Warsow needs YOU for the next Trailer

posted by KILLME




2014-10-29 20:03:46
Hey, I'm working at the next Warsow Trailer right now.
Since crizis wanted a fully scripted one instead of a fragmovie I wrote a little script and I need your help to realize it.

There will be a complex bomb scene which is fully scripted and I'll need 10 "actors" to record the demo.
There will also be duel, CTF and some DM but these don't need as many actors, this will focus on the bomb scene.

What you need:
-Teamspeak3 (microphone is not necessary)
-about 2-3 hours of time (and patience)
-some discipline (griefing and trolling around will just delay everything)
-bind xyz kill

Also this will not be a fragmovie, you'll have to "act" out a scripted bomb round, follow a certain route exactly and frag certain enemies at the right point of time.

Here are a few storyboard pages to get an Idea:
Page 2 (Bomb scene starts at panel 14)
Page 3


I'll host a server where I record multiPOV demos, you'll have to join it at the specified time aswell as the TS³ server. Also you'll have to chose certain player models.
If that doesn't work make sure to have these in your config:


cg_teamALPHAmodel ""
cg_teamBETAmodel ""
cg_teamPLAYERSmodel ""


The Warsow ServerIP aswell as the TS³ IP and the Date will be announced later.

Since everyone's got different time schedule please fill out this doodle:

Timezone is UTC+1

I'm confident that this trailer will be the most cinematic one yet but I'll need your help to pull it off.

-KILLME out.



KeRpaL DUEL LEAGUE (DIVISIONS)

1. KeRpaL DUEL LEAGUE

I'm happy to present you a Duel League. League will have 3* divisions with varied skill level of players signed up in each division(high, advanced, low). Players sign-up to main list, then they are put to a particular division based on their skills and experience in Duel. The main point of the league is to give less experienced/skilled players chance to compete against as much as possible equally skilled players and also provide high-skilled matches for veterans of the game. This is an experimental thing but I still have hope we won't have many walkovers and the league and stuff I'll do towards making it interesing (interviews with players, asking players for pre/after match comments, asking another warsow players about matches/groups/league opinions/having stream) will make it entertaining and both players and spectators will enjoy it.
*might be more dependant on how skillwise varied players are going to sign up. (maybe beginner too)
2. Format:

Group phase with 4 players in each*. Best two players in each group advance to Final Phase with Single Elemination brackets. All games are played in Best of Five system.

Schedule:
1st match: from 5th to 12th October.
2nd match: from 12th to 19th October.
3rd match: from 19th to 26th October.
Final phase: 2nd November - 14:30 CEST.

Sign-ups are open** from now till 5th October. CLICK ! :)

* ammount of groups will be dependant on ammount of signed up players.
** If you have problem signing up (some people get captcha error) contact me @ IRC /q KeRpaL or private message on forums.
- If you are more than 20 minutes late it means that you automatically loose. If you have problems making it, make sure to talk with the oponent to set a new date in time. If your oponent doesn't show up, report it to an admin.
- Before playing your match please contact with an admin.* (tell me the date of the match so I will try to get a stream)

3. Map pool:

| wdm2 | wdm6 | wdm10 | wdm12 | wdm14 |wdm15 | wdm17 |
Map picking: drop-drop-pick-pick-pick-pick-pick
Cointoss winner drops first.

4. Reporting scores

Players must take screenshots and save demos and send them to:
kerpaltdm@hotmail.com

5. Contact
- Idle #KeRpaL @ QuakeNet during the league for better communication.

6. Stream & Shoutcasting
TBA - I'll ask Jehar&Inane or medve for providing stream.



OBS Studio (streaming from Linux)

posted by adem




2014-09-17 15:33:59
Hello Linux guys, good news for some of you who would like to start streaming from your favorite Linux distro:
OBS Studio is a rewrite of the OBS recording and live streaming software that is currently in the early stages, but it's already very useful. It's a popular bit of kit a lot of Windows gamers use to stream their games and the rewrite OBS Studio works on Linux.

Mesa drivers currently aren't supported until we do a minor overhaul of the shader subsystem. Right now only proprietary drivers are working properly.


So let me explain you how to install it on Ubuntu/Mint. Basicly you'll need to add 2 custom repos which contain obs studio itself and fresh ffmpeg:

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:jon-severinsson/ffmpeg
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:obsproject/obs-studio
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ffmpeg obs-studio

If you want to try it on other distros, follow the guide as described here.



I'm not going to describe setting up process, since OBS studio looks and feels the same as standard OBS for Windows and there are tons of guides all other the internetz. Basicly this one should help.

But since OBS Studio is in the early stages of development, you might meet some troubles or unfortunate circumstances. I'll try to share some useful tips from my experience:

1) Bad perfomance/low fps while streaming:
- Settings - Output - Advanced Encoding Settings - x264 CPU Preset - Change preset to the faster one (like from "veryfast" to "superfast" or higher)
- Try lower settings for output video: less resolution, less bitrate.

