Nope it hasn't. I still get in ok and I've not changed the password I've been using. PM Thud see if he's done anything to the list of people who have access, he might have left you off.

Hey Chapster! Welcome to DA's Home base. Project team is getting something together shortly. Regrettably, in last 4-5 months no real 3d work done (on account of both Greensphero and Morat are missing). I brought on another good 3d artist, Aydin, to fill in but unsure whats going on. Other minor project stuff has been done in the meantime. Close to releasing first public beta.

Welcome to the forum Chaplain261, as you can see there's not a lot going on...

I forgot to email Aydin to see what he's up to. Doh! It's on my to do list.

Really think we need a dedicated 3d artist that can come in, have a look at what we have and work from there without us prompting or leading, like Greenphearo was able to do, that's the only way we'll move forward imo.

PB might be a while yet, I've yet to actually start on hex editing the models so we don't have color bleed, which is the biggest part of getting it ready.

Been playing the DoW 2 beta and doing other bits and pieces...

Thanks for the welcoming guys and its good new that a beta might be coming soon, but thats to bad about the 3d artist, those must be hard to come by. Sorry but I can't really help much with modeling, wish I could but don't have the time to learn.

Correction Chaplain261 - the beta will be coming soon. We'd look down the back of the sofa for a new 3d artist but as you said they are hard to come by so I don't think that'll work either. :p

Besides we have other avenues to explore in terms of sourcing 3d works. Aydin may yet be able to help, HorusHeretic, is, was doing us a commander, last he told me he only had some OE work and bits and pieces to do on it.

And Thud reliably informs us that Imperial Honor of the Fallen Angels mod may also be able to help us out.

So all is not lost. We have 90% of the models we require anyway as they're already availble to the community, they just needed Dark Angel-fying a bit, we do need to do some texture work on them though but that'll get done in due course, after the public beta is out.

If you want to lend a hand we could do with someone who can hex edit files, it's a fairly simple job, just boring and time consuming. :thumbsdownsmiley:

Hex editing a file is using a hex editing tool such as HxD to replace certain bytes in the files, it gets around having to open the file in it's relevant program, such as 3d sim ed.

Ok as much as I would like to help, I don't have any of those programs on my computer and really think I need training in doing that don't I?

Do you know how to download and run an application?

Can you use a search/replace function and stare at text for a couple of hours?

That's really all it is. :D

Great! Thanks. :thumbsupsmiley:

Give me a couple of days and I'll archive the models that need "hexing" and the tool you can use to do it with and upload them and PM you a link.

Getting this done will speed things up greatly where getting the public beta out is concerned.

Don't let it interfere with your school work though. :unsure:
