» Venture December 2014 Update

This update consists of gameplay videos showcasing the Venture Prototype Story COOP Campaign. The game's stealth mechanics are still in a very early state and therefore have not been applied during those recordings, so it basically is just coop monster bashing (arching) testing performance and coop functionality of the newly implemented maps. 

Venture is a Doom3 fantasy-medieval-steampunk COOP Total Conversion. Click “Read More” to view the latest demo videos.

Q2Cafe 2015 Mapping Contest!

25 01 15 - 02:58

Got this in my e-mail not long ago so I'm passing it along to you awesome mappers out there!

Q2 Cafe is proud to announce the annual Quake 2 Mapping Contest for 2015! There's no pressure and we're pretty flexible with the dates. This contest is about touching base with our past mappers and expanding on the fun experience and group activity we all miss :)

Couple old school mappers are already psyched to have this contest in order to showcase their latest work and mapping skills in a competitive venue like the good old days.

All creative entries are welcome, big or small, and will help make this Mapping Contest a success. We didn't have a contest since 2011, so this one should be extra special, and we would hate for you to miss out on it. We're always looking for talented mappers to help bring exciting content to the people within the Community. I hope you are willing to join this great event this time around and make something fun and exciting with us. So please come by, leave a comment and cast a vote here:

[LvL Updates] Start the year with 3

22 01 15 - 19:20

Back from a short break at ..::LvL. This update contains 6 maps in three release. To be honest, these are not the best maps that have ever been on ..::LvL, but they are also far from the worst too :]

* The Edge (2) by V1979
* The Double Camping Grounds by V1979
* Mech by r3x.theCat

Videos for the first two and panoramas for all.

In other news, there is now a ..::LvL Android App. The App is in a beta stage and features may be added in the future. For now, the only real advantage over the web site are notification (which can be disable).

You can see screens over at the Doom HD site and comment on the id Tech Forums.

This happened a several days ago but a dead DSL model & some Windows issues prevented me from posting about it.
