    And this one?
    Yep.

    Update in progress...

    Last Home Defense, I Promise
    Show Spoiler

    What you know. Another house defence.
    This time it will be last one.


    [​IMG]
    While we keep our house safe Zhirik is making himself a new chief of the Bazaar.

    [​IMG]
    Look at that! The old design was more believable. But this? Who want to carry that much
    old cars to make some sort of tunnel?

    [​IMG]
    what

    [​IMG]
    I got not time to prepare when the first wave is coming already.

    [​IMG]
    :lol:
    ricochet from invisible wall?

    [​IMG]
    Seriously?

    [​IMG]
    Almost reached the nest...

    [​IMG]
    ...then this cocksucker shot me down. I survived this shot, but how many of them
    remained, before I run out of luck?

    Let's take care of that group.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT IS GOING ON

    [​IMG]
    Allright, let's go with this mess.

    [​IMG]
    Just like before - put someone near the safe and teleport mines to the Akhmet. That
    way more traps can be set.

    [​IMG]
    How dare you calling my wife a "creep".

    [​IMG]
    They're out of my line of fire.
    But not for long.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Two out of three in one burst. Nice.

    [​IMG]
    Now they're coming out.

    [​IMG]
    New group coming in the north-east. Dispatched easily.

    [​IMG]
    Oh sheise, someone got through.
    Let them shred in the valley.

    [​IMG]
    I don't even

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    What he wanted to do with it? Blow some mine?

    [​IMG]
    Hmm... you know what? If they get through that left passage - that could be
    clever tactic. With enough cannon fodder... soviet tactic at finest.

    [​IMG]
    Vitek gained AP ability. Now the jokes are over.
    Serb too and Akhmet improved his sight.

    [​IMG]
    The fuck is this?

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Ok.
    Wonder when that moment happen.

    [​IMG]
    I was paranoid and set mine in my house but didn't bothered with possibility
    of disarming it. Now I spend 10 minutes trying to disarm my own trap.
    What a pity. :woops:

    [​IMG]
    These so called Khasil men are no joke based on their equipment and protection.
    Glad it's over.

    [​IMG]
    This is what remain from the trap building.
    I think it took one Khasil? What a waste of potential.

    [​IMG]
    Even in heat of battle in post apocalyptic world there is time for relax.

    Closer to the end but it's still feel like shit to be here.
    Just look at the new faces in the Bazaar.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    For real.
    Marketman: Afternoon, Akhmet-san. A five for entrance, please. You know the order.
    Did I missed something or there was Japan invasion recently? Does Zhirik’s assault went too far?
    Akhmet:"What's new?"
    Marketman:"Khasli raiders have just captured one of the fisher houses.
    Everyone late to escape has been killed. They came here too. But we fought them back."
    Akhmet:"I suffered too. Alright, take care."

    Another new face
    Pashkin:"Hey, Akhmetzyanov. I see you're still breathing."
    Akhmet:"Greetings, Pashkin. I like breathing. And what about you - I saw how Nigmat cleaned up the Administration."
    Pashkin:"Good."
    Akhmet:"What's good about that?"
    Pashkin:"Don't you get it? My lads have some issues with Nigmat. It works both ways, so Nigmat has some issues with us.
    When they'll find out that there's still three of us left, they will turn the Big Thirty upside down to finish us.
    Oh, we're four, not three. That's what I want to talk about. Serb's under you now, isn't he? I'd like to talk with him."
    There is new function that I never used or was aware of it in the first place.
    I can talk with my team mates even when they join my team. By pressing RMB few times
    pointer change and I can speak with Serb. That way dialogue continue.

