News on the development of the new 3D Dead Frontier.
Missions is a one big BUG ;DD
Thanks for everything that you do :)really enjoying the missions!! Anyone who says they suck are either A. at the wrong outpost or B. just whiners in general :)
i seen so many bugs and i still see they haven't been fixed. okay everyone who plays df if you see a bug fix please post here so we all know the development of the game. not like admin would have the time to post the bugs he fixed. though they probably are mission bugs but not specific.

Good stuff. Loving the missions. Not noticed any really bad bugs.
THANKS ADMIN¡¡¡¡ MY LIKE MISSION TODAY MONDAY 10 canisters GO DEAD ZONE..,,,.DEAD ZONE SEND MISSION STEP ONE OF LOOT
Ya know Neil....I think we need to send ya a great big package with a whole crate of Raid.;PAs always, I at the very least appreciate the fact that you're working your butt off to keep our poor jaded brains amused and occupied with pixelated zombie apocalypse goodness!
Hey guys wat outpost do u think i should be in? I'm a lvl 22 doctor with flak jacket a dilmar ps, a mc kris, a beta 8000, a mc sl8 and i have a good amount of money but ever since i get to lvl 22 it seems like im looting medical items that only heals 3% and 9% when administered. I'm currently at Dogg's Stockade right now.-Roboticwheel
roboticwheel if that doc is just a money making account than at doggs it will get more business. rom experiance. but if it is an active ac coutn and or your main move to p13 or fort. cause you will have to loot orange zone now no more yellow zone. either that or die!!! say goosdbye to yellow now. also i have seen that p13 gives easier missions than fort so go there first. then fort. there totaly different with each market having different prices.
All right thanks i was thinking about that now :D
Yow mission is out how comes im not seeing it at Nastya hideout?
I was doing the mission at Dogg's stockade. I looted the van to get the package. My inventory was full. So I opened my inventory. Upon closing my inventory an error accrued (This almost never happens)that made me have to refresh the page. When I returned to the previously mentioned van it was no longer lootable. I was unable to complete the mission because of this. Please fix this bug.
@ okeanoworldMissions are only out for gold members right now.
@RoboticwheelYou don't really need to go to doggs stockade only go there if your new, u can skip and go straight to precinct 13
Why was i banned for something i had nothing to do with? I sent a few support tickets and 4 E-mails...
@ UndeadSnake, there was another bug just like that for the Fort Pastor mission, so I'm sure he'll fix it real quick.
yeah like when i was looting i looted. a shovel mced. one block down left of fort and then i tried to take a picture of it with this google chrome cam and press this button where the page becomes a picture and then i lost the loot and when i went back i looted the whole block without any shovel. then iremebered wher i was looting it at. went there and it wasn't lootable any more.
Yo admin!!! i know you dont wana hear about how great your doin. SO. You are way behind schedule from where the hardcore DF community expects you to be. if shit is taking so long then just hire and extra hand or two. Its time to stop screwing around, get the damned missions running already. And start on interior and bericadeing. And then finally you can update the unity. But you are lagging hard. if you keep this pace up the game wont be fully playable till 2012. TIME TO STEP YOUR GAME UP MAN!!!p.s. good work so far, game is coming along nicely
Well, the new mission is meh to me.... I mean, I don't think that it's worth 20kish dollars... I can loot EZ for WAY more. That's just me. Other's will be doing it for the EXP, but as I have all my stat's that I want... I see no need to waste time on the missions.... at least, more than I need to. Still though, great job on these missions Admin. They look great, and I haven't really noticed any major bugs. They truly did live up to, and go beyond, the old missions of 2D. Much harder, and much, MUCH more rewarding.
Spider killing time. Good stuff. Quite close too. I wonder if we will be getting a notice board again so we can pick multiple missions and get them all done in one trip.
why there are so many ruffians? XD
Must be hard running a game. But then again, I'm sure you can code way better than me so it must be easy for you :P
@ tennerkist- you know what man, admin is tired of all that BS, "oh you have a family, dont work yourself so hard", he wants to know what people think of the game; not constantly get his ass kissed. I love this game, i feel admin just needs to step it up a bit; maybe even hire an extra hand for a month or so to really boost productivity. But i wanna see this game blow up huge and be something game developers have to battle with, as apposed to just crushing. so keep up the good work admin, and get this game done.
@tannerkist FREAKSHOW is playing around.
There is no option to pay by text message, can no longer pay more for this medium?
I'm getting kinda sick of Spider missions. I don't like spiders. They're super fast and always on my ass. And a horde of them is just peachy-keen. I wouldn't mind exterminating hundreds of tendrils, though.
