Latest Testing Version

This thread will always contain the latest build of Double Action: Boogaloo and chat about the changes.

WARNING: THIS GAME IS IN EPSILON. IT IS NOT INTENDED AS A FINAL PRODUCT. It's reasonably stable and should be straightforward to install and use, but you will encounter bugs and a lot of placeholder art.



Windows: http://www.moddb.com/mods/double-action ... 14-windows
Linux: http://www.moddb.com/mods/double-action ... -214-linux
Last update: December 7, 2013
Requires Source SDK Base 2013

Patch to update from Epsilon
http://www.moddb.com/mods/double-action ... pdate-only

IF YOU HAVE AN SDK 2007 VERSION INSTALLED you must delete it before installing this one. If you get a "could not load client library" or similar error, you need to delete the dab folder, restart steam, reinstall, restart steam again, basically just keep reinstalling and restarting steam until it works.

IF YOU SEE NO SERVERS you must delete your dab directory and reinstall. Also try verifying your tool cache for SDK 2013.



Git repository: https://github.com/BSVino/DoubleAction
Remote: git@github.com:BSVino/DoubleAction.git

All of the assets (models sounds etc) are in a shared BitTorrent Sync folder. Here is the read-only secret: BPOJT55Z4BFMS6H3OH6QR7IFHZN3LDGP5 With this secret you can access all of the source files for the assets. You can also access all of our source files through HTTP here.



DEDICATED SERVER SETUP INSTRUCTIONS

1. Download SteamCMD here: https://developer.valvesoftware.com/wiki/SteamCMD
2. Make a directory for srcds, I called mine "srcds".
3. Put SteamCMD inside that folder and run it. On Windows it's just a double click, on Linux it's ./steamcmd
4. Type "login anonymous" but without the quotes, or you can use your own Steam login if you like.
5. Type "force_install_dir ./sdk2013" but without the quotes.
6. Type "app_update 244310 validate" but without the quotes. This will download a whole bunch of crap.
7. Type "quit" but without the quotes.
8. Go into the "sdk2013" folder that should now exist inside your "srcds" folder.
9. Unpack the dab.zip or dab.tgz (either is fine) into the sdk2013 directory such that the dab directory is in the sdk2013 directory. Your setup should look like this: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/420 ... rsetup.png

From here on the instructions are different for each platform. On Windows:
9. Type Windowskey-R. (Windowskey is the button between ctrl and alt on the bottom left of your keyboard.) Type "cmd" and press enter. This should open a command prompt.
10. Type "cd \srcds\sdk2013" or whatever the directory you made is called.
11. Type "srcds -game dab" but, of course, without the quotes.
12. Press the "Start server" button.

On Linux:
9. In a command prompt, type "cd ~/srcds/sdk2013/bin" or whatever the directory you made is called.
10. Type these two commands:
ln -s soundemittersystem_srv.so soundemittersystem.so
ln -s scenefilecache_srv.so scenefilecache.so
11. Type "cd .." and then "./srcds_run -game dab +map da_rooftops"

So with that said, here's the first version. It features only the basic stunts, diving, sliding, rolling, and prone. It comes stock with the basic Half-Life 2: Deathmatch weapons. I want to focus on the stunting and see if we can get that feeling good before we move on to other things. Let's set up a testing time and see how well it works. How about tonight, 7pm EST? That's about midnight for euros and 4pm for west coasters.

edit: Shit. We need a volunteer to set up a server.

Or, you know, the only server in the browser.

It's a dedicated, currently on my main computer but I plan on making a secondary server box to run shit on.

I just updated it to fix some of the most obvious problems of initial playtesting.

* Fixed perma-god mode.
* Reduced slide time so players come to a stop a bit faster.
* If players hit something while sliding they'll immediately stand up again.
* If a slide becomes slow enough the player will stand up again.
* If a player dives headfirst into a wall they'll stand up instead of go prone.
* Fixed the stunt button not working if the player slid into a corner.
* Lowered the slide/roll camera a bit.
* Fixed players spawning prone/sliding/whatever because they died that way.

That should make it more or less playable. We'll do some playing tonight and see if it's any fun.

Slides are still too floaty and now grenades have no effect on whoever throws one.

We could setup a Sourceforge account and keep everybody synced with SVN, or the easier version would be to just setup a dropbox account.

I knew you would come back for us Tog :3

Dropbox would work great but problem with Dropbox is you need a specific invite to even see the stuff in that Dropbox. I'd prefer a system like Dropbox but where everybody can see it, even if only a few people can modify it. Subversion is a bit too technical for my tastes, having to commit and update stuff all the time isn't very artist-friendly. Any other ideas?

edit: Playtest time is two hours and ten minutes from this post.
