Re: New forum style to try out & server upgrade

That does not work. I'll keep looking.

Re: image uploading policy on the forum

Hi yes you can upload images to the site on the attachments tab. File sizes are limited to 1mb and images can be no more than 1280x1024 otherwise they will be displayed as a text link instead. I have a 1TB per month bandwidth allowance on the server's internet connection and we hit nowhere near 10% ...

Re: Idea of Drakan based Fan Movie/Drakan Animated Movie

But I more or less immediately dismissed the idea of a live-action movie as not very feasible - at least not with the available resources and manpower. It'd take a pretty solid group of hardcore fans to successfully pull that off; I'd guess 6-8 people at the very least, and that's being optimistic....

Re: The worst street in the world?

It's getting worse - Bradford is the UK crime capital outside of London but Huddersfield used to be decent. In the last 5 years or so it's getting to be a right shit hole. Things came to a head when the police shot and killed a drug dealer when he aimed his gun at them when they got tipped off he wa...

Re: The worst street in the world?

That'd make a decent setpiece for a movie based on the Fallout games :D And as for the streets - we still have plenty of truly nasty ones, just not in the way you depicted. No, those are far worse - in that to an outsider, they look reasonably normal, but an outsider walking there has a very high c...

Re: Fan Art

Good point. I did see that promo image on ebay a long time back. Wish I could have bought it but it was in the US and the seller wouldn't ship abroad.

The worst street in the world?

I was looking through youtube the other day and came across a movie based on the characters "The Fat Slags" from the viz comic (a rude but yet funny adult comic that's been going for years) the movie is known as the worst UK movie ever made so I had to watch it just for laughs. There's no porn in it...

Re: Fan Art

It's definitely an improvement but it looks a little dark; the original does look washed out but that was due to the scanner used.

Here's another edited version viewtopic.php?f=20&t=4010

Re: If anyone's interested, this is the kind of designing I get paid to do

Looks very interesting; we do a lot of our fabrication in house but the most complex things we get done by a local engineering company that has laser cutters etc. A desktop milling machine like yours would be ideal for some of the smaller things we build. We did look into buying something but for th...

Re: The sun in Drakan

Ah yeah I did get that mixed up. The game must render at a rate of 30 / 25fps interlaced as only 240 / 288 lines are being rendered at once. These are combined for the 60 / 50hz scan rate of the display. A progressive display has to display the full 480 etc lines per frame so if the console can't ke...

Re: The sun in Drakan

Any idea what size textures are in Drakan: TAG? Most in Drakan: OOTF are 64x64, the ones for the moon and certain objects are larger. Drivers for Voodoo 2 card have auto-mipmapping option for DIrect3D apps, which make Drakan blurry. Saw that while playing with PCem. I can't confirm as I can't open ...

Re: The sun in Drakan

The demo I have (on the 1999 CD of PC Zone magazine) is the same as the finished game. There may have been earlier builds of the demo out there but I'm not aware of them. Even on modern hardware the game runs like a slideshow when increasing draw distance to the maximum and disabling the fog. Guess ...

Re: The sun in Drakan

Yeah, come to think about it, no I don't remember seeing it. I've loaded up a few savegames and yeah, no sun. However the very old screenshots of the pre-release versions look very different to the release version of the game. Wartock canyons was originally a sunny level and I believe the fog & rain...

Re: Jump attack input (skullsplitter) not working?

For my new rig, I had first bought a Creative Audigy FX (PCIe), because well, it's Creative, right? What can go wrong? Oooops... Not only does it use the dreaded Realtek chip, but there are no drivers for it for XP (despite my pre-purchase research indicating that there should be). I did somehow ma...