    Pashkin:"Hello, Serb!"
    Serb::"Denis, you're alive! Brother! I was about to burry you and me! Thanks to Akhmet - he saved my ass although I still can't believe it. I was shot and confused, I could have been killed by even a child."
    Pashkin:"It seems you're healed now?"
    Serb:"Healed as a wild dog. Forget my health, I know what you're aiming for. I'll be quick: I do want to pay my little debt to Nigmat's morons no less than you do. Uff, I'm ready to smother them with my bare hands. But only if my boss agrees. He saved my life, now he decides."
    Pashkin:"I see. Talk to him, please. Obviously, your House will be destroyed if Nigmat gathers enough power. Now is a perfect opportunity to strike them: they're all injured after a fight. And, Nigmat will divide his fighters into two groups, one of which moves to Rusreserve. And that's where I, Vlad and the young ones will take them by their asses. And if you and Akhmet team up with us, nobody will escape."
    So... Akhmet go and agree to eliminate threat for his house? That make sense.
    Akhmet:"I know, I talked to Pashkin. Don't even try. I already know what you're going to say. I won't let you go with them."
    Serb:"If Nigmat becomes stronger..."
    Akhmet:"Ah, shit. Everybody has the same in mind - revenge, revenge.. But if we enter this mysterious story, Mr. Serb, this mysterious, bloody, dark, bad story, we must do it as a team. If Nigmat gathers enough power today, he'll be a dangerous rival tomorrow. But if we won't survive it, our House won't last long. Alright, I'll consider it."
    Yes, this is optional. But I do anyway. One fight more before final is not a big deal.
    Pashkin: "Honestly, I didn't expect it from you. I know your priorities are your wife and your House. We gather at the old guard post, and move out to the Rusreserve by night. Then we kick some asses. I have three fighters with me, so Nigmat will suffer heavily."

    [​IMG]
    Another battle. Better be worth it.

    [​IMG]
    Good reason to cut the influence but paying some imagined debt is just silly.

    [​IMG]
    Arkasha: How are you? I see you’re a handsome man. I’ve got wares for people just like you. I mean guns. Here, take a look!
    ...kinda :codexisfor:
    Akhmet:"Who are you? I've never seen you before."
    Arkasha:"Name is Arkadij. You may call me Arkasha. I used to trade at DOK, under Nigmat.
    Yeah it was a mess and I could easily be robbed, and the guards didn't care.
    So when Kiriukha restored order at your place, I moved here."

    [​IMG]
    Despite soft heart and soft voice his possession is hard and speak harshly.

    [​IMG]
    He even sell RPGs. All these answers for "what's RPG?" lies here, in your nearby store.

    [​IMG]
    Waitaminute
    the fuck is this?
    I...have...high...suspicion...about incoming events....

    [​IMG]
    Solid tool of pain and destruction. Common bread for Serb.

    [​IMG]
    who?
    Akhmet:"Hey! How's your Bazaar business?"
    Zhirik:"It's okay so far. You see people are gathering, every next day we earn a buck more than the day before.
    But there are expenses too. You see I can't even afford a new girl that I desire. You see this bitch brought by Jackal? Dammit,
    where does he find such girls.. I am standing here all salivating. He asks for half a thousand, not a Five less.
    I wish I could just shoot him down and take her, but that's bad for business."
    Akhmet:"Yeah, it must be. So, it's time to rescue you from your sexual toxicosis. Ok, just remember my kindness, I'll deal with your problems."


    [​IMG]
    I CAN'T BELIEVE THAT I DEAL WITH THIS CRAP

    [​IMG]
    Passage to the rusreserves is open.

    Be very careful here, cause one wrong word and guns will speak.
    Slaver:"Cool slut, eh?"
    Akhmet:"What do you trade?"
    Slaver:"Don't you see? I breed rabbits. Big two legged rabbits. If you need some labor power we may talk. Sometimes I have girls, in lucky days even unused girls, if you know what I mean. But it's rare and would be expensive. So.. interested?"
    :what::retarded:

    Akhmet:"I'm interested in the girl. What's the price?"
    Slaver:"I promised it to Egor already. He pays four hundred."
    Akhmet:"You will have to break the promise."
    Slaver:"Why should I trick my client?"
    Akhmet:"Have you taken his Fives? No, not yet. It means there's nothing to be concerned about. Jackal, sometimes Fives are only part of the deal."
    Akhmet’s School of Business.