@freakshowHe is only one guy, he can only do so muchplus, "Hardcore DF players" just deal with any postponed updated, and don't complain.
If DF is still in beta wat will the lvl 200 players do when its realesed?
"Hardcore DF players" may not complain but Real DF players would. This is a development blog.If Neil hired some more people to work on this game it would be a lot better and probably 100% done by now. Then they could start working on part 3. Admin is just money hungry. He has proved it multiple times.[This is just my option and it is not my intention to upset or insult anyone.]
@UndeadSnake Well, he DID try to have other people work on the game. But they ran off with half the money and left without doing any work. I don't think Admin would like to repeat the experience. Also, liking the 2 new missions Admin.
Usually you don't pay someone til after they've did the work! :P
Yes, got to put a little more into the game if you intend a lot of people to really catch on. I personaly have tried to get over 12 friends to play with me, and they all get bored by lvl 20. So its time to realease the full game already, and if you have to penny up 1 or 2 months pay, then so be it; YOUR GAME WILL EXPLODE! this game is so sick, it just needs to get finished, and the key thing me and snake are saying is that it needs to get done just a little faster; or at the very least put some extra resources into the pot to boost production. Keep it up admin, and i hope you find your self some real solid help soon.
admin would have been done by now with all the missions and starting on the samell stuff if he wasn't a lay azz for 4 months. so yeah we expect more.
@tannerkist, FREAKSHOW is actually just doing as admin asked which was to not take any pity on him or cut him any slack in relation to slow updates. Admin has specifically said and I quote:"I don't want to hear any comments taking pity on me or telling me that I deserve to take it easy etc. It's time to cut the bulls**t and get some work done."So in simple terms FREAKSHOW is just encouraging admin along. And for the record, FREAKSHOW's comments are by far the most constructive and critical yet least offensive of anyone elses on this blog so far.
If Admin finished his game, and put the base down he would be able to slow down on the essential content and start releasing smaller, money making updates.Aka -new costumes that are only available for credits.-special weapons that won't fu- over the pvp scene, which power seems to be the only thing making admin money ATM. (gaus and vulcans)-make 100 credits actually worth something instead of trying to force a 40$ price tag on everything useful.
I gotta comment here, and Neil I hope you read this because you should hear the opinion of a paying player.3 things only:1. Your prices are a tad high. $100 for a vulcan (close enough to it) is a lot. The game's only in beta dude, and its just one item, sure its good but what game charges 100 bucks for an item? Dude I can go out and buy a finished game like cod or n4s for less than that and theys much more polished than beta version of this game. Not that I'm saying anything bad about DF here just the prices rant rant I know but its true. Further to this, if you dropped the price, heres food for thought, maybe twice as many could afford it, possibly more. Imagine instead of 1000 people paying $100 you get 3000 people willing to pay $50. 2. Needs way more items bro - try having more than one weapon that is similar in strength - just adds more variety.3. don't delete comments like this from the forums - why have mods troll to delete negative comments thats completely stupid.Ok thats it sorry rant rant i know but i just had to get it out.
The AIs were cool on the spider mission. Nice of you to let them leave the house and stretch there legs.Tank bits then eh, ere goes.
in the future, we may choose the mission or missions will always be random?
GHOST AMMO INFINITE PLEASE ADMINAsk the question WIKIDEADFRONTIER 6 MOTHS
Lol'd.We shouldn't pity admin, he needs to do shit. Thats for sure. But at the same time, anyone who says he isn't doing it fast enough is also wrong. He is doing it alone. And hes progressing very well compared to ever before. Therefore, he is doing awesome and we should just support him. That means not being an ass either. If you think he's "money hungry" then go spend your money somewhere else. He deserves every penny he gets as does almost any game developer that makes a good game.
@Josh -thumbs up-
I wish he would make the game better connected amongst players. I'm tired of disappearing party members and random de-syncs. How about an actual party and friend system? And what's with the damn window pop ups? I don't mind waiting ten seconds to open an inventory screen, I understand what that's all about, but why can't it be in game? It's time to take it up a notch. I've seen one manned games do amazing things, I'm not letting him off the hook because he's one dude. He's one clearly talented dude, so now he needs to show it.
@ FroggymanYes party play would be nice. I only play with my brother. Other people just build up my aggro.As for the pop ups, you must remember it is a browser based game not a disc based one.
So are we gonna get transportation or not?
OK I'm posting can't help it. OK I agree with Froggyman all the way, and in that 10 second wait you can get mauled easily by a group of zeds. You should change that wait to either no wait to 5 seconds. I liked the 2D lobby where you could make your own thing and add a password.Oh shiz OA coming on in Fort bye
10 seconds is short enough.If it's shorter, then it's pretty much instant invincibility.
