xx Mechstorm HDP for Vengeance
« Thread started on: Jun 29th, 2010, 11:00am »

Hello WPPC.

This is HKP / Mack... good to see you all.

We are almost finished with the HDP V2.0

I need a couple of determined volunteers who are not afraid of grunt work and understand a little about the "extractor" ... or know a good deal about computers... or will try real hard.

I will need that person to have access to MSN or Yahoo
or something that allows online communication in real time.

The person must sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement... promising not to release any content. This will include their real name.

IF you are that someone... or just want to cheer us on.
Please visit www.mechstorm.com/forum

Due to SPAM, the registration process is a little more difficult. You need to Register, then POST a request to join.
Please include who you are, and what you want, so I know what group to put you in when you join.

Also... I need some basic information.

Perhaps a list of the patches for Vengeance with Links to obtain those patches.

To be honest, I am not even sure my Vengeance will work.

(which is another reason why I need a good bit of help getting you some HDP content...)

OK folks.

great to see you, and looking forward to hearing from you.

PS.... if you WERE registered at mechstorm, but have not posted in a while, try posting.
If you cannot, then you might have to re-register... or send me a PM to fix your account.
If you Cannot do any of those things (blocked for some reason)... then send Email to CCr_MACK@hotmail.com

(copy pasta from Mechstorm post)

Mack,

Just saw your post on WPPC about the Veng HDP, I would be happy to assist!

I am pretty savy with the ol machine (I am a programmer..of sorts) and know my way around the game pretty well.

I have all the links and current patches for Venge PR3.

Do you need a map and terrain list?

You can reach me on MSN at YardbirdTX@hotmail.com

cool

OK FOLKS....Here is a sneak peak just for WPPC!

We got the first mech textures to run and we connected to the SoE server to validate.

More to come soon!



Mech on the left is the original Dashi in the highest setting in Veng, the mech on the right is the NEW High Def Dashi

Notice the guns, missile rack and plates with rivets!

User Image


Here is a shot in action! NOTICE THE LEG ACTUATORS!

User Image


Also..looks like we will be able to use 64x64 pixel decals as well!

another improvement we are working on is to get rid of the invisible walls that protect folks hiding in destroyed buildings.

No promises yet...just stuff in the works.

We just thought you would like to see that this patch is a reality and progress is happening!



More to come soon.

Falls in floor dead*! Jumps back up* ZOMG! That is some masterful work guys! I don't really know what to say besides its so beautiful. This is everything a Venge player could ask for!

I really like the idea of no one can hide anymore..even though its no where near the problem it use to be. It would be great that there is a zero tolerance effect in the works. smiley

Please keep us updated every chance you get!

Heya Guys,

Just a small note, the "walk thru walls and inviso walls" might NOT be an achievable fix.

The good news is that We successfully tested some HDP content on the WPPC server. In game, success has been achieved with many of the in game texture improvements.
YardBird has permission to post screenshots here.

The bad news:
There are some incompatible replacements.

So, right now, testing is an ongoing process until the incompatible pieces can be isolated.

Of course,
If you guys want to assist, or give some cheers, feel free to drop by www.mechstorm.com/forum

This looks AMAZING!!! I can't believe how far you guys have came! HKP! Yard! You guys are my heroes! I can't tell you how excited I am at the chance of being able to use these! This will be such a welcome to the community! This game is now about 10 years old.... it is high time it had a face lift! I just never expected it to actually happen! Thank you, guys. You dudes at mechstorm are incredible!
cool cool cool cool cool cool cool cool cool cool cool cool cool cool cool cool cool cool


About fixing the bugs? I vote this:
Just do a strictly cosmetic patch of Venge, a true HD patch. I know it might be more trouble but if you really wanted to do a true bug fixing patch - we should worry about that at a later date. Lets advertise the heck out of this HD Patch for a while and that should give you guys time to work on a bug fixing patch. I would love a bug fixing patch but we need folks to know about it for awhile and rally the troops. Anyway, thats a later convo. Thank you guys again for working on this... I really, can not WAIT!

This is REVOLUTIONARY! UNBELIEVABLE! MIND BLOWING! you know...just until here recently, in the past few months, I haven't even had the privilege to have my graphic settings turned to high! I feel like truly, our ship has come in! Venge is getting a chance to look its best, and its all because of you guys! Thank you so much Yardbird and HKP-Mack! You guys let us know when we can give it a whirl! I would love to be a guinea pig!

one of the things you might notice is the decals....they look much more realistic,,,in actuality they are 4 times more resolution than before!

So if ya have old decals..time to update those old tired decals!

if ya need a program to do that..i have a open source one that works great!..let me know!

@Yardbird:
In the meantime, I downloaded the HD patch for Veng and tried to install. As expected, the HD patch doesn't like my German game version. Patching aborts with some error message, so no chance...

I would either need an English Veng version or the Mechstorm folks would have to create a separate HD patch for German Veng version, which won't happen as far as I know.

Anyway, new HD Veng graphics are really impressive, great job Mechstorm!