    Slaver:"And then I have to report to Egor, yeah? Are you nuts, Akhmet? You want some fight, yeah?"
    Well, almost all options goes to fight. I have better idea.
    Akhmet:"You take me for a thief? You have just put yourself in serious trouble. Now, bring me the girl, take your four hundred Fives and shove off before I get angry."
    Slaver:"I will charge additional hundred for inconvenience. You know, it won't be easy to explain it all to Egor."
    Just give money to Zhirik. But why he can’t afford it? He’s the boss here!
    Akhmet:"Here, keep it. You owe me now."
    Zhirik:"Well, you tatar mug, thanks. Here, take it, from my personal storage."

    Reward? Pimped out SVD. Fuck you Zhirik.

    [​IMG]
    Battle started as usual
    WHEN SUDDENLY
    [​IMG]
    Kwan troops!
    I'll be damned.

    [​IMG]
    Proper answer(s).

    [​IMG]
    The fuck are you waiting for, do something!

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Looks like kwans are just meatshield for real threat here.

    [​IMG]
    See? Give enough time to surprise.
    But no way I give Pashkin's group time to deal with them, most likely they will just die.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Not sure if you see the flying bullet flying toward watermelon... you
    know what happen next.

    [​IMG]
    I discovered that truck have complicated polygonial structure, it's not solid block
    object like in most videogames. I wasted few shots before this discovery.

    [​IMG]
    I give him no time to bleed.

    [​IMG]
    Somehow I got dazed from nowhere. Luckly it was short and I managed to flee.

    [​IMG]
    AGAIN

    [​IMG]
    The ex-administration guys are actually useful. I got his attention and, while he
    prepared to shoot, the AI managed to take him. Neat.

    [​IMG]
    Two known bandits remain. The one on the north get down after crossed fire from
    Akhmet and administration guys.
    The one behind the truck though...

    [​IMG]
    :laugh: he wasted most bullets in the bumper, while my team targeted his legs.
    All hail the aiming system.

    [​IMG]
    Reward is :incline:
    I saw that thing in action and it's just shred enemies apart.

    [​IMG]
    14kg?? Holy shit, are they trying to remake plate armor or something?

    [​IMG]
    My old loot from 3rd mission is still here but it's useless for me now.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Their grenades are effective, can't argue that.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Can't say the same about their assault rifles.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    I forgot to screencap other parts of the journal. My bad.



    Pashkin survived cause he’s plain immortal and his team can perish and we still progress.
    Pashkin:"Fuck it! Hell, these bastards were in contact with the U.S.!"
    Akhmet:"I'm curious too. How could it happen? As far as I remember, our goal was Nigmat's band, but not the U.S. Army!"
    Pashkin:"You think I was tricking you?"
    Akhmet:"If I thought so, you would have been shot a long time before. What was their business, what do you think?"
    Pashkin:"No need to guess. Maximych was suspicious about Nigmat's behavior. He sensed something wrong."
    So Administration's fall was all the kwan’s plan? :tinfoil:

    Akhmet:"It's believable. For U.S. it's easier to kill us with our own native hands. Means that the dead were thinking of both controlling the Rusreserve and meeting with these guys. A meeting to report and gain their reward."
    Pashkin:"Or just selling drugs. I heard smart locals were selling grass and opium for huge money to Americans."
    Should mention that I found lot of vodka in the kwan's pockets. Nice touch, even in rushed ending.
    Akhmet:"You think they would pay instead of taking it?"
    Pashkin:"Yeah, rarely, but it happens. And..thanks, Akhmet. I appreciate it. Without you, we would be dead. This is a sign of my gratitude. It fired less than ten magazines."
    Akhmet::"Umm.. Is it AEK? I've never held one before. Ok, it's time to go home. Farewell, Pashkin."

