Oooh, thanks for the notice, Kyaw! I would be downloading it now, though, but it seems Steams servers are under some heavy load from the game.

If Steam servers go slow at any time then change your server Settings>> Downloads+cloud Download REGION.

Don't like the mouse control it feels weird.
Maybe I am completely blind, I cannt find a way to change mouse sensitivity in the options event he command sensitivity "0.61" does nothing.

[QUOTE="OversleptAgain, post: 5104102]System requirements, anyone?[/QUOTE]

Click the link in the OP, scroll down to the bottom of the page and read the system requirements there.

Easy (if you're not lazy).

[QUOTE="SpyroViper, post: 5104066]I'm sure the game is awesome.

But I'm more interested in the source code :snicker[/QUOTE]

It's using a source engine somewhere in between L4D2 and Portal 2, hence why it isn't on Mac, because the SDK doesn't support OpenGL.

Precisely why it makes it interesting to read, it's quite clean code too!

Yeah, programmers. You know, the ones that create the games you play!

Show some god darn respect mofo! :snicker

@Keefy - I doubt that, debugging a large feature would take quite a while.. I'm no C++ expert and I've got better things to do (like working on my own projects) ;)

I'm sure somebody will though, the open source community will undoubtly fix a lot of things.

Found a way to make it look and play a bit better as first person but there are still issues

1. you have to cheat
2. you cannot use special weapon/tools liek door welders etc

add this to a config then exec it when you want to try.
Code:
sv_cheats 1;firstperson;asw_hide_marine;asw_controls 0

I've added those who have posted their steam account here.

I'm a bit confused as to which ID I am suppose to give when giving my steam details (account name, screen name, email etc). Anyway, my screen name on it is ChrisUK, so if I've added you, you know who it is.

Well its not like I did it on purpose, you had 3 health left and I had a minigun. The forces of the human instinct forced me to press down the mouse and obliterate you. I had no control!

But in all seriousness, the flamethrower is kinda hard to control is such a confined space. I blame you for me killing you.
