GEX Patch 5b: 03-01-13

Welcome back to GoldenEye X! Our focus this release has been adjusting and correcting things previously problematic or flawed in patch 5a and prior. A huge number of weapons have had their firing rates modified to match (when comparing side-by-side on console) the original guns in GE007. Some may not be as noticeable, but others like the Sniper Rifle and Cougar Magnum should stand out. Tons of audio effects have been replaced, making the game sound much more like how it should. Be it subtle weapon use effects (such as planting a mine or slashing with a knife), to explosions, and even ricochets. Your ammunition and function displays are also using a new colour scheme; yellow/orange for ammo, and green/cyan for functions. Door operation speeds in many VR levels are now set to their proper values. You'll find that Simulants are now much better at navigating the Caverns map, as well. Brand new intro music and logo are both featured at the start of the game. An optimized version of Cradle is the only new addition to the levels list. Though due to its poor performance with many players and Sims participating all together in a match, this may not remain in future patches. Two bonus weapons are available for use in both VR mode and missions. The first is the Seeker (Perfect Dark's Slayer). This launchers primary function is a Homing Missile. Once you've put your aimer over a target, the missile fired should lock onto them. And although not supported via emulation, the secondary function is the Guided Missile. After you press the fire button, your view switches to that of the projectile. The other weapon is a personal drone gun. Simply pick one up, select it from your inventory (either through the quick-menu or pause inventory screen), and deploy it where you need automatic defenses for yourself and your team. There are many other details we won't get into in depth, but a list has been included below. As always, our deepest appreciation goes out to those who've continued to follow this mod. Your support keeps us going.

Known Bugs / Glitches...

Eyelid Doors in Caverns:
Simulants, as of patch 5b, are now perfectly capable of using the eyelid and iris doors in those hexagonal walkways. However, there is a glitch in Perfect Dark that prevents Sims from being able to shoot at opponents through an opening vertical door until it has come to a full stop. This gives human players an unfair advantage against them. It's up to you how you use this knowledge.

Simulants:
Since the first release, every map has been fitted with an AI Path Network. This means that Simulants can freely roam the stages. Also, extensions and drops have been worked into most levels, improving Sim navigation. They are also much smarter when it comes to weapon choice and utlization.

Shotgun:
There is a multiplier value that increases the damage a Shotgun causes to other characters when used by a Simulant. Humans are capable of firing five pellets at a time, but Sims only fire one. This value evens the odds a little more for your computer controlled opponents. Due to PD only having a single shotgun by default, we had to allow for a second one. However, because of an issue that incorporating a second multiplier caused (kills not counting in mission campaign), we've had to remove the multiplier from the regular Shotgun. Unless we can fix this, only the Automatic Shotgun will deal out more damage when in the hands of a Simulant.

Martin Hollis, 008 Simulant Partner:
Currently has female voice files during missions. These will need to be replaced with male samples.

Headers/Dividers:
Because we wanted to have everything (or mostly everything) unlocked from the start of the game for new users, some of the menu headers and dividers may be missing. They rely on certain flags to be set in order to be shown. It should be fixed everywhere, but don't be surprised if something seems off.

Hangar Information PC:
The computer stationed in the Carrington Institute hangar will often crash the game. If you attempt to preview any of the files stored on the PC, the gameplay may freeze and you'll be forced to restart. We're not sure why this happens at this time, so you'll just have to avoid it for now.

This is great! It's true that I don't notice many of the changes, as so many are 'under the hood' (or at least too minor for someone as unobservant as me), but the changes I do see are great, and I think the Cradle level is a great addition. It does seem a little strange, though, having the Slayer (sorry, the Seeker) in Bond matches, as I don't think that fits the Bond universe, though the Drone Gun does. Not that I'm complaining, since the theme of Goldeneye X's multiplayer (like that of Perfect Dark), is let-the-player-choose-what-(s)he-likes, so I don't have to include something in a match, if I don't want to (except in the Assignments, which is fair enough, as they are meant to challenge you as widely as possible). The new colour scheme for the ammo counter etc is very good too, and differentiates it from PD's.

Sadly, I haven't yet seen the new opening sequence, as my TV just goes black for Goldeneye X's intro (my PAL TV doesn't display the resolution that PD (U) v1.1 uses for it's boot up sequence, I use an Everdrive to play Goldeneye X, so I can run NTSC games on my PAL N64 and TV, but a few games cause the screen to go pure black when booting up), but I saw the video, so I know what I'm missing.

One thing though - please keep the Cradle multiplayer level. It's not the best level ever, by any means, but it's OK, and it's different enough to alll of the others to merit it's place in the game. Even aesthetically it's different from the other Goldeneye multiplayer levels (nice to be in the open air for a change Laughing ) which are mostly indoors, but it's good that one map concentrates so much on sniping (not for me, as I don't like sniping, but others do, and I like the Cradle with medium range weapons instead). Even if you keep it in Goldeneye X, but don't put it in any Assignments, that would be fine. But please don't get rid of it, keep it in for those who want to play on it (I will, not too often, but I will).

Anyway, thanks for this release, I'm really pleased with it (and I needed cheering up, after Alien: Colonial Marines being so disappointing, BTW), and I look forward to seeing what you have lined up for GEX's single player campaign!

That's strange, NTSC and PAL PD both use the same resolution for the title sequence (576x480), I wouldn't think there'd be any difference between them outside of the resolution/refresh rate the console outputs them at.

Wonderful to see how far this project has come. Played through half of the assignments today, using stolen's mouse ejector so they were probably a bit too easy. I agree Cradle should stay, I'm sure Rare definitely wanted that one in the original, it's where the final showdown took place!

Good job!

Wasn't the alternative title screen supposed to be the default one? I have only tried the cloudless patch, but it kept showing the first level cinematic until I changed it in the options.

I'm with the ones that want Cradle staying. I think the more content the better.
Only if you are short of spots for new levels (like backzones) you should think of removing Cradle. And even then I'm sure a lot of people would prefer Cradle over the backzone of an existing level. Heh, I even think this one is more interesting than Train.
Are there any issues regarding Cradle that we aren't aware of?

Also, I tried to beat the game to see the credits and I couldn't . There're a lot of jungle plants in the last room that block the view to the statue. And even if I shoot it, it seems that the shield won't let me damage it. Perhaps having the Skedar King death is related, hehe.


Thanks a lot for the new release.

Oh I think this was missed in the notes. I believe it will only default to the new title if it is a new save. Otherwise the toggle will be unlocked and just manually change it if using old save to be on.

Did the patching procedure. Created a brand new save file and character profile so I was able to see the brand new introduction screen and I want to say it is AWESOME! Exactly how it should be from now on. The new music for the intro fits as well cause now it makes the mod feel like it's own video game. While I haven't explored much I mostly wanted to see if the corrections that I put out for the Grenade Launcher were made and they are in! Smile

However, I do want to note these glitches that I found just recently in v5a and have NOW checked with v5b (by the way I patched up the cloudless version) and they are still current on the following maps in VR. I call this the "weapon and ammunition box easy grab glitch". On the following maps: Complex, Facility, Library, Stack, Frigate, and Citadel there are weapon props and ammo boxes elevated on a high platform that can be easily attained by simply walking or running underneath a high elevated platform where they lie on. In Frigate and Citadel they are in one location on the map but on the original Goldeneye maps Complex, Facility, Stack, and Library they are in more than one location. Can this be fixed for 5c and possibly prevent this error from happening if any future maps are released?

Also would it be too much just to rename Free for all's "Combat" to "Normal" instead? Every time I see the word 'combat' show in the beginning of a showdown I feel like I'm playing Mortal Kombat or something. Please change this back to normal.

Another thing I want to mention is the start menu during VR. Can the sound of the pause selection and/or 'end game' selection change to the watch sound effect if possible?

For v5c will you be working on fixing the POV of Oddjob and Jaws? Also will you check and test out the VR Soundtracks in GE:X and see how "off" they sound from the original GoldenEye game?

By the way, I'm with Kerr Avon and Sogun with the Cradle. Please make this map be a mainstay for the reasons Kerr Avon mentioned above. It makes the sniper rifle weapon a lot more useful in VR mode and it gives a different variety to the VR gameplay regardless of how the simulants function on it. Besides players don't ALWAYS have to add simulants to every game they setup now do they. Wink

Congratulations on yet another great mod upgrade. Love the new intro. More to explore! Very Happy

I was noticing the Surface 2 music track is muffled out to where you can't hear the bass in it. It sounds like someone just disconnected everything but the treble speakers. Wink. Really kills MY FAVORITE track Sad. Just thought Id mention it. Good job even making this stuff work bro! Wink. Multi

Checked the new patch out today and I must say l love it. Really liked the new intro, the music really matches the game although the end of the music sounds alittle to out of place. The tone of the music seems a bit too high like a old spectrum game or commodor 64 track (a little too retro for me). But I don't want to rain on anyones parade its still really good maybe its just me and it will grow on me. Not used to hearing anything so different being added, still a great addition.

The new sound effects are alot more noticable than I thought they would be and make the experience even better and closer to the original goldeneye.

The slayer rocket and drone gun I also love. Havn't played any games with my friends yet but just messed around with them on my own and know their going to be a blast.

As for the cradle please don't remove it, its very different from the other levels and great for snipers and even pistols on licence to kill. Definatly should stay.

