Honestly, this game is by far one of the top 10 games on my list. I love the concept and idea of this game, but sadly its been a year and still there has been no signs of updates or anything. I know how busy the developers are, but I hope they get this game gets some sort of update soon to indicate that this mod is still on track. I'm not saying this mod is dead, the game is good the way it is, but there are still some bugs that needs fixing and some polishing, like the weapons menu, animations, ect.

It would be awesome if developers release Beta 5 in the next coming months. I don't know, but I love this mod and if we got an update we could get more players and an epic kickass game. I just thought if anyone was thinking the same thing?

Like Valve's non-L4D release schedule, it'll be done when it's done :)

I'm totally aware that it appears that we're dead - which bugs the absolute shit out of me. So I'm planning on doing more to ensure that I'm more active on the development front, I spent a fair bit of the weekend just gone looking over the code base and figuring out what I need to fix to get us back up to a rough B4 baseline with the OB engine.

Once there, I'll release the update so the engine stuff is in place, then I can work from there - the B5 code never felt entirely stable, we had a load of weird crashes that were an arse to track down (like the crash when multiple people viewed through the same corpse) and the missing weapons if you spawned while looking through your own corpses camera. (note however, that the corpse cams were / are fucking awesome).

Good to hear Ging

We've also had a bunch of new/refurb'd maps just sitting around waiting to be put in.

Yeah, all that stuff will come through too. Even the new shiny shotgun (though without the ironsights for now)

This thread is, like, a bubbling artesian spring of pure update goodness. :D

Little things like this in a sticky thread or the front page, updated every couple months (even if it's something like 'glanced over the code today, scratched my butt' would shut up every update whiner there is. :cool:

But then Ging would waste more time writing this stuff than working on the code, he's our slave, he must work on the code as much as possible!!!

Hell jeah, I still remember some corpse beeing dragged with his face pointing upwards through the new sewers. Absolutely awesome!
And corpses pinned upside down are also a nice point of view :)
Those are some great news Ging, keep on it!

Damn it was good to read you, Ging. This is a win.

i am slightly confused as to what the code is and why it is so important :confused:

The code is a special password and it lets you create and play as a custom hidden character with whatever abilities you asign to him.

so would ging be able to import stuff from another game say... portal and then with the code be able to make the hidden shoot portals and virtually be everywhere at once?! :eek:

I doubt it, the physics engine got butchered pretty bad to make portals possible, that's why they don't work right in Gmod.

But yeah, that's basically what a mod is, you take something and change it to your liking. ;)

i honestly would not stop playing this game like EVER if they could make portals in hidden and i dont think anyone would :cool:

Portals in Hidden would just be stupid... seriously.
In a physics puzzle game, it works beautifully, but that logic does not extend to a tense semi-horror genre.
It's like those people who think that trance/techno music can apply in every situation.

i suppose you are right. but there are plenty of things from other games that would work beautifully in hidden :D

Portals in hidden? People complain enough about how quick I can be as the hidden, portals are just unnecessary!

You do realise that the reason people like this game is that it already pretty much has everything they would want in this sort of game. It just needs a little refinement, ideally an engine update that doesn't make Ging want to throttle Gabe Newell ( :p ), and some more maps (yes, I know I should give mapping a go sometime for this game :) ).

i personally would like to try it though. i think it would be kickass if the hidden could shoot two portals and then phys some one through a portal :p
