Re: Star Fox: Event Horizon for FSO
With the third demo out, do I need to keep the first and second demos files?
You do not need either of the previous versions.

Well, there's the script-eval SEXPs that allow you to call lua functions, set lua variables, etc.
I suggest having a look at the scripting.tbl article on the wiki: http://www.hard-light.net/wiki/index.php/Scripting.tbl

Alright, I'll see if I can come up with something on my own. If there's another mod that uses the drawing icon feature please let me know about it though. This is something I really feel needs to be in a Starfox game.

Just some more gameplay stuff and cinematic experimentation. Also, the Aparoids are back:

the same from me.

This man is completly, insenly impressing. From someone who doesn't understand fred, to a STANDALONE creator, with everything totaly replaced and written anew... basicly. And he does that ALONE, and that FAST...

You are doing a ****ing great deal of job, Nephalim.

Are you really doing all this alone, UndyingNephalim? I always thought you were simply the leader (or spokesperson) of a team. That one person couldn't be putting all this together alone.

I do everything except the music on my own pretty much. Every time I've tried to put a team together it's usually ended up being a disaster, with people either never keeping up a decent pace or just all together vanishing.

To be fair I did not exactly come into this with no experience at all: I do have almost a decade of experience working with game engines. I've worked for both Sony on a PS4 launch title that was unfortunately cancelled and a company called Subscience Studios making mobile games in the past. I've also been making this for almost half a decade now: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tyxWMTD1W5A

The secret is I have no life outside of these things at all.  :lol:

Re: Star Fox: Event Horizon for FSO
A quick question, Fred2 says that set-camera-shudder only works in the first person view. Is there any way to get the camera to shake while in chase or external view?

Despite the wording of the set-camera-shudder help, it looks like it should work in chase camera mode as well.

That being said, allowing the camera to shake regardless of camera mode looks like it wouldn't be too hard to add, but it does require source code changes (don't think you could fake it with Lua scripting).

Re: Star Fox: Event Horizon for FSO
This is really awesome, but while watching the gameplay trailer, I finally figured out what was bothering me:
When you hit something in a weak spot, it should flash white/red.

All else is above any criticism from me. Awesome work, I'm looking forward to it.

It doesnt seem to work outside of the first person view sadly.

I would love to do that! Is there a way to do that in this engine?

Well, all that explains a lot how you're managing to do so many different things at such speed. It's really exciting stuff you're doing. I wish you luck.

Which Total War is that mod for?

Is it set that way (3rd person camera shake disabled) so Afterburner doesn't ruin 'live action' cutscenes?

Re: Star Fox: Event Horizon for FSO
The cutscene camera is prevented from having camera shaking with its own conditional (preventing the "shake" function from running in the first place). In this case, the reason that the chase camera doesn't get shaking applied is because it sets Viewer_obj to NULL, and the camera shake only applies if the Viewer_obj is the player. I'm not entirely sure why the chase camera sets the Viewer_obj to NULL; from a quick glance around, the only thing it would appear to impact is whether or not the shaking gets applied, which would seem to make more sense to cut out with a more explicit conditional...

Re: Star Fox: Event Horizon for FSO
Does anyone know if there is a way to Strafe through the event editor? Current I'm using the key pressed condition and then setting the player's X speed to either 100 or -100, but it doesn't seem to work at all. I would really love to have circle strafing for certain craft.