Just a little idea for missions, Admin/Neil should add in missions where you just kill a certain amount of total infected in an area, sort of like in 2D, instead of hunting down 1 certain kind of infected in a huge group of them :bJust an idea
@ tannerkist10 seconds is fine. Hit the button 10 seconds before you want to pause :PYou are not suppose to use it to get away from zed! Thats why you get instant aggro when you un-pause.BUT big time yes on the 2D's lobby option. I loved that!
I loved the lobby and the ability to play with friends. But it was sort of gay in 2D with zombies in different locations.
Lobby+3D= Everyone Happy and EPIC...oh and there should be a type of transportation like a working subway created by the engineers.For Example At certain levels would unlock a new Outpost to transport to...Level 5= Dogg's StockadeLevel 15= Precinct 13Level 25= Fort Pastor
or you could pay 5000 to transport.
$100 real USD for a Vulcan in game?...
I just checked..it is true...
Yes, it is $100 USD for a vulcan, if you feel like "CC Noob"ing it instead of looting etc like a boss :b
I think today is my lucky day I just looted a CK 99 and then a SPSA 12(SPAS 12) all on my alt account
hey if i was like rich and my parents where getting at least 20k a month i am sure they would be like 100$ o well. but not on the money they are getting. and if i got like even 5-10k a month i would buy it, once i am old to even get a job that pays that much. so for richies 100$ is like okay then but for normal players like most of us we can't afford to pay that much for a game. maybe no game system for a year? like ps3 or x-box.then it be leveled.o yeah and i meant that for sons and daughters not just the parents no game system for anyone for a whole year if they still don't have one but just a vulcan in game. other than that aboveAdminPwn good job on the game but remember not every one gets over 5k a month. though if you have kids then that is something else 5k would be just enough. without kids. you can spend those extra 500$ (per 3 kids) a month on something good.
From now on my alt is for looting I just found a crash helmet
Admin Said :"Planned roadmap:June:- Anti-cheat overhall (okay, not exciting but is an absolute must due some weaknesses that were discovered recently)July:- Missions & Events- InteriorsAugust:- Barricading- Unity 3.4 Conversion (better performance, less bugs etc)- Bug fixes and optimization- Non-browser caching (remove inner-city loading times)September:- Clan/party/social systemOctober:- Proper newbie tutorial- Localization to multiple languagesWill I miss deadlines? Probably. But it isn't going to be from lack of effort this time.P.S I don't want to hear any comments taking pity on me or telling me that I deserve to take it easy etc. It's time to cut the bulls**t and get some work done."that was in JUNE ! it is almost September!! either update this itinerary or get the freaking lead out cause YOU ARE WAY BEHIND !!
Brian, Just the shut the fuck up and stop complaining. Admin DID say that he would probably miss the deadline(s) listed above. And if you think it's so easy to make a game by yourself like Admin does, then why don't YOU try it? So in conclusion: SHUT THE FUCK UP, AND STOP WHINING LIKE A LITTLE BABY.
Thanks Admin!!!Now DF is loading too fast.
"Admin DID say that he would probably miss the deadline(s) listed above. And if you think it's so easy to make a game by yourself like Admin does, then why don't YOU try it? So in conclusion: blah blah blah"You'll be repeating this same apologetic garbage come August 2013. No one said they thought it was easy to make a game by yourself, but frankly, who said Admin HAS to make this game by himself? Is it impossible to hire anyone to help him or is it just more profitable to stay solo, push deadlines, and make excuses?The answer is obvious when you look at this core group of fanatics who eagerly defend him regardless what happens. Even after blatantly admitting to months of "laziness" people came on here and said, "Oh well at least he's honest." "Cool, thanks for letting us know." "I love you Admin, yes in a gay way, wanna have sex with me?" Sure, that was cute for the first month after he updated everyone, but the charm is wearing off. He runs a business; that's his choice. we don't have to be better at it than he is, we don't need to pat him on the back every time he misses a deadline, and people are NOT being mean to him by pointing out problems. $100 for a single gun in a video game! Try to explain that to anyone that isn't an insane fanboy and they would laugh hysterically at you. That's not complaining, that's just the truth. If you walked into my store and I said it costs $100 for a can of soda, would you buy it or would you keep your mouth shut and simply walk out? I know, I know...leave Brtiney Spears alone!! Don't worry, I'm leaving. You guys can start singing Kumbaya my lord again.I'll check back in 8 months to see if any of the major bugs like invincible zeds and bad multiplayer synch are fixed. Maybe missions will be nearly done by then too.
