Title: RELEASE - HWBP Remastered Demo (V3)
Post by: MatthTheGeek on March 02, 2015, 01:38:58 pm
Fresh after release, HWBP is one of the first mods to be ported to HWR.

This is a early version with still a number of outstanding issues but pretty much everything that was in the classic version is available here See the readme for more info.

======= IMPORTANT NOTES ========

This version of HWBP is intended for Homeworld Remastered. You can find the HW2 Classic demo here http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=398853576&searchtext=

This is a very early version with a number of outstanding issues. Please keep that in mind while playing.

For now, this mod is intended for Gauntlet gameplay mode only.

Everything in this mod can be considered free to use as long as credit is given where it's due. Feel free to contact me if you are not sure who exactly is to be credited for something specific in the mod.

I think it would have been MUCH better to just wait till you had more to show.  What point is it being the first, if all it does is have people take a look at you alpha, say it sucks and never come back?

I presumed this is primarily for those who have played the classic version and want to get a preview of how it looks in remastered. hwbp classic is definitely where new people should start with.

Matth, this project is too important to not have a skirmish mode!

Is it as easy as porting over the scripts from the HW Classic version or is it a bit more involved with Remastered?

I have been having some technical difficulties with my Demo. I don't know if this is the right place to post it in.
