@AncientBoi , this game should be on the ps3 and 360 as well, so if you have a hacked system, you can play it. I'm assuming it's built using unity? I've tried some unity projects by another member for the 360, and they were really well done. it was @Gunz4Hire who made three or four games for the 360. I tested them all, and all worked on my jtag without a problem.
Yes, my game runs at 60 fps the most of the time on both PS3/XBOX360.

Here is the PS3 Demo - https://www.indiedb.com/games/fursa...he-knights-of-the-al-aqsa-mosque-demo-ps3-hen

XBOX360 - https://www.indiedb.com/games/fursa...e-knights-of-the-al-aqsa-mosque-demo-xbox-360

Because intelligence in times of war means attacking your enemies with their own weapons.

This is a driveable Merkava Mark IV Tank the player will use in Mission 7 of Fursan al-Aqsa, the attack at Shizafon Army Corps Base.

Fursan al-Aqsa Teaser Trailer - Light the Fire

This is a teaser trailer for a brand new mission I just finished for Fursan al-Aqsa: The Knights of the Al-Aqsa Mosque® Campaign.

Fursan al-Aqsa meets Mortal Kombat

Ahmad al-Falastini Wins, Flawless Victory, Double Fatality!

Toasty!!!


This is a teaser trailer for a brand new mission I just finished for Fursan al-Aqsa: The Knights of the Al-Aqsa Mosque® Campaign. This map is based on Shizafon Armored Corps Base, an Israeli Training Base located in the middle of the Negev Desert, in Southern Palestine Region. This base is mainly used as a Training Field for Vehicles Operations, which include military exercises with Merkava Tanks and Apache Helicopters. Your main mission will be to infiltrate in this base, hijack a Tank Prototype and use it destroy the entire base with all it's soldiers and military vehicles.

I hope you enjoy this new trailer, specially the Intro Cutscene, which I think it is trully insane, freaking cool and gruesome, in the best Mortal Kombat style. By the way, I had to reduce my game's resolution to be able to capture this gameplay at a reasonable framerate, 20-25 fps, however, the game, as you have seen in the demo, runs smoothly at high framerates, up to 500 fps.

Here follows some Behind the Scenes work:

Thanks my friend, yeah, I used the default UDK water shader but tweaked some properties, and also I added a custom HDRI reflection map to make that water reflection effect. The screenshots and the trailer are from the PC Version, but on the PS3 and Xbox360 it looks the same, just a bit blurry because the lower texture resolution.

I might be able to test the game for you, but it might be easier if it's the 360, since I don't have an external hdd with the ps3. all my ps3 games are on the internal hdd.

Fursan al-Aqsa® Official Launch Trailer + Accolades

Finally, after many years of dedication and hardworking, also many sleepless nights, Fursan al-Aqsa, the full game, is available now!

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

Resisting the Zionist Occupation is NOT Terrorism!


Here is the original trailer in MP4 Full HD 1080p 60fps format:
https://mega.nz/file/dktBFB4Q#4qpZm_t0FB3Ti7mM-7eUCfnb6hs6aO5iBcSDdryGC9E

Fursan al-Aqsa® is an Action Game which addresses the Israel x Palestine conflict from a Palestinian perspective, breaking the cliché of portraying Arabs as Terrorists. You will play in missions across Palestine with many objectives to accomplish, epic battles, powerful guns, vehicles to drive and more.

release-banner-full.1.png


Available now on Steam (PC version):
https://store.steampowered.com/app/1714420/Fursan_alAqsa_The_Knights_of_the_AlAqsa_Mosque/

And Gamejolt (PS3 and Xbox360 versions):
https://gamejolt.com/games/fursan-al-aqsa-knights-of-al-aqsa-mosque/573682

Obs: The console version of this game is a Homebrew App, which means it only runs on Hacked Consoles (PS3 CFW/HEN, Xbox360 RGH/JTAG). And even though the content is the same (Campaign + Multiplayer), the PS3 and Xbox360 versions of Fursan al-Aqsa are inferior to the PC version, regarding graphics and performance. Also the consoles version, specially the PS3 version of Fursan al-Aqsa suffers from memory overload, which, sometimes causes missing textures and invisible objects (rendering problems), sometimes some textures may become too much blurry, and so on. Also On both consoles, due a problem on accessing the console's hard disk file system to write the save data, I had to make all the missions unlocked by default, but if you play from Mission 1 the game will take you to Mission 2, Mission 3, Mission 4 and so on. So that means I tried my best, and even with these small bugs, you can play the game and enjoy the gameplay experience on PS3 and Xbox360. I'm proud of this achievement, and I'm sure that despite its flaws, Fursan al-Aqsa is the most advanced homebrew game ever developed for the PS3 and XBOX360.

