Tastyspleen 500 Returns!

16 06 17 - 17:14

2017-06/ts500_banner.png

What is the Tastyspleen 500 you ask?  It's a 500 frag limit FFA over on the Tastyspleen servers!  The event is being held on June 24th @8pm EST (handy dandy timezone converter, just select "America/Toronto" as the "From Time Zone" and then pick yours).   It's a cinch to join too: just connect to the server!  You can connect via the server's IP address (67.228.69.114:27999).  

If you're interesting in doing some other Quake 2 gaming, check out Tastyspleen's list of servers.  Also, they have a Quake 2 Starter Pack if you've never played but want to give it a try.  I HIGHLY recomend you give it a try!

[LvL Updates] Four! (sort of)

Four releases have been add to ..::LvL - Two of the releases are modified versions of the same authors earlier work. Another one of the levels is a very old test map that the author has decided to release.

Doom VFR

12 06 17 - 12:23

This looks cool (and I won't be able to run it I'm betting!) Doom VFR is a new VR game based around the last Doom game, but in VR. Looks like Robo Recall but in Doom 2016. Right now the weapons don't look exactly like Doom weapons, and you have teleportation movement (I've tried QuakeVR with normal movement and I get sick) and (I'm assuming based on every VR game I've tried, even Quake VR ports) can dodge incoming fire by moving around. Looks like it might have some slow motion like Robo Recall.

I don't want to pass judgment until I got to play it, but I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked the last Wolfenstien that I bought Doom for full price, so id seems to be dolling out some good stuff since the Bethesdia acquisition!

Doom 3 BFG Min Art Assets For Free

30 05 17 - 01:03

Brendon Chung (Blendo Games) has released The Doom 3 BFG Edition Starter Kit. Just like his Doom 3 Starter Kit, it's a set minimum assets to run the engine and allow you to start using the engine to create your own games. It's been tested with Robert Beckebans' RBDoom3BFG port. I don't happen to have C++ installed at the moment so I can't test it out, but leave something in the comments how this works for you.

Doomed Symphony

Oneofthe8devils posted a video on Youtube showing off Mars City Security footage to Doom 2 music remixes. Watch an enjoy! Download Mars City Security here.

Doom 3 on Three OS's at Once!

09 05 17 - 11:37

Oneofthe8devils shows Doom 3 running multiplayer from three OS's at once. He's got a Linux server, Windows and Android clients. Sweet! Hard to imagine that in 2004 when Doom 3 was released the best computers had a hard time running at best settings, not a tablet can run the game multiplayer! You can also do the same with id's previous game thanks to the GPL licenses on their engines.

[LvL Updates] Remix, remake and something else

02 05 17 - 02:25

A strange mix of three at ..::LvL - https://lvlworld.com - sst13 has released a "Matrix" version of Q3DM6. Technically it is very impressive, gameplay is a little annoying. And we have a remake of ztn's Painkiller.

 In other news, ..::LvL is now only delivered over HTTPS / SSL / TLS (what ever you want to call it). This is due to the contemporary browsers complaining about the non encrypted HTTP version. All old links will still work, they will simply be redirected to the matching HTTPS version.

QuakeCon BYOC Info

15 03 17 - 11:16

QuakeCon 2017 announced the BYOC registration setup for this year. The quick and dirty (details here) is:

March 30 – BYOC UAC VIP tickets ($400, limit 32)

April 6 – BYOC Quakecon Done Quick ($150, limit 300)

April 13 – BYOC Select a seat ($50, no limit stated).

April 24 – General Admission (free)

As usual the last several years, BYOC costs $ while the general admission to the event is free. If you're in the Dallas/Fort Worth area and think that because you don't have any spare cash so it's not worth going to, the non-BYOC side of the event is amazing. You should still go, it's like a county fair for Quake fans, but free! :) $50 for a BYOC event for a weekend isn't bad either. Right now I just checked and flights for me to Dallas are super-cheap (under $300 round trip, cheaper then the last time I went in 2009!) so hey, if I can come up with several hundred extra buckaroos I might go! :) 

The QuakeCon staff also gave an explanation of what and why things are different this year vs last year, so give that a read. You can read that here.
