Q3A Point Release Update

Robert Duffy updated his .plan with word on the status of the point release after yesterday's broken release:
Point Release status.

We have made the fixes we wanted to make to the latest version, including having the proper pak files in the full installer. We did not make any input code changes between 1.29f and 1.29g, but we did link with a different version of Directx ti get NT Sound functioning properly. This fixed NT 4.0 sound but produced an FPS loss on some systems and changed the way input was working as well which allowed in_mouse == -1 to work like some folks like but causes mouse wheel problems under some versions of Intellipoint. We have since done the following:We are testing this now and should release it in the am.

Pondering the Imponderable

Well, kids, the names-with-spaces bug is still present in the Quake III Arena 1.29g patch. Not only that, but I got the fs_handleforfile: none free error that was in the list of fixed bugs. I'm glad it takes so long for patches to come out and not fix anything.

In brighter news, I downloaded the Diablo II demo. That's right, I'm the only person in the world who has never played Diablo. Now I know what all the fuss is about. I can't stop playing the silly thing. I'll have to pick it up next time its on sale. Maybe I can get it bundled with the new expansion pack.
