A new version of Rocket Arena?
by DGhost @ [01:00 PM] October 25 2002

Fans of RA3 rejoice! After 2 years, it seems that Crt will release a new version of Rocket Arena supporting the latest point release of Quake (1.32). Here's the news:
The updated Quake 3 source has finally been released, and I am planning on making at least one more release for RA3. Since the major complaint in previous versions has been related to cheating, the new release will probably be QVM only, so that it can be compatible with Punk Buster in 1.32. This means no chat or MP3 playing, and the standard Q3 server browser.
If there are any other major bugs in RA3 that you think need to be addressed, feel free to e-mail me and I'll see what can be done.
And it's friday so don't forget to Quake this week end! :)

    PR 1.32 for Mac is out!
    by DGhost @ [09:20 PM] October 10 2002

    Okay, Graeme Devine just gave us a new .Plan update to let us know that the Point Release for Mac is out but as a beta only. He ask the players to test it and let him know about any bugs.
    Mac Point Release 1.32

    Just so I'm telling the truth, there is a TEST version of Mac OS X 1.32 up on our ftp (or it will be in a bit, isdn slowness). If anyone who is willing to test this in the next 24 hours can, and let me know how it goes I'd appreciate it. Let me know about performance, issues, crashes, etc. asap (while I sleep, been up for 36 hours now) and we'll get this final tomorrow. If you can, I'd really appreciate it if you can compare performance to previous Q3A installs on your computer. Add that dual monitor and drag the window between them, use two mice, drink coffee and use the rail gun at the same time.

    This is a complete update, all pak files are included, so this drags right over your main Q3A install. You'll need OS X 10.1 or later to run it. It addresses keyboard, mouse, OpenGL issues for OS X, and adds support for Gameranger (as well as all the other updates and fixes listed in the readme).

    Please email me directly with issues
    (zaphod@idsoftware.com).

    Thank you for your patience.


    Tribal CTF updates
    by DGhost @ [12:33 AM] October 09 2002

    At last! I can't tell you how much I love this mod each time I talk about it. Okay well let start with the bad news. The main coder MIT doesn't have too much free time to work on the mod anymore so he's leaving (that's the problem with free mod, we can't blame people for that :P). Also Appendix, lead artist is leaving and both positions will need to be replaced. At the same time they're looking for a modeller to work/finish on the weapons. Next part is some screenshots of a new map, Sentinel V, an old map that never make it to the last version is being revamped. And bot support are still on the list of things to be done (or almost done). Check out the 3 teams CTF mod in town: Tribal CTF.


    An interview with Tim Willits
    by DGhost @ [11:51 PM] October 08 2002

    Yadayadayada. A new interview @ The Gaming invasion where they got their hand on Tim Willits, Lead designer for Doom 3 (like I needed to introduce him, yeah /sarcastic). Talk about the engine of Doom 3, nothing new if you follow the subject carefully. Questions about some features the the game will and won't have. My favorites one from the interview:
    So you still havenít decided on the model of the BFG? No, I didnít even think about it until yesterday, but we will definatly have the BFG.
    Hehehe the BFG is a classic and they almost forgot it! But eh! I figure that there is more things to think about than fantazing about a BFG.

    by DGhost @ [11:45 PM] October 08 2002

    by DGhost @ [12:39 AM] October 07 2002

    Yes you read me right. Unreal Tournament 2003. A review by comparing it to Quake 3. Doom 3 and Quake 4 are a long way from here so while we wait let's either read the review on Captain Kirk's webpage, his personnal point of view on the game. You can read the article here. He's got some good points! And yet Unreal is still not like Quake.
