Have you ever wondered what's behind those huge doors in Panalesh?

Lovely, would have loved to see a real UT-movie, but not even the story was created by them. :sad:


But it's somehow nice to compare: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GnE64DbnUzY

:biggrin:

most excellent Core. Again. :)

fluffy_bunnies 10-18-2009 11:13 AM

You are really great with this!! The second fantastic video in a month. Great job, TPC!!

Necromancer 10-18-2009 11:27 AM

Nicely done!

Better than some real movie trailers I have seen lately...

Mr.Crow 10-18-2009 12:07 PM

Awesome
 
TPC your videos are some of the best ever seen. Keep em comin

Bastard 10-18-2009 12:36 PM

Have to say, very nicely done again Core. You have a true talent.

Pi 10-18-2009 12:59 PM

You've got to be freakin kidding me- that .... was ..... awesome...

Anonymous[Lolz] 10-18-2009 01:56 PM

That was awesome! You should make a real movie on UT, then I would microwave a batch of popcorn for omni :biggrin:

:obscene-smiley-1021, probably not going to happen, and here's why: Unreal AI scripting is about as enjoyable as a night in Guantanamo. Most of the shots in this video are less than 5 seconds long, given the nature of the original trailer, but recreating took me anywhere from 15 minutes to several hours in some cases. The tentacle unfolding scene took me 10 hours to do - not because it was overly complicated, but because so many monsters on the screen caused a number of problems, among other things:

-Sometimes the AI scripts simply wouldn't fire
-Sometimes the game would crash (this actually happened about every other run)
-Sometimes the tentacle animation would play too fast, skipping frames (what the FUCK)
-Sometimes the tentacle animation wouldn't play at all
-AI scripts would ignore their "waitforevent" condition and fire randomly

That scene by itself almost made me toss the computer through a plate glass window. Something about the size of Panalesh and the number of pawns made the game freak out and become too unpredictable.

Also, there's no way to make a bot shoot things. "ShootTarget" simply does not work. "ShootWeapon" only works with projectile weapons. The weapon projectiles in the video were created with scripted triggers.

I could go on, but suffice it to say, I think I'm done with Unreal videos that involve a lot of scripting.

Wow, another awesome vid - I loved seeing that Goliath flying through the air

I translate from a German mapper-forum, they got it to work with ShootTarget:

I already set up everything in the UnrealScriptedSequence, but the bot only walks to the target and does nothing. The attached pictures should explain it. The two pathnodes have the tags "Start" and "Ziel" [means "Goal"]

But actually it should always take the first firemode in case of a wrong input.

Try:
- to replace the WaitForEvent with WaitForTimer.
- to add an additional DisplayMessage to make sure that it has been activeted.
- a GotoAction at the end.
- to make sure that the bot has a weapon actually.
Here is mine, the shooting works with that, but somehow I am not clever enough to enter the firemode correctly.

I saw some similar guides, I even copy/pasted a script from the ONS "tutorial" map (remember that thing?). In the end I used scripted triggers because they just worked.

And, to get bots to shoot while running I'd probably need to whip up something in UScript. In this case I ended up not having enough time to do that. I finished the video and posted in on Youtube about an hour before the Sony Vegas 30-day trial ran out.

Not to spam... after using NLE programs like Adobe Audition for years, Sony Vegas just made sense. When I get some income again I'll be buying the full version. Premiere, I'm leaving you.

My next project will be done in Crysis at full 1080p. 8000 barrel video, I'm comin' for you.

*mega bump*

This video is so awesome. I was browsing old threads and had to bump it.

YEAAAHHHHHHHHHH 10-07-2016 09:35 PM

Ha!

Wait is that an official ad or is that his creation?

Also still waiting on an ONS map that has a few unbiased monsters roaming

hardspike 10-07-2016 11:01 PM

That was cool. Too bad he's only had 1000 views in so many years. That's a real work of art and I see so much other trash on Youtube that took minutes to produce.

Still love TPC's video loaded up with barrels on Dria.

Colbye 10-08-2016 02:57 AM

Love it!
