LuigiEspadachin Attempts to Play Angel of Darkness Revival - But With A Twist!
 
Hi there,

So eight years ago, I had a little review series known as LuigiEspadachin attempts to play Angel of Darkness.

https://www.tombraiderforums.com/sho...d.php?t=181258

But if you recall, I had to stop the series to exenuating circumstances and didn't return to it. But that's about to change.

I've recently started Twitch streaming. So I thought, why not bring the series back, but in Twitch stream form? Yes, it means we're starting over, but that's okay.

We're hoping to get things moving on Wednesday 13th February at 20:30 GMT. Don't worry if you can't attend, I'll link to the VODS once we're done and they'll make their way to YouTube as well.

I hope to see some of you there. :)

Part 1 (Beginning to Le Serpent Rouge)


Part 2 (St Aicard's Graveyard to Louvre Storm Drains)


Part 3 (Louvre Storm Drains to Tomb of Ancients)

Part 5 (The Hall of Seasons to The Monstrum Crime Scene)


Part 6 (The Monstrum Crime Scene to Bio-Research Facility)


Part 7 (Bio-Research Facility to The Vault of Trophies)

Part 8 (The Vault of Trophies until the end of the game)

I recently read that thread and appreciated your style! Besides, your analysis of the game was very accurate.
I like more to read texts, I do not know if I will follow you. But this is me.

Sadly, Twitch won't load on my phone so I might miss out on this but I went back and reread your AoD review thread and it was super enjoyable :D
Keep it up, old school playthroughs/reviews/let'splays are one of the best things about TRF, and yours are great :tmb:

That's not a problem man. I'll be putting these streams on YouTube at some stage.

And thank you both for the comments on the original series. Nice to see people are still finding it years later.

LuigiEspadachin 13-02-19 20:21

Just wanted to alert that the first stream will begin in 10 minutes. Come along, have a few laughs. We're not going to go too long for this first stream, an hour, an hour and a half max.

https://www.twitch.tv/nevbyte

HarleyCroft 13-02-19 21:26

Hope it's going well! :) I'm very interested to see the resulting footage on the Tube :D

LuigiEspadachin 13-02-19 21:39

So we've not played too long for today (Got to the Parisian Ghetto). But thanks to all who attended and was patient through the technical issues we had. I'm not sure when the next stream will be because we've had some lagging and dropped frames so another game will fill the schedule while I resolve these issues (thought I had addressed them in testing but have received reports of it being laggy). But when I'm ready to start again I'll let you know and an edited version of the first video should be ready in due course.

So yes, things to work on, but I'm going to count this first stream a success. :D

EDIT: When the next stream happens I think we'll be starting over anyway. I've just been watching the VOD back and 13 minutes in the game audio cuts out. I wasn't aware of it as I could hear the game fine. Apologies for those who came last time, but I'd rather have videos to watch where you can hear the game and myself rather than just me.

LuigiEspadachin 21-04-19 09:48

We'll be having another attempt at an AOD stream today at 14:00 (So in roughly about 3 hour 12 minutes) . Not to worries if you can't join in, it will be on YouTube in the next couple of days. :) Hopefully this'll go smoother than the last time.

Have you tried my patched - 2019 360 version.

It works fine both with gamepad and keyboard & mice.

And that's all it affects - the controls - so you don't need to worry about messing your other settings - just copy the bin folder inside your game directory.

Nakamichi has improved some of the game effects so you may consider his multi-patcher on top of my executable as well.

LuigiEspadachin 21-04-19 12:55

^ Thanks for reminding me of that. I will definitely look into it, but I just want to have one stream first to see if I can run the game without issues

We're getting ready to start! Come join us!

LuigiEspadachin 21-04-19 19:55

And I feel that went fairly well. Thanks to anyone who attended this first proper stream of Angel of Darkness. Below is the slightly edited down VOD of the first stream. (Yes, there is a few minutes of gameplay where the framerate slows down at the beginning, but it does get sorted out and I've left at least part of that first section in for comic effect)



We're hoping to do another one next Sunday, 27th April at the same time (14:00)

sasho648 28-04-19 20:31

I see you've chosen the 360 controls - currently however they lack free rotations. Free rotations allow lara to rotate in previously locked out positions (for example in the transition between lara running and standing still) - for this you can add config file into your root game directory.

Currently it'll auto spawn you into the Boaz level but you can change it to any other level by right clicking on the file - edit and specifying a level name inside the Level= field (you can get level names from the data/maps folder)or you can set ShowTitle=1 if you wish to view the title screen instead.

Additionally by changing the level to invent you can go pick up the dualies (use above link for the config file though - the one in this thread doesn't contain the free rotations).

Any feedback to the current controls is appreciated - additionally you can change the free rotations yourself by tinkering with the CONFIG.INI.

Thanks for using my patch :) and keep up the streams.

Samz 28-04-19 20:40

I did a kinda in-depth guide on the dual pistols if you're willing to jump through a few hoops for them as it's sadly not as simple as picking up some easily visible pistols in invent then carrying them for the rest of the game as you'll need to use Debug mode.

https://www.tombraiderforums.com/sho...d.php?t=222357

You technically don't have to restart the game to get the duals but it requires more tinkering around and might force you to level skip at the end of a level as most level-triggers that are one-way at the end of levels stop working after you beat them once.

You're welcome. It took some time to get used to but I'm adapting to it slowly. Thanks for the recommendation. :) And I realise I credited you completely wrong with your TRF name, sasho648. So apologies for that. Brain completely went blank. I got the Twitch name right though, that's good at least. I'll make an acknowledgement of it next stream.

