Hello folks! Despite the fact that the forums are not nearly as active as they used to be, I thought it would be appropriate to start a thread nonetheless for those who might be interested.

As some of you may know, I've recreated the Unreal Tournament 99 map DM-codex about two years ago, and I had plans to make some more but those plans were halted for some time.
I decided three days ago that it was time to pick up the pieces again. Many UT maps are on my to-do list, but I've decided to pick DM-Turbine for now.

Nothing much to show right now other than the basic geometry of the map with dev textures, but in case some people would like to follow the development of this map, this is the place. I'll update this thread every time the map has seen significant enough progress that is worth posting.

Here's a few screenshots, as well as a video showcasing the map if you want to see a walkthrough of what the playable space should look like.

Yeah, the copyright to mod for not-for-profit is usually never an issue...

But some companies tend to conflate "We hold the copyright" with "these fools better not even seem to profit off our IP" and so we were always putting out statements and stances that sought to dispel ANY notion we were infringing outside of fair use within copyrights :)

And there was a time when people really (I mean, really. I'd get countless inquiries and emails per week from fans back in the day) wanted to fund us to continue to develop -with a mind/focus to eventually do SP- and that kind of crowd-sourced energy could have attracted people to be involved and retain our best contributors and generally be more productive/dedicated. For sure.

You'll hear no argument from me that there certainly could be improvements made, which is something on the table for 5.1. Our downloads page is a mess, which should no longer be the case for 5.1 which consolidates all the functionality into a single installer.

That said, I feel like your situation is matter of your doing rather than anything we could've done. The downloads page literally tells you what to do, and the installer you want is literally the very first one listed on the page.

p.s. sorry for trying to keep our players in the loop on important security issues. We'll try not to next time.  ::)

You downloaded the .zip version which is meant for servers, while it works for clients, you can simply download the .exe and do it automatically unless you know what you're doing. Do you need instructions for .exe files? Even if you did you could've just asked.

There was never an issue with copyright, I don't know where people got that from. Nintendo had no legal take on GoldenEye since... forever.

Singleplayer is not doable because the lack of resources as Spry explained on the post above.

It wasn't a copyright issue to begin with, the lack of single player comes more from a lack of resources. Not enough devs, engine limitations, or just not wanting to put the multiplayer on the backburner to dedicate enough resources to working on a project of that size. Everything from the maps to AI would have to be completely reworked, and that's basically like starting from scratch.

All you really had to do was ask instead of throw a fit. So one very tiny hoop.

The great thing about the GE:S community is everyone knows everyone, and it's fun to play with people who have a genuine love and appreciation for the work these devs have put into this project. I don't think it's small because you don't know how to extract a zip file, but thanks for your feedback.

So rather than politely come on the forum and ask for help you act like an abusive child. No one is going to help you with that attitude so calm the feck down and try a little politeness, because you would not believe the time and dedication this team has put in over the last decade to give us all this very well polished remake... Also, you have to remember, this is a mod created on a very old engine, if you want to curse anyone it should be Valve for not updating this engine for modern systems, it's buggy to say the least, and that has nothing to do with the Goldeneye Source development team, they are essentially building on top of unreliable and unstable code.

No info provided in relation to updating to latest patch. i downloaded it then didnt have a clue what to do with the zip i just downloaded. i mean if i had created the game and/or the patch, then i would know what to do, However, i didnt create it soooo.....

So what i had to do was delete the entire game. then re-install.  upon installation of the game, i clicked play and was presented with this: 

Setup file 'gameinfo.txt' doesn't exist in subdirectory  D:\Steam\Steamapps\sourcemods\gesource'.   Check your game parameter or vconfig setting.

i mean, how many fucking hoops do i have to jump through to get this game running? good luck with your game. no surprise there are very few players.
