Releasing IHM 1.2 for L4D1 and IHM2 for L4D2!

Posted by Marc in General, Progress

Beware, there has been a confusion between the Left 4 Dead 1 and Left 4 Dead 2 versions of the campaign on the ModDB.com mirror. If you had downloaded it for Left 4 Dead 2, you might have ended up with the Left 4 Dead 1 version. This issue is now fixed.

This is it! No, we ain’t speaking about the Michael Jackson post-mortem movie but about the Left 4 Dead 2 version of I Hate Mountains subtly dubbed I Hate Mountains 2! We are hereby releasing the 1.2 version of both Left 4 Dead 1 and Left 4 Dead 2 versions of the campaign.

It certainly took time, almost 8 months… At the beginning, we honestly thought this port would be a piece of cake, but we just couldn’t figure how difficult it would be and how life would change for each of us following the release of the first version. Between missing content, broken features, crashes and unexplainable issues, we were really this close to give up during these last months.

To be entirely honest, the 1.2 version for Left 4 Dead 1 was already finished for a few months (since august 2010 to be precise), but due to a huge lack of motivation (we’re working on it for over 2 years now) and Nicolas’ departure who decided to move and directly hate mountains in Canada, we had almost stopped the Left 4 Dead 2 port. But finally, we decided to keep going on when a Polycount manager asked for an interview and fresh news about it. We realized that some people were still waiting for the Left 4 Dead 2 version and we didn’t want to disappoint them.

We worked hard on it and we managed to fix everything we could. But despite all our efforts, some minor issues remain unsolvable as of today. Those are actually listed on the I Hate Mountains forums and in the README.txt file included in the download. But you should still be able to play the Left 4 Dead 2 version in quite an optimal way compared to what we thought would be achievable. We really spent a lot of time to test the campaign with a fellow French gaming team which allowed us to fix plenty of unusual and rare exploits.

Finally, You should keep in mind that this new version of I Hate Mountains is really an exact port of the Left 4 Dead 1 version. We didn’t spend much time tweaking the maps with the new available assets, but above all we didn’t change our specific art direction (it’s still dark). By the way, we thank Valve for the last DLC for both games that allowed us to use the old survivors in Left 4 Dead 2 and to preserve the true spirit of the campaign.

We hope you will enjoy I Hate Mountains again, be it with the updated Left 4 Dead 1 version or the new Left 4 Dead 2 one with all the features and improvements of the second game. You can enjoy it right now on this friendly French server: Left4dead2 ‘playersfactory’ 109.239.147.182:27015

jimmy kimmel is a huge jerk to matt damon once againBefore I go further, do you remember “Gus,” the Disney film that was released in 1976? This project was an American family comedy film directed by Vincent McEveety and starring Edward Asner, Don Knotts and Gary Grimes. Its center character is “Gus,” a football playing mule. The film did well at the box office and was released on home video in 1981. The movie is remembered for two sequences involving a hotel and a supermarket.The brain is the mastermind behind a healthy body. Even a small damage to it is likely to hamper Replica Oakley Sunglasses the normalcy of other nerves in the body. Whenever there is a head injury, the first sign indicating the anomaly is the ‘headache’. This affliction is most common in athletes who encounter unexpected accidents every now and then during their sports activities. It can linger for a small duration of time, and there is no loss of consciousness in this type. This is most likely to happen in cases of minor mishaps. First aid is the immediate medical help in such cases.And you contrast that with the utter hypocrisy and cant of the Baseball Hall of Fame where they talk all about oh, no, Mark McGwire, Barry Bonds, http://www.ray-banbaratas.top steroids, they could never be in the Hall of Fame. Meanwhile, you have Tris Speaker in the Hall of Fame, who was in the KKK. You’ve got Ty Cobb in the Hall of Fame, who once beat up a crippled fan in the stands for saying that he had African American blood in his body.Some ways, it not much different than a team taking out a loan to sign a star, said Marc Edelman, who teaches sports law at City University of New York. spend now and deal with paying later. the same time in baseball, the advent of free agency led to a flood of contracts with deferred money as teams searched for ways to absorb larger and longer deals.

A lot more care [is required] for vagina owners, because it’s easier for bacteria to get in.” For this reason, “A fair amount of people, but not as common, will do number two,” she says. “Cleanup can be a very big job.”According to surveys, the http://www.cheapnfljerseysx.com Cheap ray bans average age at which diaper wearers begin to indulge themselves is 11 for boys and 12 for Oakley Sunglasses Outlet girls. That makes a bizarre kind of sense. That’s old enough to start freaking out about that whole “responsibility” thing, but still young enough to vaguely recall how cool it was not getting up to poop. Everyone we spoke to reported being into diapers for as long as they could remember: Sammy was two, wholesale football jerseys James was six, Riley was around four or five (and turning her underwear into diapers by stuffing them with napkins).

Calculations suggest NFL Jerseys China that about 9 million cubic metres of magma 3,600 Olympic swimming pools’ worth pushed into the crust each year during peak growth. The molten rock would have gathered in a chamber about 10 kilometres below the surface. “When you compare it to other places, like Yellowstone, we’re smaller than that,” Hamling says. “But it’s still pretty significant.”Isolated PSC Cholangiocytes Exhibit Abnormal Cell Morphology and Impaired Epithelial JunctionsWe next assessed morphological characteristics of isolated PSC cholangiocytes compared with NHCs. Compared with NHCs (Figure 2a), we found that isolated PSC cholangiocytes (Figure 2b) exhibit multiple distinguishing features, including enlarged size and robust filamentous (cytoskeletal) structures throughout the cell body. Given these differences, we next assessed whether isolated PSC cholangiocytes achieve Authentic NFL Jerseys the same level of ZO1 tight junction protein expression. Based on ZO1 immunofluorescence Replica Oakleys staining, we found that PSC cholangiocytes express Replica Oakley Sunglasses less ZO1 protein compared with normal cholangiocytes (Figure 2c). Moreover, based on TEER readings between days 2 and 5 post plating, we found resistance to be significantly lower (P in isolated PSC compared with normal cholangiocytes (Figure 2c). (a) Confluent normal human cholangiocyte (NHC) cell line form a tight monolayer after 7 days in culture, as compared with isolated PSC cholangiocytes (b), which are slow to become confluent after 7 days in culture and appear irregular and larger in size as compared with NHCs (both 20 magnification). (c) Cultured NHCs form tight junctions with neighboring cells, as indicated by expression of tight junction marker, Z01 (green), whereas cultured PSC cholangiocytes display fewer than normal tight junctions between cells as indicated by decreased ZO1 expression. (d) Transepithelial electrical resistance (TEER) was measured in normal cholangiocytes, H69 and NHC, and isolated PSC cholangiocytes to determine formation and integrity of tight junctions between cells. Isolated PSC cholangiocytes exhibit significantly lower TEER readings compared with both H69 and NHC cell lines cheap jerseys from days 2 to 5 (P indicating impaired tight junctions in the former.In 1993, after losing 11 of their first 12 games, the team won the last 4 games.

Beside that, just as we tweet few days ago, we built a release canditate for the l4d2 version of IHM. We also found a french gaming team which accepted to test and provide rigorous feedbacks. It should allow us to find out any missed bugs and solve them. Actually, we already fixed a lot of thing with the help of these french guys, even some unusual and outstanding exploits !

Finally, The most annoying thing is that the support of custom particles has been unfortunatly broken by Valve since the release of their last DLC “the Sacrifice”. We sincerely hope they will fix this before our release, but if this is not the case, we’ll do without it. Anyway, our custom particles should be packaged in the vpk, hoping that an upcoming update could fix this.

At last, we planned to release both version ( l4d 1.2 version and l4d2 version) this December, as soon as we finished playtests and corrections.

Until this, stay tuned ;)

Effect of the integrin activated Cheap NFL Jerseys China catenin/Wnt pathway on the functional responses of primary chondrocytes and BMMSCs to ECM stiffnessWe then explored the effect of the integrin activated catenin/Wnt pathway on the functional responses of primary chondrocytes and bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (BMMSCs) to ECM stiffness. Chondrocytes, which are surrounded by soft (1 2kPa) pericelluar matrix ECM, demonstrate http://www.fakeoakleysaler.com compliance dependent behavior15,29. Stiff ECM is known to induce a significant de differentiation of monolayer cultured chondrocytes with decreases of Sox9 and Aggrecan and an increase of ColI expression. catenin inhibitor cardamonin blocked the de differentiation of chondrocytes on the stiff ECM (Fig. 6a c), while Wnt1 and Wnt3a inhibited the phenotype maintenance on the soft ECM through down regulating Aggrecan and ColII expressions (Fig. 6d,e, supplementary Figure. 2a c). These data suggest an important role of the catenin/Wnt pathway in the phenotype maintenance of chondrocytes by ECM stiffness.Reporter: Alan gendreau doesn’t like to think of himself in his sexuality.
