Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

There was an Half-Life mod that was really harsh, back in the day.

The harsh-browns are served up once again.

FIrearms: Source is out

The above download is version 1.0, so here's the initial Taste of The Flavors of Shooting Dudes.

Them dudes put in four gameplay modes, eight maps and thirty-ish weapons, along with different classes. There's a harsh limb-based damage system too!

    some of the earlier videos of this in the apparently two year testing process looked sketchy

    this however, looks pretty hot:

    I don't get it.

    man, my memories of the original firearms are not the fondest

    lots of getting blown up for no reason, dying from mortars for no reason, having your parachute not deploy, getting stuck in walls, getting sniped through walls...

    I've been playing this since Friday, it's a little rough and buggy right now but it can be a helluva lot of fun when you get used to it.

    Just remember:
    -Full heavy armour is basically god mode right now
    -Turn down or off smoke particle effects to avoid a terrible framerate problem it produces
    -Restarting steam sometimes fixes GUI/HUD glitches
    -The headshot multiplier is only 2x and most of the guns are a little underpowered combined with the strong amour and self/group-healing makes killing hard when the two teams get into a standoff or pileup around specific places on the maps

    I played the original so much.

    It was pretty much one of the first mods I ever downloaded.

    Good times were had.

    Do people still lie on the ground wounded, and moaning?

    [EDIT] And oh shit! Is the battlecry still in?

    AND PARACHUTING?

    list of things getting changed next patch:
    Spoiler:

    less armor overall, more damage across the board due to increased multipliers (x3 for head now).

    still not a fan of the maps. they should have just copypasted the ones from FA they knew worked. the objective areas are anything but obvious now and certainly aren't chokepoints either, not really giving any incentive or reason to go for them

    - Bandage key doesn't set IFAK as last weapon

    this is a godsend addition right here, especially for multi weapon setups

    - Fixed instance where last player on 0 reins team disconnects and doesn't end the game

    actually crashed a full server with this one on release day

    Also on most of the scoped weapons if you hold down the right mouse button it will go into a weird offcenter down the rail view that is totally useless and when you release go into a weaponless FOV for a few seconds before popping back to normal, it apparently has something to do with additions in RC1.1.

    That changelist makes me feel happy

    Thus far I've had too many moments where I've opened up on a guy, covered the walls in blood, only to have him blow me away

    But I've crept up on and knifed a fair few guys in the back, which is always nice

    More games need to take a leaf out of TF2's book and just have indicators pointing out where the heck you're meant to be headed

    Some of the maps are... unintuitively laid out, to put it politely

    Definitely a fan of the icons your teammates get above their heads (fuck the naysayers, realism can go to hell if it has a negative impact on enjoyment)

    This crashes a lot too

    And I should reiterate how bad I am

    The AK-47, medium armor, grenades, and bandages seems to sorta work though (i killed 3 dudes)

    this has the potential to be the source equivalent of red orchestra (not in terms of scope)

    i especially like the ranking up system being directly tied to the perks
