    I don't play with steam. is there any way to play the ns_training in a normal half-life program?
  • Meat_PopsicleMeat_Popsicle Join Date: 2003-08-09 Member: 19254Members, Constellation
    hmmm good question and tbh i really dont know, all i do kno is u definately need half-life and ns installed, i dont see why it shuldnt work on a non steam version of hl tho as steam maintains the same directory structure for backwards compatibility

    whos knows tho, try it and lemme kno if it works
  • ArtucaArtuca Join Date: 2005-02-05 Member: 39952Members
    Don't worry about this anymore. I managed to play it. However, i can't hear what i should be hearing... I put developer 2 in the console to know if there was some sound and it has, but i can't hear it...
  • Meat_PopsicleMeat_Popsicle Join Date: 2003-08-09 Member: 19254Members, Constellation
    its probably a path problem, while the rest of the mod stays in the half-life/nstraining folder, i believe the sounds need to go in half-life/ns/sound/ns_training

    the installer was only designed to work with steam so ull hav to organise things like ive mentioned above for it to work
  • ArtucaArtuca Join Date: 2005-02-05 Member: 39952Members
    No... I still can't hear them. I have my directory like this:

    c:\Sierra\Half-Life\train\(mod location)

    heres how it shuld be..

    half-life\nstraining // main mod folder

    just out of interest, wat version of ns do u hav installed?
  • ArtucaArtuca Join Date: 2005-02-05 Member: 39952Members
    Natural Selection (beta 5).

    No i can't hear...
    Just a question:
    When I start ns training, should i see the NS backgroun in the menu, or the HL background?

    maybe make a ns_training2 map for things like commanding, playing WITH the team (not ramboing) and how to not screw your team as a gorge

    <edit> This nakes em want to have a single player version of NS</edit>
  • Meat_PopsicleMeat_Popsicle Join Date: 2003-08-09 Member: 19254Members, Constellation
    Artuca, u shuld see the ns background yeh, ur not using the shortcut provided r u?
    i dont kno wat else to suggest im afraid other than buy steam and download ns 3

    ShotInTheHead, i wuld but this map alone was far from easy or quick to make, if anyone else wuld like to go into that much detail in a training map be my guest

    Hi guys, I'm a newbie at Natural Selection and that training rocks! Very nicely done, could say better than the Half-life Training!
    Was more than enough to get me fraggin' <!--emo&::asrifle::--><img src='http://www.unknownworlds.com/forums/html/emoticons/asrifle.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='asrifle.gif' /><!--endemo-->

    Having just found this thread from a google search on comm'ing, I wanted to thank you for creating this training program. I only started playing NS a few days ago (not played many games either mind) and have until now, tried to stick to Combat because of it's simplicity. I've commed once and well, stick an utter newb in the comchair and you know what happens. <!--emo&;)--><img src='http://www.unknownworlds.com/forums/html/emoticons/wink-fix.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='wink-fix.gif' /><!--endemo--> Now I've played through this, I actually have a much better idea of what to do and how to do it and won't end up panicking and randomly placing turrets until the nasty aliens go away.

    Hey, not bad! I've been playing this game for 6 months, and have been hitting myself in the head for 10 minutes because I didn't download this sooner. Good job! <!--emo&:D--><img src='http://www.unknownworlds.com/forums/html/emoticons/biggrin-fix.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='biggrin-fix.gif' /><!--endemo-->

    <!--emo&:D--><img src='http://www.unknownworlds.com/forums/html/emoticons/biggrin-fix.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='biggrin-fix.gif' /><!--endemo--> I laughed when I could not join the alien team... then I started crying...

    Hope that the NS developers want you to join their team !!!... they should really make a single player!!!...

    Never realized how great that would be...

    its one thing to have a great multiplayer game... and I always thought that the single player was none importent... but im wrong now... It would create an atmosphere for alot of people... new and elites... you would start feeling like your really a part of the game... give the single player a shot!!!

    "do it"

    look further down....

    "do it..."

    Played through it, quite excellent.

    however, noticed some bugs/aesthetic things that could do with changing. hope you dont mind a bit of critque.

    first off, the lip around the ladder down to holography, it dosnt need to be there. you have to crouch to get onto the ladder, and for the new fps player it will confuse. not something big mind you, but user friendlyness and all that.

    second, during the holographic briefing, i think something borked. it briefed me on the fade first, then the gorge. then the onos and the chambers. there was no briefing on the skulk, or the lerk. yet, the skulks holo and the lerks holo appeared first. there was also a 2 minute gap at the end where i had to sit waiting for the delayed holograms to stop appearing.

    also, in the arms room where you recieve the HA/HMG, the briefings for the different weapons, the beginning of the recording is cut off. instead of saying "the knife: a close combat...." it says "...ife: a close combat...."

    apart from those minor aesthetic bugs, top notch. include this in the main game and bada bing bada bang, you got yourself something nice.

    excellent work.

    the ns support for mp3's (i.e. the recordings u were having trouble with) is minimal at best, sometimes simply restarting the game seems to help but unfortunatly its outta my hands <!--emo&:(--><img src='http://www.unknownworlds.com/forums/html/emoticons/sad-fix.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='sad-fix.gif' /><!--endemo-->

    Yesterday when I knew that NS site was done I come forum and start exploring and find this <img src="style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/wink-fix.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=";)" border="0" alt="wink-fix.gif" /> , the ideia is very original and I think its good for rockies of ns , all that evoirement made me felt in the world of ns with a history to play and this is the same way half life games work, players learn with their experience . If NS2 comes with missions would be great and this is a nice prove of it.

    TY of all that work

    Hah, I played this map a LONG time ago. I do remember that it was a fantastic experience. Good job man.
  • FFSkyriderFFSkyrider Join Date: 2006-11-02 Member: 58211Members
    I just played this, and I must say.. Seriously AMAZING! Really nicely done. Recommended for all people! Can I mirror this on HL2Files.com?
  • SteelCutSteelCut Join Date: 2004-09-15 Member: 31719Members
    For an unofficial training map, this is an exelent piece of work.

    heh. I have been playing ns for about 2 years, and never Comm'ed. Mainly becuase I didn't know what the hell I should do, and how.

    If I once dared to jump in the chair.. People got really anxious to get theire IP's or amoury!

    This map has really thought me the very basics of commanding. thanks trainging map.. I praise you <img src="style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/nerd-fix.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid="::nerdy::" border="0" alt="nerd-fix.gif" />

    One thing I would like to see, is a far more comprehensive Comm training <img src="style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/tounge.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":p" border="0" alt="tounge.gif" />
