treqie writes "During the trial of pirate bay yesterday, a professor (Roger Wallis) took the witness stand. He told the court things that the prosecutors did not want to hear. The prosecutors then tried to discredit both him and his team's work in the area, as well as his title, it was a real spectacle. In the end, the judge asked if he wanted compensation for being there — he replied that he did not want anything, but they could send flowers to his wife. Many listening online heard, and began sending her flowers, from all over the world. As of this submission, the sum is over 40,000 SEK worth of flowers. There's even a Facebook group for it."

I can't remember where I first heard about BloodFrontier. (it may have been slashdot, not certain)
So far, I've been really enjoying it. It doesn't work as well on my slower, less powerful laptop, as Quake 3 does, but I expected that. I suppose turning off the shaders and stuff would speed it up.
On my desktop it's been really nice to play. My only complaints were that the bots were to easy to beat (and you've fixed that), that there isn't some sort of melee attack, and that if you got to close to someone you couldn't hit them (don't know it this's been fixed)
I really like your new movement code (compared to Cube/Cube 2's movement code it's a huge improvement). The only game that I've played which is as fast or faster than Bloodfrontier is Warsow.


A couple of suggestions:
  • Add a melee attack
  • Instead of androids, could the character be a cyborg maybe? Androids don't really bleed.
  • Add a box that comes up, telling you who you just fragged, like in Quake 3
  • Awards, like in Q3
  • Instead of text for things like Headshot, Slaughter, and Carnage, have icons
  • i can has quad damage?
  • If you decide to have a flashlight for the game, for gods sake attach it to the gun!

Looking forward to the next release!