If I were to ask though because I couldn't obviously find the function on the 360 controls - Is there a button in there somewhere for the Load/Save/Quit menu? I found the one for items but couldn't figure out where the pause menu was and just used the Esc key for that. As for the rotations, I'm good on that front thank you. I'm happy with the way they are atm. :)

But yes, we had another stream today from St Aicard's Graveyard to the Louvre Storm Drains. It will be on YouTube and TRF in a few days, just need to make a couple of edits to make it TRF-friendly.

Not entirely sure when the next stream will be, but I'll post it here when I decide.

Open Registry editor - navigate to
Quote:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Core Design\TombRaiderAngelOfDarkness\1.0\Input
.

Then find the key with name XBOX 360 in it (or the name of your controller), then navigate to the sub-key Game. Then on key TYPE_00002308 right click Modify and set value of 5.

This will replace the right joystick button to enter the pause menu instead of debug roll.

If you don't see the Game sub-key you would need to enter the game - remap some of the keys (on the controller) and then enter the save-game menu (no need to save) then exit the game from both quit game options. This should hopefully create it (note that remapping the weapon cycle keys won't work for some reason - you need to remap some of the already mapped keys).

Part 2's YouTube VOD is here! (St Aicard's Graveyard to Louvre Storm Drains) -



Next stream will be Sunday May 19th. Not next week as I want to use that Sunday to go watch Detective Pikachu. :ton:

Woops 05-05-19 19:57

Good luck! Enjoying your playthrough so far :)

Thanks. That's appreciated ^^ Any feedback is welcome.

Speaking of feedback, had to reupload Part 2 just to correct a minor issue.

I'm putting together a rough schedule for my streams, not finalized yet but this is roughly what I want to do when:

Sunday 19th May (Hopefully want to finish Paris in this stream or at least get most of it done, or if not during the next one)
Sunday 2nd June (Finishing off the remainder of Paris, starting Prague)
Sunday 9th June (Hopefully the game should be finished by then, if not, we'll have an extra stream for it)

LuigiEspadachin 19-05-19 10:52

Stream happening today, at 6:00pm GMT

We'll try and get through as much of Paris as we can but I'm not holding my breath. We'll see how it goes. See you in 6 hours 9 minutes if you can make it. :D

LuigiEspadachin 19-05-19 20:27

Quick question for those keeping up with the VODs - This latest run turned out to be 2 hours 49 minutes long (Louvre Storm Drains to The Tomb of Ancients). Certain elements will need to be trimmed down anyway but I still think it will run quite a bit longer than normal. Would people prefer two separate videos or one per stream like normal?

In the meantime, enjoy these little highlights:

LuigiEspadachin 31-05-19 06:08

So I went for a slightly trimmed single video. Part 3 is here!



No AoD stream this Sunday as Shenmue II will be played instead. AoD will return soon

LuigiEspadachin 25-06-19 17:08

After a bit of a hiatus AOD will be going back on the schedule for streaming. Sunday 14th July. Will be updating closer to the time with the start time.

LuigiEspadachin 14-07-19 09:25

Stream will be going live today at 1:00pm GMT. See you in two and a half hours if you can make it.

:D

Edit: And we are live!

VOD of 14th July's stream of Angel of Darkness. The Hall of Sal-er, I mean the Hall of Seasons.

LuigiEspadachin 18-08-19 09:27

We're going to be streaming again with AOD, today at 15:30 GMT:
https://www.twitch.tv/nevbyte

LuigiEspadachin 26-08-19 14:37

Angel of Darkness continues as we begin Lara's adventures in Prague. Starting now
https://www.twitch.tv/nevbyte

LuigiEspadachin 28-08-19 21:48

The VOD of 18th August's Angel of Darkness stream is now up.



The VOD of 26th August's stream will follow suit in the coming days. It will need a tad bit more editing work than the minimum I usually do as the live broadcast was plagued with some technical issues. (Two of which were caused by the game, one by myself) In the meantime enjoy this little clip:

https://www.twitch.tv/nevbyte/clip/G...PelicanPMSTwin

Also, I see maybe two or three more streams out of this before we finish the game. (Although I feel like the last stream will be a longer one as a finale). I don't know when it will appear on the schedule, but I'm thinking either Tomb Raider Chronicles or Tomb Raider Legend as the next TR game to stream.

LuigiEspadachin 05-09-19 21:33

Update relating AOD streams:

ANGEL OF DARKNESS FINALE WEEKEND
I've took a look at how many Angel of Darkness levels we have left and I want to make most of Prague a big weekend finale. Saturday 14th September and Sunday 15th September we'll be playing Angel of Darkness on stream.

Streams will be four hours long rather than the typical two to allow for this. Two streams over two days.

If by chance we end up finishing Angel of Darkness before end of the weekend, then we will have Tomb Raider Legend as a backup game.

Times are to be confirmed. As usual the VODs will be on YouTube if you can't make it, but I'd love it if people could. :)

(Incase you're wondering where it will start as the latest VOD hasn't uploaded yet: The weekend event will start from Bio Research Facility, where we left the last stream off)

LuigiEspadachin 10-09-19 21:36

26th August VOD is up:



Also, times confirmed for the finale weekend -

Saturday 14th September - 18:00 BST
Sunday 15th September - 15:00 BST


All times are GMT. The time now is 00:04.
