All your support warms out hearts

We've had a lot of work to take care of in the last half year, doing outsourced projects and just in general, working to get money and experience.

Every time we saw you guys still had interest in the project after all this time, we tried to squeeze in some time into our schedule to work on it. It still has control issues, and the multiplayer still only works in local mode and is unstable. We need to put in a lot more time and energy to make it presentable. There are however some very minor, experimental updates we can show off.

With some tinkering we've made the foliage move according to the in-game wind setting.

It's far from finished, especially around the trees, but this allows foliage to react to guns and blast waves.

Also, with some fine tuning and post process effects, we've made a pretty cool shadow effect. Every layer casts a shadow onto the ones that are farther back.

The GIFs are kind of garbage in quality, but believe us, it looks good.

Towards the end of summer, we'll probably have more time to work on the project. As long as there are still people looking forward to it, we'll do the best we can!

Thank you for the support.

Good to know you're still working on this, thanks for the update too!

Foliage reacting to the wind of guns/bullets is awesome and something I've never heard of before, are there any other games that do this?

Haha, that eyecandy looks very modern game-ish. I'd love to see it react to gunfire and fast movement like on games such as Ori.

In addition to the moving foliage, can you also add waves to water when jumped into? It would look awesome in my opinion.

Question Linux support?

Is there an official or unrealengine.com forums page of the project? I kinda remember such page at unrealengine.com forums but couldn't find it now. As the project uses Unreal Engine 4 which is cross-platform, will there be GNU/Linux, macOS and Android support? If yes, please use SDL2 to make things easier for you. Thank you, good luck!

Wow, it's been a while!

We've got a day job and we're working full-time in Unreal Engine 4, so this little project sadly doesn't get too much attention from us.
Not that we don't want to continue it, it's just that we have a lot of things going on in our life.

But time after time we look at the project and think about what we could do with it.
Last time I created a chunk of one of the castle maps.



I know it's not much, but if we have some time, we'll work on it!

I'm not sure what you did to Castle, but I like it. Some kind of lighting effect I think? And heightened contrast? Looks great on those screenshots, at least.

It's mostly just post process effects.
I saturated it, toned down the contrast, gave it a bit of a brown tone and added a lot of ambient occulusion.
Then threw in some colorised atmospheric fog and lights with temperature for the sake of the atmosphere.
It's easy to do things like that in Unreal 4, even during runtime, so these settings can change based on the enviromental differences even in the same level.

Great job

Wow, this really looks amazing guys! Great job so far, and please don't let it fade away, keep working on it whenever you can spare some time.
Also, I believe you could save tons of time if you'd invest a little effort into a script that could read the original level files and import the data in UE so you wouldn't have to recreate the levels by hand. There's another jazz2 remake project on github called "Project Carrot" (https://github.com/soulweaver91/project-carrot) that does just that (although in C++), so you could maybe check it out to at least least understand the file format from it and how to read it.
Good luck and I really hope to see this finished, you did a great job so far!

You have to compile it with visual studio if you want to run it, but I was thinking that looking at the code will help you understand the file format and write your own script to import levels into UE

Also, you can find some demos of that project on youtube, just search project carrot.

Seems like not much activity has gone on in the last few months. Not to nag, but I would enjoy to see this project a bit more, although I understand all your reasons for not spending as much time on it. It would be better for you to continue with your job than to spend time on this project with no conceivable benefits.

Hey Carpaintergeril, we've been wondering what's going on with your project? Any progress to report? Hopefully it's still in the works!

Ps Sorry for resurrecting an old topic, but it's been a while and I hope for some news..