    [​IMG]
    Seems like AEK can't be upgraded. No matter, it's already effective.

    See you in next, and last, update!

    Welcome to the final update.
    Serb:"Boss, we have news."
    Akhmet:"Why so serious? Or are your news not funny?"
    Serb:"You decide. A Yankee column camped at Venikovo. About a company with armor, and that's Strikers, not Cougars. That's the ones with cannons."
    ohsnap
    Akhmet:"So they have war in mind. Shit. Ok, continue. What next?"
    Serb:"An engineering vehicle, like our IMR. Command has a Humvee. Also they have several unusual trucks; it's probably electronics or something like that. Electronic trucks' crew wears special helmets, just like in motorcycling shows."
    Akhmet:"Got it. And what the hell are they doing?"
    Serb:"Both roads are blocked and guarded. The electronic trucks have even more guards, they don't let anybody go in. So even locals don't know what's happening."
    Akhmet:"Blocking is solid?"
    Serb:"No, just temporary. They brought some concrete and made a big pile, that's all. So what do you think? You must be scared."
    Akhmet:"Scary it is. I have to talk to Zhirik."
    If you say so. Sorry Vitek, you must wait in the line.
    Went to the Bazaar but then...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    the fuck are they?

    Centerman:"A huge caravan has come and is advancing to the North. They say they're from Sverdlovsk. They're inside and somebody is bringing them food for thirty persons."
    30 people? 30 heavly armed people on the supper? This is serious. And these guy can walk around with guns out. Where is justice?
    Caravaneer1:"Hey, fellow. Got a minute? Would you like a smoke?"
    Akhmet:"Hello. Yes, with pleasure."
    Caravaneer1:I see you've got order here. No chaos. And what's outside?"
    Akhmet:"Chaos ministers were shot a long time ago. The Bazaar has its guard and Pishtim guys are okay too. They have law and order and a lot of people sell copper to them."
    Who the hell is that Pishtim?

    Caravaneer1:"Alright. And what about Houses? Got any serious Houses? I mean any with ten fighters or so."
    I don't like your questions pal.
    Akhmet:"Probably not the same."
    Caravaneer1:"What guns do you use in general? I see few rifles."
    Akhmet:"Yeah, rifles are of little use here."
    Caravaneer1:"Ok. Can you tell me what type of goods has a higher demand here?"
    Akhmet:"I sell protection. So I have no idea. You'd better ask the traders about it."

    Journal update:
    These traders look interesing. Why do they care about us and all these details like who’s got more guns and what conflicts do we have around.


    Caravaneer2:"Hey."
    Akhmet:"Good day, brother. Where are you from?"
    Caravaneer2:"From Polevskiy, if you know where it is."
    Akhmet:"Sure, I know it and I've been there. So how's your business?"
    Caravaneer2:"Well, it's profitable so far. Your place is quiet and you must have a lot of trading here."
    Akhmet:"Not really. For example, you're the second traders this autumn."
    Caravaneer2:"So that's how it is in reality. I had wrong news. Could you explain it to our boss? Certainly, if you have some free time. He's in the pub talking business with locals."

    Journal update:
    Something is wrong with these caravaneers. They’ve been around for a while and they still know nothing about the rules. Thus, they’re new to the city.

    [​IMG]
    Look at this villianic face

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    suspicious
    Jora:"Peace to your house, honest man. Can I ask you a question?"
    Akhmet:"Yeah, with respect. Go on, I'll try to answer."
    Jora:"Excuse my intrusion, didn't you support the Way by any chance before? Your manners are suitable."
    Way? Is that some split from The Many or that religion from Dead Space series?
    Akhmet:"No, sir, -sorry, I don't know. What's your name?"

