View Full Version : ESF in its own Engine?

When the Half-life full source code comes out, would the coders in esf actually be able to make this game its own running engine, instead of relying on half-life?

What i mean is would ESF be a separate game from half-life period? like no need to get half-life or anything? make maps, animations, graphics as great a they want? Bump Mapping would be great! :yes: :D

i know even with the full source code there will still be limitations (yes there will) like it would never reach anything like Doom 3. or HL2

i dont think valve will release the sourcecode for hl in the near future since its still the most played online game (with mods).
but if they do, i'd like the idea

Nice idea, but I doubt by the time the source code is released that ESF will care enough.

I believe the team would use HL to much greater effect if they had the full source code.

I think Joe would just for the sport of it. I mean, think of how many annoying "workarounds" Joe must've had to use to make the engine do what it does anyway...

Imagine an engine where they disabled scripting? That'll be the day.

yeah, but the question is could they create the engine?

not that i am doubting their skill but creating esfs own engine would take a hell of a long time

I wouldn't worry about it... By the time the HL engine is open source, ESF will be long gone ^_^

HL could suprise you, or the life of ESF at that, and i dont think it would take that long, just redirect all the files it looks for and copy the files it uses from half like would probably be an easy way. But i dont know anything about coding, although id like to learn just noone ever shows me where im at... :cry:

Edit: by the way joe, Love the Narudo avatar! :yes:

I dont think it really matters if ESF lives longer then I expect, since I'll be gone by then :-P
Thanks for the compliment though ^_^

That sucks, Joe. When you leave the mod, that will be the end of it, I'm pretty sure.

Does this mean that ESF will be dead by the end of this year?

esf i heard was to die soon which isn't good since i was expecting more transformations, and... i dunno... doesn't matter to me much anymore anyhow. I don't play esf ever cause the change in melee.

This thread isn't about whether you like Naruto or not, and your also violating the vulgar language filter, so the warning stands.

doesn't matter, if you want to be a ****, then you have to give RevenTrunks a warning too for going off topic. I stayed on topic, but i stated something in my opinion, quit argueing with me.
