August 09 Update - August Cooldown

Postby urinal-cake » Mon Aug 10, 2009 7:58 pm

I think I speak for everyone on the team, when I say we would absolutely love to show you what we have all been working on, but alas, it comes in time. There is never any harm in a quick update for you guys in the meantime, right?

This month we made some minor changes to our public pages. You will notice that we now have a Facebook social box on the lower right side of our news page. Now all the fans of Dystopia who are Facebook users can join this group and receive the most critical updates and announcements when they happen, as well as get clued in to when Dystopia events occur. The first event we will be trying out is the return of the "Screenshot of the Week" contest! Submit a screenshot now at our Facebook page, and get featured in our notes and media gallery! Hurry up and get your screenshots in, it won't be happening long!

Keep your eye out for some other great stuff including upcoming Dystopia Global League events to listen or partake in.

Speaking of the DGL, some of you may of listened in on their recent Season 2 finals match. Both Kaya and WhyHeavies played an intense match that is worth any Dystopia fan's time! Special thanks goes out to all of the folks over at the DGL and commentators, Whiteknight, Deathy and Unaco! Check out the videos separated and a short writeup here, or check it out below!

We would like to show everyone a recent update made to the Dystopia Stats system. Changes to the level heat maps were made to offer a better interface and allow for higher resolution pictures . These changes can be viewed now by Supporters by going here and clicking the 'Heatmap' tab at the top. Using the popular Google Maps API you can now zoom in to the much larger pictures of maps, view high density death areas, ammo dispensers, spawn pads, pictures of the map itself using the viewer and more!

Also, since the last update, our friends over at NeoTokyo made an exciting release! We're very pleased to have another cyberpunk counterpart in the world of Source modding, and we welcome anyone who embraces the genre with open arms. Check out NeoTokyo for lots of great action and some thrilling gameplay over at NeoTokyoHQ.com.

On a final note, we would like people to welcome a recent addition to the team -- a new programming tryout, Hardigan. We're all very excited to see the talent that Hardigan brings to the team!

Until next time folks!

The match was very intense but I was shocked to see what the dys matches are all about: legboosted mediums.

If you'd actually watched it, you'd have seen that we nearly capped first with a heavy rush, that funk was a shotgun light for most of the match, and that we used mediplants to attack the airlock. Nevermind the fact that both teams of course had an ion heavy on defense.

But other than that, yes! It was practically like playing PsY on assemble, legboosted mediums and nothing else. :roll:

Also, new heatmaps are sexy.

I was going to reply when it was posted yesterday, but it was late, I was quite drunk and had only popped up stairs during an ad break on TNG (it was the episode where they find the Dyson sphere, with the crashed Federation transport ship, and Montgomery Scott still locked in the pattern buffer of the Transporter system).

Anyway... Always good to see a news update, and to know that this great mod/game is still getting attention and love from the Devs. The FaceBook group is mentioned... and I'd also like to mention the Dystopia Last.FM group. If you scrobble, you should sign up.

Also... You should all check out the DGL finals match. Was a great game, very exciting, with plenty going on and plenty to be talking about (including the greatest door kills ever seen, and "Teamwork" Kaya's communication/suicide fail... gj guys). I'm tempted to watch through it again, but then I'll have to listen to myself... so I might just mute it.

GG with the Heatmaps... they make a little more sense now. And, GL with the devving stuff. Keep up the good work guys.

I'd like to test them out a bit, but I can't seem to find them. Been a while since I've been on the forums, and I've had no sleep in a couple days, so maybe I'm missing them. It said supporters could find them at the stats page, but I don't see them.

You need to be logged in on the stats page to see the actual maps, but you should be able to see the button even without.

Go to Maps -> Choose Map -> Heatmaps. Next to Overview, Rounds, Weapons etc.
Lyta had a little Vorlon, her skin was pale as snow. And everywhere that Lyta went, the Vorlon was sure to go.

Yea I'm logged in to the stats page too, I then go to maps and it shows a listing of the maps w/screenshots, but nothing about heatmaps. hrmmm.

EDIT: Nevermind, had to click on a map first. DUH lol. Sorry, brain isn't working yet today :)
