Re: Midnight Sun (BF2 map conversion for DC)

Some of my old maps for BF242 used TGA format for lightmaps and was likely the source of a lot of lag on older machines. All my maps now use DDS DXT1 with mipmaps which improves performance a lot. I haven't tested these maps on an old PC, but I do recall testing an older map like DC Sea Rigs that I ...

Re: Midnight Sun (BF2 map conversion for DC)

Oh. That's something I wouldn't know then. If they do end up on the EA117 server, it won't be by me, so I wouldn't be the person to ask about this. :P

As of right now there is no other servers (that I know of) that is playing these new maps.

Re: Midnight Sun (BF2 map conversion for DC)

I don't understand the question...What server? Which version of the game? What place in the country? :P I have play tested the maps long enough to know they should work. Lately have spent more time working on mods then playing them actually. :P As far as I know there isn't a server hosting these map...

Re: Midnight Sun (BF2 map conversion for DC)

Thanks for spotting that. I left out the file extension in the URL half of the bbcode by mistake. I corrected it now so It should work. ;)

Midnight Sun (BF2 map conversion for DC)

This map is another conversion from BF2. This like Operation Road Rage is a map for Desert Combat. :D A new addition is the road meshes which I created using the line tool in 3DS Max. (I used line tool + sweep modifier, then after it's a mesh and UVMapped, I used the conform tool in the compound obj...

Re: BF2 Operation: Road Rage ported to Desert Combat

This map isn't for the BF242 mod and is a new conversion. It should not lag anywhere near as much as that mod used to. This map is a standalone map for Desert Combat. Everything you see there comes built into the same map rfa and only requires that you have DesertCombat installed. :D The lightmaps f...

Re: BF2 Operation: Road Rage ported to Desert Combat

You forgot the video I made. It would help preview the map: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x08RD3J3pzc Full on BF2 map conversion and with out much loss of detail. It's muliplayer compatible and includes alternate combat area sizes for CTF/TDM game modes. It also has full COOP/Singleplayer support. ...
