Alchemy Zone and id

The Alchemy Zone has reprinted (with permission) an article from "The Edge" Magazine from when they visited id Software around the time that the first Q3Test was released. Check it out, it's an interesting read.

I82 Screenshots

PC Gamer Online has some new screenshots from Interstate '82. This looks like it could be a pretty cool game, assuming it ever comes out. Thanks VE.

Even Newer WinAmp

There's an even newer version of WinAmp out now, version 2.50c. This version corrects some presumably minor bugs.

Patience, Grasshopper!

Some people really got their undies in a bundle that the Unreal Tournament release date was not revealed, or that the demo was not released at last night's Avault chat with the Epic folks. I must admit that I'm always amused by people who have more free time than I do. Some of those guys sounded like heroin addicts who were just told that their supplier had "run out."

UT (or Q3A or whatever) will be out whenever it's ready. Personally I'd rather wait for a while than buy a product that takes three patches to get functional. (Like Sin?!? :-) That's also why, with a couple of notable exceptions (TIE Fighter and X-Wing Alliance), I usually wait for a week or two after the release to let the "early adopters" do the testing for me. It's no surprise that LucasArts was one of the first to use the "when it's done" release dates and their products usually require the fewest patches (usually for added features).

Psst, Wanna Make Some Mods?

PlanetQuake has set up two mailing lists for the discussion of Quake 3 mods. The first one, which can be subscribed to at, is "a moderated list for discussion of the actual code, including "how to" questions, the client DLL, porting Quake 2 mods, bugs and fixes, etc." The second, at, is an "unmoderated list . . . for general Quake 3 Coding discussion (e.g. mod ideas, compiling help, general C/coding questions)."

The Master comments: I am SO glad PQ has a web interface for their mailing lists. I sub'd from work. Gotta keep ahead on this stuff ya know!

loonyboi, Day Four (and Last)

loonyboi posts his log for day four of his trip with the Q3A bus across Texas (and heading across the U.S. southeast). He also busts out the digi-camera for some parting shots of the new levels and the fun around the bus.