2) Incorrect colours on Video after adding window as a source: go to the source's Properties and check "Swap red and blue"

3) Audio and video out of sync: unfortunately there is no 100% way to fix it, but i'll explain what helped me (but didn't help to my pal).
- disable any device in Settings - Audio.
- add manually as a source to the scene: Audio Output Capture (for game/desktop/mumble/skype sounds), Audio Input Capture (for microphone sounds).

4) Do not use "Start Recording", otherwise you will get really slow PC.

5) If you're going to stream arena FPS or any sort of fast game, it is better to use higher FPS for the output video, like 50 or 60, so your stream would look smoother for your viewers:
- Video - change "Common FPS Values" to "Integer...", and set the value manually.

6) If you are going to stream Warsow, you'll might need use Alt-Tab. There is a patch to make it working on Linux binaries.

Feel free to share your experience of using OBS Studio on Linux. But if you want to ask questions or report a problem, there is a proper place for it: https://obsproject.com/forum/list/linux-support.34/

P.S. Oh, and I've got a test video of my not-stream-at-all :D



Broken Servers - Admins please read here!

posted by adem




2014-06-27 08:41:14
Since we've got a lot of reports about broken textures (one, two, three), I've decided to make this topic. This problem comes from the servers which shares 1.0 modules & pk3s. It happens because of admins who installed 1.5 over 1.0.

IT MUST BE PLAIN CLEAR REINSTALLATION!

Here is a list of such servers with admins' names:

Admin: http://www.despe.de/v5/ (fixed!)
95.156.230.70:44400 [CA] FunServer by DNW
95.156.230.70:44500 [TDM] FunServer by DNW

Admin: Adhe (contacted, waiting for the fix)
162.248.92.188:44400 Tissue Box

Admin: <NA>
199.58.161.163:44400 liquorix CA / US East

Admin: <NA>
208.146.44.174:44400 warsow server

Admin: Xiodine (fixed!)
94.23.155.210:44500 wsw.tf :: Casual CTF Ranked
94.23.155.210:44420 wsw.tf :: Clan Arena wca1
94.23.155.210:44430 wsw.tf :: Clan Arena wca2
94.23.155.210:44450 wsw.tf :: Duel Arena 1
94.23.155.210:44460 wsw.tf :: Duel Arena 2

94.23.155.210:44440 wsw.tf :: Instagib
94.23.155.210:44510 wsw.tf :: Instagib Ranked
94.23.155.210:44470 wsw.tf :: Noob only Bomb & Defuse
94.23.155.210:44400 wsw.tf :: Noob only DM
94.23.155.210:44490 wsw.tf :: Noob only FFA Large
94.23.155.210:44530 wsw.tf :: Slide


- Admins, if you read it, please fix your servers by making clear reinstallation!

- Players, if you know those admins, please spam them to force to fix their servers.

- And let me know if you find any other broken servers.


P.S. Unfortunatly we, devs, can't fix it nor blacklist those servers.

Sourcecode Documentation

posted by VectorVanDoom



2013-09-26 03:35:52
EDIT: Deleted because 1.03 is out of date. no replacement, if anyone was using it i'm sorry, give doxygen wizard a try. meanwhile i learned ctags and cscope for the same use case.
---


I tried to compile Documentation with Doxygen from the 1.03 sdk
Has online code browser/search and lists callgraphs, which comes in handy at times.
e.g. you can easily see locations where console commands are added.

I spent only a few attempts at different configurations and it was some time ago. iirc i didnt manage to account for different plattform defines and hence links on different functions with equal names sometimes dont work right. [Edit: or for other reasons some handles dont get links at all and what not, its broken.]

http://vectory.cassiopeia.uberspace.de/filets/wsw

You need to go to files list to browse the source, Data Structure Index et al only account for the ui c++ files.

edit: how do you facilitate access to new code, before you are head over into the editor of your choice, anyway? i imagine debuging is a great help, too.only

Time to pump stuff up!

posted by Kimza




2013-09-05 13:41:52
I have been inactive here for a long time now, for those who don't know - I took over a Gym in May this year, so I have been working my butt off, and almost haven't had any sparetime at all. But I do have quite a bit of time to sit down and do stuff at the computer here at work when I don't have any clients to train. The problem have been the shitty performance of the computer, I can't even make simple brushes in radiant, which is why I have now ordered a new good computer so that I can map at work!

So now it's time for me to get on the boat again and finish all of my started mapping projects and then getting onto new ones.

The maps I will work on, in order:

wdm2 - 90% done
wdm10 - 65% done
wbomb4 - 70% done
wca3 - 60% done



Crafted Red Armour

Now many of you probably remember my Red Armor Cake. I've had this project on the side for a long time, a 10cm version which I spilled cola on. I've re printed it at 15cm, and built it in about 5 days time (~1 hour per day).
