    Update on the Leak **READ**

    I have good news! We figured out who is responsible for leaking the ESF video. It was a combination of the Force Pit, forum admins, beta testers, and the dev team. In case you haven't already figured it out, the forum posts by random "hackers" Force Pitters in disguise. They were helping lay a...

    OMG this is so brutal

    I understand that you're basing your comment off of short video snippets, but categorizing the new melee system as stop-and-go is incorrect. The new system was designed to mimic the feeling of 1.2.X simple melee. Combat is actually much quicker than previous versions. In fact, players are...

    Steam Half-Life Sale

    Steam is having a sale on Linux supported titles to celebrate the launch of their new Steam Linux client. In case you don't already have a copy of Half-life on Steam you can pick one up for $2.50. I'm not sure if this is the same for those outside the US. Maybe someone can confirm...

    Photoshop? Haha. The Photoshop is a lie. The developers use Gimp. That's why it takes so long to create all those fake images.

    Thanks for sharing this. I had no idea that PC Gamer was going to write an article.

    Any beta testers?

    There really isn't a list of specific requirements. When the team needs testers we'll usually look towards members of the forum that have been around a while and are an active participant in the community.

    It's kind of sad really...

    As I recall there was about a month delay for your last response too. The ESF team has had its fair share of run-ins with people that want to "help", but disappear half-way through a project. I took your last email to mean that you were going to orphan the unfinished model and wanted us to...

    Very cool. Do you know how it's going to be connected to the stomach?

    *Map* ESF_Buu

    That's up to the community. The map needs to be finished. If you feel like adding something to the map, go ahead.

    *Map* ESF_Buu

    The ESF team has always been made up of a small group of full-time developers as well as several part-time/transient developers. Right now we're finding ourselves shorthanded. We need artists! The team recognizes that there are many talented people floating around the forums and we thought it...

    Go to 2:16 in the video. It's explained there. Melee clashes are handled by a rock, paper, scissor style system. Bonus attacks trump all.

    ESF Release Schedule - Important

    Who said anything about June 8th? People keep spitting out some weird dates. The team hasn't announced a release date.

    New Gameplay Videos

    No offense taken. Right now it's like you are watching someone test drive a car instead of driving it yourself. The melee system was developed with both new and experienced players in mind. The basic tools are available to everyone, but skill can make a huge difference in how they are...

    ESF Release Schedule - Important

    That's a fair question. As it stands right now both the team and the community are close to being evenly divided. This makes the decision process a little bit more difficult than if the vote split had been something like 70/30. The team has been reading through the thread comments and both...

    ESF Release Schedule - Important

    In some ways it is easier to make maps for ESF with the new system. It can become more challenging once mappers try to add more advanced textures and shaders. If you're interested you can read through a draft version of the mapping guide.

    ESF Release Schedule - Important

    Hello ESF community! Lately, there has been a growing number of comments asking about the release date of ESF. Let me start by telling you that the team isn't hiding this information from you. We simply don't know o_o. As it stands ESF is built with time outside of the developer's normal day...
