Post by: Leviathan on January 20, 2015, 05:38:06 PM
Hi all

Have been checking out YouTube and there are a surprising number of videos about Outpost 2 and even some for Outpost 1 :)

I have opened a channel and will be uploading videos of Outpost 2 games/content starting with the old OPU videos.

Also be sure to check out NTCS channel if you are looking for Outpost videos, they have some recent videos.
New Terran Command Site YouTube (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCll2ylRbQe190L-M2XWnP5A)

Also YouTube's has auto-generated a channel using it's video discovery system which is a good start to find content:

Some really cool news, a YouTuber named JayborinoPlays (448 subscribers) has started a play through of Outpost 2 ! He started 29th Jan. He does play through of games and has posted many videos. Would be great if this helps get some new users interested in the game. Be sure to like and support his videos/channel.

Jayborino 5 missions in now to Eden Campaign. I actually forgot about some of the building in OP2, been so long since I played single player!

Lol, that guy has some pretty funny color commentary.

I just uploaded a video of one of the first times I played Caught in the Crossfire II:

That's not CCF2.

Oh... I thought it was CCF2 alpha, but this was back in 2011 so I could very well be wrong.  :P  Is it CCF1?

Post by: Sirbomber on April 08, 2015, 04:34:34 PM
Yes.  A very incomplete CCF2 can be found somewhere but it's not worth looking for.  One of these days we might finish it up and release it.

Right, it was essentially a glorified demo for all these gameplay hacks I made, like the new blight mechanics, DIRT auto-repair, etc. Unfortunately the chokepoint-happy nature of the map was a nightmare on OP2's pathfinder, making the game unplayable and making it impossible to test/balance the AI when its units would often but inconsistently get stuck. I experimented with making a wrapper DLL for CCF1 to tack on all of CCF2's new gameplay mechanics on top of it, but OP2's netplay layer doesn't play along that well with the "mission DLL wrapper for another mission DLL" concept and it can desync in MP randomly.

You could perhaps solve some of the pathfinding issue by setting the lower volcano to erupt at a later stage - that way there is less of a choke point for the enemy AI.

Yeah, I tried that, which reduced the probability of its units getting stuck, but not by much. I'd have to do the dirty work of cleaning up the map in the editor to make a lot of the chokepoints less complex. Alternatively, replace OP2's pathfinder with a better one based on a graph search like D* Lite, or some other A* variant, which I actually was looking into at some point; but, the pathfinder code disassembly isn't well-documented, and I don't know which function exactly is OP2's graph search algorithm, nor which one generates the graph to begin with (I'm assuming it's not using the raw map data and uses a quadtree or similar). Which would be cool, and way more work than just trying to clean up the map. :P Compared to StarCraft 1's pathfinder (which came out 6 months after OP2), we should be glad with what we have, funnily enough.

Have updated my post with links to all his videos. Jayborino has played through the two Campaigns and Eden Starship Colony Game and finished his series of videos there.

I hope you will be finishing and releasing it Sirbomber :)

Have uploaded 8 casted games. I took a shot at casting some games. Zhall did the first one and myself the other 7:
Casted Match - Leviathan VS Paco - 2005-06-29 (https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLbvuoaOE8O5sjZjQiY1X8yPUsOlvuOzqf)

Also there are 6 games from February of me vs 9ball. I hope to do some more games and casting this year :D
