31st October GunRace V1.2 Released

Hypov8 has completed his updates for GunRace and v1.2 is now released for both Windows and Linux.

The main updates from v1.0 are:-

Fixed a bug that allowed players to get final kill with shotty
Added weaponorder 4 (will rotate between machine guns)
Added weaponorder 5 (will rotate between shotguns)
Fixed bug that allowed players to spawn with Machete
Added support for limited number of custom models - male_homer, male_alien, male_bender, male_krafty, male_mrburns, male_themask, male_soldier, female_wilma and male_drfreak.

There was no official v1.1 release as it was a lot of test versions that kept changing as more things were added and fixed.

There are full install zipfiles for both Windows and Linux which include everything you need to run a server or just connect to one as a client - server files, client files, all the GunRace maps and the KPDED2 files so you can run a public server.

You can download GunRace V1.2 Full installs from the Downloads page.

18th September GunRace V1.0 Released

GunRace v1.0 has now been released. It's just the windows version now with the Linux version to be released shortly.

The zipfile is the full install and contains the v1.0 client files, the GunRace maps, bot files and the files needed to run a server.

You can download GunRace Windows Full install from the Downloads page.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

12th September Bot Testing Completed

My previous news post was a little premature. Although GunRace was complete in itself Hypov8 was still tweaking the GunRace bots and adding bot route files for all the GunRace maps.
That is now complete and so the next thing to do is to get the Linux server files created. Once that is done everything will be placed into zip files and v1.0 of the mod released.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

24th August Finished Beta Testing

We have finished adding features, finished beta testing, fixed any bugs that were found and now GunRace is ready to be released as v1.0.

This should be soon.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

24th August Goat's Arena Map

I have done a remake of the old Frag'n'die2 map called Goat's Arena (fragndie7.bsp) which will be inlcuded with GunRace.

I have made it larger by adding side rooms, retextured the main room and added platforms to get to the top of the crates that are in the main room. I also updated the number and location of weapons and other items.

24th August GunRace Now Supports Bots

In a rush of activity, not only has a random weapon mode been implemented, but Hypov8 has now added bot support to the GunRace mod.

We just finished testing it and it works great. Soon you will be able to play GunRace 24/07 and when no one is around you can play against bots :D

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

24th August GunRace Now has 3 Weapon Modes

Gunrace now supports three weapon modes - standard mode, reverse mode and random mode.
"weaponorder" has 3 modes, 1 default, 2 reverse and 3 random.
Random is generated on every map load so every game will be different.

I have converted two more maps to Kingpin to use in the mod.

One is the Quake 1 version of the famous The Edge map and the other is a map from one of the great mappers in Quake 2. The map is called The Cake is a Lie and was made in Quake 2 by Spirit.
Spirit gave me the ok to convert his map and he liked the Kingpin version.

19th February Mod Progress

After a quite period, due to real life, work on the mod has really picked up recently.
Hypov8 has joined the team and has been working hard to get the mod to beta stage.
Hypov8 had to remake the Hud due to a bug. It still looks the same but it had to be rebuilt from scratch.

Work on the machete has been completed. Started by Goat and completed by Hypov8.
The machete is the final weapon you receive and to win the round you need to get one frag with it.

Testing screenshot


When a player receives the machete all players will see a message to alert them that someone has just gotten the machete and have almost won the round.

When the player gets the machete they also receive a bonus 100 health.
We used the machete model that was created by TiCaL but Hypov8 has heavily modifed it.

17th December HUD Completed and New Map

It has taken a while but Goat has now completed work on the Gunrace Hud. It ended up being much more difficult than anticipated but with the help of Monkey Harris and Captain Death Goat was able to work it out.
It's quite a simple looking Hud actually and shows your current weapon, what the next weapon will be and frags until the next weapon.

9th October Work is progressing

Goat has incorportated Monkey Mod 2.0 into the mod so it now features antilag, map voting and other MM 2.0 features.
Goat has also made several other advances with the code:-
Weapons and ammo don't appear in maps (health, armour and the cooling mod will remain)
The player starts with a modded pistol and after a set number of kills changes to the next weapon.
The round completes when a player has gone through the selected weapons list.

We have started testing (just me and Goat at this stage) and have had two test sessions so far.
