Mike Adams Interview

UK gaming magazine “PCZone” talked to Mike Adams (Producer at Dreamcatcher) about Painkiller: Overdose.
[q]”Also, for multiplayer we´re hopefully going to have six to eight new levels, on top of the multiplayer levels from Painkiller. Old favourites like the stake gun and the Painkiller weapon itself will be in there too.”[/q]

ESL Ladder

Half a year ago the ESL Painkiller Ladder returned. Now i see that the League is very inactive. I am a little bit dissapointed about that. It would be nice if some Painkiller players would return into the League.

Please join the Ladder www.esl.eu/eu/pk/

Ex-CPL Players comments

Thats what former CPL player think about the announced Painkiller: Overdose MOD:

Vo0:”wtb”(want to buy); Ztrider:”Im so gonna play this game!”; gellehsak:”Its a small world afterall… though on the flip side i am interested to see what theyve done with the game :P”
I assume CLains would like to play Overdose too.

Tomas Pluharik answering

Tomas “sep” Pluharik (the Boss of MindwareStudios) took some time and answered various questions he was asked by the community throu the forums:

– About the distribution of character development tools:[q]”These things has to be decided yet … I would like to say yes, but I am not sure if some tech issues will emerge …”[/q]

– About Demo:[q]”These things are being discussed now … what when how. We are now still thinking that some of Overdose stuf will be free for everyone/comunity … but that is part of further dealings.”[/q]

– About improving the game engine:[q]”Some small pieces, but the engine is slightly messy.”[/q]

– About the storyline and redoing stuff:[q]”There will be some content bump which will describe the cover story too … Some pieces, but we were ahead of schedule.”[/q]

Monsterlist

I have made a complete MonsterList.txt with all (230) aviable monsters from PK/BooH.

Please post wich monsters you are planing to test in the comments! Like PeTjA from monster 0-20. So we can avoid doubletesting!

For testing try to create small groups with different sizes of the monsters etc.

If U get LScript-errors post them in the comments from your /Bin/script_error.log. And if possible the line from the *.lua that causes the error.

Painkiller SP Map Support

For those that want it, here is a version of Painkiller.exe which supports listing SP maps for MP loading!

Painkiller++.zip

This is not essential for PKBeta testing, but useful if you like doing everything through the dedicated server interface / listen server menu ui. It goes without saying that this also does not require the game cd, and is fully compatible with Vanilla Painkiller.

PK++ Beta On Steamfish

I have put the PK++ beta version (1.41.1.64) onto Steamfish and will maintain it from there. NOTE: This is in addition to PK++ 1.31.1.64, so that I can do more testing without spoiling PK++ for the non-testers.

Simply run the updater twice and answer yes to adding desktop icons. You will find a new shortcut on the desktop to run PK++ BETA TEST.

PK++ 1.31.1.64

PK++ 1.31.1.64
=============

ADD: Console now bound to F1 (may make key configurable later)
CHANGE: Console now completes on settings as well as commands
ADD: DeferLoadingPlayers and DeferLoadingRest for faster load times
FIX: Teleporters and Jumppads now work based on client, rather than server
CHANGE: Converted PK++ over to easier-to-maintain format

Have fun 🙂
