:

Weīre open anybody that wants to re-record those voices by yourselves! If you are reading this and think you can do one of those actors pretty well: Gus, the Gral Graves, etc. Email us a sample and if we find it good we will use it, credit you and probably ask you to record a few more lines.

You can leave him behind at the start of the level, simply by jumping over him. I guess it's a bug, but it works.

Gambini said, not even 2 posts above yours, that the bike was coded by Lezing and that he is MIA. As far as I know Mikko's only really started coding a couple of months ago so expecting him to be able to change that code enough to let the player shoot the pistol is unfair.
