Nice! I'll grab the trailer and a few screenies later. (Right now my line is busy d/l'ing the RtCW test. :))

One question, ... just curious:

Alien Legion currently utilizes a heavily modified Unreal Tournament Engine that we've enhanced with particle engines, visual effects engines and new artificial intelligence systems.

What built of the U engine is the basis of your work? The latest builts have particle effects and all that fancy stuff out of the box.

To my knowledge, one of the Particle systems we are useing are the one used by the ASMD combo attack and Redeemer in UT, and two new. The two new ones you can read about on the url i posted :)

The last real basis in terms of Unreal Engine tech versions is 432, the same 432 that you can download off file planet :) Our tech necessiates we have our own version now however :)

try 436 :D




Alien Legion looks really really great, and you got some cool new tech in there :)

The lensflare screenshot at http://www.alien-legion.com/tech.html appears to be broken for me, and also all the large picture versions, could that be fixed?

Nice! I'd never heard of this before. Is it going retail? Or is it a TC that you'll be able to download? Looks very well-done.

The screenshots on the tech page were just placeholders (if you look at the URL it points to places like disney.rty that dont exist). I've removed them but they'll come back

our coding is done by Elamental and Fish Face, both of the UT community at one point or another. These two are the best programmers in the community, bar none.

We're awflly happy with the way AL turned out but we're gonna be inciting some big changes in it soon to make it more competative :)

lets face it a year of U2, DNF, Doom 3, Quake 4, Thief 3 and DX2 is like going through a field of landminds in a cement roller.

Download the movie. thats a good summary of some alien legion stuff although i wish we could show more tech.

thanks for your feedback :)
