  1. Happy Thanksgiving! To celebrate, I'm gonna play the game that I'm most thankful for... featuring the Reddit Mod Build!

      Jazz Jackrabbit?

      Well "gold" is just the locked content master sent off for physical manufacturing. These days it's typical to not worry so much since you can just fix/add things with a day one patch. Although there are rumours circulating that this particular instance is more critical and there is an issue requiring recalling the PS4 version altogether, since it may cause hardware issues (possibly bricking the console altogether). It could just be the usual internet BS though, impossible to say at this point.

      But that aside, such a delay right before release is very unusual, mostly because of marketing. That is probably going to cost them 10s of millions of dollars, at the very least.

      Interpreting comments from CDPR's post-delay teleconference (albeit via someone else's translation from Polish to English), it sounds like it's probably the Xbone and PS4 releases causing them grief (presumably the Xbone S particularly).

      They were crunching long before they officially announced they were crunching. Most studios operate in almost perpetual crunch. It's why they have such large turnovers.

  5. Ok, so I'm trying to update one of my mods and when the file upload reaches like 5% upload I get an error saying "-200" and after the file is just grey with "Upload Failed" written underneath it.


    Does anyone know what this is?

      Doing a quick bit of Googling, from IPB's own support forum:

      "The -200 error shows up generally when a PHP error we are unable to capture (such as "out of memory" or "max execution time exceeded") has occurred. PHP ends up exiting and printing out the core PHP error, and the uploader (which is a general open source uploader - we didn't write it) shows the "-200" error as a result."

      This would be one that presumably only @Tyvokka can answer/address.

  6. Me: *Edits dialogue and tries to save*

    DLGEditor: *Clicking on 'File' somehow doesn't open the menu with 'save' but instead starts deleting the dialogue trees I've written*

    And I thought I'd seen everything in these modding tools...

      Sounds like something you should consult a priest about.

  9. I was gone for awhile because of stuff. But I'm back now. It's going to take some time to get back in the swing of things as I'm starting from scratch at this point (because stuff). Anyway, @DarthParametric totally nailed the Rancor Trio holograms idea I had so definitely check it out.

  10. Yo ho ho.

    Can I get someone to remind me where I'm supposed to put DeNCS? Need to decompile a couple scripts and I can't remember how I got it working before. 

    1. DarthParametric

      DarthParametric

      You can put it anywhere. It needs the game-specific nwscript.nss and requires Java. That's it.

  11. Thrilled I was able to see A New Hope in the cinemas for the first time! Now I know what it was like in 1977!

      You can pump way more polys than that without any dramas. What the engine chokes on is entity count, not poly count.

      Ah, so they are supposed to be full length sleeves pushed up. That might work if you want to actually model some of those folds/creases in. Right now they are far too smooth and straight, so they look like that's their full length.

      I suppose if you are sticking to the artwork then he sort of has a Prequel-style Jedi belt rather than a standard belt like I was assuming.

      I think lengthening the sleeves would be an improvement.  Alternatively, you could make them even shorter, about half their current length, ending around the mid-bicep. Elbow-length just looks odd.

      You might also want to consider a physical mesh belt buckle rather than just painting one on, assuming that was the plan.

  17. So I see PCGameMods.com is back in existence, in its traditional form of an error message.

      Doing a domain lookup, I don't think it ever went away as such. It just doesn't exist as a functional site.

      Given the significant number of IP and registrar changes over the past decade and the fact that it is listed as being for sale, I imagine it has gone through the hands of a series of squatters looking to make a quid off it.

      Since I know there are some weirdos like @Untold Prophecy that like the ROTS version (for some reason), I figure I'll add a hack job conversion of it.

      I need to make a few minor envmap tweaks. It's always such a pain in the ass trying to get that right.

      Yeah, this is the game hilt. I modelled it over the top of the CAD model that I made a couple of years ago for 3D printing and used a couple of bits of that for the high poly bake. The textures won't look as good as in the renders in-game of course.

      Still need to add/tweak a couple of details, and I'm not really sure on the grenade body. I think they might have just painted it black. I need to find some better pics.

  23. Remember @Quanon?  I sure do but I apparently I forgot I had a text interview that could've gone in Stoney's M4-78 chapter.  As the models for the Archons are in both Stoney's version and in the EP, I may as well use the interview in the next chapter. Since Quanon has not been heard from in a long time and he no longer responds to emails, I'll need some one to "perform" his interview.  If that sounds like something that you might be interested in, please PM me.

      I didn't complain about it because I didn't see it. Otherwise I would have said exactly the same thing.

      I don't think you should be impersonating people. If you absolutely must have audio, at least use some robotic text-to-speech thing that is obviously not Human.
