ASUS Cheating Drivers Hacked

Riva 3D is reporting that the ASUS drivers that allowed for see-through textures, among other cheats, were leaked and hacked so that they will now work on any GeForce/GeForce2 card. Please send all flames, hate mail, etc. to the boneheads at ASUS who were stupid enough to come up with this idea in the first place.

Red Hat 7.0 Beta

In an interesting coincidence, I received email today that Red Hat has released a beta of version 7.0 of their popular Linux distribution. You can download it from the usual Red Hat mirror sites. Among the more interesting additions to 7.0 is XFree 4.0.x. I'm bold enough to run beta XFree, but I'm not bold enough to run a beta OS. I'll wait until this one is released in full.

Win2K SP1 Released

Microsoft has released Service Pack 1 for Windows 2000.
Service Pack 1 fixes scores of problems ranging from security issues to ensuring compatibility with more software and devices, and boosting the overall reliability of the program, Microsoft said.
So I guess the lesson to be learned here is download SP1 if you want Win2K to suck less.

FAKK Done?

Ritual's Levelord put down his haunted bong (caution: naughty word alert :) ) long enough to update his .plan which, in a not-so-subtle way, announced that Heavy Metal: FAKK2 is done.
...okay, Mr and Mrs Smartey Pants Weeb Mastors and Whilley Intarneet Reportors, ...quote THIS! ...I'm looking forward to NOT setting my three alarms clocks tonight, ...and tomorrow going to the grocery store, cleaning my still-new-to-me house, renting a shitload of videos, cracking one of my bottles of real Russian (daspidanya, comrades!) vodka, and filling as many bowls as possible. For all you blind bats,'s a wink, wink, nudge, nudge.
Even a bonus Monty Python allusion thrown in for good measure. Such a deal!

Graeme Devine Interview

id's Graeme Devine was interviewed by The Corporation at MacWorld. You can view part one of the interview here and part two here. Here's a passage I found interesting from part one, regarding a new twist to be introduced in Quake III Team Arena:
You'll be able to define your own clan, your own clan colors. When you play on a map, your base will have your clan colors, your clan icon. All the players on your team will have that icon on them, so that you'll be able to easily recognize who they are, whether you're playing home or away, red or blue. We've made some pretty big changes.
Thanks Blue.

Some screenshots from Anox

Shugashack pulled down the new Anacronox snapshot pack that Eidos put up on their FTP, and it has some awesome new shots in it. Check the shack article to take a peek. That bridge shot is WAY cool.
