Funny! Since I noticed this thread only today, I took it for serious first. :)

Since it's no longer April 1 (at least not in any parts of the world that matter) I've changed the topic title.

Glad you guys liked it :)

Quadrupled the duration of a lollerskate charge.
Hey, now thats something that should have been from start, either that or make Testkon have lollersakes on permanent.



I have a problem that might need sorting on TNM... Trestkon goes into sewers, has uranium sticks in bhis person, gets bloody by beating up people and aliens with tools. Gyou should lose 10/hp a second unless you visit a medbot and go into water and get healed and cleaned off. Also, poor Trest, no food much, starvation might be another important issue, lol.
Must now combine a dirty rag with chemicals and alcohol to create molotov cocktails. Rags can be looted from the corpses of bums and board guests.
You forgot their dirty underwear too, use that and the molotov instantly explodes bwhen lit.
We were unable to fix all the desktop crashes caused by the DXOgg player, but as a quick solution, we've converted all tracks into 8-bit midi files. This also decreases the size of the install by 200 mb.
One word...SWEET!
Increased the rate of damage ShadowCode causes to players while in their head to allow only fifteen seconds for players to find a computer console.
lol, 15 seconds! Too long if you ask me. 5 seconds is even a bit much, but eh, this is fine improvement.

One last thing... there is a problem, if you complete game with saving, it won't end correctly. Playing until your eyes bleed is the only way to get the correct ending to play as normal. Now back on to being serious. Sorry I missed this yesterday, had my laugh for today.

I would have also turned wireframes on so people could see the amount of time and detail that is in the level geometry and models. Other than that, this patch sounds great. Especially the aqualung fix :D

Is your graphics card good or do you have enough system memory to run the cinematic? I had a problem with game crashing when a cinematic played a few times, but I relaised I did not have enough free RAM.

You didn't have enough free RAM to run an in-game cutscene!? How does that make sense? Surely if you have enough RAM to play the game, you have enough RAM to watch the cutscene? It's not like it's pre-rendered.

It was just a thought, but your right. My PC has enough RAM and graphics to run the game, but it still randomly crashes with General Protection faults for no reason.

We're done adding stuff to TNM. You'll have to side with WorldCorp if you want a romance, and even then, it's fairly underplayed.

Never heard of it.

Don't be so modest! You guys did an awesome job with the Scara romance-subplot!
Can somebody tell me how I can get a custom avatar?
Oh wait, I already got one...

- Implemented the big red quest arrow from BioShock at the top of the screen to avoid confusion.
But it is yellow!

Yes my necromancy skill is coming along quite nicely, thanks for asking

Wow, I should play through again. I thought it was underplayed, but occasionally explicit (eg. Scara's "Trescock"), though I didn't pay much attention after that.
