In that case, could you release the Demo in Moddb just as it is only with the option to disable rain and snow? I really can't wait to keep playing this lol

Oh, in any case, i meant this one http://www.moddb.com/mods/blade-of-agony/downloads

That seems to be the most stable version, or the one with intention to be played by public. Looking forward to that demo.

The most stable version, provided with switchable weather effects through menues, would be always this one, IMHO...

Though I'd suggest waiting for the official demo to be released. Dev-versions are simply dev-versions and not working as intended :)

Yep I couldn't play the second mission anyways. Still the experience overall is improved. I can't figure out which feature is the one giving me the lag spikes, but it's so regular that it feels like it's something looped in the scripts maybe? It's like a clock. I'm gonna have to update my pc anyways, but as a suggestion, if you haven't thought about it, I'd say the second mission could be divided in different hubs to make it more friendly to certain pcs. I have no idea if it will work though

Got permanent crash after trying to talk to Cpt. James Ryan in bar (after saving him in 2nd mission) and chosing the 4th question: "What about agent skills?".

When talking to guy that transports you before mission c1m3 - his text is "Please insert dialogue here".

Mission c1m3 starting point is in unsafe room where you shooted by some soldier.

Mission c1m2 RAIN sprite effect too unoptimized, lags and requires too much system resources... Good that now it could be disabled.

Missing textures:

Problem you have - is unoptimized rain weather effect. You must disable it in "BOA Options / Weather Effects / Rain - Off"

>switchable weather effects

I've played with the dev build myself, and I get the same crash. I've enclosed a report on it. And yes, Darren does say "Insert Dialogue Here" twice before C1M3 begins. Also, when I was doing C1M1, I kept hearing this odd clunking sound that wasn't present in the other maps. I assume it's a clock sound, but the ambience for it is miscalculated or something. There's also the small issue of the bottom of the status bar showing through the black screen when I get killed.

However, I do like the novelty of finding NES cartridges as easter eggs - I don't know what they do yet, but I'll see for myself.

Although I haven't been active on the forums for the last month or more, I have been trying to keep an eye on this project. I very much like what I am seeing. The quality of the mapping is superb and I really love the various realistic settings (within the possibilities of the engine). The dam and C1M0 particularly caught my eye and I'm really interested to see how the Zeppelin level is going to shape up. I've found it really pretty tough to play and the usual Doom run-and-gun approach will simply get you killed. That's not a bad thing in itself but it does mean that firing it up for a quick casual play isn't really an option.

I don't have much to report because I'm not sure what people have caught already. So, I really just wanted to drop in and say "good job". In many ways, this feels like the 2.5D engine sequel to Wolf3D that never officially existed. It feels somewhere between the original game and RtCW (but nearer the RtCW end of that spectrum in many ways).

The only thing I'd like to ask, and it may be too late to address, or the answer may just be "suck it up Enjay, deal with it, that's how doors work" is the various swinging doors throughout the maps. Just like real-life doors usually do, they always open the same way regardless of which side of the door you are on. However, in real life, you can tell which way a door is going to open because you move it and, if it is opening towards you, you pull it and step back with it: you are in control. However, in a game with an engine like this, swing doors often mean a door opening into your face at its own pace with you having no real control over it other than having to duck back to avoid blocking the door's movement.

"I am a sleek shadow of death infiltrating a Nazi base but I can't open a door without smacking myself in the face with it and getting stuck!" :lol:

Is there any way of addressing this?

Suggestions:
  • Make doors always open away from the player regardless of which side they are opened from
  • Put a visual clue (different texture) on the side of the door that will open towards you so that you get to learn which way a door will open
  • Replace some doors with sliding doors where appropriate (e.g. some of the metal industrial doors would be suitable candidates for sliding).
