Has anyone ever come across or played Bid For Power?

http://bidforpower.planetquake.gamespy.com/index.html

Came across it randomly looking for a picture.
From the looks of it, seems like an attempt at ESF for Quake III. They had legal dramas and were forced to get rid of Dragonball content :S It didnt appear that popular in any case, only having 30 regular players or so.

Looks interesting and glossy though. I dont have QIII so i cant give it a go, but Im curious if anyone here has. Perhaps it could assist the dev team having a looksie, maybe not, who knows.

That game has been around longer than I've been using the internet. It looks alright, but plays horribly. The only thing I want ESF to take from the game is the ability to fly upside down.

It's something I've been suggesting for The Nix knows how long, but I'm given a different excuse for not having it every single time.

I was asking a week or so ago whether it could be done in the HL engine, loop-de-looping, barrel-rolling etc but noone ever replied. If the engine can support it, the only reason i can think of for not including it would be that it would make flying directly up and down much harder, but aim is the name of the game so wth. What reasons were you given?

1) Coding it would be too hard.

Status: Bull****. There was a cvar that allowed it in 1.1.

2) It wouldn't add anything to the game.

Status: Bull****. Dogfighting would actually be far more interesting and complex.

3) You're too awesome

Status: True, unfortunately.

Really, though, there's no reason not to have it unless it was completely broken.

There's a command that lets you do it, I'm sure of it because I've always used it in Team Fortress Classic, but I forgot what it was. Was probably a CL command.

I remember BFP, i used to play that alot. Last year the last time.
There were like dozens of addons/modelpacks for BFP.

Also some packs had extra shaders for effects.
I think i have maybe 10 packs or so.
It was fun.

It's not bad.

For the record, I'm under the impression that they made up the trouble with Funimation to have an excuse to end the mod.

Which would explain why ESF is still alive.

I thought that seemed suss. I mean, its making a profit of someone elses license which lands you in trouble right? I think it gave them a chance to include their own unique stuff without anchoring themselves to dragonball, but still retain that level of combat.

DBQ looked promising then they pulled what BFP did. Sadly that looked to be a rather decent DBZ mod. :(

That's definitely Ned's Trunks. Though, it seems they have permission:

Goku Posted Monday, June 7, 2004 by Zombie

It's Monday and we have a fresh update. Everyone's favorite Saiyan hero Goku. Thanks goes out to NeD for this one. Expect the SSJ version and more updates to come through the week. Also expect a special announcement before the end of the week.

Other way around. NeD made those models specifically for SoS. After they stopped updating, NeD gave ESF permission to use them as he didn't want the models to go to waste.
