  • I've been looking on the server list, waiting for someone to host, but no one ever has this gamemode playing. Even when I STARTED a server for about upwards of 3 to 4 hours, no one came on it. Can someone please pick this gamemode up and use it on their server???

  • Looks interesting, I will test this for a couple hours on my 24/7 dedicated server.

In the next version (coming very soon) , these problems should be adressed. I recommand you to try it then. EDIT : I think the release is for tomorow , altought I'm not totally sure of it. This will be a shiny release. With all majors problems fixed.

  • IckyLevel: [img]http://img358.imageshack.us/img358/9005/wc3scrnshot062107144558yi3.jpg[/img] Original map of Parasite I was thinking for a map like.. making the planet Mars, And a spacebase maybe like.. 100 - 200 meter away from it, And the base has like.. 4 one-man ships (escape pods) wich you can flee to mars with it. If you want more info about the parasite map of WC3, contact me with a PM i played that map like.. 1 trillion times.

  • [b] Parasite version 0.2 is out ! [/b] From what I have tested , the auto dl is working with all content and the new round system allow the easy creation of server for everyone. Note that to have a map switch (even if there is only one map for the moment since para_mars needs to be ported to this version) you must edit the maxround value in the init.lua file (its set to 666 by default). I created Parasite getting inspirated from the war3 map , but it's only an inspiration , the two things are completely different. You can't really compare RTS and FPS.

  • We could host it again if the content relaly is fixed, until there's a new version of JE we need something a little more unplayed.

  • I just seen a server using para_mars. Only para_spaceship V4 is working with this version ! If you use an another map weapons won't spawn at the beginning of each round. So there won't be any weapons. EDIT : Bug found : An human get an alien weapon at the choice. I'll be fixing it (hopefully). i may have fixed it , but before an hotfix i would like to test. [b]Edit:[/b] New update . Not tested online but it can't add new bugs. New melee system (easier to hit). The possibility for the dual alien bug of having been fixed.
  • Avatar of Ickylevel
  • New update again. Easier to hit as alien and the use of info_player_deathmatch should solve stucking problems.

  • You NEED to add lag compensation to both the firearms and the melee attacks of this gamemode, to make combat sharper and better. Details about how can be found here: [url]http://forums.facepunchstudios.com/showthread.php?t=286697[/url] . Right now, it's hell trying to attack anyone if your ping is above 100.
  • Avatar of Ickylevel
  • Thanks. NEW VERSION : In the first minute , players can kill eachtother without respawning as alien or in the jail. Also , the lag compensation thing.
  • I think because this is a game mode based on The Thing you should have a blood hypo test that you could use on players to see if they are human or alien. One thing is that they are rare to find there not just lying on the ground everywhere.

  • You have to make zombies unable to attack 'true' aliens - or, remove zombies all together. They ruin the atmosphere.
  • Can you make chat like, local? Non-global chat? Because it's really damn annoying when people yell "HEY, THAT GUY IS THE PARASITE!" Yea.

  • Working on the maps , adding a new feature , the robot : A player reprogrammable both by aliens and humans. As an example of the changes being made to the map : Lasers traps. An airduct providing a way to escape for players cornered at the shower...

  • We need maps like this [url]http://forums.facepunchstudios.com/showthread.php?t=264102[/url] to be adaptated to Parasite (wich can be done fast). Unfortunately , makers won't. I wish all maps were open source , since Lua code is. [b]Edit:[/b] No , finally , this map don't fit with parasite's gameplay , but the concept of fast map adaptating still stand.
