CBP2 Coming May 17

The Community Bonus Pack team has announced that CBP2 for Unreal Tournament 2004 will be released on May 17. Check the CBP website for the full announcement. They will also be porting the original CBP to UT2K4, but no firm date has been set for that. Apparently, this is just UT2K4 goodies day. Thanks Planet Unreal.

XMP Coming to UT2K4

Free Monkey announced that they have received permission from the former Legend Entertainment to make XMP for Unreal Tournament 2004. XMP is/was the multiplayer component for Unreal II. It's hard to say if this is a direct conversion or if it is more or less "inspired by" XMP. Check Free Monkey's website for more information. They are simply calling it a total conversion for UT2K4. Whatever it will be, it should be interesting. Thanks Beyond Unreal.

Fun with SCO . . . or Something

Here's a little fun from Groklaw for your reading pleasure. DaimlerChrysler is asking that the court throw out SCO's suit against them on the grounds that they haven't used Unix in seven years. Even at that, they have proof of ownership. Even more fun is the fact that SCO dropped its charge that the GPL is unconstitutional. That was the most completely idiotic accusation they had made in this whole process, which is saying quite a lot. I guess they decided to focus on their core stupidity incompetency.

UT2K4 Patch Soon?

I keep hearing rumblings about a patch for Unreal Tournament 2004 being released soon (possibly even today), but I haven't heard anything concrete or official. I'll keep you posted.

Update! Beyond Unreal got a changelog for the patch, but no ETA. The patch, numbered 3197, has been released as a beta to server ops. They also claim it will eliminate the need for you to have the CD/DVD in your drive to play the game, although I don't see that listed on the changelog. Of course, Linux users never needed that :)

Buy WordPerfect Linux Proof-of-Concept

Corel has made their proof-of-concept version of WordPerfect for Linux available for purchase for $30. Basically, it is WordPerfect 8 for Linux updated so that you don't need to install libc5. If you have even the slightest interest in WordPerfect and Linux, please consider buying this to spur Corel on to produce a new version. And no, I don't get a penny from this. You can also read this review of the Linux version and version 12 for Windows. Thanks Slashdot for the link to the review.
