Fursan al-Aqsa® Easy Mode, Modding Tools and Hebrew Language Support

After the request of many players who complained about the game's difficulty, I decided to add an 'Easy Mode' alongside the Modding Tools and Hebrew language support.

-----------------------------------------------------------

Since many players are not hardcore gamers, and since I want my game to appeal to as many players as possible, I decided to add an Easy Mode, as a custom MOD (instructions below), and take this oportunity to release the Modding Tools for the community, alongside many sample and crazy MODs.

Image

The Easy Mode increases the player health to 200 instead of 100, increases to 50HP the healing amount of each healthpack, increases to 100HP the extra health given by the body armor, increases to 25HP the health given for each headshot, increases to 50HP the health given for each knife kill and doubles the health for the player's vehicles on the bosses battles.

Now with the Easy Mode more casual players can enjoy and beat the game. I tested it too much, and even on the Easy Mode, the game still has it's challenging factor, but now without being too much frustrating for not hardcore gamers.

Image

We all know the importance MODs have for any game, and how it can be a true game changer and a reason for many games staying alive for several years to come. So thinking on this, I decided to release the tools to allow players to create and share MODs for Fursan al-Aqsa.

Due engine licensing questions, I am afraid I won't be able to share the full game editor for Fursan al-Aqsa, because I am using a custom build of the engine, which I did port to Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 some years ago, without EPIC Games authorization, however, even then, they were very kind with me. Instead of suing me in court, they allowed me to sign a custom engine license which allows me to use my custom build of their engine to develop my games, but they did not allow me to share from this engine, except the game itself with the files needed for it to run. In other words, I can not release the map editor and other engine tools, unfortunatelly.

Image

However, thinking on this fact, and also thinking on a way to allow ANYONE to MOD my game, without the need to have advanced technical knowledge of gaming development, 3d animations, programming and the such, I have found a very easy way to allow you to make and share mods of my game. Yes, the modding tools are a bit limited, however, you can do a LOT of crazy and cool things, and you can change thousands of gameplay features, and the only tool you need to use is Notepad++. Yes, you heard it, you can mod Fursan al-Aqsa using just a simple text editor.

To get started with Modding Fursan al-Aqsa, just download the Modding Tools here, and on the zip file you will find a very easy step-by-step tutorial:
https://www.moddb.com/games/fursan-al-a ... ding-tools

And to activate the Easy Mode, download and install this MOD, after you download the Modding Tools and read the instructions on how to install the mods:
https://www.moddb.com/games/fursan-al-a ... d-noobmode

And here you can download the sample mods I made:

About the Hebrew language support, since many Israeli players are enjoying my game, I think that this is nothing more than just to allow them experience this game on their language. the game now is fully localized to Hebrew and I even remade the trailers in Hebrew language:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h2ULN5ZOG3Y

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SG9FGXdMV2g

Last, but not least, I would like to ask, if you played my game, please, leave a sincere user review on Steam and also here on metacritic, alongside a score for my game:
https://www.metacritic.com/game/pc/furs ... qsa-mosque

Also please, rate my game here on IndieDB, on the community rating panel:
https://www.indiedb.com/games/fursan-al ... qsa-mosque

I hope you enjoy this new update and can't wait to see some crazy mods made by the community!

Cheers.

Fursan al-Aqsa is on Steam Summer Sales

Image

Buy the most BASED game of all times, which flipped Western Media and exposed the hypocrisy within the gaming Industry.

See what (based and redpilled) people are saying about Fursan al-Aqsa on metacritic:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IORMxilitJY

Fursan al-Aqsa: The Knights of the Al-Aqsa Mosque® is a Third Person Action Game on which you play as Ahmad al-Falastini, a young Palestinian Student who was unjustly tortured and jailed by Israeli Soldiers for 5 years, had all his family killed by an Israeli Airstrike and now, after getting out from the prison, seeks revenge against those who wronged him, killed his family and stolen his homeland, by joining a new Palestinian Resistance Movement called Fursan al-Aqsa: The Knights of the Al-Aqsa Mosque®.

This game is greatly inspired by Hideo Kojima's Metal Gear Solid, Call of Duty Modern Warfare, Insurgency Sandstorm, Max Payne and Goldeneye 007.

Fursan al-Aqsa: The Knights of the Al-Aqsa Mosque® is a game which addresses the Israel x Palestine conflict from a Palestinian perspective, breaking the cliché of portraying Muslim and Arabs as Terrorists, Bandits, Villains and the Americans/Israelis as the "Good Guys" and "Heroes" of History. This is the first game in the games industry which addresses such a sensitive topic, in a realistic way, showing the other side of history, which is very unknown by people, mostly here on west.

So buy Fursan al-Aqsa to join the BASED gamers department!

Steam Summer Sales begins on June 23.

