    You can zoom out to get a better view of the battlefield. These screen shots just happen to be zoomed in so we can see the characters better in combat.

    No other free sprites? I started with a free sprite template, but as far as I know, no one has made any free weapon or armor sprite sheets for this template.

    Have you played Spycraft ? If not, it would be interesting to read your opinion about it.



    Damn, I need to replay the game, very ambitious and left some good memories in a FMV era of adventure games.

    Ninja Destroyer I had never heard of that game. In general I really don't like depictions of CIA in books, films, and video games. Almost all of them are complete fiction, with no resemblance at all to the real CIA. And most of the realistic depictions of CIA that are still exciting just make me resentful and I think "I wish my career had been like that." And then people just don't make CIA stories that are boring and mundane. The reality of life at CIA is that for 99% of the people there, it's Office Space, only not as funny.

    Care to give examples?

    How is that surprising? Stories that people tell are made from exceptional events instead of everyday drudgery. Even those are abridged and don't include repetitive tasks unless they've contributed to the unfolding of events.

    I was going to ask if they removed your green colored night fluorescence when you quit but the image above captures whatever I wanted to convey and more

    Examples that are more realistic: Argo, Zero Dark Thirty, Sicario. There are plenty of reasons why these movies are wildly inaccurate, but they do have kernels of truth. The major thing about those movies is that they show a lot of planning for relatively short action.

    TV series format is preferable to feature films for those themes.

    I thought we only have FBI posting on Codex, but now DOD and CIA members are coming out of the closet.
    Cool story.

    Cool, I saw your game on the Unreal community spotlight stream thing. Didn't even know they still promote UDK games.

    ....So if you're from the CIA and found the codex, does that mean the CIA is watching the codex?

    Do you have reasons to believe Safav Hamon's retardation is just a guise?

    I didn't know either, until they did! I was talking with Epic just before launch and my rep there was surprised that there were still new UDK/UE3 games being released. There's a couple of Korean mobile games getting content-only sequels and updates, and stuff like that. But this might be the last new UE3 game that ever sees the light of day.

    Dude, you trying to blow his cover? Now we're going to have start over with someone new trying to work his way into DU's inner circle.
