A recipie that if you were to put together on paper sounds good but in reality tends to go together like chili and dark chocolate; a very aquired taste that usually only extreme autists like. You'd think this would be kind of hard to fuck up but usually it's down to the playerbase making the games shit. Fags only have to remember (((The Empires Community))) to know what I am on about.

Despite this there are some decent games in the genre out there. All fags have to do is look at games like Battlezone. There's also the various Battlefield games before they went to shit that toyed around with the Commander idea that are fun. While the original Renegade was not an FPS/RTS Hybrid Renegade X got updated to include a Commander.

So the real question I put to fags is what FPS/RTS Hybrids work and when do we play them?

d72cb3 No.61404

Does Zombie Master count? I overall liked Zombie Master even if it was kind of simple.

Wasn't Natural Selection one as well? Only played a little bit of NS though.

Anything that combines FPS and RTS mechanics together anon counts. Natural Selection is another example of being good in idea but (((community))) turns it to shit.

Thoughts on Nuclear Dawn?

I didn't play much and was never a commanderfag myself but I remember enjoying it.

I think what makes these hybrid genre games work is that players are assigned separate roles as seperate genres and depend on each other.

As opposed to a generic FPS where you shoot the other team to win (everyone has the same role).

The (((community))) matters more because you rely on communicating with the other players on your team and them fulfilling their role.

Therefore playing with randoms is a suicide mission.

Also I will now try chili + dark chocolate it seriously sounds pretty good.

I played it briefly and all I remember is finding the UI ass and being unable to figure out shit. Also maps felt a bit claustrophobic. I'm willing to chalk this shit about me being unable to play but honestly I tend to pick up this shit rather quickly and it never clicked.

Can Mountain Blade be considered an FPS/RTS?

I mean there is resource collection, Getting units and ordering them around in combat

It has a lot of aspects from both

e57373 No.61586


With some mods? Yes. Although it's often played in Third Person.

fc52f7 No.61588


The battles would be FPS/RTT, the campaign just a plain old RTS/RPG.

There's also the Tiberian Sun and Red Alert mods for the classic Renegade, but both of those require some shitty launcher that I couldn't get to install properly.

Well for one thing it's considered mostly Third Person rather than First Person

Which begs a good question. Why does everyone focus on FPS/RTS hybrids when there's tons of Third Person RTS hybrids? Rise and Fall being an example of one of them which was essentially Age of Empires but you could play as your hero units. Then there's also Men of War. List goes on.

I unironically enjoyed the new Carrier Command except when the game turns into a manta racing sim

I was wondering what that game was like. Debated waiting till "Mods will fix it!" then sort of forgot about it.

Butterlord though is going to be a hybrid of Total War and an RPG.

The game is rough as hell, plus people lost their fucking minds when you start out as an infantryman and you get the carrier later in the plot. The shooting is crap and the pathfinding is terrible, but you can switch to controlling individual units on the fly, so it's easily able to be worked around. When you're actually into it, you get 4 ground vehicles with a bunch of selectable weapons, and armor platings with a speed vs health tradeoff. Same with 4 aircraft called mantas. It's surprisingly hard to hit shit with your weapons on the move as a ground vehicle, especially powerful stuff like plasma cannons, so I always had a vehicle with the hitscan laser. Or you can turn on auto-aim but it's stupidly heavy as in your laser practically shoots sideways to hit shit.

The manta racing sim is what I'm calling a mission where you have to catch some guy in a manta. The mantas have a huge acceleration on their controls like a racing sim. I was playing on PC and I found this section so bad I had to get out a controller to complete it.

I have a perverse love for 6-7/10 games, bear this in mind when you decide.

>Controls making shit impossible

This triggers me a lot about games. Do devs not playtest anything before they release it?

You'd be surprised since it was tried before and it did not work properly or at least in a way that was not a pain in the ass.

That was funny how the PRfags managed to get into a war with the /k/ cause they could not take honest criticism of the game and the community at large.

Half tempted to host a Renegade X game if only for a few hours to test the waters this weekend but that's only if I get chance to do it. That or try and get Piratefag Renegade working and make it retard anon proof

It would conflict with the Barotrauma fags though.

The fuck why? It's not like making accurate depictions of weapons or history is hard.

29c3ec No.63590


Wish I took screencaps but to give an idea /k/fags made a legit criticism on the game mechanics and approached it as if it was vidya; in particular they complained about how the bleeding worked was bad and drawdistance abuse made a lot of cover worthless. PR fags claimed that the game was hyperrealistic at which point /k/ tore them to shreds later being revealed in a meta discussion that PRfags tried to argue with a real life US Combat Medic and Brit Paramedic on how bleeding worked and lost badly. Then they tried to claim the game was good cause it was unrealistic which just made /k/ tear them apart harder. It was like watching a bunch of retards dig a pit for themselves and each time they tried to dig themselves out of it they just dug themselves deeper.

PRfags essentially made it impossible to invite /k/ to gamenights for a long ass time due to their blind shilling of PR trying to defend the game against a board that is legitimately the last place you want to pick a fight with.

So? /vg/ has had multiple gamenights going before.

You know we could always squat on a Renegade X server if fags really wanted to play? There are a few admins who are chill. Just saying.

Might as well throw an unofficial night for it.

4a53ab No.64628



If you make a gamenight in a server you don't control then it will end badly. We learned this the hard way when there was a PR gamenight which honestly majority of the problems were down to anons not having their own server to shitpost in.

Still nothing stops us meeting up and squatting in a server and shitposting together. I just think we'll all end up banned for stacking Nod.

There's instructions for hosting a LAN server using the BF2 dedi on their forums, but not sure if it actually allows you to connect:
