<p>Welcome to our fourth update! We have a busy agenda for today. We will be discussing the Forum Competition, the New Recruit, an Update Recap, a Status Update, and an image that has been added to the Gallery.<br /><br /><b>Forum Competition</b><br />The Forum Competition has been extended for two more weeks.<br /><br /><b>New Recruit</b><br />This week we had a new member join the team. His name is Zero-SFX. He will be helping Freedom with the audio and music.<br /><br /><b>Updates Recap</b><br />Here is a video of what's been shown in the past 3 weeks.</p>
<p><object width="432" height="340"><param name="movie" value="http://www.moddb.com/media/embed/108026"></param><param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param><param name="allowfullscreen" value="true"></param><embed src="http://www.moddb.com/media/embed/108026" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" allowfullscreen="true" width="432" height="340"></embed></object><br /><a href="http://www.moddb.com/mods/earths-special-forces/videos/updates-1-3-recap">Earths Special Forces Mod for Half-Life Updates 1-3 Recap video - Mod DB</a><br /><br /><br /><b>Status Update</b><br />The coders have been hard at work this week. The HUD font has been changed so that it scales properly with the HUD. A major crash bug has been fixed, along with some minor bugs. The Beam Head sizes are now reduced. We have added a new feature to the Power Struggles. If you run out of Ki, you will be able to convert Stamina to Ki so the Power Struggle can last longer.<br /><br /><b>Gallery</b><br />An image has been added to the Models gallery. <a href="http://esf.gamers-desire.de/gallery2/main.php?g2_view=core.DownloadItem&amp;g2_itemId=2 73">Check it out</a>!</p>

You are now able to edit or add FX features. That means you can create your own particle effects, add sounds, and animations. You're also able to create your own transform effect!</span></p><p><br />Sorry for the delay guys. See you on Halloween for a special update!
