This is a fundraiser for the Quake 2 Tastyspleen site/servers, held annually by Defiant! From clan BTF. For every frag against him by the top three players of the night, he'll donate 20 cents. So, if you get 100 frags against him, he donates $20 to help fund the Tastyspleen servers. Last year he donated $126 dollars to help support the Quake 2 Tastyspleen servers.

No signup/registration required, all you need to do is find him on a Tastyspleen server on December 26th at noon EST (9am Pacific) and frag him away! He'll be using the male model and duke skin and the name “[BTF]Defiant!”.

Full details over at Tastyspleen!

John Carmack Left id Software, officially

22 11 13 - 19:53

Well, it was theorized he was leaving id months ago, but now it appears true. IGN quotes Tim Willits as saying John's leaving won't effect any current projects as his work was done on all of them. He's been with id since the beginning so all I can say is best wishes!


Thanks to Sikkpin @ Doom3World for posting about this.

Quake 2 Camo Brightskins

18 09 13 - 11:21

Check it out, Bright Skins (textures for multiplayer models to help you see the other player and make them more obvious compared to the world textures/shading/etc) that looks pretty cool! You've got bright orange camo for the male marine, bright pink for the female marine and bright blue for the cyborg. You need a client that supports PNG's (most modern ones do) so be sure to include these as part of your Quake 2 Skins.
