June 2018 – General Chat

1st June 2018

Right, sit down, I’ve got something amazing to tell you…..I actually played some Wolfenstein: The New Order this week. SHOCK!! HORROR!!

I have been saying I would play for months and finally did. I WILL finish it this month. Maybe even this weekend. I struggled for the first 15 minutes while I tried to get used to the new (standard for you) keybindings and also trying to remember how to do the crouching slide, but eventually had a bit of fun.

So, the new Collections feature is online and working. Looks like we need to address multiple lines in the description but the rest seems to work. I hope you take a moment to have a look.

This weekend, I will be posting the PDF of the fan fiction event called Untold Stories and at the time of writing this, it looks like we have 9 or 10 submissions.

I plan to keep working on my mapping and probably stream a bit too.

What about you? What do you have planned?

BTW, can you guess the name of the mod that the featured image is taken from?

  1. I don’t have much planned, i will probably just play some TF2 and try to finish some point ‘n’ click games i have in my pc, btw, what’s the name of the mod on the image? It looks really interesting and it will be something to play until nostalgiaville comes out.

  2. I’ve been working on part two of Quiet Rehabilitation for HL2: Ep Two. It’s coming along nicely. Unfortunately, I won’t be able to participate on NostalgiaVille. Good luck to everyone!

  3. I plan on (finally) working on the project I’ve procrastinated the past few weeks – building my own active bandpass filter pedal! Aside from that, a buddy and me are fooling around with mapping again, I hope to get back into mapping more again this way.

    I’m rather excited for the fanfiction event to be posted!

  4. Hello everybody! Yesterday installed Rock24, Get a Life just for nostalgia… It’s very good and easy to find and download old mods from Your site, Phillip. I miss those very big adventure mods, like these and Minerva, Offshore, etc.

  5. I can sympathise, “Return to Castle Wolfenstein” took me long enough to finish! The nightmare of playing long games or mods on and off…
    I’m replaying “Strider Mountain” at the moment. missing front wheels and all! It is no way as hard as I remember and not stuttery at all. i think my skills were as low spec as my PC back then.

    That feature image is driving me crazy! I remember that mod just enough to know it was rather an odd one. I had a mod list I updated every time I played a new one, but a ransomware attack took it.

    Back up your data every week people!

    Someone please hurry up and identify it, before I go nuts! 🙂

  6. Glad to see the site is back up! I have spent the last couple of weeks replaying Heart of Evil – Napalm Edition. It’s my second favorite HL mod after the They Hunger trilogy.

  7. KRS2

    I love those mods! Especially They Hunger

  8. This is a random question, but how can I fix the sensitivity in the updated GoldSrc engine games? I tried it on Counter-Strike 1.6 and Half-Life and aiming felt a bit slippery. No matter what I do, it just doesn’t feel as sharp anymore.

    1. Hmm that’s odd, I don’t have any kinds of issues with aiming in GoldSrc. I tested it out with different mice as well. Did you try to enable mouse raw input in the options? Myself I always have to have that enabled or I get some weird accelerations effects and sometimes it’s quite choppy.
