Q3A 1.29f Known Issues

I just got an automated email back from id when I sent a bug report (three files that came with the 1.27g Linux patch are not included with the 1.29f patch). Here are a list of currently known issues, so you know you don't have to submit a report:

Devine on Q3A 1.29 for Mac

id's Graeme Devine updated his .plan with news of a new version of the 1.29f beta patch for Quake III Arena for the Mac OSX and the status of the Mac Classic version.
A new Mac OS X 1.29f Beta is in the process of being posted to the id ftp site.

This fixes some os the issues related to the slow sound code in the first release, many of you had written that timedemos were much faster with sound off than on (more than to be expected).

The filename is quake3-macosx-129f-2.dmg

I'm now working on the Classic release.
Blue's News has some mirrors all set for you Mac heads.

GPL == Scared?

Evan Leibovitch wonders aloud if the GPL exists not so much for freedom, but more out of fear, namely the fear that your code will become a part of a closed source project. BSD fans could care less and are happy if their stuff gets used that way. Personally, I think this fear--the fear of closed source software--is the only reason the GPL is as popular as it is. Thanks Linux Today.

Episode I on DVD

Pretty much everyone in the world is reporting that the official Star Wars website has announced that Episode I: The Phantom Menace will be released on DVD on October 16. Here's to hoping they get the original trilogy on DVD soon too.

Jaquays on Q3:TA Models

id's Paul Jaquays updated his .plan with documents showing you how to make new team models for Quake III: Team Arena. You can snag the docs in HTML format or rich text format.