One thing I do miss (prob the only one) is the lift music being removed. Always thought it was funny playing loads of tense games of goldeneye then suddenly at random the lift music would come on and it always made me and my friends laugh out loud. Another one of those little goldeney memories and I would hate to see it left out in future.

Again an excellent job all round and a really achievemt to all who are involved wish I had half that talent and skill, keep up the good work.

Now I can't wait for you to start on the single player missions, but I expect they are going to take a hell of alot of work and time but I know everyones up for the job and definatly have the skill.
Now I off to play one of the best modds ever.

The new intro music is the one from the movie, for those who don't know about it.

I forgot to mention this and the new intro logos. It really feels like GEX will be a new thing.

This patch 5B fascinated me, especially the conversion of sounds (explosions, beeps access cards, and effects as objects bounce, grenades and knives), this all finally get to have the right atmosphere and feeling of the game ie the mod now see more in harmony.

Cougar Magnum gun finally has the proper shutter speed, the other weapons except the "laser" I think now uses actual speed of GE (I think this is defined as "RPM"). I liked this for turn the "Drone gun" and especially its color texture "military green" that gives a unique touch and I would like the gun "Seeker" also had this texture to remove that aspect Skedar. that weapons are back as the Mag-Sec4 and CMP150 is fantastic and hopefully these two will remain forever.

classic weapon slot is where I found the repetition curious 6 or 7 times the weapon "Psychosys".these slots can be leveraged for PD weapons most emblematic and better still if you have functions that do not exist in goldeneye weapons.

about missions like they are back grenades (hopefully they can use enemies in other levels than the A-51). acceded appreciate GE levels to missions, the Frigate think you have a problem with the cuts in the walls, meaning you can pass through them and fall into the void, this level is empty apart. somehow the cut affected the level ground "Attack Ship" this time it can be played by you will fall back into the void.

I know this might be asking for too much but is it possible that for Cradle the bottom part with the 3rd small room that leads down to the hole via ladder to the small platform where James has his final confrontation with 006 be added along with the engine motors in both rooms above?

By the way, if you can possibly be able to add those two things for the Cradle I would suggest making the low platform with the tiny circle space a spawn point. I would not put any ammunition boxes down there or inside the small room that leads to the bottom platform. This way when players spawn there they have to quickly get out of the small platform, out of the small room, climb up back to the cradle surface and grab a weapon and ammo. And make the tiny space with the circular platform have open tiles so that if you move to the edges of it you can fall down to your death and get a suicide count. If Perfect Dark had the pipes with bottomless pits why can't the Cradle in Goldeneye?

Also in Archives in the basement level is it possible that the crate nearest to the wall can be able to explode to the other side of the wall as well? Like by making that wall less solid by using a different kind of texture wall like the unbreakable glass walls?

On another note some fixes that need to be made:
1. In the MI6 Headquarters the firing range has a computer where you can target practice at. On the computer it lists what weapons are available to practice with along with a brief description of each weapon. The weapons names mentioned in the description need to be corrected as well as some of the descriptions for each weapon need to be edited off.

2. Egyptian staircase going to the area with the blue water tiles has a open tile in the wall or ceiling so players can fall to their death and get a suicide count.

3. Caves has an open tile in one of the high platforms causing players to fall to their death and get a suicide count.

4. Rankings that need to be renamed.
21: Beginner
20: Trainee
19: Amateur
18: Rookie
17: Novice
16: Trooper
15: Agent
14: Star Agent
13: Special Agent* (to Secret Agent)
12: Expert
11: Veteran
10: Professional
9: Dangerous
8: Deadly
7: Killer
6: Assassin
5: Lethal
4: Elite
3: Invincible
2: Near Perfect* (to 00 Agent)
1: Perfect* (to 007)

5. Also in the MI6 Headquarters in the Device Lab section it names the Goldeneye Key in the computer's description as the data uplink. When you go to use the Goldeneye Key the Data Uplink name is shown in the bottom bar. When you get the GE key it says "Select the Uplink" maybe that should be changed to Key or GE Key? Then it says "stand next to the terminal and use the data uplink" needs to be renamed to Goldeneye Key.
Then when the GE key is used in the Terminal the completed status in the terminal describes it again as "data uplink" that needs to be renamed too as well as any device in that terminal's device list.

6. Game freezes on the terminal computer near the hangar where the scientist says "We were ready for you a half hour ago" or something along those lines. Also the location name on that terminal computer says "Carrington Institute" instead of MI6 Headquarters.

7. Silo X sounds alright at first but then as it goes on it sounds nothing like how I originally heard it on youtube. I was testing something out in the original Goldeneye and the Frigate song came on and it sounded completely different and badass compared to the GE: X version. For some reason I get the feeling the tracks in GE: X are coming off in Monaural.
