Title: BETA 3 Released! (Follow Up)
Post by: Wake[of]theBunT on February 07, 2009, 12:26:49 PM
Howdy folks,

Well what a day! With over 3000+ page views, thousands of downloads, and hundreds of players in-game, the team is very humbled and excited that the launch of BETA 3.0 has been received as such a roaring success. The developers have been in-game a lot as you may have noticed, answering questions and quite frankly just enjoying the game with all of you. Constant praise, thanks, impressions, and suggestions are given and we are very appreciative!

Download now and join in on the fun!

Client:
Official Mirror: Moddb (http://www.moddb.com/mods/goldeneye-source/downloads/goldeneye-source-beta-3-01-client-install)
Official Mirror: FileFront (http://files.filefront.com/GoldenEye+Source+BETA+v30/;13225953;/fileinfo.html)
Official Mirror: Internode (http://games.on.net/file/24000/Goldeneye_Source_Beta_3_Client)

For more mirrors, and for our server and linux files, head over to our Official Wiki (http://wiki.goldeneyesource.net/index.php/Beta_3_Mirrors)

Check out our official wiki which has been packed full of many helpful pages by our coder guru, killermonkey. Full info on client setup, server setup. As well as help for server configs, and their relevant cvars and conditions. Head straight for "Articles related to beta 3" Check it out (http://wiki.goldeneyesource.net) Plus the mirrors which are always updating can be reached from the wiki front page as well!

The wiki is a good place to get info and will only become better as the week goes by, however we would like to give the server community some basic advice to keep your patron, our fan base, happy.

One example, It's probably not going to be smart to have LTK mode with 32 players in Deathmatch. So if that is what you planned or have in place right now, think about adding the cvar value ge_teamplay 1 to your config file! This way, now the gameplay is Team Deathmatch and you only have 16 possible enemies to hit you in one shot.

Second example, instead of having long maps that go for 30+ mins during round based gameplay, try utilizing mp_timelimit 15 with the additional value ge_roundtime 300. This will give you 3 rounds of 5 mins per map of 15 minutes in length. If you want a longer feeling round, you can always make your ge_roundtime MORE seconds than your mp_timelimit value so that only ONE round is played per map or match.

Here is an example list of the varying conditions and server limits you can have that will give us all hours of balanced fun :

Simple things like this can help make your servers more appealing. And remember there are endless combinations you can play around with for game-modes and weapon sets. Get on the wiki for specifics and then get in and tailor your servers for the benefit of a growing fan base!
...................................................................
We are pleased to announce the GE:S team have 2 official servers currently, provided generously for free by impulsegaming.net (http://impulsegaming.net) that has some of this guideline in place, Check them out! and there will be 2 more official GE:S server coming online within 24 hours.

208.43.68.34:27015 [Deathmatch 20man]
74.86.56.36:27015 [TDM 24 man]
...................................................................
We appreciate all the providers of GoldenEye: Source servers and we should all try support them and help them, as they help us play this great mod!

(http://img259.imageshack.us/img259/8137/minigesyh2.png)Video Contest!(http://img259.imageshack.us/img259/8137/minigesyh2.png)
Alrighty its time to whip out your videography skills community, and prepare your sony vegas' and final cut pro's for a workout.

This contest is to make the most entertaining beta 3 community video. You can do anything your imagination draws to and we cant wait to see them run wild, but we'd like to see elements such as fly through angles and basically not just First Person View in your footage. Show off our mod in as many ways as you can.

So have fun, make some demo's and record up some sequences in any style you excel in. Machinima, trailer style, or epic gameplay pieces. The better you are at all these the more appealing and entertaining your showcase will be! The best will be judged by the team but the best few submitted will be displayed on our youtube channel, http://youtube.com/goldeneyesource

Good luck, and one thing to note : You MUST use goldenEye: Source music, sourced from the BETA3 OST (http://ryanlobbins.com/mods/goldeneye/downloads/GES_Beta3_OST.zip), as we cannot host up or accept as a finalist any videos with copyright music we don't have permissions to. You can however make your own music to use in the video.

The winner of this will likely be invited to the developer group as official videographer. Tell your talented friends, they could be a GE:S Dev too!

