AP_3141 is now live!

It's that time again, ladies and gentlemen! Time for an update. But not just any update! An update with a lot of fixes and features.

We'd also like to tell you a little bit about ourselves. Who's Alligator Pit, really? What's changed since the last time we introduced ourselves to the community? Read more about it here, on our latest official blogpost!

Talking about community contributors, we'd also like to showcase our brand new achievement icons! Check them out on Steam! They were made by this guy, check out his other stuff!

Also, we created a brand new documentation website for information about dedicated servers, scripting, and more! Check it out at http://docs.samrev.com/. This documentation can be contributed to on Github as well, so feel free to submit any pull requests if you have anything to add.

  • Added a new mutator: Enemies Replacer. This randomly replaces enemies in any level with random special character types.
  • Added a Pitch property to SoundHolder entities.
  • Added a default dedicated server controller addon: the Combative Creature Cutter, also known as CCC. You can add admins, kick people, or invoke votekicks. (More documentation about this soon!)
  • Updated the Bromscript scripting engine.
  • Added new (old) variants of Elementals: Earth and Wind.
  • Added some more customization options to Grunt and Firecracker.
  • Fixed lasergun/tommygun slowdown bug.
  • Fixed windowed mode resolutions not always showing the right values in menu.
  • Fixed "Stats not saved: error 3".
  • Fixed stats for Ziggurrat never uploading to Steam leaderboards.
  • Fixed stats shown in menus always being singleplayer. This also shows deathmatch stats now!
  • Fixed stats not always saving correctly when playing multiplayer.
  • Fixed the way secondary fire, Netricsa, and Use controls were conflicting with each other. They are now all separate controls. This also avoids confusion.
  • Fixed a bunch of minor level issues.
  • Fixed a bunch of minor networking issues.
  • Fixed a bunch of minor graphical issues.
  • Fixed a bunch of crashes.
  • Fixed a few survival exploits.
  • Lots of internal code changes that will allow us to roll out fixes even faster!

AP_2972 is now live!

Aside from a recent ice skating incident here at Alligator Pit (imagine that, ice skating near a pit full of alligators), we managed to push another update to Steam without many wounded developers. That is a good thing!

We might also have some Bright Island teasers in the near future, so stay tuned for that. Thanks to everyone who have reported bugs and suggestions on the bugreporter, via the forum, or directly to one of us in online deathmatch while you were destroying us with rocket launchers and shotguns. It's okay. We forgive you.

So, let's get to the changes:

  • Added a "Custom Message" editor property to enemies to give them custom Netricsa messages.
  • Added a new biomech enemy type: "Spawner".
  • Added a new beheaded enemy type: "Vaporwave".
  • Added the ability to make custom crosshairs. The game will now list all crosshairs that it can find in the "Textures/Interface/Crosshairs" folder instead of only the 7 default ones.
  • Added mut_fPlayerAccelerationMultiplier and mut_fPlayerDecelerationMultiplier mutators.
  • Changed physics a little bit to make it easier to climb on certain kinds of ledges. (Feedback or issues about this welcome!)
  • Fixed issues with Steam lobbies causing lobbies to persist longer than it should, causing weird issues in the long run.
  • Fixed problem on Oasis where you could get stuck in the Marsh Hopper room.
  • Fixed Fishman not working on Steam builds.
  • Fixed cannonballs exploding on itself when firing in Yodeller.
  • Fixed projectiles launching too fast after new tickrate update.
  • Fixed editor shortcut for test-in-place. Removed test-in-fullscreen shortcut.
  • Fixed cooperative damage counter counting if you shoot players.
  • Fixed autodownloader issues for some maps.
  • Fixed net_bReportCorrectionPackets not giving valuable enough debugging information.
  • Fixed a weird scoring issue in CTF.
  • Fixed a couple common crashes.
  • Fixed a couple enemy spawner issues.
  • Fixed a lot of other minor issues.

Wait until after it's out of Early Access. The team are doing great things to modernise and optimise the game, but as somebody who just wants to play the thing I can't stand every update breaking my save files. There's a command to circumvent the error, but that just throws up a different error because they've quite obviously updated and improved the code since the previous saves. I suppose it's unavoidable given that it's Early Access, but that also makes it somewhat unplayable.

