News Comments > id: No Tech 5 Licensing

I have a feeling we'll never see the GPL version of id Tech 5 now. The overlords will want to milk it for decades probably.

Maybe by 2050 they'll release it. :/

But it's ok. I understand virtual texturing and am making my own implementation. But that's not the hard part. The hard part, like Carmack talked about, is the tools to make it useful and stuff.

I do gotta say a crossbow is a pretty darn cool weapon to have in a game. A "regular" bow would be neat too.

The reloading knife is...interesting. I wonder if there's such thing in RL? Probably not and I'm not sure I see much of a point. But it is different I'll give them that.

The RC car reminded me of Rage. I wonder who copied who? Or if it's just a coincidence.

maybe they can put Osama bin Laden in the game just like they did with Soldiers of Fortune when they put Saddam Hussein in that game


That would be cool to get the chance to blow that idiot's head off with a 50 cal. It may not be real, but it would be gratifying in a small way.

Well, at least they didn't pull an "American Army" and make it so no matter which side you're on the opposing side always looks like the "Taliban".


That's actually what they should have done. I don't think it's cool at all, a game or not, to play as any currently existing and relevant terrorist group. The thing about WW2 games and playing as the nazis is that the nazis no longer exist and thus have no influence on the world. Also that all happened a very long time ago. But the Taliban do still exist and continue to present a problem today so this is still a very sensitive issue to a lot of people. I think it's a mental sickness to WANT to play as the "evil"/"bad guys" anyway. For me, if given the choice, I always choose the good side.

Most of us know it's just a game and it will not influence us to play as the "bad guys" anyway, but not everyone is like that. There's a lot of sickos out there unfortunately.

As far as the rest of this game, it's a CoD clone and I can't stand unrealistic whack-a-mole scripted short games like that. I rented MW2 for shits and giggles and I'm glad I did and didn't buy it.

Personally I'd much rather just play the Quake 3 I already have which served us well for a long time and costs me nothing to play. It's on STEAM for real cheap too for those who lost their CDs (I'm not 100% sure I know where mine is actually).

Plus I don't like the idea of running games through a browser.

Not me for sure. I got burned with DR and I won't get burned again.

They only got lucky with DR being a big seller because of the name. I doubt they'll be so lucky now. It's a shame they have tainted the Operation Flashpoint name now.

F codemasters.

"while staying true to the core tactical combat that is the hallmark of Operation Flashpoint"

Uh no you guys did not even come close to that with DR.


We heard you over on Voodoo Extreme dumbass! You donít need to reiterate it here too.


Good for you fuktard. Watch and see me not give two sh1ts.

Is this from the same guys who made Dragon Rising? If so Im looking forward to it, I liked the first version was a hell of a lot better than the other retarded realistic version thats out now. and I found nothing wrong with the UI in this ver if its the one your talking about.


You are very easily amused it seems.


Dragon Rising SUCKED hard. The graphics were horrible, was not even remotely realistic, horrible AI, horrible UI, very bland and boring environment, no modding at all just basic mission making and just an all around fail.

Even with the quirkyness, Arma 2 and especially with the OA expansion kicks Dragon Rising's ass in every way. Which is saying a lot b/c I have some huge issues with the engine they use for Arma and the quality of the sounds and voices.

Codemasters just needs to stop with the Operation Flashpoint stuff. They are not doing the series justice at all. The only way the first one was good was because Bohemia Interactive did it. I do know this, while I was fooled into thinking DR was going to be an Arma killer (LOL not even close!) and bought it on release day for $50, I sure as hell will not do that again as long as Codemasters is in charge. They should just give OFP back to Bohemia.

Now if only the BBC, and possibly other UK networks/sites, would spell it NASA instead of Nasa. That annoys the crap out of me.

First it was to blame piracy for a crappy game's low sales, now they're blaming it on Red Dead Redemption. Yep, it was Red Dead, not the truck-load of bugs and broken game-play elements. Never!

What next, blame the BP spill on Red Read? LOL! That game is just destroying us! Oh noes.

I probably played the nerfed version because I don't remember it. Of course, it also has been quite some time since I last played those missions.

Now I feel like going back and playing them again. I should still have it all installed. Last weekend I was actually playing some of my fav missions from Cold War Crisis.

I agree this DLC BIS is doing is not the nickle and dime greed approach most others are doing.

I liked the Cold War Crisis conversion to Arma 1, but for me the performance was so bad I could not play it. But it was still cool to see it with upgraded details. I have been waiting for the Arma 2 conversion for quite some time. Arma 2 seems to give me much better performance than Arma 1 did.

PMC Fury was indeed a cool campaign. But a lot of times it felt like they went for quantity over quality. Some missions were quite awesome though.

I just wish they could release campaigns that are big and awesome like Cold War Crisis (main campaign from Operation Flashpoint) and the expansion Resistance. Those were very well done. I liked Red Hammer too even though it was made by someone else.

But the campaigns for Arma and Arma 2 were crap. I have only played the demo to Operation Arrowhead so I can't say what its campaign is like, but I heard it's short. The one mission in the demo from the campaign was extremely short and simple, but wasn't bad. I can say that their demos (because of the editor included with part of the main map) have more value than most full games these days. Pretty sad.

I loved Haunted House for the A2600. I will check this out for sure.

I was also a big fan for the A2600 of Frankenstein's Monster. The sound effects were always scary to me and they still creep me out. lol!

I try to like this game b/c I want realism, but I just can't. Everything is implemented so damn poorly and amateurish. The performance should not be as bad as it is for what's being drawn and what's going on. The HDR implementation is the worst I've seen. The gameplay is very fragile, awkward and just wonky. The AI is about as dumb as it gets. The animation is laughable. The only models that look good are weapons and military vehicles. All other models just look strange. No physics. An interface that is really clunky. Sure there's a lot of interaction to deal with, but the interface could be a lot better than it is. It's just not intuitive at all.

Unfortunately, they can't really fix any of this b/c the brain dead die-hards would complain since they're so used to it I guess and it would break backwards compatibility which seems so important to the die-hards. Their engine is just plan crap in every way. They really should replace it with something proven to be robust and cross-platform. The scripting language they came up with has the most bizarre syntax there is. Doing any kind of precise mission creating is a huge pain as well.

It's just too bad BIS is the only one willing to make a game like this. The thing is, they're going for a hard core sim, yet most things are NOT realistic at all. It's quite strange.
