Image Description, by Michi

These are some early Beta-Screenshots from an upcoming trailer which will be introducing our game.

Some of the currently supported features:
  • advanced particle system to create all kinds of particle effects
  • realistic skydome
  • layered fog
  • weather effects like: lightnings, rain, snow…
  • halos & lens flare effects
  • dynamic lightning
  • vertex shaders
  • multi texturing for lightmaps & simulated caustics
  • …
  • The tool we programed to create the effects is also able to import complete Lightwav Scenes and convert them into our own format.

    Screenshots from this tool will be coming up soon…at least we hope so :-)

    Anyway, thats it for now ,-)

    Best regards,
    David & Michael

    ATTEAM is based in Vienna (Austria)

    IIRC There's complete documentation on the Newtek-site;
    Scenefiles are terribly easy to read since they're just textfiles;
    LWO (Objects) are the usual chunky IFF's so aren't that hard to load either.


    January 14, 2002, 05:34 AM

    I really do not know but it's not that hard to do it without tutorials... Just look into the .lws files... :-)

    No, he just needs to stop lying on his back and look at the IOTD :o)

    Ok, I'll do that! =)


    January 14, 2002, 06:13 AM

    The LWS-files won't tell you how to read the (binary) LWO files :)


    January 14, 2002, 06:16 AM

    maybe this link can help you:

    there are also some lwo/lws-file specifications on web:

    It means that we didnt use just a plane for clouds and sky.
    We used 2 blending cloud layers and a spherical skydome for gradient colored sky.

    Nice job :-)

    Hum ... What are your Specs?

    and the others should be burnt on public place!! ( with those still using voodoo1 ) ^___^


    January 14, 2002, 08:35 AM

    That's hard but fair }:->

    William Dahlberg - Check out for info on Lightwave models, the format really is quite straight forward.

    Very nice looking screenshot! Particles!!! More particles!!! Everyone loves particles!!!

    Little talk about the technology behind the engine though... Good demonstration of your Lightwave skills btw *g*


    January 14, 2002, 10:05 AM

    Nice !

    Seems the particles animation at the entrance are the same on each sides of the door ?


    January 14, 2002, 10:35 AM

    Yes, we did that cause of memory and speed purpose.


    January 14, 2002, 10:50 AM

    Quite some moody scenery there, although the graveyard looks too 'clean' ... a few withered trees belong there ... and the moon peeking through the clouds...

    Oh, the skulls kinda remind me of Undying!

    oooo, dark and kreepy... I like the scenario, and the flames are cool, I meen hot :-) particles also, or billboards? They look too nice for bilboards, but since this is a screenshot its hard to see..

    Do does skulls have to be followed by that floorescent green stuff? :-)


    January 14, 2002, 11:02 AM

    Athlon 1.4Ghz, 1Gig RAM, Gforce3 Ti500 at 1280x1024 32Bit.
    Athlon 1600+, 512MB RAM, Gforce2 GTS at 1280x1024 32Bit, score is 10-20 frames lower.

    We dont make use of pixel and vertex shaders yet, but it should make a slight difference;-)


    January 14, 2002, 11:20 AM

    u could have 2 or 3 particle system entity for the same purpose (torch), like this it would look better...Well nice anyway


    January 14, 2002, 11:26 AM

    Both will be included into the final demo version... There will be trees and there will be a moon and maybe some otehr planets :-)
    So watch out for the final version which will be coming next week (i hope :-))


    January 14, 2002, 11:28 AM

    Those are Particles :-)

    Yes, the skulls have to be followed by those green stuff ,-) But believe me it's looking fine (in the final version)... The scrennshot here where done during the first test using the skull object as particle source...
