How big will the download be you think? Say a ball park figure, if you can? If it is a huge download will you consider a good way to split the game up for download? This has been brought up a lot with other free games / modifications.

At the current state I dont think this is measureable but Im sure we will try and get it as low as possible. Not over 150 MB I hope.

yeah we are going to keep the filesize as low as possible.

This means, no additional textures which arent used in actual maps.
Although there will be an SDK link so people who want todo new maps can download the 300 mb archive. Good maps which receive the status "official" will be autodownloaded (including the not previously used textures) by each player via the autoupdater.

We might also seperatly release a highdefinition version with additional bumpmaps, higher resolution textures etc.

It will all depend on the final size of the game

Just to be clear, the high definition pack will be released as a separate pack with the launch of the game, at the same time?

Since first alpha is going out to the team this week (I hope I was allowed to say that) the first beta will most likely take another 2-3 months, at least. I hear from Ghost that the game is 70% done though but I dont trust that dude, Ive heard from reliable sources that he never wears anything but black and only leaves the house at nights. His corner teeth are pointy aswell.

lol az,

well it really depends on how quick everything goes on, there are quiet lots of factors like reallife which have an important impact on a possible release date. But we aim for a public release by the end of the first half of this year.

Although there is going to be a closed beta before the release (early board members (like you), are going to be prefered over other random guys signing up for the closed beta when its announced ;)

After all you have to remember that we are going to need some time to balance the weapon values out.

I would be pleasantly surprised if you guys managed to keep the download under 150 MB. Most good FPS MODS are considerable larger than that, let alone stand-alone games.

Yeah dont listen to azelito ;)
We are going to keep it as small as possible (as i said), but I wont give you any estimate now.

What is closed-beta?


When we think that we got a more or less completed beta done, we are going todo a closed beta test (you have to get invited to join) to check balancing issues and possible bugs etc.

Yea, I dont know what I was thinking when I wrote that. Sadly, I cant blame drinking.
