I'm getting back into Sven Co-op mapping

Hello!

Some of you may remember how I talked about this:



That's one of my 3 abandoned SC mapping projects, sc_sandstorm (if the name's already taken, I'll change).

Development was switched to oc_sandstorm, for Obsidian Conflict, but it took a long time to compile each time + I was bored of it + I didn't have enough of Source mapping knowledge and experience + I didn't have a good playlist (now I do, with around 50 songs) so I was even more bored.
Also, Sven Co-op had custom sentences, so the dialogue scenes were cut for OC.

Background story

What happened? Well, 3 weeks after I had begun developing this map (somewhere in the summer of 2016), Sven Co-op had an update, which removed Software rendering. That was terrible news for me, because this is my only device:


                                        (this is a Fujitsu S-Series S7210 Lifebook, from 2008, I think)
sniff*
The poor thing couldn't handle Sven Co-op 5.0 in OpenGL mode :'(
Why? Because of that stupid Intel GMA X3100 Mobile graphics card, which is integrated.
Of course, I said "my only device".

My brother had the better Fujitsu laptop, which has Intel HD Graphics, which are an equivalent to the Ati Radeon HD 4650, except this one was integrated. And he was always getting 60fps, even with the flashlights on.

So, my framerate dropped instantly to 4fps in the main menu, and the game was absolutely unplayable at only 2fps. I had to quit, I simply had to.


Just get to the point already!

OK, OK, there was a change.

Around 4 months after the event:
I decided to re-install Sven Co-op and 2 days ago I saw the frame rate in the main menu was 30fps. I thought: "Maybe it will lag in-game.", but that wasn't the case. I also had 30fps in my map.

Then I realised that I typed fps_max 30 in the console during summer, oops. I assigned it the value 60, and everything was in tip-top shape. Astonishingly, my map (the osprey ride above the desert) didn't lag! What a miracle. The frame rate was a stable 60fps, with rare drops to 55fps. I tried turning on the flashlight, but it didn't light up the brushes. I then remembered that I also turned off r_dynamic, good for me, because flashlights and dynamic lights make me lag 433% more.

The next day, I played on Stadium 4 with my brother, and some Half-Life campaign maps. He... hated the campaign maps, because he always died first, hi-hi-hi xD.

So, I opened J.A.C.K, and set up a new game config, this time for Sven Co-op 5.0, and went back to see my map "Sandstorm".

So the conclusion is, I'm back to Sven Co-op mapping!

    Is it done ?

    Far from done, my friend :)
    Here's the original TXT file:

    INTRO:

    *Start music

    OPENING SEQUENCE:
     - Players spawn in an osprey.
     - Co-pilot yells "RPG!"
     - Osprey explodes, and players crash-land, losing some health
         \_|FADE TO BLACK|_/
     
         \/BEGIN LEVEL CHANGE\/

    PART 1:

         \_|FADE FROM BLACK|_/
    *Start cinematic camera sequence
    *Start music

    - Players spawn with a pistol, a knife and a healing tool
    - Terrorists come to them, with guns

    - Friendly soldiers arrive, suppressing the terrorists
    - Sgt. Belly comes to players
     DIALOGUE:
      Belly:   "I'm glad to see you alive, boys!"
               "This is gonna happen every day, so get used to it!"
               "Listen now, grab some ammo and weapons, and get back to action!"

          \_|FADE TO BLACK|_/
         \_|FADE FROM BLACK|_/
     
    - Players go with other soldiers, following a tank

    - The squad comes under a hanging building
    - RPG Guy is in the building
    - Friendly soldier says "TAKE COVER!"
    - RPG hits the followed tank
    - Tank explodes
    - Sgt. Belly yells "Get out of here, now! Go thru' the hall!"

    - Players escape through the hall
    - The hall collapses
    - Sgt. Belly and his squad supposedly die

          \/BEGIN LEVEL CHANGE\/


    I think that this is enough for you to know.

    Of course, the script plan is now very much changed for SC 5.0, not 4.8. Before the osprey sequence, there will be a briefing.

    But, I must not tell you anything else, I don't want to "over-hype" the map.
