Hi all

I've finished the patch for 'first day'. Did'nt take that long.
It comes as a non umod, downloadable from Fileplanet at 73 mb. I'm having a few technical issues with MediaFire just lately. :rolleyes:
The patch includes maps, textures, music and a single system file. Although the texture sets are slightly different than before they now include the detail sets for each one where appropriate.
Let me know what you think regards difficulty levels, MP and general improvements.

http://www.filefactory.com/file/18kw8l58ybz3

Improvements are:

Duel enforcers from the get go.
Far more health/ammo
More weapons
All fog in built up areas has been removed.
MP is included (think i've done it right!).
All instant death areas are cleaned up as far as i can tell.
more enemies for hard/unreal levels.
more enemies for MP (again, I hope it's done right!).
Less cinematics for whats coming next.
Lighting improvements.
Green goo and the pockets of fire dont instantly kill, but still not good for ya...Heh!
A few more bits and bobs that escape me.

Here are a few screens for the next pack that i've put together in the last few days.

Let me know if the links are good and i'll look forward to your comments. :)

I won't be able to comment on the patch for a while (stupid college), but that screenshot looks fantastic, especially the skybox.

Just for clarification: I assume it is not enough to just copy the files from this patch over into a fresh UT install with OldSkool Amp'd, is it?

Is it necessary first to install the original "First Day" mod (http://www.mediafire.com/?xfyqeyhyy0w), and then to "patch" it by copying over the files from this patch (overwriting the originals where needed)?

Put another way, is it accurate to say that this "patch" is not a stand-alone/self-sufficient installer, and that it requires that you have the original "First Day" mod already installed?

Thanks - can't wait to try it!

I never played past the first map on this, so great timing for a patch.
Just ban everyone

Thats right. You need to download the original and then just overwrite with the files in the patch.

Lol I was asking why all of a sudden it became hard compared to the previous version, then I realized I had THE LIMBO mutator on.
Playing the second map now, already activated the panel in the structure.

That's why it's called a patch. :shock: :B

I am most certainly going to free up some time next week. Sorry Waff, I've got an appointment with Xenome: First Day patched before trying the Open Beta. But no worries, this patched version should only take a couple of hours, 3 at the most with the Limbo mutator and on 115% speed (and saving disabled) :shake:

That's how I'm playing it (depends on your Limbo properties) except disabled saving because that's a no-no with Limbo.

I was joking :wink: . It's going to be the standard Unreal difficulty, and it's going to take a lot more than 3 hours.

Very excited about this! Gonna make time to play since I've decided to curb my MWLL addiction by only playing it once every other week at LAN parties instead of multiple times a night :P

Don't worry, that's still a LOT of stuff left to do there (I always underestimate how much effort it takes to make any sort of release these days). I might not be ready until early October at this rate.

Just a personal thing here. I'd recommend that, with this patch, you also include a link to the thread that contains the original's download link(s) for convenience. Otherwise, I'm going to give First Day another good playthrough. Great work!

Sounds like some good news. I remember enjoying Xenome but various problems got in the way and was never able to complete it.

I would personally recommend putting out an updated version with the patch already applied.