    Jora:"I'm Georgy. Or simply Jora."
    Akhmet:"And I'm Akhmet."
    Jora:"Ah, you must be the sapper! People speak of you. They say you've been living in your House since the Beginning."
    Akhmet:"So it is, Jora. This is what you wanted to know?"
    Jora:"Not only. Listen, Akhmet. What about you? Do you want to change your life?"
    Akhmet:"What do you mean?"
    Jora:"I mean, break out from here. And settle somewhere in warm Greece. With a real passport and money to live."
    Akhmet:"Wow. And what do I need for it?"
    Jora:"You can help a good fight. But before I begin promise me to keep it a secret. Now listen. We want to clean the factory from Yankees. Moreover.. some of the locals have already joined, the serious people. Think for a while, then let me know your decision. We're leaving tomorrow but we'll visit you on our way back."


    Journal update:
    No, Zhirik, I’m out. I can’t heal you if you’re blind. If you’re going to seat and wait before they eventually kill you then I can’t seat nearby. I’ve got another plans.

    [​IMG]
    Send away? ok

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Akhmet is so pissed he run into abandoned ruined city.
    Doesn't look good.

    [​IMG]
    And that's why.
    It's full of stray dogs.

    [​IMG]
    Even with fast firing weapon you need to watch out and not bait more of them.

    [​IMG]
    Not gonna like, it's fun.
    Can't wait for the final.




    CUT!

    About time.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    There is not much to find here except this thing.
    Not that I take this since it slow down me and I already have ton of cash.

    Now there is last choice in the game. You can either take your guys with you
    or leave them.
    What it change? Your final fight can be done with them or you do all this shit alone.
    No, you can't avoid the fight.
    Have fun doing this thing alone. I double dare you.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    Examine machine gun here
    [​IMG]
    Then click on it



    [​IMG]
    :hmmm:

    [​IMG]
    Say hello to the Regulators. Which are like the guys we fought at rusreserve but with helmet.

    [​IMG]
    The crossed objects are special trucks. We need to blow them before time run out.
    Can do it.
    With slowed down game (about 5 times).
    What happen after that time? Even more troops come.
    Final will be the same (if you survive). So if you have not enough of the
    shooting - then nothing stop you.

    Firs one can be taken with machine gun.
    [​IMG]
    I don't even.

    [​IMG]
    That asshole is annoying. For some reason that object have good cover for him but also give good
    visibility. Doesn't work in both way.

    [​IMG]
    FFS more glitches appear.

    [​IMG]
    ARE
    YOU
    SERIOUS

    [​IMG]
    Fuck, I saved in bad moment.

    [​IMG]
    Close to the Vitek's position but managed to take him. Hope no more will come here.

    [​IMG]
    I don't even x2

    [​IMG]
    Nice move baby.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    He went there, and guess what - he survived.

    [​IMG]
    Nice cover.
    Few pixels beyond mg line of fire.

    [​IMG]
    Nice cab.

    [​IMG]
    You hear that.

    [​IMG]
    What is he doing? Where he throw it? He might hurt his mates before I do.

    [​IMG]
    Few bursts and so much enjoyment.

    [​IMG]
    :lol:
    I shoot his ass while trying to hit someone else.
    :laugh:

    [​IMG]
    Remaining opposition run somewhere in north-east, near last truck.

    [​IMG]
    Serb have less and less job.

    [​IMG]
    Can be more than that?

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    I have enough of this.

    [​IMG]
    Well protected ballsack I see.

    [​IMG]
    One to go.

    [​IMG]
    And done.
    Now the truck.

    [​IMG]
    Took the humve instead. :roll:

    [​IMG]
    ...and he lost his arm while doing it? Unbelievable bullshit.

    [​IMG]
    Serb is trying his best but hit another humve instead.
    FFS

    [​IMG]
    THERE YOU GO




    And that’s it, . Game didn’t crashed luckly.
    Song for goodbye and see ya! Maybe I find another material for my next LP. For now, I try to finish Brigade E5, last Apeiron game for me to finish.

