Weekly Halo Update

It’s that time of the week again and apparently bungie has been teaching jackals how to use guns.

  • Chris Butcher continued to solidify the framerate and also taught the Jackals to use the overcharger on their plasma pistols. The Bear made vehicle-on-vehicle collisions work nicely. Jason insisted that I refrain from naming the CD he was listening to.
  • Tons of little graphical fixes...explosions look better, the pistol zoom now has the same nifty blurring effect as the sniper zoom, skies on many missions were improved and there’s a slew of geometry fixes just about everywhere you look. Other artists are adding detail to the levels with decals and objects...look for the bulletin board.
  • We’re doing a second and in some cases third pass on multiplayer levels and textures, trying to make things look and play better. Multiplayer-specific sounds ("Red Team has your flag" and so forth) are now hooked up.
  • Tyson claims to have "subjected a voice actor to a horrible fiery death." Unfortunately I can’t talk about the details until the statute of limitations runs out.
  • But as usual that’s not all, click here to read the rest!
