Overdose New Year Updates

04 01 16 - 11:56

It's been a while but Overdose has some news about tools and engine upgrades. I don't want to post all the info here (as it's a lot) but, to sum it up: they've got a new custom Radiant, game code as been added to let the player fire & reload, UI's been updated, completely updated sound system (remember, Q2 came out almost two decades ago!), and a fully scriptable particle & FX system.

You can read all the details over at their page. By the way, they're not going to keep their own domain & webpage any more, they found that almost noone used it so they feel it's not worth the money.

OverDose is a class, team& objective based multiplayer game set on a post apocalyptic Earth, were the Confederate Marine Corps and Marauders battle it out for supremacy over the destroyed cities of a war torn world. Using idTech2 as a base, we are writing our engine from the ground up to take advantage of modern day graphical options and details levels to bring you eye popping class based multiplayer mayhem. This isn’t just war... Its an all out apocalypse!

IqeBrowser Bugfix

21 08 15 - 10:59

Several days ago IqeBrowser 2.11 was released. Apparently a memory access violation crept in there so a new version was release. If you got the previous one, download 2.12 & replace the old one. 

IqeBrowser is a program to open and modify various 3D model formats for export to the Inter Quake Model format (IQM or IQE). You can see a video if it in action below.

IqeBrowser 2.11 Out

19 08 15 - 10:36

What is IqeBrowser? IqeBrowser is a program to browse IQE, IQM (Inter-Quake Model format) and many other 3D models. Any 3D model can be saved as IQM (a binary format) or IQE (a text format) file. Some model processing tools are integrated to resize, shift, rotate, reskin ... the model and also to create/ modify skeletons or animations.

IQM/IQE is a format supported in the Darkplace engine (Quake) and Yet Another 3D Adventure Game (Quake 2).

The latest feature is animation re-targeting, so you can take (for example) a walk animation from one character and apply it to another character. You can download the latest version from and be sure to check out the authors project YA3DAG!
