    Is this a mod, or a full game?

    If it's a mod, I'll give it a shot.

    It's a mod. If you have a game that gives access to the Source SDK, you can head over to Steam and download it.

    Honestly, despite what everyone says about 'steep learning curve etc etc cake', the only problem you're going to have is with the maps and the objectives (something only solvable by experience), rather than with the complexities of the game, provided you read the Playing Guide mathingy in the OP.

    Believe me, it'll help a lot.

    Apologies for double post.

    Decking is super hard without knowing the maps.

    I used to deck quite a bit before v1, and now I don't dare touch the JIPs. The stuff they added scares me. Too many buttons to push on securities and stuff.

  • AntithesisAntithesis Registered User regular
    edited February 2009
    Maybe it's just because I know the maps pretty thoroughly by now, but decking seems a lot easier. Anyone else think it's easier to hit other deckers with low screen resolutions?

  • Mustachio JonesMustachio Jones Registered User regular
    edited February 2009
    By virtue of the way hitscan works, I think it's a whole lot easier.

    I only remember some of the maps to deck effectively, but I just feel like I'm clogging up a slot decking on maps I don't know when I could be popping heads with my MK.

    The rocket launcher sucks now :( . Can't one hit a light anymore and the secondary is so sensitive at first that you end up ramming it into a teammate/wall instantly, and so unresponsive after a couple seconds its useless.

  • Mustachio JonesMustachio Jones Registered User regular
    edited February 2009
    I'd say that they need to buff the rocket launcher just a little bit, and nerf the minigun just a little bit.

    and find some way to make the tesla rifle not so fucking annoying.

    I'm starting to love the basilisk. I dunno if the secondary actually does much damage, but it's so fun to use.

  • Mustachio JonesMustachio Jones Registered User regular
    edited February 2009
    I've been on the receiving end of that ball of joy, and it does a pretty nice amount of damage.

  • jothkijothki Registered User regular
    edited February 2009
    I just played a round in that map with the missile, and the basilisk secondary has the perfect arc for being able to shoot across the missile room. It feels so good standing in near perfect cover hearing a stream of bleeps as you lob grenade things across the center.

    The basilisk is awesome. I love coming around corners with sound suppressor on and destroying unsuspecting people in a hail of ball-things and basilisk shots.

    I fell in love with the Ion Cannon last night. Never really was a fan before. It is a horrible sniper weapon, but I was defending the first JIP in Broadcast and vaporized 4 people in a row right as they walked in to the room. :)

    The Ion Cannon is not a sniper rifle.

    Close range, it does the same damage as the fist, which is, I think, 120 damage.

    At long range, is does like, 90 or 60, im not sure.

    yeah, but it has that zoom function as a secondary, which makes a lot of people think it is.

    This is the second time valve screwed the dystopia team over with a patch. When the game first came out, the population was HUUUGE, and 2 weeks later a source engine update broke the game, made it crash constantly, and cut framerates down to about 20%.

    A week or 2 later, it was fixed, but the community never got bigger.


    FASTFORWARD TO NOW. Dys gets released on steam, another seemingly pointless patch comes, and the game breaks.

    Because valve should use the mod community coding practices to dictate the release of patches that effect games that people have paid for.

    The difference this time was the patch was from the Dystopian team. They released it to fix some crashing problems but they also changed the app id, for some reason this ended up breaking the game. That's not to say Valve can't do anything since it looks like they have to do an update on their end to get it to register, it just looks like their may have been some miscommunication when they sent the patch to valve.

    When I said "broke" what I really ment was"can't find master server". Their is a simple hot fix to this problem
    Create an empty text file named steam.inf and move it into
    ...\Steam\steamapps\<accname>\dystopia\Dystopia\
    The game itself will run fine you will just need that to actually play online.

    Team Ninja beat you by a few years. I am confident this was the first documented occurrence of dual katanas in history.

    Also what they beat you with were massive jiggling breasts.
