HEY im starting to make The Dead Live again! I have been working on it very hard and i've learned from alot of my mistakes that i did in my first attempt at making this so be pre-prepared to be amazed.

Here is the story:


The Dead Live

*UPDATED April 22,2009*



A Mentally Ill man has broken out of a Mental Intrustion and has been wondering and killing inasent people in Hellsion. He is helping more Mental and Killers break out of there Intrustions and has been getting deadly desises in to peoples bodys and to make them become mutated and deformed the Desises has been released into the air you can not see the gas in the air in the day time but when the moon rises you can see the gas in the air creating a fog in the air this is making the dieses spread faster though the area and the U.S but it takes longer to go though you system and to your brain.

You are playing as a man that lives in Hellsion named Rick. He is cop that works in the area you have a basically normal life. Intell everything changes one afternoon the T.V, Radio and Phone lines have been down for weeks now and there was no way to inform the people of hellsion of this Apocalypse happening all over the U.S. So while you were sleeping in the afternoon while the sun was setting because you work the night shift you were woken up by growling and things breaking only to find that your Wife is not in the house but someone or something else was. You will have to save yourself and help the other people that havent been infected yet.

Will you survive the Apocalypse?

yea thanks for the comments

and DJ Master that is a car. you dont start out in a mental Instrution either its the guys home.

and ik i have to add more lights and stuff to the level but i just wanted to get some screenies because it takes so long for the light mapping to go though in the test game.

and POK i remember you lol and this is the same game with the same story but im mixing up things inside the level and making the level well the first one anyway way more shorter.

And if anyone would like to help me with the segments for the floor and walls that would be much apprecated because i used to have Magic FPSC for that but that was about a year ago and i might buy it again but im not sure so if anyone wants to help me with the segments. plz email me or just messege me.

thanks for the Comments.

Okay how im setting up the "levels" and the game for that matter first of all

Im breaking the game up into chapters yes kinda like GoW or RE.
and i am doing this because i think this is really going to lower the polly count for the levels and reduse alot of lag.

Because for my first try at making this game i had the house that im showing you for the first level BUT I had more i had a big map with a road and some houses but the level wasnt really interactive meaning that there was really only a couple things to do, get ur gun then go to ur neibors house kill the zombies in his house then go to a hotal.(but getting to that place there was nothing(yes no zombies in the street). So it was very frustrating and boaring for me and probaly alot of people. so i think that doing this will make in way more lag free and fun for alot of people.

So I will add the chapter and level procress in my first post.

and i will be giving you guys more details on this as the game goes further.

How bout this, put a stash of ammo on a table in a corner or something, and make sure they can see it. When they go to get it, have zombies spawn behind them, so when they turn around they get a surprise.

just my thought

I am liking what I can see!
A little suggestion, perhaps yo can do a hall, with a gantry ringing round the edges on top, with a view down, and there are zombies guarding on the gantries. Then the player has a choice of method:
They can march in and blow everyone to pieces,
OR
they could sneak around through ventilation shafts and things, and knife the enemies in the backs!
What do you think?

Beachard5, I would make your light range a bit bigger, it would be more realistic. Plus there should be a lot of light coming from that fireplace. Just a suggestion

If u r looking for comments, suggestions,...etc., i have the same problem with my page. NEway, that game looks like it could use some sort of xtreme FX. have you considered downloading omega mod for bloom, antialiasing, motion blur and whatever else it does without slowing down your framerates?

Hello everybody i know not alot of people have been commenting but Im still working on the game.

since this part of the chapter(level 2) is to complex for me to just post pictures i made a video for you guys

Sorry for the graphical glitches they have been fixed and the framrate is just because of Fraps trust me i have played this map way to many times and never had framrate badly



please comment could really use the feedback and i know this game isnt as exciting as the other games in Procress right now.

Alright guys heres some screenies of the 3rd level Chapter 1

This is kinda the same thing as the 2nd level chapter 1 where you have 2 different ways to go you can go though the warehouse first floor or you can go up onto the platforms in the warehouse and go though the hallways of the warehouse your choice!

Thanks POK for the Fog script if you dont want me using the script just tell me and i will delete it from the levels i wont be using it in every level just the outdoor ones.

Ik theres not many people support this game but im still trying and im having alot of fun with this now that i have the hang of this and can make some really good levels(i think). All thanks to those people in my first The Dead Live post.

Thanks for the mention!

I liked the video, especially the first big scene with all the fire etc. One thing I DID notice though was that the enemies never responded to your presence. It was like a shooting gallery. None of them moved until you attacked. Perhaps you can try and fix that? Alot of enemies is all well and good but when it gets to the point that you can simple walk past them it gets a bit silly.

This looks really good Beachard 5!! I love the fog aspect of it the most. It really adds a sense of realism and suspense to your game. Please keep updating the screenys when ever possible so we can all see how production is going! Keep up the good work, Shaka.

Are you sure it has stopped? Generally I find that if I have a large level with lots of light it will pause on "Waiting for threads to finish". You should try it on full again and leave it for a good 2 - 3 hours and see if it loads. From now on obviously keep it at "Quick lightmapping" to save time.