(http://img259.imageshack.us/img259/8137/minigesyh2.png)Issues(http://img259.imageshack.us/img259/8137/minigesyh2.png)
It must be noted to server providers that Linux binaries are acting up. We realize it is unfortunate for Linux server hosts at this time, but we are working hard to get a fix patch for this. You can still host a mod on a Linux setup but do it at your own discretion, because your players may have issues with using chat and basic use commands. VOIP will work.
.......................................

Again, thanks for this day we have longed for so long, we will begin working hard for you asap to patch the very few issues/bugs that have been reported on windows servers,  into a small download available in just a few days! Now you can stop reading, start downloading and getting in GE:S servers.

Thanks community

Sincerely,
Team GoldenEye: Source

When Valve is concerned windows servers are best, many times I have seen updates to source engine break linux servers, for weeks HL2DM had no text chat on all linux servers, I also think certain things are timed differently such as grenades (hl2dm).

We are having the same bug with our linux servers that hl2dm had, no chat.

Hi,
First up F***ing great work on the mod guys. Just one major problem though...

In the client zip download it seems that the file zil131_open.vvd is corrupt and now for me to play the game I must redownload the entire 500+ mb installer, therefore using over 1gb of my download limit.
I was just wondering if someone could please upload this file to filefront or something of that nature for me, I would be very VERY grateful :)

I like that, it has potential, keep going and make it longer and i think you'll do good. BTW the accent makes it funnier actually.. not a diss just is
Title: Re: BETA 3 Released! (Follow Up)
Post by: Jonathan [Spider] on February 08, 2009, 04:29:14 PM
X-tra dude that was actually really funny i LOLed for real haha. if you get smoother camera movement, and keep the french accent i think you could find yourself with a spot on the dev team.

keep working at it to make sure that in the end you have something amazing. this defanetly has potential.

Post by: Sole Signal [Audix] on February 08, 2009, 07:31:47 PM
Haha nice vid. Good stuff for sure. I like the wide pans and the humor is great, but as spider mentioned it's a tad choppy at points.

Although this is all moot since my GE:S footage will blow everyone else away (those in Complex tonight w/ server update know what I mean).

ey,
just wondering if anyones tryed using the demo smoother at all??
i tryed last night and i was having a fair bit of trouble, for some reason every time i tryed to create a new key, it would reset to the original location.
I have no problems demo smoothing in cs:s using the process i used in ge:s, so im just wondering if anyone else had a similar problem
thanks

Post by: PPK on February 08, 2009, 10:18:57 PM
@X-tra

The video is hilarious. The accent really is the best. Perhaps, in a certain way, the choppy camera work, as others have mentioned, contributes to the overall funny stance of the video and could be interpreted as a feature and not as a flaw from the video maker; it could be seen as put there with a purpose. It looks good and I laughed hard the first time I saw it. Nice work and keep makin' more!

the weekly updates just arent possible while we are in production, but expect more frequent updates than what we had in the past. i would expect around once a month if not slightly more than that.

Really like it so far. The "Source Beta 3" font in the intro is a bit generic; try searching for the "goldeneye" font. Pans are mostly awesome; love the Temple top-down view. Adding text on the bottom of the screen titling the maps (i.e. Facility, Runway, Complex) would help. Great stuff though, man.

Something I've been wondering for ages... HOW do you get such nice camera movement like that? Are you in spectator controlling it with your keys and mouse or what? I've wanted to start a trailer of my own but this is one thing I've always needed to know how to do in order to get a good professional feel to it.

I'm using the Demo Smoother and Source Recorder (both are built into source). They're a pain in the ass to learn and use but you can get some spectacular shots with them.

Also, is anybody going to comment on this at all? I was really hoping for some suggestions and opinions on whether or not this is any good yet.

Oh, really? I didn't know source had that stuff. I'll have to take a look.

As for suggestions, get some first person gameplay. You seem to be doing an alright job of showing off the maps and that's fine but maybe some game mode specific shots, some text to go with the maps you show off. Some interesting Behind-the-player video of the MWtGG. I'd just experiment with all the angles you can whether it be with showing off the maps or showing off the gameplay. Gotta get some close-ups of the characters too.

If it's a trailer you want to show off as much as you can in a relatively short time period.

