TEK update

Posted by Tim Fountain on 13:27, 3/7/2001 | ,
 
TEK screenshotArtex Software have released a new screenshot showing off some of TEK's features that you would have seen at the Wakefield show. The blocky darker areas on the image represent the edge of the area that the currently selected units can see - anywhere out of view is covered by "the fog of war". The picture also shows a new unit and a new explosion effect.

The version at Wakefield was a little prone to crashing, but apparently most of these bugs have now been fixed. Artex are currently working on a one-level demo of the game, it is not clear whether this will be released before, after or at the same time as the full version. As for the full game itself, latest word from Artex is "pretty soon".

Unregistered user Well it's looking pretty cool... although I notice that the energy bars are red rather than green and that they seem to be underneath the units - having played C&C quite a lot this might be a bit confusing ;)

Ah yes, the explosion - it's a product of all that was discussed in the A.A. forum.

As to the extra screenshots - you'll have to talk to Jan about that.

Regards,

Max
