The new build ‘Manstein’ has been online for a short while, and we hope you will all help us welcome new players and community members to the game. With leaves falling from the trees and autumn rains pounding down, it was very easy to lure Reto.KenSolo and Reto.Colding into the editing booth and they went straight to work on a new videolog showing you some of the updates in the Manstein build. Take a look here:
The new build ‘Jefferson’ is online with a number of new exciting features (and a lot of bug fixes) and we hope you will all help us welcome new players and community members to the game. Following hard on the videolog from May, we herded Reto.KenSolo and Reto.Colding into the editing booth and they went to work. Take a look here:
We decided to use this as a test case of how our own capture system works, so Reto.Ogssan dug around in the server records and found the time and place where the stunt happened. Then we grabbed the corresponding data-files and set to work.
As you might know, we record all game sessions and we can play these back when needed, this is both a nifty tool for making videos, but also a secondary part of the Anti-Grief system, as it lets us playback situations from the game and look for bugs, cheats, exploits, random griefing etc.
Reto.Colding was the man with the binary camera (and full control of the weather).
The new build ‘Irwin’ is online with a number of new exciting features (and a lot of bug fixes) and we hope you will all help us welcome new players and community members to the game. We also realized that we hadn’t made a videolog in some time, so Reto.KenSolo and Reto.Colding went to work. Take a look here:
Today and yesterday are Danish holidays (or rather Thursday is a holiday and most people then spend a vacation day on Friday for a nice long spring break).
That is why there won’t be any Intelligence Bulletin this week as most people are hiding from me (and I actually wrote this on Wednesday – just to confuse everybody).
BUT despair not!
Youtuber Fry-40 has made this short, but lovely video for your enjoyment!
So without wasting anymore letters I present you with:
Heroes & Generals Stunt Bike!
A behind the scenes animation timelapse (×12 speed) from sit pose to in game.
This time doing my contribution to the blog I fell in a nasty hole just before the goal line. With a week to go my machine decided to crash and the time for blogging was cut to a minimum.
Even with the strong head wind I decided to try and do another animation timelapse. The last one I did I really liked myself and got a lot of nice feedback. [Strong headwind is good for airplane take-off and landing, Ed.]
Now… exiting and entering airplanes is yet another task that I hadn’t had time for – and as I now have been officially bugged with it as well this is the one I chose.
I promise next time I will try and choose something different than an exit animation ;-)
Cheers – Reto.Colding
