Tim Sweeney Interview

Beyond3D caught up with Epic's Tim Sweeney, the brains behind the Unreal engine. He talks about their past, the current engine, and where he thinks 3D graphics are heading. Insightful stuff as always from Sweeney. Thanks HardOCP.

NWN 1.62 Patch Released

Bioware has released the 1.62 patch for Neverwinter Nights and its two expansion packs. There is also a full changelog available for your perusal.

Arts/Kernel 2.6.3 Fix

Following some advice on Google Groups, I found a solution to my problem with KDE 3.2's arts not playing nicely with the ALSA drivers in Linux kernel 2.6.3 (story). I recompiled arts, kdelibs, and kdemultimedia using the ./configure --with-alsa. Now I can be free of the 2.6.2 exploit and have arts actually work at the same time. Special thanks go out to Jean-Christophe Fargette who created the Slackware packages for KDE 3.2 and answered some questions for me.

New JA Siege Map

Raven's Kenn Hoekstra updated his .plan (remember those?) with word that they have released a new Siege map for Jedi Academy (with X-Wings and TIE Fighters, no less!) and some new tutorials on creating Siege maps. The .plan has mirrors to both the map and tutorials.

UPDATE Raven's Mike Gummelt also updated his .plan with some tips for people running Siege servers.