As far as I could tell, there was no warning or indication that this may happen to your save file upon starting the game.

A nice classic game that will bring you fun for hours. Going through all of those endless hordes of enemies will bring you nightmares! Very serious nightmares! The storyline is also pretty great too, not some mixed up timeline. The soundtrack is pretty good, and the graphics aren't too bad for being an old game. A very recommended game if you like classic First-Person shooters.

9/10 - Awesome

A nice try to revive an old game. Only one problem - performance. The game is OpenGL only, which is great for developer, but bad for mid-low-end players. Don't even try if your hardware does not run GL well. I have a PC and a laptop. PC runs the game at 7-300 fps, pretty much the same with laptop.

Very buggy, glitches everywhere, texture flickering, monsters disappearing... Sacred yards in first encounter is unplayable (had to save/load like 10 times in some places because I was dropping from the map while walking and fps down to 1, also insta dying to invisible things like i was being smashed), also the final boss once he climbs the pyramid gets stuck on the floor and is trying to move but he ends just walking in place which renders the final boss battle impossible as he is regenrating his hp with no way to make him go to the center to kill him with the teleport.
Avoid playing this version and stick to the classic or HD editions untill this one gets properly done with the new campaign!

It was a nice thought, but it's been abandoned-- strike that, it's actually been updated again! Somewhat. Whether or not the additional glitches, split playerbase, and continued absence of votekicking are worth the marginal conveniences of having both games in a cheap, slightly modernized pack continues to be debatable.

Firstly: I played this game on no-steam version, I found it really really fun to play in co-op mode so I bought it. Worth money yes.
It's a big deal that this game includes both of the first two serious sam games with a good price like this.
The problem is the game is in early access and it never gets updated while it's still in eary access. Other games like Lego Worlds gets weekly updates and its in early access, might be the developers of serious sam classics: revolution having lack of support.

I rate this game 8.6 out of 10.
Reason: it's the only game you can find out on steam that has tons of Al enemies spawn almost 1000 times, without encountering any performance problems.

Short version: 81%
For those who missed the original Serious Sam games, Revolution is the best choice right now: by combining both Encounters and updating them to meet today's technical standards, it lets everyone equally enjoy this old-school shooter series, testing their abilities (and the power of their serious arsenal) against hordes upon hordes of monsters.

Long version:
When the original Serious Sam games got too outdated to play them without issues on modern systems, the developers decided to just remake them entirely in their then-newest engine as HD editions. There were some players though who preferred the original– either for the lower requirements, the old-school looks, or because they didn’t like the small level and gameplay changes. So, they disassembled the old engines and completely remade them as a single package, completed with a series of bug fixes and some community levels.
The result was Revolution, which turned out to be so good that now it even replaced the original First and Second Encounters in the Steam store.

If you never met this series, then buckle up, because Serious Sam is a very old-school FPS. There are no covers or health regeneration (unless you play the sissy difficulty), and the enemies won’t stop in the distance to make sure the player has time to kill them at their leisure. Here, you have to gruellingly cut, burn, slice, shoot, and explode your way through courtyards upon courtyards of alien monsters in ancient Egypt, the Maya Empire, Babylon, and medieval Europe.
This may suggest some grim and gritty tone, but Serious Sam is also known for its cheesy humour, usually in the form of corny one-liners– mimicking the worst of 80s action movie clichés– or goofy secrets. This combination of hardcore action and nonsensical writing was one of the reasons Serious Sam reached its cult classic status, and the reason anyone who never played it should do so at least once.

This is a long review so if you just want a brief summary of why I recommend Serious Sam Classics: Revolution then skip to Results and read from there.

Alligator Pit manufactures the original in all new light with dazzling new interface and cleaned up visuals. Serious Sam Classics: Revolution revitalizes the classic games taking on similar ideas as the HD remakes by creating a game with cleaner performance.

Serious Sam: Revolution includes the first and second encounters, which means instead of paying $34.00 for both the First and Second Encounter you can get them both for $9.99 (without being on sale). Although, what you are probably wondering is what else is included in Serious Sam Classics: Reovlution? To name a few better graphical options, steam support, new campaigns, new bosses, improved UI, level editors, and much more.

