oc_background_pyramid (background map only not for server)

Post by fug4life »

oc_background_pyramid

Like the title says this is a background map for clients only this is not for use on a server.
In case you did not know a background map is for the mod menu screen.

[BBvideo 640,385][/BBvideo]

Here's what you'll see when the mod is loading:

Star field increased density:

***Notes***

ATI graphics card users that have dynamic mounting enabled you can now join a server without mounting troubles or graphics glitches.

Nvidia graphics card users can change the scripts\ChapterBackgrounds.txt so that this background will randomly load with the mod's originals (Read the notes in the text to learn how to do it)..

***Final Notes***

In the: maps\cfg\oc_background_pyramid_modify.txt it is possible to disable/change the music as well as disable/change the Star Field density (Read the notes included in the modify.txt to learn how to do it).

Download (174k.zip from filefront, added 14/12/10):
http://www.filefront.com/17649218/oc_ba ... dated.rar/

Extract to your obsidian folder, sorry this is not an add-on.

Regards,

fug

P.s. If anyone wants the .vmf for this map just give me a shout, pm or whateva, contact me and I'll upload for you.

*issues*

*You may have to use changelevel command in the console to create a listen server, my map uses a particle, so I'll make another background map and see if its related to that.

I've uploaded an updated zip file so this map is now fully functional with 1.35, see above.

I listed an issue at the bottom of the first post.

@Gary let me know if you experience the same thing with your map plz when you're next testing it out.

Will do. Something else, would you happen to know how expensive brushwork is to load? For example, if I made complex brushwork would it load a lot faster if I made it into a prop with Propper? As you want this to load as fast as you can with out giving up visual quality.


Also, would you mind if I use your setup as a base for mine? I would give credit of course, I just want to make sure mine works as well and I never made a proper background for OC(I always made my come up with the mapbackground command).

Funny you should say that, I guess the more models the better, currently that pyramid is made of 5 brushes, I'm sure one model would be better, but in my case there's hardly anything in the map, its probably little difference.

Stuff like music 5mb files etc, obviously has an impact, really the fact your just loading a mapis what takes its time.

Look forward to your background maps, I'd definately dl the sewer scene. I was thinking of making a coupel more, but not till I have other things done.

I just installed it, but only changed the background. The sound is the same, and no background map.


I not modified anything.

Are you saying something is wrong, or that you only installed the images.

Does OC have a theme tune?

I'll let you know if something ain't right.

The map gives me: Invalid SteamUserID Ticket.

Cannot join any other server when using the background map. Yes I've confirmed this by changing the ChapterBackground.txt back again.

@Datastream, yeah I've had before in 1.34 & 1.35, Ive only had it once since new version and when I looked by internet had dropped disconnect whilst the mod was loading so assumed it was related to that, also ive had that before when steam is having conenction issues across the web.

So no idea, do you get it every load of the map, or you only checked the once?

@Maestro, no idea why you're having issues, I gather datastram apart from his error the map is loading, right? So idk why you only see the images.

:(

Will investigate further, thanks for the reports, and sorry for any incovienances!