I thank you all for these years following my project, interacting with me, rooting for me, giving me words of support, and specially for playing my game's demo released last year on Steam, and giving me your precious feedback. Thanks to you, players and supporters of Fursan al-Aqsa, I was able to make this game even better than the Demo, fixing many bugs and shortcomings, polishing the game to make this one of the best Indie Games of 2022!

I hope you enjoy the full game, and please, write a small Steam User Review, because this is very important to help my game grow on Steam.

My last words are a request for help and support. As you may know, I am working solo on this game, without any financial help, or funding from a Publisher or anyone. I self funded this project with my incomings from my job of Web Designer. However, due the Covid Pandemics, I lost my work of Web Design, and now I have on this game, Fursan al-Aqsa, a hope for a new source of incoming, for me being able to spend on behalf of my family. So please, buy my game to support me. Each copy sold will help me too much.

About the game size

The download size of this game is just 9.8 GB. After the installation it grows to 18.71GB, because this game has modding support and all game's assets are decrypted. However, if you want to free some disk space, you can free 3GB if you delete these 2 folders and the files inside them:

FursanAqsaGame\UDKGame\Movies\Story
FursanAqsaGame\UDKGame\Soundtrack

The first folder contains the Story Videos in MP4 HD format, for all languages. I included them inside the game folder so players don't need to go to YouTube for watching the game's Story Videos. The second folder contains the game soundtrack in wav format, which I included after many player's requesting this to me.

Obs: Due the modding support, the first time you run the game, it will ask to rebuild the game's scripts. Just click on 'Yes' and after the rebuild finishes, launch the game again.

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.

MODS-2.png


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.

MODS-1.png


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.

MODS-3.png


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-...mosque/downloads/fursan-al-aqsa-modding-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-aqsa-knights-of-al-aqsa-mosque/addons/faqsamod-noobmode

And here you can download the sample mods I made:
https://www.moddb.com/games/fursan-al-aqsa-knights-of-al-aqsa-mosque/addons

release-banner-full-HE.png


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:




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/fursan-al-aqsa-the-knights-of-the-al-aqsa-mosque

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

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

Cheers.

Thank you.

The idea of selling games for hacked consoles is honestly brilliant. It gives developers more freedom than the official stores would.
I am a registered playstation developer, however, sony is no accepting PS3 games anymore, since playstation 3 is a discontinued console, not officially supported anymore. So what I did was just like many game developers do nowadays, release new games for old consoles, like NES, GENESIS, COMODORE, ATARI, and so on.

Sony approved my game concept to release officially on the PS4 and PS5, however, after thinking a lot, I think, in my case, it is not commercially feasible for me, I think it is not worth, simply because we need to buy the PS4 and PS5 devkit. I can not reveal their price due NDA, but they are expensive, and in my case, being a brazilian citizen, they will cost for me, including the shipping cost and taxes and fees, 2x more than USA developers, in example, pay.

I think that Steam and Google Play, in my case, are the best official stores to earn a profit with my game. I like consoles, however, I think that PC, specially Steam, will be the top notch gaming platform. Not even EPIC Games Store or GOG Galaxy can dethrone Steam.

And most thing I liked about Steam, is that they indeed preserve the developers freedom of creativity. Steam did not answer the request of many Israeli Political Groups asking to remove my game from their platform. EPIC Games Store did not accept my game, neither GOG Galaxy. They simply answered that they dont see my game a fit for their platforms.

The PS3/XBOX360 versions of my game are more a personal challenge for me, they did not sell well, but I made these versions because I always wanted to make a game for PS3 and XBOX360.

Cheers.

Fursan al-Aqsa is on Steam Summer Sales

steam_summer_sales_faqsa_EN.png


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:


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.
