Cool new FOSS multiplayer FPS (Terminal-Overload)

#1
http://www.terminal-overload.org/

Released their first alpha a few days ago, and you might know its (non-FOSS) predecessor Revenge of the Cats:Ethernet.

Runs on Linux and Windows. Contributers very welcome.

It's already a quite playable team-based multiplayer game. You have to capture zones and it is a bit Tribes like.

Does it have Instagib?

Luckily no, but cool disk weapons like in tron :p

Here is a vid with some gameplay (actually from RotC:Ethernet but it is more or less the same):

And an explanation of gameplay:

Edit: The home-page linked in the OP has a video of the actual 0.1 FOSS version.

It's a totally open development model, but so far it is mainly fr1tz working on it (the original creator), but I helped set up a forum: http://forum.freegamedev.net/viewforum.php?f=87 (I'm Julius other there) and was instrumental at convincing him to run the original successful indiegogo campaign. Now that the first alpha is out, I have also started looking at contributing some models and other art assets.

you should probably take a look at the original RotC to get an idea Tongue

Fly into the area controlled by your team (same color as your etherform = "fireball") and press the left mouse button to switch to normal FPS mode.

I guess a small getting started tutorial would be good Wink

Is this still there? I can't access terminal-overload.org and it seems like the forum doesn't exists on my side: ethernet.wasted.ch doesn't work either
How to Englich?

The freegamedev.net forums are shortly offline since our "founder" forgot to renew the domain... terminal-overload.org works over here though. Forums should be also back up within a few days at most.

Edit: all should work again now.

Shit I was suppose to set up a public server, my bad. I'll see if I remember to this week end although the game is not build to run with out a graphical environment. I tested out Xvfb but even though it say its installed when I try to run a test session the os just tell me the Xvfb is not installed. Weird...

Are you trying to recruit people from the xonotic team?? Tongue

Tell fr1tz we're looking for engine devs.

* OpenSource Game Developers Exchange *

poVoq: sounds appealing! I've done some experiments with dynamic music and that's something I'd like to investigate further.

New website and recent new release (0.3.1). Join a play-session in about an hour Wink
Now supports charged jumps as a cool new game-play mechanic.

I have some problems in Linux with it like changing the weapons. Apparently is not implemented very well vs windows plus I can't connect in windows anymore. Say my client doesn't match server version or server art etc...

My server is still running.

Yes input is a bit flaky under Linux, I think fr1tz just merged from upstream Torque3D, so hopefully this will get a bit better in the next version. If someone is experienced with SDL2 under Linux help is also appreciated, see: https://github.com/fr1tz/terminal-overload/issues/24

Otherwise, make sure your windows version really is 0.3.1 as 0.3 still uses the old master-server. If that isn't the issue, please report the bug here: https://github.com/fr1tz/terminal-overload/issues