Fursan al-Aqsa Remake and Mobile - First Look Trailer

In this article I showcase the first look at Fursan al-Aqsa Remake, the updated version of my game (developed now in Unreal Engine 4) and Fursan al-Aqsa Mobile, the portable version of this remake to allow those players who can't afford a gaming PC to enjoy the experience of playing the MOST BASED GAME of all times.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6c58VWOq_6s

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q92eITAvrn4

It has been more than two months which I do not post a new devlog article here, but for those who are following me, you already know I have been very busy, working like crazy on Fursan al-Aqsa Remake. So these last months I dedicated myself to study Unreal Engine 4, and thanks to all the updated tools of the engine, I was able to get the basic game framework and gameplay systems working perfectly and I created these two new trailers to showcase the progress on Fursan al-Aqsa Remake Development.

Image

As stated before, I am making two versions of the game, one for PC and other for Android (Fursan al-Aqsa Mobile). The portable version of this remake is to allow those players who can't afford a gaming PC to enjoy the experience of playing the MOST BASED GAME of all times. The game will be the same on two versions, but, just like the differences between the PC and PS3/Xbox360 versions of Fursan al-Aqsa "Classic", the Mobile is inferior in terms of quality, with low resolution textures and less visual effects, for the sake of allowing even old smartphones to run the game (think like a compressed version of the game to fit inside a mobile device). After feedback of many of my followers, I realized that the majority of middle-eastern gamers play on Mobile, so Fursan al-Aqsa Mobile is for those players. I mean, if you have an average gaming PC which can run most recent 3D games, there is no need to play the mobile version, since on PC you will have the best experience.

I plan to add more gameplay mechanics, to make the game more dynamic and fun to play. Now our hero learned parkour (as you can see on the trailer), I increased the jump height, and I totally removed the fall damage, so that means our hero will not be harmed even if he falls from a Skyscraper! I know it is not realistic, but this is fun. I am going to add other movements like vault jumping, roll, dodge, slide and wall running. I will still remake and improve the bullet time effect in Unreal Engine 4 among other things. I am looking to make some cool acrobatic action movements, very similar to My Friend Pedro. I want to make some INSANE action moments for Fursan al-Aqsa Remake, in sha Allah.

Image

About the graphics, yeah, I have done a revamp on the graphics but even then, they are not my focus. My focus is performance, and I want to allow even average gaming PC's to run Fursan al-Aqsa Remake. I mean, the requirements will be the same as the "Classic" Version, except that the GPU needs to support Shader Model 5 (any video card which support DirectX 11 can run Unreal Engine 4 games). So this is the final graphics quality, but as for the animations, I will improve these animations, add some more character animations, and more weapons for the final version of Fursan al-Aqsa Remake.

The game on my new Laptop (Acer Nitro 5 with 8GB RAM and a GTX1650 4GB, Core i5), which I was able to buy thanks to Allah (God) and to you, players who bought my game on Steam, the game runs at 70-90 fps, smoothly without any noticeable frames drop down. A friend of mine who has an RTX GPU, the game run at 180-200 fps, so I think it is very well optimized. Because this I am not focusing in too much graphics details, or 4K textures, I prefer to focus on performance, specially for an action game, an intense shooter, like Fursan al-Aqsa.

Image

Just something that I need to tell you, is that a group of Pro-Israel lawyers is trying to take down Fursan al-Aqsa
https://freebeacon.com/latest-news/onli ... -israelis/

Image

For all of those who played my game, you know that this game does NOT promote hate against Jews or the "Killing of Jews and Israelis". You all know that the point here is that Fursan al-Aqsa is the FIRST and until now the ONLY game who simply FLIPPED western media in the sense of how we, arabs and muslims are portrayed on videogames and movies.

Image

By the way, my game has NO element of the jewish religion, there is no indication that the enemy soldiers in this game are jewish (by the way, I know many IDF Soldiers who are atheist), so this accusation that my game promotes violence against jews, or that this game is anti-Semitism propaganda, are nothing but FAKE NEWS.

Image

So what is the problem on having Israeli Soldiers as the enemies on a videogame? Why they should always be the "Good guys"? Why Russian Soldiers can be killed on games? Why Arab Soldiers can be killed on games? Why Afghani Soldiers can be the "terrorists" in games? But why USA Soldiers and Israeli Soldiers must always be the heroes?

Image

Besides everything, you know that my games has a satirical tone, just like Mortal Kombat Fatalities. How can a Megalodon Shark be called by someone to come and eat a soldier in real life? How can someone double jump and fly in slow motion in real life? How can someone jump out from an airplane holding a RPG bazooka to shoot at an helicopter in real life?

Image

I have great hopes that Steam will keep preserving my rights for Freedom of Speech and allow my game there, since it is making a commercial success on their platform, and the players reviews are very positive, and most important is that my games does NOT break any Steam Guidelines and neither any law of any country.

This Remake will be free for those who own Fursan al-Aqsa on Steam, so BUY NOW and get the Remake as a free update once it comes out, in sha Allah. Even in the worst scenario, supposing my game gets banned from Steam, you will still get the Remake, even if that means I will manually send the game's files to each one who bought my game on Steam.

Support Fursan al-Aqsa!
