The whole 'real' first person stuff is cool but beyond what we'll be wanting to do for P2 as an update at this point, but I agree it's cool and when we get around to a new P game or a P2 remake or whatever, that will be something I push for.
As for Shadows in P2, we actually have that up and working and they are fully dynamic and look great, the problem being it hits the frame rate pretty hard (probably 20 less FPS with them enabled). Sadly the advancements in computer power over the last 12 years have not benefited Unreal engine 2 as much as we would have hoped, as it's a very CPU based engine, which is not multithreaded. We are still at the point where to run P2 at a solid 60 PC you need at least 3.0 GHz per core (even my 2.8 CPU only just gets there), so adding the shadows would push that up to probably 3.5 which is a real top end CPU. We might include it as an option for a future patch, but would have to give a warning that it has a very high CPU requirement to run well.
It's a shame because newer versions of Unreal 2 are vastly more optimized than the one we are using, but we don't have access to that source code and it would not be worth our time to try and improve it all ourselves at this point so we just work with what we have. It's certainly frustrating to be working with such an old engine and game and have to be so concerted about these things that's for sure
If you want to avoid any controversy these days, don't have a single female NPC you can kill or is there as 'background dressing' or you'll be branded misogynistic.
In fact, I'd just leave women out of your game entirely. You can have one as the main protagonist, just make sure she's not at all attractive.

Ah, all things considered I thought the movie was okay, and in all honestly no one else would have wanted to do the movie, so it was this or nothing, POSTAL was at the time very unknown and cult, it's only since the Steam release we've gain an impressive amount of attention (even if the gaming press still totally ignore it). There was still quite a bit of fan service in the movie, and Gary would have been in it but was not available at the time.
Go grab some money from the area behind the window of RWS building.
You could argue that it's rightfully the dudes redundancy pay that Vince skimped out on.
P2 and AW Support / Re: The "Give you all weapon cheat" doesn't give you all the weapons + Tora Bora + M« on: August 31, 2014, 09:51:28 AM »
You only get those weapons with the cheat after you have originally found them, hence why you could not get them via a cheat before but you can now.
It's been so long since I played Tora Bora I'd not know how to help you out with that yet, although I guess soon we'll be digging around that map again for the Paradise Lost DLC.
