Title: sos_ctf4ish
Post by: adriano on November 13, 2012, 11:13:33 am
Final release download: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/71172136/sos_ctf4ish.pk3



-----------------------------------------
old post down here
-----------------------------------------
Hello all,

I write here again to present you a modified oa_ctf4ish map which is still in progress and I hope to find again some helpful  and gently persons here like I already had once. =)
sos_ctfish will be the future map name and the project was to bring all ideas of SoS-members into this map to make a fun map which is also playable.  8)
You can test the map by downloading it here: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/71172136/sos22b.pk3 (beta)

Firstly I show you some pics to give an impression but if you want to hear our own made sound (by our new member flash) then you have to download the map. =)

OK, now the things I would like to ask you... maybe you can give me some tipps:

1. How can I make a levelshot without having datas on the screen like flagg counter and "SPECTATOR press ESC and..." ?
2. Idk if I can do something on this problem... when the music ends and rebegin, then there is always a lag of 1second. =/
3.

 How you see, you can jump in the tunnel there and downwards there is a rail with 5shots. My idea is now to make a rotating door which looks like a high cylindrical ring but on one side opened (see my crappy picture xD) so that you can jump in the hole/tunnel ONLY when the rotating door is in the right position...it is rotating all time but very slowly, so let's say e.g. every 2minutes the door is in a position where you can join in and for 30seconds you can still join in and then (after 30sec) it gets too small to enter there. All that just to allow only a periodic time to use the rail but without bringing the respawn time of rail higher.

Well the question... there is no question here yet cause I didn't test it yet how it works but maybe you just know how I can handle it? I mean how I can handle in gtkradiant that the door rotates in his own axis for a certain time? =)

4. It is hard to discribe it exactly... it is better to see it in game... there are sometimes problems with the jumppads in the tunnel that sometimes doesn't work and Idk how I should build them to let them work always rightly... maybe I do principially something wrong or there are just not positioned perfectly...????


So that is enough, I would be really happy to get some help and also oppinions.... and I wish you some fun!  ;D

About 1)... To hide the hud: /cg_draw2d 0 (default is 1)


About 3)... I suppose you are searching for rotating objects.
About rotating objects, they are usually not very used, due the bad scrolling the viewer has when standing over them. The next OpenArena release will probably include a fix that makes that smoother, but anyway any old mod will continue showing them in the old way, so it will continue to be good to do not use them too much. If you wanna test what I'm saying, you can try the test map I did here (http://openarena.ws/board/index.php?topic=1908.msg44509#msg44509) and test it with current OpenArena 0.8.8 and with the experimental fix that is included in OAX Beta 51 (http://openarena.ws/board/index.php?topic=1908.msg44498#msg44498) mod (for info about how to use OAX, see DO NOT LINK[/b]) h t t p s : / / openarena . wikia . com/wiki/OAX]here (http://([b)).

Anyway, seeing the way you are thinking to use them, I suppose the smoothness would not be a problem.

Hi everibody  ;D

1) For what i know there is no way that you can make a timed rotating object, sorry.
2) About music, it gives me an error. OA write in the console that is not a 22k sound file, but the music work well.....  ??? ??? :P
3) Other stuff here:

BTW good job !!  ;D

EDIT-> P.S.: Sorry, i haven't see the passage in the tunnel  :P
P.P.S.: Sorry for my english but i'm Italian  :P

I'm unsure (others should know better), but I think this is quite common since OA added the music. That message is not an error, but just a warning... Quake3 expected 22kHz sound files, but OA added higher quality ones. I don't know if later OA versions will change music quality, or if that message will be removed (or moved to the "developer 1" verbose console logging only).

Everytime the music restart it gives me this error, don't know why.....

Bye.

Thank you for answers, you were again faster than the internet connection.  :D

  • About the rotating object I'll just give it a try as soon as I find some time; good info Gig.
  • And about Akom74's picture: 1.) Yes. Will be fixed. 2.) As you see in my pictures I normally see the texture. I am a bit unsure why you see the textures like that... maybe because of a texturepack??? Or I only see them? xD
  • about music 22k warning/error or what else: I think Gig is totally right. I get this message also in other maps. But still there it lags when the music restarts.

p.s. I think all in this topic are Italian, aren't we?  ;)

Maybe you used an original Q3A texture ? Or something else similar ? I've tryed the map in Q3A and it show me the original texture frozen, don't know why ..... Anyone else have noticed the same thing ?

Hi. I've noticed that you've placed the GPL license file, but there's no .map file included on it. Can you upload it as well?

PD: C-C-C-C-C-COMBO BREAKER! (?)

This map was included on FG's server. I havent played much on it but its a boost to those who love the map.

I quite frankly cant stand the original version.

OA now has some nice replacememnts for the old ctf4ish :)
Will you post it @ the SVN thread?

Anyway adriano: some interest to participate here:
http://openarena.ws/board/index.php?topic=4679
Would be nice to see you there with a new one ;)

Not yet. First I want to see the acceptance of the map online (if they like it more or less or if they dislike totally xD or if there is a big bug etc.).
Then there will be always time for SVN. =)

Thx, I already have noticed that but it is good that you remind me. I am near at the end of my studies, so it will be hard to find some time, but unless that, I will take this in cosideration for the future (even if I can promise nothing), cause I want to do still a FFA-map... ETA 2013 ;)
