I think Jynx needs to return his headset, voice was amplified and increased the swearing alot more. Must be broken! or maybe it was just the topic
Congrats to Tristan for winning the first segment of the L4D2 Modscon. I just thought I'd like to comment on your comments regarding this competition and what was discussed regarding entries (or lack of).
I can only speak for myself, but I did not have L4D2 when competition was announced and only made the decision to purchased the Valve pack from Steam about a month before the competition end date for segment 1.
Then as I had never used hammer before had to start using the editor and learning its restrictions! Now that I have that under control, I can actually make a map
Sounds like the other entrants had some great ideas and with what Tristan said regarding those two windows, I totally agree as I tried putting them in too. Hammer does really not like it. To map in hammer the environment appears it has to be very square! It doesn't like diagonals and curves.
Due to my freshness with hammer/L4D2, the idea I wanted to do was too big/complicated (I always do that with any map, think too big go to complicated) and found I could not do what I wanted.
After playing the normal L4D2 maps, Tristans map it has definatly help me move forward and I intend to enter 'something'!
I was not waiting for segment 2, I just did not have time!
Cheesy excuse I know
Good Luck for everyone else
