The Developer Insight will bring to light some of the developer commentary that we often miss in multiplayer mods. It will consist of bringing specific mod developers into a play test of their own creation. While playing through the mod the developers can comment on whatever they want! For instance, a mapper can explain how he mapped a very intricate section of the map or a coder can talk about what is really going on behind the scenes. This experience will be recorded (both audio and video) for the listeners and fans of Podcast 17 to watch later.
The buck doesn’t stop there! Fans of Podcast 17 can also take part in the Developer Insight by joining in on the play test! Each developer insight will have posted details on how YOU, the fan, can participate.
This weeks developer insight is with Zombie Mod: Source! Podcast 17 is glad to continue our relationships with Zombie Mod: Source and look forward to sharing some development features with the community! Note: You must have Zombie Mod Version 1.30!!! If you don’t have it you can download 1.20 full client then the 1.30 patch.
This weeks Dev-Insight will take place Saturday, May 23rd, at 20:00 (8:00) Eastern Standard Time, New York and eastern North America. For more details on what time this is in your timezone head on over to the World Clock Time Converter.
