Amnesia: Dark Descent Tools Released For PC, Mac Coming Soon
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 2 comments

Frictional Games recently released a toolset for the PC version of Amnesia: The Dark Descent. The tools, which are scheduled to be released for Mac and Linux soon, will allow fans of the horror adventure title to create their own custom stories to share with others.

Using the tools you can create your own "Custom Stories", which can then be shared with other users and be played by using the main menu entry with the same name. You can even create a "Total Conversion" if so wanted, but this would require quite a bit more work and is perhaps not our main intention with the tools.

So check out http://hpl2.frictionalgames.com for information and download. Currently the tools are available for Windows, with Linux and Mac releases coming as soon as possible.

We have provided some basic information on the HPL2 site, but as it is a Wiki, anyone can dig in and help expanding the information, tutorials and so forth. You can also check the Custom Story Forum section for discussions and downloading of any future user creations.

Football Manager 2011 Features Revealed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Sports Interactive recently released a list of new features in the upcoming Football Manager 2011. The soccer management simulation should be available before Christmas and, in addition to the list of features below, will include real-time contract negotiation, a revamped training system, and a number of match engine improvements.

New Features In Football Manager 2011:
Set Piece Creator – Much like Football Manager 2010’s Tactics Creator, we’ve now added a Set Piece Creator to the game which allows you to set up your set piece routines in a much more intuitive and user-friendly manner.

Press Conference revamp – Not just a new user interface, and not just 150+ new press conference questions, but also all of the previous 500+ press conference questions have been fully reviewed, with possible answers revised where necessary, leading to press conferences being more intuitive and in situ.

Match analysis improvements – Lots of new options available on the match analysis chalkboard, with offsides, free kicks, corners, throw ins, clear cut chances, half chances all now available to analyse via the system, as well as the option to show all of the players match actions at the same time, rather than having to look at them all separately.

Squad registration / squad number split – We’ve separated out the squad registration and squad numbering screens, so you can now give squad numbers to players who don’t need to be registered.

Newgen revamp – Newly generated players, or newgens as we call them, are now created using a new system that looks at player templates for different styles of player, as well as taking national traits into account, to ensure that the types of player in the game are constant throughout the life of your own saved game.

B-Team & Amateur revamp – Due to lots of feedback from our community, particularly from Spanish and Danish users, regarding the way that B teams and amateur work in the game compared to real life, we’ve had a revamp on the way they work to make them more accurate than ever before, including the chance to set up your own clubs B team at the start of the season in appropriate leagues.

More game features will be made available in the weeks ahead. Visit the links below for more information.
