Haste, creator of the Alternate fire mod, has released a new version of his mod, Ultra Freeze Tag. Fixing a lot of bugs that the previous release had, the new version will also work for Mac OS X users.


Some news about Fortress
by DGhost @ [12:22 PM] November 28 2002

The Planet Quake 3 Fortress website has some news for us lately concerning the next version of the mod. The team is working on a 2.3 release (and it will be dedicated to a Quake 3 Fortress player, Zapped Again).

On a different note, I've just watched yesterday a really nice video of Quake 1 Team Fortress. It's not everyday you have the chance to see a video like this. You can download it here (the file is 186 megs). There is a lot of nice move, a must see!


Did you said mapping?
by DGhost @ [11:47 PM] November 27 2002

Well I'll give you some quickies on mapping: I just read on The Quake 3 house that the models Re-creation was released almost one year ago. If you don't know that pack and want some new models for your maps you can download it here.

Next is something new at the The leak spot (a map database reviews) wich is called Q3Map2 Toolz. A really nice tool that help when you are mapping. I won't list all the features of the software but it's worth checking!

Anyway just check out the author's website: HrOQuake III. There is a lot of tools to help mappers.

And to finish, just saw this one on ..::LVL, there is new community map pack (1) made by the CMP team. It should be a must to be downloaded in your baseq3 directory! ;)


DK2 Mistress @ Polycount
by DGhost @ [01:46 PM] November 27 2002

Robert Duffy just released a .Plan informing us that a new Quake 3 PR has been released (for linux only) making it 1.32b. I won't list all the changes/fixes because there is a lot of them (just go read the .Plan you lazy). You can download the PR on IDsoftware's ftp but for some reason it won't respond on my connection.

We all love jump tricks!
by DGhost @ [11:18 PM] November 20 2002

Yeah we do! Well if you like watching some nice tricky jumps in Quake 3 then this will be for you. And if you also like space ctf (ctf4) then you'll love this piece! AscendWand from his website, CTF4.com has released last week a video (using the XviD codec) showing a lots of trick jumps! The video is 7 minutes and weight 430 megs. Pretty heavy but really worth it!


Quake 3 Battlebots: update
by DGhost @ [01:13 PM] November 20 2002

F4nt0m45 from Planetquake sent me an email yesterday to give us an update on their mod: Battlebots. They have some new screenshots of their color smoke trails, projectiles and bullet sparks. Adding also the classic runes of regen, resist, damage, vampire and ammoregen (that bring me back so many memories)! And to finish this, the Battlebots team is looking for some beta testers!


The evil unleashed: more informations
by DGhost @ [05:57 PM] November 22 2002

After posting the news about the The evil unleashed I got an email from Lankamp, lead programmer of the team giving me more information about the project:
The Evil Unleashed is not a Quake 2 Total Conversion. It's an entire new game. The engine has Quake 2 as a base, but has expanded far above that. It has even far better quality than Quake III: Arena.

Our website has moved to http://teu.quakepit.com, so if you could change that, I would appreciate that. BTW, you can read an interview with our team on www.3dnewz.com where we set out some exiciting new details on the game's engine.

The engine will be more tweaked the couple of weeks, and we are hoping to get near 65% of Doom III quality.


An interview with Fatal1ty
by DGhost @ [03:18 PM] November 19 2002

I just finished reading this interview with Fatal1ty and it's really good. PlanetQuake3.net got some good stuff with that. Go read it!

Alright, a new Quake 2 total conversion called The evil unleashed has just started off! Introduction:

New models@ Polycount
by DGhost @ [11:36 PM] November 12 2002

Yaaa, I always love new models! With Unreal 2003 out, there is a lot of models for this game but I am impress that there is even new models for Quake 3 that can match the ones from Unreal. Move along Unreal lover, this is a Quake page and yes my opinion is biased! Alright check out Binky for Quake 3 (and yes, even Unreal 2003). Next one is so fun, check out Boneyard a nice Zombie cowboy with a cartonn look. Beautifull work! All models @ Polycount!


What is Elemental fusion?
by DGhost @ [09:51 PM] November 12 2002

I always love to give you some bits of my life sometimes. So for a follow up about my computer, I have resintalled windows 3 times to find the problems. Yeah, it's working! Alright enough with that stuff. I always like to present you a new mod. And this one believe me falls in the weird type. Elemental fusion propose team play on a new flavor (of the month?). One team versus the other one. And the two teams being characters from Dragon Ball Z versus Squaresoft's characters. Yep that's the deal! And as the mod progress they should release some new kind of gametype like: Hold The Copyright, Duel, Story and of course, more.

Doom on your phone
by DGhost @ [01:53 PM] November 06 2002

I'm always trying to find something original for you, readers, to enjoy. Well today is my lucky day! I found this on /., Doom (the original, of course) on a cell phone! Yes now you can frag while you are away from your computer. The game is intended for the Nokia 7650 model only. It's free but the game is the shareware with only the first episode. If someone has a try on it, please post your comments, I would like to have some feedback on it! Check out the webpage of Wildpalm for the game!

Doom 3 alpha leaked
by DGhost @ [01:53 PM] November 04 2002

As many of you probably already know, we learned this week end that a Doom 3 alpha (the version presented @ the E3) was leaked on the net. Of course it's warez, nothing official. Anyway this is an alpha and of course IDsoftware got the latest version but this give us a bunch of new pictures to enjoy! Official words from mister Carmak on /.:
"No, this was not leaked on purpose.

Yes, we are upset about it, and it will have some impact on how we deal with some companies in the future, but nothing drastic is going to change in terms of what support is going to be available.

Making any judgements from a snapshot intended for a non-interactive demo is ill advised."

John Carmack
That's a good advice! I can wait a few month for a good product, I don't mind!

    by DGhost @ [12:17 PM] November 04 2002

  • Punkbuster support (installer included)
  • F13 key brings down console for international keyboards
  • NSEvent event timing added for keyboard/mouse events
  • Optional IN_ cvar for mouse scaling to avoid Mac OS X bug
  • larger default zone/hunk memory for mods
  • vm compiler provides full jump/branch support for all mods
  • support for 11khz sound (non-default) for speed
  • keyboard repeat rate left untouched on exit
  • Gameranger launch support
  • Numpad support added / French numpad support added
  • Have fun fraggin' with the new PR!

    Battlebots is out!
    by DGhost @ [04:18 PM] November 02 2002

Then I suggest that you read the about section on their website. If you want to improve your fraggin skills but are lacking some humans opponents then you should check out Battlebots!
