New NOLF Demo

Monolith has released an new demo of No One Lives Forever. It includes four single player and two multiplayer maps and is based on the most current NOLF code. I might just snag this one once the mirrors stop being hammered. Here's the scoop from the NOLF team's collective .plan:
Today we are releasing the new and improved NOLF demo! The demo is not an upgrade of the existing tech demo. Instead, it includes all new levels plus all the new features and improved code found in the 1.001 and 1.002 Updates. The specific levels are:As an additional bonus, all of the available multiplayer weapons and gadgets from the full version of the game are also included in the demo!

We hope you'll enjoy!

Unreal II Website Live

The official Unreal II website is now online. It contains tons of screenshots and a FAQ on Legend's follow-up to Epic's hit game. Thanks Blue.

RAMBUS Loses Round One

According to the Electronic News, the judge presiding over RAMBUS v. Infineon made a pre-trial ruling "limiting the scope of Rambus Inc.'s patents". This is only the first of many court battles ahead, but it's nice to see that the success of RAMBUS' litigation is not a given by any means. Thanks Slashdot.

NVIDIA Website Update

NVIDIA finally got their website updated with the links and new FAQ for their new 0.9-767 Linux XFree86 4.x drivers. There are kernel RPMs for Red Hat 6.1 and up and Mandrake 7.1 and up.

Half-Life Patches Released

A little earlier than expected, the Half-Life client patches have been released. They aren't available through the auto-update feature yet, but Blue has a list of mirrors for the patch from (11.4M) and the full patch from any previous version (54.6M). Naturally, with this and the recent Counter-Strike releases, the mirror sites are getting the living daylights beaten out of them.

Retail Counter-Strike 1.1 Released

As foretold, the 1.1 patch for the retail version of Counter-Strike has been released. It's a 19.3M download and is NOT the patch for the downloadable mod version. That is also available at the above link.

New NVIDIA Linux Drivers

I saw on Linux Games last night that NVIDIA had released new (0.9-767) versions of their Linux XFree86 4.x drivers. I wanted to make sure to test them before I posted this. There are no major changes for my TNT2 Ultra, but from what I've read these new drivers fix some major problems with GeForce2s and higher. Their website hasn't been updated yet, but the drivers are available via their FTP site. An updated README is also available there.
