GTV @ the QuakeCon
by DGhost @ [07:57 PM] July 29 2003

Of course, like past years, we will be able to see the matches/tournaments of the QuakeCon, live through the GTV servers. Speaking of the devil, big update today on their webpage regarding the QuakeCon. Here's a small part of their udpate:
The Quakecon GTV network will be the largest one yet, with anticipated needs of 7000 spots for Quake 3 (1vs1 and CTF), and 3000 for RtCW. To help find your way around this mammoth network a "map" of all the GTV servers will be released in a week so you can connect directly to a server close to you. You can make watching GTV even easier by testing it out ahead of time. Try connecting to gtv.speakeasy.net (gtv.speakeasy.net:27965 for RtCW), and see the GTV Help if you have any problems.
4 days straight of games to see. I won't be able to watch them all, oh the drama!

    Quake 3 competition controversy @ the ESWC
    by DGhost @ [12:44 PM] July 10 2003

    For those of you who where not aware, the Electronic Sport World Cup is running at the moment in Poitiers, France. With tournaments of Counter Strike, Warcraft 3, Unreal Tournament 2003, there is also a small Quake 3 competition on invitation only. The website Cached.net got an excellent coverage about the competition. The Quake 3 competition is on the second round but you can already download the matchs on their website. The controversy? I'll copy/paste a small part from the article on Cached:
    As the final game of the first group stage was being played controversy hit. Fazz had learned that to avoid ending up in the same second stage group, the Russians, LeXeR and Cooller, had decided that either one would lose on purpose. Fazz, remembering what happened last year at WCG where ZeRo4 was knocked out after a plot by the Russians, did not want to see this happen and lied to the Russians that no matter the outcoome they wouldn´t end up in the same group. "Knowing" this, the Russians played to their full potential and won their games. After the game however fazz corrected his lies and thats when all hell broke lose.
    For all the details, read on Cached.net.

No name has been given to the game so far. Thank to PlanetQuake for the info!


    The Quake Expo
    by DGhost @ [01:37 PM] July 08 2003

    I realised that I spent a week without updating this webpage and I missed something very important (I had too much work last week). The Quake Expo is a good idea for Quake (the first, only) to create a virtual event (on the web only) for sharing ideas and tricks for editing Quake. Lemme give you a part of their FAQ:
    What is Qexpo and when will it take place?

    Qexpo is to Quake 1 what a meeting like E3 is to game developers. It's a chance for all Quake 1 coders, mappers, skinners and modelers to get together during a limited period of time (6th to 13th of July) to show their skills. Unlike E3, Qexpo is a virtual meeting, that is, the meeting place is a site (http://www.qexpo.com/) and not a "real" place. However, much like E3, Qexpo also offers booths (even if virtual) and many opportunities for Quake 1 fans to get together, during IRC and QuakeWorld parties.
    Okay now that the introduction is done, I've browse some pages in the booth sections and I must say I'm really impress! Even if Quake 1 is still old, it's really not dead yet (even more alive since the code is now part of the free domain and with projects like Tenebrae, Darkplaces, Telejano and many more). Some original ideas also, like this 2D fighting game or Quarnage, an RTS game. Bring out your old cd of Quake from that dusty corner and try out something new with some of these mods.


    Tools for Quake 3
    by DGhost @ [01:15 PM] July 08 2003

    AnnihilatioN by own-age and a contest
    by DGhost @ [01:37 PM] July 24 2003

    Okay, shame on me again, I had a video file lost on my hard drive for the last 2 weeks and I completely forgot about it until today when I was missing some space and found back the video. It was released by the website Own-age and it's about 15 minutes long. Really well made, the synchronisation of the music is excellent with the frags. You can get all the details on the file here. Also, take note that the website Own-age has started a contest of the best Quake 3 frags video. Please refer here for all the details about the contest itself!


    An interview with Sonic Mayhem
    by DGhost @ [01:47 PM] July 08 2003

    The new WTF-Q3A MapPack is out
    by DGhost @ [01:48 PM] July 08 2003

    After many weeks of devellopement, the new map pack for Quake 3 Arena, WTF is ready to be downloaded! 14 maps for CTF, there is 2 flag per team (yes I said 2) and each map are designed for one weapon. If you weren't aware also, this map pack is the second one for the WTF team. Check out their download page for both files here.


    xCTF : hide and seek the flag, ctf style
    by DGhost @ [05:32 PM] July 02 2003

Each team got to find it. xCTF support also some other mod of gameplay which is: Stopwatch Mode, Instagib, CaptureStrike and Rocket Arena mode. Current version is 1.0.