GO TeamAdmin!!! =D but ANYWAYS...theres a searching problem in da game its when u find an Item the question mark(?) still remains after u done search and if u search again its same item popping up but u cant get it again tho but yeah thats one of themBut i need more info on TRANSPORTATION though like any war battle jeeps like in Halo well im just saying though really needa way for easy transportation
@striff,Finally, someone who isn't a complete drone.
@ striff- THANK YOU SIRLet striff's message be a lesson to all you fools who thinks its ok to metaphorically suck admins dick all day. If your trying to bash on the constructive criticism admin specificaly asked for, then your being more of a thorn in admins side than we are. ENOUGH OF THE GLITTERY BULLSH**and admin, your sick now huh? That sucks really bad an im sorry to hear that. All i heard was the game has been untouched for two day. Yes there will be plenty of shit like this that i expect, but you see this is the perfect opportunity for a hired hand to pick up some slack.After all the money everyone has shelled out for this game, its time to step it up, stop makeing excuses and get some damned help.And as for your little plans admin, they were already drawn out a little too long, and your about to be 2 months behind very shortly. which will just as quickly turn into months longer. YOU NEED HELP ADMIN!!! please go get some. You will fall way too behind if you dont. And most of all my biggest fear is that you (admin) are going to work yourself to death trying to release the game only to find yourself 6months behind schedule with a long way still to go; and then you get burned out just like last time.
ADMIN!!!! This spider mission where you have to find the 10 blood samples is STILL broke as F*CK. There is way too much agro to do anything, much less loot a spider corpse. Fix this unbalanced crap please. rest of the missions were just fine for me, this is the only one that i cant complete.
My favorite mission is the spider mission, the one where you have to loot ten spider corpses for blood samples. It's so fun and easy, I could do it all day! :P
@FREAKSHOW just go to the garden in the SW section of the SW block. You will find a safe spot. It's not broke, you just need to learn how to do it.
@FREAKSHOW sorry for all that shit the other day.
And about this $100 vulcan. You know $100 is 12.5 peoples monthly GM righ? So 12.5 people get their 200 credits a month and sell then on the market. Somebody who has been looting and saved up enough money to buy those credits then does so. That player then buys a vulcan with those credits. The vulcan has cost that person nothing and all they had to do to earn it is have fun playing the game. The 12.5 people who paid real cash for that persons vulcan surely bought lots of nice things with the cash from selling the credits and got all the perks of GM.Why do people not understand how that works and are sat there trying to work out how people pay $100 for some pixels.
well i am not taking sides again so just going be a normal person normally commenting on this blog. hurry up admin. rest and tak it easy till your arm feels better than work till you get something done. and stop being a lazy azz if you aren't gonna work at all. if you are reading this .
This game is a little too hard for non-GM noobs like me.
He'd better finish this game quickly or else he might lose players. I don't care if he does it himself or with help but for as long as he gets it done on time, we're good.
Todays FP mission was good. Was expecting to escort the guy back to FP though.And some of you guys just leave me speechless. The game is visibly progressing quicker in this last week or so than it has for a very long time and you are still not happy.
Just pointing out @tannerkist you shouldn't use 'gay' as a derogatory term.
Hi, I'm "Azathoth47" and I have a problem:I was playing when I entered in the "Dogg's Stokade" with 100% exp. to improve my character stats. But instead of the ussual screen, I see all the game screen in black only with the legend "Congratulations, your player has gained a level! You must now spend your free points below", but I can't see nothing!I tried re-entering the web, re-opening the browser, but nothing happens, the game shows me nothing but this black background and this legend.I hope someone read me and can help me.My email is: firstname.lastname@example.org.Thanks!!
Striff: Dude, Admin prolly wont let them run of with alot of money again without doing sh!t. THAT's what happened last time READ BEFORE YOU WRITE ANYTHING jesus christ.
AND FREAKSHOW: OMFG! Dude, Again, WHAT happened last time admin hired someone? You may have 3 guesses, and the first 2 does not count.1. Admin took a cup of coffee2. They danced along a fucking rainbow3. Thoose asses ran along with half the money and didnt do sh!t to get them! AKA they faked his ass :/ (This is the right one!)
He probably doesent want to lose that much money again for nothing.
BTW i think somethings wrong with the Agility thing. I used to be WAY faster than i am now. And my skill has only risen when i level up. Please could you check up on it??
Market is jacked up way to high, prices are too high, AI is impossible to take on alone in hot zones, game is just getting harder and harder and to the point that you're pushing new players away.
