Multi-game engine FTEQW 1.0

Post by Rab,d »

Hey guys/gals...
I have been searching for a game engine that I could use for this project rather than egl...or maybe find someone modding egl or something. Well, this morning I ran across this and fooled around with it a bit...it runs our dday maps aswell as our new q3 .bsp maps. It's default settings are not optimal to our game and it's clunky to navigate menu at first, fov is way off by default. But, I think with some customization of it's config files will make this a good candidate for this project and perhaps as a general client for all ddayers. :)
Check it out,

It has references to and command line parameters I would assume you can build it. In the video settings you can choose openGL or Direct3D. Look into it. :)
I have been fooling around with it. I works nice on quake 2/dday maps. Looks really nice. Auto bump mapping on all the old dday textures. :) realtime shadows is kewl...like the fan in dday1. ;) But, I can't get it to "always run" and there's a crosshair..and no weapon sounds...everything else seams to work for q2 dday maps. My dday Normandy 2 q3 .bsp maps look horrible on it. Might be settings. Needs more experimenting.

That looks fantastic. The in game editor seems very interesting as well!

It certainly does not like q3bsp for some reason though! makes all the textures funky.

Been communicating with the author and others that use this engine over at http://www.quakeone.com :) Making some great headway on setting up to use this engine. It's abilities and continued development makes it choice for us. WebGL android port, avi recording, plugins.

Are these pictures from FTEQW gameplay? Does FTEQW support Q2 DLLs?

Yes this is FTE. Just a couple problems..but yes can run current dday dll with bots also. The couple problems are big. :)
Can't get It it to "always run" cl_run 1 That kinda kills it. And issues with movement in crouch and prone positions. Gun firing sounds seem to be missing. This may be in the settings or maybe some easy fix I think in the code. This engine is definitely looking to be the one for our project. Just added a lot more work, though..lol.

Well, it's different engine, so the console commands are different too. That's why "cl_run1" is not working. Also player models in md3 format would be better I think.

If that is q3bsp how did you change the settings? all my maps show up like a disco party.. Maybe its the shaders that are doing that?

It's Q3 .bsp. I have been doing so many "trial and error"'s I can't really tell you how I got it working without that rainbow effect I know you're talking about. lol.
I had their realtime light editor working..and now that won't work again. There's not a lot of detailed info on all the parameters of this engine. And I lack the schooling to pick up on things quickly. But, i'll figure it all out soon enough. That's how I am. ;)

We are getting a lot of snow today here Charlotte, NC USA :) No out of house work for me tomorrow in this ill-prepared State. :) I'll get you more info on how to set it.

Can the SHAEF models be exported to MD3 still? They look warpy because it's MD2, but it the original model development files are still to be foun somewhere (Parts?) then they could be exported to MD3, no? I think the result will look better than MD2 anyway.

Not sure. It would be kewl to recompile them. I think out of all the original dday content...the sheaf player model is what doesn't really need replacement. The skins can be tweaked to make a diference.

You have to use the newest nightly builds. Use -basedir . +gamedir dday2 in command line.

Mirrors work, btw

Rab,d, have you tested all the functionality typical for dday. I mean the iron sights, scope views etc.? Does all the bindings and settings form .cfg are working?

I already gave the milkshape models to somebody and they can easily be exported to md3.
I posted a rigged 3dmax model too somewhere that just needs animating. This has welded and weighted verts as well, so is a lot tidier than the seperate limbs of the original.

I went and found that program that converts bsp files back to map form. As I said before the copyirght thing is there but I am open to me or others redoing mine some, retexture them with the new stuff, bezier terrain, etc if that would at least get things going to have some maps.

Boons I converted a bunch of bsp to map format and zipped them and emailed them to you.
