Digital Paintball™ is a modification for the Half-life engine. It seeks to bring the fast and furious gameplay of paintball to the home pc, and it seeks to do a damn good job of it. Previous retail paintball games have just totally stank (no offense to the developers), and we are trying to make a paintball game that is as realistic as possible, while still being fun to play.
The Digital Paintball is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
- changes system to actually have a paintball feeling
- not enough stuff, needs to be larger
It's a good game, but it has about the same amount of stuff to it that it did when I was playing it back when first released, not enough added in. Needs a poor man's mode and more rec ball, speed ball can get very repetitous and servers give too many credits. Would be nice if it had some sort of managable stat system so forwards could run quicker, ect. in exchange for a hit somewhere else. Lack of laying stance seems kinda crappy too, and I swear people are autoing their fire button cause some players fire way too quick way too long. All-in-all its not bad and hopefully mark 2 will fix the things that keep this iteration from being great.
Get it, if you have Half-Life you owe it to yourself to try any mod, if it sucks at least it was free.
Spyder Custom w/expansion chamber, venturi spiral bolt, and DYE barrel
playablilty, ease of controls, real name products.
First off this game is almost FREE!!!! what could be better. the reason I say almost is because you have to have the game Half-Life in order to play this game. I think this game is AWEsome. It is easy to install and set-up. Controls can be changed easily. Great name brand markers and barrels. Too many maps to name, and they are making more all the time. Several types of games from, elimination, capture the flag, center flag, and defend. It is all online play, but it is easy to find a game and most of the people are nice and fun to play with. In game chat is an excellent feature that allows you to talk to your teammates or everyone. Would like to see an expansion or update with more selections of markers and barrels, even extra upgrades.
Overall this game is outstanding. I enjoy playing for an hour or as little as 5 minutes. It just never seems to get old. Recommend this to everyone.
Great gameplay, great graphics etc for what they're restricted to by the game engine.
Outdated game engine, some immature players, not many upgrades, can be repetitive.
I've been with the game community since pre-release (I'm AdrenalinBoy) and have seen the game evolve past what it used to be. Of course, there are a little bit of errors now, but as for the selection, this is obviously the choice if you wanted to play Paintball on the computer. I'm not going to say much about it besides that if you're looking for a game to play for paintball, this is the way to go.
Essentially, a great game hindered by a lack of a better game engine... and a prone position.
in 2.2 the Impulse and the Shocker will be gone, they will be replaced by the Palmer Blazer.
regalrdless of what otehr people say the community is NOT retarded, the dev team knows a lot about paintball, and regardless of how the people act the simple fact is there no other paintball game that even compares to this game.
Simply THE BEST paintball game out there currently, no other game even compares to this game, even with its outdated engine it is still an awesome game. Seeming it is a modification its free. Also when Half-Life 2 comes out they will be realeasing DPB Mark2. The HL2 engine will be what all otehr engines to day will be based on.
Well this is a very fun game, I used to play it alot and now I play it occasionally. They have a decently nice selection of markers and the game play is very well made out. If you play games like Counter-Strike, you'll like this game. Many PBR members play also so it's fun to get a gang together and if you are like me, DESTROY THEM... heheh.... Fun game though.
Fun game, if you have Half - Life go download this game and play online.
Spyder esprit with an expansion chamber and bottom-line CO2. Im getting a new 16 inch barrel, too
Well, if its raining and there is no indoor paintball fields around you, I advise yyou get this FREE game. Its Fun because you can get different guns and play different maps and stuff. So, i advise you go get it. You can dowload it for FREE off of www.digitalpaintball.net SO GO GET IT NOW!
Get it it is hella-cool! AWESOMLY AWESOME. It is soo tight
Really cool game, a nice and small file size, cool maps. You can't get a boomstick with an excal, but I guess it is a good thing, then it would be way too awesome and everybody would use it. Also the guns are extremely inaccurate when you aren't aiming at somebody for some reason. Also when you crouch and lean the accuracy increases a lot. I've found the best combination is a shocker with boomstick and 1 pod, you will own!
Awesome cool game, great for when you can't play paintball in real life
RAT Impulse w/ ND Valve, ND SlickShot, ND Blade, Vert Max, Freak, ANS JackHammer II, RAT Hole SS Hammer, VooDoo bolt
- Good gun selection, fun maps, realistic
- Paint only breaks yellow, only two styles of jerseys, only two companies.
Overall, this game is very fun. Playing people online is blast. It's realistic, easy to get into, and it's just good ol' fun. I'm waiting for Digital Paintball 1.5 to come out in June. It will have even more guns (Orracle, Intimidator, Impulse...etc.) and more styles of play. I can't wait.
Get it! It's a blast! Great gun selection to choose from. Autococker, Angel, Spyder, Tippmann, Bushmaster, Phantom, SL68, PT Extreme, PGP, Automag, Excalibur, Shocker. Very fun and addicting. You can play people online which is very fun. The guns are realistic and the arching of the paint is so realistic. The maps are fun too.
This mod for Half-Life is super sweet.
1. The physics of the balls are real.
2. The choices for the guns is good, but could use a little bit of work
3. It could use more models
*NOTE: with a newly released customizer, u can change the models of the guns and players, as well as the paintballs, but no new guns.
4. The game is lots of addictive fun
5. TONS of maps (I like the PMI one in particular)
*I love the cocker - hold the fire button down and the back block stays back,
just as if u were holding down the trigger*
*You can stop potting up to take out a bunkerer, just like in real life*
It's attention to details like this that make the game very realistic and fun to play
DOWNLOAD THIS MOD RIGHT NOW!!! The game is still quite new, but it is lots of fun for the whole family. If you have Half-Life, then get Digital Paintball. NOW!
Half-Life Paintball release 2.1 - The newest I'd played. Doesn't even compare. The physics were screwy, the servers were awful, and were full of auto-whores.
CCI Phantom - Stock class, .45 frame, acid blue ano job.
Realism. Played just like real life.
A couple bugs, but it's beta.
Some great maps not played.
Well, this is a MASSIVE improvement over many paintball "simulations" out there over the internet. And words cannot describe how large an improvement it is over Wal-Mart paintball games. For the most part it's played similarly to real life paintball, except for the selection screen where you choose what kind of equipment you use. You have one hundred credits that you can use. Based on how good the equipment is overall, markers can have different prices. They range from ten credits for a backup pgp (although, like in real life, it's fun for primary.) to eighty credits for an AKALMP Excalibur. You can have four pods in your harness, and each pod is 10 credits. Barrels increase accuracy even more, you can use an armson stealth for twenty credits, a boomy for thirty, or the stock for free. Grenades are in this game, and are of some use for fifteen credits each. A personal favorite setup for me is the automag (50 credits), a boomstick barrel (30 credits.) and two pods of paint (20 credits) No wasted credits, great accuracy, and a stupid rate of fire.
Movement is pretty much what you would expect from a first person shooter. move forward, move backward, sidestep left, sidestep right, look up, look down, turn left, turn right, jump, duck, walk/run toggle. One thing I didn't expect was leaning out. Pretty much the same benefit as in real life, and just continues to add to realism, since you can snapshoot now. Very nice if you play with the pumps now and then.
A worthwhile download. 10 out of 10 since it's the best paintball game out there.
