Yep, I already fixed it. You probably talked to one of the special Loners and they weren't included in the loner table.

I was finally able to get to those textures. let me apologize for not being specific on the bump map problem...it was the Bump# that had an issue along with the original texture uploaded with the mod. I had an issue opening the bump# into GIMP, so I used an alternative Bump# (which seems to work fine). One issue I've noticed with the bump# was, it was an awful dxt1 conversion. I usually try and keep textures and there bumps in the same compression format... i.e. dxt1 or 5. as for using dxt3, I really don't see the point, as in most cases dxt3 and dxt5 are usually relatively the same size, but dxt5 (imo) is a better quality. dxt 1 is fine for textures that are hardly seen or to save graphic memory vs eye candy. I uploaded some comparison screen shots along with the textures (both dxt1 and dxt5). My 3 year old has been very needy as of late, so I hope I didn't mess anything up or miss something while doing so.
Hope this helps and Thank you
the other two files you sent me worked fine with the alternate bumps.

I went through some of the Textures pertaining to the Black texture issue. I was able to find and fix one of them. The one issue with the Clear Sky skin was "act_stalker_neb2_a.dds", seems that I wasn't able to open it using GIMP, So I opened it with PainNET and re-saved it as a DXT5...loaded the game and tada. Hope that helps.
OH and BTW, The Bump(Lightmap) map for that particular Texture should be re-done, as it does not match that texture.
Thanx


Hmm, that's odd. If you don't mind I'll re-export that texture in a couple of different formats and get you to test them. The bump-map is fine though, matches the texture perfectly.

EDIT: try these - in particular see if the DXT1 version works ok: http://www.mediafire.com/?66znnt9uxmhh385

There are no plans for the military faction.
---END QUOTATION---



But eventually we can bring law & order to the zone as a soldier someday ???


---QUOTATION---

Yeah, I'm sorry too that there was no "faction action" in CoP, but I don't blame GSC for it either. They blew it with faction wars in CS so hard, that players would hang them by the balls if they even announced it again in CoP, so they had to mark the idea as "never even think of it". Many players show much hate when I even mention faction wars, saying that we've seen the feature in CS, not even concidering that it could be rewritten from scratch and work right.
---END QUOTATION---



They paid the price for releasing cs too early.I really like the fw scenario and it was a wasted potential.At least you managed to
fix something that would have been gsc´s job.The walkie talkie system
just works perfectly and every cs mod should have it cause in nearly every mod you have to wait ages for a squad to move.

Btw:how to turn off the breathing effects ?? it really starts to get on my nerves

@ RoboMook - Can you chceck those skins? Perhaps the lightmaps are did wrong. Something like the yellow freedom seva issue we had before maybe?

edit:another ctd in darkvalley.blowout started and I seeked cover in the eastern base.

Guess that answers anyone who wished to know if the blowout issue is fixed. :/

I really don't know what to do about it. I had 2 blowouts in my game so far, and everthing was fine. What's the eastern base btw? Factory lobby?
Did it CTD again after you reloaded the game?

YEAH! I got a save that had a repeatable CTD during a blowout and I think I managed to fix it. The problem was with NPC getting distracted by enemies or some smartcover action while the functions that "conclude" the whole blowout process kicked in. That's why it happend at the blowout end. I'll switch monsters offline just in case during blowouts.

@ mattthekingreborn - Thanks, glad you enjoy it.
Veteran should be rather hard. In TFW player gets a bit more damage from bullets. Bullet resistance was reduced by:

10% for Novice (90% resistance for vanilla, TFW = 80%)
20% for Stalker (80% resistance for vanilla, TFW = 60%)
20% for Veteran (60% resistance for vanilla, (TFW = 40%)
20% for Master (40% resistance for vanilla, TFW = 20%)

Basically this means, that it takes two pistol shots to kill a player without armor on master. About 6 or 7 pistol shots on novice. This was done in order to level out the fact that armors with upgrades are a bit more protective of the user now and enemy NPC resistance was greatly reduced as well. We thought that vanilla settings, which basically forced the player to empty a clip into a medium armored target in order to put it down, was a bit unrealistic, but in order to fix that we had to tune down both sides.

The pause you get when joining a faction is caused by various scripts that prepare the evironment("the Zone" you might say) for a player with new status. The length of the pause depends on your CPU, but it's normal procedure.

There are no plans for the military faction.

[EDIT]

Oh, and I'll change the "move over" position for trading loners at the Freedom base.

Try looking at the corner for a bit and waiting for him to walk off, otherwise try shooting him. If not then just reload an earlier save...