Campaign:
The First Encounter:
For those who already own the first encounter you should probably skip this. This campaign includes thirteen main story levels and two secret levels. All of the levels take place in Egypt and are about the story of how Serious Sam began his quest to save humanity from Metals domination. The original campaign offers hours of gameplay as the levels are incredibly large and filled with secrets. The levels are composed of fighting mass hordes of enemies, solving puzzles, and completing objectives. During the campaign you will fight three bosses: Highlander Aludran Reptiloid, Lava Golem, and Ugh-Zan III. The brilliant group fights and epic boss fights keep you on your toes constantly engaged in a changing environment.

The Second Encounter:
For those who already own the second encounter you should probably skip this. This campaign includes twelve levels (no secret levels), but it also includes the entire campaign from Serious Sam The First Encounter. The campaign is divided across three kingdoms: Mayans, Persia, and medieval Poland. Similar to the First Encounter the second encounter is incredibly long, the levels are large and filled with secrets. The Second Encounter creates even more puzzles, crazier secrets, and throws more enemies at you than imaginable. Not only will you be engaged in all the mysteries abound, but the campaign also provides four bosses: Kukulkan, The Wing God, Exotech Larva, Mordekai the Summoner, and The Ram-God. The Ram-God is from Legend of the Beast DLC, which I assume is going to be implemented into Serious Sam Classis: Revolution.

Bright Island:
I have no information on this campaign, as it is not available in the early access beta.

Space Crusader (Possible Additional Campaign):
This campaign will include the following levels: Water Planet, Lava Planet, Green Planet, Ice Planet, Tropic Planet, and Rock Planet. Although none of this is mentioned, there are hints that this is being implemented based on the screenshots. The screenshots show that they may finally implement the scrapped levels and weapons from the Original Serious Sam. One of the weapons in the screenshots is the Ghost Buster (it looks like it shoots electricity) which was never implemented in the original campaign. it looks like this weapon is being used on the Rock Planet, which is one of the many various planets that was never included in the Serious Sam Campaign. The original campaign would have been over double the size if they finished developing most of the levels they had planned, but for various reasons they were cut. This makes me hope that this edition is finally fulfilling the original dream for Serious Sam and bringing the campaign in its full glory.

Graphical Additions:
The actual quality of the textures is the same as you would see in the HD remakes, although what Serious Sam Classics: Revolution offers is more than just a HD texture experience. It provides modern day graphical elements including: lens flares, fog, object bending, object translucency, smoother particle animation, haze, high resolution reflections, better portal animations, cleaner lighting, higher shading controls, and more. You can see all of these in action by checking out the Technology Test, which provides you with clean visuals of how these will be seen when implemented into the new campaign.

Steam Functionality:
Finally Serious Sam will have access to the workshop, and proper steam servers. The game is supposed to offer up to 42-player multiplayer and even support split screen. The game will come with a level editor, so if they don’t come out with space crusader or sky city someone will. Review Update Serious Sam Classics Revolution has been out now for almost two-half weeks, since then there has been a bundle of added content to the workshop. These include remodeling of textures, multiplayer maps, and even a custom campaign. SSCR has a lot of to offer, and if the community support continues in this fashion this will be an amazing addition to the series.

Results:
At this current point Serious Sam Classic: Revolution is not complete, but lets be honest Croteam and Devlover Digital completed Serious Sam HD in a timely manner; I am sure that you will not be waiting forever, unlike some Early Access Games. This game has a lot of potential with its new graphics engine, level editor, providing the original campaigns, better menu UI, cleaner animations, steam support, and so much more. I would buy this game at full price, but on sale it’s like you are robbing Croteam.

Pros:
+Great new OpenGL shaders and 64-bit support to create a much cleaner and graphic intensive game.
+Steam workshop support
+Steam servers for multiplayer (supports up to 42 players)
+Includes Serious Sam First and Second Encounter
+New Survival Mode
+Already mention of new Bright Island Campaign
+A level editor, so you can go crazy and make your own Serious Adventures
+Loads of enemies and bosses
+Lots of guns to choose from
+Already downloaded my first custom campaign, thanks Workshop support!

Cons:
-Its early access
