    Got gamedev skills?

    I also thought about it, although green room is really for things that cannot fit anywhere else and since its recruiting for a mod, then it doesnt really come under it. But your probably right, too late now. Well what we are looking for is just art for inspiration, ideas and the art for model referance. The art we are looking for is just to get a good idea of what our ideas will look like when on paper. We are hoping for the following: -Characters/Creatures -Landscapes/Archetecture -Weapons Thanks for the advice mate. Yes this is my first mod, although this is also my passion and the amount of content we have is mostly storyline and website which is pretty good for a months work after changing the entire story from the previous months work all worth the effort though. But I realise it is hard to trust people now a days but these jobs will not take long and I can assure this mod will be completed and given to the public. More people would help speed up the process and I would do this myself if I had to. But again if anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated. Cheers again guys, Africa

    you know, there is a description above =P That is the only art we have to release to show at the moment, and our modeller wanted to help by adding some content when we created the profile page. But those are two of the weapons going to be used in the game, depending how the pan out in gameplay.

    Got gamedev skills?

    Hey guys, yes indeed, I am looking for a few roles to be filled on my mod at the moment, and decided to ask the Atomican community. Anyway I am actually hoping for these roles to be filled for my mod ( http://www.moddb.com/mods/nightmare ) Conceptual Artist/s Website designer (flash preferable) I know its not much at the moment but were just trying to kick it off at the moment. If you feel you can fill one of these roles and can dedicate yourself to this project for the next month or two, we would be very happy and appreciate any help we get. /* We referring to the current team at Esoteric Game Studios. */ Anyway if you are interested please give me a PM and I will get back to you as soon as possible. Cheers again guys, Africa

    What's up with this?

    Who the hell for starters would download seven pounds over p2p =S Nobody does that. Just shout them an email try to clear things up. Or you could ignore them, but this could get you in a bit of trouble.

  7. Hey guys, I have over the last 6 months been getting a lot more people and ideas for my mod so far, but I am looking for a php/html coder for my site/s At the moment I have one domain that needs a website, which is the studio - although it would be great if the mods subdomain was also created but its not essential. I would really appreciate any help i could get on this and you can chuck it in your portfolio if you are aspiring or already are a website designer, I will give awesome feedback if you need it in future. Please pm me if you are interested Thanks again guys. Cheers, Josh 'FeRReT' van den Heever Esoteric Studios - Team Leader http://www.moddb.com/members/1337ferret

    C++, In the deep end

    Hey guys, I recently undertook the project of creating a custom mod for half-life 2 as I thought hey I can map brilliantly coding shouldn't be that hard. Sweet Jesus how I was wrong, And now I'm six feet in the shit - I tried building and It gave me problems, so i did some hard hours googling this problem and fixed the minor problems and wasted about 1.2GB of bandwidth downloading SDK's that are either outdated or will not install - I am now happily settled with Visual C++ 2005 express and have loaded the windows sdk platform 2008 bin files (lib, bin and include into a new folder called platformsdk in visual studio 8's VC folder) also added user32.lib to the linkers additional dependencies. And I am now getting these errors: Error 11 error LNK2019: unresolved external symbol __imp__MessageBoxA@16 referenced in function "enum EditorSendResult_t __cdecl Editor_SendCommand(char const *,bool)" (?Editor_SendCommand@@YA?AW4EditorSendResult_t@@PBD_N@Z) Editor_SendCommand.obj Error 12 error LNK2019: unresolved external symbol __imp__SendMessageA@16 referenced in function "enum EditorSendResult_t __cdecl Editor_SendCommand(char const *,bool)" (?Editor_SendCommand@@YA?AW4EditorSendResult_t@@PBD_N@Z) Editor_SendCommand.obj Error 13 error LNK2019: unresolved external symbol __imp__FindWindowA@8 referenced in function "enum EditorSendResult_t __cdecl Editor_SendCommand(char const *,bool)" (?Editor_SendCommand@@YA?AW4EditorSendResult_t@@PBD_N@Z) Editor_SendCommand.obj Error 14 error LNK2019: unresolved external symbol __imp__wsprintfA referenced in function "public: virtual bool __thiscall CRegistry::DirectInit(char const *)" (?DirectInit@CRegistry@@UAE_NPBD@Z) registry.obj Error 15 fatal error LNK1120: 4 unresolved externals Release HL2/server.dll Now What I have read up, It seems that error LNK1120 would have something to do with the fact that error LNK2019 was not resolved - And I am truly and awfully lost - this is all clean and virgin .cpp files here. I really don't know what I am doing wrong and am open to any suggestions, so If you have any Idea what the hell is going on here please let me know guys, I would really appreciate it as I am working on this by myself =/ If you could help out at all in modding I would also appreciate that. Cheers guys - I am a newbie to programming and have jumped right into the big boys side of the pool and I'm drowning here so if anyone could lend me a hand I would really appreciate it eh. Africa

Please guys, if you can help I would greatly appreciate it =P Cheers Africa
  13. Well try connecting up to it, get into cmd and type arp -a then if you see an ip unkown on your network type: net send * heycloseupyourwirelessoremailmeblahblahspalunkaanus if you want leave the * as it will act as a wildcard and send message to everyone on network... Wait this will only work if they have messaging enabled... damn... Or you could use ethereal and sniff the packets and find out their msn or aim w/e if your that patient
