  1. Try it in the 32 bit version. The plugin wasn't written with x64 applications in mind.
  2. Production is currently suspended for break with some new (to me) games that I purchased with Steam's summer sale. I'll resume in a week or so but don't expect too many updates posted here. I don't want to reveal too much yet.
  3. Don't sell yourself short.. Those textures aren't as bad as you think they are.
  4. There will be multiple versions. Thanks for all of the compliments and encouragement.
  5. Here's the weekend update... Got a lot done this week due to having some vacation time. Progress will slow down after this week. All of the buildings in the compound have been roughed in-they still need a lot of detail work to flesh them out. Here are some max renders: And finally some in game shots: Hope you enjoy!
  6. Big weekend here. I got a lot done and here are some screenshots First on the list are 2 re-textures of 2 more specialists. These are a combination of WitchDokta's tropentarn skins, an arid desert patch for the German flag, and some hand painted grass stains. Nigel is wearing a combination of WitchDokta's skins, an arid desert Union Jack patch, and some of the newer Hyde Development Pencott camo pants. Dieter Munz: Nigel Tunney: This wraps up re-skinning specialists. I plan to replace Jodit with one of Wombat's Pakistani characters. Mapping progress: Most of the work was done today. This is what the map looked like last night: Close up of a door with a window. (Tested in game and it is fully functional!!!): Today: Building on the southern area of the compound: Distant shot: This one is quite a common angle to see from news sources: A more recent close up shot: Bird's eye view facing NW: All of the interior mesh is laid out on the smaller buildings. Most of it still needs texturing Frame work for the main building in the compound has been defined: I'll be busy with my daughter's graduation next Friday and Saturday so don't expect an update until the weekend ending in 12 June 2011. Enjoy!
  7. Yeah, I heard about this at work the other day. I just shook my head. I'd hate to think that I'd have to alter my mod for fear of being sued by Disney for trademark infringement.
  8. It's ironic how I was just chatting with Rocky about this very subject the other day. It's true that the gameplay is superb, but for me it was always about the ease of access to modding as my favorite aspect. The limitations (of the engine) taught me how to think outside of the box and learn more about the PC than any other game before or since.
  9. 2011 has been the best year in a long time for games. Shogun 2: Total War Crysis 2 The Witcher 2 Dragon Age II Max Payne 3 is coming soon
  10. .qob is the 3d model format. .gun is the specifications file for how it functions in game.
  11. Here is a progress report. Tinker is going to assist in mission scripting and anything else the two of us can think of, Hammer is going to model a few vehicles, & Wombat50 is going to assist in character skinning and map textures. I reskinned a couple of specialists, Scott Ibrahim & Lindy Cohen. I used some skins from WitchDr. and modified them with bits and pieces from the stuff BjB had uploaded. Scott: Lindy: The courtyard LZ area is mostly finished now: Close Up: Scott & Lindy in game: Approximate view of the same close up in game: An old truck from Frosbite - not sure if it will make it into the final mod. That's it for now. Got a 3 day weekend coming up next weekend; hopefully I will make a lot of progress.
  12. Think of it like an index or table of contents so your operating system knows where to find things.
  13. I agree that there are a lot of interesting scenarios to develop here. What if Pakistan got involved? Due to the proximity of the military base this could have been a much, much more challenging. What if there were more defenders at the compound? Things had the potential to get real ugly fast...
  14. I followed the mission on 01 May 11 by USN Seals into Pakistan with great interest. It sparked my creative juices to make a map and mission based on this event. I have some very early alpha images of the map. I only started to work on it yesterday and spent most of the day today fiddling with textures so I could do a proper export. Experienced a 2 hour hiccup with the darkmaps not being generated correctly but I managed to figure it out eventually. It has been a long time since I've worked in 3ds max or on a GR project for that matter so it is going to be a slow process. Here is a render of the walls surrounding the compound: Most of the detail will be centered on this area. The compound is surrounded by mostly farmland and the most recent overhead view that I have is from google earth: The above image depicts a 600 square meter area in the immediate vicinity. Due to the limitations of the game the command map will only display 400 square meters and the playing area will be considerably smaller. Looking through the main gate: Facing SW outside the compound: These are very early shots in the map development and the textures/mesh is subject to modification. I don't have an ETA on this project but am hoping to have the map complete by the end of summer. I'd like to develop skins for both friendlies and enemies. If there is anyone out there that would like to lend a hand with things either post here or send me a PM.
  15. The registry values for steam installs look to be encrypted on my rig but I'm not sure. I've got a multiple hard drive rig. XP is installed on one of the hard drives and Windows 7 on the other. I do not have Steam installed on the same OS as GR. The registry path in windows 7 for steam is: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Valve\Steam\Apps All of the nested directories are numbered. I only have 10 games on Steam and there are a whole slew of numbered folders here. IIRC Don set this up to pick up where GR is installed through your windows registry. Steam does something differently than the normal windows installer is my guess.
  16. My eye caught this thread yesterday and sent DonMiguel a PM on facebook. I don't know what, if anything, can be done to help you guys on Steam. We'll just have to wait and see.

    Alpha Mod

    Thanks for the fast replies gents!

    Alpha Mod

    The link in the downloads section is dead. Anyone know where else this might be hosted?
  19. Sleeper and I are going to be playing some co op tonight. Any one else here is welcome to join us. Start time will be sometime between 2200-2300 GMT and will last for 5-6 hours. The mods we'll be playing with today are: GR DS IT Knight Fork Africa Burning I'll be on xfire: oso428 Send me a PM for the IP address
  20. I don't think anyone ever took the time to compile a list of like this. If there isn't a website for the mod the only other place I could recommend looking into would be the read me file that is usually in each individual mod directory.
  21. I never made a Rainbow Six character pack. You might have Bajabravo's work. I know he made some a while back.
  22. I'm not sure what 'trr' means but it sounds like you need to post for help in the mission scripting section. In the meantime you might want to download these 2 documents and read them: Basic IGOR Guide Advanced IGOR Guide You'll need acrobat reader to view the files and something that can extract a zip file.
  23. Actually it can be done with a mod and quite easily. All you need to do is include instructions on installation. Providing a back up of the original xml file as a courtesy for users that want to disable it.