Oh, and I've always wanted a trailer to include a view of the raining bodies on cradle when you throw proximity mines into the mix. (or anything else that causes bodies to take the leap of faith) I just love watching them hit the ground. >_>

Music is important, at least I think so. I generally start with a good piece of music then I design my video around it. Switching scenes on certain beats. Maybe sync up the kills with the beat for a bit. Just get creative. Syncing up music to the video is a must if you want a high quality piece of work.

I like the collective suicide idea. Or you could make a column from the bottom of the cradle up to the top, consisting only of Boris and with an explosive barrel underneath.

The ending could have 32 people jumping off of Cradle and firing at eachother in midair with AR33s.

Yeah, that would be fun, but it doesn't fit in with the rest of the trailer, nor do I have 32 freinds on my list with enough patience to form a giant stack or all jump off the side of cradle at the exact same time while shooting each other. The purpose of this trailer was to be more of a map trailer, with hints of combat growing as the trailer goes on. It starts off with an empty complex then ends with an ZOMGWTF BLOW EVERYTHING OF CRADLE where everyone has mines.

I was thinking of doing a Trailer #2 which shows off the combat aspect of the game, essentially a stylized frag video like the original Beta 3 Gameplay Trailer by VC, but with Added Blur, bloom, transitions, slow motion, music, and other crazy stuff (essentially like this trailer, but in first person). So, I guess if you have any crazy demos where you get the highest number of kills, please try to send them to me (I'm not so good at the game most of the time).

If you guys liked this trailer, I'll finish it up (I wanted to add one more scene at the end (at the suggestion of Spider) where you see Bond get blown off the side of Cradle, and his body flies down tward the camera as it's panning by and as his body hits the camera, it snaps to back and shows the trailer credits.

Oh and I added all of Audix's suggestions to the video, as well as Nozzy's idea of Syncing certian parts of the video with the music.

Perhaps you could do another trailer, like bloopers and outtakes or something like that, just for fun. If you need anyone willing to jump off the cradle, just say and I'll be the stunt double. ;)

So I've been working for the past few weeks on a trailer of my own. Here's (http://apal.isa-geek.org/filehost/ssl/GES%20Trailer/ges_trailer_wip.wmv) a current WIP of it. Please provide any suggestions/crits/comments, and I'll change bits of the video, as I'm sure there's lots to add I haven't thought of yet.
I love it, it needs some more archives, but it's really nice.

A new version of the trailer, with some redone editing, and a few new shots squeezed in (Archives).

Once again, comments would be appreciated.

Download it here (http://apal.isa-geek.org/filehost/ssl/GES%20Trailer/ges_trailer_wip_2.wmv).

I should be able to get started on trailer #2 (combat) after this whole server mess gets cleared up, and I'll probably need a few people willing to run into my gunfire (I'm not so great that Beta 3, not used to not having to lead), or some crazy frag fest demos *looks at VC*.



Oh, and in an unrelated note, I've begun porting ge_library_ssl to beta 3, this time with improved textures, custom models, and new lighting! Look for WIP shots soon.

Wow! That is one amazing trailer! I loved it, although I saw a lot of banding in the lighting, is your computer really bad?

The Glas window in Library is also poping in and out, others than it's really good.
Maybe you can reduce the aliasing a bit.

Um, I'm using a brand-new computer I bought just for beta 3, here are the specs:
2.6 GHz 64-bit Quad Core
6GB DDR2 RAM
GeForce 9500 GS

In that video, I'm running the game at max settings, it's probably the video compression that's messing it up. (I'll save to a 116 Mb AVI file for the final video if you guys like it.)

And yeah, I realize the glass flickers in that library shot, once I see a server running library_classic or stack_classic again I'll go and re-do it. (I can't fix the current demo file as the updates made all of my demo files unusable, and it's also an unfixable visleaf issue.)




EDIT: Ok, so I redid the Library Classic shot, and tried saving in an AVI format, which made the video appear slightly higher quality but made the filesize explode. Other than that, if you guys don't have any other suggestions, I think this is the best I can get this video without cramming in too much stuff in and making it feel rushed.

Here's the final version (I hope) (http://apal.isa-geek.org/filehost/ssl/GES%20Trailer/ges_trailer_wip_4.zip)

Look for Trailer #2 soon!

The video is well made. It serves as nice presentation for the mod. +1

I'm working on a blooper vid atm; initially it was just going to be render miscues or map oddities but I'm going to expand it to fun gameplay stuff too. Taking submissions now. :)

Great stuff, SSL.
