Good demos that come to mind have been released for Area 51, Shadowgrounds, and Half-Life (Uplink). All of which feature gameplay elements from latter parts of the game, instead of the intro and tutoriahish parts, like too many demos do.

To show some damn shizzle respect for the hard working people doing these amazing games. if you like the game, buy it. Thats reason enough. Seconded. Too often companies make demos that are too limited to actually show what the gameplay is like. In such cases pirating the game first, and even after...

Living world and physics places the biggest challenge on a multiplayer solution I think. Maybe a bad example, due to the engine used, but the multiplayer in Rainbow Six 3: Raven Shield apparently relies on only synching locations and states of players, terrorists, grenades and interactive objects su...

Creating and maintaining an online play system for today's standards is an awful lot of work.

Ofcource, I'd settle with a 'create server'/'connect to IP' or host/listen type pair, but that'll be quite some work too. Synching all the enemies, items, effects, etc.

Sounds like a hardware and/or software conflict. Not that I know these things for certain, but in my experience getting the newest drivers and closing down any resource hungry or otherwise dominating programs (things that keep steaing the program focus, etc.) while playing could just solve the probl...

January came and went, yet no announcement... I'm sure you have a reason for this, but I hope it's not that you've forgotten :P Speaking of the new game, two things off the top of my head: - Double-wielding of weapons. Basically, the ability to carry two weapons of a (non-heavy) type and fire both, ...

(While the game/Windows will treat two keyboards as one, two keyboards might actually help on the problem of multiple keystrokes pressed simultaneously - if someone knows for sure, let me know.) In my experience it helps. I've played a game four players at once with two keyboards with virtually no ...

I have a feeling the spambots read the forum name. Rename this board to "Shadowgrounds Discussion" and the spam board to "General Spam" or something and see what happens... Altho it might be they check the board ID and choose a smaller one... I have no idea how spambots actually ...

[SPOILOR] End boss buggering up? and other things.

Great stuff, finished the game yesterday at last. I came across a few things that seem like they're not meant to be so: 1. End boss: After I had nuked the hell out of him, he returned to full health. I continued to treat him with a variety of weapons, untill at about 1/3 of health left, he just froz...

I played the demo (and loved it!) and noticed there's a "to12" instead of "to 12" in one of the weapon upgrade descriptions. Don't remember exactly, but I think it was the pistol's capacity. This being the demo I don't know if it's fixed in the full or something, though...
