A small request with a big return

22 February 2015 - 07:36 PM

As some of you know, one of my good friends Tom (our very own MONOLITH on the forums) is a very good writer. He has taken upon himself to do what he can to help our soldiers that are deployed away from home. Tom has started a project called Words For Warriors to send free books to those service members.

Please take a moment and help Tom out if you can.

Welcome to 2015

If you are still with us, and why wouldn't you be.... welcome to 2015 with BlackFoot Studios! We have a feeling its going to be a really great year around here so we hope you keep hanging on and enjoy the ride. It's going to start  gaining some speed here soon. ;)

John starting working on the official Ground Branch Steam store page today! That is actually a pretty important milestone as it signals the start of moving into more of a public phase for Ground Branch. On that note, we am looking for some professional (either actual experience or work quality) to help out on the graphics side of things for the page. It's going to be important to start off with a professional appearance so I'd like to do it right. If you think you would be able to help for reduced rates or even barter a bit, let us know as soon as you can.

We have also got around to setting up a public bug tracker so people can help out by submitting bugs once the demos are available. That is getting tested out by a private group as I type this.

On the game side of things Kris has been busting ass with getting things stable and features more completely implemented. He has also got the first pass of character and weapon configurations in and working. This includes the ingame UI and saving/loading out actual constructed configs.

On the art side the existing training maps have received one more pass for visuals and some more detailing work. John has also started working on the main demo map that will be used to show off various gameplay features to get people interested in the upcoming Early Access. Sort of a 'try before you buy' for the Early Access. It's a reworked version of the warehouse map that was shown in the UE3 screenshots and videos.

So we hope everyone had a great holiday and safe New Year. It's time to get back to work!

Xbox One games not running

29 December 2014 - 11:31 AM

So, got my son an XboxOne and am having issues getting COD: Advanced Warfare and Forza: Horizons2 to run. They install fine, but when played with go to title screen then a black screen for 15 seconds or so then the console restarts. I found a few things online about it trying to install updates while installing the main game, but the solutions didn't work. Our EA sports games install and run fine so no idea whats going on.

I'm pretty fed up with the new gen of consoles already to be honest. 45gb installs! What happened to a small installs to cache gameplay from the disc? I miss putting the disc in and playing.... that was always the draw of a console to me.

Oh well, anyone have this issue and/or a solution? Google isn't helping much.

New look!

As you can see we have overhauled the site to be a little more streamlined. As we start to move into the next phase of the life of Ground Branch we thought it appropriate to give everything a "fresh coat of paint". We will begin to update the content in the near future as well.

We would like to thank our contributor Zoog for all his hard work!