    I made a huge mistake by choosing minus.com
    Almost all pictures were missing (after month or more). I dig out my old imgur account and stashed screenshots here.
    Now it should work (and will be, other LPs work years later).
    Some things might be missing (lines, dialogues, videos) and I tried to use less screenshots this time.
    Also - I removed my old lines, simply because broken engrish translation spoiled me (most of them was not fun or clever anyway).

    Now you have a chance to enjoy it again.

    Will you repair the Planet Alkatraz in a similar manner? You might not have a very high opinion of the game, but I think it is one of the better Russian RPGs out there (sans a horrible translation, which is kind of a genre staple at this point).

    Repair on the Planet Alcatraz is ongoing. Already fixed updates 1-3.
    Will do it asap because I want to do another LP in the winter time.

    It took longer than what I thought, but I finally managed to finish reading this LP. It was a bit hard to follow, sometimes it seemed like there was something missing in the narrative since the plot keeps jumping forward without warning, but I suppose the shoddy translation is the one to blame here. In any case, thank you for doing such detailed explanation about the average day in Russia this let's play. By the way, is there an alternate "bad ending" of some sort? Does the ending change if your characters die during the final battle or you do it solo?

    You do it solo.
    Good riddance fighting army alone.

    You don't see your teammates dying, but reading the journal is enough.

    From the temporal distance of 14 month I'd like to add some comments which hopefully are read by some frustrated players:

    1. Key binding

    The game allows to change hotkeys for certain functions. Time speedup and speeddown are simply not marked, obviously they forgot the english designations but deleted the russian allready. The file ..\whatever_game_directory\Marauder\keys.cfg (can be opened with notepad.exe) lists all relevant key bindings. The entry "ACT_TIME_ACCEL is doubled and the second has to be changed into "ACT_TIME_DECEL" (that wasn't too hard to guess, wasn't it?).

    Do NOT, I repeat do NOT bind Alt, Strg or Shift to other functions, even though the game might allow to do so. Those keys are bound to virtual functions, which cannot be activated otherwise!

    2. 40 mm Grenades

    The GP 30 underbarrel grenade launcher and the RG6 cannot be reloaded unless the file ..\whatever_game_directory\Marauder\INI\ITEMS\ADDONINFO (can be opened with notepad.exe) is altered. There are two lines with the argument "GrenadeType" (one for the GP30, one for the RG6). The value strings have to changed into "40 mm (rus.)". Some discussions only mention the value "40 mm", which is incorrect. They included both types of 40 mm nades (russian VOG and 40x47) and it took a whole 30 min for me to find out...

    This change can be done anytime. Savegames will not mess up.

    3. night vision

    Maybe some versions of the game where buggy concerning that feature, but the NVG works! Of course only the guy, who wears them can benefit from it. Unfortunately there is only one good oppotunity to use them: during the fight in the rocket base, you have to switch off the lights...

    4. Dog Skins

    The finding of dog skins seems to be random and maybe depending from the difficulty level. So the second last level (Ruined City) seems to provide the opportunity to fulfill the dogskin sidequest, if not allready happened. Achmet can pop off to the bazar before starting off with his charriot to the last battle. BTW it is interesting to have a look for Zhirik on bazar.

    5. positions

    Sometimes characters warp to other positions. Mostly Z- coordinates (heights) are concerned, charcters might just warp into another level of a building or a bridge instead of just taking the stairs. Very rarely characters melt through doors.

    6. Inventory

    As allready mentioned, there is a lot of baggage TETRIS. The military vest offers 4 fields to store things. The upper two 2x2 fields can be filled with anything the lower 2x3 fields can only hold anything EXCEPT armour, hats, helmets, jackets.

    Another hint:

    If the wife tells Achmet to bring some fish from bazar it might be a good idea to bring some...

    Could you add the title of the game in the videos so that a non-Codexer could have a chance of finding them?

    They are not my videos, they belong to some goon from SA.
